Christmas Events!

It’s that time again! We have just completed the Halloween events so now it’s time to start thinking about Christmas events. This year we are focussing on the Days of Christmas and these special packages are available for events throughout the whole of December.

Please get your events on the calendar and let me know which package you’d like. Each one has a unique host badge:

  • Partridge in a Pear Tree – Basic event and no proximity restrictions – $30
  • Two Turtle Doves – Partridge plus 20 virtuals – $50
  • Three French Hens – Turtle Doves plus badge and icon – $150
  • Four Calling Birds –  French Hens plus Eventzee – $200

We have something very exciting instead of the Emerald giveaway. It’s $20 per event, as usual, but the details will be shared during November. It’s going to be a fun addition attendees will love!

There is a badge to be won at each event for the “Most Christmassy Attendee” too. So dust off your dodgy jumpers or full on Santa costumes! The host will let me know who the winner is and you will feature on the blog.

This is the Attendee Badge that everyone will get and Father Christmas will be paying you a visit too!

So get those events on the calendar, orders in and artwork requests in nice and early please. As Trish’s diary fills up we will have to move to generic artwork.

If you’ve never hosted a Munzee event before don’t worry, I will guide you through the whole process and I look forward to working with you. If you’ve hosted before I look forward to working with you again!
Munzee On!

Gallop away with Flat Hammock!

The Flat Friends are about to make a new pal! Flat Rob, Flat Matt, and Flat Lou will have to watch their gameplay, because the ban hammer is knocking- welcome the all new Flat Hammock!

This new game piece is based on the one-man wrecking crew Daniel Hammock, who has been running Munzee Support for 5 years. No one at MHQ can think of a time when they’ve actually called him Daniel, or Danny as his family calls him. He’s always affectionately been known as Hammock. Although he started off as a player, in Hammock’s own words, his “dream came true” when he was given “the opportunity of a lifetime” to work for Munzee. Even before officially joining MHQ, Hammock always took it upon himself to help out the Munzee community with any and all issues that would arise. He is best known within the community for swinging the ban hammer, punishing all those who break the code of conduct. To those who know him well he’s a fluffy unicorn of a guy who is very kind and giving. In his free time he enjoys taking his family out for crazy Youtube adventures for the Munzee Monthly Giveaway and giving away prizes each month for players to enjoy. He’s also an avid fan of unicorns, if the Flat Hammock design didn’t make that very apparent.

The first Flat Hammock has been released as a permanent special in Gettysburg, PA. Players will normally be able to purchase their own Flat Hammocks in the Freeze Tag Online Store for $4. In celebration of our new Flat Friend though all Flat Munzees will be discounted! Remember that Flat Friends are not always on sale, so stock up while you can!

The Flat Friends Sale will last until Friday at 15:00 MHQ:

  • Hammock: $3.75- originally $4
  • Rob: $3.75- originally $4
  • Louise: $4 (with $0.25 still going to charity)- originally $4.25
  • Matt: $4.75- originally $5

Players with a Premium Membership will also receive one free Flat Hammock as well.

Like the other Flat Friends, Flat Hammock has a unique release schedule. Hammock may love working for Munzee, but he keeps busy with a variety of other jobs as well. Like other Flats he will choose when Flat Hammocks are available on the map, which will be during his working hours, major event seasons and more. Please note that all scheduled times are based on MHQ time and are subject to change. Since we’re in the middle of Halloween events though, all Flat Friends are on the map until the end of the month and Flat Hammock will join in the fun too!

Here is the general breakdown of Flat Hammocks:

Points:

Deploy – 19 Points
Cap/CapOn – Split 80 points with a minimum of 10 points.

Proximity: 

Flat Hammocks’ proximity is not affected by other munzees except other Flats. Flat Hammocks must be 50ft from other players’ deploys and 150ft from your own deploys.

You’ll also be able to earn a variety of badges for capturing and deploying Flat Hammocks.

Deploy Badges:

Capture Badges:

Don’t forget about DOUBLE POINT FLAT FRIENDS WEEKEND! On Friday we challenged our players to attend events and capture event pins, and they successfully completed the challenge! There will be double points on all Flat Friends captures and deploys beginning October 26 at 00:01 until October 28 at 23:59. That’s MH-BOO Bash weekend too, so if you’re looking for somewhere to deploy why not check out McKinney, TX! The calendar is also full of events all month long!

Thank you all for your support of the Support Man himself. Our Flat Friends line of munzees would not be possible without the enthusiasm of our players. Of course a huge THANK YOU to Hammock for his dedication to this game. So beware the ban hammer, hug Hammock when you meet him and Munzee On!

Halloween Event Kickoff, Virtual Sale and Community Challenge!

Ghosts and ghouls, something wicked this way comes! Bewitching Lou is flying across the night sky because Halloween Munzee Events officially kick off today! This has been our biggest month ever for Munzee events, so we’re excited to see a big turnout this weekend.

