Social DistanZEEing Bonuses

If you haven’t marked [I’m Going!]  on our Social DistanZEEing Global Munzee Event, fix that ASAP! We’ll be awarding goodies periodically, so you don’t want to miss out! Today at 10:00 MHQ, attendees were awarded 1 physical magnet and 1 virtual magnet, which will definitely be useful in attracting the NEW Rainbow Trail MOBs or testing out the NEW Elemental Magnetization feature!

To make magnets even more useful, we’ve increased their strength so that they can now attract up to 5 bouncers! This boost will be active from 12:00 MHQ today until 23:59 MHQ on March 22nd! That’s the same end time as the 2x Mystery Days bonus, so be sure to take advantage of it!

Lastly, if you are late to our Couch Potato Party, you can read more about it in yesterday’s blog post HERE!

We hope you’ll join in on the fun!

Munzee on!

Jewel Magnetization + New Packs in the In-App Store!

As we head into the last few days of February, we wanted to cap off this jewel-focused month with some exciting news!

Jewel Magnetization

One of the ideas we bounced around in the recent gameplay survey was whether you would like to be able to magnetize more munzee types. The majority was in favor of this idea, and it made sense to us, too — why not give Magnets more bang for their buck? Starting from today via an OTA update you can now use Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets on Jewel Munzees!

The specific Jewel you magnetize will still only bring Bouncers that land on that type of Munzee though, so you’ll be able to have a bit more control over what you’re attracting. This should help Myth chasers encounter some of the rarer myths out there, like Chimeras and Goblins.

You can easily magnetize jewels within the app, but you can also magnetize on the web as well. To learn more about Magnetizing munzees visit the Munzee Help Guide.

 

New Packs Available Via The In-App Store!

To complement this new feature, we’ve also added new multi-packs to our In-App Store! Now you can use Zeds to buy the following products in packs of 10:

  • Physical Magnets
  • Virtual Magnets
  • Mini Blast Captures
  • Blast Captures
  • MEGA Blast Captures

We hope these changes add value to items you probably already own, and make gameplay more streamlined! We’ve also heard you would be interested in purchasing Zeds online. We’ve added them to the store now, for a LIMITED time! So stock up while you can for access to the new items in the In-App Store!

There are a few more surprises to come which we think you’ll enjoy, so keep an eye out for our announcements!

Munzee On!

Announcing the Grand Opening of Our In-App Store!

Have you ever gone to a Munzee event and realized you didn’t have enough blasts? Have you ever been out in the field for Clan Wars, desperately trying to get enough points to meet level requirements without specific credits? Well, the latest  update to the Munzee app will address all of these issues and more!

Please note that you can only get access to the new In-App Store by updating your app in the Apple App or Google Play Stores. This is not an Over-The-Air (OTA) Update, it may take longer for the update to be available. If you don’t see it in the app stores yet, check back later!

NEW In-App Store

Why have an In-App store? Convenience for you! Now you can purchase select Munzee products at your convenience, just by navigating to the In-App Store! No more booting up your computer every time you want to buy something, or dealing with the less friendly mobile version of store.freezetag.com. The In-App Store is linked  to your Apple or Google Play accounts for an even easier purchasing experience! 

You can access the new in-app store from a number of different areas in the app including the top of the map screen, the side menu, and when using certain items. For example if you go to activate a Magnet and you’re all out of stock, you can purchase one right then and there!

For the introduction of an in-app store we decided to keep things simple by paring down the offerings. You’ll see the basics of Munzee gameplay pieces in stock, with a few new products sprinkled in as well. 

NEW In-App Currency

The new In-App Store also comes with a new in-app currency. Zeds can be used to purchase in-game items, like Blast Captures, Magnets, Boosters and more! You can purchase Zeds in the In-App Store in a variety of different bundles, and you’ll also get some Zeds with your (one-time) Virtual StarterPak purchase. Starting tomorrow, you’ll also now be able to earn Zeds from Prize Wheels, and Pimedus captures as well!

 

NEW Products!

What are these “new products”? The first for your consideration is the Virtual StarterPak! Like the Physical StarterPak, this Virtual StarterPak will contain a good variety of virtual munzees at a discount, perfect for introducing any new players to the virtual game. Existing players can also purchase this pack! It is available for a one-time purchase per player. 

Next on the list are the 2 new Blast Capture types — the MEGA and Mini Blast! These additional blast sizes will allow you greater control over how many munzees you capture. The MEGA Blast can capture up to 500 virtual munzees within a 1-mile radius, while the Mini Blast can capture up to 50 virtual munzees within a 1-mile radius. These new types are currently only available through the In-App Store though, so be sure to check it out! 

Lastly, we bring you a few not-totally-new things, but things that were previously unavailable for purchase: Physical Capture Boosters and Virtual Deploy Boosters, both of which will be available in Special Packs as you’ll see in the list below.

Now, we’ll leave you to peruse the list of products! Is there anything else you’d like to see in the store?

Introducing the Treehouse and Magnet Burnout!

