Virtual Garden Places Munzees!

We’ve got an all new Places Munzee and this one is special! Have you ever wanted an easy way to identify where Munzee Virtual Gardens are without having to load the entire design on the map? Well you’re in luck!

Starting RIGHT NOW you can purchase Virtual Garden Places Munzees in the Freeze Tag Online Store at https://store.freezetag.com/products/places-munzees!

Virtual Garden Places Munzees can be deployed as an indicator of a Munzee Virtual Garden. These gardens can be made up of any type of virtual Munzee (clan weapons, jewels, etc.). Please note that this type is not a part of the actual Garden, but instead a pin to indicate its general location. Munzee Virtual Gardens are player created works of art based on Virtual Munzee deploys. Examples of Virtual Gardens include Sunset Cowboy in Ft. Worth, TX, Rose Garden in UK, and Scared Kitty in Lithuania. You may also choose to deploy this type of Place near an official Munzee Emerald Garden.

There are so many unique Virtual Gardens throughout the world, so this new Places Munzee will work slightly different than others. Virtual Garden Places Munzees have a lowered 0.5 mile deploy proximity, so if there are other Gardens nearby you’ll still be able to deploy one. Only one Place is allowed per garden, and the garden must contain a minimum of 50 virtual type Munzees. When submitting your Virtual Garden Places Munzee for approval we ask that you include a link to the Garden’s location on the Munzee map and also any helpful information in the Munzee Notes section. You can do this by submitting and then visiting the Munzee page to update the name and notes while it is pending approval. Also if there is a spreadsheet associated with the garden link it in the description so others can help grow it.

Since Virtual Garden Places Munzees will need to be double checked on the Munzee map it may take a bit longer than usual to approve these. Please bear with our support staff and if they decline your submission please work with them to locate the area for confirmation. You will receive an email with approval or rejection with a reason. Please see all details about Places Munzees in our help manual.

Virtual Garden Places Munzees are available for $5, and you can purchase two per account every 30 days. Normal Places Munzees are $10 each and you are limited to one per type every 30 days. Since these new Munzees are more affordable, and they are allowed to be closer together, the points for Virtual Garden Places Munzees are a bit lower as well.

Points:
  • Deploy: 40
  • Capture: 10
  • Cap-On: 5

Like other Places Munzees, these will have 1,000 ft capture radius, can be captured daily, but cannot be captured via Blast Captures. You can also earn badges for capturing Places Munzees as well as capture streaks!

With all of these new Places Munzees available we have expanded the Places Munzee filters in the current version of the Munzee app. You’ll now be able to filter the map by individual Places Munzee types. So if you’re just looking for Virtual Gardens, you’ll be able to make that a bit easier. The current layout of the filters may seem a bit clunky, but a filter reorganization is a big feature for Munzee 4.0, so this will be a lot more organized when that version launches soon. Once again thank you for your patience as we roll out new Munzee types alongside our 4.0 development!

So get out there and explore the artistic glory of Virtual Garden Munzees!

Munzee on!

NFC Munzee Conversion

As the launch of Munzee 4.0 gets closer, we have an update regarding the removal of the Near Field Communication (NFC) Munzee type.  All undeployed NFC Munzees are currently being archived and all deployed NFC Munzees are being converted to white Virtual Munzees.

Please note that players have not had the ability to deploy NFC Munzees for many years, but this next step will remove the type entirely from the map. Although NFC Munzees were technically a physical type, the GPS coordinates attached to the NFCs will be where the newly converted Virtuals are located. Additionally, this also includes a substantial point update from what NFCs used to be worth. For those that have captured NFC Munzees in the past your capture count will remain in tact and you’ll still be able to see the special icon under the achievements tab.
UPDATE: This newly deployed virtual is available to be captured by anyone who previously capped the NFC. It is a brand new deploy.

