December 2022 Skin: Gifting Flamingo

As the month comes to a close, we wanted to make sure you were heading into December with your desired Flamingos! The skin for completing your November capture streak (and the corresponding badge), which is the Gobbling Garden Flamingo shown below, will be awarded in early December. But, we couldn’t wait to share what’s in store for next month!

November Flamingo Reminders

If you haven’t picked up a Flamingo yet, they are available in the Freeze Tag Store for $2.

How to have a permanent Flamingo on your account next year:

  • Own at least 8 Flamingos by the end of the year
    • Each month, the price of a Flamingo will decrease by $1.
    • However, players can only purchase 1 Flamingo every 28 days.

Where to stock up on Flamingos if you missed out on earlier months:

  • Reseller Garden Flamingos include the base Flamingo AND the special Reseller skin — if you’re interested, you can check out our blog post on them HERE!

December Flamingo Details

What Flamingo Skin can you look forward to earning in December? The generous Gifting Garden Flamingo! Like the other flamingos, the Gifting Garden Flamingo is a temporary POB that will remain on the map as long as players with permanent Garden Flamingos continue to use it.

Gifting Garden Flamingo
Points
  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 300
Additional Info
  • Available for multi-capture
  • Non-blastable
  • Attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets
  • Filters: “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials”

As stated earlier, to earn this skin, you’ll need to complete next month’s (December’s) capture streak. Once the skin is awarded in January, you can change the skin on the flamingo to this one at any point — refer to our Help Guide article for the instructions!

You can find these twinkling assistants constructing toys at the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, the Gifting Garden Flamingo will scatter up to 3 NEW Holly-day Feathers nearby when it is captured!

Holly-day Feather
Points
  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

Like the other Flamingo Feathers, these scatters will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Flamingo owner’s account. This means that unlike Air Mystery Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These flamingo scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

Badges

As a reminder, Garden Flamingos have 4 associated badge lines:

  • Unique type deploy badges — you’ll need to earn each month’s skin by keeping your streak up!
  • Overall deploy badges — the more flamingos you deploy, the merrier!
  • Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned flamingo!
  • Overall capture badges — capture as many flamingos as you can find!

While we revealed images for the first of each badge line in the original post, we are happy to show you the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Gifting Garden Flamingo:

We hope earning December’s Flamingo Skin won’t have you dashing through the snow!

Munzee on!

November 2022 GOTM Winners

This month we kicked things off with a new Zodiac Munzee line — the Celtic Zodiacs! We’ve always been fans of the intricate Celtic Knots as you may have noticed in our Shamrock badge line, so it was fun to delve a bit deeper with this new line of munzees. Other than that, Candy Crypt specials finished their run at the end of the week.

The next week, we made some much-requested reductions in proximity requirements to certain Places munzees. A few days later, we released our lyrical Jukebox specials, with the first 9 records to collect! As promised, we also had a ZEE-Dayz / Double Points Weekend on Greeting Cards to celebrate humbird7!

Just last week, we released more information on the Rob AstZee skin, asked for your ideas on new Jukebox Records to release in December, dropped the Merry Miser Mailbox, the 2nd set of Jukebox Records, Operation: Turkey Trample, and brought back Flat DHS Scatters.

We are now happy to announce the winners of the November Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded by early December, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

November GOTM

This month, we couldn’t resist letting the Jukebox specials guide us in our choices. Remember that all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award The Yellow Submarine garden, designed by Waves117, and the John – the Fab 4 / 1 TÜ garden, designed by geckofreund, as our winning November GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

The Yellow Submarine by Waves117 in Sheringham, Norfolk, England

The use of various Egyptian Zodiacs to create the periscope adds dimension and is a clever way to achieve a similar yellow color to the main body.

Here’s a note from the player who designed this garden:

With Sheringham being a seaside town and already having a few Seaside related munzee gardens, it seems only appropriate to continue the trend………….. and so the Yellow Submarine was created.

Since The Zeetles just put out their newest hit, Evo Submarine, we just HAD to choose this garden as one of the winners this month!

Kudos to Waves117 for creating such a timely garden! You may recall Waves117 also designed two other past GOTM winners, which were also seaside-themed as she wrote: Horatio the Hermit Crab, and Sandcastle in Sheringham Norfolk UK. Her gardens have definitely made Sheringham a coastal wonderland!

