Meet Munzee Munzday: Tamara

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. To bring back this fun way to introduce team members, here is one of the key members of the Freeze Tag office!

Sleepover with Louise at the National Video Game Museum!

Name and Title:

Tamara Sahagun, Production Specialist (I think my old, self-made title of “Analytics Acolyte” is more accurate, but it IS less official-sounding) (Raan)

Where are you from?

I was born in Manila, Philippines, but grew up in Guam and CA!

Tell us about yourself:

I have the reputation of being “the quiet one” in the office— it takes a while for me to open up to people! Once I do though, my crazy side comes out in snatches. Case in point: last year after bash, the team got me to sing in a mermaid costume at a karaoke bar! I sang “Counting Stars” by OneRepublic. Other than singing, I’ve played games all my life— mostly Playstation games like Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter, Sly Cooper, Metal Gear, Prince of Persia, Final Fantasy X, Dance Dance Revolution, etc. but I have also played such gems as the Ace Attorney series and League of Legends, the latter of which I wrote my honors thesis on in university. Speaking of which, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from UCI with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Game Science.

A cow I painted for the Lucerne Art of Dairy contest!

How long have your worked for Munzee?

I’ve worked for Freeze Tag for 4 years and Munzee for 1.75 years. I had to count the months on my fingers to be exact— It hasn’t felt very long at all!

How did you find Munzee?

I went to a super-cute Easter tea party-themed event with Craig and Mari, but was not able to get the app working on my iPhone 4S (yes, I know it’s an ancient phone— I have upgraded since then!). So I just followed Mari around while she was capping physicals. Then, the app magically worked a few weeks later! Mari took me around our office one day to teach me the common spots where munzees are hidden and that was that!

Attacked by a zombie at E3 2018!

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

Definitely the events! I always have fun planning what to wear with Mari, looking at who else decided to dress up (not just staff, players too! I love seeing creative outfits), meeting up with the rest of the team if it is a larger event (I love seeing everyone in person!), and talking to the players, even if I’m shy and awkward. I’m slowly getting to know some of you! You’ll see! I can be fun! I also like that I get to travel to new places, even if it’s local. As a homebody, I can think of a million ways to occupy myself at home, but I’m too lazy to plan trips myself.

What are some of your other hobbies?

Getting books signed by one of my favorite authors, Stephanie Garber

Other than karaoke, video games, and Munzee, I recently got back into reading and have been logging everything on my new Goodreads account. I’m challenging myself to read 1 book a week. I was ahead earlier in the year, but now that I’ve been getting busy my lead has vanished. While I’m not very good at dancing, I like challenging myself to learn K-Pop dance routines, especially since I’ve been told I look like Twice’s Nayeon. Oh and also escape rooms! I’ve only done 4 so far, but they’re always a good time. The horror-themed ones are the best!

Famous last words?

Couldn’t think of one, so here’s a piece of advice I saw on the internet that I take to heart: “Every time you get dressed remember that, if you die, that’s your ghost outfit forever.”

Check back next week to get to know another member of the team!

2018 Christmas Events Update!

Ho Ho Ho, it’s nearly December!!!

Are you ready for the Munzee Christmas Events?

It’s going to be a busy month, just take a look at the calendar. If there isn’t an event near you it’s not too late to host one yourself, just submit an event here: https://calendar.munzee.com/submit.

Don’t forget to dig out those Christmassy outfits, the best one at an event will get this badge and feature on the Munzee Blog (all nominating hosts will get the badge too, please just email me with a picture and the username of your winner):

There is a Christmas Gift up for grabs at events that have taken the $20 add on. It will be coded to the event badge or munzee /1 in the event account if no badge. On capping this munzee the attendee will receive a prize wheel credit and it will scatter an A. Partridge icon virtual munzee up to 500ft away (only to be seen by that player):

If the player then caps their A. Partridge icon they will also receive a virtual with a colour credit, plus 100 points! This icon will expire in 2 hours and you must have both event filters turned on in the app to see them.


These rewards allow you to choose where to grow the map! Maybe you’ll choose to build a local garden with other attendees?

So, have a great time, enjoy catching up with your Munzee friends and playing our wonderful game. Happy Holidays and Season’s Greetings to you all. Thank you for your support as always.

Halloween Event Kickoff, Virtual Sale and Community Challenge!

