New MOB Specials Are Ready to Hit the Map!

Think you can handle a little more excitement? Since we announced the BETA launch of our PinPoints Loyalty Program, we have witnessed many players redeeming their hard-earned PinPoints for prizes of their choosing. We thought why not keep the celebration going with the introduction of our TWO PinPoints bouncing specials starting on May 10 at 00:01 MHQ time!

Both the physical and virtual PinPoints specials are Munzee Owned Bouncers (MOB) and they hit the map at midnight and stay on the map until May 20 at 23:59 MHQ time. You can learn more about each type below!

PinPoints Virtual Special

There will be a total of 50 PinPoints Virtual Specials. Even though there may not be as many as other specials they will be bouncing quick. The specials will bounce to all colors of regular virtuals every 4 hours or when captured. Each capture will reward you 100 points AND 2 PinPoints!

Points

  • Capture: 100 points and 2 PinPoints
  • CapOn: 10 points

The virtual special will not be blastable, but it will be attracted to Virtual Magnets from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can capture the virtual bouncing special on your own munzees and on munzees that you have already captured.

PinPoints Physical Special

A total of 200 PinPoints Physical Specials will be bouncing to greenies every 8 hours or when capped. You will earn 100 points and 5 PinPoints for every capture. This special will be attracted to Physical Magnets, and you can capture it on your own munzees or munzees you have already capped.

Points

  • Capture: 100 points and 5 PinPoints
  • CapOn: 15 points

You will also earn the following badge for capturing one PinPoints Special of any type. The badge will appear as follows:

PinPointer!- Capture 1 PinPoints Special of any type

PinPoints Are Ready to be Redeemed in Our BETA Launch! Use Yours TODAY!

Today we are very happy to announce that PinPoints are officially ready to be used for the first time! That’s right, all of your patience has paid off! The PinPoints that many of you have acquired through April Clan Wars, ZEEster Egg specials, Pimedus caps, and the current May Clan Wars can now be used for rewards in the Freeze Tag Online Store! As of the publication of this post, the BETA version of our PinPoints system is officially LIVE!

We’re so excited to share PinPoints with players, but since this is our first wide test of the system, please bear with us as everyone joins! Kindly keep in mind that there might be a slight delay in your points showing up immediately due to the influx of people creating accounts today. Fortunately this is only a temporary issue that will not affect future PinPoints delivery as they are earned.

For a basic breakdown of the PinPoints Loyalty Program, check out this video!

Before we reveal the remaining details of this exciting new program, we would like to thank all players for their patience throughout the PinPoints process. We understand that earning points without knowing the full nature of their value provided ample room for frustration. Hopefully the fact that many of you have already acquired PinPoints ready for use will justified this temporary inconvenience. We are constantly working to update Munzee and introduce positive new aspects to the gameplay experience to make it as fun and exciting as possible for our wonderful player community!

All About PinPoints

For those of you unaware, PinPoints are the credits players can earn as part of our brand new PinPoints Loyalty Program. They are also the new “store credit” that many players earned through April Clan Wars. PinPoints can currently be earned through Freeze Tag Online Store purchases, Clan War achievements, and certain munzee captures! We have plans to introduce additional ways to earn PinPoints in the near future.

PinPoints are redeemable for REAL products in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Eager to get started using them? We put together a comprehensive PinPoints Help Guide article to break down the process! The initial setup process involves a few steps, but once you set it up, it’s easy from there on out. Check out the Help Guide and this video to get your PinPoints account set up today!

We had the best of intentions of launching this program in April. Due to unforeseen delays, we have chosen to make some retroactive purchases count toward PinPoints. All purchases made in the Freeze Tag Online Store within the 3 days prior to setting up your account will earn retroactive PinPoints. The sooner you setup and link your account, the more possible PinPoints you can earn. However, please keep in mind that there might be an initial delay in these points showing up. Remember, any delay is temporary and simply due to an initial system overload.

Since this is a BETA launch, we’d like to ask for a bit of extra patience. Though it should take as little as a few minutes for your PinPoints to update, we kindly ask that for the time being you wait 24 hours before contacting support@munzee.com with any concerns regarding PinPoints earned. This will allow for any system overloads to be sorted out on their own so that the support inbox will not be flooded and player concerns can be handled in a timely manner. We thank you for your patience and understanding for any initial slowdown the launch might present!

