NEW Evolutions Extend Our Aquatic Wildlife Collection!

We’ve been missing beautiful beach views, the sound of the waves, and glimpses of aquatic wildlife. While we may not be able to do anything in Munzee about the first two, we thought that it’s about time to add some new Evolution Munzees to our roster! Starting June 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, our brand new Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be made available through the June MunzPak Subscriptions!

These NEW Evolution Munzees will be available in their corresponding MunzPak Subscriptions, sold in the Freeze Tag Online Store. However, keep in mind that if any MunzPak orders are placed before June 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, players will be receiving the May MunzPak. Both the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions are a combination of Physicals and Virtuals.


Turtle Evolution Munzees

Stages 1-4 of the Turtle Evos are Physical Munzees, while Stage 5 Turtles will bounce to both physical and virtual landing pads.

The 5 stages of the Turtle Evolution are as follows:

  • Stage 1: Turtle Egg
  • Stage 2: Turtle Hatchling
  • Stage 3: Juvenile Turtle
  • Stage 4: Adult Turtle
  • Stage 5: Turtle (3 Variants)
    • Sea Turtle
    • Snapping Turtle
    • Taekwondo Tortoise- RARE VARIANT!

Jellyfish Evolution Munzees

Stages 1-4 of the Jellyfish Evos are Virtual Munzees, while Stage 5 Jellyfish will bounce to both physical and virtual landing pads.

The 5 stages of the Jellyfish Evolution are as follows:

  • Stage 1: Jellyfish Planula Larva
  • Stage 2: Jellyfish Polyp
  • Stage 3: Jellyfish Bulbed Polyp
  • Stage 4: Jellyfish Ephyra Larva
  • Stage 5: Jellyfish (3 Variants)
    • Box Jellyfish
    • Golden Jellyfish
    • PB & Jellyfish- RARE VARIANT

Evolution Timeline

The stage timeline of the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will match that of the Butterfly Evolution. The stages will be as follows:

  • Stage 1 to Stage 2: after 4 days
  • Stage 2 to Stage 3: after 14 days
  • Stage 3 to Stage 4: after 10 days
  • Stage 4 to Stage 5: permanent until reset to stage one

Once these Evolutions reach Stage 4, a temporary POB will be launched. For example, if you’ve deployed a Turtle Evolution, the Juvenile Turtle will remain in place, while the adult Turtle variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.” Likewise, if you’ve deployed a Jellyfish Evolution, the Jellyfish Bulbed Polyp will remain in place, while the Jellyfish variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.”

Once these Evolutions reach Stage 5, they will stay in place for 8 hours or when captured, and will not be able to be nudged. Once 10 captures or 42 days have elapsed for Stage 5, the Turtle or Jellyfish will be archived.

The first four stages of the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be the same for all players. However, Stage 5 will have the option of emerging as one of the three different species listed above. Like the Flower Evolutions, the chance of the Turtle or Jellyfish Evolution evolving to one of the 3 types changes every time it is reset with the Evolution Reset Credit.

Using an evolution reset credit will set your Evolution back to Stage 1, for a chance for the Turtle or Jellyfish to evolve to a different species at Stage 5. Although you cannot capture a reset evolution if you have already captured the original from stages 1-4, you CAN capture the final level of a reset when it evolves and releases a new tPOB. An easy way to know is, if you see it on the map you can capture it!

Please note that although the first four stages for each are the same, they will count as different special capture icons. Like all Player Owned Bouncers (POBs), the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be available for multi-capture only as the Level 5 Turtle or Level 5 Jellyfish, respectively.


Points and Landing Pads

The points for the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be as same as the Butterfly Evolution, with 100 points awarded per Stage 1 deploy.

  • Stage 1: Cap: 50, CapOn: 30
  • Stage 2: Cap: 40, CapOn: 20
  • Stage 3: Cap: 45, CapOn: 25
  • Stage 4: Cap: 40, CapOn: 30
  • Stage 5: Cap: 150, CapOn: 50, Host CapOn: 50

Just like real life turtles and jellyfish, the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolution Munzees sometimes swim to dangerous areas including predator filled waters, and high-speed roadways! Bouncing Turtle and Jellyfish Evos will be attracted to the following landing pads:

The Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will adhere to normal proximity rules. Stage 1 deploys must be at least 50 feet from any other physical type and 150 feet from your own physical munzees. Stages 1-4 are blastable.

Stage 5 of the Turtle and Jellyfish Evos will be attracted to Munzee Magnets and Virtual Magnets. They are NOT blastable. To access the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolution Munzees, turn on your “Evolution” and “All Expiring Specials” filters. The Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will count toward Evolution Capture and Deploy badges.

