Get Some Muscle Definition With October 2020’s Resolution!

As we approach Halloween, the pressure to come up with a cool costume increases. We asked earlier in the month what kind of costume you would have the most fun in, and while superheroes seemed to be the least popular (perhaps it’s easier for little kids to dress up as them?) we think they would make a great easy costume idea! Don’t feel like you have to limit yourself to the typical supe from blockbuster films — for example, you could show your Munzee spirit (and make things a lot easier for yourself) by dressing up as one of our Hometown Heroes! Whatever you choose, feeling fit and having the muscles to match will go a long way towards making you feel the part.

As we announced in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of being active. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to practicing a different exercise. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. This month’s badge may be tricky to get, but we believe in you!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. For October, instead of a specific exercise, we’re focusing on a muscle group that starts with “o” — obliques! As depicted in the badge art below, your obliques are the muscles at the side of your body, which slant to the left and to the right, respectively. They are also known as “side abs.”

What are some exercises I can try to strengthen these muscles?

For starters, you can attempt the side plank as depicted in the badge art above! If that’s easy for you, you can increase the difficulty by doing hip dips, as suggested by Shape Magazine:

Lower slowly down until hip barely touches the ground, then lift back up. Do 10-12 reps, holding last rep for 15-30 seconds before dropping. Repeat on opposite side.

You may also be surprised to learn that Shape Magazine also recommends “Elevated Mountain Climbers.” You may recall the non-elevated version was the focus of our May Resolution. While they don’t obviously work out the sides of your body, perhaps keeping yourself lifted even higher off the ground (as opposed to regular mountain climbers) is key in activating your obliques! The last exercise we recommend from Shape Magazine’s article is called “Plank Hip Twists:” starting in a regular plank position, imagine there is a beach ball underneath your hips. Twist your hips to the left around this imaginary beach ball, then do the same to the right. If you are able, shoot for the recommended 3-4 sets of 10 reps.

Before you attempt any exercise, it’s always a good idea to consult your doctor**. Good luck and Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead! 

** MUNZEE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY EXERCISE-RELATED INJURIES

Nothing Will Escape Your Notice with These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

Now that it’s officially Fall around MHQ, are you getting enough fresh air? While the temperatures are probably more comfortable, there are less days off to enjoy. We hope you get to spend some time outside in your backyard or a nearby park to get your dose of Vitamin D!

If you have the good fortune to live near a forest, take a deep breath and get some extra oxygen for the rest of us! It would also be great to spot some real-world Camp Critters in the wild, which these lemony lenses are made for! They were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Maybe a road trip to some secluded woods is in order — after you get your car battery replaced, that is!

Only nine pairs of Hunting Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to all colors of virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing the Hunting Glasses will add this natural Hunter’s Hindsight badge to your collection! It will also contribute progress towards the overall capture line of badges — the post is HERE if you missed it!

Similar to July’s Summer Shades, these Hunting Glasses have a distinct lens color that isn’t just for show. According to biggamelogic.com, yellow lenses “block haze and blue light since they are on the opposite end of the color spectrum,” increasing contrast and making it easier to spot other creatures in your surroundings. Definitely useful if you want to spot other humans as well, to ensure that you are socially distanced! If you read on, you’ll notice that the Summer Shades would also make great Hunting Glasses depending on your prey — it makes sense, since we learned that the polarized lenses are the eyewear of choice for fishermen!

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these trendy lenses!

Show us how you Munzee! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and mention us on Facebook (@Munzee) or Instagram (@munzeeapp). Good luck, and Munzee on!

Whether You Call It “Autumn” or “Fall,” We’ve Got Some New Munzees For Y’all!

We interrupt your regularly scheduled Bash from the Past programming to bring you this breaking news! As today marks the start of Autumn/Fall (or Spring depending on which end of the world you live), you’ll be seeing a new selection of Greeting Cards, and a new lineup of scatters from Earth Mystery Trees as well!

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

We are happy to announce 2 NEW Open Edition Greeting Cards are now available for purchase! You can pick up Greeting Cards from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. Remember, you receive multiple munzees from your single purchase! Read the details in the store, or see below.

If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, reconnect with others before the holidays start with a Fall Card!

Otherwise, for those in the Southern Hemisphere, celebrate the beauty of new life with a Spring Card!

