July Resolutions Are Here!

While you still have a few days left in June to put your iced coffee money in your savings account for June Resolutions, we’re already looking to the future for our July Resolutions badge! From eating healthy to traveling more, our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement. As summer heats up on the Northern Hemisphere, this month we challenge players to lose weight (if you need to for your health)!

Even Santa is working on his “summer bod”

Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. The monthly Capture Streak badges allow for the chance to work towards a different goal each month in order to bring about a year of positive growth and change.

Losing Weight for Health

While folks on the Southern Hemisphere might be bundling up, the Northern Hemisphere is well into bathing suit season. And for many, the rise in temperature is accompanied by a heightened dissatisfaction with one’s physical appearance. Weight loss, however, shouldn’t be something that is appearance based. It might sound cheesy, but if you’re asking yourself “do I have a summer body?” the answer is “do you have a body?” If you say “yes,” then you’re all ready to hit the beach!

While it’s crucial to accept your body as is, that doesn’t mean that you can neglect your health. If your weight is impacting your health, then it’s time to lose weight the right way in order to feel better and increase your longevity. Rather than gravitate towards a fad diet or “lose weight quick” scheme, the two main components of weight loss are diet and exercise. The number one reason why diets fail is because they are unsustainable. By changing your lifestyle choices permanently, you will never again have to grapple with the disappointments of “yo-yo dieting.” Just be sure to find a healthy meal plan that works best for YOU.

While counting calories can lead to unhealthy behaviors, it is beneficial to be aware of factors such what you eat, how much you eat, when you eat, and how often you eat. Keeping a food journal, or tracking your food intake on one of the many helpful dieting apps, can help you become more aware of what you put into your body so that you can make more informed dining choices.

When it comes to staying active, the playing field is unfortunately not even. However, if you have underlying medical issues that are prohibiting weight loss, you can still set daily goals for yourself. We are so proud of how many players have achieved monumental fitness accomplishments, especially after many have shared their stories of chronic physical disabilities and illnesses that they refuse to allow to hold them back. Remember, the only person you have to compete with when it comes to fitness is yourself. Focus on personal growth rather than comparing yourself to others, and remember that health is always the goal.

Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

June Resolutions Badge Details

Our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement through highlighting different monthly resolutions. This month we’re challenging players to save money for the June Resolutions badge.

Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. The monthly Capture Streak badges allow for the chance to work towards a different goal each month in order to bring about a year of positive growth and change.

Tips for Saving

While some are naturally skilled in the art of restraint, others need more motivation to hold themselves back from bleeding their wallets dry. However, no matter how careless you might be with your spending, it is entirely possible to reverse your financial situation by adhering to ways to save money. To maximize your long-term profits, take advantage of interest when moving around bank account assets. Take inventory of the items you have accumulated over the years, and rather than continue to add to the collection, consider what you can sell. There’s a good chance you can profit from scarcely used items in your possession.

Instead of purchasing items when the mood strikes, carefully plan your shopping endeavors. Collect coupons, sign up for rewards programs, and stock up during seasonal sales. Purchase items in their off-season, and plan ahead for holiday shopping. For example, it will be far more cost effective to purchase winter apparel at the end of the cold season and save it for the next year if you know you’ll be needing a new coat in the future. Be thrifty with your spending, and don’t leave important purchases or gifts for the last minute. By planning ahead, you can secure the most desirable prices rather than shell out extra cash for a last minute need.

Stick to your shopping list, and restrain from impulse purchases. Decide which nights you want to go out, and stick to a set budget when you do so or plan social outings around discount nights. Take care of the items that you do have, and invest in high quality, long-lasting items rather than disposable trendy apparel. Be conscious of how much money you spend on take out and eating away from home and how often you waste electricity. Investing in smart appliances is a great way to lower bills and help the environment.

No, you won’t be able to take your money to the grave. But with life being so unpredictable, you never know when some extra savings could be your saving grace. Additionally, by abstaining from giving in to momentary purchases and whims, you can save your hard-earned money for things that matter, like visiting a faraway friend or relative or doing something that you’ve dreamed of. Avoid hardship down the line and open the possibility for more opportunities by being a bit more reserved with your spending.

Munzee on!

May Resolutions Badge Details

How has 2019 been treating you so far? If it hasn’t been your year to shine, fear not, because there are still eight months left for positive growth and change! Our monthly Capture Streak Badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement, bringing us the resolution to eat healthy (January), make new friends (February), explore new hobbies (March), and get organized (April). Summer is fast approaching on the Northern Hemisphere, and our May Resolutions badge is to travel more!

Each month’s badge is dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Each month provides the opportunity to put your best foot forward, so if you’re new to the game or accidentally missed a day, there’s no time like the present to get started on your streaks!

