You Are Cordially Invited to the 10th Annual Award ZEEson!

This year is our 10th birthday, and while we would have liked to pull out all the stops to celebrate, we still aren’t quite ready to host an in-person celebration. However, that doesn’t mean y’all can’t host your own safe, socially-distanced events! As this year is still an extra-special one for us, the theme we’ve decided on this year is Award ZEEson!

Event Package Overview

Get your events on the calendar (https://calendar.munzee.com/submit) and then choose from one of the following packages available in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Each has a unique host badge!

  • Gilded Guest – Basic event and no proximity restrictions – $30
  • Prized Presenter – The Gilded Guest plus 20 virtuals – $50
  • Notable Nominee – The Prized Presenter plus badge and icon (fully custom while time permits) – $150
  • Wonderful Winner – The Notable Nominee plus Eventzee (more info on that below!) and 50 EXCLUSIVE PaparaZEE Greeting Cards (similar to the March into May Event Greeting Cards) – $200

Birthday Box Garden Add-on – If you would like our themed Birthday Box Garden (similar to the March into May Events Tulip Gardens) to be deployed at your event location, this can be added onto any Birthday package. – $25

Emerald Prizes Add-on – If you would like your guests to receive a free Emerald garden pin, this can be added onto any Birthday package. – $25

This year’s 10-week birthday event period should hopefully align with an event you were already planning, or allow you the flexibility to schedule one if the idea just came to you! Birthday events can begin starting July 1st and run all the way to September 8th!

As always, there will be an Attendee Badge and plenty of extras! Get your events on the calendar, package requests in, and artwork suggestions in ASAP, especially if you’re hoping for merchandise, too. As our artists’ schedule starts to fill up, we will move to generic art options to avoid missing out on special event badges.

Return of Eventzee

As stated above, if you choose the Wonderful Winner Event Package, it will include an Eventzee Scavenger Hunt Party Pack! These new packs have all of the challenges created for you, so all you have to do is approve player submissions. Preserve your event for a lifetime with pictures and videos using the ALL NEW* Eventzee app!

Your Eventzee Add-On will include:

  • An Eventzee Party Pack with 20 challenges in a variety of different types.
  • Access to Social features for your hunt, including the photo stream and chat areas.
  • Players at your event will also be awarded an all NEW Eventzee badge for hosts and attendees posted to their Munzee accounts, as well as 500 Munzee points for each active player.

To set up your scavenger hunt the host will need to send their username and the email associated with their new Eventzee account to the Munzee Events Team. The host will then be made an admin of the Eventzee hunt and sent a code to the hunt beforehand along with the badge code.

*Please note that this package will require users to download the new Eventzee app and that these challenges will not count toward the previous Eventzee badges. Players will need to create a new Eventzee account if they have not already set one up in the new app.


Lastly, if you’re new to hosting, or if it’s been a while, you may want to check out our dedicated Help Guide section — we have articles that will walk you through every step of the way!

We’re looking forward to celebrating 10 years of this crazy game, and you, the players, who’ve kept it alive for so long!

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!

A Final Batch of NEW Greeting Cards for the Month!

This year, it’s been important to us to develop more products for our Authorized Resellers, who’ve done an amazing job making physical munzees more accessible to players all around the world! In February, we gave RUMs a much-needed update by creating a virtual version. In March, we created some fun variants on our line of Garden Gnomes themed around each Reseller! We didn’t want to let April pass by without another contribution!

We are happy to announce 4 NEW Greeting Cards are available for purchase! You can pick up Greeting Cards from our Authorized Resellers HERE. You receive multiple munzees from your single purchase. Read the details in the stores, or see below.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

We have 4 new Limited Edition cards for your deploying pleasure!

While these may have visual similarities with the Virtual RUMs, don’t get confused! These Greeting Cards lack the brown paper packaging.

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
    • Spring
    • Fall
    • Thinking of You
    • Knock Knock Joke
    • It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere
    • Wish I Was Here
    • Life Is Good
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Tech Issues (not available for sale)
    • March Into May Event (only available to March into May event hosts for their events)
    • Stay Home 2021
    • Picture Perfect (not available for sale)
    • May Flowers (until May 1)
    • GeoLoggers Reseller Card
    • Gold’n Coins Reseller Card
    • NEGS Reseller Card
    • SCGS Reseller Card

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!

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

Munzee on!

 

*Please note that we have combined all Open Edition cards into a single product on the FT Store. Moving forward all new Open Edition cards for sale will show up in this product, and you can choose which type of card you would like there. You can purchase all Open Edition cards HERE!

April Garden Gnome Reminder + May Preview!

As the month comes to a close, we wanted to make sure you were heading into May with your desired Garden Gnomes! The skin for completing your April capture streak (and the corresponding badge) will be awarded in early May, but we couldn’t wait to share what’s in store!

April Garden Gnome Reminders

If you haven’t picked up a Garden Gnome yet, they are available in the Freeze Tag Store for $9.

Each month, the price of a Garden Gnome will decrease by $1. However, players can only purchase 1 Garden Gnome every 28 days.

If you’re planning to complete the capture streaks for each month (and made the initial purchase in January) you’ll have 12 different skins to choose from! So be sure to purchase one each month so you can have a complete bench of these athletic Garden Gnomes!

We also released special Reseller Garden Gnomes in March — if you’re interested, you can check out our blog post on them HERE!

May Garden Gnome Details

What Gnome Skin can you look forward to receiving in May? The agile Soccer Garden Gnome! Like the other gnomes, the Soccer Garden Gnome is a temporary POB that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31.

As stated earlier, to earn this skin, you’ll need to have completed this month’s (April’s) capture streak. Once the skin is awarded in May, you can change the skin on the gnome to this one at any point — refer to our original blog post for the instructions!

