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.

MunzFit Coin Of The Month- $7.50- Buy HERE

To celebrate our MunzFit 2.0 events, we’re releasing a Munzee Coin featuring last year’s cycling logo. The soft enamel coin can be logged and discovered in the Munzee app, so it’s perfect if you plan on attending a few MunzFit events.

Premium Personal Tag- $10- Buy HERE

Personal Munzees were introduced to incorporate a more social aspect to the game while allowing you to earn points. The new Premium Personal takes this a step further by allowing you to link other Personal Munzees for quick deployment. Please note that you must have a Premium Account Membership to purchase a Premium Personal and you can only buy one premium tag a year.

WallaBee Coin- $10- Buy HERE

This brushed metal honeycomb coin features the WallaBee mascot and was another awesome item introduced at MHQ Bash. This coin may be a WallaBash keepsake, but it can also be logged and discovered in the Munzee app as well.

MHQ Bash Recap and Galleries

MHQ Bash has come and gone and needless to say we had a great time. We could spend many hours going into fine detail the times that were had, but we’ll try and keep it brief. That being said if we release a 4 hour long videocast in the near future, you’ll know why.

Take a quick look back on some of the weekend’s highlights. Follow the links to see photo galleries, share your favorites and remember to join us again next year!

Friday- Registration and Casino Night

We kicked off MHQ Bash 4 Registration on Friday night with casino games, some musical performances and a whole lot of fun! The Royal Flush Family was shuffling around and a certain jester kept the crowd entertained.

Major thanks goes to Cecie and the MHQ admin staff for making this one of the quickest and easiest registrations we’ve ever had! We had way more time for fun activities like our TazkMaster team building project.

Check out photos from the event HERE.

Check out the Eventzee gallery HERE.

 

Saturday Morning- Eventzee Activity Scavenger Hunt

Viva Las Vegas! We had a whole slew of casino-themed activities Saturday morning that left our players screaming “ALL IN!” Players had to locate each of the 10 activity stops, complete a specific challenge, and answer a quiz question after scanning the station’s QR code. The King himself even showed up!

Check out photos from the event HERE.

Check out the Eventzee gallery HERE.

 

Saturday Afternoon- WallaBash

WallaBee and Munzee players came together at The Hive (MHQ) for the first official gathering of the Bees and the Zees! WallaBee artist Andy Cameron signed players’ passports, Robbie and the BeeKeepers kept the party buzzing, and many prizes were won. We were surprised by how many people were in attendance, so expect next year’s WallaBash to be even bigger!

Check out photos from the event HERE.

 

Saturday Night- Oktoberfest

Our players helped us wind down the evening at the site of the very first MHQ Bash: Downtown McKinney’s Oktoberfest! We met at the former Munzee Marketplace (RIP) and explored all of the German festivities throughout. After a long day, taking a relaxing stroll through Downtown McKinney and capping the event trail was a perfect end.

Check out the Eventzee gallery HERE.

 

Sunday Morning- MunzFit 3K Race

MHQ Bash came to an end by kicking off our MunzFit 2.0 program! Everyone who could make it joined us in 3K race around Towne Lake in McKinney. Even though some could have used a bit better of a stretch before the race (looking at you Dylan) the weather was great and everyone had a good time.

Check out the Eventzee gallery HERE.

Thank you to the members of Team Munzee for making this a year to remember, to those worldwide who deployed in the area, and of course to everyone who joined us in McKinney! Stay tuned for news regarding MHQ Bash 5 soon! This year will be hard to beat, but hey we have a year to plan.

As always, Munzee on!

Team Munzee Meets the TazkMaster

Over the weekend, MHQ Bash attendees were given the chance to look behind the veil at what Team Munzee does in its free time. We introduced them to a new team building project we’ve been working on called TazkMaster!

Based on the British comedy game show Taskmaster*, our version sees the Munzee staff split into teams and tasked with completing bizarre and vague challenges for points. The teams are given very little information regarding how they complete their Tazks, so they have to work together to succeed.

Prior to the MHQ Bash reveal, the teams had no clue what they were doing or how they were doing compared to the other teams. At Casino Night Friday, TazkMaster Rob and Tazktician Dylan unveiled a compiled video of the first two Tazks.

Tazk 1: FTC (Freeze To Capture)

Objective: Thaw out the hidden Ice Munzee and scan it for points. You can use objects that have been hidden around the room, but you must be quick.  

