A New Nomad May Tip The Scales…

Agents, last week when we paused the competition, we came up with the idea of a “Golden Snitch”-like game piece that would be worth a lot of points. However, instead of introducing a new Zeecret Agent Competition special, we wanted something a bit more permanent. Naturally, that line of thinking led us to something very similar that we already have in the game — Nomads! We are excited to announce the new Zeecret Agent Nomad Munzee! Please note that it has not been added to the competition yet, but we will certainly announce it once it’s ready.

Zeecret Agent Nomad Details

Beginning Tuesday, October 27th at 15:00 MHQ 20 Zeecret Agent Nomads will start bouncing on Briefcases and Night Vision Goggles every 12 hours or when captured.

These captures will also count toward the Nomad Munzee Badge Line.

Points:

  • Capture: 500
  • CapOn (for host owner): 250

Better your chances at capping a Zeecret Agent Nomad by deploying a Briefcase or Night Vision Goggles near you! As these Zeecret Weapons are only available from completing ZeeOps Missions, make sure to check your Daily ZeeOps Mission each day for a chance of receiving some, or perhaps make a trade with other players who have them stocked up!

To learn more about Nomads, check out the Help Guide article!

We hope you look forward to spotting these extremely rare pieces on the map!

Munzee on!

Focus on the Foundation of Any Exercise Routine With November 2020’s Resolution!

Have you been indulging in some Halloween candy that you were planning on passing out to trick-or-treaters this year? Or indulging in popular pumpkin spice-flavored treats? While there’s no need to deprive yourself of these sweets, make sure to save some room for foods that will help you meet your daily nutritional needs!

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 November, instead of a specific exercise, we’re highlighting the importance of a healthy diet! While you can certainly enjoy healthy foods via juicing as shown in the badge art below, don’t feel obligated to try it, especially if it would require you to purchase a new appliance. As we’re sure you already know, there’s more to health than kale smoothies!

Why has juicing gotten so popular?

Veggies seem like they take a lot of prep work since, generally, you need to wash them, remove inedible/unappetizing  parts, and finally, chop them up before you can start cooking them. That’s quite a bit more manual labor than shaking a box of dried pasta into a pot of boiling water or dumping a chunk of meat into a hot oiled pan. Because of this, the appeal of juicing is understandable — after doing all that prep work, you just pop the veggie bits into a juicer and you’re good to go!

But, if you prefer your veggies cooked, it doesn’t take that much more effort to do so — a lot of veggies taste great with minimal cooking. For example, Brussels sprouts are one of the most disliked vegetables here in the US, but they’re actually quite tasty when they’re simply sautéed or stir-fried with a bit of olive oil or butter, and seasoned with salt and pepper. The only thing to watch out for is overcooking them, which would give them a bitter taste. Once you see a bit of caramelization, quickly remove them from the pan! Green beans and sweet potatoes can be prepared this way as well, and instead of using the stove, you could also roast them for a short time in the oven. If you feel like going to a little more effort, adding some minced garlic to cook alongside these veggies is sure to be a success. What are some other simple but tasty ways to prepare vegetables that you recommend?

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

The Zeecret Agents Competition is Back!

Agents, we’ve clearly underestimated the strength of the P.I.N.E. Agency. In the hopes of keeping the competition fun for both agencies until our planned end date, we needed a bit more time to make the next set of changes, and brainstorm further additions that you may see in future rounds! For the next round, we’ve made some adjustments to the point values and types that can affect agency HP. You can find a breakdown below:

CAPTURES
Add 7 points to your team P.E.A.R. Agent
P.I.N.E. Agent
Add 3 points to your team Physical Pear Bomb (+4 points)

*We may change these values between rounds in order to improve gameplay.

In addition, the starting HP for both teams has been raised to 2,500, while the max HP limit has been raised to 10,000.

There are also TWO very special Zeecret agents worth bonus points in the competition. One PINE agent will deal 100 points of damage to the opposite team, and one PEAR agent will regenerate 200 points of health upon capture!

This will also be reflected on CuppaZee’s Zeecret Agents Competition page. You can check out the state of the competition at any time there, or join an agency if you’re late to the party.

Round 7 of the competition has already begun and will run until Wednesday, October 28 at 11:58 MHQ or when one team hits 0 HP. Registered agents, check your credits page for a special gift from MHQ to help with Round 7!

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.

More NEW Greeting Cards To Send Before Christmas!

For those of you who think we should celebrate Halloween before even talking about Christmas, fear not — we’ve got a new Greeting Card for you too!

We are happy to announce 2 NEW Greeting Cards! One is now available for purchase, the other will be awarded to players when MHQ thinks you need one! You can pick up Greeting Cards from the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE. 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 Limited Edition cards for your deploying pleasure!

Complete a fellow player’s spooky front yard decor with a Halloween Card! (only available through the end of the month)

Spill the beans on a strange bug you encountered with the app or website with a Tech Issues Card. All players who captured a munzee in the last 14 days receive one Tech Issues card as a thank you from MHQ for your patience during our two October outages.

