A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK HAS TAKEN OVER MUNZEE!

It appears Zombies have been attacking Greenies across the world! It all began at 00:01 when Patient Zero attacked Kardinya Primary in the most remote capitol city in the world, Perth Australia. McChickenNugget spread the virus to Melbourne Australia and then it was transmitted across the world, landing just half a mile from MHQ. Rob unknowingly infected the Munzee servers and it seems to be growing rapidly.

We don’t know what caused this infection, but here are the details we’ve been able to gather:

Zombie Emergency Engagement (Z.E.E.) officials have announced an all out Zombie attack on October 31 at 23:59 MHQ. This will wipe out the remaining walkers, but we all have to survive until then.

Zombies crawl to Greenies every 9 hours or when captured. According to research on the Zombies’ genetic code, an average of 19 new Zombies are created every 6 hours. This growth rate is manageable, but we’ll need your help taking down any Zombie you see.

To reward your bravery you’ll earn 68 points for every Zombie you capture. Hosts brave enough to attract a Zombie will earn 19 points for CapOns. Zombies will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets if you’re crazy enough to use them. Remember you can purchase up to 10 Magnets every 10 days.

As a commendation of your survival skills there are two badge ranks you can earn by capturing Zombies: Zombie Survivor and Zombie Hunter.

Z.E.E. officials have not revealed how many Zombies you must capture in order to earn these badges, but survival knows no limits.

We know it’s a lot to ask, but you must help Z.E.E. keep these Zombies at bay until they’re wiped out completely. We believe in you and good luck scouring the map.

Munzee on comrades!

Gallop away with Flat Hammock!

The Flat Friends are about to make a new pal! Flat Rob, Flat Matt, and Flat Lou will have to watch their gameplay, because the ban hammer is knocking- welcome the all new Flat Hammock!

This new game piece is based on the one-man wrecking crew Daniel Hammock, who has been running Munzee Support for 5 years. No one at MHQ can think of a time when they’ve actually called him Daniel, or Danny as his family calls him. He’s always affectionately been known as Hammock. Although he started off as a player, in Hammock’s own words, his “dream came true” when he was given “the opportunity of a lifetime” to work for Munzee. Even before officially joining MHQ, Hammock always took it upon himself to help out the Munzee community with any and all issues that would arise. He is best known within the community for swinging the ban hammer, punishing all those who break the code of conduct. To those who know him well he’s a fluffy unicorn of a guy who is very kind and giving. In his free time he enjoys taking his family out for crazy Youtube adventures for the Munzee Monthly Giveaway and giving away prizes each month for players to enjoy. He’s also an avid fan of unicorns, if the Flat Hammock design didn’t make that very apparent.

The first Flat Hammock has been released as a permanent special in Gettysburg, PA. Players will normally be able to purchase their own Flat Hammocks in the Freeze Tag Online Store for $4. In celebration of our new Flat Friend though all Flat Munzees will be discounted! Remember that Flat Friends are not always on sale, so stock up while you can!

The Flat Friends Sale will last until Friday at 15:00 MHQ:

  • Hammock: $3.75- originally $4
  • Rob: $3.75- originally $4
  • Louise: $4 (with $0.25 still going to charity)- originally $4.25
  • Matt: $4.75- originally $5

Players with a Premium Membership will also receive one free Flat Hammock as well.

Like the other Flat Friends, Flat Hammock has a unique release schedule. Hammock may love working for Munzee, but he keeps busy with a variety of other jobs as well. Like other Flats he will choose when Flat Hammocks are available on the map, which will be during his working hours, major event seasons and more. Please note that all scheduled times are based on MHQ time and are subject to change. Since we’re in the middle of Halloween events though, all Flat Friends are on the map until the end of the month and Flat Hammock will join in the fun too!

Here is the general breakdown of Flat Hammocks:

Points:

Deploy – 19 Points
Cap/CapOn – Split 80 points with a minimum of 10 points.

Proximity: 

Flat Hammocks’ proximity is not affected by other munzees except other Flats. Flat Hammocks must be 50ft from other players’ deploys and 150ft from your own deploys.

You’ll also be able to earn a variety of badges for capturing and deploying Flat Hammocks.

Deploy Badges:

Capture Badges:

Don’t forget about DOUBLE POINT FLAT FRIENDS WEEKEND! On Friday we challenged our players to attend events and capture event pins, and they successfully completed the challenge! There will be double points on all Flat Friends captures and deploys beginning October 26 at 00:01 until October 28 at 23:59. That’s MH-BOO Bash weekend too, so if you’re looking for somewhere to deploy why not check out McKinney, TX! The calendar is also full of events all month long!

