Surprise! A NEW Game Piece for A NEW Kind of Bash!

We may have had to cancel our annual MHQ Bash in Texas this year, but we’re still celebrating the only way we know how: BIG! We wanted to create something special to celebrate a worldwide virtual gathering in a new way, so we’re excited to announce the release of the Universal Munzee!

Like a combination between Social and Personal Munzees, the Universal will allow you to interact with your fellow players like never before. You can find out more about the product below, but first a little background!

Personable Personals

We LOVE events, AND WE LOVE Personal Tags! The two seem to go hand in hand. Personals come in so many colorful designs to collect, and it gives players something to talk about: you can learn a lot about your fellow players by the tags they’ve collected. We even have a special badge line highlighting this phenomenon!

That aspect to the game is definitely something we miss this year, and while players have used their creativity to host events that allow their attendees to still have fun while keeping a safe distance from each other, Personal Tags, unfortunately, do require you to be in close proximity of wherever they’re deployed. Enter the Universal Munzee!

Universally United 

Featuring the logo for this year’s theme, “Bash from the Past!“, it has the best of both Social and Personal Munzee functionality as other players can capture it from anywhere in the world AND activity on it will earn you points. However, as this makes it incredibly valuable, we are limiting it to 1 per player. You can find this limited edition Universal HERE!

This Bash Universal is a limited release item only available through October 1 at 10:00 MHQ.

A Universal has the same point structure as a regular Personal:

  • Capture: mystery random points 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45
  • CapOn: sum of 50 between player capture and residual
    • Example: player capture = 30, owner residual = 20. Total = 50
  • Deploy: 100 points (only deploy it once with no proximity or expiration!)

For now, you can find your Universal in the My Social Munzees section of the app, or the corresponding page on the website. For more information, check out the Help Guide article.

To share your Universal Munzee QR code for others to capture, go to the Social Munzees list in your in-app profile and slide the entry to the left to reveal the [Show QR Code] button. You can take a screenshot of the code on your device, then send to others! Or you can always access and download the QR code from the website as well.

Bash From The Past!

We’ll have more information regarding this year’s celebration next week, but prepare for a trot down memory lane! MHQ Bash has become a staple over the last 6 years, so we thought what better way to celebrate 2020 than by looking back at years that were maybe a bit more stable!

The Universal is just the first announcement in regards to our Bash From The Past. Please indicate your intentions to participate in our global Bash on the Event Calendar. More information will be shared Monday about our plans for this annual celebration that we’re taking global this year!

Munzee on!

MHQ Bash Cancelled for 2020

We regret to announce that we have made the difficult decision to cancel our annual MHQ Bash in McKinney at the end of September. We think this is in the best interest of our worldwide community. We are discussing some options that could see a worldwide celebration in place of the Texas based Bash but don’t have details at this time. Thanks for understanding and we hope to see you next year.

Munzee On!

MedZEEval Times Recap! Looking Back at MHQ Bash 2019

It’s officially been 2 weeks since players joined us for the start of MedZEEval Times weekend, and we’re still basking in the social success of MHQ Bash  6! Whether you’re already ready to take a trip down memory lane for this medieval-themed weekend, or you want to check out the fun we had in North Texas, this Bash recap is a wonderful way to showcase some Munzee memories!

If these pictures are making you feel left out because you weren’t able to join us this year, fear not! We announced at the end of Bash that next year’s MHQ Bash 7 will take place from Sept 25-27, 2020! That means it’s time to mark your calendars for some unforgettable future fun!

MHQ Bash Registration

Things started off on September 27 as we opened the doors to players for MHQ Bash Registration on Friday evening. Our first event of the weekend saw players meet up, check in, pick up purchases, shop our pop-up store, receive MHQ office tours, and earn prizes! The IRL Prize Wheel was present, with players earning a spin (for a maximum of 3 spins per player) for every 4 food items or 1 jar of peanut butter they brought as a part of our joint donation to the North Texas Food Bank.

Players were welcome to join us at all events for free with the Court Jester package, though there was the option to pre-order the King’s Court package. Players who purchased this package were able to pick up the following items:

  • Name Tag and Lanyard
  • Clan War Bag
  • T-Shirt
  • 2 Blast Caps
  • Munzee Magnet and Virtual Magnet
  • Special Edition Munzee Foam Sword commemorative item
  • A new in-game item that attendees will be the first to receive once released

While plenty of Texans joined us at MHQ for the festivities, we were thrilled to have players travel in from all parts of the country and world to celebrate Munzee with the international Freeze Tag Team. We concluded the night by drawing names for some additional IRL Prize Wheel spins, which saw the addition of two lucky players winning tickets to join us at Medieval Times in Dallas the following evening for dinner and a show, as well as a variety of other prizes being handed out. Players also had the opportunity to participate in an Eventzee photo scavenger hunt.

