Flat Day The 13th Part 5: Unlucky Objects

You guessed it! There’s only 1 Friday the 13th this year, so we wanted to make sure this one was extra-special. Continuing our tradition of themed specials, this year we’ve got some Unlucky Objects for you to collect! Please note that as they are MOBs, caps of them will not count towards any Flat requirements in Clan Wars or ZeeOps, though they do look similar to our Flat Objects. On top of that, we’ve got some limited-time and not-so-limited-time badges to earn, a sale, and DOUBLE POINTS on certain types, so make sure to read all the details below!

Unlucky Object Specials

From the period of Friday, May 13th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, May 29th at 23:59 MHQ, Unlucky Object Specials will bounce around on the map! We’ll be releasing the Objects in waves, but will end at 313 of each Object, for a total of 2191 Specials. They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

Physical Unlucky Objects Virtual Unlucky Objects
Points Points
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
Landing Pads Landing Pads

These specials will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture an Unlucky Object on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Unlucky Object visits you. These munzees will not be blastable. They will be attracted to magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Unlucky Object specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Badges

We’ve created 10 NEW Badges for you to earn via specific gameplay actions! As four of them are time-sensitive, here are the details for those first:

  • The 4 time-sensitive badges will only be available for the same time period as the Unlucky Objects are bouncing around on the map.
    • 2 of the badges are based on the total number of Unlucky Objects capped. You can see what the first badge in the line looks like below.
    • 1 of the badges is based on capping one of each of the Unlucky Objects, so make sure to cap as many as you can!
    • The final badge has very special requirements which we’ll keep a secret for now… think you can figure it out?

Ladder Lapper- Capture 1 Unlucky Object of any type.

The remaining six badges can be earned at any time, so we hope you’ll enjoy discovering them as you play!

Sale on Flats!

Better your chances at capping an Unlucky Object by deploying a Flat Munzee near you!

If you don’t have any Flat Munzees in your inventory, all Flats except Fancy Flats are 20% off from the period of Friday, May 13th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, May 15th at 23:59 MHQ at the Freeze Tag Store! The “FLATDAY13TH2022” discount code should be automatically applied.

In addition, we’ve also got Kill Them With Kindness Cards back in stock!

You can see the entire collection here: https://store.freezetag.com/collections/flat-friends

Double Points Details

From the period of Friday, May 13th at 00:01 MHQ through Sunday, May 15th at 23:59 MHQ, enjoy double points on Unlucky Objects, Flat Objects, and Jason 4Zees Nomads.

In addition, Premium Members will also enjoy double points on Flat Friends!

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

Need MORE Pets? Mari’s Flat Object is Actually 2-in-1!

You didn’t really think we’d celebrate National Pet Day with just Pet Rocks, did you? If so — consider it a late April Fool’s prank! With so many loveable pets out there, we knew we had to include a crowd-pleasing, cute, and cuddly animal in the festivities. We got more than we bargained for, as you’ll see — one became two!

The seventh Flat Object is brought to you by Mari, our productive Product Manager! She is the one who keeps MHQ running like a well-oiled machine! Thanks to her diligence in planning things well in advance, we’ve managed to meet a lot of our goals on schedule, rather than 1,000 hours each time! If you’ve attended any of the Munzee Events we’ve hosted in the past, you may have met Mari, but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know her, or would like a refresher, you can check out her most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Mari’s Flat Object is similar to Wylie’s in that it may be more accurately described as Flat Pets — but as it follows the same structure as other Flat Objects, we’ll still call it one for consistency. Say hello to the Flat Cats, based on her cats Benji and Burr! Benji is the orange one and Burr is the black one – they are brothers and the bestest friends in the whole world! 😺 They are the stars of many a Zoom call (and possibly the only things keeping Mari from going insane while stuck at home — call it the opposite of the crazy cat lady effect)! Read on to learn more!

Flat Cats Details

The Flat Cats join the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Flat Cats
Points
  • Deploy: 19
  • Capture: Split 89 points with a minimum of 19 Points
  • CapOn: Split 89 points with a minimum of 19 Points
Additional Info
  • Capture Radius: 300 feet
  • Blastable
  • Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own
  • Filters: “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types”

For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat Cats, which, as hinted above, feature some cute cat accessoreez and hijinks. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy catching Flat Cats and learning a bit more about Mari in the process!

Munzee on!

Stake Your Claim on the Map With This NEW Flat Object!

It’s been a little over 2 weeks since Munzee Madness 11, and though it was still a multi-stage event, it feels like it ended so quickly. We really missed attending events in-person and seeing players we’ve known for years, along with some new faces! As its first event was in 2012, Munzee Madness is the longest-running annual event hosted by players. It was originated by one of our Resellers, 1849, who owns Gold’n Coins! This quick history lesson is just one example of Resellers helping to maintain and grow the Munzee community — so in honor of ALL our Resellers, we’ve created a NEW game piece just for them!

