Flat Lou is Suiting Up in Something Fancy!

You’ve seen Fancy Flat Rob and Fancy Flat Matt… but are you ready for Fancy Flat Lou? The regular Flat Lou was already easy to spot on the map due to her bright pink color, so we wanted the Fancy version to be even more eye-catching! Please welcome these new variants, featuring designs based on real cycling kits provided by Lou!

Fancy Flat Lous are on sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store (through Monday at 12:00 MHQ)! These Player Owned Bouncers (POBs) are variants of Flat Lou that players can own.

Like the Fancy Flat guys, the new Fancy Flat Lous will bounce around every 12 hours or when captured. Fancy Flat Lous will bounce to Flat Lous, Flat Robs, Airport Places, Transportation Places, Pink Colored Virtuals* (specified below), Treehouses, Skylands, and an additional other type based on the variant!

Bounces to:  

All Fancy Flat Lous will have the same point values, though there will be a random distribution of Cap and CapOn points.

Points: 

  • Deploy: 500 points
  • Capture: 200-300 points (random)
  • CapOn: 50-100 points (random)

The Fancy Flat Lous WILL be attracted to Virtual Magnets. They will also be equipped with the ability to be nudged. You can capture Fancy Flat Lous on your own munzees or previously captured munzees, but they will NOT be blastable. Now let’s get to know a little bit more about each variant!

InternationElles Flat Lou

Flat Lou is ready to show competitive cycling is not just for the boys! This variant of Fancy Flat Lou bounces to Flat Lous, Flat Robs, Shamrocks, Airport Places, Transportation Places, select Pink Colored Virtuals, Treehouses, and Skylands.

Flat Lou owns this more whimsical style signifying cyclist royalty and her ability to climb anything on her bike! This variant of Fancy Flat Lou bounces to Flat Lous, Flat Robs, Pink Diamonds, Airport Places, Transportation Places, select Pink Colored Virtuals, Treehouses, and Skylands.

Store Sale!

When a player goes to the online store they will be able to choose among three Fancy Flat Lous:

  • InternationElles Flat Lou
  • Team GB Flat Lou
  • Polka Dot Flat Lou

The only store limit will be up to one per variant per player account, meaning you can buy all three, but not more than one of each. Fancy Flat Rob variants are also available for sale!

The Fancy Flat Rob variants are available for purchase for players who do not already own all three. Like the Fancy Flat Lou variants, each player is allowed to purchase one of each Fancy Flat Friend variant per account.

Fancy Flat Robs and Fancy Flat Matts will also get two new landing pads! As of now all Fancy Flat friends can land in treehouses and skylands!

Badges

The Fancy Flat Lou variants will NOT count towards the other Flat Lou Capture or Deploy badges. Instead, Fancy Flat Lou will have their own Deploy badge that can be earned by deploying any Fancy Flat Lou variant. The badge will appear as follows:

MHQ is Throwing Out Some Boomerang Bouncers!

If you thought the Aussie Animals were the only Australian-themed bouncers you were going to get, guess again! These bouncers are both beautiful and potentially deadly — you may recall that boomerangs were originally used by Australian Aboriginal tribes as hunting weapons! Please exercise extreme caution as you make your approach — we make no guarantees on our aim!

Boomerang Details

We have six designs of bouncing MOB specials (3 virtual, 3 physical) flying around the world from now all the way until February 9 at 23:59 MHQ time! These wooden wonders land on Greenies and Virtuals respectively, but both also land on their corresponding Elemental Munzees as well! Virtual Boomerangs will land on Air Mystery Munzees and physical Boomerangs will land on Earth Mystery Munzees. The specials will bounce every 6 hours or when captured. 756 of these specials have been released (126 of each type) for plenty of capping opportunities!

The physical specials will be attracted to Munzee Magnets on Greenies, while the virtual specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virts. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Physical Specials

The physical specials include the Root Runner Boomerang, the Country Crawler Boomerang, and the Great Dividing Boomerang. These physical bouncers will land on the following:

  • Greenies
  • Earth Mystery Munzees

The physical bouncing specials will all be worth 261 points for the Capture and 75 points for the Host.

Virtual Specials

The virtual specials include the Parting Sea Boomerang, the Sunsetter Boomerang, and the Coral Catcher Boomerang. These virtual bouncers will land on the following:

  • All colors of Virtual Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees

These virtual bouncing specials will all be worth 126 points for the Capture and 75 points for the Host.

Badges

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Boomerang specials. Similar to our Aussie Animals, the artwork for these badges is based on items from our sister app WallaBee! But just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret!  However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

We hope these bouncers will fly to a munzee near you!

