Christmas Events!

It’s that time again! We have just completed the Halloween events so now it’s time to start thinking about Christmas events. This year we are focussing on the Days of Christmas and these special packages are available for events throughout the whole of December.

Please get your events on the calendar and let me know which package you’d like. Each one has a unique host badge:

  • Partridge in a Pear Tree – Basic event and no proximity restrictions – $30
  • Two Turtle Doves – Partridge plus 20 virtuals – $50
  • Three French Hens – Turtle Doves plus badge and icon – $150
  • Four Calling Birds –  French Hens plus Eventzee – $200

We have something very exciting instead of the Emerald giveaway. It’s $20 per event, as usual, but the details will be shared during November. It’s going to be a fun addition attendees will love!

There is a badge to be won at each event for the “Most Christmassy Attendee” too. So dust off your dodgy jumpers or full on Santa costumes! The host will let me know who the winner is and you will feature on the blog.

This is the Attendee Badge that everyone will get and Father Christmas will be paying you a visit too!

So get those events on the calendar, orders in and artwork requests in nice and early please. As Trish’s diary fills up we will have to move to generic artwork.

If you’ve never hosted a Munzee event before don’t worry, I will guide you through the whole process and I look forward to working with you. If you’ve hosted before I look forward to working with you again!
Munzee On!

ZOMBIE OUTBREAK UPDATE!

The following is an official announcement from Zombie Emergency Engagement (Z.E.E.) officials. Please note that this is not a test. Repeat, this is not a test.

THE ZOMBIE OUTBREAK IS SPREADING AT RAPID RATES!

Despite the efforts of our worldwide community we’re seeing rapid growth of the viral outbreak that has been plaguing the game over the last week. Based on our research of the Zombies’ evolving genetic code, 68 new Zombies are being created every 6 hours. It will take every bit of fight we have to to survive this onslaught before Zee-Day on October 31 at 23:59 MHQ. If we can just make it to that point, we may be able to save humanity.

To commemorate the battles of the Zombie Apocalypse, the Freeze Tag Online Store is offering Personal Munzee Tags with a Zombie Hunter design. Per usual these are in limited quantity so get yours before they run out!

You can purchase Zombie Outbreak Personal Tags here:
https://store.freezetag.com/products/personal-munzee

Good luck on your Zombie hunting, despite the increased outbreak we know we can survive this if we work together!

Munzee on!

MH-BOO Bash Worldwide Badges!

We want the whole world to celebrate MH-BOO Bash with us, even if you can’t make it to McKinney, TX! We’ve got two exclusive badges that you can only earn this weekend. Anyone worldwide can earn these spooky badges as long as you complete the requirements!

These badges will be available from 00:01 on Oct 26 until 23:59 MHQ on Oct 28. Good luck and have fun growing the physical map near you!

We’re so excited to see players in McKinney this weekend, but to those who can’t attend we hope you’ll be there in spooky spirit! Don’t forget Z.E.E. still needs your protection from the Zombie outbreak too, so you’ll have your hands full. There also might be another Halloween event near you so be sure to check out the Events Calendar!

Munzee on!

Gallop away with Flat Hammock!

The Flat Friends are about to make a new pal! Flat Rob, Flat Matt, and Flat Lou will have to watch their gameplay, because the ban hammer is knocking- welcome the all new Flat Hammock!

This new game piece is based on the one-man wrecking crew Daniel Hammock, who has been running Munzee Support for 5 years. No one at MHQ can think of a time when they’ve actually called him Daniel, or Danny as his family calls him. He’s always affectionately been known as Hammock. Although he started off as a player, in Hammock’s own words, his “dream came true” when he was given “the opportunity of a lifetime” to work for Munzee. Even before officially joining MHQ, Hammock always took it upon himself to help out the Munzee community with any and all issues that would arise. He is best known within the community for swinging the ban hammer, punishing all those who break the code of conduct. To those who know him well he’s a fluffy unicorn of a guy who is very kind and giving. In his free time he enjoys taking his family out for crazy Youtube adventures for the Munzee Monthly Giveaway and giving away prizes each month for players to enjoy. He’s also an avid fan of unicorns, if the Flat Hammock design didn’t make that very apparent.

The first Flat Hammock has been released as a permanent special in Gettysburg, PA. Players will normally be able to purchase their own Flat Hammocks in the Freeze Tag Online Store for $4. In celebration of our new Flat Friend though all Flat Munzees will be discounted! Remember that Flat Friends are not always on sale, so stock up while you can!

The Flat Friends Sale will last until Friday at 15:00 MHQ:

  • Hammock: $3.75- originally $4
  • Rob: $3.75- originally $4
  • Louise: $4 (with $0.25 still going to charity)- originally $4.25
  • Matt: $4.75- originally $5

Players with a Premium Membership will also receive one free Flat Hammock as well.

Like the other Flat Friends, Flat Hammock has a unique release schedule. Hammock may love working for Munzee, but he keeps busy with a variety of other jobs as well. Like other Flats he will choose when Flat Hammocks are available on the map, which will be during his working hours, major event seasons and more. Please note that all scheduled times are based on MHQ time and are subject to change. Since we’re in the middle of Halloween events though, all Flat Friends are on the map until the end of the month and Flat Hammock will join in the fun too!

