We’re giving you plenty of time to mark your calendars and book your flights, because we’re announcing the dates for the Munzee 8th Birthday California celebration earlier than last year! Hosted by members of the Freeze Tag office, the 8th birthday celebration of everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt will take place on Saturday, July 20 in Orange County, California.

Munzee California birthday bash 2018

Staff from both the California and Texas offices will be in attendance for this birthday bash! You can count on Munzee, WallaBee, Eventzee, and ZeeTours activities and more!

Stay tuned for our announcement of the official Birthday Event Packages in the near future. Be sure to get this date on the calendar so we can celebrate Munzee together! And keep your eye out on the event calendar page for updates regarding event details. We’ll be updating you with more information as soon as we can share it!

We hope to see you there!

Munzee on!

April Events Update! Act Fast

The April Events announcement went out a couple of weeks ago, and we have been delighted with the response.

The calendar is filling fast, and so is Trish’s diary! There are still slots available for custom badges and icons but not for much longer. Please get orders and art requests in ASAP, and we will be moving to generic artwork requests only in the next week or so when Trish has run out of slots for custom work!

Munzee On!

It’s Almost Time for Munzee Madness 8! Details, Sales and More!

It’s almost that time of the year again— Munzee Madness season! That’s right, Sunny California is gearing up for the longest running player run events of the year.

To celebrate the event, the entire California Freeze Tag office will be attending Munzee Madness 8! Freeze Tag will also be hosting their own event in conjunction with the Munzee Madness player sponsored events in order to provide double the fun! Even if you can’t make it out to California to attend the events in person, there are still ways to participate from home.

Munzee Madness Details 

Mark your calendars and cancel your plans, because MM8 will take place from Friday, March 8 to Saturday, March 9. You can find the full Munzee Madness schedule at the end of the post. There will be a variety of events for all attendees to participate in!

Are you interested in meeting a portion of the team behind everyone’s favorite global scavenger hunt? The entire Freeze Tag California office will be in attendance, including Craig Holland (Cholland86), Mick Donahoo (fixitman), Mari Rann (Kirikat), and Tamara Sahagun (Raan). There will also be a dinner hosted by Freeze Tag on Saturday night in order to allow players more opportunity to interact with the people behind the scenes after a full day of MM8 Road Rally!

There will be a number of special event badges for players to earn throughout the weekend, as well as an abundance of munzees and specials to capture. No sneak peaks this time! If you want to see the new badge designs, you’ll have to earn them in person…

Virtual Garden Fun for All and Sales!

Whether you can attend the event in person or you’ll be celebrating virtually by playing the game at home, there are a variety of ways you can participate in MM8 regardless of location. We are excited to share the designs of four gardens that will surround the event, so that all players worldwide can earn some CapOn points. Choose from the Craig ParkOde to 1849, Officer Down, or Ode to q22q17 to deploy in! You can access a listing of a number of Virtual Gardens in the area here.

Why limit yourself to deploying in one Garden? In celebration of MM8, we decided to release some special offers in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Previously, Virtual Trail Munzee Credits could only be purchased in packs of five that included five Virtual Munzees as well. Now, we are releasing individual Virtual Trail Munzee Credits that includes one Virtual Trail Credit and no Virtual Munzees!

Our Virtual collection will now include Temporary Virtuals, Virtual Trail Munzee Credits (multiple), and the Virtual Trail Munzee Credit (single). All three of these items will be 19 percent off through Monday, February 25 at 10:00 MHQ time. Deploying in one of these Virtual Gardens is a great way to support the events even if you can’t make it in person!

Have you never deployed in a Virtual Garden before? Don’t worry, we’ve made it easy for you! Check out this step-by-step tutorial to help build a Garden today. All you need to do is purchase some Virtuals, maybe a few Color Credits, and select a garden to start deploying in.

If you can make it out to Cali for the weekend, we’d love to see you! And if you can’t, make sure you join in on the fun virtually! Don’t forget you can host your own Munzee Events as well, and it sounds like April would be a good time to start.

Munzee on!

Each player will also get a prize wheel credit, so not all is lost!

All attendees will receive the following Attendee Badge:

Follow the path with updated Trail Munzee points and more!

Four years ago we released Trail Munzees (after a string of bizarre videos) and now we’re excited to announce a big point and proximity* update for Trail Munzees, Virtual Trail Munzees and Event Trail Munzees! You can find the point breakdown for each type below, as well as some new Trail themed physical products as well. The point updates and new products are all NOW available!

Physical Trail Munzees will be worth many more points than when they were originally released! As you capture the various stops on the Trail Munzee the points you receive will increase as you progress.

  • Stops one and two are worth 50 points for Capture and owner CapOn.
  • Stops three and four are worth 100 points for Capture and owner CapOn.
  • Stop five is worth 300 points for Capture for completing the trail, and 300 points for owner CapOn for creating a good trail.

You will receive 50 points per deploy of a Trail Munzee, but your Trail will not become live until you deploy all five munzees to complete the trail.

We have also reduced the distance required between each stop of the Trail Munzee. Each of the munzees must be deployed within a 5 mile radius of the starting point. Each munzee must be deployed at least 500 ft (previously 1,000 ft) from other Trail Munzees.

Purchase Physical Trail Credits here:
https://store.freezetag.com/products/trail-munzee-credits

Virtual Trail Munzees’ point system has also been updated from when they were originally released! As you cap the Virtual Trail the points you receive will increase as you progress.

  • Stops one and two are worth 15 points for capture and 15 owner cap on.
  • Stop three is worth 30 points for capture and 15 for owner cap on.
  • Stop four is worth 60 points for capture and 15 for owner cap on.
  • Stop five is worth 75 points for capture for completing the virtual trail, and 30 points for owner cap on for creating a good virtual trail that players can complete.

If you choose to continue for stops 6-10 the points will be:

  • Stop six is worth 90 points for capture and 30 owner cap on.
  • Stop seven is worth 125 points for capture and 30 owner cap on.
  • Stop eight is worth 150 points for capture and 50 owner cap on.
  • Stop nine is worth 175 points for capture and 50 owner cap on.
  • Stop ten is worth 200 points for capture and 75 owner cap on.

You will receive 25 points per deploy of a virtual trail Munzee, but your Virtual Trail will not become live until you deploy at least five munzees.

We have also reduced the distance required between each stop of the Virtual Trail Munzee. Each of the munzees must be deployed within a 5 mile radius of the starting point. Each munzee must be deployed at least 500 ft (previously 1,000 ft) from other Virtual Trail Munzees.

Purchase Virtual Trail Credits here:
https://store.freezetag.com/collections/trail-munzees/products/virtual-trail-munzee-credits

Event Virtual Trails will work similarly to regular Virtual Trails. Since Event Trails are part of an event package there are no Deploy or CapOn points, but the Capture points have been updated to match the Virtual Trail Munzee.

The Event Virtual Trail can only be added as a part of Munzee Event packages. For a breakdown of how Event Virtual Trails work check out the updated blog post HERE.

*Please note that the ability to use the new proximity for the sandbox circles on the website map will go live tomorrow at some time. Thank you for your patience.


To celebrate the point update of the Trail Munzees, we’ve got a slew of new trail-themed products and discounted certain products as well! The discounted products will remain on sale until Monday 1/21/2019 at 10:00 MHQ.

MHQ Bash 6 dates and more!

Hey everybody, as 2018 comes to a close we have some announcements for MHQ hosted events in 2019, including MHQ Bash 6, Munzee Madness 8 and more.

These events will include a variety of features to make them bigger than ever before and we want to celebrate with as many of our players as possible. Please keep in mind that there are still many details to line out for these events, but we wanted to give everyone adequate time to plan if they’ll be joining us. 

Munzee Madness 8- March 2019

We will be hosting a dinner on March 9, 2019 in conjunction with Munzee Madness 8, an annual weekend of player hosted events in California each Spring. Although this gathering is separate from the planned events of Munzee Madness, we hope that Munzee Madness players will join the Freeze Tag team members for an evening of food, festivities and fun. The event is free to the public and you can RSVP by visiting the event page on the Munzee Calendar.

GeoWoodstock XVII- May 2019

As a continuation of our Coexist Campaign, we will be hosting an event near GeoWoodstock XVII in Fort Worth, TX the weekend of May 25, 2019. GeoWoodstock is primarily a geocaching event, but the mega event has proven to be an ideal opportunity to cross-promote all location-based gaming. No details regarding time and location have been defined yet, but expect more news closer to the event itself.

Stay tuned for more information regarding worldwide Birthday event themes next year.

MHQ Bash 6- September 2019

After the success of MH-BOO Bash in October, we’re excited to announce the dates of the sixth annual MHQ Bash. To accommodate the event season, dates for MHQ Bash 6 have been set for the end of September. MHQ Bash 6 will kickoff on Friday September 27, 2019 with various events throughout the weekend until September 29. Like previous years the Bash will once again take place in North Texas. No specific locations have been chosen yet, but we plan on exploring new areas in the cities surrounding McKinney, TX in the coming months. MHQ Bash 6 attendee packages will go on sale some time next year so stay tuned for more information. Players interested in joining can RSVP by visiting the event page on the Munzee Calendar.
