NEW Myth Variant Capture Badges Are Hitting The Shelves!

With the release of our first Modern Myth, Poseidon, last month, we thought it was high time to review all things myth-related. Myth Variants have been around for a while and we recently completed the set — so we wanted to highlight their striking, unique designs with these new badges!

There are 6 capture badges to earn with a comic book theme. These badges are for Myth Variant captures, so be sure to track one down whenever it’s nearby! Think you can collect each volume? We won’t spoil all of the covers, but you can check out the first badge in the line below:

HORRORS of Mythology!: Vol 1- Capture 100 Myth Variants of any type.

There are also 3 additional new badges that have been added to the Myth Collector line. You may recall that these are awarded based on overall myth captures. As a reminder, you can see the first of this badge line below:

Myth Trapper – Capture 1,000 Mythological Munzees of any type.

This brings the total number of Myth Collector badges available to 6! We hope you look forward to seeing the new adventures depicted on each badge!

As these badge lines are retroactive, you may have already met the requirements for some of them, and should see them on your account soon! If not, please wait a few days as our system catches up with awarding these new badges to everyone who has earned them, before contacting support.

In celebration of these new badges, we have also added ALL of the Mythological Munzees to the store! Shop the whole collection HERE and remember you can now own multiples of the same Mythological Munzees! You may purchase up to 2 within 365 days. So if your original purchases were years ago you are able to buy 2 currently. This is perfect for completing Myth Variant sets! These Myths will be available in store until 12:00 MHQ on Friday July 10.

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

ZeeOps- Operation: Camp Out (July 2020)

Agents, we are happy to inform you that the mysterious transmissions we were receiving have successfully been decoded! However, the result didn’t give us much to go on… Thankfully, we’ve also had success cleaning all of our files (as far as we are aware), so we now have the resources to dedicate a large-scale effort in investigating the transmissions. This month, we’ll be sending you out on recon missions to gather some intel. Make sure to maintain your distance from others, even other agents, as the missions and your health may be compromised.

Depending on the Operation you choose, your requirements will be tailored to the environment you’ll be staking out. Basic and Advanced Operations will be surveying laboratories, so they will require Greenie and Evolution activity. Mega Operations will be surveying weapons factories, so they will require Clan Weapon activity. Ultra Operations will be surveying incoming cargo ships, so they’ll continue to require Fire and Ice activity, with some RUM activity as well. Like last month, we’ve placed the full mission details on pages that are only accessible with your agent login — the link is provided below.

July 2020 ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You will only have until July 31st at 23:59 MHQ to complete this month’s Operations. All four Operation types are available for this month- the Basic Op (3 days), the Advanced Op (7 days), the Mega Op (10 days), and the Ultra Op (14 days)!

You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Remember that if you hit a snag at any point in your Operation you can use the Mission Mulligan feature to keep going!

By completing any Operation this month you’ll earn the “Operation: Camp Out” badge.

 

This month’s Missions are found at https://www.munzee.com/ops/tasks

To start new Ops and view this month’s rewards please visit https://www.munzee.com/ops/new

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

July Flat Friends and QRewzdays Schedules!

July is our birthday month and it is going to be full of announcements, fun, updates, and new stuff. Everything we do may be subject to change. Remember to follow your local guidelines and Stay Home if required.

Forever Flat Schedule

Our first big announcement for birthday month is that all 4 of our Flat Friends will be on the map forever! That’s right, we’ve made the decision to keep all flats on the map permanently instead of on a rotating basis like they were originally planned. There are several reasons for this update, but the main reason is based on the success of doing this for the past 3 months. The number of points available on a daily basis remains high for owners and cappers with this special layer of munzees. We hope you appreciate this change in your favor!

July QRewzday Schedule

Now it’s time to mark your calendars for July QRewzdays 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! It’s the two non-clan days as usual and then all the multiples of 3 so it’s easy to remember!

The July QRewzdays are as follows:

  • July 1 at 00:01 MHQ time through July 3rd at  at 23:59 MHQ time,
  • The following dates beginning at 00:01 MHQ time until 23:59 MHQ time on the same day: July 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30

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!

July 2020’s Resolution Is Not Just For Kids!

Now that summer is in full swing, have you been able to enjoy some of your usual hot-weather activities? While it’s certainly easier to break a sweat due to the temperature, we hope you aren’t slacking off on your fitness regimen! 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 July we are featuring jump rope! Like last month’s exercise, jogging, jumping rope is a great aerobic exercise and is also very simple to do. Another benefit from jumping rope is that it exercises your coordination and ability to focus — after all, maintaining the rhythm you have turning the rope and jumping over it at the same time is no easy feat, and it gets harder as you become more tired. The only downside (or rather, barrier) to jumping rope is that it does require 1 piece of equipment and a space bubble big enough to fit your entire body comfortably within the bounds of the jump rope while standing or jumping. If you don’t have enough space, you might get your rope caught on something and injure yourself or others.

What is the perfect jump rope length?

The answer depends on whether you’re jumping alone or with a group! If you’re jumping alone, the perfect length will depend on your height. According to LiveStrong.com, anyone shorter than 4’9″ should use a 7-foot rope, while anyone taller than 6’6″ should use an 11-foot rope. If, like most people, you’re somewhere in-between, check out the link to see how long your jump rope should be!

