Extended In-App Language Features Are Here!

Hello! Ahoj! Hej! Szia! Hallo! Hei! Munzee is an international game complete with an incredible variety of players from all over the world. One aspect of the newest version of the app that we have been prioritizing is the extended language feature, and today we are happy to announce the inclusion of six additional languages in the Munzee app! 

As of the publication of this blog, we are thrilled to announce the addition of the following language options:

  • Czech
  • Danish
  • Hungarian
  • German
  • Dutch
  • Finnish

In addition to our latest language options, we also have a number of other languages being worked on as well. We hope to release these languages as soon as possible!

Ready to change your language? This very simple process can be done through the Munzee app! Since the update is over-the-air, as long as you have the latest version of the Munzee app, then the language options should automatically appear without needing to download any updates. You will need to force close the app to see the OTA update be installed.

Once you’ve logged into the app, go to your Settings option from the dropdown menu. In Settings you will see the option for languages, where you will be able to select from the seven current languages offered. Be sure to confirm your language switch by pressing “Reload” to apply the change. If you’re more of a visual learner, we put together this Help Guide article to walk you through the process!

Currently we are seeking player translation assistance for the following languages:

  • Lithuanian
  • Afrikaans
  • Portuguese
  • Malay
  • Russian
  • Italian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
  • French
  • Polish

If you would like to help us translate any of these language options, please email tamara@freezetag.com with the title “Translation Help.” Don’t see your language on the list, send us an email if you’re willing to start the translation project. A huge thank you to all the players who volunteered their time to help us translate the current language options so far!

We hope these language updates will show our international fanbase some love! We appreciate each and every player who helps make Munzee great!

Munzee on!

Booster Credit and QRew Updates!

A new Munzee app update has just been released, featuring new capabilities for Booster Credits and QRew! This over the air update is now live, so check it out!

Booster Credits

Since our Urban Fit Munzee launched three weeks ago, players have been earning special Physical Deploy Booster Credits each time they cap/deploy 15 Urban Fit Munzees within a MHQ 24-hour day. While these credits have been available to be earned, they have not been able to be used. Today we are happy to announce the much-anticipated Booster Credit update that enables players to put their hard-earned credits to use!

That’s right, you are able to become Positively Charged at a time of your own choosing! To learn how to use the Booster Credit, we put together the helpful video below. For all information about Munzee Booster Credits, you can also check out our Booster Credit Help Guide article.

To activate a Booster Credit, first go to your player profile. You will find your available Booster Credits under the “Inventory” tab. Click on the Booster Credit you would like to use. Whenever you’re ready, click the “Activate” button to start.

We understand how valuable map space is, so if you’d prefer to hide the Booster timer you can do so on the Booster Credit page. To hide the timer, simply click on the icon to go back to the Booster Credit page, and toggle the switch to remove the timer from the map. Keep in mind that you can always show the timer again by going back to the Booster Credits page through the Inventory section in the Profile. The page will also show you how many credits you have in stock.

As a reminder, the Physical Deploy Booster Credit allows you to become “positively charged” and receive double points on all physical deploys for the next 120 minutes. That includes ALL types of physical munzees, PLUS you get to choose when to activate the Physical Deploy Booster! This special feature will allow you to time the perfect deploy streak to really multiply your points. AND…as of right now, Hadavale captures will give a booster credit instead of instantly making your account become positively charged!

There’s nothing like a double points opportunity to kickstart a happy weekend! You also might notice that some new types of Booster Credits are coming soon… so keep patient!

QRew:

The latest update also gives players who have earned the QRew title the ability to replace munzees. To avoid confusion, QRew titles have been updated for clarity. A mini-map has also been added to the compass screen, which only displays the munzee you currently have selected.

We hope all of these updates are met with player satisfaction! We are constantly working on advancing the game to make it as fun and up to date as possible. Stay tuned for more updates and announcements! There are lots of exciting projects on the horizon that we can’t wait to share!

Munzee on!

You’d Have to be a Fool to Miss These Specials…

Qu’est-ce que tu as fait aujourd’hui? Le train train? Ou un chose plus cool? Arrêtez! C’est le temps pour un surprise! MONTRE-MOI, tu dis? D’accord! Un peu de patience, mon ami…

Happy April Fools’ Day, or as the folks in France say, Poisson d’Avril! If you don’t have a flat fish to stick on someone’s back, don’t worry, because MHQ has got you covered with a Flat Fish special of your own! Quel bon chance!

Flat Fish 

Physical Flat Fish Munzee seasonal specials will be foolishly flopping around the map today at 11:11 MHQ time, so in a rare turn of events, you might want to make a wish that you end up an April Fools’ fish! Fortunately, if you don’t have a foolish first today you still have until 11:11 MHQ time on April 11 to enjoy this fishy special.

