March Into May Events Bring a NEW Greeting Card and Garden Option

It’s just about that time — the busyness of the new year has mostly settled down, and we’re back to our routines. But don’t forget to plan things to look forward to! If you’re missing your local Munzee QRew, maybe a small, safe event is just the thing to add some cheer to your days.

We’re excited to announce March Into May event options are now available for events held throughout March, April, and May! Read on below to learn more about how we’re marching to a new tune this season!

March Into May Attendee Badge!

All events that take place from now until 31st May will receive a special March Into May badge for attendees.There will be no special event packages during this time however you are still able to add a custom icon and badge to your event. Louise is ready to work with hosts to customize their events so please get your events on the calendar and set up your basic event package!

Exclusive Greeting Card!

Any event that purchases a badge and icon that is being held during the months of March, April, and May will receive 50 free EXCLUSIVE March Into May Event Greeting Cards for the event account to deploy.

These Limited Edition cards are only available for events, so make sure you get your event on the calendar. For more information reach out to Munzee Event Manager Louise!

Tulip Virtual Gardens!

Event hosts will also have the option of adding a lovely Tulip Garden to their event location! The floral virtual garden is made up of  3 Air Mysteries, 3 Chicks, 23 Yellow Virtuals, 3 Electric Mysteries, 2 Peas, 14 Green Virtuals, and 1 NVG, deployed by our event account and on the map until 1st June for everyone to capture. This add-on will be $25 and available after you submit an event and begin communicating with Louise. These gardens are only available for events from now until 31st May.

We know the world is in a different state than the past and want to be sensitive to this. That is the reason we’re making these gardens available for the entire 3-month period. Socially-distanced and responsible events are taking place within local guidelines worldwide and we want to celebrate with you. Stay safe and stay aware!

Munzee on!

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!

March MunzPak Includes NEW Bee Evolution!

We think this month’s MunzPak is the bee’s knees! There are exclusive goodies in all the MunzPaks this month: Physical and Hybrid MunzPaks contain the new Bee Evolutions, and Virtual and Hybrid MunzPaks contain The next Egyptian Zodiac, Osiris! You can find a breakdown of each Pak below!

MunzPak is a monthly subscription service that delivers munzees directly to your door! Each of our three MunzPak options contain a variety of munzees, including some new items that you won’t be able to find anywhere else! The three different types of MunzPaks that you can subscribe to each month are as follows:

  • Physical MunzPak features blocks of generic stickers and pre-coded stickers including brand new munzees which can only be purchased through the subscription service. $~25 value for $15 each month.
  • Virtual MunzPak features a variety of virtual munzees that are automatically added to your account each month such as Destination Munzees, Jewels, and more. $~40 value for $25 each month.
  • Hybrid MunzPak is the best of both worlds! Get both physical and virtual munzees such as Places Munzees, Magnets, and more. $~30 value for $20.01 each month.

Never subscribed to MunzPak before? If this is your first month subscribing, you’ll have the chance to earn one-time badges for each type of Pak! All you have to do is stop by the Freeze Tag Online Store and subscribe today!

The March MunzPaks will contain the items listed below, effective as of 00:01 MHQ time on March 1. Please note that any purchases made before then will be for the February MunzPak, which contains different items.

March Physical MunzPak

Purchase HERE!  Remember the stickers in this pak can be shared with others!

  • 25 Generic Stickers
  • 3 Bees (more info on this below!)
  • 1 Butterfly
  • 1 Rose
  • 3 Seasonals
  • 2 Water Mysteries

March Virtual MunzPak

Purchase HERE!

  • 5 Osiris Egyptian Zodiacs
  • 1 Flat DHS

March Hybrid MunzPak

Credits

  • 1 Seasonal

  • 25 Jewel Shards

Virtuals

  • 3 Osiris Egyptian Zodiacs
  • 1 Carnation

Bee Evolution Munzees

Stages 1-4 of the Bee Evos are Physical Munzees, which are as follows:

Once these Evolutions reach Stage 4, a temporary POB will be launched, which is Stage 5. For example, if you’ve deployed a Bee Evolution, the Empty Honeycomb will remain in place, while the adult Bee variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.”

