NEW Myth Variant Capture Badges Are Hitting The Shelves!

With the release of our first Modern Myth, Poseidon, last month, we thought it was high time to review all things myth-related. Myth Variants have been around for a while and we recently completed the set — so we wanted to highlight their striking, unique designs with these new badges!

There are 6 capture badges to earn with a comic book theme. These badges are for Myth Variant captures, so be sure to track one down whenever it’s nearby! Think you can collect each volume? We won’t spoil all of the covers, but you can check out the first badge in the line below:

HORRORS of Mythology!: Vol 1- Capture 100 Myth Variants of any type.

There are also 3 additional new badges that have been added to the Myth Collector line. You may recall that these are awarded based on overall myth captures. As a reminder, you can see the first of this badge line below:

Myth Trapper – Capture 1,000 Mythological Munzees of any type.

This brings the total number of Myth Collector badges available to 6! We hope you look forward to seeing the new adventures depicted on each badge!

As these badge lines are retroactive, you may have already met the requirements for some of them, and should see them on your account soon! If not, please wait a few days as our system catches up with awarding these new badges to everyone who has earned them, before contacting support.

In celebration of these new badges, we have also added ALL of the Mythological Munzees to the store! Shop the whole collection HERE and remember you can now own multiples of the same Mythological Munzees! You may purchase up to 2 within 365 days. So if your original purchases were years ago you are able to buy 2 currently. This is perfect for completing Myth Variant sets! These Myths will be available in store until 12:00 MHQ on Friday July 10.

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

June 2020 GOTM Winners + July POTM Requirements!

June is officially the start of summer here at MHQ, so since a lot of us aren’t able to enjoy the usual beach outing we decided to bring the beach to you instead!

Swimming Into Summer Recap

We kicked off the month with new Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions which were a hit due to their unique characteristics! World Oceans Day was celebrated with a new limited edition Greeting Card and a special water-focused ZEE-Dayz. Aquatic Baby Animals followed soon after, with some new badges to earn! The following week, we met the first Modern Myth, Poseidon, who seemed to attract a few admirers thanks to his fit physique! World Sushi Day specials took over where the Aquatic Baby Animals left off, because what’s the beach without some delicious seafood? Lastly, the release of the Akvamariin stone rounded out all the themed releases for the month. There were many other fun releases in June that did not fit the theme as well, the most notable of which were the Trojan Unicorn badges!

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

June GOTM

When choosing June GOTM, we HAD to pick these two as they perfectly fit with our beach/ocean theme this month! 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 Seashell Garden, designed by dt07751 & hunniees, and Goldfish Garden, designed by szegedi, as our winning June GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Seashell Garden by dt07751 & hunniees in Gibsonton, FL

Gibsonton is famous for having colorful carnival employees as residents. However, it also has some beautiful beaches!

We’re not experts on seashells, but this garden likely depicts some type of tulip shell due to its pink color and the way it spirals to a point. They are the shell of choice for hermit crabs. Only the creators know for sure though!

Goldfish Garden by szegedi in Szeged, Hungary

The Holt-Maros river is the perfect border for this garden — many enjoy taking walks along it due to the beautiful scenery.

We love the HUGE smile on this cute little guy — wouldn’t you love to have him as a pet? We think he’d be best friends with Flounder from Disney’s The Little Mermaid!

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.

June POTM

June’s POTM called for at least 1 Places Munzee capture for each day in the month. We enjoyed looking through photos attached to Places Munzees and choosing our favorites for the weekend reminders — we’ve got some seriously talented photographers in our player group! Here are the links to those reminders if you missed them (with some comments from the lucky players who’ve visited those Places): Reminder 1, Reminder 2, Reminder 3

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

Thank you for showing Places Munzees some love this month! We hope that you found them convenient during this time of social distancing!

July POTM Requirements

For our 9th birthday we’re going to Camp Munzee and we’re looking for camp counselors! As we all know, the kids who have been at camp the longest know all there is to know about Munzee, so help us celebrate them!

Do you know an Early Bird or a Trail Blazer? Send us your nominations for POTM based on players who have been involved with Munzee for a number of years and why you think they’d be a perfect camp counselor! Please fill out this Google Form for every user you’d like to nominate: https://forms.gle/8h6sUqqX2inE5h4r9 Separate nominations for each user makes it easier for us to award the badges!

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 July has in store!

Munzee on!

July Flat Friends and QRewzdays Schedules!

July is our birthday month and it is going to be full of announcements, fun, updates, and new stuff. Everything we do may be subject to change. Remember to follow your local guidelines and Stay Home if required.

Forever Flat Schedule

Our first big announcement for birthday month is that all 4 of our Flat Friends will be on the map forever! That’s right, we’ve made the decision to keep all flats on the map permanently instead of on a rotating basis like they were originally planned. There are several reasons for this update, but the main reason is based on the success of doing this for the past 3 months. The number of points available on a daily basis remains high for owners and cappers with this special layer of munzees. We hope you appreciate this change in your favor!

July QRewzday Schedule

Now it’s time to mark your calendars for July 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 July QRewzdays are as follows:

  • July 1 at 00:01 MHQ time through July 3rd at  at 23:59 MHQ time,
  • The following dates beginning at 00:01 MHQ time until 23:59 MHQ time on the same day: July 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!

This year we’re going to do it in a slightly different way with player events. All events that take place between July 1st and September 9th will receive a special Camp Munzee Camper badge for players. Event hosts will also receive the Camp Munzee Counselor badge for hosting an event during this timeframe.

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 setup your basic event package!

There is one special new munzee that will only be available to purchase for event accounts! The brand new limited edition Event Greeting Card! For the 9th birthday events these cards will cost $9.99 for 40 cards! Contact Louise to order for your event!

Munzee On!

