Flat Day the 13th’s Friendly Festivities

Did you guess what today is? That’s right… it’s Friday the 13th! While we typically associate Friday the 13th with October, the conditions for this special day can happen up to 3 times a year! 2019 actually had 2 Friday the 13ths, but to extend our Halloween in December theme, we wanted to save Flat Day the 13th for today!

To celebrate, we’ve activated 2x points on all Flat Friends activity (excluding Fancy Flats)! If you’ve capped all the Flat Friends near you, fear not — you can stock up on some more at a 13% discount! Just head to the Freeze Tag Store!

Due to unforeseen issues, 2x points for all Flat Friend activity will be extended until 23:59 MHQ on Dec 15th, 2019. The 13% off Flat Friends sale will also now end at 23:59 MHQ on Dec 15th, 2019 so don’t delay in getting 2-dimensional!

Hurry up before our friends flatten out!

Hydra and Banshee Variants are Nightmares Before Christmas!

If you thought the Dragon and Yeti variants were spooky, these new Mythological Munzee Variants will definitely change your mind! As of 12:00 MHQ today, you can now upgrade both the Hydra and Banshee Mythological Munzees into new variants!

Much like AlternaMyths, the Mythological Munzee Variants are twists on the original Myth types that allow them to bounce to other types of munzees. These variants are only available to Myths that have been “Upgraded.*”

All four of our new variants will have the same point values:

  • Deployment: N/A
  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points

Cerberus Hydra

The three-headed canine is no man’s best friend! This variant of the Hydra Mythological Munzee leaps to the following:

Cthulhu Hydra

The octopus and dragon combo has traded having many heads for many appendages! This variant of the Hydra Mythological Munzee swims to the following:

Harpy Banshee

The fierce flyer can pick you apart at any moment! This variant of the Banshee Mythological Munzee flies to the following:

  • Greenies
  • Treehouse Munzee
  • Shamrock Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees
  • Jewel Munzees
    • Amethyst (V)
    • Sapphire (V)
    • Emerald (V)
    • Diamond
    • Ruby
    • Pink Diamond
    • Topaz
    • Aquamarine

Witch Banshee

The green-skinned gal is ready to cook up a storm! This variant of the Banshee Mythological Munzee flies to the following:

  • Greenies
  • Treehouse Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees
  • Fire Mystery Munzees
  • “Spell Ingredient” Evos
    • Tomato (All Stages)
    • Ear of Corn (All Stages)
    • Golden Carrot (All Stages)
    • Carrot (V) (All Stages)
    • Peas (V) (All Stages)
    • Family (All Stages)
    • Tulip (All Stages)
    • Rose (All Stages)
    • Lily (All Stages)
    • Carnation (V) (All Stages)

Upgrading Your Myth

Once your Myth is upgraded with the Bouncer Upgrade Credit, you can convert it to a new type similar to how you would convert any other type of munzee. Remember that you can only convert a Myth Variant once, and after a Myth has been changed, it cannot go back. Previously known as the Myth Upgrade, the Bouncer Upgrade Credit also allows for the opportunity to “nudge” your Myth to a new munzee up to three times a day in the MHQ 24-hour day after it has sat for three hours. Plus it gives you the opportunity to rename your Myth to something personal and creative!

Points for Variant Myths will remain the same. Variant Myths will also continue counting toward their specific Myth badges just like normal. The only thing that changes with an Upgrade is what it bounces to, as well as a new capture icon in the Specials list. For more info on Variants visit the Munzee Help Guide!

The new Hydra and Banshee variants join the Unicorn, Fairy, Leprechaun, Mermaid, Dragon, Yeti, Pegasus, and Faun Myth Variants. Which variants do you hope to see next? And which variant will you be upgrading to today? Let us know on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

Munzee on!

Ninja-bread Men Specials Pop Out of the MHQ Oven Kicking!

Didn’t get what you wanted for Christmas last year? You might want to leave these cookies out for Santa this year so he gets the message! To spread some Christmas cheer we’ve baked enough batches of these cookies to feed an army! You can now take a bite out of four different Ninja-bread Men cookies — enough for you to swear off of gingerbread until next year!

