July Resolutions Are Here!

While you still have a few days left in June to put your iced coffee money in your savings account for June Resolutions, we’re already looking to the future for our July Resolutions badge! From eating healthy to traveling more, our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement. As summer heats up on the Northern Hemisphere, this month we challenge players to lose weight (if you need to for your health)!

Even Santa is working on his “summer bod”

Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another 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. The monthly Capture Streak badges allow for the chance to work towards a different goal each month in order to bring about a year of positive growth and change.

Losing Weight for Health

While folks on the Southern Hemisphere might be bundling up, the Northern Hemisphere is well into bathing suit season. And for many, the rise in temperature is accompanied by a heightened dissatisfaction with one’s physical appearance. Weight loss, however, shouldn’t be something that is appearance based. It might sound cheesy, but if you’re asking yourself “do I have a summer body?” the answer is “do you have a body?” If you say “yes,” then you’re all ready to hit the beach!

While it’s crucial to accept your body as is, that doesn’t mean that you can neglect your health. If your weight is impacting your health, then it’s time to lose weight the right way in order to feel better and increase your longevity. Rather than gravitate towards a fad diet or “lose weight quick” scheme, the two main components of weight loss are diet and exercise. The number one reason why diets fail is because they are unsustainable. By changing your lifestyle choices permanently, you will never again have to grapple with the disappointments of “yo-yo dieting.” Just be sure to find a healthy meal plan that works best for YOU.

While counting calories can lead to unhealthy behaviors, it is beneficial to be aware of factors such what you eat, how much you eat, when you eat, and how often you eat. Keeping a food journal, or tracking your food intake on one of the many helpful dieting apps, can help you become more aware of what you put into your body so that you can make more informed dining choices.

When it comes to staying active, the playing field is unfortunately not even. However, if you have underlying medical issues that are prohibiting weight loss, you can still set daily goals for yourself. We are so proud of how many players have achieved monumental fitness accomplishments, especially after many have shared their stories of chronic physical disabilities and illnesses that they refuse to allow to hold them back. Remember, the only person you have to compete with when it comes to fitness is yourself. Focus on personal growth rather than comparing yourself to others, and remember that health is always the goal.

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!

June Resolutions Badge Details

Our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement through highlighting different monthly resolutions. This month we’re challenging players to save money for the June Resolutions badge.

Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another 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. The monthly Capture Streak badges allow for the chance to work towards a different goal each month in order to bring about a year of positive growth and change.

Tips for Saving

While some are naturally skilled in the art of restraint, others need more motivation to hold themselves back from bleeding their wallets dry. However, no matter how careless you might be with your spending, it is entirely possible to reverse your financial situation by adhering to ways to save money. To maximize your long-term profits, take advantage of interest when moving around bank account assets. Take inventory of the items you have accumulated over the years, and rather than continue to add to the collection, consider what you can sell. There’s a good chance you can profit from scarcely used items in your possession.

Instead of purchasing items when the mood strikes, carefully plan your shopping endeavors. Collect coupons, sign up for rewards programs, and stock up during seasonal sales. Purchase items in their off-season, and plan ahead for holiday shopping. For example, it will be far more cost effective to purchase winter apparel at the end of the cold season and save it for the next year if you know you’ll be needing a new coat in the future. Be thrifty with your spending, and don’t leave important purchases or gifts for the last minute. By planning ahead, you can secure the most desirable prices rather than shell out extra cash for a last minute need.

Stick to your shopping list, and restrain from impulse purchases. Decide which nights you want to go out, and stick to a set budget when you do so or plan social outings around discount nights. Take care of the items that you do have, and invest in high quality, long-lasting items rather than disposable trendy apparel. Be conscious of how much money you spend on take out and eating away from home and how often you waste electricity. Investing in smart appliances is a great way to lower bills and help the environment.