Munzee on!

Bowling Ball Munzee Details

UPDATE: This blog was originally posted in November 2018. As of November 2019, the Bowling Ball Munzee has been updated,  reflected by the information below. You can find complete information about all Gaming Munzees on the Help Guide. 

As promised, we have the details for the ALL NEW Bowling Ball Munzee! This addition to the Gaming Munzees is sure to knock a few pins loose! The Bowling Ball point system is based on ten-pin bowling, and you will have a chance to earn more points based on how many “pins” you “knock down.”

BASIC GAMEPLAY:

Bowling Ball Munzee:

Are you ready to play this classic game the Munzee way? Capturing a Bowling Ball will award you 25 points to start. The Bowling Ball Munzee will then initiate a mini-game (within a game, within a game!) for more points. Capturing a Bowling Ball Munzee will lead to a new virtual munzee called “Bowling – 1st Roll” being scattered to a location within 750 ft. You will be able to see the second stage (1st Roll) only after stage one (Bowling Ball) is captured. The scattered munzees will remain active for 1 hour or until captured from within a 150ft distance. 

1st Roll Munzee:

Capturing the 1st Roll Munzee, released after Capturing the Bowling Ball, will provide different options for players. If you earn a STRIKE, you will be awarded 300 points, and the game will be done. You also have the opportunity to earn anywhere between 1-9 points (one for each pin “knocked” down), and the game will advance to a virtual “2nd Roll,” which will be scattered within 500ft.

2nd Roll Munzee:

A 2nd Roll Munzee will be made available to players who have capped a Bowling Ball and a 1st Roll and did not earn a Strike on the 1st Roll. When the 2nd Roll Munzee is captured, players will either earn a SPARE and be awarded 150 points, or they will earn between 10-80 points based on number of pins “knocked” down. Either way, this will conclude the game!

POINT BREAKDOWN:

Bowling Ball Munzee

  • Deploy: 50 points
  • Capture: 25 points
  • CapOn: 20 points

1st Roll Munzee

STRIKE!

300 points 

-or-

SO CLOSE

1-9 points 

2nd Roll Munzee

SPARE!

150 points

-or-

GAME OVER!

10-80 points 

The first Bowling Ball will be a physical munzee, while the 1st Roll and 2nd Roll will both be virtual scatters. The Bowling Ball has a standard deploy radius. The scattered munzees will remain active for 1 hour or until captured from within a 150ft (45.72 m) distance. 

Additionally there are a number of different badges you can earn based on capturing the Bowling Ball Munzees, earning Strikes, and earning Spares. Check out the first of each badge line here:

Line up your shot, and Munzee on!

July Resolutions Are Here!

While you still have a few days left in June to put your iced coffee money in your savings account for June Resolutions, we’re already looking to the future for our July Resolutions badge! From eating healthy to traveling more, our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement. As summer heats up on the Northern Hemisphere, this month we challenge players to lose weight (if you need to for your health)!

Even Santa is working on his “summer bod”

Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. The monthly Capture Streak badges allow for the chance to work towards a different goal each month in order to bring about a year of positive growth and change.

Losing Weight for Health

While folks on the Southern Hemisphere might be bundling up, the Northern Hemisphere is well into bathing suit season. And for many, the rise in temperature is accompanied by a heightened dissatisfaction with one’s physical appearance. Weight loss, however, shouldn’t be something that is appearance based. It might sound cheesy, but if you’re asking yourself “do I have a summer body?” the answer is “do you have a body?” If you say “yes,” then you’re all ready to hit the beach!

While it’s crucial to accept your body as is, that doesn’t mean that you can neglect your health. If your weight is impacting your health, then it’s time to lose weight the right way in order to feel better and increase your longevity. Rather than gravitate towards a fad diet or “lose weight quick” scheme, the two main components of weight loss are diet and exercise. The number one reason why diets fail is because they are unsustainable. By changing your lifestyle choices permanently, you will never again have to grapple with the disappointments of “yo-yo dieting.” Just be sure to find a healthy meal plan that works best for YOU.

While counting calories can lead to unhealthy behaviors, it is beneficial to be aware of factors such what you eat, how much you eat, when you eat, and how often you eat. Keeping a food journal, or tracking your food intake on one of the many helpful dieting apps, can help you become more aware of what you put into your body so that you can make more informed dining choices.

When it comes to staying active, the playing field is unfortunately not even. However, if you have underlying medical issues that are prohibiting weight loss, you can still set daily goals for yourself. We are so proud of how many players have achieved monumental fitness accomplishments, especially after many have shared their stories of chronic physical disabilities and illnesses that they refuse to allow to hold them back. Remember, the only person you have to compete with when it comes to fitness is yourself. Focus on personal growth rather than comparing yourself to others, and remember that health is always the goal.

Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

Flat Matt Just Got a Little Bit Fancy! (BIG Sale!)

For too long now Flat Rob has had all the fun, galavanting around in his tuxedo, chilling on the beach, and traveling snowy terrains. It’s about time that Flat Matt got a wardrobe change of his own!

  • Virtual Bittersweet Munzees
  • Virtual Red Orange Munzees
  • Virtual Scarlet Munzees

Points: 

  • Deploy: 500 points
  • Capture: 200-300 points (random)
  • CapOn: 50-100 points (random)

The Fancy Flat Matts WILL be attracted to Virtual Magnets if they are used on one of the Red Color Virtuals. They will also be equipped with the ability to be nudged. You can capture Fancy Flat Matts on your own munzees or previously captured munzees, but they will NOT be blastable. Now let’s get to know a little bit more about each variant!

Each Flat Matt variant will cost $20, on sale for the full 24 hours so there is no rush to be online at the exact time. You will only be able to purchase the Fancy Flat Friends for 24 hours.

The Fancy Flat Rob variants are available for purchase for players who do not already own a Fancy Flat Rob variant. Like the Fancy Flat Matt variants, each player is only allowed to purchase one Flat Friends variant per friend. That means you are free to purchase one Fancy Flat Matt and one Fancy Flat Rob of your choosing!

The Fancy Flat Matt variants will NOT count towards the other Flat Matt Capture or Deploy badges. Instead, Fancy Flat Matts will have their own Deploy badge that can be earned by deploying any Fancy Flat Matt variant. The badge will appear as follows:

Flat Fashion– Deploy a Fancy Flat Matt variant

Are you leaning towards Matt’er Up, Face-Off, or Footy?! Luckily you have 24 hours to decide!

June Resolutions Badge Details

Our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement through highlighting different monthly resolutions. This month we’re challenging players to save money for the June Resolutions badge.

Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. The monthly Capture Streak badges allow for the chance to work towards a different goal each month in order to bring about a year of positive growth and change.

Tips for Saving

While some are naturally skilled in the art of restraint, others need more motivation to hold themselves back from bleeding their wallets dry. However, no matter how careless you might be with your spending, it is entirely possible to reverse your financial situation by adhering to ways to save money. To maximize your long-term profits, take advantage of interest when moving around bank account assets. Take inventory of the items you have accumulated over the years, and rather than continue to add to the collection, consider what you can sell. There’s a good chance you can profit from scarcely used items in your possession.

Instead of purchasing items when the mood strikes, carefully plan your shopping endeavors. Collect coupons, sign up for rewards programs, and stock up during seasonal sales. Purchase items in their off-season, and plan ahead for holiday shopping. For example, it will be far more cost effective to purchase winter apparel at the end of the cold season and save it for the next year if you know you’ll be needing a new coat in the future. Be thrifty with your spending, and don’t leave important purchases or gifts for the last minute. By planning ahead, you can secure the most desirable prices rather than shell out extra cash for a last minute need.

Stick to your shopping list, and restrain from impulse purchases. Decide which nights you want to go out, and stick to a set budget when you do so or plan social outings around discount nights. Take care of the items that you do have, and invest in high quality, long-lasting items rather than disposable trendy apparel. Be conscious of how much money you spend on take out and eating away from home and how often you waste electricity. Investing in smart appliances is a great way to lower bills and help the environment.

No, you won’t be able to take your money to the grave. But with life being so unpredictable, you never know when some extra savings could be your saving grace. Additionally, by abstaining from giving in to momentary purchases and whims, you can save your hard-earned money for things that matter, like visiting a faraway friend or relative or doing something that you’ve dreamed of. Avoid hardship down the line and open the possibility for more opportunities by being a bit more reserved with your spending.

Munzee on!

May Resolutions Badge Details

How has 2019 been treating you so far? If it hasn’t been your year to shine, fear not, because there are still eight months left for positive growth and change! Our monthly Capture Streak Badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement, bringing us the resolution to eat healthy (January), make new friends (February), explore new hobbies (March), and get organized (April). Summer is fast approaching on the Northern Hemisphere, and our May Resolutions badge is to travel more!

Each month’s badge is dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Each month provides the opportunity to put your best foot forward, so if you’re new to the game or accidentally missed a day, there’s no time like the present to get started on your streaks!