Traveling Tips

Many people plan to travel, but then this crazy thing happens. Life gets in the way. Traveling can be a financial burden for many, and big vacations can often take years to plan and save up. However, you only get one life to live, and that life should be filled with happy adventure! Traveling doesn’t have to mean flying around the world; it can involve simply getting into your car and driving to a town nearby that you haven’t explored. It can even involve venturing to new places in your town!

Break the routine of prosaic living and allow yourself the chance to experience more of what the world has to offer. Traveling allows for the chance to experience new walks of life, expand your perspective, and meet new people along the way. Learn how to travel the smart way with budget friendly tips. Rather than rent expensive hotels, take advantage of room renting services, such as Airbnb, to save money. This will also allow you the opportunity to select lodging with a kitchen so that you can save money on dining out! Shopping local and preparing meals will save you a lot of money while away from home.

Many plan vacations for the summer, but traveling in the off-season is almost always a guaranteed way to save money. You can also cut down on expenses by traveling with friends or family, in order to split costs, or by traveling to where you know people. Though you might be tempted to stop for mementos, gift shops and general shopping should be avoided in order to save big bucks. The memories you make should be more than enough, and the less you purchase, the more you’ll be able to travel in the future. Lastly, always try to do some online searching pre-trip to scout out the best deals in the area you’re heading to.

Still don’t think you’ll be able to squeeze a trip in? Luckily you still have Munzee, a real world scavenger hunt that is all about exploration! Remember you can always set up Trail Munzees to lead other players down paths worth exploring in your neighborhood!

Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

April Resolutions Badge Details Have Arrived!

Can you believe we’ve already completed a quarter of 2019? Our monthly Capture Streak Badges centered around a year of personal improvement have already brought us the resolution to eat healthy (January), make new friends (February), and explore new hobbies (March). This month we’re happy to introduce getting organized as out April Resolution!

Each month’s badge is dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Remember that each month is the chance to put your best foot forward, so if you’re new to the game or accidentally missed a day, there’s no time like the present to get started on your streaks!

Organize Your Life

Have you heard of the term “spring cleaning?” Even if you’re currently enjoying fall on the Southern Hemisphere, it can benefit your life greatly to join us folks on the Northern Hemisphere and get your life cleaned out and organized this spring.

Did you know that there are health benefits to being organized? Organization is linked to an increased boost in energy. Shake the midday slump with a quick desk organization. Having your personal and digital space in order can lead to a burst in energy. Organization can also lead to better eating habits! That’s right, organizational skills are linked to healthier eating. They can even potentially lower heart attack risks by getting people off their feet and moving!

Organization can also improve sleep habits, which are a critical component of overall health. Clutter can lead to an increase in stress which disrupts sleep time and quality. Give yourself the peace of minded needed to recharge and reboot by having your personal effects in order. Overall, organization is linked to a reduction in stress and an increase in happiness. So don’t forget to use your filters to organize everyone’s favorite game!

Munzee on!

March Resolution Badge Details!

How comfortable are you with getting outside of your comfort zone? What skills have you been meaning to sharpen? Our monthly Capture Streak Badges are centered on a year of self-improvement, and March is no different. While January focused on eating healthy and February involved making new friends, March will be the month of picking up new hobbies!

Underwater sweater knitting, anyone?

Each month’s badge will be dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. Even if you missed out on the last two months, it’s never too late to get in on the healthy and happy living! The extra Munzee badge is just an added bonus.

The Importance of Hobbies

What’s your favorite hobby? (I mean aside from Munzee, of course.) While many of us feel consumed by our day to day lives, you don’t have to wait until retirement to explore your hobbies. And if you are already retired, you’re in luck! It’s time to start exploring what you enjoy. Carving a part out of each day to devote to activities that nourish you physically, mentally, and spiritually is tantamount to achieving overall health and well-being.

Maybe you fell out of touch with a cherished childhood activity or you’ve been meaning to explore a new activity for years. Whatever the case, having a hobby is proven to be beneficial for your mind and body. Hobbies are an excellent stress reliever, which has benefits for both your mental happiness and your overall physical health. It’s crucial to remember to take a break and unwind with an enjoyable activity in order to give yourself some important relaxation time.

At the same time, hobbies allow the opportunity for new experiences and challenges. Shake up the normal routine of your daily life and allow your brain to focus on something new. The mental stimulation will be rewarding, while allowing the chance to explore and discover new talents. Who knows what hidden hobby you will discover in yourself! It might even prove to be financially lucrative, while learning new skills can advance your career.

Don’t allow your free time to be wasted! Enrich your spirit by picking up a new hobby this month. Oh and don’t forget to cap something every day this month too!

Munzee on!

