NEW Wonder11and Merch!

We released a new Universal and our first batch of Wonder11and Merch towards the end of last month. Since then, we’ve added a few new products we’d like to share with you! Read on to get the details!

Special Urban Camo Prize Wheel Packs

We’ve got a charming limited-edition pack of Urban Camo Prize Wheels available in the Freeze Tag Store! This time, we’re not limiting the amount you can purchase. And while they are limited-edition, once our current stock is gone, we will order more if they are in demand — shipping will just take longer at that point.

As you can see in the images above, the pack includes 5 magical Wonder11and designs = 5 total stickers perfect for a rabbit hole near you!

NEW Personal Tag Design!

In addition to the stickers shown above, Wylie has designed a new Personal Tag featuring the Wonder11and logo!

You can shop the new tag HERE!

Redeem Store Reminder

Lastly, don’t forget to check out what you can get for your Painted Rose Credits at munzee.com/redeem! A new batch of items has just rotated in!

We hope you are enjoying our month-long UnBirthday Celebration!

Munzee on!

Road Warriors Road Trip!

After a sneak peek in Florida this weekend, you may have noticed some new Flat Vans driving around! As you’ve probably guessed, these are Dale and Barb’s new Flat Object Munzees, and we’ve got the details for them below!

In addition, we’ve got some exciting news for Dale and Barb fans — they’ll be making a huge Road Trip around the states, covering territory they don’t usually get to visit! As this is such a special occasion, we’ve created new permanent physical munzees for them to deploy along the way and commemorate their trip — read on to learn more!

Flat Van Details

The eighth Flat Object is brought to you by Dale and Barb, our Roadwarriors! They are great ambassadors of our app, keeping in touch with players along the Space Coast and many more areas! If you’ve attended any of the Munzee Events they’ve hosted in the past, you’ve probably already met them, but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know them, or would like a refresher, you can check out their most recent Meet Munzee Munzday / Team Munzee Tuezday posts HERE and HERE!

The Flat Van joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Space Coast Geo Store HERE!

Flat Van
Points
  • Deploy: 20
  • Capture: Split 70 points with a minimum of 20 Points
  • CapOn: Split 70 points with a minimum of 20 Points
Additional Info
  • Capture Radius: 300 feet
  • Blastable
  • Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own
  • Filters: “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types”

For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Road Warriors 2022 Munzees

As Dale and Barb make their way around the U.S.A. in their not-flat van, they’ll be deploying physicals along their Road Trip route. However, they won’t be deploying on their personal accounts (SpaceCoastGeoStore and DalenBarb) — instead, they’ll be using the Roadwarriors Munzee account, which has the ability to convert greenies to the colorful icon pictured below! If you’ve been Munzee-ing for a while, you’ll find that they are similar to the InternationElles, Whomp Canada, and Wayward Nation munzees.

Road Warriors 2022
Points
  • Capture: Split 70 points with a minimum of 20 Points
Additional Info
  • Filters: “Physical – Tourism”

Although the Road Warriors 2022 Munzees will only be available in the U.S., these special pins will be permanently on the map! So if you’re planning a trip here, be sure to check out a portion of Dale and Barb’s Road Trip route and cap a Road Warriors 2022 Munzee!

Road Trip Route

This week, Dale and Barb are planning to visit Memphis and Ohio. Their main stops afterwards will be Wisconsin, and then Seattle. However, to get the most up-to-date information on Dale and Barb’s whereabouts, make sure to follow them on social media!

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat Van, which feature items Dale and Barb have on hand — tools to keep the van in tip-top shape, and products that they stock. You can see the first of each below!

There is also a badge for capturing a Road Warriors 2022 munzee, which you can see below. It should give you an idea of the Road Trip route Dale and Barb are planning to take!

Road Warriors 2022- Capture one Road Warriors 2022 Munzee of any type.

We hope you enjoy following Dale and Barb’s van and learning a bit more about them in the process!

Munzee on!

