New Generic Grab Bags for Sale!

Tomorrow marks the first day of spring at MHQ, which has us feeling particularly warm. We decided to celebrate by putting $5 Grab Bags featuring our new generic designs in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting today at 15:00 MHQ time!

You’ll get over $5 worth of generic munzees in each Grab Bag, including the existing mini urban and urban camo designs, as well as some brand new designs featuring a variety of different themes! Each Grab Bag will include a random selection, so you don’t know which design you’ll get. The Grab Bags will remain in the store until we sell out, so be sure to shop now to avoid missing out!

Help us celebrate the spring (or welcome the fall if you’re around the world) by picking up a bag today!

Melt the ice, and Munzee on!

What’s New at MHQ Live Stream Link!

Happy Friday, Munzers! If you’re not in the loop, we just concluded our second Facebook Live stream of the year. This monthly video cast is an opportunity for us to share what’s new at MHQ and in the world of Munzee, as well as address player questions.

Our second live stream touched on a number of topics, including our recent Banshee Munzee, 4.0 updates, our upcoming April fitness initiative, St. Patrick’s Day specials, and more. We also selected six players for prizes based on a random Facebook draw, as well as one player who submitted a helpful tip. Congratulations to valmie, zeroXC, yida, robelwilson, WiseOldWizard, and BigBill54 for winning some prizes from Rob!

Mark Your Calendars for Shamrock Point Updates!

The luck of the Irish is certainly with you this month, as we decided to announce the Shamrock Munzee point update early! That’s right, if you’re not too busy drinking green beverages, there will be some extra points to earn for this festive holiday.

Starting at 00:01 MHQ on March 17, all points for Shamrock Munzees will be increased. You can find the new point values below, but you can also pick up Shamrock stickers from resellers to prepare for St. Paddys! Please note that Shamrocks are currently exclusive to resellers, so the Freeze Tag Online Store does not have any available.

Points

  • Deploy: 100
  • Capture: 51
  • CapOn (Host): 51

And that’s not all! In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, from 00:01 to 23:59 MHQ time, all activity on Shamrocks will be worth double points! Yes, you’re reading this correct. You will be earning double points on the newly updated point values! Remember that Shamrocks are physical munzees, and they attract a variety of Bouncers as well, so be sure to stock up!

This point update is a real pot of gold! Stay tuned for more possible holiday fun as the month goes on.

Munzee on!

Munzee 4.0 Is Finally HERE! New Features and Updates Explained!

We know that you have all been patiently waiting for the new and improved 4.0 version of the Munzee app, and we are happy to announce that it has finally arrived! That’s right, the wait is over.

You can download the iOS version of the new app HERE!

You can download the Android version of the new app HERE!

This is an entirely new build, so you will not update your current version 3 of the Munzee app. Instead you will need to search for the new version in your phone’s app store. Please remember that the app may take some time to propagate, so if you don’t see it in the App or Google Play Store, just give it some time. We will be keeping version 3 of the app active temporarily, but we do plan to shut down that version in the near future, so just go ahead and download 4.0 today!

But before you jump into the newly updated game, complete with brand new features, allow us to break down some of our favorite things about 4.0!

The latest version of everyone’s favorite game is a foundation for us to build upon. We consider it a vision for the future, with additional tools being added regularly as we move forward. Due to limitations from version 3, we’ve had to delay some awesome features in the past, but this will limit us no more! We have some big ideas ahead, but for now let’s take a look at what 4.0 has to offer!

Main Feature Updates

  • New and improved map loading speed.
  • New square pins for Physical Munzees and round pins for Virtual Munzees.
  • Updated artwork to include all types in pin form to more precisely show the location of the munzee.
  • New interactive walkthrough tutorial hosted by our buddy the newly energized Rover.
  • Reorganization of filters into categories, making them easier to sort through.
  • Players can now combine multiple premium filters at a time.
  • Larger, cleaner font throughout the game.
  • Improved compass that more clearly indicates the Northern point.
  • Improved follow feature to keep player marker centered on the map.
  • New in-app announcements system that will deliver news directly to the players.

Additional Updates

  • The Munzee capture button at the bottom changes between square and round depending on the type selected on the map so you always know which type you’re looking for.
  • Pouch Creatures and Evolution Munzees now include stage numbers.
  • New “All Alternamyths” and “All Places” premium filters.
  • Filters are now applied immediately. Players do not need to save each time they choose filters.
  • Players can now see what filters they have set for each preset, making it easier to edit and make changes.
  • Magnet and Special timers now show down to the minutes/seconds.
  • Added a new “Inventory” section to the profile, making it more clear to new players what they have available to deploy.
  • Players can now quickly tap to capture from the List view using the new green arrow buttons, instead of sliding the entry in the list then tapping to cap.
  • Tapping on badge notifications in the activity feed now takes you to that specific badge in your collection. 
  • Added countdown timer to the leaderboards for when it will reset in MHQ time.

