Gallop away with Flat Hammock!

The Flat Friends are about to make a new pal! Flat Rob, Flat Matt, and Flat Lou will have to watch their gameplay, because the ban hammer is knocking- welcome the all new Flat Hammock!

This new game piece is based on the one-man wrecking crew Daniel Hammock, who has been running Munzee Support for 5 years. No one at MHQ can think of a time when they’ve actually called him Daniel, or Danny as his family calls him. He’s always affectionately been known as Hammock. Although he started off as a player, in Hammock’s own words, his “dream came true” when he was given “the opportunity of a lifetime” to work for Munzee. Even before officially joining MHQ, Hammock always took it upon himself to help out the Munzee community with any and all issues that would arise. He is best known within the community for swinging the ban hammer, punishing all those who break the code of conduct. To those who know him well he’s a fluffy unicorn of a guy who is very kind and giving. In his free time he enjoys taking his family out for crazy Youtube adventures for the Munzee Monthly Giveaway and giving away prizes each month for players to enjoy. He’s also an avid fan of unicorns, if the Flat Hammock design didn’t make that very apparent.

The first Flat Hammock has been released as a permanent special in Gettysburg, PA. Players will normally be able to purchase their own Flat Hammocks in the Freeze Tag Online Store for $4. In celebration of our new Flat Friend though all Flat Munzees will be discounted! Remember that Flat Friends are not always on sale, so stock up while you can!

The Flat Friends Sale will last until Friday at 15:00 MHQ:

  • Hammock: $3.75- originally $4
  • Rob: $3.75- originally $4
  • Louise: $4 (with $0.25 still going to charity)- originally $4.25
  • Matt: $4.75- originally $5

Players with a Premium Membership will also receive one free Flat Hammock as well.

Like the other Flat Friends, Flat Hammock has a unique release schedule. Hammock may love working for Munzee, but he keeps busy with a variety of other jobs as well. Like other Flats he will choose when Flat Hammocks are available on the map, which will be during his working hours, major event seasons and more. Please note that all scheduled times are based on MHQ time and are subject to change. Since we’re in the middle of Halloween events though, all Flat Friends are on the map until the end of the month and Flat Hammock will join in the fun too!

Here is the general breakdown of Flat Hammocks:

Points:

Deploy – 19 Points
Cap/CapOn – Split 80 points with a minimum of 10 points.

Proximity: 

Flat Hammocks’ proximity is not affected by other munzees except other Flats. Flat Hammocks must be 50ft from other players’ deploys and 150ft from your own deploys.

You’ll also be able to earn a variety of badges for capturing and deploying Flat Hammocks.

Deploy Badges:

Capture Badges:

Don’t forget about DOUBLE POINT FLAT FRIENDS WEEKEND! On Friday we challenged our players to attend events and capture event pins, and they successfully completed the challenge! There will be double points on all Flat Friends captures and deploys beginning October 26 at 00:01 until October 28 at 23:59. That’s MH-BOO Bash weekend too, so if you’re looking for somewhere to deploy why not check out McKinney, TX! The calendar is also full of events all month long!

Thank you all for your support of the Support Man himself. Our Flat Friends line of munzees would not be possible without the enthusiasm of our players. Of course a huge THANK YOU to Hammock for his dedication to this game. So beware the ban hammer, hug Hammock when you meet him and Munzee On!

Talk Like A Pirate Day Specials And More!

ARGHHHHHH! Wednesday September 19th be “Talk Like A Pirate Day” and ye better be ready to walk the plank!

Come Sail Away:

We’re excited to announce that from 00:01 MHQ on September 17 until 23:59 MHQ September 23 Pirate Ship specials will be sailing across the map!

In case you didn’t know, the current version of the Munzee app has the ability to set your in-app language to Pirate. This fun feature unfortunately will be walking the plank in version 4.0 though so we wanted to send it off in style.

500 Cargo Ship specials will bounce on Greenies every 6 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.

500 Treasure Ship specials will bounce on RUMs, Premium, and Physical Jewel Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. These will NOT be attracted to magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.

500 Ghost Ship virtual specials will bounce on MVMs, Emerald, and Amethyst Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Munzee Magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.

