Introducing Mitmegu Pouch Creature!

Joining the ranks of Tuli, Vesi, Muru, and Hadavale, we’re happy to announce the release of our latest Pouch Creature, Mitmegu!

Also known as the ever-changing Pouch Creature, there will be a limited number of Mitmegu Pouch Creatures on sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting at 10:00 MHQ on Wednesday, February 6. Be sure to shop fast, because Mitmegu will not be in the store for long! Mitmegu will cost $15, but it can also be upgraded using a Bouncer Upgrade credit (formerly the Myth Upgrade) which costs an additional $5.

When the Bouncer Upgrade credit is used, your Mitmegu will then have the ability to be “nudged” to a new Munzee. You can use the nudge feature up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day), but only after it has sat for at least 3 hours. This gives players the opportunity to find it before you send it on its way!

The Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Mitmegu! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct, and be mindful of maintaining a family friendly environment!

Mitmegu

While Mitmegu will be the fourth player-owned Pouch Creature, it will work a bit differently than Tuli, Vesi and Muru. Mitmegu will change forms depending on what it lands on and capture streaks will not impact the changing critter’s evolution.

 

Mitmegu will land on the following Munzee types:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrock Munzees
  • Scatter Munzees
  • Premium Munzees
  • RPS Munzees

There is a rare opportunity that the Mitmegu will land on an Elemental Mystery and change forms!

  • If Mitmegu lands on a Water Mystery Munzee it turns into Jootmegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on an Earth Mystery Munzee it turns into Rohimegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on a Fire Mystery Munzee it turns into Lokemegu

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.

Mitmegu Points

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture/CapOn: See Below

Mitmegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Mitmegu

Jootmegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 400 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Jootmegu

Rohimegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 400 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Rohimegu

Lokemegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 400 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Lokemegu

You can find Mitmegu by turning on your Only Expiring Specials and Only Pouch Creatures filters. This new Pouch Creature WILL be attracted to physical magnets, but only as Mitmegu on Greenies. Don’t forget to pick up a magnet at the Freeze Tag Online Store and magnetize a greenie of your choosing to attract up to 3 Specials, Myths, or Pouch Creatures for up to an hour!

For deploying a Mitmegu Pouch Creature Munzee, you will earn the following deploy badge:

There will also be three badges to earn per variant, amounting to a total of thirteen badges including the deploy badge.

Here are the first for each variant:

Based on items from our sister app WallaBee, Pouch Creatures are part of a new era of munzees. Have you capped a Pouch Creature yet? Let us know by connecting on Facebook, Twitter, or InstagramHappy Hunting, and Munzee On!

February Resolution Badge Details!

How has 2019 been treating you so far? As we announced last month in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of self-improvement. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. And since this month is the shortest, you have no excuse not to try!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. While our January resolution focused on eating healthy, we decided to do something special for the month of love. Love comes in more than just romantic forms, so we made our February resolution to make new friends.

February resolutions badge

Why meet new people?

Though socializing comes natural to some lucky humans, many struggle to build new friendships. While it’s tempting to retreat into yourself, there are actually proven health benefits that friendship can provide.

In fact, having friends may even extend your lifespan. People who forge strong social relationships are less likely to die prematurely compared to their isolated counterparts. Friends help each other get healthier, as well as improve mental sharpness. And, of course, we need friends to lean on in tough times, bounce ideas off, challenge our beliefs, and widen our perspectives. Overall, having a trusted network of friends makes us healthier, more balanced, and more centered beings.

One of our favorite parts about Munzee is all the new people we meet along the way. Whether we’re traveling across states or nations, or simply checking our social media and e-mails, we love hearing about and seeing how Munzee has brought people together. It’s not always easy to branch out, but sharing a common interest really helps with meeting new people. And while nothing can replace physical friends, it’s pretty awesome to have virtual ones as well!

So go out, make some friends, and maybe even introduce them to Munzee! Good luck and 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!

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!

Introducing the White Ghost Pouch Creature Munzee!

If you’re in need of a sizable boost in points, we have just the munzee for you. Don’t be scared, Hadavale is here to help!

We’ll be launching our newest Pouch Creature, the white ghost Hadavale, at 15:00 MHQ on January 30th. Hadavale is a Team Owned Bouncer (TOB) so it will be deployed on staff accounts, similar to AlternaMyths such as the Fairy Godmother. It will be available (visible) to ALL players on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th of each month. Hadavale will be available (visible) ALL days of the month for Premium members only. Not a premium member yet? You can purchase a Premium Membership in the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE.

Hadavale:

Hadavale will appear in both physical and virtual forms since it will bounce to both physical and virtual munzees every 6 hours or when captured. Since Hadavale is deployed by staff members, this munzee will be extremely rare. You can help locate this ghoul by choosing the “expiring specials” and “pouch creatures” filters.

