2017 In Review and Looking Forward to 2018

2017 was a great year. We tried to encompass our theme of “Everyone. Everywhere.” into all that we did. There were learning experiences along the way, but the community consistently pushed us to provide the best game and experiences we could. For that, we thank you tremendously. Below, we have some “year-in-review” stats and messages from the team followed by more information about our 2018 theme.


Munzee Events from Louise

Wow, what a year 2017 has been for Munzee Events. To everyone everywhere, thank you all for keeping me so busy!

We’ve had some fantastic events this year from the Tea Parties to our 6th Birthday celebrations, the MunzFit Events to the Christmas Parties that are just wrapping up now. 525 events to be precise, most hosted by you, our wonderful players, and some hosted by us at MHQ. We were delighted to welcome so many of you to our new office in McKinney back in September and had our first events with the whole MHQ  team.

We have greatly enjoyed coming to your events all over the world too, thank you for inviting us and being such wonderful hosts. Personally, my absolute highlight was celebrating my birthday with over 100 Munzee players at the Australia Day events back in January!

We’ve introduced new exciting merchandise exclusive to events and created Emerald Gardens all over the world. We also hit new record attendance levels with the events in Germany this summer, absolutely brilliant stuff!

I look forward to meeting more of you virtually as I work with you to create your Munzee Events and can’t wait to meet even more of you out and about at your amazing events.

Thank you for your support, Munzee On!

There are quite a few things that could be said about 2017. We went through a lot of changes in efforts to do what we thought was best for the game and company. The community was always at the forefront when we made decisions, and “Everyone. Everywhere.” wasn’t just a theme but a way of thinking.  Check out some of the stats from this year:

As we mentioned in the podcast, our theme for 2018 is “The Time is Now.” Over the years, there has been projects and ideas that we haven’t had the time or resources to implement. With the staff and resources we have after merging with Freeze Tag, we can finally put these ideas into action. These range from gameplay changes to a new app and work on them will begin immediately. While you may not see them immediately, be sure that we are working to make the game and app better than ever.

Once again, thank you for everything you have done to help grow the game and support other member’s of the community.

Happy New Year, and Munzee on!

Introducing University Places Munzees!

As August comes to an end, many schools around the world start a new school year. MHQ wants to celebrate that by introducing our next type of Places Munzee: Universities!

University Places Munzees, like the previous Places Munzees we released last month, are deployed on player accounts and have the same point and proximity structure. You can see all of the Places Munzees on the Places Map, and if you need a refresher on how to deploy Places Munzees, you can check out our previous blog post.

Details

Points

  • Deploy: 25
  • Capture: 10
  • CapOn: 5

Proximity: 1 mile from other Places Munzees

Capture Radius: 1000ft

Multi-Capture: These can be captured 1 time per MHQ day

Badges: These will count toward the Places capture badges.

Criteria

Like the other Places Munzees, there are certain criteria that we look for when approving University Places Munzees:

  • Most Importantly: University Places Munzees must be deployed at a University/College. Please no college annex buildings at grade schools (common in parts of the US).
  • Only 1 University Places Munzee will be allowed per campus. When deploying, please try and position the munzee at the main entrance on the university/college campus.
  • The university/college must be accessible to all, not a private/closed campus.
  • No research institutions unless they are part of a university/college system.

Our ZenDesk will be updated to reflect this information.

University Places Munzees will be available at 15:00 MHQ time TOMORROW (August 22nd, 15:00 CST) for $10 USD. All current Places Munzees will be removed from the store until then as well in order to add this new type. You will be able to find all Places Munzees for sale here August 22nd, 15:00 CST.

Munzee On!

Birthday Coinz and more!

We’re proud to announce the release of a limited number of 6th Birthday Comic Book Special coinz! These golden brass coins look awesome and are a great keepsake from a SUPER month. Those in attendance of our MHQ Birthday Bash will be the first to to have the chance to buy them, so be sure to RSVP.

6th Birthday Comic Book Coin

Along with the Birthday coinz we are also releasing a Recycle coin and a ZeeOps coin. Remember you can use coinz to track specific munzee captures which is perfect when hunting recycles or completing ZeeOps missions. The Recycle coin features the Munzee Recycle icon and the ZeeOps coin features the ZeeOps logo inlaid upon a super unique white metal. Both are great additions to any coin collection!

All three coinz will be available on Friday at MHQ Birthday Bash, but will then be for sale to the public Monday at 3 PM CST. Everyone should be on the lookout for even more items on sale Monday too!