No, you won’t be able to take your money to the grave. But with life being so unpredictable, you never know when some extra savings could be your saving grace. Additionally, by abstaining from giving in to momentary purchases and whims, you can save your hard-earned money for things that matter, like visiting a faraway friend or relative or doing something that you’ve dreamed of. Avoid hardship down the line and open the possibility for more opportunities by being a bit more reserved with your spending.

Munzee on!

Introducing the Latest Pouch Creature…

UPDATE: Pimedus and the Pouch Creature Collection are now LIVE! You can also pick up Bouncer Upgrades and a Pimedus Personal Tag!

Remember Hadavale, the friendly white ghost TOB who offered a sizable BOOST in points? Well, there is another ghost in town, and this POB goes by the name Pimedus! Pimedus might not appear as friendly at first glance, but the latest Pouch Creature will be going on sale today at 15:00 MHQ time for 24-hours in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

That’s right, an entire day in the store means you won’t have to set your timers for odd hours in order to guarantee a Pimedus purchase! You can pick up your Pimedus Pouch Creature (link not active until 15:00 MHQ) for $15. Pimedus will be joining the ranks of Mitmegu, Tuli, Vesi, Muru, and Hadavale as the latest Munzee Pouch Creature. Pouch Creatures are based on items from our sister app, WallaBee, and represent a new era of munzees to enjoy!

Pimedus

Not to be outshone by her white ghost mate, the black ghost will have her own set of unique special features. Pimedus will operate similar to a Prize Wheel, randomly offering different prizes for cappers! You can earn points, PinPoints, maybe even the ALL NEW Physical Capture Booster Credit! That means you never know what prize you’ll be getting! Don’t let Pimedus fool you— she is far more generous than she might appear! HOWEVER, there is a very small chance that Pimedus might be feeling greedy, in which case she could steal some of your points. The chance of this is very slim, but if she does steal points she will give you a larger than usual amount of PinPoints! It looks like you’ll have to capture her at your own caution!

Points

  • Deploy: 250 points
  • Capture: Will vary from 10 possibilities including the following options:
    • 200 points
    • 80 points and one 2x Physical Capture Booster Credit
    • LOSE 100 points BUT EARN 50 PinPoints
    • Additional rewards that could rotate monthly (usually about 10 total)

While the capper of Pimedus will receive one of the listed prize options, each Pimedus owner will ALSO have the chance to earn a random prize for each CapOn! As always, the black ghost will be feeling temperamental, so you never know what you’ll receive! (Cut her some slack, she’s going through a moody phase!) The prize options at launch for CapOn will appear as follows:

  • 100 points
  • LOSE 100 points BUT EARN 50 PinPoints
  • 100 points and 1 PinPoint
  • 10 points and 10 PinPoints
  • 50 points and 5 PinPoints
  • Additional rewards that could rotate monthly (usually 5-10 total)

Are you excited for a little game of risk vs. reward? You can find Pimedus hanging out on the following landing pads:

However, you can also unlock the following landing pads with a Bouncer Upgrade Credit for an additional $5, from the Freeze Tag Online Store. These additional landing pads include:

When the Bouncer Upgrade credit is used, your Pimedus will also have the ability to be “nudged” to a new munzee. You can use the nudge feature up to three times a day (MHQ 24-hour day), but only after your munzee has sat for at least 3 hours. Additionally, the Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Pimedus! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct, and be mindful of maintaining a family friendly environment!

Pimedus will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Pimedus on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Pimedus visits you. However, Pimedus will be non-blastable. This Pouch Creature will be attracted exclusively to Physical Magnets on Greenies. (That means Virtual Magnets aren’t going to help you in this situation!) You can access Pimedus under the “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Pouch Creatures” filters.

2x Physical Capture Booster Credit

As stated above, Pimedus will also give you the opportunity to earn 2x Physical Capture Booster Credits. Much like when you capture a Hadavale and earn a Physical Deploy Booster, if you earn a Physical Capture Booster from a Pimedus you’ll be able to use it at your own convenience from your inventory tab in app. Although Hadavale awards a Booster every time it’s capped, since there will be many more Pimedus floating around there’s a slimmer chance at earning a Physical Capture Booster. A new over-the-air update has been pushed, so now you’ll be also able to use multiple Booster types at the same time! Just activate both boosters and get to capping and deploying! Or stick with one at a time if you like, it’s all up to you when you activate a booster!

