  • Zodiac Munzees
    • Aquarius

Ready to earn some points? Capturing the Gorgon will earn you 500 points, with 50 points for CapOn!

Points

  • Capture: 500
  • CapOn: 50

The Gorgon will be attracted to both Physical and Virtual Munzee Magnets, but she is NOT blastable.

Don’t forget the Gorgon will also count toward the Mythical Meetings TOB badges! You can access a complete list of FT team accounts at the end of the blog. But first, we have more Banshee fun!

Banshee Capture Badges

Alongside the release of the Gorgon, players also have the opportunity to start earning brand new Banshee badges! If you brave the Banshee, you will now have the opportunity to earn SIX new Banshee Capture badges! Ready to set some capture goals? The first three badges in the series will appear as follows:

Munzee Fitness Update is Here to Whip You into Shape!

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, then chances are it’s finally starting to warm up (apologies to Southern Hemisphere). What better time to get active, especially since we are happy to announce the integration of new fitness features with the latest version of the Munzee app! We also have more than a dozen new Fitness Badges as well as a Community Step Challenge through the end of the month. Read on to learn more!

Fitness Updates

For all you fitness fanatics and diligent step counters, you can now integrate fitness features on the app! Our recent updates now allow players to track steps and distance using a compatible fitness provider. The following fitness providers are all compatible with the latest version of Munzee, so if you didn’t install Munzee 4.0 for iOS or Android, now is the time to jump straight to 4.1! Please remember the update is populating worldwide, which can sometimes take a few hours. So if you don’t immediately see it, just check back regularly!

Compatible fitness providers

  • Apple Health
  • FitBit
  • (NEW) GoogleFit
  • (NEW) Garmin

In addition to doubling our amount of compatible fitness devices, there are several other features in this latest update. You can learn more about fitness integration below, but here is a comprehensive list of changes:

  • Fitness features integrated with version 4.1 Munzee app, found in the Profile section of the app
  • Dual Map and Compass buttons added to the Munzee Details page
  • The compass screen now displays accurate latitude/longitude coordinates
  • Rovers now appear on the map if you’ve already captured the host, but have the capture filter disabled
  • Rovers now appear on the map if you own the host, but have the owned filter disabled

Syncing Your Device

Ready to start getting rewarded for your steps? If you have any of the four compatible devices, you can sync yours to Munzee today to start earning badges for your steps! You will be able to view all Fitness information from your player profile. Simply go to your profile and click the Fitness tab in order to view the Munzee Fitness daily activity and Fitness Vendor Authorization.

To sync your fitness device of choice, select the Fitness Vendor Authorization and choose which device you’d like to authorize. You will then be prompted to login to your Fitness device. Fitbit users, we kindly ask for you to login to your Fitbit account by entering your email and password for the Fitbit account. There seems to be an error that prevents people from logging in to their Fitbit via their Facebook or Google account options at the moment. All fitness device users, be sure to grant any necessary permission for your fitness device.

Once you login to your device, it will be linked to your Munzee account, and you will see a screen that reads “Authorization Successful!” You can now View Activity under the Munzee Fitness tab on your Player Profile to keep up with your progress! After you have authorized a fitness vendor, the Munzee Fitness tab will always be available for checking your daily activity.

Syncing your device is that easy! However, if you are more of a visual learner, we have created a Fitness Syncing Help Guide article that you can follow to help sync your device.

A Personal Challenge

Another update we have made to the Munzee Fitness program is the removal of Fitness Leaderboards. We know this may come as a shock to all of you competitive steppers, but we believe that Munzee Fitness is a personal tool for you to use to keep track of your daily activity. We encourage you all to set daily goals for yourself and maintain physical activity on your own accord. If you do prefer the challenging aspect of leaderboards, luckily the Fitness device you connected may still have those capabilities! It just won’t be a feature built into the Munzee platform moving forward.

Badges

We believe that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, but health is an invaluable aspect of well-being that should never be swept aside. To encourage staying active and keeping your heart healthy, our new update offers the chance to earn over a dozen new fitness badges! These new badges have an updated design from the original badges and even more goals to reach.

If you have already earned any of the previously available Fitness badges, you will of course keep them. If you did not earn any of the original fitness badges they will no longer be available. All player data will be started fresh with the launch of this app update and everyone starts with the ability to earn only the new badges. In other words this new sync will act like Day One in your Munzee fitness journey for all players.

