Spooky Season is in Full Swing With Monster Nomads and Monzter Mash Week!

Why is a skeleton so mean? He doesn’t have a heart! Luckily we do, which is why we’re celebrating Halloween the right way with our brand new Monster Nomads launching tomorrow at 00:01 MHQ time! Are you ready to hear all the terrifyingly awesome details?

Monster Nomad MOBs

Our latest specials will run from 00:01 MHQ time on October 24 through 23:59 MHQ time on November 3. The Monster Nomads will feature 3 physical MOBs that land on Greenies and Premium Munzees. They will bounce around every 6 hours or when captured. The Mummy Mitt, Werewolf Paw, and Frankenstein Fingers will all be attracted to Munzee Magnets on Greenies to increase your chances of capping these high-point munzees.

Points
  • 666 points to both Capture and Host

There will be 30 specials total, aka 10 of each type. You can access these rare specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges & Personal

Monster hunting is no easy work, which means that it only seems fitting to award players with badges for their efforts. There will be 2 badges you can earn based on Monster Nomad captures. The first in the series will appear as follows:

Haunted Hitchhiker– Capture one Monster Nomad special of any type.

Is Halloween your favorite time of the year? Do you love everything about spooky season? Well we have just the Personal tag for you! You can shop our Monster Nomad Personal from the Freeze Tag Online Store for an extra dose of all things Halloween!

ZOMBIE OUTBREAK UPDATE!

The following is an official announcement from Zombie Emergency Engagement (Z.E.E.) officials. Please note that this is not a test. Repeat, this is not a test.

THE ZOMBIE OUTBREAK IS SPREADING AT RAPID RATES!

Despite the efforts of our worldwide community we’re seeing rapid growth of the viral outbreak that has been plaguing the game over the last week. Based on our research of the Zombies’ evolving genetic code, 68 new Zombies are being created every 6 hours. It will take every bit of fight we have to to survive this onslaught before Zee-Day on October 31 at 23:59 MHQ. If we can just make it to that point, we may be able to save humanity.

To commemorate the battles of the Zombie Apocalypse, the Freeze Tag Online Store is offering Personal Munzee Tags with a Zombie Hunter design. Per usual these are in limited quantity so get yours before they run out!

You can purchase Zombie Outbreak Personal Tags here:
https://store.freezetag.com/products/personal-munzee

Good luck on your Zombie hunting, despite the increased outbreak we know we can survive this if we work together!

Munzee on!

MH-BOO Bash Worldwide Badges!

We want the whole world to celebrate MH-BOO Bash with us, even if you can’t make it to McKinney, TX! We’ve got two exclusive badges that you can only earn this weekend. Anyone worldwide can earn these spooky badges as long as you complete the requirements!

These badges will be available from 00:01 on Oct 26 until 23:59 MHQ on Oct 28. Good luck and have fun growing the physical map near you!

We’re so excited to see players in McKinney this weekend, but to those who can’t attend we hope you’ll be there in spooky spirit! Don’t forget Z.E.E. still needs your protection from the Zombie outbreak too, so you’ll have your hands full. There also might be another Halloween event near you so be sure to check out the Events Calendar!

Munzee on!

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. 😉
