A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK HAS TAKEN OVER MUNZEE!

It appears Zombies have been attacking Greenies across the world! It all began at 00:01 when Patient Zero attacked Kardinya Primary in the most remote capitol city in the world, Perth Australia. McChickenNugget spread the virus to Melbourne Australia and then it was transmitted across the world, landing just half a mile from MHQ. Rob unknowingly infected the Munzee servers and it seems to be growing rapidly.

We don’t know what caused this infection, but here are the details we’ve been able to gather:

Zombie Emergency Engagement (Z.E.E.) officials have announced an all out Zombie attack on October 31 at 23:59 MHQ. This will wipe out the remaining walkers, but we all have to survive until then.

Zombies crawl to Greenies every 9 hours or when captured. According to research on the Zombies’ genetic code, an average of 19 new Zombies are created every 6 hours. This growth rate is manageable, but we’ll need your help taking down any Zombie you see.

To reward your bravery you’ll earn 68 points for every Zombie you capture. Hosts brave enough to attract a Zombie will earn 19 points for CapOns. Zombies will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets if you’re crazy enough to use them. Remember you can purchase up to 10 Magnets every 10 days.

As a commendation of your survival skills there are two badge ranks you can earn by capturing Zombies: Zombie Survivor and Zombie Hunter.

Z.E.E. officials have not revealed how many Zombies you must capture in order to earn these badges, but survival knows no limits.

We know it’s a lot to ask, but you must help Z.E.E. keep these Zombies at bay until they’re wiped out completely. We believe in you and good luck scouring the map.

Munzee on comrades!

Halloween Event Kickoff, Virtual Sale and Community Challenge!

Ghosts and ghouls, something wicked this way comes! Bewitching Lou is flying across the night sky because Halloween Munzee Events officially kick off today! This has been our biggest month ever for Munzee events, so we’re excited to see a big turnout this weekend.

With Halloween Events in overdrive, we want to give you all another opportunity to earn double points on all Flat Friends during MH-BOO Bash Weekend! There are 61 events this weekend alone, so here is your challenge:

The worldwide community will need to capture 500 event indicator pins and 5,000 event pins by 23:59 MHQ on 10/14. We understand that not everyone can make it to events, so we’ll also have a secondary goal for deploying virtual munzees of any type as well. If 2,500 virtuals of any type are deployed throughout the weekend, that can replace one of the other requirements.

Be sure to check the Munzee calendar to find an event near you. Deploy virts at events as well to better your chances, support other players, and gain ! We have a handful of virtual items on sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

  • Amethyst: $3 (originally $4)- BUY HERE
  • Emerald: $8 (originally $10)- BUY HERE
  • MVM: $3.75 (originally $4.50)- BUY HERE
  • Surprise: $3.75 (originally $4.50)- BUY HERE

Just a reminder that the point increase for Event Munzees is now effective as well!

  • Event pins are now worth 10 points each
  • Event Indicator Pins are now worth 100 points each
  • Event Badges are now worth 500 points
  • CoExist Munzees are now worth 200 points

We hope you all have a howling good time for the rest of the month and we can’t wait to see some of you at MH-BOO Bash! We might even have some fun tricks, or treats, up our sleeves for the worldwide community too…

Happy hauntings and Munzee on!

 

 

One final reminder for hosts from last month’s blog: All events moving forward will receive 50 event pins and proximity between event pins will be 100 feet. Effective date was October 12.

PSA: Events in October

Howdy Munzee community around the world!

October was already going to be a busy month for events with all of the Halloween events on the calendar! However over the past 4 days many of you have shown your commitment to reaching Level 5 in the Clan Wars in a new way, by hosting events. Due to the overwhelming number, over 130 as of the time of this blog post, I felt it was necessary to give all players a few expectations for events.

Event hosts are important to us at MHQ. You’ve always been a generally smaller audience interacting directly with Louise, our Worldwide Events Manager, and have come to understand our systems. With this new rush of hosts and events we would like to welcome you, and share a few words of wisdom and some expectations.

The first is easy, understand you are not the only host Louise is dealing with. Respect her time and your own by FULLY reading her event creation email because it includes ALL of the information you need to be a successful host.

Second, be prepared in advance. Louise is great and she works at all hours of the day and night, but she may not be able to handle your “emergency” in a timely fashion if you haven’t prepared yourself. Again, most questions she has are covered by the email she sends you with your account details, please read it fully. You can also seek the advice of others who have hosted in the past or work together with others to share the load.

Third, Location Location Location! Events need to be in their own location. You cannot have 2 events in the same place around the same time, otherwise it is considered one event. Have the 2nd event at a later time in another location.

Finally, YOU ARE AN EXTENSION OF MHQ* to any players who attend your events. You could be the first person to introduce someone to this great game! Please understand that event hosts are held to a higher set of rules:

  • Many events have proximity rules lifted so they can deploy physical munzees in crowded areas. This does not give you the right to break the rules and teach others to do the same.
  • All deployments should physically be in the location where the pin is on the map, just like the regular game.
  • No event should have multiple munzees to scan at a single location.
  • No event should be conducted with a sheet of paper with munzees on it to scan as you walk/ride/drive from one location to the next.

The rules of the game are in place for a reason. Event hosts are held to a higher standard and need to set an example for all players. This is an important point for us because you are representing the game of Munzee to a wider audience. YOU are growing the game. We appreciate that very much and ask that you do so respectfully.

Thank you for reading these rules and requests, violations are being dealt with in accordance with the player code of conduct.

Let’s all have a great time in October and maybe we’ll see you at some of the events!

Munzee On!

Rob, President of Freeze Tag Games

*you are figuratively an extension of MHQ. not literally. 😉

September Flat Schedule

But first some information about Real Louise and Flat Lou!

Flat Lou has not been sold for the month of August while we worked out a change to where our donation will be directed due to a special event! From August 29 through September 5 each Flat Lou sold will include a donation of $0.25 to The Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA). We’ve donated to *MNDA in the past and due to the special circumstances of this upcoming weekend we are excited to donate to them again. You can purchase Flat Lous in the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE.

Be on the lookout for double points on all Flat Lou activity August 31 through September 3. She is representing Great Britain at the Gran Fondo World Championships in Italy on Sunday. Her race begins at 8am and is 135 km long and 1950 m of elevation gain. It will be a tough day for her, but we know she can do it! Good luck Lou!

*About motor neurone disease (MND) and the MND Association:

  • MND is a fatal, rapidly progressing disease that affects the brain and spinal cord.
  • It attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles no longer work. MND does not usually affect the senses such as sight, sound, feeling etc.
  • It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breathe.
  • It affects people from all communities.
  • It kills around 30% of people within a year of diagnosis, and 50% within 21 months.
  •  A person’s lifetime risk of developing MND is up to 1 in 300.
  • Six people per day are diagnosed with MND in the UK.
  • It affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time.
  • It kills six people per day in the UK, this is just under 2,200 per year
  • It has no cure. The MND Association was founded in 1979 by a group of volunteers with experience of living with, or caring for, someone with MND. Since then, we have grown significantly, with an ever-increasing community of volunteers, supporters and staff, all sharing the same goal – to support people with MND and everyone who cares for them, both now and in the future.
  • We improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers.
  • We fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND.
  • We campaign and raise awareness so the needs of people with MND, and everyone who cares for them, are recognised and addressed by wider society.
