All about Hammock

Howdy everyone! Today we’re writing with some bittersweet news. July is going to be the final month for our player support hammer wielder, Daniel Hammock. He is very excited to welcome a new baby into his family soon and needs the time to focus on his family. Flat Hammock will still remain in play and will be on the map permanently as announced earlier in the week.

Let’s all celebrate Daniel and his work together on National Hammock Day, July 22 (yes that is a real thing). All activity on Flat Hammocks will be double points from July 22 through July 26. Thank you Daniel for all the years of player support and caring for the Munzee family! Best wishes and good luck for the future!

Celebrate 9th Birthday Events at Camp Munzee!

Howdy everyone! July 2020 is our 9th birthday and we want to celebrate with YOU at Camp Munzee! We’ll have more details about all sorts of fun birthday surprises in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

This year we’re going to do it in a slightly different way with player events. All events that take place between July 1st and September 9th will receive a special Camp Munzee Camper badge for players. Event hosts will also receive the Camp Munzee Counselor badge for hosting an event during this timeframe.

There will be no special event packages during this time however you are still able to add a custom icon and badge to your event. Louise is ready to work with hosts to customize their events so please get your events on the calendar and setup your basic event package!

There is one special new munzee that will only be available to purchase for event accounts! The brand new limited edition Event Greeting Card! For the 9th birthday events these cards will cost $9.99 for 40 cards! Contact Louise to order for your event!

As always please respect your local guidelines for social distancing and safety. We hope a 9 week period for our 9th birthday events gives more people a chance to host, attend and earn the badges.

Munzee On!

July 2020’s Resolution Is Not Just For Kids!

Now that summer is in full swing, have you been able to enjoy some of your usual hot-weather activities? While it’s certainly easier to break a sweat due to the temperature, we hope you aren’t slacking off on your fitness regimen! As we announced in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of being active. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to practicing a different exercise. 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. This month’s badge may be tricky to get, but we believe in you!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. For July we are featuring jump rope! Like last month’s exercise, jogging, jumping rope is a great aerobic exercise and is also very simple to do. Another benefit from jumping rope is that it exercises your coordination and ability to focus — after all, maintaining the rhythm you have turning the rope and jumping over it at the same time is no easy feat, and it gets harder as you become more tired. The only downside (or rather, barrier) to jumping rope is that it does require 1 piece of equipment and a space bubble big enough to fit your entire body comfortably within the bounds of the jump rope while standing or jumping. If you don’t have enough space, you might get your rope caught on something and injure yourself or others.

What is the perfect jump rope length?

The answer depends on whether you’re jumping alone or with a group! If you’re jumping alone, the perfect length will depend on your height. According to LiveStrong.com, anyone shorter than 4’9″ should use a 7-foot rope, while anyone taller than 6’6″ should use an 11-foot rope. If, like most people, you’re somewhere in-between, check out the link to see how long your jump rope should be!

While it may be a while before you get to jump in a group, LiveStrong’s suggested rope lengths grow depending on how many people are jumping. For a single jumper with the ropes being turned by two others, a 12-foot rope should suffice. However, more than 4 jumpers will require at least double that length! If you’re jumping double dutch, these same recommendations apply — and both ropes should be the same length!

Before you attempt any exercise, it’s always a good idea to consult your doctor**. Good luck and 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! 

** MUNZEE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY EXERCISE-RELATED INJURIES

Event Spotlight: happy birthday to Munzee, Workum- the Netherlands

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the happy birthday to munzee, Workum- the Netherlands event, which took place on July 1, 2015 at Workum, The Netherlands and was hosted by bordentaxi, feikjen, and felixbongers.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

We planned a Munzee’s 4th birthday event on the 1st of July 2015.

We were a little bit nervous because it was only the second event we had organized.

Event 101 started off to be one of many.

The event location we used was our restaurant, so it was easy for us to receive guests and take care of them. We’re a family of three. Feikjen (my wife) Felix (our son) and myself, Maarten.

