Flat Objects: The Future of Flat Types!

Don’t get us wrong — we love all 4 of our Flat Friends! But not all of our staff members are comfortable with being flattened. To allow for expansion of the Flat type, we’ve come up with Flat Objects! Think of them as the Munzee version of totems (à la Inception) where the Flat Object is something seemingly ordinary but is near and dear to each staff members’ hearts.

The first Flat Object is brought to you by Dylan, our indispensable Creative Director! If you’ve been a Munzee player for a while now, you’ve most likely met him, or at least heard of him… but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know the man, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Dylan’s Flat Object is a throwback to simpler times, and tube TV tech! Say hello to the Flat DHS, stylized after VHS Tapes from the 80s and 90s. Dylan has a nose for nostalgia, so these tapes (and the badges associated with them) will give you an insight to some of his favorite flicks. Read on to learn more!

Flat DHS Details

The Flat DHS 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 94 points with a minimum of 19 Points

CapOn: Split 94 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat DHS 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 DHS, which, as mentioned above, feature some Munzee-fied versions of Dylan’s favorite movies. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy collecting Flat DHS tapes and learning a bit more about Dylan in the process!

Munzee on!

February 2021 GOTM Winners

This month our Valentines Card Collectors Club took center stage! We hope you enjoyed seeing each day’s featured Greeting Card, capping our Assorted Chocolates and Mythical Bandaidz, making the most of all the double point days, and receiving a few extra goodies to deploy as well! On top of that, we also celebrated our good fortune in getting 6 more weeks of Fr057y, welcomed the adorable Hamilton Hamzee, and introduced a new type of credit — Jewel Shards! We are now happy to announce the winners of the February Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early March, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

February GOTM

Since we’ve got Valentines on the mind all month long, we just couldn’t resist the LOVE-ly appeal of these winners! Remember that 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. This month we’re happy to award the Secret Valentine Garden, designed by Jeffeth, and the Folk CrossBow Garden, designed by Neloras, as our winning February GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Secret Valentine by Jeffeth in Ontario, Canada

A perfect secret message, as this garden will disappear from the map once you cap everything! (But isn’t that true for ALL gardens? Shhhhh)

Is it wrong to pick another ZeeOps-themed garden this month? We think not, especially if it complements our latest Secret ZeeOp, Operation: ZEEcret Admirer!

Folk CrossBow by Neloras in Bratislava, Slovakia

It might be hard to see against the grayish background of our web map, but the darker Joysticks guide your eye along the bowstrings!

We’ve received a few Crossbow-themed garden submissions in the past, but this one stood out due to its more complex design and increased variety of munzee types. Also, we felt it was fitting for February as it is our Special Delivery Cupid’s weapon of choice!

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.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!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

Munzee on!

P.S. Are you looking for POTM requirements? Remember that last year, we announced that we were holding off on POTM for now as we develop a new way to highlight our unique player base!

Virtual Reseller Unique Munzees Have Arrived!

As we are just about a month away from the 5th birthday of Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs), we thought it was time to bring this special munzee type into the virtual fold! Like the Physical RUMs, you will only see the pin image below on the map and in the summary panel that appears when you tap on the pin:

Also like the Physical RUMs, once you tap to view the Munzee Details, you will see a pin image containing the logo/branding of the reseller it came from. The resellers will be launching this product at their own shops within the next 24-48 hours, we just want you to have all the information in advance. You can get links to shop all of our resellers HERE! Edit and Update: The virtual RUM is special because it is the first scattering virtual that is also *blastable (able to be capped by using a blast capture).

The points for Virtual RUMs are as follows:

  • Capture: 35
  • Deploy: 40
  • CapOn: 30

Similar to the Cyborg Santa, when a Virtual RUM is captured 1-3 NEW Reseller Packages will be scattered nearby!

The Reseller Packages will be visible to ALL players, not just the player who capped the Virtual RUM, and will be deployed on the Virtual RUM owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers, there are CapOn points for the owner! The Virtual RUM will count for clan wars and ZeeOps RUMs requirements. However, these package scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Reseller Packages are as follows:

  • Capture: 25
  • CapOn: 20

There is a badge for deploying each different Virtual RUM. The badges appear similarly to the Reseller Package pin icons shown above! Additional badge lines are coming soon for cumulative RUMs captures/deploys that will include all physical and virtual RUMs!

We hope you enjoy these new Virtual RUMs! Just don’t get too tipsy!

Munzee on!

*Due to the unique nature of a blastable scattering virtual, the number of scattered packages may be reduced in the future to save server/DB power and speed. Additional tweaks may be made in order to maintain the integrity of the game while preserving the value of the gamepiece.

Secret ZeeOps- Operation: ZEEcret Admirer (February 2021)

Agents, as promised, we have a new Secret ZeeOp available in the ZeeOps Hub! This means that Operation: WatchE.R. will be removed soon. However, if you’ve already purchased Operation: WatchE.R., you will be able to complete it and collect rewards even after it is no longer available for purchase.