Thank you all for your support of the Support Man himself. Our Flat Friends line of munzees would not be possible without the enthusiasm of our players. Of course a huge THANK YOU to Hammock for his dedication to this game. So beware the ban hammer, hug Hammock when you meet him and Munzee On!

Introducing Great Britain Iconic Location Munzees and Unique Attractions Places Munzee!

We’re excited to announce a new line of munzees based on Great British iconic locations! Just like World Heritage Locations, and Florida and California Historic Munzees, Great Britain Iconic Locations have been deployed at culturally significant locations throughout England with additional countries to follow over time!

Similar to the other tourism munzees, the GB Iconic Location Munzees are deployed by an MHQ account based on a database of historically and culturally significant attractions. This time we also had some help from Munzee player pilsleyguy who was gracious enough to gather notable locations! Thanks for all your hard work! These all new munzees will be deployed at a variety of areas like the Robin Hood Statue in Nottingham, Sir Steve Redgrave Statue in Marlow, and The Martian in Woking. Players will find these deployed across each of the counties in England.

When captured, players will earn 50 points. These virtual munzees are not blastable, so you’ll have to get out and learn a bit more about these iconic locations! If you notice any that are deployed in the wrong location please contact support with the name/URL of the munzee and correct information.

As we have stated before, we plan to continue to expand this line of munzees into more states and different countries as well in the coming months.

We’re also excited to announce a new Places Munzee for Unique Attractions. We want to see these at the weirdest roadside wonders the world has to offer! Get yours in the Freeze Tag Store TODAY at https://store.freezetag.com/products/places-munzees!

These new Places Munzees can be deployed at unique attractions across the world. These can include tourist traps like the World’s Largest Ball Of Twine in Kansas, or the Mirror Ball in England. Since these are a bit more obscure than other Places Munzees they will need to be searchable on Google Maps and may take a bit longer than usual to approve. Please bear with our support staff and if they decline your submission please work with them to locate the area for confirmation. You will receive an email with approval or rejection with a reason. Please see all details about Places Munzees in our help manual.

Places Munzees have a 1,000 ft capture radius, can be captured daily, but cannot be captured via Blast Captures. Please note that although these may be deployed at large structures or unique monuments, many notable spots may already be Historical Location Places or Museum Places.

Unique Attractions Places Munzees are available for $10, and you can purchase one of each type per account every 30 days. Remember that Places Munzees have recently had a point increase and you can purchase other types of Places as well!

Good luck on your iconic adventures! Munzee on!

Fairy Mythological Munzee and RetireMyth News!

ARGHHHH! Thanks to the seafaring skills of our worldwide players, the first Pirate Day community challenge was completed! As we promised, you all have unlocked the newest Mythological Munzee: The Fairy!

Fleeting Fairies:

Starting tomorrow September 20th at 10:00 MHQ time, a limited number of Fairy Mythological Munzees will be available in the Munzee Online Store for $25.00 each. Like the other Mythologicals, each player is limited to one (1) Fairy Munzee per account, and the sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership.

Much like the Mermaid, Fairies already have the Myth Upgrade built in. As the owner of a Fairy Munzee you’ll have the ability to “nudge” the creature to a new munzee up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day) but only after it has been on it’s host Munzee for 3 hours. The ability to nudge is only available for the owner via the webpage for the Fairy, not available in app.

You’ll also be able to rename your Fairy to whatever you want! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize these curious creatures. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct and family friendly environment! 🙂

These curious creatures are attracted to Greenies and regular Mystery Munzees, but they also fly to Air Mystery Munzees as well. The Fairy will bounce to these types every 12 hours or when capped.

Fairies are attracted to Magnets, which you can attach to greenies to increase your odds of finding myths and specials.

Details:

Name: The Fairy

Description: The Fairy Munzee bounces on Greenies, regular Mystery Munzees, and Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when capped. Each is numbered and owned by a Munzee player. Only 1 Fairy Munzee is allowed per account. You will also earn the Fairy badge for owning a Fairy Munzee.

Points:

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 100

There is not currently a traditional line of badges for capturing unique Fairy Munzees yet, but these will count toward the Myth Hunter badge line. Stay tuned for a line of badges similar to the other Myth Ranker badges soon. In the meantime, you never know what you might earn for capturing Fairies…

Soaring Sales:

In celebration of our new flying friend we’ve got some sales in store as well.

