Jewel Shards are a Smash Hit!

We’re finally ready to give our veteran players a requested feature with a fun twist. Welcome Jewel Shards! Similar to our Hotel renovations with Destination Credits, we wanted to create a more flexible system for Jewels. This is especially true after the warm reception to the Funfinity Stone Pouch Creatures last year.

This new system is designed for experienced players who may have an overstock of specific Jewel Credits. You’ll be able to choose if you want to redeem some of your Jewel Credits for Jewel Shards. If you do, you’ll be able to use those Jewel Shards to create new Jewels of your choosing. For example, you may have tons of Aquamarines stored up from past Clan War rewards and have no plans on using them. Now you have the option of breaking some of those Aquas into Jewel Shards and using them to get a Citrine or a Ruby. The choice will be yours within the options given.

Don’t worry if you have any Jewel Credits saved up — those will remain, and all Jewels can still be purchased in the Freeze Tag online store. Of course, not all Jewels are created equal, so different amounts of Jewel Shards are required to convert to each Jewel type.

You’ll find all the details and conversion rates at munzee.com/redeem.

While Jewel Shards are currently only available as trading elements online, who knows what the future holds? Perhaps a certain bot buddy will help find more, or maybe you’ll earn them in Clan Wars or ZeeOps? Only time will tell!

Munzee on!


FAQ:

Q: I’m a new player with no Jewel Shards and no Jewel credits to exchange. What do I do?
A: Be patient. This is being introduced as a tool for those who have accumulated many credits in order to give them a way to choose what type of Munzee they become and deploy.

Q: Why are the number of Jewel Shards given for a Jewel not the same as the number of Jewel Shards required to get a Jewel?
A: The vast majority of these Jewels were earned as rewards from Clan Wars, Prize Wheels, ZeeOps, and other gameplay activities. The value doesn’t change, but the option to upgrade into a different Jewel is accounted for.

Q: Why can’t I break a virtual Amethyst (or other virtual Jewels) into Jewel Shards?
A: Virtual Jewels are complete munzees in your undeployed list, so it isn’t the same process as exchanging a Jewel Credit for a Jewel Shards credit.

Q: What about Clan Weapons?
A: What about them? 😉 Stay tuned for possible expansions into other areas of the game!

Q: Can I trade my credits to another player or give Jewel Shards to another player?
A: Nope.

Bowling Ball Munzee Details

UPDATE: This blog was originally posted in November 2018. As of November 2019, the Bowling Ball Munzee has been updated,  reflected by the information below. You can find complete information about all Gaming Munzees on the Help Guide. 

As promised, we have the details for the ALL NEW Bowling Ball Munzee! This addition to the Gaming Munzees is sure to knock a few pins loose! The Bowling Ball point system is based on ten-pin bowling, and you will have a chance to earn more points based on how many “pins” you “knock down.”

BASIC GAMEPLAY:

Bowling Ball Munzee:

Are you ready to play this classic game the Munzee way? Capturing a Bowling Ball will award you 25 points to start. The Bowling Ball Munzee will then initiate a mini-game (within a game, within a game!) for more points. Capturing a Bowling Ball Munzee will lead to a new virtual munzee called “Bowling – 1st Roll” being scattered to a location within 750 ft. You will be able to see the second stage (1st Roll) only after stage one (Bowling Ball) is captured. The scattered munzees will remain active for 1 hour or until captured from within a 150ft distance. 

1st Roll Munzee:

Capturing the 1st Roll Munzee, released after Capturing the Bowling Ball, will provide different options for players. If you earn a STRIKE, you will be awarded 300 points, and the game will be done. You also have the opportunity to earn anywhere between 1-9 points (one for each pin “knocked” down), and the game will advance to a virtual “2nd Roll,” which will be scattered within 500ft.

2nd Roll Munzee:

A 2nd Roll Munzee will be made available to players who have capped a Bowling Ball and a 1st Roll and did not earn a Strike on the 1st Roll. When the 2nd Roll Munzee is captured, players will either earn a SPARE and be awarded 150 points, or they will earn between 10-80 points based on number of pins “knocked” down. Either way, this will conclude the game!

