Munzee Fitness Update is Here to Whip You into Shape!

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, then chances are it’s finally starting to warm up (apologies to Southern Hemisphere). What better time to get active, especially since we are happy to announce the integration of new fitness features with the latest version of the Munzee app! We also have more than a dozen new Fitness Badges as well as a Community Step Challenge through the end of the month. Read on to learn more!

Fitness Updates

For all you fitness fanatics and diligent step counters, you can now integrate fitness features on the app! Our recent updates now allow players to track steps and distance using a compatible fitness provider. The following fitness providers are all compatible with the latest version of Munzee, so if you didn’t install Munzee 4.0 for iOS or Android, now is the time to jump straight to 4.1! Please remember the update is populating worldwide, which can sometimes take a few hours. So if you don’t immediately see it, just check back regularly!

Compatible fitness providers

  • Apple Health
  • FitBit
  • (NEW) GoogleFit
  • (NEW) Garmin

In addition to doubling our amount of compatible fitness devices, there are several other features in this latest update. You can learn more about fitness integration below, but here is a comprehensive list of changes:

  • Fitness features integrated with version 4.1 Munzee app, found in the Profile section of the app
  • Dual Map and Compass buttons added to the Munzee Details page
  • The compass screen now displays accurate latitude/longitude coordinates
  • Rovers now appear on the map if you’ve already captured the host, but have the capture filter disabled
  • Rovers now appear on the map if you own the host, but have the owned filter disabled

Syncing Your Device

Ready to start getting rewarded for your steps? If you have any of the four compatible devices, you can sync yours to Munzee today to start earning badges for your steps! You will be able to view all Fitness information from your player profile. Simply go to your profile and click the Fitness tab in order to view the Munzee Fitness daily activity and Fitness Vendor Authorization.

To sync your fitness device of choice, select the Fitness Vendor Authorization and choose which device you’d like to authorize. You will then be prompted to login to your Fitness device. Fitbit users, we kindly ask for you to login to your Fitbit account by entering your email and password for the Fitbit account. There seems to be an error that prevents people from logging in to their Fitbit via their Facebook or Google account options at the moment. All fitness device users, be sure to grant any necessary permission for your fitness device.

Once you login to your device, it will be linked to your Munzee account, and you will see a screen that reads “Authorization Successful!” You can now View Activity under the Munzee Fitness tab on your Player Profile to keep up with your progress! After you have authorized a fitness vendor, the Munzee Fitness tab will always be available for checking your daily activity.

Syncing your device is that easy! However, if you are more of a visual learner, we have created a Fitness Syncing Help Guide article that you can follow to help sync your device.

A Personal Challenge

Another update we have made to the Munzee Fitness program is the removal of Fitness Leaderboards. We know this may come as a shock to all of you competitive steppers, but we believe that Munzee Fitness is a personal tool for you to use to keep track of your daily activity. We encourage you all to set daily goals for yourself and maintain physical activity on your own accord. If you do prefer the challenging aspect of leaderboards, luckily the Fitness device you connected may still have those capabilities! It just won’t be a feature built into the Munzee platform moving forward.

Badges

We believe that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, but health is an invaluable aspect of well-being that should never be swept aside. To encourage staying active and keeping your heart healthy, our new update offers the chance to earn over a dozen new fitness badges! These new badges have an updated design from the original badges and even more goals to reach.

If you have already earned any of the previously available Fitness badges, you will of course keep them. If you did not earn any of the original fitness badges they will no longer be available. All player data will be started fresh with the launch of this app update and everyone starts with the ability to earn only the new badges. In other words this new sync will act like Day One in your Munzee fitness journey for all players.

In total there are now four categories for Fitness badges!

The new Lifetime Miles badges have similar artwork to the previous line with the updated Munzee M. These badges award players for every thousand miles they walk up to 6,000 lifetime miles! If you earned the previous Lifetime Miles you’ll still get to see those in your collection, but now you have all new badges to walk for! The first in the new series appears as follows:

1k Lifetime Miles – Walk 1,000 lifetime miles using a supported Munzee fitness tracker.

Meanwhile, there will be an additional  TWO new Steps Per Day badges based on achieving outstanding daily steps. Players will still be able to earn the previous three badges (5k, 10k, 15k steps in one day) if they have not already earned them, but now you can also earn badges for stepping 20k and 25k in a single day!

