Combat Cabin Fever by Capturing Competing Camp Specials!

Whether or not you’re able to attend a Camp Munzee event near you, we want everyone to join in on the fun for our 9th Birthday! Get ready for some friendly competition as we pit our players against each other in Water Wars and Capture Zee Flag with Competing Camp specials!

Camp Competition

We’ve divided up active players randomly into 4 “Camps” to compete for prizes by capturing Competing Camp specials!

Will you wander into the wilderness with Camp Cap-A-Lot?

Perhaps you’re building pillow forts at home with Camp QRantine!

If it’s a bit chillier on your side of the world maybe you’re with Camp FrEEZ!

Or maybe you’re ready for interstellar exploration with Camp KenneZEE?

It’s up to you to lead your camp towards victory! This competition will be based on your camp’s overall Water Balloon and Flag bouncer captures. You can find out more about these specials below.

There will be prizes at stake each week, with the largest prizes awarded at the final check-in. Active players in all camps will receive a prize each week, but, as you may expect, the best prize will go to players in the 1st Place camp.

We don’t want to spoil all the prizes just yet, but we’re excited to announce that the winning camp overall will get, among other prizes, double points on certain Myth captures for a whole month!

The weekly winnings check-in schedule is as follows:

  • Thursday, July 16th at 12:00 MHQ
  • Thursday, July 23rd at 12:00 MHQ
  • Thursday, July 30th at 12:00 MHQ
  • Tuesday, August 11th at 12:00 MHQ — Final Award ceremony!

We’ll post on social media about the results each week, but to aid you in tracking your team’s progress we’ve partnered with CuppaZee to develop a leaderboard special for this event! You can check it out HERE!

Water Wars and Capture Zee Flag

Competing Camp specials are broken down into two different types of bouncers: Water Balloons and Camp Flags. Both types of specials are now live on the map for everyone and will remain available until August 9 at 23:59 MHQ. You can use the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters to more easily view them on the map. There are quite a few different specials, so check out a breakdown of each below!

Water Balloons

There will be 1,596 Water Balloon Specials available for capture on the map — that breaks down to 399 of each type. These are attracted to Virtual Magnets. None of these specials are blastable.

For the Camp Competition leaderboard each Water Balloon capture will count as 1 point. Please note that this is different than the actual capture points a player will earn. This secondary point structure is just for tallying the Camp leaderboard.

Landing Pads:

  • All Virtual Colors

Bounce Time:

  • every 4 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 99
  • CapOn: 19

Camp Flags

In addition to the Water Balloons there will also be four rare Camp Flag Specials bouncing around the map! There will be a total of 36 Camp Flag Specials available for capture — that breaks down to 9 of each type. More Camp Flags may be crafted as Camp Directors see fit! These are attracted to both Physical or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. These are officially tPOBs on the Munzee Camp account and are not blastable.

Since these are more rare each Camp Flag capture will count as 5 points on the Camp Competition leaderboard. As stated above please note that this is different than the actual capture points a player will earn. This secondary point structure is just for tallying the Camp leaderboard.

Landing Pads:

Bounce Times:

  • every 2 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 199
  • CapOn: 19

Badges

There are three lines of badges related to Competing Camp specials.

The first line is based on the Camp you’ve been assigned to — think of it as a Membership Badge! These badges feature a shirt with your camp’s logo so wear it with pride!

The second line is based on overall Water Balloon captures. These badges will give you some high-utility upgrades to your watery weapons. You can see the first badge in this line below:

Little Water Pistol – Capture at least one Water Balloon special of any type.

The third line of badges is based on capping unique Camp Flags. There will be one badge featuring the hidden home base for each camp. Make sure to cap at least one of each flag so you can be the king or queen of all four camps! You can sneak a peek at Camp Cap-A-Lot’s home base badge below:

Cap-A-Lot Cabin- Capture at least one Camp Cap-A-Lot Red Flag

Help cheer on your camp by purchasing Camp Spirit merch! The online collection includes a number of different products featuring the four camp logos. Whether you want to wear camp style with a shirt, or sip camp spirit with a tin mug, we’ve got you covered! Check out the whole collection HERE!

