Destination Renovation Part 3: Hotels!

There’s a reason we included Hotels as one of the types you can earn Candy Corn Credits from — not only does it perfectly fit in with our Halloween theme, it also was the next on our list for an upgrade! It’s been tough to rework these more complex game pieces, but we are excited to announce that Destination Renovations are now LIVE for Hotel Munzees!

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

Hotel Details

Hotel Munzees are now on a star-based system like Virtual Resorts and Motels. Each star ranking equals 5 rooms, so effective immediately all original Hotel Munzees have been converted into 2-Star Hotels. The icon images on the map are currently updating, but if you do see a “blank” or original Hotel icon please note, that is indeed a 2-Star Hotel. The image caching should be resetting throughout this first day or so.

Renovating Hotels will offer the following:

  • 2-Star Hotel: 10 Rooms (Standard Hotel)
  • 3-Star Hotel: 15 Rooms
  • 4-Star Hotel: 20 Rooms

By renovating you could be a part of a 4-Star Hotel that is worth a substantial amount of points! Every time you Renovate a Hotel you’ll earn 50 points as well, so get your construction hat on!

The Destination Renovation is currently only available for Hotel, Virtual Resort, and Motel Munzees aka Destination Munzees!

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

All Hotel Munzee credits have now been converted into Destination Credits. Players will need Destination Credits to renovate and deploy Hotels. You will see this conversion documented at munzee.com/credits as 2 destination credits for each hotel credit you owned.

  • Renovating a Hotel = 1 Destination Credit per 5 rooms
  • Deploying a new 2 star Hotel = 2 Destination Credits

Don’t forget to check if you already have Destination Credits in your inventory! 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 Hotels, 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!

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!

For Your Mental Health, Take a Virtual Vacation!

Today is National Virtual Vacation Day, which is perhaps the most important holiday of all in these times. Maybe you’re a Hometown Hero who’s been required to go to work as usual this whole time (at great risk to your health), or maybe you’ve been fortunate to work from home but have been constantly on-call (to the detriment of your work-life balance). We ALL need a vacation, but for many of us, a staycation is the only option right now. So, to make your socially-distanced neighborhood walk a little more travel-themed, we have nearly a week of bonuses for you to enjoy!

Double Points Details

From the period of Tuesday, March 30th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, April 4th at 23:59 MHQ, enjoy double points on ALL Destination activity!

This includes points earned from rooms AND Destination Credits!

Store Sale!

For the same period as double points, Destinations will be available in the Freeze Tag Store at 20% off!

There are also some NEW Apparel designs so you can say “Mentally I’m here” without speaking a word!

We hope you make time to get your daily dose of sunshine and fresh air not only this week, but every week!

Munzee on!

NEW Capture Mulligan and Credits Section in the In-App Store!

Our Capture, Deploy, and Super Streak badge lines are popular choices for many players looking to set a goal. It can be challenging to squeeze in daily play during a busy month, but with some careful planning, many of our players have managed to do it (at the time of writing, over 4,000 have earned the Super Streak badge). However, the second badge in each line ratchets up the difficulty, requiring an unbroken year of capture and/or deploy activity — undoubtedly a difficult feat!

Even the most dedicated player, with alarms and reminders set each day, can have an unforeseen circumstance come up. It takes just one unlucky day to break a streak. The past year has brought unlucky days for many, so we thought it was the right time to release the Capture Mulligans!

NEW Capture Mulligans

 

They will award 1 capture worth 50 points as follows:

  • 1 Day – Allows players to add a capture marked with yesterday’s date
  • 7 Day – Allows players to add a capture to the last day missed within the last 7 days (for example, as today is Feb 10th — if you missed capping something on both Feb 7th and Feb 8th, it will only add a capture with a Feb 8th date)
  • 14 Day – Allows players to add a capture to the last day missed within the last 14 days

As these items are meant for those one-off unlucky days, they are limited to 1 each per player every 30 days.

Please note that they are only available in the In-App Store, not in our online store.

Other Credits Available in the App

Along with the Capture Mulligans above, we’ve brought the following credits to the In-App Store for your convenience!

We hope this makes breaking your capture streak a little less devastating!

Munzee on!

NEW Funfinity Stone + A Destination to Go With It!

After some crazy weather patterns, we’re looking forward to a lovely, tame Spring around MHQ. But even if it’s not springtime in your area, you can still take in the sights of beautiful Munzee Gardens (like the April Gardens of the Month!). You may even spot our newest Funfinity Stone in the wild!

Joining the Funfinity Stones family, please welcome the Smaragd (we can’t pronounce it either) Pouch Creature! Now that more than half of the Funfinity Stones have been activated, a new Destination has been unlocked as well.

If you enjoy hanging out at a Treehouse, get ready to pack your bags for Skyland!

Smaragd is available NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. Be sure to shop fast, because these Funfinity Stones will leave the store at 15:00 MHQ on Monday, May 18! Like the other Funfinity Stones, players can purchase a Smaragd for $10. No upgrade ability is available. Topaas and Oniks will also be available during this time. Like other virtual POBs Smaragd will land in the Skyland (more on that later) which is available for purchase HERE! NOTE: Skyland’s deploy process is the same as other virtual Destination munzees, which you can read about HERE. Note that the distance requirement for Skyland is slightly different.

Smaragd Details

Smaragd joins the current line of Pouch Creatures as a Player Owned Bouncer (POB) that will bounce to Green Virtuals, Air Mystery, Emerald, and Skyland Munzees every 6 hours or when capped.

