September QRewzdays Schedule

Last month’s Clan Wars required you to cap some QRewZEEs, which turned out to be an introduction to this special type for many of you. If you found it fun to visit lonely munzees in your local area, keep this schedule in mind for next month! As always, everything we do may be subject to change. Remember to follow your local guidelines and Stay Home if required.

It’s time to mark your calendars for September QRewzdays to earn some QRewzee points! We’ve got a nice sprinkling of them throughout the month, so there’s likely a day that works for you! It’s the two non-clan days as usual and then all the multiples of 3 so it’s easy to remember!

The September QRewzdays are as follows:

  • September 1 at 00:01 MHQ time through September 2nd at 23:59 MHQ time,
  • The following dates beginning at 00:01 MHQ time until 23:59 MHQ time on the same day: September 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30

Remember that QRew and ZeeQRew status can be earned or revoked at 00:01 MHQ time on the 1st and 15th, so plan accordingly if you want to achieve or retain either title!

Munzee on!

P.S. Are you looking for the Flat Friends schedule? Remember that in July, we announced that the Forever Flat schedule is now in effect! So there’s no schedule to memorize, Flat Friends will always be on the map!

Since there is NO Level X this month, there will be a total of 5 badges available in September. The first badge will appear as follows:

Novice Newbies: September 2020- Reached Level 1 in September 2020 Clan Wars

Overall Clan Notes:

ZeeOps Program Adjustment

Agents, for some time now we’ve been evaluating the current ZeeOps Program. Although it has been a moderate success, we feel that a change is in order to keep it fresh and relevant to both seasoned agents and newer recruits. While you’ve been hard at work completing our Monthly Operations, we’ve been working on updates to our infrastructure. It is for this reason that there will be no ZeeOps as you know it for the month of September.

As always, development time is unpredictable. You may see the NEW ZeeOps some time during the month, or it may be another month or more down the line. Some of the things written here may even change.

For now, here is what we are planning: ZeeOps will now be composed of optional Daily Missions instead of Monthly Operations. This new Mission style will be free to encourage continuous gameplay. We feel that this change is important as Clan Wars is already a monthly program, and the updates we made last year allow for a lot more flexibility — you can even play as a 1-member clan, which would offer very similar gameplay to the current ZeeOps program. We also feel this change will improve all our agents’ morale as it will be something to help keep the brain and body active each day, if the agent chooses to complete the Daily Missions.

Currently, the fate of ZeeCred is still being worked out, but do not worry about losing it. It is still being safely stored in our databases! We’ll most likely have some Secret Missions you can put your ZeeCred towards, similar to the missions that were part of our 2018 Advent Calendar. On top of that, we are also working on some brand-new ZeeOps themed game pieces we think you’ll love, so stay tuned!

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

This message will self destruct in 3… 2… 1…

August 2020 GOTM Winners + September POTM Requirements!

August saw the conclusion of the Camp Competition, with Camp FrEEZ emerging as the winner! However, all teams walked away with some useful prizes, including those of the Premium variety! New releases for the month include the Camp Critters, the Camp Munzee Greeting Card, and the Aphrodite Modern Myth, among others. Lastly, we also pushed out several updates, which included a NEW Tutorials area! We are now happy to announce the winners of the August Garden of the Month (GOTM), give a reminder for August Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for September POTM! The badges for August GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early September, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

August GOTM

This time last year, we released the She Said YES munzees to mark a very special occasion… so the first garden below caught our eye! Then we picked out another garden to match! 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 FLAT-O-FANT Garden, designed by volki2000, and the A Giraffe Visits Gadsden, AL Garden, designed by Dinklebergh, as our winning August GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

FLAT-O-FANT by volki2000 in Karlsruhe, Germany

Flat Matt’s notorious bad luck is the reason why he’s not included in this garden!

This cute cartoon-style elephant is constructed with lots of Flat Friend pins! We especially love the striking color combination of green Flat Robs and pink Flat Lous!

A Giraffe Visits Gadsden, AL by Dinklebergh in Gadsden, AL

Anyone think this giraffe resembles The Last Unicorn? Just me?

This rendering of a giraffe head is spot-on! Most of us just think of the yellow fur and brown spots, but the addition of the pink ears and blue eyes keeps the garden from looking too duochromatic.

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.

August POTM

August’s POTM called for nominations for players who have not been playing Munzee for long, but whose mastery of the game is increasing by leaps and bounds, or is otherwise a great addition to the community! There’s still time to send in your nominations — please fill out this Google Form for every user you’d like to nominate: https://forms.gle/o1SQfMHv93w2v8WL9 Separate nominations for each user makes it easier for us to award the badges!

Congratulations to all the nominees! You can expect to see the badge in early September. If you weren’t nominated this time, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for sharing your picks for Camp Munzee Campers! We loved reading about all the new players who’ve discovered the joys of our app, and have given new life to Munzee communities big and small all around the world!