Share with Friends

We know that playing Munzee can be a bit overwhelming to new players, but many of our most diehard fans appreciate the complexity and pride that comes with mastering this multi-layered game. Luckily with our new in-app tutorial for new players, it’s easier than ever to introduce new players to Munzee. That’s why we’re asking our players to share 4.0 with their friends and family! 

As a limited time extension to our current Munzee Referral Program, we will host a referral contest starting next week! Help us share the new app and Grow the Game for a chance to earn a limited edition badge, prizes, and more! We’ll have more information next week, but this contest will not be retroactive, and it will only run from February 1 through 28.

While you’re waiting for those details, though, head over to the Freeze Tag Online Store and download a free Custom Referral Card. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to introduce new players to the game and get rewarded for it. The Custom Referral Card will contain your personal Referral code to share with new players. The more shares, the more rewards!

We will also be running several sales tomorrow in celebration of the 4.0 update release! There will be a separate blog post detailing those sales today at 12:00 MHQ, and all sales will begin at 12:15 MHQ.

We know this is long overdue, but we can’t explain enough how many possibilities this opens for the future. The whole team has worked so hard for this release, and we’re ready to keep the momentum moving forward! Thank you to the beta testers for their support (and constructive criticisms) throughout this process. This app would not be what it is today if it wasn’t for them.

Lastly we’d like to give a BIG thank you to all of our players for all of your patience. Thank you for the feedback! Thank you for helping us build the map! Thank you to the many who devote daily dedication to playing Munzee! We wouldn’t be here without you!

So go check out 4.0! Happy Hunting, and Munzee On!

Announcing the NEW Player Of The Month program!

After many months of hiatus we’re excited to announce a revamping of our Player Of The Week program! The new Player Of The Month program will work similarly to it’s weekly precursor, with a few notable differences. Player(s) Of The Month will be based on a different set of criteria each month. For example we’re kicking off January by highlighting some of our world-renowned Virtual Garden builders! Read the entire blog post to see how you can nominate others!

The all NEW Player Of The Month badge!

Say CONGRATS to brandikorte and mnbball as the first POTM winners!

AND It wouldn’t be right to award the builders of gardens this honor without acknowledging the people who built the first tools! Laczy76 and TheMachman These two will also receive the POTM badge for their work in the Munzee community.

These builders have done fantastic work developing Virtual Gardens with the help of the worldwide community. You may recognize brandikorte’s Sunset Cowboy Garden in Ft. Worth, TX. Those in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area may recognize the Burger or Pizza Gardens by mnbball. There might be some more news regarding these Virtual Gardens too, so stay tuned!

If you know a GREAT virtual garden builder please provide two things for us: 1) username 2) Map hyperlink to the garden  — email this information by January 28th to iloveyou@munzee.com so we can choose additional POTM for January.

During some months we may ask for nominations from our players based on that month’s criteria and we will choose recipients based on those details. Anyone who earned the Player Of The Week badge previously IS able to earn the Player Of The Month badge as well! In other months we may automatically award the POTM badge to players who meet certain requirements.

The Player Of The Month requirements for February are based on Super Streaks! If you have captured and/or deployed every day for more than a year you will be rewarded. These dedicated players don’t believe in a day off, but their hard work is helping grow the map!

Earn the Super Duper ULTRA Streak badge by capturing and deploying a munzee every day for a year!

The only requirement is that you have captured AND/OR deployed for at least 366 days straight at any point in your Munzee career. Even if you completed the Super Beast badge three months ago you will still be rewarded, if you didn’t stop at 365. Badges will be awarded February 28th.

Don’t forget, we have monthly Resolution Streak badges for capturing a munzee every day! These reset each month so you can still earn February if you missed a day in January! Maybe there will even be some new long term Streak badges for those who didn’t give up after a year??? Stay tuned for more!

We’re excited to kick off the new Player Of The Month program and challenge you all to play the game in many different ways! We plan to recognize the worldwide nature of the game this year.

As always thank you all for your dedication to the game! Munzee on!

Introducing Tourism Capture Badges!

We’re excited to announce a new line of badges for capturing munzees associated with the Tourism filter are now available to earn! These badges are primarily linked to the Historic and Iconic Munzees from different countries around the world and states in the US, but they will also include one-off lines like the Muncie, IN Garfield Virtual Munzees.

