New Mechs for Oktoberfest!

Nothing quite rings in the fall season like Oktoberfest! We love the festivities so much that in 2013, it was the theme for first MHQ Bash — if you were around last year, you may remember our Bash from the Past special that was a throwback to that time. We featured Oktoberfest again in 2017’s MHQ Bash. Since we won’t be able to celebrate as we usually do, we designed some new Munzee Mechs to bring the party to you! Please welcome SteinBot and CarafeBorg!

NEW Mech Details

SteinBots and CarafeBorgs are temporary POBs that will remain on the map until they have been captured 5 times. The SteinBot is available at the Freeze Tag Store HERE. The CarafeBorg will be available in the In-App Store! When you purchase a SteinBot or CarafeBorg, you will receive a fully-built SteinBot or CarafeBorg that auto-deploys. You will also receive the Blueprint to rebuild it when you have earned enough Cogs in the future. These Mechs will be available until 12:00 MHQ on Thursday, October 7th.

Points

  • Deploy: 500
  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 100
  • Crush (5th Cap): 500

You can find these droid drink makers serving orders at the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

SteinBots and CarafeBorgs will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture SteinBots and CarafeBorgs on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same SteinBot or CarafeBorg visits you. SteinBots and CarafeBorgs are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access SteinBots and CarafeBorgs by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” filter.

When a SteinBot is captured, it will scatter up to 3 Botwursts. Similarly, when a CarafeBorg is captured, it will scatter up to 3 Dronuts.

These will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the SteinBot or CarafeBorg owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn rewards for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes, have a capture radius of 300 feet, and you’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well. These scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Botwursts and Dronuts are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 25 points

Badges

Deploying a SteinBot or a CarafeBorg will earn you the corresponding Blueprint badge. You can see these badges below.

There is also a line of capture badges that you can earn for SteinBot, Botwurst, CarafeBorg or Dronut Munzee captures! You can see the first badge in this line below.

We hope these mechs help keep you hydrated during the festivities!

Munzee on!

Sweet ZEE-Dayz for Roald Dahl!

Roald Dahl’s works are definitely among our childhood favorites, so for this year’s Roald Dahl Day, we’ve turned it into a week-long celebration! New products and a special badge are available starting today, and tomorrow we’ve got a special boost for Skylands. Read on to get the deets!

NEW Greeting Card

We are happy to announce 1 NEW Limited Edition Greeting Card is available for purchase through Monday, September 20th at 15:00 MHQ! 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.

Tell someone they deserve to eat something tasty with a Sweet Treats Card!

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!

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

  • 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!

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

Special Urban Camo Packs

We’ve also got a delicious limited-edition pack of Urban Camo Generics available in the Freeze Tag Store! Please note that these are limited to 1 per player, and as they are limited-edition once our current stock is gone, they will be removed from the store.

As you can see in the images above, the pack includes 4 candy-colored designs x 5 = 20 total stickers perfect for a sweet shoppe near you!

10 of these limited-edition packs will contain a special Golden Ticket munzee, which works as follows:

Golden Ticket Sticker
Golden Ticket Munzee Sweet Treats Scatter

The Golden Ticket munzee is a physical game piece. When a Golden Ticket is captured, up to 3 Sweet Treats will scatter nearby, visible only to the capper. The Sweet Treats will be deployed on the Golden Ticket owner’s account! This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The points for these munzees are as follows:

  • Golden Ticket
    • Capture: 64
    • CapOn: 71
    • Deploy: 1,964 (for the year of Dahl’s book)
  • Sweet Treat:
    • Capture: 50
    • CapOn: 30

Badges

There are two special badges you can earn:

  • Chance upon deploying a Sweet Treats Greeting Card
  • Chance upon capturing a Sweet Treats Greeting Card
  • Guaranteed upon deploying a Golden Ticket munzee
  • Chance upon capturing a Sweet Treats Scatter

While they will be more difficult to earn once the limited-edition items leave the store, Sweet Treats Greeting Cards can be deployed at any time in the future, and Golden Ticket munzees will be permanent additions to the map. This means there will still be a (very small!) possibility to earn these badges afterwards.

Skyland Boost Details

From the period of Tuesday, September 14th at 00:01 MHQ through Sunday, September 19th at 23:59 MHQ, enjoy increased capacity and double points on Skylands!

