You Are Cordially Invited to the 10th Annual Award ZEEson!

This year is our 10th birthday, and while we would have liked to pull out all the stops to celebrate, we still aren’t quite ready to host an in-person celebration. However, that doesn’t mean y’all can’t host your own safe, socially-distanced events! As this year is still an extra-special one for us, the theme we’ve decided on this year is Award ZEEson!

Event Package Overview

Get your events on the calendar (https://calendar.munzee.com/submit) and then choose from one of the following packages available in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Each has a unique host badge!

  • Gilded Guest – Basic event and no proximity restrictions – $30
  • Prized Presenter – The Gilded Guest plus 20 virtuals – $50
  • Notable Nominee – The Prized Presenter plus badge and icon (fully custom while time permits) – $150
  • Wonderful Winner – The Notable Nominee plus Eventzee (more info on that below!) and 50 EXCLUSIVE PaparaZEE Greeting Cards (similar to the March into May Event Greeting Cards) – $200

Birthday Box Garden Add-on – If you would like our themed Birthday Box Garden (similar to the March into May Events Tulip Gardens) to be deployed at your event location, this can be added onto any Birthday package. – $25

Emerald Prizes Add-on – If you would like your guests to receive a free Emerald garden pin, this can be added onto any Birthday package. – $25

This year’s 10-week birthday event period should hopefully align with an event you were already planning, or allow you the flexibility to schedule one if the idea just came to you! Birthday events can begin starting July 1st and run all the way to September 8th!

As always, there will be an Attendee Badge and plenty of extras! Get your events on the calendar, package requests in, and artwork suggestions in ASAP, especially if you’re hoping for merchandise, too. As our artists’ schedule starts to fill up, we will move to generic art options to avoid missing out on special event badges.

Return of Eventzee

As stated above, if you choose the Wonderful Winner Event Package, it will include an Eventzee Scavenger Hunt Party Pack! These new packs have all of the challenges created for you, so all you have to do is approve player submissions. Preserve your event for a lifetime with pictures and videos using the ALL NEW* Eventzee app!

Your Eventzee Add-On will include:

  • An Eventzee Party Pack with 20 challenges in a variety of different types.
  • Access to Social features for your hunt, including the photo stream and chat areas.
  • Players at your event will also be awarded an all NEW Eventzee badge for hosts and attendees posted to their Munzee accounts, as well as 500 Munzee points for each active player.

To set up your scavenger hunt the host will need to send their username and the email associated with their new Eventzee account to the Munzee Events Team. The host will then be made an admin of the Eventzee hunt and sent a code to the hunt beforehand along with the badge code.

*Please note that this package will require users to download the new Eventzee app and that these challenges will not count toward the previous Eventzee badges. Players will need to create a new Eventzee account if they have not already set one up in the new app.


Lastly, if you’re new to hosting, or if it’s been a while, you may want to check out our dedicated Help Guide section — we have articles that will walk you through every step of the way!

We’re looking forward to celebrating 10 years of this crazy game, and you, the players, who’ve kept it alive for so long!

Munzee on!

Roverhaul Part 3!

Roverhaul Part 1 gave Rover the ability to dig up Jewel Shards while accompanying you on Jewel-capping sessions. Roverhaul Part 2 gave Rover the ability to extend your capture radius with Rover Treats. What does Roverhaul Part 3 have in store? A combination of the two!

Another Trick in Rover’s Toolkit!

When you capture the last stage of a Physical Trail Munzee while a Rover is with you, you have a chance of finding a Rover Treat! In addition, the deployer of the trail will also receive a Rover Treat! After all, the deployer did go to the effort of deploying and maintaining their Trail, which is not an easy feat!

Please note that this is only for Physical Trails. The chance of finding Rover Treats may spread to other types in the future!

The popup that appears after you’ve captured the final stage of a Trail will let you know if Rover has found any, so make sure to keep an eye out! You will also find them on your credits list.

Of course, if you need more Rover Treats, you can pick them up in the In-App Store for 40 Zeds, or get a pack of 10 Rover Treats in the Freeze Tag Store for $3.

As we continue to refine and improve the Munzee app, expect more Rover-related news!

Munzee on!

Updates to Quick Deploy and MORE in the App!

UPDATE: There was a mix-up involving the build number and our first note in bold red text below — it’s been corrected now!

