A Virtual Nomad to Carry Your Bags!

After much code wrangling, we are happy to announce the release of new Virtual Bellhop Nomads! Similar to the Jewel Thief and Warrior Nomads, the original Bellhop Nomads were only bouncing to the physical types of their corresponding landing pad categories.

10 NEW Virtual Bellhop Nomads have been unleashed on the map. To keep the total number of each type at 20, this means that 10 of the original Virtual Bellhop Nomads will be removed. Like other nomads, they will bounce every 12 hours or when captured.

These captures will also count toward the Nomad Munzee Badge Line.

Landing Pads:

Points:

  • Capture: 500
  • CapOn (for host owner): 250

Better your chances at capping a Virtual Bellhop Nomad by deploying a Virtual Destination Munzee near you! Please note that Skylands are not included in its list of landing pads. If you don’t already have any Virtual Destination Munzees in your inventory, you can shop the collection at the Freeze Tag Store, or perhaps make a trade with other players who have them stocked up!

We hope you look forward to spotting these extremely rare pieces on the map!

Munzee on!

Ready for More NoMadness?!

While we were fleshing out the idea for the Zeecret Agent Nomad, we reviewed the other Nomads that were released and found that we had some gaps to fill! First off, we are excited to announce the new Gaming Nomad Munzee!

Gaming Nomad Details

Beginning Thursday, November 5th at 12:00 MHQ 20 Gaming Nomads will start bouncing on Gaming Munzees every 12 hours or when captured.

These captures will also count toward the Nomad Munzee Badge Line.

To clarify, Gaming Nomads will only land on the original player-deployed munzee and NOT any types that scatter from them. In list form:

Landing Pads:

  • Physical Gaming Nomad
    • Prize Wheel
    • Scatter — will scatter if capped while hosting a Gaming Nomad
    • Rock Paper Scissors
    • Bowling Ball — will not scatter if capped while hosting a Gaming Nomad; may change in the future
    • Urban Fit
    • Physical Joystick — will not scatter if capped while hosting a Gaming Nomad; may change in the future
  • Virtual Gaming Nomad
    • Surprise
    • Sir Prize Wheel — will not scatter if capped while hosting a Gaming Nomad; may change in the future
    • Virtual Joystick — will not scatter if capped while hosting a Gaming Nomad; may change in the future

Points:

  • Capture: 500
  • CapOn (for host owner): 250

Better your chances at capping a Gaming Nomad by deploying a Gaming Munzee near you! If you don’t already have any Gaming Munzees in your inventory, you can shop the collection at the Freeze Tag Store, or perhaps make a trade with other players who have them stocked up!

NEW Virtual Nomads

We also determined that the Jewel Thief and Warrior Nomads were only bouncing to the physical types of their corresponding landing pad categories. To correct this, we’ve released 10 new virtual versions of each as well! To keep the total number of each type at 20, this means that 10 of the original physical Jewel Thief and Warrior Nomads will be removed from the map.

We hope you look forward to spotting these extremely rare pieces on the map!

A New Nomad May Tip The Scales…

Agents, last week when we paused the competition, we came up with the idea of a “Golden Snitch”-like game piece that would be worth a lot of points. However, instead of introducing a new Zeecret Agent Competition special, we wanted something a bit more permanent. Naturally, that line of thinking led us to something very similar that we already have in the game — Nomads! We are excited to announce the new Zeecret Agent Nomad Munzee! Please note that it has not been added to the competition yet, but it will be soon! Keep an eye out on CuppaZee’s page!

Zeecret Agent Nomad Details

Beginning Tuesday, October 27th at 15:00 MHQ 20 Zeecret Agent Nomads will start bouncing on Briefcases and Night Vision Goggles every 12 hours or when captured.

These captures will also count toward the Nomad Munzee Badge Line.

Points:

  • Capture: 500
  • CapOn (for host owner): 250

Better your chances at capping a Zeecret Agent Nomad by deploying a Briefcase or Night Vision Goggles near you! As these Zeecret Weapons are only available from completing ZeeOps Missions, make sure to check your Daily ZeeOps Mission each day for a chance of receiving some, or perhaps make a trade with other players who have them stocked up!

We hope you look forward to spotting these extremely rare pieces on the map!

2016- Letter From The President

2016 was great year for Munzee Inc. and we’re excited to look back on some of the highlights! The “2016 in Review” series will showcase different aspects of the company and some of our team’s favorite parts of 2016.

As I sit and reflect on 2016, I’m not even sure how to encompass the entire year in one quick letter. There have been some amazing moments and some very difficult ones as well. As usual we’ve made some tweaks that have been wildly popular and others that have touched a nerve. Through it all I can honestly look back on the year and see that each choice along the path has lead us to the best possible place to launch into 2017, with an “All In” enthusiasm.

