RUMbots and Blueprints and Cogs! Oh my!

Last month’s Spyderbot Squashing Initiative was successful in decreasing the number of Spyderbots on the map, but without changes to the Spyderbots themselves, the numbers have climbed back up again. To keep the bouncers more varied and fun for players to chase after, we’ve created a new credit called a “Cog” which will replace the Spyderbot as the Day 7 Daily ZeeOps reward.

Paired with Blueprints, you’ll be able to use those Cogs to deploy new tPOBs of your choosing. If you started playing Munzee more than half a year ago, you’ll be happy to know that past Blueprints you’ve collected will be of use! However, please note that tPOBs deployed using this new system have been rebuilt to offer a more consistent experience. This means things like point values and scatters remain the same as the originals, but expiration triggers and badge lines are different. If you missed out on any of those past Blueprints, you’ll find some of them available in the Freeze Tag Store. Like many of our other items, Blueprint availability will be on rotation.

If you have the right Blueprint, instead of using the 5 Cogs you’ll receive upon completing your Day 7 Daily ZeeOps mission to deploy a Spyderbot, now you have the option of saving up Cogs to deploy something more powerful, like a *L.A.S.E.R. Shark. The choice will be yours within the options given.

Don’t worry if you have any Spyderbots out on the map — those will remain. As mentioned above, moving forward Daily ZeeOps will award Cogs instead of the Spyderbot directly. Of course, not all tPOBs are created equal, so different amounts of Cogs are required to convert to each tPOB type.

You’ll find all the details and conversion rates at munzee.com/redeem. These rewards/rates may change from time to time. You will see your available list of blueprints on the Redeem page. If you don’t see the blueprint you’ll need to find the location to purchase or earn it. Cogs are currently only available as Daily ZeeOps rewards, but this may change in the future. There are many options out there for us to use and award these Cogs as prizes!

RUMBot Details

What better way to launch Cogs than with some new tPOBs to build? To continue support of our Authorized Resellers, we’ve developed RUMbots! Please welcome these very special swashbucklers color-coded to match each Reseller’s shop!

Similar to the Spyderbot, RUMbots are temporary POBs that will remain on the map until they have been captured 5 times. They will be available at our Authorized Resellers’ shops some time today. When you purchase a RUMbot  from a Reseller, you will receive a fully-built RUMbot that auto-deploys. You will also receive the Blueprint to rebuild it when you have earned enough Cogs in the future. Interested? You can get links to shop all of our resellers HERE!

Points

  • Deploy: 300
  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 100

You can find these worldly warriors sailing to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

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

Badges

Deploying a RUMbot will earn you the Blueprint badge. You can see the badge for the Gold’n Coins RUMbot as an example below.

There is also a line of capture badges that you can earn for RUMbot captures! You can see the first badge in this line below.

We hope you look forward to dueling these droids!

Munzee on!

 

*The 3 L.A.S.E.R. Shark blueprints will only be available through completing the Secret ZeeOps. Did you miss out on one of them? Stay tuned…

A Final Batch of NEW Greeting Cards for the Month!

This year, it’s been important to us to develop more products for our Authorized Resellers, who’ve done an amazing job making physical munzees more accessible to players all around the world! In February, we gave RUMs a much-needed update by creating a virtual version. In March, we created some fun variants on our line of Garden Gnomes themed around each Reseller! We didn’t want to let April pass by without another contribution!

We are happy to announce 4 NEW Greeting Cards are available for purchase! You can pick up Greeting Cards from our Authorized Resellers HERE. You receive multiple munzees from your single purchase. Read the details in the stores, or see below.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

We have 4 new Limited Edition cards for your deploying pleasure!

While these may have visual similarities with the Virtual RUMs, don’t get confused! These Greeting Cards lack the brown paper packaging.

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes to add a personal touch! While the capture message will contain your Munzee username as all Greeting Card capture messages do, we think typing in a more specific note will go a long way to creating a more unique and special experience!

