Best Dressed Christmas Event Contest Details!

Let’s see that winter western wear! 

Our Ho Ho Hoedown Christmas events will be kicking off in less than two weeks! So as you’re all preparing to host and attend your festive Munzee Events we wanted to offer some more details about our Best Dressed competition!

In previous years we’ve asked players to show up in their dodgiest jumpers and one lucky attendee would be chosen winner by the host of that event. Well this year we’re shaking it up a bit in hopes to spread the word about our Ho Ho Hoedowns! 

In order to earn this year’s Best Dressed badge you’ll need to share an image of yourself at a Munzee Event in a holiday outfit. Whether that’s a dodgy jumper, a festive Father Christmas getup, or even a superb Snowman suit is entirely up to you! We’ll accept submissions through Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter! In order to win you have to include your username, the event name/location, the hashtag #HoHoHoedown, and tag Munzee. Please note that Christmas events don’t start until December!

As long as you follow the rules and put forth some effort, you’ll be awarded the Best Dressed Christmas badge. This year’s Best Dressed Winners will be awarded this badge featuring the most Christmassy Cowboy in town! 

We’ll share some of our favorite player outfits to the official Munzee social media pages throughout December, but the badge will not be awarded until after the month has wrapped up. Then we’ll add all of the winners to a gallery on the Munzee Blog to announce when the badge has been awarded! 

Don’t forget there’s still time to purchase Christmas Event Packages, but Trish’s diary is filling up so if you want custom artwork you better act fast! We’ve got an exciting month ahead of us, so stay tuned for more holiday shenanigans soon! 

Munzee on and Merry Christmas!

Christmas Event packages will be available in the Freeze Tag Online Store as of the publication of the blog. However, they are only applicable to events occurring from December 1 to December 31. It’s important to purchase a package as soon as possible so that you can let us know your art request if you’re purchasing a package containing a badge and icon.

Each package features a unique host badge for themed fun, with each badge (pictured above) depending on which package is purchased. The package options are:

All packages also contain an Attendee Badge. You can include an Emerald add on for $20*, an option available for any of the 4 packages.

These packages can only be applied to events taking place in October!

Munzee Community Gives Back to North Texas Food Bank!

Munzee is awesome for many reasons, but the players are certainly one of the best parts! Our recent Bash weekend started things off in the best way possible with a community food drive donation! We asked players to bring food donations to Bash Registration  for us to donate to the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB).

Members of the North Texas Food Bank arrived at MHQ to pick up all of the player donations collected at Bash

Players then earned a spin on the IRL Prize Wheel for every 4 canned food items or 1 jar of peanut butter they brought, for a maximum of 3 spins per player. It was a win-win situation that created fun for all while giving back to an excellent cause. And thanks to player generosity, we’re happy to announce that we collected an impressive stack of donations!

Together we collected a total of 369 necessary food item donations! They included:

  • 83 jars of peanut butter
  • 277 cans of food
  • 9 bags of rice and oatmeal

In addition to the food donations, a $600 monetary donation was also made out to the NTFB on behalf of Freeze Tag. Funds for this donation were gathered from a portion of profits from our Peony garden pins ($500) and Peony Personal tags ($100). A big thank you goes out to all players who brought food items or supported the donations through their Peony purchases!

North Texas Food Bank

The NTFB is a local social benefit organization that distributes donated food to North Texans in need. In North Texas, 1 in 6 people don’t have a reliable source of daily food. Every dollar donated to the NTFB is able to provide three meals to families, children, and seniors in North Texas. These nutritious meals are distributed with the support of the community, so the money earned from the Peony sales will personally bring 1,800 meals to North Texans in need!

Thanks again for helping us support this awesome cause! We love seeing what can happen when our community comes together.

Munzee on!

Peanut butter is one of the most requested NTFB donation items.

MedZEEval Times Recap! Looking Back at MHQ Bash 2019

It’s officially been 2 weeks since players joined us for the start of MedZEEval Times weekend, and we’re still basking in the social success of MHQ Bash  6! Whether you’re already ready to take a trip down memory lane for this medieval-themed weekend, or you want to check out the fun we had in North Texas, this Bash recap is a wonderful way to showcase some Munzee memories!

If these pictures are making you feel left out because you weren’t able to join us this year, fear not! We announced at the end of Bash that next year’s MHQ Bash 7 will take place from Sept 25-27, 2020! That means it’s time to mark your calendars for some unforgettable future fun!

MHQ Bash Registration

Things started off on September 27 as we opened the doors to players for MHQ Bash Registration on Friday evening. Our first event of the weekend saw players meet up, check in, pick up purchases, shop our pop-up store, receive MHQ office tours, and earn prizes! The IRL Prize Wheel was present, with players earning a spin (for a maximum of 3 spins per player) for every 4 food items or 1 jar of peanut butter they brought as a part of our joint donation to the North Texas Food Bank.

Players were welcome to join us at all events for free with the Court Jester package, though there was the option to pre-order the King’s Court package. Players who purchased this package were able to pick up the following items:

  • Name Tag and Lanyard
  • Clan War Bag
  • T-Shirt
  • 2 Blast Caps
  • Munzee Magnet and Virtual Magnet
  • Special Edition Munzee Foam Sword commemorative item
  • A new in-game item that attendees will be the first to receive once released

While plenty of Texans joined us at MHQ for the festivities, we were thrilled to have players travel in from all parts of the country and world to celebrate Munzee with the international Freeze Tag Team. We concluded the night by drawing names for some additional IRL Prize Wheel spins, which saw the addition of two lucky players winning tickets to join us at Medieval Times in Dallas the following evening for dinner and a show, as well as a variety of other prizes being handed out. Players also had the opportunity to participate in an Eventzee photo scavenger hunt.

