September 2020 GOTM Winners + October POTM Requirements!

Last year, we were planning to celebrate this year’s bash on Friday, September 25. Unfortunately, as you know, COVID-19 had other plans. Instead of the usual in-person events we traditionally enjoy, we had to seriously brainstorm how we’d handle it virtually this year. So far, we’ve released the Universal, specials commemorating past bash years with a complimentary and complementary Eventzee hunt, had a double points weekend, a 20% off sale, and as of yesterday, a Limited Edition Greeting Card. And there’s still more to come — just because the month is ending doesn’t mean the celebration will! We are now happy to announce the winners of the September Garden of the Month (GOTM), give a reminder for September Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for October POTM! The badges for September GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early October, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

September GOTM

As part of this year’s “Bash from the Past” theme we released a ZeeOps Transmission icon to signify the original announcement of ZeeOps at bash years ago. Some of you may have also noticed one of the badges from this special also teases some upcoming news! You’ll have to be patient for a little bit longer to find out what that TOP SECRET scrapbook means, but in the meantime we’re celebrating all things ZeeOps. So, we HAD to pick the Berlin- Capital of Spies as the first garden!

The second garden was chosen for its cool design and incorporation of virtual types that were featured in the past Double Points weekend. 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 Berlin – Capital of spies Garden, designed by 123xilef, and the Somerville Specials Garden, designed by prmarks1391, as our winning September GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Berlin – Capital of spies by 123xilef in Berlin, Germany

This garden was absolutely perfect for this year’s bash theme!

This garden was first nominated last September, and we’re happy to have the perfect opportunity to recognize it! Of the Munzee-themed gardens, Myths and Flats are usually what players gravitate towards, so this ZeeOps garden definitely stood out!

Somerville Specials garden by prmarks1391 in Victoria, Australia

The shape of this garden is very original and eye-catching!

The contrast between the single-type gem-shaped sections and the multi-evo-type cross-shaped middle creates visual interest! This is a great example of using a variety of types without it looking too cluttered.

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.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! 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.

September POTM

September’s POTM called for capping 100 scatters! Since there’s still a bit of time left to earn this badge, here are a few reminders:

  • Scatters are the munzees that are generated after capturing a scattering munzee. For example, when you cap an Air Mystery, that triggers Feathers or Golden Feathers to appear on the map for you to capture. Feathers and Golden Feathers are scatters.
  • If you need help finding scattering munzees near you, remember that we have quite a few different types that scatter — here’s a list, with links to the corresponding Help Guide articles:

Congratulations to all who were able to meet the requirements! You can expect to see the badge in early October. If you weren’t able to meet the requirements this time, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for showing some love to scatters this month! We enjoy the variety and different functions each have in the game, and hope you do too!

October POTM Requirements

Ever have a close call capping? Get spooked by a curious stranger when deploying? We want to hear your Munzee scary stories! For October Player Of The Month we want you to send in stories about some spooky situations when playing Munzee. We always want people to be safe when playing, so hopefully we can learn some lessons from your scary stories! Please send your stories to the Google Form at this link: https://forms.gle/zLqoudpAqsgzCfyS8

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

We hope you’re excited for what October has in store!

Munzee on!

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!

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!

Get In Shape Like A Schoolkid With September 2020’s Resolution!

September is the typical back-to-school month for most kids in the US — after a month or three of summer vacation, you are forced to be whipped back into shape. Your gym or P.E. teacher may start off slow, but you can bet things will be ramping up as the weeks go by to prepare you for the yearly fitness tests!

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 September, we’re heading back to basics with sit-ups! Once believed to be the key to getting a flat-stomach or 6-pack, current fitness knowledge has come to the consensus that sit-ups will not help you make significant progress towards either of those goals — rather, diet for the former and core exercises for the latter — but it’s still a good basic ab workout. It’s definitely one that all schoolkids are forced to endure, and whether you were a pro as a kid or struggled to work those muscles, it’s a good exercise to revisit. If you notice your sit-ups aren’t as good as they used to be, slowly increase your repetitions until they are — then, continue that rep count to maintain your strength, or keep increasing to surpass your younger self!

How can I make sure I’m doing sit-ups properly?

It’s not too difficult to get into the right position — everybody knows that they need to start lying on the ground with their knees bent and feet planted. Arms can be straight out like the badge image above, cradling your head, or crossed on your torso, so that you won’t be using them to push off the ground. The main thing to watch out for, according to PureGym.com, is that you should not rely on momentum to lift you either, as your abs won’t get any exercise. This means that you should do sit-ups at a slow, even pace — not like those minute tests you had to do in gym class! If you have a hard time keeping your feet planted you can ask a buddy to hold them in place, or just wedge your feet under the sofa. Just make sure not to use your leg muscles too much now that your feet are being held down!

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
