NEW Greeting Card Packs in the In-App Store!

With the release of the Motivational Message Cards last week, we thought it would be a great idea to show some love to the past card designs by making them more readily available in the app! If you’re looking to complete your collection, we’ve included some past Limited Edition cards, and some Open Edition cards that, while technically not “Limited Edition,” were still tough to get your hands on.

Please note that these packs are only available in the In-App Store, not in our online store.

We hope these packs will make deploying Greeting Cards much more convenient!

Munzee On!

The Final Tree Scatters Are Here!

Last 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 each season, so here are the final set!

NEW Earth Mystery Tree Scatters

Like the Pecans and Acorns, Dead Branches and Cardinal Feathers are both worth 25 points for Capture. To clarify — Pecans and Acorns will remain as possible scatters for Trees, so you have a chance for any of the 4 types. This means that Peach and Pear scatters are no longer available, but there’s a good chance you’ll see them again in the future!

We’ve also added three new badges: one based on Dead Branch captures, one based on Cardinal Feather captures, and a special badge based on a captures of both! We’re not going to reveal what these badges are, so you’ll need to snag some of these wintry scatters to see for yourself! You’ll still be able to earn badges for Pecan and Acorn captures as well, so be sure to grab as many as you can before the season changes and scatters are rotated out!

If you need more Earth Mystery credits to grow your area don’t forget they are available in the store!

We hope that you stay safe and cozy this season, whether you’re deep into winter or enjoying some sunny summer weather!

Munzee On!

ZeeQRew and QRew Players Need To Wake Up…

SleepZees that is!

Starting today, all ZeeQRew and QRew members will see SleepZees during QRewzdays! SleepZees will appear on select Virtual Colors and Flat Friends that haven’t been capped in a year or more. SleepZees are also blastable, which should help with those in hard-to-reach areas.

Clan Wars players will be interested to know that SleepZee captures will also count towards the QRewzee capture requirements!

Not sure how to qualify for ZeeQRew or QRew? Check out our Help Guide article!

We hope you enjoy re-capping some dormant virtual munzees near you!

Munzee on!

NEW Secret ZeeOps!

Agents, back in August we emphasized our switch from Monthly to Daily ZeeOps, but we still wanted to have the opportunity to create separate Secret ZeeOps in the new ZeeOps Program at various times throughout the year. This is because the special ZeeOps we made for the 2018 Advent Calendar was so well-received, even by players who didn’t regularly participate in ZeeOps! We hope to bring back some of the magic by creating more themed Secret ZeeOps for you to undertake in the future!

Secret ZeeOp Details

Before you head to your ZeeOps Hub to check things out, please make sure you have the latest Over-the-Air (OTA) update! All you need to do is force-close/force-stop the app — the next time you launch Munzee, you should see a progress bar (depending on how fast your connection is, it may only appear for a short while) which means the latest version is being downloaded and installed!

To keep things simple for ALL players, we decided on making Zeds the currency of choice for these Ops. This is why we prioritized the release of the ZeeCred Exchange page, which allowed players who had accumulated ZeeCred from the old ZeeOps Program to get use out of that currency.

As these Secret ZeeOps will cost Zeds, they are guaranteed to have BIGGER rewards than the Daily Missions, which are free. To kick off this announcement, Operation: WatchE.R. is available now in the [Secret] tab of your ZeeOps Hub for a limited time! You can see a preview in the screenshots below:

Please note that as we plan to create new Secret ZeeOps throughout the year, Operation: WatchE.R. will only be available for a limited time. However, if you’ve already purchased Operation: WatchE.R., you will be able to complete it and collect rewards even after it is no longer available for purchase.

Unlike previous monthly ZeeOps that required you to schedule Operations and complete Missions within the span of a day, Secret ZeeOps can be completed as quickly or slowly as you would like. Just click on the Mission to view the requirements and accompanying story.  As you progress through the Missions you’ll learn more about the story and advance throughout the Operation. Do you think you can reveal the mystery of the missing Walkie Talkie Watch prototype?

If you complete ALL the missions Operation WatchE.R., you’ll receive the snazzy badge below, along with the Walkie Talkie Watch Munzee (more info below!) and various other rewards listed in the app!

