Munzee Events

August 2, 2019

Get Your Tickets for MedZEEval Times!

A spectacular birthday month has concluded (though birthday events will continue until August 11), which means it’s officially time to look forward to our next major Munzee extravaganza. MHQ Bash 6 is rapidly approaching, as we plan to trade in our #8zees attire for MedZEEval Times fun! Now we’re really going to be turning back time!

Though there are still a number of weeks before MHQ Bash 6, which will take place from September 27-29, the deadline for ordering your packages is rapidly approaching. Players will have until August 23 at 15:00 MHQ time to register online, so be sure to act fast for a weekend you won’t want to miss!

Players will have the opportunity to choose between two package options, as well as an additional add-on. Add “A Night With Knights” option to join the Freeze Tag Team at Medieval Times for a dinner and show with unique icon and badge options for all attendees! There will also be a special WallaBash celebration, with more details coming early next week!

Get ready for some QRazy awesome days (and knights)! Be sure to order your tickets before the deadline!

Munzee on!

Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash is Coming Up! (Plus New Tags!)

Will you be joining us in California for Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash on Saturday, July 20? The #8zees will be in full swing as Matt, Dylan, Craig, Mick, Mari, Tamara, and Emma join players in turning back time for Munzee’s 8th birthday celebration in sunny Tustin, CA! You will be able to earn some awesome new badges and icons, including the two pictured below:

You can RSVP to the event now to join members of the Freeze Tag Team on July 20 at 10:00 in Citrus Ranch Park for an unforgettable trip down memory lane. Not sure what to wear? As you recall, each event host has been awarding players with a special badge for best 8zees (80s) attire. And though staff members won’t be vying for this badge, they will be dressing up!

Members of staff will be taking a little “trip to the movies,” as some Freeze Tag teammates will be dressing up as some of their favorite 80s movie characters. Whether you’re more of a Ferris Bueller or an Indiana Jones, we know you want to join in on the 8zees fun! Remember that players in attendance will be able to earn exclusive Traveling Team badges when they meet team members!

New Tags

To get you in the 8zees mood, we will be selling a brand new Personal Tag in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting today at 15:00 MHQ time. Inspired by National Video Game Day this past Monday (and our recent Joystick Munzee artwork!), this retro Personal Tag will get you right in that 8zees spirit. This tag is also available for the sale price of $8.88 in celebration of our 8th birthday!

Let’s turn back time and make some new Munzee memories!

Munzee on!

Join Us in California for Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash!

UPDATE: We’ve added a new Virtual Garden to the CA event area! Read below for more info! 

Munzee is turning 8 this year, and Friday, June 14 will kick off a whole eight weeks of birthday events! As we’ve announced, the Official Birthday Bash will take place in Tustin, CA with the California team this year! You can RSVP now to join Craig, Mick, Mari, and Tamara, as well as Matt, Dylan, and Emma flying in from MHQ, for an unforgettable 8th birthday bash on July 20!

Official Birthday Bash

All team members attending Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash on July 20th will be equipped with new badges for your scanning pleasure!

Players in attendance can earn exclusive Traveling Team Badges when they meet FT team members at events! Players at GeoWoodstock earned Texas license plates, but attendees at the CA Birthday Event can earn these retro Cali license plates. That’s the power of love!

We’re also happy to announce some awesome Virtual Gardens that all players can deploy in to get in on the birthday celebration fun even if they can’t make it out to the Golden State! Feel free to deploy in the Keytar and Magic 8 Ball gardens while there are still available spaces! Follow the links to the spreadsheets to help us grow these groovy gardens and if you need some help check out our “How to deploy in a Virtual Garden” help guide article!

UPDATE: With players filling up the Keytar and Magic 8 Ball gardens at a rapid pace, we decided to add a third garden to the area for your deploying pleasure! You can now deploy in the Controller garden, but you better act quick before spots fill up!

There’s nothing like the joy of CapOn points to get you in the birthday spirit! While we have yet to release a pink event pin, these gardens are both deployed near the event location. Stay tuned for the pink pin, which will be deployed sometime in the next week.

We will also be releasing more information about the birthday bash in the near future! For now, you can get started on earning CapOn points or picking out your best 80s attire (maybe dusting off some old boxes) if you plan to attend the event in person!

Don’t forget even if you can’t make it to California for our get together, there may be a Munzee event near you! Check out the Munzee Event Calendar and RSVP today!

Munzee with Matt!