Stage 5 Bees will bounce to both physical and virtual landing pads every 8 hours. They have the option of emerging as one of the three different species shown below, with the WallaBee being the rarest of the 3.

Like the Flower Evolutions, the chance of the Bee Evolution evolving to one of the 3 types changes every time it is reset with the Evolution Reset Credit. Although you cannot capture a reset evolution if you have already captured the original from stages 1-4, you CAN capture the final level of a reset when it evolves and releases a new tPOB. An easy way to know is, if you see it on the map you can capture it!

The stage timeline of the Bee Evolutions will match that of a real Worker Bee. The stages will be as follows:

  • Stage 1 to Stage 2: after 3 days
  • Stage 2 to Stage 3: after 6 days
  • Stage 3 to Stage 4: after 12 days
  • Stage 4 to Stage 5: permanent until reset to stage one
  • Stage 5: will exist for 36 days or 7 captures, whichever happens first, at which time the temporary Bee POB will be archived.

Please note that although the first four stages for each are the same, they will count as different special capture icons. Like all Player Owned Bouncers (POBs), the Bee Evolutions will be available for multi-capture only at Level 5.

The points for the Bee Evolutions will be as same as the Butterfly Evolution, with 100 points awarded per Stage 1 deploy.

  • Stage 1: Cap: 50, CapOn: 30
  • Stage 2: Cap: 40, CapOn: 20
  • Stage 3: Cap: 45, CapOn: 25
  • Stage 4: Cap: 40, CapOn: 30
  • Stage 5: Cap: 150, CapOn: 50, Host CapOn: 50

Just like real life bees, the Bee Evolution Munzees will be attracted to the following landing pads:

The Bee Evolutions will adhere to normal proximity rules. Stage 1 deploys must be at least 50 feet from any other physical type and 150 feet from your own physical munzees.

Stage 5 of the Bee Evos will NOT be attracted to magnets and are NOT blastable. To access the Bee Evolution Munzees, turn on your “Evolution” and “All Expiring Specials” filters. The Bee Evolutions will count toward Evolution Capture and Deploy badges.

Munzee on!

February Garden Gnome Reminder + March Preview!

As the month comes to a close, we wanted to make sure you were heading into March with your desired Garden Gnomes! The skin for completing your February capture streak (and the corresponding badge) will be awarded in early March, but we couldn’t wait to share what’s in store!

February Garden Gnome Reminders

If you haven’t picked up a Garden Gnome yet, they are available in the Freeze Tag Store for $11.

Each month, the price of a Garden Gnome will decrease by $1. However, players can only purchase 1 Garden Gnome every 28 days.

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

March Garden Gnome Details

What Gnome Skin can you look forward to receiving in March? The cool and coordinated Basketball Garden Gnome! Like the other gnomes, the Basketball Garden Gnome is a temporary POB that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31.

As stated earlier, to earn this skin, you’ll need to have completed this month’s (February’s) capture streak. Once the skin is awarded in March, you can change the skin on the gnome to this one at any point — refer to our original blog post for the instructions!

Points

  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 300

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

Additionally, the Basketball Garden Gnome will scatter up to 3 NEW Gnome Noggin Nets nearby when it is captured!

Like the other Gnome Hats, the Gnome Noggin Nets 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

The Basketball Garden Gnome will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Basketball Garden Gnomes on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Basketball Garden Gnome visits you. Basketball Garden Gnomes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Basketball 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!
  • 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!

While we revealed images for the first of each badge line in the original post, we are happy to show you the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Basketball Garden Gnome:

 

We hope took a shot at earning March’s Gnome Skin! Don’t forget to keep your streak up through March — you’ll need to in order to earn the April Gnome Skin!

Munzee on!

Flat Objects: The Future of Flat Types!

Don’t get us wrong — we love all 4 of our Flat Friends! But not all of our staff members are comfortable with being flattened. To allow for expansion of the Flat type, we’ve come up with Flat Objects! Think of them as the Munzee version of totems (à la Inception) where the Flat Object is something seemingly ordinary but is near and dear to each staff members’ hearts.

