National Hat Day Specials + a Cap-tivating ZEE-Dayz!

We had a mini ZEE-Dayz at the start of the month to tide everyone over as we caught up on e-mails and other tasks coming back from the holidays — but we also prepped a full-sized ZEE-Dayz to go along with some new MOBs! Read on for everything you need to know!

National Hat Day Specials

Since it’s National Hat Day tomorrow, starting at 12:00 MHQ today, Hats will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on February 6th.

The various hat styles will be released in waves, but will end at a total of 100 each. In addition, more hats will appear as the month goes on, so make sure to keep an eye out! They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find National Hat Day specials at the following munzees near you:

Points

  • Capture: 150 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

National Hat Day specials will be attracted to Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Limited Time Scatter Details

From the period of Friday, January 14th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, January 16th at 23:59 MHQ, when you capture a Flat Rob OR Fancy Flat Rob, up to 3 Flat Hats may be scattered nearby!

The Flat Hats will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Flat Rob or Fancy Flat Rob owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These flat hat scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Flat Hats are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 25 points

For more information about Flat Rob and Fancy Flat Rob, check out our Help Guide article!

Flat Rob Discount!

Need more Flat Robs near you? We’ve got a “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” discount at the Freeze Tag Store! You must add 3 Flat Robs to your cart to use it, and are limited to 2 uses per order (in other words — put 6 in the cart, pay for 4, 2 are free).

There is NO CODE required — the discount should apply automatically! It will be valid for the same time period as the scatters mentioned above.

Double Points Details

From the period of Friday, January 14th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, January 16th at 23:59 MHQ (same period as Flat Hat scatters), enjoy double points on ALL Gnome Hats!

Please note that the image above shows most, but not all of the Gnome Hats — it is just for illustrative purposes, so even if a Gnome Hat is not in the image, it should still be worth double points during the period stated above.

Badges

There will be four badges to earn for National Hat Day specials. Three of them will require you to capture a certain number of these specials. The final badge requires you to capture each of the Hats that are released! You can see the first badge below.

As for Flat Rob and Fancy Flat Rob scatters, there are two badges to earn during the period stated above. Make sure you cap as many Flat Hats as you can to receive both badges shown below!

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

We hope you haven’t gone mad as a hatter with all that info — thanks for reading until the end!

Munzee on!

Collect CO4L and Other Goodies in Christmas Crackers!

Having trouble collecting CO4L? We promised to release some MOBs that should make the task MUCH easier, so here they are now! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on December 7th, Christmas Cracker specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on January 2nd.

Christmas Cracker Specials

These poppin’ packages will be released in waves, but will end at a total of 500 Holly Christmas Crackers and 500 Jolly Christmas Crackers. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find Christmas Cracker specials at the following munzees near you:

Holly Christmas Crackers will be attracted to Physical Magnets, while Jolly Christmas Crackers will be attracted to Virtual Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

When you capture a Christmas Cracker, you will receive:

  • 1 – 3 CO4L Credits
  • A random item inside, revealed similarly to the 1st/2nd/3rd Place Results of the #WorldBicycleDay specials or the catches from the Go Fishing specials.
    • At launch you can expect to see the Orange, Green and Blue Party Hats from Holly Christmas Crackers, and the Purple, Yellow, and Red Party Hats from the Jolly Christmas Crackers.
      • The rare Unicorn Party Hat can be found in both!
  • A random amount of points — rarer items will be worth more! However, they will always award 25 points for CapOn.

More items will appear as the month goes on, so make sure to keep an eye out! They won’t be party hats — we want to add some variety! However, this first week is your best chance at finding the Unicorn Party Hat as there are less items in the pools.

Badges

There will be five badges to earn for these specials. Three are based on the total number of Christmas Cracker specials you capture, but just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! The remaining 2 badges are based on receiving at least 1 of each of the different Christmas Cracker items. You can see the first badge below:

Yule Tide Tug o’ War- Capture 1 Christmas Cracker special.

We hope these specials inspire you to get cracking on your Munzee activities this month!

Tongue Tied Specials To Touch Up Your Utterances — Say That 10 Times Fast!

Last month, we asked about some of your favorite tongue twisters to draw inspiration from to help us celebrate the upcoming International Tongue Twister Day! We chose to feature tongue twisters that we thought would translate well into Munzee pins! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on November 4th, Tongue Tied specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on November 30th.

