Munzee Updates! New Motel Icon, Store Sale, & Easter Personal Tag

Happy Thursday from MHQ! We have several general updates to share, starting with our brand new Munzee Motel icon artwork. Our updated Motel icon will now appear as follows:

This new redesign better aligns with the other Destination Munzees, so we hope this new eye-catching design will help you check-in more frequently! To celebrate the new icon, we are holding a “Renovation Sale” in the Freeze Tag Online Store for our Munzee Motels, Munzee Hotels, and Munzee Timeshares. (It’s now more convenient than ever to book one of them for your next vacation!) The credits for these munzees will be 20% off, while all Hotel stickers will be 40% off starting at 15:00 MHQ time today and lasting until Monday (4/22) at 10:00 MHQ time. Shop our Physical Destinations collection for easy sale access! Virtual Resorts are not currently discounted, but you can pick those up HERE as well.

And that’s not all! In the spirit of ZEEster, our Easter Personal tags will also be available for purchase from the Freeze Tag Online Store today at 15:00 MHQ time. The tag’s adorable Hatched ZEEster Egg artwork will appear as follows:

Will the ZEEster Bunny be hopping by your house this year? He just might if there are enough munzees in the area to cap!

Munzee on!

Holiday Goodies are on the Horizon with ZEEster Eggs!

Update: All ZEEster Eggs and Hatched Eggs count as MOBs (Munzee Owned Bouncers.) 

Will the Easter Bunny be hopping to your house this year? Even if you’re not expecting a visit from this furry friend, you can still fill up your Easter basket with plenty of treats. However, these goodies aren’t of the edible variety— but that doesn’t mean that they won’t satisfy! The Munzee ZEEster Eggs will launch on April 17 at 00:01 MHQ time and stay on the map until April 28 at 22:22 MHQ time for quadruple the holiday fun!

ZEEster Eggs

How do you like your eggs cooked? Scrambled? Over easy? With a side of points? (We’ll have the last option!) The ZEEster Eggs will introduce four new Munzee specials to the game, including the physical Blue Egg, Red Egg, and Yellow Egg, as well as the virtual White Egg. Worried about being able to cap one? All four Eggs can be magnetized. Be sure to pick up your Virtual Magnets and Physical Magnets from the Freeze Tag Online Store to increase your capping chances!

The ZEEster Egg specials will hit the map April 17 at midnight MHQ time and enjoy a comfortable run until April 28. In that time span, the Eggs will bounce around every 6 hours or when captured. There will be a set number of each Egg landing on the map, with 419 White Eggs, 140 of both Blue and Red eggs, and 139 Yellow Eggs.

The Eggs will not be blastable, but you CAN capture on your “owned” munzees or any previously capped munzee. You can access this special under the Premium “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The physical and virtual specials will land on greenies and all color virtuals, respectively.

Points

  • White Egg: split 60 points with a minimum of 15 for Capture and Host PLUS receive 1 PinPoint (What’s that?!)
  • Blue/Red/Yellow Egg: split 75 points with a minimum of 17 for Capture and Host PLUS receive 1 PinPoint
  • Hatched Eggs (all colors): Cap 100 points PLUS receive 5 PinPoints, No CapOn points

Hatched Eggs

Wait, did the points include Hatched Eggs?! We almost forgot to mention, there is a fair chance that capturing a ZEEster Egg will lead to a Scatter in the form of Hatched Eggs!

There is a chance upon capturing a physical Egg or a virtual Egg that a Hatched Egg will be caused to scatter. Capturing the White Egg has the possibility for a Hatched White Egg to scatter within 2,000 feet as a new virtual, similar to how the Feather Munzee works. Upon capturing one of the physical Eggs, the corresponding Red/Blue/Yellow Hatched Egg has the chance to scatter within 1,400 feet as a new virtual. The capture radius will be 300 feet for the Hatched Egg scatters. They will not be blastable OR have magnet attraction.

Points

  • Hatched Eggs (all colors): Cap 100 points PLUS receive 5 PinPoints, No CapOn points

Badges

That’s not all the fun to be had! In addition to our ZEEster Eggs and Hatched Eggs, there will also be a line of badges associated with the specials. Be sure to capture lots of different combinations of both Egg and Hatched Egg colors, because there are a total of five badges you can earn! Since we’re celebrating a holiday, we’ll give you a sneak peak of the first badge in the series below:

The ZEEster Bunny– Capture 1 ZEEster Egg Special of any kind.