There are about to be a lot of happy Player Owned Bouncer owners, because our latest map addition is targeted to increase the number of caps on POBs while decreasing the clutter on the map. More points and less mess— what is this awesome new munzee called?! Please welcome the Treehouse Munzee to the map!

Treehouse Munzee

The Treehouse Munzee is a physical Destination Munzee that allows up to 6 POBs to land on it. This all new munzee fits into the Destination line of munzee types, but it also contains the ability to be captured once per player per 24 hour MHQ day just like Places Munzees! That’s right, the Treehouse Munzee means plenty of capping opportunities.

Does this extra special munzee sound familiar at all to some of you? Players who purchased the MHQ Bash King’s Court package have been awarded a Treehouse Munzee credit, which was included in the package as a new in-game item. The rest of you will have to wait a short time to pick up your Treehouse Munzees! They will be made available for purchase to the public sometime in the next week, but you can read about them now! Players will also be able to cap Treehouses deployed by King’s Court purchasers in the meantime, so there is still fun to be had!

Points:

  • Deploy: 100 points
  • Cap: 10 points + points for whatever POBs are in the Treehouse at the time of capture.
  • CapOn: 25 points

The deploy circle for Treehouses will be 1,000 feet (304.8 m) from the nearest Treehouse, all other normal 50/150 feet proximity rules apply. To access the Treehouse Munzee, turn on your Physical filter and find it under “Destinations”. It’s also included in the Premium filters under “All Mythologicals” and “All Expiring Specials”.

Please note the following special information about the Treehouse Munzee:

  • The Treehouse Icon will change to show the number of POBs hanging out. Players will see the base icon for 0, but then a 1-6 as more bouncers stop by.
  • This munzee can be capped once daily regardless of the number of POBs hanging out. New POB landings do NOT refresh the capture setting.
  • A Treehouse will attract up to 6 POBs over time, but you can use a physical Munzee Magnet to draw a total of 6 POBs much quicker.
  • Only physical Myths and Variants will land on a Treehouse (No MOBs, TOBs, Pouch Creatures, Fancy Flats, or virtual Myths).
  • The Regular POB timer is still in effect. If a POB times out, it leaves the Treehouse and leaves an open spot for others to join.

Why use a Treehouse? This extra special munzee has the following awesome advantages:

  • Quick and high points
  • Easy access to multiple POB caps at once
  • The ability to share the love with other POB owners
  • Achieve POB clan requirements quicker

The Treehouse Munzee does not have a badge line at this time, but it will count toward the overall Destination capture line the first time you cap it. That means daily caps will not count toward badges, only the first time you cap it.

For more information about the Treehouse Munzee, how to deploy it, and exactly what types will land on it, check out our Help Guide article!

Magnet Burnout

In addition to the Treehouse Munzee, we’re excited to announce that we have removed the purchase limit on both physical and virtual Munzee Magnets! Now players can buy as many Munzee Magnets and Virtual Magnets as they like from the Freeze Tag Online Store. 

However, with the new update Greenies and Virtuals will only be able to be magnetized 3 times a day. After that, the munzee will be “burned out” and unable to be magnetized until the next MHQ day. This “burn out” is 3x per player, per MHQ day. In addition, we’ve made a small improvement to save space, so now when you magnetize a munzee, the magnet button will disappear until the magnet expires. That way there is more room to display the bouncer information!

The Magnet Burnout was created to encourage players to keep moving and not just magnetize the same munzee over and over again. There will be a timer on the burned out munzee to show how long you have to wait until it can be magnetized again!

Are you ready to have some fun with this awesome new game addition? Don’t forget to pick up the awesome new Treehouse munzee when it releases! For now watch the map and see if one gets deployed somewhere near you! You can also stock up on some Magnets and catch those bouncers!

Munzee on!

*Please note that when Treehouses go on sale to the public players will be limited to one purchase every 14 days.

Rob celebrates the Treehouse Munzee launch from the Mall of America in Minnesota, where he is attending player events.

As with the other AlternaMyths these Mythological Munzees are deployed on behalf of our HQ staff’s accounts, thus super rare. You’ll get 200 points for capping the Chimera. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of the Chimera’s many-headed cousin, the Hydra.

This may be the AlternaMyth to the Hydra Mythological Munzee, but the Chimera is so much more! This creature is made up of a lion, a goat, a snake and a dragon, with the wing of a Pegasus and the tail of a scorpion for good measure. As such Chimeras are attracted to a wide variety of landing pads.

Chimeras bounce on greenies, MVMs, elementals, jewels and clan weapons:

  • Greenies
  • All Color MVMs
  • Shamrocks
  • Elementals
    • Fire
    • Ice

    • Topaz
    • Aquamarine
  • Clan Weapons
    • Mace
    • Longsword
    • Battle Axe
    • The Hammer
    • Crossbow (V)

Chimeras may land on an assortment of munzees, but you can take your traps a bit further by using either a physical or virtual Munzee Magnet!– Chimeras are attracted to both! You can grab Magnets in the Freeze Tag Online Store along with a variety of different Chimera capturing codes. In celebration of the final Classical AlternaMyth we’ve also released a Chimera decal sticker and a new Chimera Elemental Pack featuring physical Elemental Munzees.

