Freeze Tag HQ Birthday Event July 21 and New Emerald Garden!

Munzeers of the world,

Step right up and join the first official Munzee Birthday party supported at, near, and around Freeze Tag HeadQuarters in sunny Southern California. If you are able to join us in person we have quite a treat for you! Be sure to log your “Will Attend” on the calendar so we can be prepared for the crowds! We have several great things in store for you, and more still in the works!

  • Unique badge available only at this event!
  • Unique WallaBee item in game and physical stickers for your WallaBee Passport
  • FREE Sample ZeeTour available around the Irvine Regional Park
  • Eventzee Scavenger Hunt
  • Prizes, Snacks, and *ZOO animals
  • MHQ and FTHQ staff and the badges you get for meeting them in person!

If you aren’t able to join us in Irvine Regional Park it’s OK because we have opportunities for you as well. First we’ve created a spreadsheet to help build a virtual garden on site! If you have any spare MVM in your undeployed list please join us! If you have other types of virtuals and want to accumulate some cap on points, or just give players something more to cap, you can deploy nearby as well!

And finally, we want there to be plenty of opportunities for points so we’d like to welcome you to purchase an emerald in the brand new FTHQ emerald garden. Be sure to choose FTHQ Emerald in the drop down option! There is a limited quantity of these emeralds (one per account) and the office is less than 10 miles from the birthday event location. While there currently aren’t tours of the FTHQ office it is growing in popularity for deploys and you never know what the future holds!

We hope you choose to join us in person, or in virtual participation as we celebrate Munzee’s birthday for the first time at FTHQ!

Munzee On!

*Zoo animals are inside the OC Zoo and not actually part of the Munzee event but you get the picture 😉 In other words, you have to pay and visit the zoo to actually see zoo animals. It’s only $2 and Craig says it’s great! We’re not certified monkey (or lion) tamers, we only play them on Youtube.

Big news about Flats and Bonus points in July!

We know it’s a little early for July’s Flat Schedule, but we wanted to make sure you had plenty of time to prepare for the fun that our Birthday month will bring!

ALL Flats will be on the map for the entire month of JULY so we can celebrate at events all over the world. That’s not the only good news about July though, members of the team want to give you special cause to get out there and cap those Munzees!

Louise has a HUGE race on July 8th so *Flat Lous will be double points that day. July 29th is the conclusion of the Tour de France so she will also celebrate with double points on that day!

Matt and Rob are looking forward to celebrating some big “Round of 16” matches in the World Cup! Expect double points on *Flat Robs and *Flat Matts on July 1-3.

And finally, while Daniel Fischer isn’t Flat he is a proud German! Germany is a powerhouse in world football so he wants to get extra support for his team.

  • If Germany advances to the quarter-finals there will be quadruple points on all *greenie munzees on July 6-7.
  • If Germany advances to the semi-finals there will be double points on all *jewel munzees on July 10-11.
  • If Germany advances to the FINALS there will be double points on ALL *physical munzees on July 15.

*This will include capture, cap on, and deploy points*

We’ve still got a lot of surprises in store for July, so get ready for Zee Greatest Show On Earth! Don’t forget to visit https://calendar.munzee.com/ to find a birthday event near you too, or get one added! Good luck and Munzee On!

New Towel Day Badges!

DON’T PANIC… It’s Towel Day!

Now as some of you may have noticed, there has been an error with the badge image for this event. The dreaded Error 42 screen has popped up on screens across the world. Well luckily just in time for the official Towel Day on May 25th, our developers have fixed the issue! Turns out someone gave them the wrong file. Simple mistake obviously.

So starting NOW you’ll notice that the Error 42 badge has been replaced with new artwork from guest artist Andy Cameron of WallaBee fame! We can’t take all the credit for this badge though. Well, we could, but that wouldn’t be very cool of us.

A huge thank you to Cleo Nordquist (QueenofDNile) for sharing her Towel Day WallaBee Unique concept with us!

Don’t Panic- Capture one Towel Day Special.

