Did You Get Our Invite? More 10th Annual Award ZEEson Ceremony Details!

We first posted our invitations yesterday on social media to give you a heads-up — now we have a few more details filled in!

Some slightly more detailed info in list form:

  • We are shooting for a start time of 14:30 MHQ on July 29. In the case of any technical difficulties, we will let you know of any new start times as soon as we can.
  • You will be able to view the LIVE video on our Facebook Page HERE!
  • As usual, Facebook should automatically post the completed recording on the page once the live video is over, so if you’re not able to watch it live, you can still have your own Award Ceremony experience afterwards! We’ll post the link to the recording here as well.
    • UPDATE: The link to the recording is HERE, and we’ve also embedded it below!
  • We’d love it if you got all dressed up and posted a selfie in the comments, but as always, do what you are comfortable with!

  • MZeeP
    • Voted as one of the Most Valuable Players by your peers during the 10th Munzee Birthday Celebrations.

    • Voted as one of the Best Dressed by your peers during the 10th Munzee Birthday Celebrations.

Head to the Google Form HERE! Unlike our other nomination Google Forms, this should be limited to one submission per person. We’ll keep the form open at least until the end of Birthday Events, which means some time during our workday on September 8th.

We are also brainstorming more fun and interesting honors to bestow in the 10 months following our 10th birthday — in particular, ones that feature newer players, as more established players have certainly had an advantage in the awards we’ve come up with so far.

It’s hard to predict what the criteria will be, so just keep playing your way and

Munzee On!

July Garden Gnome Reminder + August Preview!

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

July Garden Gnome Reminders

If you haven’t picked up a Garden Gnome yet, they are available in the Freeze Tag Store for $6.

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!

August Garden Gnome Details

What Gnome Skin can you look forward to receiving in August? The all-rounder Cricket Garden Gnome! Like the other gnomes, the Cricket 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 (July’s) capture streak. Once the skin is awarded in August, 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 brawny batters sprinting to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, the Cricket Garden Gnome will scatter up to 3 NEW Gnome Club Caps nearby when it is captured!

Like the other Gnome Hats, the Gnome Club Cap 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 Cricket Garden Gnome will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Cricket Garden Gnomes on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Cricket Garden Gnome visits you. Cricket Garden Gnomes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Cricket 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 Cricket Garden Gnome:

We hope earning August’s Gnome Skin isn’t a sticky wicket! Don’t forget to keep your streak up through August — you’ll need to in order to earn the September Gnome Skin!

Munzee on!

Birthday QRates in the Wild?!

Nine days ago, we revealed what was waiting inside the Birthday Qrate for Tier 3 10th Birthday Mailbox members — the MechaniC4K3! It definitely caught your attention with its high deploy points, and we were happy to see it was an enjoyable surprise! Of course, we didn’t want to leave the rest of the players out indefinitely, so we thought it would be nice to release the Blueprints (just the Blueprints, no auto-deployed tPOB) in a slightly different Birthday QRate for all!

What’s Different?

Here’s a handy chart to make it easy to compare:

Wild Birthday QRate 10th Birthday Mailbox Birthday QRate All other QRates
Where to find Greenies, Physical Elementals (Fire, Ice, Earth, Water) 10th Birthday Mailbox Tier 3 Day 3 Greenies
Need Empty Slot? Yes No – came with a temporary slot Yes
Cap Requirements 100 physical munzees 25 physical munzees 100, 124, or 160 physical munzees, depending on type
Prize Pool MechaniC4K3 Blueprint, NEW Cubimal, 5-pack of certain Greeting Cards Auto-deployed MechaniC4K3 + MechaniC4K3 Blueprints guaranteed Cubimal, Booster, other Credits

Or, if you prefer some slightly more detailed info in list form:

  • Birthday QRates can be found when capturing physical Elementals (Fire, Ice, Earth, Water) in addition to Greenies — other QRates can only be found when capturing Greenies
  • It will require an empty slot to be found — the 10th Birthday Mailbox’s Birthday QRate came with a temporary slot, if all your slots were full
  • It will require 100 physical munzee captures to open — the 10th Birthday Mailbox’s Birthday QRate only required 25 captures
  • Upon opening the QRate, there is a chance to receive the MechaniC4K3 Blueprint, but it is NOT guaranteed — the 10th Birthday Mailbox’s Birthday QRate is guaranteed to deploy a fully-built MechaniC4K3 AND award the Blueprint
    • Other prizes in the prize pool include a previously unreleased Cubimal, and 5-packs of certain Greeting Cards
    • If you already own the MechaniC4K3 Blueprint (i.e. if you are a Tier 3 10th Birthday Mailbox member) you will receive one of the other prizes

Please note that these Birthday QRates will only be available until 23:59 MHQ on July 31st. Good luck to those seeking out the MechaniC4K3 Blueprints!

