A Challenger to Cyborg Santa Has Appeared + Cyber Munzday Info!

As we mentioned in our posts yesterday on social media, we’re still enjoying a break from our usual duties today (hopefully you are too) — so this is some pre-scheduled programming! If you’re jealous of Holiday Card Collectors Club members because of the super-cool Cyborg Santa, but aren’t ready for the commitment, or if you just enjoy collecting robot toys, we’ve got an option for you! We’ve also got some info on the promotions we’re planning for Cyber Munzday, so make sure to read all the way to the end!

Cybersaurus Rex

Our solution to deliver Christmas presents in a contactless manner all around the world was a good one — build an army of Cyborg Santas! But an enterprising elf — who may or may not have marathoned the entire Jurassic Park film franchise — applied the same technology to some T-rex prototypes, not knowing that part of their AI had already been programmed to mimic real T-rex behaviors! If you’d like to take a Cybersaurus Rex off our hands, it is available at the Freeze Tag Online Store as an individual product!

This new temporary POB (tPOB) will be available for purchase for $5 ONLY on Monday Nov 30th — Cyber Munzday! These are limited to 1 per player.

Like the Cyborg Santa, the Cybersaurus Rex is a temporary POB. It will bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. It will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31, when it will be automatically archived on your account. If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

  • Deploy: 750 points
  • Capture: 300 points
  • CapOn: 150 points

This fierce foe is ready to fight! He loves the sound of wrapping paper being ripped up and tearing silky gift ribbons to shreds! Stop the Cybersaurus Rex in his tracks at the following munzee types:

The Cybersaurus Rex will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Cybersaurus Rex on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Cybersaurus Rex visits you. However, Cybersaurus Rexes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to either Physical Magnets or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. You can access Cybersaurus Rexes under the “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.

Badges

All players who purchase a Cybersaurus Rex will also receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

We hope you enjoy this newest invention from the MHQ Workshop!

Cyber Munzday

As noted above, the Cybersaurus Rex tPOB will be available starting at 00:01 MHQ on Nov 30th, which is Cyber Munzday!

We’ve also got 2 other promotions you may be interested in:

If you enjoy the physical game, you can save 20% on any generic stickers in this collection: https://store.freezetag.com/collections/generic-stickers. Please note that the sale starts on Cyber Munzday, NOT today.

If you enjoy expressing your love of Munzee via fashion, you can get 500 Free Zeds with Apparel Purchases from this collection: https://store.freezetag.com/collections/apparel. Please note that you MUST add the Zeds to cart for them to be awarded.

Munzee on!

November 2020 GOTM Winners + December POTM Requirements!

This month has been a bit all over the place, but as it’s sandwiched between Halloween and Christmas, perhaps November was doomed from the start to be a strange transitional period.

For those looking forward to Christmas, we started off strong with the MunzPaks, which include the very popular Christmas Critters! We also featured a past Christmas Event in an amazingly detailed Event Spotlight by denali0407! Lastly, we released the Holiday Card Collectors Club, which seems to be well-received so far! We have some more things related to Christmas in the works, so be on the lookout!

For those who wish it was still Halloween, we released the popular Kill Them With Kindness Greeting Card and had a double points day to go along with it!

As for non-holiday related updates, we announced the results of our Zeecret Agent Competition, released 3 more nomads, and a much-requested new Places munzee, the Drink Depot!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the November Garden of the Month (GOTM), give a reminder for November Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for December POTM! The badges for November GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early December, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

November GOTM

As mentioned above, we’re caught between Halloween and Christmas, so the first garden we chose reflects this split. The second garden was chosen as it looks like the perfect Christmas gift for a young child! Remember that all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award the Claire’s Candy Canes Garden, designed by Jeffeth, and the Teddy Bear Garden, designed by CoalCracker7, as our winning November GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Claire’s Candy Canes by Jeffeth in Ontario, Canada

We love the way Jeffeth expanded on the idea of Candy Cane gardens into other special days! Don’t forget that you can get a slightly larger Candy Cane garden deployed at your Christmas Event: https://www.munzeeblog.com/get-your-christmas-greetings-done-early-with-this-new-card/

Jeffeth shared his thoughts behind the design:

A garden made for my wife, who always enjoys getting into the Christmas spirit early. 🙂

It was designed specifically as a November garden. The first candy cane represents veterans day/remembrance day held in November, the second has a lot of orange in reminder of Halloween which just passed, and the third shows the original candy cane and Christmas that is coming.

