One small leap for man, one giant leap for Munz kind!
50 years ago today the Apollo 11 space mission blasted off! Over the next few days history was made and mankind took its first steps on the moon. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing we have a new BLAST Off Personal Tag featuring artwork from our Flat Flyby Friends specials! These limited edition tags will only be available from now until July 24 at 23:59 MHQ.
To celebrate the blast off we also have a special offer! With each BLAST Off Personal Tag purchase you’ll also receive a FREE Blast Capture as well!
Like the Blast From The Past tags, in order to get the FREE Blast Cap you’ll need to add both the “BLAST Off” personal tag and a Blast Capture to your cart. No discount code is needed, but the discount will NOT be automatically added unless both items are in the cart. If you plan on buying more than one BLAST Off tag and want more free Blast Caps you will need add more to your cart for each tag purchase. Please note that this promo is only applicable to the BLAST Off tag.

We hope you’ve all enjoyed our GR8 8th Birthday month so far! We know it’s been a busy one so we hope you’re keeping busy chasing Magic 8 Balls, Flat Astronauts, and more!
July 16-24 marks a historical period in time, as it is the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, the first manned mission to land on the Moon. To commemorate this critical moment in human history, Virtual Flat Shuttles will begin bouncing on Tuesday, July 16 at 00:01 MHQ time all the way until Wednesday, July 31 at 23:59 MHQ time!
Flat Shuttle Specials
Starting tomorrow, you will have the rest of the month to enjoy these brand new Flat Shuttle specials. The Flat Shuttle icons will bounce to the Flat Friends Munzees and regular Virtual Munzees every 6 hours or when capped and scatter our Flat Flyby Friends to Greenies. Flat Flyby Friends will scatter to Greenies within 1,000 ft of the initial virtual Flat Shuttle capture. 500 of these virtual specials will be bouncing around the map, and they will not be blastable.
Each time a Flat Shuttle special is captured, one of each of the four Flat Flyby Friends —Flat Flyby Rob, Matt, Lou, and Hammock— will be scattered to a nearby Greenie for 6 hours or when capped. The Flat Flyby Friends will all be worth the same point values.
You can access these specials by turning on your All Expiring Specials and All Limited Edition Specials filters.
Capturing these specials will count towards Specials capture badges. They will also have their own line of badges for players to enjoy! There will be two capture badges to earn, for capturing any Flat Shuttle special and for capturing one of each of the Flat Flyby specials. The badges will appear as follows:
Takeoff- Capture at least one Flat Shuttle special
First Friends- Capture at least one of each Flat Flyby Friends special
And that’s not all of the exciting news!
8 Mates Special
When the Shuttle Specials go live, we will also have eight “M8s” (pronounced “Mates”) enter the map as well! These physical bouncers will bounce to Greenies every 8 hours or until captured. They will remain on the map for the same duration as the Shuttle Specials, from July 16 at 00:01 MHQ time until July 31 at 23:59 MHQ time.
Ready to hear about the points?! Yes, you read the blog’s title correctly! This rare special will be worth a whopping points value, because birthday month really has us celebr8ing!
You can access this very exciting special by turning on your All Expiring Specials and All Limited Edition Specials filters. Captures on the 8 Mates specials will count towards Specials Capture badges, as well as their own badge line. The 8 Mates specials will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets.
8 Mates Badges
There will be two badges to earn for capturing the 8 Mates specials based on number of captures. There are very few of the these specials bouncing around, so you’ll have to get really lucky if you want both! The badges will appear as follows:
M8s- Capture at least one 8 Mate special
GR8 M8s- Capture at least eight 8 Mate specials
We told you that July would be a GR8 month! Don’t forget that Magic 8 Ball munzees are still bouncing around until the end of the month as well, so there are TONs of specials to try for! Is this the most extravagant 8th birthday celebration that you’ve ever been a part of!? An entire month of fun, celebrations, and specials!
Do you have a burning question that you’re dying to have answered!? Can’t decide on whether or not to get a haircut or runaway to Tahiti? Well the Magic 8 Ball Munzee specials will be here tomorrow at 00:01 MHQ time to grant your questions a Munzee-fied response (as well as points and badges)! (Note: Freeze Tag is not liable for any real world player decisions made based off Magic 8 Ball Munzee answers 😉.)
Our Magic 8 Ball specials will launch at 00:01 MHQ time on July 3, with 888 hitting the map until 23:59 MHQ time on July 31! Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, there are a possibility of 8 different icons revealed after this special is captured. Each icon will correspond with a different saying that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Gleaming Pouch Creatures work. They will bounce around every 6 hours or when capped.
Dying to know what capture messages could be in store for you? We’ll give you a sneak peak, but you’re going to have to get busy capping to discover the other 7 options:
Capture: 88 points
CapOn: 19 points
These Virtual Munzees will not be blastable. They will bounce to all virtual colors and be attracted to Virtual Magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Magic 8 Ball specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.