POINT BREAKDOWN:

Bowling Ball Munzee

  • Deploy: 50 points
  • Capture: 25 points
  • CapOn: 20 points

1st Roll Munzee

STRIKE!

300 points 

-or-

SO CLOSE

1-9 points 

2nd Roll Munzee

SPARE!

150 points

-or-

GAME OVER!

10-80 points 

The first Bowling Ball will be a physical munzee, while the 1st Roll and 2nd Roll will both be virtual scatters. The Bowling Ball has a standard deploy radius. The scattered munzees will remain active for 1 hour or until captured from within a 150ft (45.72 m) distance. 

Additionally there are a number of different badges you can earn based on capturing the Bowling Ball Munzees, earning Strikes, and earning Spares. Check out the first of each badge line here:

Line up your shot, and Munzee on!

July Resolutions Are Here!

While you still have a few days left in June to put your iced coffee money in your savings account for June Resolutions, we’re already looking to the future for our July Resolutions badge! From eating healthy to traveling more, our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement. As summer heats up on the Northern Hemisphere, this month we challenge players to lose weight (if you need to for your health)!

Even Santa is working on his “summer bod”

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.

Losing Weight for Health

While folks on the Southern Hemisphere might be bundling up, the Northern Hemisphere is well into bathing suit season. And for many, the rise in temperature is accompanied by a heightened dissatisfaction with one’s physical appearance. Weight loss, however, shouldn’t be something that is appearance based. It might sound cheesy, but if you’re asking yourself “do I have a summer body?” the answer is “do you have a body?” If you say “yes,” then you’re all ready to hit the beach!

While it’s crucial to accept your body as is, that doesn’t mean that you can neglect your health. If your weight is impacting your health, then it’s time to lose weight the right way in order to feel better and increase your longevity. Rather than gravitate towards a fad diet or “lose weight quick” scheme, the two main components of weight loss are diet and exercise. The number one reason why diets fail is because they are unsustainable. By changing your lifestyle choices permanently, you will never again have to grapple with the disappointments of “yo-yo dieting.” Just be sure to find a healthy meal plan that works best for YOU.

While counting calories can lead to unhealthy behaviors, it is beneficial to be aware of factors such what you eat, how much you eat, when you eat, and how often you eat. Keeping a food journal, or tracking your food intake on one of the many helpful dieting apps, can help you become more aware of what you put into your body so that you can make more informed dining choices.

When it comes to staying active, the playing field is unfortunately not even. However, if you have underlying medical issues that are prohibiting weight loss, you can still set daily goals for yourself. We are so proud of how many players have achieved monumental fitness accomplishments, especially after many have shared their stories of chronic physical disabilities and illnesses that they refuse to allow to hold them back. Remember, the only person you have to compete with when it comes to fitness is yourself. Focus on personal growth rather than comparing yourself to others, and remember that health is always the goal.

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!

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!

Limited Time Sale! Shop Mitmegu and More!

It’s time to act fast, because the Mitmegu Pouch Creatures will not be sticking around the Freeze Tag Online Store for long! Our limited time Mitmegu collection sale starts today at 10:00 MHQ time, and you won’t want to miss the following offers!

Mitmegu

Only a limited number of Mitmegu will be available for public sale. Each Mitmegu will cost $15, but you can upgrade it with a Bouncer Upgrade credit for an extra $5. The Bouncer Upgrade credit will equip your Mitmegu with the ability to be “nudged” to a new Munzee. This nudge feature can be used up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day) after it has sat for a minimum of three hours so that other players have the opportunity to find it.

Joining Mitmegu for sale are our other Pouch Creatures, Tuli, Vesi, and Muru. The Bouncer Upgrade credit will upgrade all Pouch Creatures and all Myths, so be sure to pick one up in the shop! If you haven’t deployed a Pouch Creature yet, now is your chance! The Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Pouch Creature. While the name will still retain the unique number, you have the chance to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. (Just remember our player code of conduct!)

Additionally, the Water, Earth, and Fire Elemental Munzees will also be on sale this weekend in strips of 5 for $8, which is 20% off the original price! We also have Shamrock Munzees available in strips of 5 for $8. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner so stock up now!

Introducing Mitmegu Pouch Creature!

