Towel Day 2018 Specials

DON’T PANIC.

We’ve got a new special in celebration of the fandom holiday Towel Day! On May 25th each year fans of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy” series carry towels in remembrance of author Douglas Adam’s work. Why towels you may ask? Well in Adam’s own words “A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value… More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value.”

Since we like to celebrate things a bit early, starting May 18th at 00:01 MHQ time 1,979 Munzee Towel Day Specials will be on the map until May 27th at 23:59 on . These specials will bounce on greenies every six hours or when capped. As we all know, a towel with a “Thumbs Up” is the universal symbol for intergalactic hitchhikers, so when you cap a Munzee Towel Special three Hitchhiker Specials will be scattered to greenies within a 1/2 mile for 2 hours or when capped. Better pick up those hitchhikers before somebody like a Vogon or a pair of mice does. That would be unfortunate.

Points: 

Towel Day Special:
Capture/Cap-On: Split of 42 with minimum of 5.

Hitchhiker Special:

Capture: 21
Cap-On: 21

You’ll earn a badge for capturing one of the Towel Day Specials, but we’re going to keep the artwork a surprise because it’s THAT COOL. How cool? So cool that it will definitely live up to the hype. What could possibly go wrong with hyping up artwork that has certainly already been completed?

Towel Day Specials will be attracted to Munzee Magnets so be sure to stock up on those in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

You CAN capture these specials on your own greenies and both Specials will count toward the Specials Hunter badges as well.

Good luck on your travels and remember to bring a towel. #MunzeeOn #TowelDay2018

Announcing Rock, Paper, Scissors Badges!

Rock. Paper. Scissors. SHOOT!

We’re excited to announce a new line of badges for capturing and deploying Rock, Paper, Scissors Munzees! As part of the gaming line, RPS Munzees actually include a mini game of Rock, Paper, Scissors which you can earn more points for winning. Since this is such a unique type of Munzee there’s a special third line of badges for winning games of RPS too!

We’ll just show the first of each badge line for now, but you can probably guess the themes for each:

Capture:

Paper Boy- Capture 10 Rock Paper Scissors Munzees

Deploy:

Rock vs Scissors- Deploy 1 Rock Paper Scissors Munzee

Winning:

Bronze Paper- Win 1 game of Rock Paper Scissors.

These badges won’t be easy to come by, but they are retroactive, so your past captures, deploys and wins will count toward these. The badges are now live and available to earn.

Help out your fellow players by deploying RPS stickers as well! For a limited time you can purchase 5 RPS Munzees for $3.50 (regularly $5) in the Munzee Online Store.

You can also pick up another gaming munzee on sale too. For a limited time Prize Wheel 5 packs are on sale for $17.50 (regularly $25). These are great if you still need to earn the Prize Wheels badges. Who knows, maybe that badge line will be extended in the future too…

The sale will run until Monday at 10:00 MHQ time, so get rocking n’ rolling!

Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Ready To Ride with Flat Lou?

UPDATE: Flat Lou is now for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Go HERE to get yours! 

Our Flat friends, Flat Rob and Flat Matt, have become a staple of the game and we’re excited to announce a certain flat female is joining their ranks- say hello to Flat Lou!

Three years ago Louise Gibson took over the management of our worldwide player run events. She streamlined the process, improved communication, and provided excellent customer service around the clock in her first few weeks. Over the course of her three years Louise has interacted with hundreds of different player hosts, managing over 1500 unique events.  After three years as an extraordinary Events Manager, she has more than earned her spot among her two-dimensional pals.

The first Flat Lou will be released as a permanent special at Tower Bridge in London, England on May 1st at 15:00 MHQ and they’ll go on sale at the same time in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Flat Lous work much like the other Flats, but there are some differences.

As a not-so-flat-footed cyclist, Flat Lous will be activated at various times including when Louise is racing, when she attends Munzee events, major event seasons and more. Please note that all scheduled times are based on MHQ time and are subject to change. To start things off with a bang though, Flat Lous will be active for the entire month of May.

Another thing that makes Flat Lou so special is that she helps give back too! In connection to Freeze Tag’s sponsorship of the American Diabetes Association, $0.25 of each Flat Lou sale will be donated to ADA to help diabetes research and awareness. Flat Lous will also be active during each Tour de Cure race weekend throughout the year as well.

Flat Lou virtual pieces will be for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store tomorrow for $4.25, and there will also be a limited amount of the Flat Trio design Personal Munzee tags too. Premium members can also expect a free Flat Lou tomorrow at 17:01 MHQ as well. You can sign up for a Premium Membership at HERE.

Here is the general breakdown of Flat Lous:

Points:

Deploy – 19 Points
Cap/CapOn – Split 78 points with a minimum of 10 points.

Proximity: 

Flat Lous’ proximity is not affected by other munzees except other Flats. Flat Lous must be 50ft from other players’ deploys and 150ft from your own deploys.

You’ll also be able to earn a variety of badges for capturing and deploying Flat Lous.

Deploy Badges:

Capture Badges:

We’re also excited to announce that we’re launching a new emerald garden at Louise’s favorite training site- Richmond Park in London! The roads around the park even make a pin shape too! Check out the map HERE. You can purchase one of the emerald garden pins, Flat Lous, and personal tags in the Freeze Tag Online Store tomorrow, May 1st at 15:00 MHQ.

