An Update to Places Munzees

We heard your feedback on proximity requirements for Places Munzees! Previously, ALL Places had to be at least 1 mile (= 5,280 ft = 1609.34 m) apart from other places of the same type. Meaning, a Faith Place had to be at least 1 mile away from any other Faith Place, and so on. We’ve now reduced that distance for certain Places as follows:

2,000 ft (609.6 m) Radius

2,500 ft (762 m) Radius

In light of this change, if you’d like to stock up on any of these Places, you can do so HERE! We’ve also reset the usual limit on purchasing Places, so if you were maxed out for the month, you don’t have to wait all the way until next month to treat yourself!

Munzee on!

How Many Caps Will it Take to Travel Around ZEE World?

Yesterday we announced the results of our Soap Box Derby — congratulations again to all the winners! Even if you didn’t get a special badge, we hope you enjoyed the theme and collecting the different racer parts.

Since we’ve officially closed the book on those specials, and it has been a week since they left the map, it’s about time for a new set of specials to collect! This time, we’re mixing it up again, scatter trail style!

Now Boarding!

Around ZEE World specials are now live on the map for everyone and will remain available until October 2 at 23:59 MHQ.

These specials will be released in waves, ending at a total of 400 of each (physical + virtual). This means there will be 800 Tickets bouncing around on the map! They will bounce around every 6 hours or when capped.

Ticket to Ride Ticket to Fly
Points Points
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
Landing Pads Landing Pads
  • Virtual Colors
  • Places
  • Tourism:
    • Historical Location
    • Iconic Location
  • Destinations:
    • Vacation Condos
    • Resorts
  • Evolutions:
    • All Stages of Championship Horse
    • All Stages of Submarine
    • All Stages of Muscle Car
    • All Stages of Safari Bus

These specials will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Ticket on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Ticket visits you. These munzees will not be blastable. They will be attracted to magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Tickets under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Make the Connection

Once you capture a Ticket to Ride OR Ticket to Fly, it will scatter 1 Steam Powered Roller Blades nearby!

This is your first mode of transportation, as you can see by the “1” at the bottom of the pin.

If you manage to capture it, it has a chance of scattering the next mode of transportation, much like the Walkie Talkie Watch scatters.

There will be 8 modes of transportation you’ll need to cap in order to complete the trip! While a missed connection can happen at any point during your journey, you’ll find that it is more likely to happen as you get closer to the end — just like in real life, small delays can add up to larger ones later on.

These scatters will be worth 50 points upon capture, except for the final mode of transportation, which is worth 100 points.

Badges

There are 4 badges related to Around ZEE World specials.

The first 3 are based on total captures of these specials, so make sure to cap as many as you can — even if you aren’t able to complete the trip, it will still contribute progress towards these badges. You can see the first badge in this line below:

French Connection- Capture 1 Around ZEE World special of any type.

The last badge does require you to make the full trip and capture at least one of each mode of transportation — but you only have to do it once! By our calculations, it shouldn’t take too many attempts on average, unless you’re EXTREMELY unlucky.

We hope you have a safe trip and make it back in one piece!

Munzee on!

The Great Wallaville Soap Box Derby Comes to Munzee!

After the madness that was the Wonder11and Playing Cards, anything would be more manageable, right? At least, we hope…

The gearhead in us has been tinkering under the hood, and we’re off to the races- the Soap Box Derby races that is! This month we’re putting a twist on our build-a-badge-style specials. The short version is, the more Soap Box Derby Car Parts you cap, the more Racers will be deployed on the map! These specials are now live for everyone and will remain available until August 31 at 23:59 MHQ, when we’ll announce the winner(s) of the race!

Build Your Racers!

You’ll need to collect 5 Basic Parts to build ALL Racers:

Please note that each Racer needs its own set of these Basic Parts — so, the first time you cap all of these items, you will build the Basic Racer. You’ll then need to capture another set of them to make progress towards the next Racer.

Speaking of the next Racer — in addition to the 5 Basic Parts above, you’ll need to collect 2 additional parts from Junk Boxes:

Junk Box Scatters

Special Race Cars need extra parts, as seen in the example below:

The points for ALL Parts are as follows:

  • Capture: 100
  • CapOn: 50

Basic Parts and Junk Boxes will be released in waves, ending at a total of 100 of each = (5 Basic Parts x 100) + (2 Junk Boxes x 100) = 700 total.

