NEW World Oceans Day Greeting Card and ZEE-Dayz Follow-up!

UPDATE: The Water Droplet Munzee has been removed from our ZEE-Dayz list. It has also been removed from the gallery below.

If you missed our post yesterday, we gave a preview of everything we’ve prepared for our ZEE-Dayz weekend! However, since the festivities start NOW we thought it’d be a good idea to give you a rundown. But first, let’s start with some totally new information!

We are happy to announce the World Oceans Day Greeting Card is now available for purchase! You can pick up Greeting Cards from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. You receive multiple munzees from your single purchase. Read the details in the store, or see below.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

By popular demand, the World Oceans Day Greeting Card is available HERE in the Freeze Tag Store! Think of it as the most reliable message in a bottle you’ll ever send!

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific note will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

This brings the current lineup of Greeting Cards available for purchase to the following:

  • Open Edition (will always be available; ONE Purchase yields FOUR munzees)
    • Birthday
    • Get Well
    • Thank You
    • Congrats
    • Sorry
    • Sorry 1
    • Sorry 2
    • Sorry 3
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Stay Home
    • World Oceans Day

As a refresher, the point structure for Greeting Cards is as follows:

  • Open Edition
    • Deploy: 50
    • Capture: 40
    • CapOn: 25
  • Limited Edition
    • Deploy: 60
    • Capture: 50
    • CapOn: 30

Remember that these munzees will be archived 7 days after they are deployed, so make sure your intended recipient captures it before then! Don’t forget these will also be worth double points for the weekend, so get catch a wave and get deploying!

For more information on the Greeting Cards, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Hydras Are Back in the Store!

Check them out HERE! You can get double deploy points on Hydras purchased during the period of 12:00 MHQ on Thursday June 4 to 23:59 MHQ on Monday June 8! Remember that you can purchase multiple of the base-level version of certain myths as of last month, which is perfect for owning all three types of Hydra variants. Now you don’t have to decide between a Ceberus or Cthulu, so be sure and stock up on Bouncer Upgrade Credits!

2x Points on Water-Based Myths!

Yesterday we gave you the list of myths in text form, so we put this gallery together for you visually-oriented players! Enjoy 2x the points on ALL activity for the munzees shown above for the period of 12:00 MHQ on Thursday June 4 to 23:59 MHQ on Monday June 8 (same period as Hydra sales)!

We hope you’re looking forward to a wonderful water-filled weekend!

Munzee on!

Whether you want to have 1 of each Hydra variant or a small squad of regular Hydras, we’ve got you covered!

We hope this weekend will go swimmingly for you!

Have a Magical Weekend with Mythological Mayhem!

To give the new Mythological Munzee Variants a warm welcome, we decided to make them the focus of this month’s ZEE-Dayz! Starting on 00:01 MHQ on Friday May 22, you will receive 2X the points on ALL activity on Leprechaun, Mermaid, Cyclops, and Nymph munzees — and of course, their variants are included in this as well! This bonus will last until 23:59 MHQ on Monday May 25!

We hope these bonuses add a little sparkle to both old and new Mythological Munzee friends! Remember that they can all land in Treehouse munzees if you’re unable to hunt them down in the wild, and some of them can also land in the newly-released Skyland munzee as well! Check the Help Guide for specifics!

Keep safe and Munzee on!

Sound Off in Our New Survey!

Back in September, we circulated a survey with some questions we had about Munzee gameplay. We got a great number of responses, and released some of the results when the survey period ended in October. The team found the results extremely valuable, since they let us know which areas we were on track in, and which we need to work on. We also came up with more ideas to improve the game based on the results. After doing a lot of brainstorming for this year, we have a ton of ideas we’d like to run by you, the players!

The link to the survey is HERE.

To sweeten the deal, we’ll be doing another random prize drawing! Like in our previous survey, you can submit your username at the end for an entry.

The survey will be closed at the end of February (Leap Day). We are looking forward to hearing from everyone!

Munzee On!

Introducing the Treehouse and Magnet Burnout!

There are about to be a lot of happy Player Owned Bouncer owners, because our latest map addition is targeted to increase the number of caps on POBs while decreasing the clutter on the map. More points and less mess— what is this awesome new munzee called?! Please welcome the Treehouse Munzee to the map!

Treehouse Munzee

The Treehouse Munzee is a physical Destination Munzee that allows up to 6 POBs to land on it. This all new munzee fits into the Destination line of munzee types, but it also contains the ability to be captured once per player per 24 hour MHQ day just like Places Munzees! That’s right, the Treehouse Munzee means plenty of capping opportunities.

