UK Events Reminder

Howdy, everyone!

We just wanted to remind you that Rob and Louise will be attending two events this weekend in the UK (this one and this one)! They will also be taking a trip to cap the newest Emerald Garden in Richmond Park on Friday. There are still plenty of Emerald Pins available in the Freeze Tag Online Store and time to get one before they get capped!

There is also a growing number of Flat Lous in the area, so make sure to add your own. Flat Robs and Flat Lous are both currently active on the map and Flat Matt will be active on Saturday!

We hope you’re having a great week, and we look forward to announcing some fun new things soon!

Munzee on!

Ready To Ride with Flat Lou?

UPDATE: Flat Lou is now for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Go HERE to get yours! 

Our Flat friends, Flat Rob and Flat Matt, have become a staple of the game and we’re excited to announce a certain flat female is joining their ranks- say hello to Flat Lou!

Three years ago Louise Gibson took over the management of our worldwide player run events. She streamlined the process, improved communication, and provided excellent customer service around the clock in her first few weeks. Over the course of her three years Louise has interacted with hundreds of different player hosts, managing over 1500 unique events.  After three years as an extraordinary Events Manager, she has more than earned her spot among her two-dimensional pals.

The first Flat Lou will be released as a permanent special at Tower Bridge in London, England on May 1st at 15:00 MHQ and they’ll go on sale at the same time in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Flat Lous work much like the other Flats, but there are some differences.

As a not-so-flat-footed cyclist, Flat Lous will be activated at various times including when Louise is racing, when she attends Munzee events, major event seasons and more. Please note that all scheduled times are based on MHQ time and are subject to change. To start things off with a bang though, Flat Lous will be active for the entire month of May.

Another thing that makes Flat Lou so special is that she helps give back too! In connection to Freeze Tag’s sponsorship of the American Diabetes Association, $0.25 of each Flat Lou sale will be donated to ADA to help diabetes research and awareness. Flat Lous will also be active during each Tour de Cure race weekend throughout the year as well.

Flat Lou virtual pieces will be for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store tomorrow for $4.25, and there will also be a limited amount of the Flat Trio design Personal Munzee tags too. Premium members can also expect a free Flat Lou tomorrow at 17:01 MHQ as well. You can sign up for a Premium Membership at HERE.

Here is the general breakdown of Flat Lous:

Points:

Deploy – 19 Points
Cap/CapOn – Split 78 points with a minimum of 10 points.

Proximity: 

Flat Lous’ proximity is not affected by other munzees except other Flats. Flat Lous 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 Lous.

Deploy Badges:

Capture Badges:

We’re also excited to announce that we’re launching a new emerald garden at Louise’s favorite training site- Richmond Park in London! The roads around the park even make a pin shape too! Check out the map HERE. You can purchase one of the emerald garden pins, Flat Lous, and personal tags in the Freeze Tag Online Store tomorrow, May 1st at 15:00 MHQ.

The ceLOUbration continues around the world with special player-run Louise Gibson Appreciation Society (LGAS) events throughout May. These events have been entirely set up by player hosts to show their appreciation for Louise’s event management efforts. Find the LGAS events on the Munzee Calendar page, and let them know if you’d like to join in the fun!

Thank you all for showing our Flat friends so much love! We know Flat Lou will make a great addition to the family. Munzee on!

Earth Day Charity Fundraiser Special!

April 22nd is Earth Day, and we’re getting in on the celebration a little early with our newest charity special fundraiser! These “colorful” specials will help you temporarily grow the Munzee map and help make the real world a greener, healthier place! A portion of the funds raised from this campaign will be donated to an Earth Day charity to be announced at a later date.

Beginning now (10:00 MHQ Time on Thursday, March 29th), virtual Earth Day Evolution Munzees are available for purchase for $1/each (limit 50 per account) in the Freeze Tag Online Store. These Evolution Munzees have three stages: Seed, Seedling, and Tree.

We want to see these trees in full bloom by Earth Day, so these will work a little different than usual Evos. Unlike other Evolution Munzees, the Seed and Seedling stages will evolve after 12 days. So if you deploy your Earth Day Evolution Munzee TODAY it will be fully evolved in time for Earth Day on April 22nd.

The points for the Earth Day Evolution Munzees are as follows:

  • Deploy: 25
  • Capture: 15, 20, and 25 respectively based on evolution stage
  • CapOn: 10, 15, and 20 respectively based on evolution stage

These munzees have a 300ft capture radius and are blastable. They are affected by all other types and can be placed 50ft from other players’ munzees and 150ft from your own munzees.