Remember, April is all about fitness, so lace up your shoes and get out there for some hunting! Hopefully our latest specials will give you that extra initiative to get moving. Are you ready to have some early Easter fun?

Happy Hunting (and Happy Holidays!) and Munzee on!

P.S. Thanks to Robbie and the WallaBee team for sharing more amazing art and putting a Munzee spin on it for these specials!

Recycling Program Revamped with QRew and QRewzee Launches!

Article has been updated. 

Many Munzee players are already familiar with ZeeQRew, an elite program that is composed of players who have shown a dedication to growing the game of Munzee. They also replace missing munzees in order to assist in gameplay upkeep. In line with our active initiative, we are excited to announce a new type of Munzee to replace the old recycling program, as well as a new team of helpful players. It’s time to welcome the launch of the QRewzee Munzee and the addition of the brand new QRew team to the game!

QRew

With the game growing every day, we decided that even a crew as talented as ZeeQRew could use some extra cleanup help. That’s where QRew comes into play, a brand new title and duty that some of you might have already seen assigned to your game profiles. This new group of players can be thought of as “ZeeQRew Jr.” It’s an introductory level for those of you that are still working to achieve full ZeeQRew status.

Just like ZeeQRew has its own list of requirements, there are specific requirements for joining QRew. In order to become a member of QRew, you have to be a Premium MemberThe additional requirements for making QRew are as follows:

  • Have at least 100 deploys of any type AND
  • Have at least 1,000 captures of any type AND
  • Have at least 1 cap and 1 deploy in the last 14 days

If you are one of the players who is currently eligible for QRew, you will notice a new title on your profile! Exactly like ZeeQRew, QRew status is earned or revoked at 00:01 MHQ time on the 1st and 15th of each month if requirements are met.

If the requirements are met on these dates, the player will earn or retain the ZeeQRew or QRew title. If the requirements are not met, the title will be removed from any current ZeeQRew or QRew players, BUT it may be re-earned at the next checkpoint. Keep in mind that since the QRew requirements are not as steep as ZeeQRew, it’s also possible for a player to grow from QRew to ZeeQRew. However, if you lose ZeeQRew you are nothing (but you have the chance to regain your status)!

The rewards for QRew are as follows:

  • QRew title in app & online
  • The ability to replace any physical Munzee, regardless of owner, using a generic sticker*

Although the title has already been awarded, the ability for QRew members to replace munzees will be available in a V4 app update coming very soon! There will be no badge, discount, or unique merchandise associated with QRew. Players must continue to grow and become ZeeQRew to earn added rewards. However, QRew isn’t the only update to the former Munzee recycling program…

QRewzee

Along with the launch of QRew, we are happy to announce a new type of munzee to replace the former Recycle Munzee. All QRew and ZeeQRew members will see this icon on the map for the following physical Munzee types which have had no activity on them in the last 365 days. These munzees include:

  • All Physical Jewels
  • Physical Clan Weapons
  • Greenies
  • Regular (Blue) Mysteries and Physical Elemental Mysteries including Fire, Earth, Water, and Ice
  • Premium Munzees

The new icons will only appear on designated QRewsdays. Each month a schedule will be announced to designate when QRewsdays will occur, similar to how our monthly Flat Friends schedules work**. Capture of the QRewzee Munzee will award 100 points and the icon. There will be 10 CapOn points. You CAN capture a QRewzee Munzee on your own munzee or a previously captured munzee.

Points

  • Capture: 100 points
  • CapOn: 10 points

To see the QRewzee Munzees, look on the physical “Others” filter and the new QRewzee filter under premium options to “Only show these types.” Please note that players will only be able to specifically filter QRewzees in v4 of the Munzee app.

There will also be a line of hidden badges associated with capture of the QRewzee Munzees. The first in the series will appear as follows:

QRew Your Part!- Capture 1 QRewzee Munzee

Without the diligence of our elite group of players, Munzee wouldn’t be the same! Thanks to all ZeeQRew members for their past gameplay upkeep and hope the new QRewzee points will be an incentive to keep it up. We appreciate all players that take the time and opportunity to grow the map and make Munzee better for all! We are excited to launch QRew and see more players get involved in upkeep and maintenance!

Munzee on!