The sixth Flat Object is a little different from the previous objects, as it was not designed by one specific team member — instead, we’ve developed it to represent our Resellers! As Munzee is a global game, we appreciate that our Resellers make it easier for local players to get their hands on Munzee stickers and other physical items. On top of that, as mentioned above, they are often a huge part of maintaining and growing the local Munzee community.

This Flat (and the badges associated with them) will be continuing the pirate theme we’ve established for our Resellers. Read on to learn more!

Flat RUM Details

The Flat RUM joins the Flats as a virtual type. If you are interested in picking one up, they will be available at most of our Authorized Resellers’ shops some time today. The links to shop all of our resellers are below!

Flat RUM
Points
  • Deploy: 19
  • Capture: Split 83 with a minimum of 18
  • CapOn: Split 83 with a minimum of 18
Additional Info
  • Capture Radius: 300 feet
  • Blastable
  • Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own
  • Filters: In “Virtual – Flats” or “All Flat Types” filter
  • Counts towards both Flat and RUM reqs for Clan Wars and ZeeOps
Store Links

For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat RUM, which, as hinted above, feature the gear you need for a nautical voyage. You can see the first of each below!

ZEE-Dayz Coming Soon!

Similar to last week’s MunzPak ZEE-Dayz, expect a ZEE-Dayz event for non-trial Premium Members kicking off Thursday at 00:01 MHQ! Flat Munzees will see double their normal point values!

If you are shooting for the the badge and exclusive bouncer for hosting an event every month this year, why not plan your March event for this weekend? Your attendees will be raking in the points! To refer to the details for the Monthly Event Packages again, click HERE!

We hope you enjoy capturing the flags and embracing the pirate life!

Munzee on!

Are You an Animal Lover? Then You’ll Love Wylie’s Flat Object!

Now that we’re well into 2022, it’s just about time to release our first Flat Object of the year! With National Love Your Pet Day and National Walking the Dog Day coming up, it seemed like the perfect time for this next game piece to come into the spotlight. Expect to see lots of Munzee Merch in the store based on its design in the coming weeks!

The fifth Flat Object is brought to you by Wylie, our powerhouse Production Specialist! If you ever ordered physical products from the Freeze Tag Store, she has been involved in every step of the process in bringing that product to you! From designing to manufacturing to shipping, she can do it all! If you’ve attended any of the Munzee Events we’ve hosted in the past, you may have met Wylie, but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know her, or would like a refresher, you can check out her most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Wylie’s Flat Object may actually be more accurately described as a Flat Pet — but as it follows the same structure as other Flat Objects, we’ll still call it one for consistency. Say hello to the Flat Murray, based on one of the great loves of Wylie’s life — her pet Corgi (sorry Dylan!). Like his mom and dad, Murray has a flair for fashion, so these pups (and the badges associated with them) will be dressed to the nines. Read on to learn more!

Flat Murray Details

The Flat Murray 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 91 points with a minimum of 19 Points

CapOn: Split 91 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat Murray 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 Murray, which, as hinted above, feature some cute Corgi costumes and accessoreez. You can see the first of each below!

Remembering Griff Halliwell

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Griff Halliwell just last weekend. In the Munzee community, he was most widely known as the creator of popular Munzee tool http://eeznum.co.uk/

A Brief Munzee Bio

Griff enjoyed playing Munzee with his wife, Lesley. They shared the georiffles account and were even featured as Players of the Week in 2015 — you can check out the blog post HERE to learn more about them.

Aside from regularly capping and deploying munzees and participating in Clan Wars with their Plankers I clanmates, Griff and Lesley have also been a pleasant presence at Munzee Events throughout the years. In fact, they met Rob, our CZeeO, long before officially becoming family this year (if you read the POTW blog post, you’ll discover that they are Lou’s Uncle and Auntie).

The Full Story

Like many of our other players Griff and Lesley began as geocachers, under the name georiffles. Griff introduced the entire family to location based gaming, as noted in their POTW blog. Over the past 6 years since that blog he has continued to build out his website full of tools. The Munzee team will work to keep Griff’s Eeznum website running since it is a popular tool amongst the community. Griff always enjoyed testing his coding and learning new skills by finding ways to give players tools to track their own stats. He was one of the first 3rd party developers to build tools for players to use. He focused on giving unique user based stats, like how many of your own bouncers you had capped. He built maps with information to show all of the unique one of a kind munzees so players could find them easily and plan trips to cap them, or just monitor them from home for fun. The most recent, and fun, was for the Golden Tickets.

Griff’s daily routine included checking his treehouse and Skyland for bouncers, searching the area for others and monitoring for any new gamepieces launched by the team. He was always quick to implement new features and tools on his website. He worked well with Sam, the creator of Cuppazee, who will be helping the team with the Eeznum website and possibly incorporating some of his tools.

Outside Munzee Griff was an avid wind surfer and enjoyed spending as much time as possible on the water. He was a gamer at heart from the earliest gaming systems through to the most current. Over the last 3 years he spent countless hours on Fortnite playing solo, or online in squads with Rob, and Louise’s two boys Charlie and Harry. He was recently getting into making YouTube videos of those matches and documenting his Fortnite highlights.

Memorial Garden

Griff will be missed by his family, his friends, the Munzee team and community. The team is building a memorial garden but the location hasn’t been chosen yet. We hope you’ll check back next week to deploy a munzee in his memory.

Update November 24th the garden is ready, click here for the spreadsheet. Thanks to Dale from Space Coast Geo Store for the help building it.

Food for Thought

This may not specifically apply to Griff’s shared georiffles account because Lesley continues to play and we hope she will. His passing has reminded us of some feedback we’ve received from players over time. Specifically requesting a change to Inactive accounts to those that own bouncers: you may recall that when a player is Inactive, at certain times throughout the year their bouncers will return as RetireMyths, Zombie Pouch Creatures, and Phantom Flats. Instead of those undead-inspired bouncers, it was suggested that the bouncers return as angel versions of themselves. We thought this would be a good starting point for a new type of account status — rather than getting rid of the current way Inactive accounts work, as accounts can become Inactive for a variety of reasons — we can create a “Memorial” status or something like it. We are currently in the brainstorming phase for this feature, but we’ll definitely announce any updates when ready.

He also mentioned in his POTW post a wishlist item of a special pin for those players who reached 1 million points. It’s been a long time since that was considered so it’s back on the table for conversation.

We think Griff would be happy that his work will continue on, and his ideas and life will inspire future growth in the game he loved so much. Our sincere condolences to Lesley, and to Griff’s family and friends. May he rest in peace.

-Team Munzee

Put Pen to Paper — or Rather, Fingers to Keys — With Craig’s Flat Object!

At MHQ, we like to keep our players on their toes. We had quite a gap between the Flat Disc Golf Basket and the Flat Flashlight, and now, just over a month later, another new Flat Object?! Well, this month is National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo, so we couldn’t pass up this opportunity, as you’ll see! 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 fourth Flat Object is brought to you by Craig, the CEO! Don’t be intimidated by his title — Craig is one of the more outgoing members of the team who enjoys chatting with players at Munzee Events and learning what makes them tick (not that the rest of us don’t enjoy it — it just seems to come naturally to Craig, without any shyness or awkwardness). 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!

In his spare time, Craig turns to writing to give his creative juices an outlet. Did you know that he’s written plays that have been produced by theater companies?! It was definitely exciting for us to learn! For his Flat Object, he decided on a beloved symbol of writers everywhere — the Typewriter! Read on to learn more!

Flat Typewriter Details

The Flat Typewriter 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 86 points with a minimum of 19 Points (Maxwell Smart’s Agent Number)

CapOn: Split 86 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat Typewriter 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 Typewriter, which feature actual books and plays written by Craig. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy collecting all these written works and learning a bit more about Craig in the process!

Munzee on!

More Evolutions for Mitmegu!

With the release of the Void Mystery last month, all the conditions for NEW Mitmegu Evolutions (aka “Megu-lutions”) to emerge have been met! To celebrate we’ve also expanded how many Mitmegus you can own! Mitmegu and other shape-shifting friends have also been added back to the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE! Read on to learn more!

NEW Evolution Details

As before, unlike other Pouch Creatures, Mitmegu will change forms depending on what it lands on and capture streaks will not impact the changing critter’s evolution.

With the addition of these evolutions, the regular Mitmegu is now only cappable on Greenies.

However, if the Mitmegu lands on an Elemental Mystery, it will change forms!

  • If Mitmegu lands on a Water Mystery it turns into Jootmegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on an Earth Mystery it turns into Rohimegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on a Fire Mystery it turns into Lokemegu
  • NEW! If Mitmegu lands on an Air Mystery it turns into Ohkmegu
  • NEW! If Mitmegu lands on an Electric Mystery it turns into Murinmegu
  • NEW! If Mitmegu lands on a Void Mystery it turns into Urgasmegu

As a refresher, the points for Mitmegu and its Megu-lutions are as follows:

  • Mitmegu
    • Deploy: 250
    • Capture: 200
    • CapOn: 100
    • CapOn (Host Owner): 50
  • Megu-lutions
    • Capture: 400
    • CapOn: 100
    • CapOn (Host Owner): 50

Mitmegu will retain its number when it changes, and if you upgrade and change its name it will keep that name on all forms. Players can cap Mitmegu on their own munzees as well. You can find Mitmegu by turning on your “All Expiring Specials,” “All Limited Edition Specials,” or “All Pouch Creatures” filters. This new Pouch Creature WILL be attracted to physical magnets, but only as Mitmegu on Greenies.

