Need MORE Pets? Mari’s Flat Object is Actually 2-in-1!

You didn’t really think we’d celebrate National Pet Day with just Pet Rocks, did you? If so — consider it a late April Fool’s prank! With so many loveable pets out there, we knew we had to include a crowd-pleasing, cute, and cuddly animal in the festivities. We got more than we bargained for, as you’ll see — one became two!

The seventh Flat Object is brought to you by Mari, our productive Product Manager! She is the one who keeps MHQ running like a well-oiled machine! Thanks to her diligence in planning things well in advance, we’ve managed to meet a lot of our goals on schedule, rather than 1,000 hours each time! If you’ve attended any of the Munzee Events we’ve hosted in the past, you may have met Mari, but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know her, or would like a refresher, you can check out her most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Mari’s Flat Object is similar to Wylie’s in that it may be more accurately described as Flat Pets — but as it follows the same structure as other Flat Objects, we’ll still call it one for consistency. Say hello to the Flat Cats, based on her cats Benji and Burr! Benji is the orange one and Burr is the black one – they are brothers and the bestest friends in the whole world! 😺 They are the stars of many a Zoom call (and possibly the only things keeping Mari from going insane while stuck at home — call it the opposite of the crazy cat lady effect)! Read on to learn more!

Stake Your Claim on the Map With This NEW Flat Object!

It’s been a little over 2 weeks since Munzee Madness 11, and though it was still a multi-stage event, it feels like it ended so quickly. We really missed attending events in-person and seeing players we’ve known for years, along with some new faces! As its first event was in 2012, Munzee Madness is the longest-running annual event hosted by players. It was originated by one of our Resellers, 1849, who owns Gold’n Coins! This quick history lesson is just one example of Resellers helping to maintain and grow the Munzee community — so in honor of ALL our Resellers, we’ve created a NEW game piece just for them!

The sixth Flat Object is a little different from the previous objects, as it was not designed by one specific team member — instead, we’ve developed it to represent our Resellers! As Munzee is a global game, we appreciate that our Resellers make it easier for local players to get their hands on Munzee stickers and other physical items. On top of that, as mentioned above, they are often a huge part of maintaining and growing the local Munzee community.

This Flat (and the badges associated with them) will be continuing the pirate theme we’ve established for our Resellers. Read on to learn more!

Flat RUM Details

The Flat RUM joins the Flats as a virtual type. If you are interested in picking one up, they will be available at most of our Authorized Resellers’ shops some time today. The links to shop all of our resellers are below!

Flat RUM

  • Deploy: 19

ZEE-Dayz Coming Soon!

We hope you enjoy capturing the flags and embracing the pirate life!

Are You an Animal Lover? Then You’ll Love Wylie’s Flat Object!

Now that we’re well into 2022, it’s just about time to release our first Flat Object of the year! With National Love Your Pet Day and National Walking the Dog Day coming up, it seemed like the perfect time for this next game piece to come into the spotlight. Expect to see lots of Munzee Merch in the store based on its design in the coming weeks!

The fifth Flat Object is brought to you by Wylie, our powerhouse Production Specialist! If you ever ordered physical products from the Freeze Tag Store, she has been involved in every step of the process in bringing that product to you! From designing to manufacturing to shipping, she can do it all! If you’ve attended any of the Munzee Events we’ve hosted in the past, you may have met Wylie, but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know her, or would like a refresher, you can check out her most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Wylie’s Flat Object may actually be more accurately described as a Flat Pet — but as it follows the same structure as other Flat Objects, we’ll still call it one for consistency. Say hello to the Flat Murray, based on one of the great loves of Wylie’s life — her pet Corgi (sorry Dylan!). Like his mom and dad, Murray has a flair for fashion, so these pups (and the badges associated with them) will be dressed to the nines. Read on to learn more!

Put Pen to Paper — or Rather, Fingers to Keys — With Craig’s Flat Object!

At MHQ, we like to keep our players on their toes. We had quite a gap between the Flat Disc Golf Basket and the Flat Flashlight, and now, just over a month later, another new Flat Object?! Well, this month is National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo, so we couldn’t pass up this opportunity, as you’ll see! The rest of the MHQ staff has been using their spare moments thoughtfully designing their own Flat Object, so we hope you keep an eye out for them as they are released!

The fourth Flat Object is brought to you by Craig, the CEO! Don’t be intimidated by his title — Craig is one of the more outgoing members of the team who enjoys chatting with players at Munzee Events and learning what makes them tick (not that the rest of us don’t enjoy it — it just seems to come naturally to Craig, without any shyness or awkwardness). For those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know him, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

In his spare time, Craig turns to writing to give his creative juices an outlet. Did you know that he’s written plays that have been produced by theater companies?! It was definitely exciting for us to learn! For his Flat Object, he decided on a beloved symbol of writers everywhere — the Typewriter! Read on to learn more!

Flat Typewriter Details

The Flat Typewriter joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, blastable

Are You Afraid of the Dark? Fight Back With Tamara’s Flat Object!

We’ve certainly enjoyed playing with Robbie’s Flat Disc Golf Basket — it had its own special, limited-time scatters, and was also part of the most recent Flat Day the 13th! Can you believe it was released all the way back in April?! The rest of the MHQ staff has been using their spare moments thoughtfully designing their own Flat Object, so we hope you keep an eye out for them as they are released!

Play a Round of Disc Golf With Robbie’s Flat Object!

In February, we introduced the first Flat Object, the Flat DHS! We loved the fun personal touch Dylan gave to his namesake game piece, and when it comes to creativity, Dylan is a hard act to follow. The rest of the MHQ staff has been using their spare moments thoughtfully designing their own Flat Object, so we hope you keep an eye out for them as they are released!