We’re also excited to introduce new Streak Badges earned for consistent days of fitness!  You can earn these badges by walking at least 10,000 steps a day for multiple days in a row. The first badge, The Triathlete, can be earned when you walk at least 10k steps for three days in a row! We won’t reveal all of the streak requirements just yet, but after you earn the first one you should have a good idea of how long to keep going. The first in this all new badge series appears as follows:

Finally, there is a line of new Distance Badges to earn based on completing different mile achievements over time. These work like the Lifetime Miles Badges, but are based on very distinct distances. The fun part about these badges is they will inform you of how the distance you have walked compares to the real world. For example, if you earn the following badge, you will have walked the distance of England’s east coast to its west coast!

Coast-to-Coast- Walk 192 miles (309km) using a supported Munzee Fitness tracker.

Please be aware all badges may take up to 48 hours to appear after syncing your daily steps.

Community Challenge!

It’s time for a deep stretch, because you’re really going to be inclined to get moving when you hear about our fitness contest! Starting today and lasting until 23:59 MHQ time on May 31, we will be doing a 4.1 million steps challenge! (No, you don’t have to complete those steps yourself!) Everyone who syncs their devices will be challenged to collectively walk 4.1 million steps before the month ends. All who sync their devices to Munzee 4.1 will be automatically entered into a drawing for one of three prizes!

The *prizes include:

  1. 15 Urban Fit credits
  2. $25 Freeze Tag Store Gift card
  3. 15 Urban Fit coded stickers (available only from Authorized Munzee Resellers)

*One prize per winner.
**ALL participants who sync and walk at least 45,000 steps by May 31 will also receive ONE Urban Fit credit! Steps must be in our system before 23:59 May 31 to count.

One more time, don’t forget to update to Munzee 4.1 through your app store and sync your fitness device! We’re sure you’ll have all sorts of questions, so check out the Munzee Fitness FAQ Help Guide article, which we will also be updating over the next few days as we receive questions.

We hope this fitness update encourages you to get up and start moving. With cardiovascular disease cited as the leading global cause of death, hitting daily activity goals through as little as moderately paced walking for set periods of time can tremendously impact your health!

Get active, and Munzee on!

New MOB Specials Are Ready to Hit the Map!

Think you can handle a little more excitement? Since we announced the BETA launch of our PinPoints Loyalty Program, we have witnessed many players redeeming their hard-earned PinPoints for prizes of their choosing. We thought why not keep the celebration going with the introduction of our TWO PinPoints bouncing specials starting on May 10 at 00:01 MHQ time!

Both the physical and virtual PinPoints specials are Munzee Owned Bouncers (MOB) and they hit the map at midnight and stay on the map until May 20 at 23:59 MHQ time. You can learn more about each type below!

PinPoints Virtual Special

There will be a total of 50 PinPoints Virtual Specials. Even though there may not be as many as other specials they will be bouncing quick. The specials will bounce to all colors of regular virtuals every 4 hours or when captured. Each capture will reward you 100 points AND 2 PinPoints!

Points

  • Capture: 100 points and 2 PinPoints
  • CapOn: 10 points

The virtual special will not be blastable, but it will be attracted to Virtual Magnets from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can capture the virtual bouncing special on your own munzees and on munzees that you have already captured.

PinPoints Physical Special

A total of 200 PinPoints Physical Specials will be bouncing to greenies every 8 hours or when capped. You will earn 100 points and 5 PinPoints for every capture. This special will be attracted to Physical Magnets, and you can capture it on your own munzees or munzees you have already capped.

Points

  • Capture: 100 points and 5 PinPoints
  • CapOn: 15 points

You will also earn the following badge for capturing one PinPoints Special of any type. The badge will appear as follows:

PinPointer!- Capture 1 PinPoints Special of any type

Quick PinPoints Refresher

Are you still figuring out your PinPoints account? To start earning points through our PinPoints Loyalty Program, we have several sources that can help you out. If you need help setting up your account, check out the PinPoints Help Guide and this video to get your PinPoints account set up today. And for a basic breakdown of the PinPoints Loyalty Program, check out this video, while you can also find more information about PinPoints in the PinPoints FAQ and the PinPoints Terms and Conditions.

We hope you enjoy these PinPoints bouncing specials! Remember that this is just the BETA launch of our PinPoints program, so we appreciate your patience as we work on any bugs that might arise.

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

PinPoints Are Ready to be Redeemed in Our BETA Launch! Use Yours TODAY!

Today we are very happy to announce that PinPoints are officially ready to be used for the first time! That’s right, all of your patience has paid off! The PinPoints that many of you have acquired through April Clan Wars, ZEEster Egg specials, Pimedus caps, and the current May Clan Wars can now be used for rewards in the Freeze Tag Online Store! As of the publication of this post, the BETA version of our PinPoints system is officially LIVE!

