The Return of Earth Day Greeting Cards and More!

Last week we announced some additions to our Open Edition card lineup — but we had a few more waiting in the wings, which we thought would be perfect to accompany the re-release of the Earth Day Cards!

We are happy to announce 4 NEW Greeting Cards — 3 are available for purchase, while 1 must be earned! You can pick up Greeting Cards from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. You receive multiple munzees from your single purchase. Read the details in the store, or see below.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

We have 2 new Open Edition cards* and 2 new Limited Edition cards for your deploying pleasure!

If you’re an armchair traveler, deploy some munzees at places you’d like to visit with a Wish I Was Here Card!

Maybe, despite all the craziness of last year, you feel content as the people you care about are safe. You can express that with a Life Is Good Card!

Proud of someone who’s been doing their best to stay safe? Send them a NEW Stay Home 2021 Card!

And lastly — from time to time we’ll award Picture Perfect Cards to players who add photos to certain munzee types!

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific note will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

Return of Earth Day Greeting Cards!

You may recall that we released the first Greeting Cards last year just in time for Earth Day! As they were Limited Edition Cards, we thought it might be nice for us to bring them back for a short while.

This brings the current lineup of Greeting Cards available for purchase to the following:

  • Open Edition (will always be available; ONE Purchase yields FOUR munzees)
    • Birthday
    • Get Well
    • Thank You
    • Congrats
    • Sorry / Sorry 1 / Sorry 2 / Sorry 3
    • Spring
    • Fall
    • Thinking of You
    • Knock Knock Joke
    • It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere
    • Wish I Was Here
    • Life Is Good
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Tech Issues (not available for sale)
    • March Into May Event (only available to March into May event hosts for their events)
    • Stay Home 2021
    • Picture Perfect (not available for sale)
    • Earth Day 1
    • Earth Day 2
    • Earth Day 3

As a refresher, the point structure for Greeting Cards is as follows:

  • Open Edition
    • Deploy: 50
    • Capture: 40
    • CapOn: 25
  • Limited Edition
    • Deploy: 60
    • Capture: 50
    • CapOn: 30

Remember that these munzees will be archived 7 days after they are deployed, so make sure your intended recipient captures it before then!

For more information on the Greeting Cards, you can check out our Help Guide article.

New Greeting Card Pack

We’re also excited to announce an updated Spring/Fall Mail Pack in the In-App Store with the new Stay Home 2021 Greeting Card!

 

We hope 2021 continues to be a year of well wishes among all of our players!

Munzee on!

 

*Please note that we have combined all Open Edition cards into a single product on the FT Store. Moving forward all new Open Edition cards for sale will show up in this product, and you can choose which type of card you would like there. You can purchase all Open Edition cards HERE!

Roverhaul Part 2!

Last month, Rover gained a cool new ability to dig up Jewel Shards while accompanying you on Jewel-capping sessions! We hinted that that was only the first part of Rover’s planned upgrades, so we’re excited to reveal the second part to you now!

Another Trick in Rover’s Toolkit!

When you feed Rover a Rover Treat, your capture radius for virtual scattered munzees* (i.e. Feathers, Gnome Hats, etc.) and Amethysts will be doubled or raised to a minimum of 500 ft for one capture! For example, if the munzee normally requires a capture radius of 300 ft, it will be doubled to 600 ft. And if the munzee normally requires a capture radius of 150 ft, it will be raised to the minimum of 500 ft.

At launch Rover will only help you capture the aforementioned types, however he may be trained to chase other types in the future.

You’ll only see the option to feed Rover a treat if you:

  1. Have a Rover with you AND
  2. Try to capture a virtual scattered munzee or Amethyst that is too far away

This flow should prevent you from wasting Rover Treats, and also ensure that the popup won’t be too disruptive during normal play!

Premium players will receive 1 Rover Treat during this launch! Otherwise, you can pick up Rover Treats in the In-App Store for 40 Zeds, or get a pack of 10 Rover Treats in the Freeze Tag Store for $3.

Rovers Now Available In-App!

If you checked out the In-App Store upon reading the previous paragraph, you most likely noticed another item sitting beside the Rover Treats — that’s right, Rovers are now available in the In-App Store!