Check out the collection HERE: https://store.freezetag.com/collections/fairy 

  • We have all new Mystery Munzee stickers in stock for $7.50 for a block of five. Use the code FAIRYMYSTERIES to earn a free Air Mystery when you purchase a Mystery Munzee block. Please note that you will need to add the Air Mystery to your cart for the code to work and that this WILL count toward your allotted Air Mystery total for the month. The code will expire at 23:59 MHQ on 9/23.
  • We also have two new generic Urban Camo designs (Month/Year & Final Inspection) that come in blocks of three for $0.99.
  • As always there are also some high flying Fairy decal stickers to add to your collection for $0.75.

Be sure to load up on these so a Fairy can fly somewhere near you!

RMP*:

Alongside the release of the Fairy Munzee, we also have some news regarding some of our older Mythological Munzees.

Although we pride ourselves on our worldwide community of players, sometimes the weight of the game can be too much to handle. So as players become inactive for a variety of reasons, poor, innocent Mythological Munzees are abandoned to roam the world alone. It has fallen on us to give these Myths a new place to belong. Beginning Wednesday September 26th at 00:01 any myth owned by Inactive/Retired players will be archived until the player becomes active again.

 

……

 

……

 

Keep scrolling

 

……

 

 

……

 

There’s a twist though! The abandoned Myths have a strong will and at various points in time will come back to the world of the living as RetireMyths.

 

Take a deep breath

 

……

 

Keep scrolling

 

……

 

 

A new RetireMyth will be deployed on the account of Inactive/Retired players and at certain times they will haunt the map. These new creatures will award a new icon, but will not be worth any Deploy or CapOn points. When first released each will be worth 500 capture points, but that number will decrease by one point for each new capture.

RetireMyths will not be attracted to Munzee Magnets, but they will land on the same types as its regular Myth counterpart. There will be a new badge line for capturing RetireMyths coming soon as well as more information regarding when they will be live on the map.

With all manners of Myths coming and going at any given moment, be sure to keep your eyes peeled! Good luck and Munzee on!

Talk Like A Pirate Day Specials And More!

ARGHHHHHH! Wednesday September 19th be “Talk Like A Pirate Day” and ye better be ready to walk the plank!

Come Sail Away:

We’re excited to announce that from 00:01 MHQ on September 17 until 23:59 MHQ September 23 Pirate Ship specials will be sailing across the map!

In case you didn’t know, the current version of the Munzee app has the ability to set your in-app language to Pirate. This fun feature unfortunately will be walking the plank in version 4.0 though so we wanted to send it off in style.

500 Cargo Ship specials will bounce on Greenies every 6 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.

500 Treasure Ship specials will bounce on RUMs, Premium, and Physical Jewel Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. These will NOT be attracted to magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.

500 Ghost Ship virtual specials will bounce on MVMs, Emerald, and Amethyst Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Munzee Magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.

Ye landlubbers want badges, aye?! Well the west wind seems to be blowing your way!

There are a variety of badges you can earn for capturing Talk Like A Pirate Day Specials and these will also count toward the Specials Badges. There are a total of six badges you can earn throughout the allotted Specials timeframe. We’ll show you the three for capping each of the different Special types, but you’ll have to discover the other three* yourselves!

Brilliant Booty:

If it’s treasure ye want, you don’t need a map to find it!

The Freeze Tag Online Store has a Pirate Pack for luring out stranded sailors as well as a new Pirate Personal Tag too. Per usual these are in limited quantity so get yours before they run out! Read the details on the Pirate Pak to find out how to get a free diamond credit when you use “WalkThePlank” as a discount code!

In order to help ye quest for these Pirate pins, we are also changing up how you can purchase Munzee Magnets. A Magnet reset will take place Monday at 10:00 MHQ and moving forward players will be able to purchase up to 10 Magnets every 10 days. This will count for both Physical and Virtual Magnets, and it doesn’t matter when the last time you bought Magnets is; the reset will wipe your record clean as of Monday.

All Hands On Deck:

In order to up the ante for our worldwide crew of Pirates, we’re also excited to introduce two community challenges!

First, if our worldwide community is able to capture a collective 1,500 Pirate Ship specials of all three kinds, collectively, in the first 48 hours of setting sail, we will release a new Mythological Munzee next week! To sweeten the pot, the first 1,500 Pirate Ship special captures will be entered into a drawing to win one of the new Myths for FREE.

Second, if the community can capture a total of 15,000 Pirate Ship specials before they leave the map, you’ll unlock double points on Flats for a weekend in October! We won’t spill the beans on when exactly that is just yet, but it’s sure to be a scary good time. For reference, just over 13,000 bacon specials were captured in our most recent special icon fun! Everyone will have to work together to earn this special reward!

