NFC Munzee Conversion

As the launch of Munzee 4.0 gets closer, we have an update regarding the removal of the Near Field Communication (NFC) Munzee type.  All undeployed NFC Munzees are currently being archived and all deployed NFC Munzees are being converted to white Virtual Munzees.

Please note that players have not had the ability to deploy NFC Munzees for many years, but this next step will remove the type entirely from the map. Although NFC Munzees were technically a physical type, the GPS coordinates attached to the NFCs will be where the newly converted Virtuals are located. Additionally, this also includes a substantial point update from what NFCs used to be worth. For those that have captured NFC Munzees in the past your capture count will remain in tact and you’ll still be able to see the special icon under the achievements tab.
UPDATE: This newly deployed virtual is available to be captured by anyone who previously capped the NFC. It is a brand new deploy.

Deploy Points:
5 —> 55

Capture/CapOn Points:
5 —> 70 points split with a minimum of 10
3 —>     *             *              *              *

We appreciate the player support for this type, but unfortunately NFC technology is not easily accessible for developers on all platforms so it’s time to move on. We promise the release of 4.0 is very close, so once again thank you for your patience during all of these changes. Remember this is just the start, we have some really big plans ahead!

Munzee on!

Virtual Point Update and Conversion! New Virtual Colors!

In the next phase of point updates, we have some big news regarding Virtual Munzees. As you may have noticed there has been a change to the map! Moving forward all MVM, Mystery Virtuals, and regular Virtuals have all been converted into a single new “Virtual” type. With this conversion comes a point update as well!

All Virtual types will now be worth the following moving forward, not retroactive:

  • Deploy = 55 points
  • Capture = between 10 & 70 points
  • CapOn = split points with Capture  (Ex: if 30 for Cap, 40 for CapOn, etc.)

Our hope is that the conversion of Virtuals will make it easier for new players as they begin their Munzee adventure. Although the point increase from Mystery Virtuals and MVMs to the new type is not huge, the jump for the original virtual points is! All of the oldest virtual gardens in the world just received a MAJOR upgrade! Please note that alongside the Virtual conversion, the Virtual Quiz Munzee is no more. All Virtual Quizzes have been converted to the new type as well.

COLOR CREDITS

Alongside the Virtual Conversion we have also expanded the number of Virtual Color Credits! Now you can bring an entirely new level of detail into your Virtual Gardens with more than 60 colors of any shade you might need! Bring out those baby blues with Cornflower! Follow the yellow brick road with Goldenrod! Get a little cheesy with Macaroni and Cheese! If you can dream it, we can color it!

Remember, Virtual Color Credits can be purchased in the Freeze Tag Online Store for $0.50 and that credit can then be used in-app or online to choose from the wide variety of colors. Did you know there are several Facebook groups dedicated to building Virtual Gardens all over the world? Kjasdad even started a master spreadsheet to track all the Gardens!


We know change can be a bit scary, but we hope you can all embrace the conversion and understand the larger end goal of making this game we love more comprehensive to new players. Thank you all for your support throughout the 4.0 launch process. Good luck and go build those Gardens!

Munzee on!

 

****Please note: due to this point increase and conversion there has been a slight increase in the price of the new Virtual type. Previously MVMs were $4.50, but that price has now increased to $5.

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!

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.

Introducing Great Britain Iconic Location Munzees and Unique Attractions Places Munzee!

We’re excited to announce a new line of munzees based on Great British iconic locations! Just like World Heritage Locations, and Florida and California Historic Munzees, Great Britain Iconic Locations have been deployed at culturally significant locations throughout England with additional countries to follow over time!

Similar to the other tourism munzees, the GB Iconic Location Munzees are deployed by an MHQ account based on a database of historically and culturally significant attractions. This time we also had some help from Munzee player pilsleyguy who was gracious enough to gather notable locations! Thanks for all your hard work! These all new munzees will be deployed at a variety of areas like the Robin Hood Statue in Nottingham, Sir Steve Redgrave Statue in Marlow, and The Martian in Woking. Players will find these deployed across each of the counties in England.

When captured, players will earn 50 points. These virtual munzees are not blastable, so you’ll have to get out and learn a bit more about these iconic locations! If you notice any that are deployed in the wrong location please contact support with the name/URL of the munzee and correct information.

As we have stated before, we plan to continue to expand this line of munzees into more states and different countries as well in the coming months.

We’re also excited to announce a new Places Munzee for Unique Attractions. We want to see these at the weirdest roadside wonders the world has to offer! Get yours in the Freeze Tag Store TODAY at https://store.freezetag.com/products/places-munzees!

These new Places Munzees can be deployed at unique attractions across the world. These can include tourist traps like the World’s Largest Ball Of Twine in Kansas, or the Mirror Ball in England. Since these are a bit more obscure than other Places Munzees they will need to be searchable on Google Maps and may take a bit longer than usual to approve. 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.

Places Munzees have a 1,000 ft capture radius, can be captured daily, but cannot be captured via Blast Captures. Please note that although these may be deployed at large structures or unique monuments, many notable spots may already be Historical Location Places or Museum Places.

Unique Attractions Places Munzees are available for $10, and you can purchase one of each type per account every 30 days. Remember that Places Munzees have recently had a point increase and you can purchase other types of Places as well!

Good luck on your iconic adventures! Munzee on!