As we continue to refine and improve the Munzee app, expect more Rover-related news!

Munzee on!

*Unfortunately, Charge Munzees (scatters that land on another munzee) and MOB scatters (scatters that come from munzees that land on another munzee) are excluded from this, but as stated above, this may change in the future!

Play a Round of Disc Golf With Robbie’s Flat Object!

In February, we introduced the first Flat Object, the Flat DHS! We loved the fun personal touch Dylan gave to his namesake game piece, and when it comes to creativity, Dylan is a hard act to follow. The rest of the MHQ staff has been using their spare moments thoughtfully designing their own Flat Object, so we hope you keep an eye out for them as they are released!

The second Flat Object is brought to you by Robbie, our indispensable Project Manager! If you’re a WallaBee player, Robbie is certainly a familiar face, but lately Robbie’s also been deeply involved in Munzee as well! For those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know him, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Robbie’s Flat Object features another outdoor hobby of his — disc golf! Whether you’re an avid disc golf player yourself or have never had the opportunity, the all new Flat Disc Golf Basket game piece should be easy to play with for all skill levels. Read on to learn more!

Flat Disc Golf Basket Details

The Flat Disc Golf Basket joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, blastable

Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own.

Deploy: 19 points

Capture: Split 90 points with a minimum of 19 Points

CapOn: Split 90 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat Disc Golf Basket munzee, turn on your “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types” filter. For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat Disc Golf Basket, which feature some Munzee-fied versions of disc golf gear. You can see the first of each below!

In-App Store Update!

Flat Rob, Flat Lou, the Flat DHS, and the Flat Disc Golf Basket are also now available for purchase in the In-App Store! The former two will cost 450 Zeds, while the latter two will cost 500 Zeds.

We hope you enjoy playing disc golf and learning a bit more about Robbie in the process! We also respectfully request that when referring to this game piece, please don’t shorten it to “Flat Basket” — Robbie thinks it makes him sound like a “basket case.” 😜

Munzee on!

If you’re game to venture outside this weekend, we’ll make it worth your while with this flora, fauna, and weather-themed ZEE-Dayz!

How’s the weather where you are? For this MHQ Staff member, it’s been alternating between sunny 80-degree days and rainy 60-degree days. We hope you are having better luck, but if not, it’ll all be worth it once the beautiful blooms come out!

New Open Edition Greeting Cards for 2021!

Can you believe it’s been almost a year since we first released Greeting Cards? While we’ve been releasing Limited Edition cards fairly regularly around the holidays, it’s been a while since we’ve added some new Open Edition cards. We’ve come up with some colorful new options that will help make the ordinary days special!

We are happy to announce 3 NEW Greeting Cards are available for purchase! You can pick up Greeting Cards from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. You receive multiple munzees from your single purchase. Read the details in the store, or see below.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

We have 3 new Open Edition cards for your deploying pleasure!

If you’re apart from someone and don’t have the opportunity to chat often, let them know they’re on your mind with a Thinking Of You Card!

Perhaps you’re lucky to have someone in your life who you can test out new jokes on — why not change things up a bit and send jokes to them via a Knock Knock Joke Card?

Miss going out with your drinking buddy? Send them an It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere Card!

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific note will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

This brings the current lineup of Greeting Cards available for purchase to the following:

  • Open Edition (will always be available; ONE Purchase yields FOUR munzees)
    • Birthday

We hope 2021 continues to be a year of well wishes among all of our players!

Save The Cubimals From Their Physical Prisons!

Players, we need your help! Earlier in the month, when the Baby Animals traveled by ferry from WallaBee to Munzee, they brought some stowaways. Unbeknownst to staff, the stowaways crawled into some prototype storage containers before they were sealed. And while we were planning on bringing those stowaways into the game to celebrate the upcoming National Pet Day, we never intended for them to be trapped inside QRates, which are tough to open from the inside. Are you up to the task of freeing them?

QRates and QRowbars

If so, first, you’ll need to find a QRate. At this time, there is a chance they’ll be found while capturing Greenies. However, this is certainly subject to change in the future!