That Daniel Fischer surprised us with a whopping 401 fish flopping their way onto the map. However, much like a fish out of water, this special might just flop around when it comes to numbers deployed. Quel bordel! These Munzee Owned Bouncers (MOBs) will remain in place for four hours or when capped, whichever comes first, so you’re going to have to be a clever fisherman or woman to reel them in.

Points

  • Cap: 100 points
  • Host: 44 points

These one-dimensional aquatic animals will be drawn to Greenies, Scatter Munzees, the new Urban Fit Munzees, and all five physical Mystery Munzee types (Regular, Ice, Water, Earth, and Fire). These flopping, flapping flat fish WILL be attracted to magnets, which you can pick up from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

There will be two badges to earn for reeling in this holiday special. The first badge will appear as follows:

Flat Fishing- Capture 1 Flat Fish

But wait- THERE’S MORE?!

Fish swim in schools after all, and it looks like our Flat Fish brought along a Red Herring for company.

Mon dieu! Beacoup des poissons! 

Red Herring 

This Virtual MOB will also remain in place for 4 hours or when capped, whichever comes first. There will be 0104 Red Herrings on the map to shake things up. These fishy fellows will be attracted to all color virtuals, as well as crossbows, because what better way to catch a fish than with a crossbow? C’est un blague!… je pense.

Points

  • Cap: 100 points
  • CapOn: 44 points

Comme les autres poissons, the Red Herring WILL be attracted to magnets. The capture radius will be 300 feet, but these virtuals are NOT blastable. (Don’t cry, because fish can’t!!!) They will also be on the map from April 1 at 11:11 MHQ time until April 11 at 11:11 MHQ time unless Daniel Fischer feels like mixing things up.

There will also be two badges associated with capturing the Red Herring. The first will appear as follows:

Swimming Sleuth- Capture 1 Red Herring

Just remember…

We hope you have a foolishly fun time with this France-inspired April Fools’ Day. If you’d like to participate in Poisson d’Avril, we even have a Flat Fish PDF you can download, print out, and stick on your friends’ backs! What are friends for? You can also find a .PNG version below if you have trouble with the PDF.

When your friend discovers the fish taped to their back, be sure to shout “poisson d’avril!” as your friend has now become an “April fish” for falling for the prank. Share a picture of your successful shenanigans with the hashtags #FlatFish and #MunzeeOn and be sure to tag our Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter pages! We would love to have some fishy fun to share. 🐟

Bon Poisson d’Avril, and Munzee on!

Urban Fit Munzees Gear Up to Race onto the Map!

The great sneaker vs. tennis shoe terminology debate on social media, may have seemed a bit random, but you should know better!  No, that wasn’t just MHQ having fun. When it comes to this multi-layered game, there’s always an agenda, so we’re happy to announce that the new Urban Fit Munzees will be ready to race this afternoon!

Urban Fit

This new type of munzee will go on sale this afternoon (March 28) at 15:00 MHQ time. The Freeze Tag Online Store will be selling physical credits, but authorized Resellers will also have a sticker version available for purchase. The credits will normally be priced at 5 for $5, but for today only they’re on sale for 5 for $4.50. Resellers will be selling packs of 10 stickers for $5, but stock will be limited so make sure you follow them on social media to know when they go live. Our store link will be live at 15:00.

Points

  • Deploy: 50
  • Cap: 40
  • CapOn: 20

Deploy proximity will be 150 feet from all other Fit Munzees, all other normal proximity rules apply.

As an additional bonus, all Premium Accounts have been gifted with two courtesy Urban Fit credits at the time of launch. Clan members might want to hold off on deploying those just yet though…

Running Rewards COMING SOON

Need a BOOST to get moving? The Urban Fit munzee comes with a special feature that you can unlock very soon!

When 15 Urban Fitness Munzees are capped and/or deployed during an MHQ 24-hour day, the player will earn a 2x Physical Deploy Booster Credit*.

Remember our Pouch Creature friend the white ghost Hadavale? The Booster Credit will operate in a similar way; when activated you will become “positively charged” and receive double points on all physical Deploys for the next 120 minutes. This is for ALL types of physical munzees, for an entire two hours!  There’s one BIG differences though!

While capping Hadavale starts the two hours immediately, with a Booster Credit you can decide when you want it to begin. Players will be able to earn more than one Booster Credit a day each time they cap/deploy 15 Urban Fitness Munzees.

Please note that this booster credit will not be able to be used at the moment, but it will be stored and available for use in an upcoming app update. Again, you will still be able to earn these Booster Credits when capping/deploying Urban Fits TODAY, but you will not be able to use them just yet. You can see when you earn the credits in the usual location. We thank you for your patience, we promise this particular update is sure to be a great FIT.

