Complete the Funfinity Stone Set with Tsitriin!

Orange is considered an unusual color by some (nothing rhymes with it!), but we think it combines the fierceness of red and the joyfulness of yellow perfectly! It’s also found a lot in nature, so the beauty of this color is not lost on us! Like the past stones, this sunset-colored gem was borrowed from our sister app WallaBee! Joining the other Funfinity Stones, please welcome the Tsitriin!

You can shop the whole collection of Funfinity Stones HERE!

These Player Owned Bouncers (POB) resemble the Jewel Munzees, which they also bounce to! The Tsitriin is available NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Be sure to shop fast, because these Funfinity Stones will leave the store at 12:00 MHQ on December 2! Like the other Funfinity Stones, players can purchase a Tsitriin for $10. No upgrade ability is available. In celebration of Cyber Munzday ALL PREVIOUS FUNFINITY STONES will also be available during this time!

Tsitriin Details

Tsitriin joins the current line of Pouch Creatures as a virtual munzee that will bounce to all Virtual Colors, Air Mystery, Citrine, and Skyland Munzees every 6 hours or when capped.

It will have the same point values as the other Funfinity Stones:

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 250 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 200 points

Tsitriin will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Tsitriin on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Tsitriin visits you. It will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on all 4 of its landing pads. You can access Tsitriin under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Pouch Creatures” filters.

New Badges!

Deploying an Tsitriin will earn you the following badge:

If you’ve deployed ALL the Funfinity Stones, you’ll receive a very special Funfinity Bootlet badge as well!

Additionally, any Tsitriin captures will help you progress in both the Unique Funfinity Stone Capture badge line and the Pouch Creature Capture badge line. As a reminder, you can see the first of each of these badge lines below:

Meet Vikerkaar Somewhere Over The Rainbow!

We’re also excited to release a brand new Team Owned Bouncer (TOB) and AlternaMyth for the FT Staff! Say hello to the Rainbow Funfinity Stone Vikerkaar!

Vikerkaar joins the current line of Pouch Creatures that will bounce to the following Munzees every 6 hours or when capped.

    • Earth Mystery
    • Fire Mystery
    • Air Mystery
    • Diamond
    • Ruby
    • Aquamarine
    • Topaz
    • Pink Diamond
    • Virtual Sapphire
    • Virtual Citrine
    • Virtual Onyx
    • Virtual Amethyst
    • Virtual Emerald

As a TOB there will be a different point value than the other Funfinity Stones:

  • Deploy: 50 Points
  • Capture: 500 Points
  • CapOn: 50 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Remember this ultra rare munzee is only owned by members of the Freeze Tag team, so there are very few of them to be found. Vikerkaar will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Vikerkaar on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Vikerkaar visits you. It will be not be attracted to magnets. You can access Vikerkaar under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Pouch Creatures” filters.

With the addition of Vikerkaar, there is also a new badge for capturing at least one of each Funfinity Stone!

Funfinity Stone Collector- Capture at least one of each of the 11 Funfinity Stone Pouch Creatures.

A Challenger to Cyborg Santa Has Appeared + Cyber Munzday Info!

As we mentioned in our posts yesterday on social media, we’re still enjoying a break from our usual duties today (hopefully you are too) — so this is some pre-scheduled programming! If you’re jealous of Holiday Card Collectors Club members because of the super-cool Cyborg Santa, but aren’t ready for the commitment, or if you just enjoy collecting robot toys, we’ve got an option for you! We’ve also got some info on the promotions we’re planning for Cyber Munzday, so make sure to read all the way to the end!

Cybersaurus Rex

Our solution to deliver Christmas presents in a contactless manner all around the world was a good one — build an army of Cyborg Santas! But an enterprising elf — who may or may not have marathoned the entire Jurassic Park film franchise — applied the same technology to some T-rex prototypes, not knowing that part of their AI had already been programmed to mimic real T-rex behaviors! If you’d like to take a Cybersaurus Rex off our hands, it is available at the Freeze Tag Online Store as an individual product!

