Flat Day The 13th Part 5: Unlucky Objects

You guessed it! There’s only 1 Friday the 13th this year, so we wanted to make sure this one was extra-special. Continuing our tradition of themed specials, this year we’ve got some Unlucky Objects for you to collect! Please note that as they are MOBs, caps of them will not count towards any Flat requirements in Clan Wars or ZeeOps, though they do look similar to our Flat Objects. On top of that, we’ve got some limited-time and not-so-limited-time badges to earn, a sale, and DOUBLE POINTS on certain types, so make sure to read all the details below!

Unlucky Object Specials

From the period of Friday, May 13th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, May 29th at 23:59 MHQ, Unlucky Object Specials will bounce around on the map! We’ll be releasing the Objects in waves, but will end at 313 of each Object, for a total of 2191 Specials. They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

Physical Unlucky Objects Virtual Unlucky Objects
Points Points
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
Landing Pads Landing Pads

These specials will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture an Unlucky Object on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Unlucky Object visits you. These munzees will not be blastable. They will be attracted to magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Unlucky Object specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Badges

We’ve created 10 NEW Badges for you to earn via specific gameplay actions! As four of them are time-sensitive, here are the details for those first:

  • The 4 time-sensitive badges will only be available for the same time period as the Unlucky Objects are bouncing around on the map.
    • 2 of the badges are based on the total number of Unlucky Objects capped. You can see what the first badge in the line looks like below.
    • 1 of the badges is based on capping one of each of the Unlucky Objects, so make sure to cap as many as you can!
    • The final badge has very special requirements which we’ll keep a secret for now… think you can figure it out?

Ladder Lapper- Capture 1 Unlucky Object of any type.

The remaining six badges can be earned at any time, so we hope you’ll enjoy discovering them as you play!

Sale on Flats!

Better your chances at capping an Unlucky Object by deploying a Flat Munzee near you!

If you don’t have any Flat Munzees in your inventory, all Flats except Fancy Flats are 20% off from the period of Friday, May 13th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, May 15th at 23:59 MHQ at the Freeze Tag Store! The “FLATDAY13TH2022” discount code should be automatically applied.

In addition, we’ve also got Kill Them With Kindness Cards back in stock!

You can see the entire collection here: https://store.freezetag.com/collections/flat-friends

Double Points Details

From the period of Friday, May 13th at 00:01 MHQ through Sunday, May 15th at 23:59 MHQ, enjoy double points on Unlucky Objects, Flat Objects, and Jason 4Zees Nomads.

In addition, Premium Members will also enjoy double points on Flat Friends!

We hope you’re ready to face these foul flat specials once again!

Munzee on!

May the Fourth Specials + ZEE-Dayz

Today is a very special day in the Munzee world — it’s May 4th! Pre-pandemic, this date was a popular choice for events themed around a certain space opera, so the Munzee Calendar would be full of “May the Fourth” events. Creative event hosts found a way to extend this theme to the 5th and 6th days of the month by dubbing them either “Return of the Fifth” or “Return of the Sixth” events, respectively. While the current situation has unfortunately put these events on hiatus (not to mention that all of these days are during the workweek, which would make it difficult for players to meet up for an event anyway) we decided to bring the party to you! Read on for everything you need to know!

May the Fourth Specials

From the period of Wednesday, May 4th at 12:00 MHQ through Thursday, May 12th at 23:59 MHQ, May the Fourth Specials will bounce around on the map! Like the original KrampBots, these specials are Mechz, which means they are also tPOBs, but solely owned by an official Munzee account. No players are able to purchase/own/deploy a May the Fourth special. We’ll be releasing the Mechz in waves, but will end at a total of 1000 ARF2D2s and 1000 ZEE-3P0s. They will bounce around every 6 hours or when capped.

These specials will stay on the map until they have been captured 5 times, when they will be archived. After the fifth capture these specials will be “swamped” or “scrapped”, respectively, which results in more points for the capper.

