Premium Prizes For Captivating Campers!

Starting with our Player of the Month requirements announced a few weeks ago, we wanted to make this month all about reaching out to and supporting all the new players that have discovered Munzee during these tough times.

Last week we posted about the new tutorials we’ve added to the Help & Info section of the app, which is just one of many steps we are taking to make the app more friendly to new players. Another step we’ve taken is testing out week-long Premium trials for new players when they sign up. So far, the results have been good, so it looks like the Premium trials are here to stay!

Since we’ve committed to giving all new players a week-long Premium trial, we wanted to extend the offer to others as well! Whether you’re a new player who joined before the trials started, or a veteran player who hasn’t chosen to take the next step, this is your chance to get a taste of the Premium life.

To players who were active during the period of July 1 to August 10:

  • If you are NOT currently a Premium Member, you will receive a week-long Premium trial starting today!*
  • If you are already a Premium Member (but not currently on a week-long trial), you will receive a Golden Carrot and a Howdy Greeting Card!**

For more about the benefits of a Premium Membership, check out the Help Guide article!

This should also give you a little time to attain QRew status, if you are working towards this month’s Clan War Requirements!

We hope you enjoy these extra rewards!

Munzee On!

*Please note that this Premium Membership trial only unlocks the features within the app. Upgrade to the full Premium Membership to unlock all the additional items!

**As always, it may take some time for the Golden Carrot and Howdy Card to reach those eligible, so please wait a day before contacting support@munzee.com if you don’t see yours at www.munzee.com/credits.

Camp Competition Results!

And the winner is…

Camp FrEEZ!

As they’ve been dominating the entire competition, this comes as no surprise… but we think the other camps made a valiant effort as well! The final point differences among Camp QRantine, Camp KenneZEE, and Camp Cap-A-Lot are so close, which is a testament to the effort ALL camps have put in!

Prizes

Now moving on to the part you’re probably most interested in — the prizes! Here’s what you will receive if you were active at any point during the competition and placed in a camp, based on how your team ranked:

  • Camp FrEEZ:
    • 1st Place Badge
    • Unique Greeting Card — more info on that below!
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths (see below) NOW through 23:59 MHQ on September 9th
  • Camp QRantine:
    • 2nd Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 30th
  • Camp KenneZEE:
    • 3rd Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 23rd
  • Camp Cap-A-Lot:
    • 4th Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 16th

With Camp FrEEZ victorious that means that the winning “Camp Myths” are the Dragon family, along with a few flying friends to make the bonus extra special.

To clarify, everyone will receive double points starting NOW on the following bouncers:

Unique Greeting Card Details

Having more time for double points than the other camps is definitely a useful perk for players in the first place camp, but we also wanted to give something exclusive! It’s the FrEEZ Flag greeting card! This greeting card will be the same as all other “limited edition” cards in terms of points. Each Camp FrEEZ camper will receive THREE cards.

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes of your card when you deploy to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific note will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

For more information on the Greeting Cards, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Support

We’ll be awarding the final prizes starting today, but as there were so many active players, it may take a while before you receive your badge and greeting card if applicable. Double points, however, should be working for everyone!

If, after a few days, you still haven’t received your final prizes, please e-mail support@munzee.com.

Camp Merch

If you haven’t treated yourself recently, pick up a shiny new personal tag, T-shirt, mug, or tote from Camp Munzee Collection HERE! The latest tPOB, the Bear Cub, will be available until next week!

Munzee on!

Return of the Couch Potato

Today is National Lazy Day! Whether you’re a real-life Hometown Hero, someone fortunate enough to work from home, or someone with more unique circumstances in-between the two, everyone is being challenged to work without all the resources one is used to having, and often putting in longer hours. The work-life balance struggle is real! Have you scheduled in some time for rest and relaxation? If not, today is the perfect day to do it!

We are happy to announce the NEW Couch Potato Card is now available for purchase! You can pick up Greeting Cards from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. Remember, you receive multiple munzees from your single purchase! Read the details in the store, or see below.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

We have 1 new Limited Edition card for your deploying pleasure!

Tell your hardworking friends and family to relax with a Couch Potato Card!

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific greeting will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

The Couch Potato Card will be available from National Lazy Day (Aug 10) through National Potato Day on August 19. Who comes up with these wacky holidays? No clue, but what better way to celebrate than by sending your buds a sleepy spud?!

