While some might believe that a frog’s favorite game is croak-et, their game of choice is in fact Munzee! So we decided, what better way to celebrate our amphibian friends than with their own Evolution Munzees? Starting August 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, our brand new Frog Evolutions will be made available through the August MunzPak Subscriptions!
The latest Evolution Munzee will only be available in Physical MunzPak Subscriptions, sold in the Freeze Tag Online Store. However, keep in mind that if any MunzPak orders are placed before August 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, players will be receiving the July MunzPak. The Frog Evolution is a combination of Physicals and Virtuals, with Stages 1-4 bouncing to Physical Munzees and Stage 5 bouncing to Virtual and Physical Munzees.
The 5 stages of the Frog Evolution are as follows:
Stage 1: Frog Egg
Stage 2: Tadpole
Stage 3: Pollywog
Stage 4: Froglet
Stage 5: Frog (3 Variants)
The stage timeline of the Frog Evolutions will match that of the Butterfly Evolution. The stages will be as follows:
Stage 1 to Stage 2: after 4 days
Stage 2 to Stage 3: after 14 days
Stage 3 to Stage 4: after 10 days
Stage 4 to Stage 5: permanent until Reset to stage one
Once the Frog Evolution reaches Stage 4, a temporary POB will be launched. The Pollywog will become the Froglet and remain in place, while the Frog variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.” Once the Frog Evolution reaches Stage 5, it will stay in place for 8 hours or when captured, and will not be able to be nudged. Once 10 captures or 42 days have elapsed for Stage 5, the Frog will be archived.
The first four stages of the Frog Evolutions will be the same for all players. However, Stage 5 will have the option of emerging as one of three different frog species (the green Tree Frog, blue Poison Dart Frog, or red Tomato Frog) which can bounce to both Physicals and Virtuals. Like the Flower Evolutions, the chance of the Frog Evolution evolving to one of the 3 types changes every time it is reset with the Evolution Reset Credit.
Purchasing the reset credit will set your Evolution back to Stage 1, for a chance for the Frog to evolve to a different species at Stage 5. Although you cannot capture a reset if you have already captured the original, you CAN capture the final level of a reset if it evolves to a different color than your first capture. An easy way to know is, if you see it on the map you can capture it!
Please note that although the first four stages for each are the same, they will count as different special capture icons. Like all Player Owned Bouncers (POBs), the Frog Evolution will be available for multi-capture only as the Level 5 Frog.
The points for the Frog Evolution will be as same as the Butterfly Evolution, with 100 points awarded per Stage 1 deploy.
Stage 1: Cap: 50, CapOn: 30
Stage 2: Cap: 40, CapOn: 20
Stage 3: Cap: 45, CapOn: 25
Stage 4: Cap: 40, CapOn: 30
Stage 4: Cap: 150, CapOn: 50, Host CapOn: 50
Just like real life frogs, the Frog Evolution Munzee sometimes hops to dangerous areas including predator filled waters, and high-speed roadways! Bouncing Frog Evos will be attracted to the following landing pads:
The Frog Evolution will adhere to normal proximity rules. Stage 1 deploys must be at least 50 feet from any other physical type and 150 feet from your own physical munzees. It will have a normal physical capture radius of 300 feet for Stages 1-4, and a capture radius of 500 feet for Stage 5.
Stage 5 of the Frog Evos will be attracted to Munzee Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on Green Virtuals. They are NOT blastable. To access the Frog Evolution Munzees, turn on your “Evolution” and “All Expiring Specials” filters. The Frog Evolutions will count toward Evolution Capture and Deploy badges.
The full contents of the August MuzPak Subscriptions will be revealed tomorrow. We hope this latest Evolution has you jumping for joy in the meantime! 🐸
Agents, ZeeOps HQ’s system has been hacked and all of our files on past missions have been erased! You’ll have to recreate past Operations in what we’re calling LegaZeeOps. It’s up to you to keep the legacy of this organization in tact. The missions for this month are the same that were originally available in August 2017’s Operations.