Knight’s Armor Eventzee Fun

Eventzee was in the spotlight on Saturday morning as players joined us in the Village at Fairview for an Eventzee hunt that saw players scouting out staff members holding various parts of the Knight’s Armor, as well as Clan Weapons, around the North Texas shopping center. Rob, Tamara, Craig, Mari, Guilherme, and Daniel spread out with pieces of the Knight’s Armor, while Louise, Mick, and Matt were stationed with Clan Weapons. Eventzee players traveled throughout the shopping center to snap photos for a fun morning of exercise and socialization that was followed by WallaBee‘s WallaBash afternoon celebration. And that was only half the fun for many Munzee players on day 2 of Bash!

A Night with Knights

In addition to the free Court Jester package and priced King’s Court package, players were also able to pre-purchase the package add-on of A Night with Knights. This granted them full access to joining us at Medieval Times in Dallas for a medieval times themed dinner and show that featured horse riding, jousting, and medieval immersion fun. A four-course meal was also included with purchase, which wrapped up day 2 of MedZEEval Times weekend.

Storm the Castle Eventzee Fun

Our final event took place on Sunday morning as we hosted our second Eventzee hunt of the weekend with our Storm the Castle fun run. Players enjoyed a sunny day in Russel Creek Park in Plano as they traveled around to the Eventzee Battlements (Tamara), WallaBee Wall (Robbie), Munzee Castle (Daniel), and Freeze Tag Fortress (Mari) for some photo hunt fun. Thankfully the Texas heat was a bit more forgiving, and players and staff alike were able to close out a successful weekend with sunshine, exercise, and smiles.

In addition to the scheduled events, players had the opportunity to meet up, socialize, and explore the area to earn an enormous amount of points. Thanks to the placement of special gardens, such as the Pink Peony, players from around the world were able to join in on the fun and earn CapOn points, as well as shop our worldwide weekend sale and enjoy the Knight’s Armor specials on the map!

Thanks again to everyone who came out to join in on the fun! We can’t wait to see what fun 2020 has in store for Bash in addition to all the events and fun along the way. In the meantime, players can get in on some scary fun socialization by enjoying the Halloween Event Packages!

Munzee on!

A Special Gift for Munzee Players!

Starting tomorrow at 10:00 MHQ time, players who captured a She Said YES bouncing munzee special in August will be awarded one munzee in a special Pink Peony virtual garden! At the same time, there will be an opportunity to purchase a limited quantity of open Peony garden spots from the Freeze Tag Online Store. A portion of these sales will also go to the North Texas Food Bank! Read on to learn more!

A Special Gift

It all started with a special garden! To help Rob pull off one more surprise for Louise, player denali0407 put her garden creating skills to great use to craft a special Pink Peony garden near the Sunday morning MHQ Bash 6 event. The idea behind the garden was to deploy one pin for every person who captured the She Said YES specials in order to surprise Louise with her favorite flower. With over 3,000 captures of the specials, the garden design needed to be quite large, accounting for many of the special Pink Peony colored pins. The garden pins will be awarded tomorrow beginning at 10:00 MHQ time to all players who capped at least one of the She Said YES specials. With 3000+ to be deployed it may take a bit of time for you to see it in your deployed list if you earned one.

There are also a limited quantity of around 500 Pink Peony garden pins available for purchase at 10:00 MHQ tomorrow! You’ll have to act fast to be part of this opportunity, so be sure to keep this link handy for when it goes live! Each spot in the garden will cost $2, with no player purchasing limit. Similar to an Emerald Virtual Garden, you can purchase the pins in the Freeze Tag store and it will automatically be deployed in this garden.

We’ll be donating $500 from the Pink Peony garden pin proceeds to the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB)! As Bash attendees are aware, we’re using this year’s event as an opportunity to join forces with players to give back to the NTFB. Bash attendees will earn 1 spin on the IRL Prize Wheel for every 4 “requested” canned food items they bring to Bash Registration, and now more players will have the chance to give to a good cause. So even if you can’t make it to Texas for MHQ Bash, you can still help families in need by purchasing a Pink Peony garden pin!

It’s sure to be a jam-packed weekend of fun and more surprises for players worldwide!

Munzee on!

Weapons Weekend

This month is all about MedZEEval Times, so be sure to stock up on as many Clan Weapons as you can before the big weekend!

PLUS something special will be going on with all Unicorn and Dragon Mythological Munzee Variants during Bash weekend, so be sure to stay tuned! 

We want everybody around the world to showcase their warrior prowess, so expect some more announcements as the month goes on. Although we’ll have a handful of warriors with us in person at MHQ Bash, the rest of the world should prepare for battle, too! And, of course, even though our event packages are no longer for sale, you can RSVP on the event calendar anytime to join in on the fun in person!

And while all of this might be getting you excited, we do have one final bit of news to share…

Clan Wars Update!

The development team has been hard at work on a brand new update to the Munzee app that will take the Clan Wars experience to a whole new level! While we’re not revealing all of the fun details just yet, we will begin beta testing very soon. So if you’re part of the beta testing group, stay tuned for more info!

Stay tuned for Clan Wars updates!

The fun is just getting started!

Munzee on!
