Announcing Halloween Event Packages and Event Munzee Point Update!

Due to popular demand we are running a special events package for Halloween this year!

Similar to what we’ve done with MunzFit events before, it’s a set package with a generic badge that can be customised for your event. Halloween event packages are available for events scheduled between Friday 12th October to Wednesday 31st October.

Halloween Packages are $125 and include:

  • A Basic Event with 50 event pins
  • Removal of Proximity Rules on event account
  • Generic Halloween Badge customised to your event (name and date)
  • Choice of one of three Halloween themed icons
  • 10 Temporary Virtuals
  • Halloween Event Host Badge (for up to 4 hosts)

That’s a $155 value, but this scary good deal won’t last long! Please submit your events on the calendar: https://calendar.munzee.com/submit and look out for some Halloween events near you!

We’re also excited to announce that once Halloween events kick off we will increase the points on munzees you can only find at Events! Effective 00:01 October 12 Event Pins will be worth 10 points each and Event Indicator Pins will be worth 100 points each. Your Event Badge will be worth 500 points and a CoExist Munzee will be 200 points. These points will be effective moving forward for all events permanently after October 12.*

So dust off your witch’s hat and get ready for a frighteningly fun time!

Munzee On!

Louise
Munzee Worldwide Events Manager

*All events moving forward will receive 50 event pins and proximity between event pins will be 100 feet. Effective date is October 12.

Now Accepting Munzee 4.0 Beta Testing Applications!

*BETA APPLICATIONS HAVE CLOSED* 

Howdy Munzeers!

We have been avidly working on the latest version of Munzee and want to get your feedback. To ensure that this is the best experience for all of you, we’re doing things a bit differently than we have in the past.

We invite you to participate in a closed beta to provide us feedback and help us improve the app before we launch to the public. We have a very limited number of spots to accept testers. Please note that although you may have tested a version of the Munzee app in the past, that does not lock your spot on this beta test.

Please sign up using this Google Form to be entered into the random lottery for our beta groups. We will contact you if you have been selected. This application form will close on Tuesday September 4, 2018.

We look forward to hearing your feedback and we’re excited for more news regarding the worldwide release soon!

Good luck and Munzee on!

*About motor neurone disease (MND) and the MND Association:

  • MND is a fatal, rapidly progressing disease that affects the brain and spinal cord.
  • It attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles no longer work. MND does not usually affect the senses such as sight, sound, feeling etc.
  • It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breathe.
  • It affects people from all communities.
  • It kills around 30% of people within a year of diagnosis, and 50% within 21 months.
  •  A person’s lifetime risk of developing MND is up to 1 in 300.
  • Six people per day are diagnosed with MND in the UK.
  • It affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time.
  • It kills six people per day in the UK, this is just under 2,200 per year
  • It has no cure. The MND Association was founded in 1979 by a group of volunteers with experience of living with, or caring for, someone with MND. Since then, we have grown significantly, with an ever-increasing community of volunteers, supporters and staff, all sharing the same goal – to support people with MND and everyone who cares for them, both now and in the future.
  • We improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers.
  • We fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND.
  • We campaign and raise awareness so the needs of people with MND, and everyone who cares for them, are recognised and addressed by wider society.

Letter From Zee Prez

Howdy Munzeers!

It’s time for a quick update on the overall progress and direction of Munzee! Over the past few months we’ve made some changes to the game and been working behind the scenes on a new version of the app. While I don’t have all of the details to share with you today I’d like to give you some information to help you know where we are headed.

