Introducing Our TWO Latest Places Munzees!

Oh the places you’ll go, and the places you’ve been… where has Munzee taken you?! Hopefully on plenty of adventures! And there are many more fun Munzee trips in store for you with our latest Places Munzees, Transportation Places and Play Park Places, available in the Freeze Tag Online Store today at 15:00 MHQ time!

You can shop our latest Places Munzees today, in addition to our existing Places Munzees, including Cinema, Unique Attractions, Historical, and many more! Places Munzees are positioned at locations of interest around the world in order to offer players the ability to capture them once per MHQ day. For more details about Places Munzees, check out the help manual.

Transportation Places Munzees can be deployed at mass transit stations around the world. These include train and bus stations, as well as subway or rail line stops. Play Park Places Munzees can be deployed at smaller parks and playgrounds around the world. National Parks, Amusement Parks and school playgrounds will not be accepted. (See disclaimers below.)

Like other Places, our latest additions will NOT be blastable. The Transportation and Play Park Places Munzees will both have a 1,000 foot capture radius around them.

Points

  • Deploy: 40
  • Capture: 20
  • CapOn: 10

Capturing the Transportation or Play Park Places will count towards the Places capture badges and the Places streak badges. We hope our latest Places are an asset to your Munzee adventures! We will continue to add new categories of Places Munzees in the future, as our line continues to expand!

Munzee on!

July Flat Friends and QRewsdays Schedules!

We know that many players like to plan out their Munzee activity, so we decided to release the July Flat Friends and QRewsdays schedules early enough to give you ample time to plan your capping adventures!

July Flat Schedule

July is a special month for Munzee, as this year marks Munzee’s 8th birthday! While there will be eight weeks of birthday event celebrations, there will also be ample opportunity for Flat Friends captures. That’s because all four Flat Friends will be on the map ALL month long to celebrate the birth of everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt!!!

July QRewsday Schedule

If you’re ready to earn some extra points while cleaning up the map, we have just the schedule for you!

Our July QRewsday schedule is as follows:

  • Monday, July 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Tuesday, July 2nd at 23:59 MHQ time
  • Sunday, July 7th at 00:01 MHQ time through Wednesday, July 10th at 23:59 MHQ time
  • Tuesday, July 16th at 00:01 MHQ time through Saturday, July 20th at 23:59 MHQ time
  • Wednesday, July 24th at 00:01 MHQ time through Monday, July 29th at 23:59 MHQ time

Remember that QRew (and ZeeQRew) status can be earned or revoked at 00:01 MHQ time on the 1st and 15th, so plan accordingly if you want to achieve or retain either title!

Munzee on!

Munzee Birthday Events Prepare to Commence!

Munzee is turning 8 next month, which means there are 8 weeks of birthday events to be enjoyed starting Friday! The 8zee’s (80’s) themed events will run from June 14 all the way through August 11 in order to offer plenty of opportunity to celebrate Munzee with your best retro attire!

While custom artwork is no longer available for the early birthday events (players booked it up fast!), we have awesome generic artwork packages available! Generic artwork packages cost $50 for an icon and $50 for a badge. Badges can be customized to include the event name, place and date. These retro designs are a great addition for your event attendees to earn! If your event is late July or August custom artwork is still a possibility.

We encourage players to keep adding events to the calendar, as there are plenty more chances to host over the next 8 weeks! There are 4 available packages for hosts to choose from, along with a unique host badge for each package!

There will also be an Attendee Badge to earn, as well as plenty of extras to scoop up during the celebrations!

Magic 8 Attendee – attend one of the 8zees birthday bash celebrations to earn this badge!

With birthday events kicking off this weekend, we can’t wait to see how players celebrate the 8zee’s! Remember the event host will choose a winner at each event based on best 80s attire. In order to earn the special badge for winning this costume contest, the event host must send the player name and photo taken at the event of the winning look to Louise. Unfortunately we will not be able to award any Best Dressed badges without those two pieces of information, so be sure to get them in!

Best Dressed 8zees badge- start planning your 80s outfits now for the chance to win!