Earlier in the year, we updated the Munzee Website with some improvements to the Quick Deploy process, which received a lot of positive feedback! We knew the next step was to bring over similar improvements to the app, so here’s a rundown of what you’ll find in the latest OTA (over-the-air) update! The build will be #736 — try restarting your app to see if it downloads!

An Improved Quick Deploy Experience!

Now, when you hold down the green pin button, instead of a list of each undeployed munzee ordered from newest to oldest, they are now grouped by type, along with a confirmation pop up to avoid accidental deploys, as you can see below:

In addition, the screens above will only show munzees that have never been deployed. We thought this change would be more convenient for players as most previously deployed munzees will require you to be within a certain range of where they were originally deployed to redeploy them. If you do need to redeploy a munzee, you can still access it by navigating to your Profile –> [Inventory] –> [Undeployed Munzees].

You may recall that the old Quick Deploy process allowed you to view the map while you chose which munzee to deploy. While that is no longer the case, we did make another tweak that should be a good compromise: now, Quick Deploy will deploy where the map is centered on, rather than where you (and your blue dot) are located. As an example, here’s how you can quickly deploy a Greeting Card near a friend:

You can also use this to quickly drop munzees around upcoming event locations, if the area isn’t too crowded. Simply open the side menu, tap on [Munzee Events], and then tap on an Event Indicator pin to get to its details and view it on the map!

Please note that (1) Destinations like Skylands and Virtual Condos will still be deployed at the player’s current location, even if you use Quick Deploy — and (2) this change has only been made for the Quick Deploy process — all other Deploy processes in the app will still deploy at your current location.

Other Fixes/Improvements!

  • Dismissing the Send Rover pop up when given the option with the extended capture radius will no longer deselect the Munzee
  • Tapping on a badge from the Notifications list will scroll you down to the exact location of that badge in the Achievements area — this was how we had it working originally, but it seems to have broken at some point — we’ve fixed it and hopefully it stays that way! 🤞
  • Setting off blasts while moving quickly should blast the Munzees in the exact location you’re in when tapping on the “Fire!” button, thanks to caching improvements!

We hope you enjoy the changes we’ve made in this update! Remember that we will always maintain our Update Log HERE. Feel free to check it out whenever you like!

Munzee on!

Destination Renovation Part 2: Virtual Resorts!

Last year we took the first step in converting our Destination Munzees into a more flexible system with Motels and Destination Credits. It’s been tough to rework these more complex game pieces, but we are excited to announce that Destination Renovations are now LIVE for Virtual Resort Munzees!

This new feature will allow players to renovate Virtual Resorts and add additional rooms for even more capping fun. You’ll be able to renovate any Virtual Resort Munzee (whether you own it or not) on both the web and Munzee app. Find a breakdown of all the details below!

Virtual Resort Details

Virtual Resort Munzees are now on a star-based system like Motels. Each star ranking equals 5 rooms, so effective immediately all original Virtual Resort Munzees have been converted into 3-Star Virtual Resorts. The icon images on the map are currently updating, but if you do see a “blank” or original Virtual Resort icon please note that, that is indeed a 3-Star Virtual Resort.

Renovating Virtual Resorts will offer the following:

  • 3-Star Virtual Resort: 15 rooms (Standard Virtual Resort)
  • 4-Star Virtual Resort: 20 Rooms
  • 5-Star Virtual Resort: 25 Rooms

By renovating you could be a part of a 5-Star Virtual Resort that is worth a substantial amount of points! Every time you Renovate a Virtual Resort you’ll earn 50 points as well, so get your construction hat on!

The Destination Renovation is currently only available for Virtual Resort and Motel Munzees, but it’s safe to say construction on other Destination Munzee types is slated for some time in the future!

So how do you Renovate a Virtual Resort? The same way as Renovating a Motel! Check out our Help Guide article if you need a refresher!

As Virtual Resorts are complete Virtual Munzees, they have NOT been converted into Destination Credits. Players will need Destination Credits to renovate Virtual Resorts.

  • Renovating a Virtual Resort = 1 Destination Credit per 5 rooms.

Don’t forget to check if you already have Destination Credits in your inventory! As more physical Destination types are given the ability to renovate, these types may also get converted into Destination Credits. Otherwise, you can purchase Destination Credits in the Freeze Tag Online Store and the In-App Store (click HERE if you’re on your Munzee-playing device), so be sure to stock up in case you come across any Virtual Resorts or Motels with no vacancy!