**April QRewsdays will be:

April 16 – 10:00 to April 18 – 23:59
April 21 – 00:01 to April 24 – 23:59
April 26 – 00:01 to April 29 – 23:59

Update! Swap-Ability Made Available for Certain Physicals!

Do you have an overwhelming amount of munzee credits? What if you had the ability to use a credit to “swap” or “replace from a distance” certain munzees? What if this was no longer a “what if” question, but a reality? Well, starting today at 15:00 MHQ time, you will indeed have the opportunity to swap a number of currently deployed physical munzees with a credit you already have!

Before we explain, let’s tell you WHY for those who don’t like to read to the bottom of blog posts! 😉

  • Refresh the physical map in any area you choose without needing to archive first and wait 7 days
  • Use credits you have accumulated but don’t have a good use for
  • Earn a new deploy for the day
  • Earn more captures from the locals in any area you refresh (there will be much rejoicing!)
  • Keep the CapOns flowing in places with large groups of regular players

And now the details for those who care to read on (we recommend you do). Any currently deployed physical munzee of the types below, that already contain a generic code, will now be swappable! There are two options for swapping a munzee: swapping like for like or choosing between a field of options. The ability has been indicated below. As always, you can shop for all of your Munzee needs at the Freeze Tag Online Store. Just remember that what’s in stock is constantly rotating, but to make things easy, you can access the available “Swap-Ability Collection” here!

Ability to Swap Like for Like:

  • Motel Munzee  (only able to swap a new Motel credit)
  • Hotel Munzee  (only able to swap a new Hotel credit)

This means that you are able to swap out any currently deployed physical Motel Munzee with a brand new Motel Munzee credit, or any currently deployed physical Hotel Munzee with a brand new Hotel Munzee credit. You can shop the Destination Munzee collection to pick up Motel and Hotel credits as needed.

Ability to Swap Within List:

This means that players can swap any currently deployed physical munzee on the list with any one of the physical munzee options on the list. For example, you can swap a currently deployed Briefcase Munzee with a new Scatter Munzee credit or any existing Jewel Munzee with any Clan Weapon Munzee credit. A mace for a diamond, an RPS becomes a premium, a ruby for a Hammer, etc.! The choice is yours!

How to Swap

This new feature for certain physical munzees is available online only. Only munzees with a generic code can be swapped. The first thing you will need to do to swap out physical munzees is to log into your munzee account.

One you’ve logged in, select the “Deployed” button/tab.

This will bring you to a list of all the munzees that you have deployed. Select which munzee you wish to swap out by clicking on the munzee name. Maybe even use the “filter by type” option to select a munzee type that qualifies for the swap.

Once you click on the munzee, you will be presented with the following options. In order to swap out your physical munzees, select the “Edit Munzee” option.

Under the section “Replace Missing Munzee,” you will notice a new option to “Swap Out Munzee.” Selecting this option will allow you to choose which type of munzee you will be swapping to.

You can then select which type of munzee you wish to swap for. The available options have been indicated earlier in this blog post. Keep in mind that Hotels and Motels can only be swapped like for like.

Be sure to verify which munzees you want to swap. Confirming the swap will archive the original munzee* and deploy a brand new munzee of the type you have selected. The new munzee will have the same name and notes so update those if necessary.

Why Swap?

Currently players are already able to make certain virtual swaps. Many virtual types can be swapped, with the exception of Resort Munzees, Virtual Emerald Munzees, Virtual Trail Munzees, Air Mystery Munzees, and Temporary Virtual Munzees. That means that the following virtual munzees can be swapped.

  • Amethyst Munzees
  • Sapphire Munzees
  • Virtual Munzees
  • Surprise Munzees
  • All Flats Munzees
  • Crossbow Munzees
  • Catapult Munzees
  • Night Vision Goggles Munzees

This brand new “swap-ability” feature for certain physicals allows players to do several things which we think:

  • Refresh the physical map in any area you choose without needing to archive first and wait 7 days
  • Use credits you have accumulated but don’t have a good use for
  • Earn a new deploy for the day
  • Earn more captures from the locals in any area you refresh (there will be much rejoicing!)
  • Keep the CapOns flowing in places with large groups of regular players

What do you think of this latest gameplay ability? Do you already have some munzee swaps in mind? Interested in an example from Rob’s account? You can see he updated the notes to remember the previous deploy.

Get creative, and Munzee on!

*Any munzee archived via the Swap feature will not lose points or deploy day credit (for streak purposes) UNLESS it has 0 caps.
