The Olympics are in full swing right now, and Flat Matt wants to celebrate! Flat Matts will be on the map for the rest of the games, which means that, after being added to the previous scheduled times, they will be active through March 6th at 23:59 MHQ time.

Flat Robs will also be making a surprise appearance and will be active from Monday, February 19th at 00:01 MHQ time through Sunday, February 25th at 23:59 MHQ time.

That’s not all! Today is real Matt’s 26th birthday, so we’re celebrating! From now through Sunday, February 18th at 23:59 MHQ time, Flat Matts will be 26% off in the Munzee Online Store!

Fall In Love With The Cherub AlternaMyth!

It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air! What better day than today to introduce you all to our new AlternaMyth friend: The Cherub! Watch out for that arrow, unless you’re looking for love that is!

As with the other AlternaMyths these Mythological Munzees are deployed on behalf of our HQ staff’s accounts, thus super rare. You’ll get 200 points for capping the Cherub. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of the Cherub’s earthbound cousin the Faun.

As the Faun’s cousin this cute cloud soarer is attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees, but Cherubs will also hover to all colors of Virtual Munzees, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured.

Cherubs are sure to be busy on Valentine’s Day this year, but luckily you can slow one down with a Virtual Munzee Magnet! You can add Virtual Magnets to any color of MVM and they will attract Cherub, Pegasus, and Fire Pegasus munzees.

Capturing a Cherub will also count towards the Myth Collector badges so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those friendly flyers.

Good luck on your journey and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Announcing Secret Admirer Specials!

Love is in the air and it seems you all have a secret admirer or two! Who could it possibly be? The only way to find out is to collect their heart pieces and reveal your true love!

2,800 Secret Admirer Specials will be on the map from 00:01 MHQ time on Tuesday, February 13th through Sunday, February 18th at 23:59. There will be a total of 4 heart pieces (700 of each on the map) and by collecting at least one of each corresponding piece (each side of the heart) you’ll earn a badge for that set.

Since it’s mystery as to who these secret admirers could be, these specials will work a bit differently. The Secret Admirer Specials will bounce on MVMs, Mysteries, Mini Mysteries, and Greenies every 6 hours or when capped. Since these specials bounce on both physical and virtual game pieces, both Munzee Magnets and Virtual Magnets will attract these icons.

Points:

  • Capture – 28
  • CapOn for host owners – 14

Per usual these will also count toward the Special Hunter badge line and you can cap them on your own munzees so be sure to cap as many as you can!

We hope this season is full of love- even if it’s just the love of the game! Happy Valentine’s Day and enjoy this lovely new special. Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Ian Graves (Belboz)

As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Ian Graves (Belboz).

Who are you?
I’m Ian Graves, aka Belboz. In case you are wondering, Belboz is a character in a couple of interactive fiction games I played when I was a teenager.

Where in the world do you live?
Adelaide, South Australia, about a 10 minute drive north of the CBD and Adelaide Oval.

How long have you played Munzee?
Since October 23, 2015.

How did you find Munzee?
I saw a post on Facebook in a Fitbit group, downloaded the app, and walked to a local park to find my first munzee. That’s me in the photo lying on the ground about to capture my first munzee!

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Chasing myths, deploying physical munzees, Clan Wars, events, badges, Munzee Physical League (MPL). And more generally, the fact that there are so many ways to play Munzee, so there is a scope for all players from beginners to high level players to pick a goal and chase it.

What is on your wish list?
Aside from visiting some of the big Munzee cities, I have heaps of things on my wish list — the top 3 are:

  1. More Nomads and the ability to capture them on your own munzee.
  2. The ability to link a generic to a damaged or missing munzee IF it is hosting a bouncing special and IF the owner is dormant or inactive.
  3. More badges for deploying physical munzees, and make them challenging, say around 10% of the corresponding capture badges (i.e. deploy 1250 non-blastable Jewels).

Tell us about yourself!
I’ve been married for 20 years (yay!), and have a 15-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter. Most of our family is in Tasmania, and I’ve been in Adelaide for just over half of my life. I work in Defence R&D which sees me frequently in Canberra. I have an honours degree in Maths and have worked in a number of fields, including operations analysis, biometrics, and risk management.

Other hobbies include:
Interactive fiction, model trains, watching sport.

Any last words?
Thank you to whoever nominated me; it is appreciated. Also, a big thank you MHQ for continuing to evolve the game. And, finally, to everyone reading, I encourage you all to play your own way (an join the MPL)!

Belboz also included some socials, so cap away!

Introducing the AlternaMyth Wrangler Badge!

After the release of both the Myth Wrangler and the Classical Myth Wrangler badges it was only a matter of time until the AlternaMyths got their turn in the crosshairs!

We’re excited to announce that you’ll soon be able to earn the AlternaMyth Wrangler badge for capturing all four AlternaMyths in a single day!

The Rainbow Unicorn, Gnome Leprechaun, Ice Dragon and Sasquatch Yeti are all hard enough to find on their own, but will you be lucky enough to cap them all in one day? Since these Alternative Versions of the first four Mythological Munzees are exclusively deployed by MHQ, this badge is only for the most committed of Myth hunters.

You’ll want to do everything you can to increase your odds, so remember to utilize Munzee Magnets and Elemental Munzees. 

Please note that regular first generation Myths, Classical Myths, or Classical AlternaMyths will not count toward this badge. Unlike the original Myth Wrangler this badge IS NOT retroactive though. The badge will begin awarding at 00:01 MHQ time on Thursday, February 8th.

This one won’t be easy to get, but we believe in you! Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Premium Members to Receive Another Golden Carrot Munzee!

When we launched the Farm Set of Evolution Munzees in September 2016, Premium Members were awarded a special Golden Carrot Evolution Munzee. That was the only time that Golden Carrots have been awarded, and we thought it was time to change that!

On Thursday, February 8th at 10:00 MHQ time, all Premium Members will receive another Gold Carrot Munzee. As a reminder, the Golden Carrot is a credit that is applied to a generic. This will only be a convert option for uncapped greenies in the first 24 hours after deploy or for never deployed undeploys. When deployed it will grow just like the others, reaching golden carrot status in it’s final stage. You must be a Premium Member when the awarding takes place to receive one.

Not a Premium Member yet, or is your Premium Membership about to expire? You still have time! From now until 23:59 MHQ time tomorrow (February 7th), Premium Memberships are $5 off in the Munzee Online Store!

We hope you enjoy your new Golden Carrot Munzees!

Munzee on!

Go Green Munzee Events!

The time has come to reveal the plans for the next lot of Munzee Event Packages! We are inviting you to host Go Green Munzee Events all over the world. Would only be right to kick off these events with the King of Green, St Patrick himself, on Saturday 17th March and run them all the way through Easter and on to Earth Day on Sunday 22nd April.

We would love to see Munzee events encouraging green initiatives such as getting outside, picking up litter and wearing green. In fact, there will be a badge for the winner of the Go Green Competition at each Munzee event during this period. The host needs to send a photo and the player name to me after the event of the attendee that wears the most green clothing.

The packages for these Go Green Events are as follows:
The Seeds Package – Basic event + no proximity = $30
The Sapling Package
– The Seeds Package + 5 Mystery virtuals = $35
The Tree Package
– The Sapling Package + Badge & Icon = $135
The Forest Package
– The Tree Package + Eventzee = $185

Add an Emerald for attendees to any Go Green event for $20

First step is to get your events on the calendar here and let me know your order once your event has been published.

I look forward to working with you and seeing you all Go Green!

Thank you and Munzee On!
