V Day 2019 Munzee Specials Are Here! Heavenly Hammock and More

The day of romance is almost upon us, and what could be more romantic than Heavenly Flat Hammock?

Cupid who?

In honor of Valentine’s Day 2019, we have two specials launching this week, including virtuals and physicals!

Heavenly Hammock 

Some of you have already been treated to a Heavenly Flat Hammock virtual bouncing special sighting on your map. This special virtual launched on February 12 at 00:01 MHQ time, and it will last until February 24 at 23:59 MHQ time. That gives players plenty of time to spot everyone’s favorite angel of love! Heavenly Hammock will bounce every six hours or when captured. When the special first started there was only one bouncing around, but each time one is capped, another is deployed. Who knows how many of the cupids could be floating around by the end of the special?

Points

  • Capture: 142
  • CapOn: 42

Lands On 

  • Crossbows
  • Stage two virtual evolutions
  • All variety of pink/red virtuals
    • Virtual Melon
    • Virtual Pink
    • Virtual Carnation Pink
    • Virtual Mauvelous
    • Virtual Salmon
    • Virtual Tickle Me Pink

    • Virtual Bittersweet
    • Virtual Red Orange
    • Virtual Scarlet
    • Virtual Red
    • Virtual Brick Red
    • Virtual Mahogany
  • Flat Hammocks

Heavenly Hammocks will be attracted to Virtual Munzee Magnets, but only when used on the Virtual Munzee colors listed above. There will also be two badges associated with capturing Heavenly Hammock specials. The first badge in the series will be as follows:

Capture 1 Heavenly Hammock special

As a special Valentine’s Day bonus, all Flat Hammocks will be 14 percent off for 24 hours, starting February 13 at 15:00 MHQ time. And this is only half of our Valentine’s Day special!

Throwback Candy Hearts  

Starting at 00:01 MHQ time on February 14, our Throwback Candy Heart Physicals will be live until February 24 at 23:59 MHQ time. These revamped designs are similar to our 2015 charity specials, but just different enough to give you some new icons to add to your collection! It might not be easy to pick up everyone’s favorite conversation candies in stores this year, but you can cap four different versions of them on the map for Valentine’s Day and beyond. (Just don’t try eating them!)

All four types of candy hearts will be attracted to Munzee Magnets, but only when used on Greenies. These Physical bouncers will bounce every 6 hours or when captured. There will be four different icons, with 214 of each icon deployed for plenty of chances to cap your own special Valentine’s message from MHQ. (They’re almost as romantic as Heavenly Flat Hammock.)

Points

  • Capture: 56
  • CapOn: 56

Lands On

  • Greenies
  • Premiums
  • Stage two physical evos
  • RUMs

Additionally, there will be two badges associated with capturing our Throwback Candy Hearts. The first in the series will appear as follows:

Capture 1 Throwback Candy Heart special of any type

Don’t forget to act fast, because these bad boys are almost out of stock!

Limited Time Sales

And, of course, what holiday would be complete without a little present? You can access all of our Valentine’s Day specials here!

In honor of the day of love, all Flat Hammocks will be 14 percent off until 15:00 MHQ on Thursday, February 14, so don’t forget to pick up these romantic Valentine’s gifts! You can enjoy the same 14 percent off discount on Physical Jewels, including Diamond, Ruby, Aquamarine, Topaz, and Pink Diamond! The Physical Jewel sale will last until 10:00 MHQ on Monday, February 18 for a little extra shopping time.

And don’t forget to shop our brand new Heavenly Hammock and Valentine’s Day Personal Tags! It’s a close call between who wins cutest tag!

Who do you deploy for? Let us know on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook.

Happy Valentine’s Day, and Munzee On!

Czech Republic & Slovakia Iconic Location Munzees Join the Map!

Two new Iconic Location Munzees will be dropped on the map today at 10:00 MHQ, with Czech Republic and Slovakia joining the likes of Australia as our latest Iconic Location Munzees.

Our most recent Tourism Munzees will join the ranks of Great BritainFlorida, California and more. You can locate these special virtual munzees by turning on your Tourism filter.