If you’re unable to make it out to California, but still want to celebrate Munzee, luckily there are plenty of events to fuel your summer! (Or winter!) There will also be a number of opportunities to hang out with Matt, who will be attending the following Munzee events in July. He’ll also have exclusive Traveling Team Badges for each of his trips, so be sure to say hi!

Munzee Birthday Events Prepare to Commence!

Munzee is turning 8 next month, which means there are 8 weeks of birthday events to be enjoyed starting Friday! The 8zee’s (80’s) themed events will run from June 14 all the way through August 11 in order to offer plenty of opportunity to celebrate Munzee with your best retro attire!

While custom artwork is no longer available for the early birthday events (players booked it up fast!), we have awesome generic artwork packages available! Generic artwork packages cost $50 for an icon and $50 for a badge. Badges can be customized to include the event name, place and date. These retro designs are a great addition for your event attendees to earn! If your event is late July or August custom artwork is still a possibility.

We encourage players to keep adding events to the calendar, as there are plenty more chances to host over the next 8 weeks! There are 4 available packages for hosts to choose from, along with a unique host badge for each package!

There will also be an Attendee Badge to earn, as well as plenty of extras to scoop up during the celebrations!

Magic 8 Attendee – attend one of the 8zees birthday bash celebrations to earn this badge!

With birthday events kicking off this weekend, we can’t wait to see how players celebrate the 8zee’s! Remember the event host will choose a winner at each event based on best 80s attire. In order to earn the special badge for winning this costume contest, the event host must send the player name and photo taken at the event of the winning look to Louise. Unfortunately we will not be able to award any Best Dressed badges without those two pieces of information, so be sure to get them in!

Best Dressed 8zees badge- start planning your 80s outfits now for the chance to win!

Although Best Dressed winners will be chosen by event hosts, we want to see ALL OF YOU in your retro 80s attire! So share images to social media of your coolest throwback threads and be sure to use #8zees and tag us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter!

Two more great bits of news for event hosts! In the next few days you will notice new tools available for you to control your events more through the calendar admin section. You will be able to slightly tweak the coordinates for your pink pin, set cohosts, AND control your go live time. All of this is to allow event hosts the ability to adjust final details as needed. You will also be able to archive your event when it is over.

Also we are preparing to move your event communications to a new email address. Louise will be moving over the next few days to work from events@munzee.com — Current hosts will hear from her with details on events and future hosts will begin their communications at the new address. Thanks for your patience while we move her systems!

Munzee on!

Remember that the Official Birthday Bash will be held with the California team this year in Tustin, CA! There’s still plenty of time to RSVP and join the California Team, Matt, Dylan, and Emma in the Golden State!

MedZEEval Times MHQ Bash 6 Packages Revealed!

Get ready to sharpen your swords, dust off your jousting lance, and summon your squire, because the theme for MHQ Bash 6 will be MedZEEval Times! The 6th Annual MHQ Bash will be held from Friday, September 27 through Sunday, September 29.

Packages

What exactly will MedZEEval Times entail? We promise, this will be a weekend of victory that you won’t soon forget! Today we are excited to reveal the package dates and options. This year we will be offering two package choices, as well as the opportunity for two additional add-ons. The package options are as follows:

Court Jester- FREE

  • Name Tag
  • Access to events

King’s Court- $50

  • Access to Events
  • Name Tag and Lanyard
  • Clan War Bag
  • T-Shirt*
  • 2 Blast Caps**
  • Magnet and Virtual Magnet**
  • A new In-Game item to be announced at a later date
  • Special Edition Collectible/Commemorative Item

A Night With Knights- $50

  • Medieval Times dinner and show add-on with unique icon/badge only for attendees

*When choosing Between MedZEEval Times packages… UPDATE: Shirt size is not selected at this time. Sorry for the confusion. We will send out a survey for shirt size when sales conclude.
** Blast Caps and Magnets for this package will be awarded when you check-in to MHQ Bash in September. 

You can shop the complete MedZEEval Times package options HERE!

Event Details

While we’re not ready to reveal all of the weekend details just yet, we would like to share what the Medieval Times dinner and show add-on will entail if you purchase A Night With Knights. Medieval Times provides the ultimate medieval immersion experience. This family-friendly dinner attraction draws inspiration from medieval tournaments and feasts. Guests enjoy a four-course meal (vegetarian options available) and are able to cheer for one of six competing knights as they engage in a tournament of jousting and fun.

