Munzee Toolkit Munzday: bonsaai

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help! This week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes from bonsaai!

Today’s featured Munzee Toolkit is brought to us by bonsaai, a player hailing from Alexandria, Louisiana. Bonsaai has been a player for over six and a half years, amounting more than 6 million points through his Munzee gameplay techniques. Let’s see what he carries in his Munzee Toolkit!

Bonsaai’s Toolkit

I knew I’d be traveling quite a bit, so I bought a large fishing tackle box to serve as a Munzee MotherShip, and to hold all the essentials! Which include:

Homemade Brass Tree Tags with stainless wire hangers

Good, sharp scissors

A mints tin for deploying on-the-go

Clean socks! (One never knows!)

Deodorant and cologne, too!

Munzee Referral Cards

Wasp and hornet spray

Mosquito repellant

Some self-printed munzees

All my MHQ official Generics, arranged by type, and written on the backing

Building Your Kit

What does a Munzee Toolkit look like? A good Munzee Toolkit contains many different compartments that make it easier to keep all of your munzees sorted. Below you can check out a Munzee Toolkit courtesy of MHQ’s own matthewmccann:

In addition to keeping your munzees neat and sorted, Munzee Toolkits such as this make for convenient ways to grab your munzees on the go in order to maximize deploy opportunities. In addition to the physical toolkit box, dedicated players sometimes choose to carry entire bags filled with a variety of handy items that can assist on your Munzee adventures. These items can include anything from packing sunblock for long days of capping and deploying to taking a black pen to help color in faded munzees to cap.

Extended In-App Language Features Are Here!

Hello! Ahoj! Hej! Szia! Hallo! Hei! Munzee is an international game complete with an incredible variety of players from all over the world. One aspect of the newest version of the app that we have been prioritizing is the extended language feature, and today we are happy to announce the inclusion of six additional languages in the Munzee app! 

As of the publication of this blog, we are thrilled to announce the addition of the following language options:

  • Czech
  • Danish
  • Hungarian
  • German
  • Dutch
  • Finnish

In addition to our latest language options, we also have a number of other languages being worked on as well. We hope to release these languages as soon as possible!

Ready to change your language? This very simple process can be done through the Munzee app! Since the update is over-the-air, as long as you have the latest version of the Munzee app, then the language options should automatically appear without needing to download any updates. You will need to force close the app to see the OTA update be installed.

Once you’ve logged into the app, go to your Settings option from the dropdown menu. In Settings you will see the option for languages, where you will be able to select from the seven current languages offered. Be sure to confirm your language switch by pressing “Reload” to apply the change. If you’re more of a visual learner, we put together this Help Guide article to walk you through the process!

Currently we are seeking player translation assistance for the following languages:

  • Lithuanian
  • Afrikaans
  • Portuguese
  • Malay
  • Russian
  • Italian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
  • French
  • Polish

If you would like to help us translate any of these language options, please email tamara@freezetag.com with the title “Translation Help.” Don’t see your language on the list, send us an email if you’re willing to start the translation project. A huge thank you to all the players who volunteered their time to help us translate the current language options so far!

We hope these language updates will show our international fanbase some love! We appreciate each and every player who helps make Munzee great!

Munzee on!

This announcement will be short and quite sweet, as we are happy to introduce the IRL Prize Wheel to the Munzee community! While many are familiar with trying their luck with the Prize Wheel Munzee, this brand new Prize Wheel exists in the real world! Yes, we’re talking about an actual Prize Wheel that lucky Bash attendees will have the opportunity to spin at upcoming events. But you’ll also have the opportunity to see the wheel in action from the comfort of your home!

Zodiac Updates and NEW Munzee Credits!

Ready for some fun updates?! Today we’re happy to announce Western Zodiac point updates, as well as brand new Chinese Zodiac and Mystery Munzee credits!

Point Updates

As Clan Wars Battle #78 commenced on September 3 at 00:01 MHQ time, the point values for Western Zodiac Munzees all made a permanent change. Like the Chinese Zodiac Munzees, the Western Zodiacs are now all worth 20 points for Deploy, Capture, and CapOn. Their permanent point change is now as follows:

  • Capture: 20
  • Deploy: 20
  • CapOn: 20

Keep in mind that these values will double based on the Zodiac’s specified monthly timeframe. For example, it’s currently Virgo season (August 23- September 22), so all Virgo Western Zodiac Munzee’s will now be worth 40 points during this timeframe. For players focused on earning Zodiac points for Clan Wars, the remainder of the month will see double points action on Libra (September 23- October 22).

New Credits

In addition to the Western Zodiac point updates, the Chinese Zodiac and Mystery Munzees will now be available as credits for the first time! Since there are multiple “active” Chinese Zodiacs at any time, the credit will randomly convert to one of the active types when it is used. Remember that the Chinese Zodiac Munzees are worth double points based on the Zodiac’s specified day of the week. If you need help converting a munzee using credits, be sure to check out our Help Guide article!

For the time being, these credits have been launched in the PinPoints store. Yesterday we gave players a heads up that PinPoints store items would be shifting, so you can now find these brand new credits available for PinPoints purchase! For a full selection of the current PinPoints store items, you can check out the PinPoints catalogue. Keep in mind that these products change on a rotating basis, so if you see something you like, don’t hesitate to use your points!

Whether or not you engage in Clan Wars, we hope these updates will add more fun to the game!

Munzee on!