This new temporary POB (tPOB) will be available for purchase for $5 ONLY on Monday Nov 30th — Cyber Munzday! These are limited to 1 per player.

Like the Cyborg Santa, the Cybersaurus Rex is a temporary POB. It will bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. It will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31, 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: 750 points
  • Capture: 300 points
  • CapOn: 150 points

This fierce foe is ready to fight! He loves the sound of wrapping paper being ripped up and tearing silky gift ribbons to shreds! Stop the Cybersaurus Rex in his tracks at the following munzee types:

The Cybersaurus Rex will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Cybersaurus Rex on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Cybersaurus Rex visits you. However, Cybersaurus Rexes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to either Physical Magnets or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. You can access Cybersaurus Rexes under the “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.

Badges

All players who purchase a Cybersaurus Rex will also receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

We hope you enjoy this newest invention from the MHQ Workshop!

Cyber Munzday

As noted above, the Cybersaurus Rex tPOB will be available starting at 00:01 MHQ on Nov 30th, which is Cyber Munzday!

We’ve also got 2 other promotions you may be interested in:

If you enjoy the physical game, you can save 20% on any generic stickers in this collection: https://store.freezetag.com/collections/generic-stickers. Please note that the sale starts on Cyber Munzday, NOT today.

If you enjoy expressing your love of Munzee via fashion, you can get 500 Free Zeds with Apparel Purchases from this collection: https://store.freezetag.com/collections/apparel. Please note that you MUST add the Zeds to cart for them to be awarded.

Munzee on!

November 2020 GOTM Winners + December POTM Requirements!

This month has been a bit all over the place, but as it’s sandwiched between Halloween and Christmas, perhaps November was doomed from the start to be a strange transitional period.

For those looking forward to Christmas, we started off strong with the MunzPaks, which include the very popular Christmas Critters! We also featured a past Christmas Event in an amazingly detailed Event Spotlight by denali0407! Lastly, we released the Holiday Card Collectors Club, which seems to be well-received so far! We have some more things related to Christmas in the works, so be on the lookout!

For those who wish it was still Halloween, we released the popular Kill Them With Kindness Greeting Card and had a double points day to go along with it!

As for non-holiday related updates, we announced the results of our Zeecret Agent Competition, released 3 more nomads, and a much-requested new Places munzee, the Drink Depot!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the November Garden of the Month (GOTM), give a reminder for November Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for December POTM! The badges for November GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early December, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

November GOTM

As mentioned above, we’re caught between Halloween and Christmas, so the first garden we chose reflects this split. The second garden was chosen as it looks like the perfect Christmas gift for a young child! Remember that all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award the Claire’s Candy Canes Garden, designed by Jeffeth, and the Teddy Bear Garden, designed by CoalCracker7, as our winning November GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Claire’s Candy Canes by Jeffeth in Ontario, Canada

We love the way Jeffeth expanded on the idea of Candy Cane gardens into other special days! Don’t forget that you can get a slightly larger Candy Cane garden deployed at your Christmas Event: https://www.munzeeblog.com/get-your-christmas-greetings-done-early-with-this-new-card/

Jeffeth shared his thoughts behind the design:

A garden made for my wife, who always enjoys getting into the Christmas spirit early. 🙂

It was designed specifically as a November garden. The first candy cane represents veterans day/remembrance day held in November, the second has a lot of orange in reminder of Halloween which just passed, and the third shows the original candy cane and Christmas that is coming.

Also, such a unique use of a variety of different munzees showing there are so many ways to make the same thing.

Teddy Bear Garden by CoalCracker7 in Gettysburg, PA

What an adorable way to celebrate the birth of a new baby!

This garden was created for this year’s Teddy Bear’s Picnic event! The tummy was colored blue to celebrate the birth of former staff member Daniel Hammock’s son.

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

November POTM

November’s POTM requires the completion of 20 Daily ZeeOps Missions within the month. There’s still a bit of time left to earn this badge, so don’t fret if you are close!

