New App Update and An Attractive Magnet Weekend Celebration!

We’re excited to announce that the latest Munzee update is officially live! The newest over-the-air update streamlines Munzee Magnet activation, and includes a number of new Deploy Modes for the different layers of the map!

You can find more details regarding the updates below, but first some more fun news! In celebration of the Magnet update we’re hosting a Magnet Weekend for everyone around the world!

Magnet Weekend Celebration

Starting at 00:01 MHQ on Saturday July 20, 2019 all physical and virtual Munzee Magnets will attract up to five bouncing munzees for 2 hours! This celebration will end Sunday July 21, 2019 at 23:59 MHQ. This means your Magnets are even more powerful just in time for 8zees Birthday events for the weekend, including our California Birthday Bash! To sweeten the pot all Premium Munzee members will also be awarded one free physical Munzee Magnet on Saturday as well! So if you’re not Premium hurry and join before 00:01 MHQ tomorrow!

We also have a special deal on Magnets in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Although players are limited to 10 magnets of each type every 10 days, you can now purchase physical and virtual Magnet 5 Packs for a limited amount of time! From now until Monday, July 22 at 10:00 MHQ five packs of Magnets are available for $4.50. There is a limit of 2 of each Magnet pack per customer, which means you can get an additional 10 of each Magnet type for this weekend, even if you’ve already purchased your ten for this time frame!

Munzee Magnet Update

It’s now easier than ever to Magnetize Munzees in the app! Simply go to the Details page for the Greenie or Virtual you want to Magnetize and you’ll see a bright red “Magnetize” button. This button will only show on munzees that can be Magnetized, so no more guessing and checking! When you go to Magnetize a munzee you’ll also be able to see how many Magnets you have in stock from a pop-up confirmation message.

Magnetizing munzees is even easier!

Magnetizing munzees is even easier!

You can learn about how to Magnetize munzees on the Munzee Help Guide, as well as by watching the video below!

Deploy Layers & Filters Update

Following the Munzee Map Split last month, we’re excited to announce that additional filters have been added to separate the different deploy layers in the game. This makes it much easier to tell where you can deploy certain types of munzees!

Each layer will use different colored proximity circles so you can easily tell which types are which:

  • Deploy All Types Mode – all colors, all types
  • Physical Deploy Mode – original red color
  • Virtual Deploy Mode – blue color
  • Flat Deploy Mode – green color
  • Temporary Virtual Deploy Mode – yellow color
  • Event Deploy Mode – pink color (only visible on event accounts

You can access these different deploy modes from the Filters section of the app. To help with all of these different types of munzees we have also given Premium members two additional custom preset filters, for a total of five.

Different map layers are distinguished by different color deploy circles!

We hope these latest updates help make your gameplay experience even easier! Be sure to take advantage of the Magnet Weekend Celebration to help you get Magic 8 Balls, Flat Shuttles, 8 Mates and more. We have lots of other great updates in the works so be sure to stay tuned.

Munzee on!

Play YOUR Way! Map Split and Leaderboard UPDATES!

Did you catch our latest videocast? You can listen to Rob and Matt discussing the new updates HERE! 

Today we have a very special announcement! The Virtual and Physical Maps have officially been separated into two distinct playing areas. The proximity limits for virtual munzees will no longer affect physical deploys, and vice versa. This exciting over-the-air update is live as of the publication of this blog!

Play Your Way

Previously if a virtual was deployed in an area, a physical could not be deployed within its proximity, and vice versa. Now players have the opportunity to expand deploys in their area with even more physical and virtual munzees! Munzee has always been about letting everyone “Play Your Way,” and this latest update will allow players to do just that! You can now choose to focus solely on physical or virtual gameplay, or continue doing both with ease. Customize the filters in your app with easy adjustments to display physical and virtual Munzees however you like!

We have also added a small update to the online maps to allow players to toggle between physical and virtual munzees as well. This will be handy for players deploying virtuals from the online map. Additionally, there is a slight change to the Destination line of munzees. This map split will uncouple proximity checks between Virtual Resorts and Timeshares. Resort proximity will only be blocked by other Resorts (or other virtual types), and Timeshares will only be blocked by other Timeshares, Motels, and Hotels (or other physical types).

To help you fill in all the new spots for deploying, we’re hosting a “Play Your Way Summer Sale” in the Freeze Tag Online Store starting at 15:00 MHQ today! There will be deals on a number of physical and virtual products. It’s also the first day of summer/winter, so blocks of Seasonal Munzees will be on sale, and they have also been added to the PinPoints store! Check out the entire “Play Your Way!” collection HERE when the sale goes live!

Follow The Leader(boards)!

We have another big update alongside the map split— the leaderboards! We now have a variety of different leaderboard options to showcase the skills of different gameplay styles. This new update includes the creation of Virtual and Physical leaderboards, as well as daily, monthly*, and yearly leaderboards for each type. You can see a breakdown of each leaderboard type below, but all leaderboards are accessible from both the web** and mobile app.