This brings the current lineup of Greeting Cards available for purchase to the following:

  • Open Edition (will always be available; ONE Purchase yields FOUR munzees)
    • Birthday
    • Get Well
    • Thank You
    • Congrats
    • Sorry
    • Sorry 1
    • Sorry 2
    • Sorry 3
    • Summer
    • Winter
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Stay Home
    • Couch Potato

As a refresher, the point structure for Greeting Cards is as follows:

  • Open Edition
    • Deploy: 50
    • Capture: 40
    • CapOn: 25
  • Limited Edition
    • Deploy: 60
    • Capture: 50
    • CapOn: 30

Remember that these munzees will be archived 7 days after they are deployed, so make sure your intended recipient captures it before then!

Munzee on!

Thank Goodness These 20/20 Vision Munzees Aren’t Mirrored!

Glasses are great tools for millions, if not billions of people around the world — a simple solution to a big problem, and often the most appealing option for vision correction because of it! Unfortunately, despite improvements in their construction and materials, they are still quite fragile. Tape can temporarily patch up a snapped bridge, but there’s not much you can do for shattered lenses. These sorry shades were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Have you ever broken a pair of glasses?

Only eight Broken Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing the Broken Glasses will add this smart Scholarly Specs badge to your collection! Also, as of last week we’ve finally released the details on the overall capture line — the post is HERE if you missed it!

Don’t you wish you had a friend like Hermione to cast Oculus Reparo? If it’s been a while since you’ve read the Harry Potter series, you may be surprised to learn that that scene is not part of the book canon! However, the spell was not totally made up by the scriptwriters — Arthur Weasley does cast it in the second book. Regardless, we think it was a great change as it introduced Hermione’s character so effectively in the movie! Excuse us while we take this opportunity to reread the entire book series, followed by marathoning the entire movie series, for the 20th time to refresh our memories. Have you read or watched the Harry Potter series this year? Which character would you most like to be your friend in real life?

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these bouncing bifocals!

Show us how you Munzee! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and mention us on Facebook (@Munzee) or Instagram (@munzeeapp). Good luck, and Munzee on!

Camp Competition Week 4

As announced earlier in the week, we decided to do one more weekly check-in! We thought everyone would appreciate an extra week of prizes before we announce the final results. Some final reminders for the rest of the competition:

  • Prizes for this week are starting to be awarded TODAY! It may take a while for everyone to receive their prizes, so please wait a few days before e-mailing support@munzee.com about Week 4 prizes.
  • Water Balloons and Flags will leave the map at August 9 at 23:59 MHQ.
    • You can check CuppaZee’s Camps Leaderboard to track your camp’s performance until this time. Then, the leaderboard will be closed as it needs some time to catch up with all the capture data and finish calculating all the point values.
  • Final results will be announced on August 11. These results will take the ENTIRE competition period into account, not just the period after this check-in.

Now that we’ve got all of that out the way, it’s time to announce the results for the past week! Congratulations to Camp FrEEZ for keeping its place at the top!

We’d also like to congratulate Camp QRantine for attaining the 2nd Place spot! It’s been a pretty fierce competition so we’re excited to see how it all turns out next week! Just a few more days to get your captures in!

Lastly, as this competition draws to a close, you might want a souvenir to commemorate the fun times that were had. Pick one up in the Camp Munzee Collection HERE! Among all the camp gear, you’ll also find our newest furry friend!

Munzee on!

A NEW Camp Critter To Love!

If you’re jealous of August MunzPak recipients because of the cute Camp Critters, but aren’t ready to commit to a MunzPak, or if you just want to surround yourself with as many cuddly creatures as possible, this is the option for you!

Bear Cub Camp Critter

While moose, foxes, and squirrels are definitely of the woodland realm, we couldn’t forget the most famous forest resident of all — the bear! Or in this case, the bear cub! If you’d like to make it yours, it is available at the Freeze Tag Online Store as an individual product! That’s right, you can now have up to four different Camp Critter types bouncing around the map!

This new temporary POB (tPOB) will be available for purchase for $5 from now until 12:00 MHQ on Monday Aug 17th. Each player can purchase up to two Bear Cubs total.