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific season’s greeting will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

This brings the current lineup of Greeting Cards available for purchase to the following:

  • Open Edition (will always be available; ONE Purchase yields FOUR munzees)
    • Birthday
    • Get Well
    • Thank You
    • Congrats
    • Sorry
    • Sorry 1
    • Sorry 2
    • Sorry 3
    • Fall
    • Spring
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Stay Home

As a refresher, the point structure for Greeting Cards is as follows:

  • Open Edition
    • Deploy: 50
    • Capture: 40
    • CapOn: 25
  • Limited Edition
    • Deploy: 60
    • Capture: 50
    • CapOn: 30

Remember that these munzees will be archived 7 days after they are deployed, so make sure your intended recipient captures it before then!

For more information on the Greeting Cards, you can check out our Help Guide article.

NEW Earth Mystery Tree Scatters

In March we introduced new scatters for the Earth Mystery, changing from Boulders to Trees. Trees are extra-special since they also release their own scatters once they are capped. It’s scatterception! We promised to introduce more scatters from Trees, so here they are, to give you some alternatives to pumpkin spice!

Like the Peaches and Pears, Pecans and Acorns are both worth 25 points for Capture. To clarify — Peaches and Pears will remain as possible scatters for Trees, so you have a chance for any of the 4 types. This means that Apple and Cherry Blossom scatters are no longer available, but there’s a good chance you’ll see them again in the future!

We’ve also added two new badges: one based on Pecan captures and the other based on Acorn captures. We’re not going to reveal what these badges are, so you’ll need to snag some of these nutty scatters to see for yourself! You’ll still be able to earn badges for Peach and Pear captures as well, so be sure to grab as many as you can before the next round of scatters goes live.

Whether the leaves are changes into Fall or you’re defrosting into Spring, we hope the next season is a fruitful one for you!

Munzee On!

These 20/20 Vision Munzees Are a Reminder of Our Hope for a Kinder World

Happy International Day of Peace!

World peace may seem like a cliché thing to wish for — it is on the lips of practically every beauty pageant contestant and equally at home on the page of many a luminary’s interview. But in today’s world, a world in which we have not only a global pandemic to contend with, but violent conflicts, we can’t deny that the world would be a much better place if we had it. To that end, we wanted to highlight this important day with these statement shades, which were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. What are some simple steps we can take towards world peace?

Only nine Peace Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing the Peace Glasses will add this groovy Peaceful Peepers badge to your collection! Also, as of July we’ve released the details on the overall capture line — the post is HERE if you missed it!

Today we celebrate the International Day of Peace, which was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. This year’s theme is “Shaping Peace Together.” To survive this time of hardship, we should work together instead of letting fear divide us. In the UN’s words:

Celebrate the day by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the pandemic. Stand together with the UN against attempts to use the virus to promote discrimination or hatred. Join us so that we can shape peace together.

We know our player community is full of people who follow the above guidelines as written by the UN every day, not just on the International Day of Peace, but we hope the officiality of the day only strengthens your resolve!

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these bouncing bifocals!

Show us how you Munzee! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and mention us on Facebook (@Munzee) or Instagram (@munzeeapp). Good luck, and Munzee on!

Surprise! A NEW Game Piece for A NEW Kind of Bash!

We may have had to cancel our annual MHQ Bash in Texas this year, but we’re still celebrating the only way we know how: BIG! We wanted to create something special to celebrate a worldwide virtual gathering in a new way, so we’re excited to announce the release of the Universal Munzee!

Like a combination between Social and Personal Munzees, the Universal will allow you to interact with your fellow players like never before. You can find out more about the product below, but first a little background!

Personable Personals

We LOVE events, AND WE LOVE Personal Tags! The two seem to go hand in hand. Personals come in so many colorful designs to collect, and it gives players something to talk about: you can learn a lot about your fellow players by the tags they’ve collected. We even have a special badge line highlighting this phenomenon!

That aspect to the game is definitely something we miss this year, and while players have used their creativity to host events that allow their attendees to still have fun while keeping a safe distance from each other, Personal Tags, unfortunately, do require you to be in close proximity of wherever they’re deployed. Enter the Universal Munzee!

Universally United 

Featuring the logo for this year’s theme, “Bash from the Past!“, it has the best of both Social and Personal Munzee functionality as other players can capture it from anywhere in the world AND activity on it will earn you points. However, as this makes it incredibly valuable, we are limiting it to 1 per player. You can find this limited edition Universal HERE!

This Bash Universal is a limited release item only available through October 1 at 10:00 MHQ.

