Towel Day 2018 Specials

DON’T PANIC.

We’ve got a new special in celebration of the fandom holiday Towel Day! On May 25th each year fans of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy” series carry towels in remembrance of author Douglas Adam’s work. Why towels you may ask? Well in Adam’s own words “A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value… More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value.”

Since we like to celebrate things a bit early, starting May 18th at 00:01 MHQ time 1,979 Munzee Towel Day Specials will be on the map until May 27th at 23:59 on . These specials will bounce on greenies every six hours or when capped. As we all know, a towel with a “Thumbs Up” is the universal symbol for intergalactic hitchhikers, so when you cap a Munzee Towel Special three Hitchhiker Specials will be scattered to greenies within a 1/2 mile for 2 hours or when capped. Better pick up those hitchhikers before somebody like a Vogon or a pair of mice does. That would be unfortunate.

Points: 

Towel Day Special:
Capture/Cap-On: Split of 42 with minimum of 5.

Hitchhiker Special:

Capture: 21
Cap-On: 21

You’ll earn a badge for capturing one of the Towel Day Specials, but we’re going to keep the artwork a surprise because it’s THAT COOL. How cool? So cool that it will definitely live up to the hype. What could possibly go wrong with hyping up artwork that has certainly already been completed?

Towel Day Specials will be attracted to Munzee Magnets so be sure to stock up on those in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

You CAN capture these specials on your own greenies and both Specials will count toward the Specials Hunter badges as well.

Good luck on your travels and remember to bring a towel. #MunzeeOn #TowelDay2018

UK Events Reminder

Howdy, everyone!

We just wanted to remind you that Rob and Louise will be attending two events this weekend in the UK (this one and this one)! They will also be taking a trip to cap the newest Emerald Garden in Richmond Park on Friday. There are still plenty of Emerald Pins available in the Freeze Tag Online Store and time to get one before they get capped!

There is also a growing number of Flat Lous in the area, so make sure to add your own. Flat Robs and Flat Lous are both currently active on the map and Flat Matt will be active on Saturday!

We hope you’re having a great week, and we look forward to announcing some fun new things soon!

Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Becky Forsythe (rgforsythe)

As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Becky Forsythe (rgforsythe).

Who are you?
My player name is rgforsythe. My real name is Becky Forsythe.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Battle Ground, Washington USA.

How long have you played Munzee?
My sister downloaded the app on my phone in January 2013 because she was playing, but he phone went dead. In the process, she made me an account, but I didn’t start playing for nearly two years. I stated playing January 13, 2015. I think my cap streak goes from that day, also. I get hooked so easily.

How did you find Munzee?
I injured my Achilles tendon and couldn’t do anything but sit around, so I started cleaning up my phone and saw the app that my sister had downloaded nearly two years earlier. I opened it and started capping things. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing, and of course it was on my sister and brother-in-law’s account, so I immediately got them banned for playing on two devices that were 4,000 miles apart. Once we got everything straightened out, I started to play. It took a long time for my leg to heal, so walking short distances to cap was a perfect recovery and gave me a reward when I actually found a munzee to cap. It is much better now.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I like hand capping because that way I continue to walk with purpose. If I have time, I will even hand cap a virtual garden just because I like to. Other things I like a whole lot are the new people I have met from around the world and the good times I spend with family and friends on Munzee expeditions. I recently got to attend a Go Green Event in Budapest, Hungary. Everyone there was so great, and it really didn’t matter that I didn’t speak an Hungarian. Players helped anyway they could — some by pointing, other by speaking English to us. I also like that the game moves at a god pace and that it keeps changing and growing.

What is on your wish list?
I would like to see a way to help long-time players feel like they can still play in Clan Wars without traveling. It seems like more and more I hear long time players concerned about cap points because they have capped everything within 20 miles of their home. This month (April 2018) is great because of all of the recycles. And as long as I am wishing, I would also like to see an Emerald Garden in Delta Park, Portland, Oregon.

Tell us about yourself!
My husband (amadoreugen) and I play Munzee together. We are both very competitive people, so this has been a friendly source of rivalry for us both. We also love to travel and are fortunate to have played in over 25 countries. We have a lifestyle of long distance walking and have documented more distance than the distance around the world at the equator. We particularly enjoy one of our personal goals: to walk all of the National Trails of Great Britain. I think we have completed 8 so far, so we might run out of energy before we get done.

Other Hobbies Include:
Besides my love for walking, I love glass and beads. I have a tiny lampwork studio that doubles as a work shop for other jewelry component making, particularly glass fusing and metal work that I sell to local jewelry makers. Nothing valuable, but a nice creative outlet for me.

I own a small business selling ceramic beads that are imported from Kenya. This supports a project that was started by an amazing woman 40 years ago to provide salaried employment for women in Nairobi so they do not need to live in the slums any longer. The beads are beautiful, and I usually sell them at trade shows, but as any business person knows, I am always willing to sell to anyone at any time. I make custom jewelry orders for customers out of these beads too.

Any last words?
I want to thank the person who nominated me as Player of the Week and also all of the players for continuing to cap my deploys. I also want to thank the hard workers at MHQ for everything they do to make my day a little happier and a lot more fun. Please keep up the good work; you are all such creative thinkers. Jibby!

rgforsythe also included some socials, so cap away!

Custom Coexist Collection for GeoWoodstock!

Howdy, everyone!

Rob and Matt will be heading to GeoWoodstock 16 in Cincinnati at the end of the month. In the spirit of coexisting, we’re releasing a Custom Coexist Campaign Collection for players attending GeoWoodstock this year. This collection includes a custom t-shirt, a (special) custom referral card, and a Personal Munzee for $15.00 (plus tax).