Tongue Tied Specials

These muddled muscles will be released in waves, but will end at a total of 400 Mega Mouthfuls and 400 Tongue Twisters. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find Tongue Tied specials at the following munzees near you:

  • Mega Mouthful:
  • Tongue Twister:
    • Virtual Colors
    • Places:
      • Library
      • University
      • Historical
      • Museum
      • Airport
    • Virtual RUMs

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

When you capture a Tongue Tied special, up to three virtual munzees will scatter nearby, like Feathers. These scatters are based on a variety of different tongue twisting phrases from around the world. These munzees will stay on the map for 4 hours or when captured, and will be worth 50 points as well.

At launch you can expect to see the following:

  • Scatters from Mega Mouthfuls:
    • Woodchuck Wood
    • Baby Bubbles
  • Scatters from Tongue Twisters
    • She Shells
    • Fresh Fish

More scatters will appear as the month goes on, so make sure to keep an eye out!

Badges

There will be six badges to earn for these specials. Five are based on the total number of Tongue Tied specials you capture, but just how many captures it takes to earn all 5 badges will be kept a secret! The remaining badge is based on capturing each of the different Tongue Tied scatters as they appear in the wild. You can see the first badge below:

Alphabet Soup- Capture 1 Tongue Tied special of any type.

We hope these specials aren’t too tough to say — or capture!

No Purchase Necessary to Enter the LotterZEE!

Like it says in the title, unlike the real-world’s lottery, it’s free to play our LotterZEE! If you see one near you, cap it! You’ll find it behaves much the same way as the typical monthly special, though there is a unique number mechanic that may dictate which scatters you cap — make sure to read all the details below! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on August 26th, LotterZEE specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on September 23rd.

LotterZEE Specials

These rotating randomizers will be released in waves, but will end at a total of 500 Physical LotterZEE Ball Machines and 500 Virtual LotterZEE Ball Machines. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find ball machines at the following munzees near you:

Both will be worth 100 points for the Capture and 25 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! Physical LotterZEE Ball Machines will be attracted to Physical Magnets, while Virtual LotterZEE Ball Machines will be attracted to Virtual Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

When you capture a Ball Machine, up to three LotterZEE Ball Munzees will scatter nearby, like Feathers, but they will only be visible to the player that triggered them. These munzees will stay on the map for 2 hours or when captured and will be worth 50 points. You’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well! However, you’ll want to be choosy about which numbers you cap!

Winning Numbers

Each week, there will be a secret three-digit number that is the winning number. If you manage to cap the digits of that number in the right order, then you’ll earn a special badge with that winning number on it! The first player who does this will also earn a Zed prize!

To clarify, the caps do not need to be consecutive in the sense that capturing any munzees that are not LotterZEE Balls will not affect your LotterZEE  number stream, for 2 reasons:

  1. You may not receive 3 LotterZEE Ball scatters every time you capture a LotterZEE Ball Machine
  2. You may want to choose which numbers go into your LotterZEE number stream — maybe you have a lucky number you’re shooting for?

Here’s an example to help illustrate: let’s say the winning number is “512.” To have that number present in your LotterZEE number stream, you could:

  1. Capture a LotterZEE Ball Machine
  2. Capture a 5 LotterZEE Ball
  3. Capture a Skyland (or other types)
  4. Capture a LotterZEE Ball Machine
  5. Capture a 1 LotterZEE Ball
  6. Capture a 2 LotterZEE Ball

This would have your number stream set to “5, 1, 2”. However, if you captured a 3 after step 4, then your LotterZEE number stream would be “5, 3” and you would have to start over with capturing a 5 again first to try again, i.e. “5, 3, 5, 1, 2”. So, as long as the winning numbers are within your number stream during the week, you will have met the requirement!

Prize Drawing

In addition, each time you capture a LotterZEE Special, you will earn an entry into a prize drawing we’ll have each week, where we’ll randomly choose 10 winners! The more specials you cap, the more entries you will have! There will also be a Grand Prize Drawing once the specials have left the map!

Badges

There will be eight badges to earn for these specials. Four of them are based on capping the winning numbers as described above. The other four are based on the total number of LotterZEE specials you capture, but just how many captures it takes to earn all 4 badges will be kept a secret! You can see the first badge below:

Raffle Ticketz- Capture one LotterZEE special of any type.

We hope you are game for these new specials!

Munzee on!

No purchase necessary to win. The LotterZEE Specials not affiliated, associated, authorized, endorsed by, or in any way officially connected with real-world lotteries. For the Prize Drawings mentioned above, the number of eligible entries received and total prizes available determines the odds of winning. Winners are selected at random by Commentpicker.com. Prizes from the LotterZEE have no cash value.

You’re in for a Reel Treat with these Go Fishing specials!