John – the Fab 4 / 1 TÜ by geckofreund in Tübingen, Germany

The garden is composed of Citrines and Onyxes, which definitely was a smart choice as the centerpiece for an October event — they awarded Pumpkoins! WE also love the Sir Prize Wheels sprinkled throughout as they also resemble the overall design.

Here’s a note from the player who nominated this garden:

John was the first of the Fab4 Gardens in Tübingen. Meanwhile, Ringo, Paul & George have also been published. In October 2022, the Beatles will be serenading us at the event.

This garden was nominated all the way back in March, and it definitely caught our eyes as it is stylish in its minimalism, and also manages to be a recognizable representation of John Lennon. We’re sure that the 🔆Wilder Süden Part 10 – Yesterday event which featured this garden was a smash hit! We also can’t wait to see the other 3 gardens once they’ve been completed — it’ll be like the Mount Rushmore of the Munzee Map!

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Based on your feedback, we’ve created a Google Form where you can submit GOTM nominations — here’s the link: https://forms.gle/SjUQeRxdi5FT81pCA

We’ll still check the iloveyou@munzee.com inbox for stragglers, but please try to send your submissions to this new Google Form instead. Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

Munzee on!

P.S. Are you looking for POTM requirements? Remember that last year, we announced that we were holding off on POTM for now as we develop a new way to highlight our unique player base!

Flat DHS Scatters Return for World TV Day!

We’re enjoying the retro vibes that the Jukebox specials have brought to the Munzee world, so naturally our minds turned to another retro-inspired gamepiece — the Flat DHS! Looking at the calendar, we noticed that another perfect day to feature it was coming up: World TV Day on Monday! So, we’re bringing back the Flat DHS scatters for a short time!

Limited Time Scatter Details

From the period of Saturday, November 19th at 00:01 MHQ through Monday, November 21st at 23:59 MHQ, when you capture a Flat DHS, up to 3 Tapes may be scattered nearby!

As before, the Tapes will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Flat DHS owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes, have a capture radius of 300 feet, and you’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well! These tape scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Tapes are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 25 points

For more information about Flat DHS, check out our Help Guide article!

Badges

We’ve created 1 new badge for this special period. In addition, if you missed out on the badges from last year’s event, you’ll be able to earn them as well. You can see what these badges look like below. Make sure you cap as many Tapes as you can to receive all 3 badges!

Please note that the badges from earlier in the year will not be available to earn again, as they were specific to National VCR Day.

DHS Discount!

Need more Flat DHS’s near you? We’ve got a “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” discount you can use at the Freeze Tag Store! You must add 3 Flat DHS’s to your cart to use it, and are limited to 2 uses per order (in other words — put 6 in the cart, pay for 4, 2 are free). There is NO CODE required — the discount should apply automatically! This discount will be valid for the same time period as the scatters mentioned above.

We hope these scatters provide some fun extra gameplay this weekend!

Munzee on!

Jam Out to NEW Jukebox Specials!

Has the holiday music started playing where you live? We’re still a few weeks out from National Jukebox Day, but we figured it wouldn’t hurt to start up what will be our longest-running specials since quite a while — they are live NOW until 23:59 MHQ time on January 8th!

Jukebox Specials

Look forward to seeing Munzee-fied versions of classic hits! These specials will be released in waves, but will end at a total of 1,500 Diner Jukeboxes and 1,500 Soda Fountain Jukeboxes.

They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

Diner Jukebox Soda Fountain Jukebox
Points Points
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
Landing Pads Landing Pads

These specials will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Jukebox on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Jukebox visits you. These munzees will not be blastable. They will be attracted to magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Jukebox specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

When a Jukebox is captured, it will scatter up to 1 Jukebox Record for regular players, and up to 3 Jukebox Records for Premium Members. At launch each Jukebox has the potential to scatter different records, and more records will appear as the months go on, so make sure to keep an eye out!

While we want to keep most of the records a surprise right now, here’s a sneak peek at one of them:

These scatters will be worth 50 points per capture and visible to any player! They expire after 30 minutes, have a capture radius of 300 feet, and you’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well!

