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!

NEW Places Munzees to Add Significance to the Map!

Continuing our Player AppreZEEation initiative, we’ve made some improvements to Places Munzees and developed 2 NEW ones that have been frequently requested. Let’s start with the changes first, before showing you the new stuff!

Important Updates!

Just in case you’ve recently purchased some Places and are interested in picking these up, we’ve reset the timers and changed the limit to one per account per 15 days for ALL Places.

In addition, one of the issues brought up in this post was that bouncers that land on Places change the cap radius to less than 500 feet — this has now been fixed, so hopefully this makes capping those bouncers easier!

NEW Places Details

Joining the ever-growing roster of Places are the Memorial and Gym. These have been added to the Freeze Tag store as of 12:00 MHQ today. Shop the Memorial Place HERE and the Gym Place HERE!

Both are vital to keeping up our health — the former mentally and the latter physically — AND we got the idea for these types from you, the players, so we’re confident they’ll be a welcome addition to the game. As with other Places Munzees, these can be captured daily! They will also contribute progress towards the Places Capture badge line and the Places Streak badge line.

Memorial Place Gym Place
Points Points
  • Deploy: 40 points
  • Capture: 20 points
  • CapOn: 10 points
  • Deploy: 40 points
  • Capture: 20 points
  • CapOn: 10 points
Additional Info Additional Info

  • Not blastable
  • Filter: “Virtual – Places”
  • Can be captured daily
  • Capture Radius: 1,000 feet
  • Not blastable
  • Filter: “Virtual – Places”

For more information on how to deploy a Places munzee, you can check out our Help Guide article. This document will be updated with our guidelines should any changes occur. Please note that these new places should be easily identifiable from Google Maps.

Deploy Guidelines:

Remember a Places Munzee has to have its location approved for deployment, so please be sure to read through these guidelines carefully. It is also very helpful for you to update the name and notes of the Munzee so our reviewers can verify it quickly to get it deployed for you.

Memorial: This is for memorials and locations of remembrance. For example, this Veterans Memorial near MHQ. As these places can take many different forms and can honor different subjects, this one can be quite tricky to define. In addition, a place may have the word “Memorial” in the name, but may not actually fit our intention with this game piece. One good rule of thumb is to review the other Places we’ve already released, and see if the location you’re planning to deploy at might fit any of the other Places better. Some Places we anticipate being related to this type are: University Places, Faith Places, Historical Places, Hospital Places, Cemetery Places, Unique Attraction Places, and Play Park Places.

Gym: This is for places where you can get some exercise! Think gyms and fitness centers. Before you ask — no, Pokémon GO gyms don’t count! Not to be confused with Sports Stadium Places, Play Park Places, or Entertainment Places.

Places Munzees are very unique due to the much larger cap radius (as compared with other munzee types) and aforementioned daily capture ability. As you can’t capture your own munzees, trade Places munzees with other players to make the most of your deploys!

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
  • Broon Sos:
    • Capture: 200
    • CapOn: 75
Landing Pads Landing Pads

    • Onyx
  • Places:
    • Sports
    • 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!

On Your Mark, Get Set, GO! #WorldBicycleDay Specials!

UPDATE: as of 6/17/21, another latecomer, Tandem Twins, will be out on the map! It is a virtual special, so it will behave exactly like the Toy Trike and Bicentennial Bicycle. We have also extended the capture badge line so there are now 6 badges to earn!

UPDATE: as of 6/10/21, World Bicycle Day specials will now bounce around the map until 23:59 on June 30th. This has also been updated below.

In addition, Fancy Flat Lou will also scatter the Starting Line, Midway, and Finish Line munzees, which will reveal her own version of the random race result icons. Caps of Fancy Flat Lou will NOT count towards the capture badges described below, but caps of her Starting Line, Midway, and Finish Line munzees WILL. We’ve also extended the badge line so now there are 5 badges to earn!

Tomorrow is World Bicycle Day, which was established by the United Nations General Assembly due to bicycles’ historical significance and their many benefits as a transportation solution: “simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable.” As our Global Events Director, Louise, can attest, the humble bicycle can be the start of something great, and is definitely worthy of being featured in our app! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on June 2nd, World Bicycle Day specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on June 30th.

