Nothing Will Escape Your Notice with These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

Now that it’s officially Fall around MHQ, are you getting enough fresh air? While the temperatures are probably more comfortable, there are less days off to enjoy. We hope you get to spend some time outside in your backyard or a nearby park to get your dose of Vitamin D!

If you have the good fortune to live near a forest, take a deep breath and get some extra oxygen for the rest of us! It would also be great to spot some real-world Camp Critters in the wild, which these lemony lenses are made for! They were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Maybe a road trip to some secluded woods is in order — after you get your car battery replaced, that is!

Only nine pairs of Hunting Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to all colors of virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

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

Capturing the Hunting Glasses will add this natural Hunter’s Hindsight badge to your collection! It will also contribute progress towards the overall capture line of badges — the post is HERE if you missed it!

Similar to July’s Summer Shades, these Hunting Glasses have a distinct lens color that isn’t just for show. According to biggamelogic.com, yellow lenses “block haze and blue light since they are on the opposite end of the color spectrum,” increasing contrast and making it easier to spot other creatures in your surroundings. Definitely useful if you want to spot other humans as well, to ensure that you are socially distanced! If you read on, you’ll notice that the Summer Shades would also make great Hunting Glasses depending on your prey — it makes sense, since we learned that the polarized lenses are the eyewear of choice for fishermen!

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!

These 20/20 Vision Munzees Are a Reminder of Our Hope for a Kinder World

Happy International Day of Peace!

World peace may seem like a cliché thing to wish for — it is on the lips of practically every beauty pageant contestant and equally at home on the page of many a luminary’s interview. But in today’s world, a world in which we have not only a global pandemic to contend with, but violent conflicts, we can’t deny that the world would be a much better place if we had it. To that end, we wanted to highlight this important day with these statement shades, which were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. What are some simple steps we can take towards world peace?

Only nine Peace Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

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

Capturing the Peace Glasses will add this groovy Peaceful Peepers badge to your collection! Also, as of July we’ve released the details on the overall capture line — the post is HERE if you missed it!

Today we celebrate the International Day of Peace, which was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. This year’s theme is “Shaping Peace Together.” To survive this time of hardship, we should work together instead of letting fear divide us. In the UN’s words:

Celebrate the day by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the pandemic. Stand together with the UN against attempts to use the virus to promote discrimination or hatred. Join us so that we can shape peace together.

We know our player community is full of people who follow the above guidelines as written by the UN every day, not just on the International Day of Peace, but we hope the officiality of the day only strengthens your resolve!

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 bouncing bifocals!

You’ll Be Seeing Green With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

Need to escape the house to shake off a bad case of cabin fever? While our options for travel are limited at the moment, we can at least take a mental vacation by reading a good book! Why not revisit some of your favorite children’s books, like The Wizard of Oz? You may find that they’re still just as magical, even if you’re all grown up, and that your more mature self will give a fresh take on a book you thought you already knew. These essential eyeglasses were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. If you don’t enjoy wearing glasses non-stop, you may want to keep your visit to the city short!

Only eight pairs of Emerald City Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to all colors of virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

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

Capturing the Emerald City Glasses will add this monochrome Over The Rainbow badge to your collection! It will also contribute progress towards the overall capture line of badges — the post is HERE if you missed it!

Even though Emerald City owes a lot to these special glasses, we’re sure it was an equally wonderful sight without them. The glasses didn’t fake the shine, which came from countless gems used to decorate the city, despite not all of them being emeralds. Author L. Frank Baum reportedly based Emerald City on the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893, a fair held in Chicago to celebrate Christopher Columbus’s arrival. The beautiful buildings, made dazzling with lights, reflective glass, and other trimmings, were also referred to as the “White City.” Would you want to visit Emerald City? What are some other places from books that you’d like to visit?

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!

National Waffle Day Specials Will Have You Bolting for Breakfast!

For those of us lucky enough to be working from home, one benefit is having more time in the morning to scrounge up a good breakfast! Here at MHQ that usually means anything with bacon and eggs, but we also need carbs to balance out that protein! What does a good breakfast look like to you?

To celebrate National Waffle Day, Wandering Waffle specials are now live on the map for everyone and will remain available until September 14 at 23:59 MHQ. You can use the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters to more easily view them on the map. Check out the menu below!

Wandering Waffles

There will be a total of 480 Wandering Waffle Specials available for capture — that breaks down to 240 of each. These are attracted to either Physical or Virtual Magnets depending on their type. These are not blastable.

Landing Pads:

  • Belgian Waffle:
    • Greenies
    • “Breakfast” Evolutions:
      • Milk
        • Calf
        • Cow
        • Milk
      • Bacon
        • Piglet
        • Pig

Badges

There are two lines of badges related to Wandering Waffle specials.

The first line is based on overall Wandering Waffle captures. These badges will show you the tools to make the perfect waffles and some popular dishes with waffles as the main ingredient! The first badge in this line is called Waffle Iron and is earned by capping four Waffles of any type!

The second line of badges is based on each of the two Wandering Waffle specials. Make sure to cap at least one of each special so you can start your day off right!