Badges

Currently, there are 7 new badges to earn:

  • The 1st line has 3 badges which are based on the total number of captures of Jukeboxes and Jukebox Records. You can see the title and description of the first badge in this line below.
  • The 2nd line also has 3 badges, and they are based on the number of unique Jukebox Records captured. You can see the title and description of the first badge in this line below.
  • We’ll keep the 3rd line — aka the final badge — a secret for now! is a secret no longer!

Since, as mentioned above, more records will appear as the months go on, at launch it is only possible to earn the 1st badge in the 2nd line.

Make sure to keep capping Jukeboxes each week to see if any new records come out!

Munzee on!

November 2022 Skin: Gobbling Flamingo

As the month comes to a close, we wanted to make sure you were heading into November with your desired Flamingos! The skin for completing your October capture streak (and the corresponding badge), which is the Flaminghost shown below, will be awarded in early November. But, we couldn’t wait to share what’s in store for next month!

October Flamingo Reminders

If you haven’t picked up a Flamingo yet, they are available in the Freeze Tag Store for $3.

How to have a permanent Flamingo on your account next year:

  • Own at least 8 Flamingos by the end of the year
    • Each month, the price of a Flamingo will decrease by $1.
    • However, players can only purchase 1 Flamingo every 28 days.

Where to stock up on Flamingos if you missed out on earlier months:

  • Reseller Garden Flamingos include the base Flamingo AND the special Reseller skin — if you’re interested, you can check out our blog post on them HERE!

November Flamingo Details

What Flamingo Skin can you look forward to earning in November? The crafty Gobbling Garden Flamingo! Like the other flamingos, the Gobbling Garden Flamingo is a temporary POB that will remain on the map as long as players with permanent Garden Flamingos continue to use it.

Gobbling Garden Flamingo
Points
  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 300
Additional Info
  • Available for multi-capture
  • Non-blastable
  • Attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets

You can find these crayoned birds feasting at the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, the Gobbling Garden Flamingo will scatter up to 3 NEW Paper Feathers nearby when it is captured!

Paper Feather
Points
  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

This means that unlike Air Mystery Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These flamingo scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

Badges

As a reminder, Garden Flamingos have 4 associated badge lines:

  • Unique type deploy badges — you’ll need to earn each month’s skin by keeping your streak up!
  • Overall deploy badges — the more flamingos you deploy, the merrier!
  • Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned flamingo!
  • Overall capture badges — capture as many flamingos as you can find!

While we revealed images for the first of each badge line in the original post, we are happy to show you the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Gobbling Garden Flamingo:

We hope earning November’s Flamingo Skin doesn’t feel too much like a school project!

Munzee on!

November 2022 Clan Wars Requirements

Level 6 Remains   **REQUIREMENTS AND REWARDS UPDATED BELOW**

Last month we made some changes to make earlier levels easier for new players and smaller clans to achieve, while adding some more difficult challenges to higher levels for hardcore players to work towards! We will be continuing to make adjustments as we collect more data and feedback from you all! As such, we wanted to let you know that there will be a Level 6 released again this month, but the final requirements and rewards will not be revealed until November 1st. This will give us time to review the results of the previous battle and make any final updates before revealing them to you all. We appreciate your patience as we fine tune the difficulty here!

Exciting Update Coming Soon

We’re prepping a game changing update that should positively impact gameplay moving forward! Right now if you capture a bouncer sitting on a Munzee you haven’t captured before, it would only show that you captured that bouncer, even though it marks both the bouncer and landing pad as captured. This means you lose the opportunity to capture the landing pad as its own type. For example, if a Unicorn lands on a Shamrock you haven’t captured before, you only see a notification and get points for the Unicorn capture and the Shamrock disappears from the map. We’re going to fix that 🙂

Once this update is pushed live, if a Unicorn lands on a Shamrock you haven’t captured before, you can capture that Unicorn first! Then the Shamrock will remain on the map for you to capture separately. This should also be retroactive, so if there were any bouncers you had captured in the past that were sitting on types you hadn’t captured yet, they should reappear on the map for you to capture as its own type! This will also be applied to QRewzees and SleepZees, as well as scatters such as Charges from Electric Mysteries!

This update will be pushed live sometime on November 1st, which will allow us to monitor and make any updates before Clan Wars starts on November 3rd. If you’re lucky, you may notice some new types popping up near you to capture around then!

