Aquatic Baby Animals Have Come Out to Play!

Once we started thinking about adding turtles and jellyfish to the game, we couldn’t stop coming up with more animals to add! Luckily, we found a few more animals already swimming around under the ZEE! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on June 5th, Baby Animal specials will begin bouncing around the map until 23:59 MHQ on June 21st.

Baby Animals Details

Players of our sister app, WallaBee, may recognize the art for some of these adorable bouncers, but we’ve added a few new ones to the mix as well! Can you guess which ones they are?

500 of these specials (100 of each released over the next 5 hours) will bounce to the following landing pads:

To shake things up a bit, we’ve set different timers for each Aquatic Baby Animal. Each type will bounce at the listed time below, or when captured.

  • Narwhal- Bounce every 6 hours
  • Penguin- Bounce every 5 hours
  • Crab- Bounce every 4 hours
  • Seal Pup- Bounce every 3 hours
  • Shark- Bounce every 2 hours

Hopefully these varying bounce times will allow everyone the opportunity to capture some of each type! They will be worth 150 points for Capture and 50 points for CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out!

The Baby Animals will be attracted to Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets, respectively. However, they will not be blastable. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

Additionally, there will be six NEW badges to earn based on the number of Aquatic Baby Animal specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 6 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Marine Map- Capture 1 Aquatic Baby Animal of any type.

The beach may be a great place to relax, but an aquarium gives you the opportunity to see these animals up close! Do you have any photos of fond memories at an aquarium? Please post them in the comments! We’d love to see them!

We hope these aquatic cuties have swum into the depths of your heart!

Munzee on!

*Blue Colored Virtuals include:

  • Virtual Blue Violet
  • Virtual Blue
  • Virtual Cadet Blue
  • Virtual Periwinkle
  • Virtual Cornflower
  • Virtual Blue Green
  • Virtual Pacific Blue
  • Virtual Cerulean
  • Virtual Robin Egg Blue
  • Virtual Indigo
  • Virtual Turquoise Blue

MHQ Petting Zoo Animals Have Escaped!

It wouldn’t be spring at MHQ without some cute baby animals, but instead of playing it safe with tried-and-true pastels, we added a more colorful, nostalgic twist! Unfortunately, it seems that someone at MHQ (*cough* Flat Rob *cough*) didn’t check if the pens were secure, so now the animals have run amok! Starting at 11:11 MHQ on April 9th, Baby Animal specials will begin bouncing around the map until 23:59 MHQ on April 30th.

Baby Animals Details

Players of our sister app, WallaBee, may recognize the art for these adorable bouncers! We chose these 5 animals based on 3 factors: cuteness, cuddliness, and charisma. We hope they can provide a little virtual snuggle for those of you who really need it during this unprecedented time. Can you collect them all?

500 of these specials (100 of each) will bounce to all all colors of Virtual Munzees, Electric Mysteries, Surprises, Onyxes, and Citrines every 1 hour or when captured. Each animal will be worth 150 points for Capture and 50 points for CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out!

These colorful cuties will be attracted to Virtual Magnets! However, they will not be blastable. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

Additionally, there will be five badges to earn based on the number of Baby Animals specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 5 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Sweet Stickers- Capture 1 Baby Animal Special of any type.

One way we’ve been amusing ourselves at home is digging through our garages for old toys — does this post inspire you to search through your forgotten troves? We’d love to see any treasures you find — please post them in the comments of our social posts so we can all see!

We hope you’ll fall in love with these furry friends!

Munzee on!

MHQ Has No Shortage of Toilet Paper!

Last month, Flat Matt’s luck was put to the test and he seemed to come out unscathed, thanks to all of the unlucky 13’s you captured! But why is Flat Matt always getting the attention? This month, we think it’s time to show Flat Lou some love! Starting at 11:11 MHQ on March 31st, Lou Roll specials will begin bouncing around the map until 23:11 MHQ on April 13th.

Lou Roll Details

Before you think we’re unfairly poking fun at Louise, just know this was her idea! Flat Lou has been sponsored by a toilet paper company for her upcoming race. It may not be the most extravagant of sponsors, but she does get all the two-ply she wants!

401 of these specials will bounce to all Flat Lous and Virtual Colors every 4 hours or when captured. Each roll will be worth 140 points for Capture and 41 points for CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out!

These plush MOBs will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtual Colors! However, they will not be blastable. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

Additionally, there will be four badges to earn based on the number of Lou Roll specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 4 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Rare Roll-Capture 1 Lou Roll Special

Both Lou Rolls and loo rolls are in rare supply these days! We don’t suggest hoarding, but you might want to have a couple extra rolls around in case of a rainy day. Are there slang terms for “toilet paper” where you’re from? Please share in the comments of our social posts!

We hope these specials help to lighten your load, wherever you are!