Does this extra special munzee sound familiar at all to some of you? Players who purchased the MHQ Bash King’s Court package have been awarded a Treehouse Munzee credit, which was included in the package as a new in-game item. The rest of you will have to wait a short time to pick up your Treehouse Munzees! They will be made available for purchase to the public sometime in the next week, but you can read about them now! Players will also be able to cap Treehouses deployed by King’s Court purchasers in the meantime, so there is still fun to be had!

Points:

  • Deploy: 100 points
  • Cap: 10 points + points for whatever POBs are in the Treehouse at the time of capture.
  • CapOn: 25 points

The deploy circle for Treehouses will be 1,000 feet (304.8 m) from the nearest Treehouse, all other normal 50/150 feet proximity rules apply. To access the Treehouse Munzee, turn on your Physical filter and find it under “Destinations”. It’s also included in the Premium filters under “All Mythologicals” and “All Expiring Specials”.

Please note the following special information about the Treehouse Munzee:

  • The Treehouse Icon will change to show the number of POBs hanging out. Players will see the base icon for 0, but then a 1-6 as more bouncers stop by.
  • This munzee can be capped once daily regardless of the number of POBs hanging out. New POB landings do NOT refresh the capture setting.
  • A Treehouse will attract up to 6 POBs over time, but you can use a physical Munzee Magnet to draw a total of 6 POBs much quicker.
  • Only physical Myths and Variants will land on a Treehouse (No MOBs, TOBs, Pouch Creatures, Fancy Flats, or virtual Myths).
  • The Regular POB timer is still in effect. If a POB times out, it leaves the Treehouse and leaves an open spot for others to join.

Why use a Treehouse? This extra special munzee has the following awesome advantages:

  • Quick and high points
  • Easy access to multiple POB caps at once
  • The ability to share the love with other POB owners
  • Achieve POB clan requirements quicker

The Treehouse Munzee does not have a badge line at this time, but it will count toward the overall Destination capture line the first time you cap it. That means daily caps will not count toward badges, only the first time you cap it.

For more information about the Treehouse Munzee, how to deploy it, and exactly what types will land on it, check out our Help Guide article!

Magnet Burnout

In addition to the Treehouse Munzee, we’re excited to announce that we have removed the purchase limit on both physical and virtual Munzee Magnets! Now players can buy as many Munzee Magnets and Virtual Magnets as they like from the Freeze Tag Online Store. 

However, with the new update Greenies and Virtuals will only be able to be magnetized 3 times a day. After that, the munzee will be “burned out” and unable to be magnetized until the next MHQ day. This “burn out” is 3x per player, per MHQ day. In addition, we’ve made a small improvement to save space, so now when you magnetize a munzee, the magnet button will disappear until the magnet expires. That way there is more room to display the bouncer information!

The Magnet Burnout was created to encourage players to keep moving and not just magnetize the same munzee over and over again. There will be a timer on the burned out munzee to show how long you have to wait until it can be magnetized again!

Are you ready to have some fun with this awesome new game addition? Don’t forget to pick up the awesome new Treehouse munzee when it releases! For now watch the map and see if one gets deployed somewhere near you! You can also stock up on some Magnets and catch those bouncers!

Munzee on!

*Please note that when Treehouses go on sale to the public players will be limited to one purchase every 14 days.

Spooky Season is in Full Swing With Monster Nomads and Monzter Mash Week!

Why is a skeleton so mean? He doesn’t have a heart! Luckily we do, which is why we’re celebrating Halloween the right way with our brand new Monster Nomads launching tomorrow at 00:01 MHQ time! Are you ready to hear all the terrifyingly awesome details?

Monster Nomad MOBs

Our latest specials will run from 00:01 MHQ time on October 24 through 23:59 MHQ time on November 3. The Monster Nomads will feature 3 physical MOBs that land on Greenies and Premium Munzees. They will bounce around every 6 hours or when captured. The Mummy Mitt, Werewolf Paw, and Frankenstein Fingers will all be attracted to Munzee Magnets on Greenies to increase your chances of capping these high-point munzees.

Points
  • 666 points to both Capture and Host

There will be 30 specials total, aka 10 of each type. You can access these rare specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges & Personal

Monster hunting is no easy work, which means that it only seems fitting to award players with badges for their efforts. There will be 2 badges you can earn based on Monster Nomad captures. The first in the series will appear as follows:

Haunted Hitchhiker– Capture one Monster Nomad special of any type.

Is Halloween your favorite time of the year? Do you love everything about spooky season? Well we have just the Personal tag for you! You can shop our Monster Nomad Personal from the Freeze Tag Online Store for an extra dose of all things Halloween!

Munzee Community Gives Back to North Texas Food Bank!

Munzee is awesome for many reasons, but the players are certainly one of the best parts! Our recent Bash weekend started things off in the best way possible with a community food drive donation! We asked players to bring food donations to Bash Registration  for us to donate to the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB).

