You Are Cordially Invited to the 10th Annual Award ZEEson!

This year is our 10th birthday, and while we would have liked to pull out all the stops to celebrate, we still aren’t quite ready to host an in-person celebration. However, that doesn’t mean y’all can’t host your own safe, socially-distanced events! As this year is still an extra-special one for us, the theme we’ve decided on this year is Award ZEEson!

Event Package Overview

Get your events on the calendar (https://calendar.munzee.com/submit) and then choose from one of the following packages available in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Each has a unique host badge!

  • Gilded Guest – Basic event and no proximity restrictions – $30
  • Prized Presenter – The Gilded Guest plus 20 virtuals – $50
  • Notable Nominee – The Prized Presenter plus badge and icon (fully custom while time permits) – $150
  • Wonderful Winner – The Notable Nominee plus Eventzee (more info on that below!) and 50 EXCLUSIVE PaparaZEE Greeting Cards (similar to the March into May Event Greeting Cards) – $200

Birthday Box Garden Add-on – If you would like our themed Birthday Box Garden (similar to the March into May Events Tulip Gardens) to be deployed at your event location, this can be added onto any Birthday package. – $25

Emerald Prizes Add-on – If you would like your guests to receive a free Emerald garden pin, this can be added onto any Birthday package. – $25

This year’s 10-week birthday event period should hopefully align with an event you were already planning, or allow you the flexibility to schedule one if the idea just came to you! Birthday events can begin starting July 1st and run all the way to September 8th!

As always, there will be an Attendee Badge and plenty of extras! Get your events on the calendar, package requests in, and artwork suggestions in ASAP, especially if you’re hoping for merchandise, too. As our artists’ schedule starts to fill up, we will move to generic art options to avoid missing out on special event badges.

Return of Eventzee

As stated above, if you choose the Wonderful Winner Event Package, it will include an Eventzee Scavenger Hunt Party Pack! These new packs have all of the challenges created for you, so all you have to do is approve player submissions. Preserve your event for a lifetime with pictures and videos using the ALL NEW* Eventzee app!

Your Eventzee Add-On will include:

  • An Eventzee Party Pack with 20 challenges in a variety of different types.
  • Access to Social features for your hunt, including the photo stream and chat areas.
  • Players at your event will also be awarded an all NEW Eventzee badge for hosts and attendees posted to their Munzee accounts, as well as 500 Munzee points for each active player.

To set up your scavenger hunt the host will need to send their username and the email associated with their new Eventzee account to the Munzee Events Team. The host will then be made an admin of the Eventzee hunt and sent a code to the hunt beforehand along with the badge code.

*Please note that this package will require users to download the new Eventzee app and that these challenges will not count toward the previous Eventzee badges. Players will need to create a new Eventzee account if they have not already set one up in the new app.


Lastly, if you’re new to hosting, or if it’s been a while, you may want to check out our dedicated Help Guide section — we have articles that will walk you through every step of the way!

We’re looking forward to celebrating 10 years of this crazy game, and you, the players, who’ve kept it alive for so long!

Munzee on!

Event Spotlight: Munzee in the Park – Katandra West

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 Munzee in the Park – Katandra West event, which took place on January 9, 2021 at Katandra West, Australia and was hosted by Rubik80, SpySmurf, and SammyDiddly.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

Katandra West is a small rural community just out of Shepparton who recently got a brand new mobile phone tower which finally enabled us to host an event there (we had been asked to do so in 2018). We have created an event at their Recreation Reserve to promote Munzee and its benefits to the local community.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

When we host our Munzee in the Park events we have a number of considerations that we evaluate. Because we are representing both the game of Munzee and our local council, we try to make it fun, friendly and safe. For these reasons, we try to pair new players up with experienced players to show them the basics and also to create new friendships. We select our event location based on where we can create multiple walking circuits that have minimal risks (such as road crossings, uneven tracks or snakes) and allow people to choose how far they wish to walk based on their individual fitness or time constraints. It’s a bonus if food, toilets and first aid are available for participants also. In order to continue attracting players we try to create badges that reflect the unique characteristics of the communities we visit and make a bonus badge available if they attend all events in our Munzee in the Park series. If you get new players to attend, give them some physical munzees to get them started too!

What made your event unique?

