Play a Round of Disc Golf With Robbie’s Flat Object!

In February, we introduced the first Flat Object, the Flat DHS! We loved the fun personal touch Dylan gave to his namesake game piece, and when it comes to creativity, Dylan is a hard act to follow. The rest of the MHQ staff has been using their spare moments thoughtfully designing their own Flat Object, so we hope you keep an eye out for them as they are released!

The second Flat Object is brought to you by Robbie, our indispensable Project Manager! If you’re a WallaBee player, Robbie is certainly a familiar face, but lately Robbie’s also been deeply involved in Munzee as well! For those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know him, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Robbie’s Flat Object features another outdoor hobby of his — disc golf! Whether you’re an avid disc golf player yourself or have never had the opportunity, the all new Flat Disc Golf Basket game piece should be easy to play with for all skill levels. Read on to learn more!

Flat Disc Golf Basket Details

The Flat Disc Golf Basket joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, blastable

Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own.

Deploy: 19 points

Capture: Split 90 points with a minimum of 19 Points

CapOn: Split 90 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat Disc Golf Basket munzee, turn on your “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types” filter. For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat Disc Golf Basket, which feature some Munzee-fied versions of disc golf gear. You can see the first of each below!

In-App Store Update!

Flat Rob, Flat Lou, the Flat DHS, and the Flat Disc Golf Basket are also now available for purchase in the In-App Store! The former two will cost 450 Zeds, while the latter two will cost 500 Zeds.

We hope you enjoy playing disc golf and learning a bit more about Robbie in the process! We also respectfully request that when referring to this game piece, please don’t shorten it to “Flat Basket” — Robbie thinks it makes him sound like a “basket case.” 😜

Munzee on!

#ChooseToChallenge with Fancy Flat Lou!

We couldn’t let this month pass by without showing some love to Munzee’s leading lady, Flat Lou! Real-life Lou and the other Internationelles have some exciting news coming up, so make sure to read all the way to the end of the blog!

Limited Time Scatter Details

From the period of Monday, March 8th at 12:00 MHQ through Wednesday, March 31st at 23:59 MHQ, when you capture a Fancy Flat Lou, up to 3 Water Bottles may be scattered nearby!

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

The rewards for Water Bottles are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 25 points

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

Badges

There are 2 badges available for this special period. As long as you capture a Fancy Flat Lou and a Water Bottle scatter, you’ll receive both badges!

Store Sale!

We’ve added Fancy Flat Lou back to the online store!

The only store limit will be up to one per variant per player account, meaning you can buy all three, but not more than one of each.

In other words, each player is allowed to purchase one of each Fancy Flat Lou variant per account. The sale will remain through the entire month of March!

Lou News!

Check out the Union Cycliste Internationale’s social media — you will see Lou featured in an International Women’s Day campaign!

The theme for International Women’s Day for 2021 is Choose to Challenge. The InternationElles (which Lou is the leader of) are sharing the challenges they’ve chosen. If you’re curious to find out more about these amazing ladies, keep an eye on their social media!

Munzee on!

Flat Objects: The Future of Flat Types!

Don’t get us wrong — we love all 4 of our Flat Friends! But not all of our staff members are comfortable with being flattened. To allow for expansion of the Flat type, we’ve come up with Flat Objects! Think of them as the Munzee version of totems (à la Inception) where the Flat Object is something seemingly ordinary but is near and dear to each staff members’ hearts.

The first Flat Object is brought to you by Dylan, our indispensable Creative Director! If you’ve been a Munzee player for a while now, you’ve most likely met him, or at least heard of him… but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know the man, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Dylan’s Flat Object is a throwback to simpler times, and tube TV tech! Say hello to the Flat DHS, stylized after VHS Tapes from the 80s and 90s. Dylan has a nose for nostalgia, so these tapes (and the badges associated with them) will give you an insight to some of his favorite flicks. Read on to learn more!

Flat DHS Details

The Flat DHS joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, blastable

Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own.

Deploy: 19 points

Capture: Split 94 points with a minimum of 19 Points

CapOn: Split 94 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat DHS munzee, turn on your “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types” filter. For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat DHS, which, as mentioned above, feature some Munzee-fied versions of Dylan’s favorite movies. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy collecting Flat DHS tapes and learning a bit more about Dylan in the process!

Munzee on!

Today at 10:00 MHQ, attendees were awarded 1 physical magnet and 1 virtual magnet, which will definitely be useful in attracting the NEW Rainbow Trail MOBs or testing out the NEW Elemental Magnetization feature!