While we aren’t releasing the full design quite yet, we wanted to show you the “promoter” sleeve that will be available for these specific shirts. You must be present at the Munzee GeoWoodstock event on May 25th (more details to come) to pick up the collection. No collections will be shipped, and other players cannot pick up your collection for you (unless you miss Friday night and get it Saturday morning). MUST PICK UP IN PERSON…NO EXCEPTIONS. Clear enough? 😉 Don’t order if you are not going to be there.

You must order by Thursday, May 17th at 10:00 MHQ time.

After GeoWoodstock, a worldwide Coexist Collection t-shirt will be made available in the Freeze Tag Online Store. (More information will be available regarding that after the event.)

We hope to see you at GeoWoodstock coexisting with us!

Munzee on!

Ready To Ride with Flat Lou?

UPDATE: Flat Lou is now for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Go HERE to get yours! 

Our Flat friends, Flat Rob and Flat Matt, have become a staple of the game and we’re excited to announce a certain flat female is joining their ranks- say hello to Flat Lou!

Three years ago Louise Gibson took over the management of our worldwide player run events. She streamlined the process, improved communication, and provided excellent customer service around the clock in her first few weeks. Over the course of her three years Louise has interacted with hundreds of different player hosts, managing over 1500 unique events.  After three years as an extraordinary Events Manager, she has more than earned her spot among her two-dimensional pals.

The first Flat Lou will be released as a permanent special at Tower Bridge in London, England on May 1st at 15:00 MHQ and they’ll go on sale at the same time in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Flat Lous work much like the other Flats, but there are some differences.

As a not-so-flat-footed cyclist, Flat Lous will be activated at various times including when Louise is racing, when she attends Munzee events, major event seasons and more. Please note that all scheduled times are based on MHQ time and are subject to change. To start things off with a bang though, Flat Lous will be active for the entire month of May.

Another thing that makes Flat Lou so special is that she helps give back too! In connection to Freeze Tag’s sponsorship of the American Diabetes Association, $0.25 of each Flat Lou sale will be donated to ADA to help diabetes research and awareness. Flat Lous will also be active during each Tour de Cure race weekend throughout the year as well.

Flat Lou virtual pieces will be for sale in the Freeze Tag Online Store tomorrow for $4.25, and there will also be a limited amount of the Flat Trio design Personal Munzee tags too. Premium members can also expect a free Flat Lou tomorrow at 17:01 MHQ as well. You can sign up for a Premium Membership at HERE.

Here is the general breakdown of Flat Lous:

Points:

Deploy – 19 Points
Cap/CapOn – Split 78 points with a minimum of 10 points.

Proximity: 

Flat Lous’ proximity is not affected by other munzees except other Flats. Flat Lous must be 50ft from other players’ deploys and 150ft from your own deploys.

You’ll also be able to earn a variety of badges for capturing and deploying Flat Lous.

Deploy Badges:

Capture Badges:

We’re also excited to announce that we’re launching a new emerald garden at Louise’s favorite training site- Richmond Park in London! The roads around the park even make a pin shape too! Check out the map HERE. You can purchase one of the emerald garden pins, Flat Lous, and personal tags in the Freeze Tag Online Store tomorrow, May 1st at 15:00 MHQ.

The ceLOUbration continues around the world with special player-run Louise Gibson Appreciation Society (LGAS) events throughout May. These events have been entirely set up by player hosts to show their appreciation for Louise’s event management efforts. Find the LGAS events on the Munzee Calendar page, and let them know if you’d like to join in the fun!

Thank you all for showing our Flat friends so much love! We know Flat Lou will make a great addition to the family. Munzee on!

ZeeOps: May 2018 Missions

Since the last issue with the Evo Munzees, Director Zee has ordered a halt on all further development. Unfortunately during the Zodiac Vigilante’s Evo antics earlier this year, the shape shifting creatures are still roaming the world. We must continue our efforts to monitor and capture Evos.

The Zodiac Vigilante has revealed that the First Clan and The Rising Sons are collecting Evos for their own nefarious schemes. Although the masked man has been holding them off on his own, he has turned to ZeeOps HQ for aid. Be weary though, his allegiances are his own, which is both good and bad.

We’re happy to announce that we’ve added some items to the Online Store: (more) Personals, Emeralds, and (new) Places, or PEP!

Personals

We’ve added two new Personal Munzee dog tag designs: Throwback Mom Tattoo and ZeeCret Weapons.

Both of these are printed on aluminum dog tags, and are available now for $10 each. (Only one of each design per account.)

Emerald Pins

Following the Go Green events, we have a limited number of Emerald Garden Pins remaining. We’re offering these for purchase to finish the gardens that have been released. When purchased, an Emerald Munzee will be automatically deployed into one of these gardens. Will yours land near the newly added Tour de Cure event in Seattle with coachV? See the map of all current emerald gardens here!

Emerald Garden Pins are available for $10, and you can purchase one per account per day, while supplies last.

Places Munzees

We’re happy to announce that we’ve extended the line of Places Munzees! Along with the current Places, we’ve added:

  • First Responders: to be placed at stations of First Responders (Fire Departments, Police Stations, etc)
  • Faith: to be placed at places of faith (churches, synagogues, mosques, etc)
  • Historical: to be placed at historical buildings and venues
  • Libraries*: to be placed at public libraries

*Note: Libraries are not available for purchase yet. Their release information will be available soon.

All of these new Places Munzees have a 1000ft capture radius, can be captured daily, and are not capturable via Blasts. Reminder: Once submitted for deployment, Places Munzees must be verified by MHQ. Please allow up to 2 business days for approval before emailing support. You will receive an email with approval or rejection with a reason. Please see all details about Places Munzees in our help manual.

These new Places Munzees are available for $10, and you can purchase one of each type per account every 30 days.

We hope you enjoy these new items!

Munzee on!