They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

On Your Mark, Get Set, GO!

Once you’ve captured the necessary parts for a Racer, you will receive the badge for doing so, AND a new Racer of that type will be deployed on the virtuals account bearing your username!

You won’t get CapOn points, but you will get bragging rights for all to see, and 150 points whenever you cap a Racer doesn’t hurt either!

While you can collect multiple sets of parts, each user will only be able to trigger 1 deploy per Racer type. That means, at most, there will be 6 Racers deployed for each user. If you want to see more Racers on the map, make sure to get yours built ASAP!

Racers will be moving faster than their Parts, so they will bounce every hour or when capped.

General Info

The information in this section applies to Basic Parts, Junk Boxes, AND Racers.

The landing pads are as follows:

Physical Virtual

They will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Basic Part/Junk Box/Racer on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Basic Part/Junk Box/Racer visits you. They will not be blastable. They will be attracted to magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access them under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Badges

There are three lines of badges related to Soap Box Derby specials.

The first line is based on overall Soap Box Derby special captures. These badges will show the progress of the Soap Box Derby race. The first badge in this line depicts Benson signaling the racers to start and is earned by capping any Part, Junk Box, or Racer!

The second line of badges is based on capping different combinations of Parts to successfully build a Racer, as mentioned above. Make sure to cap at least one of each special so you can build all 6!

You can sneak a peek at the first of these badge lines below:

Join the Queen’s Court with the Wonder11and Playing Cards!

— UPDATE: As of 7/8/22 12:30 MHQ — these specials now bounce every hour or when capped, to reduce the amount of alerts being created.

It’s about time for you to meet the Queen of Hearts! If you’re lucky, you may see her on the map right away — otherwise, you might need to go through a few of her guards first. Regardless, we know she’ll be mad about you, simply mad!

Wonder11and Playing Card Specials

Wonder11and Playing Card specials are now live on the map for everyone and will remain available until August 7 at 23:59 MHQ.

These specials will be released in waves, ending at a total of 100 of each card, except for the Joker and Jester, of which there are only 10 each. This means there will be (100 x 52) + (10 x 2) = 5,220 cards bouncing around on the map!

As there are 54 different icons to cap, they’ll be bouncing around much quicker than the usual MOB to make sure they visit as many munzees as possible — every 30 minutes 1 hour or when capped.

These specials will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Playing Card on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Playing Card visits you. These munzees will not be blastable. They will be attracted to magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Playing Cards under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Badges

There is only 1 line of badges related to Wonder11and Playing Card specials.

It is based on capping different combinations of Playing Cards, similar to the Hot Dogz that just left the map. As we anticipate these badges being more difficult to earn than usual, we’ve decided to reveal all of them now:

Joker Jail- Capture a Joker or Jester Wonder11and Playing Card.

We hope you won’t lose your head collecting these cards!

Munzee on!

Hot Dogz Specials for a Sizzling Summer Start!

Is it hot in here, or is it just me? While it’s still a bit early to call it summer here at MHQ (it officially starts on the 21st), the temps are already feeling quite toasty. If you can’t take the heat as you’re cooking dinner, why not get out of the kitchen and grill instead?

If you don’t own a grill (or even if you do), let us serve you! We’ve cooked up some new specials for you to collect and build your perfect hot dog!

Hot Dogz Specials

Hot Dogz specials are now live on the map for everyone and will remain available until July 4 at 23:59 MHQ.

At launch you can expect to see the ingredients shown below, which are the Hot Dog Buns, Hot Dogs, Ketchup, Broon Sos, Bratwurst, and Mustard. These specials will be released in waves, ending at a total of 100 of each ingredient, except for Broon Sos, of which there are only 30. This is because Broon Sos is a rarer item in WallaBee, so we wanted to preserve its rarity here. More ingredients will appear as the month goes on, so make sure to keep an eye out!

They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

Physical Ingredients Virtual Ingredients
Points Points
  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50
  • All except Broon Sos:
    • Capture: 150
    • CapOn: 50

  • Places:

    • Cinema
    • Play Park
    • Beach
    • Campground
    • Golf
    • Entertainment

These specials will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Hot Dogz ingredient on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Hot Dogz ingredient visits you. These munzees will not be blastable. They will be attracted to magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Hot Dogz ingredients under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Badges

There are two lines of badges related to Hot Dogz specials.