I’ve had the opportunity to visit new locations across the world this year in order to help you spread the word about Munzee. Each trip allows me to meet players that are the core to our game, and I hope you know that our interactions mean the world to me. I enjoy hearing the stories of improved health, weight loss, and how Munzee has introduced you to a worldwide community of people you now call friends. The same is true for me. Physically I’m in the best shape of the past 20 years, due in no small part to our MunzFit initiative. You can look forward to a renewed focus on this sector of our game in 2017. I currently have plans to send members of the team to events all over the world, with announcements being prepared for the upcoming months. Here’s a sneak peek for a few we will attend, and others we already have our eyes on as possibilities. If you would like to be considered for a visit by Team Munzee get your event on the calendar soon and start promoting it! We are quickly finalizing details on a unique location and opportunity to celebrate our 6th birthday. However, we want to go ahead and invite you to join the party in Muncie, Indiana from the 21st of July through the 23rd. We are also working on tools for you to use to reach out to your local organizations to spread the word about Munzee. Worldwide events are our main tool to grow this game, so we will invest our resources in streamlining the processes and providing you even more necessary tools to be amazing!

I’ve been fortunate to present donations to several charitable organizations on behalf of our worldwide player base. It is part of the mission of Munzee to build strong communities, and this giving back is our way of doing this locally and globally. In 2017 you will see our charity-based focus continue to shine through. This is core to who we are and what we believe Munzee should do. We will continue to look for charities that have the ability to impact global communities. This ties in with our 2017 theme, which will be announced in the coming days.

I’ve been asked to share with you some of the things you can expect from Munzee for 2017. As most of you know, I possess a talent for being completely vague in responding to questions about the future. Many times in the past it is because we literally had not planned beyond the things you already knew about (that’s serious transparency there). I’m proud to say we are approaching 2017 with MANY things already in motion for expansions to current things and introducing new programs alike. *Drumroll please*…I’m excited to announce ZeeOps is almost here! We have been working diligently behind the scenes to bring this to life. The basic premise behind ZeeOps is best described as individual clan wars. There will be an opportunity for you to earn, and purchase, Zee Credits (I’m calling it Zee Cred) to be redeemed for ZeeOps which will contain daily missions. When the ZeeOp (Operation) is completed you will earn rewards. All the details will be released in the next 1000 hours, so get ready for an amazing kick off to 2017. In addition we have been excited about the buzz around our Munzee coin line. We have been working diligently to design new styles and have great news for you early in the New Year about this fun addition to the game. This will include a full explanation of what Coinz are and how to use them. A Roverhaul is being discussed with probable implementation as we enter the MHQ summer months. We will have some awesome monthly themes you will see across the entire company in many facets.

I’m proud of our team and what we have accomplished this year. As in every company individuals come and go from time to time, and we have seen several members of the team move on this year. It was difficult in the moment but the remaining team has stepped in and made the best of every opportunity. I’m fortunate to lead a worldwide family of team members that are motivated everyday to do their best for you, our players. In the end we all want to provide the best experience for you, so you will share our little game with your friends and family. You are our most valuable team member and resource and we remember that daily. In 2017 we will grow our MHQ staff, focusing on the tech team in order to provide more timely updates to our apps and websites. We have invested heavily in our infrastructure in 2016 with plans in 2017 to prepare for, and push on toward 500,000 players worldwide across Munzee Inc games. We will launch an Android version of our popular collection game, WallaBee in early 2017. We will also focus on finding additional partnerships to expand the reach of Munzee.

In closing, I have to say I’m humbled and deeply honored to continue to serve as President of a company that provides the games we do. I will continue to lead our company in line with our mission, to provide innovative apps that build community and make a worldwide impact. If I’ve never had the privilege to interact with you, I hope this year I am able. I’m fairly active in our Facebook groups, occasionally on Twitter or Instagram, and always available via Munzee message (coachV). Additionally, you can find me in my two dimensional version in app anytime I’m away from the office. 🙂 Thank you for the difference you make in my life, and the lives of our team members, through playing one of our “games”. It’s my personal mission to make a difference in your life as well. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Munzee On!

2016- Eventzee

2016 was great year for Munzee Inc. and we’re excited to look back on some of the highlights! The “2016 in Review” series will showcase different aspects of the company and some of our team’s favorite parts of 2016.

As Director of Operations for Eventzee, it has been a pleasure seeing this section of the company grow exponentially in its second year. We have worked on so many unique events, seen thousands of amazing photos and pushed our mobile scavenger hunt app to new levels.

So much has happened this year it’s impossible to list everything. Our app had tons of updates including awesome new features and fixes to bugs. We got a much needed website update through the awesome work from front end developer/designer Judy Nguyen.

Eventzee’s goal for 2016 was to find new avenues of business and work with an even greater variety of conferences, festivals and events of all shapes and sizes. By enhancing our outreach efforts we have built relationships with recurring clients and begun developing partnerships with other scavenger hunt companies.

