Munzee Mistakes: 10 Tips and Tricks for New Players

Welcome to Munzee! Munzee is a complex game, and to make it easier for both new and old players, we have been sharing tips every week on social media with the help of player suggestions. Whether this is your first day or fourth year playing, it’s always helpful to connect with other players in order to hone your hunting skills. 

If you’re in need of some helpful hints, we have compiled together our social media tips that we have been sharing weekly. Consider these tips while playing to avoid the most common Munzee mistakes! If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, these tips might look familiar. 

Tip #1: Use your filters! Make it easier to find specific munzee types by turning different filters off and on! Don’t forget that you can unlock even more filters with a Premium Membership.

Tip #2: Read the notes on munzees. Look under “details” to discover helpful hints that offer tips on where to look. When deploying a munzee at a location that is not obvious, be sure to add descriptive notes. They are always appreciated by players!

Tip #3: When deploying physical munzees, scan the munzee sticker in your hand first, then stick it. This will avoid any issues with attempting to deploy too close to another munzee, so you won’t have to peel off a sticker and relocate it! Once you’ve added the name and description to your deploy, you can re-scan the sticker to verify that it can be capped easily. (Tip courtesy of WiseOldWizard.)

Tip #4: When you first start playing Munzee, try to get the hard to earn badges first, such as the Pi Badges which require an exact number of points capped in a day. Once you start Deploying and earning CapOn points, some badges can be extremely tricky to get. (Tip courtesy of valmie.)

Tip #5: Buying a Premium Membership is worth the extra cost, as you are able to see more of the map area and be more selective with filters if you are in a munzee dense area and only looking for certain types to cap. It also helps because you can choose to not see munzees you’ve already capped or deployed. (Tip courtesy of bumpy.)

Tip #6: Leave some of your neighborhood blank – you never know what new types of munzees MHQ has up their sleeve. You don‘t want to not be able to deploy at least one nearby to keep your neighborhood interesting! (Tip courtesy of granitente.)

Tip #7: For a unique and adventurous Munzee experience, use tree tags to grow the game into the wild. When created with quality materials and deployed correctly, tree tags will likely last longer than stickers on light poles and signs. And you get to hike and enjoy nature while deploying and capping! (Tip courtesy of semipaw.)

Tip #8: Always keep two or three stickers between your phone and the phone case for those emergency replacements. (And to play it extra safe, don’t leave home without a portable phone charger!) (Tip courtesy of wazong.)

Tip #9: Remember that just because you CAN place a physical Munzee somewhere doesn’t mean you should. Consider dangers like traffic and terrain when placing that strategic sticker. Munzees placed in private courtyards and compounds not open to the public will see little action. Finally, remember the forbidden places in the Player Code of Conduct! (Tip courtesy of The8re)

Tip #10: Don’t cap everything at once! If you are doing Clan Wars, you may need to save certain caps in your town for future months. It can be overwhelming, but go slow and steady. Leaving munzees uncapped will also help with maintaining streaks during dry periods. (Tip courtesy of Sprinkman)

Bonus Tip: There are three kinds of bouncers: POBs (Player Owned Bouncers), MOBs (Munzee Owner Bouncers), and TOBs (Team Owned Bouncers.) The distinction is very important for Clan Wars. Attached are a sampling of some MOBs, TOBs, and POBs. You can also read a full listing of all MOBs, POBs, and TOBs here! (Tip courtney of aturner0010)

Munzee Mistakes: 25 General Tips and Helpful Hints

The Munzee community has banded together to bring us 20 capping tips, 20 deploy tips, and last week’s 10 tips for new players. To continue our journey of making Munzee more accessible for our many new players, this week we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of general tips and tricks sent in by some of Munzee’s dedicated players!

Are you a brand new player? Are you a dedicated player browsing the list to learn some new wisdom? (Are you an absolute expert seeing if your tip is featured? 😉) No matter your level of gameplay, there is always something new you can learn since we’re always mixing things up to introduce new adventures, excitement, and specials to everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt!

