Announcing More Nomad Munzees!

Who said we had to wait until our Birthday to release some surprises? We’re excited to announce we have increased the number of Nomads bouncing across the world!

There are now 20 of each of the ever-elusive Nomad Munzee types.

These types include:

We also have another substantial update for the Nomads… you will now be able to cap them on your own Munzees! This has been a long requested feature, so hopefully this will increase your chance of finding one of these roaming rarities.

Remember that you can also earn badges for capturing Nomad Munzees, so always be on the lookout.

Remember your can see where the Nomads’ latest stop is on www.munzee.com/specials. Good luck on your quest to find all of the Nomads and Munzee on!

Freeze Tag HQ Birthday Event July 21 and New Emerald Garden!

Munzeers of the world,

Step right up and join the first official Munzee Birthday party supported at, near, and around Freeze Tag HeadQuarters in sunny Southern California. If you are able to join us in person we have quite a treat for you! Be sure to log your “Will Attend” on the calendar so we can be prepared for the crowds! We have several great things in store for you, and more still in the works!

  • Unique badge available only at this event!
  • Unique WallaBee item in game and physical stickers for your WallaBee Passport
  • FREE Sample ZeeTour available around the Irvine Regional Park
  • Eventzee Scavenger Hunt
  • Prizes, Snacks, and *ZOO animals
  • MHQ and FTHQ staff and the badges you get for meeting them in person!

If you aren’t able to join us in Irvine Regional Park it’s OK because we have opportunities for you as well. First we’ve created a spreadsheet to help build a virtual garden on site! If you have any spare MVM in your undeployed list please join us! If you have other types of virtuals and want to accumulate some cap on points, or just give players something more to cap, you can deploy nearby as well!

And finally, we want there to be plenty of opportunities for points so we’d like to welcome you to purchase an emerald in the brand new FTHQ emerald garden. Be sure to choose FTHQ Emerald in the drop down option! There is a limited quantity of these emeralds (one per account) and the office is less than 10 miles from the birthday event location. While there currently aren’t tours of the FTHQ office it is growing in popularity for deploys and you never know what the future holds!

We hope you choose to join us in person, or in virtual participation as we celebrate Munzee’s birthday for the first time at FTHQ!

Munzee On!

*Zoo animals are inside the OC Zoo and not actually part of the Munzee event but you get the picture 😉 In other words, you have to pay and visit the zoo to actually see zoo animals. It’s only $2 and Craig says it’s great! We’re not certified monkey (or lion) tamers, we only play them on Youtube.

New Towel Day Badges!

DON’T PANIC… It’s Towel Day!

Now as some of you may have noticed, there has been an error with the badge image for this event. The dreaded Error 42 screen has popped up on screens across the world. Well luckily just in time for the official Towel Day on May 25th, our developers have fixed the issue! Turns out someone gave them the wrong file. Simple mistake obviously.

So starting NOW you’ll notice that the Error 42 badge has been replaced with new artwork from guest artist Andy Cameron of WallaBee fame! We can’t take all the credit for this badge though. Well, we could, but that wouldn’t be very cool of us.

A huge thank you to Cleo Nordquist (QueenofDNile) for sharing her Towel Day WallaBee Unique concept with us!

Don’t Panic- Capture one Towel Day Special.

We’re also excited to offer a new challenge for the weekend! We’ve released a new badge for capturing 42 Towel Day Specials. Why 42? Well it’s the Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe and Everything, of course. What was the Ultimate Question to Life, The Universe and Everything? Well that’s a question for another time.

The Answer To Life– Capture 42 Towel Day Specials.

These badges are retroactive, so if you’ve already captured 1-42 Towel Day Specials you will have earned both badges. Also please note that both the Towel Day Specials and the Hitchhiker Special scatters will count toward the badge.

Remember that 1,979 Munzee Towel Day Specials will be on the map until May 27th at 23:59, so be sure to cap as many as you can this weekend.

Good luck on your intergalactic journeys this weekend and Munzee on!

Expanded Prize Wheel Badges!

Step on up and try your luck! We’ve added new levels to our line of Prize Wheel Capture Badges!

Admittedly the first line of Prize Wheel badges were maybe a bit TOO easy to beat so we’ve stepped up the requirements for these new ones substantially! These badges continue to show off some of the prizes you might get playing carnival games.

New Prize Wheel badges are now live to earn and they are retroactive. Help out your fellow players and deploy a few Prize Wheels too! We’ve put Prize Wheel 5 packs back on sale for $17.50 (regularly $25). These will be on sale until Monday at 10:00 MHQ time, so don’t waste any time.

Good luck and spin away! Munzee on!

McKinney, TX: July 14, 2018- LEARN MORE!
Tustin, CA: July 21, 2018- LEARN MORE!

We’re sponsoring two grand scale birthday events as well:

We will also be opening it up to you, our lovely players, to celebrate worldwide throughout the whole of July and it’s a circus theme!