Although Best Dressed winners will be chosen by event hosts, we want to see ALL OF YOU in your retro 80s attire! So share images to social media of your coolest throwback threads and be sure to use #8zees and tag us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter!

Two more great bits of news for event hosts! In the next few days you will notice new tools available for you to control your events more through the calendar admin section. You will be able to slightly tweak the coordinates for your pink pin, set cohosts, AND control your go live time. All of this is to allow event hosts the ability to adjust final details as needed. You will also be able to archive your event when it is over.

Also we are preparing to move your event communications to a new email address. Louise will be moving over the next few days to work from events@munzee.com — Current hosts will hear from her with details on events and future hosts will begin their communications at the new address. Thanks for your patience while we move her systems!

Munzee on!

Remember that the Official Birthday Bash will be held with the California team this year in Tustin, CA! There’s still plenty of time to RSVP and join the California Team, Matt, Dylan, and Emma in the Golden State!

Join Us in California for Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash!

Munzee is turning 8 this year, and Friday, June 14 will kick off a whole eight weeks of birthday events! As we’ve announced, the Official Birthday Bash will take place in Tustin, CA with the California team this year! You can RSVP now to join Craig, Mick, Mari, and Tamara, as well as Matt, Dylan, and Emma flying in from MHQ, for an unforgettable 8th birthday bash on July 20!

Official Birthday Bash

All team members attending Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash on July 20th will be equipped with new badges for your scanning pleasure!

Players in attendance can earn exclusive Traveling Team Badges when they meet FT team members at events! Players at GeoWoodstock earned Texas license plates, but attendees at the CA Birthday Event can earn these retro Cali license plates. That’s the power of love!

We’re also happy to announce some awesome Virtual Gardens that all players can deploy in to get in on the birthday celebration fun even if they can’t make it out to the Golden State! Feel free to deploy in the Keytar and Magic 8 Ball gardens while there are still available spaces! Follow the links to the spreadsheets to help us grow these groovy gardens and if you need some help check out our “How to deploy in a Virtual Garden” help guide article!

There’s nothing like the joy of CapOn points to get you in the birthday spirit! While we have yet to release a pink event pin, these gardens are both deployed near the event location. Stay tuned for the pink pin, which will be deployed sometime in the next week.

We will also be releasing more information about the birthday bash in the near future! For now, you can get started on earning CapOn points or picking out your best 80s attire (maybe dusting off some old boxes) if you plan to attend the event in person!

Don’t forget even if you can’t make it to California for our get together, there may be a Munzee event near you! Check out the Munzee Event Calendar and RSVP today!

Munzee with Matt!

If you’re unable to make it out to California, but still want to celebrate Munzee, luckily there are plenty of events to fuel your summer! (Or winter!) There will also be a number of opportunities to hang out with Matt, who will be attending the following Munzee events in July. He’ll also have exclusive Traveling Team Badges for each of his trips, so be sure to say hi!

Munzee’s Next Update is Ready to Download!

Today we’re happy to announce our latest app update, a build on version 4.1.18, that is meant to improve several aspects of gameplay! In order to reap the benefits of our latest update, you will need to go to your app store and download the latest version of the Munzee app. Please keep in mind that it may take a little bit of time for the latest app version to arrive in your store, so be patient in the meantime!

Many will likely find the most exciting part of the app update to be the improvements to the test scan tool. The test scan tool has been updated as follows:

  • The test scan tool has been updated to show more helpful information. No more confusion about which stickers are what!
    • Each scan now shows the pin image and munzee type name
    • Munzee state is now displayed as: Never Deployed, Undeployed, Deployed by, Archived or Has Been Replaced

Additionally we have went through a number of glitches and common issues and are happy to provide the following fixes:

  • Fix for the “White Screen of Death” issue, which would cause the screen to randomly turn white and require an app restart
  • Fix for scrolling issues on Android, which include the quick deploy list, history list, captured/deployed, etc. lists and the munzee details screen
  • Fix to show owned magnetized munzees on the map again, even if the owned filter is disabled
  • Fix to show correct pin images for rovers that sit on virtual munzees that are owned or have been captured

Lastly, we have made the following two updates to facilitate easier gameplay:

  • Restored landscape mode for iPads
  • Red radius circles remain visible when zooming out far in deploy mode

We hope these updates make your gameplay experience better than ever! Remember that in order to reap the benefits of our latest update, you will need to download the latest version of the app from your app store. Also keep in mind that you can check up on Known Issues and the Version 4.x Update Log on the Help Guide at anytime.

