MHQ is Throwing Out Some Boomerang Bouncers!

If you thought the Aussie Animals were the only Australian-themed bouncers you were going to get, guess again! These bouncers are both beautiful and potentially deadly — you may recall that boomerangs were originally used by Australian Aboriginal tribes as hunting weapons! Please exercise extreme caution as you make your approach — we make no guarantees on our aim!

Boomerang Details

We have six designs of bouncing MOB specials (3 virtual, 3 physical) flying around the world from now all the way until February 9 at 23:59 MHQ time! These wooden wonders land on Greenies and Virtuals respectively, but both also land on their corresponding Elemental Munzees as well! Virtual Boomerangs will land on Air Mystery Munzees and physical Boomerangs will land on Earth Mystery Munzees. The specials will bounce every 6 hours or when captured. 756 of these specials have been released (126 of each type) for plenty of capping opportunities!

The physical specials will be attracted to Munzee Magnets on Greenies, while the virtual specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virts. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Physical Specials

The physical specials include the Root Runner Boomerang, the Country Crawler Boomerang, and the Great Dividing Boomerang. These physical bouncers will land on the following:

  • Greenies
  • Earth Mystery Munzees

The physical bouncing specials will all be worth 261 points for the Capture and 75 points for the Host.

Virtual Specials

The virtual specials include the Parting Sea Boomerang, the Sunsetter Boomerang, and the Coral Catcher Boomerang. These virtual bouncers will land on the following:

  • All colors of Virtual Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees

These virtual bouncing specials will all be worth 126 points for the Capture and 75 points for the Host.

Badges

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Boomerang specials. Similar to our Aussie Animals, the artwork for these badges is based on items from our sister app WallaBee! 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:

We hope these bouncers will fly to a munzee near you!

Munzee on!

NEW Mother Earth AlternaMyth, Nymph Capture Badges, and POBs Restocked!

This month has unexpectedly shifted focus for us at MHQ. We had planned to extend winter by having fun with Ice Elementals, the Krampus Faun, and other ideas-that-shall-not-be-named, but the recent brush fires in Australia put the emphasis on the importance of life and regrowth. Continuing on that theme, we are happy to welcome the latest AlternaMyth, Mother Earth, along with our brand new Nymph Capture Badges!

Welcome, Mother Earth!

Ready to meet the mother to us all? This gentle lady offers you the world in the palm of her hand, joining the game as a Nymph AlternaMyth. This Team Owned Bouncer has been deployed on behalf of each Freeze Tag staff member’s account as of 15:00 MHQ time!

Mother Earth bounces on Greenies, Shamrocks, Elemental Munzees, Brown Virtuals, and Green Virtuals.

That means she will land on the following Munzees:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrocks
  • Elemental Munzees
    • Fire
    • Water
    • Ice
    • Earth
    • Air
  • Brown Virtual Munzees
    • Virtual Mahogany Munzees
    • Virtual Chestnut Munzees
    • Virtual Tumbleweed Munzees
    • Virtual Raw Sienna Munzees
    • Virtual Brown Munzees
  • Green Virtual Munzees
    • Virtual Sea Green Munzees
    • Virtual Granny Smith Apple Munzees

    • Virtual Asparagus Munzees
    • Virtual Olive Green Munzees
    • Virtual Yellow Green Munzees

    • Virtual Spring Green Munzees

Ready to earn some points? Capturing Mother Earth will earn you 500 points, with 50 points for CapOn!

Points

  • Capture: 500
  • CapOn: 50

Mother Earth will be attracted to both Physical and Virtual Munzee Magnets, but she is NOT blastable. You can find her by turning on your “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Mythological” filters. Capturing her will count towards the Overall Myth Capture badges. Don’t forget that Mother Earth will also count toward the current staff Mythical Meetings TOB badges! You can access a complete list of FT team accounts at the end of the blog. But first, we have more Nymph fun!

Nymph Capture Badges

Alongside the release of Mother Earth, players also have the opportunity to start earning SIX new Nymph Capture badges! Ready to set some capture goals? The first three badges in the series will appear as follows:

With your powers combined, you’ll be certain to summon Mother Earth!

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

Announcing the Grand Opening of Our In-App Store!