It will have the same point values as the other Funfinity Stones:

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 250 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 200 points

Smaragd will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Smaragd on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Smaragd visits you. It will be attracted to Virtual Magnets depending on the landing pad type. You can access Smaragd under the “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Pouch Creatures” filters.

New Badge!

Deploying a Smaragd will earn you the following badge:

Smaragd Funfinity Stone – Deploy Smaragd Pouch Creature.

Additionally, any Smaragd captures will help you progress in both the Unique Funfinity Stone Capture badge line and the Pouch Creature Capture badge line.

If you want to brush up on any Pouch Creature knowledge, be sure to check out our Help Guide!

Skyland Munzee

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

Points:

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

The deploy circle for Skyland will be 4,000 feet (1219.2 m) from the nearest Skyland, 500 feet from Vacation Condos and Virtual Resorts, and all other normal 50/150 feet proximity rules apply on the virtual layer. Capture radius is 1000 feet. Updated 3 hours post launch.

To access the Skyland Munzee, turn on your Virtual filter and find it under “Destinations”. Depending on the munzees the Skyland is hosting, it can also be visible with the following Premium filters: “All Expiring Specials,” “All Mythologicals,” and “All Pouch Creatures.”

Please note the following special information about the Skyland Munzee:

  • The Skyland Icon will change to show the number of POBs hanging out. Players will see the base icon above for 0, but then a 1-6 as more POBs 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 Skyland will attract up to 6 POBs over time, but you can use a Virtual Magnet to draw a total of 6 POBs much quicker.
  • Only virtual Myths, their Variants, and other virtual POBs should land on a Skyland.
  • The Regular POB timer is still in effect. If a POB times out, it leaves the Skyland and an open spot becomes available for others to join.

Why use a Skyland? 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 Wars requirements quicker

Badges

With the introduction of Skyland comes a new badge line based on Treehouse and Skyland points! NOTE: These points do NOT include the POBs captured on the munzee. These badges will be retroactive, so any points you’ve earned from capping Treehouses will count toward these badges.

You can see the first of this badge line below!

Magic Jelly Beans- Earn 100 Total Points from Treehouse and Skyland combined.

Skyland will also count toward the overall Destination captures badge line the first time you cap it. That means daily caps will not count toward badges, only the first time you cap it.

You are only able to purchase 1 Skyland every 14 days per player account. For more information about Skyland, how to deploy it, and exactly what types will land on it, check out our Help Guide article! By the way we also updated what lands on Treehouses too!

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!

Announcing Rock, Paper, Scissors Badges!

Rock. Paper. Scissors. SHOOT!

We’re excited to announce a new line of badges for capturing and deploying Rock, Paper, Scissors Munzees! As part of the gaming line, RPS Munzees actually include a mini game of Rock, Paper, Scissors which you can earn more points for winning. Since this is such a unique type of Munzee there’s a special third line of badges for winning games of RPS too!

We’ll just show the first of each badge line for now, but you can probably guess the themes for each:

Capture:

Paper Boy- Capture 10 Rock Paper Scissors Munzees

Deploy:

Rock vs Scissors- Deploy 1 Rock Paper Scissors Munzee

Winning:

Bronze Paper- Win 1 game of Rock Paper Scissors.

These badges won’t be easy to come by, but they are retroactive, so your past captures, deploys and wins will count toward these. The badges are now live and available to earn.

Help out your fellow players by deploying RPS stickers as well! For a limited time you can purchase 5 RPS Munzees for $3.50 (regularly $5) in the Munzee Online Store.

You can also pick up another gaming munzee on sale too. For a limited time Prize Wheel 5 packs are on sale for $17.50 (regularly $25). These are great if you still need to earn the Prize Wheels badges. Who knows, maybe that badge line will be extended in the future too…

The sale will run until Monday at 10:00 MHQ time, so get rocking n’ rolling!

Happy hunting and Munzee on!

We have also released an all new line of badges for capturing Mystery and Mini Mystery Munzees. A detective must use all of his tools to his advantage if he hopes to solve the Mystery!

These badges won’t be easy to come by, but they are retroactive, so any of your past mystery solving will count toward these. The badges are now live and available to earn.

In celebration of those masterful mysteries, for a limited time you can purchase 5 Mini Mystery Munzees for $5 (regularly $7.50) in the Munzee Online Store. The sale will run until Sunday at 15:00 MHQ time so don’t tarry too long! Check them out HERE!

Introducing Myth Collector Badges!

With so many new Mythological Munzees popping up these days, you’d have to be crazy to go chasing after all of those kooky creatures. Luckily our players aren’t afraid of pushing the limits when it comes to capping munzees.

Myth Trapper – Capture 1,000 Mythological Munzees of any type.

So with that mind we’re happy to announce that a new line of badges have been released for capturing Myths of any type! Not for the faint of heart, these badges will tally up every Mythological Munzee you’ve ever captured.

Mythological Munzees:

  • Unicorn
  • Leprechaun
  • Dragon
  • Yeti
  • Faun
  • Hydra
  • Pegasus
  • Rainbow Unicorn
  • Gnome Leprechaun

The badges are retroactive, but you’ll only be able to see the requirements for the next badge once you complete the previous one. Once you earn the first in the set you’ll unlock the requirements for the next badge. All of the badges are live so you can start earning them now.

It won’t be easy to earn these badges, but we know you’ll brave the elements! Remember, you can increase your chances of finding Myths by using Elemental Munzees and Magnets. 

Happy hunting and as always, Munzee on!
