Munzee Celebrates Origami Day with All New Specials!

Have you noticed the Flat Friends have been playing with arts and crafts?!

While we’ve been mentioning the holiday season for a little while now, one special day that you might not have anticipated us celebrating happens to be the reason for our next specials! In honor of November 11th being Origami Day, we have a new set of bouncing specials that have started hitting the map!

You may have noticed the Flats’ arts and crafts project bouncing around the map already, but there are four types of the virtual MOBs. The Origami specials will be on the map from now until November 18th at 23:59 MHQ time to celebrate World Origami Day.

Origami Day celebrates the wonder of paper folding, both an exciting and restorative form of art. One of our 4 icons features an origami crane, an image symbolic of hope and healing through hardship. Folding 1,000 origami cranes is traditionally believed to grant one wish. Today these beliefs filter into charities revolving around this recognized symbol of hope. We’re launching these specials in accordance with this message, as well as to celebrate the beauty and fun of paper folding!

Origami Details

There will be 1,111 Origami specials (approximately 278 of each type) bouncing around the map. These specials will feature 4 virtual MOBs that will land on Virtuals and specific Flat Friends Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. If you checked out the November Flat Friends schedule, you might have noticed that Flat Friends will be active throughout the entire duration of these specials.

The 4 specials include:

  • Origami Crane, lands on Flat Robs and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Lily, lands on Flat Lous and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Boat, lands on Flat Matts and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Butterfly, lands on Flat Hammocks and all colors of virtuals (277 of these specials)

The points* distribution for these specials will be the same for all 4:

  • Capture: 111 points
  • CapOn (Host): 111 points

You can access these specials by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The Origami specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtuals.

Badges

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Origami specials. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Wishful Wrappings– Capture at least one of any type of Origami Special

We hope you’re ready to celebrate the wonders of origami with us!

Munzee on!

 

*During the initial testing of these new types some players may have seen double points on these captures, but this issue has been resolved. All Origami special captures will be worth 111 points.

Countdown To Christmas With a Munzee Advent Calendar!

With Halloween behind us, it’s safe to say that the holiday season is officially upon us! Though last year we waited until Cyber Munzday to put our 2018 Advent Calendars on sale, we couldn’t resist spreading some seasonal cheer early this year! That means that you’ll be able to purchase your 2019 Advent Calendars from now through November 18th at 10:00 MHQ in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

Like our previous advent-style products, this year’s calendar will delight players with one Munzee-themed reward each day leading up to Christmas. There is a notable difference in this year’s Calendar though! The Advent Calendar for 2019 is primarily physical and will be shipped to you after you have purchased it. Due to shipping times varying that means some of you will receive your calendar before others. In the Christmas spirit we suggest holding off on deploying these until their scheduled day, but you will be able to see the calendar in it’s entirety when you receive it. You know what they say though, good things come to those who wait!

This collection of 25 physical munzees is worth more than $45 and will be available for $25 in the FT Store! If you joined in on the fun last year you know there might be some other surprises as well, but this is a great deal on it’s own!

Join us in starting the holiday season off early with 25 days of joyous surprises! Are you ready to countdown to Christmas?

Munzee on!

Munzee Toolkit Munzday

Munzee Toolkit MunzDay: Vike91

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help! This week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes from Vike91!

The week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes to us from Vike91, who hails from Kajaani, Finland. In the past year and a half, Vike91 has amassed over 650,000 points thanks to his clever Munzee strategies. Though considered a fairly new player, Vike91 has quickly accumulated quite an extensive Munzee Toolkit! Read on to discover all the goodies he packs away!

Vike91 Toolkit

First, I have a cheap jig/lure case (got it for 4 dollars in a fishing store). The advantage of this case is it has modifiable compartments.

My case contains the following:

  • Foldable scissors for cutting out too big munzees, very handy! I got them on eBay for 1 dollar a piece. (The toolkit only includes one pair of scissors, the other is just for full display)
  • A whistle for emergencies
  • 2 Personal Munzees whenever I meet another Munzee player (I wish my area had more)
  • 2 coins
  • A Munzee badge
  • A small tin box to carry with at all times, with self-printed munzees (maybe I should throw in some generics as well for QRew repair)
  • And of course, self-adhesive munzees!

I have arranged all the munzees by type/type group/size, I know exactly where each type is. There are over 600 self-adhesive munzee stickers in the case.

First column has generic and self-printed munzees.

Second column includes all the 1×2 inch sized munzees (Horoscopes, Camo Greenies)

Third column includes 2×1 specials (RUMs, Prize Wheels, Motels, Hotels, Shamrocks, and Jewels) and Evos.

Fourth column has special and Camo Greenies.

Fifth one has 1×1 sized specials (Seasonals, Jewels, Mysteries, Bowling), oversized stickers, coins/badge and Horoscopes.

Sixth one includes the over-over-oversized Mystery sticker and my Geocaching-related stickers. It also holds almost all the small things, like Personals.