While it may be a while before you get to jump in a group, LiveStrong’s suggested rope lengths grow depending on how many people are jumping. For a single jumper with the ropes being turned by two others, a 12-foot rope should suffice. However, more than 4 jumpers will require at least double that length! If you’re jumping double dutch, these same recommendations apply — and both ropes should be the same length!

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!

Pick Peaches and Pears from Earth Mystery Trees!

While fall is typically the season associated with a bountiful harvest, summer has its own delicacies to look forward to! Starting at 12:00 MHQ today, there’s a chance these new scatters will appear after capturing a Tree!

We’re also excited to announce new badges for capturing Tree Scatters. Our mouths are watering at the thought of stuffing our faces with caramelized pastries, whipped cream, and these flavorful fruits!

NEW Earth Mystery Tree Scatters

In March we introduced new scatters for the Earth Mystery, changing from Boulders to Trees. Trees are extra-special since they also release their own scatters once they are capped. It’s scatterception! We promised to introduce more scatters from Trees, so here they are, just in time for some syrupy summer desserts!

Like the Red Apples and Cherry Blossoms, Peaches and Pears are both worth 25 points for Capture. To clarify — Red Apples and Cherry Blossoms will remain as possible scatters for Trees, so you have a chance for any of the 4 types.

Are you excited to capture these juicy new pins? Check your map for any uncaptured Earth Mysteries near you! Don’t see any? Pick some up in our All The Mystery Pack and trade deploys with another local player or you can get 5 Earth credits in our new store item.

Badges

We’ve also created a new badge line based on captures of individual Tree scatters! You can check out the badge for Red Apple captures below, but remember since some of these types have been out longer than others the badge requirements won’t be the same for each!

Apple Pie – Capture 100 Red Apple Scatters.

As these badges are retroactive, you may have already met the requirements for some of them, and should see them on your account soon! If not, please wait a few days as our system catches up with awarding these new badges to everyone who has earned them, before contacting support.

We hope you enjoy this new selection of fresh produce!

Munzee On!

Join us as we celebrate our favorite cyclist with double points!

Surprise! It’s double points on ALL Flat Lou activity starting today, June 17 at 13:00 through June 21 at 23:59. That means all deploys, captures, and cap ons will be worth double points.

WHY? We are so excited to support Louise in her first professional cycling race we thought it would be best to share it with all of you! She is cycling as part of the Škoda DSI Cycling Academy Race Team in the Škoda V-Women’s Tour. This is a 3 stage race taking place today, Thursday, and Friday at 7pm British time. The race is being aired on BBC Sport in the UK and will be available to watch on Facebook and Youtube for the rest of the world.

We hope you will join us in cheering on Louise and her team during this amazing moment in her cycling career. During this time we will also be making a donation to World Bicycle Relief for purchases of Flat Lou in the online store. This donation will be $200 PLUS $0.25 for every Flat Lou sold between now and Sunday at midnight.

Good luck Lou!

Complete Your Clan Wars Play Set With Trojan Unicorn Badges!

Last month, we announced the debut of the Trojan Unicorn and teased a new related badge line. The first Trojan Unicorns will be deployed soon (as long as players who’ve reached Level 3 collect their rewards!), so you’ll have a chance at earning these shiny new badges! Deploying a Trojan Unicorn will earn you the following badge:

To go along with this deploy badge, there are 6 capture badges to earn with an action-figure theme. These badges are for Trojan Unicorn captures, so be sure to track one down whenever it’s nearby! Think you can collect the whole set of CLAN WARS action figures? We won’t spoil all of the action figures, but you can check out the first badge in the line below:

Trojan Unicorn Action Play Set!- Capture one Trojan Unicorn Munzee

Lastly, there are also 3 badges to reward you for surviving burns from Flaming Arrow scatters! As there are only a few of these to collect, we’ll just show you the null image:

This brings the total number of Trojan Unicorn badges available to a nice, round 10! We hope you enjoy collecting the set!

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

ZeeOps- Operation: Smorgasbord (June 2020)

Agents, the process of cleaning the infected files in our databases seems to be going well! We announced last month that we were able to stop the virus’s spread, and now, a month later, that still rings true. Every day, we get closer and closer to a fully recovered HQ!

However, as you know, our work is never over. In the midst of all this, we’ve been receiving seemingly garbled transmissions from an unknown entity. In the case that these transmissions may be trying to inject rogue code into our systems, our engineers have been put to task on decoding them in a safe, staging environment. We will notify you if the engineers discover any relevant information to your tasks. For now, all remaining agents are tasked with completing more missions involving Fire and Ice munzees, Evolution munzees, and Gaming munzees to complete the file-cleaning process. To make the mission details more secure we’ve placed them on pages that are only accessible with your agent login, as you’ll see below.

June 2020 ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You will only have until June 30th at 23:59 MHQ to complete this month’s Operations. All four Operation types are available for this month- the Basic Op (3 days), the Advanced Op (7 days), the Mega Op (10 days), and the Ultra Op (14 days)!

You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Remember that if you hit a snag at any point in your Operation you can use the Mission Mulligan feature to keep going!

By completing any Operation this month you’ll earn the “Operation: Smorgasbord” badge.

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:

June QRewsday Schedule

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.)

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!