The Pirate’s Code:

Avast me hearties, set the sails, prepare the compasses, and sharpen ye swords! In less than half a fortnight our hunt for treasure begins! Yo ho, Yo ho, it’s a Pirate’s life for Zee!

*If ye read all the way to the end of the blog, we’ll give ye a hint on a badge. It’s said the key to unlocking Jewel-Eyed-Johnny’s hidden treasure is in the eye of the zee-holder!

*About motor neurone disease (MND) and the MND Association:

  • MND is a fatal, rapidly progressing disease that affects the brain and spinal cord.
  • It attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles no longer work. MND does not usually affect the senses such as sight, sound, feeling etc.
  • It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breathe.
  • It affects people from all communities.
  • It kills around 30% of people within a year of diagnosis, and 50% within 21 months.
  •  A person’s lifetime risk of developing MND is up to 1 in 300.
  • Six people per day are diagnosed with MND in the UK.
  • It affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time.
  • It kills six people per day in the UK, this is just under 2,200 per year
  • It has no cure. The MND Association was founded in 1979 by a group of volunteers with experience of living with, or caring for, someone with MND. Since then, we have grown significantly, with an ever-increasing community of volunteers, supporters and staff, all sharing the same goal – to support people with MND and everyone who cares for them, both now and in the future.
  • We improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers.
  • We fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND.
  • We campaign and raise awareness so the needs of people with MND, and everyone who cares for them, are recognised and addressed by wider society.

Bacon Day 2018 Specials and Evolution Munzee Point Increase!

Are you ready to celebrate six degrees of Bacon? We’re excited to announce that from 00:01 MHQ on August 28th until 23:59 MHQ on September 2nd all manner of pork product Specials will be bouncing around the map!

If you happened to be playing Munzee in 2013 you might remember our first Bacon Day special, but this time around we’re switching things up a bit. For instance, did you know that Bacon is different in other parts of the globe? In order to appeal to bacon lovers across the world we will have two physical specials:

888 “American-style” Bacon Specials will bounce* on Greenies every 6 hours or when captured. These sizzling specials will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets and you’ll earn 45 points for Capture and 45 points for CapOn.

999 “International-style” Bacon Specials will bounce* on Greenies and Premium Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. These slightly different slices of bacon will be attracted to physical Munzee Magnets on Greenies and you’ll earn 40 points for Capture and 40 points for CapOn.

*Please note that both American and International Bacon Specials will bounce worldwide and will not be limited to specific regions. 

In additions to the precious pork products there will also be 777 Flying Pig Virtual Specials floating to MVMs every 6 hours or when captured. These soaring swine specials will be attracted to Virtual Munzee Magnets and you’ll earn 50 points for Capture and 50 points for CapOn.

Per usual there are a variety of badges you can earn for capturing Bacon Day Specials and these will also count toward the Specials Badges. There are a total of six badges you can earn throughout the allotted Specials timeframe. We’ll show you the three for capping each of the different Special types, but you’ll have to discover the the other three yourselves!

We also have some new sets of porky Personal Tags available in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Per usual these are in limited quantity so get yours before they run out!

Please note that these Bacon Day Specials are different than the Pig Evolution Munzee line from the Farm Set, which also includes a Bacon level. We’re celebrating all forms of Bacon though, so we’re excited to announce that we’re updating the points on ALL Evolution Munzees as well! The point increase will go live at the same time the specials do and is for all Physical and Virtual Evos except the Golden Carrot, which was already increased earlier this month.

The new points will be as follows:

Level 1: 
Deploy: 20
Cap: 20
CapOn: 10

Level 2:
Deploy: N/A
Cap:  35
CapOn: 20

Level 3:
Deploy: N/A
Cap: 50
CapOn: 30

That’s not all though! In connection to the point increase we will also reset ALL Evolution Munzees back to Level One.  Please note that this will not allow other players to re-cap these munzees again, but the earlier stages will be available to players who have not capped that particular stage. The reset will go live with the point increase at 00:01 MHQ on August 28th as well.

So if you’ve stockpiled Evos, now is the time to get those deployed! Sticking to the theme we’d suggest capping and deploying a handful of Farm Set Evos if you have them. To help out we’ve also put together some Evo Packs which are available in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

Farm Set Evolution Sticker Pack: Random 10 count for $12.50- Discounted from $17.50
Virtual Evolution Pack: 9 count for $17.50- Discounted from $22.50

We hope you enjoy these sizzling Specials while they last! Try and keep your cholesterol down and as always, Munzee On!