Thank you for trying out the new Daily ZeeOps! You can expect to see the badge in early December. If you weren’t able to meet the requirements this time, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

We hope you enjoy what the updated ZeeOps program has to offer! To keep things fresh we’re planning to change up the missions and rewards in the future, so be on the lookout!

December POTM Requirements

This month’s POTM requirement was suggested by a player, and we thought it would be a great fit for the season of giving. We want to hear about Munzee acts of kindness! For December Player Of The Month we want you to send in stories about times your faith in humanity was restored (or perhaps you were the restorer of faith to someone else!) while playing Munzee. We know our player community is full of great people, so we’re expecting to receive a lot of submissions! Please send your stories to the Google Form at this link: https://forms.gle/JqF1LPaft6G6yeBAA

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

We hope you’re excited for what December has in store!

Munzee on!

Welcome Walla EggZ – Suitable For Children of All Ages!

Last week we announced our special Holiday Card Collectors Club, and we’re happy to see many of you have joined! We’re looking forward to seeing a lot of Greeting Cards and Cyborg Santas on the map for everyone to cap (there’s still a lot of time to join). But that’s not the only thing we have planned for December! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on November 24th, Walla EggZ will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 15th.

A total of 798 Walla EggZ specials will be unleashed! That breaks down into 399 virtual Walla Joy Eggs and 399 physical Walla Surprise Eggs. Though there will only be one icon for each type shown on the map, there are a possibility of 8 different icons that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Greeting Cards work. Also similar to our World Laughter Day specials earlier this year! They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

Each of the 8 icons will correspond to a different fun-sized toy or candy! Will you be able to collect them all?

You can find these treasure-filled treats bouncing to the following:

Points

  • Capture: 78 points
  • CapOn: 39 points

Walla Joy Eggs will be attracted to Virtual Magnets, while Walla Surprise Eggs will be attracted to Physical Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

There is also a line featuring 5 new badges to earn. 3 are based off overall captures of Walla EggZ specials; the remaining 2 are based off capturing certain fillings. The first badge in the series appears as follows:

Box O’ Walla Eggz- Capture 1 Walla EggZ special.

It’s up to you to figure out the exact requirements for the remaining 4 badges! Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

Munzee Toolkit MunzDay: Ulifredo

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!

The week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes to us from Ulifredo, who hails from Germany. With only 4 months of Munzee experience, Ulifredo has amassed more than 300,000 points, 200 badges, and 100 deploys. He’s also made some great progress towards the Capture Super Streak, as he’s managed to cap something every day from just a few days after he started! Ulifredo has a compact kit perfect for his preferred mode of transportation! Read on to learn more about this charming new player!

Ulifredo Toolkit

Hello! My Munzee name is Ulifredo, that was the name of my first cat. I am from Germany. I’ve only been playing for 3 months (at the time of writing — we received his submission in October), but I’m completely hooked!

Like many people in this country, I use the bike a lot. It is very convenient to quickly capture rare bouncers (before others :)), avoiding traffic jams. To orient myself while riding, I have that phone holder for the handlebar, where I visualize the Munzee map.

Since I need free hands, I carry that fanny pack (or belt pouch), which is very light and with enough capacity for all the things I need. These are:

  • A mask (in the flat back pocket). Maybe you do not need it if you go to a solitary area, but just in case.
  • Power bank. The cable has an extension to recharge the phone comfortably while riding.
  • Granola/cereal bars, in case you miss your lunch (or even your dinner). When you munzee, you know when you start, but you don’t know when you will finish…
  • A fine pen marker (0.4 mm) to repair damaged or faded-out munzees (sometimes it works!!)
  • Pads to clean lenses (in the small front pocket), they are useful to clean dirty stickers, or to clean surfaces when you deploy.
  • And of course some generics (also in the small front pocket) to QRew/ZeeQRew or simply because you never know when you are going to find a nice place to deploy.

Munzee on!

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 Ulifredo for sharing his Munzee Toolkit! If you live in Germany or have the good fortune to travel there in the future, try to find some of his munzees, or deploy some for him to cap!

Munzee on!

At the Start of Any Physical Activity, Make Time For December 2020’s Resolution!

