Limited Time Sale! Shop Mitmegu and More!

It’s time to act fast, because the Mitmegu Pouch Creatures will not be sticking around the Freeze Tag Online Store for long! Our limited time Mitmegu collection sale starts today at 10:00 MHQ time, and you won’t want to miss the following offers!

Mitmegu

Only a limited number of Mitmegu will be available for public sale. Each Mitmegu will cost $15, but you can upgrade it with a Bouncer Upgrade credit for an extra $5. The Bouncer Upgrade credit will equip your Mitmegu with the ability to be “nudged” to a new Munzee. This nudge feature can be used up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day) after it has sat for a minimum of three hours so that other players have the opportunity to find it.

Joining Mitmegu for sale are our other Pouch Creatures, Tuli, Vesi, and Muru. The Bouncer Upgrade credit will upgrade all Pouch Creatures and all Myths, so be sure to pick one up in the shop! If you haven’t deployed a Pouch Creature yet, now is your chance! The Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Pouch Creature. While the name will still retain the unique number, you have the chance to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. (Just remember our player code of conduct!)

Additionally, the Water, Earth, and Fire Elemental Munzees will also be on sale this weekend in strips of 5 for $8, which is 20% off the original price! We also have Shamrock Munzees available in strips of 5 for $8. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner so stock up now!

Lastly, we are all stocked up with new Pouch Creature Personal Munzee metal tags for $10. The tag designs feature each transformation of a Pouch Creature, including Mitmegu! Pick up your own Personal tag today, featuring your favorite Pouch Creature! Remember that each individual design is limited to ONE per account.

Who’s your favorite Pouch Creature? Let us know by connecting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Happy Shopping, and Munzee On!

Global Grub Special Drops for Chinese New Year!

Nǐ hǎo! To celebrate the official start of Chinese New Year, we dropped our latest Global Grub special. Joining Switzerland and Australia, our newest Global Grub special will be a physical flag of China being deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ!

Only two China Global Grub Munzees will be deployed at the moment. Both will be physical! This Chinese flag munzee will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. You CAN capture it on your own munzees.

Points:

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

The Global Grub specials will be very rare and will bounce around the world for the rest of the year. Players will capture flag pins featuring different country maps and then earn badges featuring a unique dish of food from that country. It might be Year of the Pig, but our China Global Grub badge will feature a tasty dish of spiced tofu!

The following badge will be earned for capturing this munzee:

Players will earn a badge for each different type of Global Grub they capture, and we’ll also put out an overall capture line down the line. Keep in mind that some Global Grub will be physical, and some will be virtual. As a reminder, all Global Grub specials will leave the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ.

You better leave some room for seconds, because more unique Global Grub specials will launch throughout the year! Have you capped one yet? Share your progress with us on InstagramFacebook, or Twitter. Good luck, and 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!

Munzee Player of the Week: Adam Moritz (ActMoritz)

Munzee encourages our players to get outside and explore to find Munzees. The combination of technology and exercise is perfect for anyone, but we especially love to see families join together and Munz. Whether your children play a lot or a little, or your wife encourages your Munzee fandom, the family that Munzees together stays together. Family man and Early Bird Adam Moritz (ActMoritz) may not live in the most populated Munzee area, but he works hard to get his family moving and in turn grow the map. This week’s Player of the Week is a shining example of Munzee and we’re proud to have his family as part of our community!

908718_10151879790758228_421229760_nWho are you?
ActMoritz but, most people call me Stud Muffin!!! Others people call me Adam Moritz

Where in the world do you live?   
Just past BFE on the corner of Nowheresville right next to Carman Santiago and Waldo. In the Booming town of Longview, MO with a population of 4 Munzees, 3 of witch are mine.

How long have you played Munzee?
Since the beginning of time!! All 3 years got the badge to prove it! Early bird baby…

How did you find Munzee? 
At an event “TNT” introduced me way back when the app SUCKED (:-P Rob). I capped like 5 at the event and didn’t play again till the same event a year later then I got hooked!! The app was 100X more gooder!

10417431_10152422908090067_35098602747640080_n

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
That they are everywhere and that it’s super easy to play. But, mostly the COMPETITION of competing with friends mostly made through Munzee. This is kids odd as I HATE sports and I am not usually competitive. My Wife finds it funny how obsessed I get if someone passes me or I get close to someone. Making friends that I am closer to than most of my family.

