Meet Munzee Munzday: Hammock

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. Would you like to learn more about the unicorn loving man with the ban hammer?! Here’s some information you might not have known about Hammock! 

3D Flat Hammock

Name and Title:

Daniel Hammock, Player Support for Munzee (HKSFarm)

Where are you from?

Born in Baltimore, MD; Currently living in Littlestown, PA

Tell us about yourself:

The man with the ban

My name is Daniel Hammock, a.k.a. “The Ban Hammer Wielding Unicorn Lover.” I work part time for Munzee and full time at Domino Sugar as an operator 1, but sometimes it feels like it is the other way around. Ha! I’m 39 years old. I am married to Nikki and have 3 kids, 2 boys (DJ and Austin) and 1 girl (Kaci). I run the Monthly Munzee Giveaway, approve Places Munzees, give out WallaBee birthday cakes, and punish all that dare to cheat in Munzee with the BAN HAMMER.

How long have your worked for Munzee?

I started working for Munzee when Rob finally got tired of me begging to help out and he finally let me help with support tickets. I have been doing that ever since 2014.

From Left to Right: Myself, Nikki, Kaci, DJ, Austin

How did you find Munzee?

I first found Munzee looking for alternate ‘caching apps. When I downloaded it and tried it, there were very few Munzees for me to find. So I didn’t really play much at first until a while later when my friends CodyHollowFarm and DudleyGrunt told me that they were playing it. So I got back into it and have been hooked ever since!

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

I love the community of players we have. It is like a big family. I enjoy seeing the players taking care of one another by deploying munzees to help out others in need. I also wanted to give back to my fellow Munzee players. So I made the “Hksfarm’s Monthly Munzee Giveaway” group on Facebook. I love watching Youtube videos, I love Munzee, and I love giving things away, so this was a step in the right direction for me.

Unicorn lovers

What are some of your other hobbies?

I love Jeeps and working on mine. I play other GPS location games such as PokemonGo and Geocaching. I love camping when I can and getting outdoors as much as possible. Metal detecting is another of my hobbies. One day I will find that buried treasure!

Famous last words?

We are watching you… Always watching… 😉

Disclaimer: I don’t enjoy banning players. I wish everyone would play fair and not violate the Code of Conduct. I am a giver. I love sharing what Rob calls “My key to the treasure chest,” so here is an armchair prize wheel I set up for you all to capture and hopefully you will get some goodies from it! 🙂

Stay tuned to get to know more members of Team Munzee and Freeze Tag!

Munzee’s Next Update is Ready to Download!

Today we’re happy to announce our latest app update, a build on version 4.1.18, that is meant to improve several aspects of gameplay! In order to reap the benefits of our latest update, you will need to go to your app store and download the latest version of the Munzee app. Please keep in mind that it may take a little bit of time for the latest app version to arrive in your store, so be patient in the meantime!

Many will likely find the most exciting part of the app update to be the improvements to the test scan tool. The test scan tool has been updated as follows:

  • The test scan tool has been updated to show more helpful information. No more confusion about which stickers are what!
    • Each scan now shows the pin image and munzee type name
    • Munzee state is now displayed as: Never Deployed, Undeployed, Deployed by, Archived or Has Been Replaced

Additionally we have went through a number of glitches and common issues and are happy to provide the following fixes:

  • Fix for the “White Screen of Death” issue, which would cause the screen to randomly turn white and require an app restart
  • Fix for scrolling issues on Android, which include the quick deploy list, history list, captured/deployed, etc. lists and the munzee details screen
  • Fix to show owned magnetized munzees on the map again, even if the owned filter is disabled
  • Fix to show correct pin images for rovers that sit on virtual munzees that are owned or have been captured

Lastly, we have made the following two updates to facilitate easier gameplay:

  • Restored landscape mode for iPads
  • Red radius circles remain visible when zooming out far in deploy mode

We hope these updates make your gameplay experience better than ever! Remember that in order to reap the benefits of our latest update, you will need to download the latest version of the app from your app store. Also keep in mind that you can check up on Known Issues and the Version 4.x Update Log on the Help Guide at anytime.

Stay tuned for more updates and announcements! There are many exciting projects on the horizon that we can’t wait to share!

Munzee on!

Coupe du Munzee Specials Cross onto the Map!

Tomorrow marks the start of the Women’s World Cup in France, a monumental competition featuring many of the top female athletes in the world. This massive sporting event means something in the world of Munzee as well, as our Coupe du Munzee Specials will begin bouncing around on June 7 at 00:01 MHQ time all the way until July 7 at 23:59 MHQ time to cheer these female athletes on, the Munzee way!

Earn this badge by capturing at least one Coupe du Munzee special!

Fierce Females

The Coupe du Munzee specials will hit the map in support of the Women’s World Cup, a competition that allows female football stars to demonstrate their immense athletic talent in a showcasing of some of the most skilled athletes in the world. As you cheer on your home country in the World Cup, be sure to take a moment to recognize the dedication these women have put into their training to make it to such a prestigious level of professional competition!