July has been a QRazy month, but when we say QRazy, we mean QRazy awesome! We challenged players to help us reach 8,888,888 deploys before the conclusion of the month, and the Munzee community joined forces to complete the QRazy 8’s Deploy Challenge by July 19! That means in addition to the July POTM badge, qualifying players can enjoy their QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge prizes!
Since July was Munzee’s birthday month, we wanted to celebrate a wide variety of players who help contribute to growing the game! All “Determined Deployers” who have deployed at least 16 munzees throughout July (not including socials and personals) will be awarded the special July POTM badge on August 1:
The July POTM badge is a special badge unique from previous POTM badges. This is a brand new badge that any player, regardless of previous POTM wins, is able to earn. Remember, there is still a day and a half left to finish your deploys before July ends in order to earn the badge!
QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge
In addition to the special July POTM badge, all July POTM winners also qualify for the QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge prizes! All players who deployed at least 8 munzees in the month of July will be awarded 1 Virtual, 1 Virtual Color Credit, 1 Urban Fit credit, 1 Physical Capture 2x Booster, and the limited edition QRazy 8’s badge on August 1! Check out the awesome badge design:
A big shoutout to everyone who helped us reach this QRazy milestone!
August POTM Requirements
Lastly, our August POTM criteria will call for player nominations! As the QRazy 8’s challenge demonstrated, Munzee thrives due to its awesome, interactive community. We’re lucky to have a dedicated players base who helps maintain the map, as demonstrated by ZeeQRew and QRew statuses. Do you know a player who readily responds to missing munzees and is dedicated to keeping the map clean? Email your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org! Please keep in mind that the nominated account will need to be verified as either ZeeQRew or QRew for the chance to win August POTM!
A big congratulations to all of our July POTM and GOTM winners! We’ve had a fantastic month celebrating Munzee with many of you! Remember that there are still two weeks of birthday celebrations left to be had, as well as MHQ Bash 6 on the horizon!
July has been an outstanding month, as an influx in specials hit the map and players celebrated Munzee’s 8th birthday all over the world in #8zees attire. That’s why we decided, why limit our July Garden of the Month (GOTM) winners to our typical two winning gardens, when we’ve been having the double the fun?! Below you can find all four of our winning gardens!
In honor of Munzee’s birthday month, we selected some of our favorite celebratory Munzee gardens for July GOTM. All winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map! Our winning July Gardens are as follows: 7th Birthday Garden, organized by Jesnou, Sivontim, Mandello, and Neesu; Happy Birthday Karte, organized by Engel19 and teamkiwii; Munzee Logo, organized by Bonn; and I HEART MUNZEE, organized by NativenUK! The winning gardens appear as follows:
This festive garden, created for last year’s birthday celebrations, captures the fun and joy of Munzee! Thanks to our friends in Finland for working together to organize this celebratory garden, as well as many awesome group creations!
Husband and wife team Engel19 and teamkiwii have organized a number of garden projects over the years to grow the game in the Stuttgart area of Germany, including this garden for last year’s birthday celebration. Together they have spent many hours planning and nurturing their wonderful gardens to spread Munzee joy!
Garden creator Bonn earned a second win with this Munzee Logo Garden, featuring the signature Munzee Logo and colors! Previously Bonn captured the Munzee spirit with one of the two winning March Gardens of the Month for his QR Code Map!
Inspired by the “I love NY” logo, this garden will turn red when completed and capped. Located in an untapped suburb of Buffalo, NY close to Niagara Falls, this celebratory garden was recently completed just before Munzee’s birthday month ended! We love this clever design that celebrates everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt!
All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:
Do you know a garden that is worthy of the August GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!
GOTM Rules for GOTM nominations:
Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.
Send your nomination for GOTM to email@example.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!
A big congratulations to all of our July GOTM winners, and a big thank you to all players who have helped grow the game and Celebrate Munzee! Stay tuned for for more information about July Player of the Month (POTM) and August POTM requirements!
