Best Dressed Fall into Spring Events Contest Details!

With the first Fall into Spring events kicking off this weekend*, we can’t wait to see how players celebrate the change in season! Similar to last year’s 8zees Best Dressed Contest, the event host will choose a winner at each event based on best themed attire. Event attendees will have 2 of 3 outfit options:

  • if it’s Spring where the event is being held, consider dressing in a Spring-themed outfit, e.g. florals, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, etc.
  • likewise, if it’ll be Fall where the event is being held, consider dressing in a Fall-themed outfit, e.g. leaves, golden and jewel tones, in-season fruits and vegetables
  • if you’re game for a more challenging option, consider dressing as one of the Mythological Munzees, such as those that appear on the Fall into Spring Event Package badges, or take inspiration from our staff members below!

L to R: Mari, hunniees, and Tamara at Registration Night for MH-Boo Bash! Mari is dressed as a Rainbow Unicorn while Tamara is dressed as a Pegasus.

It’s the event hosts’ responsibility to decide which attendee will win the Best Dressed badge. In order to earn the special badge for winning this costume contest, the event host must submit an entry to our Google Form, which we will provide to each host. Unfortunately we will not be able to award any Best Dressed badges without a form submission, so be sure to get them in! You can see the artwork for the badge below!

Featuring another ethereal goddess, Trish, who is responsible for a lot of our event artwork! She and Louise are a dynamic Event Goddess duo!

We’ll share some of our favorite player outfits to the official Munzee social media pages throughout March and April, but the badge will not be awarded until after the events have wrapped up. Then we’ll add all of the winners to a gallery on the Munzee Blog to announce when the badge has been awarded!

Don’t forget there’s still time to purchase Fall into Spring Event Packages, but Trish’s diary is filling up so if you want custom artwork you better act fast! Remember that we’ve extended the period for Fall into Spring Events up to and including the month of May! For those hosting events in the coming weeks please remember to use caution and follow local guidelines in regards to health concerns.

We’ve got an exciting season ahead of us, so stay tuned!

Munzee on!

*Event safety is up to the host of each event. Please follow community COVID-19 guidelines.

The COVID-19 situation may have all of us hunkered down at home, but why not practice social distancing in style? We’re excited to try something new here and have put together the Social DistanZEEing Global Munzee Event! 

You can join this Munzee event from anywhere in the world, but be sure to RSVP on the Munzee Calendar. Over the next couple weeks we’ll be sharing a variety of fun ways to interact, even if we can’t do it in person.

To kick off our Social DistanZEEing fun we’re starting with a FREE Eventzee Photo Scavenger Hunt!

What better way to kick off St. Patrick’s Day than with a Couch Potato Party hosted by the Eventzee team? You can check out all of the details on the Eventzee Blog, but here’s the basics. A total of 50 clues will be released over the next two weeks and you’ll have until March 31st at 10:00 MHQ to submit photos. You can earn a special badge by having one photo approved.

Just download the Eventzee app* and use the code “POTATOPARTY” to access this special hunt. The first 10 clues are all about the colors of the rainbow, and don’t be surprised if there are more colorful surprises later today!

Earn the Couch Potato Badge by having at least one photo approved!

Follow our blog and social channels to find out what’s next for our Social DistanZEEing event! We know being stuck at home can drive you crazy, but we hope to offer some fun options at home and in the real world depending on your situation. As always play your way and please use your best judgement when playing any of our games.

We look forward to fighting the cabin fever with you all!

Munzee on!

Munzee Event Safety Concerns

Like many around the world, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Although our real-world adventure game encourages players to explore the areas around them, the safety of our players is of paramount importance. 

At this moment we are not canceling any Munzee Events that hosts have put so much time and effort into planning. We instead will be extending the Fall Into Spring event time frame through May 31st, or later if necessary. So any themed event packages purchased can be rescheduled to a different time during this period. As always please reach out to Events Manager Louise Gibson by emailing her at events@munzee.com for all of your event needs.

We encourage hosts and players alike to use caution in the weeks to come regarding their own personal safety. We urge you all to stay safe and follow local guidelines in regards to large event gatherings. 

Regular gameplay can still be enjoyed around the world, but we do caution those in areas with higher risk of COVID-19 to use their best judgment when playing. Clan Wars will continue as planned, so we suggest players communicate with one another to help grow virtual gameplay for those worried about safety in their area. 

We thank you all for your support of our game. Our mission has always been to build community through active gameplay, but above all we must keep player safety as a top priority. We will continue to reassess the situation in the weeks to come. Stay safe and Munzee on.