In total there are now four categories for Fitness badges!

The new Lifetime Miles badges have similar artwork to the previous line with the updated Munzee M. These badges award players for every thousand miles they walk up to 6,000 lifetime miles! If you earned the previous Lifetime Miles you’ll still get to see those in your collection, but now you have all new badges to walk for! The first in the new series appears as follows:

1k Lifetime Miles – Walk 1,000 lifetime miles using a supported Munzee fitness tracker.

Meanwhile, there will be an additional  TWO new Steps Per Day badges based on achieving outstanding daily steps. Players will still be able to earn the previous three badges (5k, 10k, 15k steps in one day) if they have not already earned them, but now you can also earn badges for stepping 20k and 25k in a single day!

We’re also excited to introduce new Streak Badges earned for consistent days of fitness!  You can earn these badges by walking at least 10,000 steps a day for multiple days in a row. The first badge, The Triathlete, can be earned when you walk at least 10k steps for three days in a row! We won’t reveal all of the streak requirements just yet, but after you earn the first one you should have a good idea of how long to keep going. The first in this all new badge series appears as follows:

Finally, there is a line of new Distance Badges to earn based on completing different mile achievements over time. These work like the Lifetime Miles Badges, but are based on very distinct distances. The fun part about these badges is they will inform you of how the distance you have walked compares to the real world. For example, if you earn the following badge, you will have walked the distance of England’s east coast to its west coast!

Coast-to-Coast- Walk 192 miles (309km) using a supported Munzee Fitness tracker.

Please be aware all badges may take up to 48 hours to appear after syncing your daily steps.

Community Challenge!

It’s time for a deep stretch, because you’re really going to be inclined to get moving when you hear about our fitness contest! Starting today and lasting until 23:59 MHQ time on May 31, we will be doing a 4.1 million steps challenge! (No, you don’t have to complete those steps yourself!) Everyone who syncs their devices will be challenged to collectively walk 4.1 million steps before the month ends. All who sync their devices to Munzee 4.1 will be automatically entered into a drawing for one of three prizes!

The *prizes include:

  1. 15 Urban Fit credits
  2. $25 Freeze Tag Store Gift card
  3. 15 Urban Fit coded stickers (available only from Authorized Munzee Resellers)

*One prize per winner.
**ALL participants who sync and walk at least 45,000 steps by May 31 will also receive ONE Urban Fit credit! Steps must be in our system before 23:59 May 31 to count.

One more time, don’t forget to update to Munzee 4.1 through your app store and sync your fitness device! We’re sure you’ll have all sorts of questions, so check out the Munzee Fitness FAQ Help Guide article, which we will also be updating over the next few days as we receive questions.

We hope this fitness update encourages you to get up and start moving. With cardiovascular disease cited as the leading global cause of death, hitting daily activity goals through as little as moderately paced walking for set periods of time can tremendously impact your health!

Get active, and Munzee on!

New MOB Specials Are Ready to Hit the Map!

Think you can handle a little more excitement? Since we announced the BETA launch of our PinPoints Loyalty Program, we have witnessed many players redeeming their hard-earned PinPoints for prizes of their choosing. We thought why not keep the celebration going with the introduction of our TWO PinPoints bouncing specials starting on May 10 at 00:01 MHQ time!

Both the physical and virtual PinPoints specials are Munzee Owned Bouncers (MOB) and they hit the map at midnight and stay on the map until May 20 at 23:59 MHQ time. You can learn more about each type below!

PinPoints Virtual Special

There will be a total of 50 PinPoints Virtual Specials. Even though there may not be as many as other specials they will be bouncing quick. The specials will bounce to all colors of regular virtuals every 4 hours or when captured. Each capture will reward you 100 points AND 2 PinPoints!

Points

  • Capture: 100 points and 2 PinPoints
  • CapOn: 10 points

The virtual special will not be blastable, but it will be attracted to Virtual Magnets from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can capture the virtual bouncing special on your own munzees and on munzees that you have already captured.

PinPoints Physical Special

A total of 200 PinPoints Physical Specials will be bouncing to greenies every 8 hours or when capped. You will earn 100 points and 5 PinPoints for every capture. This special will be attracted to Physical Magnets, and you can capture it on your own munzees or munzees you have already capped.