We hope you look forward to trying out Secret ZeeOps as they are available!

Edit with added info:
If you’re looking for the bullet points about this specific NEW Operation: WatchE.R. here they are…
There are 3 levels, level 1 has 3 missions, level two has 5 missions and level 3 has 7 missions. Each level ends with more prizes.
We may share this information moving forward with other Operations but possibly not.

Walkie Talkie Watch Details

The Walkie Talkie Watch is an all new Zeecret Weapon that will put you in contact with up to two Agents out in the field! Like all the other Zeecret Weapons, it is available as a reward for completing ZeeOps Operations!

Points

  • Deploy: 25
  • Capture: 50
  • CapOn: 35

When you capture a Walkie Talkie Watch, it will scatter 1 Undercover Agent nearby. You must rendezvous with that agent by capping it! Once capped, it has a chance of sending you to a Liaison Agent or ending your mission with “The trail has gone cold.” If the Liaison Agent is capped, it has a chance of giving you a Mini ZeeOp, like Dossiers and Infrareds.

The Agents will only be visible to the player who capped the Walkie Talkie Watch and will be deployed on the Walkie Talkie Watch owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet.

The points for Agents are as follows:

  • Undercover Agent
    • Capture: 100 points
    • CapOn: 100 points
  • Liaison Agent
    • Capture: 200 points
    • CapOn: 100 points

You can access Walkie Talkie Watches, Undercover Agents, and Liaison Agents by turning on their filter in “Physicals – ZeeOps”. Capping these new munzees will also contribute progress towards the overall Zeecret Weapon captures badge line!

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

2020 Yearly Leaderboard Badges!

At first glance, Munzee seems like a pretty simple game. Scan physical munzees to get points. Tap on virtual munzees to get even more points. There are different types of physical munzees and different types of virtual munzees that award you with varying numbers of points. Simple, right?

What’s not so simple is how to stay on top of all the numerous active players! While more established players do have an advantage in terms of deployed munzees (rake in those CapOn points!), they face difficulties in finding munzees to cap, especially if they are active in Clan Wars! Taking advantage of special points days, active Flat Friends days, and other strategies are necessary to maintain or improve their ranking.

We started this badge line last year to recognize the hard work (and play!) from those on top. After such a tough year, it only seemed fitting to celebrate those who came out on top despite the odds. We are happy to make this a tradition and recognize the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place on the overall yearly leaderboard for 2020! These accomplished players are, as follows:

  1. humbird7
  2. dt07751
  3. hunniees

Congratulations to humbird7 for taking home the top spot this time, and to the King and Queen of Munzee for successfully swapping their positions! You may recall that we gave them a shoutout just after Thanksgiving, for a slightly different achievement!

We hope this year will remain Munzee-filled for these three, and that everyone else reaches for the stars — after all, this could be you next year!

Munzee On!

Garden Gnomes for Home Sweet Home!

Did our announcement on Christmas Eve put a Garden Gnome on your wishlist? Well, the wait is over, and we’re excited to introduce them to you now!

Garden Gnome Details

The Garden Gnome is a temporary POB that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store for $12, and each month its price will decrease by $1. You can purchase 1 Garden Gnome every 28 days.

For the month of January ONLY, if you purchase a Garden Gnome, you will receive the Ice Hockey skin to upgrade your gnome for FREE. For the remaining months, you will need to earn skins by completing the previous month’s capture streak. You can change the skin on the gnome at any point (more info below!) as long as you have earned it.

Points

  • Garden Gnome
    • Deploy: 500
    • Capture: 250
    • CapOn: 150
  • Ice Hockey Garden Gnome
    • Capture: 250
    • CapOn: 300

You can find these kitschy cuties traveling to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, when a Garden Gnome has an upgraded skin, up to 3 NEW Gnome Hats may be scattered nearby when it is captured! For instance, when a Garden Gnome has an Ice Hockey skin it might scatter Gnome Hockey Helmets nearby.

The Gnome Hats will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Gnome owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These hat scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Gnome Hats are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

Garden Gnomes of ANY type will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Garden Gnomes on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Garden Gnome visits you. Garden Gnomes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Garden Gnomes by turning on your “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.

