Flat Day The 13th Pt 3 Specials

March seems like an innocent enough month, but sometimes when the stars align, it is capable of great evil. Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar taught us to “Beware the Ides of March,” but it’s got nothing on Flat Day The 13th Part 3! Starting at 13:00 MHQ on March 12th, Flat Day the 13th Part 3 specials will begin bouncing around the map until 13:00 MHQ on March 17th.

Flat Day The 13th Part 3: The Return! Details

If you want to get caught up on the storyline, here are our posts for Part 1 and Part 2. This year, 1,300 of these specials will bounce to all Flat Friends and Virtual Colors every 6 hours or when captured.

This lucky number will be worth 130 points for both the Capture and CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! The ominous virtual MOB will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtual Colors! 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 four badges to earn based on the number of Flat Day The 13th Part 3 specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 4 badges will be kept a secret!  However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Flat Matt claims he’s not superstitious, but opening an umbrella indoors will only cause trouble! Hopefully his luck turns around on FLAT DAY THE 13TH!

SPECIAL UPDATE: ALL Flats will be on the map for this time period! Also a special 13% off Flat Sale including Flat Matt available ONLY in the Flat Pack! Sale ends Monday!

We hope you’re ready to face these foul flat specials once again!

Munzee on!

ZeeOps- Operation: RE:vive (February 2020)

At the end of last year, ZeeOps HQ’s Neurological Memory Technology was under attack by The Rising Sons. Although it was believed that enemies had hacked ZeeOps HQ’s Neurological Memory Technology, it turns out it was a sleeper cell within our ranks. In fact it was the recently rescued Director Zee that forced agents to relive previous ZeeOps missions! It seems the Rising Sons really did a number on Director Zee…

Unfortunately, we’ve had to purge much of the corrupted data, and Director Zee is still on the mend after he was brainwashed by the Rising Sons. Although this is disheartening, we have found a silver lining: our training prompts appear to be jogging some of the Director’s memories! It’s up to you to help the Director regain control by reliving specific past missions. Can you revive the heart of ZeeOps HQ?

February 2020 ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You will only have until February 29th at 23:59 MHQ to complete this month’s Operations. There are only two Operation types available for this month- the Basic Op (3 days) and the Advanced Op (7 days). The window of time to complete missions may be shorter, but we believe in you!

You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Remember that if you hit a snag at any point in your Operation you can use the Mission Mulligan feature to keep going! This month features a variety of munzee types so be sure to stock up in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

By completing any Operation this month you’ll earn the “Operation: RE:vive” badge.

 

This month’s Missions are as follows:

Level 1

  • Defensive Training – Deploy at least 10 munzees.
  • Offensive Training – Capture at least 25 munzees.
  • Basic Training + – Earn at least 1000 points.
  • Seeing Stars I – Capture at least 15 Zodiac Munzees of any type.
  • Bountiful Bouncers – Capture at least 6 of any type of POB.

Level 2

  • Group Training – Earn at least 500 cap-on points.
  • Precious Stone Stockpiler – Capture at least 20 jewels.
  • Spurious Stones – Deploy at least 5 jewels.
  • Exemplary Evolutions – Deploy at least 10 physical or virtual Evolution Munzees.
  • It’s Not Easy Being Green – Capture at least 15 and deploy at least 5 Greenies.

Completing Operations will give you some hard earned rewards as well.

This month’s rewards are:

Basic Op
2 Virtuals, 2 Virtual Colors, 1 Sapphire, 1 Briefcase, 125 Zeds and 5 ZeeCred

Advanced Op

2 Virtuals, 2 Virtual Colors, 1 Surprise, 1 Prize Wheel, 2 Temporary Virtuals, 1 Magnet, 1 Night Vision Goggles, 300 Zeds and 10 ZeeCred

2019 In Review

Last year was definitely a year of change as we released an update that was a long time coming — Munzee 4.0! We appreciate all of the players, old and new, who have continued to support the game. It is for you that we are constantly dreaming up ways to make the game more dynamic and the app more friendly! On that note, we’d like to celebrate some key points that the Munzee Community has achieved last year:

Recruiting New Players

As a worldwide geo-location based game, our aim is to continue to expand and grow the community. After all, it’s more fun playing with more people!

  • 65,495 new players started playing Munzee in 2019
    • 83% more than 2018

Recycling Program Revamp

In April we announced QRew, a junior version of the ZeeQRew program, which allowed players to replace missing or damaged Munzees once they met certain requirements. Along with this update we also launched the new QRewzee Munzee, which gave the added incentive of receiving more points after replacing and capturing newly replaced Munzees. This seemed to have a tremendous effect on the number of Munzees that have been replaced over the past year.

  • 95,131 Munzees replaced in 2019
    • 200% more than 2018

New Map Layers

In June we split Physical and Virtual Munzees to sit on their own map layer, along with Flat, Temporary and Event Munzees each being on their own layers as well. This essentially doubled the amount of space available for new Munzees to be deployed, which in turn provided more Munzees to be captured.

  • 80,034,191 Munzees captured in 2019
  • 5,419,442 Munzee deployed in 2019
    • 19% more than 2018

Munzee Events

In September we streamlined our Event Process by making Event Packages available in the Freeze Tag Store. Since event hosts usually purchase the same items for their events every time, we developed different packages based on commonly ordered items. Of course, any additional requests are still handled by our trusty Global Events Director Louise! Purchasing these new event packages sends event hosts all the information they need in an automatic e-mail. We also updated our Help Guide to help walk event hosts through the process!

