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!

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the other RetireMyths, these game pieces will join the map once any Myth owned by an Inactive or Retired account has been archived.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!

Pegasus and Faun Myth Variants Join the Map!

Update: The blog has been updated on 6/28/19 to reflect the addition of the virtual Krampus Faun Myth Variant. 

Whether you’re soaring into summer or experiencing the winter chill, our brand new Mythological Munzee Variants are here to season your map! Starting at 15:00 MHQ time today, you’ll be able to upgrade both the Pegasus and Faun Mythological Munzees into four new variants! We’ve also restocked certain Player Owned Bouncers in the Freeze Tag Store so click HERE to get yours!

Much like AlternaMyths, the Mythological Munzee Variants are twists on the original Myth types that allow them to bounce to other types of munzees. These variants are only available to Myths that have been “Upgraded.*” You can shop our restocked Mythologicals in the Freeze Tag Online Store for a limited time only. We’ll also be adding Pouch Creatures to the store, but they won’t be around for long! Click the link HERE to pick yours up before they’re gone, and be sure to get your Bouncer Upgrade Credit!

All four of our new variants will have the same point values:

  • Deployment: N/A
  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points

Lastly, before we dive into the new variant details, the Pegasus Myth will also be getting a point increase effective now! The Pegasus Myth will now be worth the regular 200 points for a Myth when captured, as well as 250 deploy points! Now on to the new variants…

Griffin Pegasus

This amalgamation of an Eagle and a Lion soars majestically! This variant of the Pegasus Mythological Munzee flies to the following:

Alicorn Pegasus

The horned Pegasus is ready to take flight! This variant of the Pegasus Mythological Munzee flies to the following:

  • Virtual Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees
  • Shamrock Munzees

Centaur Faun

The warrior of the woods is ready for battle! This variant of the Faun Mythological Munzee trots to the following:

Krampus Faun

The frightening friend of Father Christmas will give you chills! This variant of the Faun Mythological Munzee sleds to the following:

Upgrading Your Myth

Once your Myth is upgraded with the Bouncer Upgrade Credit, you can convert it to a new type similar to how you would convert any other type of munzee. Remember that you can only convert a Myth Variant once, and after a Myth has been changed, it cannot go back. Previously known as the Myth Upgrade, the Bouncer Upgrade Credit also allows for the opportunity to “nudge” your Myth to a new munzee up to three times a day in the MHQ 24-hour day after it has sat for three hours. Plus it gives you the opportunity to rename your Myth to something personal and creative!

Points for Variant Myths will remain the same. Variant Myths will also continue counting toward their specific Myth badges just like normal. The only thing that changes with an Upgrade is what it bounces to, as well as a new capture icon in the Specials list.

The new Pegasus and Faun variants join the Unicorn, Fairy, Leprechaun, Mermaid, Dragon, and Yeti Myth Variants. Which variants do you hope to see next? And which variant will you be upgrading to today? Let us know on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

Munzee on!

*The Fairy and Mermaid Mythological Munzee Variants do not require a Bouncer Upgrade Credit to be upgraded.

Personal Munzee Gameplay Update

Happy Friday! Today we’re announcing a slight update to how personal munzees operate. Previously the owners of a personal munzee were able to deploy up to 3 times per day in new locations by scanning the munzee in the location they wanted to deploy it, leaving the munzee open for capture up to one mile away. You are now able to deploy your personal munzee up to 10 times in a day!

Deploying a personal munzee multiple times in a day allows for players to deploy at events and then walk around the area while still being able to have their personal munzee captured. As a reminder, personal munzees are exempt from proximity rules, so there can be deployed anywhere you wish up to 10 times in a day now.

You can pick up your own personal munzees from the Freeze Tag Online Store!

Munzee on!

Introducing the Banshee Mythological Munzee!

What’s all that wailing about?! Cover your ears, because our latest Mythological Munzee is shrieking her way into the game!

Beware the Banshee

The Banshee Munzee is based on the wailing widow of Irish Folklore and will be available for purchase on March 15 at 10:00 MHQ time. Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day! You can find the Banshee Munzee bouncing around on Greenies, Shamrocks, Black Virtuals, and Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured.

