Keep Up with Munzee News AND Specials Inside the App!

We love how active our player community is, especially on social media, which definitely helps to grow the game! This blog, our social media accounts, and in-app messages, are just some of the many ways we communicate updates to our players.

We’re now making it easier than ever to keep up with all of the latest Munzee news right in the app. With this latest update, we hope to bridge the gap between this living app and you!

NEW What’s New? Section

This new section of the app can be found by tapping the Hamburger Menu icon at the top left corner of most of the app’s screens, then by tapping on [What’s New?] between the [Store] and [Notifications] buttons.

What's New

Similar to the Filters section, there are 3 tabs at the top that allow you to switch between the following subsections:

  • News – shows the most recent blog posts in button form, with the newest at the top of the list. Tapping on any of the buttons will open that blog post in your device’s default browser.
  • Featured – shows all active Munzee Owned Bouncers (MOBs) AND temporary Player Owned Bouncers (tPOBs) in button form, with the soonest to leave the map at the top of the list. Tapping on any of the buttons will open a window in your device’s default browser showing all the relevant blog posts.
  • Schedule – shows all active scheduled munzees (Flat Friends, QRewzees, and RetireMyths) in button form, with the soonest to leave the map at the top of the list. Tapping on any of the buttons will open the current schedule for that munzee in your device’s default browser.

When there’s new information released you’ll also see a red icon next to “What’s New?” to let you know there’s been some breaking news! We’re still putting out in-app messages, emails, social posts and more, but this section is meant so players can easily access a collective area for all their Munzee news.

Button Migration

To make room for the [What’s New?] button, we moved the old [Offline Mode] button into the [Tools] section, and renamed it [Offline Queue].

We hope you find this NEW app section useful, whether you’re at home reading the latest blog post or out in the wild hunting the current active MOBs!

Munzee on!

Reset Evolution Munzees Inside the App!

We had a lot of information for you yesterday on all the changes for Elemental Munzees, so to make sure this update didn’t fly under the radar, we’ve decided to feature it in its very own blog post. As of the updates made yesterday, you can now reset Evolution Munzees inside the app!

How to Reset an Evolution Munzee

Previously, this functionality was only available on the Munzee website. If you need a refresher on that, you can check out the instructions in the Help Guide.

Anyone can reset any Evolution Munzee in the app, whether you own the munzee or not:

  • Navigate to the Munzee Details of the Evolution Munzee you would like to reset
  • Tap on the purple [Reset Evolution] button at the bottom of the screen
  • Confirm that you would like to use an Evolution Reset Credit in the following popup
  • That’s it!

Reset Evolution Munzee

 

Benefits of Resetting Evolution Munzees

As illustrated in our screenshots above, the main benefit of resetting an Evolution Munzee is that you will be able to capture stages of that munzee that you haven’t captured yet!

While that often means earlier stages for most players, the opposite can also apply: if the Evolution Munzee has variants at the final stage, such as the Flower Evolutions, resetting it will re-roll the dice! This means you could potentially cap all 5 of the Carnation Blossoms below from the same munzee!

Sound Familiar?

If you’ve been keeping up with our recent updates, you may notice we’ve done quite a few relating to this specific area of the app:

We are always trying to find ways to balance the advanced gameplay available on our website with the convenience — and unfortunately, smaller screen size — of our app. We hope this change accomplishes that, and that you look forward to the many more improvements to come!

Munzee on!

Munzee Event Safety Concerns

Like many around the world, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Although our real-world adventure game encourages players to explore the areas around them, the safety of our players is of paramount importance. 

At this moment we are not canceling any Munzee Events that hosts have put so much time and effort into planning. We instead will be extending the Fall Into Spring event time frame through May 31st, or later if necessary. So any themed event packages purchased can be rescheduled to a different time during this period. As always please reach out to Events Manager Louise Gibson by emailing her at events@munzee.com for all of your event needs.

We encourage hosts and players alike to use caution in the weeks to come regarding their own personal safety. We urge you all to stay safe and follow local guidelines in regards to large event gatherings. 

Regular gameplay can still be enjoyed around the world, but we do caution those in areas with higher risk of COVID-19 to use their best judgment when playing. Clan Wars will continue as planned, so we suggest players communicate with one another to help grow virtual gameplay for those worried about safety in their area. 

We thank you all for your support of our game. Our mission has always been to build community through active gameplay, but above all we must keep player safety as a top priority. We will continue to reassess the situation in the weeks to come. Stay safe and Munzee on.

Destination Renovation Explanation!

…renovating a MOTEL!???

If you build it, they will come. But what if you’ve already built it, and players have come and gone? Well we’re looking to do a little construction, so we’re excited to announce that Destination Renovations are now LIVE for Motel Munzees!

This new feature will allow players to renovate Motels and add additional rooms for even more capping fun. You’ll be able to renovate any Motel Munzee (whether you own it or not) on both the web and Munzee app. Find a breakdown of all the details below!