 


As usual, you’ll find the latest details to our clan requirements and rewards in the clan section of our app. There have been a few issues with activity not counting for some players in the opening minutes of the clan war. Please be sure to give our servers a bit of time to switch from Clan Wars OFF to Clan Wars ON. 🙂 This will ease frustration, just 10 or 15 minutes will make all the difference. We’re happy everyone is so anxious to get started on the 3rd of each month! In addition: Please do not change your clan membership for at least 2 hours after the month ends. The calculations are still being made and it could ruin your efforts.

It is possible that we could update clan requirements prior to November 3 and reserve the right to do so. The final requirements and rewards will always be shown in the app. All of this is up in the air based on how situations continue to change worldwide based on COVID-19.

November ClanPak

NOTE – Along with the update to allow for players to capture the bouncer and landing pad separately, you may notice a change to how credits are tallied for the Total Captures requirement. We discovered that it was incorrectly giving credit for 2 Total Captures each time 1 Bouncer was captured. Starting in November, capturing 1 Bouncer will only count for 1 Total Capture. If the landing pad hasn’t been captured before, then it can be captured separately afterwards, adding 1 Total Capture to the overall tally.

November Badges

Your Clan can earn monthly badges to earn for reaching distinct levels of Clan Wars each month. You won’t be able to earn a badge until the entire clan has reached the specified level. There will be a total of 6 badges available in November. The first badge will appear as follows:

Overall Clan Notes:

Please keep in mind Levels 4 & 5 are considered advanced gameplay and not recommended for brand new players. Level 6 especially is reserved for the elite hardcore players, not for the faint of heart! Be aware when allowing new players to join your clans. QRew/ZeeQRew status will be required for any clans earning levels 3, 4 & 5. See qualifications for ZeeQRew here. If you are not a member on November 1st you will not be able to qualify until November 15th. If you lose qualification before the 15th you will not be able to qualify until December 1st.

*Claimed QRates will not carry over from before the clan battle starts. The QRate must be found, opened, and claimed during the month of the current clan battle. This time period begins on the 3rd, same as the clan battle.

*All shards may be redeemed at https://www.munzee.com/redeem
Total points include Cap, Deploy, and CapOn of all types.
Reseller caps/deploys include all types of RUM/vRUM/reseller card but NOT reseller gnomes or any scatters.
Bouncer captures include any POB, MOB, or TOB (even the temporary POB).
Social and Personal will not count for Deploy requirements.
Social and Universal will not count for total Capture requirements.
Personal and Universal will not count for Physical points of any sort.

For complete information regarding Clan Wars, access our Help Guide!

Hints for how to play during Stay Home orders:
Use the swap feature for brand new virtual deploys.
Use the online map to deploy virtuals worldwide or find gardens to deploy in on social media groups.
Watch the online store for sales during the month to help meet your goals.
Use evolution reset credits to get new CapOn points from OLD deploys (they do NOT count as new deploys)

And finally, be responsible. If your local government, your health, or any circumstances require you to Stay Home – DO NOT participate. It is up to each of us to determine what is safe and what is allowed. This is a game and not worth risking your own live or the lives of others.
Munzee on, stay safe and Play Your Way!

Requirements and rewards found in app are the final word. Please report any issues to Munzee support.
Play at your own risk, within the laws of your local area.

Flat Cat Scatters to Celebrate National Cat Day!

Whether you’re a cat person or not, there’s no denying that cats are the animals we associate most with spooky season — after all, they are the preferred pet of witches (especially black ones) — though owls, with their ominous hoots, are a close second (but aren’t they basically just cats with wings?). It’s even more fitting then, that National Cat Day is on October 29th, so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have some fun with Mari’s Flat Cats!

Limited Time Scatter Details

From the period of Thursday, October 27th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, October 30th at 23:59 MHQ, when you capture Flat Cats, up to 3 Cat Toys may be scattered nearby!

The Cat Toys will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Flat Cats owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes, have a capture radius of 300 feet, and you’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well! These Cat Toy scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Cat Toys are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 25 points

For more information about Flat Cats, check out our Help Guide article!

Badges

There are 2 badges available for this special period. Make sure you cap as many Cat Toys as you can to receive both badges!

Flash Discount!