Points

  • Capture: 100 points and 5 PinPoints
  • CapOn: 15 points

You will also earn the following badge for capturing one PinPoints Special of any type. The badge will appear as follows:

PinPointer!- Capture 1 PinPoints Special of any type

Quick PinPoints Refresher

Are you still figuring out your PinPoints account? To start earning points through our PinPoints Loyalty Program, we have several sources that can help you out. If you need help setting up your account, check out the PinPoints Help Guide and this video to get your PinPoints account set up today. And for a basic breakdown of the PinPoints Loyalty Program, check out this video, while you can also find more information about PinPoints in the PinPoints FAQ and the PinPoints Terms and Conditions.

We hope you enjoy these PinPoints bouncing specials! Remember that this is just the BETA launch of our PinPoints program, so we appreciate your patience as we work on any bugs that might arise.

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

Cinco de Mayo Means Mexico Global Grub!

Feliz Cinco de Mayo! It’s the annual day of celebrating the Mexican Army’s underdog victory over France way back in 1862, though the date is often confused in the United States with being Mexico’s Independence Day. We’re happy to set the record straight while offering another of our Global Grub specials, with Mexico Global Grub hitting the map today at 15:00 MHQ time!

This virtual Global Grub special will join the ranks of current Global Grub Munzees, including Thailand, Switzerland, Australia, and China. Five Mexico Global Grub Munzees will be deployed. They will be bouncing to regular virtuals and colored virtuals every 12 hours or when captured.

Points

  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Have you had the pleasure of capturing a Global Grub Munzee yet? Each time a Global Grub is capped, the player will earn a special badge containing a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country. Capturing a Mexico Global Grub special will award you the following tasty badge:

Are you in the mood for a bowl of chili con carne? (We know we are!) This delicious dish offers a spicy meat stew brimming with chili peppers, tomatoes, beans, and plenty of spices. Toss in the garlic, onion, and cumin for a flavor punch! The good news is chili con carne is a very flexible dish, so feel free to tweak this hearty recipe to suit your personal preference!

The Global Grub specials will bounce around the globe for the remainder of the year before leaving the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ time. You will have until then to try your luck capturing these very rare specials!  We will also be putting out an overall capture line in the future. Be sure to stay turned for more exciting Global Grub updates!

Munzee on!

Introducing the Latest Pouch Creature…

UPDATE: Pimedus and the Pouch Creature Collection are now LIVE! You can also pick up Bouncer Upgrades and a Pimedus Personal Tag!

Remember Hadavale, the friendly white ghost TOB who offered a sizable BOOST in points? Well, there is another ghost in town, and this POB goes by the name Pimedus! Pimedus might not appear as friendly at first glance, but the latest Pouch Creature will be going on sale today at 15:00 MHQ time for 24-hours in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

That’s right, an entire day in the store means you won’t have to set your timers for odd hours in order to guarantee a Pimedus purchase! You can pick up your Pimedus Pouch Creature (link not active until 15:00 MHQ) for $15. Pimedus will be joining the ranks of Mitmegu, Tuli, Vesi, Muru, and Hadavale as the latest Munzee Pouch Creature. Pouch Creatures are based on items from our sister app, WallaBee, and represent a new era of munzees to enjoy!

Pimedus

Not to be outshone by her white ghost mate, the black ghost will have her own set of unique special features. Pimedus will operate similar to a Prize Wheel, randomly offering different prizes for cappers! You can earn points, PinPoints, maybe even the ALL NEW Physical Capture Booster Credit! That means you never know what prize you’ll be getting! Don’t let Pimedus fool you— she is far more generous than she might appear! HOWEVER, there is a very small chance that Pimedus might be feeling greedy, in which case she could steal some of your points. The chance of this is very slim, but if she does steal points she will give you a larger than usual amount of PinPoints! It looks like you’ll have to capture her at your own caution!