ARF2D2 ZEE-3P0
Points Points
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
  • Swamped (5th Cap): 250
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
  • Scrapped (5th Cap): 250
Landing Pads Landing Pads

These specials will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture an ARF2D2 or ZEE-3P0 on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same ARF2D2 or ZEE-3P0 visits you. These munzees will not be blastable. They will be attracted to magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the May the Fourth specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

When an ARF2D2 is captured, it will scatter up to 3 Leash Sabers. Similarly, when a ZEE-3P0 is captured, it will scatter up to 3 Tin Toppers.

Leash Saber Tin Topper
Points Points
  • Capture: 50
  • Capture: 50

These scatters will be visible to any player! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet.

NEW Scrap Star Details

We are happy to unveil the Scrap Star,  the second temporary virtual Destination! The Scrap Star works just like the tPOB Pub, except that it ONLY ATTRACTS Mechz.

It is available NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. Be sure to shop fast, because it will leave the store at 12:00 MHQ on Monday, May 16th!

Basic Info Special Info
  • ONLY DEPLOYABLE IN-APP
  • Attracts up to 6 Mechz over time
  • Stays on the map for 7 days
  • Automatically magnetized when 1st deployed
    • Is magnetizable afterwards
  •  Points:
    • Deploy: 250 points
    • Cap: 10 points + points for Mechz in the Scrap Star at the time of capture.
    • CapOn: 50 points
  • Can be capped once per player per 24 hour MHQ day
    • New Mech landings do NOT refresh the capture setting
  • The regular Mech timer is still in effect. If a Mech times out, it leaves the Scrap Star and an open spot becomes available for others
  • Players will see the base icon above for 0, but then a 1-6 as more Mechz stop by

The deploy circle for Scrap Star will be 4,000 feet (1219.2 m) from the nearest tPOB Pub or Scrap Star. Capture radius is 1000 feet.

To access the Scrap Star, turn on your Virtual filter and find it under “Destinations”. If the Scrap Star is hosting munzees, it can also be visible with the “All Expiring Specials” filter.

For more information on Destinations, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Mech Sale!

From the period of Wednesday, May 4th at 12:00 MHQ through Monday, May 16th at 12:00 MHQ (same period as Scrap Star availability), select Mechz are back in stock! Shop them all in the Mech Collection HERE!

When you purchase a Mech, it will auto-deploy the Mech and also provide you with the Blueprints to rebuild it again with Cogs, if you don’t already own it.

Double Points Details

From the period of Wednesday, May 4th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, May 8th at 23:59 MHQ,  non-trial Premium Members can enjoy double points on ALL Mechz!

If you need a refresher on all the different Mechz, here is a list:

Badges

There will be three badges to earn for May the Fourth specials. To earn them, all you need to do is cap one of each special! You can see the first badge below.

As for the Scrap Star, there are two badges you can earn — one for deploying, and one for capping. You can see the deploy badge below as well.

We hope this long post didn’t have you contemplating joining the dark side — thanks for reading until the end!

Munzee on!

Snag a Spot in our NEW Pop-Up Gardens!

We’ve created “gardens” in 7 new locations that are old-school hot spots! At each of the locations listed below, there will be 2 gardens. One garden will be composed entirely of Virtual Colors, while the other will be composed entirely of Flats, excluding the Flat RUM (as they are exclusive products that you can only get from our Authorized Resellers). Each garden will contain around 50 pins in a simple rectangle shape, just like the Emerald Gardens for last year’s Christmas Event Packages.

Where?

  1. Sydney
  2. Helsinki
  3. Disneyland
  4. Disney World (at Disney Springs)
  5. Mall of America
  6. Köln
  7. London

When?

Starting NOW! No specific end date — until all the gardens are filled!

Why?

We chose the locations above with newer players in mind: being old-school hot spots, that means they’ve been covered with munzees since the early days of the app.

How?

You can secure your spot in these gardens at the links below! As usual, the ZeeQRew listing offers the pins at a 10% discount.

As these garden pins are deployed via a special process, their deploys will award 100 points, regardless of the type deployed. Capture and CapOn points will award the usual points specific to the type.

We hope you’ll join us in making these old-school hot spots cool with more virtual munzees!