They’ll be able to hold up to 10 bouncers instead of the usual 6, and deploy/capture/capon points for the Skyland — NOT the bouncers it holds — will be doubled!

Want to spread the sugary goodness with more Skylands or any of the other items mentioned above? You can shop the entire collection HERE!

We hope you indulge your sweet tooth this week!

Munzee on!

Yo, Ho, Ho! A RUM ZEE-Dayz!

Can you believe the last time we had a proper ZEE-Dayz was in May? We’ve had some bonus days tied to the 10th Birthday Mailbox, so you may not even have noticed, but man, time flies! As in previous ZEE-Dayz we’ve got some special badges for you to earn! Read on to get the deets!

Double Points Details

In celebration of National Rum Day, From the period of Monday, August 16th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, August 22nd at 23:59 MHQ, enjoy double points on ALL Reseller Munzees!

This bonus is not limited to Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs) — ALL munzees that are exclusive to Resellers are included! Here’s a list you can refer to:

Limited-Time Badges

For the same period as double points, you can earn a special badge for capturing a certain number of Reseller Munzees, and another for deploying a certain number of Reseller Munzees. Please note that although scatters from Reseller Munzees will be worth double points, they will not contribute towards the badges — we didn’t want to make them too easy to get! You can see what these badges look like below!

We’ll keep the exact requirement for the capture badge a secret, but it shouldn’t be too hard to get!

Reseller Reminder

Want to stock up on Reseller Munzees? We always keep the list of links to our active Resellers on our website HERE, but for your convenience, we’ve made their banners below clickable:

We hope the RUMs flow freely for you this week!

Munzee on!

Birthday QRates in the Wild?!

Nine days ago, we revealed what was waiting inside the Birthday Qrate for Tier 3 10th Birthday Mailbox members — the MechaniC4K3! It definitely caught your attention with its high deploy points, and we were happy to see it was an enjoyable surprise! Of course, we didn’t want to leave the rest of the players out indefinitely, so we thought it would be nice to release the Blueprints (just the Blueprints, no auto-deployed tPOB) in a slightly different Birthday QRate for all!

What’s Different?

Here’s a handy chart to make it easy to compare:

Wild Birthday QRate 10th Birthday Mailbox Birthday QRate All other QRates
Where to find Greenies, Physical Elementals (Fire, Ice, Earth, Water) 10th Birthday Mailbox Tier 3 Day 3 Greenies
Need Empty Slot? Yes No – came with a temporary slot Yes
Cap Requirements 100 physical munzees 25 physical munzees 100, 124, or 160 physical munzees, depending on type
Prize Pool MechaniC4K3 Blueprint, NEW Cubimal, 5-pack of certain Greeting Cards Auto-deployed MechaniC4K3 + MechaniC4K3 Blueprints guaranteed Cubimal, Booster, other Credits

Or, if you prefer some slightly more detailed info in list form:

  • Birthday QRates can be found when capturing physical Elementals (Fire, Ice, Earth, Water) in addition to Greenies — other QRates can only be found when capturing Greenies
  • It will require an empty slot to be found — the 10th Birthday Mailbox’s Birthday QRate came with a temporary slot, if all your slots were full
  • It will require 100 physical munzee captures to open — the 10th Birthday Mailbox’s Birthday QRate only required 25 captures
  • Upon opening the QRate, there is a chance to receive the MechaniC4K3 Blueprint, but it is NOT guaranteed — the 10th Birthday Mailbox’s Birthday QRate is guaranteed to deploy a fully-built MechaniC4K3 AND award the Blueprint
    • Other prizes in the prize pool include a previously unreleased Cubimal, and 5-packs of certain Greeting Cards
    • If you already own the MechaniC4K3 Blueprint (i.e. if you are a Tier 3 10th Birthday Mailbox member) you will receive one of the other prizes

Please note that these Birthday QRates will only be available until 23:59 MHQ on July 31st. Good luck to those seeking out the MechaniC4K3 Blueprints!

We hope you enjoy the other prizes in the pool as well!

Munzee on!

Birthday QRate Spoiler!

If you’re a Tier 3 member of the 10th Birthday Mailbox, there’s a reason why the requirements are set to just 25 physical captures — we wanted you to open it ASAP! Inside the Birthday QRate, you will receive a fully-built MechaniC4K3 that auto-deploys. You will also receive the Blueprint to rebuild it as many times as you like with the Cogs you’ve earned from Daily ZeeOps. Remember that you’ll need to head to the Redeem Store to do so!

