An unprecedented turn of events last month has many of us cooped up indoors, going out for supplies only when absolutely necessary. If you’re running low on munzees and have the budget for it, why not treat yourself to an April MunzPak? This month follows the Fall into Spring theme well with a lovely assortment of springtime-themed munzees and a bountiful harvest of Evolution munzees. You’ll also get your hands on the newly updated Earth Mystery Munzee, and the newly released Electric Mystery Munzee depending on the Pak you purchase. You can find a break down 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 sometimes 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.

Keep Up with Munzee News AND Specials Inside the App!

We love how active our player community is, especially on social media, which definitely helps to grow the game! This blog, our social media accounts, and in-app messages, are just some of the many ways we communicate updates to our players.

We’re now making it easier than ever to keep up with all of the latest Munzee news right in the app. With this latest update, we hope to bridge the gap between this living app and you!

NEW What’s New? Section

This new section of the app can be found by tapping the Hamburger Menu icon at the top left corner of most of the app’s screens, then by tapping on [What’s New?] between the [Store] and [Notifications] buttons.

What's New

Similar to the Filters section, there are 3 tabs at the top that allow you to switch between the following subsections:

  • News – shows the most recent blog posts in button form, with the newest at the top of the list. Tapping on any of the buttons will open that blog post in your device’s default browser.
  • Featured – shows all active Munzee Owned Bouncers (MOBs) AND temporary Player Owned Bouncers (tPOBs) in button form, with the soonest to leave the map at the top of the list. Tapping on any of the buttons will open a window in your device’s default browser showing all the relevant blog posts.
  • Schedule – shows all active scheduled munzees (Flat Friends, QRewzees, and RetireMyths) in button form, with the soonest to leave the map at the top of the list. Tapping on any of the buttons will open the current schedule for that munzee in your device’s default browser.

When there’s new information released you’ll also see a red icon next to “What’s New?” to let you know there’s been some breaking news! We’re still putting out in-app messages, emails, social posts and more, but this section is meant so players can easily access a collective area for all their Munzee news.

Button Migration

To make room for the [What’s New?] button, we moved the old [Offline Mode] button into the [Tools] section, and renamed it [Offline Queue].

We hope you find this NEW app section useful, whether you’re at home reading the latest blog post or out in the wild hunting the current active MOBs!

Munzee on!

This New Munzee Type is No Joke!

As we enter into our third week of self-quarantine / working from home we at MHQ have been racking our brains to think of more ways to make the game accessible for those who can’t be out and about. From our past surveys, we know that Prize Wheels are quite popular amongst our players, so we decided to introduce a new virtual munzee type inspired by them!

Say hello to the snazziest gameshow host around- Sir Prize Wheel! 

We are happy to announce the Sir Prize Wheel Munzee is now available for purchase! In case the name wasn’t obvious enough this new virtual type works like a combination of Surprise and Prize Wheel Munzees. You can pick up 20 Sir Prize Wheel Munzees every 10 days from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE.

Sir Prize Wheel Munzee Details

The Sir Prize Wheel joins the Gaming Munzees as a virtual type. Once the Sir Prize Wheel is captured, he will award you points and a prize either by adding items to your inventory (like Zeds!) OR scattering a special munzee type nearby, similar to how the current Air Mysteries work. Make sure to read the popup that appears after capturing this munzee carefully so you know what you got! The owner of the munzee also has a chance to receive prizes as part of the CapOn!

Capture Radius: 300 feet, not blastable

Updated addition: Proximity: 300 feet to any other SPW, 150 feet any other type of your own, 50 feet to any other munzee from different owner.

Deploy: 200 points

Capture: 100 points + Random prize

CapOn: 50 points + Random CapOn prize possible

To access the Sir Prize Wheel munzee, turn on your “Virtual – Gaming” filter. To access any scatters, turn on your “All Expiring Specials” filter. For more information on the Sir Prize Wheel Munzee, you can check out our Help Guide article.

As part of this launch we are also adding the Surprise Munzee to the Gaming category, so that is TWO new virtual gaming types! Due to these new types we’ve updated the clan requirements in the app and on the previous blog. The Surprise Munzee also has a new, lower price and you can purchase those HERE! You can also shop the entire Gaming Munzee collection HERE!

Badges

In honor of April Fools Day we will also be releasing a new line of badges in the next week or so! Stay tuned for more information, we promise it’s no joke!

Munzee on!

MHQ Has No Shortage of Toilet Paper!

Last month, Flat Matt’s luck was put to the test and he seemed to come out unscathed, thanks to all of the unlucky 13’s you captured! But why is Flat Matt always getting the attention? This month, we think it’s time to show Flat Lou some love! Starting at 11:11 MHQ on March 31st, Lou Roll specials will begin bouncing around the map until 23:11 MHQ on April 13th.

Lou Roll Details

Before you think we’re unfairly poking fun at Louise, just know this was her idea! Flat Lou has been sponsored by a toilet paper company for her upcoming race. It may not be the most extravagant of sponsors, but she does get all the two-ply she wants!

401 of these specials will bounce to all Flat Lous and Virtual Colors every 4 hours or when captured. Each roll will be worth 140 points for Capture and 41 points for CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out!

