Halloween Event Kickoff, Virtual Sale and Community Challenge!

Ghosts and ghouls, something wicked this way comes! Bewitching Lou is flying across the night sky because Halloween Munzee Events officially kick off today! This has been our biggest month ever for Munzee events, so we’re excited to see a big turnout this weekend.

With Halloween Events in overdrive, we want to give you all another opportunity to earn double points on all Flat Friends during MH-BOO Bash Weekend! There are 61 events this weekend alone, so here is your challenge:

The worldwide community will need to capture 500 event indicator pins and 5,000 event pins by 23:59 MHQ on 10/14. We understand that not everyone can make it to events, so we’ll also have a secondary goal for deploying virtual munzees of any type as well. If 2,500 virtuals of any type are deployed throughout the weekend, that can replace one of the other requirements.

Be sure to check the Munzee calendar to find an event near you. Deploy virts at events as well to better your chances, support other players, and gain ! We have a handful of virtual items on sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

  • Amethyst: $3 (originally $4)- BUY HERE
  • Emerald: $8 (originally $10)- BUY HERE
  • MVM: $3.75 (originally $4.50)- BUY HERE
  • Surprise: $3.75 (originally $4.50)- BUY HERE

Just a reminder that the point increase for Event Munzees is now effective as well!

  • Event pins are now worth 10 points each
  • Event Indicator Pins are now worth 100 points each
  • Event Badges are now worth 500 points
  • CoExist Munzees are now worth 200 points

We hope you all have a howling good time for the rest of the month and we can’t wait to see some of you at MH-BOO Bash! We might even have some fun tricks, or treats, up our sleeves for the worldwide community too…

Happy hauntings and Munzee on!

 

 

One final reminder for hosts from last month’s blog: All events moving forward will receive 50 event pins and proximity between event pins will be 100 feet. Effective date was October 12.

PSA: Events in October

Howdy Munzee community around the world!

October was already going to be a busy month for events with all of the Halloween events on the calendar! However over the past 4 days many of you have shown your commitment to reaching Level 5 in the Clan Wars in a new way, by hosting events. Due to the overwhelming number, over 130 as of the time of this blog post, I felt it was necessary to give all players a few expectations for events.

Event hosts are important to us at MHQ. You’ve always been a generally smaller audience interacting directly with Louise, our Worldwide Events Manager, and have come to understand our systems. With this new rush of hosts and events we would like to welcome you, and share a few words of wisdom and some expectations.

The first is easy, understand you are not the only host Louise is dealing with. Respect her time and your own by FULLY reading her event creation email because it includes ALL of the information you need to be a successful host.

Second, be prepared in advance. Louise is great and she works at all hours of the day and night, but she may not be able to handle your “emergency” in a timely fashion if you haven’t prepared yourself. Again, most questions she has are covered by the email she sends you with your account details, please read it fully. You can also seek the advice of others who have hosted in the past or work together with others to share the load.

Third, Location Location Location! Events need to be in their own location. You cannot have 2 events in the same place around the same time, otherwise it is considered one event. Have the 2nd event at a later time in another location.

Finally, YOU ARE AN EXTENSION OF MHQ* to any players who attend your events. You could be the first person to introduce someone to this great game! Please understand that event hosts are held to a higher set of rules:

  • Many events have proximity rules lifted so they can deploy physical munzees in crowded areas. This does not give you the right to break the rules and teach others to do the same.
  • All deployments should physically be in the location where the pin is on the map, just like the regular game.
  • No event should have multiple munzees to scan at a single location.
  • No event should be conducted with a sheet of paper with munzees on it to scan as you walk/ride/drive from one location to the next.

The rules of the game are in place for a reason. Event hosts are held to a higher standard and need to set an example for all players. This is an important point for us because you are representing the game of Munzee to a wider audience. YOU are growing the game. We appreciate that very much and ask that you do so respectfully.

Thank you for reading these rules and requests, violations are being dealt with in accordance with the player code of conduct.

Let’s all have a great time in October and maybe we’ll see you at some of the events!

Munzee On!

Rob, President of Freeze Tag Games

And now…

October 2018 Clan Requirements, The Story

It’s September 28, 2018 at 15:05 MHQ Time, the October Clan Requirements have been released for exactly 5 minutes. There are shrieks of delight from some!

*Shriek*

There are groans of misery from others!

