Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash is Coming Up! (Plus New Tags!)

Will you be joining us in California for Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash on Saturday, July 20? The #8zees will be in full swing as Matt, Dylan, Craig, Mick, Mari, Tamara, and Emma join players in turning back time for Munzee’s 8th birthday celebration in sunny Tustin, CA! You will be able to earn some awesome new badges and icons, including the two pictured below:

You can RSVP to the event now to join members of the Freeze Tag Team on July 20 at 10:00 in Citrus Ranch Park for an unforgettable trip down memory lane. Not sure what to wear? As you recall, each event host has been awarding players with a special badge for best 8zees (80s) attire. And though staff members won’t be vying for this badge, they will be dressing up!

Members of staff will be taking a little “trip to the movies,” as some Freeze Tag teammates will be dressing up as some of their favorite 80s movie characters. Whether you’re more of a Ferris Bueller or an Indiana Jones, we know you want to join in on the 8zees fun! Remember that players in attendance will be able to earn exclusive Traveling Team badges when they meet team members!

New Tags

To get you in the 8zees mood, we will be selling a brand new Personal Tag in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting today at 15:00 MHQ time. Inspired by National Video Game Day this past Monday (and our recent Joystick Munzee artwork!), this retro Personal Tag will get you right in that 8zees spirit. This tag is also available for the sale price of $8.88 in celebration of our 8th birthday!

Let’s turn back time and make some new Munzee memories!

Munzee on!

Join Us in California for Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash!

UPDATE: We’ve added a new Virtual Garden to the CA event area! Read below for more info! 

Munzee is turning 8 this year, and Friday, June 14 will kick off a whole eight weeks of birthday events! As we’ve announced, the Official Birthday Bash will take place in Tustin, CA with the California team this year! You can RSVP now to join Craig, Mick, Mari, and Tamara, as well as Matt, Dylan, and Emma flying in from MHQ, for an unforgettable 8th birthday bash on July 20!

Official Birthday Bash

All team members attending Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash on July 20th will be equipped with new badges for your scanning pleasure!

Players in attendance can earn exclusive Traveling Team Badges when they meet FT team members at events! Players at GeoWoodstock earned Texas license plates, but attendees at the CA Birthday Event can earn these retro Cali license plates. That’s the power of love!

We’re also happy to announce some awesome Virtual Gardens that all players can deploy in to get in on the birthday celebration fun even if they can’t make it out to the Golden State! Feel free to deploy in the Keytar and Magic 8 Ball gardens while there are still available spaces! Follow the links to the spreadsheets to help us grow these groovy gardens and if you need some help check out our “How to deploy in a Virtual Garden” help guide article!

UPDATE: With players filling up the Keytar and Magic 8 Ball gardens at a rapid pace, we decided to add a third garden to the area for your deploying pleasure! You can now deploy in the Controller garden, but you better act quick before spots fill up!

There’s nothing like the joy of CapOn points to get you in the birthday spirit! While we have yet to release a pink event pin, these gardens are both deployed near the event location. Stay tuned for the pink pin, which will be deployed sometime in the next week.

We will also be releasing more information about the birthday bash in the near future! For now, you can get started on earning CapOn points or picking out your best 80s attire (maybe dusting off some old boxes) if you plan to attend the event in person!

Don’t forget even if you can’t make it to California for our get together, there may be a Munzee event near you! Check out the Munzee Event Calendar and RSVP today!

Munzee with Matt!

If you’re unable to make it out to California, but still want to celebrate Munzee, luckily there are plenty of events to fuel your summer! (Or winter!) There will also be a number of opportunities to hang out with Matt, who will be attending the following Munzee events in July. He’ll also have exclusive Traveling Team Badges for each of his trips, so be sure to say hi!

Munzee Birthday Events Prepare to Commence!

Munzee is turning 8 next month, which means there are 8 weeks of birthday events to be enjoyed starting Friday! The 8zee’s (80’s) themed events will run from June 14 all the way through August 11 in order to offer plenty of opportunity to celebrate Munzee with your best retro attire!

While custom artwork is no longer available for the early birthday events (players booked it up fast!), we have awesome generic artwork packages available! Generic artwork packages cost $50 for an icon and $50 for a badge. Badges can be customized to include the event name, place and date. These retro designs are a great addition for your event attendees to earn! If your event is late July or August custom artwork is still a possibility.

We encourage players to keep adding events to the calendar, as there are plenty more chances to host over the next 8 weeks! There are 4 available packages for hosts to choose from, along with a unique host badge for each package!