September POTM Requirements

This month, we wanted to put the spotlight on scatters! Simply cap 100 scatters and you’ll have met the requirements to earn the badge! To clarify, scatters are the munzees that are generated after capturing a scattering munzee. For example, when you cap an Air Mystery, that triggers Feathers or Golden Feathers to appear on the map for you to capture. Feathers and Golden Feathers are scatters.

If you need help finding scattering munzees near you, remember that we have quite a few different types that scatter — here’s a list, with links to the corresponding Help Guide articles:

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 September has in store!

Munzee on!

Event Spotlight: Munzee Madness 9

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the Munzee Madness 9 events, which took place on March 6-7, 2020 at Anaheim, CA and was hosted by q22q17, crawil, and kj6soz.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

The Premier Munzee Event of the Year – Munzee Madness 9 and the longest running Munzee annual event in the world! Munzee Madness is an annual event that celebrates the very first global Munzee event. This is where events were born. Munzee events have evolved from a one time event to weekend extravaganzas, and Munzee Madness is no exception. We’ve hosted Munzee players from around the world who have traveled for the weekend.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

My most important tip, be flexible. Have back up plans for weather interruptions. Smile a lot, try to say hello to everyone. Have name tags with user names and real life first names.

What made your event unique?

Munzee Madness is unique as we have recently turned it into a road rally with multiple events over two days in different locations in Southern California. We have combined family friendly games along with Munzee hunts and have enjoyed several Eventzees as well.

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

2020 Dog Days of Summer on August 29th in Fullerton California.

Thank you to q22q17 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!

The second line of badges is based on each of the two Wandering Waffle specials. Make sure to cap at least one of each special so you can start your day off right!

Premium Prizes For Captivating Campers!

Starting with our Player of the Month requirements announced a few weeks ago, we wanted to make this month all about reaching out to and supporting all the new players that have discovered Munzee during these tough times.

Last week we posted about the new tutorials we’ve added to the Help & Info section of the app, which is just one of many steps we are taking to make the app more friendly to new players. Another step we’ve taken is testing out week-long Premium trials for new players when they sign up. So far, the results have been good, so it looks like the Premium trials are here to stay!

Since we’ve committed to giving all new players a week-long Premium trial, we wanted to extend the offer to others as well! Whether you’re a new player who joined before the trials started, or a veteran player who hasn’t chosen to take the next step, this is your chance to get a taste of the Premium life.

To players who were active during the period of July 1 to August 10:

  • If you are NOT currently a Premium Member, you will receive a week-long Premium trial starting today!*
  • If you are already a Premium Member (but not currently on a week-long trial), you will receive a Golden Carrot and a Howdy Greeting Card!**

For more about the benefits of a Premium Membership, check out the Help Guide article!

This should also give you a little time to attain QRew status, if you are working towards this month’s Clan War Requirements!

We hope you enjoy these extra rewards!

Munzee On!

*Please note that this Premium Membership trial only unlocks the features within the app. Upgrade to the full Premium Membership to unlock all the additional items!

**As always, it may take some time for the Golden Carrot and Howdy Card to reach those eligible, so please wait a day before contacting support@munzee.com if you don’t see yours at www.munzee.com/credits.

Camp Competition Results!

And the winner is…

Camp FrEEZ!

As they’ve been dominating the entire competition, this comes as no surprise… but we think the other camps made a valiant effort as well! The final point differences among Camp QRantine, Camp KenneZEE, and Camp Cap-A-Lot are so close, which is a testament to the effort ALL camps have put in!

Prizes

Now moving on to the part you’re probably most interested in — the prizes! Here’s what you will receive if you were active at any point during the competition and placed in a camp, based on how your team ranked:

  • Camp FrEEZ:
    • 1st Place Badge
    • Unique Greeting Card — more info on that below!
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths (see below) NOW through 23:59 MHQ on September 9th
  • Camp QRantine:
    • 2nd Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 30th
  • Camp KenneZEE:
    • 3rd Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 23rd
  • Camp Cap-A-Lot:
    • 4th Place Badge
    • Double points on winning Camp Myths NOW through 23:59 MHQ on August 16th

With Camp FrEEZ victorious that means that the winning “Camp Myths” are the Dragon family, along with a few flying friends to make the bonus extra special.

To clarify, everyone will receive double points starting NOW on the following bouncers:

Unique Greeting Card Details

Having more time for double points than the other camps is definitely a useful perk for players in the first place camp, but we also wanted to give something exclusive! It’s the FrEEZ Flag greeting card! This greeting card will be the same as all other “limited edition” cards in terms of points. Each Camp FrEEZ camper will receive THREE cards.

Don’t forget to edit the title and the notes of your card when you deploy 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!

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

Support

We’ll be awarding the final prizes starting today, but as there were so many active players, it may take a while before you receive your badge and greeting card if applicable. Double points, however, should be working for everyone!

If, after a few days, you still haven’t received your final prizes, please e-mail support@munzee.com.

Camp Merch

If you haven’t treated yourself recently, pick up a shiny new personal tag, T-shirt, mug, or tote from Camp Munzee Collection HERE! The latest tPOB, the Bear Cub, will be available until next week!
