Introducing the Virtual Swap!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily swap out old virtual munzees in popular destinations for newer virtuals worth more points? Well now you can!

We’re excited to announce that you can now easily swap out many virtual munzees!

Using the Munzee website you can now go back to your older virtual type munzees and swap in new virtual types and MVMs. By using the Virt Swap tool, you can instantly archive your old virtual type munzee and deploy the new one in the exact same spot. No waiting periods and no losing your spot! This also opens up the opportunity for players to re-capture high density areas, if new virtuals are deployed.

With the Virt Swap tool almost any virtual type can be replaced by almost any virtual type.**

For example, you can swap an old green virtual for a new virtual sapphire in the exact same location. You could also swap an old yellow mystery virtual for a new MVM and add a yellow color credit. It’s good as new and ready for people to come and cap it! Imagine the cap on points you will receive with the strategically placed MVM versus the old virtual points.

Please note that when you swap out an old virtual you must use a new munzee that has not been previously deployed. Since you’re swapping out for a totally new munzee the points for the old virt captures will not change.

To celebrate the release of this new tool MVMs are on sale for $4 and for every MVM purchased you’ll get a free color credit as well. Go to the Munzee Online Store and stock up now! 

To swap out a virtual just do the following:

  1. Go to your online Munzee profile.
  2. Go to your undeployed munzees and copy the number code from the replacement virtual item URL.
  3. Go to your deployed munzees and choose the virtual you want to replace.
  4. Click “Edit Details,” scroll down and paste the new number code in the specified area.

Check out the video below to see the Virt Swap in action (you may need to pause and rewind to fully get it):

**You cannot change any of the following munzees using the Virt Swap tool:

All Physicals
All MHQ created Virtual Gardens
Social
Event Pin
Virtual Emerald
Personal Munzee
Event Indicator
Virtual Trail
Virtual Resort

6th Birthday Events UPDATE

Hello from a swelteringly hot London!

I hope you’re all getting excited about July and all the 6th Birthday events. There are 80 on the calendar to choose from! It’s not too late to get your events on there, it’s quite late for artwork though, our designers’ diaries are full to bursting and we can only accommodate pretty simple requests for July at this stage I’m afraid.

Trish has recently finished the badges for attending and hosting, they are SUPER! Here is a sneak preview for you. There are 4 host badges up for grabs, the Super Scott, Super Matt, Super Trish and Super Dylan. I’m on the Attendee Badge and there is an icon featuring Super Rob for everyone who goes to a Birthday event and captures the Event Indicator Pin.

Don’t forget that Dan the Man will be giving freebies to all attendees when they capture the event badge if the host has opted for that $20 extra and there will be surprises thrown in for all Birthday events as per usual, don’t miss out, plan your event today!

Stay safe and Munzee On!

Introducing the Water Mystery Munzee!

The floodgates have opened and the latest Elemental Munzee is now for sale- Welcome the Water Mystery Munzee!

This physical munzee type may hold the key to the Fountain of Youth, but it is not without its risks. When you cap a Water Mystery Munzee three water droplets will scatter to greenies within one mile of the surrounding area. When you cap the scattered droplet you have the chance of drinking pure water, toxic water or salt water. Depending on the cleanliness of the water you will either earn points, lose points, or nothing will happen.

The water will evaporate after two hours though so be quick! Water Mysteries will also attract Hydra Mythological Munzees soon as well.

Name: Water Mystery Munzee

Points:
Deploy: 50
Cap/CapOn: Split of 60 with min of 5.

When captured, three water droplets spread on greenies within a mile.

These have three outcomes:

  • Pure Water: Cap: 50, CapOn: 10
  • Salt Water: Cap: 0, CapOn: 0
  • Toxic Water: Cap: -5, CapOn: 10

Availability

Water Mystery Munzees are available NOW in the Munzee Online Store. They are physical stickers sold in blocks of 10 for $20 USD.

You can also stock up on Fire, Ice and Earth Mysteries in the Elemental Munzee Pak which will include 10 Fire, Ice and Earth Mystery Munzees for $40. You can also find these in the Munzee Online Store.

Capturing Water Mystery Munzees will also help count toward the new Elemental Munzee badges too!

Have fun, and #MunzEE on! #E1EW

Player of the Week: Brian Glaski (cachewhisperer)

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, Brian Glaski (cachewhisperer).

Who are you?
Brian G. aka cachewhisperer

Where in the world do you live?
Currently Orlando, FL

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been a member since 2012

How did you find Munzee?
I was on a road trip with War1man and Rosieree to WV for a Hatfield and McCoy Tour hosted by some great friends. Every now and then along the way, Warren would find a munzee nearby and run back to the car to grab his phone. That night, at dinner in a local restaurant, there was a QR code on a ketchup bottle. Making a joke to YankaBucs about scanning the ketchup munzee, it turned out to be worth 1 point. I was shocked and downloaded the app. That ketchup bottle was my second munzee scanned after a regular virtual.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I enjoy the walking aspect of the game. I’m very competitive with points, but I will never let the original intention of the game to get people out walking for exercise to escape me.

What is on your wish list?
One day, I would like to get over to Europe and see where their Munzee trails bring me. Or maybe even a clan war month with no virtual captures/CapOns. Just physicals. I like a challenge.

Tell us about yourself!
I am a paramedic working my way up with training and experience and eventually have a goal of becoming a firefighter/paramedic in NH.

Other hobbies include:
From time to time I do enjoy taking out the golf clubs and smacking a few around. My game has improved quite a bit lately, so if MHQ is up for a challenge… Haha.

Any last words?
Isn’t this what they ask you before pulling the switch on the electric chair? I’d like to say thanks to the MHQ staff for all that they do. It’s not an easy job pleasing everyone, but there are many that appreciate what you do.

Player of the Week: Timo Sivonen (Sivontim)

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, Timo Sivonen (Sivontim).

Who are you?
My name is Timo Sivonen, and my username is Sivontim.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Helsinki, Finland.

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing since September 2013.

How did you find Munzee?
I was playing another GPS game, looking for hidden Tupperware and found my first Munzee code. I didn’t have a suitable device to scan it. Later, I got a new tablet and decided to test it. I drove 70 km from our cabin to the nearest code and captured my first munzee. I purchases a Premium Membership that same day.

Around my home there were only a few greenies, and for more codes, I needed to drive around the city to capture single codes. The idea of trails came later. Now, there is a huge “candy shop” for the beginners, and I’m still driving around capturing all of the mythologicals.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I like getting out ans seeing places that I would not have found unless there was a munzee there. I have also met many new friends who play the game.

I enjoy the Clan Wars and all kinds of charity campaigns with the specials on the Munzee map.

I like the way the game is constantly changing and growing up.

What is on your wish list?
I would like to get an Emerald Garden in Helsinki.

I would also like the option of upgrading old Mystery Virtuals for a small fee so that those could then be capped again by anyone who capped it previously.

For the events, I would like a new kind of Personal Munzee that players could capture again at every event.

Tell us about yourself!
I’m 46 years old and working as a project manager in the ICT company. If I’m not munzeeing, I’m photographing or editing my pics. I love to “shoot” all kinds of birds and other animals in the wild and at the local zoo.

Other hobbies include:
My hobbies along with Munzee are photography and genealogy.

Any last words?
I would like to thank those whom nominated me. And thank you, MHQ, for keeping the game changing and making it fun. Munzee on!