I also have a backpack where I pack this box in, and just in case, I pack a power bank with me so I don’t run out of power. When charging, I often leave the power bank in the backpack, rig the cable through a hole in backpack and finally, connect it to my phone. I have been considering to get a retractable wheel charging cable for this purpose.

Finland has COLD winters, so I also carry a portable blowtorch with me to defrost frozen surfaces for better stick.

I chose all of those items, because I feel those are the most necessary items to play Munzee for me.

Maybe I have too many stickers… maybe I should go deploy, deploy, and deploy some more. Deploy… they will come (or at least they say so)…

Share Your Kit!

If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at iloveyou@munzee.com with the subject “Munzee Toolkit.” Make sure to include:

  • Your username and where you are from.
  • A few high quality photos.
  • A list of what each item is and how you use it.
  • What made you decide to use those items.
  • Any other relevant details.

Please feel free to include as much information about your gameplay as you wish to share! We want to see your creativity and learn how you play, so show us what you’ve got! And for Munzee tips and tricks, you can always check out our Help Guide articles!

A big Munzee thank you to Vike91 for sharing his Munzee Toolkit! You can thank him for sharing by deploying in his town of Kajaani, Finland!

Munzee on!

November MunzPak Contents Revealed!

Spooky season is quickly turning into the holiday season, as we find ourselves reaching November. That means it’s time for another month of  MunzPak subscription goodies! This month you can find yourself stocking up on a variety of munzees, including Elemental Mysteries, Flat Friends, Jewels, the all new Condo Munzee, the all new Treehouse Munzee, and the updated Bowling Munzee (more information below!) depending on which MunzPak you order!

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.

Bowling Munzee Update!

With this month’s Physical MunzPak containing 5 Bowling Munzees, we decided it was the perfect time to update this Gaming Munzee. There are now several gameplay updates for the Bowling Munzee, changing both points and landing pads. You can find full information about the Bowling Ball Munzee on the updated blog and Help Guide.

The main changes include an update in points, as well as the fact that capturing a Bowling Ball Munzee will now set off Virtual scatters instead of physical ones. Since the first and second rolls are owned by system accounts, much like the Feather Munzee scatter, they will no longer be worth any CapOn points. These changes went into effect on November 1 at 00:01 MHQ time.

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

Bowling Ball Munzee Details

UPDATE: This blog was originally posted in November 2018. As of November 2019, the Bowling Ball Munzee has been updated,  reflected by the information below. You can find complete information about all Gaming Munzees on the Help Guide. 

As promised, we have the details for the ALL NEW Bowling Ball Munzee! This addition to the Gaming Munzees is sure to knock a few pins loose! The Bowling Ball point system is based on ten-pin bowling, and you will have a chance to earn more points based on how many “pins” you “knock down.”

BASIC GAMEPLAY:

Bowling Ball Munzee:

Are you ready to play this classic game the Munzee way? Capturing a Bowling Ball will award you 25 points to start. The Bowling Ball Munzee will then initiate a mini-game (within a game, within a game!) for more points. Capturing a Bowling Ball Munzee will lead to a new virtual munzee called “Bowling – 1st Roll” being scattered to a location within 750 ft. You will be able to see the second stage (1st Roll) only after stage one (Bowling Ball) is captured. The scattered munzees will remain active for 1 hour or until captured from within a 150ft distance. 

1st Roll Munzee:

Capturing the 1st Roll Munzee, released after Capturing the Bowling Ball, will provide different options for players. If you earn a STRIKE, you will be awarded 300 points, and the game will be done. You also have the opportunity to earn anywhere between 1-9 points (one for each pin “knocked” down), and the game will advance to a virtual “2nd Roll,” which will be scattered within 500ft.

2nd Roll Munzee:

A 2nd Roll Munzee will be made available to players who have capped a Bowling Ball and a 1st Roll and did not earn a Strike on the 1st Roll. When the 2nd Roll Munzee is captured, players will either earn a SPARE and be awarded 150 points, or they will earn between 10-80 points based on number of pins “knocked” down. Either way, this will conclude the game!

POINT BREAKDOWN:

Bowling Ball Munzee

  • Deploy: 50 points
  • Capture: 25 points
  • CapOn: 20 points

1st Roll Munzee

STRIKE!

300 points 

-or-

SO CLOSE

1-9 points 

2nd Roll Munzee

SPARE!

150 points

-or-

GAME OVER!

10-80 points 

The first Bowling Ball will be a physical munzee, while the 1st Roll and 2nd Roll will both be virtual scatters. The Bowling Ball has a standard deploy radius. The scattered munzees will remain active for 1 hour or until captured from within a 150ft (45.72 m) distance. 

Additionally there are a number of different badges you can earn based on capturing the Bowling Ball Munzees, earning Strikes, and earning Spares. Check out the first of each badge line here:

Line up your shot, and Munzee on!
