Keep Up with Munzee News AND Specials Inside the App!

We love how active our player community is, especially on social media, which definitely helps to grow the game! This blog, our social media accounts, and in-app messages, are just some of the many ways we communicate updates to our players.

We’re now making it easier than ever to keep up with all of the latest Munzee news right in the app. With this latest update, we hope to bridge the gap between this living app and you!

NEW What’s New? Section

This new section of the app can be found by tapping the Hamburger Menu icon at the top left corner of most of the app’s screens, then by tapping on [What’s New?] between the [Store] and [Notifications] buttons.

What's New

Similar to the Filters section, there are 3 tabs at the top that allow you to switch between the following subsections:

  • News – shows the most recent blog posts in button form, with the newest at the top of the list. Tapping on any of the buttons will open that blog post in your device’s default browser.
  • Featured – shows all active Munzee Owned Bouncers (MOBs) AND temporary Player Owned Bouncers (tPOBs) in button form, with the soonest to leave the map at the top of the list. Tapping on any of the buttons will open a window in your device’s default browser showing all the relevant blog posts.
  • Schedule – shows all active scheduled munzees (Flat Friends, QRewzees, and RetireMyths) in button form, with the soonest to leave the map at the top of the list. Tapping on any of the buttons will open the current schedule for that munzee in your device’s default browser.

When there’s new information released you’ll also see a red icon next to “What’s New?” to let you know there’s been some breaking news! We’re still putting out in-app messages, emails, social posts and more, but this section is meant so players can easily access a collective area for all their Munzee news.

Button Migration

To make room for the [What’s New?] button, we moved the old [Offline Mode] button into the [Tools] section, and renamed it [Offline Queue].

We hope you find this NEW app section useful, whether you’re at home reading the latest blog post or out in the wild hunting the current active MOBs!

Munzee on!

We’re Not Making Googly Eyes at You — It’s Just these 20/20 Vision Munzees!

It’s hard to stay sane when you’re cooped up inside all day! We think the best way to fend off a bout of the QRaZEEs is by staying positive and active. If you are allowed to roam about your neighborhood for some fresh air, you might find a rare surprise waiting for you! Our seventh 20/20 Vision Munzee is guaranteed to elicit some giggles from those who dare to look upon your face! These springy accessories were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Now you’ll really be able to keep an eye on things!

Only four pairs of Joke Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing the Joke Glasses will add this comical Silly Sight badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

The myriad personality types out there mean there are as many different senses of humor. In recent years, the Dad joke has risen in popularity, but there are still many out there who prefer a more subtle humor. Regardless, it’s hard not to laugh at someone wearing a quality pair of Joke Glasses. We think the beauty lies in the realistic eyeball popping out of the wearer’s face, only to be dragged back up and then back down again due to the attached spring. It’s just so over-the-top that laughing is a gut reaction!

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these bouncy bifocals!

Show us how you Munzee! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and mention us on Facebook (@Munzee) or Instagram (@munzeeapp). Good luck, and Munzee on!

This New Munzee Type is No Joke!

As we enter into our third week of self-quarantine / working from home we at MHQ have been racking our brains to think of more ways to make the game accessible for those who can’t be out and about. From our past surveys, we know that Prize Wheels are quite popular amongst our players, so we decided to introduce a new virtual munzee type inspired by them!

Say hello to the snazziest gameshow host around- Sir Prize Wheel! 

We are happy to announce the Sir Prize Wheel Munzee is now available for purchase! In case the name wasn’t obvious enough this new virtual type works like a combination of Surprise and Prize Wheel Munzees. You can pick up 20 Sir Prize Wheel Munzees every 10 days from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE.

Sir Prize Wheel Munzee Details

The Sir Prize Wheel joins the Gaming Munzees as a virtual type. Once the Sir Prize Wheel is captured, he will award you points and a prize either by adding items to your inventory (like Zeds!) OR scattering a special munzee type nearby, similar to how the current Air Mysteries work. Make sure to read the popup that appears after capturing this munzee carefully so you know what you got! The owner of the munzee also has a chance to receive prizes as part of the CapOn!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, not blastable

Updated addition: Proximity: 300 feet to any other SPW, 150 feet any other type of your own, 50 feet to any other munzee from different owner.

Deploy: 200 points

Capture: 100 points + Random prize

CapOn: 50 points + Random CapOn prize possible

To access the Sir Prize Wheel munzee, turn on your “Virtual – Gaming” filter. To access any scatters, turn on your “All Expiring Specials” filter. For more information on the Sir Prize Wheel Munzee, you can check out our Help Guide article.

