MHQ is Throwing Out Some Boomerang Bouncers!

If you thought the Aussie Animals were the only Australian-themed bouncers you were going to get, guess again! These bouncers are both beautiful and potentially deadly — you may recall that boomerangs were originally used by Australian Aboriginal tribes as hunting weapons! Please exercise extreme caution as you make your approach — we make no guarantees on our aim!

Boomerang Details

We have six designs of bouncing MOB specials (3 virtual, 3 physical) flying around the world from now all the way until February 9 at 23:59 MHQ time! These wooden wonders land on Greenies and Virtuals respectively, but both also land on their corresponding Elemental Munzees as well! Virtual Boomerangs will land on Air Mystery Munzees and physical Boomerangs will land on Earth Mystery Munzees. The specials will bounce every 6 hours or when captured. 756 of these specials have been released (126 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 Root Runner Boomerang, the Country Crawler Boomerang, and the Great Dividing Boomerang. These physical bouncers will land on the following:

  • Greenies
  • Earth Mystery Munzees

The physical bouncing specials will all be worth 261 points for the Capture and 75 points for the Host.

Virtual Specials

The virtual specials include the Parting Sea Boomerang, the Sunsetter Boomerang, and the Coral Catcher Boomerang. These virtual bouncers will land on the following:

  • All colors of Virtual Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees

These virtual bouncing specials will all be worth 126 points for the Capture and 75 points for the Host.

Badges

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Boomerang specials. Similar to our Aussie Animals, the artwork for these badges is based on items from our sister app WallaBee! 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 bouncers will fly to a munzee near you!

Munzee on!

NEW Mother Earth AlternaMyth, Nymph Capture Badges, and POBs Restocked!

This month has unexpectedly shifted focus for us at MHQ. We had planned to extend winter by having fun with Ice Elementals, the Krampus Faun, and other ideas-that-shall-not-be-named, but the recent brush fires in Australia put the emphasis on the importance of life and regrowth. Continuing on that theme, we are happy to welcome the latest AlternaMyth, Mother Earth, along with our brand new Nymph Capture Badges!

Welcome, Mother Earth!

Ready to meet the mother to us all? This gentle lady offers you the world in the palm of her hand, joining the game as a Nymph AlternaMyth. This Team Owned Bouncer has been deployed on behalf of each Freeze Tag staff member’s account as of 15:00 MHQ time!

Mother Earth bounces on Greenies, Shamrocks, Elemental Munzees, Brown Virtuals, and Green Virtuals.

That means she will land on the following Munzees:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrocks
  • Elemental Munzees
    • Fire
    • Water
    • Ice
    • Earth
    • Air
  • Brown Virtual Munzees
    • Virtual Mahogany Munzees
    • Virtual Chestnut Munzees
    • Virtual Tumbleweed Munzees
    • Virtual Raw Sienna Munzees
    • Virtual Brown Munzees
  • Green Virtual Munzees
    • Virtual Sea Green Munzees
    • Virtual Granny Smith Apple Munzees
    • Virtual Green Munzees
    • Virtual Forest Green Munzees
    • Virtual Asparagus Munzees
    • Virtual Olive Green Munzees
    • Virtual Yellow Green Munzees
    • Virtual Green Yellow Munzees
    • Virtual Spring Green Munzees

Ready to earn some points? Capturing Mother Earth will earn you 500 points, with 50 points for CapOn!

Points

  • Capture: 500
  • CapOn: 50

Mother Earth will be attracted to both Physical and Virtual Munzee Magnets, but she is NOT blastable. You can find her by turning on your “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Mythological” filters. Capturing her will count towards the Overall Myth Capture badges. Don’t forget that Mother Earth will also count toward the current staff Mythical Meetings TOB badges! You can access a complete list of FT team accounts at the end of the blog. But first, we have more Nymph fun!

Nymph Capture Badges

Alongside the release of Mother Earth, players also have the opportunity to start earning SIX new Nymph Capture badges! Ready to set some capture goals? The first three badges in the series will appear as follows:

With your powers combined, you’ll be certain to summon Mother Earth!

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

Awesome Aussie Animals Continue the Fundraising!

In our effort to raise funds for Australia Relief, we announced the creation of 3 new virtual gardens earlier in the week. The gardens sold out much faster than we had expected, which shows how ready and willing our community is to contribute to this cause! For those who were unable to purchase garden pins, we are proud to announce another opportunity for you with a new offering!

These ALL NEW Temporary Player Owned Bouncers (POBs) are adorable Aussie Animals and they’re on sale NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store! A portion of the proceeds from this sale will also be added to our Australia Relief donation, so thank you all for supporting this great cause!

Like Pouch Creatures, Aussie Animals are based on items from our sister app, WallaBee, and represent a new era of munzees to enjoy! Temporary POBs work much like regular POBs, but they’re only on the map for a limited amount of time.  There are two types of Aussie Animals, the Kangaroo and Koala, and since these munzees won’t be around forever they have a smaller purchase price of $5 each. You can also purchase up to 5 of each animal per player account!

