    • NOTE – It may take some time for a bouncer to land, so be sure to check back again soon
  • The Fortune Folder also acts as a standard landing pad, which means you can capture a bouncer anytime it lands there!
  • Other players will also be able to capture your Fortune Folder, but will not receive a prize.
    • Non-owners can also capture it whenever a bouncer is sitting on it.
  • The Fortune Folder may be moved to new locations in order for the owner to keep up with the daily prize captures.

  • Earn 15 Cake for 10-29 attendees.
  • Earn 25 Cake for 30-49 attendees.

🗺️ Introducing The Map Pak!

Last year our team began investigating the possibility of incorporating Google Maps into the app, and we’re excited to announce that after much testing we’re ready to offer this option to all players! In order to make this a viable option the Google Maps upgrade will be part of a new program we’re calling the Map Pak!


Google Maps Integration

Players can purchase the Map Pak through Shopify HERE for $4.00, which will give you 1 month access to Google Maps, plus 200 Zeds. For now this will not be a recurring payment and instead you’ll need to manually purchase the Map Pak each month. We expect to add a subscription option when we confirm everything is working as intended. This will be a long term solution we hope to offer very soon. After purchasing your Map Pak please give it a few minutes and then restart the app to find the new map option in the Settings menu. This section will now allow you to switch between using Apple or Google Maps at any time while the subscription is active. This area will also display how long until your subscription expires. NOTE – You must have the latest update 4.1.207 downloaded from the app stores in order to access this option. Please update to the latest version before purchasing the Map Pak to ensure everything still works as expected on your device.

The Map Pak purchase will help handle the costs associated with Google Maps, which have risen incrementally over the years. As many of you know, Google charges developers for using Google Maps. For those Munzee players who want to use Google Maps, we are incorporating those charges into the monthly Map Pak at our cost. Because of our game’s requirements for constant real world map refreshing this has previously been unattainable, but the Map Pak will allow users who choose to use Google Maps to do so.

Thank you to the Munzee beta testing group for helping us through this process, but please be patient as we roll this out to a larger group and be aware that there are some smaller known issues we will continue to work on. We want to acknowledge that unforeseen challenges are always possible, so your feedback will be invaluable as we continue to refine and improve our app.


Single Sign-On Limit

Alongside the Map Pak update we have also included a single sign-on limit for all users. If your account logs into the Munzee App on another device, you’ll be logged out and see a pop up notification on the original device as well. This limit is only for using the app across multiple phone/tablet devices, so players can still log into the website multiple times without affecting the app. The purpose of this change is to improve account security and to reduce issues that stem from account sharing.


Although these new features are live in the game, we’re still actively monitoring the impact so there could be further changes ahead if things need adjusted. Thank you for your understanding as we strive to offer better experiences game-wide. We understand that not everyone will choose to partake in the Map Pak, but we always encourage you to play your way, and we know the Google Maps addition has been a much requested feature. We strive to make the game’s experience smoother, more immersive, and ultimately more enjoyable for everyone, so good luck on your journey ahead!

Sincerely,

Team Munzee!

A Journey to the deep with NEW MECHZ!

We’ve heard of penny pinching, but you’ve hoarded enough Sand Dollars to fill Poseidon’s underwater vault! Put all that hard work to good use and embark on a daring quest for a 4 star feast! Prepare to dive deep into the depths in pursuit of the FOUR NEW ST@RFiSH MECHZ in the Redeem Store! These new marine mechz are eagerly awaiting capture, but be warned – they won’t surrender easily! 


ST@RFiSH Mechz!

We’re excited to introduce FOUR mesmerizing ST@RFiSH Mechz: Sunset Surge, embodying the beauty of a seaside sunset; Tealstream, with the serene hue of ocean blue tinged with algae; Royal Reef, showcasing regal reds and purples unseen in marine depths; and Gilded Coral, gleaming with the ocean’s Midas touch. Each boasts its own unique charm and allure.

Today, THREE ST@RFiSH are available to redeem for Sand Dollar credits! The Tealstream and Royal Reef are available to any players with Sand Dollars, and the Gilded Coral will be exclusive for Premium players to redeem. After you redeem any of the other three ST@RFiSH when you rebuild it with Cogs you’ll have the possibility of deploying a Sunset Surge as well as any of the colors you’ve already deployed. The more colors of ST@RFiSH you deploy the more options that will be randomized when rebuilding in the future.

Like other Munzee Mechz all ST@RFiSH are temporary POBs, remaining on the map until they have been captured 5 times. Each will automatically deploy on your account upon purchase, and you can rebuild them for 13 Cogs each. These Mechz will be in the store until 12:00 MHQ on Friday, March 15th, so shop before this 4 ST@R catch slips into the digital deep!

Points
  • Deploy: 500
  • Capture: 150-250
  • CapOn: 100-200
  • Brittle (5th Cap): 500
  • Brittle (CapOn): 200-250
Landing Pads

When a ST@RFiSH is captured, it will scatter up to 3 Starpoons that match the color scheme of each Mech.

Points
  • Capture: 50
  • CapOn: 25

These scatters will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Mech owner’s account. This means that unlike Air Mystery Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. Since they are passive deploys, these scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity.


Badges:

There is only one Blueprint badge for all four ST@RFiSH Mech. As a reminder what you rebuild will depend on how many ST@RFiSH you’ve redeemed with Sand Dollar credits. There will also be a badge for capturing one of each ST@RFiSH as well. 

Brave the depths and hurry to claim these each of these 4 elusive ST@RFiSH!

Introducing Daily Captures On Greenies!

While the Snowbirds have been at play Team Munzee has been hard at work behind the scenes preparing for a momentous 2024! Much of last year was focused on rebuilding our backend to prepare for the future, and now we’re ready to enact some of those big changes in 2024. We’re kicking things off with a BANG, because starting NOW players will be able to capture Greenies daily!

Yes, you read that right. Much like POIs, we’ve made the decision to allow greenies to be recaptured each day. Greenies are the backbone of the game, and we want to promote recurring gameplay for all of our players around the world. Our mission has always been to grow the map, and for nearly 13 years our players have excelled at encouraging discovery and outward expansion. In order to help grow our community we want players to be able to maintain and celebrate their local areas as well. We’re constantly impressed with players traveling hours to chase down specials or conquer clan requirements, but we also want to encourage new players to take part in daily gameplay so that they too can advance into more skilled aspects of the game.

While we anticipate this change being permanent, we’re still very actively monitoring gameplay and more than likely there will be some fine tuning on the horizon. Although we understand this is a big change for players who have been with us for more than a decade, we think it’s an important step for the future of the game. As 2024 continues we have even bigger plans ahead, so we appreciate that everyone keeps an open mind and focuses on constructive input. As always, there are a number of ways to play the game of Munzee so we encourage you all to take advantage of the changes to help in your own successes as well! 

You can hear directly from Rob with more information about this change on The Munzee Podcast at https://www.buzzsprout.com/2259447/14413763 or you can find it on all major podcasting platforms.

Thank you all for your support over the years. We’re very excited to show you all what’s next. Munzee on!

EDIT: We’ve added a NEW “Hide Daily Greenies” filter, which will allow players to hide all Greenies they’ve ever captured before to prevent them from reappearing on the map again every day. This option can be found in the Advanced filters section for Premium Members only.
