November Garden Gnome Reminder + December Preview!

As the month comes to a close, we wanted to make sure you were heading into December with your desired Garden Gnomes! The skin for completing your November capture streak (and the corresponding badge) will be awarded in early December, but we couldn’t wait to share what’s in store!

November Garden Gnome Reminders

If you haven’t picked up a Garden Gnome yet, they are available in the Freeze Tag Store for $2.

Each month, the price of a Garden Gnome will decrease by $1. However, players can only purchase 1 Garden Gnome every 28 days.

Don’t forget that you’ll need to own at least 8 Garden Gnomes by the end of the year to have a permanent one next year — so make sure to stock up soon if you’re a fan of these sporty lawn decorations!

We also released special Reseller Garden Gnomes in March — if you’re interested, you can check out our blog post on them HERE!

December Garden Gnome Details

What Gnome Skin can you look forward to receiving in December? The skilled Skiing Garden Gnome! Like the other gnomes, the Skiing Garden Gnome is a temporary POB that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31. as long as players with permanent Garden Gnomes continue to use it.

As stated earlier, to earn this skin, you’ll need to have completed this month’s (November’s) capture streak. Once the skin is awarded in December, you can change the skin on the gnome to this one at any point — refer to our original blog post for the instructions!

Points

  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 300

You can find these chill gnomes gliding to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, the Skiing Garden Gnome will scatter up to 3 NEW Gnome Toque Toppers nearby when it is captured!

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

The rewards for Gnome Hats are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

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

Badges

As a reminder, Garden Gnomes 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 gnomes you deploy, the merrier!
  • Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned gnome!
  • Overall capture badges — capture as many gnomes as you can find!

While we revealed images for the first of each badge line in the original post, we are happy to show you the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Skiing Garden Gnome:

We hope you aren’t iced out from earning December’s Gnome Skin! Don’t forget to keep your streak up through December — you’ll need to in order to earn the extra Gnome Skin if you’ll have a permanent Garden Gnome next year!

Munzee on!

Secret ZeeOps- Operation: Mr. E (November 2021)

All caught up with Secret ZeeOps and looking for more? Here’s a new one available in the ZeeOps Hub for the usual cost of 1,500 Zeds. For now, it will be available for purchase until 23:59 MHQ on December 31. If you’ve purchased a Secret ZeeOp, you will be able to complete it and collect rewards even after it is no longer available for purchase.

Can you help us track down a former agent? If you complete ALL the missions in Operation: Mr. E, you’ll receive the snazzy badge below, along with both forms of the Master of Disguise Munzee (more info below!) and various other rewards listed in the app!

There are 3 levels. Level 1 has 3 missions, Level 2 has 5 missions, and Level 3 has 5 missions. Each level ends with more prizes.

We may share this information moving forward with other Operations but possibly not.

Master of Disguise Details

The Master of Disguise (MoD) is a Zeecret Weapon that behaves similarly to the Surprise Munzee in that it appears on the map as its own pin, but when captured it actually awards the capture of another type.

Did you catch the difference between how the MoD and the Surprise Munzee work? It’s quite subtle, so let’s clarify: when you capture a MoD, it awards the capture of another type, meaning, if you check the [Achievements] –> [Specials] area of the app you will see the pin image of that type. When you capture a Surprise, it will still award the capture of a Surprise (and will be what you see in the [Achievements] –> [Specials] area of the app) but the capture message and the points you receive will vary based on the types currently in the Surprise pool.

The pool for the MoD is different than the one for the Surprise, so don’t expect Jewels and Destination Rooms (at least for now)!

Points

  • Deploy: 50
  • Capture: varies according to “disguise” — if you are awarded the actual Master of Disguise capture (a rare possibility) it is worth 100 points
  • CapOn: varies according to “disguise” — if another player is awarded the actual Master of Disguise capture (a rare possibility) from one that you have deployed, it is worth 35 points to you

You can access MoDs by turning on their filter in “Physicals – ZeeOps” and “Virtuals – ZeeOps”. If you manage to receive an actual MoD capture, you will earn a special badge — as there is only one badge in this line, we’ll keep it a secret for now. Capping these new munzees will also contribute progress towards the overall Zeecret Weapon captures badge line!