Each Banshee Munzee is numbered and will be owned by a player. You can pick yours up for a limited time from the Freeze Tag Online Store for $15! Just be sure to set your reminders for 10:00 MHQ time tomorrow to snag one before they sell out!

The sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership. Only ONE (1) Banshee Munzee is allowed per account. (But don’t worry, this wailing widow won’t let you leave her!)

At a more affordable price point, the Banshee will work a bit differently than other Myths that have recently been released. The Banshee Munzee will NOT include the ability to nudge or rename. However, you will be able to use a Bouncer Upgrade Credit to give her nudge and renaming abilities. Upgrading your Banshee will give it the ability to land on Green Virtual Munzees. This new upgrade feature will make it more likely to capture, with 10 additional colored virtual landing pads. You can find the full list of what it bounces to below.

The upgrade credit will also give you the ability to “nudge” your Banshee Munzee to a new munzee up to three times a day, following the MHQ 24-hour day, after it has been on its host Munzee for at least three hours. This nudging ability is only available for the owner via the munzee’s webpage and is not available in the app.

Your munzee will still retain its unique number, but feel free get creative when it comes to renaming your Banshee Munzee! (Know any wailing women in your life you want to immortalize?) Just be sure to follow the Player Code of Conduct, and remember Munzee maintains a family-friendly environment.

Banshee Munzees will land on:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrocks
  • Air Mysteries
  • Black Virtual Munzees
    • Virtual Timberwolf Munzees
    • Virtual Silver Munzees
    • Virtual Gray Munzees
    • Virtual Black Munzees
  • *Green Virtual Munzees (*ONLY if upgraded)
    • *Virtual Sea Green Munzees
    • *Virtual Granny Smith Apple Munzees
    • *Virtual Green Munzees
    • *Virtual Forest Green Munzees
    • *Virtual Asparagus Munzees
    • *Virtual Olive Green Munzees
    • *Virtual Yellow Green Munzees
    • *Virtual Green Yellow Munzees
    • *Virtual Spring Green Munzees

Are you looking to attract one of these wailing women? You’re in luck! Like the Mermaid and Fairy, the Banshee Munzee will be attracted to magnets! Pick up your Munzee Magnet for $1 to attract up to three Seasonal Specials or Mythological Munzees for up to one hour! You can also purchase a Virtual Munzee Magnet for the same price in order to increase your chances of attracting our latest Mythological Munzee. The Banshee Munzee will be attracted to magnets in both physical and virtual forms.

Details

Name: The Banshee

Description: The Banshee Munzee bounces around on Greenies, Shamrocks, Black Virtuals, and Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured. Each is numbered and owned by a Munzee player. Only 1 Banshee Munzee is allowed per player.

Points:

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 100

To help find the Banshee Munzee, turn on “All Expiring Specials” and “All Mythological Filters” under the Premium heading.

There is not currently a traditional line of badges for capturing the Banshee Munzee, but these will count toward the Myth Hunter badge line. Stay tuned for a line of badges similar to the other Myth Ranker badges soon! There might even be a couple of surprises if you’re brave enough to catch a few!

Right now you might be screaming with joy, but if you encounter this Banshee, your shrieks might turn to terror!

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

RetireMyths and More!

As we told you last week with the announcement of the Fairy Myths, the time has come for some of the older Mythological Munzees to rest. Starting now any myth owned by Inactive/Retired players will be archived until the player becomes active again. Unfortunately nearly 200 Myths of all different types have fled the map. Honestly we thought it would be more though, so we’re excited that Myths continue to play such an active role in the game!

Don’t forget, although these Myths are gone they are not forgotten! The Myths owned by inactive accounts have been born again as RetireMyths! These creatures don’t come out to play often though, so you will only see them on the map from time to time. They are currently on the map and available to capture, but they will flee again without notice.

With the map a little less loaded with Myths now, we figured it was as good a time as any to offer new players the opportunity to purchase some Mythological Munzees! Very Limited amounts of some Mythological Munzees and Pouch Creatures have been placed in the Freeze Tag Online Store for sale.