The full contents of the June MuzPak Subscriptions will be revealed on Monday. We hope this latest Evolution has you ready to dive into summer (in the northern hemisphere) in the meantime!

Munzee on!

*Green Colored Virtuals include: 

  • VIRTUAL SEA GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GRANNY SMITH APPLE MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL FOREST GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL ASPARAGUS MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL OLIVE GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL YELLOW GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GREEN YELLOW MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL SPRING GREEN MUNZEES

June Flat Friends and QRewzdays Schedules!

Since the future is still uncertain, we’re taking a page from last month’s schedules. The flat schedule will still be easy to remember. We hope you’ll enjoy capping these virtual and physical munzees while continuing to practice careful Social DistanZEEing! Remember to follow your local guidelines and Stay Home if required.

June Flat Schedule

To give players more capping opportunities, Flat Friends will continue to be on the map the entire month! Shown in list format, June 2020’s Flat Friends schedules look like:

Flat Matt

  • Monday, June 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Tuesday, June 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

Flat Rob

  • Monday, June 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Tuesday, June 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

Flat Hammock

  • Monday, June 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Tuesday, June 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

June QRewsday Schedule

In addition to our Flat Friends schedule, you can mark your calendars for June QRewsdays to earn some QRewzee points! We’ve got a nice sprinkling of them throughout the month, so there’s likely a day that works for you!

The June QRewsdays are as follows:

  • During the Clan War break, June 1 at 00:01 MHQ time through June 2 at 23:59 MHQ time
  • All Even numbered days in June beginning at 00:01 MHQ time until 23:59 MHQ time on the same day (June 4,6,8, etc.)

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!

Event Spotlight: Munzee Mania 2019

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the Munzee Mania 2019 event, which took place on May 4, 2019 at Eagan, MN and was hosted by loeschfamily, valsey, GreenHeron, and Wrasln.

Be Careful Not to Walk Into Anything With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

If the nostalgia from the Viewfinders released earlier in the month wasn’t enough to hold your attention, maybe a high-tech version would have more success! The tenth 20/20 Vision Munzee can be considered the child of the Viewfinder, as it fulfills the same function of encapsulating your entire field of vision with an artificial environment, but is still being actively developed today. These blocky blinders were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Have you tried on a pair of these in real life?

Only five pairs of VR Goggles will be deployed, and they will bounce to all colors of virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

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

Capturing the VR Goggles will add this sleek Virtual Vision badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

While it is not recommended to be mobile while wearing VR Goggles, many companies, such as CapToGlove and Cybershoes, have been developing controllers that make up for this limitation. CapToGlove’s aim is to make your hand the controller, with various hand gestures mapped to certain commands. Meanwhile, Cybershoes let you get in a little bit of exercise — while seated, you can move your avatar around by taking “steps.” The bottoms of the Cybershoes are designed to make it easy to slide your feet while seated. Both technologies definitely take some getting used to, but certainly something to try if you’re looking to enhance your VR experience!

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these trendy lenses!

Show us how you Munzee! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and mention us on Facebook (@Munzee) or Instagram (@munzeeapp). Good luck, and Munzee on!

June 2020 Clan Wars Requirements

It’s almost June! You’ll find all the details to our clan requirements and rewards in the clan section of our app. It is possible that we could update clan requirements prior to June 3 and reserve the right to do so. The final requirements and rewards will be in the app, and will be updated here if anything changes before June 3rd. As with the previous months changes could be made based on how situations continue to change worldwide based on COVID-19.

We believe much of the lower levels can still be completed from the comfort of your home, which may be required in your local area. Some clans may have to choose not to go for levels they have achieved in the past. Some players may have to choose to play in new clans, or not at all for upcoming months. We understand the world is in a state of not knowing what the next days, weeks, or months will look like. We will continue to provide opportunities for ALL players to play Munzee their way, while also following our code of conduct.

If Clan Wars won’t work for you this month we hope you will join us for ZeeOps which will be announced on the 31st and begin June 1.

June Badges

Your Clan can earn monthly badges to earn for reaching distinct levels of Clan Wars each month. You won’t be able to earn a badge until the entire clan has reached the specified level. Since there is NO Level X this month, there will be a total of 5 badges available in June. The first badge will appear as follows:

Trojan Unicorn Details

Trojan Unicorns are temporary POBs that bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. For this month, they will be deployed on your account when you claim your Level 3 Clan Wars rewards. The Trojan Unicorns will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on the last day of Clan Wars each month, when they will be archived on your account. Since this is the first month this process could take a bit longer so we thank you in advance for your patience. If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

The points for Trojan Unicorns are as follows:

  • Deploy: 200 points
  • Capture: 200 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

In addition, capping a Trojan Unicorn will cause three temporary virtual Flaming Arrows to scatter nearby. You’ll receive 50 points for each arrow you capture!