The Coupe du Munzee specials might have left the map on July 7 following the conclusion of the Women’s World Cup, but we told you that wouldn’t be the end of these specials! Please welcome the Coupe Champion Nomad to the map at 15:00 MHQ time to honor our champion, Team USA!
This golden icon will operate similarly to our Nomad Munzees, which are rare bouncers that travel all over the map. Unlike our Coupe du Munzee specials, it will be a permanent munzee, meaning this physical bouncing game piece is here to stay! There will be 11 of the Coupe Champion Nomads on the map, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when capped. The number of Nomads signifies the 11 players on the field during a game of football/soccer.
Coupe Champion Nomads work a bit differently though. When you cap any of the 11 Coupe Champion Nomads you have a chance of earn one of 23 different icons featuring the jersey number of a member of the victorious Team USA! Similar to the Magic 8 Ball Specials, you don’t know which number you’ll get so cap these rare superstars any chance you can!
These munzees can be captured on previously capped and owned munzees. They will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets. You can access the Coupe Champion Nomads by turning on your All Expiring Specials and All Limited Edition Specials filters.
There will be a special badge to earn upon capturing at least one Coupe Champion Nomad. These new bouncers will also count toward the other Nomad badge lines as well.
Coupe Du Munzee Champions!
We would also like to take a moment to acknowledge all of the teams that participated in the Coupe, especially the Netherlands team that put up such a great fight in the championship game. As a worldwide game ourselves we value the merits of international competition, and we had a ton of fun watching all of the games alongside our own international players. Now get out there and cap the Coupe Champion Nomad to celebrate the victory of Team USA! Even if you weren’t rooting for them, you have to admire the athletic achievement of the fierce women of Team USA!
Will you be joining us in California for Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash on Saturday, July 20? The #8zees will be in full swing as Matt, Dylan, Craig, Mick, Mari, Tamara, and Emma join players in turning back time for Munzee’s 8th birthday celebration in sunny Tustin, CA! You will be able to earn some awesome new badges and icons, including the two pictured below:
Pool Shark Event Badge
You can RSVP to the event now to join members of the Freeze Tag Team on July 20 at 10:00 in Citrus Ranch Park for an unforgettable trip down memory lane. Not sure what to wear? As you recall, each event host has been awarding players with a special badge for best 8zees (80s) attire. And though staff members won’t be vying for this badge, they will be dressing up!
Members of staff will be taking a little “trip to the movies,” as some Freeze Tag teammates will be dressing up as some of their favorite 80s movie characters. Whether you’re more of a Ferris Bueller or an Indiana Jones, we know you want to join in on the 8zees fun! Remember that players in attendance will be able to earn exclusive Traveling Team badges when they meet team members!
To get you in the 8zees mood, we will be selling a brand new Personal Tag in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting today at 15:00 MHQ time. Inspired by National Video Game Day this past Monday (and our recent Joystick Munzee artwork!), this retro Personal Tag will get you right in that 8zees spirit. This tag is also available for the sale price of $8.88 in celebration of our 8th birthday!
Let’s turn back time and make some new Munzee memories!
The map has seemed a little too calm lately, so we’ve sent out some brand new RetireMyths to haunt it! There will be a number of new RetireMyths, representing our latest Mythological Munzees, setting out to haunt the map at their own will! These creatures will begin haunting the map very soon!
Our latest RetireMyths will include the physical and virtual Banshee RetireMyth, the physical and virtual Fairy RetireMyth, and the physical Mermaid RetireMyth. Like the other RetireMyths, these game pieces will join the map once any Myth owned by an Inactive or Retired account has been archived. These munzees will roam the map at certain times, and are worth 500 points upon first capture, with the point value decreasing by 1 point per each subsequent capture of the unique RetireMyth.
As a reminder, RetireMyths are not attracted to magnets, and they land on the same type of Munzee as their regular counterpart. That means you might want to brush up on your Mythological Munzee knowledge in order to find these ghoulish game pieces.
