Event Spotlight: Munzee Madness 9

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the Munzee Madness 9 events, which took place on March 6-7, 2020 at Anaheim, CA and was hosted by q22q17, crawil, and kj6soz.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

The Premier Munzee Event of the Year – Munzee Madness 9 and the longest running Munzee annual event in the world! Munzee Madness is an annual event that celebrates the very first global Munzee event. This is where events were born. Munzee events have evolved from a one time event to weekend extravaganzas, and Munzee Madness is no exception. We’ve hosted Munzee players from around the world who have traveled for the weekend.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

My most important tip, be flexible. Have back up plans for weather interruptions. Smile a lot, try to say hello to everyone. Have name tags with user names and real life first names.

What made your event unique?

Munzee Madness is unique as we have recently turned it into a road rally with multiple events over two days in different locations in Southern California. We have combined family friendly games along with Munzee hunts and have enjoyed several Eventzees as well.

Would you like to highlight any future events you’re hosting?

2020 Dog Days of Summer on August 29th in Fullerton California.

Thank you to q22q17 for being such a great host and submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!

Mail Call at Camp Munzee!

The Camp Competition may be over, but there’s still a bit of time left before Camp Munzee closes for the year! If you’ve made any new friends among your fellow campers, you may want to cement the friendship by deploying something near them, perhaps with your favorite s’mores recipe in the notes!

We are happy to announce the NEW Camp Munzee Greeting Card is now available for purchase! You can pick up Greeting Cards from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. Remember, you receive multiple munzees from your single purchase! Read the details in the store, or see below.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

We have 1 new Limited Edition card for your deploying pleasure!

Relive a summer of fun of with the Camp Munzee Greeting Card!

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific greeting will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

The Camp Munzee Card will be available from now until Camp Munzee events end on September 9. The winners at Camp FrEEZ may have flag cards to show off their victory, but now everybody can show a little camp love!

This brings the current lineup of Greeting Cards available for purchase to the following:

  • Open Edition (will always be available; ONE Purchase yields FOUR munzees)
    • Birthday
    • Get Well
    • Thank You
    • Congrats
    • Sorry
    • Sorry 1
    • Sorry 2
    • Sorry 3
    • Summer
    • Winter
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Stay Home
    • Couch Potato (Only available until August 19th!)
    • Camp Munzee

As a refresher, the point structure for Greeting Cards is as follows:

  • Open Edition
    • Deploy: 50
    • Capture: 40
    • CapOn: 25
  • Limited Edition
    • Deploy: 60
    • Capture: 50
    • CapOn: 30

Remember that these munzees will be archived 7 days after they are deployed, so make sure your intended recipient captures it before then!

For more information on the Greeting Cards, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Munzee on!

Camp Competition Results!

And the winner is…

Camp FrEEZ!

As they’ve been dominating the entire competition, this comes as no surprise… but we think the other camps made a valiant effort as well! The final point differences among Camp QRantine, Camp KenneZEE, and Camp Cap-A-Lot are so close, which is a testament to the effort ALL camps have put in!

Prizes

Now moving on to the part you’re probably most interested in — the prizes! Here’s what you will receive if you were active at any point during the competition and placed in a camp, based on how your team ranked:

  • Camp FrEEZ:
    • 1st Place Badge
    • Unique Greeting Card — more info on that below!
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths (see below) NOW through 23:59 MHQ on September 9th
  • Camp QRantine:
    • 2nd Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 30th
  • Camp KenneZEE:
    • 3rd Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 23rd
  • Camp Cap-A-Lot:
    • 4th Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 16th

With Camp FrEEZ victorious that means that the winning “Camp Myths” are the Dragon family, along with a few flying friends to make the bonus extra special.

To clarify, everyone will receive double points starting NOW on the following bouncers:

Unique Greeting Card Details

Having more time for double points than the other camps is definitely a useful perk for players in the first place camp, but we also wanted to give something exclusive! It’s the FrEEZ Flag greeting card! This greeting card will be the same as all other “limited edition” cards in terms of points. Each Camp FrEEZ camper will receive THREE cards.

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes of your card when you deploy to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific note will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

For more information on the Greeting Cards, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Support

We’ll be awarding the final prizes starting today, but as there were so many active players, it may take a while before you receive your badge and greeting card if applicable. Double points, however, should be working for everyone!

If, after a few days, you still haven’t received your final prizes, please e-mail support@munzee.com.

Camp Merch

If you haven’t treated yourself recently, pick up a shiny new personal tag, T-shirt, mug, or tote from Camp Munzee Collection HERE! The latest tPOB, the Bear Cub, will be available until next week!

Munzee on!

Camp Competition Week 4

As announced earlier in the week, we decided to do one more weekly check-in! We thought everyone would appreciate an extra week of prizes before we announce the final results. Some final reminders for the rest of the competition:

  • Prizes for this week are starting to be awarded TODAY! It may take a while for everyone to receive their prizes, so please wait a few days before e-mailing support@munzee.com about Week 4 prizes.
  • Water Balloons and Flags will leave the map at August 9 at 23:59 MHQ.
    • You can check CuppaZee’s Camps Leaderboard to track your camp’s performance until this time. Then, the leaderboard will be closed as it needs some time to catch up with all the capture data and finish calculating all the point values.
  • Final results will be announced on August 11. These results will take the ENTIRE competition period into account, not just the period after this check-in.