Like I said, it was just another event until Louise wrote us an e-mail, saying Rob was going to join our party. He was even going to arrive the evening before, so we had to re-organize the whole thing. Finally, we made it into two events. On the night before (hang out with the “guys” event) we all had dinner on the balcony of our restaurant. Then the main event on the 1st of July. A lot of people stayed overnight, so we organized a common breakfast. After that, a wooden ship with historical value picked us all up, we passed through the lock and after a little tour we ended in our restaurant for coffee, tea & pie, munzee and laughter.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

Find a nice location. We think it’s handy to pick a spot with a place around where you can get a coffee, stay dry in case of rain and to get warm again if necessary. Then get a Badge and a special capture and set out a nice walk.

What made your event unique?

Definitely the presence of Rob. It was really great fun meeting the person behind coachV and talking to him. What a privilege. Mind you, organizing an event is always fun. You meet fellow players and we have lots of fun.

Would you like to highlight any future events you’re hosting?

You can’t have a birthday without a party, so we organized a 9th birthday event.

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1591535642/

No matter what, we have to be extra creative this time because of the corona restrictions.

We’ve organized 27 events until now, in Holland and abroad, we’ll manage this one as well.

Thank you to bordentaxi for being such a great host and submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!

These World Sushi Day Specials Are A Feast for the Eyes!

World Sushi Day specials are now live on the map for everyone and will remain available until July 8 at 23:59 MHQ. You can use the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters to more easily view them on the map. There are quite a few different specials, so check out a breakdown of each below!

Sushi Ingredients

There will be 658 Sushi Ingredient Specials available for capture on the map — that breaks down to 80 of each type except for Puffer Fish, of which there are only 18. These are attracted to either Physical or Virtual Magnets depending on their type. None of these specials are blastable.

Landing Pads:

Bounce Times:

  • Rice: every hour
  • Nori: every 2 hours
  • Cucumber: every 3 hours
  • Fried Egg: every 4 hours
  • Prawn: every 5 hours
  • Salmon: every 6 hours
  • Roe: every 7 hours
  • Tuna: every 8 hours
  • Puffer Fish: every 9 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 80
  • CapOn: 18

Sushi Badges

There are two lines of badges related to Sushi Ingredient specials.

The first line is based on overall Sushi Ingredient captures. These badges will give you all of the tools you need for preparing sushi! The first badge in this line is a Rolling Mat earned by capping one Ingredient of any type!

The second line of badges is based on capping different combinations of Sushi Ingredient specials. Make sure to cap at least one of each special so you can try each type of roll!

You can sneak a peek at the first of each badge line (and the answer to our social post) below:

Sushi Masters

In addition to the Sushi Ingredients there will also be three rare Sushi Master Specials bouncing around the map! There will be a total of 18 Sushi Master Specials available for capture — that breaks down to 6 of each type. More Sushi Masters may emerge if they pass inspection throughout this celebration! These are attracted to both Physical or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. These are officially tPOBs on the Munzee account and are not blastable.

Landing Pads:

Bounce Times:

  • every 6 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 50

There will also be a unique badge for capturing each type of Sushi Master so be sure you track down at least one of each! How else will you reserve a table at their five star sushi restaurants?

We hope you’re able to cook up some fun with these delicious dining options! If you love this artwork, look for it and so much more on our sister app, WallaBee!

Munzee on!

Aquatic Baby Animals Have Come Out to Play!

Once we started thinking about adding turtles and jellyfish to the game, we couldn’t stop coming up with more animals to add! Luckily, we found a few more animals already swimming around under the ZEE! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on June 5th, Baby Animal specials will begin bouncing around the map until 23:59 MHQ on June 21st.

Baby Animals Details

Players of our sister app, WallaBee, may recognize the art for some of these adorable bouncers, but we’ve added a few new ones to the mix as well! Can you guess which ones they are?

500 of these specials (100 of each released over the next 5 hours) will bounce to the following landing pads:

To shake things up a bit, we’ve set different timers for each Aquatic Baby Animal. Each type will bounce at the listed time below, or when captured.

