Team USA Earns Gold for Coupe du Munzee Victory!

The Coupe du Munzee specials might have left the map on July 7 following the conclusion of the Women’s World Cup, but we told you that wouldn’t be the end of these specials! Please welcome the Coupe Champion Nomad to the map at 15:00 MHQ time to honor our champion, Team USA!

 

This golden icon will operate similarly to our Nomad Munzees, which are rare bouncers that travel all over the map. Unlike our Coupe du Munzee specials, it will be a permanent munzee, meaning this physical bouncing game piece is here to stay! There will be 11 of the Coupe Champion Nomads on the map, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when capped. The number of Nomads signifies the 11 players on the field during a game of football/soccer.

Coupe Champion Nomads work a bit differently though. When you cap any of the 11 Coupe Champion Nomads you have a chance of earn one of 23 different icons featuring the jersey number of a member of the victorious Team USA! Similar to the Magic 8 Ball Specials, you don’t know which number you’ll get so cap these rare superstars any chance you can!

Points:

  • Capture: 500
  • CapOn: 250

These munzees can be captured on previously capped and owned munzees. They will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets. You can access the Coupe Champion Nomads by turning on your All Expiring Specials and All Limited Edition Specials filters.

Badge

There will be a special badge to earn upon capturing at least one Coupe Champion Nomad. These new bouncers will also count toward the other Nomad badge lines as well.

Coupe Du Munzee Champions!

We would also like to take a moment to acknowledge all of the teams that participated in the Coupe, especially the Netherlands team that put up such a great fight in the championship game. As a worldwide game ourselves we value the merits of international competition, and we had a ton of fun watching all of the games alongside our own international players. Now get out there and cap the Coupe Champion Nomad to celebrate the victory of Team USA! Even if you weren’t rooting for them, you have to admire the athletic achievement of the fierce women of Team USA!

Munzee on!

Coupe du Munzee Icon Updates!

It’s time for a map change! The Women’s World Cup Semifinals have officially determined which two teams will be battling it out for third place and which teams will have the chance to compete for the championship! We thought it was only fitting to reflect this on the map for our Coupe du Munzee specials, with our next icon change taking place on Friday, July, 5 at 00:01 MHQ time!

The Semifinals saw teams USA and Netherlands advancing to the finals, while England and Sweden will be competing for third place following their losses. However, rather than reduce England and Sweden to one icon per team as we have done with the other eliminated teams, these team icons will remain on the map at 34 icons per team! After all, these teams battled through quite the challenge and deserve recognition! Meanwhile, our top two teams have seen their icons increase from 11 to 30 to 50 to 75. Teams USA and Netherlands will now both have 120 icons per team to celebrate their amazing athletic achievements!

That means the Coupe du Munzee distribution will be as follows:

Top two teams, 120 icons per team:

  • USA
  • Netherlands

Third and fourth place teams, 34 icons per team:

  • England
  • Sweden

20 eliminated teams, 1 icon per team:

  • Germany
  • Norway
  • France
  • Italy
  • Australia
  • Cameroon
  • Brazil
  • Spain
  • China
  • Japan
  • Nigeria
  • Canada
  • South Korea
  • South Africa
  • Jamaica
  • Scotland
  • New Zealand
  • Thailand
  • Argentina
  • Chile

You will have until July 7 at 23:59 MHQ time to cap the Coupe du Munzee specials before they leave the map! There will also be a special surprise celebration to look forward to for the winning team icon! Stay tuned for more details, and remember that physical Munzee Magnets can help with capping those elusive team icons!

Have you earned all 7 Coupe du Munzee badges?!

Munzee on!

Your Future is Clear with the Magic 8 Ball Specials!

Do you have a burning question that you’re dying to have answered!? Can’t decide on whether or not to get a haircut or runaway to Tahiti? Well the Magic 8 Ball Munzee specials will be here tomorrow at 00:01 MHQ time to grant your questions a Munzee-fied response (as well as points and badges)! (Note: Freeze Tag is not liable for any real world player decisions made based off Magic 8 Ball Munzee answers 😉.)

Our Magic 8 Ball specials will launch at 00:01 MHQ time on July 3, with 888 hitting the map until 23:59 MHQ time on July 31! Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, there are a possibility of 8 different icons revealed after this special is captured. Each icon will correspond with a different saying that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Gleaming Pouch Creatures work. They will bounce around every 6 hours or when capped.

Dying to know what capture messages could be in store for you? We’ll give you a sneak peak, but you’re going to have to get busy capping to discover the other 7 options:

Points

  • Capture: 88 points
  • CapOn: 19 points

These Virtual Munzees will not be blastable. They will bounce to all virtual colors and be attracted to Virtual Magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Magic 8 Ball specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Badges & Personals

There is also a line featuring —you guessed it!— 8 new badges to earn based off number of captures of Magic 8 Ball specials. The first badge in the series appears as follows:

Magic 8 Ball– Capture 1 Magic 8 Ball special of any type.

