Flat Objects: The Future of Flat Types!

Don’t get us wrong — we love all 4 of our Flat Friends! But not all of our staff members are comfortable with being flattened. To allow for expansion of the Flat type, we’ve come up with Flat Objects! Think of them as the Munzee version of totems (à la Inception) where the Flat Object is something seemingly ordinary but is near and dear to each staff members’ hearts.

The first Flat Object is brought to you by Dylan, our indispensable Creative Director! If you’ve been a Munzee player for a while now, you’ve most likely met him, or at least heard of him… but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know the man, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Dylan’s Flat Object is a throwback to simpler times, and tube TV tech! Say hello to the Flat DHS, stylized after VHS Tapes from the 80s and 90s. Dylan has a nose for nostalgia, so these tapes (and the badges associated with them) will give you an insight to some of his favorite flicks. Read on to learn more!

Flat DHS Details

The Flat DHS joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, blastable

Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own.

Deploy: 19 points

Capture: Split 94 points with a minimum of 19 Points

CapOn: Split 94 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat DHS munzee, turn on your “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types” filter. For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat DHS, which, as mentioned above, feature some Munzee-fied versions of Dylan’s favorite movies. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy collecting Flat DHS tapes and learning a bit more about Dylan in the process!

Munzee on!

We’re Celebrating Women’s History Month Early!

Sometimes it can be helpful to look to others for inspiration and strength. We couldn’t think of better examples than these female luminaries, who overcame such difficult circumstances to become pioneers in their respective fields!

In celebration of Women’s History Month, starting at 12:00 MHQ today, Women’s History specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on March 14th.

A total of 1,200 Women’s History specials will be available to cap! They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. Each great lady favors the following landing pads:

  • Amelia Earhart
  • Frida Kahlo
    • Greenies
    • All Stages of Physical Flower Evolutions
      • Rose
      • Tulip
      • Lily
  • Hedy Lamarr
    • Greenies
    • Physical Jewels
      • Diamond
      • Ruby
      • Aquamarine
      • Topaz
      • Pink Diamond
  • Maya Angelou
  • Jane Goodall
  • Margaret Hamilton

They will be worth 150 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! They will be attracted to Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

When you capture a Women’s History special, up to three items will scatter nearby, like Feathers. These munzees will stay on the map for 2 hours or when captured, and are worth 50 points for the Capture.

Badges

As long as you cap each of the Women’s History specials, you’ll earn their respective badges.

We hope you enjoy meeting these accomplished women of history! Don’t forget to ask for an autograph!

Munzee on!

February 2021 GOTM Winners

This month our Valentines Card Collectors Club took center stage! We hope you enjoyed seeing each day’s featured Greeting Card, capping our Assorted Chocolates and Mythical Bandaidz, making the most of all the double point days, and receiving a few extra goodies to deploy as well! On top of that, we also celebrated our good fortune in getting 6 more weeks of Fr057y, welcomed the adorable Hamilton Hamzee, and introduced a new type of credit — Jewel Shards! We are now happy to announce the winners of the February Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early March, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

February GOTM

Since we’ve got Valentines on the mind all month long, we just couldn’t resist the LOVE-ly appeal of these winners! 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 Secret Valentine Garden, designed by Jeffeth, and the Folk CrossBow Garden, designed by Neloras, as our winning February GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Secret Valentine by Jeffeth in Ontario, Canada

A perfect secret message, as this garden will disappear from the map once you cap everything! (But isn’t that true for ALL gardens? Shhhhh)

Is it wrong to pick another ZeeOps-themed garden this month? We think not, especially if it complements our latest Secret ZeeOp, Operation: ZEEcret Admirer!

Folk CrossBow by Neloras in Bratislava, Slovakia

It might be hard to see against the grayish background of our web map, but the darker Joysticks guide your eye along the bowstrings!

We’ve received a few Crossbow-themed garden submissions in the past, but this one stood out due to its more complex design and increased variety of munzee types. Also, we felt it was fitting for February as it is our Special Delivery Cupid’s weapon of choice!

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.

Munzee on!

P.S. Are you looking for POTM requirements? Remember that last year, we announced that we were holding off on POTM for now as we develop a new way to highlight our unique player base!

Virtual Reseller Unique Munzees Have Arrived!