The four-course meal will be included in the package, and it will consist of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roast chicken, buttered sweet corn, seasoned potatoes, dessert, coffee, and two non-alcoholic beverages. There will also be a full-service bar, gift shop, and Hall of Arts. And of course, in custom with medieval traditions, you will have to eat with your hands!

Families, please keep in mind that every person joining us this night will need to purchase the A Night With Knights add-on for each person who wishes to attend regardless of whether or not Munzee accounts are joined. Though Medieval Times tickets are more affordable for children if purchased directly from the website, we will not be able to guarantee that anyone will be able to sit with the group unless they order through our packages.

More information regarding complete event schedules will be released soon, but the format will be similar to previous years. There will be activities during registration Friday evening, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon (WallaBash), Saturday evening (public event separate from ANWK), and Sunday morning. There will also be a wide variety of specials and badges to earn at each event, not to mention all of the munzees to capture in the McKinney area! For more information about WallaBash, be sure to check out the WallaBee Blog in the coming days! 

We can’t wait to ride gallantly into the night atop a golden unicorn with you this fall! Okay, it might not be THAT awesome, but MedZEEval Times will still be pretty great!  Stay tuned for more information!

Munzee on!

***Please note that  food orders will only be included for the “A Night With Knights” package add-on, but there will be opportunities to eat during some of the events.***

***To guarantee availability of all items in packages, online registration will close on August 23, 2019 at 15:00 MHQ time. Packages will be available for purchase at the event, but we cannot guarantee all items will be available.***

***Please purchase only one package per person who will be attending. Everyone must have at least the free package. If you have a joint account, please purchase a package for each person (they do not have to be the same package).***

Turn Back Time With Munzee Birthday Events!

The theme for our EIGHTH birthday event packages is the 8zee’s (80’s) so we’re looking to have a rockin’ retro time this summer!

As a reminder we will be hosting our Official Birthday Bash with the California team this year!
Tustin, CA: July 20, 2019- RSVP!

Get your events on the calendar (https://calendar.munzee.com/submit) and choose from one of the following packages. There are 4 available, each with a unique host badge! 

  • The 8-Sided Dice Dungeon Master – Basic event and no proximity restrictions – $30
  • The 8-Bit Gamer – The Dungeon Master plus 20 virtuals – $50
  • The 8-Track Rocker – The Gamer plus badge and icon – $150
  • The Super8 Filmmaker – The Rocker plus Eventzee – $200

Magic 8 Ball Add-on – If you would like your guests to receive a free emerald garden pin, this can be added onto any Birthday package. – $25

In celebration of all the GR8 times we’ve had, we’re extending this year’s event packages to run a total of eight weeks as well. Birthday events can begin starting June 14th and running all the way to August 11th!

There is a badge to be won at each event for the most retro 80s themed clothing, too. So dust off your leg warmers and ra-ra skirts, crimp your hair, polish your pixie boots, and above all else shine bright in something neon! If none of that made sense, that’s ok! Dress how you did in 1985! The event host will choose the winner, and you’ll also be featured on the blog. How rad is that?!

As always, there will be an Attendee Badge and plenty of extras! Get your events on the calendar, package requests in, and artwork suggestions in ASAP, especially if you’re hoping for merchandise, too. As our artists’ schedule starts to fill up, we will move to generic art options to avoid missing out on special event badges.

We look forward to having a blast from the past with you! Munzee On!


P.S. In celebration of the 8zee’s birthday announcement, we’ve also put our 80’s Blast From The Past personal tags back on sale for the next 24 hours! Remember with each purchase you get a FREE Blast Capture as well, but you have to add that to your cart. All of these details are below. The 80s tags will be available until May 22 at 15:00 MHQ time. You can buy them HERE! 

Don’t forget to add your FREE Blast Capture to the cart with the Blast From The Past -80s personal tag purchase. In order to get the FREE Blast Cap, you’ll need to add both the Blast From The Past – 80s Personal Tag and a Blast Capture to your cart. No discount code is needed, but the discount will NOT be automatically added until both items are added to the cart. If you plan on buying more than one Blast From The Past tag and want more free Blast Caps, you will need add more to your cart for each tag purchase. Please note that this promo is only applicable to the Blast From The Past -80s Personal tag.

GeoWoodstock Event Details Are Here!

Do you know what week it is?! It’s GeoWoodstock week! That means there will be plenty of capping fun to be held in Fort Worth this weekend at GeoWoodstock XVII. The largest geocaching event in North America takes place this Saturday, but we’ve got Munzee events from Friday, May 24 to Sunday, May 26! Don’t forget, our Flat Friends will all be on the map to offer plenty of points for those who can’t make it out (worth double points on the 25th)!

