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.

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!

Announcement: Munzee donates USD $5,000 to Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism!

The amazing efforts of our active Munzee community lead to over 8,055 hearts captured in the month of April! Player captures raised a total of USD $4,027.50 in donations towards an Autism charity. Team Munzee has decided one organization deserves the incredible efforts of our players.

Flutie Foundation_best jpeg logo

Autism is a neurological disorder that impacts the normal development of the brain (oftentimes in areas of social interaction and communication skills). Autism occurs in as many as one in 150 births, and awareness towards this struggle is something passionately felt by Team Munzee.

The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism was established in 1998 by NFL quarterback Doug Flutie and his wife, Laurie, in honor of their son Doug, Jr. who was diagnosed with autism at age three.

Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation is dedicated to increasing the awareness of autism and improving the lives of families facing the unique challenges of facing autism everyday. Our commitment is to support these families by helping them find the resources they need and by funding advocacy programs as well as educational, therapeutic and recreational opportunities. To learn more about Flutie Foundation, check out the following link: http://www.flutiefoundation.org/

Like Team Munzee, Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation is a small group of passionate people working hard every day to turn their vision into a reality. Yesterday, TJ (VP of Sales/Marketing) reached out to the devoted five-person team and offered our total donation of USD $5,000.00 to their organization! We’re glad we could make a difference by donating to a dedicated organization that will utilize over 90% of our donation towards Autism Awareness (and helping families of children with autism ). Their primary objective is to provide families with a place to turn when they are in need of support and autism resources.

Team Munzee wants to give a big “THANKS” to our player community, YOU are what makes Munzee great. You inspire us to make a difference every day, and today we were able to do just that!

PS: Be sure to give them a little “Like” on Facebook too! https://www.facebook.com/flutiefoundation

Munzee Player of the Week: JS Seegars (Sseegars)

This week’s player of the week is a quiet sort of player.  The player that spends his time enjoying the best of Munzee: getting outdoors, spending time with the family, and riding magical invisible pink unicorns.  A friendly face on Social Media, and always eager to meet with any player headed towards his neck of the woods, this week’s Player of the Week is JS Seegars (Sseegars)!

Screenshot_2014-04-20-18-08-38-1

Who are you? sseegars

Where in the world do you live? Kershaw, USA

How long have you played Munzee? 1,002 days

How did you find Munzee? Munzee came up in conversation with a fellow ‘cacher who was beta testing the app for iPhone. I was very hesitant to get into Munzee at first. I was a hardcore cacher and I just didn’t think Munzee would catch on. But I like firsts. I like being first in things and so I placed the first Munzee in South Carolina! I deployed it three years ago and my wife was FTC one year ago. Only two captures on it now, LOL! (Editor’s Note: Everyone head to South Carolina: http://www.munzee.com/map/dnnswddyp/13!)

What do you enjoy most about Munzee? I’m not a die-hard player, but my wife is, and I’m so supportive of her and Munzee! She liked caching but wasn’t as into it as I was. This has given us both something to do together! We discuss Munzee several times a day. Add to that the social interaction online with the various pages and groups and I am happy to be a part of the Munzee family. I am a stay at home Dad and being online is sometimes my only adult interaction during the day.

Another aspect that I really enjoy and I want to be clear about upfront is Rob’s involvement in the game. He’s always around. He’s not just the president, he’s also a player. I am not badmouthing caching but I really never saw that “in other games” and I’ve actually met the folks in charge for those games/hobbies! Rob is more involved and approachable and that means something to me!

I enjoy Munzee because I can place most anywhere. I don’t have a reviewer looking over my shoulder. That’s something that finally drove me away from caching. I often go out for a wander on weekends (Saturdays are my day off) with my camera and find some interesting thing or place that I can bring another player to. It’s not the points for me. It’s the discovery of new things, or old things. I do love old houses.

What is on your wish list?  Franklin, TN in the foreseeable future! I would love to go back to Europe especially now with Munzee.

I want to see historical icons. I have part of that with quiz munzees and have started placing those with that in mind. I would love to see a set of Munzees that give an increasing point range as you go along a historical trail of Munzees to a payoff of points at the end. I think that would be useful in getting both the curious and the ones out for points onto a trail like that. I always like to learn new things about an area when I’m out wandering. That’s how I used to cache.

Tell us about yourself!

My handle is something that my parents came up with, lol. First initial and last name.  I am awful about picking a handle and changing it. So here I just went with a handle I’ve had for years.

I am forty-five, married, with two kids. Mags is maseegars, our children play with us, and we all use the same handles for our Munzee player names. I had to keep it simple and going the same way I did with their handles seemed to be the best way.

I usually Munzee with the wife. I have been known to Munzee with WallynSC when I can get his decrepit old body out of the house!

I love photography and history, science fiction and fantasy, and I watch WAY too much TV. I am also a heavy reader. I have a huge interest in mythology and books on the occult, ghost stories and just the general weird stuff that’s out there. There is a lot of strangeness in the world. I want to see it all.

2014-04-29 15.20.05

One of the thing I really enjoy in the Facebook groups is Unicornification Nation, It’s nice to be a part of that. I enjoy the back and forth when it really gets rolling.

I wanted to mention this, the whole Unicorn thing. I’m part Scottish. It’s heritage not hate. LOL, Check out that beautiful national animal (and my Social):

unnamed (1)

I wouldn’t want to go too far on this, but it’s important.  Was that way too far? 😉

If you know a player that should be nominated for Munzee Player of the Week, shoot us a message at iLoveYou@Munzee.com and let us know just why this person is outstanding in the global Munzee community!

-Please note, this is a super active campaign.  We may not be able to get back to everyone, but you’re helping to grow the list of amazing people in the Munzee community!
