Announcing Greenie Capture Badges!

We’re continuing this Spring’s theme of going green! We’re excited to announce new badges for capturing good ole’ greenies. Despite being the cornerstone of the game, this is actually the first line of badges we have released for strictly capturing Generic Munzees (AKA Greenies). How crazy is that? Better late than never right?

Green Gamer Lv 1- Capture 100 Generic Munzees AKA Greenies.

This new line of badges is retroactive, so those of you who have been capping these stickers for the better part of a decade can bask in the glory. You’ll only be able to see the requirements of one badge at a time until you earn it, but we think some of the more experienced players will be pleasantly surprised at the challenges this presents. The badges are now live and available to earn.

Please note that capturing Recycle Munzees will not count toward these badges, only active Greenies.

With these new Greenie capture badges, a new update, a new scanner and some (old) stickers on sale, help out your fellow players and deploy some Greenies too!

Good luck in your adventures and Munzee on!

Updated Scanner; Scratch and Dent Stickers

A long time ago in a place far, far away (or about 4 years ago about 3 miles from our current office), a grave mistake was made. In an effort to advance the game, generic munzee stickers were created using a new method. This method failed, however, leaving behind what became known as the Munzee Wallpaper. Thousands of stickers only to be used as decoration and as a reminder of a dark time. Or so we thought…

Ok. That may have been a bit dramatic. A few years ago, we created stickers that, due to technology at the time, were rendered unscannable. However, after a few updates to scanners and advancements in smartphone cameras, they can be used in the field.

This morning, we released an updated version of the app with a new scanner with improved recognition of damaged codes. This means that codes that may have previously been unscannable due to parts damaged or missing should be scannable now. (There are limits to how much reconstruction the scanner can do.) Because of this, we are releasing the “Munzee Wallpaper” stickers as “Scratch and Dent” stickers for purchase in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

These “Scratch and Dent” stickers are available now in packs of 20 stickers for $1.25. While we have thoroughly tested these stickers for scannability, you may have to be a bit more patient while capping and deploying in some cases.

Get these stickers while you can, and Munzee on!

Flat Day The 13th Pt II Specials

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to cap… it’s FLAT DAY THE 13TH: PART II- FLAT MATT’S REVENGE!

This Friday is a Friday the 13th so we wanted to celebrate with a sequel to last year’s Flat Day The 13th special. Starting at 00:01 MHQ on April 13th Masked Flat Matts will begin bouncing around the map until April 15th at 23:59 MHQ. Since Flat Matt was revealed as the true villain last Flat Day The 13th he’s come to exact his revenge! Flinging his lasso of tape, Flat Matt is vandalizing Greenies all across the world- it’s up to you and Flat Rob to stop him!

Although Flat Matt is usually a virtual game piece, this masked version of him bounces on greenies like other specials. 1,313 Masked Flat Matts will jump on Greenies every 6 hours or when capped. When a Masked Flat Matt is capped three “Meanie” specials will scatter to greenies within a 1/2 mile of the area. The greenies will be “Taped” for 2 hours or when capped.

Masked Flat Matts will be attracted to Munzee Magnets so be sure to stock up on those in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

You CAN capture these specials on your own greenies.

Points:

Masked Flat Matt:
31 Capture Points
13 Cap On Points

Meanie- 3 scatter when Masked Flat Matt is capped
13 Capture Points
13 Cap On Points

You’ll have the chance to earn the “Sticky Situation” badge for capturing a Masked Flat Matt special. Rumor is you might be able to earn a secret second badge too… be sure to cap as many Masked Flat Matts AND Meanies as you can…

Flat Day The 13th captures will also count toward the Specials Capture badges.

To continue the celebration of Flat Day The 13th we will also have Flat Robs and Flat Matts on sale for 13% off in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting Friday at 00:01 MHQ. A limited number of Masked Flat Matt Personal Tags, as well as other Friday the 13th deals, are currently available in the Freeze Tag online store, located HERE.

On this Friday the 13th we wish you all good luck and happy hunting. Munzee on!

Earth Day Charity Special Update

Howdy!

First off, we would like to thank you for your support of our Earth Day Charity Special. We love seeing players interact and help each other for deployments and captures, and it’s even better when it’s for a good cause.