There will also be an Attendee Badge to earn, as well as plenty of extras to scoop up during the celebrations!

Magic 8 Attendee – attend one of the 8zees birthday bash celebrations to earn this badge!

With birthday events kicking off this weekend, we can’t wait to see how players celebrate the 8zee’s! Remember the event host will choose a winner at each event based on best 80s attire. In order to earn the special badge for winning this costume contest, the event host must send the player name and photo taken at the event of the winning look to Louise. Unfortunately we will not be able to award any Best Dressed badges without those two pieces of information, so be sure to get them in!

Best Dressed 8zees badge- start planning your 80s outfits now for the chance to win!

Although Best Dressed winners will be chosen by event hosts, we want to see ALL OF YOU in your retro 80s attire! So share images to social media of your coolest throwback threads and be sure to use #8zees and tag us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter!

Two more great bits of news for event hosts! In the next few days you will notice new tools available for you to control your events more through the calendar admin section. You will be able to slightly tweak the coordinates for your pink pin, set cohosts, AND control your go live time. All of this is to allow event hosts the ability to adjust final details as needed. You will also be able to archive your event when it is over.

Also we are preparing to move your event communications to a new email address. Louise will be moving over the next few days to work from events@munzee.com — Current hosts will hear from her with details on events and future hosts will begin their communications at the new address. Thanks for your patience while we move her systems!

Munzee on!

Remember that the Official Birthday Bash will be held with the California team this year in Tustin, CA! There’s still plenty of time to RSVP and join the California Team, Matt, Dylan, and Emma in the Golden State!

Turn Back Time With Munzee Birthday Events!

The theme for our EIGHTH birthday event packages is the 8zee’s (80’s) so we’re looking to have a rockin’ retro time this summer!

As a reminder we will be hosting our Official Birthday Bash with the California team this year!
Tustin, CA: July 20, 2019- RSVP!

Get your events on the calendar (https://calendar.munzee.com/submit) and choose from one of the following packages. There are 4 available, each with a unique host badge!

There is a badge to be won at each event for the most retro 80s themed clothing, too. So dust off your leg warmers and ra-ra skirts, crimp your hair, polish your pixie boots, and above all else shine bright in something neon! If none of that made sense, that’s ok! Dress how you did in 1985! The event host will choose the winner, and you’ll also be featured on the blog. How rad is that?!

As always, there will be an Attendee Badge and plenty of extras! Get your events on the calendar, package requests in, and artwork suggestions in ASAP, especially if you’re hoping for merchandise, too. As our artists’ schedule starts to fill up, we will move to generic art options to avoid missing out on special event badges.

Introducing Cinema Places Munzees!

Seen any good movies lately? It may be too cold for some of you to do much hunting, but there are still ways to get out of the house, have fun, stay warm… and cap some points. Yes, I’m talking about going to the cinema. But what does that have to do with Munzee? I’m glad you asked. MHQ is pleased to announce the introduction of our latest type of Places Munzee: Cinemas!

Starting at 15:00 MHQ on February 25, the Cinema Places Munzees will be available for $10 in the Freeze Tag Online Store, along with all of the previous Places Munzees. Cinema Places Munzees can be deployed at movie theaters and cinemas around the world. Please note that stage theatres will not be accepted, and your submissions should be easily identifiable from Google Maps.

Like the other Places Munzees, Cinema Places Munzees will be deployed from players’ accounts in adherence to proper point and proximity structure. The Cinema Places Munzees will have a 1,000 ft capture radius. They will not be blastable, but they can be captured daily. You can access the Cinema Places Munzees by turning on your Places filter.

Points

  • Deploy: 40
  • Capture: 20
  • CapOn: 10

As a friendly reminder, Places Munzees must be verified by MHQ once they are submitted for deployment. Please allow up to 2 business days for approval before emailing support. You will receive an email with approval or rejection with a reason. Please bear with our support staff, and if they decline your submission, please work with them to locate the area for confirmation. For more details about Places Munzees, check out the help manual.

Cinema Places Munzees are the latest addition to the Places Munzees collection, which also includes Virtual Garden, Unique Attractions, Airport, Wildlife, Stadium, Museum, University, Faith, First Responder, Historical, Library, Post Office, Hospital, and Cemetery. Remember that you can buy one of each type of Places Munzee every 30 days, except for Virtual Garden Places Munzees which can be bought twice every 30 days. Like other Places Munzees, the Cinema Places Munzee counts towards the Places Capture and Streak badge lines.