Also, such a unique use of a variety of different munzees showing there are so many ways to make the same thing.

Teddy Bear Garden by CoalCracker7 in Gettysburg, PA

What an adorable way to celebrate the birth of a new baby!

This garden was created for this year’s Teddy Bear’s Picnic event! The tummy was colored blue to celebrate the birth of former staff member Daniel Hammock’s son.

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

November POTM

November’s POTM requires the completion of 20 Daily ZeeOps Missions within the month. There’s still a bit of time left to earn this badge, so don’t fret if you are close!

Thank you for trying out the new Daily ZeeOps! You can expect to see the badge in early December. If you weren’t able to meet the requirements this time, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

We hope you enjoy what the updated ZeeOps program has to offer! To keep things fresh we’re planning to change up the missions and rewards in the future, so be on the lookout!

December POTM Requirements

This month’s POTM requirement was suggested by a player, and we thought it would be a great fit for the season of giving. We want to hear about Munzee acts of kindness! For December Player Of The Month we want you to send in stories about times your faith in humanity was restored (or perhaps you were the restorer of faith to someone else!) while playing Munzee. We know our player community is full of great people, so we’re expecting to receive a lot of submissions! Please send your stories to the Google Form at this link: https://forms.gle/JqF1LPaft6G6yeBAA

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

We hope you’re excited for what December has in store!

Munzee on!

Welcome Walla EggZ – Suitable For Children of All Ages!

Last week we announced our special Holiday Card Collectors Club, and we’re happy to see many of you have joined! We’re looking forward to seeing a lot of Greeting Cards and Cyborg Santas on the map for everyone to cap (there’s still a lot of time to join). But that’s not the only thing we have planned for December! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on November 24th, Walla EggZ will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 15th.

A total of 798 Walla EggZ specials will be unleashed! That breaks down into 399 virtual Walla Joy Eggs and 399 physical Walla Surprise Eggs. Though there will only be one icon for each type shown on the map, there are a possibility of 8 different icons that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Greeting Cards work. Also similar to our World Laughter Day specials earlier this year! They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

Each of the 8 icons will correspond to a different fun-sized toy or candy! Will you be able to collect them all?

You can find these treasure-filled treats bouncing to the following:

Points

  • Capture: 78 points
  • CapOn: 39 points

Walla Joy Eggs will be attracted to Virtual Magnets, while Walla Surprise Eggs will be attracted to Physical Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

There is also a line featuring 5 new badges to earn. 3 are based off overall captures of Walla EggZ specials; the remaining 2 are based off capturing certain fillings. The first badge in the series appears as follows:

Box O’ Walla Eggz- Capture 1 Walla EggZ special.

It’s up to you to figure out the exact requirements for the remaining 4 badges! Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

Munzee Toolkit MunzDay: Ulifredo

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help!

The week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes to us from Ulifredo, who hails from Germany. With only 4 months of Munzee experience, Ulifredo has amassed more than 300,000 points, 200 badges, and 100 deploys. He’s also made some great progress towards the Capture Super Streak, as he’s managed to cap something every day from just a few days after he started! Ulifredo has a compact kit perfect for his preferred mode of transportation! Read on to learn more about this charming new player!

Ulifredo Toolkit

Hello! My Munzee name is Ulifredo, that was the name of my first cat. I am from Germany. I’ve only been playing for 3 months (at the time of writing — we received his submission in October), but I’m completely hooked!

Like many people in this country, I use the bike a lot. It is very convenient to quickly capture rare bouncers (before others :)), avoiding traffic jams. To orient myself while riding, I have that phone holder for the handlebar, where I visualize the Munzee map.

Since I need free hands, I carry that fanny pack (or belt pouch), which is very light and with enough capacity for all the things I need. These are:

  • A mask (in the flat back pocket). Maybe you do not need it if you go to a solitary area, but just in case.
  • Power bank. The cable has an extension to recharge the phone comfortably while riding.
  • Granola/cereal bars, in case you miss your lunch (or even your dinner). When you munzee, you know when you start, but you don’t know when you will finish…
  • A fine pen marker (0.4 mm) to repair damaged or faded-out munzees (sometimes it works!!)
  • Pads to clean lenses (in the small front pocket), they are useful to clean dirty stickers, or to clean surfaces when you deploy.
  • And of course some generics (also in the small front pocket) to QRew/ZeeQRew or simply because you never know when you are going to find a nice place to deploy.

