Introducing the Banshee Mythological Munzee!

What’s all that wailing about?! Cover your ears, because our latest Mythological Munzee is shrieking her way into the game!

Beware the Banshee

The Banshee Munzee is based on the wailing widow of Irish Folklore and will be available for purchase on March 15 at 10:00 MHQ time. Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day! You can find the Banshee Munzee bouncing around on Greenies, Shamrocks, Black Virtuals, and Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured.

Each Banshee Munzee is numbered and will be owned by a player. You can pick yours up for a limited time from the Freeze Tag Online Store for $15! Just be sure to set your reminders for 10:00 MHQ time tomorrow to snag one before they sell out!

The sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership. Only ONE (1) Banshee Munzee is allowed per account. (But don’t worry, this wailing widow won’t let you leave her!)

At a more affordable price point, the Banshee will work a bit differently than other Myths that have recently been released. The Banshee Munzee will NOT include the ability to nudge or rename. However, you will be able to use a Bouncer Upgrade Credit to give her nudge and renaming abilities. Upgrading your Banshee will give it the ability to land on Green Virtual Munzees. This new upgrade feature will make it more likely to capture, with 10 additional colored virtual landing pads. You can find the full list of what it bounces to below.

The upgrade credit will also give you the ability to “nudge” your Banshee Munzee to a new munzee up to three times a day, following the MHQ 24-hour day, after it has been on its host Munzee for at least three hours. This nudging ability is only available for the owner via the munzee’s webpage and is not available in the app.

Your munzee will still retain its unique number, but feel free get creative when it comes to renaming your Banshee Munzee! (Know any wailing women in your life you want to immortalize?) Just be sure to follow the Player Code of Conduct, and remember Munzee maintains a family-friendly environment.

Banshee Munzees will land on:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrocks
  • Air Mysteries
  • Black Virtual Munzees
    • Virtual Timberwolf Munzees
    • Virtual Silver Munzees
    • Virtual Gray Munzees
    • Virtual Black Munzees
  • *Green Virtual Munzees (*ONLY if upgraded)
    • *Virtual Sea Green Munzees
    • *Virtual Granny Smith Apple Munzees
    • *Virtual Green Munzees
    • *Virtual Forest Green Munzees
    • *Virtual Asparagus Munzees
    • *Virtual Olive Green Munzees
    • *Virtual Yellow Green Munzees
    • *Virtual Green Yellow Munzees
    • *Virtual Spring Green Munzees

Are you looking to attract one of these wailing women? You’re in luck! Like the Mermaid and Fairy, the Banshee Munzee will be attracted to magnets! Pick up your Munzee Magnet for $1 to attract up to three Seasonal Specials or Mythological Munzees for up to one hour! You can also purchase a Virtual Munzee Magnet for the same price in order to increase your chances of attracting our latest Mythological Munzee. The Banshee Munzee will be attracted to magnets in both physical and virtual forms.

Details

Name: The Banshee

Description: The Banshee Munzee bounces around on Greenies, Shamrocks, Black Virtuals, and Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured. Each is numbered and owned by a Munzee player. Only 1 Banshee Munzee is allowed per player.

Points:

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 100

To help find the Banshee Munzee, turn on “All Expiring Specials” and “All Mythological Filters” under the Premium heading.

There is not currently a traditional line of badges for capturing the Banshee Munzee, but these will count toward the Myth Hunter badge line. Stay tuned for a line of badges similar to the other Myth Ranker badges soon! There might even be a couple of surprises if you’re brave enough to catch a few!

Right now you might be screaming with joy, but if you encounter this Banshee, your shrieks might turn to terror!

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

Pedal for Equality! International Women’s Day Point Increase and Freeze Tag Sponsorship

Happy International Women’s Day from MHQ! To celebrate the day the Munzee way, all Flat Lous will be worth DOUBLE points from 00:01 to 23:59 MHQ time today! And MHQ is proud to announce a new sponsorship this International Women’s Day.

A Pedaled Protest

What we love even more than extra points is the fierce lady behind them, as well as her crew of fellow empowered female cyclists. Louise will be joining her new cycling team the InternationElleswhose goal is to bring attention to the fact that there is a gender gap in the world of cycling. This is most apparent in the Tour de France which does not allow women to participate or offer a women’s version of the complete race. To demonstrate their disagreement with this dated system, female athletes from around the world will be clipping in and pedaling for equality. The InternationElles will ride the entirety of the Tour de France route, completing each stage the day before the men begin their sanctioned race.

Each year the French cycling team Donnons des Elles au Vélo J-1 ride the entirety of the Tour de France route before the men begin their sanctioned race. This year the team invited an international group of women to join them in their peaceful protest. The InternationElles is comprised of a team of 10 women from across the globe united in the quest of promoting women’s cycling as they bike for gender equality.

Freeze Tag Sponsorship

The InternationElles are entirely self-funded, leaving them on the lookout for sponsors and partners to unite in their cause. Inspired by Louise and her team’s dedication and in unity with their cause, the Freeze Tag Team is proud to announce our official support of the InternationElles on this International Women’s Day.

In celebration of International Women’s Day a portion of the proceeds from every Flat Lou purchase this weekend will go toward Freeze Tag’s sponsorship of the InternationElles. You can pick up your Flat Lou at the Freeze Tag Online Store to show your support!

Exposing Inequality

For the past four years, the Donnons des Elles au Vélo J-1 have biked in protest to stand up for women’s cycling, which is shockingly still marginalized in a year as progressive as 2019. The goal of the peaceful cycling protest is to change opinions about the capability and role of women in cycling. Just this past week, a major cycling race in Belgium had to be stopped after a female cyclist caught up to the men. The solution? “Neutralizing” the race in order to reinstate the gender gap.

After decades of fighting for an equal foot in the race, women are still excluded from the Tour de France. Female cyclists have been fighting to establish a sustainable women’s stage race that can rival it, with their efforts dating back to 1955. A host of issues, included financial burdens, organizational struggles, media bias, and mockery, have held female cyclists back from participating in a race filled with the same caliber of prestige as men are allotted.

The Big Picture

While the exclusion of female cyclists from the world’s biggest cycling race embodies an underlying current of sexism and exclusion in the event, in a fuller sense, Louise and her fellow female cyclists are striving to bring overall awareness to gender inequalities in cycling. The Donnons des Elles au Vélo J-1, InternationElles, and countless female cyclists from around the world are faced with continual disparagement that prohibits them from participating in their sport on the same caliber as their male counterparts.

Threaded throughout the sport of cycling is an undercurrent of sexism, from podium girls to select cycling company advertisement. Female cyclists pack in the same grueling training regimen as men, yet they are faced with prize money discrepancies, lack of women’s races, and lack of race coverage in the case that events do take place. These continual practices put female cyclists at a constant disadvantage, a position which this band of innovative ladies is hoping to eradicate and redefine.

Stay tuned for future updates about Louise, her team, and their cycling quest. The entire group of empowered female athletes will be preparing for their over 3,400 kilometer bike tour this July. The ladies will start in Brussels on July 5, concluding their race in Paris on July 27, demonstrating their athletic prowess.

You can show your support for Louise by deploying your own Flat Lou this International Women’s Day!

Munzee on!