World Bicycle Day Specials

Riders will be racing in waves, but should reach a total of 1,200 — 300 per bike. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find these speed demons at the following landing pads:

Each bike will be worth 150 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! Champion Choppers and Unicorn Unicycles will be attracted to Physical Magnets, while Toy Trikes and Bicentennial Bicycles will be attracted to Virtual Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Racers Ready

These bouncers also have a unique twist to them! When you capture a World Bicycle Day special, a Starting Line Munzee will scatter nearby, similar to a Laser Trail. This means only you (the capper) will see the Starting Line Munzee on the map. Once you start the race you’ll need to find the Midway Munzee scattered nearby, followed by the the Finish Line Munzee! If you find you’re just out of range, you’ll be happy to know that you can use Rover Treats to have Rover fetch them for you!

Additionally, when you capture a Finish Line Munzee, you’ll receive the random race result icon as well! They behave the same way as the Jack In Zee Box icons in that only the Finish Line Munzee will be visible on the map, but the result will be revealed once you capture it. Above is an example of the 1st Place Champion Chopper result! You’ll be able to earn 1st through 3rd Place for all bikes, so keeping racing to earn all 12 results!

Badges

There will be six badges to earn for these specials. They are all based on the total number of World Bicycle Day specials AND scatters you capture, but just how many captures it takes to earn all 5 badges will be kept a secret! Watch for a badge reveal post in the following days!

We hope you’re ready to rock-and-roll with these specials!

Munzee on!

NEW Places Munzees We’d Love to Visit!

Feeling like a dog itching to go on a walk? Us too! While many of us have adapted to working in the current situation, playing in the current situation is severely limited — of course, there are books, video games, movies, TV shows, and music you can safely consume at home — but they have their limits. In preparation for all the good times that are a long time coming, we’ve developed 2 NEW Places Munzees! These have been added to the Freeze Tag store as of 12:00 MHQ today. Shop them HERE! They are limited to one per account per 30 days, like the other Places.

 

NEW Places Details

Joining the ever-growing roster of Places are the Entertainment and Pet munzees. The past year was pretty short on fun, so we’d love to see where you go to get those endorphins up! We got the idea for these types from you, the players, so we’re confident they’ll be a welcome addition to the game. As with other Places munzees, these can be captured daily! They will also contribute progress towards the Places Capture badge line and the Places Streak badge line.

Capture Radius: 1,000 feet, not blastable

Deploy: 40 points

Capture: 20 points

CapOn: 10 points

To access these munzees, turn on your “Virtual – Places” filters. For more information on how to deploy a Places munzee, you can check out our Help Guide article. This document will be updated with our guidelines should any changes occur. Please note that these new places should be easily identifiable from Google Maps.

Deploy Guidelines:

Remember a Places Munzee has to have its location approved for deployment, so please be sure to read through these guidelines carefully. It is also very helpful for you to update the name and notes of the Munzee so our reviewers can verify it quickly to get it deployed for you.

Entertainment: This is for indoor places where you go to play! Think arcades, skating rinks, laser tag locations, BIG malls, and casinos! Take care not to deploy these where a Cinema or Golf Places might be a better fit!

Pet: This is for places relating to your furry friends! Think pet stores, dog parks/beaches, humane societies, and animal shelters! Not to be confused with Wildlife Places (particularly the last two on that list), which are for non-pet animals.

NEW Personal Tag

We’re also excited to announce a new personal tag featuring the new Places Munzees! You can shop it HERE!

Places Munzees are very unique due to the much larger cap radius (as compared with other munzee types) and aforementioned daily capture ability. As you can’t capture your own munzees, trade Places munzees with other players to make the most of your deploys!

Munzee on!

By Popular Demand, A New Places Munzee Has Emerged!

Back in May, we released 4 new Places Munzee types that were often requested by players. We thought that that would be enough to tide fans of Places Munzees over for the rest of the year. So, we were surprised to see that recently, there have been requests for a new type! We’re calling it the Drink Depot Places Munzee! It was added to the Freeze Tag store as of 12:00 MHQ today. Shop them HERE! They are limited to one per account per 30 days, like the other Places.