What’s your favorite cinema snack? Ours is popcorn with a side of points!

Munzee on!

Letter From Zee Prez

Howdy Munzeers!

It’s time for a quick update on the overall progress and direction of Munzee! Over the past few months we’ve made some changes to the game and been working behind the scenes on a new version of the app. While I don’t have all of the details to share with you today I’d like to give you some information to help you know where we are headed.

As we move toward the 4.0 version of the Munzee app we are preparing many things behind the scenes. One of those is a much needed update to the point structure. In the beginning there was one type of Munzee, affectionately nicknamed the greenie. Other types were added over time with each becoming more and more valuable. The greenie sat in the shadows even though it is the cornerstone to the game. I want you to know that we have a plan for greenie points and it’s going to be rolled out soon. We love the greenie as much as you do and want to return the cornerstone to it’s place in the sun! In the meantime we will continue to update the point structure of many other types. You may notice the majority of point updates have happened to physical Munzee types. There is a purpose behind that as we know physical gameplay accomplishes our goals to get people active and moving. You will see us continue to drive the physical portion of the game forward since it is the majority of deploys worldwide, and always will be. Thanks for your patience during this big point update project.

Munzee 4.0 is a very large project as well. We aren’t quite ready to put it in the hands of beta testers yet, but we are feeling good about the progress through our alpha testing recently. The app is getting a complete makeover while the functionality you’ve come to expect will remain intact. The core gameplay is our focus while we also cleanup many side menus and organize features in a better way. We think you’re really going to enjoy it and can’t wait to get it out there in the field being tested. Stay tuned for more updates including information about beta testing and changes before the full launch of version 4.0.

I hope you’ve been participating in the variety of ways Munzee offers through gameplay options. We have events put on by players all of the world. Participate in Clan wars and join a group of 10 worldwide players to compete monthly in order to try and reach goals and win prizes. Recruiting for monthly clan wars is open on the 1st and 2nd of each month. You can also challenge yourself to complete our daily and weekly ZeeOps to earn prizes. We have plans to continue updating and evolving each of these interactive styles of gameplay after 4.0 launches and we can focus on each individually.

There are portions of the game you may think we’ve forgotten about, but believe me when I say that we have not. Munzee is huge and an intricate tapestry so we have to work on it one piece at a time currently! Remember our theme for the year? The Time Is Now! We remember and we’re working hard every day to make updates and keep things fresh. Please help us by growing the game and growing the map! The future of Munzee is so bright and we have so many great things in store. We can’t do any of this without our amazing Munzee community and we remember that fact daily. You are our focus.

Please contact us with questions, suggestions, and issues. My apologies if we don’t respond to every suggestion because we receive so many that we are really working on. The great ones might even make it into the game! I look forward to meeting some of you at upcoming events and interacting with others online!

Munzee On!

Mystery Munzee Point Increase!

If you’ve been paying attention, you may have noticed that we have slowly been rolling out point updates to a variety of different munzee types. We’re excited to announce that Mystery Munzee points are the latest to be updated! Starting NOW the points for Capturing, Deploying and Cap-Ons for Mystery and Mini Mystery Munzees has been increased to the following:

  • Deploy: 60
  • Capture and CapOn: Split 80 with a minimum of 20 as multiples of 5 (20/60, 30/50, 45/35, etc.)

With this point increase comes a merger of Mini Mysteries and Mysteries as well. Moving forward, both will just be called “Mysteries” regardless of their size**. Please note that this point increase is not retroactive, so past deploys and captures will not be increased.

In celebration of the new Mystery Munzee point structure we have a special offer in the Freeze Tag Online Store! From now until Wednesday at 23:59 MHQ if you buy two packs of Mystery Munzees (5 Pack) you’ll be given *additional stickers in each pack! To take advantage of this offer just buy a minimum of 2 Mystery Munzees in the online store, no code is necessary. Each additional set of 2 purchased will receive added free stickers.

The prevailing theory is that all these recent point increases are linked to the development of Munzee 4.0- and you wouldn’t be wrong in thinking that! Others seem to think the point increases are a drive to promote the physical side of Munzee gameplay and we agree with that theory as well! So stay tuned for more information regarding 4.0, point increases and more.

Munzee on!

*Free stickers will be a minimum $5 value for each order of 2 Mystery Munzee packs. They will be a mix of generic and pre-coded Munzee type stickers.
**Developer side note: the Munzee type code for mystery and minimystery has been combined and only one survives. This note is for those API developers who understand, the rest of us have no need to worry about this line. 😉