LegaZeeOps- Operation: Star Studies (September 2019)

Agents, ZeeOps HQ’s system has been hacked and all of our files on past missions have been erased! You’ll have to recreate past Operations in what we’re calling LegaZeeOps. It’s up to you to keep the legacy of this organization in tact. The missions for this month are the same that were originally available in September 2017’s Operations.

Despite Director Zee’s return, little has been spoken regarding the First Clan’s ominous warnings of the war to come. The Director insists we must continue to focus on the work at hand, because peace is only temporary in this line of work.

Mysterious Zodiac symbols have begun showing up all across the world. It’s up to you to investigate and report back to HQ.

The Zodiac Munzees appear to be reactive to the stars and the time of year. Reports also suggest a masked vigilante is behind the ominous deploys. Be careful and if you come across this Zodiac Vigilante, do not engage until we can figure out his motives.

September 2019 ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Remember that if you hit a snag at any point in your Operation you can use the Mission Mulligan feature to keep going!

This month’s requirements are focused on Western AND Chinese Zodiac Munzees. You can learn more about Zodiac Munzees on the Munzee Help Guide. You can also pick up full sets of both Zodiac types for a discounted price this weekend only in the FT Store! Western Zodiacs might even be a bit more valuable in the near future too…

By completing any Operation this month you’ll also earn the new “LegaZeeOps- Operation: Star Studies” badge.

This month’s Missions are as follows:

LEVEL 1

Basic Training +- Earn at least 1,000 points.
Defensive Training- Deploy at least 10 munzees.
Offensive Training- Capture at least 25 munzees.
Zee Is For Zodiac I- Capture at least 10 Zodiac Munzees of any kind.
Zee Is For Zodiac II- Deploy at least 5 Zodiac Munzees of any kind.

LEVEL 2:

Group Training +- Earn at least 1,000 CapOn points.
Moon Watchers – Capture at least 12 Zodiac Munzees and deploy at least 6 Zodiac Munzees of any kind.
Star Crossed – Capture at least 24 Zodiac Munzees of any kind.
House of The Rising Son- Deploy at least 12 Zodiac Munzees of any kind.
Virtual Surreality- Capture at least 100 virtual munzees of any type.

LEVEL 3:

Advanced Training- Earn at least 10,000 points.
Always Aware- Deploy at least 50 physical munzees of any type.
Son Shine- Deploy at least 36 Zodiac Munzees of any kind.
Shooting Star- Capture at least 48 Zodiac Munzees of any kind.
Virtual Virus 2- Capture at least 250 virtual munzees of any type.

LEVEL 4:

Expert Training- Earn at least 50,000 points.
Dark Side Of The Moon- Deploy at least 100 greenies.
The Falling Star- Deploy at least 60 Zodiac Munzees of any kind.
Setting Son- Capture at least 84 Zodiac Munzees and deploy at least 36 Zodiac Munzees of any kind.
ZEEnith– Capture at least 250 physical type munzees.

Completing Operations will give you some hard earned rewards as well.

This month’s rewards are:

2 Virtuals, 2 Motel Munzees, 1 Hotel Munzee, 2 Virtual Colors, and 5 ZeeCred

Advanced:
2 Virtuals, 3 Motel Munzees, 2 Hotel Munzees, 1 Virtual Resort Munzee, 2 Virtual Colors, and 10 ZeeCred

Announcing August GOTM and POTM Winners!

The end of the month means it’s time for some well-deserved player recognition! We’re happy to announce the winners of our August Garden of the Month (GOTM) and Player of the Month (POTM) badges, as well as the criteria for September POTM, which just might include a special badge! 😉

August GOTM Winners

First let’s recognize some outstanding Virtual Garden builders! As always, 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! So if you organized or deployed in the Sunflower Garden, organized by wemissmo, or the Pegasus Garden, organized by zsomborpeto, then congratulations on earning August GOTM badges!! The winning August GOTM gardens appear as follows:

Sunflower Garden by wemissmo in Fort Myers, Florida

Of course a garden located in the Sunshine State would be the one to offer this cheerful bouquet of sunflowers that brings happiness to the map! 

Pegasus Garden by zsomborpeto in Szeged, Hungary

With the release of our Pegasus variants earlier this summer, we had to give this garden a win for its creative depiction of this mythological creature! 

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

Do you know a garden that is worthy of the September GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!

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.

August POTM Winners

August POTM called for player nominations, as players submitted their selections for players with ZeeQRew or QRew status who demonstrate their dedication to readily responding to munzees and keeping the map clean. We received several dozen nominations and couldn’t be more thrilled to give this badge to those players who help keep Munzee fun for all!

Scroll down to the end of the post to read the complete list of August POTM winners! A big thank you to all these awesome and active members of the Munzee community, and everyone who does their part to keep the map clean!

September POTM Requirements

To celebrate birthday month in July, we offered a brand new badge that any player could earn regardless of whether or not they had previously earned Player of the Month. Well, September has us pretty excited about MHQ Bash 6, so we decided to once again offer a unique POTM badge this month that any player is eligible to earn! But before you get too excited, you’ll have to meet the requirements to earn this badge:

Players engaged in September Clan Wars will now have an extra goal to aspire to, as any player who earns a minimum of 5,000 points from any Clan Weapon activity in September will be awarded this special badge at the conclusion of the month. That means that Clan Weapon Capture, CapOn, and Deploy points will all count towards earning this elite badge for September POTM.

Thanks for making August a great month for Munzee! We can’t wait to share all the fun that September has in store!

Munzee on!