Unfortunately not all sports give female athletes adequate opportunity to compete on professional levels. Alongside our sponsorship of the InternationElles, a female cycling team that includes our own immeasurably talented Louise, Freeze Tag stands in support of all world athletes. We encourage equality in all professional sports, which is why we are thrilled to support the InternationElles as they demonstrate that female cyclists are every ounce as capable as men. You can support Louise and her team by picking up a Flat Lou from the Freeze Tag Online Store from 10:00 MHQ time on June 8 through 10:00 MHQ time on June 11, with a portion of all Flat Lou proceeds during this sale going towards Freeze Tag’s sponsorship of the InternationElles.

Coupe du Munzee

Ready to learn more about the specials that will be hitting the map in a number of hours?! To honor the 24 teams in the Women’s World Cup, we will have 1 physical icon per team and 11 of each team’s icons bouncing on the map every 6 hours or when captured to represent each player on the field. That means that we will be starting out with 264 specials up for grabs, featuring the following icons and many more!

Though the Coupe du Munzee specials will be on the map until July 7 at 23:59, not all team icons will last the duration of the run. While we will start out with 24 icons, one for each of the 24 teams, these numbers will slowly dwindle as teams fail to advance. With each passing the round the number of icons per team may increase as they remain in the competition. The following schedule will let you know how many icons will remain on the map throughout the World Cup:

  • All teams will join the map for the following days:
    • June 7 at 00:01 MHQ time through June 22
    • 24 team icons (11 bouncers per team)
  • Only teams advancing to the Round of 16 will remain on map for the following days:
    • June 22-25 (losing teams will be removed during this time period)
    • 16 team icons
  • Only teams advancing to the Quarterfinals will remain on map for the following days:
    • June 27-29 (losing teams will be removed during this time period)
    • 8 team icons
  • Only teams advancing to the Semifinals will remain on map for the following days:
    • July 2-3 (losing teams will be removed during this time period)
    • 4 team icons
  • Only teams playing for 3rd place will remain on map for the following day:
    • July 6
    • Losing 2 team icons
  • Only teams advancing to the Finals will remain on map for the following day:
    • July 7
    • Winning 2 team icons

The Coupe du Munzee specials can be captured on previously capped and owned munzees. These physical bouncing specials will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets and can be found by turning on the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The point distribution is as follows:

Points

  • Cap: 91 points
  • CapOn: 24 points

Badges & Ensembles

Players will be able to earn a badge for capturing one Coupe du Munzee special as well as a variety of other badges as well!

Teams are competing in groups of six, so our Coupe du Munzee specials are also grouped into six Ensembles of team icons, with four teams per ensemble. You will be able to earn a badge for capturing one of each team in an Ensemble, as well as a badge upon your first capture of any Coupe du Munzee special, for a total of seven new badges to earn with these specials. Remember that since the special icons will be eliminated along with their real world teams, you’ll want to capture these icons while you can to earn the badges!

Ensemble 1

  • France
  • Nigeria
  • Norway
  • South Korea

Ensemble 2

  • China PR
  • Germany
  • South Africa
  • Spain

Ensemble 3

  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • Italy
  • Jamaica

Ensemble 4

  • Argentina
  • Japan
  • England
  • Scotland

Ensemble 5

  • Cameroon
  • Canada
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand

Ensemble 6

  • Chile
  • Sweden
  • Thailand
  • United States

Lastly, there will be special double points days for the Flat Friends and German Coupe du Munzee bonuses on select days. There will be double points on Flat Matts, Flat Robs, and Flat Hammocks when USA plays on June 11, June 16, and June 20. You can also enjoy double points on Flat Lous when England plays on June 9, June 14, and June 19. Lastly, look forward to double points on the German Coupe du Munzee specials when Germany plays on June 8, June 12, and June 17.

You may not be a pro athlete, but you can put your pro Munzee hunting skills to the test with these new specials!

Munzee on!

Prepare to Feast with Sweden Global Grub!

Today we will be bringing you another tasty Global Grub addition in order to celebrate Constitution Day in Sweden! Sweden celebrates its National Day on June 6 in order to honor the day Gustav Vasa was crowned king, way back in 1523, which laid the foundation for Sweden’s independence, while in 1809 a new constitution was adopted for Sweden on the very same date. So it’s time to fill your plates for Sweden, because the Sweden Global Grub will be joining the map today at 15:00 MHQ time!

To mark the date, we will be deploying SIX virtual Sweden Global Grub Munzees. The Sweden Global Grub specials will bounce to regular virtuals and colored virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. This special will join a number of already released Global Grubs, including Mexico, China, and Thailand.

Points

  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Have you captured any Global Grub Munzees yet? Each Global Grub capture will earn you a special badge containing a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country. Capturing a Sweden Global Grub special will award you the following tasty badge:

What better way to celebrate Sweden today than with a delicious raggmunk breakfast!? These potato pancakes are fried in butter for golden crisp perfection and served with a topping of lingonberries and a side of crunchy bacon. If you haven’t tried this delicious Swedish meal yet, then you are surely missing out!