Physical Landing Pads

Virtual Landing Pads

As Munzee followers know, Pouch Creatures are based on items from our sister app WallaBee. While similar to the Mythological Munzees, our Pouch Creatures have special attributes that are entirely their own. And this White Ghost is especially advantageous.

When Hadavale is captured, players will become “Positively Charged” for the next two hours. Positively Charged players receive double points on all physical Deploys for the next 120 minutes. This is for ALL types of physical munzees, so Hadavale is quite the munzee to capture.

Positive Charges will stack on multi-point days. For example if you capture a Hadavale on a 3x point day, you would get 6x the normal points when you deploy. Since it has so much to offer, Hadavale will NOT be attracted to Munzee Magnets.

Points 

Capture: 50
Deploy: 50
CapOn: 50
CapOn Host: 50

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on unique captures. Here is the first in the line.

To celebrate the newest Pouch Creature we will be adding more of Tuli, Vesi, and Muru to the online store, as well as Fancy Flat Robs and a handful of Mythological Munzees! They’ll be for sale at 12:15 MHQ tomorrow (1/31) but they won’t be around forever, so if you haven’t had a chance to deploy one, now is your chance! These munzees will all be added to the Player Owned Bouncer (POB) Collection tomorrow. You can find that collection HERE!

Pouch Creatures are part of a new era of munzees. Make sure to capture these rare munzees before they bounce away! And be sure to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to let us know when you find Hadavale. Good luck, and Munzee on!

Additional January Players of the Month Winners!

Congratulations for officially surviving the first month of 2019! We had so much fun awarding our previous Players of the Month with custom badges that we decided to spread the love to include a wider variety of some of Munzee’s very talented Virtual Garden builders. As a reminder, Player(s) of the Month will be based on different criteria each month. To cap off a successful January, we’ve extended this month’s award to an additional 35 players from all around the globe based on their world-renowned Virtual Garden building skills!

To thank these builders for all of the work they do in the Munzee community, we will be awarding them special POTM badges! 

You can find a complete list of all of our players of the month for January at the end of this post! Congrats to all of our January POTM winners! Munzee wouldn’t be the same without all of the hard work, time, and effort you (and all of our dedicated players!) put into transforming the maps. And another thank you goes out to all of the players who nominated these talented builders.

Some months we will ask for nominations to help us choose recipients based on that month’s criteria, but we will not be accepting nominations in February. The Player Of The Month requirements for February are based on Super Streaks! That means if you have captured and/or deployed every day for more than a year, you will be rewarded. We have to recognize the players who never take a day off! Thank you for helping us grow the map, and stay tuned for your future recognition!

As a final reminder, anyone who earned the Player Of The Week badge previously IS able to earn the Player Of The Month badge as well! Good luck, and Munzee On!

Joining our previous January Players of the Month in the winning section are:

Once again, congratulations to all! Keep up the amazing work!

Begin your Adventure with Trail Munzee Badges!

One of the best parts about Munzee is the opportunity to explore new places, so we decided to drop nine new badges for activity on Trail Munzees. These badges will drop today (1/29) at 10:00 MHQ. That means if you’re reading this, you have the opportunity to earn them!

As many of you know, the Trail Munzees are deployed in a path that leads other players to a place worth seeing. These munzees can form a tour to one of your favorite local hangs, or lead others to a site that makes your town unique. As long as they get you out of the house and exploring, the Trail Munzees are doing their job!

Overall there with be nine new Trail Munzee badges being released today. These badges will be retroactive. There will be 3 badges for capturing Trail Munzees, 3 badges for deploying Trail Munzees, and 3 badges for completing entire Trails.

All Trail Munzee types will count towards these badges:

  • Trail Munzees
  • Virtual Trail Munzees
  • Event Trail Munzees

We won’t spoil the requirements for all of the badges, but here’s a sneak peak of the first in each line!

Gatherer- Capture 10 Trail Munzees of any type. 

Wayfinder- Deploy 5 Trail Munzees of any type. 

Daytripper- Capture every stop on a single Trail of any type.

Help create new opportunities in your neighborhood by deploying Trail Munzees! Stop by the Freeze Tag Online Store and purchase physical credits, which you can use to convert regular greenies into Trail stops. Or you can purchase Virtual credits individually; you will receive a Virtual Trail credit and a Virtual Munzee with each purchase.

The physical Trail tags (either metal or plastic tree tags) are hardcoded with Trail munzees, so you don’t need basic greenies. Click here to see the entire Trail Munzee collection.

Don’t forget to let us know when you earn new badges! Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to let us know how you’re doing. 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!