How to Change A Gnome’s Skin

You’ll be able to change a Garden Gnome’s skin in the app AND on the Munzee website!

In the app:

  1. Navigate to the Munzee Details of the Gnome you would like to change the skin of
  2. Tap on the […] button in the top-right corner
  3. Tap [Convert]
  4. Tap on your desired skin
  5. Confirm that you would like to use that skin in the following popup
  6. That’s it!

On the website:

  1. Click [Convert] on the Gnome you would like to change the skin of
  2. Tap on your desired skin
  3. Confirm that you would like to use that skin in the following popup
  4. That’s it!

NOTE: Changing your Gnome’s skin will remove the Gnome from the map and force it to bounce again, so if you don’t want to ‘nudge’ your Gnome, you should wait to convert it.
It’s also important to know that you ARE able to change your Gnome as many times as you like.

Badges

Garden Gnomes have 4 associated badge lines:

  • Unique type deploy badges — you’ll need to earn each month’s skin by keeping your streak up! NOTE: for January, we’re doing things a little differently since we aren’t using your December 2020 days of activity, but make sure to keep your streak up throughout January so you can unlock February’s skin!
  • Overall deploy badges — the more gnomes you deploy, the merrier!
  • Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned gnome!
  • Overall capture badges — capture as many gnomes as you can find!

You can see the first of each badge line below:

If you complete the capture streaks for each month (and make the initial purchase in January) you’ll have 12 different skins to choose from! So be sure to purchase one each month so you can have a complete bench of these athletic Garden Gnomes!

We hope these gnomes are the perfect finishing touch to your outdoor decor!

Munzee on!

There’s Gnome Way You Wanna Miss out on This!

This year, we continued two traditions started in 2019: Monthly Streak Badges in the form of Exercise Resolutions, and a set of Monthly Rare Specials, in the form of 20/20 Vision Munzees. We also started a new tradition of Monthly POBs in the form of Funfinity Stones, which have become beloved characters in the game.

For 2021 we wanted to streamline things by linking all 3 together with a common theme!

Keeping this change in mind, we wanted to make sure we still incorporated the things that made each of them special.

  • For Monthly Streak Badges, it was all about staying healthy by maintaining good habits, just like maintaining your streak.
  • For Monthly Rare Specials, we wanted an ongoing collection that built up throughout the year centered around a central theme.
  • For Monthly POBs, we wanted a unified set of characters that felt like a family.

So what’s health-focused, fits within a central theme, and comes in a lot of varieties? Well garden gnomes playing sports obviously! 2020 was a slow year for sports and traveling (even the Olympic Games got pushed back!) so we’re sending garden gnomes on the road to compete for gold! We’re excited to announce Sporty Garden Gnomes are coming in 2021!

We’re not releasing all of the details just yet, but we did want to give everyone a heads up to start your capture streaks on January 1st!

Garden Gnomes

As usual you’ll want to capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month to earn the reward. If you can make it through the whole month you’ll be awarded a badge and special item themed to that month’s activity! We’ll release more information on this special item and on how Monthly Rare Specials and Monthly POBs will be incorporated once we’re back in the office, but for now, here’s a sneak peek into what we have planned!

Please give a warm welcome to January’s Ice Hockey Gnome!

We know travel and sports are heavily limited right now, but we hope as you work towards this capture streak you can live vicariously through these charming gnomes! Perhaps you can find a way to watch or play your favorite sport** at home! We’re all in this together and if nothing else it will help you get one step closer to the yearlong capture and deploy streak badges. We’ll have a different gnome badge design each month, but try and keep up with your streak throughout the year! We believe in you!

We hope you’re excited to meet each month’s gnome and perhaps take home one of your own! 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! 

** MUNZEE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SPORTS-RELATED INJURIES

Put on These 20/20 Vision Munzees Before Looking Up Today!

To close out a year of 20/20 Vision, we’ve got some glasses to mark a very special occasion! These peeper protectors were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Do you enjoy watching eclipses?

Only twelve Eclipse Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to 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 Eclipse Glasses will add this eye-catching Solar Sight badge to your collection! Also, as of July we’ve released the details on the overall capture line — the post is HERE if you missed it!