Have you ever gone to a Munzee event and realized you didn’t have enough blasts? Have you ever been out in the field for Clan Wars, desperately trying to get enough points to meet level requirements without specific credits? Well, the latest  update to the Munzee app will address all of these issues and more!

Please note that you can only get access to the new In-App Store by updating your app in the Apple App or Google Play Stores. This is not an Over-The-Air (OTA) Update, it may take longer for the update to be available. If you don’t see it in the app stores yet, check back later!

NEW In-App Store

Why have an In-App store? Convenience for you! Now you can purchase select Munzee products at your convenience, just by navigating to the In-App Store! No more booting up your computer every time you want to buy something, or dealing with the less friendly mobile version of store.freezetag.com. The In-App Store is linked  to your Apple or Google Play accounts for an even easier purchasing experience! 

You can access the new in-app store from a number of different areas in the app including the top of the map screen, the side menu, and when using certain items. For example if you go to activate a Magnet and you’re all out of stock, you can purchase one right then and there!

For the introduction of an in-app store we decided to keep things simple by paring down the offerings. You’ll see the basics of Munzee gameplay pieces in stock, with a few new products sprinkled in as well. 

NEW In-App Currency

The new In-App Store also comes with a new in-app currency. Zeds can be used to purchase in-game items, like Blast Captures, Magnets, Boosters and more! You can purchase Zeds in the In-App Store in a variety of different bundles, and you’ll also get some Zeds with your (one-time) Virtual StarterPak purchase. Starting tomorrow, you’ll also now be able to earn Zeds from Prize Wheels, and Pimedus captures as well!

 

NEW Products!

What are these “new products”? The first for your consideration is the Virtual StarterPak! Like the Physical StarterPak, this Virtual StarterPak will contain a good variety of virtual munzees at a discount, perfect for introducing any new players to the virtual game. Existing players can also purchase this pack! It is available for a one-time purchase per player. 

Next on the list are the 2 new Blast Capture types — the MEGA and Mini Blast! These additional blast sizes will allow you greater control over how many munzees you capture. The MEGA Blast can capture up to 500 virtual munzees within a 1-mile radius, while the Mini Blast can capture up to 50 virtual munzees within a 1-mile radius. These new types are currently only available through the In-App Store though, so be sure to check it out! 

Lastly, we bring you a few not-totally-new things, but things that were previously unavailable for purchase: Physical Capture Boosters and Virtual Deploy Boosters, both of which will be available in Special Packs as you’ll see in the list below.

Now, we’ll leave you to peruse the list of products! Is there anything else you’d like to see in the store?

Awesome Aussie Animals Continue the Fundraising!

In our effort to raise funds for Australia Relief, we announced the creation of 3 new virtual gardens earlier in the week. The gardens sold out much faster than we had expected, which shows how ready and willing our community is to contribute to this cause! For those who were unable to purchase garden pins, we are proud to announce another opportunity for you with a new offering!

These ALL NEW Temporary Player Owned Bouncers (POBs) are adorable Aussie Animals and they’re on sale NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store! A portion of the proceeds from this sale will also be added to our Australia Relief donation, so thank you all for supporting this great cause!

Like Pouch Creatures, Aussie Animals are based on items from our sister app, WallaBee, and represent a new era of munzees to enjoy! Temporary POBs work much like regular POBs, but they’re only on the map for a limited amount of time.  There are two types of Aussie Animals, the Kangaroo and Koala, and since these munzees won’t be around forever they have a smaller purchase price of $5 each. You can also purchase up to 5 of each animal per player account!

Aussie Animals

Aussie Animals are temporary POBs that bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. They will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on April 30, when they 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: 126 points
  • Capture: 261 points
  • CapOn: 126 points

You can find these cute creatures bouncing to the following landing pads every 12 hours or when captured:

  • Greenies
  • Safari Bus Evolution Munzees- All Levels
    • Safari Truck (V)
    • Safari Van (V)
    • Safari Bus (V)
  • King Of The Jungle Evolution Munzees- All Levels
    • Lion Cub
    • Lion
    • King Of The Jungle
  • Water Mystery Munzees
  • Aquamarine Jewel Munzees
  • Wildlife Places Munzees (V)
  • White Virtual Munzees (V)
  • Virtual Blue tones (V)
    • VIRTUAL BLUE VIOLET MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL INDIGO MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CADET BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL PERIWINKLE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CORNFLOWER MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL BLUE GREEN MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL PACIFIC BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CERULEAN MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL ROBIN EGG BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL TURQUOISE BLUE MUNZEES
  • TREEHOUSE

Aussie Animals will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Kangaroo and Koala on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Aussie Animal visits you. However, Aussie Animals will be non-blastable. They will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on White and Blue-toned Virtual Munzees. You can access Aussie Animals under the “Only Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

All players who purchase a Kangaroo Aussie Animal or a Koala Aussie Animal will receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Aussie Animals 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:

Jumping Joeys – Capture 1 Aussie Animal Munzee of any type.