Ever woke up late and sprinted to school or work, making it just on time? Or saw a little kid fall into the deep end of a pool and dove quickly to save them? While the adrenaline pumping through your veins allows you to act in the moment, we bet you’ll be suffering from some soreness the next day! That’s why it’s important to devote some time to this month’s resolution, which will help you ease into your exercises and reduce discomfort.

As we announced in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of being active. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to practicing a different exercise. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. This month’s badge may be tricky to get, but we believe in you!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. For December, we’re putting the focus on Dynamic Stretching! You may be thinking — the opposite of “dynamic” is “static”, so is there also “static stretching”? If so, what’s the difference? The answer is, yes, there is both “dynamic” and “static” stretching, and the difference is pretty intuitive. Keep reading to find out!

So what is dynamic stretching and what is static stretching?

Dynamic stretching is the kind of stretching you should be doing as a warm-up at the start of a workout or other physical activity. According to Healthline.com, “Dynamic stretches can be functional and mimic the movement of the activity or sport you’re about to perform. For example, a swimmer may circle their arms before getting into the water.” Similarly, in the badge art above, the runners are making sure to carefully bend and stretch their arms and legs in a way similar to how they would be while running. To reiterate, dynamic stretching is preparing your body for a lot of movement by “pre-moving” it and giving it time to adjust.

As for static stretching, the goal is not preparing your body for movement — quite the opposite, as you’ve probably guessed. You are stretching, and then holding that stretch. This might sound great for those who are lazy exercisers, but don’t think you can get away with doing static stretching alone. Static stretching is actually only recommended AFTER warming up your body. This is because the increased circulation reduces tension in your muscles, allowing you to stretch more easily and lessening the risk of pulling a muscle or otherwise straining yourself. Once you’ve warmed up though, static stretching is a great way to increase your flexibility and cool down.

Before you attempt any exercise, it’s always a good idea to consult your doctor**. Good luck and Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead! 

** MUNZEE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY EXERCISE-RELATED INJURIES

Munzee Toolkit Thurzday: Jawillia

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!

The week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes to us from Jawillia, who hails from Niceville, FL. With over 4 years of Munzee experience, Jawillia has amassed over 6.5 million points thanks to her active gameplay. Despite having deployed over 1,000 munzees, Jawillia has created a simple toolkit that works well for her and her husband! Read on to discover their essentials!

Jawillia Toolkit

My Munzee name is Jawillia. The name has followed me from the earliest days of my IT career, when jobs were run via Punched Cards, and took days to get back. So that tells you I’m not young. Munzee is the best thing that happened to old age. It is the one hobby that you can continue to do past the point that your body says no to so many others. We have had to change how we Munzee, and especially in these days, but it is still one of my leading sources of fun.

Our Munzee toolkit is the same for each car. The bag was chosen because it holds readily uncut sheets of 25 micros, a pair of childrens pointed end scissors, a flashlight, and typically a few personal Munzees. We keep the different types of Munzees we plan to use sorted with plastic bags inside the case. It fits easily in the glove compartment, and then in my hubby’s pant’s pocket, or a jacket pocket when we’re away from the car.

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.

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 Jawillia for sharing her Munzee Toolkit! Next time you’re in Florida, swing by Niceville and cap some of her munzees, or deploy some for her to cap!

If you’re a fan of our Greeting Card munzees, we’ve got just the thing! We are excited to introduce the Holiday Card Collectors Club (HCCC), which you’re able to purchase starting NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

Maybe you were preparing for another Advent Calendar? Well, this year, we’ll be sending goodies to you every day during the month of December! Why the name change? As this covers more than the traditional Advent period, we felt that the “Advent Calendar” name didn’t quite fit. In addition, also unlike Advent Calendars of the past (2018, 2019), Club members will receive virtual items only. While there’s no denying that getting something in your real-world mail is always special, we felt that this would be more appropriate given the current situation, and just a less stressful option for all involved — we don’t have to worry about shipping things out by a deadline, and you don’t have to worry about packages being stolen or being held up in customs!