  • 517 events held worldwide in 2019
  • 12,648 attendees total in 2019

Clan Wars Revamp

In October we released a major update to the clan wars system, allowing teams of less than 10 players to participate and the ability for clans to recruit throughout the month. Along with this update we added a brand new Clan Wars section in the app, which allows players to create/join clans and track their progress on challenge requirements for each battle. We’re ecstatic to see that this has encouraged more players to join in on Clan Wars!

  • 9% more players participating in Clan Wars than 2018
  • 25% more clans reached Level 1 or higher in 2019 after the update
  • 52% more clans reached Level 3 in 2019 after the update

If you haven’t already…

… please fill out our latest Gameplay Survey! Your opinion will help us make decisions and plans for the future of Munzee!

Once again, thank you for everything you have done to help grow the game and support other members of the community!

Munzee on!

Fall Into Spring Event packages will be available in the Freeze Tag Online Store as of the publication of the blog. However, they are only applicable to events occurring from March 17 to April 19. It’s important to purchase a package as soon as possible so that you can let us know your art request if you’re purchasing a package containing a badge and icon.

Each package features a unique host badge for themed fun, with each badge (pictured above) depending on which package is purchased. The package options are:

All packages also contain an Attendee Badge. Take your Fall Into Spring Event to the next level with additional add-ons that you can purchase through the Munzee Events Team. We’ve cleaned up our list of offerings so be sure to check out https://calendar.munzee.com/pricing to see what’s available including the ALL NEW EventPak! Once you purchase your package reply directly to the “Event Package Added” email you receive and the Event Team will help you with add-on items.

So get those events on the calendar, purchase your Fall Into Spring Packages, and start communication for artwork requests nice and early please! As Trish’s diary fills up, we will have to move to generic artwork, so act as soon as possible if you are seeking custom art!

We’ll also have more details regarding an upcoming community competition closer to the start of the Fall Into Spring events. This will be similar to the Best Dressed competitions at past events and players will be able to win a unique badge. Stay tuned for more! 

Once more, the Munzee Events Team is here to walk you through every step of the updated event hosting process, with each detail outlined on the Help Guide for full access. Start the year fresh and catch up with friends you missed during the holidays!

Let’s Fall into Spring!

Munzee on!

Ornament Design Contest Winner!

We received some beautiful entries for our Ornament Design Contest.

As promised, we closed the submissions on 15:00 MHQ time on December 3 and chose our top 4 for players to vote on via our Facebook post.

We checked the votes on 15:00 MHQ time on December 6.

The winner, by a landslide, was dizzamel!

Her clever use of cute Pouch Creature art appealed to both Munzee and WallaBee players! Many who voted also mentioned that although all the designs were well done, this design in particular embodied the spirit of Christmas the best!

Congratulations to dizzamel! She will be receiving her own ornament pressed by MHQ staff, and munzees from the CZeeO himself!

Let Vietnam’s Global Grub Warm You Up!

The weather outside is frightful, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to feast! As we head into our final month for our Global Grub releases, we’re thrilled to announce the addition of Vietnam Global Grub specials to the map starting today at 15:00 MHQ time!

A total of 12 Vietnam Global Grub specials will be deployed. They will join other virtual Global Grub specials such as USA, Ukraine, FranceAustralia, and more! They will bounce to regular virtuals and colored virtuals every 12 hours or when captured.

Points

  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Every time a Global Grub special is captured, you will earn a badge featuring a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country. Capturing the Vietnam Global Grub will earn you the following special badge:

 

Pho is Vietnam’s answer to other countries’ popular noodle soups, such as the Japanese Ramen or Korean Ramyun. However, you’ll find they are vastly different — looking at the ingredients alone, you can see some clear differences. Pho noodles are made from rice flour, which gives them a slightly translucent white color. In addition, Pho puts the emphasis on fresh herbs and vegetables, which offer a lighter alternative for noodle soup fans!

The Global Grub specials will bounce around the globe for the remainder of the year before leaving the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ time. You will have until then to try your luck capturing these very rare specials. Don’t forget that our overall Global Grub capture line allows you more opportunities than ever to earn Global Grub badges!

We hope you have all enjoyed our Global Grub specials throughout the year! Let’s end 2019 in the tastiest way possible!

Munzee on!

It’s the holiday Zee-son! Although the American Freeze Tag offices were closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday, we wanted to get ahead of the game a bit and kick off our Zee-sonal Sale Weekend early! Formerly known as Cyber Munzday, we’re taking a bit more of a laid back approach this year and running the sales from now, Friday, November 29th at 10:00 MHQ through Tuesday, December 3rd at 10:00 MHQ.

We’ve got quite a few sales including discounts, previously unreleased items, and some throwback classics as well! You can find a preview of the sales information below!

Ornament Design Contest!

Last week we saw how creative and crafty our players are with our mini origami contest on Facebook! The winning origami sculptures stood out to us because they had a nice Christmas theme going on… so we thought, why not double the fun by having players design us a Christmas ornament?

  • 1 submission per person
  • Must provide a .PNG, .PDF, or .AI file using this PDF Ornament Template, with your original design on it.
  • Can be any 2D medium (pencil, paint, graphic design, etc) but it does have to be sent to us in a finalized digital version for us to make it into an ornament.
  • Cannot feature any licensed character designs, but you can use Munzee artwork.

Once we reach the deadline, we’ll choose the finalists — then we’ll open it up to votes from the community! We’ll check the votes at 15:00 MHQ time on December 6 and see who won!

The winner will receive their own ornament crafted by MHQ, some munzees, and the knowledge that their design will be available to all in the Freeze Tag Store!

Ready to get in the holiday spirit and do some crafting?!

Munzee on!