Need more Flat Cats near you? We’ve got a “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” discount at the Freeze Tag Store! You must add 3 Flat Cats to your cart to use it, and are limited to 2 uses per order (in other words — put 6 in the cart, pay for 4, 2 are free). There is NO CODE required — the discount should apply automatically! It will be valid for the same time period as the scatters mentioned above.

We hope you don’t get too tuckered out playing with Benji and Burr!

Munzee on!

Bee-Ball Bouncers for Sports Fans!

Basketball season officially kicked off last week, so if all of the Halloween-themed releases aren’t your thing, perhaps you’ll enjoy shooting some some Bee-Ball with your favorite Freeze Tag Mascot!

Bee-Ball Bouncer Details

The Bee-Ball Bouncers are temporary POBs that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31, 2022 — when it will be automatically archived on your account. You may recall that this is similar to the Baby Animals, or most recently, the Mad Hatter Garden Gnome.

You can choose between the Munzee Mascot or the WallaBee Mascot as you’ll see below. If you’re interested in scouting a single player, both, or even wish to form a whole team, you can do so HERE!

You can find these costumed teammates racing to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, both Bee-Ball Bouncers will scatter up to 3 NEW Bee-Balls nearby when they are captured!

Bee-Ball
Points
  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 25 points

These scatters will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Bee-Ball Bouncer owner’s account. This means that unlike Air Mystery Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

Badges

There are deploy badges for each Bee-Ball Bouncer, which you can see below.

There are also 6 capture badges associated with these bouncers: 3 are based on overall Mascot captures, and the remaining 3 are based on overall Bee-Ball captures. Make sure to cap as many as you can to progress through both badge lines!

We hope you enjoy seeing these masked athletes on the map!

Munzee on!

October 2022 GOTM Winners

We began October finishing the last 2 days of our Around ZEE World Mailbox. In the middle of the week, we started our first ZEE-Dayz of the month, this time featuring Flat Friends and Flat Objects! Then on Friday we kicked off the first of our Halloween-themed releases, the Candy Crypt MOBs and Pumpkoins! On Saturday, Mari, Mick, and Tamara attended the Southern California October Munzee Monthly Event, where they got to comfortably catch up with players and take advantage of the double points period!

The next week was Rob’s turn to attend events — he was able to attend all 6 of the SC Munzee Jubilee 2022 events, even posting a quick video to check in! As promised, we had our second ZEE-Dayz during this time, featuring Greeting Cards since they are popular choices to deploy at events. We also released some new Halloween cards, and brought back some old designs from last year. The next day, we released the Count Calcula Mech, available for Pumpkoins, and more artifacts for the Candy Crypt MOBs!

This past week, we welcomed our new Queen Munzee, humbird7, and celebrated by deploying 100 Hummingbird tPOBs on her account! We also put out info on a Christmas Party Add-On for December Events, and had a successful app update featuring potential GPS fixes and In-App Map Links. Just yesterday, we went back into Halloween mode with NEW Myth SkeleSkins.

We are now happy to announce the winners of the October Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded by early November, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

October GOTM

This month, as you’ve probably guessed, we’ve chosen gardens that bring the spirit of Halloween to the map! Remember that all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award the Halloween in Ottawa garden, designed by Jeffeth, and the Hungry Bat 🦇 Terry 🔋 garden, designed by Rikitan, as our winning October GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Halloween in Ottawa by Jeffeth in Ottawa, ON, Canada

We love the scene Jeffeth designed to fit within his signature window frame! A Jack-o’-lantern and ghost lit from behind by an eerie full moon!

Here’s a note from the player who designed this garden:

I am excited for Fall, and for Halloween next month! I am also excited to see what Munzee has planned! This is my final window in my seasonal set here in Ottawa..spoooooky lol

We hope Jeffeth has been enjoying the Halloween-themed releases we mentioned earlier in this post, and that he’s looking forward to what we have planned for the rest of the month! If the design of this garden looks familiar, we previously chose his Christmas in Ottawa garden as one of last December’s GOTM! We thought it made the perfect partner to the other winner, as you’ll see below:

Hungry Bat 🦇 Terry 🔋 by Rikitan in Bratislava, Slovakia

Rikitan’s recommendation of placing Void Mysteries with Virtual Colors in a garden to catch the scatters is a great strategy that many garden designers employ. What other types do you like pairing with Virtual Colors?