Stay tuned for more updates and announcements! There are many exciting projects on the horizon that we can’t wait to share!

Munzee on!

Coupe du Munzee Specials Cross onto the Map!

Tomorrow marks the start of the Women’s World Cup in France, a monumental competition featuring many of the top female athletes in the world. This massive sporting event means something in the world of Munzee as well, as our Coupe du Munzee Specials will begin bouncing around on June 7 at 00:01 MHQ time all the way until July 7 at 23:59 MHQ time to cheer these female athletes on, the Munzee way!

Earn this badge by capturing at least one Coupe du Munzee special!

Fierce Females

The Coupe du Munzee specials will hit the map in support of the Women’s World Cup, a competition that allows female football stars to demonstrate their immense athletic talent in a showcasing of some of the most skilled athletes in the world. As you cheer on your home country in the World Cup, be sure to take a moment to recognize the dedication these women have put into their training to make it to such a prestigious level of professional competition!

Unfortunately not all sports give female athletes adequate opportunity to compete on professional levels. Alongside our sponsorship of the InternationElles, a female cycling team that includes our own immeasurably talented Louise, Freeze Tag stands in support of all world athletes. We encourage equality in all professional sports, which is why we are thrilled to support the InternationElles as they demonstrate that female cyclists are every ounce as capable as men. You can support Louise and her team by picking up a Flat Lou from the Freeze Tag Online Store from 10:00 MHQ time on June 8 through 10:00 MHQ time on June 11, with a portion of all Flat Lou proceeds during this sale going towards Freeze Tag’s sponsorship of the InternationElles.

Coupe du Munzee

Ready to learn more about the specials that will be hitting the map in a number of hours?! To honor the 24 teams in the Women’s World Cup, we will have 1 physical icon per team and 11 of each team’s icons bouncing on the map every 6 hours or when captured to represent each player on the field. That means that we will be starting out with 264 specials up for grabs, featuring the following icons and many more!

Though the Coupe du Munzee specials will be on the map until July 7 at 23:59, not all team icons will last the duration of the run. While we will start out with 24 icons, one for each of the 24 teams, these numbers will slowly dwindle as teams fail to advance. With each passing the round the number of icons per team may increase as they remain in the competition. The following schedule will let you know how many icons will remain on the map throughout the World Cup:

  • All teams will join the map for the following days:
    • June 7 at 00:01 MHQ time through June 22
    • 24 team icons (11 bouncers per team)
  • Only teams advancing to the Round of 16 will remain on map for the following days:
    • June 22-25 (losing teams will be removed during this time period)
    • 16 team icons
  • Only teams advancing to the Quarterfinals will remain on map for the following days:
    • June 27-29 (losing teams will be removed during this time period)
    • 8 team icons
  • Only teams advancing to the Semifinals will remain on map for the following days:
    • July 2-3 (losing teams will be removed during this time period)
    • 4 team icons
  • Only teams playing for 3rd place will remain on map for the following day:
    • July 6
    • Losing 2 team icons
  • Only teams advancing to the Finals will remain on map for the following day:
    • July 7
    • Winning 2 team icons

The Coupe du Munzee specials can be captured on previously capped and owned munzees. These physical bouncing specials will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets and can be found by turning on the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The point distribution is as follows:

Points

  • Cap: 91 points
  • CapOn: 24 points

Badges & Ensembles

Players will be able to earn a badge for capturing one Coupe du Munzee special as well as a variety of other badges as well!

Teams are competing in groups of six, so our Coupe du Munzee specials are also grouped into six Ensembles of team icons, with four teams per ensemble. You will be able to earn a badge for capturing one of each team in an Ensemble, as well as a badge upon your first capture of any Coupe du Munzee special, for a total of seven new badges to earn with these specials. Remember that since the special icons will be eliminated along with their real world teams, you’ll want to capture these icons while you can to earn the badges!