To make magnets even more useful, we’ve increased their strength so that they can now attract up to 5 bouncers! This boost will be active from 12:00 MHQ today until 23:59 MHQ on March 22nd! That’s the same end time as the 2x Mystery Days bonus, so be sure to take advantage of it!

Lastly, if you are late to our Couch Potato Party, you can read more about it in yesterday’s blog post HERE!

Join In The Social DistanZEEing!

The COVID-19 situation may have all of us hunkered down at home, but why not practice social distancing in style? We’re excited to try something new here and have put together the Social DistanZEEing Global Munzee Event! 

You can join this Munzee event from anywhere in the world, but be sure to RSVP on the Munzee Calendar. Over the next couple weeks we’ll be sharing a variety of fun ways to interact, even if we can’t do it in person.

To kick off our Social DistanZEEing fun we’re starting with a FREE Eventzee Photo Scavenger Hunt!

What better way to kick off St. Patrick’s Day than with a Couch Potato Party hosted by the Eventzee team? You can check out all of the details on the Eventzee Blog, but here’s the basics. A total of 50 clues will be released over the next two weeks and you’ll have until March 31st at 10:00 MHQ to submit photos. You can earn a special badge by having one photo approved.

Just download the Eventzee app* and use the code “POTATOPARTY” to access this special hunt. The first 10 clues are all about the colors of the rainbow, and don’t be surprised if there are more colorful surprises later today!

Earn the Couch Potato Badge by having at least one photo approved!

Follow our blog and social channels to find out what’s next for our Social DistanZEEing event! We know being stuck at home can drive you crazy, but we hope to offer some fun options at home and in the real world depending on your situation. As always play your way and please use your best judgement when playing any of our games.

We look forward to fighting the cabin fever with you all!

Munzee on!

Awesome Aussie Animals Continue the Fundraising!

In our effort to raise funds for Australia Relief, we announced the creation of 3 new virtual gardens earlier in the week. The gardens sold out much faster than we had expected, which shows how ready and willing our community is to contribute to this cause! For those who were unable to purchase garden pins, we are proud to announce another opportunity for you with a new offering!

These ALL NEW Temporary Player Owned Bouncers (POBs) are adorable Aussie Animals and they’re on sale NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store! A portion of the proceeds from this sale will also be added to our Australia Relief donation, so thank you all for supporting this great cause!

Like Pouch Creatures, Aussie Animals are based on items from our sister app, WallaBee, and represent a new era of munzees to enjoy! Temporary POBs work much like regular POBs, but they’re only on the map for a limited amount of time.  There are two types of Aussie Animals, the Kangaroo and Koala, and since these munzees won’t be around forever they have a smaller purchase price of $5 each. You can also purchase up to 5 of each animal per player account!

Aussie Animals

Aussie Animals are temporary POBs that bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. They will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on April 30, when they will be automatically archived on your account. If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

  • Deploy: 126 points
  • Capture: 261 points
  • CapOn: 126 points

You can find these cute creatures bouncing to the following landing pads every 12 hours or when captured:

  • Greenies
  • Safari Bus Evolution Munzees- All Levels
    • Safari Truck (V)
    • Safari Van (V)
    • Safari Bus (V)
  • King Of The Jungle Evolution Munzees- All Levels
    • Lion Cub
    • Lion
    • King Of The Jungle
  • Water Mystery Munzees
  • Aquamarine Jewel Munzees
  • Wildlife Places Munzees (V)
  • White Virtual Munzees (V)
  • Virtual Blue tones (V)
    • VIRTUAL BLUE VIOLET MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL INDIGO MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CADET BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL PERIWINKLE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CORNFLOWER MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL BLUE GREEN MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL PACIFIC BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CERULEAN MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL ROBIN EGG BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL TURQUOISE BLUE MUNZEES
  • TREEHOUSE

Aussie Animals will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Kangaroo and Koala on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Aussie Animal visits you. However, Aussie Animals will be non-blastable. They will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on White and Blue-toned Virtual Munzees. You can access Aussie Animals under the “Only Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

All players who purchase a Kangaroo Aussie Animal or a Koala Aussie Animal will receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Aussie Animals specials. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Jumping Joeys – Capture 1 Aussie Animal Munzee of any type.

Remember these temporary POBs will only be available for capture until the end of April, so cap as many as you can and keep them bouncing!

Munzee on!

Help Our Friends Down Under With The Australia Relief Virtual Garden!