As part of this launch we are also adding the Surprise Munzee to the Gaming category, so that is TWO new virtual gaming types! Due to these new types we’ve updated the clan requirements in the app and on the previous blog. The Surprise Munzee also has a new, lower price and you can purchase those HERE! You can also shop the entire Gaming Munzee collection HERE!

Badges

In honor of April Fools Day we will also be releasing a new line of badges in the next week or so! Stay tuned for more information, we promise it’s no joke!

Munzee on!

MHQ Has No Shortage of Toilet Paper!

Last month, Flat Matt’s luck was put to the test and he seemed to come out unscathed, thanks to all of the unlucky 13’s you captured! But why is Flat Matt always getting the attention? This month, we think it’s time to show Flat Lou some love! Starting at 11:11 MHQ on March 31st, Lou Roll specials will begin bouncing around the map until 23:11 MHQ on April 13th.

Lou Roll Details

Before you think we’re unfairly poking fun at Louise, just know this was her idea! Flat Lou has been sponsored by a toilet paper company for her upcoming race. It may not be the most extravagant of sponsors, but she does get all the two-ply she wants!

401 of these specials will bounce to all Flat Lous and Virtual Colors every 4 hours or when captured. Each roll will be worth 140 points for Capture and 41 points for CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out!

These plush MOBs will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtual Colors! However, they will not be blastable. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

Additionally, there will be four badges to earn based on the number of Lou Roll specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 4 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Rare Roll-Capture 1 Lou Roll Special

Both Lou Rolls and loo rolls are in rare supply these days! We don’t suggest hoarding, but you might want to have a couple extra rolls around in case of a rainy day. Are there slang terms for “toilet paper” where you’re from? Please share in the comments of our social posts!

We hope these specials help to lighten your load, wherever you are!

Munzee on!

ZeeOps- Operation: Lockdown (April 2020)

A few weeks ago, we announced that there would be no ZeeOps for the month of March. Like the rest of the world, ZeeOps HQ was caught off-guard by the spread of COVID-19. Agents were ordered to limit their time outdoors and prepare for remote assignments. But things never go as smoothly as we hope. Just as our March missions were ready to be released, a nasty new virus was detected in our computing systems, originating from a simple “Hello World” text file stored on an agent’s computer.

Luckily, Director Zee has successfully recovered thanks to all of your hard work in February and having the month of March off! Though he is a bit shaken from his recent experiences, he is ready to face this new threat and hopes he can rely on your support. While the order to limit your time outdoors is still in place, the staff at ZeeOps HQ have identified some core operations that you’ll be able to complete remotely to help identify the structure of this virtual virus and protect the currently uninfected files.

April Flat Friends and QRewzdays Schedules!

The future is uncertain, but the schedules we have planned for April are a sure thing! These schedules are easy to remember! We hope you’ll enjoy capping these virtual and physical munzees while practicing careful Social DistanZEEing this month! Remember to follow your local guidelines and Stay Home if required.

April Flat Schedule

As we mentioned in March’s schedule, the Flat Friends want to visit as many Fall into Spring events as possible! So instead of being on the map through April 19th, they will now be on the map the entire month! We know many events are delayed further into the future so we’ll continue to monitor each month! Shown in list format, April 2020’s Flat Friends schedules look like:

Flat Matt

  • Wednesday, April 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Thursday, April 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

Flat Rob

  • Wednesday, April 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Thursday, April 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

Flat Lou

  • Wednesday, April 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Thursday, April 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

Flat Hammock

  • Wednesday, April 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Thursday, April 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

April QRewsday Schedule

In addition to our Flat Friends schedule, you can mark your calendars for April QRewsdays to earn some QRewzee points! We are living in odd times so we thought it might be nice to have QRewzees on the map a bit more often, but not EVERY day. So we’ve chosen the odd numbered days in the month of April.

The April QRewsdays begin at 00:01 MHQ time through 23:59 MHQ time on the same day and are as follows:  April 1, 2 (always have this non-clan day) 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23,25, 27, 29

Remember that QRew and ZeeQRew status can be earned or revoked at 00:01 MHQ time on the 1st and 15th, so plan accordingly if you want to achieve or retain either title!

Munzee on!

March 2020 GOTM Winners + April POTM Requirements!