You can find these iconic vehicles bouncing to the following landing pads every 3 hours or when captured:

  • All Clan Weapons
    • Mace
    • Longsword
    • Battle Axe
    • Hammer
    • Crossbow
    • Catapult

Trojan Unicorns will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Trojan Unicorn on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Trojan Unicorn visits you. However, Trojan Unicorns will be non-blastable and non-magnetizable. You can access Trojan Unicorns under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Own Clan” filters.

Trojan Horse Badges will be released soon with any additional details prior to the first day clans are eligible to earn them, June 16th.

Overall Clan Notes

Please keep in mind Levels 4 & 5 are considered advanced gameplay and not recommended for brand new players. Be aware when allowing new players to join your clans. MHQ will not remove players mid-month from clans unless it is a disciplinary action.

Bouncer captures include any POB, MOB, or TOB (even the temporary POB)

*Mystery points include all Cap, Deploy, and CapOn for ALL mystery types. (Mystery, Ice, Fire, Water, Earth, Electric, Air) — this does NOT include scatters from these types
**Clan War Card is a new limited edition greeting card. It will follow all the same points and rules as other Limited Edition greeting cards.

Physical points include all Cap, Deploy, and CapOn for ALL Physical types.
Deploy points are for all types excluding Personals.

Total points include Cap, Deploy, and CapOn of all types.
Flat friends points include all Cap, Deploy, and CapOn for flat Rob, flat Matt, flat Lou, and flat Hammock. Fancy Flat Rob and Fancy Flat Matt are NOT included in flat friends points.

Social and Personal will not count for Deploy requirements.
Social will not count for total Capture requirements.
Personal will not count for Physical points of any sort. It is not a true physical munzee.

For complete information regarding Clan Wars, access our Help Guide!

Hints for how to play during Stay Home orders:
Use the swap feature for brand new virtual deploys.
Use the online map to deploy virtuals worldwide or find gardens to deploy in on social media groups.
Watch the online store for sales during the month to help meet your goals.
Use evolution reset credits to get new CapOn points from OLD deploys (they do NOT count as new deploys)

And finally, be responsible. If your local government, your health, or any circumstances require you to Stay Home – DO NOT participate. It is up to each of us to determine what is safe and what is allowed. This is a game and not worth risking your own live or the lives of others.
Munzee on, stay safe and Play Your Way!

Requirements and rewards found in app are the final word. Please report any issues to Munzee support.
Play at your own risk, within the laws of your local area.

May 2020 GOTM Winners + June POTM Requirements!

This month, we took a break from Social DistanZEEing events as we focused our development time on some exciting new things we have planned. However, we made sure that May still had a lot of new things to interact with! We celebrated May Day in the Munzee world by releasing World Laughter Day specials and three new Baby Animals in Munzpaks! New Places Munzees followed the next week, which included the much awaited Beach Places munzee! The week after brought Smaragd (we can kind of pronounce it now, can you?) and Skyland, which has been a popular destination for many players! And just last week, Hometown Heroes specials started appearing on the map in batches, along with new variants for the Cyclops and Nymph! Last but not least, we also released a few new Greeting Card munzees!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the May Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for May Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for June POTM! The badges for May GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early June, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

May GOTM

When choosing May GOTM, we couldn’t resist choosing another flower-themed garden — after all, one of the new Greeting Card munzees is called “May Flowers“! As for the other winner — let’s just say it relates to one of the aforementioned “exciting new things we have planned.” Remember that all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award the Flower at Fort Monostor, designed by Laczy76, and MOA UNICORN, designed by geomatrix, as our winning May GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Flower at Fort Monostor by Laczy76 in Komárom, Hungary

This cute design reminds us of the beloved Eric Carle’s artwork! Simple shapes and bright colors!

Good things come in small packages, and this garden is definitely one of them! A nice compact size to hand-cap if you’re visiting the Fort Monostor museum!

MOA UNICORN by geomatrix in Bloomington, MN

Did you notice all of the Flat Hammocks around the edge of this garden? It’s unicorn-ception!