Points

  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 300

You can find these cleat-clad competitors rushing to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, the Soccer Garden Gnome will scatter up to 3 NEW Gnome Header Hats nearby when it is captured!

Like the other Gnome Hats, the Gnome Header Hat will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Gnome 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 hat scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Gnome Hats are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

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

Badges

As a reminder, Garden Gnomes have 4 associated badge lines:

  • Unique type deploy badges — you’ll need to earn each month’s skin by keeping your streak up!
  • Overall deploy badges — the more gnomes you deploy, the merrier!
  • Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned gnome!
  • Overall capture badges — capture as many gnomes as you can find!

While we revealed images for the first of each badge line in the original post, we are happy to show you the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Soccer Garden Gnome:

We hope you don’t slip on wet grass while earning May’s Gnome Skin! Don’t forget to keep your streak up through May — you’ll need to in order to earn the June Gnome Skin!

Munzee on!

The Return of Earth Day Greeting Cards and More!

Last week we announced some additions to our Open Edition card lineup — but we had a few more waiting in the wings, which we thought would be perfect to accompany the re-release of the Earth Day Cards!

And lastly — from time to time we’ll award Picture Perfect Cards to players who add photos to certain munzee types!

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!

Munzee on!

Play a Round of Disc Golf With Robbie’s Flat Object!

In February, we introduced the first Flat Object, the Flat DHS! We loved the fun personal touch Dylan gave to his namesake game piece, and when it comes to creativity, Dylan is a hard act to follow. The rest of the MHQ staff has been using their spare moments thoughtfully designing their own Flat Object, so we hope you keep an eye out for them as they are released!

The second Flat Object is brought to you by Robbie, our indispensable Project Manager! If you’re a WallaBee player, Robbie is certainly a familiar face, but lately Robbie’s also been deeply involved in Munzee as well! For those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know him, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Robbie’s Flat Object features another outdoor hobby of his — disc golf! Whether you’re an avid disc golf player yourself or have never had the opportunity, the all new Flat Disc Golf Basket game piece should be easy to play with for all skill levels. Read on to learn more!

Flat Disc Golf Basket Details

The Flat Disc Golf Basket joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, blastable

Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own.

Deploy: 19 points

Capture: Split 90 points with a minimum of 19 Points

CapOn: Split 90 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat Disc Golf Basket munzee, turn on your “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types” filter. For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat Disc Golf Basket, which feature some Munzee-fied versions of disc golf gear. You can see the first of each below!

In-App Store Update!

Flat Rob, Flat Lou, the Flat DHS, and the Flat Disc Golf Basket are also now available for purchase in the In-App Store! The former two will cost 450 Zeds, while the latter two will cost 500 Zeds.

We hope you enjoy playing disc golf and learning a bit more about Robbie in the process! We also respectfully request that when referring to this game piece, please don’t shorten it to “Flat Basket” — Robbie thinks it makes him sound like a “basket case.” 😜

Munzee on!

Miss going out with your drinking buddy? Send them an It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere Card!

Jack In Zee Box Wasn’t the Only Trick Up Our Sleeves!

There are two types of people in this world: the pranksters and the pranked. Which will you be? If it’s the former, you’ll need some supplies, which we are happy to provide! Starting at 10:00 MHQ on April 1st, April Fools specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on April 30th.

April Fools Specials

We’ll be passing out the goods in waves, but will end at a total of 700 Bags of Tricks and 700 Sacks of Surprises. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find these curveball carriers bouncing to the following:

Both will be worth 150 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! Bags of Tricks will be attracted to Physical Magnets, while Sacks of Surprises will be attracted to Virtual Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

When you capture a Bag of Tricks or a Sack of Surprises, up to three different Prank Munzees will scatter to nearby Greenies or Virtual Colors, depending on their type. These munzees will stay on the map for 2 hours or when captured, and are worth 50 points for the Capture.

Additionally, when you capture a Prank Munzee up to 3 Elemental Scatters will be triggered! They behave the same way as they would when scattered from Elemental Mysteries.

Badges

There will be six badges to earn for these specials. Four are based on the total number of April Fools specials you capture, but just how many captures it takes to earn all 4 badges will be kept a secret! Of the remaining two badges, the first is based on capturing each of the different Prank Munzees you see here. The second is based on the total number of Prank Munzees captured. You can see the first badge below:

Wet Blanket- Capture one April Fools special of either type.

We hope your heart can handle these startling specials!

NEW Filters Allow You To Explore Like Never Before!

With the myriad munzee types out there, using Filters is a must to make the most of your time. After all, one of our mottos is “Play your way”, and you may not be interested in ALL munzee types.

We also know that many of our players have multiple hobbies related to being outdoors. So, to make things even more convenient for you, we’ve started a NEW line of filters that should make it easier to engage in some of those hobbies at the same time as Munzee! There are only 2 to start, but keep an eye out for more filter announcements in the future!

The Metal Detector Mode filter will show the location of buried metal artifacts up to 8 ft deep. Please note that this filter’s accuracy is dependent on the size of the artifact and your distance from it. A wrench buried at a depth of 2 ft will have a much more accurate location than a paper clip that is at a depth of 6 ft.

The Paranormal Mode filter will show the location of ghosts as they take on a corporeal form. Please note that this filter’s accuracy is dependent on the strength of the ghost’s spirit. Older ghosts tend to be weaker as they begin to forget their purpose for haunting the Earth.

You’ll find the Metal Detector Mode filter in the Physical tab, the Paranormal Mode filter in the Virtual tab, and both in the Premium tab, as you can see in the screenshots below:

We hope these colorful new filters enhance your app experience!

Munzee on!