Ninja-bread Men Details

We have four flavors of bouncing MOB specials (2 virtual, 2 physical) from now all the way until December 18 at 23:59 MHQ time! These cookie karate masters land on Greenies and Virtuals respectively, but both also land on certain “baking ingredients” Evolution Munzees as well! Virtual Ninja-Bread Men will land on all levels of Egg Evolution Munzees and physical Ninja-Bread Men will land on all levels of Milk Evolution Munzees. The specials will bounce every 6 hours or when captured. 1,875 of these specials have been released (roughly 468 of each type) for plenty of capping opportunities!

The physical specials will be attracted to Munzee Magnets on Greenies, while the virtual specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virts. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Physical Specials

The physical specials include the Sai Ninja-Bread Man and the Shuriken Ninja-Bread Man. These physical bouncers will land on the following:

  • Greenies
  • All levels of Milk Evolution Munzees
    • Calf
    • Cow
    • Milk

The physical bouncing specials will all be worth 83 points for both the Capture and Host.

Virtual Specials

The virtual specials include the Katana Ninja-Bread Man and the Nunchuck Ninja-Bread Man. These virtual bouncers will land on the following:

  • All colors of Virtual Munzees
  • All levels of Eggs Evolution Munzees
    • Chick
    • Chicken
    • Eggs

Like the physical bouncing specials, the virtual bouncing specials will all be worth 83 points for both the Capture and Host.

Badges

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Ninja-Bread Men specials. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

We hope these combative cookies satisfy your sweet tooth!

Munzee on!

November GOTM and POTM Winners!

Far from being the intermediary month between Halloween and Christmas, November brought us some popular Origami specials, recognition for our veterans, and time to reflect on what we’re thankful for. As this month comes to a close, we are happy to announce the winners of the November Garden of the Month (GOTM) and Player of the Month (POTM), as well as the criteria for December POTM! The badges for November GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early December, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

November GOTM

This month we wanted to highlight two gardens of the avian influence — who says November is only for turkeys? 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 Owlgarden Zürich, designed by Tabata2, and the Berlin Tempelhofer Feld – Skylark/Feldlerche, designed by halizwein, as our winning November GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Owlgarden Zürich by Tabata2 in Zürich, Switzerland

This adorable blue bird is a work of art in its own right!

Owls have long been associated with wisdom and knowledge, to the extent that they are associated with the Greek goddess Athena. Was it by coincidence or by design then, that the garden blankets Zurich’s Nordamerika Native Museum (NONAM)? You’ll have to ask creator Tabata2!

Berlin Tempelhofer Feld – Skylark/Feldlerche by halizwein in Berlin, Germany

This garden is located in Tempelhofer Feld, once an airfield, and now the largest inner-city green space in Berlin!

While this garden was nominated earlier in the year, we think the colors are perfect for fall! Creator halizwein was inspired by the lively chirpings and calls of the skylarks, which are plentiful at Tempelhofer Feld in the spring. The spreadsheet for this garden even includes a link to a video where you can hear the skylarks for yourself!

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.

November POTM

November POTM’s requirements were simple — all you had to do is be a Premium Member!

All Premium Members will receive the following POTM badge. On top of the badge, Premium Members will also be credited a Golden Carrot Munzee and a Vacation Condo Munzee as well! You can expect to see the badge and credits in early December.

 

Thank you so much for choosing to support Munzee by buying a Premium Membership!

December POTM Requirements

It can’t be the most wonderful time of the year without a wreath-y good POTM badge to go with it! 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 want to see some festive fun at events! Anyone who posts a photo on an Event Indicator from Dec 1-31 will receive this badge! If you aren’t already planning to go to an event, why not host your own? Purchase Christmas Events in the Freeze Tag Store now! Don’t forget about our Best Dressed Contest either — you can kill two birds with one stone by posting the same photo on social media!

Munzee on!

December Resolutions Ask You to Dig Deep!

We’ve done it! We’ve reached the final month of 2019. Looking back at all the previous months, how has your journey of self-improvement gone thus far? This month we’d like to expand on the previous month’s theme of volunteer work by opening it up to all forms of giving.