Here is some general gameplay advice offered by fellow players:

Tip #1: Help fellow players complete Virtual Gardens and Trail Munzees. It helps everyone! (Elisa Angel Reynozo) #GrowTheMap

Tip #2: Always check your filters to make sure you’re not missing anything. (dap217)

Tip #3: Definitely learn how to use the filters to get the best experience. You will need to become a Premium Member to get the better filter range. (mikedee)

Tip #4: Become a Premium Member. The ability to use filters is incredibly helpful. In an instant you can filter out and see hotels/resorts that have rooms. You can filter and see JUST where Mythological Munzees are located near you. Being a Premium Member allows you to do this! (MRSG9064)

Tip #5: When you become a Premium Member, spend some time looking at Statzee. (This is the home of munzee statistics!) There is an amazing amount you can learn by looking at this information closely. (Bungle)

Tip #6: Sign up for monthly MunzPak subscriptions! I love getting my Physical Pak every month, as it gets me out and about in my area! Points makes badges! (Jemma Jones-Hayes)

Tip #7: Go to an event and make lots of new friends! (See the Munzee Events Calendar HERE!) They will be willing to help you with all the questions you have. Remember, no question is too daft (silly) to ask! (Anwsmum)

Tip #8: Go to an Event in the neighbourhood. You are able to meet more experienced players who can give you all kinds of tips. You might even be able to go and Munzee with them to see how they approach things. (Feikjen)

Tip #9: Get in a WhatsApp, Facebook, or online community to share Munzee stuff and just chat amongst each other. Communicating with fellow players is a great way to keep up to date with Munzee and get to know other players. (Human01d)

Tip #10: Watch Facebook, Twitter, and Munzee Blog posts for Munzee Announcements. New Munzee types may mean you need to check your Physical or Virtual FILTERS to see everything. (KernKlan)

Tip #11: If you’re unsure of what a sticker is coded as, test scan it, and then write on the back of the sticker so you don’t forget! (Liam Kearns)

Tip #12: When you’ve completed the new player tutorial, go back and scan that referral code that led you to the game! (Penfold49)

Tip #13: When you are starting out with a fresh area, deploy a “Myth Farm”, a block of Shamrock munzees, a block of Water Mystery munzees, a block of Ice Mystery munzees. That way, you will always have several Myth munzees showing up every day. (MythBait)

Tip #14: When deploying, mix it up a little. A field of Greenies will be more likely to attract players if you add some specials in there. A few jewels, weapons, Destination munzees, and scattering types (Ice Mystery, Fire Mystery, etc.) can help draw a player in. (Jellybean88)

Tip #15: It will take a while and effort, but having ZeeQRew makes capping better, and you won’t miss specials. (GeoTracker7)

Tip #16: If you buy a Personal Munzee, make sure you scan it first to deploy it before letting others scan it! Otherwise, they own it. (Linda Shoemaker)

Tip #17: For deploy requirements, don’t forget that if you cap a Destination munzee (Hotel/Motel/Virtual Resort/Timeshare) that has a vacancy, the room you get counts as a deploy. (Bennycams)

Tip #18: Hold down the “my location button” and it will follow as you walk/drive. (Connor Brown)

Tip #19: For extra fun when deploying physicals, have three Munzee players deploying every 50 feet to make a great Munzee physical power trail! (earthangel)

Tip #20: In cities or areas where walking can be difficult, think about places where a future capper can park. It’s easier to cap when you can park legally and only have a short walk. (Kpr1000)

Tip #21: Think of the long haul. Build your home map to bring the CapOns to you— they will come if you build it well enough! (FrankBroughton)

Tip #22: Along with setting filters, research the area before trips so you don’t get sidetracked and miss the munzees you traveled for by capping everything in sight. (rufnredy)

Tip #23: Name your Virtual Resorts before you ever deploy them. (denali0407)

Tip #24: Deploy as you travel. Name them after the place you’re at. (Pyro1970)

Tip #25: Always take a few munzees along on your trips, and deploy everywhere you go! (Loxmudprincess)

Munzee Mistakes: 10 Things I Wish I Knew When I Was New

For the last few weeks, we have been sharing Munzee Tips to help ease new player transitions into everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt. After sharing 20 tips for both deploying and capping munzees, this week we’re keeping things simple with a short and sweet list of advice that long-time Munzee players wish to offer to the newbies.

Feel free to share these posts with new referrals (and don’t forget to share your referral code)! If you are new to the game and checking out our blog for the first time, welcome to Munzee! Things may seem confusing at first, but there are always plenty of players who are ready to help!