Don’t say we didn’t give you motivation to get moving!

Badges

If Booster Credits aren’t enough to get your heart racing, we also have two new lines of Urban Fit badges for capturing and deploying these new munzees.  We won’t show you all of them just yet, but here are the first two you can start earning TODAY (after 3pm)!

Are you ready to hit the gym? Or maybe just a nice long walk and cap. It doesn’t matter if you call them sneakers, tennis shoes, trainers, runners, joggesko, or anything else! Just slip them on, lace them up, and get active!

Munzee on!

*It is possible in the future that there could be different types of boosters earned from this product.
If you need more info watch for a video explanation from Rob on social media later today!

 

***The Urban Fit munzee will only be displayed on the map and filters in the NEW 4.0 version of the app. If you haven’t updated yet, now is the time!

Washington Iconic Location Munzees Join the Map!

We’re excited to announce the latest Tourism Munzee destination and welcome the Washington Iconic Locations virtual munzees to the map! Not to be confused with Washington D.C. (which is more than 2,500 miles away), Washington state earns the distinction of being the only state to be named after a United States president, which is why this lovely wigged man is on the icon.

The Washington Iconic Locations join other Tourism Munzees, such as Australia, Great BritainFlorida, California, and more. You can access these special virtual munzees by turning on your Tourism filter!

The Washington Iconic Location virtuals are deployed by an MHQ account based on a database of historical markers that player Jellybean88 helped us put together! Players will earn 50 points when they capture the latest Tourism Munzee in the state that also earns the distinction of housing billionaire Bill Gates, as well as the largest apple production in the country.

Like other Historical and Iconic Location Munzees, these new Tourism munzees will not be blastable. They also will not be accompanied by a distinct set of badges, as captures will instead count towards the Tourism line of badges.

Our Tourism badges are primarily linked to the Historic and Iconic Munzees from different countries around the world, as well as states in the U.S. There are six badges in total, with plans to release more Historic and Iconic Location Munzees in the future, so stay tuned! If you ever come across any Iconic Location or Historic Munzees deployed in the wrong place, please contact support with the name/URL of the munzee and correct information.

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, to let us know your progress!

Munzee on!

Czech Republic & Slovakia Iconic Location Munzees Join the Map!

Two new Iconic Location Munzees will be dropped on the map today at 10:00 MHQ, with Czech Republic and Slovakia joining the likes of Australia as our latest Iconic Location Munzees.

Our most recent Tourism Munzees will join the ranks of Great BritainFlorida, California and more. You can locate these special virtual munzees by turning on your Tourism filter.

Iconic Location Munzees are deployed by an MHQ account based on a database of historical markers, with player d-n helping us map out our latest locations.  Players will earn 50 points when they capture either the Czech Republic Iconic Location Munzee or the Slovakia Iconic Location Munzee. These virtuals will be non-blastable, so it’s going to take a bit of work to cap them. Think you have what it takes?

Like some of our other Iconic and Historic Location Munzees, the Czech Republic and Slovakia munzees will not be accompanied by a distinct set of badges. Instead all captures will count towards the newly released Tourism line of badges. Tourism badges are largely linked to Historic and Iconic Location Munzees, which feature different countries from around the world. Currently there are a total of six badges.

With today’s release of our two new Iconic Location Munzees, we’ve also decided to launch an extension of the Great Britain Iconic Location Munzees. They will now be available to cap in the entirety of the United Kingdom! Keep your eyes peeled, because we plan to release more Historic and Iconic Location Munzees down the line!

If you ever notice any Iconic Location or Historic Munzees deployed in the wrong place, please contact support with the name/URL of the munzee and correct information. And don’t forget to connect with us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to let us know if you’ve capped an Iconic Location Munzee yet!

Happy Hunting, and Munzee On!

Australia Iconic Location Munzees Deployed for Australia Day!

G’day, mates! If this greeting didn’t tip you off, we’re excited to announce we’re dropping our Australia Iconic Location Munzees today at 08:00 MHQ since it’s officially Australia Day (1/26) in the homeland! Since we’re following the timezone of our friends Down Under, that leaves many of you with plenty of time to practice terrible Australian accents and commit the cardinal crime of confusing Aussies with Kiwis!

Our latest Tourism Munzee will join the ranks of Great BritainFlorida, California and more. You can locate these special virtual munzees by turning on your Tourism filter.

What better way to celebrate Australia Day than by pretending to be a tourist to capture some munzees? And if you happen to be a tourist, then you’re in luck! Now you have something fun to add to your to-do list while you check out everything that makes this continent great.

