Things got pretty QRazy when we challenged the Munzee community to help us reach 8,888,888 deploys by the end of July. Since everyone joined forces to complete this record feat with time to spare, we decided to add a little something special to the map to mark this monumental accomplishment! Please welcome the Permanent Magic 8 Ball Munzee to the map!
We gave players the entire month of July to knock out the QRazy 8’s Deploy Challenge, but the 8,888,888th munzee was officially deployed on July 21 at 01:37:31. This very special munzee was a Crossbow deployed by Tomppa71 to officially complete the community challenge. This Munzee will now forever be a permanent Magic 8 Ball Munzee, which will work just like the specials*! You can view its location HERE!
To view this QRazy awesome special munzee, you will need to turn on your Tourism filter.
QRazy 8’s Prizes
In addition to the permanent 8 Ball, all players who deployed at least 8 munzees through the month of July have been awarded 1 Virtual, 1 Virtual Color Credit, 1 Urban Fit credit, 1 Physical Capture 2x Booster, and the limited edition QRazy 8’s badge today! This special badge appears as follows:
Thank you for all who helped make our QRzy 8’s challenge possible! There’s no community quite like ours, and we can’t wait to see what awesome things we accomplish together in the future!
*Magic 8 Ball Specials originally awarded 19 CapOn points, but Crossbows award 20 CapOn points. To make this permanent 8 Ball really special, the CapOn points for this munzee have been increased to 40 points! Congrats Tomppa17!
While some might believe that a frog’s favorite game is croak-et, their game of choice is in fact Munzee! So we decided, what better way to celebrate our amphibian friends than with their own Evolution Munzees? Starting August 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, our brand new Frog Evolutions will be made available through the August MunzPak Subscriptions!
The latest Evolution Munzee will only be available in Physical MunzPak Subscriptions, sold in the Freeze Tag Online Store. However, keep in mind that if any MunzPak orders are placed before August 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, players will be receiving the July MunzPak. The Frog Evolution is a combination of Physicals and Virtuals, with Stages 1-4 bouncing to Physical Munzees and Stage 5 bouncing to Virtual and Physical Munzees.
The 5 stages of the Frog Evolution are as follows:
Stage 1: Frog Egg
Stage 2: Tadpole
Stage 3: Pollywog
Stage 4: Froglet
Stage 5: Frog (3 Variants)
The stage timeline of the Frog Evolutions will match that of the Butterfly Evolution. The stages will be as follows:
Stage 1 to Stage 2: after 4 days
Stage 2 to Stage 3: after 14 days
Stage 3 to Stage 4: after 10 days
Stage 4 to Stage 5: permanent until Reset to stage one
Once the Frog Evolution reaches Stage 4, a temporary POB will be launched. The Pollywog will become the Froglet and remain in place, while the Frog variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.” Once the Frog Evolution reaches Stage 5, it will stay in place for 8 hours or when captured, and will not be able to be nudged. Once 10 captures or 42 days have elapsed for Stage 5, the Frog will be archived.
The first four stages of the Frog Evolutions will be the same for all players. However, Stage 5 will have the option of emerging as one of three different frog species (the green Tree Frog, blue Poison Dart Frog, or red Tomato Frog) which can bounce to both Physicals and Virtuals. Like the Flower Evolutions, the chance of the Frog Evolution evolving to one of the 3 types changes every time it is reset with the Evolution Reset Credit.
Purchasing the reset credit will set your Evolution back to Stage 1, for a chance for the Frog to evolve to a different species at Stage 5. Although you cannot capture a reset if you have already captured the original, you CAN capture the final level of a reset if it evolves to a different color than your first capture. An easy way to know is, if you see it on the map you can capture it!
Please note that although the first four stages for each are the same, they will count as different special capture icons. Like all Player Owned Bouncers (POBs), the Frog Evolution will be available for multi-capture only as the Level 5 Frog.
The points for the Frog Evolution will be as same as the Butterfly Evolution, with 100 points awarded per Stage 1 deploy.
Stage 1: Cap: 50, CapOn: 30
Stage 2: Cap: 40, CapOn: 20
Stage 3: Cap: 45, CapOn: 25
Stage 4: Cap: 40, CapOn: 30
Stage 4: Cap: 150, CapOn: 50, Host CapOn: 50
Just like real life frogs, the Frog Evolution Munzee sometimes hops to dangerous areas including predator filled waters, and high-speed roadways! Bouncing Frog Evos will be attracted to the following landing pads:
The Frog Evolution will adhere to normal proximity rules. Stage 1 deploys must be at least 50 feet from any other physical type and 150 feet from your own physical munzees. It will have a normal physical capture radius of 300 feet for Stages 1-4, and a capture radius of 500 feet for Stage 5.