We’re also excited to offer a new challenge for the weekend! We’ve released a new badge for capturing 42 Towel Day Specials. Why 42? Well it’s the Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe and Everything, of course. What was the Ultimate Question to Life, The Universe and Everything? Well that’s a question for another time.

The Answer To Life– Capture 42 Towel Day Specials.

These badges are retroactive, so if you’ve already captured 1-42 Towel Day Specials you will have earned both badges. Also please note that both the Towel Day Specials and the Hitchhiker Special scatters will count toward the badge.

Remember that 1,979 Munzee Towel Day Specials will be on the map until May 27th at 23:59, so be sure to cap as many as you can this weekend.

Good luck on your intergalactic journeys this weekend and Munzee on!

Expanded Prize Wheel Badges!

Step on up and try your luck! We’ve added new levels to our line of Prize Wheel Capture Badges!

Admittedly the first line of Prize Wheel badges were maybe a bit TOO easy to beat so we’ve stepped up the requirements for these new ones substantially! These badges continue to show off some of the prizes you might get playing carnival games.

New Prize Wheel badges are now live to earn and they are retroactive. Help out your fellow players and deploy a few Prize Wheels too! We’ve put Prize Wheel 5 packs back on sale for $17.50 (regularly $25). These will be on sale until Monday at 10:00 MHQ time, so don’t waste any time.

Good luck and spin away! Munzee on!

Towel Day 2018 Specials

DON’T PANIC.

We’ve got a new special in celebration of the fandom holiday Towel Day! On May 25th each year fans of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy” series carry towels in remembrance of author Douglas Adam’s work. Why towels you may ask? Well in Adam’s own words “A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value… More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value.”

Since we like to celebrate things a bit early, starting May 18th at 00:01 MHQ time 1,979 Munzee Towel Day Specials will be on the map until May 27th at 23:59 on . These specials will bounce on greenies every six hours or when capped. As we all know, a towel with a “Thumbs Up” is the universal symbol for intergalactic hitchhikers, so when you cap a Munzee Towel Special three Hitchhiker Specials will be scattered to greenies within a 1/2 mile for 2 hours or when capped. Better pick up those hitchhikers before somebody like a Vogon or a pair of mice does. That would be unfortunate.

Points: 

Towel Day Special:
Capture/Cap-On: Split of 42 with minimum of 5.

Hitchhiker Special:

Capture: 21
Cap-On: 21

You’ll earn a badge for capturing one of the Towel Day Specials, but we’re going to keep the artwork a surprise because it’s THAT COOL. How cool? So cool that it will definitely live up to the hype. What could possibly go wrong with hyping up artwork that has certainly already been completed?

Towel Day Specials will be attracted to Munzee Magnets so be sure to stock up on those in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

You CAN capture these specials on your own greenies and both Specials will count toward the Specials Hunter badges as well.

Good luck on your travels and remember to bring a towel. #MunzeeOn #TowelDay2018

UK Events Reminder

Howdy, everyone!

We just wanted to remind you that Rob and Louise will be attending two events this weekend in the UK (this one and this one)! They will also be taking a trip to cap the newest Emerald Garden in Richmond Park on Friday. There are still plenty of Emerald Pins available in the Freeze Tag Online Store and time to get one before they get capped!

There is also a growing number of Flat Lous in the area, so make sure to add your own. Flat Robs and Flat Lous are both currently active on the map and Flat Matt will be active on Saturday!

We hope you’re having a great week, and we look forward to announcing some fun new things soon!

Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Becky Forsythe (rgforsythe)

As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Becky Forsythe (rgforsythe).

Who are you?
My player name is rgforsythe. My real name is Becky Forsythe.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Battle Ground, Washington USA.

How long have you played Munzee?
My sister downloaded the app on my phone in January 2013 because she was playing, but he phone went dead. In the process, she made me an account, but I didn’t start playing for nearly two years. I stated playing January 13, 2015. I think my cap streak goes from that day, also. I get hooked so easily.