Do you think you can track down your ZEEcret Admirer and remain unscathed? If you complete ALL the missions in Operation: ZEEcret Admirer, you’ll receive the snazzy badge below, along with the Laser Artillery Submarine Eating Robot (L.A.S.E.R.) Shark Munzee (a link to more info below!) and various other rewards listed in the app!

There are 5 levels. Level 1 has 3 missions, and all subsequent levels have 5 missions. Each level ends with more prizes.

We may share this information moving forward with other Operations but possibly not.

L.A.S.E.R. Shark Details

The L.A.S.E.R. Shark is an all new tPOB similar to the Spyderbot! To keep this blog post at a reasonable length, you can read all about it HERE!

 

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.

Baby Owl Courier Critters Munzee
Physical MunzPak

  • Treehouse
  • Greenie
  • Water Mystery
  • Earth Mystery
  • Seasonal
  • Reseller Unique

  • Skyland
  • All Virtual Colors
  • Air Mystery
  • Post Office Places

Baby Stork Courier Critters Munzee
Hybrid MunzPak

While he’s not quite strong enough to deliver babies, he can handle the weight of Valentines! His long legs and wings allow him to cover greater distances — meaning he can reach more landing pads than the other two! This classic Courier Critter Munzee flies to the following:

  • Treehouse
  • Greenie
  • Water Mystery
  • Earth Mystery
  • Seasonal
  • Reseller Unique
  • Skyland
  • All Virtual Colors
  • Air Mystery
  • Post Office Places

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

Badges

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

Lastly, captures of these Courier Critters will contribute to progress towards its own Courier Critters badge line. You can sneak a peek at the first of these new badges below!

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

Munzee on!

January 2021 GOTM Winners

January is always a very strange month, as we’re playing catch up after the longest break of the year, but also have new things to release! Some of the things we were able to catch up on were: releasing the Phantom Flats and additional Retiremyths, the yearly leaderboard badges, the 10 millionth munzee, and Winter Tree Scatters! Some of the new things we released were: Egyptian Zodiacs, Garden Gnomes, Secret ZeeOps, SleepZees, Hamilton Hamzee, Motivational Message Greeting Cards, and most recently, the VCCC!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the January Garden of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early February, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

January GOTM

The gardens we chose this month reflect this simultaneous old and new state! Remember that 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. This month we’re happy to award the Night Vision Agent NIVY Garden, designed by Rikitan, and the Charlotte Electric Lightbulb Garden, designed by MrsHB31, as our winning January GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Night Vision Agent NIVY by Rikitan in Bratislava, Slovakia

Isn’t it clever how the Garden Places munzee was incorporated into the design?

The release of Secret ZeeOps and the Walkie Talkie Watch earlier this month made picking this garden a no brainer!

Rikitan shared his thoughts behind the design:

I fell in love with Zee Ops just in summer 2020, shortly before this side-game was paused for reconstruction.
Upon its return I was thrilled to see small daily challenges, which are easy and motivating to follow & keep going.
To celebrate this milestone, I created a small garden for all united agents of Bratislava, capital of Slovakia.

We’re also fans of how he went the extra mile in formatting the garden spreadsheet to fit the theme! We highly recommend that you check it out HERE!

Charlotte Electric Lightbulb by MrsHB31 in Charlotte, NC

Can you wish on a lightbulb? We hope that this new year is the start of a brighter future.

The Electric Mystery was released last year on March 18, 2020, right around the time things took a more serious turn. While it’s been almost a year since, we love how this garden features our (still) newest Elemental in a very fitting design! In addition, the nearby garden of Virtual Colors is well-placed and will make the most of the Charge scatters!

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.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!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

Munzee on!

P.S. Are you looking for POTM requirements? Remember that last month, we announced that we were holding off on POTM for now as we develop a new way to highlight our unique player base!

Event Spotlight: Munzee in the Park – Katandra West

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the Munzee in the Park – Katandra West event, which took place on January 9, 2021 at Katandra West, Australia and was hosted by Rubik80, SpySmurf, and SammyDiddly.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

Katandra West is a small rural community just out of Shepparton who recently got a brand new mobile phone tower which finally enabled us to host an event there (we had been asked to do so in 2018). We have created an event at their Recreation Reserve to promote Munzee and its benefits to the local community.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

When we host our Munzee in the Park events we have a number of considerations that we evaluate. Because we are representing both the game of Munzee and our local council, we try to make it fun, friendly and safe. For these reasons, we try to pair new players up with experienced players to show them the basics and also to create new friendships. We select our event location based on where we can create multiple walking circuits that have minimal risks (such as road crossings, uneven tracks or snakes) and allow people to choose how far they wish to walk based on their individual fitness or time constraints. It’s a bonus if food, toilets and first aid are available for participants also. In order to continue attracting players we try to create badges that reflect the unique characteristics of the communities we visit and make a bonus badge available if they attend all events in our Munzee in the Park series. If you get new players to attend, give them some physical munzees to get them started too!