Munzee on!

Best Dressed Fall into Spring Events Contest Details!

With the first Fall into Spring events kicking off this weekend*, we can’t wait to see how players celebrate the change in season! Similar to last year’s 8zees Best Dressed Contest, the event host will choose a winner at each event based on best themed attire. Event attendees will have 2 of 3 outfit options:

  • if it’s Spring where the event is being held, consider dressing in a Spring-themed outfit, e.g. florals, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, etc.
  • likewise, if it’ll be Fall where the event is being held, consider dressing in a Fall-themed outfit, e.g. leaves, golden and jewel tones, in-season fruits and vegetables
  • if you’re game for a more challenging option, consider dressing as one of the Mythological Munzees, such as those that appear on the Fall into Spring Event Package badges, or take inspiration from our staff members below!

L to R: Mari, hunniees, and Tamara at Registration Night for MH-Boo Bash! Mari is dressed as a Rainbow Unicorn while Tamara is dressed as a Pegasus.

It’s the event hosts’ responsibility to decide which attendee will win the Best Dressed badge. In order to earn the special badge for winning this costume contest, the event host must submit an entry to our Google Form, which we will provide to each host. Unfortunately we will not be able to award any Best Dressed badges without a form submission, so be sure to get them in! You can see the artwork for the badge below!

Featuring another ethereal goddess, Trish, who is responsible for a lot of our event artwork! She and Louise are a dynamic Event Goddess duo!

We’ll share some of our favorite player outfits to the official Munzee social media pages throughout March and April, but the badge will not be awarded until after the events have wrapped up. Then we’ll add all of the winners to a gallery on the Munzee Blog to announce when the badge has been awarded!

Don’t forget there’s still time to purchase Fall into Spring Event Packages, but Trish’s diary is filling up so if you want custom artwork you better act fast! Remember that we’ve extended the period for Fall into Spring Events up to and including the month of May! For those hosting events in the coming weeks please remember to use caution and follow local guidelines in regards to health concerns.

We’ve got an exciting season ahead of us, so stay tuned!

Munzee on!

*Event safety is up to the host of each event. Please follow community COVID-19 guidelines.

Chase ZEE Rainbow!

As stated in our post on Friday, we are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation, and stress that player safety is a top priority. We have a lot of fun things planned over the next few weeks, and are trying to consider the wide variety of situations our players are facing. Tweaks have been made to our original designs to accommodate this. That being said, we are not planning to stop rolling out new game pieces or app updates anytime soon! Our goal is to give you options to “Play your way” safely!

It seems the umbrella Flat Matt opened may come in handy, because Rainbows are here! Immediately following the Flat Day the 13th: Part 3 specials, we are happy to introduce our brand-new Rainbow Trail specials! Starting at 13:00 MHQ on March 17th, Rainbow Trail specials will begin bouncing around the map until 23:59 MHQ on March 31st.

Rainbow Trail Details

777 of these specials will bounce to Greenies, Shamrocks, and Earth Mystery munzees every 7 hours or when captured.

This cheerful arc will be worth 77 points for both the Capture and CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! As it is a physical MOB, it will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

When you capture a Rainbow Trail, up to three different Colored Zed Munzees will generate (like Feathers) and scatter within 1,000 feet. As we are aware that many players may be under quarantine, we’ve extended the capture radius from our original limit to 300 feet.

These munzees will stay on the map for 1 hour or when captured. Each Colored Zed will award 100 points AND potentially a small number of Zeds to your account! We thought this would be a fun way to accumulate some extra currency to go toward useful items like Blasts and Magnets, especially during these tough times.

Badges

Additionally, there will be two badges to earn for these specials. One based on the number of Rainbow Trail specials you capture, and one for the number of Colored Zeds you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn both badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows, so maybe that will give you a hint!

One more thing before we go! Leprechauns and Shamrocks really wanted to join in on the fun too! All activity on Shamrocks, POB Leprechauns, and Leprechaun variants will be worth double points during this entire special! To celebrate we’ve put Shamrock Credits on sale for $1 and added Leprechauns back into the store!

We hope you’ll see some rainbows during this stormy seclusion!

Munzee on!

Flat Day The 13th Pt 3 Specials

March seems like an innocent enough month, but sometimes when the stars align, it is capable of great evil. Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar taught us to “Beware the Ides of March,” but it’s got nothing on Flat Day The 13th Part 3! Starting at 13:00 MHQ on March 12th, Flat Day the 13th Part 3 specials will begin bouncing around the map until 13:00 MHQ on March 17th.

Flat Day The 13th Part 3: The Return! Details

If you want to get caught up on the storyline, here are our posts for Part 1 and Part 2. This year, 1,300 of these specials will bounce to all Flat Friends and Virtual Colors every 6 hours or when captured.