The second Flat Object is brought to you by Robbie, our indispensable Project Manager! If you’re a WallaBee player, Robbie is certainly a familiar face, but lately Robbie’s also been deeply involved in Munzee as well! For those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know him, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Munzee on!

Flat Objects: The Future of Flat Types!

Don’t get us wrong — we love all 4 of our Flat Friends! But not all of our staff members are comfortable with being flattened. To allow for expansion of the Flat type, we’ve come up with Flat Objects! Think of them as the Munzee version of totems (à la Inception) where the Flat Object is something seemingly ordinary but is near and dear to each staff members’ hearts.

The first Flat Object is brought to you by Dylan, our indispensable Creative Director! If you’ve been a Munzee player for a while now, you’ve most likely met him, or at least heard of him… but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know the man, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Dylan’s Flat Object is a throwback to simpler times, and tube TV tech! Say hello to the Flat DHS, stylized after VHS Tapes from the 80s and 90s. Dylan has a nose for nostalgia, so these tapes (and the badges associated with them) will give you an insight to some of his favorite flicks. Read on to learn more!

Gallop away with Flat Hammock!

The Flat Friends are about to make a new pal! Flat Rob, Flat Matt, and Flat Lou will have to watch their gameplay, because the ban hammer is knocking- welcome the all new Flat Hammock!

This new game piece is based on the one-man wrecking crew Daniel Hammock, who has been running Munzee Support for 5 years. No one at MHQ can think of a time when they’ve actually called him Daniel, or Danny as his family calls him. He’s always affectionately been known as Hammock. Although he started off as a player, in Hammock’s own words, his “dream came true” when he was given “the opportunity of a lifetime” to work for Munzee. Even before officially joining MHQ, Hammock always took it upon himself to help out the Munzee community with any and all issues that would arise. He is best known within the community for swinging the ban hammer, punishing all those who break the code of conduct. To those who know him well he’s a fluffy unicorn of a guy who is very kind and giving. In his free time he enjoys taking his family out for crazy Youtube adventures for the Munzee Monthly Giveaway and giving away prizes each month for players to enjoy. He’s also an avid fan of unicorns, if the Flat Hammock design didn’t make that very apparent.

The first Flat Hammock has been released as a permanent special in Gettysburg, PA. Players will normally be able to purchase their own Flat Hammocks in the Freeze Tag Online Store for $4. In celebration of our new Flat Friend though all Flat Munzees will be discounted! Remember that Flat Friends are not always on sale, so stock up while you can!

The Flat Friends Sale will last until Friday at 15:00 MHQ:

  • Hammock: $3.75- originally $4
  • Rob: $3.75- originally $4
  • Louise: $4 (with $0.25 still going to charity)- originally $4.25
  • Matt: $4.75- originally $5

Players with a Premium Membership will also receive one free Flat Hammock as well.

Like the other Flat Friends, Flat Hammock has a unique release schedule. Hammock may love working for Munzee, but he keeps busy with a variety of other jobs as well. Like other Flats he will choose when Flat Hammocks are available on the map, which will be during his working hours, major event seasons and more. Please note that all scheduled times are based on MHQ time and are subject to change. Since we’re in the middle of Halloween events though, all Flat Friends are on the map until the end of the month and Flat Hammock will join in the fun too!

Here is the general breakdown of Flat Hammocks:

Points:

Deploy – 19 Points
Cap/CapOn – Split 80 points with a minimum of 10 points.

Proximity: 

Flat Hammocks’ proximity is not affected by other munzees except other Flats. Flat Hammocks must be 50ft from other players’ deploys and 150ft from your own deploys.

You’ll also be able to earn a variety of badges for capturing and deploying Flat Hammocks.

Deploy Badges:

Capture Badges:

Don’t forget about DOUBLE POINT FLAT FRIENDS WEEKEND! On Friday we challenged our players to attend events and capture event pins, and they successfully completed the challenge! There will be double points on all Flat Friends captures and deploys beginning October 26 at 00:01 until October 28 at 23:59. That’s MH-BOO Bash weekend too, so if you’re looking for somewhere to deploy why not check out McKinney, TX! The calendar is also full of events all month long!

Thank you all for your support of the Support Man himself. Our Flat Friends line of munzees would not be possible without the enthusiasm of our players. Of course a huge THANK YOU to Hammock for his dedication to this game. So beware the ban hammer, hug Hammock when you meet him and Munzee On!

Munzee’s Monthly Giveaway Video Contest!

You may know Daniel Hammock as “hksfarm,” “Support,” or “The Ban Hammer” of Munzee, but did you know he’s quite the Youtube video connoisseur?

Hksfarm hosts the “Munzee’s Monthly Giveaway” video contest where players around the world submit Munzee-themed videos for a chance to win prizes. If you haven’t already you should join his Facebook group and join in on the fun!

The rules are simple:

  • hksfarm posts the theme for month in the “Munzee’s Monthly Giveaway” Facebook group.
  • Players film and edit a Munzee video relating to that theme and upload it to Youtube.
  • Once it’s uploaded, players share it in the Facebook group and their name will be added into the prize drawing.
  • On the last day of the month, submissions will be final and hksfarm will draw a name from those that submitted a video. 

In addition for a chance to win prizes, players will also earn a sweet Unicorn badge for participating and the winner will receive the coveted Golden Unicorn badge! To qualify for the badge and giveaway, videos MUST be on YouTube.com and link posted in a separate post, also post your username. No skill or expensive camera equipment are needed because the final drawing is random. 

This month’s challenge is to share a video of a deployed munzee in the dark with the moon in the footage, so get ready to adventure through the night!