Ensemble 1

  • France
  • Nigeria
  • Norway
  • South Korea

Ensemble 2

  • China PR
  • Germany
  • South Africa
  • Spain

Ensemble 3

  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • Italy
  • Jamaica

Ensemble 4

  • Argentina
  • Japan
  • England
  • Scotland

Ensemble 5

  • Cameroon
  • Canada
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand

Ensemble 6

  • Chile
  • Sweden
  • Thailand
  • United States

Lastly, there will be special double points days for the Flat Friends and German Coupe du Munzee bonuses on select days. There will be double points on Flat Matts, Flat Robs, and Flat Hammocks when USA plays on June 11, June 16, and June 20. You can also enjoy double points on Flat Lous when England plays on June 9, June 14, and June 19. Lastly, look forward to double points on the German Coupe du Munzee specials when Germany plays on June 8, June 12, and June 17.

You may not be a pro athlete, but you can put your pro Munzee hunting skills to the test with these new specials!

Munzee on!

Prepare to Feast with Sweden Global Grub!

Today we will be bringing you another tasty Global Grub addition in order to celebrate Constitution Day in Sweden! Sweden celebrates its National Day on June 6 in order to honor the day Gustav Vasa was crowned king, way back in 1523, which laid the foundation for Sweden’s independence, while in 1809 a new constitution was adopted for Sweden on the very same date. So it’s time to fill your plates for Sweden, because the Sweden Global Grub will be joining the map today at 15:00 MHQ time!

To mark the date, we will be deploying SIX virtual Sweden Global Grub Munzees. The Sweden Global Grub specials will bounce to regular virtuals and colored virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. This special will join a number of already released Global Grubs, including Mexico, China, and Thailand.

Points

  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Have you captured any Global Grub Munzees yet? Each Global Grub capture will earn you a special badge containing a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country. Capturing a Sweden Global Grub special will award you the following tasty badge:

What better way to celebrate Sweden today than with a delicious raggmunk breakfast!? These potato pancakes are fried in butter for golden crisp perfection and served with a topping of lingonberries and a side of crunchy bacon. If you haven’t tried this delicious Swedish meal yet, then you are surely missing out!

Remember that you will have the rest of the year to capture the Global Grub specials before they leave the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ time. So don’t give up if you are yet to feast! We will also be releasing an overall capture line in the future, so stay tuned for more Global Grub updates. In the meantime, keep your appetites hearty!

Munzee on!

Event Details

While we’re not ready to reveal all of the weekend details just yet, we would like to share what the Medieval Times dinner and show add-on will entail if you purchase A Night With Knights.

Families, please keep in mind that every person joining us this night will need to purchase the A Night With Knights add-on for each person who wishes to attend regardless of whether or not Munzee accounts are joined. Though Medieval Times tickets are more affordable for children if purchased directly from the website, we will not be able to guarantee that anyone will be able to sit with the group unless they order through our packages.

More information regarding complete event schedules will be released soon, but the format will be similar to previous years. There will be activities during registration Friday evening, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon (WallaBash), Saturday evening (public event separate from ANWK), and Sunday morning. There will also be a wide variety of specials and badges to earn at each event, not to mention all of the munzees to capture in the McKinney area! For more information about WallaBash, be sure to check out the WallaBee Blog in the coming days! 

We can’t wait to ride gallantly into the night atop a golden unicorn with you this fall! Okay, it might not be THAT awesome, but MedZEEval Times will still be pretty great!  Stay tuned for more information!

Munzee on!

***Please note that  food orders will only be included for the “A Night With Knights” package add-on, but there will be opportunities to eat during some of the events.***

***To guarantee availability of all items in packages, online registration will close on August 23, 2019 at 15:00 MHQ time. Packages will be available for purchase at the event, but we cannot guarantee all items will be available.***

***Please purchase only one package per person who will be attending. Everyone must have at least the free package. If you have a joint account, please purchase a package for each person (they do not have to be the same package).***
