Reseller Garden Gnomes AND More Badges!

Our Authorized Resellers have let us know that they’ve gotten such amazing support from you, the players, with Fr057y and Virtual RUMs! With this year’s theme of Monthly Garden Gnomes, we thought it would be nice to include them in that as well! Please welcome these very special Garden Gnomes themed around each Reseller’s shop!

Reseller Garden Gnome Details

Like the other gnomes, Reseller Garden Gnomes are temporary POBs that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31. They will be available at our Authorized Resellers’ shops some time today. When you purchase a Garden Gnome from a Reseller, you will receive the base Garden Gnome with their respective gnome skin already equipped. However, you can still swap out the skins just like the other Garden Gnomes — refer to our original blog post if you need a refresher! Interested? You can get links to shop all of our resellers HERE!

Points

  • Deploy: 500
  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 300

You can find these international ambassadors traveling to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, the Gold Miner Garden Gnome will land on all stages of the Treasure Chest Evolution.

Also like the other gnomes, up to 3 NEW Gnome Hats may be scattered nearby when they are captured!

The Gnome Hats will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Gnome owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These hat scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Gnome Hats are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

Reseller Garden Gnomes of ANY type will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Reseller Garden Gnomes on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Reseller Garden Gnome visits you. Reseller Garden Gnomes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Reseller Garden Gnomes by turning on your “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.

Badges

As a reminder, Garden Gnomes have 4 associated badge lines:

  • Unique type deploy badges — you’ll need to earn each month’s skin by keeping your streak up! You’ll also receive these upon purchasing a Reseller gnome!
  • Overall deploy badges — the more gnomes you deploy, the merrier!
  • Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned gnome!
  • Overall capture badges — capture as many gnomes as you can find!

First, here are the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Aussie Explorer Garden Gnome:

The badges for the other Reseller Garden Gnomes follow the same pattern.

We’ve also extended the “Overall deploy” and “Overall capture” badge line — you can peek at the first of these new badges below:

We hope these Reseller gnomes are as beloved as their sports star brethren!

Munzee on!

Virtual Reseller Unique Munzees Have Arrived!

As we are just about a month away from the 5th birthday of Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs), we thought it was time to bring this special munzee type into the virtual fold! Like the Physical RUMs, you will only see the pin image below on the map and in the summary panel that appears when you tap on the pin:

Also like the Physical RUMs, once you tap to view the Munzee Details, you will see a pin image containing the logo/branding of the reseller it came from. The resellers will be launching this product at their own shops within the next 24-48 hours, we just want you to have all the information in advance. You can get links to shop all of our resellers HERE! Edit and Update: The virtual RUM is special because it is the first scattering virtual that is also *blastable (able to be capped by using a blast capture).

The points for Virtual RUMs are as follows:

  • Capture: 35
  • Deploy: 40
  • CapOn: 30

Similar to the Cyborg Santa, when a Virtual RUM is captured 1-3 NEW Reseller Packages will be scattered nearby!

The Reseller Packages will be visible to ALL players, not just the player who capped the Virtual RUM, and will be deployed on the Virtual RUM owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers, there are CapOn points for the owner! The Virtual RUM will count for clan wars and ZeeOps RUMs requirements. However, these package scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Reseller Packages are as follows:

  • Capture: 25
  • CapOn: 20

There is a badge for deploying each different Virtual RUM. The badges appear similarly to the Reseller Package pin icons shown above! Additional badge lines are coming soon for cumulative RUMs captures/deploys that will include all physical and virtual RUMs!

We hope you enjoy these new Virtual RUMs! Just don’t get too tipsy!

Munzee on!

*Due to the unique nature of a blastable scattering virtual, the number of scattered packages may be reduced in the future to save server/DB power and speed. Additional tweaks may be made in order to maintain the integrity of the game while preserving the value of the gamepiece.

Introducing the Freezer Burn badge!

We’re proud to announce a new challenge for our players: The Freezer Burn badge! You can earn this new badge by getting burned and frozen in the same day when capping the Fire and Ice Elemental Munzees.

The Freezer Burn badge is now live to earn, but it is not retroactive so you’ll need to prepare for some fresh burns and frostbite. We know this is no easy feat, so work with your fellow players and deploy Fire and Ice Munzees to better each others’ chances!