Munzee on!

Share Your Kit!

If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at iloveyou@munzee.com with the subject “Munzee Toolkit.” Make sure to include:

  • Your username and where you are from.
  • A few high quality photos.
  • A list of what each item is and how you use it.
  • What made you decide to use those items.
  • Any other relevant details.

Please feel free to include as much information about your gameplay as you wish to share! We want to see your creativity and learn how you play, so show us what you’ve got! And for Munzee tips and tricks, you can always check out our Help Guide articles!

A big Munzee thank you to Ulifredo for sharing his Munzee Toolkit! If you live in Germany or have the good fortune to travel there in the future, try to find some of his munzees, or deploy some for him to cap!

Munzee on!

Munzee Toolkit Thurzday: Jawillia

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help!

The week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes to us from Jawillia, who hails from Niceville, FL. With over 4 years of Munzee experience, Jawillia has amassed over 6.5 million points thanks to her active gameplay. Despite having deployed over 1,000 munzees, Jawillia has created a simple toolkit that works well for her and her husband! Read on to discover their essentials!

Jawillia Toolkit

My Munzee name is Jawillia. The name has followed me from the earliest days of my IT career, when jobs were run via Punched Cards, and took days to get back. So that tells you I’m not young. Munzee is the best thing that happened to old age. It is the one hobby that you can continue to do past the point that your body says no to so many others. We have had to change how we Munzee, and especially in these days, but it is still one of my leading sources of fun.

Our Munzee toolkit is the same for each car. The bag was chosen because it holds readily uncut sheets of 25 micros, a pair of childrens pointed end scissors, a flashlight, and typically a few personal Munzees. We keep the different types of Munzees we plan to use sorted with plastic bags inside the case. It fits easily in the glove compartment, and then in my hubby’s pant’s pocket, or a jacket pocket when we’re away from the car.

Share Your Kit!

If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at iloveyou@munzee.com with the subject “Munzee Toolkit.” Make sure to include:

  • Your username and where you are from.

A big Munzee thank you to Jawillia for sharing her Munzee Toolkit! Next time you’re in Florida, swing by Niceville and cap some of her munzees, or deploy some for her to cap!

Munzee on!

Treat Yourself With a Holiday Card Collectors Club Membership!

The week before Black Friday and Cyber Munzday is prime planning time for your upcoming present purchases, so we’re here to remind you to get something for yourself too! If you’re a fan of our Greeting Card munzees, we’ve got just the thing! We are excited to introduce the Holiday Card Collectors Club (HCCC), which you’re able to purchase starting NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

Maybe you were preparing for another Advent Calendar? Well, this year, we’ll be sending goodies to you every day during the month of December! Why the name change? As this covers more than the traditional Advent period, we felt that the “Advent Calendar” name didn’t quite fit. In addition, also unlike Advent Calendars of the past (2018, 2019), Club members will receive virtual items only. While there’s no denying that getting something in your real-world mail is always special, we felt that this would be more appropriate given the current situation, and just a less stressful option for all involved — we don’t have to worry about shipping things out by a deadline, and you don’t have to worry about packages being stolen or being held up in customs!

Mail Call!

In an attempt to keep some of the magic, we’ve also created a totally new game piece to deliver Collectors Club items! The Holiday Mailbox Munzee is guaranteed to deliver this holiday season!

Sure, we could have just decided on adding things directly to your account on an automated schedule — but where’s the fun in that? We wanted to give you something to cap each day too (like the Skyland and Places munzees). When you deploy this new game piece nearby it will only be visible to AND cappable by you. To ensure that you are able to capture this new game piece each day, you’ll also be able to update its location if you’ll be traveling at any point during the month. We really don’t want you to miss out! It is very important you capture it each day during December.

It’s worth 100 deploy points!  When it comes to captures you’ll receive 10 points before December; mystery number of points during December. The mailbox can be captured up to 1000 feet away and is found under the Virtuals filter but ONLY visible to the OWNER. The holiday mailbox will be archived at the end of December or early January. THE HOLIDAY MAILBOX MUST BE DEPLOYED IN APP!