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

Munzee on!

Help Our Friends Down Under With The Australia Relief Virtual Garden!

UPDATE 1/15/2020:

All the Kangaroo Garden in Adelaide, the Koala Garden in Melbourne, and the Wombat Garden in Sydney are all SOLD OUT. Thank you all for your support! 

We have also updated the donation locations to better match the areas of the gardens. The funds raised from the Melbourne Koala Garden will actually be sent to the Country Fire Authority (CFA) and the funds raised from the new Sydney Wombat Garden will be sent to the NSW Rural Fire Service. The gardens are the same size so there is no difference in donation amount assuming all are sold. Apologies for the confusion on our part!

Last week we announced some special guests were attending the upcoming Australia Day events Down Under, but we also mentioned some possible opportunities to support those affected by the wildfires. We’ve probably all watched the destruction taking place in Australia from the wildfires and we wanted to help in some way.

One virtual munzee will automatically be deployed in the Sydney Garden after it has been purchased. 30% of the proceeds from this item will support emergency relief efforts through a donation to the The NSW Rural Fire Service. To learn more about NSW RFS please visit https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/about-us.

Here is the product link to the Melbourne Aussie Garden- Sydney. *SOLD OUT*

We have launched a new Koala virtual garden dedicated to providing some relief to the affected animals and communities in and around Melbourne. 30% of the proceeds from the sales of this specific garden will be donated to the Country Fire Authority (CFA). To learn more about CFA please visit https://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/about/supporting-cfa#donate-cfa.

Here is the product link to the Melbourne Aussie Garden- Melbourne. *SOLD OUT*

Today we are launching a new Kangaroo virtual garden dedicated to providing some relief to the affected animals and communities in and around Adelaide. 30% of the proceeds from the sales of this specific garden will go to the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, located just off the coast of Adelaide. This garden is near the upcoming Australia Day events, and thankfully the hosts have informed us the area is safe from fires.

Here is the product link to the Aussie Garden- Adelaide. *SOLD OUT*

Your $1 Virtual Munzee purchase in this garden will automatically deploy a virtual for your account. Each player account is limited to 10 virtuals in each of the gardens. Please note that if you purchased the max amount of spots in one garden you can still purchase up to 10  spots in another garden as well.

Thank you for supporting both our game, and the animals in Australia. Stay tuned because we have another unique way you can help bouncing your way soon.

Event Spotlight: FL Suncoast Event III

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the FL Suncoast Event III, which took place on January 14, 2017 at Medard Park in Plant City, FL and was hosted by hunniees, dt07751, Jafo43, and EagleDadandXenia.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

The Suncoast Event is held in the Florida Munzee belt in central Florida and is the largest munzee event held in the US, not associated with Geowoodstock or Freeze Tag. The Suncoast event is actually a series of Munzee events held throughout the weekend in various locations throughout Florida’s Suncoast. While these events are held over the holiday weekend in January, we can guarantee the location sites are always snow free. :-).

We have a team of hosts who make this event possible so that we may provide a lunch of walking tacos, donuts, and sweet treats for our attendees and give away prizes to registrants without charge.

We try to provide a weekend filled with fun, Munzee, badges, icons, and a game or two of Eventzee. Our attendees also are provided with a map of Florida gardens (goo.gl/tikFn3) to help our guests maximize their points over the weekend.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

(1) Have your events and Eventzee go live before your event begins. This will allow you time to assure everything is working properly and resolve any issues identified before all your attendees arrive.

(2) Identify a great group of hosts who are willing to work together to assure success.

(3) Keep it simple. If you try to do too much, your attendees won’t have time to chat or enjoy the event.

(4) Have fun!

What made your event unique?