July 2020’s Resolution Is Not Just For Kids!

Now that summer is in full swing, have you been able to enjoy some of your usual hot-weather activities? While it’s certainly easier to break a sweat due to the temperature, we hope you aren’t slacking off on your fitness regimen! 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 July we are featuring jump rope! Like last month’s exercise, jogging, jumping rope is a great aerobic exercise and is also very simple to do. Another benefit from jumping rope is that it exercises your coordination and ability to focus — after all, maintaining the rhythm you have turning the rope and jumping over it at the same time is no easy feat, and it gets harder as you become more tired. The only downside (or rather, barrier) to jumping rope is that it does require 1 piece of equipment and a space bubble big enough to fit your entire body comfortably within the bounds of the jump rope while standing or jumping. If you don’t have enough space, you might get your rope caught on something and injure yourself or others.

What is the perfect jump rope length?

The answer depends on whether you’re jumping alone or with a group! If you’re jumping alone, the perfect length will depend on your height. According to LiveStrong.com, anyone shorter than 4’9″ should use a 7-foot rope, while anyone taller than 6’6″ should use an 11-foot rope. If, like most people, you’re somewhere in-between, check out the link to see how long your jump rope should be!

While it may be a while before you get to jump in a group, LiveStrong’s suggested rope lengths grow depending on how many people are jumping. For a single jumper with the ropes being turned by two others, a 12-foot rope should suffice. However, more than 4 jumpers will require at least double that length! If you’re jumping double dutch, these same recommendations apply — and both ropes should be the same length!

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

Event Spotlight: happy birthday to Munzee, Workum- the Netherlands

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 happy birthday to munzee, Workum- the Netherlands event, which took place on July 1, 2015 at Workum, The Netherlands and was hosted by bordentaxi, feikjen, and felixbongers.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

We planned a Munzee’s 4th birthday event on the 1st of July 2015.

We were a little bit nervous because it was only the second event we had organized.

Event 101 started off to be one of many.

The event location we used was our restaurant, so it was easy for us to receive guests and take care of them. We’re a family of three. Feikjen (my wife) Felix (our son) and myself, Maarten.

Like I said, it was just another event until Louise wrote us an e-mail, saying Rob was going to join our party. He was even going to arrive the evening before, so we had to re-organize the whole thing. Finally, we made it into two events. On the night before (hang out with the “guys” event) we all had dinner on the balcony of our restaurant. Then the main event on the 1st of July. A lot of people stayed overnight, so we organized a common breakfast. After that, a wooden ship with historical value picked us all up, we passed through the lock and after a little tour we ended in our restaurant for coffee, tea & pie, munzee and laughter.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

Find a nice location. We think it’s handy to pick a spot with a place around where you can get a coffee, stay dry in case of rain and to get warm again if necessary. Then get a Badge and a special capture and set out a nice walk.

What made your event unique?

Definitely the presence of Rob. It was really great fun meeting the person behind coachV and talking to him. What a privilege. Mind you, organizing an event is always fun. You meet fellow players and we have lots of fun.

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

You can’t have a birthday without a party, so we organized a 9th birthday event.

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1591535642/

No matter what, we have to be extra creative this time because of the corona restrictions.

We’ve organized 27 events until now, in Holland and abroad, we’ll manage this one as well.

Thank you to bordentaxi 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!

Pick Peaches and Pears from Earth Mystery Trees!

While fall is typically the season associated with a bountiful harvest, summer has its own delicacies to look forward to! Starting at 12:00 MHQ today, there’s a chance these new scatters will appear after capturing a Tree!

We’re also excited to announce new badges for capturing Tree Scatters. Our mouths are watering at the thought of stuffing our faces with caramelized pastries, whipped cream, and these flavorful fruits!

NEW Earth Mystery Tree Scatters

In March we introduced new scatters for the Earth Mystery, changing from Boulders to Trees. Trees are extra-special since they also release their own scatters once they are capped. It’s scatterception! We promised to introduce more scatters from Trees, so here they are, just in time for some syrupy summer desserts!

Like the Red Apples and Cherry Blossoms, Peaches and Pears are both worth 25 points for Capture. To clarify — Red Apples and Cherry Blossoms will remain as possible scatters for Trees, so you have a chance for any of the 4 types.

Are you excited to capture these juicy new pins? Check your map for any uncaptured Earth Mysteries near you! Don’t see any? Pick some up in our All The Mystery Pack and trade deploys with another local player or you can get 5 Earth credits in our new store item.

Badges

We’ve also created a new badge line based on captures of individual Tree scatters! You can check out the badge for Red Apple captures below, but remember since some of these types have been out longer than others the badge requirements won’t be the same for each!

Apple Pie – Capture 100 Red Apple Scatters.

As these badges are retroactive, you may have already met the requirements for some of them, and should see them on your account soon! If not, please wait a few days as our system catches up with awarding these new badges to everyone who has earned them, before contacting support.

We hope you enjoy this new selection of fresh produce!

Munzee On!

Celebrate The New Season With These Greeting Cards!

Tomorrow is the solstice and the official changing of seasons! We thought it might be fun to celebrate with these Open Edition cards so that they can be deployed when appropriate for where you’re from!

We are happy to announce 2 NEW Greeting Cards are now available for purchase! You can pick up Greeting Cards from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. Remember, you receive multiple munzees from your single purchase! Read the details in the store, or see below.

NEW Greeting Card Munzee Details

We have 2 new Open Edition cards for your deploying pleasure! Both cards can be purchased and deployed by any player regardless of season.

If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, you can tell others “Wish you were here” with a Summer Card!

Otherwise, for those in the Southern Hemisphere, let others know you’re staying frosty with a Winter Card!

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 season’s greeting 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
    • Summer
    • Winter
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Stay Home

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!