We’re so excited to share PinPoints with players, but since this is our first wide test of the system, please bear with us as everyone joins! Kindly keep in mind that there might be a slight delay in your points showing up immediately due to the influx of people creating accounts today. Fortunately this is only a temporary issue that will not affect future PinPoints delivery as they are earned.

For a basic breakdown of the PinPoints Loyalty Program, check out this video!

Before we reveal the remaining details of this exciting new program, we would like to thank all players for their patience throughout the PinPoints process. We understand that earning points without knowing the full nature of their value provided ample room for frustration. Hopefully the fact that many of you have already acquired PinPoints ready for use will justified this temporary inconvenience. We are constantly working to update Munzee and introduce positive new aspects to the gameplay experience to make it as fun and exciting as possible for our wonderful player community!

All About PinPoints

For those of you unaware, PinPoints are the credits players can earn as part of our brand new PinPoints Loyalty Program. They are also the new “store credit” that many players earned through April Clan Wars. PinPoints can currently be earned through Freeze Tag Online Store purchases, Clan War achievements, and certain munzee captures! We have plans to introduce additional ways to earn PinPoints in the near future.

PinPoints are redeemable for REAL products in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Eager to get started using them? We put together a comprehensive PinPoints Help Guide article to break down the process! The initial setup process involves a few steps, but once you set it up, it’s easy from there on out. Check out the Help Guide and this video to get your PinPoints account set up today!

We had the best of intentions of launching this program in April. Due to unforeseen delays, we have chosen to make some retroactive purchases count toward PinPoints. All purchases made in the Freeze Tag Online Store within the 3 days prior to setting up your account will earn retroactive PinPoints. The sooner you setup and link your account, the more possible PinPoints you can earn. However, please keep in mind that there might be an initial delay in these points showing up. Remember, any delay is temporary and simply due to an initial system overload.

Since this is a BETA launch, we’d like to ask for a bit of extra patience. Though it should take as little as a few minutes for your PinPoints to update, we kindly ask that for the time being you wait 24 hours before contacting support@munzee.com with any concerns regarding PinPoints earned. This will allow for any system overloads to be sorted out on their own so that the support inbox will not be flooded and player concerns can be handled in a timely manner. We thank you for your patience and understanding for any initial slowdown the launch might present!

PinPoints Rewards

We’re sure you’re wondering, just what can I buy with my PinPoints?! Ready to check out the awesome rewards? You can visit munzee.com/pinpointsrewards to see what is currently in rotation in the PinPoints store. Here you can also see what limits (if any!) there are on particular items. We will be updating the store on a semi-regular basis to remove certain items and add others, in order to provide exclusive shopping offers. The actual store pricing and availability is the final authority for all things as it may be updated quicker than the catalogue page.

Amongst many other reward options, players are able to redeem their PinPoints for Clan Weapon and ZeeCret Weapon munzees for the first time ever! Previously these items could only be earned through Clan Battles and ZeeOps Missions, respectively, so we are excited to offer more opportunity to acquire them through hard work! We know this will offer additional types on the map for capping fun around the world.

Another noteworthy feature of our PinPoints store is players may now earn an additional FIVE (5) of each Munzee Magnet type per month. This is on top of the normal 10 per 10 days limit! We hope this creates more opportunity for fun gameplay so that players can be rewarded for their noteworthy feats.

Think you can handle a little more exciting news? Perhaps you’ve noticed some new items in the store! They include a brand new Blast Capture 10-pack and Virtual Munzee 5-pack, which will now be available for PinPoints purchase! In addition, we will be launching a new item in the store as of the publication of this blog! You will now be able to purchase a Sapphire Munzee 5-pack! In other words, you can redeem your PinPoints for any of these three items or purchase them from the Freeze Tag Online Store and earn PinPoints for your purchases! 

In addition to the PinPoints Help Guide, we encourage all players to check out the PinPoints FAQ and the PinPoints Terms and Conditions for complete information about the PinPoints Loyalty Program. The FAQ page will continue to be updated as more questions come in, so be sure to check back regularly. Once again, we are so grateful for the continual player patience. We can’t wait to see players picking up prizes of their choice with their hard-earned PinPoints!

Stay tuned for more exciting PinPoints updates and the inclusion of new PinPoints store items. This is just the BETA launch of our PinPoints program, and we are so excited to share future updates! The future has many wonderful things in the works for Munzee and its players!

Munzee on!

Alien Day Means Invasion of New Specials!