We hope to see a bunch of our players at the event tomorrow, but either way we hope you all enjoy these awesome keepsakes!

Munzee on!

Introducing Munzee Magnets!

Can you feel the attraction? We’re proud to announce a new gameplay feature called Magnets!

These brand new items are temporary credits you can use to attract Seasonal Specials and Mythological Munzees for a set amount of time. It’s easy, you just Magnetize a greenie of your choosing and that munzee will then attract up to 3 specials or myths for up to one hour! The magnet expires at the end of the hour or after the 3rd capture.

Think of it like a temporary shamrock or elemental that also attracts seasonal specials like the Birthday Comic Book specials. So now if you live in a less populated Munzee area you can increase your chances of capping specials and myths!

Magnetizing a munzee from the app is easy!

  1. Choose the Greenie you want to magnetize.
  2. Go to the Munzee Details page.
  3. Click on the three dots icon in the upper righthand corner.
  4. Click “Magnetize” and confirm.
  5. Wait for the fun to begin!

You can also Magnetize a munzee from the web! 

  1. Go to munzee.com/map
  2. Click on the munzee you want to Magnetize and go to the Munzee’s page
  3. Scroll down and on the lower righthand side is a button that say “Magnetize”
  4. Click confirm and go find that Munzee!

Click the image to enlarge it.

A few things to note:

  • There is a limit of 10 magnets per player account purchased per 14 days.
  • When a Magnetized munzee brings a special or a myth anyone can cap it, so be quick or be nice and share with friends!
  • You’ll be able to Magnetize munzees you have already capped as well as your own munzees since you can cap specials on those.
  • You can see how many Magnets you have on the Credits page of the app or web.
  • Magnets will go on sale in August. Premium Members can expect some magnetic attraction next month too.

Magnet credits are currently exclusive to Physical MunzPak subscribers until they go on sale next month. You’ll receive ten Munzee magnets in your July Physical MunzPak subscription so if you haven’t signed up do it NOW!

Even though the Magnets are currently exclusive to MunzPak subscribers, it’s our birthday so we wanted to share the love a bit. Event hosts who are throwing Munzee Birthday party packages will also have the opportunity to buy Magnets to be used at their events. This will help bring some fun for your Event guests! You need to email Louise if you are interested in adding these to your event but remember she is cycling this weekend so don’t expect an immediate response.

***Event Details Edit*** Magnets may be purchased by event hosts. They are added to the event account only and event pricing is $10 for 10 magnets (maximum of 10 per event account).

We’re excited to see how you all use Magnets to your advantage! Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Spectacular 6th Birthday Specials!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been six years since Munzee was launched. It’s surpassed anything the co-founders could have imagined as a game, company, and community. As you probably have noticed, we tend to celebrate, especially our birthday. So take a peek at what we have going on for our Spectacular 6th Birthday!

Specials

Like most 6 year olds, we love comics and superheroes so be prepared to cap special comic books! Starting tomorrow (July 1st) at 00:01 MHQ time, 2011 Spectacular 6th Birthday Special icons will be on the map. These icons will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when captured.

When captured, these will scatter three onomatopoeia icons within one mile for two hours or until capped.

Each of these are worth 17 Capture points and 11 CapOn points for the host owner. You CAN capture these on your own greenies, and all four specials will count towards the new Specials Badges line.

The scattered icons will also have another surprise. Each of the three icons will award a different badge. Your goal is to collect all three.

When you collect all three of the badges, you will also earn the completed comic book page.

Earned by capturing all three of the scattered icons.

These icons will be on the map until July 31st at 23:59 MHQ time.

Flat Robs and Flat Matts

As we noted in our latest podcast, Flat Robs and Flat Matts will spend quite a bit of time on the map during the month of July:

Flat Robs:

  • 1st-16th
  • 21st-23rd
  • 28th-31st

Flat Matts:

  • 1st-10th
  • 14th-15th
  • 21st-26th
  • 28th-31st

They will also be available in the Munzee Online Store during the month starting tomorrow.

Birthday Sale

During Birthday Month, we will also be having a variety of sales. Starting tomorrow (July 1st) at 00:01 MHQ time, the following items will be on sale:

Throughout the month, other items will be on sale, so keep an eye out for more information on those!

Prizes and Giveaways

As always, keep an eye on our social media pages for prizes, giveaways, and contests.

We hope you enjoy Birthday Month. We know we will!

Munzee on!