The ceLOUbration continues around the world with special player-run Louise Gibson Appreciation Society (LGAS) events throughout May. These events have been entirely set up by player hosts to show their appreciation for Louise’s event management efforts. Find the LGAS events on the Munzee Calendar page, and let them know if you’d like to join in the fun!

Thank you all for showing our Flat friends so much love! We know Flat Lou will make a great addition to the family. Munzee on!

Announcing Greenie Capture Badges!

We’re continuing this Spring’s theme of going green! We’re excited to announce new badges for capturing good ole’ greenies. Despite being the cornerstone of the game, this is actually the first line of badges we have released for strictly capturing Generic Munzees (AKA Greenies). How crazy is that? Better late than never right?

Green Gamer Lv 1- Capture 100 Generic Munzees AKA Greenies.

This new line of badges is retroactive, so those of you who have been capping these stickers for the better part of a decade can bask in the glory. You’ll only be able to see the requirements of one badge at a time until you earn it, but we think some of the more experienced players will be pleasantly surprised at the challenges this presents. The badges are now live and available to earn.

Please note that capturing Recycle Munzees will not count toward these badges, only active Greenies.

With these new Greenie capture badges, a new update, a new scanner and some (old) stickers on sale, help out your fellow players and deploy some Greenies too!

Good luck in your adventures and Munzee on!

Updated Recycle Badges!

Just in time for this month’s Clan Wars, we’re excited to announce new badges for Capturing Recycle Munzees!

This is an extension of the current Recycle line, which includes badges for capturing 1, 50, and 100 Recycle Icons. We are adding badges for capturing 500, 1,000, 2,500, and 5,000 Recycle Icons, which will be available starting at 00:01 MHQ time on April 3rd.

These badges ARE retroactive, but will be hidden until you earn them.

As a quick reminder, Recycle Icons appear on certain munzees that haven’t been capped in 365 days. This is a “one and done” special icon. Once the icon is capped, the Munzee returns to its normal icon. In other words this is a race for you to be first in your area to get to the icon. You CAN capture this icon on munzees that you have capped before. You CANNOT capture this icon on your own munzees. The affected munzees are:

  • Greenies
  • All Physical Jewels
  • All Physical Clan Weapons
  • Physical Mysteries
  • Premium Munzees

Recycle Icons will be on the map from 00:01 MHQ Time on Tuesday, April 3rd through 23:59 MHQ time on Monday, April 30th.

Good luck, grow the map and go green!

ZeeOps: April 2018 Missions

Agents, with the battle between The First Clan and The Rising Sons looming, it seems everyone is choosing allegiances. Although ZeeOps HQ is firmly a neutral party, it’s important we keep track of other possible factions. Look into the Authorized Reseller group known as R.U.M. for any possible collusion.

Go To Battle With The Ogre AlternaMyth!

Leprechauns may be better known for their greenie-ness in March, but this month we’re excited to introduce you all to a not-so-jolly green giant! Say hello to the Ogre AlternaMyth Munzee!

As with the other AlternaMyths these Mythological Munzees are deployed on behalf of our HQ staff’s accounts, thus super rare. You’ll get 200 points for capping the Ogre. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of the Ogre’s ferocious friend the Cyclops.

As the AlternaMyth to the Cyclops Mythological Munzee the Ogre’s hunger for jewels is only overcome by his thirst for battle!  Ogres are attracted to greenies, physical and virtual Jewel Munzees, as well as physical and virtual Clan Weapon Munzees*.

  • Greenies
  • Amethyst (V)
  • Sapphire (V)
  • Diamond
  • Ruby
  • Pink Diamond
  • Topaz
  • Aquamarine
  • Mace
  • Longsword
  • Battle Axe
  • The Hammer
  • Crossbow (V)

*Ogres are not currently attracted to Catapult or Boulder Munzees, but may be in the future. 

Ogres can be a bit tough to handle, but you might be able to trap one with a Munzee Magnet! You can also show your Ogre pride with a new decal sticker. You can find Magnets, decals stickers, Jewel Munzees and more in the online store! 

Capturing an Ogre will also count towards the Myth Collector badges so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those ferocious fighters.

Good luck on your journey and remember to Go Green!

Introducing the new Temporary Virtual!

We’re excited to announce a new product called the Temporary Virtual! This new virtual item would allow players to deploy in areas that would usually not be beneficial to place a more expensive game piece or to help other players hit goals.

Much like Flat Robs and Flat Matts. these new items will be on a new layer of the map, so you don’t have to worry about trying to deploy in areas that are already overrun with other munzees. This will be especially helpful for deploying at high profile events like Munzee Madness this weekend in Southern California!

These new items are currently for sale in the Munzee Online Store and available on Quick Deploy as of 10:00 MHQ!

Check out the stats below to learn more! **Particularly take note of how long you have to deploy these before they are auto-archived.

We love that our worldwide community works together to help one another reach their goals, whether that’s Clan Wars, ZeeOps, Events or something else entirely. We think the new Temporary Virtual will be a great tool for helping us all grow the game- even if it’s temporarily!

Thank you all for everything you do. Munzee on!