Points

  • Deploy: 250 points
  • Capture: Will vary from 10 possibilities including the following options:
    • 200 points
    • 80 points and one 2x Physical Capture Booster Credit
    • LOSE 100 points BUT EARN 50 PinPoints
    • Additional rewards that could rotate monthly (usually about 10 total)

While the capper of Pimedus will receive one of the listed prize options, each Pimedus owner will ALSO have the chance to earn a random prize for each CapOn! As always, the black ghost will be feeling temperamental, so you never know what you’ll receive! (Cut her some slack, she’s going through a moody phase!) The prize options at launch for CapOn will appear as follows:

  • 100 points
  • LOSE 100 points BUT EARN 50 PinPoints
  • 100 points and 1 PinPoint
  • 10 points and 10 PinPoints
  • 50 points and 5 PinPoints
  • Additional rewards that could rotate monthly (usually 5-10 total)

Are you excited for a little game of risk vs. reward? You can find Pimedus hanging out on the following landing pads:

However, you can also unlock the following landing pads with a Bouncer Upgrade Credit for an additional $5, from the Freeze Tag Online Store. These additional landing pads include:

When the Bouncer Upgrade credit is used, your Pimedus will also have the ability to be “nudged” to a new munzee. You can use the nudge feature up to three times a day (MHQ 24-hour day), but only after your munzee has sat for at least 3 hours. Additionally, the Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Pimedus! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct, and be mindful of maintaining a family friendly environment!

Pimedus will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Pimedus on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Pimedus visits you. However, Pimedus will be non-blastable. This Pouch Creature will be attracted exclusively to Physical Magnets on Greenies. (That means Virtual Magnets aren’t going to help you in this situation!) You can access Pimedus under the “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Pouch Creatures” filters.

2x Physical Capture Booster Credit

As stated above, Pimedus will also give you the opportunity to earn 2x Physical Capture Booster Credits. Much like when you capture a Hadavale and earn a Physical Deploy Booster, if you earn a Physical Capture Booster from a Pimedus you’ll be able to use it at your own convenience from your inventory tab in app. Although Hadavale awards a Booster every time it’s capped, since there will be many more Pimedus floating around there’s a slimmer chance at earning a Physical Capture Booster. A new over-the-air update has been pushed, so now you’ll be also able to use multiple Booster types at the same time! Just activate both boosters and get to capping and deploying! Or stick with one at a time if you like, it’s all up to you when you activate a booster!

Badges

All players who deploy a Pimedus will receive the following deploy badge:

Additionally, there will be three more badges to unlock based on number of Pimedus captures. The first in the series will appear as follows:

Bronze Pimedus Scout– Capture 1 Pimedus Pouch Creature Munzee

Pimedus will be available for sale exclusively from the Freeze Tag Online Store for 24-hours only starting at 15:00 MHQ time today. Hopefully this isn’t the time you chose to take a digital retreat, because this Pouch Creature offers plenty of fun!

Munzee on!

May Resolutions Badge Details

How has 2019 been treating you so far? If it hasn’t been your year to shine, fear not, because there are still eight months left for positive growth and change! Our monthly Capture Streak Badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement, bringing us the resolution to eat healthy (January), make new friends (February), explore new hobbies (March), and get organized (April). Summer is fast approaching on the Northern Hemisphere, and our May Resolutions badge is to travel more!

Each month’s badge is dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Each month provides the opportunity to put your best foot forward, so if you’re new to the game or accidentally missed a day, there’s no time like the present to get started on your streaks!

Traveling Tips

Many people plan to travel, but then this crazy thing happens. Life gets in the way. Traveling can be a financial burden for many, and big vacations can often take years to plan and save up. However, you only get one life to live, and that life should be filled with happy adventure! Traveling doesn’t have to mean flying around the world; it can involve simply getting into your car and driving to a town nearby that you haven’t explored. It can even involve venturing to new places in your town!

Break the routine of prosaic living and allow yourself the chance to experience more of what the world has to offer. Traveling allows for the chance to experience new walks of life, expand your perspective, and meet new people along the way. Learn how to travel the smart way with budget friendly tips. Rather than rent expensive hotels, take advantage of room renting services, such as Airbnb, to save money. This will also allow you the opportunity to select lodging with a kitchen so that you can save money on dining out! Shopping local and preparing meals will save you a lot of money while away from home.