A Wonder11and Universal for our UnBirthday!

There is no occasion more special than our UnBirthday (of which there are 364), so to commemorate this special time, we’re releasing a NEW Universal for you to collect! Get your all new Wonder11and Universal HERE!

Similar to our thoughts with the past Universals, if you’ll be attending a UnBirthday Event but don’t feel safe touching and scanning others’ Personal Tags, ask other attendees to share their Universal code (if they have one) online so you can scan it from your home. Of course, the same goes if you are not attending any events but want to join in on the fun virtually — play your way!

Universally United

Featuring bits and bobs from Wonder11and, it has the best of both Social and Personal Munzee functionality as other players can capture it from anywhere in the world AND activity on it will earn you points. However, as this makes it incredibly valuable, we are limiting it to 1 per player. You can find this limited edition Universal HERE!

This Wonder11and Universal is a limited release item only available through August 1 at 12:00 MHQ.

A Universal has the same point structure as a regular Personal:

  • Capture: mystery random points 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45
  • CapOn: sum of 50 between player capture and residual
    • Example: player capture = 30, owner residual = 20. Total = 50
  • Deploy: 100 points (only deploy it once with no proximity or expiration!)
  • **Boosters will have no effect on Universal points.

You can find your Universal in the My Social Munzees section of the app, or the corresponding page on the website.

Like the 10th Birthday Universals, these will be auto-deployed upon purchase!

For more information, check out the Help Guide article.

Celebrate In Style!

We’ve also put together a collection of Wonder11and gear so you’re prepared for any UnBirthday parties near you! Alongside the new Universal you can dress for success by checking out the whole collection in the FT Online Store HERE!

Munzee on!

Need MORE Pets? Mari’s Flat Object is Actually 2-in-1!

You didn’t really think we’d celebrate National Pet Day with just Pet Rocks, did you? If so — consider it a late April Fool’s prank! With so many loveable pets out there, we knew we had to include a crowd-pleasing, cute, and cuddly animal in the festivities. We got more than we bargained for, as you’ll see — one became two!

The seventh Flat Object is brought to you by Mari, our productive Product Manager! She is the one who keeps MHQ running like a well-oiled machine! Thanks to her diligence in planning things well in advance, we’ve managed to meet a lot of our goals on schedule, rather than 1,000 hours each time! If you’ve attended any of the Munzee Events we’ve hosted in the past, you may have met Mari, but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know her, or would like a refresher, you can check out her most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Mari’s Flat Object is similar to Wylie’s in that it may be more accurately described as Flat Pets — but as it follows the same structure as other Flat Objects, we’ll still call it one for consistency. Say hello to the Flat Cats, based on her cats Benji and Burr! Benji is the orange one and Burr is the black one – they are brothers and the bestest friends in the whole world! 😺 They are the stars of many a Zoom call (and possibly the only things keeping Mari from going insane while stuck at home — call it the opposite of the crazy cat lady effect)! Read on to learn more!

Flat Cats Details

The Flat Cats join the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Flat Cats
Points
  • Deploy: 19
  • Capture: Split 89 points with a minimum of 19 Points
  • CapOn: Split 89 points with a minimum of 19 Points
Additional Info
  • Capture Radius: 300 feet
  • Blastable
  • Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own
  • Filters: “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types”

For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat Cats, which, as hinted above, feature some cute cat accessoreez and hijinks. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy catching Flat Cats and learning a bit more about Mari in the process!

Munzee on!

Stake Your Claim on the Map With This NEW Flat Object!

It’s been a little over 2 weeks since Munzee Madness 11, and though it was still a multi-stage event, it feels like it ended so quickly. We really missed attending events in-person and seeing players we’ve known for years, along with some new faces! As its first event was in 2012, Munzee Madness is the longest-running annual event hosted by players. It was originated by one of our Resellers, 1849, who owns Gold’n Coins! This quick history lesson is just one example of Resellers helping to maintain and grow the Munzee community — so in honor of ALL our Resellers, we’ve created a NEW game piece just for them!

