MHQ is Throwing Out Some Boomerang Bouncers!

If you thought the Aussie Animals were the only Australian-themed bouncers you were going to get, guess again! These bouncers are both beautiful and potentially deadly — you may recall that boomerangs were originally used by Australian Aboriginal tribes as hunting weapons! Please exercise extreme caution as you make your approach — we make no guarantees on our aim!

Boomerang Details

We have six designs of bouncing MOB specials (3 virtual, 3 physical) flying around the world from now all the way until February 9 at 23:59 MHQ time! These wooden wonders land on Greenies and Virtuals respectively, but both also land on their corresponding Elemental Munzees as well! Virtual Boomerangs will land on Air Mystery Munzees and physical Boomerangs will land on Earth Mystery Munzees. The specials will bounce every 6 hours or when captured. 756 of these specials have been released (126 of each type) for plenty of capping opportunities!

The physical specials will be attracted to Munzee Magnets on Greenies, while the virtual specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virts. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Physical Specials

The physical specials include the Root Runner Boomerang, the Country Crawler Boomerang, and the Great Dividing Boomerang. These physical bouncers will land on the following:

  • Greenies
  • Earth Mystery Munzees

The physical bouncing specials will all be worth 261 points for the Capture and 75 points for the Host.

Virtual Specials

The virtual specials include the Parting Sea Boomerang, the Sunsetter Boomerang, and the Coral Catcher Boomerang. These virtual bouncers will land on the following:

  • All colors of Virtual Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees

These virtual bouncing specials will all be worth 126 points for the Capture and 75 points for the Host.

Badges

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Boomerang specials. Similar to our Aussie Animals, the artwork for these badges is based on items from our sister app WallaBee! 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:

We hope these bouncers will fly to a munzee near you!

Munzee on!

Elvis’s Glasses Have Left the Building!

It’s a well-known fact in the Munzee community that we are fans of the The King. Dylan has even graced an event in his likeness! Following the success of last week’s special Spectacular Spectacles, our second 20/20 Vision Munzee will add a little rock-and-roll to your wardrobe with its conveniently attached sideburns! These beauties were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Time to fry up some peanut butter and banana sandwiches!

Only one pair of The King’s Sunglasses will be deployed, and it will bounce to all colors of virtual munzees 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 King’s Sunglasses will add this rockin’ T-See-B 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.

Elvis was a prolific artist, releasing many timeless classics such as “Burning Love,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” and “Hound Dog”! His talent also translated well to both the big and small screens, racking up quite a few film and TV credits. If you’ve experienced every piece of media about Elvis, but still want more, you may be excited to hear a new biopic is scheduled for release next year!

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!

Foresight is 20/20 with these New Specials!

This Throwback Thursday harkens back to the joys of yesteryear with an equally special announcement. Following the success of last year’s Global Grub specials, we are excited to announce that our first of two dozen 20/20 Vision specials for the year will be launching this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. If you use reading glasses, make sure you have them equipped so you can learn all about these special accessories!

The 20/20 Vision specials are very rare munzees that will bounce around the world for the remainder of the year. That means you’ll be spending the next twelve months capturing pins featuring 24 different pairs of glasses in order to earn their corresponding badges. We hope spotting these rare munzees will help to train and improve your vision!

Our first 20/20 Vision special to launch is the Spectacular Spectacles Munzee! This physical munzee, features a pair of plain black frames. These may seem a little basic, but don’t worry there’s all sorts of eye-catching eyewear in store! Only one will be deployed, and it will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 


Points:

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

Players will earn a badge for each different 20/20 Vision Munzee they capture starting with the Perfect Vision badge for capturing the Spectacular Spectacles pin! Down the line, we’ll also be putting out an overall capture line, so stay tuned for more.

Each 20/20 Vision Munzee will go live at 15:00 MHQ on their assigned day. We’re not announcing when each launch will be, but we expect to release a couple specials each month.

All 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. Until then, you’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own. Although there is only one Spectacular Spectacles 20/20 Vision Special, future releases may include more. You’ll just have to wait and see! Some of these specials will be physical, while others will be virtual. Keep in mind that virtuals will not be blastable.

If this latest update has you excited, you’re in luck. We will be launching our second 20/20 Vision special — this one inspired by an iconic celebrity — next week, so stay tuned! 

Don’t forget, we want to see you playing! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and tag us on Facebook or Instagram. Good luck, and Munzee on!

Alongside our Ho Ho Hoedown Christmas Events, these specials are a holiday tribute to Munzee’s Texas roots. As you may have seen on our Facebook Page earlier today, our CZeeO is quite a caroler! We wanted to share his joy of Christmas music with all our players, so we came up with our very own “12 Days of Texmas” specials! The first day’s special is now on the map, but you’ll have to stay tuned each day to see what the newest special is!