MechaniC4K3 Details

The MechaniC4K3 is a temporary POB. It will deploy on your account when you complete the requirements to open the Birthday QRate awarded from the 10th Birthday Mailbox. The mailbox must be capped on July 3rd 00:01-23:59 MHQ time to receive the Birthday QRate. It will stay on the map until it has been captured 10 times, when it will be archived on your account. After the tenth capture a MechaniC4K3 will be “crumbled” which results in more points for the capper.

MechaniC4K3 will bounce to certain virtual munzees (listed below) for the first 9 captures, but after being capped 9 times it will land on a physical munzee where it can now be crumbled. If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

Points

  • Deploy: 1,000
  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 150
  • Crumble (10th Cap): 500

You can find these terrifying treats rolling to the following landing pads every 3 hours or when captured:

  • Greenies
  • Mysteries
  • Elementals:
    • Fire Mystery
    • Air Mystery
    • Electric Mystery
  • Zodiacs:
    • Cancer Western Zodiac
    • Rabbit Chinese Zodiac
    • Anubis Egyptian Zodiac
  • All Virtual Colors
  • Gaming:
    • Surprise
    • Sir Prize Wheel
      • Does not award prizes when capturing again
  • Places:
    • Entertainment
    • Drink Depot

MechaniC4K3 will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture MechaniC4K3s on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same MechaniC4K3 visits you. MechaniC4K3s are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access MechaniC4K3s by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

Deploying a MechaniC4K3 will earn you the Blueprint badge shown below. There is also a line of capture badges that you can earn for MechaniC4K3 captures! You can see the first badge in this line below.

We hope you enjoy unwrapping Day 3 of the 10th Birthday Mailbox! Make sure to cap it each day so you don’t miss out!

Otherwise, if you still haven’t joined the club yet and would like to do so now, click HEREIf you purchase a Tier 3 membership TODAY you can still get a Birthday QRate as long as you deploy and cap your 10th Birthday Mailbox before 23:59 MHQ time on July 3rd.

Lastly, if you want to check out what today’s Greeting Card looks like, or review past day’s goodies, you can check out the blog post HERE. Please note that that blog post may not immediately have the latest info as we cannot pre-schedule updates, but we’ll do so as soon as we can!

RUMbots and Blueprints and Cogs! Oh my!

Last month’s Spyderbot Squashing Initiative was successful in decreasing the number of Spyderbots on the map, but without changes to the Spyderbots themselves, the numbers have climbed back up again. To keep the bouncers more varied and fun for players to chase after, we’ve created a new credit called a “Cog” which will replace the Spyderbot as the Day 7 Daily ZeeOps reward.

Paired with Blueprints, you’ll be able to use those Cogs to deploy new tPOBs of your choosing. If you started playing Munzee more than half a year ago, you’ll be happy to know that past Blueprints you’ve collected will be of use! However, please note that tPOBs deployed using this new system have been rebuilt to offer a more consistent experience. This means things like point values and scatters remain the same as the originals, but expiration triggers and badge lines are different. If you missed out on any of those past Blueprints, you’ll find some of them available in the Freeze Tag Store. Like many of our other items, Blueprint availability will be on rotation.

If you have the right Blueprint, instead of using the 5 Cogs you’ll receive upon completing your Day 7 Daily ZeeOps mission to deploy a Spyderbot, now you have the option of saving up Cogs to deploy something more powerful, like a *L.A.S.E.R. Shark. The choice will be yours within the options given.

Don’t worry if you have any Spyderbots out on the map — those will remain. As mentioned above, moving forward Daily ZeeOps will award Cogs instead of the Spyderbot directly. Of course, not all tPOBs are created equal, so different amounts of Cogs are required to convert to each tPOB type.

You’ll find all the details and conversion rates at munzee.com/redeem. These rewards/rates may change from time to time. You will see your available list of blueprints on the Redeem page. If you don’t see the blueprint you’ll need to find the location to purchase or earn it. Cogs are currently only available as Daily ZeeOps rewards, but this may change in the future. There are many options out there for us to use and award these Cogs as prizes!

RUMBot Details

What better way to launch Cogs than with some new tPOBs to build? To continue support of our Authorized Resellers, we’ve developed RUMbots! Please welcome these very special swashbucklers color-coded to match each Reseller’s shop!