Are you sad that the ZEEster Egg specials will be leaving the map on Sunday at 22:22 MHQ time? If only another egg would fly down and fill the void! Wait— didn’t MHQ promise that there would be MOBs on the map every day in April to help with Clan War requirements? AND isn’t today a funky sort of holiday? Ah, yes, it’s Alien Day. And MHQ isn’t going to disappoint. 👽🥚

The Alien Invasion Specials will include two bouncing specials, one that comes equipped with a scatter. They invaded the map at 9:11 MHQ time on April 26 and will remain until Sunday, May 5 at 23:59 MHQ time. Think you can spot a UFO? First it’s probably best to read up on them…

Alien Egg

To start things off, only one Alien Egg special hit the map. Only one?! Fear not, every time an Alien Egg is capped, another will be added to the map for a maximum of 426 Alien Eggs total.

The Alien Egg is a physical MOB that doesn’t want to stay in place. It will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. You can increase your chances of capturing this bouncing special with Munzee Magnets, since the Alien Egg WILL be attracted to them.

Points

  • Cap: 52 points
  • Host: 26 points

Where exactly can one find these scrambled space snacks? The Alien Egg will land on the following:

  • Greenies
  • Physical Farm Set Evolutions
    • Tomato Seed, Tomato Plant, Tomato
    • Corn Seed, Corn Plant, Corn
    • Golden Carrot Seed, Golden Carrot Plant, Golden Carrot
    • Calf, Cow, Milk
    • Piglet, Pig, Bacon
    • Lean-To Shed, Garden Shed, Barn
    • Hoe, Plow, Tractor

There will be two badges to earn in association with the Alien Egg Munzees. The first badge will appear as follows:

EGGStraterrestrial– Capture 1 Alien Egg Special

So, each time you capture an Alien Egg, another will be deployed somewhere around the world until 426 are active. PLUS, it will cause an Alien Potato to scatter to a nearby Greenie within 1750 feet (533.4 m).

Alien Potato

It seems the aliens are trying to repopulate their species, but something turned out wrong… Yep, the Alien Egg scatters a special for you to enjoy as well! And it’s JUST as cute as the ZEEster Hatched Egg scatters! 😉

See- sooo cute! 

The Alien Potato will hatch on a Greenie 1,750 feet from the Alien Egg captured prior. It will stay there for two hours or when capped, available to ANY player. Each Alien Potato can only be captured ONCE. They will land exclusively on Greenies within the scatter radius. Although the Alien Potato doesn’t actually bounce after it is capped, it will count as a MOB in Clan Wars.

Points

  • Cap: 51 points
  • Host: 25 points

While there are two badges to be earned in association with Alien Egg captures, there are also two badges to earn for capturing Alien Potatoes. The first in the series will appear as follows:

Space Spuds– Capture 1 Alien Potato Special

And that’s not all!

UFO

What’s vibrant green and shapeless and has five eyes? A Munzee UFO! These little green men have become a nuisance to farms around the world and they must be stopped! This hybrid special will land on physicals and virtuals, similar to how some Munzee Myths operate. While we’re only starting out with one Alien Egg hitting the map, you will be treated to 426 UFO specials from the start!

This MOB will bounce around every 4 hours or when captured. The UFO specials WILL be attracted to Virtual Magnets only.

Points

  • Cap: 40 points
  • Host: 26 points

Finally, it’s been determined where you can find UFOs! 🤪 The UFO Munzees will land on the following:

  • Virtuals
  • Physical and Virtual Farm Set Evolutions
    • Tomato Seed, Tomato Plant, Tomato
    • Corn Seed, Corn Plant, Corn
    • Golden Carrot See, Golden Carrot Plant, Golden Carrot
    • Calf, Cow, Milk
    • Piglet, Pig, Bacon
    • Lean-To Shed, Garden Shed, Barn
    • Hoe, Plow, Tractor
    • Carrot Seed, Carrot Plant, Carrot
    • Peas Seed, Peas Plant, Peas
    • Colt, Racehorse, Championship Horse
    • Chick, Chicken, Eggs
    • Farmer, Farmer and Wife, Family
    • Potted Plant, Garden, Field

There will also be two badges you can earn based on UFO Munzee captures, to bring the total to six new badges associated with the Alien Invasion. The first in the series will appear as follows:

Celestial Cows– Capture 1 UFO Special

Personal Tags

Still need a little more EGGStraterrestrial presence? We’ll also be offering special Alien Invasion themed Munzee Personal Tags in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Pick one up today while supplies last to show off your out of this world good taste.

Was this enough to convert you to a believer?

Introducing the New Munzee StarterPak!