As we move toward the 4.0 version of the Munzee app we are preparing many things behind the scenes. One of those is a much needed update to the point structure. In the beginning there was one type of Munzee, affectionately nicknamed the greenie. Other types were added over time with each becoming more and more valuable. The greenie sat in the shadows even though it is the cornerstone to the game. I want you to know that we have a plan for greenie points and it’s going to be rolled out soon. We love the greenie as much as you do and want to return the cornerstone to it’s place in the sun! In the meantime we will continue to update the point structure of many other types. You may notice the majority of point updates have happened to physical Munzee types. There is a purpose behind that as we know physical gameplay accomplishes our goals to get people active and moving. You will see us continue to drive the physical portion of the game forward since it is the majority of deploys worldwide, and always will be. Thanks for your patience during this big point update project.

Munzee 4.0 is a very large project as well. We aren’t quite ready to put it in the hands of beta testers yet, but we are feeling good about the progress through our alpha testing recently. The app is getting a complete makeover while the functionality you’ve come to expect will remain intact. The core gameplay is our focus while we also cleanup many side menus and organize features in a better way. We think you’re really going to enjoy it and can’t wait to get it out there in the field being tested. Stay tuned for more updates including information about beta testing and changes before the full launch of version 4.0.

I hope you’ve been participating in the variety of ways Munzee offers through gameplay options. We have events put on by players all of the world. Participate in Clan wars and join a group of 10 worldwide players to compete monthly in order to try and reach goals and win prizes. Recruiting for monthly clan wars is open on the 1st and 2nd of each month. You can also challenge yourself to complete our daily and weekly ZeeOps to earn prizes. We have plans to continue updating and evolving each of these interactive styles of gameplay after 4.0 launches and we can focus on each individually.

There are portions of the game you may think we’ve forgotten about, but believe me when I say that we have not. Munzee is huge and an intricate tapestry so we have to work on it one piece at a time currently! Remember our theme for the year? The Time Is Now! We remember and we’re working hard every day to make updates and keep things fresh. Please help us by growing the game and growing the map! The future of Munzee is so bright and we have so many great things in store. We can’t do any of this without our amazing Munzee community and we remember that fact daily. You are our focus.

Please contact us with questions, suggestions, and issues. My apologies if we don’t respond to every suggestion because we receive so many that we are really working on. The great ones might even make it into the game! I look forward to meeting some of you at upcoming events and interacting with others online!

Munzee On!

Rob Vardeman
Munzee President and Chief Zee Officer 😉

Mystery Munzee Point Increase!

If you’ve been paying attention, you may have noticed that we have slowly been rolling out point updates to a variety of different munzee types. We’re excited to announce that Mystery Munzee points are the latest to be updated! Starting NOW the points for Capturing, Deploying and Cap-Ons for Mystery and Mini Mystery Munzees has been increased to the following:

  • Deploy: 60
  • Capture and CapOn: Split 80 with a minimum of 20 as multiples of 5 (20/60, 30/50, 45/35, etc.)

With this point increase comes a merger of Mini Mysteries and Mysteries as well. Moving forward, both will just be called “Mysteries” regardless of their size**. Please note that this point increase is not retroactive, so past deploys and captures will not be increased.

In celebration of the new Mystery Munzee point structure we have a special offer in the Freeze Tag Online Store! From now until Wednesday at 23:59 MHQ if you buy two packs of Mystery Munzees (5 Pack) you’ll be given *additional stickers in each pack! To take advantage of this offer just buy a minimum of 2 Mystery Munzees in the online store, no code is necessary. Each additional set of 2 purchased will receive added free stickers.

The prevailing theory is that all these recent point increases are linked to the development of Munzee 4.0- and you wouldn’t be wrong in thinking that! Others seem to think the point increases are a drive to promote the physical side of Munzee gameplay and we agree with that theory as well! So stay tuned for more information regarding 4.0, point increases and more.

Munzee on!

*Free stickers will be a minimum $5 value for each order of 2 Mystery Munzee packs. They will be a mix of generic and pre-coded Munzee type stickers.
**Developer side note: the Munzee type code for mystery and minimystery has been combined and only one survives. This note is for those API developers who understand, the rest of us have no need to worry about this line. 😉

Thank you all and Munzee on!