Remember that you will have the rest of the year to capture the Global Grub specials before they leave the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ time. So don’t give up if you are yet to feast! We will also be releasing an overall capture line in the future, so stay tuned for more Global Grub updates. In the meantime, keep your appetites hearty!

Munzee on!

Team Munzee Tuezday: Matt

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. While Matt is one of Munzee’s most recognizable faces, there might be some things you don’t know about him! That’s why we had him update his answers! Today we’re taking the time to get to know Matt, Munzee’s resident cowboy. Does he look familiar to any new players? Perhaps you’ve had the pleasure of deploying or capturing a Flat Matt Munzee!

Name and Title:

Matthew McCann; eCommerce and Web Manager (matthewmccann)

Where are you from?

Born: Lake Havasu, Arizona; Hometown: Laguna Vista, Texas; Currently: McKinney, Texas

Tell us about yourself:

I spent most of my life in South Texas before moving to Richardson to attend UT Dallas. I’ve now been in the DFW area for almost 9 years. I love sports and traveling, especially when I can combine the two, and I’m on a mission to visit all 30 MLB parks before I turn 30— I’m at 17, so I’ve got a few to go. I also love trying/visiting craft breweries with friends. Other than that, you can usually find me tinkering with electronics —my office is often referred to as Radio Shack— or binging shows and movies.

Matt celebrates the successful launch of Munzee 4.0 with Dylan and Rob in January 2019 

How long have you worked for Munzee?

I celebrated my 5 year anniversary with Munzee/Freeze Tag in early May.

How did you find Munzee?

I actually knew Rob before he started working for Munzee from supporting our local minor league hockey team. When I was looking for a job during summer break in college, it was brought up that Munzee was looking to add someone new to the team. I interviewed and started a week later. (Employee #4!)

Matt found the Geocaching Vlogger (and a unicorn!) at the MunzEE event in West Bend, Wisconsin in 2017

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

In the last five years, a lot has changed: five offices, countless job titles, a merger, etc. One thing that hasn’t, though, is the dedication of both the team and the players. For employees, this isn’t just a job. We put so much of ourselves both physically and emotionally into our work (and often times rope our families and friends into it). We also see players who have done so much for the community and us that you won’t find in other games, not to mention other jobs. They’ve become good friends to many of us. When you put those together, it creates such an amazing experience that I’m grateful to have had and continue to have. So, if I haven’t said this to you before, thank you! Also, I’m pretty partial to that really cool game piece called Flat Matt. 😉

What are some of your other hobbies? 

Who needs other hobbies when you have Munzee?? Ha! But, like I said before, traveling and sports is mostly where it’s at. I’m also a pretty big SciFi nerd, so I go to conventions when I can. I also love music and going to concerts.

Famous last words?

“We’re all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?” – The Doctor

Check back next week to get to know another member of Team Munzee and Freeze Tag!

Matt headed to Kansas City for “A Spooktacular KC Halloween” in 2017 where he had the pleasure of spending time with players

Event Details

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.

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!

Munzee on!

***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).***

LegaZeeOps- Operation: Pre:Evolution (June 2019)

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 originally available in June 2017’s Operations.

June Resolutions Badge Details

Our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement through highlighting different monthly resolutions. This month we’re challenging players to save money for the June Resolutions badge.

Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. The monthly Capture Streak badges allow for the chance to work towards a different goal each month in order to bring about a year of positive growth and change.

Tips for Saving

While some are naturally skilled in the art of restraint, others need more motivation to hold themselves back from bleeding their wallets dry. However, no matter how careless you might be with your spending, it is entirely possible to reverse your financial situation by adhering to ways to save money. To maximize your long-term profits, take advantage of interest when moving around bank account assets. Take inventory of the items you have accumulated over the years, and rather than continue to add to the collection, consider what you can sell. There’s a good chance you can profit from scarcely used items in your possession.

Instead of purchasing items when the mood strikes, carefully plan your shopping endeavors. Collect coupons, sign up for rewards programs, and stock up during seasonal sales. Purchase items in their off-season, and plan ahead for holiday shopping. For example, it will be far more cost effective to purchase winter apparel at the end of the cold season and save it for the next year if you know you’ll be needing a new coat in the future. Be thrifty with your spending, and don’t leave important purchases or gifts for the last minute. By planning ahead, you can secure the most desirable prices rather than shell out extra cash for a last minute need.

Stick to your shopping list, and restrain from impulse purchases. Decide which nights you want to go out, and stick to a set budget when you do so or plan social outings around discount nights. Take care of the items that you do have, and invest in high quality, long-lasting items rather than disposable trendy apparel. Be conscious of how much money you spend on take out and eating away from home and how often you waste electricity. Investing in smart appliances is a great way to lower bills and help the environment.

No, you won’t be able to take your money to the grave. But with life being so unpredictable, you never know when some extra savings could be your saving grace. Additionally, by abstaining from giving in to momentary purchases and whims, you can save your hard-earned money for things that matter, like visiting a faraway friend or relative or doing something that you’ve dreamed of. Avoid hardship down the line and open the possibility for more opportunities by being a bit more reserved with your spending.

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!
