Garden Flamingos are Ready to Mingle!

Last year’s Garden Gnomes were perfect for adding a charming, fairytale-inspired touch to your home. But perhaps your tastes lean more towards the eclectic and tropical? If so, we think you’ll be excited for this year’s Monthly tPOB!

Garden Flamingo Details

The Garden Flamingo is a temporary POB that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store for $12, and each month its price will decrease by $1. You can purchase 1 Garden Flamingo every 28 days. If you own at least 8 temporary Garden Flamingos at the end of the year, you’ll be able to keep a permanent one going into 2023! Plus you can continue using all the skins you’ve collected each month!

This year, we’re doing something different — instead of including the first skin with all January purchases of the base Garden Flamingo, you will have to keep your streak up in January to receive it in February. The pattern continues for the remaining months — if you keep up your capture streak for an entire month, you will receive the skin for it the next month. You can change the skin on the flamingo at any point (more info below!) as long as you have earned it.

Points

  • Garden Flamingo
    • Deploy: 500
    • Capture: 250
    • CapOn: 150
  • New Year Garden Flamingo
    • Capture: 250
    • CapOn: 300

You can find these kitschy cuties wading to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, when a Garden Flamingo has an upgraded skin, up to 3 NEW Flamingo Feathers may be scattered nearby when it is captured! For instance, when a Garden Flamingo has a New Year skin it will scatter Festive Feathers nearby.

The Flamingo Feathers will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Flamingo owner’s account. This means that unlike Air Mystery Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These feather scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Flamingo Feathers are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

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

How to Change Skins

The process is the same as it has been for the past year, so we won’t take up your time with the instructions!

However, if you are a little rusty — or if perhaps, you’re a new player(!) — you can refer to our Help Guide article HERE!

Badges

Garden Flamingos 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 flamingos you deploy, the merrier!
  • Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned flamingo!
  • Overall capture badges — capture as many flamingos as you can find!

You can see the first of each badge line below:

If you complete the capture streaks for each month (and make 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 flock of these fancy Garden Flamingos!

We hope these flamingos are the perfect finishing touch to your outdoor decor!

Munzee on!

We’re Flamingo-ing Crazy in 2022!

Can you believe there’s only a few weeks left in the year? While many of us are still living the sequel of 2020, surviving that tough year has allowed us to identify what worked and what didn’t work, and make changes for a better 2021. We also allowed for a bit of experimentation — namely, the Garden Gnomes!

At around this time last year, we announced our plans for Garden Gnomes, so that those interested would be prepared once we were back in the office and making them available. Looking back on the year, we believe Garden Gnomes were a success and beloved by the community, so we’ve decided to continue releasing a similar style of game piece in 2022!

We’re not releasing all of the details just yet, but we did want to give everyone a heads up to start your capture streaks on January 1st! 

Garden Flamingos

Garden Flamingos will go on sale January 1st at 00:01 MHQ! As usual you’ll want to capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month to earn a reward. If you can make it through the whole month you’ll be awarded a badge and special Flamingo skin themed to that month’s activity! We’ll release more information on Flamingos and any differences from Garden Gnomes once we’re back in the office, but for now, here’s a sneak peek into what we have planned!

Please give a warm welcome to January’s New Year Garden Flamingo!

This year, instead of a sports theme, we wanted to really lean into holidays and celebrations that typically occur each month. The past two years, there have been birthdays, graduations, weddings, and much more to celebrate, but many were scaled down from their original plans. We wanted to make 2022 a more lively year and also continue our lawn décor line, so flamingos were a no-brainer!

We’re all in this together, and if nothing else, it will help you get one step closer to the year-long capture and deploy streak badges. We’ll have a different flamingo badge design each month, but try and keep up with your streak throughout the year! We believe in you!

We hope you’re excited to meet each month’s flamingo and perhaps take home one of your own! Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees plan ahead!
