Reset Evolution Munzees Inside the App!

We had a lot of information for you yesterday on all the changes for Elemental Munzees, so to make sure this update didn’t fly under the radar, we’ve decided to feature it in its very own blog post. As of the updates made yesterday, you can now reset Evolution Munzees inside the app!

How to Reset an Evolution Munzee

Previously, this functionality was only available on the Munzee website. If you need a refresher on that, you can check out the instructions in the Help Guide.

Anyone can reset any Evolution Munzee in the app, whether you own the munzee or not:

  • Navigate to the Munzee Details of the Evolution Munzee you would like to reset
  • Tap on the purple [Reset Evolution] button at the bottom of the screen
  • Confirm that you would like to use an Evolution Reset Credit in the following popup
  • That’s it!

Reset Evolution Munzee

 

Benefits of Resetting Evolution Munzees

As illustrated in our screenshots above, the main benefit of resetting an Evolution Munzee is that you will be able to capture stages of that munzee that you haven’t captured yet!

While that often means earlier stages for most players, the opposite can also apply: if the Evolution Munzee has variants at the final stage, such as the Flower Evolutions, resetting it will re-roll the dice! This means you could potentially cap all 5 of the Carnation Blossoms below from the same munzee!

Sound Familiar?

If you’ve been keeping up with our recent updates, you may notice we’ve done quite a few relating to this specific area of the app:

We are always trying to find ways to balance the advanced gameplay available on our website with the convenience — and unfortunately, smaller screen size — of our app. We hope this change accomplishes that, and that you look forward to the many more improvements to come!

Munzee on!

Munzee Event Safety Concerns

Like many around the world, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Although our real-world adventure game encourages players to explore the areas around them, the safety of our players is of paramount importance. 

At this moment we are not canceling any Munzee Events that hosts have put so much time and effort into planning. We instead will be extending the Fall Into Spring event time frame through May 31st, or later if necessary. So any themed event packages purchased can be rescheduled to a different time during this period. As always please reach out to Events Manager Louise Gibson by emailing her at events@munzee.com for all of your event needs.

We encourage hosts and players alike to use caution in the weeks to come regarding their own personal safety. We urge you all to stay safe and follow local guidelines in regards to large event gatherings. 

Regular gameplay can still be enjoyed around the world, but we do caution those in areas with higher risk of COVID-19 to use their best judgment when playing. Clan Wars will continue as planned, so we suggest players communicate with one another to help grow virtual gameplay for those worried about safety in their area. 

We thank you all for your support of our game. Our mission has always been to build community through active gameplay, but above all we must keep player safety as a top priority. We will continue to reassess the situation in the weeks to come. Stay safe and Munzee on.

Destination Renovation Explanation!

…renovating a MOTEL!???

If you build it, they will come. But what if you’ve already built it, and players have come and gone? Well we’re looking to do a little construction, so we’re excited to announce that Destination Renovations are now LIVE for Motel Munzees!

This new feature will allow players to renovate Motels and add additional rooms for even more capping fun. You’ll be able to renovate any Motel Munzee (whether you own it or not) on both the web and Munzee app. Find a breakdown of all the details below!

Star Struck:

Motel Munzees are now a star-based system. Each star ranking equals 5 rooms, so effective immediately all original Motel Munzees have been converted into 1-Star Motels. The icon images on the map are currently updating, but if you do see a “blank” or original Motel icon please note that, that is indeed a 1-Star Motel.

Renovating Motels will offer the following:

  • 1-Star Motel: 5 rooms (Standard Motel)
  • 2-Star Motel: 10 Rooms
  • 3-Star Motel: 15 Rooms

By renovating you could be a part of a 3-Star Motel that is now on par with Virtual Resorts in terms of number of rooms, but worth so many more points! Every time you Renovate a Motel you’ll earn 50 points as well, so get your construction hat on!

The Destination Renovation is currently only available for Motel Munzees, but it’s safe to say construction on other Destination Munzee types may break ground soon!