Joining the ranks of Tuli, Vesi, Muru, and Hadavale, we’re happy to announce the release of our latest Pouch Creature, Mitmegu!

Also known as the ever-changing Pouch Creature, there will be a limited number of Mitmegu Pouch Creatures on sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting at 10:00 MHQ on Wednesday, February 6. Be sure to shop fast, because Mitmegu will not be in the store for long! Mitmegu will cost $15, but it can also be upgraded using a Bouncer Upgrade credit (formerly the Myth Upgrade) which costs an additional $5.

When the Bouncer Upgrade credit is used, your Mitmegu will then have the ability to be “nudged” to a new Munzee. You can use the nudge feature up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day), but only after it has sat for at least 3 hours. This gives players the opportunity to find it before you send it on its way!

The Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Mitmegu! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct, and be mindful of maintaining a family friendly environment!

Mitmegu

While Mitmegu will be the fourth player-owned Pouch Creature, it will work a bit differently than Tuli, Vesi and Muru. Mitmegu will change forms depending on what it lands on and capture streaks will not impact the changing critter’s evolution.

 

Mitmegu will land on the following Munzee types:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrock Munzees
  • Scatter Munzees
  • Premium Munzees
  • RPS Munzees

There is a rare opportunity that the Mitmegu will land on an Elemental Mystery and change forms!

  • If Mitmegu lands on a Water Mystery Munzee it turns into Jootmegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on an Earth Mystery Munzee it turns into Rohimegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on a Fire Mystery Munzee it turns into Lokemegu

Mitmegu will retain its number when it changes, and if you upgrade and change its name it will keep that name on all forms. Players can cap Mitmegu on their own munzees as well.

Mitmegu Points

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture/CapOn: See Below

Mitmegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Mitmegu

Jootmegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 400 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Jootmegu

Rohimegu points will be distributed as follows:

Rohimegu

Lokemegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 400 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Lokemegu

You can find Mitmegu by turning on your Only Expiring Specials and Only Pouch Creatures filters. This new Pouch Creature WILL be attracted to physical magnets, but only as Mitmegu on Greenies. Don’t forget to pick up a magnet at the Freeze Tag Online Store and magnetize a greenie of your choosing to attract up to 3 Specials, Myths, or Pouch Creatures for up to an hour!

For deploying a Mitmegu Pouch Creature Munzee, you will earn the following deploy badge:

There will also be three badges to earn per variant, amounting to a total of thirteen badges including the deploy badge.

Here are the first for each variant:

Munzee 4.0 Is Finally HERE! New Features and Updates Explained!

We know that you have all been patiently waiting for the new and improved 4.0 version of the Munzee app, and we are happy to announce that it has finally arrived! That’s right, the wait is over.

You can download the iOS version of the new app HERE!

You can download the Android version of the new app HERE!

This is an entirely new build, so you will not update your current version 3 of the Munzee app. Instead you will need to search for the new version in your phone’s app store. Please remember that the app may take some time to propagate, so if you don’t see it in the App or Google Play Store, just give it some time. We will be keeping version 3 of the app active temporarily, but we do plan to shut down that version in the near future, so just go ahead and download 4.0 today!

But before you jump into the newly updated game, complete with brand new features, allow us to break down some of our favorite things about 4.0!

The latest version of everyone’s favorite game is a foundation for us to build upon. We consider it a vision for the future, with additional tools being added regularly as we move forward. Due to limitations from version 3, we’ve had to delay some awesome features in the past, but this will limit us no more! We have some big ideas ahead, but for now let’s take a look at what 4.0 has to offer!

Main Feature Updates

  • New and improved map loading speed.
  • New square pins for Physical Munzees and round pins for Virtual Munzees.
  • Updated artwork to include all types in pin form to more precisely show the location of the munzee.
  • New interactive walkthrough tutorial hosted by our buddy the newly energized Rover.
  • Reorganization of filters into categories, making them easier to sort through.
  • Players can now combine multiple premium filters at a time.
  • Larger, cleaner font throughout the game.
  • Improved compass that more clearly indicates the Northern point.
  • Improved follow feature to keep player marker centered on the map.
  • New in-app announcements system that will deliver news directly to the players.

