NEW Greeting Card Packs in the In-App Store!

With the release of the Motivational Message Cards last week, we thought it would be a great idea to show some love to the past card designs by making them more readily available in the app! If you’re looking to complete your collection, we’ve included some past Limited Edition cards, and some Open Edition cards that, while technically not “Limited Edition,” were still tough to get your hands on.

Please note that these packs are only available in the In-App Store, not in our online store.

We hope these packs will make deploying Greeting Cards much more convenient!

Opposite Day Has Got The Map All TopZee Turvee!

Notice anything strange when you launched the Munzee app today? To celebrate Opposite Day, the map will be sporting some upside-down pins for 24 hours! We also created a new TopZee Turvee badge, which you can see below! Earn it by capturing at least 26 munzees of any type between 12:00 MHQ today to 12:00 MHQ tomorrow.

We’d love to see you get into the spirit of Opposite Day — please take photos of yourselves trying to cap a munzee while upside-down*! Then, post them and mention us on Facebook (@munzeeinfo), Twitter (@Munzee)  or Instagram (@munzeeapp).

Munzee on!

New Greeting Cards to Encourage Each Other With!

We’re more than halfway through January already, so how are y’all doing with your resolutions? If you know someone who’s struggling, we have the perfect Greeting Card to help keep them on track!

We are happy to announce 4 NEW Greeting Cards are available for purchase! You can pick up Greeting Cards from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. You receive multiple munzees from your single purchase. Read the details in the store, or see below.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

We have 4 new Limited Edition cards for your deploying pleasure!

Cheer on your friends and family as they work towards their goals this year with Motivational Message Cards!

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific note will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

This brings the current lineup of Greeting Cards available for purchase to the following:

  • Open Edition (will always be available; ONE Purchase yields FOUR munzees)
    • Birthday
    • Get Well
    • Thank You
    • Congrats
    • Sorry
    • Sorry 1
    • Sorry 2
    • Sorry 3
    • Winter
    • Summer
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Stay Home
    • Tech Issues (not available for sale)
    • Motivational Message 1
    • Motivational Message 2
    • Motivational Message 3
    • Motivational Message 4

As a refresher, the point structure for Greeting Cards is as follows:

  • Open Edition
    • Deploy: 50
    • Capture: 40
    • CapOn: 25
  • Limited Edition
    • Deploy: 60
    • Capture: 50
    • CapOn: 30

Remember that these munzees will be archived 7 days after they are deployed, so make sure your intended recipient captures it before then!

Munzee on!

Groundhog Day Fun!

Want to get in on the Groundhog Day fun but didn’t snag a FR057Y? We’ve got a cute new Baby Animal up for adoption, and a special Eventzee you can join!

Hamilton Hamzee

Not a groundhog you say? He knows… but that won’t stop him from taking up meteorology as a hobby in his home of Hamilton, PA! If you’d like to make this clairvoyant Hamster yours, he is available at the Freeze Tag Online Store as an individual product! If you want more back story on Hamzee read the bottom of the store description. 🙂

This new temporary POB (tPOB) will be available for purchase for $5 from now until 12:00 MHQ on Wednesday Feb 3rd.

Hamzee is a temporary POB. He will bounce to physical munzees and will stay on the map until 12:00 MHQ on March 16, when he will be automatically archived on your account.

  • Deploy: 300 points
  • Capture: 200 points
  • CapOn: 100 points

This enthusiastic explorer spends most of his time in a cage, so he relishes being in the great outdoors! As you approach any munzees, make sure to watch your step — we don’t want any crushed paws! Hamzee prefers the following munzee types:

Hamzee will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Hamzee on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Hamzee visits you. He will be attracted to Physical Magnets. You can access Hamzee under the “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.

Badges

All players who purchase a Hamilton Hamzee will also receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Capturing Hamilton Hamzee will contribute progress towards his own badge line! You can sneak a peek at the first badge below:

Seasonal Seconds- Capture one Hamilton Hamzee Munzee.