Here’s a note from the player who designed this garden:

I wanted to create space (pun intended) for new species of virtual munzees – Void mysteries. They go well together with colored virtuals – for catching the scatters. Regarding design – combination of cute & dark always works well, so I went for a bat. For extra fun & story factor, I combine it with low battery and named whole thing “Hungry Bat Terry / Hungry battery”. You know, when you play Munzee out in winter season, your cell phone battery is exhausted very quickly!

We loved the punny name and design that Rikitan came up with! It’s simple but effective, fitting in perfectly with the Halloween theme but also making the garden unique and relatable — our devices do have to work harder when the weather is extremely cold!

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Based on your feedback, we’ve created a Google Form where you can submit GOTM nominations — here’s the link: https://forms.gle/SjUQeRxdi5FT81pCA

We’ll still check the iloveyou@munzee.com inbox for stragglers, but please try to send your submissions to this new Google Form instead. Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

Munzee on!

P.S. Are you looking for POTM requirements? Remember that last year, we announced that we were holding off on POTM for now as we develop a new way to highlight our unique player base!

Congratulations humbird7!

Today we celebrate a significant event in Munzee history, which has been many years in the making, and occurred Friday afternoon. It’s time to announce a new “Queen Munzee” has arrived — congratulations to humbird7, whose consistent efforts have finally allowed her to reach the ultimate goal!

If you’ve attended any Munzee Events in the past (especially the larger events, or any events near her home base), you may have met humbird7, aka Sandra, but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know her, or would like a refresher, you can check out her previous Player of the Week post HERE!

Hummingbird Details

To celebrate this momentus occasion, we’ve created a new temporary POB especially for humbird7 based on her signature bird and profile picture. As humbird7 always posts a lovely hummingbird photo on most of the bouncers she caps, we encourage you to also post photos and messages on these munzees as well, if you are lucky to cap one! We’re sure humbird7 will enjoy seeing your well-wishes!

The Hummingbird will remain on the map through the end of the year — 23:59 MHQ on Saturday, December 31st. We’ve deployed 100 of these on humbird7’s account!

Hummingbird
Points
  • Deploy: 0
  • Capture: 277
  • CapOn: 10
Additional Info
  • Available for multi-capture
  • Non-blastable
  • Attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets
  • Filters: “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials”

You can find these beautiful birds flying to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

  • Greenies
  • Premiums
  • Evolutions:
    • All stages of Tulip
    • All stages of Rose
    • All stages of Lily
  • Jewels:
    • Pink Diamond
    • Aquamarine

Badges

There is 1 badge you can earn by capturing a Hummingbird. Since there is only one, we’ll keep it a secret for now.

Queenly Wishes

After re-reading humbird7’s POTW post mentioned above, we checked to see if any of her wishes have been fulfilled since then, and which we could try to fulfill now that she’s Queen:

“My top wish is that the virtuals would not block physical placement; that there would be 2 layers to the game. Say, you visit Celebration Park and want to leave a physical, you can’t because of all of the virtuals in the area.”
→ Fulfilled on June 21, 2019

“I would also like the option of upgrading old Mystery Virtuals for a small fee so that the owner would receive more than 3 CapOn points.”
→ Fulfilled on October 19, 2018 ✅ (with no fee!)

“I would like a 250K Day badge…”
→ Still Unfulfilled ⚠️

“…as well as some myth badges for 250, 500, 1000, and the king of capping 1500 unique myths. I know this may be hard for some people, including myself, but it’s always good to have a goal.”
→ Fulfilled on August 18, 2017

Since the “Points in a Day” badge line was the only thing left for us to tackle, we got to work on extending it! It now has 4 more badges! They will be retroactive, but only within the last 30 days.

In addition, although we had fulfilled her wish about the “Unique Myth Capture” badge line, we’ve planned to extend it very soon with 1 more badge for each of the following myths:

  • Unicorn
  • Leprechaun
  • Dragon
  • Yeti
  • Faun
  • Hydra
  • Pegasus
  • Cyclops

You’ll notice the MythologiGals are left out — this is because their population hasn’t reached the same numbers as the other myths since they are the newest set. We’ll have to extend their badges some time in the future!

We’ll also extend the Unique Modern Myth Capture badge line by 1, most likely on the same day the Unique Myth Capture badges are extended!

We hope you join us in celebrating humbird7 — long may she reign!

Munzee on!