We hope this injects a bit of fun into your summer and gets you into the spirit of our Camp-themed 9th Birthday Celebration! If you love this artwork, look for it and so much more on our sister app, WallaBee!

Munzee on!

Aquatic Baby Animals Have Come Out to Play!

Once we started thinking about adding turtles and jellyfish to the game, we couldn’t stop coming up with more animals to add! Luckily, we found a few more animals already swimming around under the ZEE! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on June 5th, Baby Animal specials will begin bouncing around the map until 23:59 MHQ on June 21st.

Baby Animals Details

Players of our sister app, WallaBee, may recognize the art for some of these adorable bouncers, but we’ve added a few new ones to the mix as well! Can you guess which ones they are?

500 of these specials (100 of each released over the next 5 hours) will bounce to the following landing pads:

To shake things up a bit, we’ve set different timers for each Aquatic Baby Animal. Each type will bounce at the listed time below, or when captured.

  • Narwhal- Bounce every 6 hours
  • Penguin- Bounce every 5 hours
  • Crab- Bounce every 4 hours
  • Seal Pup- Bounce every 3 hours
  • Shark- Bounce every 2 hours

Hopefully these varying bounce times will allow everyone the opportunity to capture some of each type! They will be worth 150 points for Capture and 50 points for CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out!

The Baby Animals will be attracted to Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets, respectively. 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 six NEW badges to earn based on the number of Aquatic Baby Animal specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 6 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Marine Map- Capture 1 Aquatic Baby Animal of any type.

The beach may be a great place to relax, but an aquarium gives you the opportunity to see these animals up close! Do you have any photos of fond memories at an aquarium? Please post them in the comments! We’d love to see them!

We hope these aquatic cuties have swum into the depths of your heart!

Munzee on!

Celebrate the Heroes of Today With These Soaring Specials!

With both National Teacher’s Day AND National Nurse’s Day falling on the first week of May (not to mention Mother’s Day the week after!) we thought it would be a great idea to have our next specials honor essential workers! Their work makes it possible for many of us to function while staying safe at home, putting themselves at risk. Since “essential worker” sounds a bit bland, we decided to call them Hometown Heroes instead!

The first of our Hometown Heroes specials have just launched, at 12:00 MHQ time on May 18. The first icon is the one on the far left, Stay Safe. The quantities of masks will increase at random times, once launched, until they leave the map at 23:59 MHQ time on June 7! The hero masks will bounce every 6 hours or when capped. The heroes themselves will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. The Stay Safe icon will bounce every 2 hours or when capped.

Each of the 5 mask icons correspond to a different hero! Will you be able to collect them all?

Points

  • Capture: 200 points for each mask, 150 points for the Stay Safe icon, 100 points for each hero.
  • CapOn: 50 points for ALL Hometown Hero bouncers

The heroes will bounce to all virtual colors. The mask icons will bounce to amethyst, sapphire, air mystery, citrine, onyx, electric mystery, and Skyland. The Stay Safe icon will only bounce to the white virtual.
ALL Hometown Hero specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store.
You can access the Hometown Hero specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.
These virtual specials are not blastable.

Badges

There is also a line featuring 5 new badges to earn by capturing some of the different types of specials. They are not all available at the time of launch but will be added throughout the first week. We’re revealing one of these badges below:

The Super Stamper!- Capture at least one Delivery Mask special.

Can you collect all 5 badges? Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

World Laughter Day Specials — Because We All Need a Good Laugh Right Now!

We’re pretty sure most people have a bad case of cabin fever, so what better way to take your mind off of it than with some humor? World Laughter Day specials are out NOW, featuring jokes that have passed our staff’s (somewhat low) standards! (Note: Freeze Tag is not liable for any head injuries sustained after reading a corny World Laughter Day joke 😉.)