Once you’ve got a QRate, you can find it in the Inventory section of your Profile, as shown below:

So that this new task isn’t overwhelming, you’ll only be able to work on 1 QRate at a time, unless you are a Premium member — then you’ll get 1 extra slot! This limit may change in the future.

Premium members also have the option of trashing a QRate once a day. This should be helpful if you are trying to find a rarer QRate (more info on that below!) or if you want to quickly free up a slot should we have special limited-time QRates in the future.

To unlock the QRate, you’ll either need to capture or deploy more physical munzees. Updated info post launch: Capturing bouncers/scatters on some physical munzees including greenies will also fulfill requirements. You can speed up the process by applying a QRowbar to the QRate, which will reduce the requirements by 25%. You can apply up to 3 QRowbars to each QRate, bringing the total reduction to 75%!

Premium members will find that we’ve added 6 QRowbars to their accounts, and they’ll get 1 every month afterwards as long as their Premium membership is active! Non-premium players will find 3 QRowbars added to their accounts. If you need more QRowbars, they cost 50 Zeds each. You can buy them by tapping on the [Use QRowbar] button at the bottom if you don’t have any, or by heading to the In-App Store!

Once you’ve fulfilled the QRate’s requirements, you will receive the prize inside! You can expect to receive either a Cubimal (more info on that below!), Booster, or other Credits. There are currently 3 different types of QRates, with different prize pools for each. The standard QRate was shown earlier, so you can see what the other two look like below:

Like the standard QRate, the Gold and Diamond QRates can only potentially be found when capturing greenies for now.

Cubimals

These are the aforementioned stowaways! If you’re a WallaBee player, you may recognize these distinctly-shaped characters from the The Cubimal Racing League and Cubimals 2: Trophy Hunt sets.

Currently there are 9 different Cubimals trapped inside QRates for you to collect. Unfortunately, we’ve only confirmed the identities of 3 of them so far:

We suspect that the remaining 6 share the characteristic of being similar to real-life pets. Keep an eye out for future announcements — we’re sure that the other Cubimals will follow their lead and turn up in QRates later on!

You’ll find a record of the Cubimals you’ve saved in the Achievements area of the app! We thought this area made sense as they are a collection of sorts, much like their WallaBee counterparts.

It is possible to receive duplicates of Cubimals. You can see how many of each Cubimal you’ve rescued by tapping on it and scrolling to the bottom of the popup, as shown above.

If you’re into the physical game, we hope this new mechanic adds just the right amount of spice to what you already enjoy! Otherwise, if you are more of a virtual player, we hope you give QRate cracking a try and rescue some Cubimals in the process!

Munzee on!

Continuing last year’s Baby Animals line, these cuties are temporary POBs. They bounce to either physical or virtual munzees, depending on the MunzPak you purchased. They will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on May 31, when they will be automatically archived on your account.

  • Deploy: 500 points
  • Capture: 200 points
  • CapOn: 100 points

Doge Pup Munzee
Physical MunzPak

Ever curious about the world, this furry friend loves to accompany you on all your outings and inspect anything unfamiliar with his high-functioning schnozz. This purehearted Baby Animal races to the following:

  • Treehouse
  • Greenie
  • Earth Mystery
  • Water Mystery
  • Dog Chinese Zodiac

Itty Bitty Kitty Munzee
Virtual MunzPak

This little soot sprite of a cat has become famous on the internet for her cute looks and soft meow, but she hasn’t let it get to her head! This adorable Baby Animal slinks to the following:

  • Skyland
  • All Virtual Colors
  • Air Mystery
  • Wildlife Places

Baby Monkey Munzee
Hybrid MunzPak

He may be a baby, but his opposable thumbs and well-formed arm muscles allow him to climb up and down trees with ease — meaning he can reach more landing pads than the other two! This acrobatic Baby Animal swings to the following:

  • Treehouse
  • Greenie
  • Earth Mystery
  • Water Mystery
  • Monkey Chinese Zodiac
  • Skyland
  • All Virtual Colors
  • Air Mystery
  • Wildlife Places

Baby Animals will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Baby Animal on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Baby Animal visits you. In virtual form, Baby Animals will be non-blastable. They will be attracted to Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Baby Animals under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

All players who purchase a MunzPak (which will automatically deploy the respective Baby Animal) will also receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Lastly, captures of these Baby Animals will contribute to progress towards badges in the Baby Animals Overall Capture line. So if you missed out on some of the badges from the Baby Animal MOBs, you have another 2 months to earn them by capping these tPOBs! We have added 2 new badges to that line, meaning that there are now a total of 10 badges to work towards! As a reminder, you can see the first of this badge line below:

Sweet Stickers- Capture 1 Baby Animal Special of any type.

