Introducing the Classical AlternaMyth Wrangler Badge!

It’s been a while since the release of the Myth Wrangler, Classical Myth Wrangler, and AlternaMyth Wrangler badges, so it seems long past due that we introduce your next challenge!

We’re excited to announce that you’ll soon be able to earn the Classical AlternaMyth Wrangler badge for capturing all four Classical AlternaMyths in a single day!

The Fire Pegasus, Cherub Faun, Ogre, and Chimera are all hard enough to find on their own, but will you be lucky enough to cap them all in one day? Since these Alternative Versions of the four Classical Mythological Munzees are exclusively deployed by Freeze Tag team members, this badge is only for the most committed of Myth hunters.

You’ll want to do everything you can to increase your odds, so remember to utilize Munzee Magnets and Elemental Munzees. 

Please note that regular first generation Myths or AlternaMyths, Classical Myths, or Gen 3 Myths will not count toward this badge. The Classical AlternaMyth Wrangler badge IS NOT retroactive though. The badge will begin awarding at 00:01 MHQ time on Wednesday July 17, 2019.

This one won’t be easy to get, but we believe in you! Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Introducing the Flat Flyby Scatter Specials! (And the First 1,000 Point Munzee!!)

July 16-24 marks a historical period in time, as it is the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, the first manned mission to land on the Moon. To commemorate this critical moment in human history, Virtual Flat Shuttles will begin bouncing on Tuesday, July 16 at 00:01 MHQ time all the way until Wednesday, July 31 at 23:59 MHQ time!

Flat Shuttle Specials

Starting tomorrow, you will have the rest of the month to enjoy these brand new Flat Shuttle specials. The Flat Shuttle icons will bounce to the Flat Friends Munzees and regular Virtual Munzees every 6 hours or when capped and scatter our Flat Flyby Friends to Greenies. Flat Flyby Friends will scatter to Greenies within 1,000 ft of the initial virtual Flat Shuttle capture. 500 of these virtual specials will be bouncing around the map, and they will not be blastable.

Points

  • Capture: 69
  • CapOn: 19

You can increase your chances of capping the Flat Shuttle specials by using Virtual Magnets, available for purchase in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

Flat Flyby Friends

Each time a Flat Shuttle special is captured, one of each of the four Flat Flyby Friends —Flat Flyby Rob, Matt, Lou, and Hammock— will be scattered to a nearby Greenie for 6 hours or when capped. The Flat Flyby Friends will all be worth the same point values.

Points

  • Capture: 50
  • CapOn: 19

You can access these specials by turning on your All Expiring Specials and All Limited Edition Specials filters.

Badges

Capturing these specials will count towards Specials capture badges. They will also have their own line of badges for players to enjoy! There will be two capture badges to earn, for capturing any Flat Shuttle special and for capturing one of each of the Flat Flyby specials. The badges will appear as follows:

And that’s not all of the exciting news!

8 Mates Special

When the Shuttle Specials go live, we will also have eight “M8s” (pronounced “Mates”) enter the map as well! These physical bouncers will bounce to Greenies every 8 hours or until captured. They will remain on the map for the same duration as the Shuttle Specials, from July 16 at 00:01 MHQ time until July 31 at 23:59 MHQ time.

Ready to hear about the points?! Yes, you read the blog’s title correctly! This rare special will be worth a whopping points value, because birthday month really has us celebr8ing!

Points

  • Capture: 1,000 points + 8 PinPoints
  • CapOn: 108 points

You can access this very exciting special by turning on your All Expiring Specials and All Limited Edition Specials filters. Captures on the 8 Mates specials will count towards Specials Capture badges, as well as their own badge line. The 8 Mates specials will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets.

8 Mates Badges

There will be two badges to earn for capturing the 8 Mates specials based on number of captures. There are very few of the these specials bouncing around, so you’ll have to get really lucky if you want both! The badges will appear as follows:

We told you that July would be a GR8 month! Don’t forget that Magic 8 Ball munzees are still bouncing around until the end of the month as well, so there are TONs of specials to try for! Is this the most extravagant 8th birthday celebration that you’ve ever been a part of!? An entire month of fun, celebrations, and specials!

Munzee on!

Team USA Earns Gold for Coupe du Munzee Victory!

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!

Points:

  • Capture: 500
  • CapOn: 250

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.

Badge

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!

Munzee on!

Munzee’s Official Birthday Bash is Coming Up! (Plus New Tags!)

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:

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!

New Tags

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!

Munzee on!

New RetireMyths Set to Haunt the Map (Plus Zombie Pouch Creatures!)

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!

New RetireMyths

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!

Munzee on!

Big Map Plans for the InternationElles Munzee!

It’s July, which means it’s time for Louise and the InternationElles to make their pedaled protest to demonstrate the capability of women in cycling! In fact, today marks their very first day of riding! And with Freeze Tag sponsoring these fierce females and Rob joining Louise in France, we thought we’d take you along for the ride!

The InternationElles, pictured on July 4, 2019, are all geared up to bike for equality! (image via loukew, Instagram)

InternationElles Munzee

As Louise cycles the entire route of the Tour de France with the InternationElles one day before the men, Rob will be driving a support van and deploying in France. Rob and Louise will both be deploying virtuals and physicals throughout the Tour de France route, so we decided to make them special! Introducing the InternationElles Munzee icons!

Similar to the Whomp Canada and Wayward Nation munzees, these unique pins will feature special icons. Any greenie or virtual deployed by the InternationElles Munzee account will become the beautiful icons pictured above!

Points

  • Capture: Between 19-78, random
  • CapOn/Deploy: N/A

You can access the InternationElles pins under the Tourism filter. Although the InternationElle Munzees will only be available in France, these special pins will be permanently on the map! So if you’re planning a trip to France, be sure to check out a portion of the Tour de France route and cap an InternationElle Munzee!

You will be able to view all deploys as they start going live here: https://www.munzee.com/m/InternationElles/map/deploys/

Badge

Players will earn the following badge for capturing one InternationElles Munzee of any type:

Following Fierce Females

This will be a fun way to track Louise’s progress as she accomplishes great things for female athletes along with the InternationElles. We’re happy to share that our Flat Lou donations, pulled from Flat Lou sales, have covered the costs of van and helmet stickers! Thank you to all who purchased a Flat Lou in support of our cyclist wonder!

You can keep up with Louise and the InternationElles by following them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter! These ladies are accomplishing monumental things!

Go Louise, and Munzee on!

The full InternationElles team are together and ready to ride for equality! (image via internationelles, Instagram)

Coupe du Munzee Icon Updates!

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:

  • USA
  • Netherlands

Third and fourth place teams, 34 icons per team:

  • England
  • Sweden

20 eliminated teams, 1 icon per team:

  • Germany
  • Norway
  • France
  • Italy
  • Australia
  • Cameroon
  • Brazil
  • Spain
  • China
  • Japan
  • Nigeria
  • Canada
  • South Korea
  • South Africa
  • Jamaica
  • Scotland
  • New Zealand
  • Thailand
  • Argentina
  • Chile

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!

Have you earned all 7 Coupe du Munzee badges?!

Munzee on!

Your Future is Clear with the Magic 8 Ball Specials!

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:

Points

  • 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!

Munzee on!