Star Struck:

Motel Munzees are now a star-based system. Each star ranking equals 5 rooms, so effective immediately all original Motel Munzees have been converted into 1-Star Motels. The icon images on the map are currently updating, but if you do see a “blank” or original Motel icon please note that, that is indeed a 1-Star Motel.

Renovating Motels will offer the following:

  • 1-Star Motel: 5 rooms (Standard Motel)
  • 2-Star Motel: 10 Rooms
  • 3-Star Motel: 15 Rooms

By renovating you could be a part of a 3-Star Motel that is now on par with Virtual Resorts in terms of number of rooms, but worth so many more points! Every time you Renovate a Motel you’ll earn 50 points as well, so get your construction hat on!

The Destination Renovation is currently only available for Motel Munzees, but it’s safe to say construction on other Destination Munzee types may break ground soon!

So how do you Renovate a Motel? Well first you’ll need a Destination Credit!

Destination Credit:

All Motel Munzee credits have now been converted into Destination Credits. Players will use Destination Credits to both convert generic munzees into Motels, and also to renovate Motels.

  • Converting a greenie into a Motel = 1 Destination Credit
  • Renovating a Motel = 1 Destination Credit per 5 rooms.

You may see that you already have Destination Credits in your inventory. These were previously Motel Credits you had earned, for many players. As more physical Destination types are allowed to renovate these types may also get converted into Destination Credits, but for now Destination credits can only be used for Motels. You can purchase Destination Credits in the Freeze Tag Online Store, so be sure to stock up in case you come across any full Motels!

A Note on Motel Munzee Stickers:

If you have pre-coded Motel stickers that have yet to be deployed, they should still work just fine! When you go through the deploy process, you’ll just see a 1-Star Motel pin in place of the old Motel pin. However, if you do run into any issues, sticker-related or otherwise, please e-mail support@munzee.com!

How To Renovate A Destination:

You’ll be able to renovate Motel Munzees in the app AND on the Munzee website!

Anyone can renovate a Motel Munzee in the app:

  • Navigate to the Munzee Details of the Motel you would like to renovate
  • Tap on the blue [Renovate Destination] button at the bottom of the screen
  • Confirm that you would like to use a Destination Credit in the following popup
  • That’s it!

Destination Renovation Screenshot

Only the player who owns the Motel, or ZeeQRew members will be able to renovate Motels on the Munzee Website:

  • Click [Edit Munzee] on the munzee you would like to renovate
  • Click [Renovate]
  • Click [Upgrade] on the level you would like to make the munzee
    • The number on the left is your inventory of Destination Credits
    • The number on the right is how many Credits it costs to renovate
  • Confirm that you would like to use a Destination Credit in the following popup
  • Success!

Benefits Of Destination Renovation:

Alongside an increase in CapOn points for Motel room owners there are a number of benefits for Renovating Munzees!

  • If you try to cap a Motel and find that it’s full, you can renovate it and then cap it again to get a room for yourself.
  • If you wanted to help friends or clan members get into a full motel, you can renovate it from any location in the world.
  • If your own Motel is full, you can renovate it to get more CapOn points from other players who might flock to get the new rooms.
  • If you’ve got a lot of Credits in stock, but no room to deploy Destination Munzees, this let’s you make your existing Motels even better!
  • Offer to renovate other players’ Motels in exchange for virtual trades!?! Help grow the worldwide community.
  • Make physical Destinations that require physical activity even MORE valuable!

We hope you’re as excited as we are for these new credits! We’re always looking for ways to refresh the map and add value to game pieces you may already own!

Take a walk around your neighborhood — maybe the landscape has already changed!

Munzee on!

Jewel Magnetization + New Packs in the In-App Store!

As we head into the last few days of February, we wanted to cap off this jewel-focused month with some exciting news!

Jewel Magnetization

One of the ideas we bounced around in the recent gameplay survey was whether you would like to be able to magnetize more munzee types. The majority was in favor of this idea, and it made sense to us, too — why not give Magnets more bang for their buck? Starting from today via an OTA update you can now use Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets on Jewel Munzees!

The specific Jewel you magnetize will still only bring Bouncers that land on that type of Munzee though, so you’ll be able to have a bit more control over what you’re attracting. This should help Myth chasers encounter some of the rarer myths out there, like Chimeras and Goblins.

You can easily magnetize jewels within the app, but you can also magnetize on the web as well. To learn more about Magnetizing munzees visit the Munzee Help Guide.

 

New Packs Available Via The In-App Store!

To complement this new feature, we’ve also added new multi-packs to our In-App Store! Now you can use Zeds to buy the following products in packs of 10:

  • Physical Magnets
  • Virtual Magnets
  • Mini Blast Captures
  • Blast Captures
  • MEGA Blast Captures

We hope these changes add value to items you probably already own, and make gameplay more streamlined! We’ve also heard you would be interested in purchasing Zeds online. We’ve added them to the store now, for a LIMITED time! So stock up while you can for access to the new items in the In-App Store!