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.

Sir Prize Santa is Shaking Up the Holiday Season!

Last year we started a new Advent Calendar-like tradition with the Holiday Card Collectors Club! Thanks to the positive response, we had similar releases for Valentine’s Day and our 10th Birthday that were also well-received. This time, to keep things fresh and equally exciting for all players, we decided to tweak the formula a bit and create Sir Prize Santa, which you’re able to purchase starting NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

Sir Prize Santa Details

Expect a surprise inside every day up to and including Christmas day! Since this period is slightly shorter than the Holiday Mailbox’s, we’ve packed it with more goodies than before to make up for the difference. Like the HCCC, Club members will receive virtual items only.

When you deploy this new game piece nearby it will only be visible to AND cappable by you. IT MUST BE DEPLOYED IN APP! To ensure that you are able to capture this new game piece each day, you’ll also be able to update its location if you’ll be traveling at any point. You can only move the Sir Prize Santa in app and do NOT need to undeploy first. We really don’t want you to miss out! It is very important you capture it each day.

The Sir Prize Santa is worth 100 deploy points! When it comes to captures, you’ll receive 10 points each day, but you’ll only receive additional items (the prizes) in December. The Sir Prize Santa can be captured up to 1000 feet away and is found under the Virtuals filter but ONLY visible to the OWNER. It will be archived after December 25th.

How the Sir Prize Santa Works

Starting December 1st at 00:01 MHQ, each day you cap your Sir Prize Santa you will be awarded a random prize, from a pool of prizes similar to the HCCC. Please note: (1) Greeting Cards will not be awarded each day as in the HCCC, however, you will have the option to stock up on Greeting Cards with what you receive from Sir Prize Santa if you choose (2) since the prizes are random, you may receive different items from other players in the same tier/list; however, those in the same tier/list will eventually receive all the same items, just on different days, and (3) that you’ll only be able to collect prizes for the 25 days of the prize period, so you really don’t want to miss a day. Once you cap the Sir Prize Santa you’ll earn points, and depending on which tier of Santa’s List you purchase you may also get some extra prizes!

There are 3 tiers of Santa’s List you can purchase HERE. As stated above, since the time period for the Sir Prize Santa is slightly shorter than the HCCC, we’ve added extra goodies so that the content and pricing is similar. You are only able to purchase ONE tier per player account.

  • Tier 1 “Naughty List” is available for $9.99 and includes the NEW Sir Prize Santa, which will give you something to cap each day and deliver 25 random prizes for you to use.
  • Tier 2 “Nice List” is available for $14.99 and includes the NEW Sir Prize Santa and better (higher-value) prizes than Tier 1! You’ll also get some special bonuses scattered throughout the prize period, which could be double points days, exclusive specials or scatters to cap, etc.
  • Tier 3 “Rob’s List” is available for $24.99 and includes the NEW Sir Prize Santa and better prizes than Tier 2 PLUS all bonuses we have planned (some that Tier 2 will not have access to), AND a NEW TR33 T0PP3R mech! The bonus rewards will be well worth joining this tier over the previous two. You can find out more about the TR33 T0PP3R below!

Once you’ve decided on a Tier, you can purchase it in the FT Store! Please make absolutely sure you’re satisfied with the Tier you select before purchasing, as we may not be able to change it. You may only join one tier. You will still be able to purchase a spot on Santa’s List until 12:00 MHQ on Thursday, December 15, but you won’t be able to earn rewards from the days that have passed. We suggest getting on Santa’s List as soon as possible to make sure you won’t miss out and prepare for December fun!

TR33 T0PP3R Details

Like the other Munzee Mechz, the TR33 TOPP3R is a temporary POB that will remain on the map until it has been captured 10 times. If you are on Rob’s List, you will receive a fully-built TR33 TOPP3R that will auto-deploy on 00:01 MHQ on December 1st. You will also receive the Blueprint to rebuild it when you have earned enough Cogs in the future.

Points

  • Deploy: 777
  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 133
  • Takeoff (10th Cap): 500

You can find these dynamic decorations blasting off to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

TR33 TOPP3Rs will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture TR33 TOPP3Rs on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same TR33 TOPP3R visits you. TR33 TOPP3Rs are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access TR33 TOPP3Rs by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” filter.

