Protect Your Peepers in Tropical Locales With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

Sure, the beach is beautiful and all, but there’s so much preparation required before you go. One thing you must always do is put on sunscreen 30 minutes before you go outside, and reapply every 2 hours after. Since you can’t apply sunscreen to your eyes, our thirteenth 20/20 Vision Munzee has you covered! These travel-friendly shades were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Would you wear these glasses on vacation? Maybe in a different color?

Only seven Summer Shades will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing the Summer Shades will add this picturesque Sunny Sights badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

These shades boast polarized lenses — what does this mean other than the distinct dark tint when compared with regular lenses? According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, polarized lenses only allow rays of light that approach your eyes vertically to pass through, resulting in a darker image but markedly less glare. It is the lens of choice for fishermen, who spend a lot of time out in the sun! However, this same characteristic makes it difficult to see things displayed on LCD screens — so don’t wear these while driving unless you’ve confirmed that your car doesn’t employ LCD technology!

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these bouncing bifocals!

All about Hammock

Howdy everyone! Today we’re writing with some bittersweet news. July is going to be the final month for our player support hammer wielder, Daniel Hammock. He is very excited to welcome a new baby into his family soon and needs the time to focus on his family. Flat Hammock will still remain in play and will be on the map permanently as announced earlier in the week.

Let’s all celebrate Daniel and his work together on National Hammock Day, July 22 (yes that is a real thing). All activity on Flat Hammocks will be double points from July 22 through July 26. Thank you Daniel for all the years of player support and caring for the Munzee family! Best wishes and good luck for the future!

ZeeOps- Operation: Camp Out (July 2020)

Agents, we are happy to inform you that the mysterious transmissions we were receiving have successfully been decoded! However, the result didn’t give us much to go on… Thankfully, we’ve also had success cleaning all of our files (as far as we are aware), so we now have the resources to dedicate a large-scale effort in investigating the transmissions. This month, we’ll be sending you out on recon missions to gather some intel. Make sure to maintain your distance from others, even other agents, as the missions and your health may be compromised.

Depending on the Operation you choose, your requirements will be tailored to the environment you’ll be staking out. Basic and Advanced Operations will be surveying laboratories, so they will require Greenie and Evolution activity. Mega Operations will be surveying weapons factories, so they will require Clan Weapon activity. Ultra Operations will be surveying incoming cargo ships, so they’ll continue to require Fire and Ice activity, with some RUM activity as well. Like last month, we’ve placed the full mission details on pages that are only accessible with your agent login — the link is provided below.

July 2020 ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You will only have until July 31st at 23:59 MHQ to complete this month’s Operations. All four Operation types are available for this month- the Basic Op (3 days), the Advanced Op (7 days), the Mega Op (10 days), and the Ultra Op (14 days)!

You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Remember that if you hit a snag at any point in your Operation you can use the Mission Mulligan feature to keep going!

By completing any Operation this month you’ll earn the “Operation: Camp Out” badge.

 

This month’s Missions are found at https://www.munzee.com/ops/tasks

To start new Ops and view this month’s rewards please visit https://www.munzee.com/ops/new

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.

July 2020’s Resolution Is Not Just For Kids!

Now that summer is in full swing, have you been able to enjoy some of your usual hot-weather activities? While it’s certainly easier to break a sweat due to the temperature, we hope you aren’t slacking off on your fitness regimen! As we announced in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of being active. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to practicing a different exercise. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. This month’s badge may be tricky to get, but we believe in you!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. For July we are featuring jump rope! Like last month’s exercise, jogging, jumping rope is a great aerobic exercise and is also very simple to do. Another benefit from jumping rope is that it exercises your coordination and ability to focus — after all, maintaining the rhythm you have turning the rope and jumping over it at the same time is no easy feat, and it gets harder as you become more tired. The only downside (or rather, barrier) to jumping rope is that it does require 1 piece of equipment and a space bubble big enough to fit your entire body comfortably within the bounds of the jump rope while standing or jumping. If you don’t have enough space, you might get your rope caught on something and injure yourself or others.