Zombie Pouch Creatures
Our Myth Munzees can’t be the only type haunting the map! Now introducing the Zombie Pouch Creatures, which will operate like RetireMyths for Pouch Creatures owned by Inactive or Retired accounts!
Muru, Tuli, and Vesi just got a little bit gloomier (though Muru was always pretty gloomy) with their Zombie Pouch Creature variants. They will work the same way that RetireMyths do, entering the map at select times and landing on the same type of Munzee as their regular counterpart. Like the RetireMyths, Zombie Pouch Creatures will be worth 500 points upon first cap and 1 point less for each cap per unique munzee that follows. Please note that Zombie Pouch Creatures will NOT level up into their other forms.
Are you ready to find some haunted munzees? Remember that these are rare finds only available at select times!
It’s time for a map change! The Women’s World Cup Semifinals have officially determined which two teams will be battling it out for third place and which teams will have the chance to compete for the championship! We thought it was only fitting to reflect this on the map for our Coupe du Munzee specials, with our next icon change taking place on Friday, July, 5 at 00:01 MHQ time!
The Semifinals saw teams USA and Netherlands advancing to the finals, while England and Sweden will be competing for third place following their losses. However, rather than reduce England and Sweden to one icon per team as we have done with the other eliminated teams, these team icons will remain on the map at 34 icons per team! After all, these teams battled through quite the challenge and deserve recognition! Meanwhile, our top two teams have seen their icons increase from 11 to 30 to 50 to 75. Teams USA and Netherlands will now both have 120 icons per team to celebrate their amazing athletic achievements!
That means the Coupe du Munzee distribution will be as follows:
Top two teams, 120 icons per team:
Third and fourth place teams, 34 icons per team:
20 eliminated teams, 1 icon per team:
You will have until July 7 at 23:59 MHQ time to cap the Coupe du Munzee specials before they leave the map! There will also be a special surprise celebration to look forward to for the winning team icon! Stay tuned for more details, and remember that physical Munzee Magnets can help with capping those elusive team icons!
Do you have a burning question that you’re dying to have answered!? Can’t decide on whether or not to get a haircut or runaway to Tahiti? Well the Magic 8 Ball Munzee specials will be here tomorrow at 00:01 MHQ time to grant your questions a Munzee-fied response (as well as points and badges)! (Note: Freeze Tag is not liable for any real world player decisions made based off Magic 8 Ball Munzee answers 😉.)
Our Magic 8 Ball specials will launch at 00:01 MHQ time on July 3, with 888 hitting the map until 23:59 MHQ time on July 31! Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, there are a possibility of 8 different icons revealed after this special is captured. Each icon will correspond with a different saying that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Gleaming Pouch Creatures work. They will bounce around every 6 hours or when capped.
Dying to know what capture messages could be in store for you? We’ll give you a sneak peak, but you’re going to have to get busy capping to discover the other 7 options:
Capture: 88 points
CapOn: 19 points
These Virtual Munzees will not be blastable. They will bounce to all virtual colors and be attracted to Virtual Magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Magic 8 Ball specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.
Badges & Personals
There is also a line featuring —you guessed it!— 8 new badges to earn based off number of captures of Magic 8 Ball specials. The first badge in the series appears as follows:
Magic 8 Ball– Capture 1 Magic 8 Ball special of any type.
The other seven badges may not be as easy to figure out as you think, so keep capping all month long to figure out the rest! Finally, we are happy to offer a fun collection of Magic 8 Ball Personal Tags available for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting tomorrow at 10:00 MHQ time! Here is a sneak peak:
There will be 8 different Magic 8 Ball Personal Tag responses. Players can either purchase an individual tag for $8 to receive a surprise saying or purchase the full set of 8 for $48. You can shop the Personal Tags HERE!
This special, of course, is brought to you by Munzee’s 8th birthday! This is a month for celebration as we live it up in the #8zees!