When a TR33 TOPP3R is captured, it will scatter up to 3 N1NJ4 ST4Rs.

These will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the TR33 TOPP3R owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn rewards for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes, have a capture radius of 300 feet, and you’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well. These scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for N1NJ4 ST4Rs are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 44 points

Badges

Deploying a Sir Prize Santa will earn you a special badge that you can see below. Similarly, deploying a TR33 TOPP3R will earn you the corresponding Blueprint badge, which you can also see below.

Lastly, there will be a line of capture badges that you can earn for TR33 TOPP3R or N1NJ4 ST4R captures, and possibly other types we release in the future! These are still being worked on in Santa’s workshop, but we’ll try to post the first badge when it’s ready!

Are you ready for 25 days of Christmas?

Munzee on!

Some Garden Gnomes are Going Gnomewhere!

After releasing the details for the eSports Gnome skin and experimenting with Halloween skins for Myths, we decided it would be a waste if Garden Gnomes disappeared completely from the map. Not to mention all the effort we put into creating them, and all the effort you put into keeping up your streak every day to earn them!

However, we’d still like to make room for new tPOBs we’re planning for next year. That, combined with the unique pricing of Garden Gnomes made it tricky for us to determine how many should stay, and what would be fair to players who have been collecting them. Ultimately, we’ve decided that players who own at least 8 Garden Gnomes (the actual gnomes, not the skins) will have 1 permanent Garden Gnome to keep.

If you meet this requirement by 23:59 MHQ on December 31st, the permanent Garden Gnome will be auto-deployed on your account some time on January 1st, and will retain the ability to switch between earned skins at any time. You may find that the process of making it a permanent POB has changed the base gnome’s appearance, though you’ll be able to access the original Garden Gnome as a skin and switch to it as well.

One More Skin!

Due to this change, we decided to create 1 more Garden Gnome skin, which you can earn by keeping up your capture streak in December. When the permanent Garden Gnomes are auto-deployed, they will come with this new skin, along with the skins you previously earned.

This also means that next year’s Monthly tPOB will not come with an extra skin in January (à la the Ice Hockey Gnome), and just be sold as the base version of that tPOB. Then, if you keep up your capture streak in January, you will receive a skin in February as usual.

Need more Garden Gnomes?

As mentioned in our monthly Garden Gnome posts, the gnomes can be purchased from the Freeze Tag Store once every 28 days, so we hope that if you’re close to that number and are interested in having a permanent Garden Gnome, this gives you enough time to pick one up. Since we’ve been reducing the price by a dollar each month, currently a Garden Gnome only costs $2! If you need a few more, don’t forget that our Authorized Resellers also have Garden Gnomes in stock, if you haven’t bought them already (each Reseller Gnome is limited to 1 per player).

Otherwise, don’t feel too bad if you won’t have a Garden Gnome to keep — next year’s Monthly tPOB is still in the works, and promises to have an equally fun theme, which we’ll announce once we have more details solidified!

Munzee on!

 

P.S. What do you think next year’s Monthly tPOB will be?

New Mechs for Oktoberfest!

Nothing quite rings in the fall season like Oktoberfest! We love the festivities so much that in 2013, it was the theme for first MHQ Bash — if you were around last year, you may remember our Bash from the Past special that was a throwback to that time. We featured Oktoberfest again in 2017’s MHQ Bash. Since we won’t be able to celebrate as we usually do, we designed some new Munzee Mechs to bring the party to you! Please welcome SteinBot and CarafeBorg!

NEW Mech Details

SteinBots and CarafeBorgs are temporary POBs that will remain on the map until they have been captured 5 times. The SteinBot is available at the Freeze Tag Store HERE. The CarafeBorg will be available in the In-App Store! When you purchase a SteinBot or CarafeBorg, you will receive a fully-built SteinBot or CarafeBorg that auto-deploys. You will also receive the Blueprint to rebuild it when you have earned enough Cogs in the future. These Mechs will be available until 12:00 MHQ on Thursday, October 7th.