Have you ever gone fishing? Whether you’re a practiced hand or have never touched a fishing pole, our new Go Fishing specials will make it easy to cast a line! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on July 9th, Go Fishing specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on August 8th.

Go Fishing Specials

These classic tools will be released in waves, but will end at a total of 700 Freshwater Fishing Poles and 700 Saltwater Fishing Poles. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find fishing poles at the following munzees near you:

  • Freshwater Fishing Pole:
  • Saltwater Fishing Pole
    • Blue Colored Virtuals:
      • Virtual Blue Violet
      • Virtual Blue
      • Virtual Cadet Blue
      • Virtual Periwinkle
      • Virtual Cornflower
      • Virtual Blue Green

      • Virtual Robin Egg Blue
      • Virtual Indigo
      • Virtual Turquoise Blue
    • Sapphires
    • All Stages of Submarine
    • Beach Places

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

When you capture a Freshwater Fishing Pole, up to three Red Fishing Bobber Munzees will scatter nearby, like Feathers. Similarly, when you capture a Saltwater Fishing Pole, up to three Green Fishing Bobber Munzees will scatter nearby. These munzees will stay on the map for 4 hours or when captured, but the amount of points you’ll get depends on what you catch!

When you capture a Bobber Munzee, your catch will be revealed, similar to the 1st/2nd/3rd Place Results of the #WorldBicycleDay specials. At launch you can expect to see the Smelt and Rainbow Trout from Red Fishing Bobbers, and the King Mackerel and Bonefish from the Green Fishing Bobbers. More types of fish will appear as the month goes on, so make sure to keep an eye out! And don’t forget — fish aren’t the only things that can be found in the water!

Badges

There will be five badges to earn for these specials. Three are based on the total number of Go Fishing specials you capture, but just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! The remaining two badges are based on capturing each of the different Fish Munzees as they appear in the wild. You can see the first badge below:

Candy Worms- Capture one Go Fishing special.

We hope you are ready to tackle these new specials!

On Your Mark, Get Set, GO! #WorldBicycleDay Specials!

UPDATE: as of 6/17/21, another latecomer, Tandem Twins, will be out on the map! It is a virtual special, so it will behave exactly like the Toy Trike and Bicentennial Bicycle. We have also extended the capture badge line so there are now 6 badges to earn!

UPDATE: as of 6/10/21, World Bicycle Day specials will now bounce around the map until 23:59 on June 30th. This has also been updated below.

In addition, Fancy Flat Lou will also scatter the Starting Line, Midway, and Finish Line munzees, which will reveal her own version of the random race result icons. Caps of Fancy Flat Lou will NOT count towards the capture badges described below, but caps of her Starting Line, Midway, and Finish Line munzees WILL. We’ve also extended the badge line so now there are 5 badges to earn!

Tomorrow is World Bicycle Day, which was established by the United Nations General Assembly due to bicycles’ historical significance and their many benefits as a transportation solution: “simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable.” As our Global Events Director, Louise, can attest, the humble bicycle can be the start of something great, and is definitely worthy of being featured in our app! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on June 2nd, World Bicycle Day specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on June 30th.

World Bicycle Day Specials

Riders will be racing in waves, but should reach a total of 1,200 — 300 per bike. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find these speed demons at the following landing pads:

Each bike will be worth 150 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! Champion Choppers and Unicorn Unicycles will be attracted to Physical Magnets, while Toy Trikes and Bicentennial Bicycles will be attracted to Virtual Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Racers Ready

These bouncers also have a unique twist to them! When you capture a World Bicycle Day special, a Starting Line Munzee will scatter nearby, similar to a Laser Trail. This means only you (the capper) will see the Starting Line Munzee on the map. Once you start the race you’ll need to find the Midway Munzee scattered nearby, followed by the the Finish Line Munzee! If you find you’re just out of range, you’ll be happy to know that you can use Rover Treats to have Rover fetch them for you!

Additionally, when you capture a Finish Line Munzee, you’ll receive the random race result icon as well! They behave the same way as the Jack In Zee Box icons in that only the Finish Line Munzee will be visible on the map, but the result will be revealed once you capture it. Above is an example of the 1st Place Champion Chopper result! You’ll be able to earn 1st through 3rd Place for all bikes, so keeping racing to earn all 12 results!

Badges

There will be six badges to earn for these specials. They are all based on the total number of World Bicycle Day specials AND scatters you capture, but just how many captures it takes to earn all 5 badges will be kept a secret! Watch for a badge reveal post in the following days!

We hope you’re ready to rock-and-roll with these specials!