We hope Hamzee has found a home in your heart!

Official Groundhog Day Scavenger Hunt

The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club is hosting an official scavenger hunt on Eventzee! It is open to the public with join code PHIL. If you’ve never attended the events in Pennsylvania before, this is a great way to get a taste of what they’re like!

Please note that the challenges were written by Punxsutawney Groundhog Club staff, so if you haven’t brushed up on Groundhog Club trivia, you may find the questions a bit challenging!

Munzee on!

The Final Tree Scatters Are Here!

Last March we introduced new scatters for the Earth Mystery, changing from Boulders to Trees. Trees are extra-special since they also release their own scatters once they are capped. It’s scatterception! We promised to introduce more scatters from Trees each season, so here are the final set!

NEW Earth Mystery Tree Scatters

Like the Pecans and Acorns, Dead Branches and Cardinal Feathers are both worth 25 points for Capture. To clarify — Pecans and Acorns will remain as possible scatters for Trees, so you have a chance for any of the 4 types. This means that Peach and Pear scatters are no longer available, but there’s a good chance you’ll see them again in the future!

We’ve also added three new badges: one based on Dead Branch captures, one based on Cardinal Feather captures, and a special badge based on a captures of both! We’re not going to reveal what these badges are, so you’ll need to snag some of these wintry scatters to see for yourself! You’ll still be able to earn badges for Pecan and Acorn captures as well, so be sure to grab as many as you can before the season changes and scatters are rotated out!

If you need more Earth Mystery credits to grow your area don’t forget they are available in the store!

We hope that you stay safe and cozy this season, whether you’re deep into winter or enjoying some sunny summer weather!

Munzee On!

NEW Secret ZeeOps!

Agents, back in August we emphasized our switch from Monthly to Daily ZeeOps, but we still wanted to have the opportunity to create separate Secret ZeeOps in the new ZeeOps Program at various times throughout the year. This is because the special ZeeOps we made for the 2018 Advent Calendar was so well-received, even by players who didn’t regularly participate in ZeeOps! We hope to bring back some of the magic by creating more themed Secret ZeeOps for you to undertake in the future!

Secret ZeeOp Details

Before you head to your ZeeOps Hub to check things out, please make sure you have the latest Over-the-Air (OTA) update! All you need to do is force-close/force-stop the app — the next time you launch Munzee, you should see a progress bar (depending on how fast your connection is, it may only appear for a short while) which means the latest version is being downloaded and installed!

To keep things simple for ALL players, we decided on making Zeds the currency of choice for these Ops. This is why we prioritized the release of the ZeeCred Exchange page, which allowed players who had accumulated ZeeCred from the old ZeeOps Program to get use out of that currency.

As these Secret ZeeOps will cost Zeds, they are guaranteed to have BIGGER rewards than the Daily Missions, which are free. To kick off this announcement, Operation: WatchE.R. is available now in the [Secret] tab of your ZeeOps Hub for a limited time! You can see a preview in the screenshots below:

Please note that as we plan to create new Secret ZeeOps throughout the year, Operation: WatchE.R. will only be available for a limited time. However, if you’ve already purchased Operation: WatchE.R., you will be able to complete it and collect rewards even after it is no longer available for purchase.

Unlike previous monthly ZeeOps that required you to schedule Operations and complete Missions within the span of a day, Secret ZeeOps can be completed as quickly or slowly as you would like. Just click on the Mission to view the requirements and accompanying story.  As you progress through the Missions you’ll learn more about the story and advance throughout the Operation. Do you think you can reveal the mystery of the missing Walkie Talkie Watch prototype?

If you complete ALL the missions Operation WatchE.R., you’ll receive the snazzy badge below, along with the Walkie Talkie Watch Munzee (more info below!) and various other rewards listed in the app!

We hope you look forward to trying out Secret ZeeOps as they are available!