This lucky number will be worth 130 points for both the Capture and CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! The ominous virtual MOB will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtual Colors! However, they will not be blastable. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

Additionally, there will be four badges to earn based on the number of Flat Day The 13th Part 3 specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 4 badges will be kept a secret!  However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Flat Matt claims he’s not superstitious, but opening an umbrella indoors will only cause trouble! Hopefully his luck turns around on FLAT DAY THE 13TH!

SPECIAL UPDATE: ALL Flats will be on the map for this time period! Also a special 13% off Flat Sale including Flat Matt available ONLY in the Flat Pack! Sale ends Monday!

We hope you’re ready to face these foul flat specials once again!

Munzee on!

Fall Into Spring Event packages will be available in the Freeze Tag Online Store as of the publication of the blog. However, they are only applicable to events occurring from March 17 to April 19. It’s important to purchase a package as soon as possible so that you can let us know your art request if you’re purchasing a package containing a badge and icon.

Each package features a unique host badge for themed fun, with each badge (pictured above) depending on which package is purchased. The package options are:

All packages also contain an Attendee Badge. Take your Fall Into Spring Event to the next level with additional add-ons that you can purchase through the Munzee Events Team.

So get those events on the calendar, purchase your Fall Into Spring Packages, and start communication for artwork requests nice and early please! As Trish’s diary fills up, we will have to move to generic artwork, so act as soon as possible if you are seeking custom art!

We’ll also have more details regarding an upcoming community competition closer to the start of the Fall Into Spring events. This will be similar to the Best Dressed competitions at past events and players will be able to win a unique badge. Stay tuned for more! 

Once more, the Munzee Events Team is here to walk you through every step of the updated event hosting process, with each detail outlined on the Help Guide for full access. Start the year fresh and catch up with friends you missed during the holidays!

Let’s Fall into Spring!

Munzee on!

2019 Yearly Leaderboard Badges!

At first glance, Munzee seems like a pretty simple game. Scan physical munzees to get points. Tap on virtual munzees to get even more points. There are different types of physical munzees and different types of virtual munzees that award you with varying numbers of points. Simple, right?

What’s not so simple is how to stay on top of all the numerous active players! While more established players do have an advantage in terms of deployed munzees (rake in those CapOn points!), they face difficulties in finding munzees to cap, especially if they are active in Clan Wars! Taking advantage of special points days, active Flat Friends days, and other strategies are necessary to maintain or improve their ranking.

For the first time in Munzee History we are happy to recognize the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place on the overall yearly leaderboard for 2019! These accomplished players are, as follows:

  1. OldSchoolSkater
  2. hunniees
  3. dt07751

Congratulations! Now the pressure’s on to keep your spot for next year!

Other Munzee players — think you have what it takes to dethrone this Triumphant Trio? We think anything’s possible!

Munzee On!

December Resolutions Ask You to Dig Deep!

We’ve done it! We’ve reached the final month of 2019. Looking back at all the previous months, how has your journey of self-improvement gone thus far? This month we’d like to expand on the previous month’s theme of volunteer work by opening it up to all forms of giving.

Giving from the heart can cost nothing!

Since January, we’ve been releasing monthly Capture Streak badges centered around a year of personal improvement. Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution in our quest for a year of positive growth and change. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Besides volunteering, let’s consider the other ways in which we can give more!

The Good of Giving More

Everybody has limited resources. During the holiday season, this is probably felt even more so, as you struggle to cross off names on your own Nice list. Volunteer work is a great way to give more as it often only costs you time — but how else can we give more without further breaking the bank? Maybe you’d still prefer to give to strangers — in that case, have a tidying up session and donate your gently used items that no longer spark joy! The benefits will be twofold — you get a cleaner home, and someone else will get something they want and/or need!

If you need to ease your way into it, you can start by giving in your very own home! Is there anything around the house that needs to be repaired? Put on your ZeeQRew hardhat and fix it! Is there a Global Grub someone in your family has always wanted to try? Buy the ingredients on your next grocery trip and get cooking! Has it been way too long since your last Family Board Game Night? Break out the MH-Qlue, Monopoly, or your own preferred tabletop game and see if your strategies have improved since last time… or not!

Perhaps the most important way to give more, in today’s world of mental health and anxiety issues, is to lavish someone with words of love. Tell your loved ones that you love them. Spread the love to more distant family members and friends by calling, texting, e-mailing, or even sending snail mail to let them know how much you care. If you are already in the habit of doing those things, try complimenting a stranger. Many of us have been taught that “actions speak louder than words” and prefer to use actions (such as those listed in the previous paragraph) to show how much we care — but sometimes, actions are too subtle. Sometimes, we need to hear with our own ears that we are loved.

And that’s a wrap! We hope you enjoyed this year of Resolutions! Let us know which one you took to heart the most!

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!