Giving from the heart can cost nothing!

Since January, we’ve been releasing monthly Capture Streak badges centered around a year of personal improvement. Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution in our quest for a year of positive growth and change. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Besides volunteering, let’s consider the other ways in which we can give more!

The Good of Giving More

Everybody has limited resources. During the holiday season, this is probably felt even more so, as you struggle to cross off names on your own Nice list. Volunteer work is a great way to give more as it often only costs you time — but how else can we give more without further breaking the bank? Maybe you’d still prefer to give to strangers — in that case, have a tidying up session and donate your gently used items that no longer spark joy! The benefits will be twofold — you get a cleaner home, and someone else will get something they want and/or need!

If you need to ease your way into it, you can start by giving in your very own home! Is there anything around the house that needs to be repaired? Put on your ZeeQRew hardhat and fix it! Is there a Global Grub someone in your family has always wanted to try? Buy the ingredients on your next grocery trip and get cooking! Has it been way too long since your last Family Board Game Night? Break out the MH-Qlue, Monopoly, or your own preferred tabletop game and see if your strategies have improved since last time… or not!

Perhaps the most important way to give more, in today’s world of mental health and anxiety issues, is to lavish someone with words of love. Tell your loved ones that you love them. Spread the love to more distant family members and friends by calling, texting, e-mailing, or even sending snail mail to let them know how much you care. If you are already in the habit of doing those things, try complimenting a stranger. Many of us have been taught that “actions speak louder than words” and prefer to use actions (such as those listed in the previous paragraph) to show how much we care — but sometimes, actions are too subtle. Sometimes, we need to hear with our own ears that we are loved.

And that’s a wrap! We hope you enjoyed this year of Resolutions! Let us know which one you took to heart the most!

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!

Time to spice up the map with some holiday cheer! Here’s an advance notice of next month’s Flat Friends and QRewsday schedules to make it easier to pencil in some Munzee time during this busy season!

December Flat Schedule

Munzee Celebrates Origami Day with All New Specials!

Have you noticed the Flat Friends have been playing with arts and crafts?!

While we’ve been mentioning the holiday season for a little while now, one special day that you might not have anticipated us celebrating happens to be the reason for our next specials! In honor of November 11th being Origami Day, we have a new set of bouncing specials that have started hitting the map!

You may have noticed the Flats’ arts and crafts project bouncing around the map already, but there are four types of the virtual MOBs. The Origami specials will be on the map from now until November 18th at 23:59 MHQ time to celebrate World Origami Day.

Origami Day celebrates the wonder of paper folding, both an exciting and restorative form of art. One of our 4 icons features an origami crane, an image symbolic of hope and healing through hardship. Folding 1,000 origami cranes is traditionally believed to grant one wish. Today these beliefs filter into charities revolving around this recognized symbol of hope. We’re launching these specials in accordance with this message, as well as to celebrate the beauty and fun of paper folding!

Origami Details

There will be 1,111 Origami specials (approximately 278 of each type) bouncing around the map. These specials will feature 4 virtual MOBs that will land on Virtuals and specific Flat Friends Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. If you checked out the November Flat Friends schedule, you might have noticed that Flat Friends will be active throughout the entire duration of these specials.

The 4 specials include:

  • Origami Crane, lands on Flat Robs and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Lily, lands on Flat Lous and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Boat, lands on Flat Matts and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Butterfly, lands on Flat Hammocks and all colors of virtuals (277 of these specials)

The points* distribution for these specials will be the same for all 4:

  • Capture: 111 points
  • CapOn (Host): 111 points

You can access these specials by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The Origami specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtuals.

Badges

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Origami specials. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Wishful Wrappings– Capture at least one of any type of Origami Special

We hope you’re ready to celebrate the wonders of origami with us!

Munzee on!

 

*During the initial testing of these new types some players may have seen double points on these captures, but this issue has been resolved. All Origami special captures will be worth 111 points.

Countdown To Christmas With a Munzee Advent Calendar!