The sixth Flat Object is a little different from the previous objects, as it was not designed by one specific team member — instead, we’ve developed it to represent our Resellers! As Munzee is a global game, we appreciate that our Resellers make it easier for local players to get their hands on Munzee stickers and other physical items. On top of that, as mentioned above, they are often a huge part of maintaining and growing the local Munzee community.

This Flat (and the badges associated with them) will be continuing the pirate theme we’ve established for our Resellers. Read on to learn more!

Flat RUM Details

The Flat RUM joins the Flats as a virtual type. If you are interested in picking one up, they will be available at most of our Authorized Resellers’ shops some time today. The links to shop all of our resellers are below!

Flat RUM
Points
  • Deploy: 19
  • Capture: Split 83 with a minimum of 18
  • CapOn: Split 83 with a minimum of 18
Additional Info
  • Capture Radius: 300 feet
  • Blastable
  • Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own
  • Filters: In “Virtual – Flats” or “All Flat Types” filter
  • Counts towards both Flat and RUM reqs for Clan Wars and ZeeOps
Store Links

For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat RUM, which, as hinted above, feature the gear you need for a nautical voyage. You can see the first of each below!

ZEE-Dayz Coming Soon!

Similar to last week’s MunzPak ZEE-Dayz, expect a ZEE-Dayz event for non-trial Premium Members kicking off Thursday at 00:01 MHQ! Flat Munzees will see double their normal point values!

If you are shooting for the the badge and exclusive bouncer for hosting an event every month this year, why not plan your March event for this weekend? Your attendees will be raking in the points! To refer to the details for the Monthly Event Packages again, click HERE!

We hope you enjoy capturing the flags and embracing the pirate life!

Munzee on!

Are You an Animal Lover? Then You’ll Love Wylie’s Flat Object!

Now that we’re well into 2022, it’s just about time to release our first Flat Object of the year! With National Love Your Pet Day and National Walking the Dog Day coming up, it seemed like the perfect time for this next game piece to come into the spotlight. Expect to see lots of Munzee Merch in the store based on its design in the coming weeks!

The fifth Flat Object is brought to you by Wylie, our powerhouse Production Specialist! If you ever ordered physical products from the Freeze Tag Store, she has been involved in every step of the process in bringing that product to you! From designing to manufacturing to shipping, she can do it all! If you’ve attended any of the Munzee Events we’ve hosted in the past, you may have met Wylie, but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know her, or would like a refresher, you can check out her most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Wylie’s Flat Object may actually be more accurately described as a Flat Pet — but as it follows the same structure as other Flat Objects, we’ll still call it one for consistency. Say hello to the Flat Murray, based on one of the great loves of Wylie’s life — her pet Corgi (sorry Dylan!). Like his mom and dad, Murray has a flair for fashion, so these pups (and the badges associated with them) will be dressed to the nines. Read on to learn more!

Flat Murray Details

The Flat Murray joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, blastable

Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own.

Deploy: 19 points

Capture: Split 91 points with a minimum of 19 Points

CapOn: Split 91 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat Murray munzee, turn on your “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types” filter. For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat Murray, which, as hinted above, feature some cute Corgi costumes and accessoreez. You can see the first of each below!

Remembering Griff Halliwell

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Griff Halliwell just last weekend. In the Munzee community, he was most widely known as the creator of popular Munzee tool http://eeznum.co.uk/

A Brief Munzee Bio

Griff enjoyed playing Munzee with his wife, Lesley. They shared the georiffles account and were even featured as Players of the Week in 2015 — you can check out the blog post HERE to learn more about them.

Aside from regularly capping and deploying munzees and participating in Clan Wars with their Plankers I clanmates, Griff and Lesley have also been a pleasant presence at Munzee Events throughout the years. In fact, they met Rob, our CZeeO, long before officially becoming family this year (if you read the POTW blog post, you’ll discover that they are Lou’s Uncle and Auntie).