How the Holiday Mailbox Works:

Starting December 1st at 00:01 MHQ, each day you cap your Holiday Mailbox you will be awarded a different holiday themed Greeting Card capture, similar to the World Laughter Day specials. Please note that you’ll only be able to earn that specific card on that day, so you really don’t want to miss a day. Once you cap that card you’ll earn points, and depending on which tier of Club Membership you purchase you may also get some extra prizes!

There are 3 tiers of Club Membership you can purchase HERE:                                        You are only able to purchase ONE tier per player account.

  • Tier 1 “Capper” is available for $5 and includes the NEW Holiday Mailbox, which will deliver 31 Greeting Card munzees for you to capture.
  • Tier 2 “Giver” is available for $15 and includes everything in Tier 1 PLUS a matching Holiday Card each day for you to deploy, maybe near a friend? That’s 31 new cards to deploy on top of the 31 you can cap! You’ll also get some special bonuses scattered throughout the month, which could be double points days, exclusive specials or scatters to cap, credits or undeployed munzees, etc.
  • Tier 3 “Collector” is available for $25 and includes everything in Tier 2 PLUS all bonuses we have planned (some that Tier 2 will not have access to), AND a special Cyborg Santa temporary POB deployed from your account on December 1st! The bonus rewards will be well worth joining this tier over the previous two. We’ll release more details about Cyborg Santa closer to the launch date, so stay tuned!

Once you’ve decided on a Tier, you can purchase it in the FT Store! Please make absolutely sure you’re satisfied with the Tier you select before purchasing, as we may not be able to change it. You may only join one tier. You will still be able to purchase these Club Memberships into December, but you won’t be able to earn rewards from the days that have passed. We suggest purchasing your Club Membership as soon as possible to start learning the mysteries of the mailbox and prepare for December fun!

Join us in celebrating the entire month of December with 31 days of joyous surprises! Are you ready to join the Club?

Munzee on!

Event Spotlight: Scrooged at Central Market

Earlier in the year we featured Primdahl’s Covid-19 Påske Special event, which had some great tips on how to plan and hold events in the current situation. Now that it’s been half a year since then, and the situation hasn’t really changed, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit those tips and also get some more! denali0407 has a wealth of information written for you here, so we greatly appreciate the time and effort she took to share! Also, don’t forget about the new Christmas Event Greeting Cards and Candy Cane Gardens we posted about last month, which might make setup a bit more convenient! And now, without further ado…

Today we’re featuring the Scrooged at Central Market event, which took place on December 6, 2018 at Fort Worth, TX and was hosted by denali0407, Roogles, Werewulf, and Brandikorte.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

“Scrooged at Central Market” was our Christmas 2018 event and featured one of my favorite badges ever (thanks, Trish!). Working within the madness of the Christmas season, this one was scheduled for a Thursday evening at a tried-and-true event site (where chocolate covered cherries can be found – and what event cannot be made better with chocolate covered cherries, I ask you?).

(Brief. You said brief, and I [mostly] delivered. Hallelujah!)

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

Provide something for attendees to DO! Eventzee is ideal, especially when your clues tie into both the event site AND other attendees. Clues that entice players to interact with each other, and even to work together to figure out the necessary photos to stage, make it easy for people to get to better know their fellow players. Or to spend some silly time with the folks they already know and love. Either way works. The more outrageous the clues, the better the stories when people regroup!

Also provide fresh Munzees to cap. Virtual gardens work great, but it’s also a really good idea to blanket the area with physical Munzees when possible. If you place your event Munzees among the physical Munzees, the payoff for both attendees and deployers is even greater.

Plan early, when and if possible, and spread the word far and wide. Even tiny events can become the stuff of legend when you can manage to draw folks from all over the area. Catching up with seldom-seen faces is priceless. But those folks need advance notice, so do them a solid and give them an early heads-up.

Bear in mind the time of year and the likely weather you’ll face, and make necessary provisions. If it’s 7th level of hell hot, then water. And shade. And sunscreen. If it’s a blustery 42° (hey, that’s frigid for us here!), then move indoors. We typically like to have restaurants available, preferably with outside seating. (We liked to provide opportunities to social distance before it was The Thing To Do.) Corners and nooks and tables for two are an introvert’s dream. Adapt to the occasion and people will rise to that occasion!