The first Flat Object is brought to you by Dylan, our indispensable Creative Director! If you’ve been a Munzee player for a while now, you’ve most likely met him, or at least heard of him… but for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to get to know the man, or would like a refresher, you can check out his most recent Meet Munzee Munzday post HERE!

Dylan’s Flat Object is a throwback to simpler times, and tube TV tech! Say hello to the Flat DHS, stylized after VHS Tapes from the 80s and 90s. Dylan has a nose for nostalgia, so these tapes (and the badges associated with them) will give you an insight to some of his favorite flicks. Read on to learn more!

Flat DHS Details

The Flat DHS joins the Flats as a virtual type. It is currently available in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, blastable

Proximity: 50 feet from other players’ Flats, 150 feet from your own.

Deploy: 19 points

Capture: Split 94 points with a minimum of 19 Points

CapOn: Split 94 points with a minimum of 19 Points

To access the Flat DHS munzee, turn on your “Virtual – Flats” filter or “All Flat Types” filter. For more information on Flats, you can check out our Help Guide article.

Badges

There are badge lines for deploying and capturing the Flat DHS, which, as mentioned above, feature some Munzee-fied versions of Dylan’s favorite movies. You can see the first of each below!

We hope you enjoy collecting Flat DHS tapes and learning a bit more about Dylan in the process!

Munzee on!

We’re Celebrating Women’s History Month Early!

Sometimes it can be helpful to look to others for inspiration and strength. We couldn’t think of better examples than these female luminaries, who overcame such difficult circumstances to become pioneers in their respective fields!

In celebration of Women’s History Month, starting at 12:00 MHQ today, Women’s History specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on March 14th.

A total of 1,200 Women’s History specials will be available to cap! They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. Each great lady favors the following landing pads:

  • Amelia Earhart
  • Frida Kahlo
    • Greenies
    • All Stages of Physical Flower Evolutions
      • Rose
      • Tulip
      • Lily
  • Hedy Lamarr
    • Greenies
    • Physical Jewels
      • Diamond
      • Ruby
      • Aquamarine
      • Topaz
      • Pink Diamond
  • Maya Angelou
  • Jane Goodall
  • Margaret Hamilton

They will be worth 150 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! They will be attracted to Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

When you capture a Women’s History special, up to three items will scatter nearby, like Feathers. These munzees will stay on the map for 2 hours or when captured, and are worth 50 points for the Capture.

Badges

As long as you cap each of the Women’s History specials, you’ll earn their respective badges.

We hope you enjoy meeting these accomplished women of history! Don’t forget to ask for an autograph!

Munzee on!

February 2021 GOTM Winners

This month our Valentines Card Collectors Club took center stage! We hope you enjoyed seeing each day’s featured Greeting Card, capping our Assorted Chocolates and Mythical Bandaidz, making the most of all the double point days, and receiving a few extra goodies to deploy as well! On top of that, we also celebrated our good fortune in getting 6 more weeks of Fr057y, welcomed the adorable Hamilton Hamzee, and introduced a new type of credit — Jewel Shards! We are now happy to announce the winners of the February Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early March, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

February GOTM

Since we’ve got Valentines on the mind all month long, we just couldn’t resist the LOVE-ly appeal of these winners! 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 Secret Valentine Garden, designed by Jeffeth, and the Folk CrossBow Garden, designed by Neloras, as our winning February GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Secret Valentine by Jeffeth in Ontario, Canada

A perfect secret message, as this garden will disappear from the map once you cap everything! (But isn’t that true for ALL gardens? Shhhhh)

Is it wrong to pick another ZeeOps-themed garden this month? We think not, especially if it complements our latest Secret ZeeOp, Operation: ZEEcret Admirer!

Folk CrossBow by Neloras in Bratislava, Slovakia

It might be hard to see against the grayish background of our web map, but the darker Joysticks guide your eye along the bowstrings!

