ZeeQRew and QRew Players Need To Wake Up…

SleepZees that is!

Starting today, all ZeeQRew and QRew members will see SleepZees during QRewzdays! SleepZees will appear on select Virtual Colors and Flat Friends that haven’t been capped in a year or more. SleepZees are also blastable, which should help with those in hard-to-reach areas.

Clan Wars players will be interested to know that SleepZee captures will also count towards the QRewzee capture requirements!

Not sure how to qualify for ZeeQRew or QRew? Check out our Help Guide article!

We hope you enjoy re-capping some dormant virtual munzees near you!

Munzee on!

2019 In Review

Last year was definitely a year of change as we released an update that was a long time coming — Munzee 4.0! We appreciate all of the players, old and new, who have continued to support the game. It is for you that we are constantly dreaming up ways to make the game more dynamic and the app more friendly! On that note, we’d like to celebrate some key points that the Munzee Community has achieved last year:

Recruiting New Players

As a worldwide geo-location based game, our aim is to continue to expand and grow the community. After all, it’s more fun playing with more people!

  • 65,495 new players started playing Munzee in 2019
    • 83% more than 2018

Recycling Program Revamp

In April we announced QRew, a junior version of the ZeeQRew program, which allowed players to replace missing or damaged Munzees once they met certain requirements. Along with this update we also launched the new QRewzee Munzee, which gave the added incentive of receiving more points after replacing and capturing newly replaced Munzees. This seemed to have a tremendous effect on the number of Munzees that have been replaced over the past year.

  • 95,131 Munzees replaced in 2019
    • 200% more than 2018

New Map Layers

In June we split Physical and Virtual Munzees to sit on their own map layer, along with Flat, Temporary and Event Munzees each being on their own layers as well. This essentially doubled the amount of space available for new Munzees to be deployed, which in turn provided more Munzees to be captured.

  • 80,034,191 Munzees captured in 2019
  • 5,419,442 Munzee deployed in 2019
    • 19% more than 2018

Munzee Events

In September we streamlined our Event Process by making Event Packages available in the Freeze Tag Store. Since event hosts usually purchase the same items for their events every time, we developed different packages based on commonly ordered items. Of course, any additional requests are still handled by our trusty Global Events Director Louise! Purchasing these new event packages sends event hosts all the information they need in an automatic e-mail. We also updated our Help Guide to help walk event hosts through the process!

  • 517 events held worldwide in 2019
  • 12,648 attendees total in 2019

Clan Wars Revamp

In October we released a major update to the clan wars system, allowing teams of less than 10 players to participate and the ability for clans to recruit throughout the month. Along with this update we added a brand new Clan Wars section in the app, which allows players to create/join clans and track their progress on challenge requirements for each battle. We’re ecstatic to see that this has encouraged more players to join in on Clan Wars!

  • 9% more players participating in Clan Wars than 2018
  • 25% more clans reached Level 1 or higher in 2019 after the update
  • 52% more clans reached Level 3 in 2019 after the update

Once again, thank you for everything you have done to help grow the game and support other members of the community!

Munzee on!

Play YOUR Way! Map Split and Leaderboard UPDATES!

Did you catch our latest videocast? You can listen to Rob and Matt discussing the new updates HERE! 

Today we have a very special announcement! The Virtual and Physical Maps have officially been separated into two distinct playing areas. The proximity limits for virtual munzees will no longer affect physical deploys, and vice versa. This exciting over-the-air update is live as of the publication of this blog!

Play Your Way

Previously if a virtual was deployed in an area, a physical could not be deployed within its proximity, and vice versa. Now players have the opportunity to expand deploys in their area with even more physical and virtual munzees! Munzee has always been about letting everyone “Play Your Way,” and this latest update will allow players to do just that! You can now choose to focus solely on physical or virtual gameplay, or continue doing both with ease. Customize the filters in your app with easy adjustments to display physical and virtual Munzees however you like!

We have also added a small update to the online maps to allow players to toggle between physical and virtual munzees as well. This will be handy for players deploying virtuals from the online map. Additionally, there is a slight change to the Destination line of munzees. This map split will uncouple proximity checks between Virtual Resorts and Timeshares. Resort proximity will only be blocked by other Resorts (or other virtual types), and Timeshares will only be blocked by other Timeshares, Motels, and Hotels (or other physical types).