Munzee on!

These Animal QRackers are Too Sweet for Soup!

Continuing our animal-filled April, we’ve created Animal QRacker specials just in time for National Animal Crackers Day! These specials are live NOW until 23:59 MHQ time on May 1!

Animal QRacker Specials

We’ll be distributing the boxes in waves, but will end at a total of 900 Green Animal QRacker Boxes and 900 Red Animal QRacker Boxes. Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, there are a possibility of 7 different icons for each (a total of 14 different results!) revealed after this special is captured. Each icon will correspond with a different QRacker that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Magic 8 Ball specials worked. They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

Green Animal QRacker Box Red Animal QRacker Box
Points Points
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
Landing Pads Landing Pads

Hungry for samples of these scrumptious QRackers? We’ll give you a sneak peek, but you’ll have to track down some QRacker Boxes to discover the other 13 options:

These munzees will not be blastable. They will be attracted to magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Animal QRacker specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Badges

There is also a line of 5 new badges to earn. 3 are based off the total number of captures of Animal QRacker specials. The first badge in the series appears as follows:

QRracker Cutter- Capture 1 Animal QRacker Box special.

The other 2 badges are based on receiving specific results — we’ll keep those a surprise for now! Just cap as many Animal QRacker Boxes as you can for your best chance at earning them!

Need MORE Pets? Mari’s Flat Object is Actually 2-in-1!

You didn’t really think we’d celebrate National Pet Day with just Pet Rocks, did you? If so — consider it a late April Fool’s prank! With so many loveable pets out there, we knew we had to include a crowd-pleasing, cute, and cuddly animal in the festivities. We got more than we bargained for, as you’ll see — one became two!

The seventh Flat Object is brought to you by Mari, our productive Product Manager! She is the one who keeps MHQ running like a well-oiled machine! Thanks to her diligence in planning things well in advance, we’ve managed to meet a lot of our goals on schedule, rather than 1,000 hours each time! If you’ve attended any of the Munzee Events we’ve hosted in the past, you may have met Mari, but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know her, or would like a refresher, you can check out her most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Mari’s Flat Object is similar to Wylie’s in that it may be more accurately described as Flat Pets — but as it follows the same structure as other Flat Objects, we’ll still call it one for consistency. Say hello to the Flat Cats, based on her cats Benji and Burr! Benji is the orange one and Burr is the black one – they are brothers and the bestest friends in the whole world! 😺 They are the stars of many a Zoom call (and possibly the only things keeping Mari from going insane while stuck at home — call it the opposite of the crazy cat lady effect)! Read on to learn more!

Flat Cats Details

The Flat Cats join the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Flat Cats
Points
  • Deploy: 19
  • Capture: Split 89 points with a minimum of 19 Points
  • CapOn: Split 89 points with a minimum of 19 Points
Additional Info
  • Capture Radius: 300 feet
  • Blastable
  • Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own
  • Filters: “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types”

For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat Cats, which, as hinted above, feature some cute cat accessoreez and hijinks. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy catching Flat Cats and learning a bit more about Mari in the process!

Munzee on!

Flamingos Aren’t the Only Bird in Town! NEW Evolution!

Springtime is not only about beautiful new blooms — there’s lots of new life to look forward to! Since it’s been more than a year since the release of the Bee Evolution, it’s about time to add some new Evolution Munzees to our roster! Starting April 5 at 12:00 MHQ time, our brand new Duck Evolutions will be made available through the Freeze Tag Store!

Duck Evolution Munzees

The Duck Evolution is a bit different from the previous Animal Evolutions, as there are only 4 stages total. This is to balance out the longer time for the Duck to fully evolve — in our research, we found that it takes ducks 21 days to hatch. Stages 1-3 of the Duck Evos are virtual munzees, which are as follows:

NOTE: Evolution timeframes have been corrected in the blog.