Aussie Animals

Aussie Animals are temporary POBs that bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. They will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on April 30, when they will be automatically archived on your account. If you’ve ever deployed a Butterfly or Frog Evolution munzee, these will behave similarly with a few exceptions.

  • Deploy: 126 points
  • Capture: 261 points
  • CapOn: 126 points

You can find these cute creatures bouncing to the following landing pads every 12 hours or when captured:

  • Greenies
  • Safari Bus Evolution Munzees- All Levels
    • Safari Truck (V)
    • Safari Van (V)
    • Safari Bus (V)
  • King Of The Jungle Evolution Munzees- All Levels
    • Lion Cub
    • Lion
    • King Of The Jungle
  • Water Mystery Munzees
  • Aquamarine Jewel Munzees
  • Wildlife Places Munzees (V)
  • White Virtual Munzees (V)
  • Virtual Blue tones (V)
    • VIRTUAL BLUE VIOLET MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL INDIGO MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CADET BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL PERIWINKLE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CORNFLOWER MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL BLUE GREEN MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL PACIFIC BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL CERULEAN MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL ROBIN EGG BLUE MUNZEES
    • VIRTUAL TURQUOISE BLUE MUNZEES
  • TREEHOUSE

Aussie Animals will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Kangaroo and Koala on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Aussie Animal visits you. However, Aussie Animals will be non-blastable. They will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on White and Blue-toned Virtual Munzees. You can access Aussie Animals under the “Only Expiring Specials” filter.

Badges

All players who purchase a Kangaroo Aussie Animal or a Koala Aussie Animal will receive the respective deploy badge shown below:

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Aussie Animals 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:

Jumping Joeys – Capture 1 Aussie Animal Munzee of any type.

Remember these temporary POBs will only be available for capture until the end of April, so cap as many as you can and keep them bouncing!

Munzee on!

Help Our Friends Down Under With The Australia Relief Virtual Garden!

UPDATE 1/15/2020:

All the Kangaroo Garden in Adelaide, the Koala Garden in Melbourne, and the Wombat Garden in Sydney are all SOLD OUT. Thank you all for your support! 

We have also updated the donation locations to better match the areas of the gardens. The funds raised from the Melbourne Koala Garden will actually be sent to the Country Fire Authority (CFA) and the funds raised from the new Sydney Wombat Garden will be sent to the NSW Rural Fire Service. The gardens are the same size so there is no difference in donation amount assuming all are sold. Apologies for the confusion on our part!

Last week we announced some special guests were attending the upcoming Australia Day events Down Under, but we also mentioned some possible opportunities to support those affected by the wildfires. We’ve probably all watched the destruction taking place in Australia from the wildfires and we wanted to help in some way.

One virtual munzee will automatically be deployed in the Sydney Garden after it has been purchased. 30% of the proceeds from this item will support emergency relief efforts through a donation to the The NSW Rural Fire Service. To learn more about NSW RFS please visit https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/about-us.

Here is the product link to the Melbourne Aussie Garden- Sydney. *SOLD OUT*

We have launched a new Koala virtual garden dedicated to providing some relief to the affected animals and communities in and around Melbourne. 30% of the proceeds from the sales of this specific garden will be donated to the Country Fire Authority (CFA). To learn more about CFA please visit https://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/about/supporting-cfa#donate-cfa.

Here is the product link to the Melbourne Aussie Garden- Melbourne. *SOLD OUT*

Today we are launching a new Kangaroo virtual garden dedicated to providing some relief to the affected animals and communities in and around Adelaide. 30% of the proceeds from the sales of this specific garden will go to the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, located just off the coast of Adelaide. This garden is near the upcoming Australia Day events, and thankfully the hosts have informed us the area is safe from fires.

Here is the product link to the Aussie Garden- Adelaide. *SOLD OUT*

Your $1 Virtual Munzee purchase in this garden will automatically deploy a virtual for your account. Each player account is limited to 10 virtuals in each of the gardens. Please note that if you purchased the max amount of spots in one garden you can still purchase up to 10  spots in another garden as well.

Thank you for supporting both our game, and the animals in Australia. Stay tuned because we have another unique way you can help bouncing your way soon.

Event Spotlight: FL Suncoast Event III

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 FL Suncoast Event III, which took place on January 14, 2017 at Medard Park in Plant City, FL and was hosted by hunniees, dt07751, Jafo43, and EagleDadandXenia.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

The Suncoast Event is held in the Florida Munzee belt in central Florida and is the largest munzee event held in the US, not associated with Geowoodstock or Freeze Tag. The Suncoast event is actually a series of Munzee events held throughout the weekend in various locations throughout Florida’s Suncoast. While these events are held over the holiday weekend in January, we can guarantee the location sites are always snow free. :-).

We have a team of hosts who make this event possible so that we may provide a lunch of walking tacos, donuts, and sweet treats for our attendees and give away prizes to registrants without charge.

