We hope you are all enjoying the current Thanksgiving special. As you know, this Thursday is Thanksgiving in the US. MHQ will be closed Thursday, November 24th and Friday, November 25th so that the staff can spend time with their friends and families. This may affect the following:
- Shipping: Items ordered after Tuesday will be shipped on Monday, November 28th. This includes Munzee Online Store and Physical MunzPak purchases.
- Response Times: While we try to be as quick as possible when responding to issues and questions, there may be a larger delay during this holiday.
We all have many things to be thankful for, and one of those is having and being a part of such a wonderful community.
Thank you for your understanding, and Munzee on!
The Remembrance and Veteran’s Day Poppy Special honoring those who have served and those who lost their lives in the line of duty ends tonight (November 15th) at 23:59 MHQ time. If you haven’t captured one yet, you still have a bit of time! We are thankful for all members of the armed forces worldwide. Speaking of being thankful, we would like to continue the trend of giving thanks through the end of the month. With the removal of the poppies, a new special will land on the map just two minutes later.
American Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November and falls on November 24th this year. The holiday traces back to a harvest feast at Plymouth in 1621 at which Pilgrims and Native Americans celebrated together. (Our friends to the North celebrate Thanksgiving on the second Monday of October, and the holiday traces back to a 1578 voyage.) In modern days, Thanksgiving is celebrated with parades, feasts with family and friends (also known as “Friendsgiving”), and football.
Team Munzee wants to share this celebration with, and give thanks for, our wonderful worldwide community. When you capture a turkey leg, leave a comment on the Munzee letting the host know something you are thankful for! MHQ is thankful for the opportunity to continue providing a game that builds such a friendly and supportive community!
From 00:01 MHQ time on November 16th through 23:59 MHQ (CST) time on November 30th, there will be 1621 Turkey Leg icons on the map that will bounce on greenies every six hours, or when it is captured. You will earn 24 points for capping one of these icons, and the owner of the host greenie will earn 11 points. You will also earn the Happy Thanksgiving 2016 badge for capping one of the icons. You may NOT capture an icon on your own Munzee.
The Munzee community is a family, and we’re thankful that you are part of it.
Have fun, and Munzee on!
Though our players worldwide may not celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving at the same time as the US, Team Munzee would like to take this chance to give our thanks for players all around the globe. Without you, there is no Munzee. Thank you for choosing to play our game. We, as a team, will continue to put our heart and soul into this game daily. We can’t wait to unveil some of the upcoming plans with you, when the time is right. This year you have learned to Expect the Unexpected and we aren’t finished yet! Stay tuned for a fun way to ring in the new year!
Thank you very much on behalf of Team Munzee — Rob Vardeman —– President Munzee Inc