There are a few more surprises to come which we think you’ll enjoy, so keep an eye out for our announcements!

Finding A Munzee Event Near You Has Never Been Easier!

Munzee Events have proven time and time again to be a great way to maintain the wonderful player community and to grow the game by introducing it to new players. As we’ve said before, one of our goals this year is to make Munzee Events easier for both hosts and attendees. We’ve taken steps toward that for hosts with our line of Event Spotlight blog posts, so now it’s time for us to do the same for attendees! 

We’re excited to announce that you’ll now be able to check out Munzee Events near you and more in our latest over-the-air (OTA) update!

Upcoming Events Screenshot

Munzee Events List Updates

One feature we’ve always wanted to improve in the app was the Events area. If you aren’t sure what we’re talking about, here’s a quick tutorial — tap on the Hamburger Menu and then tap on [Munzee Events].

We decided to take the best of both worlds! The current version of the app was designed to show much more helpful information than the Event Indicator pin’s munzee details. Now, the app displays the same information displayed on the Munzee Calendar, combined with the old way of showing the Event Indicator pin’s location. The list now shows the following:

  • Name of the event
  • Date of the event
  • Time of the event
  • A button to take you to the Munzee Calendar details

Additionally, events are now ordered in the list by date and time, which should be helpful for days with a series of events, such as the recent SunCoast and OzDayZee events, or the upcoming Munzee Madness 9 events! Distance-wise, events up to 500 miles away will appear in the list, in case you feel like taking a LONG drive!

Event Details Screenshot

Munzee Events Details Updates

We also updated what happens when you tap on an Event Indicator in the list to view its details. Along with the name, date, and time of the event, there is also:

  • A link out to the Munzee Calendar so you can easily mark whether you’re attending the event
    • NOTE: You’ll need to log into your Munzee account on the Calendar page for this to go through!
  • The address of the event location
  • Any extra details provided by the event host

As before, you can use the [Map] button to jump to the Event Indicator pin’s location on the map. This makes it easy to check if you’ve deployed any munzees nearby so you can rack up the points once the event takes place!

We hope this makes it much easier to find an event to look forward to, to pencil in some time for Munzee in your busy schedule, and to find more Munzee players nearby!

If you are a prospective Event Host, we hope this gives you a push in the right direction, as it should be much easier for people to find out about your event! Don’t forget that we are currently offering Spring Event packages if you want to match with our current theme!

Munzee On!

Announcing the Grand Opening of Our In-App Store!

Have you ever gone to a Munzee event and realized you didn’t have enough blasts? Have you ever been out in the field for Clan Wars, desperately trying to get enough points to meet level requirements without specific credits? Well, the latest  update to the Munzee app will address all of these issues and more!

Please note that you can only get access to the new In-App Store by updating your app in the Apple App or Google Play Stores. This is not an Over-The-Air (OTA) Update, it may take longer for the update to be available. If you don’t see it in the app stores yet, check back later!

NEW In-App Store

Why have an In-App store? Convenience for you! Now you can purchase select Munzee products at your convenience, just by navigating to the In-App Store! No more booting up your computer every time you want to buy something, or dealing with the less friendly mobile version of store.freezetag.com. The In-App Store is linked  to your Apple or Google Play accounts for an even easier purchasing experience! 

You can access the new in-app store from a number of different areas in the app including the top of the map screen, the side menu, and when using certain items. For example if you go to activate a Magnet and you’re all out of stock, you can purchase one right then and there!

For the introduction of an in-app store we decided to keep things simple by paring down the offerings. You’ll see the basics of Munzee gameplay pieces in stock, with a few new products sprinkled in as well. 

NEW In-App Currency

The new In-App Store also comes with a new in-app currency. Zeds can be used to purchase in-game items, like Blast Captures, Magnets, Boosters and more! You can purchase Zeds in the In-App Store in a variety of different bundles, and you’ll also get some Zeds with your (one-time) Virtual StarterPak purchase. Starting tomorrow, you’ll also now be able to earn Zeds from Prize Wheels, and Pimedus captures as well!

 

NEW Products!

What are these “new products”? The first for your consideration is the Virtual StarterPak! Like the Physical StarterPak, this Virtual StarterPak will contain a good variety of virtual munzees at a discount, perfect for introducing any new players to the virtual game. Existing players can also purchase this pack! It is available for a one-time purchase per player. 

Next on the list are the 2 new Blast Capture types — the MEGA and Mini Blast! These additional blast sizes will allow you greater control over how many munzees you capture. The MEGA Blast can capture up to 500 virtual munzees within a 1-mile radius, while the Mini Blast can capture up to 50 virtual munzees within a 1-mile radius. These new types are currently only available through the In-App Store though, so be sure to check it out! 

Lastly, we bring you a few not-totally-new things, but things that were previously unavailable for purchase: Physical Capture Boosters and Virtual Deploy Boosters, both of which will be available in Special Packs as you’ll see in the list below.

Now, we’ll leave you to peruse the list of products! Is there anything else you’d like to see in the store?