The Full Story

Like many of our other players Griff and Lesley began as geocachers, under the name georiffles. Griff introduced the entire family to location based gaming, as noted in their POTW blog. Over the past 6 years since that blog he has continued to build out his website full of tools. The Munzee team will work to keep Griff’s Eeznum website running since it is a popular tool amongst the community. Griff always enjoyed testing his coding and learning new skills by finding ways to give players tools to track their own stats. He was one of the first 3rd party developers to build tools for players to use. He focused on giving unique user based stats, like how many of your own bouncers you had capped. He built maps with information to show all of the unique one of a kind munzees so players could find them easily and plan trips to cap them, or just monitor them from home for fun. The most recent, and fun, was for the Golden Tickets.

Griff’s daily routine included checking his treehouse and Skyland for bouncers, searching the area for others and monitoring for any new gamepieces launched by the team. He was always quick to implement new features and tools on his website. He worked well with Sam, the creator of Cuppazee, who will be helping the team with the Eeznum website and possibly incorporating some of his tools.

Outside Munzee Griff was an avid wind surfer and enjoyed spending as much time as possible on the water. He was a gamer at heart from the earliest gaming systems through to the most current. Over the last 3 years he spent countless hours on Fortnite playing solo, or online in squads with Rob, and Louise’s two boys Charlie and Harry. He was recently getting into making YouTube videos of those matches and documenting his Fortnite highlights.

Memorial Garden

Griff will be missed by his family, his friends, the Munzee team and community. The team is building a memorial garden but the location hasn’t been chosen yet. We hope you’ll check back next week to deploy a munzee in his memory.

Update November 24th the garden is ready, click here for the spreadsheet. Thanks to Dale from Space Coast Geo Store for the help building it.

Food for Thought

This may not specifically apply to Griff’s shared georiffles account because Lesley continues to play and we hope she will. His passing has reminded us of some feedback we’ve received from players over time. Specifically requesting a change to Inactive accounts to those that own bouncers: you may recall that when a player is Inactive, at certain times throughout the year their bouncers will return as RetireMyths, Zombie Pouch Creatures, and Phantom Flats. Instead of those undead-inspired bouncers, it was suggested that the bouncers return as angel versions of themselves. We thought this would be a good starting point for a new type of account status — rather than getting rid of the current way Inactive accounts work, as accounts can become Inactive for a variety of reasons — we can create a “Memorial” status or something like it. We are currently in the brainstorming phase for this feature, but we’ll definitely announce any updates when ready.

He also mentioned in his POTW post a wishlist item of a special pin for those players who reached 1 million points. It’s been a long time since that was considered so it’s back on the table for conversation.

We think Griff would be happy that his work will continue on, and his ideas and life will inspire future growth in the game he loved so much. Our sincere condolences to Lesley, and to Griff’s family and friends. May he rest in peace.

-Team Munzee

Put Pen to Paper — or Rather, Fingers to Keys — With Craig’s Flat Object!

At MHQ, we like to keep our players on their toes. We had quite a gap between the Flat Disc Golf Basket and the Flat Flashlight, and now, just over a month later, another new Flat Object?! Well, this month is National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo, so we couldn’t pass up this opportunity, as you’ll see! The rest of the MHQ staff has been using their spare moments thoughtfully designing their own Flat Object, so we hope you keep an eye out for them as they are released!

The fourth Flat Object is brought to you by Craig, the CEO! Don’t be intimidated by his title — Craig is one of the more outgoing members of the team who enjoys chatting with players at Munzee Events and learning what makes them tick (not that the rest of us don’t enjoy it — it just seems to come naturally to Craig, without any shyness or awkwardness). For those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know him, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

In his spare time, Craig turns to writing to give his creative juices an outlet. Did you know that he’s written plays that have been produced by theater companies?! It was definitely exciting for us to learn! For his Flat Object, he decided on a beloved symbol of writers everywhere — the Typewriter! Read on to learn more!

