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 on!

Ninja-bread Men Details

We have four flavors of bouncing MOB specials (2 virtual, 2 physical) from now all the way until December 18 at 23:59 MHQ time! These cookie karate masters land on Greenies and Virtuals respectively, but both also land on certain “baking ingredients” Evolution Munzees as well! Virtual Ninja-Bread Men will land on all levels of Egg Evolution Munzees and physical Ninja-Bread Men will land on all levels of Milk Evolution Munzees. The specials will bounce every 6 hours or when captured. 1,875 of these specials have been released (roughly 468 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.

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!

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.

MH-Qlue Makes for a Real Whodunnit!

Breaking news, Munzers! The CzeeO has been attacked and kidnapped at MHQ, and now you have to find out whodunnit before it’s too late! A total of 1,949 MH-Qlue specials will hit the map from October 22 at 00:01 MHQ time through November 6 at 23:59 MHQ time for over two weeks of mystery and fun!

The MH-Qlue specials will feature 1 physical type and 3 virtual scatter types. The virtuals will NOT be blastable, so you’re going to have to get out there to earn them! Ready to hear the details of this multi-layered game within a game? Detectives, let’s dive right in!

MH-Qlue Special

There will be one MH-Qlue bouncing type that bounces to Greenies, Mystery Munzees, and physical Elemental Mystery Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. They WILL be attracted to Munzee Magnets (also available in 5 packs) on Greenies. When capped, the MH-Qlue special will scatter 3 virtual card icons nearby.

Points:

  • Capture: 70 points
  • Cap On: 70 points

The MH-Qlue physical bouncer will bounce to the following:

  • Greenies
  • Mystery Munzees
  • Fire Mystery Munzees
  • Water Mystery Munzees
  • Ice Mystery Munzees
  • Earth Mystery Munzees

Virtual Card Scatters

After an MH-Qlue Special is capped, one of each card type will be deployed as a virtual scatter within 700 feet. These will be visible to everyone for 1 hour or until it is captured. All virtual scatters will be worth 49 Capture points each. The cards will appear on the map as follows:

When the player caps a card, they will randomly earn one of four icons, similar to the Magic 8 Ball specials. Each card type will have four different possibilities. While you might have guessed that it was Rob with the Ban Hammer at MHQ, the actual Suspect Cards will feature the following 4 persons of interest:

Suspect Cards

    • University Professor Corn
    • Mister Zee
    • Mademoiselle Eventa
    • General Green E.

However, the Ban Hammer is one of the weapon options at hand. The 4 Weapons Cards will appear as follows:

Weapon Cards

  • Ban Hammer
  • External Battery
  • Unicorn Horn
  • Globe

Lastly, are you ready to determine the scene of the crime? The 4 Crime Scene Cards will appear as follows:

Crime Scene Cards 

    • The Production Room
    • The Videocast Studio
    • The Munzee Museum
    • The CzeeO’s Office

As you earn different pairings you’ll have different scenarios as to what happened to the CzeeO. Was he attacked in the Munzee Museum, with the Unicorn Horn, by Mademoiselle Eventa? Perhaps it was Uni Professor Corn, with the External Battery, in The Videocast Studio? We’ll reveal the true series of events once the specials have left the map, but in the meantime capture as many clues as you can!

Badges

What’s a game of amateur detective without a badge? Fortunately we have more than one badge in store for this whodunnit special! There are 3 badges you can earn for MH-Qlue captures, though we’re only going to reveal the first in the series. It will appear as follows:

MH-Qlue: Board To Death- Capture one MH-Qlue Special

To discover the rest of the badges, you’ll just have to put your detective skills to the test! What do you think⁠— can you help us find out what happened to the CzeeO?!

Munzee on!