Are you looking to refresh your deploys and get your hands on some rare and beneficial game pieces? Are you a new player seeking to dive right into everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt? We have some great news, because our Munzee StarterPak has officially been updated in the Freeze Tag Online Store to offer players a whole host of munzees just waiting to be deployed!

This ALL NEW StarterPak is available NOW, and all players are able to purchase one a year. Get yours today!

The freshly updated Munzee StarterPak features a variety of different stickers, as well as a Munzee Logo Decal that you can show off to all of your friends. In addition to the decal sticker, each StarterPak will include the following munzees:

We’ve put together a video breaking down what all you get in the new StarterPak! Check it out below:

The Throwback Munzee represents the “Official Game Piece” of Munzee, offering a nicely sized sticker for your deploying pleasure. Each StarterPak will contain one (1) Throwback Munzee.

The Butterfly Evolutions are rare physical munzees that could previously only be acquired through MunzPak subscriptions. Each Butterfly Evolution Munzee is equipped with special features. This Evolution Munzee evolves to five stages, with its final stage allowing it to bounce to other munzees around the world. Each StarterPak will contain one (1) Butterfly Evolution Munzee.

The Diamond Munzee is a special type that is worth more points than a regular greenie and part of the Family Jewels line of munzees. Each StarterPak will contain one (1) Diamond Munzee.

The Prize Wheel Munzee is a popular game piece from the Gaming line of munzees. When a Prize Wheel Munzee is capped there is a chance of winning munzee credits and points for both the capper and the owner. Each StarterPak will contain one (1) Prize Wheel Munzee.

The Mystery Munzee is a classic game piece that randomizes the points both the capper and owner earn each time. Each StarterPak will contain one (1) Mystery Munzee.

Munzee Generic Codes, often referred to by players as “greenies,” are important base game pieces that can be magnetized with Munzee Magnets to draw special bouncing icons. Deploying greenies near where you live or work will help attract special munzees to you so that you won’t have to travel far for extra points. Each StarterPak will contain four (4) Generic Coded stickers.

Lastly, the StarterPak will also contain a bonus Aquamarine Munzee credit! This munzee, like the Diamond, is a member of the Family Jewels that awards more points than the greenie. To deploy this special credit, you will first have to start with a generic sticker. After scanning the sticker, you are given the option to “Make It Special!” where you can choose the Aquamarine from a list of credits.

The new logo decal and all nine of these various physical munzees (plus the bonus credit!) can be yours today! Whether you’re a new player or a veteran, you can order one StarterPak a year from the Freeze Tag Online Store for only $10. If you’re a new player, keep an eye on your email for a special discount code to get your StarterPak for FREE as part of a limited time offer! All orders received throughout the week will ship within 1-2 business days after your purchase.

Starting now you can also earn an all new badge for purchasing a StarterPak, similar to the MunzPak badges. This will not be a retroactive badge, so you’ll need to purchase the NEW StarterPak in order to earn it.

You can learn about the benefits and advantages of each type of munzee HERE. We are also updating our Help Guide to provide comprehensive breakdowns of different munzee types and aspects of gameplay, including player tips.

Munzee on!

Booster Credit and QRew Updates!

A new Munzee app update has just been released, featuring new capabilities for Booster Credits and QRew! This over the air update is now live, so check it out!

Booster Credits

Since our Urban Fit Munzee launched three weeks ago, players have been earning special Physical Deploy Booster Credits each time they cap/deploy 15 Urban Fit Munzees within a MHQ 24-hour day. While these credits have been available to be earned, they have not been able to be used. Today we are happy to announce the much-anticipated Booster Credit update that enables players to put their hard-earned credits to use!

That’s right, you are able to become Positively Charged at a time of your own choosing! To learn how to use the Booster Credit, we put together the helpful video below. For all information about Munzee Booster Credits, you can also check out our Booster Credit Help Guide article.

To activate a Booster Credit, first go to your player profile. You will find your available Booster Credits under the “Inventory” tab. Click on the Booster Credit you would like to use. Whenever you’re ready, click the “Activate” button to start.

We understand how valuable map space is, so if you’d prefer to hide the Booster timer you can do so on the Booster Credit page. To hide the timer, simply click on the icon to go back to the Booster Credit page, and toggle the switch to remove the timer from the map. Keep in mind that you can always show the timer again by going back to the Booster Credits page through the Inventory section in the Profile. The page will also show you how many credits you have in stock.

As a reminder, the Physical Deploy Booster Credit allows you to become “positively charged” and receive double points on all physical deploys for the next 120 minutes. That includes ALL types of physical munzees, PLUS you get to choose when to activate the Physical Deploy Booster! This special feature will allow you to time the perfect deploy streak to really multiply your points. AND…as of right now, Hadavale captures will give a booster credit instead of instantly making your account become positively charged!