Munzee Event Details:

GeoWoodstock may be all about geocaching, but Munzee is all about coexisting! So in between GeoWoodstock happenings, we have a few events Munzee and geocaching players alike can enjoy! Remember if you purchased a CoExist package, you can pick it up at Friday’s event, or Saturday morning if you can’t make it on Friday. Check out the fun events we have in store for Munzee during GeoWoodstock weekend!

As those who attended GeoWoodstock last year might (or might not!) remember, Rob promised everyone who scanned the event indicator pin a spot in an Emerald Garden for THIS year’s event in Fort Worth, TX! The Spur Emerald Garden has now gone live, but we still have some open spots! You can purchase a spot in this garden in the Freeze Tag Online Store for $10. You’re limited to one per player, but you can buy one every 24 hours if it hasn’t filled up! Take advantage of this now because GeoWoodstock attendees will be sure to cap it!

Imagine THIS, but with Emeralds!

Flat Friends Reminder!

That means you can cap all four types of Flats from May 24 at 00:01 MHQ time until May 27 at 23:59 MHQ time. Plus Flat Matt decreed that on May 25 from 00:01 to 23:59 MHQ time, ALL Flat Friends will be worth DOUBLE points on ALL flat activity to celebrate real Matt’s recent five year Munzee anniversary. That means that no matter where you are in the world, you can enjoy the GeoWoodstock weekend celebrations with extra points!

It’s Almost Time for Munzee Madness 8! Details, Sales and More!

It’s almost that time of the year again— Munzee Madness season! That’s right, Sunny California is gearing up for the longest running player run events of the year.

To celebrate the event, the entire California Freeze Tag office will be attending Munzee Madness 8! Freeze Tag will also be hosting their own event in conjunction with the Munzee Madness player sponsored events in order to provide double the fun! Even if you can’t make it out to California to attend the events in person, there are still ways to participate from home.

Munzee Madness Details 

Mark your calendars and cancel your plans, because MM8 will take place from Friday, March 8 to Saturday, March 9. You can find the full Munzee Madness schedule at the end of the post. There will be a variety of events for all attendees to participate in!

Are you interested in meeting a portion of the team behind everyone’s favorite global scavenger hunt? The entire Freeze Tag California office will be in attendance, including Craig Holland (Cholland86), Mick Donahoo (fixitman), Mari Rann (Kirikat), and Tamara Sahagun (Raan). There will also be a dinner hosted by Freeze Tag on Saturday night in order to allow players more opportunity to interact with the people behind the scenes after a full day of MM8 Road Rally!

There will be a number of special event badges for players to earn throughout the weekend, as well as an abundance of munzees and specials to capture. No sneak peaks this time! If you want to see the new badge designs, you’ll have to earn them in person…

Virtual Garden Fun for All and Sales!

Whether you can attend the event in person or you’ll be celebrating virtually by playing the game at home, there are a variety of ways you can participate in MM8 regardless of location. We are excited to share the designs of four gardens that will surround the event, so that all players worldwide can earn some CapOn points. Choose from the Craig ParkOde to 1849, Officer Down, or Ode to q22q17 to deploy in! You can access a listing of a number of Virtual Gardens in the area here.

Why limit yourself to deploying in one Garden? In celebration of MM8, we decided to release some special offers in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Previously, Virtual Trail Munzee Credits could only be purchased in packs of five that included five Virtual Munzees as well. Now, we are releasing individual Virtual Trail Munzee Credits that includes one Virtual Trail Credit and no Virtual Munzees!

Our Virtual collection will now include Temporary Virtuals, Virtual Trail Munzee Credits (multiple), and the Virtual Trail Munzee Credit (single). All three of these items will be 19 percent off through Monday, February 25 at 10:00 MHQ time. Deploying in one of these Virtual Gardens is a great way to support the events even if you can’t make it in person!

Have you never deployed in a Virtual Garden before? Don’t worry, we’ve made it easy for you! Check out this step-by-step tutorial to help build a Garden today. All you need to do is purchase some Virtuals, maybe a few Color Credits, and select a garden to start deploying in.

If you can make it out to Cali for the weekend, we’d love to see you! And if you can’t, make sure you join in on the fun virtually! Don’t forget you can host your own Munzee Events as well, and it sounds like April would be a good time to start.

Munzee on!