  • Narwhal- Bounce every 6 hours
  • Penguin- Bounce every 5 hours
  • Crab- Bounce every 4 hours
  • Seal Pup- Bounce every 3 hours
  • Shark- Bounce every 2 hours

Hopefully these varying bounce times will allow everyone the opportunity to capture some of each type! They will be worth 150 points for Capture and 50 points for CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out!

The Baby Animals will be attracted to Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets, respectively. However, they will not be blastable. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

Additionally, there will be six NEW badges to earn based on the number of Aquatic Baby Animal specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 6 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Marine Map- Capture 1 Aquatic Baby Animal of any type.

The beach may be a great place to relax, but an aquarium gives you the opportunity to see these animals up close! Do you have any photos of fond memories at an aquarium? Please post them in the comments! We’d love to see them!

We hope these aquatic cuties have swum into the depths of your heart!

Munzee on!

*Blue Colored Virtuals include:

  • Virtual Blue Violet

  • Virtual Cadet Blue
  • Virtual Periwinkle
  • Virtual Cornflower

  • Virtual Pacific Blue
  • Virtual Cerulean

NEW World Oceans Day Greeting Card and ZEE-Dayz Follow-up!

UPDATE: The Water Droplet Munzee has been removed from our ZEE-Dayz list. It has also been removed from the gallery below.

If you missed our post yesterday, we gave a preview of everything we’ve prepared for our ZEE-Dayz weekend! However, since the festivities start NOW we thought it’d be a good idea to give you a rundown. But first, let’s start with some totally new information!

We are happy to announce the World Oceans Day Greeting Card is now available for purchase! 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.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

By popular demand, the World Oceans Day Greeting Card is available HERE in the Freeze Tag Store! Think of it as the most reliable message in a bottle you’ll ever send!

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!

This brings the current lineup of Greeting Cards available for purchase to the following:

  • Open Edition (will always be available; ONE Purchase yields FOUR munzees)
    • Birthday
    • Get Well
    • Thank You
    • Congrats
    • Sorry
    • Sorry 1
    • Sorry 2
    • Sorry 3
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Stay Home
    • World Oceans Day

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

  • Open Edition
    • Deploy: 50
    • Capture: 40
    • CapOn: 25
  • Limited Edition
    • 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! Don’t forget these will also be worth double points for the weekend, so get catch a wave and get deploying!

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

Hydras Are Back in the Store!

Check them out HERE! You can get double deploy points on Hydras purchased during the period of 12:00 MHQ on Thursday June 4 to 23:59 MHQ on Monday June 8! Remember that you can purchase multiple of the base-level version of certain myths as of last month, which is perfect for owning all three types of Hydra variants. Now you don’t have to decide between a Ceberus or Cthulu, so be sure and stock up on Bouncer Upgrade Credits!

2x Points on Water-Based Myths!

Yesterday we gave you the list of myths in text form, so we put this gallery together for you visually-oriented players! Enjoy 2x the points on ALL activity for the munzees shown above for the period of 12:00 MHQ on Thursday June 4 to 23:59 MHQ on Monday June 8 (same period as Hydra sales)!

We hope you’re looking forward to a wonderful water-filled weekend!

Munzee on!

NEW Evolutions Extend Our Aquatic Wildlife Collection!

We’ve been missing beautiful beach views, the sound of the waves, and glimpses of aquatic wildlife. While we may not be able to do anything in Munzee about the first two, we thought that it’s about time to add some new Evolution Munzees to our roster! Starting June 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, our brand new Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be made available through the June MunzPak Subscriptions!

These NEW Evolution Munzees will be available in their corresponding MunzPak Subscriptions, sold in the Freeze Tag Online Store. However, keep in mind that if any MunzPak orders are placed before June 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, players will be receiving the May MunzPak. Both the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions are a combination of Physicals and Virtuals.


Turtle Evolution Munzees

Stages 1-4 of the Turtle Evos are Physical Munzees, while Stage 5 Turtles will bounce to both physical and virtual landing pads.