1900047_10152152583020067_1258173558_nWhat is on your wish list?
Number one on my list would have to be leveling up after 100!! Ability to change your username at least once. (That ones for my wife 😉 Rob)

Tell us about yourself!
I am pretty awesome, or so they tell me, and I love long walks on the beach. I love traveling as one could probably tell by looking at my Munzee account.  I am a steel building detailer and own a small sign shop on the side. I have two boys that are nothing but trouble (they might get that from their momma;-))  several of you guys have probably met them. The oldest loves Munzee the youngest not so much he would rather go hiking and hunt for one of those treasure box GPS game things. Been married to the most smoking hot, beautiful, amazing, and successful woman in the world for 12 years. She Munzees (that’s pretty hot itself) a little. But, I think just to make me happy and pretty sure she really only likes the VM’s and MVM’s.

Other hobbies include?
I may maybe a little obsessed with my hobbies! 😉 Saltwater and Reef aquariums!! Reptiles snakes and lizards, Scuba, Custom show trucks, Hunting, fishing and I little thing called Munzee.hobbies

 ActMoritz was kind enough to share his social, so cap away!

If you know a player that should be nominated for Munzee Player of the Week, shoot us a message at iLoveYou@Munzee.com and let us know just why this person is outstanding in the global Munzee community!

-Please note, this is a super active campaign. We may not be able to get back to everyone, but you’re helping to grow the list of amazing people in the Munzee community!

Welcome to the family!

We would like to welcome a new Munzee type to the growing family!

The Munzee Stash!

The Munzee stash is a colorful cube to be deployed with a choice of 6 vibrant colors.  The color you choose will have a unique distinction on the map, a special capture icon, and be 1/6 of earning a special badge.  Here’s a screen shot of each color deployed around MHQ:

map

The stash comes pre-loaded with 25 generic stickers to trade with players who find the stash. Another unique feature is the ability for the first five who find the stash to deploy their own sticker (included) on one side of the cube. The points will accumulate similar to the Munzee motel. Take a sticker, leave a sticker! It’s a great motto for the new stash!

Due to limited stock and shipping costs these items will be sold at Munzee events and through authorized Munzee resellers for the month of April on a trial basis.  Additional quantities will be added to the store soon when all shipping requirements are met.  Be sure to place your order today!

And last, but not least, THE BADGE!  When you deploy a Munzee Stash in each of the six colors available (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet) you will earn The Irish Badge.  This is the perfect badge to add to your collection.

RainbowBadgeWe can’t wait to see the map light up with the colors of the rainbow and know you will welcome The Munzee Stash to the family!

Happy Australia Day, ‘mate!

download (16)

Happy Australia Day to all our Aussie friends!

For those who don’t know, January 26th is Australia Day, a national celebration amongst our friends down under!  This celebration is similar to national, patriotic holidays for other countries.  Australia takes it one step further with celebrations that reflect the diverse society and landscape of the nation, marked by community and family events, reflections on Australian history, official community awards, and citizenship ceremonies welcoming new immigrants into the Australian community.  They even have an “Australian of the Year” award (click here to learn more).

Team Munzee wants to celebrate all the special Aussie players in the Munzee community!  On January 24th, at 10am MHQ time, we’ll be launching special icons worldwide in honor of our Australian players.  These might be a familiar sight for most Australians, but we want to share the kangaroo around the world:

kangaroo (1)

Here’s the details:

  1. Icon launch at 10am MHQ time (will take up to 2 hours for all icons to show on map).
  2. Icons disappear from the map January 27th (10am MHQ time).
  3. While normal ‘Roos like to bounce around, these little guys are Static! Once they are captured, they will not bounce someplace else.
  4. Only One capture per ICON. AND THEN IT IS GONE FOREVER. First to capture wins the icon.
  5. Points earned:  25 for capture and 10 for the Munzee owner.
  6. Only appear on the greenies!
  7. May be captured if they show up on Munzees you have already capped.
  8. No special map. However, “specials only” filters are available in app and online for premium members.

This is a quick little shout-out to our friends down under, so no special badge for capture, just a special icon for your list.  We hope you all enjoy Aussie Day, and have fun cappin’ all the Kangaroos!