Points

  • Deploy: 500
  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 100
  • Crush (5th Cap): 500

You can find these droid drink makers serving orders at the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

SteinBots and CarafeBorgs will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture SteinBots and CarafeBorgs on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same SteinBot or CarafeBorg visits you. SteinBots and CarafeBorgs are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access SteinBots and CarafeBorgs by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” filter.

When a SteinBot is captured, it will scatter up to 3 Botwursts. Similarly, when a CarafeBorg is captured, it will scatter up to 3 Dronuts.

These will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the SteinBot or CarafeBorg owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn rewards for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes, have a capture radius of 300 feet, and you’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well. These scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Botwursts and Dronuts are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 25 points

Badges

Deploying a SteinBot or a CarafeBorg will earn you the corresponding Blueprint badge. You can see these badges below.

There is also a line of capture badges that you can earn for SteinBot, Botwurst, CarafeBorg or Dronut Munzee captures! You can see the first badge in this line below.

We hope these mechs help keep you hydrated during the festivities!

Secret ZeeOps- Operation: Jungle Jammer (September 2021)

UPDATE: We also wanted to let you know we’ve swapped out a few Daily ZeeOps missions to include some of our newer releases!

All caught up with Secret ZeeOps and looking for more? Here’s a new one available in the ZeeOps Hub for the usual cost of 1,500 Zeds. For now, it will be available for purchase until 23:59 MHQ on October 31.

There are 3 levels. Level 1 has 3 missions, Level 2 has 4 missions, and Level 3 has 5 missions. Each level ends with more prizes.

We may share this information moving forward with other Operations but possibly not.

A New Gaming Munzee Fit For a Queen!

We have a special announcement for MunzPak subscribers, as the September MunzPaks will feature the brand new Chess Set Munzees! It will be available in Virtual and Hybrid MunzPak subscriptions, which you can order in the Freeze Tag Online Store beginning on September 1 at 00:01 MHQ time (remember if you order a MunzPak before then, you will be ordering the August one!). You can also purchase these munzees by themselves or in a few Gaming Packs HERE!

Chess Sets

This new munzee type is based on the classic game of chess, which has recently enjoyed an increase in popularity due to the Netflix show, The Queen’s Gambit. Chess Sets come in both Walnut (physical) and Maple (virtual) forms, though both forms work similarly and are worth the same point values.

The point values for the Chess Sets are as follows:

Points 

  • Cap: 64
  • CapOn: 30
  • Deploy: 50

Maple Chess Sets are not blastable. To access these munzees (including the scatters), turn on their filters in the “Physical – Gaming” and “Virtual – Gaming” sections.

Chess Pieces

Capping a Chess Set will cause up to three Chess Pieces to scatter nearby, like Feathers, within 1500 feet. This means there are no CapOn points, but if you’re lucky, you’ll get the rarer pieces — the point values for all of them are shown below! They’ll stay on the map for 2 hours after scattering. The capture radius is 300 feet for these, and you’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well! These can only be seen by the person who capped the Chess Set, similar to Infrared Munzees.

The point values for the Chess Pieces are as follows:

  • Pawn: 10
  • Knight: 30
  • Bishop: 30
  • Rook: 50
  • Queen: 90
  • King: 100

Badges

There are currently 9 badges you can earn by playing with our Chess Sets, split into 2 different badge lines. One badge line, which covers 6 of those badges, is based on the number of points you’ve earned with Chess Sets and Chess Pieces. You can see the first badge in this line below:

Priority Pawn – Earn 1,000 Total Points from Chess Set Munzees of any type.

The remaining 3 badges are based on capturing a specific combination of Chess Pieces. Since these badges have special requirements we’d like you to discover as you play, we want to keep them a secret for now. Hopefully they shouldn’t be too tough for you to get!

We hope you are raring to get some pieces on the board!

Munzee on!

As a reminder, Garden Gnomes 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 gnomes you deploy, the merrier!
  • Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned gnome!
  • Overall capture badges — capture as many gnomes as you can find!

While we revealed images for the first of each badge line in the original post, we are happy to show you the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Football Garden Gnome:

We hope you don’t fumble your chances of earning September’s Gnome Skin! Don’t forget to keep your streak up through September — you’ll need to in order to earn the October Gnome Skin!

Munzee on!