Many plan vacations for the summer, but traveling in the off-season is almost always a guaranteed way to save money. You can also cut down on expenses by traveling with friends or family, in order to split costs, or by traveling to where you know people. Though you might be tempted to stop for mementos, gift shops and general shopping should be avoided in order to save big bucks. The memories you make should be more than enough, and the less you purchase, the more you’ll be able to travel in the future. Lastly, always try to do some online searching pre-trip to scout out the best deals in the area you’re heading to.

Still don’t think you’ll be able to squeeze a trip in? Luckily you still have Munzee, a real world scavenger hunt that is all about exploration! Remember you can always set up Trail Munzees to lead other players down paths worth exploring in your neighborhood!

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!

Alien Day Means Invasion of New Specials!

Are you sad that the ZEEster Egg specials will be leaving the map on Sunday at 22:22 MHQ time? If only another egg would fly down and fill the void! Wait— didn’t MHQ promise that there would be MOBs on the map every day in April to help with Clan War requirements? AND isn’t today a funky sort of holiday? Ah, yes, it’s Alien Day. And MHQ isn’t going to disappoint. 👽🥚

The Alien Invasion Specials will include two bouncing specials, one that comes equipped with a scatter. They invaded the map at 9:11 MHQ time on April 26 and will remain until Sunday, May 5 at 23:59 MHQ time. Think you can spot a UFO? First it’s probably best to read up on them…

Alien Egg

To start things off, only one Alien Egg special hit the map. Only one?! Fear not, every time an Alien Egg is capped, another will be added to the map for a maximum of 426 Alien Eggs total.

The Alien Egg is a physical MOB that doesn’t want to stay in place. It will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. You can increase your chances of capturing this bouncing special with Munzee Magnets, since the Alien Egg WILL be attracted to them.

Points

  • Cap: 52 points
  • Host: 26 points

Where exactly can one find these scrambled space snacks? The Alien Egg will land on the following:

  • Greenies
  • Physical Farm Set Evolutions
    • Tomato Seed, Tomato Plant, Tomato
    • Corn Seed, Corn Plant, Corn
    • Golden Carrot Seed, Golden Carrot Plant, Golden Carrot
    • Calf, Cow, Milk
    • Piglet, Pig, Bacon
    • Lean-To Shed, Garden Shed, Barn
    • Hoe, Plow, Tractor

There will be two badges to earn in association with the Alien Egg Munzees. The first badge will appear as follows:

EGGStraterrestrial– Capture 1 Alien Egg Special

So, each time you capture an Alien Egg, another will be deployed somewhere around the world until 426 are active. PLUS, it will cause an Alien Potato to scatter to a nearby Greenie within 1750 feet (533.4 m).

Alien Potato

It seems the aliens are trying to repopulate their species, but something turned out wrong… Yep, the Alien Egg scatters a special for you to enjoy as well! And it’s JUST as cute as the ZEEster Hatched Egg scatters! 😉

See- sooo cute! 

The Alien Potato will hatch on a Greenie 1,750 feet from the Alien Egg captured prior. It will stay there for two hours or when capped, available to ANY player. Each Alien Potato can only be captured ONCE. They will land exclusively on Greenies within the scatter radius. Although the Alien Potato doesn’t actually bounce after it is capped, it will count as a MOB in Clan Wars.

Points

  • Cap: 51 points
  • Host: 25 points

While there are two badges to be earned in association with Alien Egg captures, there are also two badges to earn for capturing Alien Potatoes. The first in the series will appear as follows:

Space Spuds– Capture 1 Alien Potato Special

And that’s not all!

UFO

What’s vibrant green and shapeless and has five eyes? A Munzee UFO! These little green men have become a nuisance to farms around the world and they must be stopped! This hybrid special will land on physicals and virtuals, similar to how some Munzee Myths operate. While we’re only starting out with one Alien Egg hitting the map, you will be treated to 426 UFO specials from the start!

This MOB will bounce around every 4 hours or when captured. The UFO specials WILL be attracted to Virtual Magnets only.