These plush MOBs will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtual Colors! However, they will not be blastable. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

Additionally, there will be four badges to earn based on the number of Lou Roll specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 4 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Rare Roll-Capture 1 Lou Roll Special

Both Lou Rolls and loo rolls are in rare supply these days! We don’t suggest hoarding, but you might want to have a couple extra rolls around in case of a rainy day. Are there slang terms for “toilet paper” where you’re from? Please share in the comments of our social posts!

We hope these specials help to lighten your load, wherever you are!

Munzee on!

April Flat Friends and QRewzdays Schedules!

The future is uncertain, but the schedules we have planned for April are a sure thing! These schedules are easy to remember! We hope you’ll enjoy capping these virtual and physical munzees while practicing careful Social DistanZEEing this month! Remember to follow your local guidelines and Stay Home if required.

April Flat Schedule

As we mentioned in March’s schedule, the Flat Friends want to visit as many Fall into Spring events as possible! So instead of being on the map through April 19th, they will now be on the map the entire month! We know many events are delayed further into the future so we’ll continue to monitor each month! Shown in list format, April 2020’s Flat Friends schedules look like:

Flat Matt

  • Wednesday, April 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Thursday, April 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

Flat Rob

  • Wednesday, April 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Thursday, April 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

Flat Lou

  • Wednesday, April 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Thursday, April 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

Flat Hammock

  • Wednesday, April 1st at 00:01 MHQ time through Thursday, April 30th at 23:59 MHQ time

April QRewsday Schedule

In addition to our Flat Friends schedule, you can mark your calendars for April QRewsdays to earn some QRewzee points! We are living in odd times so we thought it might be nice to have QRewzees on the map a bit more often, but not EVERY day. So we’ve chosen the odd numbered days in the month of April.

The April QRewsdays begin at 00:01 MHQ time through 23:59 MHQ time on the same day and are as follows:  April 1, 2 (always have this non-clan day) 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23,25, 27, 29

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!

March 2020 GOTM Winners + April POTM Requirements!

March has been a totally QRaZEE month. It started out well — we released some new packs in the store to help out with Clan Wars requirements, and released the Destination Renovation update after getting some feedback from players at Munzee Madness 9. Then, the COVID-19 situation escalated, and we scrambled to alter our plans so that they could be more accessible to players in a variety of living conditions. Some quick thinking by our staff members yielded the ongoing Social DistanZEEing event, which includes the popular Eventzee Couch Potato Party!

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

March GOTM

This month, we chose gardens that represent our current state of affairs. 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 Patchwork quilt NL, designed by sverlaan, and Scared Kitty Garden, designed by Ovaldas and BituX, as our winning March GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Patchwork quilt NL by sverlaan in Woudenberg, Netherlands

Look at the variety of munzee types featured in this garden! This is definitely a must-visit if you’re in the area!

This MASSIVE garden has been on our list for a while — we’ve just been waiting for the right time to recognize it! The pattern certainly does remind us of a cozy, comfortable quilt, maybe one we’ve been snuggling under during these days we’ve been stuck at home!

Scared Kitty Garden by Ovaldas and BituX in Vilnius, Lithuania

This cute, simple kitty garden is facing a larger cat garden that seems to be in progress — will there be more additions to its family?

This garden reminded us of a certain viral video showing a cat that is obviously displeased with its owners being home during this time of self quarantine. Don’t forget that our animal friends need to adjust to this new situation as well!

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.

March POTM

March POTM’s requirements asked players to help clean up the map by capping or deploying 200 greenies OR capping 100 QRewzees. While some players were able to earn this badge right at the start of March, others may have had a more difficult time, especially in the second half of the month.

Congratulations to all the players who were able to meet the requirements! You can expect to see the badge in early April. If you were not able to meet the requirements, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for cleaning up the map and growing the game! While we may not be able to enjoy your efforts immediately, we certainly will once these tough times pass!

April POTM Requirements

For April’s POTM we wanted to increase participation with our Global QRantine event. If you cap all of the munzees deployed by the event account within April, you’ll receive the POTM badge! The event begins April 2nd!

Click [I’m Going] on the calendar page HERE!

Cap all the deploys of the event account HERE!

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:

If you were keeping up with the Social DistanZEEing event account’s deploys, you may remember some munzees only being available for a limited time. There may be similar munzees deployed in April, so be on your toes!

Munzee on!

April 2020’s Resolution Can Be Done From The Comfort of Your Home!

It’s almost April, and while many of us are confined to our homes, that doesn’t mean our fitness has to suffer! As we announced in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of being active. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to practicing a different exercise. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. This month’s badge may be tricky to get, but we believe in you!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. For April we thought that popular aerobic exercises would be a good way to maintain fitness, indoors or out! Time to rock those colorful sweatbands, arm warmers, leg warmers, and leotards!

Why are aerobic exercises important?

Aerobic exercises get your blood pumping! Good circulation is important as it means nutrients from the food you eat, the beverages you drink, and the air you breathe are more quickly delivered to your entire body, especially the extremities.