Badges & Personals
There is also a line featuring —you guessed it!— 8 new badges to earn based off number of captures of Magic 8 Ball specials. The first badge in the series appears as follows:
Magic 8 Ball– Capture 1 Magic 8 Ball special of any type.
The other seven badges may not be as easy to figure out as you think, so keep capping all month long to figure out the rest! Finally, we are happy to offer a fun collection of Magic 8 Ball Personal Tags available for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting tomorrow at 10:00 MHQ time! Here is a sneak peak:
There will be 8 different Magic 8 Ball Personal Tag responses. Players can either purchase an individual tag for $8 to receive a surprise saying or purchase the full set of 8 for $48. You can shop the Personal Tags HERE!
This special, of course, is brought to you by Munzee’s 8th birthday! This is a month for celebration as we live it up in the #8zees!
We have a special announcement for MunzPak subscribers, as the July MunzPak will feature the brand new Joystick Munzees! This MunzPak exclusive will be available in some version in all three MunzPak subscriptions, which you can order in the Freeze Tag Online Store beginning on July 1 at 00:01 MHQ time. (Remember if you order a MunzPak before then, you will be ordering the June one!) Now let’s see why these brand new munzees have us jumping for joy…
This new munzee type is based on throwback video game specials from over the years. Joystick Munzees come in both physical and virtual forms, though both forms work similarly and are worth the same point values. When you capture a Joystick Munzee, three of one retro game icon (either Runzee Rob, Leap Frog, or Munch-Man) will scatter to Greenies within 1500 feet. These munzees will stay on the map for 3 hours or when captured.
The point values for the Joystick Munzees are as follows:
Virtual Joystick Munzees are not blastable. To access these munzees, turn on the Mini Games physical filter and the Others virtual filter. You can access the scatters under the Expiring Specials filter. Their proximity will be 150 feet from any other virtual Joystick if deploying a virtual, or 150 feet from any other physical Joystick if deploying a physical.
Capping a Joystick Munzee will cause three Runzee Rob, Leap Frog, or Munch-Man physical munzees to scatter to Greenies within 1500 feet. These retro games have an added layer of fun all of their own! Once the retro game icon is capped between 1 and 3 new virtuals will be deployed within 700 feet of the retro game icon. These virtuals will be different based on what game icon is capped.
You have to be within 150 ft to capture the various game virtuals, and these can only be seen by the person who capped the retro game icon, similar to Infrared Munzees. Retro game virtuals will disappear after 2 hours or when capped. You can learn more about the three retro games and their unique virtuals below!
Runzee Rob Munzee
When you cap a Runzee Rob, up to three (1-3 random) new virtual “Gold Coinz” will be deployed nearby, similar to an Air Mystery/Feather or Night Vision Goggles/Infrared Munzee. These Gold Coinz will only be visible to the player that capped the Runzee Rob and are available for 2 hours.
Cap: 19-85 split with owner
CapOn: remainder of the 19-85 split
Gold Coin virtuals
Cap: 25 points (no CapOn)
When you cap a Leap Frog, up to three (1-3 random) new virtual “Flyz” will be deployed similar to an Air Mystery/Feather or Night Vision Goggles/Infrared Munzee. These Flyz will only be visible to the player that capped the Leap Frog and are available for 2 hours.
Cap: 19-81 split with owner
CapOn: remainder of the 19-81 split
Cap: 29 points (no CapOn)
When you cap a Munch-Man, up to three (1-3 random) new virtual “Ghostzees” will be deployed similar to an Air Mystery/Feather or Night Vision Goggles/Infrared Munzee. These Ghostzees will only be visible to the player that capped the Munch-Man and are available for 2 hours.
Cap: 19-80 split with owner (Pac-Man was released in 1980)
CapOn: remainder of the 19-80 split
Cap: 34 points (no CapOn)
A game within a game within a game! If these Joystick Munzees weren’t already exciting enough, there will also be badges! You can earn the following badge by deploying any Joystick Munzee:
Joystick 8500- Deploy 1 Joystick Munzee of any type.
There are also badges to earn for capturing each of the 3 retro games. The badges appear as follows:
Runzee! (1985)- Capture 1 Runzee Rob Munzee
Leap Frog (1981)- Capture 1 Leap Frog Munzee
Munzee Munch (1980)- Capture 1 Munch-Man Munzee
Stay tuned to see if we expand this line of badges in the future, because though we might know the past, who knows what’s in store in time to come! Are you ready to get retro?! Be sure to subscribe to the July MunzPak to receive your Joystick Munzees for the chance to join in on the fun!
Update: The blog has been updated on 6/28/19 to reflect the addition of the virtual Krampus Faun Myth Variant.