Here is the general breakdown of Flat Hammocks:

Points:

Deploy – 19 Points
Cap/CapOn – Split 80 points with a minimum of 10 points.

Proximity: 

Flat Hammocks’ proximity is not affected by other munzees except other Flats. Flat Hammocks must be 50ft from other players’ deploys and 150ft from your own deploys.

You’ll also be able to earn a variety of badges for capturing and deploying Flat Hammocks.

Deploy Badges:

Capture Badges:

Don’t forget about DOUBLE POINT FLAT FRIENDS WEEKEND! On Friday we challenged our players to attend events and capture event pins, and they successfully completed the challenge! There will be double points on all Flat Friends captures and deploys beginning October 26 at 00:01 until October 28 at 23:59. That’s MH-BOO Bash weekend too, so if you’re looking for somewhere to deploy why not check out McKinney, TX! The calendar is also full of events all month long!

Thank you all for your support of the Support Man himself. Our Flat Friends line of munzees would not be possible without the enthusiasm of our players. Of course a huge THANK YOU to Hammock for his dedication to this game. So beware the ban hammer, hug Hammock when you meet him and Munzee On!

Halloween Event Kickoff, Virtual Sale and Community Challenge!

Ghosts and ghouls, something wicked this way comes! Bewitching Lou is flying across the night sky because Halloween Munzee Events officially kick off today! This has been our biggest month ever for Munzee events, so we’re excited to see a big turnout this weekend.

With Halloween Events in overdrive, we want to give you all another opportunity to earn double points on all Flat Friends during MH-BOO Bash Weekend! There are 61 events this weekend alone, so here is your challenge:

The worldwide community will need to capture 500 event indicator pins and 5,000 event pins by 23:59 MHQ on 10/14. We understand that not everyone can make it to events, so we’ll also have a secondary goal for deploying virtual munzees of any type as well. If 2,500 virtuals of any type are deployed throughout the weekend, that can replace one of the other requirements.

Be sure to check the Munzee calendar to find an event near you. Deploy virts at events as well to better your chances, support other players, and gain ! We have a handful of virtual items on sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

  • Amethyst: $3 (originally $4)- BUY HERE
  • Emerald: $8 (originally $10)- BUY HERE
  • MVM: $3.75 (originally $4.50)- BUY HERE
  • Surprise: $3.75 (originally $4.50)- BUY HERE

Just a reminder that the point increase for Event Munzees is now effective as well!

  • Event pins are now worth 10 points each
  • Event Indicator Pins are now worth 100 points each
  • Event Badges are now worth 500 points
  • CoExist Munzees are now worth 200 points

We hope you all have a howling good time for the rest of the month and we can’t wait to see some of you at MH-BOO Bash! We might even have some fun tricks, or treats, up our sleeves for the worldwide community too…

Happy hauntings and Munzee on!

 

 

One final reminder for hosts from last month’s blog: All events moving forward will receive 50 event pins and proximity between event pins will be 100 feet. Effective date was October 12.

PSA: Events in October

Howdy Munzee community around the world!

October was already going to be a busy month for events with all of the Halloween events on the calendar! However over the past 4 days many of you have shown your commitment to reaching Level 5 in the Clan Wars in a new way, by hosting events. Due to the overwhelming number, over 130 as of the time of this blog post, I felt it was necessary to give all players a few expectations for events.

Event hosts are important to us at MHQ. You’ve always been a generally smaller audience interacting directly with Louise, our Worldwide Events Manager, and have come to understand our systems. With this new rush of hosts and events we would like to welcome you, and share a few words of wisdom and some expectations.

The first is easy, understand you are not the only host Louise is dealing with. Respect her time and your own by FULLY reading her event creation email because it includes ALL of the information you need to be a successful host.

Second, be prepared in advance. Louise is great and she works at all hours of the day and night, but she may not be able to handle your “emergency” in a timely fashion if you haven’t prepared yourself. Again, most questions she has are covered by the email she sends you with your account details, please read it fully. You can also seek the advice of others who have hosted in the past or work together with others to share the load.

Third, Location Location Location! Events need to be in their own location. You cannot have 2 events in the same place around the same time, otherwise it is considered one event. Have the 2nd event at a later time in another location.

Finally, YOU ARE AN EXTENSION OF MHQ* to any players who attend your events. You could be the first person to introduce someone to this great game! Please understand that event hosts are held to a higher set of rules:

  • Many events have proximity rules lifted so they can deploy physical munzees in crowded areas. This does not give you the right to break the rules and teach others to do the same.
  • All deployments should physically be in the location where the pin is on the map, just like the regular game.
  • No event should have multiple munzees to scan at a single location.
  • No event should be conducted with a sheet of paper with munzees on it to scan as you walk/ride/drive from one location to the next.

The rules of the game are in place for a reason. Event hosts are held to a higher standard and need to set an example for all players. This is an important point for us because you are representing the game of Munzee to a wider audience. YOU are growing the game. We appreciate that very much and ask that you do so respectfully.

