Fancy Flat Friends are Going Ghost!

After 3 Flat Day the 13ths, haven’t you ever wondered what happened to the Flat Friends you weren’t able to save? That’s right — they become Phantom Flats. As Fancy Flat Lou was just released a few months ago, we hope it’ll be a while before we see her Phantom Flat counterpart — but you never know…

Phantom Flats

Like the RetireMyths and Zombie Pouch Creatures before them, these game pieces will join the map once any Fancy Flat owned by an Inactive or Retired account has been archived. These munzees will roam the map at certain times, and are worth 500 points upon first capture, with the point value decreasing by 1 point per each subsequent capture of the unique Phantom Flat.

NEW RetireMyth

Joining her sisters, the physical and virtual Nymph RetireMyth is now eligible to appear.

As a reminder, RetireMyths are not attracted to magnets, and they land on the same type of Munzee as their regular counterpart. RetireMyths will be worth 500 points upon first cap and 1 point less for each cap that follows.

NEW Zombie Pouch Creatures

Last but certainly not least, Elekter, Magnetus, Pimedus, and Puffle now have Zombie Pouch Creature variants!

As a reminder, Zombie Pouch Creatures are not attracted to magnets, and they land on the same type of Munzee as their regular counterpart. Zombie Pouch Creatures will be worth 500 points upon first cap and 1 point less for each cap that follows. Please note that Zombie Pouch Creatures will NOT level up into their other forms.

Are you ready to find some haunted munzees? Remember that these are rare finds only available at select times! You can use our handy What’s New? section to help keep track!

Munzee on!

Put on These 20/20 Vision Munzees Before Looking Up Today!

To close out a year of 20/20 Vision, we’ve got some glasses to mark a very special occasion! These peeper protectors were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Do you enjoy watching eclipses?

Only twelve Eclipse Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to virtuals 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 Eclipse Glasses will add this eye-catching Solar Sight 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!

According to NASA, today’s eclipse will only be completely visible from Chile and Argentina — any Munzee players lucky enough to be located there? If so, here are their safety guidelines on viewing eclipses. The main point is making sure to wear protective Eclipse Glasses at all times — the only point when it is safe to view the eclipse without glasses is when the moon is completely covering the sun and not even the tiniest sliver of direct sunlight is reaching you. This happens for a very short time — just a few minutes — so unless you have absolutely perfect timing and know exactly when to put your Eclipse Glasses back on, it’s better to not put your eyes at risk and keep them on the entire time you’ll be viewing.

If you’re not located in Chile or Argentina but are still interested in having an eclipse-viewing experience, try to find a livestream you can watch! While it’s not quite like watching it up in the sky, the upside is you don’t have to worry about protecting your eyes — though you may still want to read up on the safety guidelines above, so that you are prepared for the next occurence near you!

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. These are the last 20/20 Vision specials of the year, so make sure to be on the lookout if you’re a fan! We hope you look forward to what we have in store for next year!

Hold These 20/20 Vision Munzees Up to a Bright Light Before Wearing!

If you ever had glow-in-the-dark stars, moons, and planets stuck to the walls and ceiling of your bedroom, we think these next 20/20 Vision Munzees are right up your alley! These phosphorescent frames were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Would you wear these at night?

Only twelve Glow In The Dark 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 Glow In The Dark Glasses will add this oozing with cool Night Vision 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!

This munzee is based on the iconic shutter shades, which typically come in solid plastic colors. Shutter shades feel like a recent invention —  as Blickers.com notes, you probably associate them with Kanye West as he wore them in his “Stronger” music video in 2007, kicking off a new trend. But, like many trends of today, early forms of shutter shades go all the way back to the 1950s! They went by the slightly more elegant name of “Venetian blinders.”

We’ve put our own spin on shutter shades by using phosphorescent plastic! Ever wonder how this type of plastic achieves its otherworldly glow? Colourchange.com has a neat and simple explanation:

Phosphors radiate visible light after being energized and require exposure to light for a while before they will glow in the dark.

Phosphors then slowly release their stored energy over time. As they release the energy, they emit small amounts of light, which we see as an object glowing.

This is different from fluorescence, which will immediately stop glowing once the energy source is gone.

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!

Welcome Walla EggZ – Suitable For Children of All Ages!

Last week we announced our special Holiday Card Collectors Club, and we’re happy to see many of you have joined! We’re looking forward to seeing a lot of Greeting Cards and Cyborg Santas on the map for everyone to cap (there’s still a lot of time to join). But that’s not the only thing we have planned for December! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on November 24th, Walla EggZ will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 15th.

A total of 798 Walla EggZ specials will be unleashed! That breaks down into 399 virtual Walla Joy Eggs and 399 physical Walla Surprise Eggs. Though there will only be one icon for each type shown on the map, there are a possibility of 8 different icons that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Greeting Cards work. Also similar to our World Laughter Day specials earlier this year! They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

Each of the 8 icons will correspond to a different fun-sized toy or candy! Will you be able to collect them all?