With Halloween behind us, it’s safe to say that the holiday season is officially upon us! Though last year we waited until Cyber Munzday to put our 2018 Advent Calendars on sale, we couldn’t resist spreading some seasonal cheer early this year! That means that you’ll be able to purchase your 2019 Advent Calendars from now through November 18th at 10:00 MHQ in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

Like our previous advent-style products, this year’s calendar will delight players with one Munzee-themed reward each day leading up to Christmas. There is a notable difference in this year’s Calendar though! The Advent Calendar for 2019 is primarily physical and will be shipped to you after you have purchased it. Due to shipping times varying that means some of you will receive your calendar before others. In the Christmas spirit we suggest holding off on deploying these until their scheduled day, but you will be able to see the calendar in it’s entirety when you receive it. You know what they say though, good things come to those who wait!

This collection of 25 physical munzees is worth more than $45 and will be available for $25 in the FT Store! If you joined in on the fun last year you know there might be some other surprises as well, but this is a great deal on it’s own!

Join us in starting the holiday season off early with 25 days of joyous surprises! Are you ready to countdown to Christmas?

Munzee on!

Munzee Toolkit Munzday

Munzee Toolkit MunzDay: Vike91

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help! This week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes from Vike91!

The week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes to us from Vike91, who hails from Kajaani, Finland. In the past year and a half, Vike91 has amassed over 650,000 points thanks to his clever Munzee strategies. Though considered a fairly new player, Vike91 has quickly accumulated quite an extensive Munzee Toolkit! Read on to discover all the goodies he packs away!

Vike91 Toolkit

First, I have a cheap jig/lure case (got it for 4 dollars in a fishing store). The advantage of this case is it has modifiable compartments.

My case contains the following:

  • Foldable scissors for cutting out too big munzees, very handy! I got them on eBay for 1 dollar a piece. (The toolkit only includes one pair of scissors, the other is just for full display)
  • A whistle for emergencies
  • 2 Personal Munzees whenever I meet another Munzee player (I wish my area had more)
  • 2 coins
  • A Munzee badge
  • A small tin box to carry with at all times, with self-printed munzees (maybe I should throw in some generics as well for QRew repair)
  • And of course, self-adhesive munzees!

I have arranged all the munzees by type/type group/size, I know exactly where each type is. There are over 600 self-adhesive munzee stickers in the case.

First column has generic and self-printed munzees.

Second column includes all the 1×2 inch sized munzees (Horoscopes, Camo Greenies)

Third column includes 2×1 specials (RUMs, Prize Wheels, Motels, Hotels, Shamrocks, and Jewels) and Evos.

Fourth column has special and Camo Greenies.

Fifth one has 1×1 sized specials (Seasonals, Jewels, Mysteries, Bowling), oversized stickers, coins/badge and Horoscopes.

Sixth one includes the over-over-oversized Mystery sticker and my Geocaching-related stickers. It also holds almost all the small things, like Personals.

I also have a backpack where I pack this box in, and just in case, I pack a power bank with me so I don’t run out of power. When charging, I often leave the power bank in the backpack, rig the cable through a hole in backpack and finally, connect it to my phone. I have been considering to get a retractable wheel charging cable for this purpose.

Finland has COLD winters, so I also carry a portable blowtorch with me to defrost frozen surfaces for better stick.

I chose all of those items, because I feel those are the most necessary items to play Munzee for me.

Maybe I have too many stickers… maybe I should go deploy, deploy, and deploy some more. Deploy… they will come (or at least they say so)…

Share Your Kit!

If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at iloveyou@munzee.com with the subject “Munzee Toolkit.” Make sure to include:

  • Your username and where you are from.
  • A few high quality photos.
  • A list of what each item is and how you use it.
  • What made you decide to use those items.
  • Any other relevant details.

Please feel free to include as much information about your gameplay as you wish to share! We want to see your creativity and learn how you play, so show us what you’ve got! And for Munzee tips and tricks, you can always check out our Help Guide articles!

A big Munzee thank you to Vike91 for sharing his Munzee Toolkit! You can thank him for sharing by deploying in his town of Kajaani, Finland!

Munzee on!
