Elvis’s Glasses Have Left the Building!

It’s a well-known fact in the Munzee community that we are fans of the The King. Dylan has even graced an event in his likeness! Following the success of last week’s special Spectacular Spectacles, our second 20/20 Vision Munzee will add a little rock-and-roll to your wardrobe with its conveniently attached sideburns! These beauties were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Time to fry up some peanut butter and banana sandwiches!

Only one pair of The King’s Sunglasses will be deployed, and it will bounce to all colors of virtual munzees every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing The King’s Sunglasses will add this rockin’ T-See-B badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates.

Elvis was a prolific artist, releasing many timeless classics such as “Burning Love,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” and “Hound Dog”! His talent also translated well to both the big and small screens, racking up quite a few film and TV credits. If you’ve experienced every piece of media about Elvis, but still want more, you may be excited to hear a new biopic is scheduled for release next year!

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these trendy lenses!

Show us how you Munzee! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and mention us on Facebook (@Munzee) or Instagram (@munzeeapp). Good luck, and Munzee on!

Foresight is 20/20 with these New Specials!

This Throwback Thursday harkens back to the joys of yesteryear with an equally special announcement. Following the success of last year’s Global Grub specials, we are excited to announce that our first of two dozen 20/20 Vision specials for the year will be launching this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. If you use reading glasses, make sure you have them equipped so you can learn all about these special accessories!

The 20/20 Vision specials are very rare munzees that will bounce around the world for the remainder of the year. That means you’ll be spending the next twelve months capturing pins featuring 24 different pairs of glasses in order to earn their corresponding badges. We hope spotting these rare munzees will help to train and improve your vision!

Our first 20/20 Vision special to launch is the Spectacular Spectacles Munzee! This physical munzee, features a pair of plain black frames. These may seem a little basic, but don’t worry there’s all sorts of eye-catching eyewear in store! Only one will be deployed, and it will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 


Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Players will earn a badge for each different 20/20 Vision Munzee they capture starting with the Perfect Vision badge for capturing the Spectacular Spectacles pin! Down the line, we’ll also be putting out an overall capture line, so stay tuned for more.

Each 20/20 Vision Munzee will go live at 15:00 MHQ on their assigned day. We’re not announcing when each launch will be, but we expect to release a couple specials each month.

All 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. Until then, you’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own. Although there is only one Spectacular Spectacles 20/20 Vision Special, future releases may include more. You’ll just have to wait and see! Some of these specials will be physical, while others will be virtual. Keep in mind that virtuals will not be blastable.

If this latest update has you excited, you’re in luck. We will be launching our second 20/20 Vision special — this one inspired by an iconic celebrity — next week, so stay tuned! 

Don’t forget, we want to see you playing! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and tag us on Facebook or Instagram. Good luck, and Munzee on!

Let Vietnam’s Global Grub Warm You Up!

The weather outside is frightful, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to feast! As we head into our final month for our Global Grub releases, we’re thrilled to announce the addition of Vietnam Global Grub specials to the map starting today at 15:00 MHQ time!

A total of 12 Vietnam Global Grub specials will be deployed. They will join other virtual Global Grub specials such as USA, Ukraine, FranceAustralia, and more! They will bounce to regular virtuals and colored virtuals every 12 hours or when captured.

Points

  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Every time a Global Grub special is captured, you will earn a badge featuring a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country. Capturing the Vietnam Global Grub will earn you the following special badge:

 

Pho is Vietnam’s answer to other countries’ popular noodle soups, such as the Japanese Ramen or Korean Ramyun. However, you’ll find they are vastly different — looking at the ingredients alone, you can see some clear differences. Pho noodles are made from rice flour, which gives them a slightly translucent white color. In addition, Pho puts the emphasis on fresh herbs and vegetables, which offer a lighter alternative for noodle soup fans!

The Global Grub specials will bounce around the globe for the remainder of the year before leaving the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ time. You will have until then to try your luck capturing these very rare specials. Don’t forget that our overall Global Grub capture line allows you more opportunities than ever to earn Global Grub badges!

We hope you have all enjoyed our Global Grub specials throughout the year! Let’s end 2019 in the tastiest way possible!

Munzee on!

December Resolutions Ask You to Dig Deep!

We’ve done it! We’ve reached the final month of 2019. Looking back at all the previous months, how has your journey of self-improvement gone thus far? This month we’d like to expand on the previous month’s theme of volunteer work by opening it up to all forms of giving.

Giving from the heart can cost nothing!

Since January, we’ve been releasing monthly Capture Streak badges centered around a year of personal improvement. Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution in our quest for a year of positive growth and change. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Besides volunteering, let’s consider the other ways in which we can give more!

The Good of Giving More

Everybody has limited resources. During the holiday season, this is probably felt even more so, as you struggle to cross off names on your own Nice list. Volunteer work is a great way to give more as it often only costs you time — but how else can we give more without further breaking the bank? Maybe you’d still prefer to give to strangers — in that case, have a tidying up session and donate your gently used items that no longer spark joy! The benefits will be twofold — you get a cleaner home, and someone else will get something they want and/or need!

If you need to ease your way into it, you can start by giving in your very own home! Is there anything around the house that needs to be repaired? Put on your ZeeQRew hardhat and fix it! Is there a Global Grub someone in your family has always wanted to try? Buy the ingredients on your next grocery trip and get cooking! Has it been way too long since your last Family Board Game Night? Break out the MH-Qlue, Monopoly, or your own preferred tabletop game and see if your strategies have improved since last time… or not!