Badges

All players who deploy a Pimedus will receive the following deploy badge:

Additionally, there will be three more badges to unlock based on number of Pimedus captures. The first in the series will appear as follows:

Bronze Pimedus Scout– Capture 1 Pimedus Pouch Creature Munzee

Pimedus will be available for sale exclusively from the Freeze Tag Online Store for 24-hours only starting at 15:00 MHQ time today. Hopefully this isn’t the time you chose to take a digital retreat, because this Pouch Creature offers plenty of fun!

Munzee on!

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!

Map Updates Have Arrived!

Version 4.0 of everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt brought many positive changes, but one aspect of the game that still needed touching up was the maps. Today we’re happy to announce that the maps have indeed been updated, thanks largely to our switch to Apple Maps! Using Apple Maps will allow more up to date satellite imagery in order to portray the surroundings as accurately and detailed as possible for both Android and iOS devices.

Please note that although we have changed providers to Apple Maps, this new map system is available on both Android and iOS devices. We are excited to bring you a faster, more responsive, and improved map! Hopefully this will enhance the experience for those of you who play in satellite mode.

These updated maps were chosen for a variety of reasons, most importantly that they are as accurate and fast compared to the map system used in V3. This allows us to maintain the fast loading speed of the pins in the game with limited development costs. The new map also offers much more up to date satellite images, which is something the players have requested since V4’s launch. We’re hoping that this change will make the gaming experience more enjoyable for all players, no matter where you live!

Additionally the new over-the-air update has changed the deploy location to now be set when scanning a code or tapping “deploy,” not when reaching the “edit location” screen.

Does this update get you excited? Stay tuned for more updates down the line! And be sure to connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to always stay in the loop!

Happy Hunting, and Munzee On!

Blast From The Past Concludes with 00s Tags!

All good things must come to an end, and alas, we are concluding our Blast From The Past personal tags collection with the new millennium. The 50s, 60s70s80s, and 90s Munzee Personal tags have all enjoyed their stay in the Freeze Tag Online Store, and they have cleared out to welcome the 00s tags today at 15:00 MHQ time!

Can you believe that 2000 was already nineteen years ago?! Time really flies. You will have until April 10 at 15:00 MHQ time to pick up your 00s tag, which will end this nostalgic personal tags series with this off the chain conclusion. Remember to add your FREE Blast Capture to the cart with any Blast From The Past personal tag purchase.

In order to get the FREE Blast Cap, you’ll need to add both the Blast From The Past personal tag of your choice and a Blast Capture to your cart. No discount code is needed, but the discount will NOT be automatically added until both items are added to the cart. If you plan on buying more than one Blast From The Past tag and want more free Blast Caps, you will need add more to your cart for each tag purchase. Please note that this promo is only applicable to the Blast From The Past tags.

Like all of our personal tags, the 90s tag is made with sublimated images on metal to ensure for durability. (They can even survive the Y2K bug!) Let’s journey back to a simpler time when the pink Razr flip phone was the coolest phone on the market and everyone was chatting on AIM. Baby G watches were the dopest accessory to have, and we were all singing to Destiny’s Child. And of course, Myspace was all the rage! The 00s may not have had Munzee, but they were on the cusp of gaming greatness!

Be sure to pick up this wicked cool tag, and Munzee on!

Shine Bright With New Gleaming Pouch Creatures!

What could possibly be cuter than a Pouch Creature? No, the answer is not rhetorical! It’s a Gleaming Pouch Creature!