Duck Nest Duck Egg Duckling
Points Points Points
  • Deploy: 100
  • Capture: 50
  • CapOn: 30
  • Capture: 40
  • CapOn: 20
  • Capture: 45
  • CapOn: 25
Additional Info Additional Info Additional Info
  • Lasts for 7 days
  • Blastable
  • Lasts for 14 days
  • Blastable
  • Remains on the map
  • Blastable

Once these Evolutions reach Stage 3, a temporary POB will be launched, which is Stage 4. For example, if you’ve deployed a Duck Evolution, the Duckling will remain in place (as mentioned above), while the adult Duck variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.”

Stage 4 Ducks will bounce to both physical and virtual landing pads every 8 hours. They have the option of emerging as one of the three different species shown below, with the Swan being the rarest of the 3.

  • Host CapOn: 50

  • Host CapOn: 50
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
  • Host CapOn: 50
Additional Info Additional Info Additional Info

Like the Flower Evolutions, the chance of the Duck Evolution evolving to one of the 3 types changes every time it is reset with the Evolution Reset Credit. Although you cannot capture a reset evolution if you have already captured the original from stages 1-3, you CAN capture the final level of a reset when it evolves and releases a new tPOB. An easy way to know is, if you see it on the map you can capture it!

Please note that although the first three stages for each are the same, they will count as different special capture icons.

Just like real life ducks, the Duck Evolution Munzees stick to a healthy diet! Bouncing Duck Evos will be attracted to the following landing pads:

To access the Duck Evolution Munzees, turn on your “Evolution” and “All Expiring Specials” filters. They will count toward Evolution Capture and Deploy badges.

We hope this latest Evolution has you ready to splash into spring (in the northern hemisphere) in the meantime!

Munzee on!

Stake Your Claim on the Map With This NEW Flat Object!

It’s been a little over 2 weeks since Munzee Madness 11, and though it was still a multi-stage event, it feels like it ended so quickly. We really missed attending events in-person and seeing players we’ve known for years, along with some new faces! As its first event was in 2012, Munzee Madness is the longest-running annual event hosted by players. It was originated by one of our Resellers, 1849, who owns Gold’n Coins! This quick history lesson is just one example of Resellers helping to maintain and grow the Munzee community — so in honor of ALL our Resellers, we’ve created a NEW game piece just for them!

The sixth Flat Object is a little different from the previous objects, as it was not designed by one specific team member — instead, we’ve developed it to represent our Resellers! As Munzee is a global game, we appreciate that our Resellers make it easier for local players to get their hands on Munzee stickers and other physical items. On top of that, as mentioned above, they are often a huge part of maintaining and growing the local Munzee community.

This Flat (and the badges associated with them) will be continuing the pirate theme we’ve established for our Resellers. Read on to learn more!

Flat RUM Details

The Flat RUM joins the Flats as a virtual type. If you are interested in picking one up, they will be available at most of our Authorized Resellers’ shops some time today. The links to shop all of our resellers are below!

Flat RUM
Points
  • Deploy: 19
  • Capture: Split 83 with a minimum of 18
  • CapOn: Split 83 with a minimum of 18
Additional Info
  • Capture Radius: 300 feet
  • Blastable
  • Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own
  • Filters: In “Virtual – Flats” or “All Flat Types” filter
  • Counts towards both Flat and RUM reqs for Clan Wars and ZeeOps
Store Links

For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat RUM, which, as hinted above, feature the gear you need for a nautical voyage. You can see the first of each below!

ZEE-Dayz Coming Soon!

Similar to last week’s MunzPak ZEE-Dayz, expect a ZEE-Dayz event for non-trial Premium Members kicking off Thursday at 00:01 MHQ! Flat Munzees will see double their normal point values!

If you are shooting for the the badge and exclusive bouncer for hosting an event every month this year, why not plan your March event for this weekend? Your attendees will be raking in the points! To refer to the details for the Monthly Event Packages again, click HERE!

We hope you enjoy capturing the flags and embracing the pirate life!

Munzee on!

Are You an Animal Lover? Then You’ll Love Wylie’s Flat Object!

Now that we’re well into 2022, it’s just about time to release our first Flat Object of the year! With National Love Your Pet Day and National Walking the Dog Day coming up, it seemed like the perfect time for this next game piece to come into the spotlight. Expect to see lots of Munzee Merch in the store based on its design in the coming weeks!