Like the other Camp Critters, the Bear Cub is a temporary POB. Similar to the Baby Squirrel, it will bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. It will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on Sept 30, when it will be automatically archived on your account. If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

  • Deploy: 500 points
  • Capture: 200 points
  • CapOn: 100 points

This cute little critter just loves to play! Tag, Hide-and-Seek, Duck Duck Goose — you name it! Enjoy playing with it now, while it’s still small and can’t knock you over with its sheer strength! It scampers to the following:

  • Treehouse
  • Greenie
  • Earth Mystery
  • Water Mystery
  • Skyland
  • All Virtual Colors
  • Air Mystery
  • Campground Places

Like the other Camp Critters, it will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Bear Cub on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Bear Cub visits you. However, Bear Cubs are non-blastable. They will be attracted to either Physical Magnets or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. You can access Bear Cubs under the “Only Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

All players who purchase a Bear Cub will also receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Capturing the Bear Cub will contribute progress towards the Camp Critters overall capture badge line as well! Check out the previous post about Camp Critters if you’d like a preview!

August 2020 MunzPak Contents Revealed!

In the Spring we had cute and colorful Baby Animals School Supplies to collect, but since everyone’s still away at Camp Munzee, we thought you’d be more in the mood to collect some cute camping gear-themed badges! Read on to find out more! For this month, each Pak includes a NEW Camp Critters Munzee, which is a temporary Player Owned Bouncer! We’re very excited to share these three new types with you. You can find a breakdown below!

MunzPak is a monthly subscription service that delivers munzees directly to your door! Each of our three MunzPak options contain a variety of munzees, including some new items that you won’t be able to find anywhere else! The three different types of MunzPaks that you can subscribe to each month are as follows:

  • Physical MunzPak features blocks of generic stickers and pre-coded stickers including brand new munzees which can only be purchased through the subscription service. $~25 value for $15 each month.
  • Virtual MunzPak features a variety of virtual munzees that are automatically added to your account each month such as Destination Munzees, Jewels, and more. $~40 value for $25 each month.
  • Hybrid MunzPak is the best of both worlds! Get both physical and virtual munzees such as Places Munzees, Magnets, and more. $~30 value for $20.01 each month.

Never subscribed to MunzPak before? If this is your first month subscribing, you’ll have the chance to earn one-time badges for each type of Pak! All you have to do is stop by the Freeze Tag Online Store and subscribe today!

The August MunzPaks will contain the items listed below, effective as of 00:01 MHQ time on August 1. Please note that any purchases made before then will be for the July MunzPak, which contains different items.

Camp Critters

Like the Aussie Animals, these Camp Critters are temporary POBs. Unlike Aussie Animals, they bounce to either physical or virtual munzees, depending on the MunzPak you purchased. They will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on September 30, when they will be automatically archived on your account.

  • Deploy: 500 points
  • Capture: 200 points
  • CapOn: 100 points

Baby Moose Camp Critters Munzee
Physical MunzPak

His antlers may be little more than stumps at the moment, but don’t underestimate his defense! A sharp kick with his tiny hooves can be devastating due to the small surface area! This hard-headed Camp Critter gallops to the following:

  • Treehouse
  • Greenie
  • Earth Mystery
  • Water Mystery

Baby Fox Camp Critters Munzee
Virtual MunzPak

You’ll see this critter’s tail before anything else! Although it’s admired for its beautiful, glossy red fur, it is quite shy. But its shyness doesn’t stop it from sneaking around to get what it wants! This wily Camp Critter scurries to the following:

  • Skyland
  • All Virtual Colors
  • Air Mystery
  • Campground Places

Baby Squirrel Camp Critters Munzee
Hybrid MunzPak

Its cute, innocent expression contrasts with its dragon-like hoarding tendencies! No nut, seed, or shiny thing is safe! Unfortunately, it also tends to forget where its treasures are hidden. This precocious Camp Critter Munzee climbs to the following:

  • Treehouse
  • Greenie
  • Earth Mystery
  • Water Mystery
  • Skyland
  • All Virtual Colors
  • Air Mystery
  • Campground Places

Camp Critters will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Camp Critter on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Camp Critter visits you. In virtual form, Camp Critters will be non-blastable. They will be attracted to Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Camp Critters under the “All Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

All players who purchase a MunzPak (which will automatically deploy the respective Camp Critter) will also receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Lastly, captures of these Camp Critters will contribute to progress towards its own Camp Critters badge line. These are the camping gear-themed badges we mentioned at the start of this post. You can sneak a peek at the first of these new badges below!