The other seven badges may not be as easy to figure out as you think, so keep capping all month long to figure out the rest! Finally, we are happy to offer a fun collection of Magic 8 Ball Personal Tags available for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting tomorrow at 10:00 MHQ time! Here is a sneak peak:

There will be 8 different Magic 8 Ball Personal Tag responses. Players can either purchase an individual tag for $8 to receive a surprise saying or purchase the full set of 8 for $48. You can shop the Personal Tags HERE!

This special, of course, is brought to you by Munzee’s 8th birthday! This is a month for celebration as we live it up in the #8zees!

Munzee on!

The Women’s World Cup is officially advancing to the Semifinals, which means that 4 more teams have been eliminated. They will join the 16 previously eliminated teams with having only 1 physical icon per team on the map. Meanwhile, the teams still in the game have seen an increase from 11 to 30 to 50 Coupe du Munzee icons per team, and those numbers aren’t slowing down! The 4 advancing teams will see their icons increased to 75 per team!

The 4 remaining Coupe du Munzee teams, reflecting the results of the Women’s World Cup, are as follows:

  • England
  • United States
  • Netherlands
  • Sweden

The following 20 teams have officially been eliminated and reduced to 1 physical icon each:

  • Germany
  • Norway
  • France
  • Italy
  • Australia
  • Cameroon
  • Brazil
  • Spain
  • China
  • Japan
  • Nigeria

  • Scotland
  • New Zealand
  • Thailand
  • Argentina
  • Chile

Remember, you will have until July 7 at 23:59 MHQ time to cap the Coupe du Munzee specials before they leave the map.

In the meantime, you can continue working your way to earning all 7 Coupe du Munzee badges!

Coupe du Munzee Quarterfinals Update!

It’s almost time for the third icon adjustment for our Coupe du Munzee specials! Following the Round of 16 game update, which saw eliminated teams reduced to 1 icon each and advancing teams increased to 30 icons each, there will be another map change on Thursday, June 27 at 00:01 MHQ time to mark the Quarterfinals!

As the Women’s World Cup moves into the Quarterfinals, 8 more teams have been eliminated. That means that there will only be 1 physical icon per eliminated team on the map. However, your odds of capping one of the advancing teams just went up! All 8 advancing teams will see their icons increase to 50 per team!

The 8 advancing Coupe du Munzee teams, reflecting the results of the Women’s World Cup, are as follows:

  • Norway
  • England
  • France
  • United States
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Germany
  • Sweden

The following teams have been eliminated in the Round of 16 and reduced to 1 physical icon each:

  • Australia
  • Cameroon
  • Brazil
  • Spain
  • China
  • Japan
  • Nigeria
  • Canada

The following teams were previously eliminated and will remain at 1 icon per team:

  • South Korea
  • South Africa
  • Jamaica
  • Scotland
  • New Zealand
  • Thailand
  • Argentina
  • Chile

Schedule Updates!

While players can be treated to the new icon increase for the time being, keep in mind that only the 4 teams advancing to the Semifinals will remain in abundance on July 2 starting at 00:01 MHQ time. Since we made some updates to allow the eliminated teams to remain on the map with 1 icon a piece (rather than remove them entirely), we’ll provide an updated schedule here:

  • Teams advancing to the Quarterfinals will see an icon increase, while all eliminated teams will be reduced to one icon:
    • June 27 (00:01 MHQ time) – July 1 (23:59 MHQ time)
    • 8 team icons abundant, 16 icons reduced to one per team
  • Teams advancing to the Semifinals will see an icon increase, while all eliminated teams will be reduced to one icon:
    • July 2 (00:01 MHQ time) – July 7 (23:59 MHQ time)
    • 4 team icons abundant, 20 icons reduced to one per team

That means that all teams who make it to the final two matches will remain on the map from July 2 until the conclusion of the Coupe du Munzee specials on July 7 at 23:59 MHQ time, at which point all icons will leave the map. However, after the Coupe du Munzee specials leave the map, we will have a special surprise celebration for the winning icon! Stay tuned for more details!

How many Coupe du Munzee badges have you earned so far? Hopefully your team is still in the race!

Round of 16 Means Coupe du Munzee Updates!

The Coupe du Munzee specials have been on the map for two weeks now, which means it’s time for an update! The Coupe du Munzees will officially be changing in quantity on Saturday, June 22 at 00:01 MHQ time based on the advancement of teams in the Women’s World Cup!

Though we started out with 24 icons for each of the 24 teams in the Women’s World Cup, we told you that we’d be removing icons from the map as teams became eliminated in real life. However, we have decided to leave 1 physical icon per team for the 8 eliminated teams on the map. That means if you need a losing team icon to complete a badge, there’s still hope to be had!

While the 8 eliminated teams will have their original quantity of 11 physical icons reduced to 1 each, the 16 advancing teams will see their physical icons increase from 11 to 30. Are these numbers a bit overwhelming? Overall you can look forward to a grand total of 488 Coupe du Munzee specials on the map, for an overall increase of 54 percent in Coupe du Munzee specials! However, it will now become much more challenging to cap eliminated team icons.