March has been a totally QRaZEE month. It started out well — we released some new packs in the store to help out with Clan Wars requirements, and released the Destination Renovation update after getting some feedback from players at Munzee Madness 9. Then, the COVID-19 situation escalated, and we scrambled to alter our plans so that they could be more accessible to players in a variety of living conditions. Some quick thinking by our staff members yielded the ongoing Social DistanZEEing event, which includes the popular Eventzee Couch Potato Party!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the March Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for March Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for April POTM! The badges for March GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early April, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

March GOTM

This month, we chose gardens that represent our current state of affairs. Remember that all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award the Patchwork quilt NL, designed by sverlaan, and Scared Kitty Garden, designed by Ovaldas and BituX, as our winning March GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Patchwork quilt NL by sverlaan in Woudenberg, Netherlands

Look at the variety of munzee types featured in this garden! This is definitely a must-visit if you’re in the area!

This MASSIVE garden has been on our list for a while — we’ve just been waiting for the right time to recognize it! The pattern certainly does remind us of a cozy, comfortable quilt, maybe one we’ve been snuggling under during these days we’ve been stuck at home!

Scared Kitty Garden by Ovaldas and BituX in Vilnius, Lithuania

This cute, simple kitty garden is facing a larger cat garden that seems to be in progress — will there be more additions to its family?

This garden reminded us of a certain viral video showing a cat that is obviously displeased with its owners being home during this time of self quarantine. Don’t forget that our animal friends need to adjust to this new situation as well!

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

March POTM

March POTM’s requirements asked players to help clean up the map by capping or deploying 200 greenies OR capping 100 QRewzees. While some players were able to earn this badge right at the start of March, others may have had a more difficult time, especially in the second half of the month.

Congratulations to all the players who were able to meet the requirements! You can expect to see the badge in early April. If you were not able to meet the requirements, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for cleaning up the map and growing the game! While we may not be able to enjoy your efforts immediately, we certainly will once these tough times pass!

April POTM Requirements

For April’s POTM we wanted to increase participation with our Global QRantine event. If you cap all of the munzees deployed by the event account within April, you’ll receive the POTM badge! The event begins April 2nd!

Click [I’m Going] on the calendar page HERE!

Cap all the deploys of the event account HERE!

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

If you were keeping up with the Social DistanZEEing event account’s deploys, you may remember some munzees only being available for a limited time. There may be similar munzees deployed in April, so be on your toes!

Munzee on!

Maybe You’ll Spot the Phantom of the Opera with these 20/20 Vision Munzees!

So you finally bit the bullet and bought 2 tickets to that thing you love. Unfortunately, you got the worst seats in the house. Our sixth 20/20 Vision Munzee will let you experience the show as if you were right in front of the stage! These elegant magnifiers were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Maybe your bird’s-eye view won’t be so bad after all!

Only three pairs of Theatre Binoculars will be deployed, and they will bounce to all colors of virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing the Theatre Binoculars will add this classy Stage Sight badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

 

As of March 16, The Metropolitan Opera has been streaming a new opera each night for FREE on their homepage! A few, such as Carmen, Tristan und Isolde, and Macbeth are perhaps the most-well known to the general public, but this is a great opportunity to become a little more cultured and give the other lesser-known operas a shot! At the time of writing, these free operas are scheduled up until April 5th! While you won’t need Theatre Binoculars to view them, if you are lucky enough to own a pair, why not hold them in one hand as you watch? It’ll probably be a great arm workout!

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these trendy lenses!

Show us how you Munzee! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and mention us on Facebook (@Munzee) or Instagram (@munzeeapp). Good luck, and Munzee on!

Elekter Joins Munzee as the Newest Pouch Creature!

The increase in positively-charged munzees seems to have drawn out a charismatic — dare we say, electric — new addition to the Munzee universe. Please welcome our latest Player Owned Bouncer (POB) to the game, as Elekter prepares to join the ranks of Magnetus, Puffle, and other Pouch Creatures!

You can shop Elekter HERE and the Pouch Creature collection HERE, but be sure to purchase before the sale expires!

Pouch Creatures are bouncing munzees based on items from our sister app, WallaBee. Like the Puffle, Elekter is a virtual-only Pouch Creature. It bounces to Virtual Munzees of all colors as well as Electric Mystery Munzees. Our newest Pouch Creature will cost $20 from the Freeze Tag Online Store. It will go live for sale today (March 25th) at 10:00 MHQ time! Elekter will be for sale until 10:00 April 1st, along with a number of our previous Pouch Creatures!