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 note 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
    • Fall
    • Spring
  • Limited Edition (will rotate depending on occasion; ONE Purchase yields THREE munzees)
    • Stay Home
    • Christmas Event 2020
    • Halloween
    • Tech Issues (not available for sale)

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.

Monstrous Myth Merch

With the spooky season in full swing, we’re also excited to announce new personal tags based on Myth Variants. Each tag features a different horror comic design, so be sure to collect them all HERE! You can also show off your Myth capping prowess with new Myth Hunter designs in the apparel collection HERE.

Stay safe, don’t be afraid, and Munzee on!

This add-on will be $25 and available after you submit an event and begin communicating with Louise. It’s only available for events from December 1-31.

We know the world is in a different state than the past and want to be sensitive to this. That is the reason we’re making these available for the entire month of December.

A Roosa By Any Other Name Would Sparkle As Brilliantly!

We think this beautiful blush-colored stone will be a hit among Funfinity Stone fans and pink fans alike! Like the Akvamariin, it is another stone created for Munzee — past stones were borrowed from our sister app WallaBee! Joining the other Funfinity Stones, please welcome the Roosa!

These Player Owned Bouncers (POB) resemble the Jewel Munzees, which they also bounce to! The Roosa is available NOW in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Be sure to shop fast, because these Funfinity Stones will leave the store at 15:00 MHQ on Monday, Oct 19! Like the other Funfinity Stones, players can purchase a Roosa for $10. No upgrade ability is available. Topaas and Oniks will also be available during this time. You can shop the whole collection HERE!

Roosa Details

Roosa joins the current line of Pouch Creatures as a physical munzee that will bounce to Greenie, Fire Mystery, Pink Diamond, and Treehouse Munzees every 6 hours or when capped.

It will have the same point values as the other Funfinity Stones:

  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 250 Points
  • CapOn (Host Owner): 200 points

Roosa will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Roosa on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Roosa visits you. It will be attracted to Physical Magnets on all 4 of its landing pads. You can access Roosa under the “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Pouch Creatures” filters.

New Badge!

Deploying an Roosa will earn you the following badge:

Roosa Funfinity Stone- Deploy Roosa Pouch Creature.

Additionally, any Roosa captures will help you progress in both the Unique Funfinity Stone Capture badge line and the Pouch Creature Capture badge line. As a reminder, you can see the first of each of these badge lines below:

If you want to brush up on any Pouch Creature knowledge, be sure to check out our Help Guide!

Munzee on!

**We understand chasing after physical jewels like Pink Diamonds won’t be an option for some right now, but luckily these little critters will pop into Treehouses as well, and are attracted to magnets on all their landing pads!

ZeeOps Program Reboot!

Agents, in August we informed you that a change was coming to the ZeeOps program, which is why we had no monthly ops planned for September. As you’ve probably guessed from our numerous hints, we’re finally ready to unveil our NEW ZeeOps program! Here’s a briefing on the changes:

ZeeOps Changes

As mentioned in the August blog post, we’ve shifted to a Daily ZeeOps Mission system. These new Daily ZeeOps Missions will NOT require ZeeCred. Those players that have ZeeCred stored up have no need to worry, as we still have that data saved. We will release more information regarding ZeeCred usage in the near future!

Each day, at 00:00 MHQ time, you will receive a new mission in your ZeeOps Hub (more info in the next section) which is located above the Clan Wars hub on the main map screen. Just click the red ZeeOps button to access this all new section.

If you complete the mission during that MHQ day, you will earn a stamp for that day and receive the reward as indicated in the mission. Currently, the pool of rewards includes Zeds, Zeecret Weapons, or the deploy of the NEW Laser Pen (click HERE to learn more) near you! As always, this reward pool may be subject to change.

If you do not complete the mission, you will simply not earn a stamp on that day (likewise with the reward) and can try again the next day. After completing the very first Daily ZeeOps Mission you will have the option to discard missions once a day. The discard will simply remove that mission and give you a new option but it’s only available once daily.

Once you’ve completed your seventh mission and collected the indicated reward, you’ll unlock the vault and earn a Spyderbot! You can find more information about this  NEW temporary POB HERE!

Once the 7 days have been completed the counter for missions will reset and you’ll start over at Day 1.

In-App Updates

Whether you’re an experienced player or just started yesterday, we want everyone to get a good introduction to this updated area.

Once you have the update on your device, you’ll need to work through our tutorials before you can unlock the new ZeeOps Hub. You’ll earn 25 Zeds for each tutorial you complete, so it’s definitely worth your while!