There’s nothing like a double points opportunity to kickstart a happy weekend! You also might notice that some new types of Booster Credits are coming soon… so keep patient!

QRew:

The latest update also gives players who have earned the QRew title the ability to replace munzees. To avoid confusion, QRew titles have been updated for clarity. A mini-map has also been added to the compass screen, which only displays the munzee you currently have selected.

We hope all of these updates are met with player satisfaction! We are constantly working on advancing the game to make it as fun and up to date as possible. Stay tuned for more updates and announcements! There are lots of exciting projects on the horizon that we can’t wait to share!

Munzee on!

Munzee Updates! New Motel Icon, Store Sale, & Easter Personal Tag

Happy Thursday from MHQ! We have several general updates to share, starting with our brand new Munzee Motel icon artwork. Our updated Motel icon will now appear as follows:

This new redesign better aligns with the other Destination Munzees, so we hope this new eye-catching design will help you check-in more frequently! To celebrate the new icon, we are holding a “Renovation Sale” in the Freeze Tag Online Store for our Munzee Motels, Munzee Hotels, and Munzee Timeshares. (It’s now more convenient than ever to book one of them for your next vacation!) The credits for these munzees will be 20% off, while all Hotel stickers will be 40% off starting at 15:00 MHQ time today and lasting until Monday (4/22) at 10:00 MHQ time. Shop our Physical Destinations collection for easy sale access! Virtual Resorts are not currently discounted, but you can pick those up HERE as well.

And that’s not all! In the spirit of ZEEster, our Easter Personal tags will also be available for purchase from the Freeze Tag Online Store today at 15:00 MHQ time. The tag’s adorable Hatched ZEEster Egg artwork will appear as follows:

Will the ZEEster Bunny be hopping by your house this year? He just might if there are enough munzees in the area to cap!

Holiday Goodies are on the Horizon with ZEEster Eggs!

Update: All ZEEster Eggs and Hatched Eggs count as MOBs (Munzee Owned Bouncers.) 

Will the Easter Bunny be hopping to your house this year? Even if you’re not expecting a visit from this furry friend, you can still fill up your Easter basket with plenty of treats. However, these goodies aren’t of the edible variety— but that doesn’t mean that they won’t satisfy! The Munzee ZEEster Eggs will launch on April 17 at 00:01 MHQ time and stay on the map until April 28 at 22:22 MHQ time for quadruple the holiday fun!

ZEEster Eggs

How do you like your eggs cooked? Scrambled? Over easy? With a side of points? (We’ll have the last option!) The ZEEster Eggs will introduce four new Munzee specials to the game, including the physical Blue Egg, Red Egg, and Yellow Egg, as well as the virtual White Egg. Worried about being able to cap one? All four Eggs can be magnetized. Be sure to pick up your Virtual Magnets and Physical Magnets from the Freeze Tag Online Store to increase your capping chances!

The ZEEster Egg specials will hit the map April 17 at midnight MHQ time and enjoy a comfortable run until April 28. In that time span, the Eggs will bounce around every 6 hours or when captured. There will be a set number of each Egg landing on the map, with 419 White Eggs, 140 of both Blue and Red eggs, and 139 Yellow Eggs.

The Eggs will not be blastable, but you CAN capture on your “owned” munzees or any previously capped munzee. You can access this special under the Premium “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The physical and virtual specials will land on greenies and all color virtuals, respectively.

Points

  • White Egg: split 60 points with a minimum of 15 for Capture and Host PLUS receive 1 PinPoint (What’s that?!)
  • Blue/Red/Yellow Egg: split 75 points with a minimum of 17 for Capture and Host PLUS receive 1 PinPoint
  • Hatched Eggs (all colors): Cap 100 points PLUS receive 5 PinPoints, No CapOn points

Hatched Eggs

Wait, did the points include Hatched Eggs?! We almost forgot to mention, there is a fair chance that capturing a ZEEster Egg will lead to a Scatter in the form of Hatched Eggs!

There is a chance upon capturing a physical Egg or a virtual Egg that a Hatched Egg will be caused to scatter. Capturing the White Egg has the possibility for a Hatched White Egg to scatter within 2,000 feet as a new virtual, similar to how the Feather Munzee works. Upon capturing one of the physical Eggs, the corresponding Red/Blue/Yellow Hatched Egg has the chance to scatter within 1,400 feet as a new virtual. The capture radius will be 300 feet for the Hatched Egg scatters. They will not be blastable OR have magnet attraction.