Specifically we would like to thank Distel Wolfe Events, Thrill of The Hunt, and City Fun Group for adapting the Eventzee app into their own companies’ event selections. While Eventzee offers a service for customizable mobile based scavenger hunts, these partners can offer a more hands on approach to developing clues, running events and more. Each of these companies has helped us expand our worldwide player base and also offered invaluable suggestions for making the most out of our app updates.

To learn more about Eventzee’s partnership program contact eventzee@munzee.com.

Perhaps the greatest partnership of all is with our parent company Munzee. With the help of Munzee Events Manager Louise Gibson player events have utilized Eventzee in great ways. Dedicated players have shown how well they can host events of their own with ease and are constantly discovering new ways to play.

To learn more about hosting your own Munzee Event or to see if there is an event near you, check out https://calendar.munzee.com/!

While much of our focus went toward growing business, we also continued to enjoy the smiles, laughs and, of course, high fives from our players this year. It’s always a pleasure when we can go to events and see the game in action, so we hope to travel even more next year.

This year alone Eventzee had 262,380 photos taken through the app and we hosted 875 events! We’re so excited for 2017 and all the bigs things to come. Thank you to everyone who made 2016 great- see you next year!

-Dylan Derryberry
Director of Operations, Eventzee

Eventzee: Scavenger Hunts Made Easy was created by Munzee Inc. in 2015. The app is currently available for iOS and Android devices.

2016- WallaBee In Review

2016 was great year for Munzee Inc. and we’re excited to look back on some of the highlights! The “2016 in Review” series will showcase different aspects of the company and some of our team’s favorite parts of 2016.

Robbie McGuire, WallaBee Manager

We are lovingly calling 2016 the year of growing pains. As Munzee has had WallaBee for a year now, we’ve seen many growth opportunities- some good, some bad- that have added great changes in the app and community. We’re proud of everything we accomplished this year and excited for what’s to come.

~Community~
The BeeKeeper program has grown from a few players approving places to a full-fledged team of forum moderators, helping make the game better for all.

Hardships were found in the community, from simple drama to losing players to death. Through it all, the community has found a way of coming together to hold others up. You don’t see this kind of community through normal mobile gaming and we’re proud to be a part of it.

WallaBee “One Year With Munzee” Celebration in Anaheim, CA.

~Gaming~
Over 350 items were released in 2016. Sets like Wombie Walentine Wapocolypse, Tell Us A Tale, Veni Vidi Mixi, Sushi Madness, BCA, and Cracking Under Pressure have showcased the types of sets that WallaBee is known for.

Users were able to commission new uniques for the first time in a long time. Players are also able to save more than 255 Unique items to their set without issues. With the addition of over 90 new uniques this year, the extra room was definitely needed.

New subcategories were added to the map, some previous subcategories were adjusted to blend categories, and players can now stash more items than ever. It is obvious that locations have been modified to best accommodate players, wherever they are.

~Extra Fun~
We also saw the addition of various physical items, like the pins, shirts, and the Limited Edition WallaBee Card Game. This game was created by staff for a completely new experience with the WallaBee artwork you know and love.

Plans for 2017
The biggest question on everyone’s mind is: “When does Android come out?” We are working hard to make this dream a reality. We anticipate launching the Android app in Spring 2017 (date TBD).

Beyond the player support and gameplay you’ve grown to expect, you can expect to see exciting game growth, technology improvements, and even more items to collect. We are excited for what 2017 has in store for WallaBee! Join us as we take this road together.

-Robbie McGuire
WallaBee Manager

Munzee Madness V

WallaBee: Trading and Collecting Game was acquired by Munzee Inc. in 2015. The app is currently available on iOS devices and an Android version is coming soon.

2016- Munzee Events

2016 was great year for Munzee Inc. and we’re excited to look back on some of the highlights! The “2016 in Review” series will showcase different aspects of the company and some of our team’s favorite parts of 2016.

It gives me great pleasure to take a few minutes away from setting up all these amazing Christmas parties to say THANK YOU to all of the players for their contribution to events. To my lovely hosts for putting the events on and being so great to work with, and to the amazing players that travel all over the world to attend the events and make them so fun.

My favourite aspect is the artwork and I’d like to say a massive thanks to the incredible Trish for her amazing work. I also love seeing you all have fun and get involved at the events in your Dodgy Jumpers and Easter Bonnets!

It’s fun to surprise my loyal hosts with stuff such as Emerald gardens in their area and to reward attendees with hidden extras at the events they go to. This will continue.

I loved the MunzFit events and the way players supported me, Rob and Matt in our successful attempt at 2 Guinness World Records, thank you.

I’ve been lucky enough to attend a few events myself this year and it’s been wonderful to put names to faces and meet players I’ve been working with for a couple of years now. I will be continuing my efforts to spread the events love far and wide and look forward to working with many of you and meeting even more of you!

Munzee on and thank you x.