As we are just about a month away from the 5th birthday of Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs), we thought it was time to bring this special munzee type into the virtual fold! Like the Physical RUMs, you will only see the pin image below on the map and in the summary panel that appears when you tap on the pin:

Also like the Physical RUMs, once you tap to view the Munzee Details, you will see a pin image containing the logo/branding of the reseller it came from. The resellers will be launching this product at their own shops within the next 24-48 hours, we just want you to have all the information in advance. You can get links to shop all of our resellers HERE! Edit and Update: The virtual RUM is special because it is the first scattering virtual that is also *blastable (able to be capped by using a blast capture).

The points for Virtual RUMs are as follows:

  • Capture: 35
  • Deploy: 40
  • CapOn: 30

Similar to the Cyborg Santa, when a Virtual RUM is captured 1-3 NEW Reseller Packages will be scattered nearby!

The Reseller Packages will be visible to ALL players, not just the player who capped the Virtual RUM, and will be deployed on the Virtual RUM owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers, there are CapOn points for the owner! The Virtual RUM will count for clan wars and ZeeOps RUMs requirements. However, these package scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Reseller Packages are as follows:

  • Capture: 25
  • CapOn: 20

There is a badge for deploying each different Virtual RUM. The badges appear similarly to the Reseller Package pin icons shown above! Additional badge lines are coming soon for cumulative RUMs captures/deploys that will include all physical and virtual RUMs!

We hope you enjoy these new Virtual RUMs! Just don’t get too tipsy!

Munzee on!

*Due to the unique nature of a blastable scattering virtual, the number of scattered packages may be reduced in the future to save server/DB power and speed. Additional tweaks may be made in order to maintain the integrity of the game while preserving the value of the gamepiece.

Secret ZeeOps- Operation: ZEEcret Admirer (February 2021)

Agents, as promised, we have a new Secret ZeeOp available in the ZeeOps Hub! This means that Operation: WatchE.R. will be removed soon. However, if you’ve already purchased Operation: WatchE.R., you will be able to complete it and collect rewards even after it is no longer available for purchase.

Do you think you can track down your ZEEcret Admirer and remain unscathed? If you complete ALL the missions in Operation: ZEEcret Admirer, you’ll receive the snazzy badge below, along with the Laser Artillery Submarine Eating Robot (L.A.S.E.R.) Shark Munzee (a link to more info below!) and various other rewards listed in the app!

There are 5 levels. Level 1 has 3 missions, and all subsequent levels have 5 missions. Each level ends with more prizes.

We may share this information moving forward with other Operations but possibly not.

L.A.S.E.R. Shark Details

The L.A.S.E.R. Shark is an all new tPOB similar to the Spyderbot! To keep this blog post at a reasonable length, you can read all about it HERE!

 

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

This message will self destruct in 3… 2… 1…

Jewel Shards are a Smash Hit!

We’re finally ready to give our veteran players a requested feature with a fun twist. Welcome Jewel Shards! Similar to our Hotel renovations with Destination Credits, we wanted to create a more flexible system for Jewels. This is especially true after the warm reception to the Funfinity Stone Pouch Creatures last year.

This new system is designed for experienced players who may have an overstock of specific Jewel Credits. You’ll be able to choose if you want to redeem some of your Jewel Credits for Jewel Shards. If you do, you’ll be able to use those Jewel Shards to create new Jewels of your choosing. For example, you may have tons of Aquamarines stored up from past Clan War rewards and have no plans on using them. Now you have the option of breaking some of those Aquas into Jewel Shards and using them to get a Citrine or a Ruby. The choice will be yours within the options given.

Don’t worry if you have any Jewel Credits saved up — those will remain, and all Jewels can still be purchased in the Freeze Tag online store. Of course, not all Jewels are created equal, so different amounts of Jewel Shards are required to convert to each Jewel type.

You’ll find all the details and conversion rates at munzee.com/redeem.

While Jewel Shards are currently only available as trading elements online, who knows what the future holds? Perhaps a certain bot buddy will help find more, or maybe you’ll earn them in Clan Wars or ZeeOps? Only time will tell!

Munzee on!


FAQ:

Q: I’m a new player with no Jewel Shards and no Jewel credits to exchange. What do I do?
A: Be patient. This is being introduced as a tool for those who have accumulated many credits in order to give them a way to choose what type of Munzee they become and deploy.