What made your event unique?

For the last four years we have volunteered to host Munzee events on behalf of our local council’s Activities in the Park Program. The program provides a range of free and low-cost activities for Greater Shepparton residents and visitors, encouraging people to be outdoors, physically active and engaging with their community. We take Munzee to some of the smaller communities for a number of reasons, including:

  1. Greater access to activities for the people in the local communities because it reduces travel times and costs.
  2. It provides a small tourism boost.
  3. It builds the local Munzee map should they wish to become regular players.
  4. It increases awareness of Munzee across our community which in turn promotes acceptance of people “photographing power poles” which might otherwise look suspicious.

This year’s events are also unique because of the Covid-19 Safety measures we have to undertake.

The major focus of our Munzee in the Park events is to introduce new players to Munzee and in order to get the word out there we do quite a lot of promotional work on Facebook, local radio, newspaper and through our council publications.

Thank you to Rubik80 for being such a great host and submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!

NEW Secret ZeeOps!

Agents, back in August we emphasized our switch from Monthly to Daily ZeeOps, but we still wanted to have the opportunity to create separate Secret ZeeOps in the new ZeeOps Program at various times throughout the year. This is because the special ZeeOps we made for the 2018 Advent Calendar was so well-received, even by players who didn’t regularly participate in ZeeOps! We hope to bring back some of the magic by creating more themed Secret ZeeOps for you to undertake in the future!

Secret ZeeOp Details

Before you head to your ZeeOps Hub to check things out, please make sure you have the latest Over-the-Air (OTA) update! All you need to do is force-close/force-stop the app — the next time you launch Munzee, you should see a progress bar (depending on how fast your connection is, it may only appear for a short while) which means the latest version is being downloaded and installed!

To keep things simple for ALL players, we decided on making Zeds the currency of choice for these Ops. This is why we prioritized the release of the ZeeCred Exchange page, which allowed players who had accumulated ZeeCred from the old ZeeOps Program to get use out of that currency.

As these Secret ZeeOps will cost Zeds, they are guaranteed to have BIGGER rewards than the Daily Missions, which are free. To kick off this announcement, Operation: WatchE.R. is available now in the [Secret] tab of your ZeeOps Hub for a limited time! You can see a preview in the screenshots below:

Please note that as we plan to create new Secret ZeeOps throughout the year, Operation: WatchE.R. will only be available for a limited time. However, if you’ve already purchased Operation: WatchE.R., you will be able to complete it and collect rewards even after it is no longer available for purchase.

Unlike previous monthly ZeeOps that required you to schedule Operations and complete Missions within the span of a day, Secret ZeeOps can be completed as quickly or slowly as you would like. Just click on the Mission to view the requirements and accompanying story.  As you progress through the Missions you’ll learn more about the story and advance throughout the Operation. Do you think you can reveal the mystery of the missing Walkie Talkie Watch prototype?

If you complete ALL the missions in Operation WatchE.R., you’ll receive the snazzy badge below, along with the Walkie Talkie Watch Munzee (more info below!) and various other rewards listed in the app!

We hope you look forward to trying out Secret ZeeOps as they are available!

Edit with added info:
If you’re looking for the bullet points about this specific NEW Operation: WatchE.R. here they are…
There are 3 levels, level 1 has 3 missions, level two has 5 missions and level 3 has 7 missions. Each level ends with more prizes.
We may share this information moving forward with other Operations but possibly not.

Walkie Talkie Watch Details

The Walkie Talkie Watch is an all new Zeecret Weapon that will put you in contact with up to two Agents out in the field! Like all the other Zeecret Weapons, it is available as a reward for completing ZeeOps Operations!

Points

  • Deploy: 25
  • Capture: 50
  • CapOn: 35

When you capture a Walkie Talkie Watch, it will scatter 1 Undercover Agent nearby. You must rendezvous with that agent by capping it! Once capped, it has a chance of sending you to a Liaison Agent or ending your mission with “The trail has gone cold.” If the Liaison Agent is capped, it has a chance of giving you a Mini ZeeOp, like Dossiers and Infrareds.

The Agents will only be visible to the player who capped the Walkie Talkie Watch and will be deployed on the Walkie Talkie Watch owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet.

The points for Agents are as follows:

  • Undercover Agent
    • Capture: 100 points
    • CapOn: 100 points
  • Liaison Agent
    • Capture: 200 points
    • CapOn: 100 points

You can access Walkie Talkie Watches, Undercover Agents, and Liaison Agents by turning on their filter in “Physicals – ZeeOps”. Capping these new munzees will also contribute progress towards the overall Zeecret Weapon captures badge line!

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.

This message will self destruct in 3… 2… 1…
