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.

Seasonal Munzee Point Update & International Peace Day Personals!

We’re excited to announce a point increase on Seasonal Munzees, which will go into effect at 00:01 MHQ on September 22!

The new point structure is as follows:

Seasonal Munzee Points:

  • Deploy- 50 points
  • Capture- 40 points
  • CapOn- 20 points

For a refresher Seasonal Munzees are similar to the Evolution Munzees in that they change after a period of time. Seasonal Munzees will change to the corresponding season on set dates:

  • October 1st – Fall (Northern Hemisphere)/Spring (Southern Hemisphere)
  • January 1st – Winter (Northern Hemisphere)/Summer (Southern Hemisphere)
  • April 1st – Spring (Northern Hemisphere)/Fall (Southern Hemisphere)
  • July 1st – Summer (Northern Hemisphere)/Winter (Southern Hemisphere)

This cycle will be continuous, but you can only capture each stage of the munzee once (i.e. if you capture the Fall stage, you cannot capture the Fall stage a year later).

Previously Seasonal Munzees have only been available in MunzPaks, which means there haven’t been a large quantity of these deployed around the world. We want to change that! We have some cool future plans for Seasonal Munzees, but we need more of them deployed before we can reveal those ideas. Think you can help us grow the Seasonal map?

For the first time ever we’ve now added Seasonal Packs for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store. For a limited time you’ll get 10 pre-coded Seasonal Munzee stickers for the discounted price of $10.

You can get Seasonal Munzees here:
https://store.freezetag.com/products/seasonal-munzees

In other news, today is International Peace Day and to celebrate we have a new Personal Munzee Tag for sale in the online store. In our location-based gaming world, what’s more peaceful than Coexisting?

You can get Peace Day personal tags here:
https://store.freezetag.com/products/personal-munzee

Be on the lookout for more point increases as we near the launch of Munzee 4.0. Thanks for your continued support and Munzee on!

Fairy Mythological Munzee and RetireMyth News!

ARGHHHH! Thanks to the seafaring skills of our worldwide players, the first Pirate Day community challenge was completed! As we promised, you all have unlocked the newest Mythological Munzee: The Fairy!

Fleeting Fairies:

Starting tomorrow September 20th at 10:00 MHQ time, a limited number of Fairy Mythological Munzees will be available in the Munzee Online Store for $25.00 each. Like the other Mythologicals, each player is limited to one (1) Fairy Munzee per account, and the sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership.

Much like the Mermaid, Fairies already have the Myth Upgrade built in. As the owner of a Fairy Munzee you’ll have the ability to “nudge” the creature to a new munzee up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day) but only after it has been on it’s host Munzee for 3 hours. The ability to nudge is only available for the owner via the webpage for the Fairy, not available in app.

You’ll also be able to rename your Fairy to whatever you want! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize these curious creatures. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct and family friendly environment! 🙂

These curious creatures are attracted to Greenies and regular Mystery Munzees, but they also fly to Air Mystery Munzees as well. The Fairy will bounce to these types every 12 hours or when capped.

Fairies are attracted to Magnets, which you can attach to greenies to increase your odds of finding myths and specials.

Details:

Name: The Fairy

Description: The Fairy Munzee bounces on Greenies, regular Mystery Munzees, and Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when capped. Each is numbered and owned by a Munzee player. Only 1 Fairy Munzee is allowed per account. You will also earn the Fairy badge for owning a Fairy Munzee.

Points:

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 100

There is not currently a traditional line of badges for capturing unique Fairy Munzees yet, but these will count toward the Myth Hunter badge line. Stay tuned for a line of badges similar to the other Myth Ranker badges soon. In the meantime, you never know what you might earn for capturing Fairies…

Soaring Sales:

In celebration of our new flying friend we’ve got some sales in store as well.

Check out the collection HERE: https://store.freezetag.com/collections/fairy 

  • We have all new Mystery Munzee stickers in stock for $7.50 for a block of five. Use the code FAIRYMYSTERIES to earn a free Air Mystery when you purchase a Mystery Munzee block. Please note that you will need to add the Air Mystery to your cart for the code to work and that this WILL count toward your allotted Air Mystery total for the month. The code will expire at 23:59 MHQ on 9/23.
  • We also have two new generic Urban Camo designs (Month/Year & Final Inspection) that come in blocks of three for $0.99.
  • As always there are also some high flying Fairy decal stickers to add to your collection for $0.75.

Be sure to load up on these so a Fairy can fly somewhere near you!

RMP*:

Alongside the release of the Fairy Munzee, we also have some news regarding some of our older Mythological Munzees.

Although we pride ourselves on our worldwide community of players, sometimes the weight of the game can be too much to handle. So as players become inactive for a variety of reasons, poor, innocent Mythological Munzees are abandoned to roam the world alone. It has fallen on us to give these Myths a new place to belong. Beginning Wednesday September 26th at 00:01 any myth owned by Inactive/Retired players will be archived until the player becomes active again.

 

……

 

……

 

Keep scrolling

……

 

There’s a twist though! The abandoned Myths have a strong will and at various points in time will come back to the world of the living as RetireMyths.

 

Take a deep breath

 

……

 

Keep scrolling

 

……

 

 

A new RetireMyth will be deployed on the account of Inactive/Retired players and at certain times they will haunt the map. These new creatures will award a new icon, but will not be worth any Deploy or CapOn points. When first released each will be worth 500 capture points, but that number will decrease by one point for each new capture.

RetireMyths will not be attracted to Munzee Magnets, but they will land on the same types as its regular Myth counterpart. There will be a new badge line for capturing RetireMyths coming soon as well as more information regarding when they will be live on the map.

With all manners of Myths coming and going at any given moment, be sure to keep your eyes peeled! Good luck and Munzee on!

Announcing Retired Account Physical Munzee Archival

In our continued effort to expand opportunities to new players, and keep the map full of Munzees that can be captured, we will be taking the next steps in inactive account archival. Starting at 00:01 September 17, 2018 we will begin archiving some physical munzees for all accounts with no activity in the past 545 days. These accounts will now be considered “Retired” unless there is some sort of activity between now and the 17th.

The physical munzees that will be archived are those created by individual players, not official MHQ stickers with generic codes, with no activity in the past 180 days. If you would like to keep munzees active in your area please cap them before this time. The purpose of this initiative is to open up spots for new players to deploy and also to uphold maintenance on game pieces that may be missing or have been weathered down. This ideally should help with bouncing specials, Myths and Nomads as well.

We will also make Recycles active Thursday September 13 at 10:00 MHQ through Saturday September 15 at 10:00 MHQ. This will better help you see old munzees in risk of being archived. We do not want to keep Recycles active the entire weekend though, so you can still get the munzees in Jewel form if you would like for September Clan Wars requirements.

Thank you all for your support! We look forward to new and current players alike being able to take advantage of this change. Munzee on!
