Goodbye September!

September is leaving us in just a few hours so we wanted to remind you of a few things that are leaving the Munzee game as well.

  • The old app. Wave farewell to the 2.x version of the Munzee app. On October 1st, it will be disabled, and Munzee will only exist in the 3.0 app. Read more about the reasons in our previous blog post.
  • Mystery Virtual Munzees. Adios to this fun item. It is retiring to make way for fun, new products in the future. Don’t worry, the current MVM will always remain in play and so will those in your undeployed list. A limited number will remain in the store until October 1st.

October Clan Wars center around the Munzee family jewels. Get your hands on some jewels to deploy today. Also, don’t forget about our clan transfer market if you are interested in finding a new clan or filling your current clan.

MHQ Bash 2015 and MHQ EuroBash 2015 are going on during the October 9-11 weekend. In honor of the Bash taking place in the UK, a VERY limited number of emerald pins will be sold today at 3:30pm MHQ time. They will appear in the store at this link. Limited to 1 per player. Check the calendar for any other local events you might be interested in attending. Also, don’t forget about the special Christmas events during the month of December.

We’ve got a lot more things coming soon, and we can’t wait to share them with you!

  2. Sunday’s brunch will be held at Celebration Park in Allen, Texas. We will be grilling hotdogs and hamburgers and offering Munzee Segway Tours (see below for more information).

To commemorate this, we’ve created a small and limited edition *garden in his image in Allen just a few miles away from Celebration Park. All pins in this garden are sold out at this time. Stay tuned for future sales.

Introducing the Zodiac Munzee Line

When we launched the MunzPak service, we wanted to provide subscribers with new munzees and exclusive launches. With the October MunzPak, we will be doing just that. It will include the beginning of a new line of munzees: The Zodiac Munzees. These are physical stickers, not credits or virtuals.

scorpio_Icon_128Each month will include a new member of the Zodiac line, starting with Scorpio in October. Every Zodiac will be worth 10 deploy, capture, and cap on points. During the zodiac’s range, however, those numbers will double. For example, if a Scorpio is deployed or captured between October 23rd and November 21st, it will be worth 20 capture, deploy, and cap on points. Players will also earn a corresponding badge when they deploy a Zodiac Munzee. You can also see this information at Zodiac stickers will be mailed each month in the MunzPak and available exclusively in this program.

October’s MunzPak will include 5 Scorpio Munzees, 1 Ruby Munzee, 1 Hotel Munzee, 1 Virtual Amethyst Munzee, and a $5 gift certificate to the Munzee Store that will be emailed to you.

If you aren’t currently a MunzPak subscriber and want to get September’s Virtual MunzPak, you can still subscribe before the end of the month. Once your subscription has processed this is your renewal date. If you would like to move that date forward in October you can email us on the date you would like your October’s MunzPak to be processed at **We are only able to move your subscription to the current date**

Communication is Key

There’s been some discussion regarding communication between Munzee and our players. We would like to clear up some of these topics.

First off, our official communication channels. When Munzee first started, we wanted to be accessible and monitor the pulse of the game very closely. In doing so, many members of Team Munzee were very active in unofficial groups and information was spread in multiple places. As the game and our business have grown, we’ve had to distance ourselves in some respects. Everyone plays the game their own way and though we would love to be able to take every request personally, we don’t all have the time to do so. From this point forward, all communications regarding gameplay changes, official announcements, etc. will come through this blog. Blog posts will still be linked through Munzee social media channels, but information will always lead back to here. We will still be posting daily on social media with content such as #MunzeeFound and game-related questions/discussions. If you would like to contact MHQ, we ask that you use official channels as well. Going to will provide you with the options you need to get in touch with us.

Secondly, the Munzee 3.0 app. As we’ve said before, Munzee has changed quite a bit since the beginning. We wanted to redesign the app to represent how far we’ve come and make it easier to update as we move forward. Part of this change to 3.0 requires us to stop the functionality of the 2.x versions of the apps. This decision was not taken lightly. We had many discussions internally about the future of the Munzee app, and for technological and financial, we had to make this choice.

As with all major updates and changes like this one, there are some compatibility issues and bugs in the code. Our developers are constantly working to improve the app for everyone. We take player suggestions and requests very seriously. Though we cannot always implement these ideas or detail what’s to come in the future, we want to ensure you that we do review the submissions we receive.

Lastly, our ever growing suite of apps. In the past year, we’ve added quite a few new apps to our repertoire. These apps take a lot of time to design, program, test, etc., and we try to maintain current apps while developing new apps and features the best we can. Our developers are dedicated to making their projects the best they can, and we’re in the process of structuring our teams to streamline these development processes. We have not, and will never, forget any of our apps or players who use those apps. There are always more features and updates in the pipeline. We will have more information on some of these changes very soon.

From everyone at MHQ, we want to thank you for playing Munzee. We are making it a priority to communicate pertinent information more effectively as we move forward. We hope you will like what’s to come, and grow the map!

Newz from the Prez

I wanted to take a few minutes and update everyone on several issues we are facing. The first is the release of iOS 9 and our subsequent blog post about how it would effect the use of our app. We appreciate the patience of our Apple phone using players as we patiently wait for version 3.0.2 to be approved by Apple. The second issue has been our announcement of removal of our 2.x apps from Google Play and the App store on October 1st. Many suggestions have been made about alternatives, however several core components to the app were due for renewal from their providers. With the release of 3.0 and the new core components the time was right to cut off the other services. We realize both of these issues are not optimal for our worldwide players but we are working to come up with the best solutions possible. To help ease some of the pain we’ve come up with something fun for all players! 🙂

As a thank you to our loyal players we are opening up the prize vault this weekend. From 00:01 September 18 until 23:59 September 20 you will have a chance to win random prizes from MHQ (all times are MHQ based, GMT -6). These prizes will be added to your credits or your undeployed list. Every capture and/or deploy during this time has a chance to earn you a prize so get out there and Grow the Map or paint the town red! Prizes include virtuals, mystery virtuals, virtual colors, motels, aquamarines, diamonds, rubies, and even blast captures! We wish you good luck and hope you spend some time this weekend with Munzee, family, and friends.

In addition we’ve also lowered the price on several products in the store for the weekend, starting at the time of this blog post. Check out the special deals here.

Thanks for your patience during our time moving forward with the new 3.0 version of Munzee. I can’t wait for you to see what else we have in store for you during this year of New Perspective.  — Rob

Important Information Regarding Munzee 3.0 and iOS 9

Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 16th, Apple will be releasing iOS 9 to the public. The framework for the current Munzee app WILL NOT work properly with iOS 9. We currently have an update in review to fix these errors. Apple, however, is not accepting requests to expedite app reviews because of the high influx of apps being submitted to the App Store. They have replied to our request, though, stating that they are reviewing apps as quickly as possible. We suggest that you not update to iOS 9 until the new Munzee update is available if you want it to continue working properly and see the changes we have made.

We realize this is not ideal, however we have been constrained by our framework provider and the Apple review process. We expect the update to be available soon and will notify you when it is released. Thank you for your continued support, and grow the map!