Now that we’ve got all of that out the way, it’s time to announce the results for the past week! Congratulations to Camp FrEEZ for keeping its place at the top!

We’d also like to congratulate Camp QRantine for attaining the 2nd Place spot! It’s been a pretty fierce competition so we’re excited to see how it all turns out next week! Just a few more days to get your captures in!

Lastly, as this competition draws to a close, you might want a souvenir to commemorate the fun times that were had. Pick one up in the Camp Munzee Collection HERE! Among all the camp gear, you’ll also find our newest furry friend!

Munzee on!

Camp Competition Week 3

It’s time for another weekly check-in! We’re now in the home stretch, but we still wanted to give you some reminders as you continue Camp Munzee gameplay!

By now you should be familiar with CuppaZee’s Camps Leaderboard — but we don’t mind linking to it again! Maybe the only time you check it is when you read through this post!

Active players on ALL teams will receive prizes each week! Prizes for the previous week were awarded on Monday. If you were active (i.e. captured a munzee) during Week 2 and did not receive a prize (check your Item History on the Credits page), please e-mail support@munzee.com. Prizes for this week are starting to be awarded TODAY! It may take a while for everyone to receive their prizes, so please wait a few days before e-mailing Support about Week 3 prizes.

As we stated in the original blog post, the top team at the final check-in will receive double points on certain Myth captures for a whole month! We’re also planning to award additional prizes, but you’ll just have to wait and see!

Now that we’ve got all of that out the way, it’s time to announce the results for the past week! Congratulations to Camp FrEEZ for keeping its place at the top!

We’d also like to congratulate Camp Cap-A-Lot for attaining the 2nd Place spot! The point differences between the camps are smaller than the previous weeks, which shows that all camps are working hard and that you have to fight to keep your spot! Just one more week left — keep up the good work!

Lastly, if you missed our quick social post last week, we just wanted to let you know that you can purchase Camp Personal Tags in the store! You can find them in the Camp Munzee Collection HERE!

Munzee on!

Event Spotlight: Munzee Húsvét

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the Munzee Húsvét event, which took place on March 20, 2016 at Budapest, Hungary and was hosted by Attis.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

It was our first event (I was playing in a team with my son). At that time we were still quite new players – we registered in 2013 but we joined a clan just a few months before (the event) – we didn’t know a lot of players personally so it was a great opportunity to meet people.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

Choose a good, easy accessible location. Besides the new icons and badges, some small gifts, freebies, and tombolas are always attracting players.

What made your event unique?

As the event was related to Easter, we offered to all participants some Easter Bunny chocolates and eggs. Also, it was the first event in Hungary when Emerald Pins were given to each player who attended the event.

Would you like to highlight any future events you’re hosting?

Camp Competition Week 2

It’s time for another weekly check-in! We’re halfway through, but we still wanted to give you some reminders as you continue Camp Munzee gameplay!

If you haven’t done so already, bookmark CuppaZee’s Camps Leaderboard so you can quickly check on your Camp’s progress whenever you like!

Remember that active players on ALL teams will receive prizes each week; players from the top team will just get the most of whatever it is we decide to give, and players from the second place team will get slightly less than the top team, and so on…

As we stated in the original blog post, the top team at the final check-in will receive double points on certain Myth captures for a whole month! We’re also planning to award additional prizes, but you’ll just have to wait and see!

Now that we’ve got all of that out the way, it’s time to announce the results for the past week! Congratulations to Camp FrEEZ for keeping its place at the top!

We’d also like to congratulate Camp KenneZEE and Camp Cap-A-Lot as well for rising up in the ranks! We noticed that the rankings kept changing, all the way up until the last minute. We’re happy to see that players from all camps are putting in the effort and keeping things interesting. We hope that fighting spirit remains until the end of the competition!

Lastly, if you’re proud to be in your camp, don’t forget to commemorate this special time with some Camp Merch! You can view the Camp Munzee Collection HERE!

Munzee on!

Celebrate National Hammock Day with Double Points!

As we mentioned at the start of the month, we wanted to give our beloved Daniel Hammock a good send-off as he welcomes a new addition to his family! Tomorrow is National Hammock Day, and we couldn’t think of a more perfect day to do it! Starting tomorrow at 00:01 MHQ, ALL activity on Flat Hammocks will be worth double points through 23:59 MHQ on July 26! That means all deploys, captures, and cap ons will be worth double points.

We’d love to see the map decorated with more of the rainbow colors of Flat Hammock! Remember that we are now on the Forever Flat schedule, so you’ll be able to rake in cap on points from Flat Hammocks much faster!

Munzee On!

Camp Competition Week 1

Earlier this week we announced that weekly prizes would be awarded based on points within the week. We thought this would help motivate players on all 4 teams, as every team will be starting from scratch each week and have the same opportunity to earn the weekly prize!

However, keep in mind that the grand prize at the end of the competition will take the entire competition period into account, so keep giving your all until the end — you never know if another team will launch a surprise attack! If you need a refresher on the rules, check our original post HERE! And remember rewards are only given to active campers each week, so keep playing even if you don’t see balloons or flags!

Now that we’ve got all of that out the way, it’s time to announce the results for the past week! Congratulations to Camp FrEEZ for starting the competition off strong!!!

As for the other Camps, don’t feel discouraged — this is the start of a new week after all! You can give Camp FrEEZ a run for its money as the weekly prizes do not directly give them an advantage in the competition — though they are certainly very nice in regular Munzee gameplay!

Munzee on!
