ARGHHHHHH! Wednesday September 19th be “Talk Like A Pirate Day” and ye better be ready to walk the plank!
Come Sail Away:
We’re excited to announce that from 00:01 MHQ on September 17 until 23:59 MHQ September 23 Pirate Ship specials will be sailing across the map!
In case you didn’t know, the current version of the Munzee app has the ability to set your in-app language to Pirate. This fun feature unfortunately will be walking the plank in version 4.0 though so we wanted to send it off in style.
500 Cargo Ship specials will bounce on Greenies every 6 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.
500 Treasure Ship specials will bounce on RUMs, Premium, and Physical Jewel Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. These will NOT be attracted to magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.
500 Ghost Ship virtual specials will bounce on MVMs, Emerald, and Amethyst Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Munzee Magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.
Ye landlubbers want badges, aye?! Well the west wind seems to be blowing your way!
There are a variety of badges you can earn for capturing Talk Like A Pirate Day Specials and these will also count toward the Specials Badges. There are a total of six badges you can earn throughout the allotted Specials timeframe. We’ll show you the three for capping each of the different Special types, but you’ll have to discover the other three* yourselves!
Starboard Stowaway- Capture at least one Cargo Ship Pirate Day Special
Gilded Sea Glider- Capture at least one Treasure Ship Pirate Day Special
Davy Jones’ Locker- Capture at least one Ghost Ship Pirate Day Virtual Special
If it’s treasure ye want, you don’t need a map to find it!
The Freeze Tag Online Store has a Pirate Pack for luring out stranded sailors as well as a new Pirate Personal Tag too. Per usual these are in limited quantity so get yours before they run out! Read the details on the Pirate Pak to find out how to get a free diamond credit when you use “WalkThePlank” as a discount code!
In order to help ye quest for these Pirate pins, we are also changing up how you can purchase Munzee Magnets. A Magnet reset will take place Monday at 10:00 MHQ and moving forward players will be able to purchase up to 10 Magnets every 10 days. This will count for both Physical and Virtual Magnets, and it doesn’t matter when the last time you bought Magnets is; the reset will wipe your record clean as of Monday.
All Hands On Deck:
In order to up the ante for our worldwide crew of Pirates, we’re also excited to introduce two community challenges!
First, if our worldwide community is able to capture a collective 1,500 Pirate Ship specials of all three kinds, collectively, in the first 48 hours of setting sail, we will release a new Mythological Munzee next week! To sweeten the pot, the first 1,500 Pirate Ship special captures will be entered into a drawing to win one of the new Myths for FREE.
Second, if the community can capture a total of 15,000 Pirate Ship specials before they leave the map, you’ll unlock double points on Flats for a weekend in October! We won’t spill the beans on when exactly that is just yet, but it’s sure to be a scary good time. For reference, just over 13,000 bacon specials were captured in our most recent special icon fun! Everyone will have to work together to earn this special reward!
The Pirate’s Code:
Avast me hearties, set the sails, prepare the compasses, and sharpen ye swords! In less than half a fortnight our hunt for treasure begins! Yo ho, Yo ho, it’s a Pirate’s life for Zee!
*If ye read all the way to the end of the blog, we’ll give ye a hint on a badge. It’s said the key to unlocking Jewel-Eyed-Johnny’s hidden treasure is in the eye of the zee-holder!