For the last four years we have volunteered to host Munzee events on behalf of our local council’s Activities in the Park Program. The program provides a range of free and low-cost activities for Greater Shepparton residents and visitors, encouraging people to be outdoors, physically active and engaging with their community. We take Munzee to some of the smaller communities for a number of reasons, including:

  1. Greater access to activities for the people in the local communities because it reduces travel times and costs.
  2. It provides a small tourism boost.
  3. It builds the local Munzee map should they wish to become regular players.
  4. It increases awareness of Munzee across our community which in turn promotes acceptance of people “photographing power poles” which might otherwise look suspicious.

This year’s events are also unique because of the Covid-19 Safety measures we have to undertake.

The major focus of our Munzee in the Park events is to introduce new players to Munzee and in order to get the word out there we do quite a lot of promotional work on Facebook, local radio, newspaper and through our council publications.

Event Spotlight: Raision syksy

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 Raision syksy event, which took place on November 6, 2020 at Raisio, Finland and was hosted by tcguru, RePe, and kilpertti.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

We have arranged normally four events every year in Turku, Finland, area. It’s not a very large area, but we have almost 50 more or less active players. Good locations for events have already all been used, these days we must think creatively. Neighbor cities and towns of Turku such as Kaarina, Lieto and Raisio are good for now, only they also are loaded with Munzees these days! Would be nice to find a location on which players could deploy for example Prize Wheel Munzees, but it has become more and more difficult. This was number 3 out of four events in Raisio this year, and was quite a success, we had over 40 visitors! The time of the event was obviously well chosen, it was on a Friday afternoon – early evening. Event #1 at the Easter time had a virtual garden (Chameleon), and this event #3 had another, smaller garden (Mushrooms). We are thankful to all players who have helped us with these gardens, Mushrooms is already full and Chameleon almost.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

Plan ahead, and try to find every time something new. The Chameleon garden had one feature I’ve never seen before: most of the virtuals there are of colors the deployers have chosen out of few alternatives, there was a dropdown on the spreadsheet for each consisting of the colors that were possible on that location. This way a real chameleon formed!

Also try to get some little more scarce game pieces on the event area if possible, for example now the greetings cards attached to the Holiday Card Collectors Club campaign are such. Prize Wheels and Sir Prize Wheel Munzees are favorites of many players, if you can deploy these on the event site many players are happy.

If you can get a visitor or two from out of town or even from another country / state, such players that are not normally seen in that area, then many local players would be pleased. This would mean for example Personal Munzees many have not scanned before, and it’s always nice talking to players you don’t see that often. Most players are really nice folks!

What made your event unique?

One of the hosts, RePe, came up with an idea of a badge design for all the events in this series of Raisio events. The Easter event was on spring time, then we had a summer event, this Halloween event in fall, and on Dec 5 we are having the final event, almost winter time here. All four seasons appear on the same image of a tree, and the badges are designed so that the current season is in all colors, while the other three are grayscale. This way a series of four badges is formed, which is visually very nice.  Another remarkable thing about this event was the huge amount of greeting card Munzees deployed on the area. It was awesome, we had never seen this kind of an amount in Finland before. Thank you everyone who deployed cards for this event!

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

Raision joulu (#4 in the series of these 4) on Dec 5 on the same area.

Thank you to tcguru for being such a great host and submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!

Event Spotlight: Scrooged at Central Market

Earlier in the year we featured Primdahl’s Covid-19 Påske Special event, which had some great tips on how to plan and hold events in the current situation. Now that it’s been half a year since then, and the situation hasn’t really changed, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit those tips and also get some more! denali0407 has a wealth of information written for you here, so we greatly appreciate the time and effort she took to share! Also, don’t forget about the new Christmas Event Greeting Cards and Candy Cane Gardens we posted about last month, which might make setup a bit more convenient! And now, without further ado…

Today we’re featuring the Scrooged at Central Market event, which took place on December 6, 2018 at Fort Worth, TX and was hosted by denali0407, Roogles, Werewulf, and Brandikorte.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

“Scrooged at Central Market” was our Christmas 2018 event and featured one of my favorite badges ever (thanks, Trish!). Working within the madness of the Christmas season, this one was scheduled for a Thursday evening at a tried-and-true event site (where chocolate covered cherries can be found – and what event cannot be made better with chocolate covered cherries, I ask you?).

(Brief. You said brief, and I [mostly] delivered. Hallelujah!)

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

Provide something for attendees to DO! Eventzee is ideal, especially when your clues tie into both the event site AND other attendees. Clues that entice players to interact with each other, and even to work together to figure out the necessary photos to stage, make it easy for people to get to better know their fellow players. Or to spend some silly time with the folks they already know and love. Either way works. The more outrageous the clues, the better the stories when people regroup!