Munzee on!

Roverhaul Part 3!

Roverhaul Part 1 gave Rover the ability to dig up Jewel Shards while accompanying you on Jewel-capping sessions. Roverhaul Part 2 gave Rover the ability to extend your capture radius with Rover Treats. What does Roverhaul Part 3 have in store? A combination of the two!

Another Trick in Rover’s Toolkit!

When you capture the last stage of a Physical Trail Munzee while a Rover is with you, you have a chance of finding a Rover Treat! In addition, the deployer of the trail will also receive a Rover Treat! After all, the deployer did go to the effort of deploying and maintaining their Trail, which is not an easy feat!

Please note that this is only for Physical Trails. The chance of finding Rover Treats may spread to other types in the future!

The popup that appears after you’ve captured the final stage of a Trail will let you know if Rover has found any, so make sure to keep an eye out! You will also find them on your credits list.

Of course, if you need more Rover Treats, you can pick them up in the In-App Store for 40 Zeds, or get a pack of 10 Rover Treats in the Freeze Tag Store for $3.

As we continue to refine and improve the Munzee app, expect more Rover-related news!

Munzee on!

Jack In Zee Box Wasn’t the Only Trick Up Our Sleeves!

There are two types of people in this world: the pranksters and the pranked. Which will you be? If it’s the former, you’ll need some supplies, which we are happy to provide! Starting at 10:00 MHQ on April 1st, April Fools specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on April 30th.

April Fools Specials

We’ll be passing out the goods in waves, but will end at a total of 700 Bags of Tricks and 700 Sacks of Surprises. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find these curveball carriers bouncing to the following:

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

When you capture a Bag of Tricks or a Sack of Surprises, up to three different Prank Munzees will scatter to nearby Greenies or Virtual Colors, depending on their type. These munzees will stay on the map for 2 hours or when captured, and are worth 50 points for the Capture.

Additionally, when you capture a Prank Munzee up to 3 Elemental Scatters will be triggered! They behave the same way as they would when scattered from Elemental Mysteries.

Badges

There will be six badges to earn for these specials. Four are based on the total number of April Fools specials you capture, but just how many captures it takes to earn all 4 badges will be kept a secret! Of the remaining two badges, the first is based on capturing each of the different Prank Munzees you see here. The second is based on the total number of Prank Munzees captured. You can see the first badge below:

Keep Your Eyes Peeled for Zee Folk and Leprechauns!

As promised at the start of the week, we have some more St. Patrick’s-day themed fun for you to enjoy all the way through the end of the month! Keep an eye out for these little green men — they will be hard to spot, but you may find your pockets a little heavier after an encounter! And no, they’re not aliens — or are they?

Zee Folk Details

Starting at 12:00 MHQ today, Zee Folk specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on March 31st.

Only 17 Zee Folk specials will be available to cap! They will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. Zee Folk will appear on the following landing pads:

  • Greenies
  • Physical Shamrocks
  • Virtual Shamrocks
  • Flat Rob
  • Flat Lou
  • Green-colored Virtuals:
    • Virtual Sea Green
    • Virtual Granny Smith Apple
    • Virtual Green
    • Virtual Forest Green
    • Virtual Asparagus
    • Virtual Olive Green
    • Virtual Yellow Green
    • Virtual Green Yellow
    • Virtual Spring Green

As these specials are so rare, they will be worth 1,000 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn! You definitely 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 Zee Folk special, there is a chance that you will earn 17 Zeds! The popup that appears after you’ve captured a Zee Folk will let you know if you’ve earned any, so make sure to keep an eye out! You will also find them on your credits list.

There are 3 badges you can earn for capturing Zee Folk. You can check out the first below!

Flat Hatter- Capture one Zee Folk Munzee.

Limited Time Scatter Details

For the same period as Zee Folk activity, when you capture a Leprechaun or Leprechaun Variant, up to 3 Colored Zeds may be scattered nearby! These are the same Colored Zeds that scattered out of Rainbow Trails last year!

If you don’t own any Leprechauns, or would like to own more, you can pick them up in the store HERE! Remember that as of the Cyclops and Nymph Variant release last year, you can purchase multiples of the same myth! For a detailed explanation of how that works, refer to the blog post HERE!

Like last year, Colored Zeds will stay on the map for 1 hour or when captured. Each will award 100 points AND potentially a small number of Zeds to your account! We thought this would be a fun way to accumulate some extra currency to go towards Magnets, Secret ZeeOps, or whatever you want!

For more information about Leprechauns and their variants, check out our Help Guide articles HERE and HERE!