Edit with added info:
If you’re looking for the bullet points about this specific NEW Operation: WatchE.R. here they are…
There are 3 levels, level 1 has 3 missions, level two has 5 missions and level 3 has 7 missions. Each level ends with more prizes.
We may share this information moving forward with other Operations but possibly not.

Walkie Talkie Watch Details

The Walkie Talkie Watch is an all new Zeecret Weapon that will put you in contact with up to two Agents out in the field! Like all the other Zeecret Weapons, it is available as a reward for completing ZeeOps Operations!

Points

  • Deploy: 25
  • Capture: 50
  • CapOn: 35

When you capture a Walkie Talkie Watch, it will scatter 1 Undercover Agent nearby. You must rendezvous with that agent by capping it! Once capped, it has a chance of sending you to a Liaison Agent or ending your mission with “The trail has gone cold.” If the Liaison Agent is capped, it has a chance of giving you a Mini ZeeOp, like Dossiers and Infrareds.

The Agents will only be visible to the player who capped the Walkie Talkie Watch and will be deployed on the Walkie Talkie Watch owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet.

The points for Agents are as follows:

  • Undercover Agent
    • Capture: 100 points
    • CapOn: 100 points
  • Liaison Agent
    • Capture: 200 points
    • CapOn: 100 points

You can access Walkie Talkie Watches, Undercover Agents, and Liaison Agents by turning on their filter in “Physicals – ZeeOps”. Capping these new munzees will also contribute progress towards the overall Zeecret Weapon captures badge line!

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.

This message will self destruct in 3… 2… 1…

Fancy Flat Friends are Going Ghost!

After 3 Flat Day the 13ths, haven’t you ever wondered what happened to the Flat Friends you weren’t able to save? That’s right — they become Phantom Flats. As Fancy Flat Lou was just released a few months ago, we hope it’ll be a while before we see her Phantom Flat counterpart — but you never know…

Phantom Flats

Like the RetireMyths and Zombie Pouch Creatures before them, these game pieces will join the map once any Fancy Flat owned by an Inactive or Retired account has been archived. These munzees will roam the map at certain times, and are worth 500 points upon first capture, with the point value decreasing by 1 point per each subsequent capture of the unique Phantom Flat.

NEW RetireMyth

Joining her sisters, the physical and virtual Nymph RetireMyth is now eligible to appear.

As a reminder, RetireMyths are not attracted to magnets, and they land on the same type of Munzee as their regular counterpart. RetireMyths will be worth 500 points upon first cap and 1 point less for each cap that follows.

NEW Zombie Pouch Creatures

Last but certainly not least, Elekter, Magnetus, Pimedus, and Puffle now have Zombie Pouch Creature variants!

As a reminder, Zombie Pouch Creatures are not attracted to magnets, and they land on the same type of Munzee as their regular counterpart. Zombie Pouch Creatures will be worth 500 points upon first cap and 1 point less for each cap that follows. Please note that Zombie Pouch Creatures will NOT level up into their other forms.

Are you ready to find some haunted munzees? Remember that these are rare finds only available at select times! You can use our handy What’s New? section to help keep track!

Munzee on!

Garden Gnomes for Home Sweet Home!

Did our announcement on Christmas Eve put a Garden Gnome on your wishlist? Well, the wait is over, and we’re excited to introduce them to you now!

Garden Gnome Details

The Garden Gnome is a temporary POB that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store for $12, and each month its price will decrease by $1. You can purchase 1 Garden Gnome every 28 days.

For the month of January ONLY, if you purchase a Garden Gnome, you will receive the Ice Hockey skin to upgrade your gnome for FREE. For the remaining months, you will need to earn skins by completing the previous month’s capture streak. You can change the skin on the gnome at any point (more info below!) as long as you have earned it.