Deploy Points:
5 —> 55

Capture/CapOn Points:
5 —> 70 points split with a minimum of 10
3 —>     *             *              *              *

We appreciate the player support for this type, but unfortunately NFC technology is not easily accessible for developers on all platforms so it’s time to move on. We promise the release of 4.0 is very close, so once again thank you for your patience during all of these changes. Remember this is just the start, we have some really big plans ahead!

Munzee on!

Introducing Variant Mythological Munzees!

The Myths you know and love are getting a makeover! We’re excited to announce all new Mythological Munzee Variants. Much like AlternaMyths these are twists on the original Myth types that allow them to bounce to other types of munzees. These variants are only available to Myths that have been “Upgraded” and you can only change the type once.

To start things off we’re launching two variants for both the Fairy and the Unicorn. We plan on releasing more Myth Variants in the coming months, so stay tuned to see some changes to your favorite Munzee critters. Remember if you purchased a Fairy it has already been “Upgraded” so you will not have to purchase an additional Myth Upgrade. Unicorns will require a Myth Upgrade to unlock the Variants though. You can purchase Myth Upgrades in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

You can convert your Myths via the website similar to how you would convert any other type of Munzee. Remember that you can only convert a Myth Variant once and after a Myth has been changed it cannot go back.

Points for Variant Myths will remain the same, they will continue counting toward their specific Myth badges just like normal. The only thing that changes is what it bounces to as well as a new capture icon in the Specials list.

You can read more details about the new Fairy and Unicorn types below:

Dryad Fairy
Become one with Mother Earth by converting to a Dryad Fairy! The Faie of the forest lands on the following:

  • Greenies
  • Earth Mystery Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees

Wildfire Fairy
Light up the sky by converting to a Wildfire Fairy! This fiery Faie lands on the following:

  • Greenies
  • Fire Mystery Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees

Battle Unicorn
Storm into the arena upon the noble Battle Unicorn! This armored equus lands on the following:

  • Greenies
  • Mace
  • Longsword
  • Battle Axe
  • The Hammer

Hippocamp Unicorn
Lands on:

  • Greenies
  • Water Mysteries
  • Ice Mysteries

In celebration of the new Myth Variants we have added a limited amount of Unicorn and Fairy Myths to the Freeze Tag Store! We have also put together a Variant Elemental Pack to help you bring some of these new myths near you.

Since the Fairies are also attracted to Air Mysteries we have reset the current monthly limit. The new limit, beginning today, is 10 every 10 days. Air Mysteries have also been discounted as well.

  • Unicorn Mythological Munzees- $20: Purchase HERE!
  • Myth Upgrade- $5: Purchase HERE!
  • Fairy Mythological Munzees- $25: Purchase HERE!
  • Variant Elemental Pack- $12 (originally $16): Purchase HERE!
  • Air mystery- $1.50 (originally $1.75): Purchase HERE!

Stay tuned for more information on upcoming Myth Variants and in the mean time we’re excited to see all those Variants hit the map! Remember that the amount of each that are deployed are entirely up to the player community, so chat with your fellow players to make sure even amounts are being converted!

Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Virtual Point Update and Conversion! New Virtual Colors!

In the next phase of point updates, we have some big news regarding Virtual Munzees. As you may have noticed there has been a change to the map! Moving forward all MVM, Mystery Virtuals, and regular Virtuals have all been converted into a single new “Virtual” type. With this conversion comes a point update as well!

All Virtual types will now be worth the following moving forward, not retroactive:

  • Deploy = 55 points
  • Capture = between 10 & 70 points
  • CapOn = split points with Capture  (Ex: if 30 for Cap, 40 for CapOn, etc.)

Our hope is that the conversion of Virtuals will make it easier for new players as they begin their Munzee adventure. Although the point increase from Mystery Virtuals and MVMs to the new type is not huge, the jump for the original virtual points is! All of the oldest virtual gardens in the world just received a MAJOR upgrade! Please note that alongside the Virtual conversion, the Virtual Quiz Munzee is no more. All Virtual Quizzes have been converted to the new type as well.

