Announcing May Important Information!

Today we have a number of important dates to add to your calendar for May in addition to our Flat Friends schedule! May is a fun month for the world of Munzee, with many additional events on the horizon!

May POTM Criteria

Many Munzee players have been enjoying our revamped Player of the Week program, Player of the Month! Now that May has officially arrived, we are happy to announce the POTM criteria for this month.

The May POTM criteria will award all “Myth Masters.” Anyone who has captured 500 or more uniques of a specific myth (i.e. 500 unique Unicorn Munzees, 500 unique Pegasus Munzees, etc.) will earn the POTM title! If you are only a few captures away, fear not, because you will have until May 28 at 23:59 MHQ time to complete your captures for the chance to earn POTM in May!

QRewsday Schedule

Two weeks ago we announced the creation of QRew, and since then, many players have been reaping the benefits of QRewzee points as they work to help clean up the map. The QRewzee Munzee replaced the former Recycle Munzee, offering 100 Capture points and 10 CapOn points. However, the new icons will only appear on designated QRewsdays. Be sure to mark the following dates so that you can reap the benefits (and badges!) our QRewzee Munzees have to offer! The May QRewsdays are as follows:

  • May 4-6
  • May 9-10
  • May 14-15
  • May 19, May 23, May 25
  • May 28-29

Remember, if you didn’t make QRew (or ZeeQRew) as of 00:01 this morning, you’ll have another chance this month at 00:01 MHQ time on May 15!

Munzee Mania

Flat Robs will be hitting the map this weekend, as real Rob will be out of office for Munzee Mania! This weekend long Minnesota event will see a whole host of Munzee players attending from Friday, May 3 to Sunday, May 5. The player hosted weekend in the Twin Cities will feature the following four events:

  1. Meet ‘n Greet on May 3 from 18:00 to 22:00 at Culinary on North Food Court
  2. Main Event on May 4 from 10:00 to 15:00 at Blackhawk Park
  3. Pizza Party on May 4 from 18:00 to 21:00 at Pizza Ranch
  4. Bagels & Coffee on May 5 from 9:30 to 10:30 at Bruegger’s Bagels

Check out the calendar for a complete listing of player run events! Will you be seeing Rob in Minnesota this weekend?

GeoWoodstock

This year’s annual celebration will take place in Fort Worth, making it a convenient trip for us folks at MHQ! Join Rob and the gang at GeoWoodstock XVII. The largest geocaching event in North America will take place from Friday, May 24 to Sunday, May 26. Are you planning to attend some Munzee event(s)?! Luckily we have the details to make your planning for the weekend easier!

  • Friday (May 24): Pre-MunzStock from 18:00 to 20:00; kick off the weekend, and have some Friday fun!
  • Saturday morning (May 25): GeoWoodstock & Munzee at 9:00; Let’s explore GeoWoodstock! Everyone is invited to the CoExist field trip around 10.
  • Saturday afternoon (May 25): MunzStock Saturday at 15:00; Enjoy the second of Saturday’s events at Trinity Park!
  • Sunday (May 26): MunzStock Sunday from 13:00 to 15:00; take a quick tour of MHQ and stock up on some of our goodies!

Interested in purchasing this year’s CoExist package? You can order yours from the Freeze Tag Online Store starting today at 12:00 MHQ time until 12:00 MHQ time on Wednesday, May 8. Each CoExist purchase will guarantee you a special t-shirt and personal tag that you won’t want to miss out on! Purchase yours today for $15 (plus tax) to represent Munzee at GeoWoodstock!

The same as last year, we will NOT be shipping our CoExist collection, and players CANNOT pick up your collection for you. You must pick up in person, NO EXCEPTIONS. Clear enough? 😉 So only order a CoExist package if you plan to be at GeoWoodstock this year. We hope to see you at GeoWoodstock coexisting with us!

Matt, Rob, and Hammock enjoy GeoWoodstock XIII way back in 2015. Ready to make new memories this year?

What fun Munzee plans do you have this May?

Munzee on!

April Resolutions Badge Details Have Arrived!

Can you believe we’ve already completed a quarter of 2019? Our monthly Capture Streak Badges centered around a year of personal improvement have already brought us the resolution to eat healthy (January), make new friends (February), and explore new hobbies (March). This month we’re happy to introduce getting organized as out April Resolution!

Each month’s badge is dedicated to accomplishing a different 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. Remember that each month is the chance to put your best foot forward, so if you’re new to the game or accidentally missed a day, there’s no time like the present to get started on your streaks!

Organize Your Life

Have you heard of the term “spring cleaning?” Even if you’re currently enjoying fall on the Southern Hemisphere, it can benefit your life greatly to join us folks on the Northern Hemisphere and get your life cleaned out and organized this spring.