Mail Call!

In an attempt to keep some of the magic, we’ve also created a totally new game piece to deliver Collectors Club items! The Holiday Mailbox Munzee is guaranteed to deliver this holiday season!

Sure, we could have just decided on adding things directly to your account on an automated schedule — but where’s the fun in that? We wanted to give you something to cap each day too (like the Skyland and Places munzees). When you deploy this new game piece nearby it will only be visible to AND cappable by you. To ensure that you are able to capture this new game piece each day, you’ll also be able to update its location if you’ll be traveling at any point during the month. We really don’t want you to miss out! It is very important you capture it each day during December.

It’s worth 100 deploy points!  When it comes to captures you’ll receive 10 points before December; mystery number of points during December. The mailbox can be captured up to 1000 feet away and is found under the Virtuals filter but ONLY visible to the OWNER. The holiday mailbox will be archived at the end of December or early January. THE HOLIDAY MAILBOX MUST BE DEPLOYED IN APP!

How the Holiday Mailbox Works:

Starting December 1st at 00:01 MHQ, each day you cap your Holiday Mailbox you will be awarded a different holiday themed Greeting Card capture, similar to the World Laughter Day specials. Please note that you’ll only be able to earn that specific card on that day, so you really don’t want to miss a day. Once you cap that card you’ll earn points, and depending on which tier of Club Membership you purchase you may also get some extra prizes!

There are 3 tiers of Club Membership you can purchase HERE:                                        You are only able to purchase ONE tier per player account.

  • Tier 1 “Capper” is available for $5 and includes the NEW Holiday Mailbox, which will deliver 31 Greeting Card munzees for you to capture.
  • Tier 2 “Giver” is available for $15 and includes everything in Tier 1 PLUS a matching Holiday Card each day for you to deploy, maybe near a friend? That’s 31 new cards to deploy on top of the 31 you can cap! You’ll also get some special bonuses scattered throughout the month, which could be double points days, exclusive specials or scatters to cap, credits or undeployed munzees, etc.
  • Tier 3 “Collector” is available for $25 and includes everything in Tier 2 PLUS all bonuses we have planned (some that Tier 2 will not have access to), AND a special Cyborg Santa temporary POB deployed from your account on December 1st! The bonus rewards will be well worth joining this tier over the previous two. We’ll release more details about Cyborg Santa closer to the launch date, so stay tuned!

Once you’ve decided on a Tier, you can purchase it in the FT Store! Please make absolutely sure you’re satisfied with the Tier you select before purchasing, as we may not be able to change it. You may only join one tier. You will still be able to purchase these Club Memberships into December, but you won’t be able to earn rewards from the days that have passed. We suggest purchasing your Club Membership as soon as possible to start learning the mysteries of the mailbox and prepare for December fun!

Join us in celebrating the entire month of December with 31 days of joyous surprises! Are you ready to join the Club?

Munzee on!

Go Viral The Instant You Put On These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

No, these glasses aren’t from your favorite 8-bit video game — they’re from the “Deal with it” meme! If you’re not sure what we’re writing about, see our corresponding social posts for an example. These iconic shades were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. What is your favorite meme and why?

Only eleven Meme Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

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

Capturing the Meme Glasses will add this eye-catching Viral Vision badge to your collection! Also, as of July we’ve released the details on the overall capture line — the post is HERE if you missed it!

So what exactly is a meme? Many of us know what they are intuitively, but it can be hard to find the right words to explain what they are to friends and family who’ve been living under rocks. Thankfully, “meme” has already made it into the dictionary, so here’s how merriam-webster.com defines it:

  1. an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture
  2. an amusing or interesting item (such as a captioned picture or video) or genre of items that is spread widely online especially through social media

The second definition is probably what you gravitate towards when defining memes, but the more general first definition is interesting too — it means that memes are very similar to trends or fads, but without the commercial connotation the latter two carry. What are some memes you can think of that didn’t originate on the internet? Here’s a fun example from BBC.com showing a meme from the 1920’s!

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!