COLOR CREDITS

Alongside the Virtual Conversion we have also expanded the number of Virtual Color Credits! Now you can bring an entirely new level of detail into your Virtual Gardens with more than 60 colors of any shade you might need! Bring out those baby blues with Cornflower! Follow the yellow brick road with Goldenrod! Get a little cheesy with Macaroni and Cheese! If you can dream it, we can color it!

Remember, Virtual Color Credits can be purchased in the Freeze Tag Online Store for $0.50 and that credit can then be used in-app or online to choose from the wide variety of colors. Did you know there are several Facebook groups dedicated to building Virtual Gardens all over the world? Kjasdad even started a master spreadsheet to track all the Gardens!


We know change can be a bit scary, but we hope you can all embrace the conversion and understand the larger end goal of making this game we love more comprehensive to new players. Thank you all for your support throughout the 4.0 launch process. Good luck and go build those Gardens!

Munzee on!

 

****Please note: due to this point increase and conversion there has been a slight increase in the price of the new Virtual type. Previously MVMs were $4.50, but that price has now increased to $5.

New limits on Undeployed Lists

Five years ago one of the early things Rob changed when he became President of Munzee was to place a limit on the number of munzees a player could have in their undeployed list. The limit stopped players from adding an endless supply of munzees to be printed at home. At 00:01 on October 10, 2018 we will be taking an additional step in our attempt to keep the map full of munzees that are long lasting and high quality.

For premium members there is only one change: You will be limited to creating 250 total munzees via the “create munzee” tool per month. All other information remains the same. Your overall undeployed list will remain at 250 munzees total. If you have more than 250 munzees in your undeployed list you will not be able to use the create munzee tool until you have deployed some. The exception to this rule is any prizes earned or purchases made via the online store.

If you’re not a Premium Member already you can do so HERE:
https://store.freezetag.com/products/munzee-premium-membership

For non-premium members: You will be limited to creating 100 total munzees via the “create munzee” tool per month. Your overall undeployed list will be reduced to 50 munzees total. If you have more than 50 munzees in your undeployed list you will not be able to use the “Create munzee” tool until you have deployed more. The exception to this rule is any prizes added or purchases made via the online store.

As it was intended by the Munzee Co-Founders seven years ago, Munzee will always remain a game that is “free to play.” Our generic stickers are one way for us to keep the game free to download, and free to play within a few confines. Generic stickers sold through our online store and our authorized resellers do not count as part of your undeployed totals. They are not assigned to a specific account until they are deployed. Over the nearly 6 years we’ve been creating our high quality vinyl stickers we’ve seen a massive drop in price and vow to continue passing along any savings we negotiate to our customers. We all win if deployed munzees are there when a player looks for them.

Stay tuned for more information about the ZeeQRew store and a way for our ZeeQRew members to receive special discounted generics. We’re almost ready to unveil it “in early October” as stated in a previous blog post.

Thanks for understanding, and for growing the map with nothing but the best!

Munzee On!

Announcing The Removal of Certain Munzee Types

As we move closer to the release of Munzee 4.0 some decisions have been made regarding certain features of the app and gameplay. In order to offer a more comprehensive gameplay experience we will be removing certain Munzee types leading up to the release of the new version. We understand that some of these types are liked in the Munzee community, but by removing them we can enhance the gameplay experience for both new and old users, as well as maintaining accountability on all munzee types.

Business Munzees:
Alongside the launch of version 4.0 all Business Munzees will be archived. The development process is still ongoing for the new version, so no firm date has been set. The Business Munzee program was halted years ago and with no more growth it makes more sense to move on and remove this type from active gameplay. With only 208 deployed, and many of these munzees inside businesses, it is easier to just remove them from the map rather than convert them.