Iconic Location Munzees are deployed by an MHQ account based on a database of historical markers, with player d-n helping us map out our latest locations.  Players will earn 50 points when they capture either the Czech Republic Iconic Location Munzee or the Slovakia Iconic Location Munzee. These virtuals will be non-blastable, so it’s going to take a bit of work to cap them. Think you have what it takes?

Like some of our other Iconic and Historic Location Munzees, the Czech Republic and Slovakia munzees will not be accompanied by a distinct set of badges. Instead all captures will count towards the newly released Tourism line of badges. Tourism badges are largely linked to Historic and Iconic Location Munzees, which feature different countries from around the world. Currently there are a total of six badges.

With today’s release of our two new Iconic Location Munzees, we’ve also decided to launch an extension of the Great Britain Iconic Location Munzees. They will now be available to cap in the entirety of the United Kingdom! Keep your eyes peeled, because we plan to release more Historic and Iconic Location Munzees down the line!

If you ever notice any Iconic Location or Historic Munzees deployed in the wrong place, please contact support with the name/URL of the munzee and correct information. And don’t forget to connect with us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to let us know if you’ve capped an Iconic Location Munzee yet!

Happy Hunting, and Munzee On!

Limited Time Sale! Shop Mitmegu and More!

It’s time to act fast, because the Mitmegu Pouch Creatures will not be sticking around the Freeze Tag Online Store for long! Our limited time Mitmegu collection sale starts today at 10:00 MHQ time, and you won’t want to miss the following offers!

Mitmegu

Only a limited number of Mitmegu will be available for public sale. Each Mitmegu will cost $15, but you can upgrade it with a Bouncer Upgrade credit for an extra $5. The Bouncer Upgrade credit will equip your Mitmegu with the ability to be “nudged” to a new Munzee. This nudge feature can be used up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day) after it has sat for a minimum of three hours so that other players have the opportunity to find it.

Joining Mitmegu for sale are our other Pouch Creatures, Tuli, Vesi, and Muru. The Bouncer Upgrade credit will upgrade all Pouch Creatures and all Myths, so be sure to pick one up in the shop! If you haven’t deployed a Pouch Creature yet, now is your chance! The Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Pouch Creature. While the name will still retain the unique number, you have the chance to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. (Just remember our player code of conduct!)

Additionally, the Water, Earth, and Fire Elemental Munzees will also be on sale this weekend in strips of 5 for $8, which is 20% off the original price! We also have Shamrock Munzees available in strips of 5 for $8. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner so stock up now!

Lastly, we are all stocked up with new Pouch Creature Personal Munzee metal tags for $10. The tag designs feature each transformation of a Pouch Creature, including Mitmegu! Pick up your own Personal tag today, featuring your favorite Pouch Creature! Remember that each individual design is limited to ONE per account.

Who’s your favorite Pouch Creature? Let us know by connecting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Happy Shopping, and Munzee On!

Global Grub Special Drops for Chinese New Year!

Nǐ hǎo! To celebrate the official start of Chinese New Year, we dropped our latest Global Grub special. Joining Switzerland and Australia, our newest Global Grub special will be a physical flag of China being deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ!

Only two China Global Grub Munzees will be deployed at the moment. Both will be physical! This Chinese flag munzee will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. You CAN capture it on your own munzees.

Points:

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

The Global Grub specials will be very rare and will bounce around the world for the rest of the year. Players will capture flag pins featuring different country maps and then earn badges featuring a unique dish of food from that country. It might be Year of the Pig, but our China Global Grub badge will feature a tasty dish of spiced tofu!

The following badge will be earned for capturing this munzee:

Players will earn a badge for each different type of Global Grub they capture, and we’ll also put out an overall capture line down the line. Keep in mind that some Global Grub will be physical, and some will be virtual. As a reminder, all Global Grub specials will leave the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ.

You better leave some room for seconds, because more unique Global Grub specials will launch throughout the year! Have you capped one yet? Share your progress with us on InstagramFacebook, or Twitter. Good luck, and Munzee On!