This brings the current lineup of Greeting Cards available for purchase to the following:

  • Open Edition* (will always be available; ONE Purchase yields FOUR munzees)
    • Birthday
    • Get Well
    • Thank You
    • Congrats
    • Sorry / Sorry 1 / Sorry 2 / Sorry 3
    • Spring
    • Fall
    • Thinking of You
    • Knock Knock Joke
    • It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere
    • Wish I Was Here
    • Life Is Good
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Tech Issues (not available for sale)
    • March Into May Event (only available to March into May event hosts for their events)
    • Stay Home 2021
    • Picture Perfect (not available for sale)
    • May Flowers (until May 1)
    • GeoLoggers Reseller Card
    • Gold’n Coins Reseller Card
    • NEGS Reseller Card
    • SCGS Reseller Card

As a refresher, the point structure for Greeting Cards is as follows:

  • Open Edition
    • Deploy: 50
    • Capture: 40
    • CapOn: 25
  • Limited Edition
    • Deploy: 60
    • Capture: 50
    • CapOn: 30

Remember that these munzees will be archived 7 days after they are deployed, so make sure your intended recipient captures it before then!

For more information on the Greeting Cards, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Munzee on!

 

*Please note that we have combined all Open Edition cards into a single product on the FT Store. Moving forward all new Open Edition cards for sale will show up in this product, and you can choose which type of card you would like there. You can purchase all Open Edition cards HERE!

Reseller Garden Gnomes AND More Badges!

Our Authorized Resellers have let us know that they’ve gotten such amazing support from you, the players, with Fr057y and Virtual RUMs! With this year’s theme of Monthly Garden Gnomes, we thought it would be nice to include them in that as well! Please welcome these very special Garden Gnomes themed around each Reseller’s shop!

Reseller Garden Gnome Details

Like the other gnomes, Reseller Garden Gnomes are temporary POBs that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31. They will be available at our Authorized Resellers’ shops some time today. When you purchase a Garden Gnome from a Reseller, you will receive the base Garden Gnome with their respective gnome skin already equipped. However, you can still swap out the skins just like the other Garden Gnomes — refer to our original blog post if you need a refresher! Interested? You can get links to shop all of our resellers HERE!

Points

  • Deploy: 500
  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 300

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

Additionally, the Gold Miner Garden Gnome will land on all stages of the Treasure Chest Evolution.

Also like the other gnomes, up to 3 NEW Gnome Hats may be scattered nearby when they are captured!

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

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

Badges

As a reminder, 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! You’ll also receive these upon purchasing a Reseller gnome!
  • 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!

First, here are the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Aussie Explorer Garden Gnome:

The badges for the other Reseller Garden Gnomes follow the same pattern.

We’ve also extended the “Overall deploy” and “Overall capture” badge line — you can peek at the first of these new badges below:

We hope these Reseller gnomes are as beloved as their sports star brethren!

Munzee on!

Virtual Reseller Unique Munzees Have Arrived!

As we are just about a month away from the 5th birthday of Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs), we thought it was time to bring this special munzee type into the virtual fold! Like the Physical RUMs, you will only see the pin image below on the map and in the summary panel that appears when you tap on the pin:

Also like the Physical RUMs, once you tap to view the Munzee Details, you will see a pin image containing the logo/branding of the reseller it came from. The resellers will be launching this product at their own shops within the next 24-48 hours, we just want you to have all the information in advance. You can get links to shop all of our resellers HERE! Edit and Update: The virtual RUM is special because it is the first scattering virtual that is also *blastable (able to be capped by using a blast capture).

The points for Virtual RUMs are as follows:

  • Capture: 35
  • Deploy: 40
  • CapOn: 30

Similar to the Cyborg Santa, when a Virtual RUM is captured 1-3 NEW Reseller Packages will be scattered nearby!

The Reseller Packages will be visible to ALL players, not just the player who capped the Virtual RUM, and will be deployed on the Virtual RUM owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers, there are CapOn points for the owner! The Virtual RUM will count for clan wars and ZeeOps RUMs requirements. However, these package scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Reseller Packages are as follows:

  • Capture: 25
  • CapOn: 20

There is a badge for deploying each different Virtual RUM. The badges appear similarly to the Reseller Package pin icons shown above! Additional badge lines are coming soon for cumulative RUMs captures/deploys that will include all physical and virtual RUMs!

