Need Some Assistance? Call In The Pro-fright-ionals!

Would you believe we got the idea for these specials from a Dad Joke group? Once we heard the joke (“We all know Albert Einstein was a genius… But his brother Frank was a monster.”), we couldn’t pass it up, especially since we’ve already done a similar concept with Modern Myths! We hope you enjoy working with the Pro-fright-ionals! These specials are now live on the map for everyone and will remain available until October 31 at 23:59 MHQ.

Pro-fright-ional Details

There will be a total of 800 Pro-fright-ional Specials available for capture — that breaks down to 200 of each type. When you capture a Pro-fright-ional, you will earn 1 – 3 Candy Corn Credits! More Pro-fright-ionals may emerge if we feel that their Candy Corn Credit quota isn’t being met. Half of the Pro-fright-ionals will only land on physical munzees, while the other half will only land on virtual munzees, as you can see below:

Landing Pads:

Bounce Times:

  • every 4 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 150
  • CapOn: 50

You can use the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters to more easily view them on the map. These are attracted to Physical or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. These are officially tPOBs on the Munzee account and are not blastable.

Badges

There are 5 badges related to Pro-fright-ional specials.

The first 4 are based on the total number of Pro-fright-ional specials captured. You can sneak a peek at the first of this badge line below:

Monstrous Mind!- Capture 1 Pro-fright-ionals special of any type.

The final badge requires you to capture at least one of each Pro-fright-ional. Since there’s only one badge in this line, we’d like to keep it a secret for now. Hopefully it shouldn’t be too tough to get!

We hope you’re willing to give these Pro-fright-ionals a chance — don’t let their monstrous looks scare you off!

Munzee on!

A New Gaming Munzee Fit For a Queen!

We have a special announcement for MunzPak subscribers, as the September MunzPaks will feature the brand new Chess Set Munzees! It will be available in Virtual and Hybrid MunzPak subscriptions, which you can order in the Freeze Tag Online Store beginning on September 1 at 00:01 MHQ time (remember if you order a MunzPak before then, you will be ordering the August one!). You can also purchase these munzees by themselves or in a few Gaming Packs HERE!

Chess Sets

This new munzee type is based on the classic game of chess, which has recently enjoyed an increase in popularity due to the Netflix show, The Queen’s Gambit. Chess Sets come in both Walnut (physical) and Maple (virtual) forms, though both forms work similarly and are worth the same point values.

The point values for the Chess Sets are as follows:

Points 

  • Cap: 64
  • CapOn: 30
  • Deploy: 50

Maple Chess Sets are not blastable. To access these munzees (including the scatters), turn on their filters in the “Physical – Gaming” and “Virtual – Gaming” sections.

Chess Pieces

Capping a Chess Set will cause up to three Chess Pieces to scatter nearby, like Feathers, within 1500 feet. This means there are no CapOn points, but if you’re lucky, you’ll get the rarer pieces — the point values for all of them are shown below! They’ll stay on the map for 2 hours after scattering. The capture radius is 300 feet for these, and you’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well! These can only be seen by the person who capped the Chess Set, similar to Infrared Munzees.

The point values for the Chess Pieces are as follows:

  • Pawn: 10
  • Knight: 30
  • Bishop: 30
  • Rook: 50
  • Queen: 90
  • King: 100

Badges

There are currently 9 badges you can earn by playing with our Chess Sets, split into 2 different badge lines. One badge line, which covers 6 of those badges, is based on the number of points you’ve earned with Chess Sets and Chess Pieces. You can see the first badge in this line below:

Priority Pawn – Earn 1,000 Total Points from Chess Set Munzees of any type.

The remaining 3 badges are based on capturing a specific combination of Chess Pieces. Since these badges have special requirements we’d like you to discover as you play, we want to keep them a secret for now. Hopefully they shouldn’t be too tough for you to get!

We hope you are raring to get some pieces on the board!

Munzee on!

Can You Fix Our Ties?

For this set of specials, we wanted to try something a little different — instead of starting them around the special day we’re celebrating, we are having them lead up to the day — kind of like our delayed MHQ Bash we’re hoping to have next year in May (🤞 fingers crossed!). So, as Bow Tie Day is on the 28th, starting at 12:00 MHQ today, Bow Ties will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on August 29th.

A total of 704 Bow Tie specials will be unleashed! That breaks down into 88 of each of the 8 bow ties. They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped.

You can find these colorful accessoreez at the following:

  • Greenies
  • Premium Munzees
  • Jewels
  • Gaming:
    • Prize Wheel
      • Does not award prizes when captured again
    • Sir Prize Wheel
      • Does not award prizes when captured again
  • Virtual Colors
  • Places:
    • University
    • Museum
    • Historical
    • Cinema
    • Drink Depot

Points

  • Capture: 128 points
  • CapOn: 28 points

Bow Ties 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 nine badges to earn for these specials. Eight of them will require you to capture a certain number of these specials. The final badge requires you to capture each of the Bow Ties shown above! You can see the first badge below:

Step 1. Measure- Capture one Bow Tie special of any type.