Since April Fools is well over, you can believe us when we say there is a fun surprise for the lucky few! That’s right, new colorations of all three stages of Tuli, Vesi, and Muru are currently bouncing around the map waiting to get capped. There’s a catch though, these shiny specials are a bit shy, so you won’t know they’re Gleaming until you cap them. Gleaming Pouch Creatures will appear NORMAL on the map like any other Pouch Creature. However, there is a chance that the Pouch Creature will reveal itself to be Gleaming upon being capped! To heighten your chances of finding a Gleaming Pouch Creature you’ll need to cap each of them you see just to be sure.

If the Pouch Creature is Gleaming, the new icon will show up in the captured pop-up message, and it will also show as a new type on your specials/achievements page. The Gleaming Pouch Creature will also award double the original points for Cap/Deploy/CapOn! That means there are double points possible to be earned on all three stages of Tuli, Vesi, and Muru!

Pouch Creatures can be a little shy, but luckily all three types (Muru, Tuli and Vesi) are attracted to physical Munzee Magnets as well! They will only be attracted as their Level 1 version though, so once they level up they won’t fall for any tricks! You can pick up Magnets in the Freeze Tag Online Store, along with Elemental Munzee blocks which will be on sale for $12 (originally $16) at 15:00 MHQ to help draw out more Pouch Creatures!

At 15:00 MHQ time today, we will be adding some Pouch Creatures back to the Freeze Tag Online Store if you’d like to pick one up to deploy. Per usual these are in limited stock, so if you don’t have one, today is a great day to get one! (It’s also the perfect time to pick up our last Blast From The Past personal tag.)

Meeting your April fitness goals will be easier than ever with the added incentive to chase each and every Pouch Creature that pops up in your area!

Happy Hunting, and Munzee on!

April Resolutions Badge Details Have Arrived!

Can you believe we’ve already completed a quarter of 2019? Our monthly Capture Streak Badges centered around a year of personal improvement have already brought us the resolution to eat healthy (January), make new friends (February), and explore new hobbies (March). This month we’re happy to introduce getting organized as out April Resolution!

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. Remember that each month is the chance 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!

Organize Your Life

Have you heard of the term “spring cleaning?” Even if you’re currently enjoying fall on the Southern Hemisphere, it can benefit your life greatly to join us folks on the Northern Hemisphere and get your life cleaned out and organized this spring.

Did you know that there are health benefits to being organized? Organization is linked to an increased boost in energy. Shake the midday slump with a quick desk organization. Having your personal and digital space in order can lead to a burst in energy. Organization can also lead to better eating habits! That’s right, organizational skills are linked to healthier eating. They can even potentially lower heart attack risks by getting people off their feet and moving!

Organization can also improve sleep habits, which are a critical component of overall health. Clutter can lead to an increase in stress which disrupts sleep time and quality. Give yourself the peace of minded needed to recharge and reboot by having your personal effects in order. Overall, organization is linked to a reduction in stress and an increase in happiness. So don’t forget to use your filters to organize everyone’s favorite game!

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!

The last four weeks have brought us the 50s, 60s70s, and 80s Munzee Personal tags, and our penultimate tag is ready to get crunk!

One might say the 90s personal tag is the bomb. (And that person would be correct.) 

Are you considering missing this personal tags sale? As if! The 90s personal tags will be in the store for exactly one week, available for purchase until Wednesday, April 3 at 15:00 MHQ time. At this point our final tag, the 00s tag, will bump it off the market.

Please note that this promo is only applicable to the Blast From The Past tags.

Like all of our personal tags, the 90s tag is made with sublimated images on metal to ensure for durability. You should get crunk about the dopest decade in time, which introduced the world to the glory of Dunkaroos, the Macarena, Beanie Babies, Nintendo 64, fanny packs, gel pens, Tamagotchis, AOL, Discman, Lisa Frank, slap bracelets, Pokemon cards, and pretty much everything that mattered! (Except for Munzee… you’d have to wait until 2011 for that.)

Pick up a tag to relive the freshest decade in time! Honestly the only thing more fly than these tags is this photo of Rob from the 90s!

Back before the baseball cap

Boo ya! And Munzee on!