We hope you enjoy these new Virtual RUMs! Just don’t get too tipsy!

Munzee on!

*Due to the unique nature of a blastable scattering virtual, the number of scattered packages may be reduced in the future to save server/DB power and speed. Additional tweaks may be made in order to maintain the integrity of the game while preserving the value of the gamepiece.

Introducing the Freezer Burn badge!

We’re proud to announce a new challenge for our players: The Freezer Burn badge! You can earn this new badge by getting burned and frozen in the same day when capping the Fire and Ice Elemental Munzees.

The Freezer Burn badge is now live to earn, but it is not retroactive so you’ll need to prepare for some fresh burns and frostbite. We know this is no easy feat, so work with your fellow players and deploy Fire and Ice Munzees to better each others’ chances!

You can purchase an Elemental Munzee Pak in the Munzee online store, or buy individual elementals through authorized Munzee Resellers. Resellers will also have Ice Mystery Munzees on sale for 10% off.

Good luck and Munzee on!

 

Suffering from a brain freeze? Here’s a refresher on how each elemental effect works:

Fire Mystery Munzees

When you capture a Fire Mystery three Fires will then scatter to greenies within 1 mile. When you capture one of these Fires there is a chance you’ll extinguish the flame and earn 50 points. Unfortunately there’s also a chance you’ll get burned and LOSE 5 points. On the bright side you can earn badges for getting burned though!

Ice Mystery Munzees

Similar to the Fire, when you capture an Ice Mystery three Freezes will then scatter to greenies within 1 mile. Luckily you won’t lose any points for capturing a Freeze. Unfortunately there is also a chance you’ll be frozen and unable to play the game for one minute. Surviving the Ice Age might be worth it though because you can also earn some cool badges for getting frozen!

Introducing the Pirate Nomad!

When the Jewel Thief Nomad started traveling the world in search of jewels to steal in February, he paved the way for some of the less wholesome Nomads. After being followed by the Bellhop Nomad in March, it seems another has decided to set sail. Pirate Nomads have charted courses for RUMs around the world and are about to begin their journeys.

Starting tomorrow (April 4th) at 10:00 MHQ time, 10 Pirate Nomads will begin bouncing on Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs) every 12 hours or when captured. Like other Nomads, you will earn 100 points for capture of a Pirate Nomad and the owner of the host RUM will earn 20 points.

These badges will also count towards the Nomad Munzee Badge Line.

Details

Name: Pirate Nomad

How Many Are There: 10

What Does It Do: Bounces on Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs) every 12 hours or when capped.

Points:

  • Capture: 100

We hope you enjoy this new Nomad!

Beware the Fire…Mystery Munzee

Rob: Yote… Yote… YOTE!!!

Yote: Yes, sir. Mr. Imperial Leader, SIR!

Rob: What are you doing, Yote?

Yote: Munzeeing, of course, Imperial Leader!

Rob: Good to hear, Yote! We have a surprise for you.

Yote: A surprise?! Am I finally getting the Yote Munzee?!?!?!

Rob: Not quite, but close. We’re putting The Yote on some badges for a new Munzee type.

Yote: Badges?? A new Munzee?? Tell me more SIR!

Rob: It’s all below in the blog post, Yote. Thank you for all that you do.

Yote: Thank you, Mr. Imperial Leader!! I’m so money!!! YOTE


Ah, Yote and The Imperial Leader… Well, Rob is correct. We have a new Munzee type coming out. This Munzee is a Reseller Exclusive so you will only be able to purchase them from our Authorized Resellers. They will be released for sale on June 1 at 00:01 MHQ (CST). Matt and Rob alluded to it on this past Friday’s videocast, so without any further ado, we’re proud to introduce the Fire Mystery Munzee!

FireMystery
Let’s start with the basics:

Name: Fire Mystery Munzee

Points:
Deploy: 50
Capture/CapOn: Split of 60 by multiples of 5 with a minimum of 10 (eg, 10, 15, 35, 40, etc)  — Example: capture = 25, cap on = 35.