It’s up to you to find the bow ties for the remaining 8 badges! Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

More Awards to Come!

Don’t think these are the only awards we’ll be handing out! We have 3 more awards currently planned, which we’d like you to vote on.

    • Voted as one of the Best Dressed by your peers during the 10th Munzee Birthday Celebrations.

Head to the Google Form HERE! Unlike our other nomination Google Forms, this should be limited to one submission per person. We’ll keep the form open at least until the end of Birthday Events, which means some time during our workday on September 8th.

We are also brainstorming more fun and interesting honors to bestow in the 10 months following our 10th birthday — in particular, ones that feature newer players, as more established players have certainly had an advantage in the awards we’ve come up with so far.

It’s hard to predict what the criteria will be, so just keep playing your way and

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!

If Classical Literacy Goes Up, Hades Comes to Town!

Books have always been an escape, and we’re sure many of you have turned to them to occupy your mind the past year. However, we all know ideas can be dangerous. So if you’ve been reading any banned books, this newest Modern Myth may show up to incinerate them — you have been warned!

Hades will be available for sale starting at 15:00 MHQ time today until 15:00 MHQ time on May 12!

Hades Details

The Hades Modern Myth will be available for purchase HERE! He will be spotted bouncing around to Greenies, Fire Mysteries, Gray, Black, and Dark Blue Colored Virtuals*, Citrines, Treehouses, and Skylands every 12 hours or when capped.

Each Hades is numbered and will be owned by a Munzee player. You can pick this Myth up for $20! The sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership. Only ONE (1) Hades is allowed per account.

Points

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 100

In keeping with the Modern Myth line, when he is captured 3 new munzees will also be scattered nearby — these will either be Bidents or Firestarters!

These will scatter like feathers so there are no CapOn points but they are worth 50 points for capture!

Hades is able to be upgraded via a Bouncer Upgrade Credit, which gives the ability to be “nudged” or be renamed. The upgrade credit will give you the ability to “nudge” your Hades to a new munzee up to three times a day, following the MHQ 24-hour day, after it has been on its host munzee for at least three hours. This nudging ability is only available for the owner via the munzee’s webpage and is not available in the app.

Your munzee will still retain its unique number, but feel free to get creative when it comes to renaming your Hades! Just be sure to follow the Player Code of Conduct, and remember Munzee maintains a family-friendly environment.

If you’re hoping to cap one of these brand new Modern Myths, then you’re in luck! Hades will be attracted to Munzee Magnets and Virtual Munzee Magnets. You can access Hades by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Mythological” filters.

Badges

Deploying Hades will earn you the following badge:

All captures will count toward the Myth Collectors badge line. There is also a line of hidden Capture badges that you can earn for Hades captures, with 3 badges currently available, but more to come! The first in this line will appear as follows:

Previous Modern Myths Return!

If you missed out on Poseidon and/or Aphrodite, they’ll also be back in the store to greet Hades into the game!

We hope you’re ready to welcome this new Myth incarnation to the family! Be on the lookout for more Modern Myths to make their way to Earth soon!

Munzee on!

*Gray, Black, and Dark Blue Colored Virtuals include:

  • Virtual Timberwolf
  • Virtual Silver
  • Virtual Gray
  • Virtual Black
  • Virtual Blue Violet
  • Virtual Blue
  • Virtual Cadet Blue
  • Virtual Blue Green
  • Virtual Pacific Blue
  • Virtual Cerulean

We’re Celebrating Women’s History Month Early!

Sometimes it can be helpful to look to others for inspiration and strength. We couldn’t think of better examples than these female luminaries, who overcame such difficult circumstances to become pioneers in their respective fields!

In celebration of Women’s History Month, starting at 12:00 MHQ today, Women’s History specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on March 14th.

A total of 1,200 Women’s History specials will be available to cap! They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. Each great lady favors the following landing pads:

  • Amelia Earhart
  • Frida Kahlo
    • Greenies
    • All Stages of Physical Flower Evolutions
      • Rose
      • Tulip
      • Lily
  • Hedy Lamarr
    • Greenies
    • Physical Jewels
      • Diamond
      • Ruby
      • Aquamarine
      • Topaz
      • Pink Diamond
  • Maya Angelou
  • Jane Goodall
  • Margaret Hamilton

They will be worth 150 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! They will be attracted to Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

When you capture a Women’s History special, up to three items will scatter nearby, like Feathers. These munzees will stay on the map for 2 hours or when captured, and are worth 50 points for the Capture.

Badges

As long as you cap each of the Women’s History specials, you’ll earn their respective badges.

We hope you enjoy meeting these accomplished women of history! Don’t forget to ask for an autograph!

Munzee on!

We’ve Got the Missing Pieces — Can You Complete the Picture?

It’s been a while since we had non-Card Collectors Club-related specials — the last ones were the WallaEggZ in November! If you enjoyed the art style of the WallaEggZ and the treats inside, you’ll love these new specials, which also feature art from our sister app WallaBee!