What made your event unique?

This “Scrooged at Central Market” event all but created itself when a line from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol randomly came to mind: “If I could work my will, every idiot who goes around with ‘Merry Christmas’ on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!” From that, the badge was born, and everything else fell into place. Central Market is a grocery store with upstairs seating, outside seating, and Christmas displays galore. It seemed a natural fit for our needs.

This was one of our smaller events, which made it more intimate and cozy. We were able to use some of the time not just to socialize, but also to plan for some rather larger upcoming events in the area. Teamwork. It’s a beautiful thing.

We also tried something different that could really only work with a small event. Attendees were provided pen and paper and were asked to write down something they liked* about at least two of their fellow Munzeers (we were all fairly well familiar with each other, you see) and then surreptitiously, anonymously place it in the appropriate person’s candy dish (I say that like it was a thing of porcelain beauty – um, it was a red Solo cup) to find and digest later, with their sweets.

*All part of our ongoing efforts to, “Give me an occupation or I shall go mad!” (Bonus points to you, if you can name that movie.)

The Eventzee for Scrooged was particularly sublime (thanks to a brilliant co-host). It included various displays and items located throughout the event site and made for some interesting debate about loopholes, intent, and the spirit of the thing, post-event debriefing in the parking lot (the best events *do* have post-event chatter in the parking lot that goes on long after the venues close for the night, of course!)

I would be remiss if I did not mention that the weather for this particular event seemed sent from Scrooge himself: it stormed. Naturally. I say this because I feel I can never thank those folks enough who braved rush hour traffic in the pouring rain to get themselves to this event (hey, thanks again, guys!). [There. That should do it. Maybe?]

{You didn’t specify brief. This is all your fault.}

Would you like to highlight any future events you’re hosting?

We look forward to chatting loudly at each other from separate picnic tables and looking each other over to make sure we still appear to be (“appear,” being the key word) halfway sane(ish) after our long absence from this thing we used to know as a social life. On the plus side, who can tell we’ve aged 10 years in the last 8 months, when we’re 50′ apart? Silver linings, I tell ya. They’re a thing. A thing we aim to enjoy.

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1603381733/

This is our Ode to 2020, AKA the dumpster fire in which we are fully engaged at present. There will be the makings of an aptly designed garden for us to cap (feel free to deploy, and we’ll cap the tar out of them. Thanks!). We’ll also have at least a dozen physical event Munzees to cap. Think “little fires everywhere,” if you lean towards visualization. Who knew that 150′ proximity between event Munzees would one day be ideal? And to think we used to grumble. Now we respect what Munzee teaches us about distancing.

Attendees will be asked to kindly wear masks and if that doesn’t suit, then feel free to visit the site at any point during the week this event will be live. We will also have the usual hand sanitizers, spare masks, etc. for those folks willing to brave the presence of other (socially distanced) humans. The non-human kind need not be masked. Yes, dogs are welcome. Ferrets. Iguanas. Whatever comfort pet you’ve adopted during this siege. Bring ’em on. Show ’em off. Forgive us if we do not get close enough to pet. Maybe next time for that touchy, huggy thing we used to take for granted.

Meanwhile, attendees who take photos on the pink event indicator may just find themselves surprised by a little something post-event. Yes, we may just bribe – uh, *entice* – attendees to be social in different ways. Throw it out there, see what sticks, right?

Together we’ll figure out how to navigate these funky times in which we are a’livin’ and cap ourselves some Munzees along the way, yes? Yes!

Thank you to denali0407 for being such a great host and submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!

Christmas Critters

Like the Aussie Animals, these Christmas Critters are temporary POBs. Unlike Aussie Animals, they bounce to either physical or virtual munzees, depending on the MunzPak you purchased. They will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31, when they will be automatically archived on your account.