You can purchase an Elemental Munzee Pak in the Munzee online store, or buy individual elementals through authorized Munzee Resellers. Resellers will also have Ice Mystery Munzees on sale for 10% off.

Good luck and Munzee on!

 

Suffering from a brain freeze? Here’s a refresher on how each elemental effect works:

Fire Mystery Munzees

When you capture a Fire Mystery three Fires will then scatter to greenies within 1 mile. When you capture one of these Fires there is a chance you’ll extinguish the flame and earn 50 points. Unfortunately there’s also a chance you’ll get burned and LOSE 5 points. On the bright side you can earn badges for getting burned though!

Ice Mystery Munzees

Similar to the Fire, when you capture an Ice Mystery three Freezes will then scatter to greenies within 1 mile. Luckily you won’t lose any points for capturing a Freeze. Unfortunately there is also a chance you’ll be frozen and unable to play the game for one minute. Surviving the Ice Age might be worth it though because you can also earn some cool badges for getting frozen!

Introducing the Pirate Nomad!

When the Jewel Thief Nomad started traveling the world in search of jewels to steal in February, he paved the way for some of the less wholesome Nomads. After being followed by the Bellhop Nomad in March, it seems another has decided to set sail. Pirate Nomads have charted courses for RUMs around the world and are about to begin their journeys.

Starting tomorrow (April 4th) at 10:00 MHQ time, 10 Pirate Nomads will begin bouncing on Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs) every 12 hours or when captured. Like other Nomads, you will earn 100 points for capture of a Pirate Nomad and the owner of the host RUM will earn 20 points.

These badges will also count towards the Nomad Munzee Badge Line.

Details

Name: Pirate Nomad

How Many Are There: 10

What Does It Do: Bounces on Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs) every 12 hours or when capped.

Points:

  • Capture: 100
  • CapOn (for host owner): 20

Release Date/Time: Tuesday, April 4th at 10:00 MHQ time

We hope you enjoy this new Nomad!

Beware the Fire…Mystery Munzee

Rob: Yote… Yote… YOTE!!!

Yote: Yes, sir. Mr. Imperial Leader, SIR!

Rob: What are you doing, Yote?

Yote: Munzeeing, of course, Imperial Leader!

Rob: Good to hear, Yote! We have a surprise for you.

Yote: A surprise?! Am I finally getting the Yote Munzee?!?!?!

Rob: Not quite, but close. We’re putting The Yote on some badges for a new Munzee type.

Yote: Badges?? A new Munzee?? Tell me more SIR!

Rob: It’s all below in the blog post, Yote. Thank you for all that you do.

Yote: Thank you, Mr. Imperial Leader!! I’m so money!!! YOTE


Ah, Yote and The Imperial Leader… Well, Rob is correct. We have a new Munzee type coming out. This Munzee is a Reseller Exclusive so you will only be able to purchase them from our Authorized Resellers. They will be released for sale on June 1 at 00:01 MHQ (CST). Matt and Rob alluded to it on this past Friday’s videocast, so without any further ado, we’re proud to introduce the Fire Mystery Munzee!

FireMystery
Let’s start with the basics:

Name: Fire Mystery Munzee

Points:
Deploy: 50
Capture/CapOn: Split of 60 by multiples of 5 with a minimum of 10 (eg, 10, 15, 35, 40, etc)  — Example: capture = 25, cap on = 35.

The Twist(s):
When captured, the Fire Mystery lights three (3) fires within 1 mile on greenies. These will burn for two hours or until capped.

FireMysterySpreadCapping these fires results in two possible outcomes:

  1. There is an 80% chance that the fire will extinguish. For putting out the fire, you will receive 50 points for capture, and the owner of the host greenie will earn 10 points.
  2. The other 20% is a little more dangerous. These fires can also burn you. If you get burned, you will LOSE 5 (-5) points. (The owner of the host greenie will still earn 10 points). It’s a choice of risk versus reward. As the saying goes, if you play with fire you might get burned.

Badges:
Upon release of the Fire Mystery, we will also have three badge lines: Capping the Fire Mystery Munzees, Deploying Fire Mystery Munzees, and “Getting Burned”.

This is where Yote comes in. While we don’t want to go into too much detail of his personal life, he is a frontline firefighter in California who specializes in wildfires. He has very graciously allowed us to use his Yote likeness in the badges. We would like to thank him for that, and even more importantly, everything he does.