Similar to the Spyderbot, RUMbots are temporary POBs that will remain on the map until they have been captured 5 times. They will be available at our Authorized Resellers’ shops some time today. When you purchase a RUMbot  from a Reseller, you will receive a fully-built RUMbot that auto-deploys. You will also receive the Blueprint to rebuild it when you have earned enough Cogs in the future. Interested? You can get links to shop all of our resellers HERE!

Points

  • Deploy: 300
  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 100

You can find these worldly warriors sailing to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

RUMbots of ANY type will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture RUMbots on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same RUMbot visits you. RUMbots are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access RUMbots by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

Deploying a RUMbot will earn you the Blueprint badge. You can see the badge for the Gold’n Coins RUMbot as an example below.

There is also a line of capture badges that you can earn for RUMbot captures! You can see the first badge in this line below.

We hope you look forward to dueling these droids!

Munzee on!

 

*The 3 L.A.S.E.R. Shark blueprints will only be available through completing the Secret ZeeOps. Did you miss out on one of them? Stay tuned…

Oh, ZEE Places You’ll Go During This Month’s ZEE-Dayz!

Last year we kicked off our first official ZEE-Dayz with a very popular double radii weekend! We think it’s been a good amount of time since then, so this year, on top of double radii, we’ve got some special badges for you to earn and more! Read on to get the deets!

Double Radii Details

From the period of Thursday, May 20th at 12:00 MHQ through Monday, May 24th at 23:59 MHQ, enjoy double capture radii on ALL Places and Flats excluding Fancy Flats!

To ensure you’ve got a lot of Places to go to, we’ve sweetened the deal with…

Limited-Time Badges

For the same period as double radii, you can earn a special badge for capturing a certain number of Places, and another for deploying at least 1 Place (since the deploy process is a bit more involved than other types). You can see what these badges look like below!

We’ll keep the exact requirement for the capture badge a secret, but it shouldn’t be too hard to get!

New Items in the Store!

A new collection featuring the limited-time badge art will be available in the Freeze Tag Store!

As you can see in the image above, the collection includes a NEW personal tag, along with all the gear you need for a trip! Also, this is a friendly reminder that we released 2 new Places and a personal tag earlier in the week!

Rover’s Ability Boosted!

For the same period as double radii, you will be able to send Rover to capture Emeralds, Sapphires, Citrines, and Onyxes that are out of the original range, but within double the original range using Rover Treats! To clarify, normally only Amethysts and virtual scattered munzees are eligible to have their capture radius extended — the remaining four virtual Jewels will be eligible until 23:59 MHQ on May 24!

Remember that the popup to send Rover to capture a munzee will only appear if you are out of the original range, so make sure to keep an eye out!

If you don’t have a Rover with you and there aren’t any nearby for you to pick up, you can purchase one from the Freeze Tag Store HERE, or if you’re on your Munzee-playing device, you can purchase it in the In-App Store HERE. To learn more about how Rover works visit our Help Guide articles HERE!

We hope you enjoy going places this weekend!

Munzee on!

Roverhaul Part 3!

Roverhaul Part 1 gave Rover the ability to dig up Jewel Shards while accompanying you on Jewel-capping sessions. Roverhaul Part 2 gave Rover the ability to extend your capture radius with Rover Treats. What does Roverhaul Part 3 have in store? A combination of the two!

Another Trick in Rover’s Toolkit!

When you capture the last stage of a Physical Trail Munzee while a Rover is with you, you have a chance of finding a Rover Treat! In addition, the deployer of the trail will also receive a Rover Treat! After all, the deployer did go to the effort of deploying and maintaining their Trail, which is not an easy feat!

Please note that this is only for Physical Trails. The chance of finding Rover Treats may spread to other types in the future!

The popup that appears after you’ve captured the final stage of a Trail will let you know if Rover has found any, so make sure to keep an eye out! You will also find them on your credits list.

Of course, if you need more Rover Treats, you can pick them up in the In-App Store for 40 Zeds, or get a pack of 10 Rover Treats in the Freeze Tag Store for $3.

As we continue to refine and improve the Munzee app, expect more Rover-related news!

Munzee on!

Updates to Quick Deploy and MORE in the App!

UPDATE: There was a mix-up involving the build number and our first note in bold red text below — it’s been corrected now!