With Halloween Events in overdrive, we want to give you all another opportunity to earn double points on all Flat Friends during MH-BOO Bash Weekend! There are 61 events this weekend alone, so here is your challenge:

The worldwide community will need to capture 500 event indicator pins and 5,000 event pins by 23:59 MHQ on 10/14. We understand that not everyone can make it to events, so we’ll also have a secondary goal for deploying virtual munzees of any type as well. If 2,500 virtuals of any type are deployed throughout the weekend, that can replace one of the other requirements.

Be sure to check the Munzee calendar to find an event near you. Deploy virts at events as well to better your chances, support other players, and gain ! We have a handful of virtual items on sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

  • Amethyst: $3 (originally $4)- BUY HERE
  • Emerald: $8 (originally $10)- BUY HERE
  • MVM: $3.75 (originally $4.50)- BUY HERE
  • Surprise: $3.75 (originally $4.50)- BUY HERE

Just a reminder that the point increase for Event Munzees is now effective as well!

  • Event pins are now worth 10 points each
  • Event Indicator Pins are now worth 100 points each
  • Event Badges are now worth 500 points
  • CoExist Munzees are now worth 200 points

We hope you all have a howling good time for the rest of the month and we can’t wait to see some of you at MH-BOO Bash! We might even have some fun tricks, or treats, up our sleeves for the worldwide community too…

Happy hauntings and Munzee on!

 

 

One final reminder for hosts from last month’s blog: All events moving forward will receive 50 event pins and proximity between event pins will be 100 feet. Effective date was October 12.

PSA: Events in October

Howdy Munzee community around the world!

October was already going to be a busy month for events with all of the Halloween events on the calendar! However over the past 4 days many of you have shown your commitment to reaching Level 5 in the Clan Wars in a new way, by hosting events. Due to the overwhelming number, over 130 as of the time of this blog post, I felt it was necessary to give all players a few expectations for events.

Event hosts are important to us at MHQ. You’ve always been a generally smaller audience interacting directly with Louise, our Worldwide Events Manager, and have come to understand our systems. With this new rush of hosts and events we would like to welcome you, and share a few words of wisdom and some expectations.

The first is easy, understand you are not the only host Louise is dealing with. Respect her time and your own by FULLY reading her event creation email because it includes ALL of the information you need to be a successful host.

Second, be prepared in advance. Louise is great and she works at all hours of the day and night, but she may not be able to handle your “emergency” in a timely fashion if you haven’t prepared yourself. Again, most questions she has are covered by the email she sends you with your account details, please read it fully. You can also seek the advice of others who have hosted in the past or work together with others to share the load.

Third, Location Location Location! Events need to be in their own location. You cannot have 2 events in the same place around the same time, otherwise it is considered one event. Have the 2nd event at a later time in another location.

Finally, YOU ARE AN EXTENSION OF MHQ* to any players who attend your events. You could be the first person to introduce someone to this great game! Please understand that event hosts are held to a higher set of rules:

  • Many events have proximity rules lifted so they can deploy physical munzees in crowded areas. This does not give you the right to break the rules and teach others to do the same.
  • All deployments should physically be in the location where the pin is on the map, just like the regular game.
  • No event should have multiple munzees to scan at a single location.
  • No event should be conducted with a sheet of paper with munzees on it to scan as you walk/ride/drive from one location to the next.

The rules of the game are in place for a reason. Event hosts are held to a higher standard and need to set an example for all players. This is an important point for us because you are representing the game of Munzee to a wider audience. YOU are growing the game. We appreciate that very much and ask that you do so respectfully.

Thank you for reading these rules and requests, violations are being dealt with in accordance with the player code of conduct.

Let’s all have a great time in October and maybe we’ll see you at some of the events!

Munzee On!

Rob, President of Freeze Tag Games

*you are figuratively an extension of MHQ. not literally. 😉

New Urban Camo Design and Comic Book Day Personal Tags!

We’ve got a couple new products available in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

First up, a new Urban Camo design fresh off last week’s release. These new Maintenance Record urban camo designs are perfect for hiding in plain sight. They even feature a spot the first handful players can leave a quick record of their capture at! Think of it like an old school log.

In fact these designs were so cool that Freeze Tag President Rob Vardeman decided to sign a few! Five of the stickers that are currently for sale will be signed and dated by Rob. These special orders will be randomly shipped out, but they will also include a few bonus stickers from Zee Pres himself! The bonus stickers will be taped to the back of the Maintenance Record sticker.

Each of these stickers are individually sold and cost $0.50. There are a limited number of quantity, but if demand is high enough we’ll order more soon!

You can purchase Urban Camos here: https://bit.ly/2xFzN1lhttps://bit.ly/2xFzN1l

We’re also celebrating Comic Book Day with a new Personal Tag featuring some throwback artwork! For those that may not remember, we spent our spectacular sixth birthday chasing down comic book specials throughout July 2017. These Comic Book Day personals feature that special’s artwork design along with the new Munzee logo!

You can purchase Personal Tags here: https://bit.ly/2M4AKVu 

Thank you all once again for your support! As always you can expect even more fun game pieces in the near future. Munzee on!

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!

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!