Capping the Fire Mystery

  1. Capture 1 Fire Mystery Munzee
  2. Capture 100 Fire Mystery Munzees
  3. Capture 250 Fire Mystery Munzees


“Getting Burned”

  1. Get burned 1 time
  2. Get burned 25 times
  3. Get burned 100 times


Deploying the Fire Mystery

  1. Deploy 1 Fire Mystery Munzee
  2. Deploy 5 Fire Mystery Munzees


We also want to take this opportunity to provide help to our friends to the north. If you haven’t heard, Canada is experiencing terrible wildfires right now. Team Munzee is making a donation to the Canadian Red Cross on behalf of the Munzee Resellers to help those affected by these fires.

If you would like to donate as well, please visit www.redcross.ca. The Government of Canada is matching all individual donations, and they could use all the help they can get.

The Munzee app and website will be updated over the next day to reflect the introduction of the Fire Mystery.

We hope you enjoy the new Fire Mystery Munzee. Try not to get burned too often! 😉

Munzee on!

FREE

Everyone always wants something for free. Well this time we are totally giving it to you! That’s right, *FREE! Flat Robs @ Easter Events!

Matt left the office Friday for an event in Canada, and other team members are out at events this weekend. Rob was sad he missed the first Easter events that started on the 17th and had other plans with family for the weekend. He wants to make it to every event in the world, but it’s just not possible to travel that much. So we put our thinking caps on and decided to send the next best thing! FLAT ROB! He will be on the map for the duration of the Easter events, so he is able to celebrate with everyone worldwide. That’s right, all the way through April 10th at 23:59.

Flat Rob’s will be sold in the store from time to time between now and April 10th but will not be there permanently. Also, you may not have heard but you get 5 FR’s included with your Munzpak subscription this month.

 

*Easter Events themselves are not free. It’s a play on the first letter of each word. Flat Rob will be “set free” on the map.

Reseller Stickers Are Now Available!

Authorized resellers are a huge part of the Munzee community. They take an idea and expand it into items that Team Munzee would have never thought of. They also have their own dedicated communities that they serve proudly and diligently. Now we’re proud to serve them and you with a new Munzee: Reseller Unique Munzee Stickers. As you can imagine they are already being affectionately called RUMS by the reseller group.

Each reseller now has a unique Munzee sticker and icon with their logo/branding on them. On the map, they will all have the same generic reseller icon (seen here). When captured, you will not only receive this icon, but alsoResellerPin the icon for the specific reseller who distributed the sticker. For example, if you capture 5 of Reseller A’s stickers and 5 of Reseller B’s stickers, you will receive 10 generic reseller icons as well as 5 Reseller A icons and 5 Reseller B icons.

Each sticker is coded as generic for any player and the points for the RUMS are as follows:

  • Capture: 15
  • Deploy: 25
  • CapOn: 10

The RUMS will have associated capture and deploy badges coming soon. This is just a first step in something big to come, so keep an eye out for further announcements.

RUMS are now available from most resellers, find the list here and Munzee on!

Munzee Players of the Week, Derik Reed and Family!

Globally, Munzee is a network of players bound together by one simple thing, a love of the game, and passion to build our community with other like-minded people.  Munzee provides us with an outlet to get outdoors, do something special with the family, see new sights, and make new friends.  We’re all different, and we each have our own amazing personal story that makes us stronger, and makes this the most amazing group of players (and people) to be a part of.  This week’s Players of the Week are no exception to this. The Reed Family (Derik, Kathryn, David and Julia),  are near and dear to our hearts.  Their love of the game and love of their son David resonate throughout the Munzee community. Today, we want to make them “shine” worldwide with all of you!  Read below and get to know this week’s courageous Players of the Week!

The Reeds

1.  Who are you?  Let us know your “names” and introduce your Munzee family!

We are derikkathryn, Derik Reed, lilgeodave, and lilgeolia. My kids have their own accounts, at their request when we started playing together.

2.  Where in the world do you live? We live in East Helena, MT, USA

3.  How long have you played Munzee?    (Derik) I began playing in January of 2013, 15 months ago.

4.  How did you find Munzee?  Did someone in your family “take” to Munzee first, or was it a passion shared amongst you all?