Points

  • Cap: 40 points
  • Host: 26 points

Finally, it’s been determined where you can find UFOs! 🤪 The UFO Munzees will land on the following:

  • Virtuals
  • Physical and Virtual Farm Set Evolutions
    • Tomato Seed, Tomato Plant, Tomato
    • Corn Seed, Corn Plant, Corn
    • Golden Carrot See, Golden Carrot Plant, Golden Carrot
    • Calf, Cow, Milk
    • Piglet, Pig, Bacon
    • Lean-To Shed, Garden Shed, Barn
    • Hoe, Plow, Tractor
    • Carrot Seed, Carrot Plant, Carrot
    • Peas Seed, Peas Plant, Peas
    • Colt, Racehorse, Championship Horse
    • Chick, Chicken, Eggs
    • Farmer, Farmer and Wife, Family
    • Potted Plant, Garden, Field

There will also be two badges you can earn based on UFO Munzee captures, to bring the total to six new badges associated with the Alien Invasion. The first in the series will appear as follows:

Celestial Cows– Capture 1 UFO Special

Personal Tags

Still need a little more EGGStraterrestrial presence? We’ll also be offering special Alien Invasion themed Munzee Personal Tags in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Pick one up today while supplies last to show off your out of this world good taste.

Was this enough to convert you to a believer?

Holiday Goodies are on the Horizon with ZEEster Eggs!

Update: All ZEEster Eggs and Hatched Eggs count as MOBs (Munzee Owned Bouncers.) 

Will the Easter Bunny be hopping to your house this year? Even if you’re not expecting a visit from this furry friend, you can still fill up your Easter basket with plenty of treats. However, these goodies aren’t of the edible variety— but that doesn’t mean that they won’t satisfy! The Munzee ZEEster Eggs will launch on April 17 at 00:01 MHQ time and stay on the map until April 28 at 22:22 MHQ time for quadruple the holiday fun!

ZEEster Eggs

How do you like your eggs cooked? Scrambled? Over easy? With a side of points? (We’ll have the last option!) The ZEEster Eggs will introduce four new Munzee specials to the game, including the physical Blue Egg, Red Egg, and Yellow Egg, as well as the virtual White Egg. Worried about being able to cap one? All four Eggs can be magnetized. Be sure to pick up your Virtual Magnets and Physical Magnets from the Freeze Tag Online Store to increase your capping chances!

The ZEEster Egg specials will hit the map April 17 at midnight MHQ time and enjoy a comfortable run until April 28. In that time span, the Eggs will bounce around every 6 hours or when captured. There will be a set number of each Egg landing on the map, with 419 White Eggs, 140 of both Blue and Red eggs, and 139 Yellow Eggs.

The Eggs will not be blastable, but you CAN capture on your “owned” munzees or any previously capped munzee. You can access this special under the Premium “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The physical and virtual specials will land on greenies and all color virtuals, respectively.

Points

  • White Egg: split 60 points with a minimum of 15 for Capture and Host PLUS receive 1 PinPoint (What’s that?!)
  • Blue/Red/Yellow Egg: split 75 points with a minimum of 17 for Capture and Host PLUS receive 1 PinPoint
  • Hatched Eggs (all colors): Cap 100 points PLUS receive 5 PinPoints, No CapOn points

Hatched Eggs

Wait, did the points include Hatched Eggs?! We almost forgot to mention, there is a fair chance that capturing a ZEEster Egg will lead to a Scatter in the form of Hatched Eggs!

There is a chance upon capturing a physical Egg or a virtual Egg that a Hatched Egg will be caused to scatter. Capturing the White Egg has the possibility for a Hatched White Egg to scatter within 2,000 feet as a new virtual, similar to how the Feather Munzee works. Upon capturing one of the physical Eggs, the corresponding Red/Blue/Yellow Hatched Egg has the chance to scatter within 1,400 feet as a new virtual. The capture radius will be 300 feet for the Hatched Egg scatters. They will not be blastable OR have magnet attraction.

Points

  • Hatched Eggs (all colors): Cap 100 points PLUS receive 5 PinPoints, No CapOn points

Badges

That’s not all the fun to be had! In addition to our ZEEster Eggs and Hatched Eggs, there will also be a line of badges associated with the specials. Be sure to capture lots of different combinations of both Egg and Hatched Egg colors, because there are a total of five badges you can earn! Since we’re celebrating a holiday, we’ll give you a sneak peak of the first badge in the series below:

The ZEEster Bunny– Capture 1 ZEEster Egg Special of any kind.

Remember, April is all about fitness, so lace up your shoes and get out there for some hunting! Hopefully our latest specials will give you that extra initiative to get moving. Are you ready to have some early Easter fun?