Healthline points out that, compared to exercises such as those featured in last month’s Resolution, “You perform aerobic exercises for a sustained period of time,” and additionally, “The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes or more of aerobic exercise five or more days each week. That can be broken up, though. For example, you can take three, 10-minute walks throughout the day.” The article goes on to recommend 10 aerobic exercises you can try, but here’s our own (edited and slightly Munzee-fied) version of that list:

  1. Jumping to reach those QR codes that tall players stuck on signs
  2. Circuit of:
    1. Sasquatch Yeti Squats
    2. Leprechaun Lunges
    3. Pegasus Pushups
    4. Dragon Dips
    5. Tuli Twist
  3. Running or jogging to the nearest bouncer
  4. Walking the loop of Greenies and Elementals around your house
  5. Swimming with Mermaids and Sirens
  6. Biking and blasting
  7. Picking up each piece of litter you see one by one and tossing it into a trash can (bonus points if you had to chase after several tiny square sticker backings that got blown away by the wind)
  8. Kickboxing other Munzee players so that you can be FTC
  9. ZEEumba
  10. Cutting sheet after sheet of Munzee stickers into individual pieces

Are you ready to break a sweat between scanning QR codes? Before you attempt any exercise, it’s always a good idea to consult your doctor**. Good luck and Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead! 

** MUNZEE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY EXERCISE-RELATED INJURIES

International Colour Day

According to the International School of Colour + Design, March 21st is International Colour Day because “around the equinox (aequi-equi+nox-night) the sun shines directly on the equator, and consequently, day and night have an approximate length all over the Earth.” As you know, how we perceive color is greatly affected by light sources — so if day and night are more similar for everyone around the world, the colors will appear more similarly to everyone as well!

To celebrate, we’ve got 2 new colorful things you might be interested in: a NEW badge and NEW generics available in the Freeze Tag Store!

NEW Badge

You can earn the [QR]ayon Box badge as of 10:00 MHQ today by capturing at least one of EVERY Virtual Munzee Color! Now before you start calling us out, we know Virtuals aren’t related to QR codes, but we couldn’t pass up the play on words!

  • Virtual Brown

This badge will be retroactively awarded as well, so if you’ve already met the requirements, please be patient! You should receive it soon.

NEW Generics

For players who enjoy the physical game, we have new colored strips of generics for sale in the Freeze Tag Store HERE!

The strips come with a sticker in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Violet. Each order will include two strips of 6 generics (12 stickers total) for $1.00. The codes are generic so the stickers can be shared with any player.

For now there is only a limited quantity available, so if you’ve gotten attached to them, snap them up ASAP! Depending on how popular these end up being we may restock them in the future!

We hope you enjoy these additional rainbows of color!

Munzee On!

Reset Evolution Munzees Inside the App!

We had a lot of information for you yesterday on all the changes for Elemental Munzees, so to make sure this update didn’t fly under the radar, we’ve decided to feature it in its very own blog post. As of the updates made yesterday, you can now reset Evolution Munzees inside the app!

How to Reset an Evolution Munzee

Previously, this functionality was only available on the Munzee website. If you need a refresher on that, you can check out the instructions in the Help Guide.

Anyone can reset any Evolution Munzee in the app, whether you own the munzee or not:

  • Navigate to the Munzee Details of the Evolution Munzee you would like to reset
  • Tap on the purple [Reset Evolution] button at the bottom of the screen
  • Confirm that you would like to use an Evolution Reset Credit in the following popup
  • That’s it!

Reset Evolution Munzee

 

Benefits of Resetting Evolution Munzees

As illustrated in our screenshots above, the main benefit of resetting an Evolution Munzee is that you will be able to capture stages of that munzee that you haven’t captured yet!

While that often means earlier stages for most players, the opposite can also apply: if the Evolution Munzee has variants at the final stage, such as the Flower Evolutions, resetting it will re-roll the dice! This means you could potentially cap all 5 of the Carnation Blossoms below from the same munzee!

Sound Familiar?

If you’ve been keeping up with our recent updates, you may notice we’ve done quite a few relating to this specific area of the app:

We are always trying to find ways to balance the advanced gameplay available on our website with the convenience — and unfortunately, smaller screen size — of our app. We hope this change accomplishes that, and that you look forward to the many more improvements to come!

Munzee on!

Social DistanZEEing Bonuses

If you haven’t marked [I’m Going!]  on our Social DistanZEEing Global Munzee Event, fix that ASAP! We’ll be awarding goodies periodically, so you don’t want to miss out! Today at 10:00 MHQ, attendees were awarded 1 physical magnet and 1 virtual magnet, which will definitely be useful in attracting the NEW Rainbow Trail MOBs or testing out the NEW Elemental Magnetization feature!

To make magnets even more useful, we’ve increased their strength so that they can now attract up to 5 bouncers! This boost will be active from 12:00 MHQ today until 23:59 MHQ on March 22nd! That’s the same end time as the 2x Mystery Days bonus, so be sure to take advantage of it!

Lastly, if you are late to our Couch Potato Party, you can read more about it in yesterday’s blog post HERE!

We hope you’ll join in on the fun!

Munzee on!