To help you fill in all the new spots for deploying, we’re hosting a “Play Your Way Summer Sale” in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting at 15:00 MHQ today! There will be deals on a number of physical and virtual products. It’s also the first day of summer/winter, so blocks of Seasonal Munzees will be on sale, and they have also been added to the PinPoints store! Check out the entire “Play Your Way!” collection HERE when the sale goes live!

Follow The Leader(boards)!

We have another big update alongside the map split— the leaderboards! We now have a variety of different leaderboard options to showcase the skills of different gameplay styles. This new update includes the creation of Virtual and Physical leaderboards, as well as daily, monthly*, and yearly leaderboards for each type. You can see a breakdown of each leaderboard type below, but all leaderboards are accessible from both the web** and mobile app.

On the mobile app, simply toggle the various dropdown menus to see the desired leaderboard. You can choose between different leaderboards for Munzee Type, Points Earned, and Time Period. These new leaderboards are only visible in the latest version of the V4 Munzee app via an over-the-air update. (If you haven’t received it yet, try restarting the Munzee app!)

On the web, simply choose the leaderboard you would like to see from the dropdown menu on the upper righthand side. Once you choose the leaderboard you want to view, you can also toggle “This Month” to show “Last Month” and “This Year” to show “Overall” leaderboards.

To see the Munzee web leaderboards, go HERE.

Split Leaderboards by Munzee Type:

  • All Types
  • Physicals Only
  • Virtuals Only

Split Leaderboards by Points Type:

  • Total Score
  • Captures Only
  • Deploys Only
  • CapOns Only

Split Leaderboards by Time Period:

  • Today (Premium Members Only)
  • Yesterday
  • This Month
  • Last Month
  • This Year
  • Overall

Reap The Rewards!

With new leaderboards also come all new leaderboard badges! With so many different leaderboard types, we plan on continuing to release exclusive badges as the year goes on. To start off, we have new leaderboard badges for the following:

Monthly Leaderboard Badges:

Virtual Daily Leaderboard Badges:

Physical Daily Leaderboard Badges:

The next line of badges, coming soon, will be for Daily Capture, Deploy, and CapOn leaderboards! There are hundreds of different badge possibilities, so always stay tuned for more information!

We hope you all take this opportunity to grow the game to new heights, both around the world and in your own backyard. The time is now to Play Your Way, so get out there and GO!

Munzee on!

*Please note that though “Last Month” leaderboard will show upon launch, players will not earn badges for it until the end of the month.
**Access to the current daily leaderboard is only available to Premium players, so that leaderboard is only accessible via the app. Players can still see yesterday’s daily leaderboard on the web.

The Munzee Munch October Special!

pacghost_128 copy pacpellet_128In celebration of the popular 8-bit video game Pac-Man™ and in connection with the North American holiday of Halloween, Munzee is proud to announce the Munzee Munch specials! Starting Monday, October 13th Munzee Power Pellets will show up across the map, where they will bounce every six hours if not captured. Similar to the arcade game, once players “munch” on the the power pellet three ghastly Ghostzees will appear within a one mile radius of the capped pellet.  Each Ghostzee will haunt a different greenie (regular munzee), but be warned they could possibly haunt your own Munzees. Unfortunately you can’t cap your own Munzees though, so a different ghost hunter will have to cap those.  The Ghostzees won’t be there for long and you’ll only have two hours to cap all three. You’ll also be racing any other nearby Munzee players because once the pellet has been munched, anyone can cap the three Ghostzees that appear.

There will be 1,980 power pellets bouncing across the world (viewable on a special map) until November 1st at 00:01 CST (MHQ time). You will get 50 points for munching a power pellet as well as a special icon. Cap on points are normal for the owner of the power pellet munzee. Once a Ghostzee is captured players will get 34 points split between owner and capper (10 point minimum for each) and a ghost icon. A greenie has the chance to be a Ghostzee more than once, but power pellets will only land on a munzee once and when captured that munzee cannot become a pellet again.  *For clan players all power pellet and ghostzee caps will be 2x for clan points!*

You will also get a Munzee Munch badge if you capture a Ghostzee, whether you munched the pellet or not, but you do not need to cap all three for the badge. PacMunchBadge_720