What is the perfect jump rope length?

The answer depends on whether you’re jumping alone or with a group! If you’re jumping alone, the perfect length will depend on your height. According to LiveStrong.com, anyone shorter than 4’9″ should use a 7-foot rope, while anyone taller than 6’6″ should use an 11-foot rope. If, like most people, you’re somewhere in-between, check out the link to see how long your jump rope should be!

While it may be a while before you get to jump in a group, LiveStrong’s suggested rope lengths grow depending on how many people are jumping. For a single jumper with the ropes being turned by two others, a 12-foot rope should suffice. However, more than 4 jumpers will require at least double that length! If you’re jumping double dutch, these same recommendations apply — and both ropes should be the same length!

Before you attempt any exercise, it’s always a good idea to consult your doctor**. Good luck and Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

You’ll Be the Epitome of Casual Cool With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

While we’ve had a lot of wacky and unique eye wear options featured over the past few months, maybe they just aren’t your taste. The twelfth 20/20 Vision Munzee is bound to be appealing to a wide range of people due to their classic shape, which looks good on just about everyone! No wonder it’s the go-to choice for off-duty models and movie stars. These fetching frames were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Do you own a pair of these glasses? If not, would you consider them?

Only six pairs of Aviators will be deployed, and they will bounce to all colors of virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing the Aviators will add this chic Bird’s Eye View badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

If you’re not a fan of how aviators look on you, first — make sure that they fit right. The front part of the glasses should be around the width of your head. When wearing the glasses, the arms should be bent at a 90 degree angle or thereabouts — not much more (they might snap off!) or much less (the glasses will slip and fall!). If fit isn’t the issue, maybe lens shape is the culprit. Try going rounder or squarer depending on your face shape and preference. Round lenses tend to look better on people with squarer faces and vice-versa, as it visually balances your face instead of making it seem “too” round or square. Of course, this is just a guideline — maybe you like how you look with a certain lens shape, regardless of your face shape — you do you!

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these trendy lenses!

Pick Peaches and Pears from Earth Mystery Trees!

While fall is typically the season associated with a bountiful harvest, summer has its own delicacies to look forward to! Starting at 12:00 MHQ today, there’s a chance these new scatters will appear after capturing a Tree!

We’re also excited to announce new badges for capturing Tree Scatters. Our mouths are watering at the thought of stuffing our faces with caramelized pastries, whipped cream, and these flavorful fruits!

NEW Earth Mystery Tree Scatters

In March we introduced new scatters for the Earth Mystery, changing from Boulders to Trees. Trees are extra-special since they also release their own scatters once they are capped. It’s scatterception! We promised to introduce more scatters from Trees, so here they are, just in time for some syrupy summer desserts!

Like the Red Apples and Cherry Blossoms, Peaches and Pears are both worth 25 points for Capture. To clarify — Red Apples and Cherry Blossoms will remain as possible scatters for Trees, so you have a chance for any of the 4 types.

Are you excited to capture these juicy new pins? Check your map for any uncaptured Earth Mysteries near you! Don’t see any? Pick some up in our All The Mystery Pack and trade deploys with another local player or you can get 5 Earth credits in our new store item.

Badges

We’ve also created a new badge line based on captures of individual Tree scatters! You can check out the badge for Red Apple captures below, but remember since some of these types have been out longer than others the badge requirements won’t be the same for each!

Apple Pie – Capture 100 Red Apple Scatters.

As these badges are retroactive, you may have already met the requirements for some of them, and should see them on your account soon! If not, please wait a few days as our system catches up with awarding these new badges to everyone who has earned them, before contacting support.

We hope you enjoy this new selection of fresh produce!

Munzee On!

Complete Your Clan Wars Play Set With Trojan Unicorn Badges!