Thank you for reading these rules and requests, violations are being dealt with in accordance with the player code of conduct.

Let’s all have a great time in October and maybe we’ll see you at some of the events!

Munzee On!

Rob, President of Freeze Tag Games

*you are figuratively an extension of MHQ. not literally. 😉

And now…

October 2018 Clan Requirements, The Story

It’s September 28, 2018 at 15:05 MHQ Time, the October Clan Requirements have been released for exactly 5 minutes. There are shrieks of delight from some!

*Shriek*

There are groans of misery from others!

*Groan, mumble, mumble*

At MHQ Rob sits, drumming his fingers, watching “The Water Cooler” for some sign of acceptance or rejection of his latest attempt to entertain the masses. But today there isn’t a lot of chatter because the requirements were laid out in 3 formats, enough to please even the most detailed of players. At least that’s what Rob thinks. 😉

All around the world players start to communicate and choose what level they will aim for in October. Some shaking their heads because “THERE ARE NO EVENTS NEAR ME!” so I won’t be able to get the event indicator pins. Others saying they won’t be able to get virtual evolutions because they “JUST CAPPED THEM YESTERDAY WHEN THEY EVOLVED.”

Rob patiently waits for the complaints to become public so he can start reminding players that clans are like families, they help each other out. He thinks, clans are also like underwear, sometimes you have to change them – but he doesn’t say this out loud. He reminds everyone that each level is something to aim for with the higher levels designed to be more challenging and often not designed for a brand new player. It’s best for players to join the game, join a clan, figure everything out, accumulate some credits, buy some stickers, maybe even a Munzpak! 😉 *Shameless plug*

Anyway, one group of players that have played together for the last 27 clan battles decides they are going for LEVEL 5! They know it will be a challenge but they are up for it. One player in New York says they can deploy some of the Scatters needed, but not all 50. Two other players from Finland and Australia say they’ve got enough to help as well. A player from California chimes in and says they know of a prize wheel trail with 10 they can capture but it won’t be enough for the 125 required. One of the German clan members says they have a prize wheel garden just one town over so the prize wheel caps will be easy to get. They notice there are 2 specific requirements that are “per player” and decide to come up with a “battle plan.”

Several of them plan to use one magnet to get their 3 myth caps, others have “myths all over the place every day” and say it will be easy for them. One of the players from England says they are going to have to drive 3 towns up the M4 just to have a spot to deploy their 15 clan weapons because “there’s no room here for anything”. The others laugh because CLEARLY there is always room for one more! 😉

They notice it will take a total of 50 myth caps and 250 Clan weapons deployed to earn rewards at Level 5 and each vows to do their required portion “and then some.” The chat goes on for the next several hours with them discussing each requirement and how they will achieve it.

They compliment Rob, publicly, for finally giving three forms of displaying the requirements. After all, “The Time Is Now”. He’s sure there will be a few mistakes but has publicly vowed to fix them, as he always does, and also to ignore all questions, as he always does. 😉

So, before we close this story, a reminder to all…if it isn’t mentioned specifically then it’s probably excluded on purpose. And YES, CapOn points DO count in October!

Munzee On and Happy Clanning in October!

Announcing ZeeQRew: An Elite Munzee Player Program

Are you ready to join the ranks of the most elite group of Munzee players? We’re excited to introduce the all new ZeeQRew program! It’s up to this crew to help clean up the map and replace any missing munzees as they come across them.

ZeeQRew is a group of dedicated players who will earn, on a bi-monthly basis, a special title with special in game rights. They will also be rewarded for their work and for growing the map.

The requirements for joining ZeeQRew are as follows:

  • Must be a current Premium Member AND
  • have at least 100,000 lifetime points AND
  • have at least 250 physical deploys AND
  • have at least 500 physical captures AND
  • have at least 1 cap and 1 deploy in the last 14 days

Players’ statuses will automatically be checked at 00:01 on the 1st and 15th of each month. If the requirements are met the player will earn or retain the ZeeQRew title. If the requirements are not met the title will be removed from any current ZeeQRew, BUT it may be re-earned at the next checkpoint.

Rewards:

  • ZeeQRew title in app & online
  • The ability to replace any physical Munzee regardless of owner using a generic sticker*
  • Exclusive ZeeQRew badge (pictured below)
  • Access to special products only available to ZeeQRew
    • Unique merchandise
    • Discounted greenies (generic stickers)
    • Additional items and perks as decided by MHQ

The program will officially launch on Friday September 28th, the exclusive products will then launch in early October. When the program begins we ask that any player with concerns about ZeeQRew activity report any issues to support.

We’re excited to finally take the next steps in growing and maintaining the map. We know that members of ZeeQRew will prove to be an integral part of the game and we look forward to all sorts of new opportunities for them. For those that are not currently eligible for ZeeQRew we encourage you all to prove yourselves by accomplishing the requirements. This crew will only grow over time as our game grows!

Good luck and Munzee on!

Fixer Upper Badge

*When a Munzee is replaced a “replaced by” journal entry is made. Abuse of ZeeQRew abilities can result in removal of title and rights permanently.