Additional Updates

  • The Munzee capture button at the bottom changes between square and round depending on the type selected on the map so you always know which type you’re looking for.
  • Pouch Creatures and Evolution Munzees now include stage numbers.
  • New “All Alternamyths” and “All Places” premium filters.
  • Filters are now applied immediately. Players do not need to save each time they choose filters.
  • Players can now see what filters they have set for each preset, making it easier to edit and make changes.
  • Magnet and Special timers now show down to the minutes/seconds.
  • Added a new “Inventory” section to the profile, making it more clear to new players what they have available to deploy.
  • Players can now quickly tap to capture from the List view using the new green arrow buttons, instead of sliding the entry in the list then tapping to cap.
  • Tapping on badge notifications in the activity feed now takes you to that specific badge in your collection. 
  • Added countdown timer to the leaderboards for when it will reset in MHQ time.

Share with Friends

We know that playing Munzee can be a bit overwhelming to new players, but many of our most diehard fans appreciate the complexity and pride that comes with mastering this multi-layered game. Luckily with our new in-app tutorial for new players, it’s easier than ever to introduce new players to Munzee. That’s why we’re asking our players to share 4.0 with their friends and family! 

As a limited time extension to our current Munzee Referral Program, we will host a referral contest starting next week! Help us share the new app and Grow the Game for a chance to earn a limited edition badge, prizes, and more! We’ll have more information next week, but this contest will not be retroactive, and it will only run from February 1 through 28.

While you’re waiting for those details, though, head over to the Freeze Tag Online Store and download a free Custom Referral Card. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to introduce new players to the game and get rewarded for it. The Custom Referral Card will contain your personal Referral code to share with new players. The more shares, the more rewards!

We will also be running several sales tomorrow in celebration of the 4.0 update release! There will be a separate blog post detailing those sales today at 12:00 MHQ, and all sales will begin at 12:15 MHQ.

We know this is long overdue, but we can’t explain enough how many possibilities this opens for the future. The whole team has worked so hard for this release, and we’re ready to keep the momentum moving forward! Thank you to the beta testers for their support (and constructive criticisms) throughout this process. This app would not be what it is today if it wasn’t for them.

Lastly we’d like to give a BIG thank you to all of our players for all of your patience. Thank you for the feedback! Thank you for helping us build the map! Thank you to the many who devote daily dedication to playing Munzee! We wouldn’t be here without you!

So go check out 4.0! Happy Hunting, and Munzee On!

Begin your Adventure with Trail Munzee Badges!

One of the best parts about Munzee is the opportunity to explore new places, so we decided to drop nine new badges for activity on Trail Munzees. These badges will drop today (1/29) at 10:00 MHQ. That means if you’re reading this, you have the opportunity to earn them!

As many of you know, the Trail Munzees are deployed in a path that leads other players to a place worth seeing. These munzees can form a tour to one of your favorite local hangs, or lead others to a site that makes your town unique. As long as they get you out of the house and exploring, the Trail Munzees are doing their job!

Overall there with be nine new Trail Munzee badges being released today. These badges will be retroactive. There will be 3 badges for capturing Trail Munzees, 3 badges for deploying Trail Munzees, and 3 badges for completing entire Trails.

All Trail Munzee types will count towards these badges:

  • Trail Munzees
  • Virtual Trail Munzees
  • Event Trail Munzees

We won’t spoil the requirements for all of the badges, but here’s a sneak peak of the first in each line!

Gatherer- Capture 10 Trail Munzees of any type. 

Wayfinder- Deploy 5 Trail Munzees of any type. 

Daytripper- Capture every stop on a single Trail of any type.

Help create new opportunities in your neighborhood by deploying Trail Munzees! Stop by the Freeze Tag Online Store and purchase physical credits, which you can use to convert regular greenies into Trail stops. Or you can purchase Virtual credits individually; you will receive a Virtual Trail credit and a Virtual Munzee with each purchase.

The physical Trail tags (either metal or plastic tree tags) are hardcoded with Trail munzees, so you don’t need basic greenies. Click here to see the entire Trail Munzee collection.

Don’t forget to let us know when you earn new badges! Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to let us know how you’re doing. Happy hunting and Munzee on!