NEW Drink Depot Details

This new Places Munzee is all about the production of libations. Whether it’s a vineyard, a brewery, or a distillery we’re looking for unique locations that produce adult beverages (alcohol). We got the idea for this type from you, the players, so we’re confident they’ll be a welcome addition to the game. We can’t wait to see photos of beautiful grapevines, rustic machinery, and other interesting sights attached to these munzees. As with other Places munzees, these can be captured daily! They will also contribute progress towards the Places Capture badge line and the Places Streak badge line.

Capture Radius: 1,000 feet, not blastable

Deploy: 40 points

Capture: 20 points

CapOn: 10 points

To access these munzees, turn on your “Virtual – Places” filters. For more information on how to deploy a Places munzee, you can check out our Help Guide article. This document will be updated with our guidelines should any changes occur. Please note that these new places should be easily identifiable from Google Maps.

Deploy Guidelines:

Remember a Places Munzee has to have its location approved for deployment, so please be sure to read through these guidelines carefully. It is also very helpful for you to update the name and notes of the Munzee so our reviewers can verify it quickly to get it deployed for you.

Drink Depot: This is for the places where alcoholic beverages are made… not every location where it’s consumed. Think vineyards, wineries, breweries, and distilleries, but not bars or restaurants!

Places Munzees are very unique due to the much larger cap radius (as compared with other munzee types) and aforementioned daily capture ability. As you can’t capture your own munzees, trade Places munzees with other players to make the most of your deploys!

New Places Munzees to Grow the Map With!

It’s been a while since we last introduced new Places Munzee types! While it may be tough to go anywhere at the moment, we hope this will help those of you who live near these types of places, especially those that participate in Clan Wars! The new Places Munzees were added to the Freeze Tag store as of 12:00 MHQ today. Shop them HERE! They are limited to one per account per 30 days, like the other Places.

NEW Places Details

Joining the ever-growing roster of Places are the Bank, Beach, Campground, and Golf munzees. You may be wondering — would a mini golf or “Top Golf” type location be eligible for a Golf Places munzee? The answer is yes! We got the ideas for these types from you, the players, so we’re confident they’ll be a welcome addition to the game. As with other Places munzees, these can be captured daily! They will also contribute progress towards the Places Capture badge line and the Places Streak badge line.

Capture Radius: 1,000 feet, not blastable

Deploy: 40 points

Capture: 20 points

CapOn: 10 points

To access these munzees, turn on your “Virtual – Places” filters. For more information on how to deploy a Places munzee, you can check out our Help Guide article. This document will be updated with our guidelines should any changes occur. Please note that these new places should be easily identifiable from Google Maps.

Deploy Guidelines:

Here is a breakdown of guidelines for each of the new Places types. Remember a Places Munzee has to have its location approved for deployment, so please be sure to read through these guidelines carefully. It is also very helpful for you to update the name and notes of the Munzee so our reviewers can verify it quickly to get it deployed for you.

Bank: Bank Places Munzees can be deployed at official bank buildings around the world. These will not include just an ATM, or “cash point” but an actual bank. The bank may be inside another business but must be a full service bank.

Beach: Beach Places Munzees can be deployed at many types of beaches around the world. They may be found at lakes, oceans, rivers, and many other bodies of water. “Beaches” at amusement parks, neighborhood pools and small playgrounds will not be accepted. “Real” beaches at “real” bodies of water are the intended locations.

Campground: Campground Places Munzees can be deployed at officially designated campgrounds around the world. These may include campgrounds that are a place of business but may also include free campgrounds.

Golf: Golf Places Munzees can be deployed at official recreation places used for golfing around the world. This type will include miniature golf, golf courses, and even some businesses providing indoor golf services.

Places Munzees are very unique due to the much larger cap radius (as compared with other munzee types) and aforementioned daily capture ability. Maybe you want to follow the advice in last month’s Munzee Mistakes post and trade Places munzees with other players to make the most of your deploys?!?

Munzee on!