Happy Hunting (and Happy Holidays!) and Munzee on!

P.S. Thanks to Robbie and the WallaBee team for sharing more amazing art and putting a Munzee spin on it for these specials!

Recycling Program Revamped with QRew and QRewzee Launches!

Article has been updated. 

Many Munzee players are already familiar with ZeeQRew, an elite program that is composed of players who have shown a dedication to growing the game of Munzee. They also replace missing munzees in order to assist in gameplay upkeep. In line with our active initiative, we are excited to announce a new type of Munzee to replace the old recycling program, as well as a new team of helpful players. It’s time to welcome the launch of the QRewzee Munzee and the addition of the brand new QRew team to the game!

QRew

With the game growing every day, we decided that even a crew as talented as ZeeQRew could use some extra cleanup help. That’s where QRew comes into play, a brand new title and duty that some of you might have already seen assigned to your game profiles. This new group of players can be thought of as “ZeeQRew Jr.” It’s an introductory level for those of you that are still working to achieve full ZeeQRew status.

Just like ZeeQRew has its own list of requirements, there are specific requirements for joining QRew. In order to become a member of QRew, you have to be a Premium MemberThe additional requirements for making QRew are as follows:

  • Have at least 100 deploys of any type AND
  • Have at least 1,000 captures of any type AND
  • Have at least 1 cap and 1 deploy in the last 14 days

If you are one of the players who is currently eligible for QRew, you will notice a new title on your profile! Exactly like ZeeQRew, QRew status is earned or revoked at 00:01 MHQ time on the 1st and 15th of each month if requirements are met.

If the requirements are met on these dates, the player will earn or retain the ZeeQRew or QRew title. If the requirements are not met, the title will be removed from any current ZeeQRew or QRew players, BUT it may be re-earned at the next checkpoint. Keep in mind that since the QRew requirements are not as steep as ZeeQRew, it’s also possible for a player to grow from QRew to ZeeQRew. However, if you lose ZeeQRew you are nothing (but you have the chance to regain your status)!

The rewards for QRew are as follows:

  • QRew title in app & online
  • The ability to replace any physical Munzee, regardless of owner, using a generic sticker*

Although the title has already been awarded, the ability for QRew members to replace munzees will be available in a V4 app update coming very soon! There will be no badge, discount, or unique merchandise associated with QRew. Players must continue to grow and become ZeeQRew to earn added rewards. However, QRew isn’t the only update to the former Munzee recycling program…

QRewzee

Along with the launch of QRew, we are happy to announce a new type of munzee to replace the former Recycle Munzee. All QRew and ZeeQRew members will see this icon on the map for the following physical Munzee types which have had no activity on them in the last 365 days. These munzees include:

  • All Physical Jewels
  • Physical Clan Weapons
  • Greenies
  • Regular (Blue) Mysteries and Physical Elemental Mysteries including Fire, Earth, Water, and Ice
  • Premium Munzees

The new icons will only appear on designated QRewsdays. Each month a schedule will be announced to designate when QRewsdays will occur, similar to how our monthly Flat Friends schedules work**. Capture of the QRewzee Munzee will award 100 points and the icon. There will be 10 CapOn points. You CAN capture a QRewzee Munzee on your own munzee or a previously captured munzee.

Points

  • Capture: 100 points
  • CapOn: 10 points

To see the QRewzee Munzees, look on the physical “Others” filter and the new QRewzee filter under premium options to “Only show these types.” Please note that players will only be able to specifically filter QRewzees in v4 of the Munzee app.

There will also be a line of hidden badges associated with capture of the QRewzee Munzees. The first in the series will appear as follows:

QRew Your Part!- Capture 1 QRewzee Munzee

Without the diligence of our elite group of players, Munzee wouldn’t be the same! Thanks to all ZeeQRew members for their past gameplay upkeep and hope the new QRewzee points will be an incentive to keep it up. We appreciate all players that take the time and opportunity to grow the map and make Munzee better for all! We are excited to launch QRew and see more players get involved in upkeep and maintenance!

Munzee on!

**April QRewsdays will be:

April 16 – 10:00 to April 18 – 23:59
April 21 – 00:01 to April 24 – 23:59
April 26 – 00:01 to April 29 – 23:59