We’ve received a few Crossbow-themed garden submissions in the past, but this one stood out due to its more complex design and increased variety of munzee types. Also, we felt it was fitting for February as it is our Special Delivery Cupid’s weapon of choice!

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.

Munzee on!

P.S. Are you looking for POTM requirements? Remember that last year, we announced that we were holding off on POTM for now as we develop a new way to highlight our unique player base!

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.

Jewel Shards are a Smash Hit!

We’re finally ready to give our veteran players a requested feature with a fun twist. Welcome Jewel Shards! Similar to our Hotel renovations with Destination Credits, we wanted to create a more flexible system for Jewels. This is especially true after the warm reception to the Funfinity Stone Pouch Creatures last year.

This new system is designed for experienced players who may have an overstock of specific Jewel Credits. You’ll be able to choose if you want to redeem some of your Jewel Credits for Jewel Shards. If you do, you’ll be able to use those Jewel Shards to create new Jewels of your choosing. For example, you may have tons of Aquamarines stored up from past Clan War rewards and have no plans on using them. Now you have the option of breaking some of those Aquas into Jewel Shards and using them to get a Citrine or a Ruby. The choice will be yours within the options given.

Don’t worry if you have any Jewel Credits saved up — those will remain, and all Jewels can still be purchased in the Freeze Tag online store. Of course, not all Jewels are created equal, so different amounts of Jewel Shards are required to convert to each Jewel type.

You’ll find all the details and conversion rates at munzee.com/redeem.

While Jewel Shards are currently only available as trading elements online, who knows what the future holds? Perhaps a certain bot buddy will help find more, or maybe you’ll earn them in Clan Wars or ZeeOps? Only time will tell!

Munzee on!


FAQ:

Q: I’m a new player with no Jewel Shards and no Jewel credits to exchange. What do I do?
A: Be patient. This is being introduced as a tool for those who have accumulated many credits in order to give them a way to choose what type of Munzee they become and deploy.

Q: Why are the number of Jewel Shards given for a Jewel not the same as the number of Jewel Shards required to get a Jewel?
A: The vast majority of these Jewels were earned as rewards from Clan Wars, Prize Wheels, ZeeOps, and other gameplay activities. The value doesn’t change, but the option to upgrade into a different Jewel is accounted for.

Q: Why can’t I break a virtual Amethyst (or other virtual Jewels) into Jewel Shards?
A: Virtual Jewels are complete munzees in your undeployed list, so it isn’t the same process as exchanging a Jewel Credit for a Jewel Shards credit.

Q: What about Clan Weapons?
A: What about them? 😉 Stay tuned for possible expansions into other areas of the game!

Q: Can I trade my credits to another player or give Jewel Shards to another player?
A: Nope.

NEW Capture Mulligan and Credits Section in the In-App Store!

Our Capture, Deploy, and Super Streak badge lines are popular choices for many players looking to set a goal. It can be challenging to squeeze in daily play during a busy month, but with some careful planning, many of our players have managed to do it (at the time of writing, over 4,000 have earned the Super Streak badge). However, the second badge in each line ratchets up the difficulty, requiring an unbroken year of capture and/or deploy activity — undoubtedly a difficult feat!

Even the most dedicated player, with alarms and reminders set each day, can have an unforeseen circumstance come up. It takes just one unlucky day to break a streak. The past year has brought unlucky days for many, so we thought it was the right time to release the Capture Mulligans!

NEW Capture Mulligans

 

They will award 1 capture worth 50 points as follows:

  • 1 Day – Allows players to add a capture marked with yesterday’s date
  • 7 Day – Allows players to add a capture to the last day missed within the last 7 days (for example, as today is Feb 10th — if you missed capping something on both Feb 7th and Feb 8th, it will only add a capture with a Feb 8th date)
  • 14 Day – Allows players to add a capture to the last day missed within the last 14 days

As these items are meant for those one-off unlucky days, they are limited to 1 each per player every 30 days.

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

Other Credits Available in the App

Along with the Capture Mulligans above, we’ve brought the following credits to the In-App Store for your convenience!

We hope this makes breaking your capture streak a little less devastating!

Munzee on!