So how do you Renovate a Motel? Well first you’ll need a Destination Credit!

Destination Credit:

All Motel Munzee credits have now been converted into Destination Credits. Players will use Destination Credits to both convert generic munzees into Motels, and also to renovate Motels.

  • Converting a greenie into a Motel = 1 Destination Credit
  • Renovating a Motel = 1 Destination Credit per 5 rooms.

You may see that you already have Destination Credits in your inventory. These were previously Motel Credits you had earned, for many players. As more physical Destination types are allowed to renovate these types may also get converted into Destination Credits, but for now Destination credits can only be used for Motels. You can purchase Destination Credits in the Freeze Tag Online Store, so be sure to stock up in case you come across any full Motels!

A Note on Motel Munzee Stickers:

If you have pre-coded Motel stickers that have yet to be deployed, they should still work just fine! When you go through the deploy process, you’ll just see a 1-Star Motel pin in place of the old Motel pin. However, if you do run into any issues, sticker-related or otherwise, please e-mail support@munzee.com!

How To Renovate A Destination:

You’ll be able to renovate Motel Munzees in the app AND on the Munzee website!

Anyone can renovate a Motel Munzee in the app:

  • Navigate to the Munzee Details of the Motel you would like to renovate
  • Tap on the blue [Renovate Destination] button at the bottom of the screen
  • Confirm that you would like to use a Destination Credit in the following popup
  • That’s it!

Destination Renovation Screenshot

Only the player who owns the Motel, or ZeeQRew members will be able to renovate Motels on the Munzee Website:

  • Click [Edit Munzee] on the munzee you would like to renovate
  • Click [Renovate]
  • Click [Upgrade] on the level you would like to make the munzee
    • The number on the left is your inventory of Destination Credits
    • The number on the right is how many Credits it costs to renovate
  • Confirm that you would like to use a Destination Credit in the following popup
  • Success!

Benefits Of Destination Renovation:

Alongside an increase in CapOn points for Motel room owners there are a number of benefits for Renovating Munzees!

  • If you try to cap a Motel and find that it’s full, you can renovate it and then cap it again to get a room for yourself.
  • If you wanted to help friends or clan members get into a full motel, you can renovate it from any location in the world.
  • If your own Motel is full, you can renovate it to get more CapOn points from other players who might flock to get the new rooms.
  • If you’ve got a lot of Credits in stock, but no room to deploy Destination Munzees, this let’s you make your existing Motels even better!
  • Offer to renovate other players’ Motels in exchange for virtual trades!?! Help grow the worldwide community.
  • Make physical Destinations that require physical activity even MORE valuable!

We hope you’re as excited as we are for these new credits! We’re always looking for ways to refresh the map and add value to game pieces you may already own!

Take a walk around your neighborhood — maybe the landscape has already changed!

Munzee on!

Meet The New Girl + Heartbreaker Prize Weekend + Virtual Capture Booster Release!

If you’re looking forward to a Munzee-filled Valentine’s Day Weekend, we have some extra surprises for you that’ll spice things up including an addition to the Heartbreaker Family!
Exciting Update: ALL Heartbreakers will also land on Treehouses through Monday morning!

Green Heartbreaker Munzee

The Yellow Heartbreaker Munzee didn’t like being the third wheel, so we’re excited to introduce the new girl in town, the Green Heartbreaker Munzee! If you’d like to make her yours, she is available at the Freeze Tag Online Store as an individual product! That’s right, you can now have up to four different Heartbreaker types bouncing around the map!

This new temp POB will be available for purchase for $5 from now until 10:00 MHQ on Tuesday Feb 18th. Each player can purchase up to two Green Heartbreakers each day they are available, which will come in handy for our Heartbreaker Prize Weekend… but more on that in a bit!