We hope you enjoy the other prizes in the pool as well!

Munzee on!

You’re in for a Reel Treat with these Go Fishing specials!

Have you ever gone fishing? Whether you’re a practiced hand or have never touched a fishing pole, our new Go Fishing specials will make it easy to cast a line! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on July 9th, Go Fishing specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on August 8th.

Go Fishing Specials

These classic tools will be released in waves, but will end at a total of 700 Freshwater Fishing Poles and 700 Saltwater Fishing Poles. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find fishing poles at the following munzees near you:

  • Freshwater Fishing Pole:
  • Saltwater Fishing Pole
    • Blue Colored Virtuals:
      • Virtual Blue Violet
      • Virtual Blue
      • Virtual Cadet Blue
      • Virtual Periwinkle
      • Virtual Cornflower
      • Virtual Blue Green
      • Virtual Pacific Blue
      • Virtual Cerulean
      • Virtual Robin Egg Blue
      • Virtual Indigo
      • Virtual Turquoise Blue
    • Sapphires
    • All Stages of Submarine
    • Beach Places

Both will be worth 150 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! Freshwater Fishing Poles will be attracted to Physical Magnets, while Saltwater Fishing Poles 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 Freshwater Fishing Pole, up to three Red Fishing Bobber Munzees will scatter nearby, like Feathers. Similarly, when you capture a Saltwater Fishing Pole, up to three Green Fishing Bobber Munzees will scatter nearby. These munzees will stay on the map for 4 hours or when captured, but the amount of points you’ll get depends on what you catch!

When you capture a Bobber Munzee, your catch will be revealed, similar to the 1st/2nd/3rd Place Results of the #WorldBicycleDay specials. At launch you can expect to see the Smelt and Rainbow Trout from Red Fishing Bobbers, and the King Mackerel and Bonefish from the Green Fishing Bobbers. More types of fish will appear as the month goes on, so make sure to keep an eye out! And don’t forget — fish aren’t the only things that can be found in the water!

Badges

There will be five badges to earn for these specials. Three are based on the total number of Go Fishing specials you capture, but just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! The remaining two badges are based on capturing each of the different Fish Munzees as they appear in the wild. You can see the first badge below:

Candy Worms- Capture one Go Fishing special.

We hope you are ready to tackle these new specials!

Munzee on!

Birthday QRate Spoiler!

If you’re a Tier 3 member of the 10th Birthday Mailbox, there’s a reason why the requirements are set to just 25 physical captures — we wanted you to open it ASAP! Inside the Birthday QRate, you will receive a fully-built MechaniC4K3 that auto-deploys. You will also receive the Blueprint to rebuild it as many times as you like with the Cogs you’ve earned from Daily ZeeOps. Remember that you’ll need to head to the Redeem Store to do so!

MechaniC4K3 Details

The MechaniC4K3 is a temporary POB. It will deploy on your account when you complete the requirements to open the Birthday QRate awarded from the 10th Birthday Mailbox. The mailbox must be capped on July 3rd 00:01-23:59 MHQ time to receive the Birthday QRate. It will stay on the map until it has been captured 10 times, when it will be archived on your account. After the tenth capture a MechaniC4K3 will be “crumbled” which results in more points for the capper.

MechaniC4K3 will bounce to certain virtual munzees (listed below) for the first 9 captures, but after being capped 9 times it will land on a physical munzee where it can now be crumbled. If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

Points

  • Deploy: 1,000
  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 150
  • Crumble (10th Cap): 500

You can find these terrifying treats rolling to the following landing pads every 3 hours or when captured:

  • Greenies
  • Mysteries
  • Elementals:
    • Fire Mystery
    • Air Mystery
    • Electric Mystery
  • Zodiacs:
    • Cancer Western Zodiac
    • Rabbit Chinese Zodiac
    • Anubis Egyptian Zodiac
  • All Virtual Colors
  • Gaming:
    • Surprise
    • Sir Prize Wheel
      • Does not award prizes when capturing again
  • Places:
    • Entertainment
    • Drink Depot

MechaniC4K3 will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture MechaniC4K3s on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same MechaniC4K3 visits you. MechaniC4K3s are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access MechaniC4K3s by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

Deploying a MechaniC4K3 will earn you the Blueprint badge shown below. There is also a line of capture badges that you can earn for MechaniC4K3 captures! You can see the first badge in this line below.