A Universal has the same point structure as a regular Personal:

  • Capture: mystery random points 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45
  • CapOn: sum of 50 between player capture and residual
    • Example: player capture = 30, owner residual = 20. Total = 50
  • Deploy: 100 points (only deploy it once with no proximity or expiration!)

For now, you can find your Universal in the My Social Munzees section of the app, or the corresponding page on the website. For more information, check out the Help Guide article.

To share your Universal Munzee QR code for others to capture, go to the Social Munzees list in your in-app profile and slide the entry to the left to reveal the [Show QR Code] button. You can take a screenshot of the code on your device, then send to others! Or you can always access and download the QR code from the website as well.

Bash From The Past!

We’ll have more information regarding this year’s celebration next week, but prepare for a trot down memory lane! MHQ Bash has become a staple over the last 6 years, so we thought what better way to celebrate 2020 than by looking back at years that were maybe a bit more stable!

The Universal is just the first announcement in regards to our Bash From The Past. Please indicate your intentions to participate in our global Bash on the Event Calendar. More information will be shared Monday about our plans for this annual celebration that we’re taking global this year!

Munzee on!

Just in time for Munzee Mania, a NEW Iconic Location Has Arrived!

If you’ll be attending Munzee Mania, we hope you take the opportunity to capture these freshly-deployed pins! Like our New Hampshire and New Mexico Iconic Locations, this new munzee will join the ranks of our Tourism Munzees! You can now locate the Minnesota Iconic Location Munzees by turning on your Tourism filter!

Minnesota Iconic Location

This new Iconic Location will join the map today at 10:00 MHQ time to offer more opportunity for exploration! All Iconic Location Munzees are deployed by an MHQ account based on a database of historical markers in order to encourage players to get out and about and navigate new terrains. The points for this virtual munzee will be as follows:

  • Capture Points: 18-58
  • Deploy Points: 0
  • CapOn Points: 0 (Because it’s an MHQ account)

Like the other Iconic and Historical Location Munzees, the Minnesota Iconic Locations will not be blastable. Additionally, captures will count towards the overall Tourism line of badges. Tourism badges are linked primarily to the Historic and Iconic Munzees from different countries around the world, as well as states in the U.S.

These latest Iconic Locations couldn’t have been made possible without the help of players! Thanks to the players loeschfamily and Ubbs for helping us gather a database of historical markers in order to make this launch possible!

If you notice any Iconic Location or Historic Munzees deployed in the wrong place, please contact support with the name/URL of the munzee and correct information. Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for all the latest news!

Enjoy your exploration, and Munzee on!

Stay Sharp with Safiir!

Did you figure out the answer to yesterday’s teaser? The answer is Sapphires! The third generation of the Pokémon games includes a Sapphire version; the famous engagement ring Napoleon gifted to his wife Josephine features a pear-shaped sapphire; and in-counter barcode scanners, like those you commonly find at the grocery store, have panels made of sapphire to make them scratch-resistant. Like the past stones, this startlingly blue beauty was borrowed from our sister app WallaBee! Joining the other Funfinity Stones, please welcome the Safiir!

These Player Owned Bouncers (POB) resemble the Jewel Munzees, which they also bounce to! The Safiir is available NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Be sure to shop fast, because these Funfinity Stones will leave the store at 15:00 MHQ on Wednesday, September 16! Like the other Funfinity Stones, players can purchase a Safiir for $10. No upgrade ability is available. Topaas and Oniks will also be available during this time. You can shop the whole collection HERE!

Safiir Details

Safiir joins the current line of Pouch Creatures as a physical munzee that will bounce to all Virtual Colors, Air Mystery, Sapphire, and Skyland Munzees every 6 hours or when capped.

It will have the same point values as the other Funfinity Stones:

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 250 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 200 points

Safiir will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Safiir on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Safiir visits you. It will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on all 4 of its landing pads. You can access Safiir under the “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Pouch Creatures” filters.

New Badge!

Deploying an Safiir will earn you the following badge:

Additionally, any Safiir captures will help you progress in both the Unique Funfinity Stone Capture badge line and the Pouch Creature Capture badge line. As a reminder, you can see the first of each of these badge lines below:

If you want to brush up on any Pouch Creature knowledge, be sure to check out our Help Guide!

NEW Personal Tags!

Lastly, if you love these sparkly stones and think they would look great in your real-world hoard, you can shop our NEW line of Personal Tags HERE!

Munzee on!
