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!

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!

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!

Tour de Cure Update

Last month, we announced that members of Team Munzee would be participating in the DFW Tour de Cure to raise funds and awareness for diabetes. Since then, we’ve also announced MunzFit 2.0 events (as well as MunzFit 2.0 apparel) that will launch at the end of MHQ Bash and run through Tour de Cure. We’re a month out from the Tour de Cure, and we’ve got a few updates.

Munzee

Our Munzee event for Tour de Cure will have a special badge and icon that can be earned. We know everyone isn’t able to make it, but if you can, we’d be happy to see you. You can join our team, come out to cheer us on, or help us raise funds for the American Diabetes Association by donating to our team. If you do join us, we’ll have a Team Munzee tent that we will use as a meeting point.

Eventzee

Eventzee will be partnering with Tour de Cure for a special hunt! We’re currently working with the American Diabetes Association and Tour de Cure to finalize plans, so keep an eye out for more information.

If you haven’t put a MunzFit event on the calendar yet, you still have time! Don’t miss out!

Munzee on!

Get Fit Munzee Trail Recap

Hey, everyone! Matt here. I was off last week, but I wanted to recap my trip to South Carolina for the kickoff of the Get Fit Munzee Trail!

Erica (AgentSmiley) approached us about creating a Munzee trail as part of her Silver Award for Girl Scouts. I, an Eagle Scout myself, loved the idea of using Munzee to help with a community service project for a great organization. The team worked with Erica and her family to plan and release a 30 stop trail in Spartanburg, South Carolina dubbed the Get Fit Munzee Trail. This trail is a permanent fixture on the Munzee map, and can be seen using the Tourism filter.

The trail went live on Saturday, September 2nd with a kickoff event. We spent the morning walking the 2.45 mile walking trail while capping the new Trail Munzees and event icons that had been deployed. This was some players’ first time playing and attending an event, and it was great to see the Munzee community in action helping them learn.

After the morning event, we all went out to cap some more then met up for a “cool down” event to grab some food, enjoy each other’s company, and cap more event munzees.

I had a great time, and I want to thank everyone who came out or supported from afar. I’m happy that we were able to help Erica with her project as well as grow the Munzee community.

Rob and I will be back at events soon, and we can’t wait to meet and see more of you!

Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Marko Lehtonen (matanome)

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 Marko Lehtonen (matanome).

Who are you?
My name is Marko Lehtonen. In the Munzee world, I’m known as matanome. I’m married with two children. At first, our whole family played with the same account, but nowadays, my daughters have their own accounts. My wife, Tarja, still sometimes plays with me on the same account.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Turku, Finland. To those of you who have never heard of Finland, it is a land of a thousand lakes situated in northern Europe. Turku is a beautiful city on the southwest coast of Finland. In Turku, we have a great amount of different types of munzees, so each and every one of you is most welcome here to play with us! Feel free to contact me if you need any kind of help while playing and staying here. 🙂

How long have you played Munzee?
We have played for almost three and a half years now.

How did you find Munzee?
The very first time I heard about the game was from my work mate, but we didn’t create an account and try the game until after my wife had mentioned it to me a bit later. At first, I didn’t like the same as much as my wife and daughters did, but after a knee surgery, I needed to find a reason to walk a lot. Then it really hit me!

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
The main reason I like the game is that it keeps me going. I have lost over 30 kgs just by walking and capturing munzees! I also like meeting new people and making new friends. By playing, I can be outside and enjoy the beautiful nature here in Finland and also get to know many places we have never been to before (even in our hometown!). In the game at the moment, I mostly like capturing free rooms and the Mythological Munzees, and collecting badges, of course.

What is on your wish list?
I have so many wishes! 😀 More badges, of course, and it would be nice to get ZeeOps credits and blast captures as clan rewards every once in a while. I have already met Rob (he was a nice fellow), but I would like to meet other Munzee staff, too, so please visit Turku soon… I would also like to have more clan war months where you actually have to move and collect the points by capturing greenies and other physical munzees. I also dream about virtuals that every Premium Member would get every once in a while. They would look like the national flag of the player’s home country, so, for instance, I could deploy Finnish flag munzees at places I have been and I could see which countries other players who have visited our town are from.

Tell us about yourself!
I am a 38-year-old young man who works as a warehouse worker at a distribution center in Kaarina. I’m a hockey enthusiast and support the local ice hockey club Turun palloseura (TPS)

Other hobbies include:
My other hobbies include being a floorball referee, playing video games, and Pokemon Go, and watching movies and good TV series.

Any last words?
Thanks to those who nominated me! You are all very welcome in Turku. Munzee on!

matanome has also included some socials, so cap away!