The 5 stages of the Turtle Evolution are as follows:

  • Stage 1: Turtle Egg
  • Stage 2: Turtle Hatchling
  • Stage 3: Juvenile Turtle
  • Stage 4: Adult Turtle
  • Stage 5: Turtle (3 Variants)
    • Sea Turtle
    • Snapping Turtle
    • Taekwondo Tortoise- RARE VARIANT!

Jellyfish Evolution Munzees

Stages 1-4 of the Jellyfish Evos are Virtual Munzees, while Stage 5 Jellyfish will bounce to both physical and virtual landing pads.

The 5 stages of the Jellyfish Evolution are as follows:

  • Stage 1: Jellyfish Planula Larva
  • Stage 2: Jellyfish Polyp
  • Stage 3: Jellyfish Bulbed Polyp
  • Stage 4: Jellyfish Ephyra Larva
  • Stage 5: Jellyfish (3 Variants)
    • Box Jellyfish
    • Golden Jellyfish
    • PB & Jellyfish- RARE VARIANT

Evolution Timeline

The stage timeline of the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will match that of the Butterfly Evolution. The stages will be as follows:

  • Stage 1 to Stage 2: after 4 days
  • Stage 2 to Stage 3: after 14 days
  • Stage 3 to Stage 4: after 10 days
  • Stage 4 to Stage 5: permanent until reset to stage one

Once these Evolutions reach Stage 4, a temporary POB will be launched. For example, if you’ve deployed a Turtle Evolution, the Juvenile Turtle will remain in place, while the adult Turtle variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.” Likewise, if you’ve deployed a Jellyfish Evolution, the Jellyfish Bulbed Polyp will remain in place, while the Jellyfish variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.”

Once these Evolutions reach Stage 5, they will stay in place for 8 hours or when captured, and will not be able to be nudged. Once 10 captures or 42 days have elapsed for Stage 5, the Turtle or Jellyfish will be archived.

The first four stages of the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be the same for all players. However, Stage 5 will have the option of emerging as one of the three different species listed above. Like the Flower Evolutions, the chance of the Turtle or Jellyfish Evolution evolving to one of the 3 types changes every time it is reset with the Evolution Reset Credit.

Using an evolution reset credit will set your Evolution back to Stage 1, for a chance for the Turtle or Jellyfish to evolve to a different species at Stage 5. Although you cannot capture a reset evolution if you have already captured the original from stages 1-4, you CAN capture the final level of a reset when it evolves and releases a new tPOB. An easy way to know is, if you see it on the map you can capture it!

Please note that although the first four stages for each are the same, they will count as different special capture icons. Like all Player Owned Bouncers (POBs), the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be available for multi-capture only as the Level 5 Turtle or Level 5 Jellyfish, respectively.


Points and Landing Pads

The points for the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be as same as the Butterfly Evolution, with 100 points awarded per Stage 1 deploy.

  • Stage 1: Cap: 50, CapOn: 30
  • Stage 2: Cap: 40, CapOn: 20
  • Stage 3: Cap: 45, CapOn: 25
  • Stage 4: Cap: 40, CapOn: 30
  • Stage 5: Cap: 150, CapOn: 50, Host CapOn: 50

Just like real life turtles and jellyfish, the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolution Munzees sometimes swim to dangerous areas including predator filled waters, and high-speed roadways! Bouncing Turtle and Jellyfish Evos will be attracted to the following landing pads:

The Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will adhere to normal proximity rules. Stage 1 deploys must be at least 50 feet from any other physical type and 150 feet from your own physical munzees. Stages 1-4 are blastable.

Stage 5 of the Turtle and Jellyfish Evos will be attracted to Munzee Magnets and Virtual Magnets. They are NOT blastable. To access the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolution Munzees, turn on your “Evolution” and “All Expiring Specials” filters. The Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will count toward Evolution Capture and Deploy badges.

The full contents of the June MuzPak Subscriptions will be revealed on Monday. We hope this latest Evolution has you ready to dive into summer (in the northern hemisphere) in the meantime!

Munzee on!

*Green Colored Virtuals include: 

  • VIRTUAL SEA GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GRANNY SMITH APPLE MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL FOREST GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL ASPARAGUS MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL OLIVE GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL YELLOW GREEN MUNZEES
