Protect Your Peepers in Tropical Locales With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

Sure, the beach is beautiful and all, but there’s so much preparation required before you go. One thing you must always do is put on sunscreen 30 minutes before you go outside, and reapply every 2 hours after. Since you can’t apply sunscreen to your eyes, our thirteenth 20/20 Vision Munzee has you covered! These travel-friendly shades were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Would you wear these glasses on vacation? Maybe in a different color?

Only seven Summer Shades will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

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

Capturing the Summer Shades will add this picturesque Sunny Sights badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

These shades boast polarized lenses — what does this mean other than the distinct dark tint when compared with regular lenses? According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, polarized lenses only allow rays of light that approach your eyes vertically to pass through, resulting in a darker image but markedly less glare. It is the lens of choice for fishermen, who spend a lot of time out in the sun! However, this same characteristic makes it difficult to see things displayed on LCD screens — so don’t wear these while driving unless you’ve confirmed that your car doesn’t employ LCD technology!

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. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these bouncing bifocals!

You’ll Be the Epitome of Casual Cool With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

While we’ve had a lot of wacky and unique eye wear options featured over the past few months, maybe they just aren’t your taste. The twelfth 20/20 Vision Munzee is bound to be appealing to a wide range of people due to their classic shape, which looks good on just about everyone! No wonder it’s the go-to choice for off-duty models and movie stars. These fetching frames were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Do you own a pair of these glasses? If not, would you consider them?

Only six pairs of Aviators will be deployed, and they will bounce to all colors of 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 Aviators will add this chic Bird’s Eye View badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

If you’re not a fan of how aviators look on you, first — make sure that they fit right. The front part of the glasses should be around the width of your head. When wearing the glasses, the arms should be bent at a 90 degree angle or thereabouts — not much more (they might snap off!) or much less (the glasses will slip and fall!). If fit isn’t the issue, maybe lens shape is the culprit. Try going rounder or squarer depending on your face shape and preference. Round lenses tend to look better on people with squarer faces and vice-versa, as it visually balances your face instead of making it seem “too” round or square. Of course, this is just a guideline — maybe you like how you look with a certain lens shape, regardless of your face shape — you do 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. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these trendy lenses!

World Sushi Day specials are now live on the map for everyone and will remain available until July 8 at 23:59 MHQ. You can use the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters to more easily view them on the map. There are quite a few different specials, so check out a breakdown of each below!

Sushi Ingredients

There will be 658 Sushi Ingredient Specials available for capture on the map — that breaks down to 80 of each type except for Puffer Fish, of which there are only 18. These are attracted to either Physical or Virtual Magnets depending on their type. None of these specials are blastable.

  • Puffer Fish: every 9 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 80

Sushi Badges

There are two lines of badges related to Sushi Ingredient specials.

The first line is based on overall Sushi Ingredient captures. These badges will give you all of the tools you need for preparing sushi! The first badge in this line is a Rolling Mat earned by capping one Ingredient of any type!

The second line of badges is based on capping different combinations of Sushi Ingredient specials. Make sure to cap at least one of each special so you can try each type of roll!

You can sneak a peek at the first of each badge line (and the answer to our social post) below:

Sushi Masters

In addition to the Sushi Ingredients there will also be three rare Sushi Master Specials bouncing around the map! There will be a total of 18 Sushi Master Specials available for capture — that breaks down to 6 of each type. More Sushi Masters may emerge if they pass inspection throughout this celebration! These are attracted to both Physical or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. These are officially tPOBs on the Munzee account and are not blastable.

Landing Pads:

Bounce Times:

  • every 6 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 50

There will also be a unique badge for capturing each type of Sushi Master so be sure you track down at least one of each! How else will you reserve a table at their five star sushi restaurants?

Everything is Crystal Clear With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

These days, you might be doing a lot of online window shopping, especially if you’ve had the time to tidy up your house recently, and have things in bags ready to donate! Perhaps your attentions have been caught by something sparkly and shiny, awakening the hoarder dragon within you? Our eleventh 20/20 Vision Munzee will give you the ability to see the smallest imperfections! These precise jewel-appraising tools were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Have you ever seen one of these being used?