This pack includes:

  • 2 Fire Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Earth Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Water Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Ice Mystery Munzees

This package is available for $7.50.

Capturing a Chimera will also count towards the Myth Collector badges so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those mixed up munzee maniacs.

Good luck on your journey and Munzee on!

As the AlternaMyth to the Cyclops Mythological Munzee the Ogre’s hunger for jewels is only overcome by his thirst for battle!  Ogres are attracted to greenies, physical and virtual Jewel Munzees, as well as physical and virtual Clan Weapon Munzees*.

  • Amethyst (V)
  • Sapphire (V)
  • Diamond
  • Ruby
  • Pink Diamond
  • Topaz
  • Aquamarine
  • Mace
  • Longsword
  • Battle Axe
  • The Hammer
  • Crossbow (V)

*Ogres are not currently attracted to Catapult or Boulder Munzees, but may be in the future. 

Ogres can be a bit tough to handle, but you might be able to trap one with a Munzee Magnet! You can also show your Ogre pride with a new decal sticker. You can find Magnets, decals stickers, Jewel Munzees and more in the online store! 

Capturing an Ogre will also count towards the Myth Collector badges so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those ferocious fighters.

Good luck on your journey and remember to Go Green!

Fall In Love With The Cherub AlternaMyth!

It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air! What better day than today to introduce you all to our new AlternaMyth friend: The Cherub! Watch out for that arrow, unless you’re looking for love that is!

As with the other AlternaMyths these Mythological Munzees are deployed on behalf of our HQ staff’s accounts, thus super rare. You’ll get 200 points for capping the Cherub. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of the Cherub’s earthbound cousin the Faun.

As the Faun’s cousin this cute cloud soarer is attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees, but Cherubs will also hover to all colors of Virtual Munzees, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured.

Cherubs are sure to be busy on Valentine’s Day this year, but luckily you can slow one down with a Virtual Munzee Magnet! You can add Virtual Magnets to any color of MVM and they will attract Cherub, Pegasus, and Fire Pegasus munzees.

Capturing a Cherub will also count towards the Myth Collector badges so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those friendly flyers.

As we welcome the new year, we’re also excited to welcome a new AlternaMyth- set the skies ablaze with the Fire Pegasus Mythological Munzee! As the first Classical AlternaMyth these winged creatures are sure to light the way for you in your Myth searches.

As with the other AlternaMyths these Mythological Munzees are deployed on behalf of our HQ staff’s accounts, thus super rare. You’ll get 200 points for capping The Fire Pegasus. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of a normal Pegasus.

This fiery flyer is just like the normal Pegasus and hovers to all colors of Virtual Munzees, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured. As the name may allude, the Fire Pegasus will also bounce to Fire Mystery Munzees.

Although this Myth’s blazing speed will make it a tough one to find, we’re excited to announce the release of the Virtual Magnet as well! Much like the regular Munzee Magnet the item will attract up to three Mythologicals for up to one hour. You can add Virtual Magnets to any color of MVM and they will attract Pegasus and Fire Pegasus munzees.

Like the Munzee Magnets, Virtual Magnets are $1/each with a limit of 10 every 10 days. Virtual Magnets are available NOW, and you can find them in the Munzee Online Store here. Be on the lookout for even more uses for the Virtual Magnet in the near future, too!

International “Thank You” Day Specials!

Rob realized writing individual “Thank You” notes to everyone wasn’t exactly feasible, so we decided to go in a different direction. In celebration of International Thank You Day, we’re proud to announce we’re celebrating in the best way possible: By sending out “Thank You” cards! Over the next few days you’ll be able to capture “Thank You” note specials from Louise, Rob and Matt.

“Thank You” cards from Louise, Matt and Rob!

The International Thank You Day specials will go live on the map at 00:01 Thursday January 11th and last through 23:59 on Sunday January 14th. There will be 1,000 of each of the icons (3,000 in total) bouncing on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. When you cap any of these icons, you will earn 18 points, and the owner of the host munzee will earn 11 points.

We know what you’re thinking: What good is a “Thank You” card if you can’t read what’s inside? Well when you capture one of the icons you’ll also earn the badge for that “Thank you” note and get to see what the cards says. Will you be able to capture all three?

Per usual these will also count toward the Special Hunter badge line, so be sure to cap as many as you can! You can capture these specials on your own munzees and they will all be attracted to Magnets.

Thank you once again to our awesome community of players! We couldn’t do all of this without you and we’re so thankful to have you as a part of our game. Now get out and Munzee on, because #TheTimeIsNow!

Similar to normal Yetis, this large footed fellow bounces to Greenies and Ice Mystery Munzees every 12 hours, but as a forest dweller he’s also attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees. You can make it one (large) step easier and use a Munzee Magnet as wellCapturing Sasquatch Yetis will count towards the Myth Collector badges too.

We also have Sasquatch Yeti (as well as all of the other Myths and AlternaMyths) decals in the Munzee Online Store.

Good luck chasing these furry forest friends!