The Australia Iconic Location Munzees are deployed by an MHQ account based on a database of historical markers brought to us by Munzee player rubik80, and his team, including SpySmurf, SammyDiddly, and TeamKamikaze! Thanks for all the invaluable help! Players will earn 50 points when they capture these new tourism munzees. Like other Historical Location Munzees, these virtuals will not be blastable. That means you’re going to have to get out there and do some walking!

Australia Iconic Location Munzees will not be accompanied by a distinct set of badges. Captures for these will instead count towards the newly released Tourism line of badges! Tourism badges will be primarily linked to the Historic and Iconic Munzees from different countries around the world, as well as states in the U.S. There are six badges in total, with plans to release more Historic and Iconic Location Munzees in the future!

If you notice any Iconic Location or Historic Munzees deployed in the wrong place, please contact support with the name/URL of the munzee and correct information. Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for all the latest news and to share how you Munzee.

So throw some shrimp on the barbie (even though they’re called prawns), and Munzee on!

Introducing Tourism Capture Badges!

We’re excited to announce a new line of badges for capturing munzees associated with the Tourism filter are now available to earn! These badges are primarily linked to the Historic and Iconic Munzees from different countries around the world and states in the US, but they will also include one-off lines like the Muncie, IN Garfield Virtual Munzees.

Munzees that will count towards these badges include:

There will be six badges in total (you can see the first three above) and this line is retroactive. Although these can be earned in specific areas we are continuing to expand our Tourism line in the near future. We’ve worked with players in the past to help locate databases of historic and iconic locations, so reach out if you’d like to help!

Thank you all for your support! We hope this gives you the drive to continue exploring new areas and learning about the local history. Good luck and Munzee on!

Virtual Garden Places Munzees!

We’ve got an all new Places Munzee and this one is special! Have you ever wanted an easy way to identify where Munzee Virtual Gardens are without having to load the entire design on the map? Well you’re in luck!

Starting RIGHT NOW you can purchase Virtual Garden Places Munzees in the Freeze Tag Online Store at https://store.freezetag.com/products/places-munzees!

Virtual Garden Places Munzees can be deployed as an indicator of a Munzee Virtual Garden. These gardens can be made up of any type of virtual Munzee (clan weapons, jewels, etc.). Please note that this type is not a part of the actual Garden, but instead a pin to indicate its general location. Munzee Virtual Gardens are player created works of art based on Virtual Munzee deploys. Examples of Virtual Gardens include Sunset Cowboy in Ft. Worth, TX, Rose Garden in UK, and Scared Kitty in Lithuania. You may also choose to deploy this type of Place near an official Munzee Emerald Garden.

There are so many unique Virtual Gardens throughout the world, so this new Places Munzee will work slightly different than others. Virtual Garden Places Munzees have a lowered 0.5 mile deploy proximity, so if there are other Gardens nearby you’ll still be able to deploy one. Only one Place is allowed per garden, and the garden must contain a minimum of 50 virtual type Munzees. When submitting your Virtual Garden Places Munzee for approval we ask that you include a link to the Garden’s location on the Munzee map and also any helpful information in the Munzee Notes section. You can do this by submitting and then visiting the Munzee page to update the name and notes while it is pending approval. Also if there is a spreadsheet associated with the garden link it in the description so others can help grow it.

Since Virtual Garden Places Munzees will need to be double checked on the Munzee map it may take a bit longer than usual to approve these. Please bear with our support staff and if they decline your submission please work with them to locate the area for confirmation. You will receive an email with approval or rejection with a reason. Please see all details about Places Munzees in our help manual.

Virtual Garden Places Munzees are available for $5, and you can purchase two per account every 30 days. Normal Places Munzees are $10 each and you are limited to one per type every 30 days. Since these new Munzees are more affordable, and they are allowed to be closer together, the points for Virtual Garden Places Munzees are a bit lower as well.

Points:
  • Deploy: 40
  • Capture: 10
  • Cap-On: 5

Like other Places Munzees, these will have 1,000 ft capture radius, can be captured daily, but cannot be captured via Blast Captures. You can also earn badges for capturing Places Munzees as well as capture streaks!

With all of these new Places Munzees available we have expanded the Places Munzee filters in the current version of the Munzee app. You’ll now be able to filter the map by individual Places Munzee types. So if you’re just looking for Virtual Gardens, you’ll be able to make that a bit easier. The current layout of the filters may seem a bit clunky, but a filter reorganization is a big feature for Munzee 4.0, so this will be a lot more organized when that version launches soon. Once again thank you for your patience as we roll out new Munzee types alongside our 4.0 development!

So get out there and explore the artistic glory of Virtual Garden Munzees!

Munzee on!