See the Myth collection HERE: https://bit.ly/2xC3yjCIf you want to take your new Myth to the next level, try an upgrade! Myth Upgrades allow you to rename your Mythological Munzee as well as the ability to “nudge” them to a new location after three hours. Myth Upgrades are $5 and can be purchased as a credit and then applied to any Myth except the Mermaid or the Fairy, which already come with upgraded features.

We also have a special deal! If you purchase a Myth Upgrade and use the code BattleDancingUnicorns you’ll earn a FREE Blast Capture. You’ll need to make sure the Blast is in your cart as well to receive the discount. Just a heads up, we’re working on a cool new feature* for some Upgraded Myths. No official details yet, but it will be coming soon so take advantage of this deal today! The code will be valid until 23:59 MHQ on Sunday.

You can buy Myth Upgrades HERE: https://bit.ly/2QbtYQ5

 

We also have a new Myth Pack on sale, which include a variety of different munzees that Myths, AlternaMyths, RetireMyths and Pouch Creatures land on. The Myth Pack is $16 ($24 value) in the online store and includes:

  • 2 Shamrock Munzees
  • 2 Regular Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Fire Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Earth Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Water Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Ice Mystery Munzees

You can buy Myth Packs HERE: https://store.freezetag.com/products/myth-pack

As always we appreciate all of you! Munzee On!

 

*Rob had a dream about Battle Dancing Unicorns, so take from that what you will.

Introducing the AlternaMyth Wrangler Badge!

After the release of both the Myth Wrangler and the Classical Myth Wrangler badges it was only a matter of time until the AlternaMyths got their turn in the crosshairs!

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

The Rainbow Unicorn, Gnome Leprechaun, Ice Dragon and Sasquatch Yeti 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 first four Mythological Munzees are exclusively deployed by MHQ, 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, Classical Myths, or Classical AlternaMyths will not count toward this badge. Unlike the original Myth Wrangler this badge IS NOT retroactive though. The badge will begin awarding at 00:01 MHQ time on Thursday, February 8th.

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

Introducing the Classical Myth Wrangler Badge!

In December 2016 we set a new challenge for our players: Wrangle the Myths.

For the past year players have hunted down Unicorn, Leprechaun, Dragon and Yeti Mythological Munzees in a single day in order to earn the fateful Myth Wrangler badge. Those original four Myths gained some company over the year too though.

In 2017 we also released four new Mythological Munzees: The Faun, Hydra, Pegasus and Cyclops munzees. It’s about time we started wranglin’ those Myths too!

We’re excited to announce the Classical Myth Wrangler Badge. This badge is for top tier players who can capture all four Classical Mythological Munzees in one day- based on MHQ time. This is no easy task, but luckily a few Munzee Magnets should help you on your journey.

Please note that first generation Myths and AlternaMyths will not count toward this badge. Unlike the original Myth Wrangler this badge IS NOT retroactive though. The badge will begin awarding at 00:01 MHQ time on January 18th.

Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Introducing Myth Collector Badges!

With so many new Mythological Munzees popping up these days, you’d have to be crazy to go chasing after all of those kooky creatures. Luckily our players aren’t afraid of pushing the limits when it comes to capping munzees.

Myth Trapper – Capture 1,000 Mythological Munzees of any type.

So with that mind we’re happy to announce that a new line of badges have been released for capturing Myths of any type! Not for the faint of heart, these badges will tally up every Mythological Munzee you’ve ever captured.

Mythological Munzees:

  • Unicorn
  • Leprechaun
  • Dragon
  • Yeti
  • Faun
  • Hydra
  • Pegasus
  • Rainbow Unicorn
  • Gnome Leprechaun

The badges are retroactive, but you’ll only be able to see the requirements for the next badge once you complete the previous one. Once you earn the first in the set you’ll unlock the requirements for the next badge. All of the badges are live so you can start earning them now.

It won’t be easy to earn these badges, but we know you’ll brave the elements! Remember, you can increase your chances of finding Myths by using Elemental Munzees and Magnets. 

Happy hunting and as always, Munzee on!