Event Spotlight: Weston Super Munzees

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the Weston Super Munzees event, which took place on April 8, 2018 at The Old Colonial in Weston-Super-Mare, UK and was hosted by nuttynan, Lizeb, lankyspanky, and TheJenks7.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

I had just moved to Weston and wanted to grow the map as there were very few Munzees there. I concentrated on deploying Water, Prize Wheels and Flats clusters to encourage players to deploy and cap as well. The Flats deploys were particularly prolific as it was a double points weekend. These clusters enticed more and more players to attend. Plus I did a free prize draw for host places for all those who attended (I paid for the entire event myself). Although the Initial cost was quite a lot the subsequent deploys from players all over the world became the basis of the massive Munzee presence the Weston-Super-Mare now has.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

Build the map by doing clusters of certain types of physicals and virtuals so players can easily see what can be capped in big numbers. Also offering a prize draw for host places is always popular and brings more players to an event.

What made your event unique?

Seaside location with brand new deploys in huge clusters, so no one had capped them.

Would you like to highlight any future events you’re hosting?

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1578954942/

We are celebrating Weston’s links with helicopters history and chasing little helicopters around the streets beside the famous Helicopter Museum (NOT on the museum grounds or airfield).

There are huge numbers of Airs and Joysticks (with the resulting number of scatter types to chase after as well). We welcome any type of deploys in and around the event venue and the obvious “loops” which indicate where the event icons may be deployed. https://www.munzee.com/map/gcjuj4xqj/15.5

Thank you to nuttynan for being such a great host and submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!

Finding A Munzee Event Near You Has Never Been Easier!

Munzee Events have proven time and time again to be a great way to maintain the wonderful player community and to grow the game by introducing it to new players. As we’ve said before, one of our goals this year is to make Munzee Events easier for both hosts and attendees. We’ve taken steps toward that for hosts with our line of Event Spotlight blog posts, so now it’s time for us to do the same for attendees! 

We’re excited to announce that you’ll now be able to check out Munzee Events near you and more in our latest over-the-air (OTA) update!

Upcoming Events Screenshot

Munzee Events List Updates

One feature we’ve always wanted to improve in the app was the Events area. If you aren’t sure what we’re talking about, here’s a quick tutorial — tap on the Hamburger Menu and then tap on [Munzee Events].

We decided to take the best of both worlds! The current version of the app was designed to show much more helpful information than the Event Indicator pin’s munzee details. Now, the app displays the same information displayed on the Munzee Calendar, combined with the old way of showing the Event Indicator pin’s location. The list now shows the following:

  • Name of the event
  • Date of the event
  • Time of the event
  • A button to take you to the Munzee Calendar details

Additionally, events are now ordered in the list by date and time, which should be helpful for days with a series of events, such as the recent SunCoast and OzDayZee events, or the upcoming Munzee Madness 9 events! Distance-wise, events up to 500 miles away will appear in the list, in case you feel like taking a LONG drive!

Event Details Screenshot

Munzee Events Details Updates

We also updated what happens when you tap on an Event Indicator in the list to view its details. Along with the name, date, and time of the event, there is also:

  • A link out to the Munzee Calendar so you can easily mark whether you’re attending the event
    • NOTE: You’ll need to log into your Munzee account on the Calendar page for this to go through!
  • The address of the event location
  • Any extra details provided by the event host

As before, you can use the [Map] button to jump to the Event Indicator pin’s location on the map. This makes it easy to check if you’ve deployed any munzees nearby so you can rack up the points once the event takes place!

We hope this makes it much easier to find an event to look forward to, to pencil in some time for Munzee in your busy schedule, and to find more Munzee players nearby!

If you are a prospective Event Host, we hope this gives you a push in the right direction, as it should be much easier for people to find out about your event! Don’t forget that we are currently offering Spring Event packages if you want to match with our current theme!

Munzee On!

Meet The New Girl + Heartbreaker Prize Weekend + Virtual Capture Booster Release!

If you’re looking forward to a Munzee-filled Valentine’s Day Weekend, we have some extra surprises for you that’ll spice things up including an addition to the Heartbreaker Family!
Exciting Update: ALL Heartbreakers will also land on Treehouses through Monday morning!

Green Heartbreaker Munzee

The Yellow Heartbreaker Munzee didn’t like being the third wheel, so we’re excited to introduce the new girl in town, the Green Heartbreaker Munzee! If you’d like to make her yours, she is available at the Freeze Tag Online Store as an individual product! That’s right, you can now have up to four different Heartbreaker types bouncing around the map!

This new temp POB will be available for purchase for $5 from now until 10:00 MHQ on Tuesday Feb 18th. Each player can purchase up to two Green Heartbreakers each day they are available, which will come in handy for our Heartbreaker Prize Weekend… but more on that in a bit!