Our World Laughter Day specials will launch at 10:00 MHQ time on May 1, with 503 hitting the map until 23:59 MHQ time on May 17! Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, there are a possibility of 10 different icons that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Greeting Cards work. Also similar to our Magic 8 Ball special last year! They will bounce around every 303 minutes or when capped.

Each of the 10 icons will correspond to a different joke! Will you be able to collect them all?

Points

  • Capture: 53 points
  • CapOn: 35 points

These Virtual Munzees will not be blastable. They will bounce to all virtual colors and be attracted to Virtual Magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the World Laughter Day specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Badges

There is also a line featuring 5 new badges to earn based off captures of World Laughter Day specials. The first badge in the series appears as follows:

Cheesy Chuckle- Capture 1 Joke Special of any type

One special badge can only be obtained on World Laughter Day (May 3) which you can see below:

Dose of Laughter- Capture at least one Joke Special of any type on World Laughter Day- May 3rd, 2020 (MHQ time zone).

It’s up to you to figure out the requirements for the remaining 3 badges! Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

MHQ Petting Zoo Animals Have Escaped!

It wouldn’t be spring at MHQ without some cute baby animals, but instead of playing it safe with tried-and-true pastels, we added a more colorful, nostalgic twist! Unfortunately, it seems that someone at MHQ (*cough* Flat Rob *cough*) didn’t check if the pens were secure, so now the animals have run amok! Starting at 11:11 MHQ on April 9th, Baby Animal specials will begin bouncing around the map until 23:59 MHQ on April 30th.

Baby Animals Details

Players of our sister app, WallaBee, may recognize the art for these adorable bouncers! We chose these 5 animals based on 3 factors: cuteness, cuddliness, and charisma. We hope they can provide a little virtual snuggle for those of you who really need it during this unprecedented time. Can you collect them all?

500 of these specials (100 of each) will bounce to all all colors of Virtual Munzees, Electric Mysteries, Surprises, Onyxes, and Citrines every 1 hour or when captured. Each animal will be worth 150 points for Capture and 50 points for CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out!

These colorful cuties will be attracted to Virtual Magnets! 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 five badges to earn based on the number of Baby Animals specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 5 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Sweet Stickers- Capture 1 Baby Animal Special of any type.

One way we’ve been amusing ourselves at home is digging through our garages for old toys — does this post inspire you to search through your forgotten troves? We’d love to see any treasures you find — please post them in the comments of our social posts so we can all see!

We hope you’ll fall in love with these furry friends!

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!

Best Dressed Fall into Spring Events Contest Details!

With the first Fall into Spring events kicking off this weekend*, we can’t wait to see how players celebrate the change in season! Similar to last year’s 8zees Best Dressed Contest, the event host will choose a winner at each event based on best themed attire. Event attendees will have 2 of 3 outfit options:

  • if it’s Spring where the event is being held, consider dressing in a Spring-themed outfit, e.g. florals, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, etc.
  • likewise, if it’ll be Fall where the event is being held, consider dressing in a Fall-themed outfit, e.g. leaves, golden and jewel tones, in-season fruits and vegetables
  • if you’re game for a more challenging option, consider dressing as one of the Mythological Munzees, such as those that appear on the Fall into Spring Event Package badges, or take inspiration from our staff members below!

L to R: Mari, hunniees, and Tamara at Registration Night for MH-Boo Bash! Mari is dressed as a Rainbow Unicorn while Tamara is dressed as a Pegasus.

It’s the event hosts’ responsibility to decide which attendee will win the Best Dressed badge. In order to earn the special badge for winning this costume contest, the event host must submit an entry to our Google Form, which we will provide to each host. Unfortunately we will not be able to award any Best Dressed badges without a form submission, so be sure to get them in! You can see the artwork for the badge below!

Featuring another ethereal goddess, Trish, who is responsible for a lot of our event artwork! She and Louise are a dynamic Event Goddess duo!