Our event is held in a great snow-free location in Florida with access to millions of munzee points. While the food and prizes stay the same, we try to vary the event sites and offer new gardens for capping each year.

Would you like to highlight any future events you’re hosting?

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1572898151/ 

This year Suncoast events will be held January 17 and January 18 in Brandon and Tampa, Florida. Full details and links to additional events are available at the calendar link.

A special thank you to hunniees for submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox! To encourage helpful input from past hosts, we have created a shiny new badge which you can see below! Everyone who is listed as a host for a spotlighted event will receive this badge!

Thank you to hunniees, dt07751, Jafo43, and EagleDadandXenia for being such great hosts!

Elvis’s Glasses Have Left the Building!

It’s a well-known fact in the Munzee community that we are fans of the The King. Dylan has even graced an event in his likeness! Following the success of last week’s special Spectacular Spectacles, our second 20/20 Vision Munzee will add a little rock-and-roll to your wardrobe with its conveniently attached sideburns! These beauties were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Time to fry up some peanut butter and banana sandwiches!

Only one pair of The King’s Sunglasses will be deployed, and it will bounce to all colors of virtual munzees 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 King’s Sunglasses will add this rockin’ T-See-B badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates.

Elvis was a prolific artist, releasing many timeless classics such as “Burning Love,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” and “Hound Dog”! His talent also translated well to both the big and small screens, racking up quite a few film and TV credits. If you’ve experienced every piece of media about Elvis, but still want more, you may be excited to hear a new biopic is scheduled for release next year!

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 trendy lenses!

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!

Foresight is 20/20 with these New Specials!

This Throwback Thursday harkens back to the joys of yesteryear with an equally special announcement. Following the success of last year’s Global Grub specials, we are excited to announce that our first of two dozen 20/20 Vision specials for the year will be launching this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. If you use reading glasses, make sure you have them equipped so you can learn all about these special accessories!

The 20/20 Vision specials are very rare munzees that will bounce around the world for the remainder of the year. That means you’ll be spending the next twelve months capturing pins featuring 24 different pairs of glasses in order to earn their corresponding badges. We hope spotting these rare munzees will help to train and improve your vision!

Our first 20/20 Vision special to launch is the Spectacular Spectacles Munzee! This physical munzee, features a pair of plain black frames. These may seem a little basic, but don’t worry there’s all sorts of eye-catching eyewear in store! Only one will be deployed, and it will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 


Points:

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

Players will earn a badge for each different 20/20 Vision Munzee they capture starting with the Perfect Vision badge for capturing the Spectacular Spectacles pin! Down the line, we’ll also be putting out an overall capture line, so stay tuned for more.

Each 20/20 Vision Munzee will go live at 15:00 MHQ on their assigned day. We’re not announcing when each launch will be, but we expect to release a couple specials each month.

All 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. Until then, you’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own. Although there is only one Spectacular Spectacles 20/20 Vision Special, future releases may include more. You’ll just have to wait and see! Some of these specials will be physical, while others will be virtual. Keep in mind that virtuals will not be blastable.

If this latest update has you excited, you’re in luck. We will be launching our second 20/20 Vision special — this one inspired by an iconic celebrity — next week, so stay tuned! 

Don’t forget, we want to see you playing! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and tag us on Facebook or Instagram. Good luck, and Munzee on!

2019 Yearly Leaderboard Badges!

At first glance, Munzee seems like a pretty simple game. Scan physical munzees to get points. Tap on virtual munzees to get even more points. There are different types of physical munzees and different types of virtual munzees that award you with varying numbers of points. Simple, right?

What’s not so simple is how to stay on top of all the numerous active players! While more established players do have an advantage in terms of deployed munzees (rake in those CapOn points!), they face difficulties in finding munzees to cap, especially if they are active in Clan Wars! Taking advantage of special points days, active Flat Friends days, and other strategies are necessary to maintain or improve their ranking.

For the first time in Munzee History we are happy to recognize the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place on the overall yearly leaderboard for 2019! These accomplished players are, as follows:

  1. OldSchoolSkater
  2. hunniees
  3. dt07751

Congratulations! Now the pressure’s on to keep your spot for next year!

Other Munzee players — think you have what it takes to dethrone this Triumphant Trio? We think anything’s possible!

Munzee On!