You can sneak a peek at the first of each badge line below:

Try not to get any syrup on your device as you chase these sweet specials!

Lovesick? It’s Time For Another Segment of Ask Aphrodite!

In times like these, we all need a friend who’s looking out for us. And if that friend happens to be an expert in matters of the heart, all the better! Tune in to 461.5 to hear the soothing, velvety voice of our newest Modern Myth, broadcasting straight from WBHQ-FM!

Aphrodite will be available for sale starting at 12:00 MHQ time today until 12:00 MHQ time on Sept 1!

Aphrodite Details

The Aphrodite Modern Myth will be available for purchase HERE! She will be spotted bouncing around to Greenies, Air Mysteries, Pink Colored Virtuals*, Pink Diamonds, Treehouses, and Skylands every 12 hours or when capped.

Each Aphrodite is numbered and will be owned by a Munzee player. You can pick this Myth up for $20! The sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership. Only ONE (1) Aphrodite is allowed per account.

Points

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 100

In keeping with the Modern Myth line, when she is captured 3 new munzees will also be scattered nearby — these will either be Glasses or Shell-Phones!

These will scatter like feathers so there are no CapOn points but they are worth 50 points for capture!

Aphrodite is able to be upgraded via a Bouncer Upgrade Credit, which gives the ability to be “nudged” or be renamed. The upgrade credit will give you the ability to “nudge” your Aphrodite to a new munzee up to three times a day, following the MHQ 24-hour day, after it has been on its host munzee for at least three hours. This nudging ability is only available for the owner via the munzee’s webpage and is not available in the app.

Your munzee will still retain its unique number, but feel free to get creative when it comes to renaming your Aphrodite! Just be sure to follow the Player Code of Conduct, and remember Munzee maintains a family-friendly environment.

If you’re hoping to cap one of these brand new Modern Myths, then you’re in luck! Aphrodite will be attracted to Munzee Magnets and Virtual Munzee Magnets. You can access Aphrodite by turning on your “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Mythological” filters.

Badges

Deploying Aphrodite will earn you the following badge:

All captures will count toward the Myth Collectors badge line. There is also a line of hidden Capture badges that you can earn for Aphrodite captures, with 3 badges currently available, but more to come! The first in this line will appear as follows:

Are you interested in owning Aphrodite on a personal tag? You can pick one up here!

We hope you’re ready to welcome this new Myth incarnation to the family! Be on the lookout for more Modern Myths to make their way to Earth soon!

Munzee on!

*Pink Colored Virtuals include:

  • Virtual Orchid
  • Virtual Melon
  • Virtual Pink
  • Virtual Carnation Pink
  • Virtual Mauvelous
  • Virtual Salmon
  • Virtual Tickle Me Pink
  • Virtual Magenta
  • Virtual Wild Strawberry

Premium Prizes For Captivating Campers!

Starting with our Player of the Month requirements announced a few weeks ago, we wanted to make this month all about reaching out to and supporting all the new players that have discovered Munzee during these tough times.

Last week we posted about the new tutorials we’ve added to the Help & Info section of the app, which is just one of many steps we are taking to make the app more friendly to new players. Another step we’ve taken is testing out week-long Premium trials for new players when they sign up. So far, the results have been good, so it looks like the Premium trials are here to stay!

Since we’ve committed to giving all new players a week-long Premium trial, we wanted to extend the offer to others as well! Whether you’re a new player who joined before the trials started, or a veteran player who hasn’t chosen to take the next step, this is your chance to get a taste of the Premium life.

To players who were active during the period of July 1 to August 10:

  • If you are NOT currently a Premium Member, you will receive a week-long Premium trial starting today!*
  • If you are already a Premium Member (but not currently on a week-long trial), you will receive a Golden Carrot and a Howdy Greeting Card!**

For more about the benefits of a Premium Membership, check out the Help Guide article!

This should also give you a little time to attain QRew status, if you are working towards this month’s Clan War Requirements!

We hope you enjoy these extra rewards!

Munzee On!

*Please note that this Premium Membership trial only unlocks the features within the app. Upgrade to the full Premium Membership to unlock all the additional items!

**As always, it may take some time for the Golden Carrot and Howdy Card to reach those eligible, so please wait a day before contacting support@munzee.com if you don’t see yours at www.munzee.com/credits.

Camp Competition Results!

And the winner is…

Camp FrEEZ!

As they’ve been dominating the entire competition, this comes as no surprise… but we think the other camps made a valiant effort as well! The final point differences among Camp QRantine, Camp KenneZEE, and Camp Cap-A-Lot are so close, which is a testament to the effort ALL camps have put in!

Prizes

Now moving on to the part you’re probably most interested in — the prizes! Here’s what you will receive if you were active at any point during the competition and placed in a camp, based on how your team ranked:

  • Camp FrEEZ:
    • 1st Place Badge
    • Unique Greeting Card — more info on that below!
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths (see below) NOW through 23:59 MHQ on September 9th
  • Camp QRantine:
    • 2nd Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 30th
  • Camp KenneZEE:
    • 3rd Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 23rd
  • Camp Cap-A-Lot:
    • 4th Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 16th

With Camp FrEEZ victorious that means that the winning “Camp Myths” are the Dragon family, along with a few flying friends to make the bonus extra special.