Members of the North Texas Food Bank arrived at MHQ to pick up all of the player donations collected at Bash

Players then earned a spin on the IRL Prize Wheel for every 4 canned food items or 1 jar of peanut butter they brought, for a maximum of 3 spins per player. It was a win-win situation that created fun for all while giving back to an excellent cause. And thanks to player generosity, we’re happy to announce that we collected an impressive stack of donations!

Together we collected a total of 369 necessary food item donations! They included:

  • 83 jars of peanut butter
  • 277 cans of food
  • 9 bags of rice and oatmeal

In addition to the food donations, a $600 monetary donation was also made out to the NTFB on behalf of Freeze Tag. Funds for this donation were gathered from a portion of profits from our Peony garden pins ($500) and Peony Personal tags ($100). A big thank you goes out to all players who brought food items or supported the donations through their Peony purchases!

North Texas Food Bank

The NTFB is a local social benefit organization that distributes donated food to North Texans in need. In North Texas, 1 in 6 people don’t have a reliable source of daily food. Every dollar donated to the NTFB is able to provide three meals to families, children, and seniors in North Texas. These nutritious meals are distributed with the support of the community, so the money earned from the Peony sales will personally bring 1,800 meals to North Texans in need!

Thanks again for helping us support this awesome cause! We love seeing what can happen when our community comes together.

Munzee on!

Peanut butter is one of the most requested NTFB donation items.

Vacation Condos Mean There’s a New Destination Munzee in Town!

Planning on taking any trips? Luckily there is a new place for you to book your stay! Our latest Destination Munzee is here to offer available rooms to players, so please welcome the Vacation Condo Munzee to the map today at 10:00 MHQ time! You can pick up the Vacation Condo Munzee from the Freeze Tag Online Store for $5 each. There is NO limit on purchase quantity per player. We’ve also removed the monthly limits on resort purchases as of now. You can shop the entire Destination Collection HERE!

The Vacation Condo Munzee will be joining the Motel, Hotel, virtual Resort, and Timeshare as the latest Destination Munzee.  For those that don’t know, in the US and Canada a condominium (condo for short) is an independently sellable living space that is otherwise similar to an apartment building. The difference is condominiums can be leased for shorter terms and are often used as vacation or rental properties. Like its predecessors, the virtual Vacation Condo will be a more complex Munzee type that offers the benefits of multiple munzees in one location without additional stickers by allowing players to “rent” out available “rooms.” Ready to hear about the Vacation Condo details?

Vacation Condo Details

The virtual item will appear as coral colored (above left) for the primary icon and mint colored (above right) for the room icon. This new Munzee type is like a mix of the Timeshare Munzee and Virtual Resort Munzee. This virtual features 5 rooms, so the first 5 players to cap the Vacation Condo get a room deployed*. Here’s the kicker though, rooms only stay deployed for 30 days.

At the end of 30 days the rented room is archived and a new room is then available for the first player to cap the Vacation Condo. This new room will be available for any player, including the person who just had their room archived, which means after 30 days you can recap to earn another room! This becomes an endless capping and deploying option as you travel, or within your hometown.

Proximity: A Vacation Condo must be at least 2,500 feet (762 meters) away from any other Vacation Condos and 500 feet (152.4 meters) away from Virtual Resort Munzees.

Rooms: There are 5 rooms available in the Vacation Condo. After 30 days a rented room will be archived and a new room will become available.

Deploy: 100 points, 10 points for room owner

Capture Radius: 500 feet (same as Resort), not blastable

Capture: 40 points, then 20 points per room rented (a full condo = 140 points)

CapOn: 80 points for Vacation Condo owner, 40 points per owner of a room.

Please keep in mind that the Vacation Condo must be deployed in-app and you must be at the location you want it to be deployed. It cannot be deployed online. To access the Vacation Condo, turn on your “Virtual – Destination” filter or select the “Premium – All Vacant Rooms” filter. For more information on how to deploy a Vacation Condo (or Virtual Resort), you can check out our Help Guide article

Destination Points Updates

The launch of the Vacation Condo today at 10:00 MHQ time also corresponds with a point update for ALL physical Destination Munzees! The point values for the Motel, Hotel, and Timeshare will all be doubled, while the points for virtual Resorts will remain the same. If you’re interested in earning these new deploy points, don’t forget about the SWAP feature on your OLD motels and hotels! That means tons of Clan Wars points for swapping, since this creates a NEW deploy!