We hope you enjoy unwrapping Day 3 of the 10th Birthday Mailbox! Make sure to cap it each day so you don’t miss out!

Otherwise, if you still haven’t joined the club yet and would like to do so now, click HEREIf you purchase a Tier 3 membership TODAY you can still get a Birthday QRate as long as you deploy and cap your 10th Birthday Mailbox before 23:59 MHQ time on July 3rd.

Lastly, if you want to check out what today’s Greeting Card looks like, or review past day’s goodies, you can check out the blog post HERE. Please note that that blog post may not immediately have the latest info as we cannot pre-schedule updates, but we’ll do so as soon as we can!

Universals are Back for our 10th Birthday!

When we were teasing the release of the 10th Birthday Mailbox, we asked what birthday-related things you were hoping to see. Some of you mentioned Universals, and we were happy to know that you were interested in them making a comeback as well, since one was already in the works! Get your all new 10th Birthday Universal HERE!

Similar to our thoughts with the Bash from the Past Universal, if you’ll be attending a 10th Birthday Event but don’t feel safe touching and scanning others’ Personal Tags, ask other attendees to share their Universal code (if they have one) online so you can scan it from your home. Of course, the same goes if you are not attending any events but want to join in on the fun virtually — play your way!

Universally United

Featuring some of the golden trophy designs used in the app during the past 10 years, it has the best of both Social and Personal Munzee functionality as other players can capture it from anywhere in the world AND activity on it will earn you points. However, as this makes it incredibly valuable, we are limiting it to 1 per player. You can find this limited edition Universal HERE!

This 10th Birthday Universal is a limited release item only available through August 2 at 10:00 MHQ.

A Universal has the same point structure as a regular Personal:

  • Capture: mystery random points 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45
  • CapOn: sum of 50 between player capture and residual
    • Example: player capture = 30, owner residual = 20. Total = 50
  • Deploy: 100 points (only deploy it once with no proximity or expiration!)
  • **Boosters will have no effect on Universal points.

You can find your Universal in the My Social Munzees section of the app, or the corresponding page on the website.

Unlike the Bash from the Past Universals, these 10th Birthday Universals will be auto-deployed upon purchase!

For more information, check out the Help Guide article.

Celebrate In Style!

We’ve also put together a collection of Munzee 10th Birthday gear so you can dress like King Midas! Alongside the new Universal you can dress for success by checking out the whole collection in the FT Online Store HERE!

Munzee on!

July Garden Gnome Details

What Gnome Skin can you look forward to receiving in July? The out-of-the-park Baseball Garden Gnome! Like the other gnomes, the Baseball 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 (June’s) capture streak. Once the skin is awarded in July, 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 home run hitters sprinting to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, the Baseball Garden Gnome will scatter up to 3 NEW Gnome Catcher’s Caps nearby when it is captured!

Like the other Gnome Hats, the Gnome Catcher’s Cap 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.

The rewards for Gnome Hats are as follows:

  • 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 Baseball Garden Gnome:

We hope you don’t strike out while earning July’s Gnome Skin! Don’t forget to keep your streak up through July — you’ll need to in order to earn the August Gnome Skin!

RUMbots and Blueprints and Cogs! Oh my!

Last month’s Spyderbot Squashing Initiative was successful in decreasing the number of Spyderbots on the map, but without changes to the Spyderbots themselves, the numbers have climbed back up again. To keep the bouncers more varied and fun for players to chase after, we’ve created a new credit called a “Cog” which will replace the Spyderbot as the Day 7 Daily ZeeOps reward.

Paired with Blueprints, you’ll be able to use those Cogs to deploy new tPOBs of your choosing. If you started playing Munzee more than half a year ago, you’ll be happy to know that past Blueprints you’ve collected will be of use! However, please note that tPOBs deployed using this new system have been rebuilt to offer a more consistent experience. This means things like point values and scatters remain the same as the originals, but expiration triggers and badge lines are different. If you missed out on any of those past Blueprints, you’ll find some of them available in the Freeze Tag Store. Like many of our other items, Blueprint availability will be on rotation.