The advancing Coupe du Munzee teams, reflecting the results of the Women’s World Cup, are as follows:

  • Germany
  • Nigeria
  • Norway
  • Australia
  • England
  • Cameroon
  • France
  • Brazil
  • Spain
  • USA
  • Sweden
  • Canada
  • Italy
  • China PR
  • Netherlands
  • Japan

That means that the following teams have been eliminated in the Women’s World Cup and reduced to 1 physical icon each:

  • South Korea
  • South Africa
  • Jamaica
  • Scotland
  • New Zealand
  • Thailand
  • Argentina
  • Chile

Updates!

Remember that though there will be an increase in the number of icons per winning team, as well as overall increase in the amount of specials, not all teams icons will remain abundant for long. Starting on June 27, only the teams advancing to the Quarterfinals will see an increase, while all eliminated teams will be reduced to 1 icon per team. (Need a refresher on when Coupe du Munzee icons change on the map? Check out the last blog!)

The special double points days for Flat Friends and German Coupe du Munzee specials will NOT continue on into the Round of 16. However, there are still 7 badges that players can earn along the way.

Capping the Coupe du Munzee specials might not be the easiest feat, but either is being a professional athlete! It’s a great time to use your physical Munzee Magnets, because there will be more specials to be capped by all players starting on Saturday!

Munzee on!

Coupe du Munzee Specials Cross onto the Map!

Tomorrow marks the start of the Women’s World Cup in France, a monumental competition featuring many of the top female athletes in the world. This massive sporting event means something in the world of Munzee as well, as our Coupe du Munzee Specials will begin bouncing around on June 7 at 00:01 MHQ time all the way until July 7 at 23:59 MHQ time to cheer these female athletes on, the Munzee way!

Earn this badge by capturing at least one Coupe du Munzee special!

Fierce Females

The Coupe du Munzee specials will hit the map in support of the Women’s World Cup, a competition that allows female football stars to demonstrate their immense athletic talent in a showcasing of some of the most skilled athletes in the world. As you cheer on your home country in the World Cup, be sure to take a moment to recognize the dedication these women have put into their training to make it to such a prestigious level of professional competition!

Unfortunately not all sports give female athletes adequate opportunity to compete on professional levels. Alongside our sponsorship of the InternationElles, a female cycling team that includes our own immeasurably talented Louise, Freeze Tag stands in support of all world athletes. We encourage equality in all professional sports, which is why we are thrilled to support the InternationElles as they demonstrate that female cyclists are every ounce as capable as men. You can support Louise and her team by picking up a Flat Lou from the Freeze Tag Online Store from 10:00 MHQ time on June 8 through 10:00 MHQ time on June 11, with a portion of all Flat Lou proceeds during this sale going towards Freeze Tag’s sponsorship of the InternationElles.

Coupe du Munzee

Ready to learn more about the specials that will be hitting the map in a number of hours?! To honor the 24 teams in the Women’s World Cup, we will have 1 physical icon per team and 11 of each team’s icons bouncing on the map every 6 hours or when captured to represent each player on the field. That means that we will be starting out with 264 specials up for grabs, featuring the following icons and many more!

Though the Coupe du Munzee specials will be on the map until July 7 at 23:59, not all team icons will last the duration of the run. While we will start out with 24 icons, one for each of the 24 teams, these numbers will slowly dwindle as teams fail to advance. With each passing the round the number of icons per team may increase as they remain in the competition. The following schedule will let you know how many icons will remain on the map throughout the World Cup:

  • All teams will join the map for the following days:
    • June 7 at 00:01 MHQ time through June 22
    • 24 team icons (11 bouncers per team)
  • Only teams advancing to the Round of 16 will remain on map for the following days:
    • June 22-25 (losing teams will be removed during this time period)
    • 16 team icons
  • Only teams advancing to the Quarterfinals will remain on map for the following days:
    • June 27-29 (losing teams will be removed during this time period)
    • 8 team icons
  • Only teams advancing to the Semifinals will remain on map for the following days:
    • July 2-3 (losing teams will be removed during this time period)
    • 4 team icons
  • Only teams playing for 3rd place will remain on map for the following day:
    • July 6
    • Losing 2 team icons
  • Only teams advancing to the Finals will remain on map for the following day:
    • July 7
    • Winning 2 team icons

The Coupe du Munzee specials can be captured on previously capped and owned munzees. These physical bouncing specials will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets and can be found by turning on the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The point distribution is as follows:

  • CapOn: 24 points

Players will be able to earn a badge for capturing one Coupe du Munzee special as well as a variety of other badges as well!

You will be able to earn a badge for capturing one of each team in an Ensemble, as well as a badge upon your first capture of any Coupe du Munzee special, for a total of seven new badges to earn with these specials. Remember that since the special icons will be eliminated along with their real world teams, you’ll want to capture these icons while you can to earn the badges!