Like the other Heartbreakers, the Green Heartbreaker is a temporary POB. Similar to her main squeeze, the Yellow Heartbreaker, she will bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. She will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on March 31, when she will be automatically archived on your account. If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

  • Deploy: 214 points
  • Capture: 214 points
  • CapOn: 100 points

While she may be a wallflower, she can blossom into the belle of the ball if she’s treated right! This shy and sweet Heartbreaker Munzee tiptoes to the following:

  • Greenies
  • All colors of Virtuals
  • Temporary Virtuals
  • Premium Munzees
  • Diamond
  • Ruby
  • Aquamarine
  • Topaz
  • Pink Diamond
  • Emerald (V)
  • Amethyst (V)
  • Sapphire (V)

Like her fellow Heartbreakers, she will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Heartbreaker on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Heartbreaker visits you. However, Heartbreakers are non-blastable. They will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on all colors of Virtual Munzees. You can access Heartbreakers under the “Only Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

All players who purchase a Green Heartbreaker will also receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Now that all of the couples are together the real party can start! There is also a new capture badge anyone can earn that includes the Green Heartbreaker! The badge appears as follows:

Heartbreakers- Capture one of each type of Heartbreaker Munzee.

Virtual Capture Booster

What better way to boost your hearts this holiday season than with the release of the Virtual Capture Booster Credits! This booster was previously not available anywhere in our app or in our online store, as it is perhaps the most powerful of the four Boosters. We wanted to keep its use in check, but for a limited time Virtual Capture Boosters will be available as prizes from capturing Heartbreaker Munzees!

Weekend Bonuses!

To complement the release of this newest booster, we decided to let the other 3 come out to play as well! This weekend, when a Heartbreaker Temporary POB is captured, both capper and deployer have a chance to earn a Booster Credit or a Sapphire Munzee in addition to their usual points. This includes the all NEW Virtual Capture Booster!

This special bonus will last from 00:01 on Feb 14 until 23:59 on Feb 16. Capping a Heartbreaker doesn’t guarantee you’ll get a prize, so try to cap as many Heartbreakers as you can this weekend! Remember, alongside the Green Heartbreaker you can get a Yellow, Pink, and Red Heartbreaker in the three respective MunzPaks to increase your chances of getting a prize! They will all stay on the map until the end of March.

We hope you won’t get a heart attack chasing after these mischievous Munzees!

Munzee On!

Event Spotlight: Birmingham, Alabama – April Fool’s Lunch

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the Birmingham, Alabama – April Fool’s Lunch, which took place on April 5, 2019 at The Purple Onion in Birmingham, AL and was hosted by giber54, Mdeezy, Robelwilson, and timandweze.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

Every month in Birmingham we have a CoExist lunch (Munzee and Geocaching) on a Friday. These monthly events have helped us introduce many new players to Munzee and helped build a strong Munzee community in Alabama.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

  1. Always have your friends cohost with you- It just makes it more fun!
  2. Always publicize your events. Not everyone looks at the calendar regularly. Sharing about your events on Social Media is a great way to get the word out.
  3. Make sure your event location has seating and a table or two. It makes it easier for attendees to chitchat and scan each other’s personals.
  4. Consider creating a Virtual Garden at your event location. More Munzees to cap is a good thing! 😎

What made your event unique?

Usually at our Friday lunch events we have only locals. This event was attended by players from all over the country. This was also CoachV’s first time ever attending an event in Alabama. Also the Space Coast Geo-Store was there vending. There was also a free prize raffle for both the Munzee and Geocaching events.

Would you like to highlight any future events you’re hosting?

On Friday, April 17th- there will be 2 “Fall Into Spring” Events in Birmingham, Alabama.

A CoExist lunch and there will also be a special challenge event.

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1580525937/

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1580700208/

Thank you to giber54, Mdeezy, Robelwilson, and timandweze for being such great hosts! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!

A special thank you to Robelwilson for submitting the details for this event! Also of note is that Robelwilson is the first player to earn the 85 Times Host badge, which is part of an expanded badge line we’ve created to honor hosts with above and beyond event counts! 

You can see a little teaser for the 100 Times Host badge below- it’s quite the spectacle! It’s a race to see who will get this badge first, though we’re sure Robelwilson is one of the ones to beat! Don’t forget we have “Fall Into Spring” Event Packages available for sale so what better time than the future to start earning those hosting badges!

If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

However, Heartbreakers will be non-blastable. They will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on all colors of Virtual Munzees. You can access Heartbreakers under the “Only Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

All players who purchase a MunzPak (which will automatically deploy the respective Heartbreaker) will also receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Additionally, there will be three badges anyone can earn based on number of captures of Heartbreaker specials. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Love At First Sight- Capture 1 Heartbreaker Munzee of any type.

Remember these temporary POBs will only be available for capture until the end of March, so cap as many as you can and keep them bouncing!

Munzee on!