Business Munzee

NFC Munzees:
Although we removed the ability for players to deploy NFC munzees years ago, we will be removing them all together with the launch of 4.0. Unfortunately the technology for Near-Field Communication (NFC) is not easily accessible for developers on all platforms, so we will be moving on from the type. All NFC munzees will be converted to a different type around the launch of the new app, but more details regarding this specific change will be available soon.

Accessible & Quiz Munzees:
Beginning Friday September 28 at 00:01 MHQ players will not be able to deploy any new Accessible, Quiz Munzees or Virtual Quiz Munzees. Although these types offer unique gameplay experiences, many have been misused from their original concept and it has proven too difficult to enforce regulations on them. When the new version of the app is launched all Accessible and Quiz Munzees will be converted to Greenies. Virtual Quiz Munzees will be converted to virtuals, but similar to the NFC conversion there will be more information regarding that change soon.

Although all of these types may be brought back in some form in the future, there are currently no plans to do so.

Greenie Point Increases:
There is a bright side to the conversion of Quiz and Accessible Munzees though. When 4.0 launches an increase in Greenie points will also occur. Currently Accessibility and Quiz Munzees have a CapOn value of three points, but when converted to new Greenies that value will increase to 11 points. Remember, these types will not be archived, simply converted so if you have deployed any of these they will still be available for capture.

New Points:
Deploy: 18 Points
Capture: 20 Points
CapOn: 11 Points

Thank you all for your understanding. For years we have experimented with many different munzee types and not all of those have been successful. As we continue to innovate the game we look forward to your open-mindedness regarding new and exciting types.

We’re just as excited for the launch of 4.0 as you all are, but remember this is just the stepping stone to all sorts of grand ideas! We can’t wait to share them with you. Munzee on!

RetireMyths and More!

As we told you last week with the announcement of the Fairy Myths, the time has come for some of the older Mythological Munzees to rest. Starting now any myth owned by Inactive/Retired players will be archived until the player becomes active again. Unfortunately nearly 200 Myths of all different types have fled the map. Honestly we thought it would be more though, so we’re excited that Myths continue to play such an active role in the game!

Don’t forget, although these Myths are gone they are not forgotten! The Myths owned by inactive accounts have been born again as RetireMyths! These creatures don’t come out to play often though, so you will only see them on the map from time to time. They are currently on the map and available to capture, but they will flee again without notice.

With the map a little less loaded with Myths now, we figured it was as good a time as any to offer new players the opportunity to purchase some Mythological Munzees! Very Limited amounts of some Mythological Munzees and Pouch Creatures have been placed in the Freeze Tag Online Store for sale.

See the Myth collection HERE: https://bit.ly/2xC3yjCIf you want to take your new Myth to the next level, try an upgrade! Myth Upgrades allow you to rename your Mythological Munzee as well as the ability to “nudge” them to a new location after three hours. Myth Upgrades are $5 and can be purchased as a credit and then applied to any Myth except the Mermaid or the Fairy, which already come with upgraded features.

We also have a special deal! If you purchase a Myth Upgrade and use the code BattleDancingUnicorns you’ll earn a FREE Blast Capture. You’ll need to make sure the Blast is in your cart as well to receive the discount. Just a heads up, we’re working on a cool new feature* for some Upgraded Myths. No official details yet, but it will be coming soon so take advantage of this deal today! The code will be valid until 23:59 MHQ on Sunday.

You can buy Myth Upgrades HERE: https://bit.ly/2QbtYQ5

 

We also have a new Myth Pack on sale, which include a variety of different munzees that Myths, AlternaMyths, RetireMyths and Pouch Creatures land on. The Myth Pack is $16 ($24 value) in the online store and includes:

  • 2 Shamrock Munzees
  • 2 Regular Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Fire Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Earth Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Water Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Ice Mystery Munzees

You can buy Myth Packs HERE: https://store.freezetag.com/products/myth-pack

As always we appreciate all of you! Munzee On!

 

*Rob had a dream about Battle Dancing Unicorns, so take from that what you will.