PinPoints Rewards

We’re sure you’re wondering, just what can I buy with my PinPoints?! Ready to check out the awesome rewards? You can visit munzee.com/pinpointsrewards to see what is currently in rotation in the PinPoints store. Here you can also see what limits (if any!) there are on particular items. We will be updating the store on a semi-regular basis to remove certain items and add others, in order to provide exclusive shopping offers. The actual store pricing and availability is the final authority for all things as it may be updated quicker than the catalogue page.

Amongst many other reward options, players are able to redeem their PinPoints for Clan Weapon and ZeeCret Weapon munzees for the first time ever! Previously these items could only be earned through Clan Battles and ZeeOps Missions, respectively, so we are excited to offer more opportunity to acquire them through hard work! We know this will offer additional types on the map for capping fun around the world.

Another noteworthy feature of our PinPoints store is players may now earn an additional FIVE (5) of each Munzee Magnet type per month. This is on top of the normal 10 per 10 days limit! We hope this creates more opportunity for fun gameplay so that players can be rewarded for their noteworthy feats.

Think you can handle a little more exciting news? Perhaps you’ve noticed some new items in the store! They include a brand new Blast Capture 10-pack and Virtual Munzee 5-pack, which will now be available for PinPoints purchase! In addition, we will be launching a new item in the store as of the publication of this blog! You will now be able to purchase a Sapphire Munzee 5-pack! In other words, you can redeem your PinPoints for any of these three items or purchase them from the Freeze Tag Online Store and earn PinPoints for your purchases! 

In addition to the PinPoints Help Guide, we encourage all players to check out the PinPoints FAQ and the PinPoints Terms and Conditions for complete information about the PinPoints Loyalty Program. The FAQ page will continue to be updated as more questions come in, so be sure to check back regularly. Once again, we are so grateful for the continual player patience. We can’t wait to see players picking up prizes of their choice with their hard-earned PinPoints!

Stay tuned for more exciting PinPoints updates and the inclusion of new PinPoints store items. This is just the BETA launch of our PinPoints program, and we are so excited to share future updates! The future has many wonderful things in the works for Munzee and its players!

Munzee on!

If you are only a few captures away, fear not, because you will have until May 28 at 23:59 MHQ time to complete your captures for the chance to earn POTM in May!

QRewsday Schedule

Two weeks ago we announced the creation of QRew, and since then, many players have been reaping the benefits of QRewzee points as they work to help clean up the map. The QRewzee Munzee replaced the former Recycle Munzee, offering 100 Capture points and 10 CapOn points. However, the new icons will only appear on designated QRewsdays.

Munzee Mania

Flat Robs will be hitting the map this weekend, as real Rob will be out of office for Munzee Mania! This weekend long Minnesota event will see a whole host of Munzee players attending from Friday, May 3 to Sunday, May 5.

Munzee Mistakes: Introduction to ZeeOps and Clan Wars

After sharing a variety of tips that covered many aspects of gameplay, such as deploying and capping munzees, this week we’re exploring two areas of everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt that new players may be entirely unfamiliar with. We’re talking about ZeeOps and Clan Wars, which offer the chance for competitive gameplay with both yourself and others, respectively. Read on to discover more about Munzee competitive play and hear what tips and tricks fellow players have to share to help you enjoy all that Munzee has to offer!

Are you interested in competitive gameplay with yourself? ZeeOps might be the answer for you! Feel like a secret agent by taking on monthly Missions that range in difficulty levels and require a variety of Munzee skills to conquer. Complete your Missions within the required amount of time to unlock treasures! Every month new Operations will be released, including confidential information related to each month’s Mission. In order to start ZeeOps, you’ll need to earn some ZeeCred, which you can pick up in the Freeze Tag Online Store. You will be able to earn more credits through completing operations.

Is competitive gameplay with others more your speed? Join a clan and compete in monthly Clan Wars with members of your team! Clans are formed with ten players, with the opportunity to use the Clan Randomizer button to find a spot in a clan from 00:01 MHQ time on the first of each month through 23:59 MHQ time on the second of each month if you need help joining. Clan Wars criteria will be released at the end of each month for the upcoming month, with all Clan Battles starting on the third and lasting for the duration of the month. The monthly requirements will vary, but they largely include both individual and group components needed to be achieved in order to move up between the five levels. That means a clan is often only as strong as its weakest link, though many clans only aspire to reach a certain level each month.