We hope you’re raring to use more Destination Credits with this new option! We’re always looking for ways to refresh the map and add value to game pieces you may already own!

Munzee on!

Can You Reunite the Lost Socks With Their Other Halves?

Did you know that May 24th is National Scavenger Hunt Day? As it’s the perfect holiday to highlight Munzee, we’ve decided to celebrate it the ENTIRE MONTH! We have a few surprises in the works, but as it IS a new month, the first order of business was to create some new themed specials! We took inspiration from a holiday that’s coming up even sooner — National Lost Sock Memorial Day on May 9th! Starting at 12:00 MHQ today, Lost Socks will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on May 31st.

Classic scavenger hunts often require you to find socks of a particular (and usually uncommon) color (i.e. red), so we thought turning them into specials to chase would be a fun twist! A total of 1,520 Lost Sock specials will be unleashed! That breaks down into 95 of each of the 16 socks. They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

You can find these forlorn foot coverings at the following:

Points

  • Capture: 150 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

Lost Socks will be attracted to Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

There will be eight badges to earn for these specials. All you need to do is capture each of the Lost Socks shown above! By doing so, you will have completed each pair of socks! You can see the first badge below:

Lozenge Legs- Capture the Left and Right Argyle Sock specials to complete the pair.

It’s up to you to find the socks for the remaining 7 badges! Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

Gaming Munzees Available in the In-App Store!

We want to make sure you’re able to get some use out of your Zeds, so we’re constantly reviewing what’s available in the In-App Store. After some discussion, we decided it was time to add select Gaming Types!

Here’s a list of what you can now find in the In-App Store — if you’re on your Munzee-playing device, you can tap HERE to visit it:

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!

April Garden Gnome Reminder + May Preview!

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

April Garden Gnome Reminders

If you haven’t picked up a Garden Gnome yet, they are available in the Freeze Tag Store for $9.

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 made 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!

We also released special Reseller Garden Gnomes in March — if you’re interested, you can check out our blog post on them HERE!

May Garden Gnome Details

What Gnome Skin can you look forward to receiving in May? The agile Soccer Garden Gnome! Like the other gnomes, the Soccer 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 (April’s) capture streak. Once the skin is awarded in May, 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 cleat-clad competitors rushing to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, the Soccer Garden Gnome will scatter up to 3 NEW Gnome Header Hats nearby when it is captured!

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

We hope you don’t slip on wet grass while earning May’s Gnome Skin! Don’t forget to keep your streak up through May — you’ll need to in order to earn the June Gnome Skin!

Munzee on!

April 2021 GOTM Winners

We kicked off the month with an explosion of April Fools’ Day pranks: fake filters, a fake Runzee splash screen, fake products in the Freeze Tag Store and the In-App Store, and a few other tricks you may or may not have noticed… We also had a few real items to enjoy, which were the Jack In ZEE Box tPOB and the Bag of Tricks and Sack of Surprises MOBs.

Other important happenings include the change in Egyptian Zodiac artifacts, the release of QRates and Cubimals, Roverhaul Part 2, and two rounds of new Greeting Cards (here and here).

We are now happy to announce the winners of the April Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early May, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

April GOTM

We certainly had fun planning all the pranks for April Fools’ Day, so we chose the first garden shown below as it fit the theme perfectly! The second garden was chosen for its gorgeous use of color and timely subject matter. 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 North Carolina Jester Hat Garden, designed by markcase, and the Kameleontti Garden, designed by RePe, tcguru, and kilpertti as our winning April GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

North Carolina Jester Hat by markcase in Burlington, NC

It also reminds us of our Harlequin Clown MOB that was bouncing around on our 7th Birthday!

This garden reminded us of all the April Fools’ Day shenanigans we had going on this year! Doesn’t it look like Jack In ZEE Box‘s hat?

Kameleontti by RePe, tcguru, and kilpertti in Raisio, Finland

Did this chameleon land on top of a box of Fruit Loops or something? Whatever the case, the color combinations are lovely and show off the range of Virtual Colors well!

We had pets on the brain this month with our Cubimals release and the latest Roverhaul update, and out of the animal-themed gardens yet to receive an award, this colourful chameleon took the cake!

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.

Based on your feedback, we’ve created a Google Form where you can submit GOTM nominations — here’s the link: https://forms.gle/SjUQeRxdi5FT81pCA

We’ll still check the iloveyou@munzee.com inbox for stragglers, but please try to send your submissions to this new Google Form instead. 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!
