Go To Battle With The Ogre AlternaMyth!

Leprechauns may be better known for their greenie-ness in March, but this month we’re excited to introduce you all to a not-so-jolly green giant! Say hello to the Ogre AlternaMyth Munzee!

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 Ogre. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of the Ogre’s ferocious friend the Cyclops.

As the AlternaMyth to the Cyclops Mythological Munzee the Ogre’s hunger for jewels is only overcome by his thirst for battle!  Ogres are attracted to greenies, physical and virtual Jewel Munzees, as well as physical and virtual Clan Weapon Munzees*.

  • Greenies
  • Amethyst (V)
  • Sapphire (V)
  • Diamond
  • Ruby
  • Pink Diamond
  • Topaz
  • Aquamarine
  • Mace
  • Longsword
  • Battle Axe
  • The Hammer
  • Crossbow (V)

*Ogres are not currently attracted to Catapult or Boulder Munzees, but may be in the future. 

Ogres can be a bit tough to handle, but you might be able to trap one with a Munzee Magnet! You can also show your Ogre pride with a new decal sticker. You can find Magnets, decals stickers, Jewel Munzees and more in the online store! 

Capturing an Ogre will also count towards the Myth Collector badges so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those ferocious fighters.

Good luck on your journey and remember to Go Green!

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 The Fire Pegasus and Virtual Magnets!

As we welcome the new year, we’re also excited to welcome a new AlternaMyth- set the skies ablaze with the Fire Pegasus Mythological Munzee! As the first Classical AlternaMyth these winged creatures are sure to light the way for you in your Myth searches.

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 Fire Pegasus. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of a normal Pegasus.

This fiery flyer is just like the normal Pegasus and hovers to all colors of Virtual Munzees, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured. As the name may allude, the Fire Pegasus will also bounce to Fire Mystery Munzees.

Although this Myth’s blazing speed will make it a tough one to find, we’re excited to announce the release of the Virtual Magnet as well! Much like the regular Munzee Magnet the item will attract up to three Mythologicals for up to one hour. You can add Virtual Magnets to any color of MVM and they will attract Pegasus and Fire Pegasus munzees. 

Like the Munzee Magnets, Virtual Magnets are $1/each with a limit of 10 every 15 days. Virtual Magnets are available NOW, and you can find them in the Munzee Online Store here. Be on the lookout for even more uses for the Virtual Magnet in the near future, too!

Capturing a Fire Pegasus will count towards the Myth Collector badges too.

Good luck chasing these high-flying, fiery friends!

International “Thank You” Day Specials!

Rob realized writing individual “Thank You” notes to everyone wasn’t exactly feasible, so we decided to go in a different direction. In celebration of International Thank You Day, we’re proud to announce we’re celebrating in the best way possible: By sending out “Thank You” cards! Over the next few days you’ll be able to capture “Thank You” note specials from Louise, Rob and Matt.

“Thank You” cards from Louise, Matt and Rob!

The International Thank You Day specials will go live on the map at 00:01 Thursday January 11th and last through 23:59 on Sunday January 14th. There will be 1,000 of each of the icons (3,000 in total) bouncing on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. When you cap any of these icons, you will earn 18 points, and the owner of the host munzee will earn 11 points.

We know what you’re thinking: What good is a “Thank You” card if you can’t read what’s inside? Well when you capture one of the icons you’ll also earn the badge for that “Thank you” note and get to see what the cards says. Will you be able to capture all three?

Per usual these will also count toward the Special Hunter badge line, so be sure to cap as many as you can! You can capture these specials on your own munzees and they will all be attracted to Magnets.

Thank you once again to our awesome community of players! We couldn’t do all of this without you and we’re so thankful to have you as a part of our game. Now get out and Munzee on, because #TheTimeIsNow!

Find Your Footing With The Sasquatch Yeti!

This holiday season we’re proud to announce a new friendly fellow has joined The Rainbow UnicornGnome Leprechaun, and Ice Dragon. Welcome The Sasquatch Yeti, the final phase one AlternaMyth! He’s a bit more down to Earth than his furry cousin, but he’s still as cool as can be.

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 Sasquatch Yeti. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of normal Yetis.

Similar to normal Yetis, this large footed fellow bounces to Greenies and Ice Mystery Munzees every 12 hours, but as a forest dweller he’s also attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees. You can make it one (large) step easier and use a Munzee Magnet as wellCapturing Sasquatch Yetis will count towards the Myth Collector badges too.

We also have Sasquatch Yeti (as well as all of the other Myths and AlternaMyths) decals in the Munzee Online Store.

