Announcing World Photo Day Specials!

Say cheese!

We’re excited to announce new Camera Specials in celebration of World Photo Day on Sunday August 19! The Specials will be on the map starting August 17 at 00:01 MHQ and will last until August 20 at 23:59 MHQ.

2,009 Camera Specials will bounce on Greenies and Premium Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. The Camera Specials will also be attracted to Magnets on greenies. Players will be able to capture these on their own Greenies and Premium Munzees as well.

Points:  

  • Capture: 100
  • CapOn: 20 on Greenie
  • CapOn: 70 on Premium

Per usual there will be a badge for capping one of the specials, but you never know what other badges you could earn. Since these are CAMERA specials there will also be another special badge you can earn by uploading pictures to munzees throughout the weekend. Remember that placing pictures on munzees is a Premium feature, so this badge will only be able to be earned if you have a Premium Membership.

You can purchase a Premium Membership and Magnets in the Freeze Tag Online Store. We also have a limited number of World Photo Day Personal Tags in the store as well.

What would World Photo Day be without photos though? We want to see your best Munzee photos throughout the weekend on social media. Upload photos you take when playing Munzee using #WorldPhotoDay and #MunzeeOn to be eligible. One winners will be chosen from each of our three social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and awarded those prizes by the end of next week. We will also have prizes for three photos placed on munzees in the app through the weekend. These winners will also be chosen by the end of next week.

We hope you’re ready to strike a pose! Get out and document your adventures as you Munzee on!

Nomad and RUM Point Updates!

Rover, wanderer, nomad, vagabond, call him what you will…

We call them the Nomad Munzees and they are a big part of our game. Recently we updated the number of Nomads bouncing around our worldwide map. We’re excited to announce that starting NOW we have updated the number of points you receive from capturing one of these elusive little wanderers.

Mystery Nomads will split 500 points between Capture and CapOn.

Regular Nomads, Virtual Nomads, Jewel Thief Nomads, Bellhop Nomads, Pirate Nomads, and Warrior Nomads will all give 500 Capture points and 250 CapOn points.

Do you have trouble collecting these Nomads? Are you interested in building a Nomad landing pad in your area? Today we’ve created a special Nomad Pak that contains all of the options (except clan weapons) for the different Nomads to land on.

The Nomad Pak includes:

  • 2 Reseller Munzees*
  • 2 Jewel Munzees
  • 2 Mystery Munzees
  • 1 Hotel Munzee
  • 1 Motel Munzee
  • 5 Generic stickers

Purchase of this Nomad Pak for the sale price of $12.50 will include a free MVM for a limited time. Please read below for details on how to purchase a Nomad Pak!

If a customer has the Nomad Pak (https://store.freezetag.com/products/nomad-pak) and an MVM (https://store.freezetag.com/products/mvm) in their cart and they use “NOMADSALE” during checkout, the MVM will be free. OR you can follow this link https://store.freezetag.com/discount/NOMADSALE — the discount will be automatically applied. Either way you must add both products to your cart in order to receive the MVM for free.

Speaking of Resellers and RUMs, we’re updating their points as well! Arrrrrgh, matey!

Starting August 18 at 00:01 MHQ time all RUMs (Reseller Unique Munzees) will be worth 40 points for Deploy, 35 points for Cap, and 30 for CapOn! Remember you can purchase RUMs from our authorized reseller website.

Good luck in your future efforts of Nomad collecting and Munzee On!

*Reseller stickers in Nomad Pak (RUMs) are from two inactive resellers no longer part of our program.

Letter From Zee Prez

Howdy Munzeers!

It’s time for a quick update on the overall progress and direction of Munzee! Over the past few months we’ve made some changes to the game and been working behind the scenes on a new version of the app. While I don’t have all of the details to share with you today I’d like to give you some information to help you know where we are headed.

As we move toward the 4.0 version of the Munzee app we are preparing many things behind the scenes. One of those is a much needed update to the point structure. In the beginning there was one type of Munzee, affectionately nicknamed the greenie. Other types were added over time with each becoming more and more valuable. The greenie sat in the shadows even though it is the cornerstone to the game. I want you to know that we have a plan for greenie points and it’s going to be rolled out soon. We love the greenie as much as you do and want to return the cornerstone to it’s place in the sun! In the meantime we will continue to update the point structure of many other types. You may notice the majority of point updates have happened to physical Munzee types. There is a purpose behind that as we know physical gameplay accomplishes our goals to get people active and moving. You will see us continue to drive the physical portion of the game forward since it is the majority of deploys worldwide, and always will be. Thanks for your patience during this big point update project.

Munzee 4.0 is a very large project as well. We aren’t quite ready to put it in the hands of beta testers yet, but we are feeling good about the progress through our alpha testing recently. The app is getting a complete makeover while the functionality you’ve come to expect will remain intact. The core gameplay is our focus while we also cleanup many side menus and organize features in a better way. We think you’re really going to enjoy it and can’t wait to get it out there in the field being tested. Stay tuned for more updates including information about beta testing and changes before the full launch of version 4.0.