Only six Jeweler Loupes will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

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

Capturing the Jeweler Loupe will add this shiny Bright Eye badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

Why are these tools called “loupes”? Those who’ve studied the French language at a basic level might remember the word “loup,” which means “wolf” in English — but those words are not connected at all. However, “loupe” is French in origin! If you know a bit more French, you know that the French word “loupe” means “magnifying glass” in English, which makes much more sense. The word originally meant something closer to “imperfect gem,” but as you can see, its usage has evolved to refer to the item used to examine such objects.

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. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these bouncing bifocals!

Introducing the All NEW Poseidon Modern Myth Munzee!

All the activity that’s been brewing in the Munzee oceans has attracted the notice of the king of the sea, Poseidon! He kicks off an all new line of munzees that we’re calling Modern Myths, which our WallaBee friends should recognize!

Poseidon will be available for sale starting at 10:00 MHQ time today until 10:00 MHQ time on June 15th!

Poseidon Details

The Poseidon Modern Myth will be available for purchase HERE! He will be spotted bouncing around to Greenies, Water Mysteries, Blue Colored Virtuals*, Aquamarines, Treehouses, and Skylands every 12 hours or when capped.

Each Poseidon 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) Poseidon is allowed per account.

Points

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

What makes a Modern Myth modern? Well aside from his day job as a lifeguard, what also makes Poseidon unique is that when he is captured 3 new munzees will also be scattered nearby — these will either be Tridents or Lifebuoys!

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

Poseidon 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 Poseidon 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 Poseidon! 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! Poseidon will be attracted to Munzee Magnets and Virtual Munzee Magnets. You can access Poseidon by turning on your “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Mythological” filters.

Badges

Deploying Poseidon 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 Poseidon captures, with 3 badges currently available, but more to come! The first in this line will appear as follows:

Are you interested in owning Poseidon on a personal tag? You can pick one up here!

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!

*Blue Colored Virtuals include:

  • Virtual Blue Violet
  • Virtual Blue
  • Virtual Cadet Blue
  • Virtual Periwinkle
  • Virtual Cornflower
  • Virtual Blue Green
  • Virtual Pacific Blue
  • Virtual Cerulean

Be Careful Not to Walk Into Anything With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

If the nostalgia from the Viewfinders released earlier in the month wasn’t enough to hold your attention, maybe a high-tech version would have more success! The tenth 20/20 Vision Munzee can be considered the child of the Viewfinder, as it fulfills the same function of encapsulating your entire field of vision with an artificial environment, but is still being actively developed today. These blocky blinders were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Have you tried on a pair of these in real life?

Only five pairs of VR Goggles will be deployed, and they will bounce to all colors of 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 VR Goggles will add this sleek Virtual Vision badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

While it is not recommended to be mobile while wearing VR Goggles, many companies, such as CapToGlove and Cybershoes, have been developing controllers that make up for this limitation. CapToGlove’s aim is to make your hand the controller, with various hand gestures mapped to certain commands. Meanwhile, Cybershoes let you get in a little bit of exercise — while seated, you can move your avatar around by taking “steps.” The bottoms of the Cybershoes are designed to make it easy to slide your feet while seated. Both technologies definitely take some getting used to, but certainly something to try if you’re looking to enhance your VR experience!

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. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these trendy lenses!

Celebrate the Heroes of Today With These Soaring Specials!

With both National Teacher’s Day AND National Nurse’s Day falling on the first week of May (not to mention Mother’s Day the week after!) we thought it would be a great idea to have our next specials honor essential workers! Their work makes it possible for many of us to function while staying safe at home, putting themselves at risk. Since “essential worker” sounds a bit bland, we decided to call them Hometown Heroes instead!

The first of our Hometown Heroes specials have just launched, at 12:00 MHQ time on May 18. The first icon is the one on the far left, Stay Safe. The quantities of masks will increase at random times, once launched, until they leave the map at 23:59 MHQ time on June 7! The hero masks will bounce every 6 hours or when capped. The heroes themselves will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. The Stay Safe icon will bounce every 2 hours or when capped.

Each of the 5 mask icons correspond to a different hero! Will you be able to collect them all?