Stage 5 of the Frog Evos will be attracted to Munzee Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on Green Virtuals. They are NOT blastable. To access the Frog Evolution Munzees, turn on your “Evolution” and “All Expiring Specials” filters. The Frog Evolutions will count toward Evolution Capture and Deploy badges.
The full contents of the August MuzPak Subscriptions will be revealed tomorrow. We hope this latest Evolution has you jumping for joy in the meantime! 🐸
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 August 2017’s Operations.
Agents, despite our best attempts to keep this confidential, Director Zee is missing. After being replaced by the Dictator last month, his whereabouts have become unknown. Despite his absence, it’s up to ZeeOps Agents worldwide to continue their missions and protect the world.

July has been a QRazy month, but when we say QRazy, we mean QRazy awesome! We challenged players to help us reach 8,888,888 deploys before the conclusion of the month, and the Munzee community joined forces to complete the QRazy 8’s Deploy Challenge by July 19! That means in addition to the July POTM badge, qualifying players can enjoy their QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge prizes!
Since July was Munzee’s birthday month, we wanted to celebrate a wide variety of players who help contribute to growing the game! All “Determined Deployers” who have deployed at least 16 munzees throughout July (not including socials and personals) will be awarded the special July POTM badge on August 1:
The July POTM badge is a special badge unique from previous POTM badges. This is a brand new badge that any player, regardless of previous POTM wins, is able to earn. Remember, there is still a day and a half left to finish your deploys before July ends in order to earn the badge!
QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge
In addition to the special July POTM badge, all July POTM winners also qualify for the QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge prizes! All players who deployed at least 8 munzees in the month of July will be awarded 1 Virtual, 1 Virtual Color Credit, 1 Urban Fit credit, 1 Physical Capture 2x Booster, and the limited edition QRazy 8’s badge on August 1! Check out the awesome badge design:
A big shoutout to everyone who helped us reach this QRazy milestone!
August POTM Requirements
Lastly, our August POTM criteria will call for player nominations! As the QRazy 8’s challenge demonstrated, Munzee thrives due to its awesome, interactive community. We’re lucky to have a dedicated players base who helps maintain the map, as demonstrated by ZeeQRew and QRew statuses. Do you know a player who readily responds to missing munzees and is dedicated to keeping the map clean? Email your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org! Please keep in mind that the nominated account will need to be verified as either ZeeQRew or QRew for the chance to win August POTM!
A big congratulations to all of our July POTM and GOTM winners! We’ve had a fantastic month celebrating Munzee with many of you! Remember that there are still two weeks of birthday celebrations left to be had, as well as MHQ Bash 6 on the horizon!
July has been an outstanding month, as an influx in specials hit the map and players celebrated Munzee’s 8th birthday all over the world in #8zees attire. That’s why we decided, why limit our July Garden of the Month (GOTM) winners to our typical two winning gardens, when we’ve been having the double the fun?! Below you can find all four of our winning gardens!
In honor of Munzee’s birthday month, we selected some of our favorite celebratory Munzee gardens for July GOTM. All winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map! Our winning July Gardens are as follows: 7th Birthday Garden, organized by Jesnou, Sivontim, Mandello, and Neesu; Happy Birthday Karte, organized by Engel19 and teamkiwii; Munzee Logo, organized by Bonn; and I HEART MUNZEE, organized by NativenUK! The winning gardens appear as follows:
This festive garden, created for last year’s birthday celebrations, captures the fun and joy of Munzee! Thanks to our friends in Finland for working together to organize this celebratory garden, as well as many awesome group creations!
Husband and wife team Engel19 and teamkiwii have organized a number of garden projects over the years to grow the game in the Stuttgart area of Germany, including this garden for last year’s birthday celebration. Together they have spent many hours planning and nurturing their wonderful gardens to spread Munzee joy!
Garden creator Bonn earned a second win with this Munzee Logo Garden, featuring the signature Munzee Logo and colors! Previously Bonn captured the Munzee spirit with one of the two winning March Gardens of the Month for his QR Code Map!
Inspired by the “I love NY” logo, this garden will turn red when completed and capped. Located in an untapped suburb of Buffalo, NY close to Niagara Falls, this celebratory garden was recently completed just before Munzee’s birthday month ended! We love this clever design that celebrates everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt!
All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:
Do you know a garden that is worthy of the August GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!
GOTM Rules for GOTM nominations:
Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.
Send your nomination for GOTM to email@example.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!
A big congratulations to all of our July GOTM winners, and a big thank you to all players who have helped grow the game and Celebrate Munzee! Stay tuned for for more information about July Player of the Month (POTM) and August POTM requirements!