Points

  • Garden Gnome
    • Deploy: 500
    • Capture: 250
    • CapOn: 150
  • Ice Hockey Garden Gnome
    • Capture: 250
    • CapOn: 300

You can find these kitschy cuties traveling to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, when a Garden Gnome has an upgraded skin, up to 3 NEW Gnome Hats may be scattered nearby when it is captured! For instance, when a Garden Gnome has an Ice Hockey skin it might scatter Gnome Hockey Helmets nearby.

The Gnome Hats will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Gnome owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These hat scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Gnome Hats are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

Garden Gnomes of ANY type will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Garden Gnomes on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Garden Gnome visits you. Garden Gnomes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Garden Gnomes by turning on your “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.

How to Change A Gnome’s Skin

You’ll be able to change a Garden Gnome’s skin in the app AND on the Munzee website!

In the app:

  1. Navigate to the Munzee Details of the Gnome you would like to change the skin of
  2. Tap on the […] button in the top-right corner
  3. Tap [Convert]
  4. Tap on your desired skin
  5. Confirm that you would like to use that skin in the following popup
  6. That’s it!

On the website:

  1. Click [Convert] on the Gnome you would like to change the skin of
  2. Tap on your desired skin
  3. Confirm that you would like to use that skin in the following popup
  4. That’s it!

NOTE: Changing your Gnome’s skin will remove the Gnome from the map and force it to bounce again, so if you don’t want to ‘nudge’ your Gnome, you should wait to convert it.
It’s also important to know that you ARE able to change your Gnome as many times as you like.

Badges

Garden Gnomes have 4 associated badge lines:

  • Unique type deploy badges — you’ll need to earn each month’s skin by keeping your streak up! NOTE: for January, we’re doing things a little differently since we aren’t using your December 2020 days of activity, but make sure to keep your streak up throughout January so you can unlock February’s skin!
  • Overall deploy badges — the more gnomes you deploy, the merrier!
  • Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned gnome!
  • Overall capture badges — capture as many gnomes as you can find!

You can see the first of each badge line below:

If you complete the capture streaks for each month (and make the initial purchase in January) you’ll have 12 different skins to choose from! So be sure to purchase one each month so you can have a complete bench of these athletic Garden Gnomes!

We hope these gnomes are the perfect finishing touch to your outdoor decor!

Munzee on!

Holiday Card Collectors Club Tier 3 Day 31: Fireworks Show

Tier 3 Holiday Card Collectors Club members have one last surprise! Much like the Snowball Gathering and Christmas Pickle Hunt, upon capturing your Holiday Mailbox, a shower of Fireworks will scatter nearby! To reiterate, the mailbox must be capped on December 31st 00:01-23:59 MHQ time to deploy the Fireworks. They’ll stay on the map for 6 hours after scattering, so try to cap them all within that timeframe!

A total of 20 Fireworks specials will be unleashed! These will only be visible to the Holiday Mailbox owner and will scatter like Feathers. This means there are no CapOn points but they are worth 50 points for capture!

The icon for these specials is the same as the Fireworks Card that Tier 2 and 3 HCCC Members will receive to deploy. To access these specials, please turn on your “Greeting Cards” filter.

Badge

There will be 1 badge for capturing Fireworks. Since there’s only the 1 badge in this line, we want to keep it a secret for now. Hopefully it shouldn’t be too tough for you to get!

We hope you enjoy unwrapping the last day of the Holiday Card Collectors Club! Would you like to see something like this again next year?

Otherwise, if you still haven’t joined the club yet and would like to do so now, click HERE! If you purchase a Tier 3 membership TODAY you can still get Fireworks specials long as you deploy and cap your Holiday Mailbox before 23:59 MHQ time on December 31st.

Lastly, if you want to check out what today’s Greeting Card looks like, or review past day’s goodies, you can check out the blog post HERE. Please note that that blog post may not immediately have the latest info as we cannot pre-schedule updates, but we’ll do so as soon as we can!

Munzee on!