Forest Flashlight- Capture 1 Camp Critter of any type.

Remember these temporary POBs will only be available for capture until the end of September, so cap as many as you can and keep them bouncing!

Munzee on!

ZeeOps- Operation: Training Camp (August 2020)

Agents, we’d like to commend you for a job well done last month! The recon missions all went smoothly and we have a wealth of information to analyze. As we are still in the planning stages for our next steps, we determined that this would be the perfect opportunity for you all to brush up on old skills — after all, there’s always room for improvement! This month, we’ll be sending you to our training camps to revive that muscle memory. Unlike the silhouettes depicted in the badge, make sure to maintain your distance from others, even other agents, as the missions and your health may be compromised.

This month’s missions focus on the humble greenie and virtual, the backbone of all our technology. However, to keep the training from being too bland, we’ve also included RUMs, Ice Mysteries, Evolutions, Zodiacs, and POBs in the missions as well. For your efforts you can a Jellyfish or Turtle, among other rewards, depending on the Operation that you choose. Once deployed and fully grown, they can travel the world and be helpful in making connections with other agents. Like last month, we’ve placed the full mission details on pages that are only accessible with your agent login — the link is provided below.

August 2020 ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You will only have until August 31st at 23:59 MHQ to complete this month’s Operations. Only 2 Operation types are available for this month- the Basic Op (3 days) and the Advanced Op (7 days).

You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Remember that if you hit a snag at any point in your Operation you can use the Mission Mulligan feature to keep going!

By completing any Operation this month you’ll earn the “Operation: Training Camp” badge.

This month’s Missions are found at https://www.munzee.com/ops/tasks

To start new Ops and view this month’s rewards please visit https://www.munzee.com/ops/new

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.

August QRewzdays Schedule

Our birthday month may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end. Those of you who are able to safely munzee outside may find some satisfaction and purpose in a little map maintenance. After all, you never know when a new Munzee player will emerge near you! As always, everything we do may be subject to change. Remember to follow your local guidelines and Stay Home if required.

It’s time to mark your calendars for August QRewzdays to earn some QRewzee points! We’ve got a nice sprinkling of them throughout the month, so there’s likely a day that works for you! It’s the two non-clan days as usual and then all the multiples of 3 and 5 so it’s easy to remember!

The August QRewzdays are as follows:

  • August 1 at 00:01 MHQ time through August 3rd at 23:59 MHQ time,
  • The following dates beginning at 00:01 MHQ time until 23:59 MHQ time on the same day: August 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 21, 24, 25, 27, 30

Remember that QRew and ZeeQRew status can be earned or revoked at 00:01 MHQ time on the 1st and 15th, so plan accordingly if you want to achieve or retain either title!

Munzee on!

P.S. Are you looking for the Flat Friends schedule? Remember that last month, we announced that the Forever Flat schedule is now in effect! So there’s no schedule to memorize, Flat Friends will always be on the map!

Camp Competition Week 3

It’s time for another weekly check-in! We’re now in the home stretch, but we still wanted to give you some reminders as you continue Camp Munzee gameplay!

By now you should be familiar with CuppaZee’s Camps Leaderboard — but we don’t mind linking to it again! Maybe the only time you check it is when you read through this post!

Active players on ALL teams will receive prizes each week! Prizes for the previous week were awarded on Monday. If you were active (i.e. captured a munzee) during Week 2 and did not receive a prize (check your Item History on the Credits page), please e-mail support@munzee.com. Prizes for this week are starting to be awarded TODAY! It may take a while for everyone to receive their prizes, so please wait a few days before e-mailing Support about Week 3 prizes.

As we stated in the original blog post, the top team at the final check-in will receive double points on certain Myth captures for a whole month! We’re also planning to award additional prizes, but you’ll just have to wait and see!

Now that we’ve got all of that out the way, it’s time to announce the results for the past week! Congratulations to Camp FrEEZ for keeping its place at the top!

We’d also like to congratulate Camp Cap-A-Lot for attaining the 2nd Place spot! The point differences between the camps are smaller than the previous weeks, which shows that all camps are working hard and that you have to fight to keep your spot! Just one more week left — keep up the good work!

Lastly, if you missed our quick social post last week, we just wanted to let you know that you can purchase Camp Personal Tags in the store! You can find them in the Camp Munzee Collection HERE!

Munzee on!