Whether you’re soaring into summer or experiencing the winter chill, our brand new Mythological Munzee Variants are here to season your map! Starting at 15:00 MHQ time today, you’ll be able to upgrade both the Pegasus and Faun Mythological Munzees into four new variants! We’ve also restocked certain Player Owned Bouncers in the Freeze Tag Store so click HERE to get yours!
Much like AlternaMyths, the Mythological Munzee Variants are twists on the original Myth types that allow them to bounce to other types of munzees. These variants are only available to Myths that have been “Upgraded.*” You can shop our restocked Mythologicals in the Freeze Tag Online Store for a limited time only. We’ll also be adding Pouch Creatures to the store, but they won’t be around for long! Click the link HERE to pick yours up before they’re gone, and be sure to get your Bouncer Upgrade Credit!
All four of our new variants will have the same point values:
Capture: 200 Points
CapOn: 100 Points
Lastly, before we dive into the new variant details, the Pegasus Myth will also be getting a point increase effective now! The Pegasus Myth will now be worth the regular 200 points for a Myth when captured, as well as 250 deploy points! Now on to the new variants…
This amalgamation of an Eagle and a Lion soars majestically! This variant of the Pegasus Mythological Munzee flies to the following:
Once your Myth is upgraded with the Bouncer Upgrade Credit, you can convert it to a new type similar to how you would convert any other type of munzee. Remember that you can only convert a Myth Variant once, and after a Myth has been changed, it cannot go back. Previously known as the Myth Upgrade, the Bouncer Upgrade Credit also allows for the opportunity to “nudge” your Myth to a new munzee up to three times a day in the MHQ 24-hour day after it has sat for three hours. Plus it gives you the opportunity to rename your Myth to something personal and creative!
Points for Variant Myths will remain the same. Variant Myths will also continue counting toward their specific Myth badges just like normal. The only thing that changes with an Upgrade is what it bounces to, as well as a new capture icon in the Specials list.
The new Pegasus and Faun variants join the Unicorn, Fairy, Leprechaun, Mermaid, Dragon, and Yeti Myth Variants. Which variants do you hope to see next? And which variant will you be upgrading to today? Let us know on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
*The Fairy and Mermaid Mythological Munzee Variants do not require a Bouncer Upgrade Credit to be upgraded.
It’s officially the first day of summer on the Northern Hemisphere, something that we can certainly feel here at MHQ! 🥵 (Meanwhile, our friends on the Southern Hemisphere are well into winter!) To kick off the season of sunshine and celebrate our recent map split and leaderboard updates, we’re happy to offer a weekend of sales starting today at 15:00 MHQ time!
The Play Your Way Summer Sale will be available in the Freeze Tag Online Store until 10:00 MHQ time on Monday. This seasonal sale will include the following hot offers:
You can shop the entire Play Your Way Summer Sale HERE!
In addition, we will be offering the following automatic discount: buy one Virtual Munzee, get one Color Credit for FREE! Please note in order to receive this discount, both items must be in the cart. This offer does not apply to the 5 pack of Virtual Munzees.
We hope this sale helps you ring in summer! (Or warm up the winter!)
For too long now Flat Rob has had all the fun, galavanting around in his tuxedo, chilling on the beach, and traveling snowy terrains. It’s about time that Flat Matt got a wardrobe change of his own! But while Fancy Rob just wants to travel, Fancy Matt has a different agenda on his plate. Now introducing the Fancy Flat Matt variants, representing some of Matt’s favorite sports!
Set your timers, because the Fancy Flat Matts will be going on sale on June 20 at 15:00 MHQ time in the Freeze Tag Online Store! These Player Owned Bouncers (POBs) are variants of Flat Matt that players can own.
Like the Fancy Flat Robs, the new Fancy Flat Matts will bounce around every 12 hours or when captured. Fancy Flat Matts will bounce to Flat Matts, Red Colored Virtuals* (specified below), and an additional other type based on the variant!
All Fancy Flat Matts will have the same point values, though there will be a random distribution of Cap and CapOn points.
Deploy: 500 points
Capture: 200-300 points (random)
CapOn: 50-100 points (random)
The Fancy Flat Matts WILL be attracted to Virtual Magnets if they are used on one of the Red Color Virtuals. They will also be equipped with the ability to be nudged. You can capture Fancy Flat Matts on your own munzees or previously captured munzees, but they will NOT be blastable. Now let’s get to know a little bit more about each variant!
Matt’er Up Flat Matt
Flat Matt is ready to knock it out of the park! This variant of Fancy Flat Matt bounces to Flat Matts, Diamond Munzees, Sports Stadium Places Munzees, and select Red Colored Virtuals.
Face-Off Flat Matt
Flat Matt is ready to take the ice! This variant of Fancy Flat Matt bounces to Flat Matts, Ice Mystery Munzees, Sports Stadium Places Munzees, and select Red Colored Virtuals.
