Awesome Aussie Animals Continue the Fundraising!

In our effort to raise funds for Australia Relief, we announced the creation of 3 new virtual gardens earlier in the week. The gardens sold out much faster than we had expected, which shows how ready and willing our community is to contribute to this cause! For those who were unable to purchase garden pins, we are proud to announce another opportunity for you with a new offering!

These ALL NEW Temporary Player Owned Bouncers (POBs) are adorable Aussie Animals and they’re on sale NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store! A portion of the proceeds from this sale will also be added to our Australia Relief donation, so thank you all for supporting this great cause!

Like Pouch Creatures, Aussie Animals are based on items from our sister app, WallaBee, and represent a new era of munzees to enjoy! Temporary POBs work much like regular POBs, but they’re only on the map for a limited amount of time.  There are two types of Aussie Animals, the Kangaroo and Koala, and since these munzees won’t be around forever they have a smaller purchase price of $5 each. You can also purchase up to 5 of each animal per player account!

Aussie Animals

Aussie Animals are temporary POBs that bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. They will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on April 30, when they will be automatically archived on your account. If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

  • Deploy: 126 points
  • Capture: 261 points
  • CapOn: 126 points

You can find these cute creatures bouncing to the following landing pads every 12 hours or when captured:

  • Greenies
  • Safari Bus Evolution Munzees- All Levels
    • Safari Truck (V)
    • Safari Van (V)
    • Safari Bus (V)
  • King Of The Jungle Evolution Munzees- All Levels
    • Lion Cub
    • Lion
    • King Of The Jungle
  • Water Mystery Munzees
  • Aquamarine Jewel Munzees
  • Wildlife Places Munzees (V)
  • White Virtual Munzees (V)
  • Virtual Blue tones (V)
    • VIRTUAL BLUE VIOLET MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL INDIGO MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CADET BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL PERIWINKLE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CORNFLOWER MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL BLUE GREEN MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL PACIFIC BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CERULEAN MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL ROBIN EGG BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL TURQUOISE BLUE MUNZEES
  • TREEHOUSE

Aussie Animals will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Kangaroo and Koala on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Aussie Animal visits you. However, Aussie Animals will be non-blastable. They will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on White and Blue-toned Virtual Munzees. You can access Aussie Animals under the “Only Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

All players who purchase a Kangaroo Aussie Animal or a Koala Aussie Animal will receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Aussie Animals specials. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Jumping Joeys – Capture 1 Aussie Animal Munzee of any type.

Remember these temporary POBs will only be available for capture until the end of April, so cap as many as you can and keep them bouncing!

Munzee on!

Help Our Friends Down Under With The Australia Relief Virtual Garden!

UPDATE 1/15/2020:

All the Kangaroo Garden in Adelaide, the Koala Garden in Melbourne, and the Wombat Garden in Sydney are all SOLD OUT. Thank you all for your support! 

We have also updated the donation locations to better match the areas of the gardens. The funds raised from the Melbourne Koala Garden will actually be sent to the Country Fire Authority (CFA) and the funds raised from the new Sydney Wombat Garden will be sent to the NSW Rural Fire Service. The gardens are the same size so there is no difference in donation amount assuming all are sold. Apologies for the confusion on our part!

Last week we announced some special guests were attending the upcoming Australia Day events Down Under, but we also mentioned some possible opportunities to support those affected by the wildfires. We’ve probably all watched the destruction taking place in Australia from the wildfires and we wanted to help in some way.

One virtual munzee will automatically be deployed in the Sydney Garden after it has been purchased. 30% of the proceeds from this item will support emergency relief efforts through a donation to the The NSW Rural Fire Service. To learn more about NSW RFS please visit https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/about-us.

Here is the product link to the Melbourne Aussie Garden- Sydney. *SOLD OUT*

We have launched a new Koala virtual garden dedicated to providing some relief to the affected animals and communities in and around Melbourne. 30% of the proceeds from the sales of this specific garden will be donated to the Country Fire Authority (CFA). To learn more about CFA please visit https://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/about/supporting-cfa#donate-cfa.

Here is the product link to the Melbourne Aussie Garden- Melbourne. *SOLD OUT*

Today we are launching a new Kangaroo virtual garden dedicated to providing some relief to the affected animals and communities in and around Adelaide. 30% of the proceeds from the sales of this specific garden will go to the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, located just off the coast of Adelaide. This garden is near the upcoming Australia Day events, and thankfully the hosts have informed us the area is safe from fires.

Here is the product link to the Aussie Garden- Adelaide. *SOLD OUT*

Your $1 Virtual Munzee purchase in this garden will automatically deploy a virtual for your account. Each player account is limited to 10 virtuals in each of the gardens. Please note that if you purchased the max amount of spots in one garden you can still purchase up to 10  spots in another garden as well.

Thank you for supporting both our game, and the animals in Australia. Stay tuned because we have another unique way you can help bouncing your way soon.

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.

Earth Day Flash Sale and Planet Protection Tips!