UPDATE 1/15/2020:

All the Kangaroo Garden in Adelaide, the Koala Garden in Melbourne, and the Wombat Garden in Sydney are all SOLD OUT. Thank you all for your support! 

We have also updated the donation locations to better match the areas of the gardens. The funds raised from the Melbourne Koala Garden will actually be sent to the Country Fire Authority (CFA) and the funds raised from the new Sydney Wombat Garden will be sent to the NSW Rural Fire Service. The gardens are the same size so there is no difference in donation amount assuming all are sold. Apologies for the confusion on our part!

Last week we announced some special guests were attending the upcoming Australia Day events Down Under, but we also mentioned some possible opportunities to support those affected by the wildfires. We’ve probably all watched the destruction taking place in Australia from the wildfires and we wanted to help in some way.

One virtual munzee will automatically be deployed in the Sydney Garden after it has been purchased. 30% of the proceeds from this item will support emergency relief efforts through a donation to the The NSW Rural Fire Service. To learn more about NSW RFS please visit https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/about-us.

Here is the product link to the Melbourne Aussie Garden- Sydney. *SOLD OUT*

We have launched a new Koala virtual garden dedicated to providing some relief to the affected animals and communities in and around Melbourne. 30% of the proceeds from the sales of this specific garden will be donated to the Country Fire Authority (CFA). To learn more about CFA please visit https://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/about/supporting-cfa#donate-cfa.

Here is the product link to the Melbourne Aussie Garden- Melbourne. *SOLD OUT*

Today we are launching a new Kangaroo virtual garden dedicated to providing some relief to the affected animals and communities in and around Adelaide. 30% of the proceeds from the sales of this specific garden will go to the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, located just off the coast of Adelaide. This garden is near the upcoming Australia Day events, and thankfully the hosts have informed us the area is safe from fires.

Here is the product link to the Aussie Garden- Adelaide. *SOLD OUT*

Your $1 Virtual Munzee purchase in this garden will automatically deploy a virtual for your account. Each player account is limited to 10 virtuals in each of the gardens. Please note that if you purchased the max amount of spots in one garden you can still purchase up to 10  spots in another garden as well.

Thank you for supporting both our game, and the animals in Australia. Stay tuned because we have another unique way you can help bouncing your way soon.

Meet Munzee Munzday: Sheryl

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. Today we are going to get to know Sheryl, one of the many members of the team who keeps things running smoothly! 

My husband and I in our favorite place in the Rockies

Name and Title:

Sheryl Marusic, Bookkeeper

Where are you from?

Originally from the Philadelphia side of Pennsylvania. My husband, Steve, and I moved to Texas 6 years ago due to his job transfer.

Tell us about yourself:

I am married and the mother of 5 grown children. My husband has 3 grown children. A couple of our children are married, and we have one grandchild on the way. Most of our children reside in either the Pittsburgh side of Pennsylvania or the Philadelphia side, so we travel back and forth a lot. There is one child in San Diego, CA. I worked in business before becoming a full-time mom. I then eventually became an elementary teacher in Pennsylvania. Now I’m back in the business side of Munzee as a bookkeeper. My husband and I love to travel, mostly in the USA. Our favorite thing to do is hike in the mountains, especially the Rockies. We also do marriage ministry in our church, helping couples have the best marriages possible.

With all my children and their partners/spouses

How long have your worked for Munzee?

I have worked for Munzee for 4 years. I started out in Production and was asked to implement Quickbooks, an accounting software, after a couple months of being an employee. My first degree was in accounting, so I have gone full circle in my career.

How did you find Munzee?

I came to Munzee through Cecie Newman, previous Vice-President. I knew her from our church, and she was aware that I was looking for a part-time and flexible job. After coming to Texas, I decided to retire from teaching and wanted to go part-time. An opening came up in Production, and she hired me and then later asked me to do the bookkeeping for the company. 

My husband’s children with their partners/spouses

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

What I enjoy most about Munzee is the people. Everyone on staff are great people to work with. At the MHQ bashes I get to meet some of the players too and find them to be very kind people. I also really enjoy working with numbers. They are my “therapy” in life. 😊

What are some of your other hobbies?

Some other hobbies I have are reading and watching movies. My husband loves doing the same, so we make a great team!

Famous last words?

Famous last words I will have to steal from a country song: “Always stay humble and kind.”

Stay tuned to get to know more members of the team!

Another shot of us in our favorite place in the Rockies