Ye landlubbers want badges, aye?! Well the west wind seems to be blowing your way!

There are a variety of badges you can earn for capturing Talk Like A Pirate Day Specials and these will also count toward the Specials Badges. There are a total of six badges you can earn throughout the allotted Specials timeframe. We’ll show you the three for capping each of the different Special types, but you’ll have to discover the other three* yourselves!

Brilliant Booty:

If it’s treasure ye want, you don’t need a map to find it!

The Freeze Tag Online Store has a Pirate Pack for luring out stranded sailors as well as a new Pirate Personal Tag too. Per usual these are in limited quantity so get yours before they run out! Read the details on the Pirate Pak to find out how to get a free diamond credit when you use “WalkThePlank” as a discount code!

In order to help ye quest for these Pirate pins, we are also changing up how you can purchase Munzee Magnets. A Magnet reset will take place Monday at 10:00 MHQ and moving forward players will be able to purchase up to 10 Magnets every 10 days. This will count for both Physical and Virtual Magnets, and it doesn’t matter when the last time you bought Magnets is; the reset will wipe your record clean as of Monday.

All Hands On Deck:

In order to up the ante for our worldwide crew of Pirates, we’re also excited to introduce two community challenges!

First, if our worldwide community is able to capture a collective 1,500 Pirate Ship specials of all three kinds, collectively, in the first 48 hours of setting sail, we will release a new Mythological Munzee next week! To sweeten the pot, the first 1,500 Pirate Ship special captures will be entered into a drawing to win one of the new Myths for FREE.

Second, if the community can capture a total of 15,000 Pirate Ship specials before they leave the map, you’ll unlock double points on Flats for a weekend in October! We won’t spill the beans on when exactly that is just yet, but it’s sure to be a scary good time. For reference, just over 13,000 bacon specials were captured in our most recent special icon fun! Everyone will have to work together to earn this special reward!

The Pirate’s Code:

Avast me hearties, set the sails, prepare the compasses, and sharpen ye swords! In less than half a fortnight our hunt for treasure begins! Yo ho, Yo ho, it’s a Pirate’s life for Zee!

*If ye read all the way to the end of the blog, we’ll give ye a hint on a badge. It’s said the key to unlocking Jewel-Eyed-Johnny’s hidden treasure is in the eye of the zee-holder!

LegaZeeOps- Operation: Star Seeker

Agents, ZeeOps HQ’s system has been hacked and all of our files on past missions have been erased! You’ll have to recreate past Operations in what we’re calling LegaZeeOps. It’s up to you to keep the legacy of this organization in tact. The missions for this month are the same that were previously available in February 2018’s Operations.

Agents, more and more Zodiac symbols are showing up across the world. Although the motive matches the Zodiac Vigilante, something seems different about these. The secret organization The Rising Sons are also looking for the Zodiac Vigilante, which makes finding him even more important.

Although the masked man is prophesied to be the group’s leader he has shirked his destiny- something the Sons are none too pleased about. It’s imperative we reach the Vigilante before they do. By capturing and deploying Zodiac Munzees we are confident that we can study his deployment patterns and can triangulate his location.

September 2018 ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Freeze Tag Online Store. 

Since the focus of this month’s Operations is so celestial you’ll want to stock up on Zodiac stickers and credits.

By completing any Operation this month you’ll earn the new* “LegaZeeOps- Operation: Star Seeker” badge.

*Due to requests from the community all LegaZeeOps badges will now be different from the badge earned during the initial run of the month’s Operations. So players who earned the “Operation: Star Seeker” badge in February 2018 can earn also earn the “LegaZeeOps- Operation: Star Seeker” badge as well by completing a September 2018 Operation. All players who completed an Operation last month (August 2018) will also be retroactively awarded the “LegaZeeOpps- Operation: Evolution” badge as well.

This month’s Missions are as follows:

LEVEL 1:
Basic Training + – Earn at least 1,000 points.
Defensive Training– Deploy at least 10 munzees.
Offensive Training– Capture at least 25 munzees.

Wow, thank you all for keeping me on my toes in July – if I wasn’t cycling up mountains I was busy working on all your events!