There are six badges that can be earned for this special:

  • Green Gardner – Deploy 1 Earth Day Evolution Munzee
  • Evergreen Artist – Deploy 5 Earth Day Evolution Munzees
  • Colorful Capture: Seed – Capture 1 Earth Day Evolution Seed Munzee
  • Colorful Capture: Seedling – Capture 1 Earth Day Evolution Seedling Munzee
  • Colorful Capture: Tree – Capture 1 Earth Day Evolution Tree Munzee
  • Colorful Capping! – Capture at least 1 of each Earth Day Evolution Munzee Stage

This special will end at 23:59 MHQ time on May 13th, and all deploys will be archived regardless of the stage they have reached.


We also have a limited number of Earth Day Charity Special Personal Munzees available.

These Personals are metal dog tags and are priced at $10/each.


In connection with the Go Green events happening all throughout the month, we also wanted to add another activity to join in the fun. To coincide with the “colorful” crayon designs of these icons and badges, we’re releasing PDF coloring book pages of the designs. We want to see your artistic interpretation so send pictures of your finished work to iloveyou@munzee.com and we’ll periodically share some of our favorites. Bring copies to your Go Green events and showcase how colorful your group of players is!

You can download the PDFs of the pages HERE, HERE, and HERE!

We hope you enjoy this special!

Munzee on and Go Green!

Introducing the new Temporary Virtual!

We’re excited to announce a new product called the Temporary Virtual! This new virtual item would allow players to deploy in areas that would usually not be beneficial to place a more expensive game piece or to help other players hit goals.

Much like Flat Robs and Flat Matts. these new items will be on a new layer of the map, so you don’t have to worry about trying to deploy in areas that are already overrun with other munzees. This will be especially helpful for deploying at high profile events like Munzee Madness this weekend in Southern California!

These new items are currently for sale in the Munzee Online Store and available on Quick Deploy as of 10:00 MHQ!

Check out the stats below to learn more! **Particularly take note of how long you have to deploy these before they are auto-archived.

Temporary Virtual

Points
Deploy: 30
Cap/CapOn: Split 75 with a minimum of 25

Blastable

Capture Radius

Proximity Rules

Additional Info

  • **These will expire 30 days after PURCHASE — so think carefully about when you buy them in order to deploy them at a good time
  • There is a timer to show expiration online and in-app (like Myths/Nomads/etc)
  • Myths, Nomads or any virtual specials will NOT land on these

We love that our worldwide community works together to help one another reach their goals, whether that’s Clan Wars, ZeeOps, Events or something else entirely. We think the new Temporary Virtual will be a great tool for helping us all grow the game- even if it’s temporarily!

Thank you all for everything you do. Munzee on!

Go Green Munzee Events!

The time has come to reveal the plans for the next lot of Munzee Event Packages! We are inviting you to host Go Green Munzee Events all over the world. Would only be right to kick off these events with the King of Green, St Patrick himself, on Saturday 17th March and run them all the way through Easter and on to Earth Day on Sunday 22nd April.

We would love to see Munzee events encouraging green initiatives such as getting outside, picking up litter and wearing green. In fact, there will be a badge for the winner of the Go Green Competition at each Munzee event during this period. The host needs to send a photo and the player name to me after the event of the attendee that wears the most green clothing.

The packages for these Go Green Events are as follows:
The Seeds Package – Basic event + no proximity = $30
The Sapling Package
– The Seeds Package + 5 Mystery virtuals = $35
The Tree Package
– The Sapling Package + Badge & Icon = $135
The Forest Package
– The Tree Package + Eventzee = $185

Add an Emerald for attendees to any Go Green event for $20

First step is to get your events on the calendar here and let me know your order once your event has been published.

I look forward to working with you and seeing you all Go Green!

Thank you and Munzee On!

International “Thank You” Day Specials!

Rob realized writing individual “Thank You” notes to everyone wasn’t exactly feasible, so we decided to go in a different direction. In celebration of International Thank You Day, we’re proud to announce we’re celebrating in the best way possible: By sending out “Thank You” cards! Over the next few days you’ll be able to capture “Thank You” note specials from Louise, Rob and Matt.

“Thank You” cards from Louise, Matt and Rob!

The International Thank You Day specials will go live on the map at 00:01 Thursday January 11th and last through 23:59 on Sunday January 14th. There will be 1,000 of each of the icons (3,000 in total) bouncing on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. When you cap any of these icons, you will earn 18 points, and the owner of the host munzee will earn 11 points.

We know what you’re thinking: What good is a “Thank You” card if you can’t read what’s inside? Well when you capture one of the icons you’ll also earn the badge for that “Thank you” note and get to see what the cards says. Will you be able to capture all three?

Per usual these will also count toward the Special Hunter badge line, so be sure to cap as many as you can! You can capture these specials on your own munzees and they will all be attracted to Magnets.

Thank you once again to our awesome community of players! We couldn’t do all of this without you and we’re so thankful to have you as a part of our game. Now get out and Munzee on, because #TheTimeIsNow!
