Talk Like A Pirate Day Specials And More!

ARGHHHHHH! Wednesday September 19th be “Talk Like A Pirate Day” and ye better be ready to walk the plank!

Come Sail Away:

We’re excited to announce that from 00:01 MHQ on September 17 until 23:59 MHQ September 23 Pirate Ship specials will be sailing across the map!

In case you didn’t know, the current version of the Munzee app has the ability to set your in-app language to Pirate. This fun feature unfortunately will be walking the plank in version 4.0 though so we wanted to send it off in style.

500 Cargo Ship specials will bounce on Greenies every 6 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.

500 Treasure Ship specials will bounce on RUMs, Premium, and Physical Jewel Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. These will NOT be attracted to magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.

500 Ghost Ship virtual specials will bounce on MVMs, Emerald, and Amethyst Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Munzee Magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.

Ye landlubbers want badges, aye?! Well the west wind seems to be blowing your way!

There are a variety of badges you can earn for capturing Talk Like A Pirate Day Specials and these will also count toward the Specials Badges. There are a total of six badges you can earn throughout the allotted Specials timeframe. We’ll show you the three for capping each of the different Special types, but you’ll have to discover the other three* yourselves!

Brilliant Booty:

If it’s treasure ye want, you don’t need a map to find it!

The Freeze Tag Online Store has a Pirate Pack for luring out stranded sailors as well as a new Pirate Personal Tag too. Per usual these are in limited quantity so get yours before they run out! Read the details on the Pirate Pak to find out how to get a free diamond credit when you use “WalkThePlank” as a discount code!

In order to help ye quest for these Pirate pins, we are also changing up how you can purchase Munzee Magnets. A Magnet reset will take place Monday at 10:00 MHQ and moving forward players will be able to purchase up to 10 Magnets every 10 days. This will count for both Physical and Virtual Magnets, and it doesn’t matter when the last time you bought Magnets is; the reset will wipe your record clean as of Monday.

All Hands On Deck:

In order to up the ante for our worldwide crew of Pirates, we’re also excited to introduce two community challenges!

First, if our worldwide community is able to capture a collective 1,500 Pirate Ship specials of all three kinds, collectively, in the first 48 hours of setting sail, we will release a new Mythological Munzee next week! To sweeten the pot, the first 1,500 Pirate Ship special captures will be entered into a drawing to win one of the new Myths for FREE.

Second, if the community can capture a total of 15,000 Pirate Ship specials before they leave the map, you’ll unlock double points on Flats for a weekend in October! We won’t spill the beans on when exactly that is just yet, but it’s sure to be a scary good time. For reference, just over 13,000 bacon specials were captured in our most recent special icon fun! Everyone will have to work together to earn this special reward!

The Pirate’s Code:

Avast me hearties, set the sails, prepare the compasses, and sharpen ye swords! In less than half a fortnight our hunt for treasure begins! Yo ho, Yo ho, it’s a Pirate’s life for Zee!

*If ye read all the way to the end of the blog, we’ll give ye a hint on a badge. It’s said the key to unlocking Jewel-Eyed-Johnny’s hidden treasure is in the eye of the zee-holder!

We’re also excited to announce that once Halloween events kick off we will increase the points on munzees you can only find at Events! Effective 00:01 October 12 Event Pins will be worth 10 points each and Event Indicator Pins will be worth 100 points each. Your Event Badge will be worth 500 points and a CoExist Munzee will be 200 points. These points will be effective moving forward for all events permanently after October 12.*

Wow, thank you all for keeping me on my toes in July – if I wasn’t cycling up mountains I was busy working on all your events!

California Historic Location Munzees!

Hot on the trail of the release of the Florida Historic Munzees, we’re proud to announce that we have expanded that line to the golden state of California! Just in time for our FTHQ Birthday event, we’re excited for our great community of California players as well as any travelers that make it to the West Coast.

The CA Historical Location Munzees are deployed by an MHQ account throughout the state based on a database of historical markers. When captured, players will earn between 18 and 50 points. These virtual munzees are not blastable, so you’ll have to get out and learn a bit more about the golden state! If you notice any that are deployed in the wrong location please contact support with the name/URL of the munzee and correct information.

The CA Historic Location Munzees will hit the map at 00:01 MHQ Friday 7/20. You’ll be able to earn a new set of five badges for capturing CA Historical Location Munzees.

We plan to continue to expand this line of munzees into more states and different countries as well in the coming months. We are actively planning a worldwide line right now!

Good luck on your historical hunting! Munzee on!

Double Points and 14% Off Sale!

I guess this is why you shouldn’t gamble, huh?

Well our Global Goblet predictions didn’t exactly pan out, so unfortunately we won’t be celebrating with double points on virtuals. Lucky for you all though, we love a good third place match as well! Since England is playing in the 3rd place match we’ve made three items worth double points TOMORROW!

From 00:01 through 23:59 on July 14th there will be double points for all activity on Crossbows, Temporary Virtuals, and Water Mysteries.

We also have a sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store that begins NOW (15:00 MHQ) and will last until 15:00 on the 14th. Head to the store now for a 14% discount on Temporary Virts and Blast Caps!

Let’s all give three cheers for England and hope they win 3rd place because we might have more surprises in store if they do!