In this challenge each team had to thaw out an Ice Munzee from a bowl of frozen water. They could use any items in the room to access the munzee, but not all items were easily seen. Some of the teams were quick to crack the code, while others just blew a bunch of hot air.

Tazk 2: Alphabet Zoup

Objective: Your team needs to put their heads together to fill out the Munzee Alphabet Zoup form. Name as many munzee types as you can for each letter of the Alphabet in under 2 minutes. A is for Amethyst, B is for Battle Axe, etc. Each letter will only count once. 

For this Tazk our teams had to come up with a munzee for each letter of the alphabet. Easy right? Well for a group who works 40 hours a week with Munzee, you might expect a little more out of us…

Finally, after revealing the videos of the first two Tazks Friday night we announced that a third Tazk was going to be preformed live in front of the audience! While the video for this won’t be released for a few weeks, we figured we could let you all in on the worst-kept secret in Team Munzee history.

Tazk 3: Munzee Melodeez

Objective: Show the crowd at MHQ Bash a good time and come up with some Munzee Melodeez. Using your team’s instrument, write a Munzee-themed jingle set to a well known song’s beat. You have 15 minutes to plan your song in private. Encourage the crowd to sing along and wow the TazkMaster who is judging the jingles.

In the middle of Friday’s Casino Night event, Dylan pulled the team’s away individually to announce the surprise Tazk. Each team had 15 minutes to prepare their songs and surprisingly there were some bonafide hits!

Be on the lookout for the compilation video soon, as well as the updated team scores.

We also announced that Tazk 3 was just the beginning of these TazkMaster shenanigans. Throughout the coming months we’ll be challenging our teams more and more, with a grand finale at next year’s MHQ Bash. You won’t want to miss out, so keep up with our Tazks as they’re released and join us again next year at MHQ Bash 5!

*Please note that we don’t have anything to do with the British game show Taskmaster. This isn’t a tease of something else to come, just a fun team-building exercise internally. It just happened to turn out very funny and worth sharing with our friends worldwide!

Introducing the Premium Personal Munzee!

We introduced Personal Munzees as a way to incorporatea more social aspect to the game while allowing you to earn points. Since then, Personals have taken on a life of their own in the game. Now, we’re introducing the next step: the Premium Personal.

Like the original Personal Munzee, the Premium Personal can be deployed up to three times per day and has a one mile capture radius. The Premium Personal has some upgrades, though. For starters, a Premium Personal has a higher point structure:

  • Capture/CapOn: Split of 100 points, minimum 20 points
  • Deploy: 25 points — You only receive deploy points for the original deploy, not every time it is deployed.

Premium Personals also have another trick up their sleeve — you can link other Personal Munzees to a Premium Personal for quick deployment. You still have to capture each Personal individually. On the details page of a Premium Personal, you will see a button called “Slave Munzees”.

On the next page, you will see a space to enter the URL for one of your other Personal Munzees. NOTE: This ONLY works with Personal Munzees, and they must be owned by you.

After you click “Link Munzee”, your Personal Munzee will show up underneath the URL field. You can manage the Personals linked to your Premium Personal on this page.

Premium Personal Munzees will be launching TONIGHT at MHQ Bash. All attendees who purchased a package (this does not include the “Ace High” free package) will receive a Premium Personal (seen below).

Premium Personal Munzees will be available in the Munzee Online Store next week. Premium Personals will only be available to Premium Members, and you will only be able to buy 1 per year. Keep an eye on the blog for more information about their availability.

We hope you enjoy the new Premium Personal Munzee!

Munzee on!

New Personal Munzee Badges!

With MHQ Bash and MunzFits events about to kick off, we wanted to encourage our players to interact with one another using Personal Munzees. We’re excited to announce that we have extended our line of badges for capturing Personal Munzees!

The three new badges will require you to meet lots of new people, which is perfect for the upcoming event season! These badges will go live Thursday September 21st at 12:00 MHQ. We won’t release all of the badge requirements (we like to keep you guessing!) but below is a look at the V.I.P. badge.

Remember that you can purchase Personal Munzees through official Munzee Resellers or event hosts, at the discretion of hosts. We’re excited to meet all sorts of new players this weekend, so be sure to have all of your Personals deployed!

V.I.P.- Capture 250 Personal Munzees