Below are 32 tips offered by fellow players. Munzee may provide some fierce competition, but that doesn’t mean that plenty of players aren’t here to help every step of the way!

Clan Wars & ZeeOps Tips and Tricks

Tip #1: Take advantage of both Clan Wars and ZeeOps to earn credits and specials. Then place the munzees you earn near your home or work to increase your odds of attracting Bouncers. (KLC)

Tip #2: If you are a newbie to Munzee, don’t cap everything that is around you when you first start playing. You will need some convenient caps to meet the requirements for Clan Wars and for ZeeOps. (Bossmanlee)

Tip #3: Start “Clan Warring” and “ZeeOpsing” as soon as possible. It’s easier to fill requirements before you’ve capped everything in your city. Plus you’ll get credits to make your area more appealing to other players. (Aukush)

Tip #4: For ZeeOps, start with the Cadet level. It is fun and easy and a great way to introduce you to Ops and how it works. Plus you get enough ZeeCreds from completing the operation to try a Basic Level! (5Star)

Tip #5: If you’re doing a level 2+ ZeeOp and one of the available missions of the month is to have 500 or 1,000 cap-on points, schedule that on a Saturday or Sunday. That’s when most people are capping munzees (either at events or on their own). (pikespice)

Tip #6: Set a reminder for ZeeOps so you don’t forget. (qdog)

Tip #7: I love ZeeOps, because you can do some little personal challenges each day and get credits for them! I add the daily requirements to my reminders on my calendar so I don’t forget. (jellybean88)

Tip#8: Always wear sunglasses while doing ZeeOps… this makes you feel like a secret agent. 😎 (Jerzee)

Tip #9: Cluster your deploys — have pockets of jewels, zodiacs, elementals, etc. This will help attract players doing ZeeOps! (Leese Philip)

Tip #10: If you wonder how to try a longer operation or use the Mission Mulligan in the very beginning, you can win ZeeCreds on Prize Wheels, and you get some each month as a gift for being Premium Member. (xwusel)

Tip #11: If you are able, attend events to meet some friendly faces and have a chance to learn more about the game. Bonus tip: participate in some basic ZeeOps to earn a fun variety of new munzees to deploy. (beckiweber)

Tip #12: Remember that there is the Mulligan whereby you are allowed to fix one day’s failed operation at the cost of 25 Zeecred. But this doesn’t apply for the last day of the mission! (stebu)

Tip #13: You can win ZeeCreds by capping Prize Wheel Munzees. (BrianMoos)

Tip #14: Remember that Clan Wars don’t start until the 3rd day of the month. If you are doing a ZeeOp and are in a clan, you can consider not starting your ZeeOp before the 3rd. There is no reason for all the ZeeOps hard work to go to waste and not do double duty and count for the clan as well. (3Blanchards)

Tip #15: Consider joining a clan. It makes you part of a team with a common goal, and it teaches discipline when capping so you don’t just go around capping everything. (fsafranek)

Tip #16: Try to join a clan! Clan members are a mine of information and encouragement. Joining a clan also helps you realize that many other quite normal people enjoy scanning lampposts! (Thegenie18)

Tip #17: Join a low level clan to start. (TheFoods)

Tip #18: Join a clan and have a clan group chat page! It really helps all clan members with things like deploying virtuals near clan mates. It is great to have help with all things Munzee and have a general Munzee chat with fellow players. (lolbot)

Tip #19: Join the Munzee team sport that is Clan Wars. Once you understand the requirements, don’t cap everything in a 10 mile radius in your first week! (Section42)

Tip #20: In Clan Wars, if CapOn points are counted that month, consider focusing on capping the munzee’s deployed by your teammates to help their points increase as well. This will help the overall points of the clan. If you live in an area with few munzees, encourage your team to build the map locally so all will have points to obtain. This will also attract new and traveling players. (FindersGirl)

Tip #21: Not all clans aspire to reach Level 5, but different clans have different goals. Be ready to do 1/10 of the requirements before committing to a certain level in a clan, unless you agreed otherwise. (halizwein)

Tip #22: Choose a level in Clan Wars that you are comfortable playing to keep it fun. (YMHgra)