Last month, we announced the debut of the Trojan Unicorn and teased a new related badge line. The first Trojan Unicorns will be deployed soon (as long as players who’ve reached Level 3 collect their rewards!), so you’ll have a chance at earning these shiny new badges! Deploying a Trojan Unicorn will earn you the following badge:

To go along with this deploy badge, there are 6 capture badges to earn with an action-figure theme. These badges are for Trojan Unicorn captures, so be sure to track one down whenever it’s nearby! Think you can collect the whole set of CLAN WARS action figures? We won’t spoil all of the action figures, but you can check out the first badge in the line below:

Trojan Unicorn Action Play Set!- Capture one Trojan Unicorn Munzee

Lastly, there are also 3 badges to reward you for surviving burns from Flaming Arrow scatters! As there are only a few of these to collect, we’ll just show you the null image:

This brings the total number of Trojan Unicorn badges available to a nice, round 10! We hope you enjoy collecting the set!

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

Everything is Crystal Clear With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

These days, you might be doing a lot of online window shopping, especially if you’ve had the time to tidy up your house recently, and have things in bags ready to donate! Perhaps your attentions have been caught by something sparkly and shiny, awakening the hoarder dragon within you? Our eleventh 20/20 Vision Munzee will give you the ability to see the smallest imperfections! These precise jewel-appraising tools were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Have you ever seen one of these being used?

Only six Jeweler Loupes will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing the Jeweler Loupe will add this shiny Bright Eye badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

Why are these tools called “loupes”? Those who’ve studied the French language at a basic level might remember the word “loup,” which means “wolf” in English — but those words are not connected at all. However, “loupe” is French in origin! If you know a bit more French, you know that the French word “loupe” means “magnifying glass” in English, which makes much more sense. The word originally meant something closer to “imperfect gem,” but as you can see, its usage has evolved to refer to the item used to examine such objects.

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these bouncing bifocals!

ZeeOps- Operation: Smorgasbord (June 2020)

Agents, the process of cleaning the infected files in our databases seems to be going well! We announced last month that we were able to stop the virus’s spread, and now, a month later, that still rings true. Every day, we get closer and closer to a fully recovered HQ!

However, as you know, our work is never over. In the midst of all this, we’ve been receiving seemingly garbled transmissions from an unknown entity. In the case that these transmissions may be trying to inject rogue code into our systems, our engineers have been put to task on decoding them in a safe, staging environment. We will notify you if the engineers discover any relevant information to your tasks. For now, all remaining agents are tasked with completing more missions involving Fire and Ice munzees, Evolution munzees, and Gaming munzees to complete the file-cleaning process. To make the mission details more secure we’ve placed them on pages that are only accessible with your agent login, as you’ll see below.

June 2020 ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You will only have until June 30th at 23:59 MHQ to complete this month’s Operations. All four Operation types are available for this month- the Basic Op (3 days), the Advanced Op (7 days), the Mega Op (10 days), and the Ultra Op (14 days)!

You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Remember that if you hit a snag at any point in your Operation you can use the Mission Mulligan feature to keep going!

By completing any Operation this month you’ll earn the “Operation: Smorgasbord” badge.

Be Careful Not to Walk Into Anything With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

If the nostalgia from the Viewfinders released earlier in the month wasn’t enough to hold your attention, maybe a high-tech version would have more success! The tenth 20/20 Vision Munzee can be considered the child of the Viewfinder, as it fulfills the same function of encapsulating your entire field of vision with an artificial environment, but is still being actively developed today. These blocky blinders were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Have you tried on a pair of these in real life?

Only five pairs of VR Goggles will be deployed, and they will bounce to all colors of virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing the VR Goggles will add this sleek Virtual Vision badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

While it is not recommended to be mobile while wearing VR Goggles, many companies, such as CapToGlove and Cybershoes, have been developing controllers that make up for this limitation. CapToGlove’s aim is to make your hand the controller, with various hand gestures mapped to certain commands. Meanwhile, Cybershoes let you get in a little bit of exercise — while seated, you can move your avatar around by taking “steps.” The bottoms of the Cybershoes are designed to make it easy to slide your feet while seated. Both technologies definitely take some getting used to, but certainly something to try if you’re looking to enhance your VR experience!

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these trendy lenses!