Introducing Mitmegu Pouch Creature!

Joining the ranks of Tuli, Vesi, Muru, and Hadavale, we’re happy to announce the release of our latest Pouch Creature, Mitmegu!

Also known as the ever-changing Pouch Creature, there will be a limited number of Mitmegu Pouch Creatures on sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting at 10:00 MHQ on Wednesday, February 6. Be sure to shop fast, because Mitmegu will not be in the store for long! Mitmegu will cost $15, but it can also be upgraded using a Bouncer Upgrade credit (formerly the Myth Upgrade) which costs an additional $5.

When the Bouncer Upgrade credit is used, your Mitmegu will then have the ability to be “nudged” to a new Munzee. You can use the nudge feature up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day), but only after it has sat for at least 3 hours. This gives players the opportunity to find it before you send it on its way!

The Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Mitmegu! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct, and be mindful of maintaining a family friendly environment!

Mitmegu

While Mitmegu will be the fourth player-owned Pouch Creature, it will work a bit differently than Tuli, Vesi and Muru. Mitmegu will change forms depending on what it lands on and capture streaks will not impact the changing critter’s evolution.

 

Mitmegu will land on the following Munzee types:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrock Munzees
  • Scatter Munzees
  • Premium Munzees
  • RPS Munzees

There is a rare opportunity that the Mitmegu will land on an Elemental Mystery and change forms!

  • If Mitmegu lands on a Water Mystery Munzee it turns into Jootmegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on an Earth Mystery Munzee it turns into Rohimegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on a Fire Mystery Munzee it turns into Lokemegu

Mitmegu will retain its number when it changes, and if you upgrade and change its name it will keep that name on all forms. Players can cap Mitmegu on their own munzees as well.

Mitmegu Points

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture/CapOn: See Below

Mitmegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Mitmegu

Jootmegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 400 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Jootmegu

Rohimegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 400 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Rohimegu

Lokemegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 400 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Lokemegu

You can find Mitmegu by turning on your Only Expiring Specials and Only Pouch Creatures filters. This new Pouch Creature WILL be attracted to physical magnets, but only as Mitmegu on Greenies. Don’t forget to pick up a magnet at the Freeze Tag Online Store and magnetize a greenie of your choosing to attract up to 3 Specials, Myths, or Pouch Creatures for up to an hour!

For deploying a Mitmegu Pouch Creature Munzee, you will earn the following deploy badge:

There will also be three badges to earn per variant, amounting to a total of thirteen badges including the deploy badge.

Here are the first for each variant:

Based on items from our sister app WallaBee, Pouch Creatures are part of a new era of munzees. Have you capped a Pouch Creature yet? Let us know by connecting on Facebook, Twitter, or InstagramHappy Hunting, and Munzee On!

February Resolution Badge Details!

How has 2019 been treating you so far? As we announced last month in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of self-improvement. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. 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. And since this month is the shortest, you have no excuse not to try!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. While our January resolution focused on eating healthy, we decided to do something special for the month of love. Love comes in more than just romantic forms, so we made our February resolution to make new friends.

February resolutions badge

Why meet new people?

Though socializing comes natural to some lucky humans, many struggle to build new friendships. While it’s tempting to retreat into yourself, there are actually proven health benefits that friendship can provide.

In fact, having friends may even extend your lifespan. People who forge strong social relationships are less likely to die prematurely compared to their isolated counterparts. Friends help each other get healthier, as well as improve mental sharpness. And, of course, we need friends to lean on in tough times, bounce ideas off, challenge our beliefs, and widen our perspectives. Overall, having a trusted network of friends makes us healthier, more balanced, and more centered beings.

One of our favorite parts about Munzee is all the new people we meet along the way. Whether we’re traveling across states or nations, or simply checking our social media and e-mails, we love hearing about and seeing how Munzee has brought people together. It’s not always easy to branch out, but sharing a common interest really helps with meeting new people. And while nothing can replace physical friends, it’s pretty awesome to have virtual ones as well!

So go out, make some friends, and maybe even introduce them to Munzee! 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!