Q: Why are the number of Jewel Shards given for a Jewel not the same as the number of Jewel Shards required to get a Jewel?
A: The vast majority of these Jewels were earned as rewards from Clan Wars, Prize Wheels, ZeeOps, and other gameplay activities. The value doesn’t change, but the option to upgrade into a different Jewel is accounted for.

Q: Why can’t I break a virtual Amethyst (or other virtual Jewels) into Jewel Shards?
A: Virtual Jewels are complete munzees in your undeployed list, so it isn’t the same process as exchanging a Jewel Credit for a Jewel Shards credit.

Q: What about Clan Weapons?
A: What about them? 😉 Stay tuned for possible expansions into other areas of the game!

Q: Can I trade my credits to another player or give Jewel Shards to another player?
A: Nope.

NEW Capture Mulligan and Credits Section in the In-App Store!

Our Capture, Deploy, and Super Streak badge lines are popular choices for many players looking to set a goal. It can be challenging to squeeze in daily play during a busy month, but with some careful planning, many of our players have managed to do it (at the time of writing, over 4,000 have earned the Super Streak badge). However, the second badge in each line ratchets up the difficulty, requiring an unbroken year of capture and/or deploy activity — undoubtedly a difficult feat!

Even the most dedicated player, with alarms and reminders set each day, can have an unforeseen circumstance come up. It takes just one unlucky day to break a streak. The past year has brought unlucky days for many, so we thought it was the right time to release the Capture Mulligans!

NEW Capture Mulligans

 

They will award 1 capture worth 50 points as follows:

  • 1 Day – Allows players to add a capture marked with yesterday’s date
  • 7 Day – Allows players to add a capture to the last day missed within the last 7 days (for example, as today is Feb 10th — if you missed capping something on both Feb 7th and Feb 8th, it will only add a capture with a Feb 8th date)
  • 14 Day – Allows players to add a capture to the last day missed within the last 14 days

As these items are meant for those one-off unlucky days, they are limited to 1 each per player every 30 days.

Please note that they are only available in the In-App Store, not in our online store.

Other Credits Available in the App

Along with the Capture Mulligans above, we’ve brought the following credits to the In-App Store for your convenience!

We hope this makes breaking your capture streak a little less devastating!

Munzee on!

Valentines Card Collectors Club Tiers 2 & 3 Day 10: Mythical Bandaidz

Tiers 2 & 3 Valentines Card Collectors Club members have their own exclusive hunt! Much like the Chocolate Covered Cherry Challenge, upon capturing your Valentines Mailbox, a pack of Mythical Bandaidz will scatter nearby! To reiterate, the mailbox must be capped on February 10th 00:01-23:59 MHQ time to deploy the Mythical Bandaidz. They’ll stay on the map for 36 hours after scattering, so that should give you ample time to collect them all! The capture radius is 500 feet for these!

A total of 14 Mythical Bandaidz specials will be unleashed! These will only be visible to the Valentines Mailbox owner and will scatter like Feathers. This means there are no CapOn points but they are worth 100 points for capture!

Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, there is guaranteed to be 1 special Rainbow Mythical Bandaidz with a different icon that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Greeting Cards work. The Rainbow Mythical Bandaidz is worth 250 points for capture.

To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badge

There will be 1 badge for finding the Rainbow Mythical Bandaidz. Since there’s only the 1 badge in this line, we want to keep it a secret for now. Hopefully it shouldn’t be too tough for you to get!

We hope you enjoy unwrapping Day 10 of the Valentines Card Collectors Club! Make sure to cap your Valentines Mailbox each day so you don’t miss out!

Otherwise, if you still haven’t joined the club yet and would like to do so now, click HERE! If you purchase a Tier 2 or Tier 3 membership TODAY you can still get Mythical Bandaidz specials long as you deploy and cap your Valentines Mailbox before 23:59 MHQ time on February 10th.

Lastly, if you want to check out what today’s Greeting Card looks like, or review past day’s goodies, you can check out the blog post HERE. Please note that that blog post may not immediately have the latest info as we cannot pre-schedule updates, but we’ll do so as soon as we can!

  • Water Mystery
  • Earth Mystery

  • Greenie
  • Water Mystery
  • Earth Mystery
  • Seasonal
  • Reseller Unique
  • Skyland

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

Badges

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

Lastly, captures of these Courier Critters will contribute to progress towards its own Courier Critters badge line. You can sneak a peek at the first of these new badges below!

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

Munzee on!