The fifth Flat Object is brought to you by Wylie, our powerhouse Production Specialist! If you ever ordered physical products from the Freeze Tag Store, she has been involved in every step of the process in bringing that product to you! From designing to manufacturing to shipping, she can do it all! If you’ve attended any of the Munzee Events we’ve hosted in the past, you may have met Wylie, but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know her, or would like a refresher, you can check out her most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Wylie’s Flat Object may actually be more accurately described as a Flat Pet — but as it follows the same structure as other Flat Objects, we’ll still call it one for consistency. Say hello to the Flat Murray, based on one of the great loves of Wylie’s life — her pet Corgi (sorry Dylan!). Like his mom and dad, Murray has a flair for fashion, so these pups (and the badges associated with them) will be dressed to the nines. Read on to learn more!

Flat Murray Details

The Flat Murray 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 91 points with a minimum of 19 Points

CapOn: Split 91 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat Murray 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 Murray, which, as hinted above, feature some cute Corgi costumes and accessoreez. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy catching Flat Murrays and learning a bit more about Wylie in the process!

Put Pen to Paper — or Rather, Fingers to Keys — With Craig’s Flat Object!

At MHQ, we like to keep our players on their toes. We had quite a gap between the Flat Disc Golf Basket and the Flat Flashlight, and now, just over a month later, another new Flat Object?! Well, this month is National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo, so we couldn’t pass up this opportunity, as you’ll see! 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 fourth Flat Object is brought to you by Craig, the CEO! Don’t be intimidated by his title — Craig is one of the more outgoing members of the team who enjoys chatting with players at Munzee Events and learning what makes them tick (not that the rest of us don’t enjoy it — it just seems to come naturally to Craig, without any shyness or awkwardness). 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!

In his spare time, Craig turns to writing to give his creative juices an outlet. Did you know that he’s written plays that have been produced by theater companies?! It was definitely exciting for us to learn! For his Flat Object, he decided on a beloved symbol of writers everywhere — the Typewriter! Read on to learn more!

Flat Typewriter Details

The Flat Typewriter 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 86 points with a minimum of 19 Points (Maxwell Smart’s Agent Number)

CapOn: Split 86 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat Typewriter 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 Typewriter, which feature actual books and plays written by Craig. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy collecting all these written works and learning a bit more about Craig in the process!

Need Some Assistance? Call In The Pro-fright-ionals!

Would you believe we got the idea for these specials from a Dad Joke group? Once we heard the joke (“We all know Albert Einstein was a genius… But his brother Frank was a monster.”), we couldn’t pass it up, especially since we’ve already done a similar concept with Modern Myths! We hope you enjoy working with the Pro-fright-ionals! These specials are now live on the map for everyone and will remain available until October 31 at 23:59 MHQ.

Pro-fright-ional Details

There will be a total of 800 Pro-fright-ional Specials available for capture — that breaks down to 200 of each type. When you capture a Pro-fright-ional, you will earn 1 – 3 Candy Corn Credits! More Pro-fright-ionals may emerge if we feel that their Candy Corn Credit quota isn’t being met. Half of the Pro-fright-ionals will only land on physical munzees, while the other half will only land on virtual munzees, as you can see below:

Landing Pads:

Bounce Times:

  • every 4 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50

You can use the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters to more easily view them on the map. These are attracted to Physical or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. These are officially tPOBs on the Munzee account and are not blastable.

Badges

There are 5 badges related to Pro-fright-ional specials.

The first 4 are based on the total number of Pro-fright-ional specials captured. You can sneak a peek at the first of this badge line below:

Monstrous Mind!- Capture 1 Pro-fright-ionals special of any type.

The final badge requires you to capture at least one of each Pro-fright-ional. Since there’s only one badge in this line, we’d like to keep it a secret for now. Hopefully it shouldn’t be too tough to get!

We hope you’re willing to give these Pro-fright-ionals a chance — don’t let their monstrous looks scare you off!

Munzee on!