Towel Day 2018 Specials

DON’T PANIC.

We’ve got a new special in celebration of the fandom holiday Towel Day! On May 25th each year fans of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy” series carry towels in remembrance of author Douglas Adam’s work. Why towels you may ask? Well in Adam’s own words “A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value… More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value.”

Since we like to celebrate things a bit early, starting May 18th at 00:01 MHQ time 1,979 Munzee Towel Day Specials will be on the map until May 27th at 23:59 on . These specials will bounce on greenies every six hours or when capped. As we all know, a towel with a “Thumbs Up” is the universal symbol for intergalactic hitchhikers, so when you cap a Munzee Towel Special three Hitchhiker Specials will be scattered to greenies within a 1/2 mile for 2 hours or when capped. Better pick up those hitchhikers before somebody like a Vogon or a pair of mice does. That would be unfortunate.

Points: 

Towel Day Special:
Capture/Cap-On: Split of 42 with minimum of 5.

Hitchhiker Special:

Capture: 21
Cap-On: 21

You’ll earn a badge for capturing one of the Towel Day Specials, but we’re going to keep the artwork a surprise because it’s THAT COOL. How cool? So cool that it will definitely live up to the hype. What could possibly go wrong with hyping up artwork that has certainly already been completed?

Towel Day Specials will be attracted to Munzee Magnets so be sure to stock up on those in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

You CAN capture these specials on your own greenies and both Specials will count toward the Specials Hunter badges as well.

Good luck on your travels and remember to bring a towel. #MunzeeOn #TowelDay2018

Announcing Rock, Paper, Scissors Badges!

Rock. Paper. Scissors. SHOOT!

We’re excited to announce a new line of badges for capturing and deploying Rock, Paper, Scissors Munzees! As part of the gaming line, RPS Munzees actually include a mini game of Rock, Paper, Scissors which you can earn more points for winning. Since this is such a unique type of Munzee there’s a special third line of badges for winning games of RPS too!

We’ll just show the first of each badge line for now, but you can probably guess the themes for each:

Capture:

Paper Boy- Capture 10 Rock Paper Scissors Munzees

Deploy:

Rock vs Scissors- Deploy 1 Rock Paper Scissors Munzee

Winning:

Bronze Paper- Win 1 game of Rock Paper Scissors.

These badges won’t be easy to come by, but they are retroactive, so your past captures, deploys and wins will count toward these. The badges are now live and available to earn.

Help out your fellow players by deploying RPS stickers as well! For a limited time you can purchase 5 RPS Munzees for $3.50 (regularly $5) in the Munzee Online Store.

You can also pick up another gaming munzee on sale too. For a limited time Prize Wheel 5 packs are on sale for $17.50 (regularly $25). These are great if you still need to earn the Prize Wheels badges. Who knows, maybe that badge line will be extended in the future too…

The sale will run until Monday at 10:00 MHQ time, so get rocking n’ rolling!

Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Announcing Greenie Capture Badges!

We’re continuing this Spring’s theme of going green! We’re excited to announce new badges for capturing good ole’ greenies. Despite being the cornerstone of the game, this is actually the first line of badges we have released for strictly capturing Generic Munzees (AKA Greenies). How crazy is that? Better late than never right?

Green Gamer Lv 1- Capture 100 Generic Munzees AKA Greenies.

This new line of badges is retroactive, so those of you who have been capping these stickers for the better part of a decade can bask in the glory. You’ll only be able to see the requirements of one badge at a time until you earn it, but we think some of the more experienced players will be pleasantly surprised at the challenges this presents. The badges are now live and available to earn.

Please note that capturing Recycle Munzees will not count toward these badges, only active Greenies.

With these new Greenie capture badges, a new update, a new scanner and some (old) stickers on sale, help out your fellow players and deploy some Greenies too!

Good luck in your adventures and Munzee on!

Updated Recycle Badges!

Just in time for this month’s Clan Wars, we’re excited to announce new badges for Capturing Recycle Munzees!

This is an extension of the current Recycle line, which includes badges for capturing 1, 50, and 100 Recycle Icons. We are adding badges for capturing 500, 1,000, 2,500, and 5,000 Recycle Icons, which will be available starting at 00:01 MHQ time on April 3rd.

These badges ARE retroactive, but will be hidden until you earn them.

As a quick reminder, Recycle Icons appear on certain munzees that haven’t been capped in 365 days. This is a “one and done” special icon. Once the icon is capped, the Munzee returns to its normal icon. In other words this is a race for you to be first in your area to get to the icon. You CAN capture this icon on munzees that you have capped before. You CANNOT capture this icon on your own munzees. The affected munzees are:

  • Greenies
  • All Physical Jewels
  • All Physical Clan Weapons
  • Physical Mysteries
  • Premium Munzees

Recycle Icons will be on the map from 00:01 MHQ Time on Tuesday, April 3rd through 23:59 MHQ time on Monday, April 30th.

Good luck, grow the map and go green!