Points

  • Capture: 200 points for each mask, 150 points for the Stay Safe icon, 100 points for each hero.
  • CapOn: 50 points for ALL Hometown Hero bouncers

The heroes will bounce to all virtual colors. The mask icons will bounce to amethyst, sapphire, air mystery, citrine, onyx, electric mystery, and Skyland. The Stay Safe icon will only bounce to the white virtual.
ALL Hometown Hero specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store.
You can access the Hometown Hero specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.
These virtual specials are not blastable.

Badges

There is also a line featuring 5 new badges to earn by capturing some of the different types of specials. They are not all available at the time of launch but will be added throughout the first week. We’re revealing one of these badges below:

The Super Stamper!- Capture at least one Delivery Mask special.

Can you collect all 5 badges? Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

The Nostalgia is Strong With These 20/20 Vision Munzees!

Missing the great outdoors? Why not bring the great outdoors to you? If you are able to cap physical munzees safely and legally, keep an eye out for these rare game pieces! Our ninth 20/20 Vision Munzee will surround your peepers with lush, beautiful environments! These sturdy slide viewers were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Do you still have one of these lying around in your garage?

Only five Viewfinders will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up! 

Points:

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

Capturing the Viewfinder will add this flashy Stereoscopic Specs badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

According to the National Toy Hall of Fame, the View-Master stereoscope was first released in 1939! Quite a surprising fact, considering most people born before the year 2000 consider it a relic of their childhood — turns out it’s been around since grandparents were children! Which slides did you own? We can clearly remember viewing landscapes from Disney’s The Lion King — using your imagination, you could insert yourself into scenes with Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa!

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. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these bouncy bifocals!

World Laughter Day Specials — Because We All Need a Good Laugh Right Now!

We’re pretty sure most people have a bad case of cabin fever, so what better way to take your mind off of it than with some humor? World Laughter Day specials are out NOW, featuring jokes that have passed our staff’s (somewhat low) standards! (Note: Freeze Tag is not liable for any head injuries sustained after reading a corny World Laughter Day joke 😉.)

Our World Laughter Day specials will launch at 10:00 MHQ time on May 1, with 503 hitting the map until 23:59 MHQ time on May 17! Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, there are a possibility of 10 different icons that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Greeting Cards work. Also similar to our Magic 8 Ball special last year! They will bounce around every 303 minutes or when capped.

Each of the 10 icons will correspond to a different joke! Will you be able to collect them all?

Points

  • Capture: 53 points
  • CapOn: 35 points

These Virtual Munzees will not be blastable. They will bounce to all virtual colors and be attracted to Virtual Magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the World Laughter Day specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Badges

There is also a line featuring 5 new badges to earn based off captures of World Laughter Day specials. The first badge in the series appears as follows:

Cheesy Chuckle- Capture 1 Joke Special of any type

One special badge can only be obtained on World Laughter Day (May 3) which you can see below:

Dose of Laughter- Capture at least one Joke Special of any type on World Laughter Day- May 3rd, 2020 (MHQ time zone).

It’s up to you to figure out the requirements for the remaining 3 badges! Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

These 20/20 Vision Munzees Will Have You Jumping in Your Seat!

With our stay-at-home orders, there’s been a lot more time to catch up on movies we’ve missed, or rewatch old favorites. You may even have some fancy disks that are capable of showing a film in 3D! Our eighth 20/20 Vision Munzee is the perfect pairing to those DVDs or Blu-Rays! These cellophane clarifiers were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Don’t get too immersed into the movie — you might break something!

Only four pairs of 3D Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to all colors of 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 3D Glasses will add this dynamic Flashy film badge to your collection! Remember, down the line we’ll be putting out an overall capture line, so don’t forget to check back for updates!

 

Similar to our Theater Goggles post, the American Film Institute has created a Movie Club to help you decide what to watch at home! While they are not offering free movie streaming, they do direct you to where you can watch the movies on services you might already be paying for, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney+. What are your recommendations for movies to watch in 3D? The quick movements in action movies lend themselves to popping out of the screen, but we’d love to hear of movies from other genres that are enhanced by a 3D viewing as well!

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. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these trendy lenses!