On the mobile app, simply toggle the various dropdown menus to see the desired leaderboard. You can choose between different leaderboards for Munzee Type, Points Earned, and Time Period. These new leaderboards are only visible in the latest version of the V4 Munzee app via an over-the-air update. (If you haven’t received it yet, try restarting the Munzee app!)

On the web, simply choose the leaderboard you would like to see from the dropdown menu on the upper righthand side. Once you choose the leaderboard you want to view, you can also toggle “This Month” to show “Last Month” and “This Year” to show “Overall” leaderboards.

To see the Munzee web leaderboards, go HERE.

Split Leaderboards by Munzee Type:

  • All Types
  • Physicals Only
  • Virtuals Only

Split Leaderboards by Points Type:

  • Total Score
  • Captures Only
  • Deploys Only
  • CapOns Only

Split Leaderboards by Time Period:

  • Today (Premium Members Only)
  • Yesterday
  • This Month
  • Last Month
  • This Year
  • Overall

Reap The Rewards!

With new leaderboards also come all new leaderboard badges! With so many different leaderboard types, we plan on continuing to release exclusive badges as the year goes on. To start off, we have new leaderboard badges for the following:

Monthly Leaderboard Badges:

Virtual Daily Leaderboard Badges:

Physical Daily Leaderboard Badges:

The next line of badges, coming soon, will be for Daily Capture, Deploy, and CapOn leaderboards! There are hundreds of different badge possibilities, so always stay tuned for more information!

We hope you all take this opportunity to grow the game to new heights, both around the world and in your own backyard. The time is now to Play Your Way, so get out there and GO!

Munzee on!

*Please note that though “Last Month” leaderboard will show upon launch, players will not earn badges for it until the end of the month.
**Access to the current daily leaderboard is only available to Premium players, so that leaderboard is only accessible via the app. Players can still see yesterday’s daily leaderboard on the web.

Munzee’s Next Update is Ready to Download!

Today we’re happy to announce our latest app update, a build on version 4.1.18, that is meant to improve several aspects of gameplay! In order to reap the benefits of our latest update, you will need to go to your app store and download the latest version of the Munzee app. Please keep in mind that it may take a little bit of time for the latest app version to arrive in your store, so be patient in the meantime!

Many will likely find the most exciting part of the app update to be the improvements to the test scan tool. The test scan tool has been updated as follows:

  • The test scan tool has been updated to show more helpful information. No more confusion about which stickers are what!
    • Each scan now shows the pin image and munzee type name
    • Munzee state is now displayed as: Never Deployed, Undeployed, Deployed by, Archived or Has Been Replaced

Additionally we have went through a number of glitches and common issues and are happy to provide the following fixes:

  • Fix for the “White Screen of Death” issue, which would cause the screen to randomly turn white and require an app restart
  • Fix for scrolling issues on Android, which include the quick deploy list, history list, captured/deployed, etc. lists and the munzee details screen
  • Fix to show owned magnetized munzees on the map again, even if the owned filter is disabled
  • Fix to show correct pin images for rovers that sit on virtual munzees that are owned or have been captured

Lastly, we have made the following two updates to facilitate easier gameplay:

  • Restored landscape mode for iPads
  • Red radius circles remain visible when zooming out far in deploy mode

We hope these updates make your gameplay experience better than ever! Remember that in order to reap the benefits of our latest update, you will need to download the latest version of the app from your app store. Also keep in mind that you can check up on Known Issues and the Version 4.x Update Log on the Help Guide at anytime.

Stay tuned for more updates and announcements! There are many exciting projects on the horizon that we can’t wait to share!

Munzee on!

Enjoy National Scavenger Hunt Day with FOUR New Specials!

Did someone say MOB?! That’s right, we did, and we are here to deliver! It just so happens that May 24 is National Scavenger Hunt Day. Hmm, can you think of any scavenger hunt games that you enjoy playing? It might be a good time for them to offer some specials… maybe in the form of FOUR brand new MOBs (Munzee Owned Bouncers) hitting the map on May 24 at 00:01 MHQ time!

We have an entire week of fun ahead! Prepare for our Scavenger Hunt Day specials arriving at midnight tonight (May 24 at 00:01 MHQ time) and lasting until May 31 at 23:59 MHQ time. If you have patiently been waiting for MOBs for Clan Wars requirements then you’re in luck! UPDATE: MOBs will be counted correctly for clan requirements at midnight tonight! These new specials feature all of the classic tools you’d need on a worldwide scavenger hunt.

Virtual Specials

Plus, you can pick up a bonus badge by capturing at least one of all four! So what are you waiting for?? Get hunting! Oh wait— we have one more bit of information you might want to hear first!

Earn the Treasured Tundra badge by capturing at least one Compass Special!

Are you ready to start shopping?! We hope the National Scavenger Hunt Day specials (and sale!) will invigorate your love for adventure!

Happy hunting, and Munzee on!

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

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!