Flat Typewriter Details

The Flat Typewriter joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, blastable

Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own.

Deploy: 19 points

Capture: Split 86 points with a minimum of 19 Points (Maxwell Smart’s Agent Number)

CapOn: Split 86 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat Typewriter munzee, turn on your “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types” filter. For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat Typewriter, which feature actual books and plays written by Craig. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy collecting all these written works and learning a bit more about Craig in the process!

Munzee on!

More Evolutions for Mitmegu!

With the release of the Void Mystery last month, all the conditions for NEW Mitmegu Evolutions (aka “Megu-lutions”) to emerge have been met! To celebrate we’ve also expanded how many Mitmegus you can own! Mitmegu and other shape-shifting friends have also been added back to the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE! Read on to learn more!

NEW Evolution Details

As before, unlike other Pouch Creatures, Mitmegu will change forms depending on what it lands on and capture streaks will not impact the changing critter’s evolution.

With the addition of these evolutions, the regular Mitmegu is now only cappable on Greenies.

However, if the Mitmegu lands on an Elemental Mystery, it will change forms!

  • If Mitmegu lands on a Water Mystery it turns into Jootmegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on an Earth Mystery it turns into Rohimegu
  • If Mitmegu lands on a Fire Mystery it turns into Lokemegu
  • NEW! If Mitmegu lands on an Air Mystery it turns into Ohkmegu
  • NEW! If Mitmegu lands on an Electric Mystery it turns into Murinmegu
  • NEW! If Mitmegu lands on a Void Mystery it turns into Urgasmegu

As a refresher, the points for Mitmegu and its Megu-lutions are as follows:

  • Mitmegu
    • Deploy: 250
    • Capture: 200
    • CapOn: 100
    • CapOn (Host Owner): 50
  • Megu-lutions
    • Capture: 400
    • CapOn: 100
    • CapOn (Host Owner): 50

Mitmegu will retain its number when it changes, and if you upgrade and change its name it will keep that name on all forms. Players can cap Mitmegu on their own munzees as well. You can find Mitmegu by turning on your “All Expiring Specials,” “All Limited Edition Specials,” or “All Pouch Creatures” filters. This new Pouch Creature WILL be attracted to physical magnets, but only as Mitmegu on Greenies.

Badges

Like the first batch, there will also be three badges to earn per variant. This means there are now 22 badges in the Mitmegu line (1 deploy badge + 3 capture badges * 7 forms).

Here are the first capture badges for the new Megu-lutions:

Shape Shifters Return to Store!

Remember you can now own multiple Mitmegu, so they have been added back in the Freeze Tag Online Store from 12:00 MHQ on Monday, October 4th to 12:00 MHQ on Monday, November 1st! You’ll find our other shape-shifting Pouch Creatures on sale as well!

 

The Mitmegu and its Megu-lutions are from our sister app WallaBee! Learn more about it and the other Pouch Creatures at our Help Guide article.

We hope you look forward to seeing some new creatures on the map!

Munzee On!

Are You Afraid of the Dark? Fight Back With Tamara’s Flat Object!

Time flies when you’re having fun! We’ve certainly enjoyed playing with Robbie’s Flat Disc Golf Basket — it had its own special, limited-time scatters, and was also part of the most recent Flat Day the 13th! Can you believe it was released all the way back in April?! The rest of the MHQ staff has been using their spare moments thoughtfully designing their own Flat Object, so we hope you keep an eye out for them as they are released!

Tamara’s Flat Object features a humble tool you probably have in your home. As a fan of the mystery and horror genres, she’s created a Flat Flashlight game piece that should keep you well-equipped for the upcoming spooky season. Read on to learn more!

Flat Flashlight Details

The Flat Flashlight joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, blastable

Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own.

Deploy: 19 points

Capture: Split 96 points with a minimum of 19 Points (the year Scream came out)
