We’re excited to announce a new version of the Eventzee app (and logo!) will be available for download later this week! The latest version of Eventzee has been totally reworked to offer virtual events and scavenger hunts for any occasion.
As excited as we are for the Eventzee team, there will be a transition period regarding the new app. You can read all about the new features, exciting partnerships, and more on the Eventzee blog. The purpose of this announcement on the Munzee blog is to identify some of the key changes, and how they affect Munzee and Eventzee’s relationship.
The new Eventzee app is an entirely new build, so when the new app is available you will not update your current version of the Eventzee app. Instead, you will need to search for the new version in your phone’s app store. This means that the Eventzee database has been restructured as its own and will no longer be a part of Munzee.
New User Sign-up:
Since Eventzee will no longer be sharing databases, Munzee and Eventzee accounts will no longer be linked. So if you choose to join an Eventzee hunt you will need to create a new account.
Moving forward, Eventzee hunts will no longer be an additional add-on item for Munzee Events. This means that bonus points, and badges, etc will no longer be available for future events. However, this is subject to change as we develop our plan on incorporating this new app into Munzee events!
Please note that some Fall Into Spring events with Eventzee packages are still scheduled on the calendar. These will continue as planned, but players will need to use the previous Eventzee app in order to participate. The new app will be replacing the older app in the App and Play Stores at the end of this week. So if you wish to participate in these Munzee Event hunts you need to make sure to keep the older version of the app on your phone since you will not be able to redownload it.
Eventzee Legacy Badges
Badges currently available to be earned in Eventzee will become legacy badges. Legacy badges earned will still show in the Munzee app, and any Eventzee hunts completed on the old system (for example at a Fall Into Spring event) will count toward them. The new Eventzee app will not show these badges.
Eventzee Themed Huntz
The themed scavenger hunts sold earlier this year will not be available in the new Eventzee app. Anyone who purchased these hunts will still be able to finish them using the old Eventzee app. As stated above, the old app will be supported for the time being, but you must have it downloaded to your phone before the new app is released.
We appreciate all of your support and hope that should your company, family, or organization need a customized scavenger hunt tool you look no further than Eventzee. This new app is top of the line, and will be able to offer more opportunities than the previous app has ever been able to. Thank you all again, we’re excited to see where Eventzee goes from here!