If you have the right Blueprint, instead of using the 5 Cogs you’ll receive upon completing your Day 7 Daily ZeeOps mission to deploy a Spyderbot, now you have the option of saving up Cogs to deploy something more powerful, like a *L.A.S.E.R. Shark. The choice will be yours within the options given.

Don’t worry if you have any Spyderbots out on the map — those will remain. As mentioned above, moving forward Daily ZeeOps will award Cogs instead of the Spyderbot directly. Of course, not all tPOBs are created equal, so different amounts of Cogs are required to convert to each tPOB type.

You’ll find all the details and conversion rates at munzee.com/redeem. These rewards/rates may change from time to time. You will see your available list of blueprints on the Redeem page. If you don’t see the blueprint you’ll need to find the location to purchase or earn it. Cogs are currently only available as Daily ZeeOps rewards, but this may change in the future. There are many options out there for us to use and award these Cogs as prizes!

RUMBot Details

What better way to launch Cogs than with some new tPOBs to build? To continue support of our Authorized Resellers, we’ve developed RUMbots! Please welcome these very special swashbucklers color-coded to match each Reseller’s shop!

Similar to the Spyderbot, RUMbots are temporary POBs that will remain on the map until they have been captured 5 times. They will be available at our Authorized Resellers’ shops some time today. When you purchase a RUMbot  from a Reseller, you will receive a fully-built RUMbot that auto-deploys. You will also receive the Blueprint to rebuild it when you have earned enough Cogs in the future. Interested? You can get links to shop all of our resellers HERE!

Points

  • Deploy: 300
  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 100

You can find these worldly warriors sailing to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

RUMbots of ANY type will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture RUMbots on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same RUMbot visits you. RUMbots are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access RUMbots by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

Deploying a RUMbot will earn you the Blueprint badge. You can see the badge for the Gold’n Coins RUMbot as an example below.

There is also a line of capture badges that you can earn for RUMbot captures! You can see the first badge in this line below.

We hope you look forward to dueling these droids!

Munzee on!

 

*The 3 L.A.S.E.R. Shark blueprints will only be available through completing the Secret ZeeOps. Did you miss out on one of them? Stay tuned…

On Your Mark, Get Set, GO! #WorldBicycleDay Specials!

UPDATE: as of 6/17/21, another latecomer, Tandem Twins, will be out on the map! It is a virtual special, so it will behave exactly like the Toy Trike and Bicentennial Bicycle. We have also extended the capture badge line so there are now 6 badges to earn!

UPDATE: as of 6/10/21, World Bicycle Day specials will now bounce around the map until 23:59 on June 30th. This has also been updated below.

In addition, Fancy Flat Lou will also scatter the Starting Line, Midway, and Finish Line munzees, which will reveal her own version of the random race result icons. Caps of Fancy Flat Lou will NOT count towards the capture badges described below, but caps of her Starting Line, Midway, and Finish Line munzees WILL. We’ve also extended the badge line so now there are 5 badges to earn!

Tomorrow is World Bicycle Day, which was established by the United Nations General Assembly due to bicycles’ historical significance and their many benefits as a transportation solution: “simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable.” As our Global Events Director, Louise, can attest, the humble bicycle can be the start of something great, and is definitely worthy of being featured in our app! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on June 2nd, World Bicycle Day specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on June 30th.

World Bicycle Day Specials

Riders will be racing in waves, but should reach a total of 1,200 — 300 per bike. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find these speed demons at the following landing pads:

Each bike will be worth 150 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! Champion Choppers and Unicorn Unicycles will be attracted to Physical Magnets, while Toy Trikes and Bicentennial Bicycles will be attracted to Virtual Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Racers Ready

These bouncers also have a unique twist to them! When you capture a World Bicycle Day special, a Starting Line Munzee will scatter nearby, similar to a Laser Trail. This means only you (the capper) will see the Starting Line Munzee on the map. Once you start the race you’ll need to find the Midway Munzee scattered nearby, followed by the the Finish Line Munzee! If you find you’re just out of range, you’ll be happy to know that you can use Rover Treats to have Rover fetch them for you!

Additionally, when you capture a Finish Line Munzee, you’ll receive the random race result icon as well! They behave the same way as the Jack In Zee Box icons in that only the Finish Line Munzee will be visible on the map, but the result will be revealed once you capture it.