Perhaps the most important way to give more, in today’s world of mental health and anxiety issues, is to lavish someone with words of love. Tell your loved ones that you love them. Spread the love to more distant family members and friends by calling, texting, e-mailing, or even sending snail mail to let them know how much you care. If you are already in the habit of doing those things, try complimenting a stranger. Many of us have been taught that “actions speak louder than words” and prefer to use actions (such as those listed in the previous paragraph) to show how much we care — but sometimes, actions are too subtle. Sometimes, we need to hear with our own ears that we are loved.

And that’s a wrap! We hope you enjoyed this year of Resolutions! Let us know which one you took to heart the most!

Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

Philippines Global Grub

The year is slowly starting to wind down, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to feast! With one and a half months left for our Global Grub releases, we’re thrilled to announce the addition of Philippines Global Grub specials to the map starting today at 15:00 MHQ time!

A total of 11 Philippines Global Grub specials will be deployed. They will bounce to greenies every 12 hours or when captured. They are attracted to magnets on greenies.

Points

  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Every time a Global Grub special is captured, you will earn a badge featuring a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country. Capturing the Philippines Global Grub will earn you the following special badge:

Lumpia is a spring roll originating from China and commonly found in Indonesia and the Philippines. It is a savory snack made of thin crepe pastry skin called “lumpia wrapper” enveloping a mixture of savory fillings, and consists of chopped vegetables or also minced meat.

The Global Grub specials will bounce around the globe for the remainder of the year before leaving the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ time. You will have until then to try your luck capturing these very rare specials. Don’t forget that our overall Global Grub capture line allows you more opportunities than ever to earn Global Grub badges!

Stay tuned for more Global Grub releases in the future!

Munzee Celebrates Origami Day with All New Specials!

Have you noticed the Flat Friends have been playing with arts and crafts?!

While we’ve been mentioning the holiday season for a little while now, one special day that you might not have anticipated us celebrating happens to be the reason for our next specials! In honor of November 11th being Origami Day, we have a new set of bouncing specials that have started hitting the map!

You may have noticed the Flats’ arts and crafts project bouncing around the map already, but there are four types of the virtual MOBs. The Origami specials will be on the map from now until November 18th at 23:59 MHQ time to celebrate World Origami Day.

Origami Day celebrates the wonder of paper folding, both an exciting and restorative form of art. One of our 4 icons features an origami crane, an image symbolic of hope and healing through hardship. Folding 1,000 origami cranes is traditionally believed to grant one wish. Today these beliefs filter into charities revolving around this recognized symbol of hope. We’re launching these specials in accordance with this message, as well as to celebrate the beauty and fun of paper folding!

Origami Details

There will be 1,111 Origami specials (approximately 278 of each type) bouncing around the map. These specials will feature 4 virtual MOBs that will land on Virtuals and specific Flat Friends Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. If you checked out the November Flat Friends schedule, you might have noticed that Flat Friends will be active throughout the entire duration of these specials.

The 4 specials include:

  • Origami Crane, lands on Flat Robs and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Lily, lands on Flat Lous and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Boat, lands on Flat Matts and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Butterfly, lands on Flat Hammocks and all colors of virtuals (277 of these specials)

The points* distribution for these specials will be the same for all 4:

  • Capture: 111 points
  • CapOn (Host): 111 points

You can access these specials by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The Origami specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtuals.

Badges

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Origami specials. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Wishful Wrappings– Capture at least one of any type of Origami Special

We hope you’re ready to celebrate the wonders of origami with us!

Munzee on!

 

*During the initial testing of these new types some players may have seen double points on these captures, but this issue has been resolved. All Origami special captures will be worth 111 points.

November Resolutions Focus on Giving Back

We’re one day away from Halloween, which means we’re only two days away from the start of November! The holiday season is rapidly arriving, but while we anticipate festivities, gifts, and gatherings, our November Resolution is centered around giving back through volunteer work.

Time helping others is time well spent

Since January, we’ve been releasing monthly Capture Streak badges centered around a year of personal improvement. Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution in our quest for a year of positive growth and change. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Now let’s explore the meaning of this month’s badge in the quest to help others in need.

Values of Volunteer Work

The excellent news is volunteer work is a two-way street. Not only does volunteer work enhance the lives of the recipients, but it has profoundly positive effects on the volunteer as well. Volunteer work brings about personal growth, allowing people to expand their horizons, sharpen their skill sets, and have the opportunity to develop new strengths. While volunteer work can certainly make you feel better about yourself, it can also add to your resume and assist you with your career goals.

Volunteer work is important to personal growth, because it provides the opportunity to connect with people. The experience of volunteering is very rewarding, allowing the volunteer to make a positive change in the lives of others. The act of service is often propelled by directly witnessing how your good deeds affect the lives of those you assist. Overall, regular volunteer work is believed to increase self-esteem, widen your perspective, and expand your network in an environment that can often be fun.

When searching for the right place to volunteer, there are a number of factors you can keep in mind. While there are plenty of places that need extra hands, you can narrow down your options based on your skill set. Consider your true purpose in life and know what you have to offer in order to select a volunteer place that can best utilize your strengths. Choose what kind of a difference you wish to make in the world, and invest your valuable time in working for a cause that supports your goal. Along the way, you’ll be able to discover many wonderful things about yourself as you give back to those around you!

Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

Try a francesinha!
