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?!?

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!