Like the other Heartbreakers, the Green Heartbreaker is a temporary POB. Similar to her main squeeze, the Yellow Heartbreaker, she will bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. She will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on March 31, when she will be automatically archived on your account. If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

  • Deploy: 214 points
  • Capture: 214 points
  • CapOn: 100 points

While she may be a wallflower, she can blossom into the belle of the ball if she’s treated right! This shy and sweet Heartbreaker Munzee tiptoes to the following:

  • Greenies
  • All colors of Virtuals
  • Temporary Virtuals
  • Premium Munzees
  • Diamond
  • Ruby
  • Aquamarine
  • Topaz
  • Pink Diamond
  • Emerald (V)
  • Amethyst (V)
  • Sapphire (V)

Like her fellow Heartbreakers, she will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Heartbreaker on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Heartbreaker visits you. However, Heartbreakers are non-blastable. They will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on all colors of Virtual Munzees. You can access Heartbreakers under the “Only Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

All players who purchase a Green Heartbreaker will also receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Now that all of the couples are together the real party can start! There is also a new capture badge anyone can earn that includes the Green Heartbreaker! The badge appears as follows:

Heartbreakers- Capture one of each type of Heartbreaker Munzee.

Virtual Capture Booster

What better way to boost your hearts this holiday season than with the release of the Virtual Capture Booster Credits! This booster was previously not available anywhere in our app or in our online store, as it is perhaps the most powerful of the four Boosters. We wanted to keep its use in check, but for a limited time Virtual Capture Boosters will be available as prizes from capturing Heartbreaker Munzees!

Weekend Bonuses!

To complement the release of this newest booster, we decided to let the other 3 come out to play as well! This weekend, when a Heartbreaker Temporary POB is captured, both capper and deployer have a chance to earn a Booster Credit or a Sapphire Munzee in addition to their usual points. This includes the all NEW Virtual Capture Booster!

This special bonus will last from 00:01 on Feb 14 until 23:59 on Feb 16. Capping a Heartbreaker doesn’t guarantee you’ll get a prize, so try to cap as many Heartbreakers as you can this weekend! Remember, alongside the Green Heartbreaker you can get a Yellow, Pink, and Red Heartbreaker in the three respective MunzPaks to increase your chances of getting a prize! They will all stay on the map until the end of March.

We hope you won’t get a heart attack chasing after these mischievous Munzees!

Munzee On!

Zodiac Updates and NEW Munzee Credits!

Ready for some fun updates?! Today we’re happy to announce Western Zodiac point updates, as well as brand new Chinese Zodiac and Mystery Munzee credits!

Point Updates

As Clan Wars Battle #78 commenced on September 3 at 00:01 MHQ time, the point values for Western Zodiac Munzees all made a permanent change. Like the Chinese Zodiac Munzees, the Western Zodiacs are now all worth 20 points for Deploy, Capture, and CapOn. Their permanent point change is now as follows:

  • Capture: 20
  • Deploy: 20
  • CapOn: 20

Keep in mind that these values will double based on the Zodiac’s specified monthly timeframe. For example, it’s currently Virgo season (August 23- September 22), so all Virgo Western Zodiac Munzee’s will now be worth 40 points during this timeframe. For players focused on earning Zodiac points for Clan Wars, the remainder of the month will see double points action on Libra (September 23- October 22).

New Credits

In addition to the Western Zodiac point updates, the Chinese Zodiac and Mystery Munzees will now be available as credits for the first time! Since there are multiple “active” Chinese Zodiacs at any time, the credit will randomly convert to one of the active types when it is used. Remember that the Chinese Zodiac Munzees are worth double points based on the Zodiac’s specified day of the week. If you need help converting a munzee using credits, be sure to check out our Help Guide article!

For the time being, these credits have been launched in the PinPoints store. Yesterday we gave players a heads up that PinPoints store items would be shifting, so you can now find these brand new credits available for PinPoints purchase! For a full selection of the current PinPoints store items, you can check out the PinPoints catalogue. Keep in mind that these products change on a rotating basis, so if you see something you like, don’t hesitate to use your points!

Whether or not you engage in Clan Wars, we hope these updates will add more fun to the game!

Munzee on!