The Twist(s):
When captured, the Fire Mystery lights three (3) fires within 1 mile on greenies. These will burn for two hours or until capped.

FireMysterySpreadCapping these fires results in two possible outcomes:

  1. There is an 80% chance that the fire will extinguish. For putting out the fire, you will receive 50 points for capture, and the owner of the host greenie will earn 10 points.
  2. The other 20% is a little more dangerous. These fires can also burn you. If you get burned, you will LOSE 5 (-5) points. (The owner of the host greenie will still earn 10 points). It’s a choice of risk versus reward. As the saying goes, if you play with fire you might get burned.

Badges:
Upon release of the Fire Mystery, we will also have three badge lines: Capping the Fire Mystery Munzees, Deploying Fire Mystery Munzees, and “Getting Burned”.

This is where Yote comes in. While we don’t want to go into too much detail of his personal life, he is a frontline firefighter in California who specializes in wildfires. He has very graciously allowed us to use his Yote likeness in the badges. We would like to thank him for that, and even more importantly, everything he does.

Capping the Fire Mystery

  1. Capture 1 Fire Mystery Munzee
  2. Capture 100 Fire Mystery Munzees
  3. Capture 250 Fire Mystery Munzees


“Getting Burned”

  1. Get burned 1 time
  2. Get burned 25 times
  3. Get burned 100 times


Deploying the Fire Mystery

  1. Deploy 1 Fire Mystery Munzee
  2. Deploy 5 Fire Mystery Munzees


We also want to take this opportunity to provide help to our friends to the north. If you haven’t heard, Canada is experiencing terrible wildfires right now. Team Munzee is making a donation to the Canadian Red Cross on behalf of the Munzee Resellers to help those affected by these fires.

If you would like to donate as well, please visit www.redcross.ca. The Government of Canada is matching all individual donations, and they could use all the help they can get.

The Munzee app and website will be updated over the next day to reflect the introduction of the Fire Mystery.

We hope you enjoy the new Fire Mystery Munzee. Try not to get burned too often! 😉

Munzee on!

FREE

Everyone always wants something for free. Well this time we are totally giving it to you! That’s right, *FREE! Flat Robs @ Easter Events!

Matt left the office Friday for an event in Canada, and other team members are out at events this weekend. Rob was sad he missed the first Easter events that started on the 17th and had other plans with family for the weekend. He wants to make it to every event in the world, but it’s just not possible to travel that much. So we put our thinking caps on and decided to send the next best thing! FLAT ROB! He will be on the map for the duration of the Easter events, so he is able to celebrate with everyone worldwide. That’s right, all the way through April 10th at 23:59.

Flat Rob’s will be sold in the store from time to time between now and April 10th but will not be there permanently. Also, you may not have heard but you get 5 FR’s included with your Munzpak subscription this month.

 

*Easter Events themselves are not free. It’s a play on the first letter of each word. Flat Rob will be “set free” on the map.

Reseller Stickers Are Now Available!

Authorized resellers are a huge part of the Munzee community. They take an idea and expand it into items that Team Munzee would have never thought of. They also have their own dedicated communities that they serve proudly and diligently. Now we’re proud to serve them and you with a new Munzee: Reseller Unique Munzee Stickers. As you can imagine they are already being affectionately called RUMS by the reseller group.

Each reseller now has a unique Munzee sticker and icon with their logo/branding on them. On the map, they will all have the same generic reseller icon (seen here). When captured, you will not only receive this icon, but alsoResellerPin the icon for the specific reseller who distributed the sticker. For example, if you capture 5 of Reseller A’s stickers and 5 of Reseller B’s stickers, you will receive 10 generic reseller icons as well as 5 Reseller A icons and 5 Reseller B icons.

Each sticker is coded as generic for any player and the points for the RUMS are as follows:

  • Capture: 15
  • Deploy: 25
  • CapOn: 10

The RUMS will have associated capture and deploy badges coming soon. This is just a first step in something big to come, so keep an eye out for further announcements.

RUMS are now available from most resellers, find the list here and Munzee on!