Earth Day Evolutions will leave the Freeze Tag Online Store on Monday, April 9th at 10:00 MHQ time. This is to ensure that, if deployed immediately, they will be fully evolved by the time they leave the map so you get the most out of them. So if you haven’t purchased any Earth Day Evolutions yet, you still have time! Don’t forget there are badges for capping AND deploying these specials!

Also, keep an eye on the blog next week for more information about what charity we will be donating to.

Thanks again for being such a great community!

Munzee on!

MunzPaks are back!

Howdy!

We’ve been working on updates to our MunzPak subscription services, and we’re happy to announce that MunzPaks are once again available RIGHT NOW! We’ve made a couple of changes that we think you will enjoy:

  • There are now 3 MunzPaks to choose from: Physical MunzPak, Hybrid MunzPak, and Virtual MunzPak.
  • MunzPak subscriptions are now handled through the Freeze Tag Online Store.
  • The Physical MunzPak is re-launching with a new line of munzees!

New MunzPaks

Along with the Physical and Virtual MunzPaks that you know and love, we’re introducing a new Hybrid MunzPak that combines the best of the physical and virtual Munzee gameplay. The Physical and Virtual MunzPaks will retain their subscription prices of $15 and $25, respectively. The new Hybrid MunzPak will include physical and virtual game items and credits for $20.01. The April MunzPaks include the following:

Physical MunzPak

  • 5 New Dog Chinese Zodiac Munzees (keep reading for more info)
  • 5 Aries Zodiac Munzees
  • 5 Taurus Zodiac Munzees
  • 35 Micro Generic Munzees

Hybrid MunzPak

  • 20 Micro Generic Munzees
  • 1 Topaz Munzee Credit
  • 1 Pink Diamond Munzee Credit
  • 4 MVMs
  • 4 Virtual Colors
  • 1 Physical Munzee Magnet
  • 1 Virtual Munzee Magnet
  • 1 Blast Capture

Virtual MunzPak

  • 1 Carrot Evolution Munzee
  • 1 Peas Evolution Munzee
  • 1 Horse Evolution Munzee
  • 1 Eggs Evolution Munzee
  • 1 Family Evolution Munzee

You can find all three new MunzPaks in the Freeze Tag Online Store here. When you are viewing the MunzPaks, you have the option of subscribing or making a one time purchase for a fee.

If you subscribe to any (or all) of the MunzPaks, you will be provided a link to an account dashboard where you can manage your subscriptions, see your delivery schedule, view and edit your billing information, and see your purchase history.

You will be billed monthly on your delivery date with one small change. Now, virtual and credit items will be applied to your account immediately after purchase instead of at midnight MHQ time the following day.

One time purchases of MunzPaks will result in being charged the minimum values of each MunzPak:

  • Physical MunzPak: $25
  • Hybrid MunzPak: $30
  • Virtual MunzPak: $40

We hope you enjoy the new changes to MunzPak! Without further ado, we’re happy to introduce the new Chinese Zodiac Munzee series!

The Chinese Zodiacs will work similarly to the Western Zodiacs in that they will be worth double points when capped and deployed during specific times. Instead of being worth double points during certain days/months, they will be worth double points during their corresponding days (00:01-23:59 MHQ time).

  • Dog: Friday
  • Pig: Tuesday
  • Rat: Thursday
  • Ox: Saturday
  • Tiger: Saturday
  • Rabit: Friday
  • Dragon: Tuesday
  • Snake: Friday
  • Horse: Wednesday
  • Goat: Monday
  • Monkey: Sunday
  • Rooster: Wednesday

We are beginning with the Dog Zodiac Munzee and will release a new Chinese Zodiac every month through the Physical MunzPak subscription. Each Chinese Zodiac Munzee is worth 20 points for Deploy, Capture, and CapOn. Those numbers double to 40 points during each Zodiacs’ specific day.

Dog Chinese Zodiac Icon

You will earn a badge for capping or deploying a Chinese Zodiac Munzee. Here is the badge for the Dog Chinese Zodiac:

Dog Chinese Zodiac Badge

We hope you enjoy the changes we’ve made to MunzPak and the new Chinese Zodiac Munzees! Be sure to join the monthly subscription to save money from the one-time purchase option.

Munzee on!

Updated Recycle Badges!

Just in time for this month’s Clan Wars, we’re excited to announce new badges for Capturing Recycle Munzees!

This is an extension of the current Recycle line, which includes badges for capturing 1, 50, and 100 Recycle Icons. We are adding badges for capturing 500, 1,000, 2,500, and 5,000 Recycle Icons, which will be available starting at 00:01 MHQ time on April 3rd.