Did you know that there are health benefits to being organized? Organization is linked to an increased boost in energy. Shake the midday slump with a quick desk organization. Having your personal and digital space in order can lead to a burst in energy. Organization can also lead to better eating habits! That’s right, organizational skills are linked to healthier eating. They can even potentially lower heart attack risks by getting people off their feet and moving!

Organization can also improve sleep habits, which are a critical component of overall health. Clutter can lead to an increase in stress which disrupts sleep time and quality. Give yourself the peace of minded needed to recharge and reboot by having your personal effects in order. Overall, organization is linked to a reduction in stress and an increase in happiness. So don’t forget to use your filters to organize everyone’s favorite game!

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!

March Resolution Badge Details!

How comfortable are you with getting outside of your comfort zone? What skills have you been meaning to sharpen? Our monthly Capture Streak Badges are centered on a year of self-improvement, and March is no different. While January focused on eating healthy and February involved making new friends, March will be the month of picking up new hobbies!

Underwater sweater knitting, anyone?

Each month’s badge will be dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. Even if you missed out on the last two months, it’s never too late to get in on the healthy and happy living! The extra Munzee badge is just an added bonus.

The Importance of Hobbies

What’s your favorite hobby? (I mean aside from Munzee, of course.) While many of us feel consumed by our day to day lives, you don’t have to wait until retirement to explore your hobbies. And if you are already retired, you’re in luck! It’s time to start exploring what you enjoy. Carving a part out of each day to devote to activities that nourish you physically, mentally, and spiritually is tantamount to achieving overall health and well-being.

Maybe you fell out of touch with a cherished childhood activity or you’ve been meaning to explore a new activity for years. Whatever the case, having a hobby is proven to be beneficial for your mind and body. Hobbies are an excellent stress reliever, which has benefits for both your mental happiness and your overall physical health. It’s crucial to remember to take a break and unwind with an enjoyable activity in order to give yourself some important relaxation time.

At the same time, hobbies allow the opportunity for new experiences and challenges. Shake up the normal routine of your daily life and allow your brain to focus on something new. The mental stimulation will be rewarding, while allowing the chance to explore and discover new talents. Who knows what hidden hobby you will discover in yourself! It might even prove to be financially lucrative, while learning new skills can advance your career.

Don’t allow your free time to be wasted! Enrich your spirit by picking up a new hobby this month. Oh and don’t forget to cap something every day this month too!

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!

Please get orders and art requests in ASAP, and we will be moving to generic artwork requests only in the next week or so when Trish has run out of slots for custom work!

February Resolution Badge Details!

How has 2019 been treating you so far? As we announced last month in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of self-improvement. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. And since this month is the shortest, you have no excuse not to try!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. While our January resolution focused on eating healthy, we decided to do something special for the month of love. Love comes in more than just romantic forms, so we made our February resolution to make new friends.

February resolutions badge

Why meet new people?

Though socializing comes natural to some lucky humans, many struggle to build new friendships. While it’s tempting to retreat into yourself, there are actually proven health benefits that friendship can provide.

In fact, having friends may even extend your lifespan. People who forge strong social relationships are less likely to die prematurely compared to their isolated counterparts. Friends help each other get healthier, as well as improve mental sharpness. And, of course, we need friends to lean on in tough times, bounce ideas off, challenge our beliefs, and widen our perspectives. Overall, having a trusted network of friends makes us healthier, more balanced, and more centered beings.

One of our favorite parts about Munzee is all the new people we meet along the way. Whether we’re traveling across states or nations, or simply checking our social media and e-mails, we love hearing about and seeing how Munzee has brought people together. It’s not always easy to branch out, but sharing a common interest really helps with meeting new people. And while nothing can replace physical friends, it’s pretty awesome to have virtual ones as well!

So go out, make some friends, and maybe even introduce them to Munzee! Good luck and 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!

LegaZeeOps- Operation: The End

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 July 2018’s Operations.

The final moves are about to be played. The war between the First Clan and The Rising Sons has come to a head and the safety of the world hangs in the balance. To make matter worse The Zodiac Vigilante and his hoard of Evolution Munzees are fighting back. The Vigilante has joined forces with the R.U.M. and the Mean Green Gang, whose aggressive tactics are a danger to civilians.

The final chapter of this ongoing war is upon us and it’s up to ZeeOps Agents worldwide to join together!

February 2019 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. Remember that if you hit a snag at any point in your Operation you can use the Mission Mulligan feature to keep going!

This month features a lot of different Munzee types so be sure to stock up in the online store.

By completing any Operation this month you’ll earn the new* “LegaZeeOps- Operation: The End” 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: The End” badge in July 2018 can also earn the “LegaZeeOps- Operation: The End” badge as well by completing a February 2019 Operation.