The first line is based on overall Hot Dogz captures. These badges will show the journey of a growing hot dog empire! The first badge in this line depicts the humble hot dog stand and is earned by capping any ingredient!

The second line of badges is based on capping different combinations of Hot Dogz specials, similar to last year’s World Sushi Day specials. Make sure to cap at least one of each special so you can try each type of hot dog!

You can sneak a peek at the first of each badge line below:

We hope you’re able to cook up some fun with these delicious dining options! If you love this artwork, look for it and so much more on our sister app, WallaBee!

2017 In Review and Looking Forward to 2018

2017 was a great year. We tried to encompass our theme of “Everyone. Everywhere.” into all that we did. There were learning experiences along the way, but the community consistently pushed us to provide the best game and experiences we could. For that, we thank you tremendously. Below, we have some “year-in-review” stats and messages from the team followed by more information about our 2018 theme.


Munzee Events from Louise

Wow, what a year 2017 has been for Munzee Events. To everyone everywhere, thank you all for keeping me so busy!

We’ve had some fantastic events this year from the Tea Parties to our 6th Birthday celebrations, the MunzFit Events to the Christmas Parties that are just wrapping up now. 525 events to be precise, most hosted by you, our wonderful players, and some hosted by us at MHQ. We were delighted to welcome so many of you to our new office in McKinney back in September and had our first events with the whole MHQ  team.

We have greatly enjoyed coming to your events all over the world too, thank you for inviting us and being such wonderful hosts. Personally, my absolute highlight was celebrating my birthday with over 100 Munzee players at the Australia Day events back in January!

We’ve introduced new exciting merchandise exclusive to events and created Emerald Gardens all over the world. We also hit new record attendance levels with the events in Germany this summer, absolutely brilliant stuff!

I look forward to meeting more of you virtually as I work with you to create your Munzee Events and can’t wait to meet even more of you out and about at your amazing events.

Thank you for your support, Munzee On!


Munzee

There are quite a few things that could be said about 2017. We went through a lot of changes in efforts to do what we thought was best for the game and company. The community was always at the forefront when we made decisions, and “Everyone. Everywhere.” wasn’t just a theme but a way of thinking.  Check out some of the stats from this year:

As we mentioned in the podcast, our theme for 2018 is “The Time is Now.” Over the years, there has been projects and ideas that we haven’t had the time or resources to implement. With the staff and resources we have after merging with Freeze Tag, we can finally put these ideas into action. These range from gameplay changes to a new app and work on them will begin immediately. While you may not see them immediately, be sure that we are working to make the game and app better than ever.

Once again, thank you for everything you have done to help grow the game and support other member’s of the community.

Happy New Year, and Munzee on!

Introducing University Places Munzees!

As August comes to an end, many schools around the world start a new school year. MHQ wants to celebrate that by introducing our next type of Places Munzee: Universities!

University Places Munzees, like the previous Places Munzees we released last month, are deployed on player accounts and have the same point and proximity structure. You can see all of the Places Munzees on the Places Map, and if you need a refresher on how to deploy Places Munzees, you can check out our previous blog post.

Details

Points

  • Deploy: 25
  • Capture: 10
  • CapOn: 5

Proximity: 1 mile from other University Places Munzees

Capture Radius: 1000ft

Multi-Capture: These can be captured 1 time per MHQ day

Badges: These will count toward the Places capture badges.

Criteria

Like the other Places Munzees, there are certain criteria that we look for when approving University Places Munzees:

  • Most Importantly: University Places Munzees must be deployed at a University/College. Please no college annex buildings at grade schools (common in parts of the US).
  • Only 1 University Places Munzee will be allowed per campus. When deploying, please try and position the munzee at the main entrance on the university/college campus.
  • The university/college must be accessible to all, not a private/closed campus.
  • No research institutions unless they are part of a university/college system.

Our ZenDesk will be updated to reflect this information.

University Places Munzees will be available at 15:00 MHQ time TOMORROW (August 22nd, 15:00 CST) for $10 USD. All current Places Munzees will be removed from the store until then as well in order to add this new type. You will be able to find all Places Munzees for sale here August 22nd, 15:00 CST.

Munzee On!