In celebration of National Puzzle Day starting at 12:00 MHQ today, Buzzle Boxes will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on February 21st.

A total of 1,000 Buzzle Box specials will be unleashed! They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. You can find these chipboard classics bouncing to the following:

They will be worth 150 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! They will be attracted to Physical Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

When you capture a Buzzle Box, up to three randomly selected Buzzle Pieces will scatter nearby, like Feathers. These munzees will stay on the map for 2 hours or when captured, and are worth 50 points for the Capture.

Badges

By capping all four pieces of a Buzzle you’ll earn the badge for that puzzle. Additionally, there is another badge for completing all three Buzzles. So all you need to do is capture at least one of each Buzzle Piece, and you’ll have met the requirements for all four badges! As you can probably guess what 3 of the badges look like, we’ll keep the final one a secret for now!

We hope these Buzzles aren’t too tough to complete!

Puzzling Eventzee!

We also have a small Eventzee hunt for you to check out! This one was made by us, so if the Groundhog Day Hunt wasn’t your style, you might want to check this one out. It is open to the public with join code PUZZLEDAY2021. This is not attached to Munzee in any way, so there are no points or badges in the Munzee game. It’s just for fun and to give you something to do while you wait for February clan wars to start! 😉

This mini event features Rebus Puzzles, so you won’t be snapping any photos this time around, but instead solving some brain teasers! Once you think you’ve figured out the answer for a Text Challenge, type it in and submit! This event makes use of our text matching feature, so if you enter the correct phrase, it will be approved immediately and you’ll get points! Otherwise it will tell you to please try again.

Eventzee will be releasing a larger version of this hunt as a Party Pack soon — if you need a quick activity for an upcoming event, this or any of the other Party Packs may very well fit the bill!

Munzee on!

Fancy Flat Friends are Going Ghost!

After 3 Flat Day the 13ths, haven’t you ever wondered what happened to the Flat Friends you weren’t able to save? That’s right — they become Phantom Flats. As Fancy Flat Lou was just released a few months ago, we hope it’ll be a while before we see her Phantom Flat counterpart — but you never know…

Phantom Flats

Like the RetireMyths and Zombie Pouch Creatures before them, these game pieces will join the map once any Fancy Flat owned by an Inactive or Retired account has been archived. These munzees will roam the map at certain times, and are worth 500 points upon first capture, with the point value decreasing by 1 point per each subsequent capture of the unique Phantom Flat.

NEW RetireMyth

Joining her sisters, the physical and virtual Nymph RetireMyth is now eligible to appear.

As a reminder, RetireMyths are not attracted to magnets, and they land on the same type of Munzee as their regular counterpart. RetireMyths will be worth 500 points upon first cap and 1 point less for each cap that follows.

NEW Zombie Pouch Creatures

Last but certainly not least, Elekter, Magnetus, Pimedus, and Puffle now have Zombie Pouch Creature variants!

As a reminder, Zombie Pouch Creatures are not attracted to magnets, and they land on the same type of Munzee as their regular counterpart. Zombie Pouch Creatures will be worth 500 points upon first cap and 1 point less for each cap that follows. Please note that Zombie Pouch Creatures will NOT level up into their other forms.

Are you ready to find some haunted munzees? Remember that these are rare finds only available at select times! You can use our handy What’s New? section to help keep track!

Munzee on!

Put on These 20/20 Vision Munzees Before Looking Up Today!

To close out a year of 20/20 Vision, we’ve got some glasses to mark a very special occasion! These peeper protectors were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Do you enjoy watching eclipses?

Only twelve Eclipse Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

  • Cap: 200 points
  • CapOn (Host): 100 points

Capturing the Eclipse Glasses will add this eye-catching Solar Sight badge to your collection! Also, as of July we’ve released the details on the overall capture line — the post is HERE if you missed it!

According to NASA, today’s eclipse will only be completely visible from Chile and Argentina — any Munzee players lucky enough to be located there? If so, here are their safety guidelines on viewing eclipses. The main point is making sure to wear protective Eclipse Glasses at all times — the only point when it is safe to view the eclipse without glasses is when the moon is completely covering the sun and not even the tiniest sliver of direct sunlight is reaching you. This happens for a very short time — just a few minutes — so unless you have absolutely perfect timing and know exactly when to put your Eclipse Glasses back on, it’s better to not put your eyes at risk and keep them on the entire time you’ll be viewing.

If you’re not located in Chile or Argentina but are still interested in having an eclipse-viewing experience, try to find a livestream you can watch! While it’s not quite like watching it up in the sky, the upside is you don’t have to worry about protecting your eyes — though you may still want to read up on the safety guidelines above, so that you are prepared for the next occurence near you!

You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. These are the last 20/20 Vision specials of the year, so make sure to be on the lookout if you’re a fan! We hope you look forward to what we have in store for next year!

Show us how you Munzee! Tweet us @Munzee or be sure to post a photo and mention us on Facebook (@Munzee) or Instagram (@munzeeapp). Good luck, and Munzee on!