You can find these treasure-filled treats bouncing to the following:

Points

  • Capture: 78 points
  • CapOn: 39 points

Walla Joy Eggs will be attracted to Virtual Magnets, while Walla Surprise Eggs will be attracted to Physical Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

There is also a line featuring 5 new badges to earn. 3 are based off overall captures of Walla EggZ specials; the remaining 2 are based off capturing certain fillings. The first badge in the series appears as follows:

Box O’ Walla Eggz- Capture 1 Walla EggZ special.

It’s up to you to figure out the exact requirements for the remaining 4 badges! Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

Go Viral The Instant You Put On These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

No, these glasses aren’t from your favorite 8-bit video game — they’re from the “Deal with it” meme! If you’re not sure what we’re writing about, see our corresponding social posts for an example. These iconic shades were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. What is your favorite meme and why?

Only eleven Meme Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to virtuals 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 Meme Glasses will add this eye-catching Viral Vision 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!

So what exactly is a meme? Many of us know what they are intuitively, but it can be hard to find the right words to explain what they are to friends and family who’ve been living under rocks. Thankfully, “meme” has already made it into the dictionary, so here’s how merriam-webster.com defines it:

  1. an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture
  2. an amusing or interesting item (such as a captioned picture or video) or genre of items that is spread widely online especially through social media

The second definition is probably what you gravitate towards when defining memes, but the more general first definition is interesting too — it means that memes are very similar to trends or fads, but without the commercial connotation the latter two carry. What are some memes you can think of that didn’t originate on the internet? Here’s a fun example from BBC.com showing a meme from the 1920’s!

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!

Zeecret Agent Competition Results!

And the winner is…

The P.I.N.E. Agency!

As they’ve been dominating the entire competition, this comes as no surprise… but we admire the effort that P.E.A.R. Agents put in as well, especially in the face of such a tough opponent! There were just under 2300 total agents at the end of the competition, we are excited about this level of participation!

Prizes

Now moving on to the part you’re probably most interested in — the prizes! Here’s what you will receive if you opted into an agency on CuppaZee prior to the end of the competition and were active at any point during the competition, based on how your agency ranked:

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 other prizes.

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

Zeecret Agent Merch

If you haven’t treated yourself recently, pick up a shiny new personal tag, T-shirt, hoodie, or neck gaiter from the ZeeOps Collection HERE!

Need to Find a Needle in a Haystack? Try These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

Don’t get these mixed up with the VR Goggles — they may both be rectangular, but the only world these glasses will show you is the one that can’t be seen by the naked eye! These powerful pairs were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. What would you use these glasses for?

Only eleven Microscope 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 Microscope Glasses will add this perfectly precise Scientific Sight 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!

Our Microscope Glasses are actually based on OptiVISORs, which, according to doneganoptical.com, actually magnify rather than offer the granularity of a microscope. But “Magnifying Glasses” sounds too close to the single-lens tool’s name — and anyway, who said we had to adhere to reality? The main benefits of these are that you can wear them over any prescription glasses you need to see clearly, that your hands are freed up, rather than forced to hold a microscope (or magnifying glass!), and, since there is a lens for each eye — your magnified vision is in 3D! We think these would be great for Zeecret Agents or detectives — after all, isn’t the magnifying glass a symbol of a savvy sleuth? But perhaps these would attract more attention than desired while discreetly inspecting a crime scene — to say nothing of disguises or personal style. Better leave it to the scientists in the lab! Some other jobs we think could make use of Microscope Glasses include: sprinkle sorter, thread counter, and eyebrow plucker.

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!

Need a Last-Minute Halloween Costume? Slip on These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

Science says that male comedians with more delicate, feminine features tend to be more successful. However, the comedian behind these glasses is a great example of the contrary! These bushy bifocals were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Have you worn these glasses and gotten a chuckle out of anybody?

Only ten Disguise Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to virtuals 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 Disguise Glasses will add this discreet Groucho Glasses 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!

Groucho Marx, the inspiration behind this iconic pair, often played a German professor in his comedy acts. While the full brows and large nose are certainly over-the-top, the look just wouldn’t be complete without the prominent mustache. According to marx-brothers.org, Groucho’s signature stache was a result of some hurried costume prep:

He arrived late at the theater and used greasepaint to create a moustache. He found this so much easier than a glued-on moustache that he insisted on using this technique from then on.

The first pairs of Groucho Glasses was marketed sometime in the 1940s which was near the middle of his career, but unfortunately, in our quick research, we were unable to find any evidence of Groucho’s own thoughts on them. Did he find them even more convenient than his greasepaint? Or, at the other end, maybe he felt they took caricature too far and was offended by them?

Regardless, there’s no denying the place Groucho Glasses have in popular culture. There’s even a Guiness World Record for “Most people wearing Groucho Marx glasses”, which at the time of writing, was achieved in 2009 at the City of Chicago’s Outdoor Film Festival. There were 4,436 people wearing the glasses!

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.