Tip #23: For Clan Wars, pick what level you can complete 10% of clan goals and what level you can complete just the personal requirements, and let potential clans know both levels you feel comfortable with. Some clans may not care if you can do 10%; others may require it. (technical13)

Tip #24: You can find a clan suitable for your level in the Facebook group “Munzee Clan Transfer Market.” (Justinas Rumcikas) 

Tip #25: At the end of the day, remember that you are playing a game. Yes, people can get competitive, and it’s fun to win, but it’s more important to enjoy yourself and celebrate small victories when you’re engaging in Clan Wars or ZeeOps! (violetblonde)

Tip #26: Get above your individual requirements to help your clan mates if you can! Remember you are playing with a team. (Faby)

Tip #27: If you run a clan, create a Facebook page for easy communication. If you join a clan with a Facebook page, make sure you join the page as well to keep up with clan requirements. (Orky99)

Tip #28: Be social on Facebook and with your clan mates. Your fellow players will be glad to help you meet your goals. (Kermit450)

Tip #29: Communication is key. Talk to your clan mates! (Sportytaxi)

Tip #30: Once you have chosen your Clan Wars Level, communication is the key! A number of clans have set up a private Facebook group to facilitate good clan communication. (EagleDadandXenia)

Tip #31: For Clan Wars, having clan mates in different areas can help with clan POB, TOB, and MOB requirements. (Belboz)

Tip #32: Play the game the way you like it. Whether you do Clan Wars or ZeeOps, deploy only physicals or only virtuals, that is up to you. Start the game the way you like it most, and if you still enjoy it after a month or so, branch out deeper into the game. It can be overwhelming if you try to learn it all at once. (Reart)

Quick PinPoints Update!

Calling all Clans!

If you were paying attention you may have seen a test screen teased this afternoon, but remember patience is a virtue!

We know you’re all excited to learn more about PinPoints and what they mean for Clan Wars requirements in May. It also applies to one of your rewards (in store credit) from April Clan Wars. We’ve put together an FAQ about various aspects of this new loyalty program, which can be found on the Munzee Help Guide. We’re not revealing everything just yet, but this should hopefully give you an idea of what to expect.

Check out the PinPoints FAQ here:
https://munzee.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360027745271-PinPoints-Loyalty-Program-FAQ 

We had every intention of launching this program earlier in April, but unfortunately third party issues out of our control have caused some rather unexpected delays. We want to make sure this launch is a success though so we’re taking every step to make sure it’s ready for you all!

Thank you for your patience, we hope the competitive spirit of Clan Wars along with this new reward system drives another great month!

May Resolutions Badge Details

How has 2019 been treating you so far? If it hasn’t been your year to shine, fear not, because there are still eight months left for positive growth and change! Our monthly Capture Streak Badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement, bringing us the resolution to eat healthy (January), make new friends (February), explore new hobbies (March), and get organized (April). Summer is fast approaching on the Northern Hemisphere, and our May Resolutions badge is to travel more!

Each month’s badge is dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Each month provides the opportunity to put your best foot forward, so if you’re new to the game or accidentally missed a day, there’s no time like the present to get started on your streaks!

Traveling Tips

Many people plan to travel, but then this crazy thing happens. Life gets in the way. Traveling can be a financial burden for many, and big vacations can often take years to plan and save up. However, you only get one life to live, and that life should be filled with happy adventure! Traveling doesn’t have to mean flying around the world; it can involve simply getting into your car and driving to a town nearby that you haven’t explored. It can even involve venturing to new places in your town!

Break the routine of prosaic living and allow yourself the chance to experience more of what the world has to offer. Traveling allows for the chance to experience new walks of life, expand your perspective, and meet new people along the way. Learn how to travel the smart way with budget friendly tips. Rather than rent expensive hotels, take advantage of room renting services, such as Airbnb, to save money. This will also allow you the opportunity to select lodging with a kitchen so that you can save money on dining out! Shopping local and preparing meals will save you a lot of money while away from home.

Many plan vacations for the summer, but traveling in the off-season is almost always a guaranteed way to save money. You can also cut down on expenses by traveling with friends or family, in order to split costs, or by traveling to where you know people. Though you might be tempted to stop for mementos, gift shops and general shopping should be avoided in order to save big bucks. The memories you make should be more than enough, and the less you purchase, the more you’ll be able to travel in the future. Lastly, always try to do some online searching pre-trip to scout out the best deals in the area you’re heading to.