Kringle’s Cowboy Hat Special

A new special will go live on each of the 12 Days (6 physical, 6 virtual), but at varying times each day — we want you to be surprised! All 12 specials will remain on the map until January 6 at 23:59 MHQ time. Depending on the special’s type, it will either bounce to greenies or virtuals every 6 hours or when captured, and be attracted to the corresponding Magnets.

A different number of bouncers will be released for each icon, but to start off 110 Kringle’s Cowboy Hats will be on the map until the 6th. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Points

We hope you’ll enjoy learning a new lyric each day! What other Texas themed holiday gifts might be in store? Y’all will just have to wait and find out!

Let Vietnam’s Global Grub Warm You Up!

The weather outside is frightful, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to feast! As we head into our final month for our Global Grub releases, we’re thrilled to announce the addition of Vietnam Global Grub specials to the map starting today at 15:00 MHQ time!

A total of 12 Vietnam Global Grub specials will be deployed. They will join other virtual Global Grub specials such as USA, Ukraine, FranceAustralia, and more! They will bounce to regular virtuals and colored virtuals every 12 hours or when captured.

Points

  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Every time a Global Grub special is captured, you will earn a badge featuring a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country. Capturing the Vietnam Global Grub will earn you the following special badge:

 

Pho is Vietnam’s answer to other countries’ popular noodle soups, such as the Japanese Ramen or Korean Ramyun. However, you’ll find they are vastly different — looking at the ingredients alone, you can see some clear differences. Pho noodles are made from rice flour, which gives them a slightly translucent white color. In addition, Pho puts the emphasis on fresh herbs and vegetables, which offer a lighter alternative for noodle soup fans!

The Global Grub specials will bounce around the globe for the remainder of the year before leaving the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ time. You will have until then to try your luck capturing these very rare specials. Don’t forget that our overall Global Grub capture line allows you more opportunities than ever to earn Global Grub badges!

We hope you have all enjoyed our Global Grub specials throughout the year! Let’s end 2019 in the tastiest way possible!

Munzee Celebrates Origami Day with All New Specials!

Have you noticed the Flat Friends have been playing with arts and crafts?!

While we’ve been mentioning the holiday season for a little while now, one special day that you might not have anticipated us celebrating happens to be the reason for our next specials! In honor of November 11th being Origami Day, we have a new set of bouncing specials that have started hitting the map!

You may have noticed the Flats’ arts and crafts project bouncing around the map already, but there are four types of the virtual MOBs. The Origami specials will be on the map from now until November 18th at 23:59 MHQ time to celebrate World Origami Day.

Origami Day celebrates the wonder of paper folding, both an exciting and restorative form of art. One of our 4 icons features an origami crane, an image symbolic of hope and healing through hardship. Folding 1,000 origami cranes is traditionally believed to grant one wish. Today these beliefs filter into charities revolving around this recognized symbol of hope. We’re launching these specials in accordance with this message, as well as to celebrate the beauty and fun of paper folding!

Origami Details

There will be 1,111 Origami specials (approximately 278 of each type) bouncing around the map. These specials will feature 4 virtual MOBs that will land on Virtuals and specific Flat Friends Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. If you checked out the November Flat Friends schedule, you might have noticed that Flat Friends will be active throughout the entire duration of these specials.

The 4 specials include:

  • Origami Crane, lands on Flat Robs and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Lily, lands on Flat Lous and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Boat, lands on Flat Matts and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Butterfly, lands on Flat Hammocks and all colors of virtuals (277 of these specials)

The points* distribution for these specials will be the same for all 4:

  • Capture: 111 points
  • CapOn (Host): 111 points

You can access these specials by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The Origami specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtuals.

Badges

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Origami 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:

Wishful Wrappings– Capture at least one of any type of Origami Special

We hope you’re ready to celebrate the wonders of origami with us!

Munzee on!

 

*During the initial testing of these new types some players may have seen double points on these captures, but this issue has been resolved. All Origami special captures will be worth 111 points.

Introducing the Treehouse and Magnet Burnout!

There are about to be a lot of happy Player Owned Bouncer owners, because our latest map addition is targeted to increase the number of caps on POBs while decreasing the clutter on the map. More points and less mess— what is this awesome new munzee called?! Please welcome the Treehouse Munzee to the map!

Treehouse Munzee

The Treehouse Munzee is a physical Destination Munzee that allows up to 6 POBs to land on it. This all new munzee fits into the Destination line of munzee types, but it also contains the ability to be captured once per player per 24 hour MHQ day just like Places Munzees! That’s right, the Treehouse Munzee means plenty of capping opportunities.