Once you’ve done that, here’s what you’ll find:

The Daily Tab, which contains the following:

  • A visual representation of Daily ZeeOps Missions completed, up to the seventh mission
  • The current Daily ZeeOps Mission, consisting of the requirement, reward, and current progress
  • Ability to view more information about the reward by tapping on the reward image
  • Ability to discard the current Daily ZeeOps Mission in order to try a different Mission (once daily)
  • Depending on the Mission status:
    • View more information about the reward by tapping on the bottom button
    • Ability to collect the reward once the requirement is met
    • View the time remaining until the next Daily ZeeOps Mission will appear

The Secret Tab, which functions much like the old ZeeOps area, and contains the following:

  • The active Mini Ops or other non-Daily ZeeOps
  • Ability to view more information about the Op by tapping on it
  • Ability to view old Ops

Badges

There is a new badge line based on overall Daily ZeeOps missions completed. These badges depict fun interactions between rival spies! The first badge in this line is Vault Hunters, earned by completing your first Daily ZeeOps Mission! You can sneak a peek below:

Vault Hunters- Complete 1 Daily ZeeOps Mission.

Since everything here is new, you may run into bugs we haven’t squashed, so we thank you in advance for your patience. Please report anything you find to support@munzee.com.

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.

Time For Some Good GREEN Fun With A New Competition!

Agents, here is some more intel on that special assignment we announced on Wednesday — if you were on the fence about joining then, perhaps this brief will help you decide.

Zeecret Agents Competition

It’s time to show that you’re ready to become a ZeeOps Agent through a little friendly competition from now until Sunday, November 8, 2020 at 23:59 MHQ. Similar to our Competing Camp Specials we’re splitting you up to compete as worldwide teams! This time though, there are only two teams — the P.E.A.R Agency vs the P.I.N.E. Agency– and things will work a little differently.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to work with other agents to whittle down the enemy agency’s hit points and maintain or increase your own agency’s hit points for each round. If you accept this mission, head over to the opt-in link on CuppaZee HERE to find out which agency you’ve been assigned to.

Round Rules

For the first round each agency begins with 1,000 hit points. Each team can max out to 2,500 hit points in round one as well. Maxing out hit points does not mean your team wins that round. A round will end as soon as one team’s health reaches 0 HP or after 5 days. If 5 days pass, the team with the highest remaining health will be given the win. Rounds are then reset, giving both agencies full hit points again.

A new round will begin each time an agency is KO’d until the competition ends. Please note that not all rounds may begin with the same base points. Some rounds may have higher hit point counts. After the competition ending time, the final round will continue until it ends, as normal. If the final round ends and both teams have won the same amount of rounds, there will be a final rapid decider round, with a low starting HP.

Here is a breakdown of which actions will increase your agency’s hit points, and which will decrease the enemy agency’s hit points. You might notice a few new types on this list too! You can learn more about Pear Bombs and Pineamite below, but stay tuned for the Spyderbot and Laser Pen reveals soon!

CAPTURES
Add 5 points to your team Spyderbot
Add 3 points to your team P.E.A.R. Agent
P.I.N.E. Agent
Add 2 points to your team Pear
Pecan
Acorn
Add 1 point to your team Briefcase
Night Vision Goggles
Laser Pen
Subtract 10 points from the other team Squashed Spyderbot
Subtract 5 points from the other team Bowling – 2nd Roll
Subtract 1 point from the other team Physical Pear Bomb

Laser Trail 2
Laser Trail 3
DEPLOYS
Add 10 points to your team Spyderbot
Add 2 points to your team Briefcase
Subtract 1 point from other team Night Vision Goggles
Subtract 5 points from other team Laser Pen

*We may change these values between rounds in order to improve gameplay.

Bomb MOBs

Agents from both P.E.A.R. and P.I.N.E. have left surprises around the world and it’s up to you to defuse them! There will be 500 Pear Bomb and Pineamite MOBs on the map for the entirety of the competition. That breaks down to 125 of each type in physical form, and likewise in virtual form. These are attracted to Magnets. Ironically, none of these specials are blastable.

As noted above, for the competition leaderboard each Pear Bomb and Pineamite capture will subtract 1 point from your enemy team. Please note that this is different than the actual capture points a player will earn. This secondary point structure is just for tallying the competition leaderboard for those who are playing.

Landing Pads:

Bounce Time:

  • every 4 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 111
  • CapOn: 50

Zeecret Agents tPOBs

In addition to the Pear Bomb and Pineamite there will also be rare P.E.A.R. Agent and P.I.N.E. Agent Specials bouncing around the map! They are already out there lurking around on the map and more Agents may be unleashed as Agency Heads see fit! These are attracted to both Physical or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. These are officially tPOBs on a Munzee account and are not blastable.

As noted above, since these are more rare each Agent capture will add 3 points to your own team on the competition leaderboard. Again, please note that this is different than the actual capture points a player will earn. This secondary point structure is just for tallying the competition leaderboard.

Landing Pads:

Bounce Times:

  • every 4 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 100

Badges

There are a number of badges related to the Zeecret Agents Competition specials:

  • Team Badge- Think of it as a Membership Badge! These badges feature your agency’s crest so wear it with pride!
  • Earn the Explosives Expert badge by capping at least one of each Bomb and Agent special.
  • There are three badges based on overall Bomb and Agent special captures. Cap as many as you can to earn these badges!
  • There will also be badges based on the outcome of the competition. We’ll keep those a secret for now 😉

You can sneak a peek at the team badges below:
