Prepare Your Appetites for Thailand Global Grub!

สุขสันต์วันสงกรานต์! Today marks the first day of Songkran, the Thai New Year’s national holiday! The next few days will be filled with festivals and festivities, so we thought it was only appropriate to join in the celebration with the launch of our Thailand Global Grub today at 15:00 MHQ time!

Thailand will be joining a variety of other countries, such as Japan, Greece, and China, as our latest Global Grub item to hit the map. The Thailand Global Grub will be a physical munzee, with four Thailand Global Grubs hitting the map in order to celebrate Songkran. The Global Grub items will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured.

Points

  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Have you capped a Global Grub Munzee yet? When a Global Grub is capped, the player will earn a special badge containing a unique dish of food from the country on the flag pin. Capturing the Thailand Global Grub will earn you this delicious, piping-hot badge:

There’s nothing like a steaming bowl of Tom Yam Goon to warm you up during a day of celebration. You can celebrate the festivities from home with a Tom Yam Goon recipe. This delicious soup is composed of shrimp stock, shrimp, lemongrass, Thai chilies, lime juice, fish sauce, kaffir lime leaves, and a number of other goodies. These delicious ingredients simmer together to form the perfect bowl of hot and sour soup!

Remember that all Global Grub items will be 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, which will be bouncing all around the world. We will be putting out an overall capture line in the future, so stay tuned for more exciting Global Grub news!

Sawasdee Wan Songkran!

Munzee On!

Munzee 4.0 Is Finally HERE! New Features and Updates Explained!

We know that you have all been patiently waiting for the new and improved 4.0 version of the Munzee app, and we are happy to announce that it has finally arrived! That’s right, the wait is over.

You can download the iOS version of the new app HERE!

You can download the Android version of the new app HERE!

This is an entirely new build, so you will not update your current version 3 of the Munzee app. Instead you will need to search for the new version in your phone’s app store. Please remember that the app may take some time to propagate, so if you don’t see it in the App or Google Play Store, just give it some time. We will be keeping version 3 of the app active temporarily, but we do plan to shut down that version in the near future, so just go ahead and download 4.0 today!

But before you jump into the newly updated game, complete with brand new features, allow us to break down some of our favorite things about 4.0!

The latest version of everyone’s favorite game is a foundation for us to build upon. We consider it a vision for the future, with additional tools being added regularly as we move forward. Due to limitations from version 3, we’ve had to delay some awesome features in the past, but this will limit us no more! We have some big ideas ahead, but for now let’s take a look at what 4.0 has to offer!

Main Feature Updates

  • New and improved map loading speed.
  • New square pins for Physical Munzees and round pins for Virtual Munzees.
  • Updated artwork to include all types in pin form to more precisely show the location of the munzee.
  • New interactive walkthrough tutorial hosted by our buddy the newly energized Rover.
  • Reorganization of filters into categories, making them easier to sort through.
  • Players can now combine multiple premium filters at a time.
  • Larger, cleaner font throughout the game.
  • Improved compass that more clearly indicates the Northern point.
  • Improved follow feature to keep player marker centered on the map.
  • New in-app announcements system that will deliver news directly to the players.

Additional Updates

  • The Munzee capture button at the bottom changes between square and round depending on the type selected on the map so you always know which type you’re looking for.
  • Pouch Creatures and Evolution Munzees now include stage numbers.
  • New “All Alternamyths” and “All Places” premium filters.
  • Filters are now applied immediately. Players do not need to save each time they choose filters.
  • Players can now see what filters they have set for each preset, making it easier to edit and make changes.
  • Magnet and Special timers now show down to the minutes/seconds.
  • Added a new “Inventory” section to the profile, making it more clear to new players what they have available to deploy.
  • Players can now quickly tap to capture from the List view using the new green arrow buttons, instead of sliding the entry in the list then tapping to cap.
  • Tapping on badge notifications in the activity feed now takes you to that specific badge in your collection. 
  • Added countdown timer to the leaderboards for when it will reset in MHQ time.

Share with Friends

We know that playing Munzee can be a bit overwhelming to new players, but many of our most diehard fans appreciate the complexity and pride that comes with mastering this multi-layered game. Luckily with our new in-app tutorial for new players, it’s easier than ever to introduce new players to Munzee. That’s why we’re asking our players to share 4.0 with their friends and family! 

As a limited time extension to our current Munzee Referral Program, we will host a referral contest starting next week! Help us share the new app and Grow the Game for a chance to earn a limited edition badge, prizes, and more! We’ll have more information next week, but this contest will not be retroactive, and it will only run from February 1 through 28.

While you’re waiting for those details, though, head over to the Freeze Tag Online Store and download a free Custom Referral Card. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to introduce new players to the game and get rewarded for it. The Custom Referral Card will contain your personal Referral code to share with new players. The more shares, the more rewards!

We will also be running several sales tomorrow in celebration of the 4.0 update release! There will be a separate blog post detailing those sales today at 12:00 MHQ, and all sales will begin at 12:15 MHQ.

We know this is long overdue, but we can’t explain enough how many possibilities this opens for the future. The whole team has worked so hard for this release, and we’re ready to keep the momentum moving forward! Thank you to the beta testers for their support (and constructive criticisms) throughout this process. This app would not be what it is today if it wasn’t for them.

Lastly we’d like to give a BIG thank you to all of our players for all of your patience. Thank you for the feedback! Thank you for helping us build the map! Thank you to the many who devote daily dedication to playing Munzee! We wouldn’t be here without you!

So go check out 4.0! Happy Hunting, and Munzee On!

Australia Day Means New Global Grub!

Australia Day is in full swing so we’re excited to announce another Global Grub special update. Following the success of Monday’s special flag of Switzerland munzee, our second Global Grub Munzee will be a virtual flag of Australia being deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. What better way to celebrate Australia Day than with a cheesymite scroll?! (If only you could eat it!)

Only one Australia Global Grub Munzee will be deployed, but who knows what the future will hold. The Australian flag Munzee will bounce to regular virtuals and colored virtuals every 12 hours or when captured.

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points


By capturing  the Australian Global Grub you’ll also earn the new Cheesymite Scroll badge! The Australian badge will equip players with — you guessed it— a cheesymite scroll. (If you aren’t native to Down Under, now’s a good time to do some Googling.) Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates.

Hopefully this Global Grub will make its way home at some point during Australia Day. Maybe at one of the Australia Day Munzee Events in Victoria or Perth? We’ll just have to wait and see!

You’ll be able to capture the Global Grub specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all Global Grub specials will leave the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique Global Grub specials will launch throughout the year so always be aware— you don’t want to go hungry!

Show us how you Munzee! Tag @munzeeapp on Instagram, or connect with us on Facebook or Twitter. Enjoy Australia Day with some Vegemite, and Munzee on!

Global Grub Special Dropping This Afternoon!

This Munzee Monday is equipped with a very special announcement. While some of our American players are enjoying the three-day weekend, we are excited to announce that our first of nearly two dozen Global Grub specials for the year will be launching this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. So strap on your walking shoes, because it’s time to explore our latest feature!

The Global Grub specials are very rare munzees that will bounce around the world for the remainder of the year. That means you’ll be spending the next eleven months capturing pins featuring different country flags in order to earn badges sporting a unique dish of food for each country. That’s right, your culinary palette is about to expand!

Our first Global Grub special to launch is a physical munzee, featuring the flag for Switzerland. Only one will be deployed, and it will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Players will earn a badge for each different Global Grub they capture starting with the La Fondue badge for capturing the Switzerland pin! Down the line, we’ll also be putting out an overall capture line, so stay tuned for more.

Each Global Grub Munzee will go live at 15:00 MHQ on their assigned day. We’re not announcing when each launch will be, but we expect to release a couple specials each month.

All Global Grub specials will leave the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ. Until then, you’ll be able to capture the Global Grub specials on other players’ Greenies as well as your own. Although there is only one Switzerland Global Grub Special, future releases may include more. You’ll just have to wait and see! Some of these specials will be physical, while others will be virtual. Keep in mind that virtuals will not be blastable.

If this latest update has gotten you excited, you’re in luck. We will be launching our second Global Grub special later this week, so stay tuned!

Don’t forget, we want to see you playing! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and tag us on Facebook or Instagram. Good luck, and Munzee on!