Also provide fresh Munzees to cap. Virtual gardens work great, but it’s also a really good idea to blanket the area with physical Munzees when possible. If you place your event Munzees among the physical Munzees, the payoff for both attendees and deployers is even greater.

Plan early, when and if possible, and spread the word far and wide. Even tiny events can become the stuff of legend when you can manage to draw folks from all over the area. Catching up with seldom-seen faces is priceless. But those folks need advance notice, so do them a solid and give them an early heads-up.

Bear in mind the time of year and the likely weather you’ll face, and make necessary provisions. If it’s 7th level of hell hot, then water. And shade. And sunscreen. If it’s a blustery 42° (hey, that’s frigid for us here!), then move indoors. We typically like to have restaurants available, preferably with outside seating. (We liked to provide opportunities to social distance before it was The Thing To Do.) Corners and nooks and tables for two are an introvert’s dream. Adapt to the occasion and people will rise to that occasion!

What made your event unique?

This “Scrooged at Central Market” event all but created itself when a line from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol randomly came to mind: “If I could work my will, every idiot who goes around with ‘Merry Christmas’ on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!” From that, the badge was born, and everything else fell into place. Central Market is a grocery store with upstairs seating, outside seating, and Christmas displays galore. It seemed a natural fit for our needs.

This was one of our smaller events, which made it more intimate and cozy. We were able to use some of the time not just to socialize, but also to plan for some rather larger upcoming events in the area. Teamwork. It’s a beautiful thing.

We also tried something different that could really only work with a small event. Attendees were provided pen and paper and were asked to write down something they liked* about at least two of their fellow Munzeers (we were all fairly well familiar with each other, you see) and then surreptitiously, anonymously place it in the appropriate person’s candy dish (I say that like it was a thing of porcelain beauty – um, it was a red Solo cup) to find and digest later, with their sweets.

*All part of our ongoing efforts to, “Give me an occupation or I shall go mad!” (Bonus points to you, if you can name that movie.)

The Eventzee for Scrooged was particularly sublime (thanks to a brilliant co-host). It included various displays and items located throughout the event site and made for some interesting debate about loopholes, intent, and the spirit of the thing, post-event debriefing in the parking lot (the best events *do* have post-event chatter in the parking lot that goes on long after the venues close for the night, of course!)

I would be remiss if I did not mention that the weather for this particular event seemed sent from Scrooge himself: it stormed. Naturally. I say this because I feel I can never thank those folks enough who braved rush hour traffic in the pouring rain to get themselves to this event (hey, thanks again, guys!). [There. That should do it. Maybe?]

{You didn’t specify brief. This is all your fault.}

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

We look forward to chatting loudly at each other from separate picnic tables and looking each other over to make sure we still appear to be (“appear,” being the key word) halfway sane(ish) after our long absence from this thing we used to know as a social life. On the plus side, who can tell we’ve aged 10 years in the last 8 months, when we’re 50′ apart? Silver linings, I tell ya. They’re a thing. A thing we aim to enjoy.

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1603381733/

This is our Ode to 2020, AKA the dumpster fire in which we are fully engaged at present. There will be the makings of an aptly designed garden for us to cap (feel free to deploy, and we’ll cap the tar out of them. Thanks!). We’ll also have at least a dozen physical event Munzees to cap. Think “little fires everywhere,” if you lean towards visualization. Who knew that 150′ proximity between event Munzees would one day be ideal? And to think we used to grumble. Now we respect what Munzee teaches us about distancing.

Attendees will be asked to kindly wear masks and if that doesn’t suit, then feel free to visit the site at any point during the week this event will be live. We will also have the usual hand sanitizers, spare masks, etc. for those folks willing to brave the presence of other (socially distanced) humans. The non-human kind need not be masked. Yes, dogs are welcome. Ferrets. Iguanas. Whatever comfort pet you’ve adopted during this siege. Bring ’em on. Show ’em off. Forgive us if we do not get close enough to pet. Maybe next time for that touchy, huggy thing we used to take for granted.

Meanwhile, attendees who take photos on the pink event indicator may just find themselves surprised by a little something post-event. Yes, we may just bribe – uh, *entice* – attendees to be social in different ways. Throw it out there, see what sticks, right?

Together we’ll figure out how to navigate these funky times in which we are a’livin’ and cap ourselves some Munzees along the way, yes? Yes!

Thank you to denali0407 for being such a great host and submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!