I discovered Munzee while overhearing it being discussed at an event of the other Geolocation-Game-That-Must-Not-Be-Named. I think they were actually making fun of it; I downloaded the app, and discovered that there were no more than a dozen in the area I was covering (including my home and Spokane, WA). It took me over a month to get to 100 points, as I had not discovered “armchair munzees” yet.  My son David had been diagnosed with ALL, T-Cell Leukemia in October of 2012, and was living with my wife at the Ronald McDonald House in Spokane; munzee provided me with a needed distraction and activity (mostly deploying) while driving back and forth between here and there.  My kids both have active accounts, and have played in clan battles with me, but mostly like to go on walks, and sometimes are ready to be done way before me!

Derik and Julia

5.  What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

I enjoy the opportunity to get outside and exercise, the chance to meet new people with similar interests, including planning local events, coordinating strategic Munzee attacks so that our local clans can compete with the “Big Boys in Europe” and on the Coasts during clan battles.

6.  How has Munzee impacted your relationship with your family, especially your children?

My family frequently munzees together, but I have way more drive than the kids.  Our connections with others, especially while in Spokane, have been greatly augmented by Munzee and the other “Geolocation-Game-That-Must-Not-Be-Named”; also, my connections in that other game have triggered an interest in Munzee in Spokane, where the map has grown from just a few to over 5000 deploys in the last year.  Also, another Munzer visiting Spokane capped some Munzees we deployed while walking to Riverfront Park from the Ronald McDonald House on Easter of 2013; she was so moved by our deploys that she made contact with my wife (at R.M.H.), and provided a significant amount of financial, emotional, and spiritual support while we were in Spokane! The people I play with have become close, personal friends, and their prayers and encouragement have been essential to our navigation of the last year.  More locally, at a recent event in Helena, another player’s son, who is a survivor of  childhood leukemia, was able to meet with my son.  We are forging lifelong connections through this game!

7.  What is on your wish list?

Most of my wishes have come to pass in the last year–i-nigma on the iPhone, locally planned events, better functionality for conversion and other functions within the app; but the greatest desire I have right now would be for some (or all!) of MHQ to come to one or more events in Montana and Spokane this summer!  It would be an acknowledgement that we in the hinterlands are having an impact on the game!

8.  Tell us more about your son’s treatment, and how the last 18 months have been for your family:

David was diagnosed with cancer on October 8, 2012, two days before his seventh birthday. He was in critical condition, and within hours of his diagnosis, he was life-flighted to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane, Washington. During the first eight months (the most intense phases) of his three and a quarter years of treatment, he and his mother were required to live in Spokane. The Ronald McDonald House of Spokane became their home away from home. Without the Ronald McDonald House and all of the support it offered our family, those eight months away from home, friends, and family would have been even more difficult. The House provided us a safe place to live, play, and interact with other families with children with significant health issues.

We moved home Memorial Day weekend of 2012, but we visit the Ronald McDonald House every time we’re in Spokane to drop off donated pop tabs and to visit; we will always be grateful to the staff and supporters of the House.

Kathryn, David and Derik

David’s treatment consists of five phases, four of which were completed while we lived in Spokane. The first four phases involved IV chemotherapy, intrathecal chemotherapy, oral chemotherapy and steroids, as well as full cranial radiation. The last phase of treatment requires daily oral chemotherapy, a trip to Spokane every four weeks for IV chemotherapy, and a trip to Spokane every twelve weeks for a lumbar puncture and spinal chemotherapy; this cycle is repeated until the end of treatment. David will complete his final chemotherapy and ring the bell as a childhood cancer survivor on January 18, 2016.

Team Munzee is proud to have the Reed Family as this week’s Players of the Week.  The passion and strength they bring to their everyday lives and the game is an inspiration to us, and hopefully, an inspiration to you!  We’d like it if the Munzee community could rally together and capture this very special Social we’ve deployed for lilgeodave:

tghisone

A note from our President:  The Reed family and their story have inspired Team Munzee.  Coming very soon we will celebrate and honor their Munzee connection with the Ronald McDonald House of Spokane.  Prepare for special charity gamepieces, icons, and badges.  More information coming very soon!

Thanks so much for taking a moment to read this important Player of the Week Interview, and capturing this Social.  Keep your eyes on the blog, and on our Social Outlets for the big announcement from Team Munzee.  You can help make a difference in this world! “Expect the Unexpected” this 2014!