Ghosts and ghouls, something wicked this way comes! Bewitching Lou is flying across the night sky because Halloween Munzee Events officially kick off today! This has been our biggest month ever for Munzee events, so we’re excited to see a big turnout this weekend.

With Halloween Events in overdrive, we want to give you all another opportunity to earn double points on all Flat Friends during MH-BOO Bash Weekend! There are 61 events this weekend alone, so here is your challenge:

The worldwide community will need to capture 500 event indicator pins and 5,000 event pins by 23:59 MHQ on 10/14. We understand that not everyone can make it to events, so we’ll also have a secondary goal for deploying virtual munzees of any type as well. If 2,500 virtuals of any type are deployed throughout the weekend, that can replace one of the other requirements.

Be sure to check the Munzee calendar to find an event near you. Deploy virts at events as well to better your chances, support other players, and gain ! We have a handful of virtual items on sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

  • Amethyst: $3 (originally $4)- BUY HERE
  • Emerald: $8 (originally $10)- BUY HERE
  • MVM: $3.75 (originally $4.50)- BUY HERE
  • Surprise: $3.75 (originally $4.50)- BUY HERE

Just a reminder that the point increase for Event Munzees is now effective as well!

  • Event pins are now worth 10 points each
  • Event Indicator Pins are now worth 100 points each
  • Event Badges are now worth 500 points
  • CoExist Munzees are now worth 200 points

We hope you all have a howling good time for the rest of the month and we can’t wait to see some of you at MH-BOO Bash! We might even have some fun tricks, or treats, up our sleeves for the worldwide community too…

Happy hauntings and Munzee on!

 

 

One final reminder for hosts from last month’s blog: All events moving forward will receive 50 event pins and proximity between event pins will be 100 feet. Effective date was October 12.

PSA: Events in October

Howdy Munzee community around the world!

October was already going to be a busy month for events with all of the Halloween events on the calendar! However over the past 4 days many of you have shown your commitment to reaching Level 5 in the Clan Wars in a new way, by hosting events. Due to the overwhelming number, over 130 as of the time of this blog post, I felt it was necessary to give all players a few expectations for events.

Event hosts are important to us at MHQ. You’ve always been a generally smaller audience interacting directly with Louise, our Worldwide Events Manager, and have come to understand our systems. With this new rush of hosts and events we would like to welcome you, and share a few words of wisdom and some expectations.

The first is easy, understand you are not the only host Louise is dealing with. Respect her time and your own by FULLY reading her event creation email because it includes ALL of the information you need to be a successful host.

Second, be prepared in advance. Louise is great and she works at all hours of the day and night, but she may not be able to handle your “emergency” in a timely fashion if you haven’t prepared yourself. Again, most questions she has are covered by the email she sends you with your account details, please read it fully. You can also seek the advice of others who have hosted in the past or work together with others to share the load.

Third, Location Location Location! Events need to be in their own location. You cannot have 2 events in the same place around the same time, otherwise it is considered one event. Have the 2nd event at a later time in another location.

Finally, YOU ARE AN EXTENSION OF MHQ* to any players who attend your events. You could be the first person to introduce someone to this great game! Please understand that event hosts are held to a higher set of rules:

  • Many events have proximity rules lifted so they can deploy physical munzees in crowded areas. This does not give you the right to break the rules and teach others to do the same.
  • All deployments should physically be in the location where the pin is on the map, just like the regular game.
  • No event should have multiple munzees to scan at a single location.
  • No event should be conducted with a sheet of paper with munzees on it to scan as you walk/ride/drive from one location to the next.

The rules of the game are in place for a reason. Event hosts are held to a higher standard and need to set an example for all players. This is an important point for us because you are representing the game of Munzee to a wider audience. YOU are growing the game. We appreciate that very much and ask that you do so respectfully.

Thank you for reading these rules and requests, violations are being dealt with in accordance with the player code of conduct.

Let’s all have a great time in October and maybe we’ll see you at some of the events!

Munzee On!

Rob, President of Freeze Tag Games

*you are figuratively an extension of MHQ. not literally. 😉

We’re also excited to announce that once Halloween events kick off we will increase the points on munzees you can only find at Events! Effective 00:01 October 12 Event Pins will be worth 10 points each and Event Indicator Pins will be worth 100 points each. Your Event Badge will be worth 500 points and a CoExist Munzee will be 200 points. These points will be effective moving forward for all events permanently after October 12.*
