Ready To Ride with Flat Lou?

UPDATE: Flat Lou is now for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Go HERE to get yours! 

Our Flat friends, Flat Rob and Flat Matt, have become a staple of the game and we’re excited to announce a certain flat female is joining their ranks- say hello to Flat Lou!

Three years ago Louise Gibson took over the management of our worldwide player run events. She streamlined the process, improved communication, and provided excellent customer service around the clock in her first few weeks. Over the course of her three years Louise has interacted with hundreds of different player hosts, managing over 1500 unique events.  After three years as an extraordinary Events Manager, she has more than earned her spot among her two-dimensional pals.

The first Flat Lou will be released as a permanent special at Tower Bridge in London, England on May 1st at 15:00 MHQ and they’ll go on sale at the same time in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Flat Lous work much like the other Flats, but there are some differences.

As a not-so-flat-footed cyclist, Flat Lous will be activated at various times including when Louise is racing, when she attends Munzee events, major event seasons and more. Please note that all scheduled times are based on MHQ time and are subject to change. To start things off with a bang though, Flat Lous will be active for the entire month of May.

Another thing that makes Flat Lou so special is that she helps give back too! In connection to Freeze Tag’s sponsorship of the American Diabetes Association, $0.25 of each Flat Lou sale will be donated to ADA to help diabetes research and awareness. Flat Lous will also be active during each Tour de Cure race weekend throughout the year as well.

Flat Lou virtual pieces will be for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store tomorrow for $4.25, and there will also be a limited amount of the Flat Trio design Personal Munzee tags too. Premium members can also expect a free Flat Lou tomorrow at 17:01 MHQ as well. You can sign up for a Premium Membership at HERE.

Here is the general breakdown of Flat Lous:

Points:

Deploy – 19 Points
Cap/CapOn – Split 78 points with a minimum of 10 points.

Proximity: 

Flat Lous’ proximity is not affected by other munzees except other Flats. Flat Lous 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 Lous.

Deploy Badges:

Capture Badges:

We’re also excited to announce that we’re launching a new emerald garden at Louise’s favorite training site- Richmond Park in London! The roads around the park even make a pin shape too! Check out the map HERE. You can purchase one of the emerald garden pins, Flat Lous, and personal tags in the Freeze Tag Online Store tomorrow, May 1st at 15:00 MHQ.

The ceLOUbration continues around the world with special player-run Louise Gibson Appreciation Society (LGAS) events throughout May. These events have been entirely set up by player hosts to show their appreciation for Louise’s event management efforts. Find the LGAS events on the Munzee Calendar page, and let them know if you’d like to join in the fun!

Thank you all for showing our Flat friends so much love! We know Flat Lou will make a great addition to the family. Munzee on!

Introducing the new Temporary Virtual!

We’re excited to announce a new product called the Temporary Virtual! This new virtual item would allow players to deploy in areas that would usually not be beneficial to place a more expensive game piece or to help other players hit goals.

Much like Flat Robs and Flat Matts. these new items will be on a new layer of the map, so you don’t have to worry about trying to deploy in areas that are already overrun with other munzees. This will be especially helpful for deploying at high profile events like Munzee Madness this weekend in Southern California!

These new items are currently for sale in the Munzee Online Store and available on Quick Deploy as of 10:00 MHQ!

Check out the stats below to learn more! **Particularly take note of how long you have to deploy these before they are auto-archived.

  • There is a timer to show expiration online and in-app (like Myths/Nomads/etc)
  • Myths, Nomads or any virtual specials will NOT land on these

We love that our worldwide community works together to help one another reach their goals, whether that’s Clan Wars, ZeeOps, Events or something else entirely. We think the new Temporary Virtual will be a great tool for helping us all grow the game- even if it’s temporarily!

Thank you all for everything you do. Munzee on!

International “Thank You” Day Specials!

Rob realized writing individual “Thank You” notes to everyone wasn’t exactly feasible, so we decided to go in a different direction. In celebration of International Thank You Day, we’re proud to announce we’re celebrating in the best way possible: By sending out “Thank You” cards! Over the next few days you’ll be able to capture “Thank You” note specials from Louise, Rob and Matt.

“Thank You” cards from Louise, Matt and Rob!

The International Thank You Day specials will go live on the map at 00:01 Thursday January 11th and last through 23:59 on Sunday January 14th. There will be 1,000 of each of the icons (3,000 in total) bouncing on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. When you cap any of these icons, you will earn 18 points, and the owner of the host munzee will earn 11 points.

We know what you’re thinking: What good is a “Thank You” card if you can’t read what’s inside? Well when you capture one of the icons you’ll also earn the badge for that “Thank you” note and get to see what the cards says. Will you be able to capture all three?

Per usual these will also count toward the Special Hunter badge line, so be sure to cap as many as you can! You can capture these specials on your own munzees and they will all be attracted to Magnets.

Thank you once again to our awesome community of players! We couldn’t do all of this without you and we’re so thankful to have you as a part of our game. Now get out and Munzee on, because #TheTimeIsNow!

Tour de Cure: Race Week Update

Hey, everyone!

Tour de Cure is THIS WEEKEND! The team is ready to race, and we’re excited to be supporting such a good cause. The Team Munzee cycling kits have arrived, and Louise is already sporting one.

A limited quantity will be available in the Munzee Online Store soon.

As we mentioned before, we will be hosting a Munzee Event after the races, so you can come support the race team, roam around Southfork Ranch, or check our the vendors booths. This will be a MunzFit event too!

Speaking of vendor booths, Eventzee will have a Tour de Cure-wide scavenger hunt going on during the event with a booth in the vendor area to spread the word about both Munzee and Eventzee.