Still don’t think you’ll be able to squeeze a trip in? Luckily you still have Munzee, a real world scavenger hunt that is all about exploration! Remember you can always set up Trail Munzees to lead other players down paths worth exploring in your neighborhood!

Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

Earth Day Flash Sale and Planet Protection Tips!

Happy Earth Day from MHQ! To celebrate the day, we’re offering 22 percent off on all Earth Mystery Munzees for Earth Day, starting today at 15:00 MHQ time and lasting until 15:00 MHQ time tomorrow. You can stop by the Freeze Tag Online Store to shop this sale, and check out our Elemental Mystery Help Guide article for more information about Earth Mystery Munzees.

Last year, we had the pleasure of working with players to help plant 10,000 trees through the Earth Day Network‘s Canopy Project thanks to our Earth Day fundraiser! Players helped raise the money to accomplish this awesome feat through the sale of Earth Day Evolution Munzees and Earth Day personal tags. It was our pleasure to work with players to assist the goals of the Canopy Project, an organization that focuses on strengthening communities through tree planting.

With so many exciting projects in the works, we unfortunately didn’t have the time to plan any Earth Day fundraisers this year. However, we would still like to take the chance to share simple everyday ways you can improve and preserve our wonderful planet. Munzee is a real world scavenger hunt, and Freeze Tag places great value on preserving the outdoors and protecting the Earth. We love hearing about how eco-friendly so many of our players are, and we hope the following tips can help raise awareness about how to care for our planet!

20 Tips for Protecting the Planet: 

1. Follow in the footsteps of our Worldwide Events Manager Louise and bike more, drive less!

2. Cut down on meat and animal product intake. This doesn’t mean going vegetarian or vegan, just reducing the amount of animal products you consume. Try to have a weekly “vegetarian day” to dramatically reduce the amount of natural resources used to produce meat.

3. Reduce, reuse, recycle! This mantra should be a lifestyle. Be wary of the amount of waste you accumulate.

4. Plant a tree! This is a simple yet impactful way to improve the planet.

5. Purchase second hand items to reduce packing materials while also saving your money.

6. Be mindful of the products you use. Choose non-toxic chemicals so that you aren’t polluting the waterways.

7. Don’t waste paper products. Be conscious of how many tissues or napkins you take and how much paper towel and toilet paper you use. Only select as much as you need. Additionally, try to keep your business paperless and don’t waste notepads. Remember to recycle paper products.

8. Recycle your newspapers and junk mail. Rather than throw away unwanted or used paper items, such as newspapers and junkman, recycle them. You can also look into cancelling unwanted newspaper services and junk mail subscriptions.

9. Invest in energy efficient lightbulbs to cut down on greenhouse emissions, and be mindful of how many lights you leave on.

10. Be sensible about how you do your laundry. Consider using a clothesline to save power while drying your clothes. (This will also help them last longer!) Wait until your laundry is full to wash. Avoid doing half loads of laundry, and consider switching to a warm cycle rather than hot.

11. Be a smart shopper! Carry reusable bags wherever you go. Just say no to plastic.

12. Shower more, bathe less. Baths can be relaxing, but try to cut down on time spent in the tub since baths use approximately twice as much water as showers.

13. Conserve your water usage. The less water you use, the less wastewater will end up in the ocean.

14. Cut down on shower time. As little as two minutes of reduced shower time can make an enormous difference in water conservation.

15. Buy local produce when you are able to in order to cutdown on pollution that occurs when transporting goods long distance.

16. Get involved in community cleanups. Volunteer work is invaluable to Earth conservation.

17. Save your energy use (and cut down on your energy bill) by adjusting the temperature in your home and using a timer system for when you are out.

18. Use a travel mug for your daily beverage. This is an easy way to cut down on waste every day.

19. Pay your bills online to reduce the amount of paper waste you acquire. You can also cancel your paper bank statements and work on staying digital.

20. Educate those around you in a friendly manner. Help them understand why it’s important to value natural resources and how they can do so.

Thanks to National Ocean Service and 50 Ways to Help for helping us compile these important tips!

Happy Earth Day, and Munzee on!