Points

  • Hatched Eggs (all colors): Cap 100 points PLUS receive 5 PinPoints, No CapOn points

Badges

That’s not all the fun to be had! In addition to our ZEEster Eggs and Hatched Eggs, there will also be a line of badges associated with the specials. Be sure to capture lots of different combinations of both Egg and Hatched Egg colors, because there are a total of five badges you can earn! Since we’re celebrating a holiday, we’ll give you a sneak peak of the first badge in the series below:

The ZEEster Bunny– Capture 1 ZEEster Egg Special of any kind.

Remember, April is all about fitness, so lace up your shoes and get out there for some hunting! Hopefully our latest specials will give you that extra initiative to get moving. Are you ready to have some early Easter fun?

Happy Hunting (and Happy Holidays!) and Munzee on!

P.S. Thanks to Robbie and the WallaBee team for sharing more amazing art and putting a Munzee spin on it for these specials!

Recycling Program Revamped with QRew and QRewzee Launches!

Many Munzee players are already familiar with ZeeQRew, an elite program that is composed of players who have shown a dedication to growing the game of Munzee. They also replace missing munzees in order to assist in gameplay upkeep. In line with our active initiative, we are excited to announce a new type of Munzee to replace the old recycling program, as well as a new team of helpful players. It’s time to welcome the launch of the QRewzee Munzee and the addition of the brand new QRew team to the game!

QRew

With the game growing every day, we decided that even a crew as talented as ZeeQRew could use some extra cleanup help. That’s where QRew comes into play, a brand new title and duty that some of you might have already seen assigned to your game profiles. This new group of players can be thought of as “ZeeQRew Jr.” It’s an introductory level for those of you that are still working to achieve full ZeeQRew status.

Just like ZeeQRew has its own list of requirements, there are specific requirements for joining QRew. In order to become a member of QRew, you have to be a Premium MemberThe additional requirements for making QRew are as follows:

  • Have at least 100 deploys of any type AND
  • Have at least 1,000 captures of any type AND
  • Have at least 1 cap and 1 deploy in the last 14 days

If you are one of the players who is currently eligible for QRew, you will notice a new title on your profile! Exactly like ZeeQRew, QRew status is earned or revoked at 00:01 MHQ time on the 1st and 15th of each month if requirements are met.

If the requirements are met on these dates, the player will earn or retain the ZeeQRew or QRew title. If the requirements are not met, the title will be removed from any current ZeeQRew or QRew players, BUT it may be re-earned at the next checkpoint. Keep in mind that since the QRew requirements are not as steep as ZeeQRew, it’s also possible for a player to grow from QRew to ZeeQRew. However, if you lose ZeeQRew you are nothing (but you have the chance to regain your status)!

The rewards for QRew are as follows:

  • QRew title in app & online
  • The ability to replace any physical Munzee, regardless of owner, using a generic sticker*

Although the title has already been awarded, the ability for QRew members to replace munzees will be available in a V4 app update coming very soon! There will be no badge, discount, or unique merchandise associated with QRew. Players must continue to grow and become ZeeQRew to earn added rewards. However, QRew isn’t the only update to the former Munzee recycling program…

QRewzee

Along with the launch of QRew, we are happy to announce a new type of munzee to replace the former Recycle Munzee. All QRew and ZeeQRew members will see this icon on the map for the following physical Munzee types which have had no activity on them in the last 365 days. These munzees include:

  • All Physical Jewels
  • Physical Clan Weapons
  • Greenies
  • Regular (Blue) Mysteries and Physical Elemental Mysteries including Fire, Earth, Water, and Ice
  • Premium Munzees

The new icons will only appear on designated QRewsdays. Each month a schedule will be announced to designate when QRewsdays will occur, similar to how our monthly Flat Friends schedules work**. Capture of the QRewzee Munzee will award 100 points and the icon. There will be 10 CapOn points. You CAN capture a QRewzee Munzee on your own munzee or a previously captured munzee.

Points

  • Capture: 100 points
  • CapOn: 10 points

To see the QRewzee Munzees, look on the physical “Others” filter and the new QRewzee filter under premium options to “Only show these types.” Please note that players will only be able to specifically filter QRewzees in v4 of the Munzee app.

There will also be a line of hidden badges associated with capture of the QRewzee Munzees. The first in the series will appear as follows:

QRew Your Part!- Capture 1 QRewzee Munzee

Without the diligence of our elite group of players, Munzee wouldn’t be the same! Thanks to all ZeeQRew members for their past gameplay upkeep and hope the new QRewzee points will be an incentive to keep it up. We appreciate all players that take the time and opportunity to grow the map and make Munzee better for all! We are excited to launch QRew and see more players get involved in upkeep and maintenance!