According to NASA, today’s eclipse will only be completely visible from Chile and Argentina — any Munzee players lucky enough to be located there? If so, here are their safety guidelines on viewing eclipses. The main point is making sure to wear protective Eclipse Glasses at all times — the only point when it is safe to view the eclipse without glasses is when the moon is completely covering the sun and not even the tiniest sliver of direct sunlight is reaching you. This happens for a very short time — just a few minutes — so unless you have absolutely perfect timing and know exactly when to put your Eclipse Glasses back on, it’s better to not put your eyes at risk and keep them on the entire time you’ll be viewing.

If you’re not located in Chile or Argentina but are still interested in having an eclipse-viewing experience, try to find a livestream you can watch! While it’s not quite like watching it up in the sky, the upside is you don’t have to worry about protecting your eyes — though you may still want to read up on the safety guidelines above, so that you are prepared for the next occurence near 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. These are the last 20/20 Vision specials of the year, so make sure to be on the lookout if you’re a fan! We hope you look forward to what we have in store for next year!

Show us how you Munzee! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and mention us on Facebook (@Munzee) or Instagram (@munzeeapp). Good luck, and Munzee on!

Exchange ZeeCred for Game Pieces!

With the release of the Daily ZeeOps update in October, which eliminated the need for ZeeCred to participate in those missions, we promised to follow up with more information about ZeeCred usage in the future. We’re happy to announce that the day has come! From 12:00 MHQ today to 23:59 MHQ on December 31st, you can exchange your ZeeCred for select munzee types! Please note that this is an online-only feature. If you have no ZeeCred, no need to read any further. 😉

 

How to Exchange ZeeCred

  1. Make sure you’re logged in on the Munzee website: https://www.munzee.com/
  2. Head to this link: https://www.munzee.com/ops/
  3. In the top-right corner, you should see the total number of ZeeCred you didn’t use before the program ended.
  4. Below, you can choose the game piece you would like to redeem your ZeeCred towards
    1. Night Vision Goggles are worth 20 ZeeCred
    2. Briefcase Credits are worth 15 ZeeCred
  5. Click to confirm your redemption on any popups that appear
  6. That’s it!

We do not anticipate using ZeeCred as a currency in the future, so you will need to redeem as much as you choose to! If you’re wondering about any future Secret ZeeOps Missions (as we mentioned in this blog post) they will not require ZeeCred. These are the only two options for ZeeCred redemption and all ZeeCred will expire at the end of 2020.

We hope you enjoy spending your leftover ZeeCred! Stay tuned for more exciting ZeeOps news in the future!

Munzee on!

Hold These 20/20 Vision Munzees Up to a Bright Light Before Wearing!

If you ever had glow-in-the-dark stars, moons, and planets stuck to the walls and ceiling of your bedroom, we think these next 20/20 Vision Munzees are right up your alley! These phosphorescent frames were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Would you wear these at night?

Only twelve Glow In The Dark Glasses 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 Glow In The Dark Glasses will add this oozing with cool Night Vision badge to your collection! Also, as of July we’ve released the details on the overall capture line — the post is HERE if you missed it!

This munzee is based on the iconic shutter shades, which typically come in solid plastic colors. Shutter shades feel like a recent invention —  as Blickers.com notes, you probably associate them with Kanye West as he wore them in his “Stronger” music video in 2007, kicking off a new trend. But, like many trends of today, early forms of shutter shades go all the way back to the 1950s! They went by the slightly more elegant name of “Venetian blinders.”

We’ve put our own spin on shutter shades by using phosphorescent plastic! Ever wonder how this type of plastic achieves its otherworldly glow? Colourchange.com has a neat and simple explanation:

Phosphors radiate visible light after being energized and require exposure to light for a while before they will glow in the dark.

Phosphors then slowly release their stored energy over time. As they release the energy, they emit small amounts of light, which we see as an object glowing.

This is different from fluorescence, which will immediately stop glowing once the energy source is gone.

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!

Show us how you Munzee! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and mention us on Facebook (@Munzee) or Instagram (@munzeeapp). Good luck, and Munzee on!