Does this extra special munzee sound familiar at all to some of you? Players who purchased the MHQ Bash King’s Court package have been awarded a Treehouse Munzee credit, which was included in the package as a new in-game item. The rest of you will have to wait a short time to pick up your Treehouse Munzees! They will be made available for purchase to the public sometime in the next week, but you can read about them now! Players will also be able to cap Treehouses deployed by King’s Court purchasers in the meantime, so there is still fun to be had!

Points:

  • Deploy: 100 points
  • Cap: 10 points + points for whatever POBs are in the Treehouse at the time of capture.
  • CapOn: 25 points

The deploy circle for Treehouses will be 1,000 feet (304.8 m) from the nearest Treehouse, all other normal 50/150 feet proximity rules apply. To access the Treehouse Munzee, turn on your Physical filter and find it under “Destinations”. It’s also included in the Premium filters under “All Mythologicals” and “All Expiring Specials”.

Please note the following special information about the Treehouse Munzee:

  • The Treehouse Icon will change to show the number of POBs hanging out. Players will see the base icon for 0, but then a 1-6 as more bouncers stop by.
  • This munzee can be capped once daily regardless of the number of POBs hanging out. New POB landings do NOT refresh the capture setting.
  • A Treehouse will attract up to 6 POBs over time, but you can use a physical Munzee Magnet to draw a total of 6 POBs much quicker.
  • Only physical Myths and Variants will land on a Treehouse (No MOBs, TOBs, Pouch Creatures, Fancy Flats, or virtual Myths).
  • The Regular POB timer is still in effect. If a POB times out, it leaves the Treehouse and leaves an open spot for others to join.

Why use a Treehouse? This extra special munzee has the following awesome advantages:

  • Quick and high points
  • Easy access to multiple POB caps at once
  • The ability to share the love with other POB owners
  • Achieve POB clan requirements quicker

The Treehouse Munzee does not have a badge line at this time, but it will count toward the overall Destination capture line the first time you cap it. That means daily caps will not count toward badges, only the first time you cap it.

For more information about the Treehouse Munzee, how to deploy it, and exactly what types will land on it, check out our Help Guide article!

Magnet Burnout

In addition to the Treehouse Munzee, we’re excited to announce that we have removed the purchase limit on both physical and virtual Munzee Magnets! Now players can buy as many Munzee Magnets and Virtual Magnets as they like from the Freeze Tag Online Store. 

However, with the new update Greenies and Virtuals will only be able to be magnetized 3 times a day. After that, the munzee will be “burned out” and unable to be magnetized until the next MHQ day. This “burn out” is 3x per player, per MHQ day. In addition, we’ve made a small improvement to save space, so now when you magnetize a munzee, the magnet button will disappear until the magnet expires. That way there is more room to display the bouncer information!

The Magnet Burnout was created to encourage players to keep moving and not just magnetize the same munzee over and over again. There will be a timer on the burned out munzee to show how long you have to wait until it can be magnetized again!

Are you ready to have some fun with this awesome new game addition? Don’t forget to pick up the awesome new Treehouse munzee when it releases! For now watch the map and see if one gets deployed somewhere near you! You can also stock up on some Magnets and catch those bouncers!

Munzee on!

*Please note that when Treehouses go on sale to the public players will be limited to one purchase every 14 days.

Rob celebrates the Treehouse Munzee launch from the Mall of America in Minnesota, where he is attending player events.

Feast on a Classic with Portugal Global Grub!

The year is slowly starting to wind down, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to feast! With two and a half months left for our Global Grub releases, we’re thrilled to announce the addition of Portugal Global Grub specials to the map starting today at 15:00 MHQ time!

A total of 10 Portugal Global Grub specials will be deployed. They will join other virtual Global Grub specials such as USA, Ukraine, FranceAustralia, and more! They will bounce to regular virtuals and colored virtuals every 12 hours or when captured.

Points

Every time a Global Grub special is captured, you will earn a badge featuring a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country. Capturing the Portugal Global Grub will earn you the following special badge:

We bet you’ve never had a sandwich quite like a francesinha! This Portuguese sandwich is composed of bread, well-cured ham, fresh sausage, linguiça, roast meats, and steak. Then it’s doused in melted cheese and a thick, hot beer and tomato sauce. Essentially it’s the meat lovers dream, and not intended for those who are watching their figures. But, hey, life’s short! Try a francesinha!

The Global Grub specials will bounce around the globe for the remainder of the year before leaving the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ time. You will have until then to try your luck capturing these very rare specials.