Munzees that will count towards these badges include:

There will be six badges in total (you can see the first three above) and this line is retroactive. Although these can be earned in specific areas we are continuing to expand our Tourism line in the near future. We’ve worked with players in the past to help locate databases of historic and iconic locations, so reach out if you’d like to help!

Thank you all for your support! We hope this gives you the drive to continue exploring new areas and learning about the local history. Good luck and Munzee on!

Follow the path with updated Trail Munzee points and more!

Four years ago we released Trail Munzees (after a string of bizarre videos) and now we’re excited to announce a big point and proximity* update for Trail Munzees, Virtual Trail Munzees and Event Trail Munzees! You can find the point breakdown for each type below, as well as some new Trail themed physical products as well. The point updates and new products are all NOW available!

Physical Trail Munzees will be worth many more points than when they were originally released! As you capture the various stops on the Trail Munzee the points you receive will increase as you progress.

  • Stops one and two are worth 50 points for Capture and owner CapOn.
  • Stops three and four are worth 100 points for Capture and owner CapOn.
  • Stop five is worth 300 points for Capture for completing the trail, and 300 points for owner CapOn for creating a good trail.

You will receive 50 points per deploy of a Trail Munzee, but your Trail will not become live until you deploy all five munzees to complete the trail.

We have also reduced the distance required between each stop of the Trail Munzee. Each of the munzees must be deployed within a 5 mile radius of the starting point. Each munzee must be deployed at least 500 ft (previously 1,000 ft) from other Trail Munzees.

Purchase Physical Trail Credits here:
https://store.freezetag.com/products/trail-munzee-credits

Virtual Trail Munzees’ point system has also been updated from when they were originally released! As you cap the Virtual Trail the points you receive will increase as you progress.

  • Stops one and two are worth 15 points for capture and 15 owner cap on.
  • Stop three is worth 30 points for capture and 15 for owner cap on.
  • Stop four is worth 60 points for capture and 15 for owner cap on.
  • Stop five is worth 75 points for capture for completing the virtual trail, and 30 points for owner cap on for creating a good virtual trail that players can complete.

If you choose to continue for stops 6-10 the points will be:

  • Stop six is worth 90 points for capture and 30 owner cap on.
  • Stop seven is worth 125 points for capture and 30 owner cap on.
  • Stop eight is worth 150 points for capture and 50 owner cap on.
  • Stop nine is worth 175 points for capture and 50 owner cap on.
  • Stop ten is worth 200 points for capture and 75 owner cap on.

You will receive 25 points per deploy of a virtual trail Munzee, but your Virtual Trail will not become live until you deploy at least five munzees.

We have also reduced the distance required between each stop of the Virtual Trail Munzee. Each of the munzees must be deployed within a 5 mile radius of the starting point. Each munzee must be deployed at least 500 ft (previously 1,000 ft) from other Virtual Trail Munzees.

Purchase Virtual Trail Credits here:
https://store.freezetag.com/collections/trail-munzees/products/virtual-trail-munzee-credits

Event Virtual Trails will work similarly to regular Virtual Trails. Since Event Trails are part of an event package there are no Deploy or CapOn points, but the Capture points have been updated to match the Virtual Trail Munzee.

The Event Virtual Trail can only be added as a part of Munzee Event packages. For a breakdown of how Event Virtual Trails work check out the updated blog post HERE.

*Please note that the ability to use the new proximity for the sandbox circles on the website map will go live tomorrow at some time. Thank you for your patience.

Announcing The End Of The Recycling Munzee

Despite years of “Going Green” and “Cleaning Up The Map” it’s time to announce the retirement of the Recycle program. Although this initiative to locating missing or uncapped Munzees had great intentions certain limitations have kept it from fulfilling its overall purpose.

To give all of our players a final chance to earn Recycle Badges we’ll celebrate one last round of trash pickup starting NOW until December 31, 2018 at 23:59 MHQ.

Remember that Recycles land on physical munzees that have not been capped in the last 365 days.

The munzees that are affected include:

  • All Physical Jewels
  • Clan Weapons
  • Greenies
  • Physical Mysteries
  • Premium Munzees

As we take Recycles to the curb, rest easy knowing we’re cooking up some great ideas on how to enhance our map maintenance. Here’s a hint… it definitely has something to do with ZeeQRew. No news yet and no promises on anything in the next 1,000 hours, but as always Munzee teaches patience!

Enjoy these last days of the year (and Recycles) and as always Munzee On!