Remember these temporary POBs will only be available for capture until the end of May, so cap as many as you can and keep them bouncing!

Munzee on!

NEW Filters Allow You To Explore Like Never Before!

With the myriad munzee types out there, using Filters is a must to make the most of your time. After all, one of our mottos is “Play your way”, and you may not be interested in ALL munzee types.

We also know that many of our players have multiple hobbies related to being outdoors. So, to make things even more convenient for you, we’ve started a NEW line of filters that should make it easier to engage in some of those hobbies at the same time as Munzee! There are only 2 to start, but keep an eye out for more filter announcements in the future!

The Metal Detector Mode filter will show the location of buried metal artifacts up to 8 ft deep. Please note that this filter’s accuracy is dependent on the size of the artifact and your distance from it. A wrench buried at a depth of 2 ft will have a much more accurate location than a paper clip that is at a depth of 6 ft.

The Paranormal Mode filter will show the location of ghosts as they take on a corporeal form. Please note that this filter’s accuracy is dependent on the strength of the ghost’s spirit. Older ghosts tend to be weaker as they begin to forget their purpose for haunting the Earth.

You’ll find the Metal Detector Mode filter in the Physical tab, the Paranormal Mode filter in the Virtual tab, and both in the Premium tab, as you can see in the screenshots below:

We hope these colorful new filters enhance your app experience!

Munzee on!

Pop! Goes the Jack In Zee Box!

Do you enjoy toy-themed munzees, like our Christmas Combat specials? Have we got a game piece for you! While this toy does have a lot of things in common with the Christmas Combat specials (particularly the non-scattering ones), we actually looked to another toy — our past Magic 8 Ball specials — for inspiration!

Jack In Zee Box Details

The Jack In Zee Box is the first temporary POB (tPOB) available for purchase in the In-App Store! It will cost 750 Zeds, but we aren’t sure how long this jack will stay in the box. It may pop away by the 4th, the 14th or the 30th, so pick one up soon if you’re interested! They are limited to 1 per player.

Jack In Zee Box will bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. It will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on May 11 OR after 41 captures (whichever comes first) when it will be automatically archived on your account.

  • Deploy: 300 points
  • Capture: 200 points
  • CapOn: 100 points

Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, once the Jack In Zee Box is captured, 1 of 10 possible icons will be revealed. Curious as to what you’ll find inside? We’ll give you a sneak peek, but you’re going to have to get busy capping to discover the other 9 icons. This first one may be a familiar face for those who played in back in 2017!

Jack In Zee Boxes will bounce around every 6 hours or when capped to the following types:

The Jack In Zee Box will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Jack In Zee Box on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Jack In Zee Box visits you. However, Jack In Zee Boxes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to Magnets. You can access Jack In Zee Boxes under the “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.

Badges

All players who purchase a Jack In Zee Box will receive the deploy badge shown below:

Silly Spring- Deploy one Jack In The Box Munzee.

There is also a badge line for overall captures of Jack In Zee Box munzees. However, since these badges reveal some of the other Jack In Zee Box heads, we’ll keep their appearance a secret for now.

We hope you enjoy this newest invention from the MHQ Workshop!

Munzee on!

Today is National Virtual Vacation Day, which is perhaps the most important holiday of all in these times.

We ALL need a vacation, but for many of us, a staycation is the only option right now. So, to make your socially-distanced neighborhood walk a little more travel-themed, we have nearly a week of bonuses for you to enjoy!

Double Points Details

From the period of Tuesday, March 30th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, April 4th at 23:59 MHQ, enjoy double points on ALL Destination activity!