We try to provide a weekend filled with fun, Munzee, badges, icons, and a game or two of Eventzee. Our attendees also are provided with a map of Florida gardens (goo.gl/tikFn3) to help our guests maximize their points over the weekend.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

(1) Have your events and Eventzee go live before your event begins. This will allow you time to assure everything is working properly and resolve any issues identified before all your attendees arrive.

(2) Identify a great group of hosts who are willing to work together to assure success.

(3) Keep it simple. If you try to do too much, your attendees won’t have time to chat or enjoy the event.

(4) Have fun!

What made your event unique?

Our event is held in a great snow-free location in Florida with access to millions of munzee points. While the food and prizes stay the same, we try to vary the event sites and offer new gardens for capping each year.

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

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1572898151/ 

This year Suncoast events will be held January 17 and January 18 in Brandon and Tampa, Florida. Full details and links to additional events are available at the calendar link.

A special thank you to hunniees for submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox! To encourage helpful input from past hosts, we have created a shiny new badge which you can see below! Everyone who is listed as a host for a spotlighted event will receive this badge!

Thank you to hunniees, dt07751, Jafo43, and EagleDadandXenia for being such great hosts!

December GOTM Winners!

December is always packed with activities — this month was no exception with Ninja-bread Men specials, an Ornament Design Contest, Advent Calendar announcements, and fun fashions and staff at Christmas events, to name a few! Before the year is out, we wanted to give one last gift to some lucky Munzee players! We are happy to announce the winners of the December Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for December Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for January POTM! The badges for December GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early January, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

December GOTM

This month we wanted to highlight two gardens depicting adorable Santa’s helpers. 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 Bearmomscouter’s Xmas Polar Bear, designed by kelkavcvt, and the Pinguin Sennelager, designed by rabe85, as our winning December GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Bearmomscouter’s Xmas Polar Bear by kelkavcvt in Allentown, NJ

This sweet bear resembles a cute graham cracker or chocolate treat!

This garden was created last year for the third annual NJ Fire Christmas Party event! Attendees were able to view antique firefighting equipment at the NJ Fire Museum and participate in a mug contest! What a unique and special way to celebrate with fellow Munzee players!

Pinguin Sennelager by rabe85 in Sennelager, Germany

What’s black, white, and red all over? This beauty!

Creator rabe85 was able to capture the cute, bulbous shape of a penguin’s body by making it larger in size, which allowed for gentle curves in its design. Unlike the Xmas Polar Bear garden, this garden was completed quite recently (just 2 days before this article was first drafted!). Thankfully, players were able to fill it in the nick of time!

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.

December POTM

December’s POTM’s requirements put the emphasis on event attendees. All you have to do is take a photo at a Christmas event and add it to the Event Indicator pin for that event.

All players who meet that requirement will receive the following POTM badge. If you have some photos still sitting on your device, you still have a few hours left! You can expect to see the badge in early January.

Thank you so much for being a part of the Munzee community in your area!

January POTM Requirements

For January’s POTM we want you all to nominate players who will brave the weather rain or shine to chase down munzees. We’re looking for Weather Warriors! They’re not afraid to beat the heat, and the snow never bothered them anyway. Tornados will have to wait if there’s a bouncer nearby. They might take this game a little too seriously, but we want to award them for their bravery!

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:

Know any Munzee players who play rain or shine? Looking at the event photos from this month, there definitely are some dedicated players out there! Please send your nominations (and photos of them in action) to iloveyou@munzee.com!

Munzee on!

Continue Caroling with the 12 Days of Texmas!

Ho, Ho, Howdy! Before we closed our offices, we thought we’d schedule in one more surprise for y’all!

Alongside our Ho Ho Hoedown Christmas Events, these specials are a holiday tribute to Munzee’s Texas roots. As you may have seen on our Facebook Page earlier today, our CZeeO is quite a caroler! We wanted to share his joy of Christmas music with all our players, so we came up with our very own “12 Days of Texmas” specials! The first day’s special is now on the map, but you’ll have to stay tuned each day to see what the newest special is!

Kringle’s Cowboy Hat Special

A new special will go live on each of the 12 Days (6 physical, 6 virtual), but at varying times each day — we want you to be surprised! All 12 specials will remain on the map until January 6 at 23:59 MHQ time. Depending on the special’s type, it will either bounce to greenies or virtuals every 6 hours or when captured, and be attracted to the corresponding Magnets.

A different number of bouncers will be released for each icon, but to start off 110 Kringle’s Cowboy Hats will be on the map until the 6th. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Points

  • Cap: 120
  • CapOn (Host): 120

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of 12 Days of Texmas 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:

Prairie Pecan Pie- Capture at least one 12 Days of Texmas Special of any type.

We hope you’ll enjoy learning a new lyric each day! What other Texas themed holiday gifts might be in store? Y’all will just have to wait and find out!

Munzee on!