To clarify, everyone will receive double points starting NOW on the following bouncers:

Unique Greeting Card Details

Having more time for double points than the other camps is definitely a useful perk for players in the first place camp, but we also wanted to give something exclusive! It’s the FrEEZ Flag greeting card! This greeting card will be the same as all other “limited edition” cards in terms of points. Each Camp FrEEZ camper will receive THREE cards.

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes of your card when you deploy to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific note will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

For more information on the Greeting Cards, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Support

We’ll be awarding the final prizes starting today, but as there were so many active players, it may take a while before you receive your badge and greeting card if applicable. Double points, however, should be working for everyone!

If, after a few days, you still haven’t received your final prizes, please e-mail support@munzee.com.

Camp Merch

If you haven’t treated yourself recently, pick up a shiny new personal tag, T-shirt, mug, or tote from Camp Munzee Collection HERE! The latest tPOB, the Bear Cub, will be available until next week!

Munzee on!

Thank Goodness These 20/20 Vision Munzees Aren’t Mirrored!

Glasses are great tools for millions, if not billions of people around the world — a simple solution to a big problem, and often the most appealing option for vision correction because of it! Unfortunately, despite improvements in their construction and materials, they are still quite fragile. Tape can temporarily patch up a snapped bridge, but there’s not much you can do for shattered lenses. These sorry shades were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Have you ever broken a pair of glasses?

Only eight Broken Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

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

Capturing the Broken Glasses will add this smart Scholarly Specs badge to your collection! Also, as of last week we’ve finally released the details on the overall capture line — the post is HERE if you missed it!

Don’t you wish you had a friend like Hermione to cast Oculus Reparo? If it’s been a while since you’ve read the Harry Potter series, you may be surprised to learn that that scene is not part of the book canon! However, the spell was not totally made up by the scriptwriters — Arthur Weasley does cast it in the second book. Regardless, we think it was a great change as it introduced Hermione’s character so effectively in the movie! Excuse us while we take this opportunity to reread the entire book series, followed by marathoning the entire movie series, for the 20th time to refresh our memories. Have you read or watched the Harry Potter series this year? Which character would you most like to be your friend in real life?

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 bouncing bifocals!

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!

Camp Competition Week 4

As announced earlier in the week, we decided to do one more weekly check-in! We thought everyone would appreciate an extra week of prizes before we announce the final results. Some final reminders for the rest of the competition:

  • Prizes for this week are starting to be awarded TODAY! It may take a while for everyone to receive their prizes, so please wait a few days before e-mailing support@munzee.com about Week 4 prizes.
  • Water Balloons and Flags will leave the map at August 9 at 23:59 MHQ.
    • You can check CuppaZee’s Camps Leaderboard to track your camp’s performance until this time. Then, the leaderboard will be closed as it needs some time to catch up with all the capture data and finish calculating all the point values.
  • Final results will be announced on August 11. These results will take the ENTIRE competition period into account, not just the period after this check-in.

Now that we’ve got all of that out the way, it’s time to announce the results for the past week! Congratulations to Camp FrEEZ for keeping its place at the top!

We’d also like to congratulate Camp QRantine for attaining the 2nd Place spot! It’s been a pretty fierce competition so we’re excited to see how it all turns out next week! Just a few more days to get your captures in!

Lastly, as this competition draws to a close, you might want a souvenir to commemorate the fun times that were had. Pick one up in the Camp Munzee Collection HERE! Among all the camp gear, you’ll also find our newest furry friend!

Munzee on!

Camp Competition Week 3

It’s time for another weekly check-in! We’re now in the home stretch, but we still wanted to give you some reminders as you continue Camp Munzee gameplay!

By now you should be familiar with CuppaZee’s Camps Leaderboard — but we don’t mind linking to it again! Maybe the only time you check it is when you read through this post!

Active players on ALL teams will receive prizes each week! Prizes for the previous week were awarded on Monday. If you were active (i.e. captured a munzee) during Week 2 and did not receive a prize (check your Item History on the Credits page), please e-mail support@munzee.com. Prizes for this week are starting to be awarded TODAY! It may take a while for everyone to receive their prizes, so please wait a few days before e-mailing Support about Week 3 prizes.

As we stated in the original blog post, the top team at the final check-in will receive double points on certain Myth captures for a whole month! We’re also planning to award additional prizes, but you’ll just have to wait and see!

Now that we’ve got all of that out the way, it’s time to announce the results for the past week! Congratulations to Camp FrEEZ for keeping its place at the top!

We’d also like to congratulate Camp Cap-A-Lot for attaining the 2nd Place spot! The point differences between the camps are smaller than the previous weeks, which shows that all camps are working hard and that you have to fight to keep your spot! Just one more week left — keep up the good work!

Lastly, if you missed our quick social post last week, we just wanted to let you know that you can purchase Camp Personal Tags in the store! You can find them in the Camp Munzee Collection HERE!

Munzee on!