Mitmegu

Only a limited number of Mitmegu will be available for public sale. Each Mitmegu will cost $15, but you can upgrade it with a Bouncer Upgrade credit for an extra $5. The Bouncer Upgrade credit will equip your Mitmegu with the ability to be “nudged” to a new Munzee.

Joining Mitmegu for sale are our other Pouch Creatures, Tuli, Vesi, and Muru. The Bouncer Upgrade credit will upgrade all Pouch Creatures and all Myths, so be sure to pick one up in the shop! If you haven’t deployed a Pouch Creature yet, now is your chance! The Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Pouch Creature. While the name will still retain the unique number, you have the chance to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. (Just remember our player code of conduct!)

Additionally, the Water, Earth, and Fire Elemental Munzees will also be on sale this weekend in strips of 5 for $8, which is 20% off the original price! We also have Shamrock Munzees available in strips of 5 for $8. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner so stock up now!

Introducing Mitmegu Pouch Creature!

Joining the ranks of Tuli, Vesi, Muru, and Hadavale, we’re happy to announce the release of our latest Pouch Creature, Mitmegu!

Also known as the ever-changing Pouch Creature, there will be a limited number of Mitmegu Pouch Creatures on sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting at 10:00 MHQ on Wednesday, February 6. Be sure to shop fast, because Mitmegu will not be in the store for long! Mitmegu will cost $15, but it can also be upgraded using a Bouncer Upgrade credit (formerly the Myth Upgrade) which costs an additional $5.

When the Bouncer Upgrade credit is used, your Mitmegu will then have the ability to be “nudged” to a new Munzee. You can use the nudge feature up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day), but only after it has sat for at least 3 hours. This gives players the opportunity to find it before you send it on its way!

The Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Mitmegu! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct, and be mindful of maintaining a family friendly environment!

Mitmegu

While Mitmegu will be the fourth player-owned Pouch Creature, it will work a bit differently than Tuli, Vesi and Muru. Mitmegu will change forms depending on what it lands on and capture streaks will not impact the changing critter’s evolution.

 

Mitmegu will land on the following Munzee types:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrock Munzees
  • Scatter Munzees
  • Premium Munzees
  • RPS Munzees

There is a rare opportunity that the Mitmegu will land on an Elemental Mystery and change forms!

  • If Mitmegu lands on a Water Mystery Munzee it turns into Jootmegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on an Earth Mystery Munzee it turns into Rohimegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on a Fire Mystery Munzee it turns into Lokemegu

Mitmegu will retain its number when it changes, and if you upgrade and change its name it will keep that name on all forms. Players can cap Mitmegu on their own munzees as well.

Mitmegu Points

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture/CapOn: See Below

Mitmegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Mitmegu

Jootmegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 400 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Jootmegu

Rohimegu points will be distributed as follows:

Rohimegu

Lokemegu points will be distributed as follows:

  • Capture: 400 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points

Lokemegu

You can find Mitmegu by turning on your Only Expiring Specials and Only Pouch Creatures filters. This new Pouch Creature WILL be attracted to physical magnets, but only as Mitmegu on Greenies. Don’t forget to pick up a magnet at the Freeze Tag Online Store and magnetize a greenie of your choosing to attract up to 3 Specials, Myths, or Pouch Creatures for up to an hour!

For deploying a Mitmegu Pouch Creature Munzee, you will earn the following deploy badge:

There will also be three badges to earn per variant, amounting to a total of thirteen badges including the deploy badge.

Here are the first for each variant:

February Resolution Badge Details!

How has 2019 been treating you so far? As we announced last month in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of self-improvement. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. And since this month is the shortest, you have no excuse not to try!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. While our January resolution focused on eating healthy, we decided to do something special for the month of love. Love comes in more than just romantic forms, so we made our February resolution to make new friends.

February resolutions badge

Why meet new people?

Though socializing comes natural to some lucky humans, many struggle to build new friendships. While it’s tempting to retreat into yourself, there are actually proven health benefits that friendship can provide.

In fact, having friends may even extend your lifespan. People who forge strong social relationships are less likely to die prematurely compared to their isolated counterparts. Friends help each other get healthier, as well as improve mental sharpness. And, of course, we need friends to lean on in tough times, bounce ideas off, challenge our beliefs, and widen our perspectives. Overall, having a trusted network of friends makes us healthier, more balanced, and more centered beings.

One of our favorite parts about Munzee is all the new people we meet along the way. Whether we’re traveling across states or nations, or simply checking our social media and e-mails, we love hearing about and seeing how Munzee has brought people together. It’s not always easy to branch out, but sharing a common interest really helps with meeting new people. And while nothing can replace physical friends, it’s pretty awesome to have virtual ones as well!

So go out, make some friends, and maybe even introduce them to Munzee! Good luck and Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!