Happy Earth Day from MHQ! To celebrate the day, we’re offering 22 percent off on all Earth Mystery Munzees for Earth Day, starting today at 15:00 MHQ time and lasting until 15:00 MHQ time tomorrow. You can stop by the Freeze Tag Online Store to shop this sale, and check out our Elemental Mystery Help Guide article for more information about Earth Mystery Munzees.

Last year, we had the pleasure of working with players to help plant 10,000 trees through the Earth Day Network‘s Canopy Project thanks to our Earth Day fundraiser! Players helped raise the money to accomplish this awesome feat through the sale of Earth Day Evolution Munzees and Earth Day personal tags. It was our pleasure to work with players to assist the goals of the Canopy Project, an organization that focuses on strengthening communities through tree planting.

With so many exciting projects in the works, we unfortunately didn’t have the time to plan any Earth Day fundraisers this year. However, we would still like to take the chance to share simple everyday ways you can improve and preserve our wonderful planet. Munzee is a real world scavenger hunt, and Freeze Tag places great value on preserving the outdoors and protecting the Earth. We love hearing about how eco-friendly so many of our players are, and we hope the following tips can help raise awareness about how to care for our planet!

20 Tips for Protecting the Planet: 

1. Follow in the footsteps of our Worldwide Events Manager Louise and bike more, drive less!

2. Cut down on meat and animal product intake. This doesn’t mean going vegetarian or vegan, just reducing the amount of animal products you consume. Try to have a weekly “vegetarian day” to dramatically reduce the amount of natural resources used to produce meat.

3. Reduce, reuse, recycle! This mantra should be a lifestyle. Be wary of the amount of waste you accumulate.

4. Plant a tree! This is a simple yet impactful way to improve the planet.

5. Purchase second hand items to reduce packing materials while also saving your money.

6. Be mindful of the products you use. Choose non-toxic chemicals so that you aren’t polluting the waterways.

7. Don’t waste paper products. Be conscious of how many tissues or napkins you take and how much paper towel and toilet paper you use. Only select as much as you need. Additionally, try to keep your business paperless and don’t waste notepads. Remember to recycle paper products.

8. Recycle your newspapers and junk mail. Rather than throw away unwanted or used paper items, such as newspapers and junkman, recycle them. You can also look into cancelling unwanted newspaper services and junk mail subscriptions.

9. Invest in energy efficient lightbulbs to cut down on greenhouse emissions, and be mindful of how many lights you leave on.

10. Be sensible about how you do your laundry. Consider using a clothesline to save power while drying your clothes. (This will also help them last longer!) Wait until your laundry is full to wash. Avoid doing half loads of laundry, and consider switching to a warm cycle rather than hot.

11. Be a smart shopper! Carry reusable bags wherever you go. Just say no to plastic.

12. Shower more, bathe less. Baths can be relaxing, but try to cut down on time spent in the tub since baths use approximately twice as much water as showers.

13. Conserve your water usage. The less water you use, the less wastewater will end up in the ocean.

14. Cut down on shower time. As little as two minutes of reduced shower time can make an enormous difference in water conservation.

15. Buy local produce when you are able to in order to cutdown on pollution that occurs when transporting goods long distance.

16. Get involved in community cleanups. Volunteer work is invaluable to Earth conservation.

17. Save your energy use (and cut down on your energy bill) by adjusting the temperature in your home and using a timer system for when you are out.

18. Use a travel mug for your daily beverage. This is an easy way to cut down on waste every day.

19. Pay your bills online to reduce the amount of paper waste you acquire. You can also cancel your paper bank statements and work on staying digital.

20. Educate those around you in a friendly manner. Help them understand why it’s important to value natural resources and how they can do so.

Thanks to National Ocean Service and 50 Ways to Help for helping us compile these important tips!

Happy Earth Day, and Munzee on!

Earth Day Fundraiser Update!

We want to take a moment to thank everyone for helping make our Earth Day fundraiser another great example of the good our players can do! Through the sales of Earth Day Evolution Munzees and Earth Day personal tags we’ve proudly helped plant 10,000 trees through the Earth Day Network‘s Canopy Project!

The Canopy Project focuses to strengthen communities through tree planting. Using agroforestry, sapling distribution and tree care training, Earth Day Network empowers organizations and citizens to conserve, repair, and restore tree cover to their lands. Freeze Tag’s donation is part of the Earth Day Network’s goal of planting 7.8 billion trees — one tree for every person on earth — in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in 2020. According to the Earth Day Network, trees reverse the impacts of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability.

As a company focused on geolocation gaming, preserving the outdoors is extremely important to us. The work the Earth Day Network does to protect and preserve the environment is unmatched. We’re proud of the response of our players across the world who have once again shown their commitment to worthy causes.

Remember that if you deployed your Earth Day Evolution Seed Munzees when they first went on sale, those will have evolved to their final Tree forms by now so get out and cap others’ Tree Evos! Also keep in mind that 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 hope you’ve enjoyed the Earth Day fundraiser specials and thank you once again! Go green and Munzee on!