This is just one of geomatrix’s gardens that highlights the new square pin design we adopted with the release of Munzee 4.0! He’s also made a garden for the Yeti and Mermaid! You can see these designs and others he’s created  at this spreadsheet: LINK

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

May POTM

May’s POTM called for nominations for players you’ve sent a Greeting Card munzee to. We wanted to help spotlight these special pen pals, who are crucial to staying sane during these difficult times! There’s still a little bit of time left to send in nominations, so if there’s anyone who fits this criteria, please fill out the Google Form at https://forms.gle/dqEHrv29yiK2YSnJ6

Congratulations to all the players who were nominated! You can expect to see the badge in early June. If you were not nominated, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for spreading friendship and love across the globe with Greeting Card munzees! We were hoping they would help players feel more connected since Munzee friends are perhaps the most important part of the game!

June POTM Requirements

For June’s POTM, we want to see at least 1 Places Munzee capture for each day in the month. Since the range on these munzees is much larger than most other types, we thought this wouldn’t be too tough to achieve — anyway, they’re probably already part of your routine!

Working towards this requirement will also contribute progress towards Places Streak Badges, so if you haven’t earned those yet, maybe this is the month to do it!

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

 

We hope you’re excited for what June has in store!

Munzee on!

June 2020’s Resolution Can Be Done In Place!

Summer is almost upon us — how did that happen? Time seems to flow extremely slowly in our day-to-day, and yet somehow, whole months have passed! June is a time for graduations, weddings, and many other celebrations, so if a special day of yours is coming up, we hope you have a great one! As we announced in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of being active. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to practicing a different exercise. 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. This month’s badge may be tricky to get, but we believe in you!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. For June, we’ve decided to feature the old standby — jogging! Jogging is a great aerobic exercise because it requires you to maintain a brisk pace for an extended period of time, rather than running as fast as you can in one burst. The idea is that you won’t use up all your energy at once and stop before reaching the recommended amount of active exercise time (at least 30 minutes a day, which can be broken up into chunks as small as 10 minutes).

Jogging is easy enough to do, but so boring! How can I make jogging more fun and keep my motivation up?

Of course, there are the usual ideas — make a fun playlist to listen to as you jog and wear a colorful outfit you feel good in, like the people in the badge art above. Plan a scenic route so you’ll enjoy the view. But if you want to mix it up a bit, why not pretend you’re the lead actor or actress in an action movie or TV show? There’s lots of things to be running away from, like zombies, large boulders, explosions — you name it! There are even apps to help make the experience more immersive, such as Zombies, Run!

Similarly, if you are going to be jogging on a treadmill or in place indoors, you could watch your favorite action movie or TV show at the same time to help with your image training! Rocky training montage, anyone? What are some other great movies or shows to watch while jogging?

Before you attempt any exercise, it’s always a good idea to consult your doctor**. 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 IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY EXERCISE-RELATED INJURIES

A Fresh Batch of Greeting Cards are Heading Your Way!

We keep getting great ideas for new Greeting Card munzees! Last week we teased the “Howdy” and “Safe Travels” cards — are you ready for even more options?

We are happy to announce 6 NEW Greeting Cards are now available for purchase! You can pick up Greeting Cards from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. You receive multiple munzees from your single purchase. Read the details in the store, or see below.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

We have 5 new Open Edition cards and 1 new Limited Edition card for your deploying pleasure!

Just in time for graduations, you can now celebrate someone’s accomplishments with a Congrats Card!

Or take the first step in moving past an argument, extending sympathy, or just sharing a hug with a Sorry Card. Sorry card number 3 is the sign language symbol for I’m sorry.

Lastly, you can send a lovely, allergy-free bouquet to a loved one with a May Flowers Card! (only available through the end of the month)

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific congrats note or your best apology (respectively) will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

This brings the current lineup of Greeting Cards available for purchase to the following:

  • Open Edition (will always be available; ONE Purchase yields FOUR munzees)
    • Birthday
    • Get Well
    • Thank You
    • Congrats
    • Sorry
    • Sorry 1
    • Sorry 2
    • Sorry 3
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Stay Home
    • May Flowers

As a refresher, the point structure for Greeting Cards is as follows:

  • Open Edition
    • Deploy: 50
    • Capture: 40
    • CapOn: 25
  • Limited Edition
    • Deploy: 60
    • Capture: 50

Cyclops & Nymph Variants Complete the Set!

If you love characters from fantasy novels, movies, and shows, these new Mythological Munzee Variants should be right up your alley! You can now upgrade both the Cyclops and Nymph Mythological Munzees into new variants!

In celebration of completing the Myth Variant set we are also now allowing players to own multiples of the same Mythological Munzees! This was something a number of you indicated you would be interested in during our survey earlier in the year, another fun option for those who are interested. You can learn more details further down the blog, but check out the POB Collection in the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE!