Badges

Like the first batch, there will also be three badges to earn per variant. This means there are now 22 badges in the Mitmegu line (1 deploy badge + 3 capture badges * 7 forms).

Here are the first capture badges for the new Megu-lutions:

Shape Shifters Return to Store!

Remember you can now own multiple Mitmegu, so they have been added back in the Freeze Tag Online Store from 12:00 MHQ on Monday, October 4th to 12:00 MHQ on Monday, November 1st! You’ll find our other shape-shifting Pouch Creatures on sale as well!

 

The Mitmegu and its Megu-lutions are from our sister app WallaBee! Learn more about it and the other Pouch Creatures at our Help Guide article.

We hope you look forward to seeing some new creatures on the map!

Munzee On!

Are You Afraid of the Dark? Fight Back With Tamara’s Flat Object!

Time flies when you’re having fun! We’ve certainly enjoyed playing with Robbie’s Flat Disc Golf Basket — it had its own special, limited-time scatters, and was also part of the most recent Flat Day the 13th! Can you believe it was released all the way back in April?! 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 third Flat Object is brought to you by Tamara, a Product Manager in training! Many of you may not know Tamara as a lot of the things she does is behind-the-scenes — but for the past few years, you’ve all been reading her writing! For those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know her, or would like a refresher, you can check out her most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Tamara’s Flat Object features a humble tool you probably have in your home. As a fan of the mystery and horror genres, she’s created a Flat Flashlight game piece that should keep you well-equipped for the upcoming spooky season. Read on to learn more!

Flat Flashlight Details

The Flat Flashlight 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 96 points with a minimum of 19 Points (the year Scream came out)

CapOn: Split 96 points with a minimum of 19 Points

Flat Day The 13th Part 4: Left 4 Zeds

Last week was pretty wholesome with #NationalDiscGolfDay celebrations, so we bet you didn’t expect something on the opposite end of the spectrum so soon! This year for Flat Day the 13th, things are a little different as we’re introducing a permanent game piece instead of a bouncing special, so make sure to read all the details below!

NEW Nomad!

13 NEW Jason 4Zees Nomads have been unleashed on the map. Unlike other nomads, they will bounce every 6 hours or when captured.

Landing Pads:

  • All non-bouncing Flat Munzees:
    • Flat Friends:
      • Flat Rob
      • Flat Matt
      • Flat Lou
      • Flat Hammock
    • Flat Objects:
      • Flat DHS
      • Flat Disc Golf Basket

Points:

  • Capture: 513
  • CapOn (for host owner): 250

Additionally, the Jason 4Zees Nomads will scatter up to 3 NEW Killer Masks nearby when it is captured!

The Killer Mask will only be visible to the player who captured the Jason 4Zees Nomad and will scatter like Feathers! This means there are no CapOn points but you have thrilling results at stake:

  • Bad Result: lose 13 points
  • Good Result: 31 points and 13 Zeds

They’ll stay on the map for 2 hours after scattering. The capture radius is 300 feet for these. You won’t be able to use Rover Treats to capture them — Rover knows when he’s outmatched.

There will be 1 badge for unmasking Jason 4Zees. Since there’s only the 1 badge in this line, we want to keep it a secret for now. Jason 4Zees captures will also count toward the Nomad Munzee Badge Line.

To learn more about Nomads, check out the Help Guide article!

Limited Edition Badges

Other than the badge specifically for Jason 4Zees mentioned above, which will always be attainable as Nomads are permanent game pieces, there are 3 badges that will only be available from Thursday, August 12th at 12:00 MHQ through Monday, August 16th at 12:00 MHQ.

You can see what the first badge in the line looks like below:

Cruel-Aid Stand- Capture 13 Flat Munzees of any type during the Flat Day the 13th event in 2021.

Check our social media pages (FB|TWTR|IG) on Friday for a hint regarding one of the other badges!

Sale on Flats!

Better your chances at capping a Jason 4Zees Nomad by deploying a Flat Munzee near you!

If you don’t have any Flat Munzees in your inventory, we’ve got just the thing! For the same period as the Limited Edition Badges, we will be putting a special value pack in the Freeze Tag Online Store on sale!

It will include:

  • 1 of each non-bouncing Flat Munzee (Flat Rob, Flat Matt, Flat Lou, Flat Hammock, Flat DHS, and Flat Disc Golf Basket) for $13! That’s scary good, as it’s more than half off!

Please note that these packs are limited to 1 per player.

If you only need a specific type of flat, you’ll find that the individual listings will be discounted as well!

You can see the entire collection here: https://store.freezetag.com/collections/flat-day-the-13th

You can also make a trade with other players who have them stocked up!

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

Munzee on!

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!