Footy Flat Matt
Flat Matt is ready to score on a set piece! This variant of Fancy Flat Matt bounces to Flat Matts, Earth Mystery Munzees, Sports Stadium Places Munzees, and select Red Colored Virtuals.
The store sale will begin tomorrow (June 20) at 15:00 MHQ time for 24 hours only. When a player goes to the online store, they will be able to choose between the three Fancy Flat Matt options:
Matt’er Up Flat Matt
Face-Off Flat Matt
Footy Flat Matt
Choose wisely, because each player will only be able to buy one of the three options! To repeat, each player will one be able to buy one variant style of Fancy Flat Matt, with purchases limited to one per player no matter which variant you choose. Each Flat Matt variant will cost $20, on sale for the full 24 hours so there is no rush to be online at the exact time. You will only be able to purchase the Fancy Flat Friends for 24 hours.
We say “Fancy Flat Friends,” because the Fancy Flat Matt Variants will be joined by the original Fancy Flat Friend, the Fancy Flat Rob variants! That’s right, you’ll also have 24 hours to shop Beach Flat Rob, Cold Flat Rob, or Tux Flat Rob!
The Fancy Flat Rob variants are available for purchase for players who do not already own a Fancy Flat Rob variant. Like the Fancy Flat Matt variants, each player is only allowed to purchase one Flat Friends variant per friend. That means you are free to purchase one Fancy Flat Matt and one Fancy Flat Rob of your choosing!
The Fancy Flat Matt variants will NOT count towards the other Flat Matt Capture or Deploy badges. Instead, Fancy Flat Matts will have their own Deploy badge that can be earned by deploying any Fancy Flat Matt variant. The badge will appear as follows:
Flat Fashion– Deploy a Fancy Flat Matt variant
Are you leaning towards Matt’er Up, Face-Off, or Footy?! Luckily you have 24 hours to decide!

Get ready to sharpen your swords, dust off your jousting lance, and summon your squire, because the theme for MHQ Bash 6 will be MedZEEval Times! The 6th Annual MHQ Bash will be held from Friday, September 27 through Sunday, September 29.
What exactly will MedZEEval Times entail? We promise, this will be a weekend of victory that you won’t soon forget! Today we are excited to reveal the package dates and options. This year we will be offering two package choices, as well as the opportunity for two additional add-ons. The package options are as follows:
Medieval Times dinner and show add-on with unique icon/badge only for attendees
*When choosing Between MedZEEval Times packages… UPDATE: Shirt size is not selected at this time. Sorry for the confusion. We will send out a survey for shirt size when sales conclude. ** Blast Caps and Magnets for this package will be awarded when you check-in to MHQ Bash in September.
You can shop the complete MedZEEval Times package options HERE!
While we’re not ready to reveal all of the weekend details just yet, we would like to share what the Medieval Times dinner and show add-on will entail if you purchase A Night With Knights. Medieval Times provides the ultimate medieval immersion experience. This family-friendly dinner attraction draws inspiration from medieval tournaments and feasts. Guests enjoy a four-course meal (vegetarian options available) and are able to cheer for one of six competing knights as they engage in a tournament of jousting and fun.
The four-course meal will be included in the package, and it will consist of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roast chicken, buttered sweet corn, seasoned potatoes, dessert, coffee, and two non-alcoholic beverages. There will also be a full-service bar, gift shop, and Hall of Arts. And of course, in custom with medieval traditions, you will have to eat with your hands!
Families, please keep in mind that every person joining us this night will need to purchase the A Night With Knights add-on for each person who wishes to attend regardless of whether or not Munzee accounts are joined. Though Medieval Times tickets are more affordable for children if purchased directly from the website, we will not be able to guarantee that anyone will be able to sit with the group unless they order through our packages.
More information regarding complete event schedules will be released soon, but the format will be similar to previous years. There will be activities during registration Friday evening, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon (WallaBash), Saturday evening (public event separate from ANWK), and Sunday morning. There will also be a wide variety of specials and badges to earn at each event, not to mention all of the munzees to capture in the McKinney area! For more information about WallaBash, be sure to check out the WallaBee Blog in the coming days!
We can’t wait to ride gallantly into the night atop a golden unicorn with you this fall! Okay, it might not be THAT awesome, but MedZEEval Times will still be pretty great! Stay tuned for more information!
***Please note that food orders will only be included for the “A Night With Knights” package add-on, but there will be opportunities to eat during some of the events.***
***To guarantee availability of all items in packages, online registration will close on August 23, 2019 at 15:00 MHQ time. Packages will be available for purchase at the event, but we cannot guarantee all items will be available.***
***Please purchase only one package per person who will be attending. Everyone must have at least the free package. If you have a joint account, please purchase a package for each person (they do not have to be the same package).***