Earlier in the year, we updated the Munzee Website with some improvements to the Quick Deploy process, which received a lot of positive feedback! We knew the next step was to bring over similar improvements to the app, so here’s a rundown of what you’ll find in the latest OTA (over-the-air) update! The build will be #736 — try restarting your app to see if it downloads!

An Improved Quick Deploy Experience!

Now, when you hold down the green pin button, instead of a list of each undeployed munzee ordered from newest to oldest, they are now grouped by type, along with a confirmation pop up to avoid accidental deploys, as you can see below:

In addition, the screens above will only show munzees that have never been deployed. We thought this change would be more convenient for players as most previously deployed munzees will require you to be within a certain range of where they were originally deployed to redeploy them. If you do need to redeploy a munzee, you can still access it by navigating to your Profile –> [Inventory] –> [Undeployed Munzees].

You may recall that the old Quick Deploy process allowed you to view the map while you chose which munzee to deploy. While that is no longer the case, we did make another tweak that should be a good compromise: now, Quick Deploy will deploy where the map is centered on, rather than where you (and your blue dot) are located. As an example, here’s how you can quickly deploy a Greeting Card near a friend:

You can also use this to quickly drop munzees around upcoming event locations, if the area isn’t too crowded. Simply open the side menu, tap on [Munzee Events], and then tap on an Event Indicator pin to get to its details and view it on the map!

Please note that (1) Destinations like Skylands and Virtual Condos will still be deployed at the player’s current location, even if you use Quick Deploy — and (2) this change has only been made for the Quick Deploy process — all other Deploy processes in the app will still deploy at your current location.

Other Fixes/Improvements!

  • Dismissing the Send Rover pop up when given the option with the extended capture radius will no longer deselect the Munzee
  • Tapping on a badge from the Notifications list will scroll you down to the exact location of that badge in the Achievements area — this was how we had it working originally, but it seems to have broken at some point — we’ve fixed it and hopefully it stays that way! 🤞
  • Setting off blasts while moving quickly should blast the Munzees in the exact location you’re in when tapping on the “Fire!” button, thanks to caching improvements!

We hope you enjoy the changes we’ve made in this update! Remember that we will always maintain our Update Log HERE. Feel free to check it out whenever you like!

Munzee on!

Destination Renovation Part 2: Virtual Resorts!

Last year we took the first step in converting our Destination Munzees into a more flexible system with Motels and Destination Credits. It’s been tough to rework these more complex game pieces, but we are excited to announce that Destination Renovations are now LIVE for Virtual Resort Munzees!

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

Virtual Resort Details

Virtual Resort Munzees are now on a star-based system like Motels. Each star ranking equals 5 rooms, so effective immediately all original Virtual Resort Munzees have been converted into 3-Star Virtual Resorts. The icon images on the map are currently updating, but if you do see a “blank” or original Virtual Resort icon please note that, that is indeed a 3-Star Virtual Resort.

Renovating Virtual Resorts will offer the following:

  • 3-Star Virtual Resort: 15 rooms (Standard Virtual Resort)
  • 4-Star Virtual Resort: 20 Rooms
  • 5-Star Virtual Resort: 25 Rooms

By renovating you could be a part of a 5-Star Virtual Resort that is worth a substantial amount of points! Every time you Renovate a Virtual Resort you’ll earn 50 points as well, so get your construction hat on!

The Destination Renovation is currently only available for Virtual Resort and Motel Munzees, but it’s safe to say construction on other Destination Munzee types is slated for some time in the future!

So how do you Renovate a Virtual Resort? The same way as Renovating a Motel! Check out our Help Guide article if you need a refresher!

As Virtual Resorts are complete Virtual Munzees, they have NOT been converted into Destination Credits. Players will need Destination Credits to renovate Virtual Resorts.

  • Renovating a Virtual Resort = 1 Destination Credit per 5 rooms.

Don’t forget to check if you already have Destination Credits in your inventory! As more physical Destination types are given the ability to renovate, these types may also get converted into Destination Credits. Otherwise, you can purchase Destination Credits in the Freeze Tag Online Store and the In-App Store (click HERE if you’re on your Munzee-playing device), so be sure to stock up in case you come across any Virtual Resorts or Motels with no vacancy!

We hope you’re raring to use more Destination Credits with this new option! We’re always looking for ways to refresh the map and add value to game pieces you may already own!

Munzee on!