I hope you’ve been participating in the variety of ways Munzee offers through gameplay options. We have events put on by players all of the world. Participate in Clan wars and join a group of 10 worldwide players to compete monthly in order to try and reach goals and win prizes. Recruiting for monthly clan wars is open on the 1st and 2nd of each month. You can also challenge yourself to complete our daily and weekly ZeeOps to earn prizes. We have plans to continue updating and evolving each of these interactive styles of gameplay after 4.0 launches and we can focus on each individually.

There are portions of the game you may think we’ve forgotten about, but believe me when I say that we have not. Munzee is huge and an intricate tapestry so we have to work on it one piece at a time currently! Remember our theme for the year? The Time Is Now! We remember and we’re working hard every day to make updates and keep things fresh. Please help us by growing the game and growing the map! The future of Munzee is so bright and we have so many great things in store. We can’t do any of this without our amazing Munzee community and we remember that fact daily. You are our focus.

Please contact us with questions, suggestions, and issues. My apologies if we don’t respond to every suggestion because we receive so many that we are really working on. The great ones might even make it into the game! I look forward to meeting some of you at upcoming events and interacting with others online!

Munzee On!

Rob Vardeman
Munzee President and Chief Zee Officer 😉

Mystery Munzee Point Increase!

If you’ve been paying attention, you may have noticed that we have slowly been rolling out point updates to a variety of different munzee types. We’re excited to announce that Mystery Munzee points are the latest to be updated! Starting NOW the points for Capturing, Deploying and Cap-Ons for Mystery and Mini Mystery Munzees has been increased to the following:

  • Deploy: 60
  • Capture and CapOn: Split 80 with a minimum of 20 as multiples of 5 (20/60, 30/50, 45/35, etc.)

With this point increase comes a merger of Mini Mysteries and Mysteries as well. Moving forward, both will just be called “Mysteries” regardless of their size**. Please note that this point increase is not retroactive, so past deploys and captures will not be increased.

In celebration of the new Mystery Munzee point structure we have a special offer in the Freeze Tag Online Store! From now until Wednesday at 23:59 MHQ if you buy two packs of Mystery Munzees (5 Pack) you’ll be given *additional stickers in each pack! To take advantage of this offer just buy a minimum of 2 Mystery Munzees in the online store, no code is necessary. Each additional set of 2 purchased will receive added free stickers.

The prevailing theory is that all these recent point increases are linked to the development of Munzee 4.0- and you wouldn’t be wrong in thinking that! Others seem to think the point increases are a drive to promote the physical side of Munzee gameplay and we agree with that theory as well! So stay tuned for more information regarding 4.0, point increases and more.

Munzee on!

*Free stickers will be a minimum $5 value for each order of 2 Mystery Munzee packs. They will be a mix of generic and pre-coded Munzee type stickers.
**Developer side note: the Munzee type code for mystery and minimystery has been combined and only one survives. This note is for those API developers who understand, the rest of us have no need to worry about this line. 😉

Premium Sale Extended!

We have extended our 10% off sale on Premium Munzee Memberships to Monday at 10:00 MHQ. You can purchase your membership in the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE.

One of the many features available to Premium members is the ability to add photos to the Munzees you capture. This gives both the owner of the Munzee and other players the chance to see how much fun you had finding it! It is especially fun for those myths and alternamyths!

We’ll have some news next week regarding a special photo contest specific to adding photos to Munzees. So you might want to take advantage of the membership while it’s on sale! Again, we’ll have more information next week, but get ready to say cheese!

Thank you all and Munzee on!

Introducing The Myth Upgrade!

Birthday Month is nearly over, but we have one final surprise! We’re proud to announce that Myth Upgrades are now available in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

Give your Mythological Munzee a power-up! The Myth Upgrade* is a credit item you can use on any of your Mythological Munzees. Myth Upgrade credits are $5 and you can use one per Myth that you own.

When the credit is used your Myth will then have the ability to be “nudged” to a new Munzee. You can use the nudge feature up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day) but only after it has sat for 3 hours. This gives players the opportunity to find it before you send it on its way! Please note that this is different than the way nudges worked with Mermaid release. Starting now Mermaid nudges will work the same way as the Myth Upgrade and they will need to sit for 3 hours before they can be nudged.

The Myth Upgrade will also allow you to rename your old Myths! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize your myth’s moniker. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct and family friendly environment!

UPDATE: All Mermaids have been sold.
In celebration of the Myth Upgrade, we’ve also put a handful of Mermaids for sale in the online store. So if you missed out on these gilled gals last month now is your chance! You can find them HERE.

We’ve had an absolute blast of a birthday month and an even better time beating the Texas heat here at MHQ all Summer long. We still have some odds and ends in the online store from this month, including Personal Tags from the CA Birthday Bash, Mermaid and Siren Decals, Clown Car personals and more. We have also put a discount on the “Less Than Perfect” personal tags as well!

Thank you to all of our players, we’re excited for everything to come. We hope you enjoyed Zee Greatest Show On Earth! #MunzeeOn #CirqueDuMunz

*The Myth Upgrade will not work for Pouch Creature Munzees.