Traveling Tips

Many people plan to travel, but then this crazy thing happens. Life gets in the way. Traveling can be a financial burden for many, and big vacations can often take years to plan and save up. However, you only get one life to live, and that life should be filled with happy adventure! Traveling doesn’t have to mean flying around the world; it can involve simply getting into your car and driving to a town nearby that you haven’t explored. It can even involve venturing to new places in your town!

Break the routine of prosaic living and allow yourself the chance to experience more of what the world has to offer. Traveling allows for the chance to experience new walks of life, expand your perspective, and meet new people along the way. Learn how to travel the smart way with budget friendly tips. Rather than rent expensive hotels, take advantage of room renting services, such as Airbnb, to save money. This will also allow you the opportunity to select lodging with a kitchen so that you can save money on dining out! Shopping local and preparing meals will save you a lot of money while away from home.

Many plan vacations for the summer, but traveling in the off-season is almost always a guaranteed way to save money. You can also cut down on expenses by traveling with friends or family, in order to split costs, or by traveling to where you know people. Though you might be tempted to stop for mementos, gift shops and general shopping should be avoided in order to save big bucks. The memories you make should be more than enough, and the less you purchase, the more you’ll be able to travel in the future. Lastly, always try to do some online searching pre-trip to scout out the best deals in the area you’re heading to.

Still don’t think you’ll be able to squeeze a trip in? Luckily you still have Munzee, a real world scavenger hunt that is all about exploration! Remember you can always set up Trail Munzees to lead other players down paths worth exploring in your neighborhood!

Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

April Resolutions Badge Details Have Arrived!

Can you believe we’ve already completed a quarter of 2019? Our monthly Capture Streak Badges centered around a year of personal improvement have already brought us the resolution to eat healthy (January), make new friends (February), and explore new hobbies (March). This month we’re happy to introduce getting organized as out April Resolution!

Each month’s badge is dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Remember that each month is the chance to put your best foot forward, so if you’re new to the game or accidentally missed a day, there’s no time like the present to get started on your streaks!

Organize Your Life

Have you heard of the term “spring cleaning?” Even if you’re currently enjoying fall on the Southern Hemisphere, it can benefit your life greatly to join us folks on the Northern Hemisphere and get your life cleaned out and organized this spring.

Did you know that there are health benefits to being organized? Organization is linked to an increased boost in energy. Shake the midday slump with a quick desk organization. Having your personal and digital space in order can lead to a burst in energy. Organization can also lead to better eating habits! That’s right, organizational skills are linked to healthier eating. They can even potentially lower heart attack risks by getting people off their feet and moving!

Organization can also improve sleep habits, which are a critical component of overall health. Clutter can lead to an increase in stress which disrupts sleep time and quality. Give yourself the peace of minded needed to recharge and reboot by having your personal effects in order. Overall, organization is linked to a reduction in stress and an increase in happiness. So don’t forget to use your filters to organize everyone’s favorite game!

Munzee on!

March Resolution Badge Details!

How comfortable are you with getting outside of your comfort zone? What skills have you been meaning to sharpen? Our monthly Capture Streak Badges are centered on a year of self-improvement, and March is no different. While January focused on eating healthy and February involved making new friends, March will be the month of picking up new hobbies!

Underwater sweater knitting, anyone?

Each month’s badge will be dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. Even if you missed out on the last two months, it’s never too late to get in on the healthy and happy living! The extra Munzee badge is just an added bonus.

The Importance of Hobbies

What’s your favorite hobby? (I mean aside from Munzee, of course.) While many of us feel consumed by our day to day lives, you don’t have to wait until retirement to explore your hobbies. And if you are already retired, you’re in luck! It’s time to start exploring what you enjoy. Carving a part out of each day to devote to activities that nourish you physically, mentally, and spiritually is tantamount to achieving overall health and well-being.

Maybe you fell out of touch with a cherished childhood activity or you’ve been meaning to explore a new activity for years. Whatever the case, having a hobby is proven to be beneficial for your mind and body. Hobbies are an excellent stress reliever, which has benefits for both your mental happiness and your overall physical health. It’s crucial to remember to take a break and unwind with an enjoyable activity in order to give yourself some important relaxation time.

At the same time, hobbies allow the opportunity for new experiences and challenges. Shake up the normal routine of your daily life and allow your brain to focus on something new. The mental stimulation will be rewarding, while allowing the chance to explore and discover new talents. Who knows what hidden hobby you will discover in yourself! It might even prove to be financially lucrative, while learning new skills can advance your career.

Don’t allow your free time to be wasted! Enrich your spirit by picking up a new hobby this month. Oh and don’t forget to cap something every day this month too!

Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!