Earth Day Charity Special Update

Howdy!

First off, we would like to thank you for your support of our Earth Day Charity Special. We love seeing players interact and help each other for deployments and captures, and it’s even better when it’s for a good cause.

Earth Day Evolutions will leave the Freeze Tag Online Store on Monday, April 9th at 10:00 MHQ time. This is to ensure that, if deployed immediately, they will be fully evolved by the time they leave the map so you get the most out of them. So if you haven’t purchased any Earth Day Evolutions yet, you still have time! Don’t forget there are badges for capping AND deploying these specials!

Also, keep an eye on the blog next week for more information about what charity we will be donating to.

Thanks again for being such a great community!

Munzee on!

Before the charity specials leave the map, we’ve got one more surprise up our sleeves.

World Diabetes Day Special

Starting tomorrow (November 14th) at 15:00 MHQ time, 2,017 World Diabetes Day bouncing specials will be on the map. These specials will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when capped, and will be attracted by Magnets. The points for these specials are as follows:

Capture – 14
CapOn (for host owner) – 11

You will also earn the World Diabetes Day 2017 badge for capturing one of these specials.

World Diabetes Day 2017 Badge

These specials will leave the map along with the Diabetes Awareness Charity Specials on Sunday, November 19th at 23:59 MHQ time.


We will also be selling Diabetes Awareness Personal Munzees beginning at 15:00 MHQ time tomorrow. The website link will be live at that time.

These Personal Munzees include the Diabetes Awareness Charity Special icon on the front and the World Diabetes Day 2017 special badge on the back. They are printed on PVC key tags, making them lightweight and durable. A limited number of these will be available for $10 each, and there is a limit of one per username.

We hope you enjoy this new special icon as well as the new Personal Munzees.

Munzee on!

Diabetes Awareness Charity Special

Rob and Matt mentioned on the latest podcast that a new charity special was on the way, and we’re happy to announce that it is here! Starting now, you can purchase and deploy the Diabetes Awareness Charity Special.

Diabetes awareness is a very important cause that is near and dear to many of our hearts. From family members to friends, many, if not all, of us know someone who has been affected by diabetes. From MunzFit events to the Tour de Cure to this charity special, we’ve planned this Fall to focus on health and diabetes awareness and research.

Money raised from the Diabetes Awareness Charity Special will be donated to the American Diabetes Association through the Tour de Cure. The remainder of the money will be donated to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). The IDF is an umbrella organization that consists of over 200 diabetes associations in 170 countries to help those living with diabetes and those at risk. This charity special also coincides with World Diabetes Day (November 14th), the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign.

The Diabetes Awareness Charity Special will be on the map from Monday, October 16th at 15:00 MHQ time (now) through Sunday, November 19th at 23:59 MHQ time. Specials can be purchased in the Munzee Online Store through October 31st at 23:59 MHQ time These are available for $2.00 each, and there is a limit of 50 per username. You can find them here. These are temporary and will be archived at the end of this special campaign, similar to previous charity campaign specials in the past.

These are temporary virtual munzees that can be placed anywhere via Quick Deploy, and there is a Diabetes Awareness filter in the app under “Virtual” (make sure to turn it on). They have a 300ft capture radius and are blastable as well. These charity specials do follow proximity rules with all other types (excluding Flats). On November 19th at 23:59 they will be archived and removed from the map so plan and deploy early.

Points for the Diabetes Awareness Special are as follows:

  • Deploy: 14
  • Capture: 14
  • CapOn: 10

You can also earn the Diabetes Awareness Special badge for capturing or deploying 1 Diabetes Awareness Special.

During this fundraiser, we’d like to highlight stories about diabetes (or health in general) and how Munzee has helped you. If you have a story you would like to share, please email iloveyou@munzee.com.

We hope you enjoy this temporary charity special virtual game piece, and we thank you in advance for your support.

Munzee on!

Tour de Cure: Race Week Update

Hey, everyone!

Tour de Cure is THIS WEEKEND! The team is ready to race, and we’re excited to be supporting such a good cause. The Team Munzee cycling kits have arrived, and Louise is already sporting one.

A limited quantity will be available in the Munzee Online Store soon.

As we mentioned before, we will be hosting a Munzee Event after the races, so you can come support the race team, roam around Southfork Ranch, or check our the vendors booths. This will be a MunzFit event too!

Speaking of vendor booths, Eventzee will have a Tour de Cure-wide scavenger hunt going on during the event with a booth in the vendor area to spread the word about both Munzee and Eventzee.

We know everyone can’t make it, but we appreciate any support you can give, whether that be joining our team, cheering us on, or helping us raise funds for the American Diabetes Association by donating to the team.

We’ll be sharing plenty of pictures on race day, and we can’t thank you enough for your support. Keep an eye out for more information about an upcoming way to give back, as well.

Munzee on!