We’ll share some of our favorite player outfits to the official Munzee social media pages throughout March and April, but the badge will not be awarded until after the events have wrapped up. Then we’ll add all of the winners to a gallery on the Munzee Blog to announce when the badge has been awarded!

Don’t forget there’s still time to purchase Fall into Spring Event Packages, but Trish’s diary is filling up so if you want custom artwork you better act fast! Remember that we’ve extended the period for Fall into Spring Events up to and including the month of May! For those hosting events in the coming weeks please remember to use caution and follow local guidelines in regards to health concerns.

We’ve got an exciting season ahead of us, so stay tuned!

Munzee on!

*Event safety is up to the host of each event. Please follow community COVID-19 guidelines.

Chase ZEE Rainbow!

As stated in our post on Friday, we are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation, and stress that player safety is a top priority. We have a lot of fun things planned over the next few weeks, and are trying to consider the wide variety of situations our players are facing. Tweaks have been made to our original designs to accommodate this. That being said, we are not planning to stop rolling out new game pieces or app updates anytime soon! Our goal is to give you options to “Play your way” safely!

It seems the umbrella Flat Matt opened may come in handy, because Rainbows are here! Immediately following the Flat Day the 13th: Part 3 specials, we are happy to introduce our brand-new Rainbow Trail specials! Starting at 13:00 MHQ on March 17th, Rainbow Trail specials will begin bouncing around the map until 23:59 MHQ on March 31st.

Rainbow Trail Details

777 of these specials will bounce to Greenies, Shamrocks, and Earth Mystery munzees every 7 hours or when captured.

This cheerful arc will be worth 77 points for both the Capture and CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! As it is a physical MOB, it will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

When you capture a Rainbow Trail, up to three different Colored Zed Munzees will generate (like Feathers) and scatter within 1,000 feet. As we are aware that many players may be under quarantine, we’ve extended the capture radius from our original limit to 300 feet.

These munzees will stay on the map for 1 hour or when captured. Each Colored Zed will award 100 points AND potentially a small number of Zeds to your account! We thought this would be a fun way to accumulate some extra currency to go toward useful items like Blasts and Magnets, especially during these tough times.

Badges

Additionally, there will be two badges to earn for these specials. One based on the number of Rainbow Trail specials you capture, and one for the number of Colored Zeds you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn both badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows, so maybe that will give you a hint!

One more thing before we go! Leprechauns and Shamrocks really wanted to join in on the fun too! All activity on Shamrocks, POB Leprechauns, and Leprechaun variants will be worth double points during this entire special! To celebrate we’ve put Shamrock Credits on sale for $1 and added Leprechauns back into the store!

We hope you’ll see some rainbows during this stormy seclusion!

Munzee on!

Flat Day The 13th Pt 3 Specials

March seems like an innocent enough month, but sometimes when the stars align, it is capable of great evil. Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar taught us to “Beware the Ides of March,” but it’s got nothing on Flat Day The 13th Part 3! Starting at 13:00 MHQ on March 12th, Flat Day the 13th Part 3 specials will begin bouncing around the map until 13:00 MHQ on March 17th.

Flat Day The 13th Part 3: The Return! Details

If you want to get caught up on the storyline, here are our posts for Part 1 and Part 2. This year, 1,300 of these specials will bounce to all Flat Friends and Virtual Colors every 6 hours or when captured.

This lucky number will be worth 130 points for both the Capture and CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! The ominous virtual MOB 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 Flat Day The 13th Part 3 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:

Flat Matt claims he’s not superstitious, but opening an umbrella indoors will only cause trouble! Hopefully his luck turns around on FLAT DAY THE 13TH!

SPECIAL UPDATE: ALL Flats will be on the map for this time period! Also a special 13% off Flat Sale including Flat Matt available ONLY in the Flat Pack! Sale ends Monday!

We hope you’re ready to face these foul flat specials once again!

Munzee on!