We know everyone can’t make it, but we appreciate any support you can give, whether that be joining our team, cheering us on, or helping us raise funds for the American Diabetes Association by donating to the team.

We’ll be sharing plenty of pictures on race day, and we can’t thank you enough for your support. Keep an eye out for more information about an upcoming way to give back, as well.

Munzee on!

MunzFit Coin Of The Month- $7.50- Buy HERE

Personal Munzees were introduced to incorporate a more social aspect to the game while allowing you to earn points. The new Premium Personal takes this a step further by allowing you to link other Personal Munzees for quick deployment.

WallaBee Coin- $10- Buy HERE

This brushed metal honeycomb coin features the WallaBee mascot and was another awesome item introduced at MHQ Bash. This coin may be a WallaBash keepsake, but it can also be logged and discovered in the Munzee app as well.

WallaBee Passports are just one way to interact with the game and community. Each passport comes with your very first sticker, straight from WHQ.

MHQ Bash Recap and Galleries

MHQ Bash has come and gone and needless to say we had a great time. We could spend many hours going into fine detail the times that were had, but we’ll try and keep it brief. That being said if we release a 4 hour long videocast in the near future, you’ll know why.

Take a quick look back on some of the weekend’s highlights. Follow the links to see photo galleries, share your favorites and remember to join us again next year!

Friday- Registration and Casino Night

We kicked off MHQ Bash 4 Registration on Friday night with casino games, some musical performances and a whole lot of fun! The Royal Flush Family was shuffling around and a certain jester kept the crowd entertained.

Major thanks goes to Cecie and the MHQ admin staff for making this one of the quickest and easiest registrations we’ve ever had! We had way more time for fun activities like our TazkMaster team building project.

Check out photos from the event HERE.

Check out the Eventzee gallery HERE.

 

Saturday Morning- Eventzee Activity Scavenger Hunt

Viva Las Vegas! We had a whole slew of casino-themed activities Saturday morning that left our players screaming “ALL IN!” Players had to locate each of the 10 activity stops, complete a specific challenge, and answer a quiz question after scanning the station’s QR code. The King himself even showed up!

Check out photos from the event HERE.

Check out the Eventzee gallery HERE.

 

Saturday Afternoon- WallaBash

WallaBee and Munzee players came together at The Hive (MHQ) for the first official gathering of the Bees and the Zees! WallaBee artist Andy Cameron signed players’ passports, Robbie and the BeeKeepers kept the party buzzing, and many prizes were won. We were surprised by how many people were in attendance, so expect next year’s WallaBash to be even bigger!

Check out photos from the event HERE.

 

Saturday Night- Oktoberfest

Our players helped us wind down the evening at the site of the very first MHQ Bash: Downtown McKinney’s Oktoberfest! We met at the former Munzee Marketplace (RIP) and explored all of the German festivities throughout. After a long day, taking a relaxing stroll through Downtown McKinney and capping the event trail was a perfect end.

Check out the Eventzee gallery HERE.

 

Sunday Morning- MunzFit 3K Race

MHQ Bash came to an end by kicking off our MunzFit 2.0 program! Everyone who could make it joined us in 3K race around Towne Lake in McKinney. Even though some could have used a bit better of a stretch before the race (looking at you Dylan) the weather was great and everyone had a good time.

Check out the Eventzee gallery HERE.

Thank you to the members of Team Munzee for making this a year to remember, to those worldwide who deployed in the area, and of course to everyone who joined us in McKinney! Stay tuned for news regarding MHQ Bash 5 soon! This year will be hard to beat, but hey we have a year to plan.

As always, Munzee on!

Flat Schedules and Events for October (UDPATED)

Hey, everyone!

As you may have noticed, Flat Robs and Flat Matts are still on the map. That was intentional. Our wonderful Events Manager, Louise, asked that they remain on the map for the duration of MunzFit 2.0 events, and we were happy to have Rob and Matt virtually attend all of them. If you need a refresher, that means Flat Robs and Flat Matts will be on the map until 23:59 MHQ time on October 15th.

That doesn’t mean Rob and Matt won’t be out and about, though. They will be attending events throughout the month, as well.

Rob

In the spirit of coexisting, Rob will be attending “Going Caching” in Rome, Georgia next week, and end his adventures at the “GA – Going Ca…er uh Munzeeing! Rome” event! You can meet him at the “Going Caching” events next Wednesday, October 4th through Sunday, October 8th. If you’re attending “Going Caching” or are just in the area, make sure to stop by and say hi. The theme is Spy Games so it fits well in his covert ops mindset and attire.

Matt

Matt, on the other hand, will be getting into the Halloween spirit in Missouri during the end of the month. On Saturday, October 21st, he’ll be in Kansas City for “A Spooktacular KC Halloween” and “Kansas City’s Ghoulish Last Call“. The following weekend, he will be headed up to Springfield, Missouri for the “2nd Annual MunZters Mash” event on Saturday, October 28th.

Team Munzee

In the week between Rob and Matt’s travels, Team Munzee will be participating in the 2017 DFW Tour de Cure on Saturday, October 14th! We will be hosting an event after the race, and you can read all about our Tour de Cure efforts here. You still have time to join or donate to our team. Keep an eye out for more information as we get closer to race day!

Without further ado, here are the schedules for Flat Robs and Flat Matts:

Flat Robs

  • Through October 15th at 23:59 MHQ time
  • Friday, October 27th at 00:01 MHQ time through Sunday, October 29th at 23:59 MHQ time
  • Additional times in October are possible but not confirmed at this time

Flat Matts

Munzee on!