*Groan, mumble, mumble*

At MHQ Rob sits, drumming his fingers, watching “The Water Cooler” for some sign of acceptance or rejection of his latest attempt to entertain the masses. But today there isn’t a lot of chatter because the requirements were laid out in 3 formats, enough to please even the most detailed of players. At least that’s what Rob thinks. 😉

All around the world players start to communicate and choose what level they will aim for in October. Some shaking their heads because “THERE ARE NO EVENTS NEAR ME!” so I won’t be able to get the event indicator pins. Others saying they won’t be able to get virtual evolutions because they “JUST CAPPED THEM YESTERDAY WHEN THEY EVOLVED.”

Rob patiently waits for the complaints to become public so he can start reminding players that clans are like families, they help each other out. He thinks, clans are also like underwear, sometimes you have to change them – but he doesn’t say this out loud. He reminds everyone that each level is something to aim for with the higher levels designed to be more challenging and often not designed for a brand new player. It’s best for players to join the game, join a clan, figure everything out, accumulate some credits, buy some stickers, maybe even a Munzpak! 😉 *Shameless plug*

Anyway, one group of players that have played together for the last 27 clan battles decides they are going for LEVEL 5! They know it will be a challenge but they are up for it. One player in New York says they can deploy some of the Scatters needed, but not all 50. Two other players from Finland and Australia say they’ve got enough to help as well. A player from California chimes in and says they know of a prize wheel trail with 10 they can capture but it won’t be enough for the 125 required. One of the German clan members says they have a prize wheel garden just one town over so the prize wheel caps will be easy to get. They notice there are 2 specific requirements that are “per player” and decide to come up with a “battle plan.”

Several of them plan to use one magnet to get their 3 myth caps, others have “myths all over the place every day” and say it will be easy for them. One of the players from England says they are going to have to drive 3 towns up the M4 just to have a spot to deploy their 15 clan weapons because “there’s no room here for anything”. The others laugh because CLEARLY there is always room for one more! 😉

They notice it will take a total of 50 myth caps and 250 Clan weapons deployed to earn rewards at Level 5 and each vows to do their required portion “and then some.” The chat goes on for the next several hours with them discussing each requirement and how they will achieve it.

They compliment Rob, publicly, for finally giving three forms of displaying the requirements. After all, “The Time Is Now”. He’s sure there will be a few mistakes but has publicly vowed to fix them, as he always does, and also to ignore all questions, as he always does. 😉

So, before we close this story, a reminder to all…if it isn’t mentioned specifically then it’s probably excluded on purpose. And YES, CapOn points DO count in October!

Munzee On and Happy Clanning in October!

Announcing ZeeQRew: An Elite Munzee Player Program

Are you ready to join the ranks of the most elite group of Munzee players? We’re excited to introduce the all new ZeeQRew program! It’s up to this crew to help clean up the map and replace any missing munzees as they come across them.

ZeeQRew is a group of dedicated players who will earn, on a bi-monthly basis, a special title with special in game rights. They will also be rewarded for their work and for growing the map.

The requirements for joining ZeeQRew are as follows:

  • Must be a current Premium Member AND
  • have at least 100,000 lifetime points AND
  • have at least 250 physical deploys AND
  • have at least 500 physical captures AND
  • have at least 1 cap and 1 deploy in the last 14 days

Players’ statuses will automatically be checked at 00:01 on the 1st and 15th of each month. If the requirements are met the player will earn or retain the ZeeQRew title. If the requirements are not met the title will be removed from any current ZeeQRew, BUT it may be re-earned at the next checkpoint.

Rewards:

  • ZeeQRew title in app & online
  • The ability to replace any physical Munzee regardless of owner using a generic sticker*
  • Exclusive ZeeQRew badge (pictured below)
  • Access to special products only available to ZeeQRew
    • Unique merchandise
    • Discounted greenies (generic stickers)
    • Additional items and perks as decided by MHQ

The program will officially launch on Friday September 28th, the exclusive products will then launch in early October. When the program begins we ask that any player with concerns about ZeeQRew activity report any issues to support.

We’re excited to finally take the next steps in growing and maintaining the map. We know that members of ZeeQRew will prove to be an integral part of the game and we look forward to all sorts of new opportunities for them. For those that are not currently eligible for ZeeQRew we encourage you all to prove yourselves by accomplishing the requirements. This crew will only grow over time as our game grows!

Good luck and Munzee on!

Fixer Upper Badge

*When a Munzee is replaced a “replaced by” journal entry is made. Abuse of ZeeQRew abilities can result in removal of title and rights permanently.