The points for Motels will now be updated as follows:

  • Capture: 20 points per Motel, 20 points per room
  • CapOn for the owner: 10 points per room filled + 10 points for Motel, 100 points if full
  • CapOn for room owner: 50 – 10 depending on which room is owned. Here is some detailed math if you are interested. ((# of rooms filled + 1) – (room number)) x 10
  • Deploy: Motel 100 points, Room- 50 points

The points for Hotels will now be updated as follows:

  • Capture: 40 points per Hotel, 16 points per room
  • CapOn for the owner: 10 points per room filled + 10 points for Hotel, 150 points if full
  • CapOn for room owner: 100 – 10 depending on which room is owned. Here is some detailed math if you are interested. ((# of rooms filled + 1) – (room number)) x 10
  • Deploy: Hotel 150 points, Room- 100 points

The points for Timeshares will now be updated as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points for Timeshare, 25 points per room
  • CapOn: 100 points for Timeshare owner, 40 points for the owner of a room
  • Deploy: Timeshare 100 points, 10 deploy points for room owner when a room is deployed

The points for Resorts will remain the same: 

  • Capture: 15 points per Resort, 5 points per room — Total ranges from 15 points (no rooms filled yet) to 90 (all 15 rooms filled)
  • CapOn for the owner: 3 points per room filled + 3 points for Resort, 50 points if full
  • CapOn for room owner: 45 – 3 depending on which room is owned. Here is some detailed math if you are interested. ((# of rooms filled + 1) – (room number)) x 3
  • Deploy: 50 points

Badges

Lastly, the Vacation Condo Munzees will have their own line of badges that will be added to the Destination Munzee category. You will be able to earn badges for both capture and deploy for a total of 6 new badges! The first badge in both the capture and deploy lines will appear as follows:

Destination Designs

Once you have your Destination booked, you’ve got to travel in style! We have a new line of Personal Tags and Custom Luggage Tags featuring the different Destination Munzee types. You can find these in the Freeze Tag Online Store as well, but quantities are limited! Please note that the luggage tags do not come with a personal code on them, but instead feature your name and address. These details will be pulled directly from your shipping address in the order details.

Ready to rent some rooms or book your next 30 day stay? We’re so excited to see where everyone starts deploying their new Vacation Condos. A big thank you for helping grow the map in new and unique ways!

Munzee on!

*Please note that the advanced deploy circles on the website are not currently available for the Vacation Condo, but will be soon. We appreciate your patience.

Announcing Survey Results and Selected Winners!

Last month we released a poll requesting player feedback, and we’re happy to report that the responses were plentiful! Today we’re going to share some of the general consensuses gathered from the survey, as well as announce the participating survey players who were randomly selected to receive prizes. A big thank you goes out to everyone who took the time to send us your feedback in an effort to make Munzee the best player experience as possible! We’re excited to share with you what fellow players had to say about gameplay!

Survey Winners

Before we get into the survey feedback, let’s first announce the winners! Though players were able to submit the survey anonymously, those who entered their usernames were all submitted to a randomized prize drawing. We’re happy to announce that the following 10 players were all randomly selected to be awarded 2 Virtuals, 2 virtual colors, 1 virtual Joystick, and 1 Blast Cap! The lucky winners are:

  • ACCLanMan
  • gingercurlz
  • janzattic
  • jurikvandspol
  • madewell
  • OldSchoolSkater
  • SolWalk74
  • ufrie
  • xCrooksy
  • TX_Diva

Congratulations to these 10 players for being randomly selected! Your prizes have been added to your accounts!

Survey Feedback

The results are in! While we won’t be revealing all of our player feedback for the sake of brevity, we are excited to share several key things we learned from player responses. Due to a very large sample size, the following results have terrific projectability and a very low margin of error of only 1-2%. That means we are thrilled to place a confidence level of 95% on the following results.

Favorite Part of Gameplay

We asked players to reveal their favorite part of Munzee gameplay, and it turns out that the majority of players (66.6%) prefer both physical and virtual gameplay equally, striking a comfortable balance. 21.3% of players preferred strictly virtual play, while only 12.1% enjoyed just physical play. It appears that many players enjoy mastering the many aspects of Munzee. 

Rate of Release 

With different munzees released at a fairly consistent rate, we decided to see if players were overwhelmed or underwhelmed by any release rates.  It turns out that players reported the rate of release being “just right” for new Munzee Owned Bouncers (52.69%), Player Owned Bouncers (48.66%), and permanent Munzee types (54.03%). These statistics reveal that the majority of players are quite pleased with current gameplay release rates. 

Biggest Benefit of Munzee 

Here at Munzee, we’re all about playing your way, which led us to ask a very important question that yielded some pleasant results: what do you think is the biggest benefit of playing Munzee? Turns out that the most players enjoy keeping active (45.3%), followed by exploring new areas (27.6%), collecting different game pieces (10.3%), and meeting new people/players (9.7%).

Thanks again to all players who took the time to respond to the survey and provide feedback! We love hearing your ideas, suggestions, and feedback. We’ll keep all of these results in mind for future expansion and releases! 

Munzee on!