Much like AlternaMyths, the Mythological Munzee Variants are twists on the original Myth types that allow them to bounce to other types of munzees. These variants are only available to Myths that have been “Upgraded.*”

All four of our new variants will have the same point values:

  • Deployment: N/A
  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points

Minotaur Cyclops

This half-bull, half-man creature is more beast than buddy! This variant of the Cyclops Mythological Munzee charges to the following:

Balor Cyclops

This Irish giant may only have one eye, but he’ll give Medusa a run for her money! This variant of the Cyclops Mythological Munzee stomps to the following:

Vampire Nymph

She may be vegetarian, but that doesn’t mean your neck is safe! This variant of the Nymph Mythological Munzee flies to the following:

Elf Nymph

She may be a feast for the eyes, but she’s as deadly as she is beautiful! This variant of the Nymph Mythological Munzee floats to the following:

Upgrading Your Myth

Once your Myth is upgraded with the Bouncer Upgrade Credit, you can convert it to a new type similar to how you would convert any other type of munzee. Remember that you can only convert a Myth Variant once, and after a Myth has been changed, it cannot go back. The Bouncer Upgrade Credit also allows for the opportunity to “nudge” your Myth to a new munzee up to three times a day in the MHQ 24-hour day after it has sat for three hours. Plus it gives you the opportunity to rename your Myth to something personal and creative!

Points for Myth Variants will remain the same. Myth Variants will also continue counting toward their specific Myth badges just like normal. The only thing that changes with an Upgrade is what it bounces to, as well as a new capture icon in the Specials list. For more info on Variants visit the Munzee Help GuideCOMING SOON: Myth Variant badges! Details will be made available when those launch at a later date!

NEW Ability to Purchase Multiples of the Same Myth

If you can’t choose between an original myth and its variants, you now have the option to purchase another (base level) myth so you can own the whole set! We’ll be restocking past myths periodically, but for now Cyclops, Nymph, Leprechaun, and Mermaid Myths are available for multi-purchase! These 4 myths will be available in the store through Tuesday morning, May 26th. You may purchase up to 2 within 365 days. So if your original purchases were years ago you are able to buy 2 currently. If you purchased one of these myths in November you can only purchase one additional myth at this time.

To be clear you will be buying an additional base Myth. If you want the other variants you will still need to upgrade. For example, you must purchase a Mermaid in order to upgrade to a variant, you can not directly buy a Melusine Mermaid. You are also able to just own multiple of the base level myth, you do not have to upgrade if you want multiple leprechauns.

Here’s one more early bit of information, this weekend will be double points for all activity on all of the myths and variants in this post! All the details will be released tomorrow but Cyclops, Nymphs, Mermaids, Leprechauns, and all their variants will be double points!

With the addition of the new Cyclops and Nymphs, the set of Myth Variants is complete! Now that you can begin purchasing multiple Myths you can work toward completing the entire collection. Which variant will you be upgrading to today? Let us know on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

Munzee on!

Celebrate the Heroes of Today With These Soaring Specials!

With both National Teacher’s Day AND National Nurse’s Day falling on the first week of May (not to mention Mother’s Day the week after!) we thought it would be a great idea to have our next specials honor essential workers! Their work makes it possible for many of us to function while staying safe at home, putting themselves at risk. Since “essential worker” sounds a bit bland, we decided to call them Hometown Heroes instead!

The first of our Hometown Heroes specials have just launched, at 12:00 MHQ time on May 18. The first icon is the one on the far left, Stay Safe. The quantities of masks will increase at random times, once launched, until they leave the map at 23:59 MHQ time on June 7! The hero masks will bounce every 6 hours or when capped. The heroes themselves will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. The Stay Safe icon will bounce every 2 hours or when capped.

Each of the 5 mask icons correspond to a different hero! Will you be able to collect them all?

Points

  • Capture: 200 points for each mask, 150 points for the Stay Safe icon, 100 points for each hero.
  • CapOn: 50 points for ALL Hometown Hero bouncers

The heroes will bounce to all virtual colors. The mask icons will bounce to amethyst, sapphire, air mystery, citrine, onyx, electric mystery, and Skyland. The Stay Safe icon will only bounce to the white virtual.
ALL Hometown Hero specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store.
You can access the Hometown Hero specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.
These virtual specials are not blastable.

Badges

There is also a line featuring 5 new badges to earn by capturing some of the different types of specials. They are not all available at the time of launch but will be added throughout the first week. We’re revealing one of these badges below:

The Super Stamper!- Capture at least one Delivery Mask special.

Can you collect all 5 badges? Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!