How did you find Munzee?
I injured my Achilles tendon and couldn’t do anything but sit around, so I started cleaning up my phone and saw the app that my sister had downloaded nearly two years earlier. I opened it and started capping things. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing, and of course it was on my sister and brother-in-law’s account, so I immediately got them banned for playing on two devices that were 4,000 miles apart. Once we got everything straightened out, I started to play. It took a long time for my leg to heal, so walking short distances to cap was a perfect recovery and gave me a reward when I actually found a munzee to cap. It is much better now.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I like hand capping because that way I continue to walk with purpose. If I have time, I will even hand cap a virtual garden just because I like to. Other things I like a whole lot are the new people I have met from around the world and the good times I spend with family and friends on Munzee expeditions. I recently got to attend a Go Green Event in Budapest, Hungary. Everyone there was so great, and it really didn’t matter that I didn’t speak an Hungarian. Players helped anyway they could — some by pointing, other by speaking English to us. I also like that the game moves at a god pace and that it keeps changing and growing.

What is on your wish list?
I would like to see a way to help long-time players feel like they can still play in Clan Wars without traveling. It seems like more and more I hear long time players concerned about cap points because they have capped everything within 20 miles of their home. This month (April 2018) is great because of all of the recycles. And as long as I am wishing, I would also like to see an Emerald Garden in Delta Park, Portland, Oregon.

Tell us about yourself!
My husband (amadoreugen) and I play Munzee together. We are both very competitive people, so this has been a friendly source of rivalry for us both. We also love to travel and are fortunate to have played in over 25 countries. We have a lifestyle of long distance walking and have documented more distance than the distance around the world at the equator. We particularly enjoy one of our personal goals: to walk all of the National Trails of Great Britain. I think we have completed 8 so far, so we might run out of energy before we get done.

Other Hobbies Include:
Besides my love for walking, I love glass and beads. I have a tiny lampwork studio that doubles as a work shop for other jewelry component making, particularly glass fusing and metal work that I sell to local jewelry makers. Nothing valuable, but a nice creative outlet for me.

I own a small business selling ceramic beads that are imported from Kenya. This supports a project that was started by an amazing woman 40 years ago to provide salaried employment for women in Nairobi so they do not need to live in the slums any longer. The beads are beautiful, and I usually sell them at trade shows, but as any business person knows, I am always willing to sell to anyone at any time. I make custom jewelry orders for customers out of these beads too.

Any last words?
I want to thank the person who nominated me as Player of the Week and also all of the players for continuing to cap my deploys. I also want to thank the hard workers at MHQ for everything they do to make my day a little happier and a lot more fun. Please keep up the good work; you are all such creative thinkers. Jibby!

rgforsythe also included some socials, so cap away!

Announcing Rock, Paper, Scissors Badges!

Rock. Paper. Scissors. SHOOT!

We’re excited to announce a new line of badges for capturing and deploying Rock, Paper, Scissors Munzees! As part of the gaming line, RPS Munzees actually include a mini game of Rock, Paper, Scissors which you can earn more points for winning. Since this is such a unique type of Munzee there’s a special third line of badges for winning games of RPS too!

We’ll just show the first of each badge line for now, but you can probably guess the themes for each:

Capture:

Paper Boy- Capture 10 Rock Paper Scissors Munzees

Deploy:

Rock vs Scissors- Deploy 1 Rock Paper Scissors Munzee

Winning:

Bronze Paper- Win 1 game of Rock Paper Scissors.

These badges won’t be easy to come by, but they are retroactive, so your past captures, deploys and wins will count toward these. The badges are now live and available to earn.

Help out your fellow players by deploying RPS stickers as well! For a limited time you can purchase 5 RPS Munzees for $3.50 (regularly $5) in the Munzee Online Store.

You can also pick up another gaming munzee on sale too. For a limited time Prize Wheel 5 packs are on sale for $17.50 (regularly $25). These are great if you still need to earn the Prize Wheels badges. Who knows, maybe that badge line will be extended in the future too…

The sale will run until Monday at 10:00 MHQ time, so get rocking n’ rolling!

Happy hunting and Munzee on!
