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.

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.

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.

These events are sure to be a great time, but you never know what else might pop up throughout the year.

We hope you’ll join us at various points in the year!

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!

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!