Knight’s Armor Eventzee Fun

Eventzee was in the spotlight on Saturday morning as players joined us in the Village at Fairview for an Eventzee hunt that saw players scouting out staff members holding various parts of the Knight’s Armor, as well as Clan Weapons, around the North Texas shopping center. Rob, Tamara, Craig, Mari, Guilherme, and Daniel spread out with pieces of the Knight’s Armor, while Louise, Mick, and Matt were stationed with Clan Weapons. Eventzee players traveled throughout the shopping center to snap photos for a fun morning of exercise and socialization that was followed by WallaBee‘s WallaBash afternoon celebration. And that was only half the fun for many Munzee players on day 2 of Bash!

A Night with Knights

In addition to the free Court Jester package and priced King’s Court package, players were also able to pre-purchase the package add-on of A Night with Knights. This granted them full access to joining us at Medieval Times in Dallas for a medieval times themed dinner and show that featured horse riding, jousting, and medieval immersion fun. A four-course meal was also included with purchase, which wrapped up day 2 of MedZEEval Times weekend.

Storm the Castle Eventzee Fun

Our final event took place on Sunday morning as we hosted our second Eventzee hunt of the weekend with our Storm the Castle fun run. Players enjoyed a sunny day in Russel Creek Park in Plano as they traveled around to the Eventzee Battlements (Tamara), WallaBee Wall (Robbie), Munzee Castle (Daniel), and Freeze Tag Fortress (Mari) for some photo hunt fun. Thankfully the Texas heat was a bit more forgiving, and players and staff alike were able to close out a successful weekend with sunshine, exercise, and smiles.

In addition to the scheduled events, players had the opportunity to meet up, socialize, and explore the area to earn an enormous amount of points. Thanks to the placement of special gardens, such as the Pink Peony, players from around the world were able to join in on the fun and earn CapOn points, as well as shop our worldwide weekend sale and enjoy the Knight’s Armor specials on the map!

Thanks again to everyone who came out to join in on the fun! We can’t wait to see what fun 2020 has in store for Bash in addition to all the events and fun along the way. In the meantime, players can get in on some scary fun socialization by enjoying the Halloween Event Packages!

Munzee on!

A Special Gift for Munzee Players!

Starting tomorrow at 10:00 MHQ time, players who captured a She Said YES bouncing munzee special in August will be awarded one munzee in a special Pink Peony virtual garden! At the same time, there will be an opportunity to purchase a limited quantity of open Peony garden spots from the Freeze Tag Online Store. A portion of these sales will also go to the North Texas Food Bank! Read on to learn more!

A Special Gift

It all started with a special garden! To help Rob pull off one more surprise for Louise, player denali0407 put her garden creating skills to great use to craft a special Pink Peony garden near the Sunday morning MHQ Bash 6 event. The idea behind the garden was to deploy one pin for every person who captured the She Said YES specials in order to surprise Louise with her favorite flower. With over 3,000 captures of the specials, the garden design needed to be quite large, accounting for many of the special Pink Peony colored pins. The garden pins will be awarded tomorrow beginning at 10:00 MHQ time to all players who capped at least one of the She Said YES specials. With 3000+ to be deployed it may take a bit of time for you to see it in your deployed list if you earned one.

There are also a limited quantity of around 500 Pink Peony garden pins available for purchase at 10:00 MHQ tomorrow! You’ll have to act fast to be part of this opportunity, so be sure to keep this link handy for when it goes live! Each spot in the garden will cost $2, with no player purchasing limit. Similar to an Emerald Virtual Garden, you can purchase the pins in the Freeze Tag store and it will automatically be deployed in this garden.

We’ll be donating $500 from the Pink Peony garden pin proceeds to the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB)! As Bash attendees are aware, we’re using this year’s event as an opportunity to join forces with players to give back to the NTFB. Bash attendees will earn 1 spin on the IRL Prize Wheel for every 4 “requested” canned food items they bring to Bash Registration, and now more players will have the chance to give to a good cause. So even if you can’t make it to Texas for MHQ Bash, you can still help families in need by purchasing a Pink Peony garden pin!

It’s sure to be a jam-packed weekend of fun and more surprises for players worldwide!

Munzee on!

Hey everybody, as 2018 comes to a close we have some announcements for MHQ hosted events in 2019, including MHQ Bash 6, Munzee Madness 8 and more.

These events will include a variety of features to make them bigger than ever before and we want to celebrate with as many of our players as possible. Please keep in mind that there are still many details to line out for these events, but we wanted to give everyone adequate time to plan if they’ll be joining us. 

Munzee Madness 8- March 2019

We will be hosting a dinner on March 9, 2019 in conjunction with Munzee Madness 8, an annual weekend of player hosted events in California each Spring. Although this gathering is separate from the planned events of Munzee Madness, we hope that Munzee Madness players will join the Freeze Tag team members for an evening of food, festivities and fun.

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.