These badges ARE retroactive, but will be hidden until you earn them.

As a quick reminder, Recycle Icons appear on certain munzees that haven’t been capped in 365 days. This is a “one and done” special icon. Once the icon is capped, the Munzee returns to its normal icon. In other words this is a race for you to be first in your area to get to the icon. You CAN capture this icon on munzees that you have capped before. You CANNOT capture this icon on your own munzees. The affected munzees are:

  • Greenies
  • All Physical Jewels
  • All Physical Clan Weapons
  • Physical Mysteries
  • Premium Munzees

Recycle Icons will be on the map from 00:01 MHQ Time on Tuesday, April 3rd through 23:59 MHQ time on Monday, April 30th.

Good luck, grow the map and go green!

ZeeOps: April 2018 Missions

Agents, with the battle between The First Clan and The Rising Sons looming, it seems everyone is choosing allegiances. Although ZeeOps HQ is firmly a neutral party, it’s important we keep track of other possible factions. Look into the Authorized Reseller group known as R.U.M. for any possible collusion.

More MunzPak Changes

At the end of February, we announced that we would be making some changes to the Physical MunzPak. We haven’t forgotten about the Physical MunzPak even though we’ve had to entirely skip the month of March. However, the physical MunzPak WILL return in April. We are also making some changes to the Virtual MunzPak.

While we can’t go into all of the details quite yet, there are some things you need to know:

  • All current Virtual MunzPak subscriptions will end at 23:59:59 MHQ Time on March 31st.
  • Both MunzPaks will be available again early next week.
  • All the changes will be worth the wait (in our humble opinion)

We also have another surprise or two that we will announce early next week, so keep an eye on the blog!

Thanks for your support and understanding.

Munzee on!

Earth Day Charity Fundraiser Special!

April 22nd is Earth Day, and we’re getting in on the celebration a little early with our newest charity special fundraiser! These “colorful” specials will help you temporarily grow the Munzee map and help make the real world a greener, healthier place! A portion of the funds raised from this campaign will be donated to an Earth Day charity to be announced at a later date.

Beginning now (10:00 MHQ Time on Thursday, March 29th), virtual Earth Day Evolution Munzees are available for purchase for $1/each (limit 50 per account) in the Freeze Tag Online Store. These Evolution Munzees have three stages: Seed, Seedling, and Tree.

We want to see these trees in full bloom by Earth Day, so these will work a little different than usual Evos. Unlike other Evolution Munzees, the Seed and Seedling stages will evolve after 12 days. So if you deploy your Earth Day Evolution Munzee TODAY it will be fully evolved in time for Earth Day on April 22nd.

The points for the Earth Day Evolution Munzees are as follows:

  • Deploy: 25
  • Capture: 15, 20, and 25 respectively based on evolution stage
  • CapOn: 10, 15, and 20 respectively based on evolution stage

These munzees have a 300ft capture radius and are blastable. They are affected by all other types and can be placed 50ft from other players’ munzees and 150ft from your own munzees.

There are six badges that can be earned for this special:

  • Green Gardner – Deploy 1 Earth Day Evolution Munzee
  • Evergreen Artist – Deploy 5 Earth Day Evolution Munzees
  • Colorful Capture: Seed – Capture 1 Earth Day Evolution Seed Munzee
  • Colorful Capture: Seedling – Capture 1 Earth Day Evolution Seedling Munzee
  • Colorful Capture: Tree – Capture 1 Earth Day Evolution Tree Munzee
  • Colorful Capping! – Capture at least 1 of each Earth Day Evolution Munzee Stage

This special will end at 23:59 MHQ time on May 13th, and all deploys will be archived regardless of the stage they have reached.


We also have a limited number of Earth Day Charity Special Personal Munzees available.

These Personals are metal dog tags and are priced at $10/each.


In connection with the Go Green events happening all throughout the month, we also wanted to add another activity to join in the fun. To coincide with the “colorful” crayon designs of these icons and badges, we’re releasing PDF coloring book pages of the designs. We want to see your artistic interpretation so send pictures of your finished work to iloveyou@munzee.com and we’ll periodically share some of our favorites. Bring copies to your Go Green events and showcase how colorful your group of players is!

You can download the PDFs of the pages HERE, HERE, and HERE!

We hope you enjoy this special!

Munzee on and Go Green!