Like Tuli, Vesi, and Muru, Elekter is an evolving Pouch Creature that will change icons depending on the number of captures in a daily streak. After a specified number of total captures, the Pouch Creatures will “level up” when daily streaks are attained.

The timeframe is as follows:

  • Level 1: 0 or 1 day of Capture (Day 2 new level)
  • Level 2: 2 days of Capture in a row (Day 3 new level)
  • Level 3: 3 or more days of Capture in a row

When the streak is broken, the Pouch Creature will revert to Level 1.

Elekter Details

Elekter joins the current line of Pouch Creatures as a virtual munzee that will bounce to Virtuals and Electric Mystery Munzees every 6 hours or when capped. Deploying an Elekter will earn you 250 points. The Capture and CapOn points will vary per level as follows:

  • Elekter (Level 1)
    • Capture: 200 points
    • CapOn: 100 Points
    • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points
  • Elekjoud (Level 2)
    • Capture: 300 points
    • CapOn: 200 Points
    • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points
  • Elektrivool (Level 3)
    • Capture: 500 points
    • CapOn: 300 points
    • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

When the Bouncer Upgrade credit is used, your Elekter will also have the ability to be “nudged” to a new munzee. You can use the nudge feature up to three times a day (MHQ 24-hour day), but only after your munzee has sat for at least 3 hours. Additionally, the Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Elekter! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct, and be mindful of maintaining a family friendly environment!

Elekter will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Elekter on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Elekter visits you. Elekter will be non-blastable. The capture radius is 500 ft (152.4 m). It will be attracted to Virtual Magnets ONLY as Elekter (Level 1). You can access Elekter under the “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Pouch Creatures” filters.

New Badges!

There will be a number of badges to enjoy along with Elekter, including the following Deploy badge:

Elekter Pouch Creature Munzee- Deploy Elekter Pouch Creature Munzee.

Additionally there will be three badges to earn for Elekter, Elekjoud, and Elektrivool for a total of 9 additional Capture badges. The first badge per each level will appear as follows:

If you want to brush up on any Pouch Creature knowledge, be sure to check out our Help Guide! Remember to stock up on Virtual Magnets and deploy an Electric Munzee nearby to attract other players’ Elekters. Although a lot of us are still stuck indoors, we think the future is bright with Elekter!

Munzee on!

April 2020’s Resolution Can Be Done From The Comfort of Your Home!

It’s almost April, and while many of us are confined to our homes, that doesn’t mean our fitness has to suffer! As we announced in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of being active. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to practicing a different exercise. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. This month’s badge may be tricky to get, but we believe in you!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. For April we thought that popular aerobic exercises would be a good way to maintain fitness, indoors or out! Time to rock those colorful sweatbands, arm warmers, leg warmers, and leotards!

Why are aerobic exercises important?

Aerobic exercises get your blood pumping! Good circulation is important as it means nutrients from the food you eat, the beverages you drink, and the air you breathe are more quickly delivered to your entire body, especially the extremities.

Healthline points out that, compared to exercises such as those featured in last month’s Resolution, “You perform aerobic exercises for a sustained period of time,” and additionally, “The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes or more of aerobic exercise five or more days each week. That can be broken up, though. For example, you can take three, 10-minute walks throughout the day.” The article goes on to recommend 10 aerobic exercises you can try, but here’s our own (edited and slightly Munzee-fied) version of that list:

  1. Jumping to reach those QR codes that tall players stuck on signs
  2. Circuit of:
    1. Sasquatch Yeti Squats
    2. Leprechaun Lunges
    3. Pegasus Pushups
    4. Dragon Dips
    5. Tuli Twist
  3. Running or jogging to the nearest bouncer
  4. Walking the loop of Greenies and Elementals around your house
  5. Swimming with Mermaids and Sirens
  6. Biking and blasting
  7. Picking up each piece of litter you see one by one and tossing it into a trash can (bonus points if you had to chase after several tiny square sticker backings that got blown away by the wind)
  8. Kickboxing other Munzee players so that you can be FTC
  9. ZEEumba
  10. Cutting sheet after sheet of Munzee stickers into individual pieces

Are you ready to break a sweat between scanning QR codes? Before you attempt any exercise, it’s always a good idea to consult your doctor**. Good luck and Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead! 

** MUNZEE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY EXERCISE-RELATED INJURIES