  • Deploy: 500 points
  • Capture: 200 points
  • CapOn: 100 points

Baby Hippo Christmas Critters Munzee
Physical MunzPak

She may not be the most traditional Christmas animal, but we give her an “A” for effort with her beautiful red bow! Plus, how could you say no to those eyes? This aquatic Christmas Critter paddles to the following:

  • Treehouse
  • Greenie
  • Water Mystery

Baby Alpaca Christmas Critters Munzee
Virtual MunzPak

The fluffy white fur of this cute creature reminded us of a certain someone’s beard. That, along with its height and tendency to steal a certain someone’s hat, has caused momentary cases of mistaken identity! This cuddly Christmas Critter trots to the following:

  • Skyland
  • All Virtual Colors
  • Electric Mystery

Baby Reindeer Christmas Critters Munzee
Hybrid MunzPak

Despite being extremely clumsy, the baby reindeer has a very useful role to play. Knowing this, it works hard to be in tip-top shape for the annual gift deliveries. This popular Christmas Critter Munzee lights up the following:

  • Treehouse
  • Greenie
  • Ice Mystery
  • Skyland
  • All Virtual Colors

Christmas Critters will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Christmas Critter on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Christmas Critter visits you. In virtual form, Christmas Critters will be non-blastable. They will be attracted to Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Christmas Critters under the “All Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

All players who purchase a MunzPak (which will automatically deploy the respective Christmas Critter) will also receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Lastly, captures of these Christmas Critters will contribute to progress towards its own Christmas Critters badge line. You can sneak a peek at the first of these new badges below!

Orienteering Ornament- Capture 1 Christmas Critter of any type.

Remember these temporary POBs will only be available for capture until the end of the year, so cap as many as you can and keep them bouncing!

Munzee on!

October 2020 GOTM Winners + November POTM Requirements!

While September was the month of our worldwide Bash from the Past, we didn’t slow down for October at all! As hinted at with 2020’s Bash theme, this month was all about ZeeOps! On Day 1 we released a new badge line for Zeecret Weapons. A week later, we kicked off the Zeecret Agents Competition AND pushed out the Daily ZeeOps Update on the same day! While we’ve been actively monitoring the competition and making changes, we managed to add one more ZeeOps related release, in the form of new Nomads!

For fans of the color pink, we released a new Funfinity Stone, a new 20/20 Vision Munzee, and last but not least, Fancy Flat Lou!

As for seasonal-related releases, we had the Halloween Greeting Card, Deathly DeeZerts specials, and new options available for Christmas Events, including a 50-pack of Christmas Event Greeting Cards!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the October Garden of the Month (GOTM), give a reminder for October Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for November POTM! The badges for October GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early November, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

October GOTM

Both of the gardens chosen for this month made great use of the colors often associated with Halloween — orange, black, and purple — but used different Munzee types as their building blocks! Remember that all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award the Jewels Note Garden, designed by Neloras, and the Berlin Bat – Berliner Fledermaus Garden, designed by 123xilef, as our winning October GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Jewels Note by Neloras in Bratislava, Slovakia

Perhaps the Jewels used to create this garden include a birthstone?

This garden was created in honor of Neloras’s girlfriend, who has a passion for music and singing! It was completed in just 20 days in time for his deadline of September (her birthday or their anniversary perhaps?). While we received this nomination a bit too late for last month’s GOTM, we are happy to honor it this month, especially since the colors are perfect for Halloween!

Berlin Bat – Berliner Fledermaus by 123xilef in Berlin, Germany

123xilef does it again! Will we see a new spooky garden this year?

This garden was created for last year’s Say Boo and Munzee on (Berlin) event! We think the gradient background, which is reminiscent of candy corn, really makes the garden pop!

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

October POTM

October’s POTM called for scary stories! Since there’s still a bit of time left to earn this badge, here are a few reminders:

  • We want you to send in stories about some spooky situations when playing Munzee.
  • We always want people to be safe when playing, so hopefully we can learn some lessons from your scary stories!
  • Please send your stories to the Google Form at this link: https://forms.gle/zLqoudpAqsgzCfyS8

Thank you to all who shared their stories with us! You can expect to see the badge in early November. If you didn’t have anything to share this time, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

We loved reading your scary Munzee stories! Some were spooky, some were icky, some were stressful — but we appreciate them all, and they offered a unique insight into what can go wrong when Munzee-ing On!

November POTM Requirements

As we just released Daily ZeeOps last month, we think this is the perfect opportunity to encourage everyone to try it. Simply complete 20 Daily ZeeOps Missions within the month of November to receive the badge!

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

We hope you’re excited for what November has in store!

Munzee on!