Munzee on!

**April QRewsdays will be:

April 16 – 10:00 to April 18 – 23:59
April 21 – 00:01 to April 24 – 23:59
April 26 – 00:01 to April 29 – 23:59

Update! Swap-Ability Made Available for Certain Physicals!

Do you have an overwhelming amount of munzee credits? What if you had the ability to use a credit to “swap” or “replace from a distance” certain munzees? What if this was no longer a “what if” question, but a reality? Well, starting today at 15:00 MHQ time, you will indeed have the opportunity to swap a number of currently deployed physical munzees with a credit you already have!

Before we explain, let’s tell you WHY for those who don’t like to read to the bottom of blog posts! 😉

  • Refresh the physical map in any area you choose without needing to archive first and wait 7 days
  • Use credits you have accumulated but don’t have a good use for
  • Earn a new deploy for the day
  • Earn more captures from the locals in any area you refresh (there will be much rejoicing!)
  • Keep the CapOns flowing in places with large groups of regular players

And now the details for those who care to read on (we recommend you do). Any currently deployed physical munzee of the types below, that already contain a generic code, will now be swappable! There are two options for swapping a munzee: swapping like for like or choosing between a field of options. The ability has been indicated below. As always, you can shop for all of your Munzee needs at the Freeze Tag Online Store. Just remember that what’s in stock is constantly rotating, but to make things easy, you can access the available “Swap-Ability Collection” here!

Ability to Swap Like for Like:

  • Motel Munzee  (only able to swap a new Motel credit)
  • Hotel Munzee  (only able to swap a new Hotel credit)

This means that you are able to swap out any currently deployed physical Motel Munzee with a brand new Motel Munzee credit, or any currently deployed physical Hotel Munzee with a brand new Hotel Munzee credit. You can shop the Destination Munzee collection to pick up Motel and Hotel credits as needed.

Ability to Swap Within List:

This means that players can swap any currently deployed physical munzee on the list with any one of the physical munzee options on the list. For example, you can swap a currently deployed Briefcase Munzee with a new Scatter Munzee credit or any existing Jewel Munzee with any Clan Weapon Munzee credit. A mace for a diamond, an RPS becomes a premium, a ruby for a Hammer, etc.! The choice is yours!

How to Swap

This new feature for certain physical munzees is available online only. Only munzees with a generic code can be swapped. The first thing you will need to do to swap out physical munzees is to log into your munzee account.

One you’ve logged in, select the “Deployed” button/tab.

This will bring you to a list of all the munzees that you have deployed. Select which munzee you wish to swap out by clicking on the munzee name. Maybe even use the “filter by type” option to select a munzee type that qualifies for the swap.

Once you click on the munzee, you will be presented with the following options. In order to swap out your physical munzees, select the “Edit Munzee” option.

Under the section “Replace Missing Munzee,” you will notice a new option to “Swap Out Munzee.” Selecting this option will allow you to choose which type of munzee you will be swapping to.

You can then select which type of munzee you wish to swap for. The available options have been indicated earlier in this blog post. Keep in mind that Hotels and Motels can only be swapped like for like.

Be sure to verify which munzees you want to swap. Confirming the swap will archive the original munzee* and deploy a brand new munzee of the type you have selected. The new munzee will have the same name and notes so update those if necessary.

Why Swap?

Currently players are already able to make certain virtual swaps. Many virtual types can be swapped, with the exception of Resort Munzees, Virtual Emerald Munzees, Virtual Trail Munzees, Air Mystery Munzees, and Temporary Virtual Munzees. That means that the following virtual munzees can be swapped.

  • Amethyst Munzees
  • Sapphire Munzees
  • Virtual Munzees
  • Surprise Munzees
  • All Flats Munzees
  • Crossbow Munzees
  • Catapult Munzees
  • Night Vision Goggles Munzees

This brand new “swap-ability” feature for certain physicals allows players to do several things which we think:

  • Refresh the physical map in any area you choose without needing to archive first and wait 7 days
  • Use credits you have accumulated but don’t have a good use for
  • Earn a new deploy for the day
  • Earn more captures from the locals in any area you refresh (there will be much rejoicing!)
  • Keep the CapOns flowing in places with large groups of regular players

What do you think of this latest gameplay ability? Do you already have some munzee swaps in mind? Interested in an example from Rob’s account? You can see he updated the notes to remember the previous deploy.

Get creative, and Munzee on!

*Any munzee archived via the Swap feature will not lose points or deploy day credit (for streak purposes) UNLESS it has 0 caps.