Good luck chasing these furry forest friends!

Christmas 2017 Special

Christmas is right around the corner, and people around the world are getting ready to celebrate. For some, that means bundling up and getting ready to play in the snow. For others, shorts and a t-shirt will be the attire of the season. Our Christmas special accounts for both of those groups.

Beginning now (15:00 MHQ time on December 15th), 1009 Sun icons and 1009 Snowflake icons (2018 in total) will be on the map. These specials will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. When you cap either of these icons, you will earn 20 points, and the owner of the host munzee will earn 18 points. These icons will leave the map at 23:59 MHQ time on Sunday, December 31st.

There are three badges that can be earned during this special:

  • Winter Wonderland – Capture at least one (1) Snowflake icon.

  • Christmas in the Sun – Capture at least one (1) Sun icon.

  • Wacky Weather Christmas – Cap at least one (1) Snowflake icon and at least one (1) Sun icon.

These icons are attracted by Magnets, you CAN capture these icons on your own munzees, and these will count toward the Special Hunters badge line.

We hope you enjoy this special! Have fun capping!

Chill out with the Ice Dragon!

We’re excited to announce that The Rainbow Unicorn and Gnome Leprechaun have a new friend- The Ice Dragon! This new AlternaMyth may be a bit cold on first greeting, but he’s sure to warm up to you in no time.

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 Ice Dragon. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of normal Dragons. 

Similar to normal Dragons, this icy fellow is still a fiery force to be reckoned with and bounces to Greenies and Fire Mystery Munzees every 12 hours, but as the name suggests will also be attracted to Ice Mystery Munzees. You can also pull one of these rare globetrotters closer to you with a Munzee Magnet. Capturing Ice Dragons will count towards the Myth Collector badges too, so don’t get cold feet!

To celebrate the new AlternaMyth some Authorized Munzee Resellers will be offering discounts on Fire and Ice Mystery Munzees, so be sure to check out their individual stores!

Good luck chasing these chilly creatures and be sure to dress warm- and bring a fire extinguisher!

Introducing the Gnome Leprechaun!

Last month in celebration of MHQ Bash we introduced the first AlternaMyth- The Rainbow Unicorn. Well our colorful buddy now has a new friend bouncing around and causing mischief- The Gnome Leprechaun!

In the spirit of friendship we have deployed Gnome Leprechauns for both Team Munzee and our pals over at Freeze Tag! So there are now 26 Gnome Leprechauns bouncing around the map. We have also added a Rainbow Unicorn for each Freeze Tag team member bringing the total to 26.

AlternaMyths are Mythological Munzees deployed on behalf of members of Team Munzee exclusively. You’ll get 200 points for capping the Gnome Leprechaun. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of normal Leprechauns (e.g. if the Gnome Leprechaun lands on a Shamrock, the owner will receive 34 points; if it lands on a greenie, the owner will earn 12 points).

Like normal Leprechauns the Gnome bounces to greenies and shamrocks every 12 hours, but as a fan of gardens they will also be attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees. You can also pull one of these rare globetrotters closer to you with a Munzee Magnet

Good luck on hunting down these traveling Gnomes and remember to leave a picture for us!

Munzee on!

Introducing the Rainbow Unicorn!

As many of you probably know, we like chasing Mythological Munzees quite a bit. It isn’t a surprise to see Rob, Matt, or other members of Team Munzee capture your Mythological and leave a funny (or so we think) picture on it. We want to see the same thing, too. You know us, though. We like to stand out a bit. That’s where the Rainbow Unicorn comes in.

These Rainbow Unicorn Mythological Munzees (or as they’re known around MHQ, “AlternaMyths”) are a bit different than the Unicorns currently out in the wild. Rainbow Unicorns will be deployed by members of Team MHQ exclusively.

Tomorrow (September 22nd) at 00:01 MHQ time, 20 Rainbow Unicorns (1 on each Team Munzee members’ account) will be deployed. Looks aren’t the only difference, though. For capturing a Rainbow Unicorn, you will earn 200 points. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of normal Unicorns (e.g. if the Rainbow Unicorn lands on a Shamrock, the owner will receive 34 points; if it lands on a greenie, the owner will earn 12 points).

Some things don’t change between the Unicorn and the Rainbow Unicorn, though. As noted above, Rainbow Unicorns will land on both greenies and Shamrocks. They will still bounce every 12 hours or when captured. And, of course, Rainbow Unicorns will be attracted by Magnets.

Have fun chasing our Rainbow Unicorns, and make sure to leave pictures for us!

Munzee on!