Here is the advice that current players have to offer:

1. The Facebook page Munzee Water Cooler* is a very helpful resource where you won’t be chastised for being a newbie asking questions. It’s filled with very helpful individuals for the most part. You will learn a lot by joining! (Mygalstar)

2. As a new player, build up the area where you live. You can then easily go out quickly to capture the many Bouncers that will land on your deploys. A good mix includes many greenies, a set or two of Elemental Mysteries, and a few Shamrocks. You can then fill in gaps with virtuals, starting with green, then red and black. Nothing beats just walking out of your house and capping some high point Munzees. (Jim Roik)

3. Try to earn the badges that are harder to earn, such as the Repeater and the Pi-badges, in the early days of the game. Very particular badges that include exact numbers will be harder to achieve once you are a regular player. (Norbee97)

4. As soon as possible, start deploying AND capturing at least one Munzee every day. This will let you get the streak badges sooner and get you into the game much more quickly. (malof)

5. Patience is an important tip! As a new player, it takes time to grow your local area, and it takes time to buy/earn munzees to deploy. It’s okay to get a little jealous of the older players and their many CapOns, but don’t worry, it will come in time. And there is a LOT to learn, so be patient with yourself! (Fizzlewizzle)

6. Get online and read about Munzee! The blog will tell you about badges, points, types of munzees, Specials, filters, etc. This helps you understand the game a little quicker. (Read about the different types HERE!) Also wherever you go, open the map and you will cap. (Sandmari)

7. Don’t cap everything in your local area. You never know when you need a quick cap or a certain type to keep a streak alive! This will also be beneficial if you choose to engage in Clan Wars or ZeeOps. (Cceasar)

8. Try to get into a Munzee community. This will help and support you in the game, as well as occasionally understanding the written word from MHQ. For me, the start of socializing within the game was attending an event and starting to talk to the lovely Munzee people. Today I think of them as my (Munzee) friends! (Jorgensen4220)

9. When attending events (or even just capping!), take along a portable battery charger or an iPad. Battery life is important when in a large area or park. (This tip may seem simple, but nothing cuts quite like a dead phone during a capping streak!) (NanaKern)

10. Become a Premium Member. The ability to use filters is incredibly helpful. In an instant you can filter out and see hotel/resorts that have rooms. You can filter and see JUST where myths are located near you. Being a Premium Member allows you to do this! (MRSG9064)

Don’t forget to follow us on  Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay up to date with the latest tips and gameplay updates. We’re also beginning to dust off the Munzee Help Manual, where you can find these Tips and Tricks. To share your Munzee Tip, connect with us on social media or e-mail iloveyou@munzee.com. As always, a big thank you to all players who shared their tips!

Munzee on!

Munzee Mistakes: 20 Capping Tips for New Players

Last week we shared 20 deploy tips brought to you by fellow Munzee players. This week we’re happy to share 20 capping tips also shared by player suggestions. Have any helpful tips that you’d like to share with new players? E-mail us at iloveyou@munzee.com to share your ideas! And be sure to share these blogs with new players, as well as have them scan your referral code.

This article’s theme is capping tips! “Capture,” “Cap,” or “Capping” are all terms we use for earning points from a munzee, which is either done by scanning a QR code on a Physical Munzee or by standing within the appropriate circumference to capture a Virtual Munzee. Remember you can purchase munzees for other players to capture, which will allow you to earn “CapOn” points, in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

Here is what fellow players had to say about capping mistakes, tips, and tricks:

Tip #1: Always read the details of the munzee, including the about screen, history, and even the photos screen. These areas will usually have helpful information about the specific munzee that you’re trying to capture. (dgas71)

Tip #2: Take a black pen with you. It might help if you colour in the large black squares in the QR code if you can’t scan an old munzee! (Appeltje32)

Tip #3: Create a “Munzee bag” with wipes (munzees stick better in clean spots), extra munzees to deploy, water, a charging device, selfie stick, etc. You can carry this bag around with you while capping to always have the essential on hand. (thefoods)

Tip #4: For those living in areas that get a lot of snow, get a selfie stick. Selfie sticks will help you reach those munzees that are four feet away without having to climb through snow banks. It also helps you reach munzees deployed a little to high to reach. (SpiritTree)

Tip #5: In the winter months, invest in either electronic friendly gloves or a cheep pack of styluses to keep you from having to take your gloves off while capping. (Geodude)

Tip #6: Be prepared with water, sunscreen, generics, and referral cards before you set off to cap! (Jellybean88)

Tip #7: When Munzeeing, always remember to “slip, slop, slap” (wear plenty of sunblock) when playing during the daylight hours. You’ll regret it if you don’t and you end up sunburnt. (prmarks1391)

Tip #8: When walking and capping, consider wearing a safety vest. Not only do you look safe, but it will also make it appear as though you belong where you are. This will help it look less suspicious when you are capping random objects. (godspeed1074)

Tip #9: Carry alcohol prep pads with you while capping. They work great to get recently painted-over munzees clean so you can cap them. (TK7464)

Tip #10: If your GPS doesn’t show the position where you are and it isn’t refreshing, start another GPS app such as GPS Status. If that still doesn’t help, kill the app and start again. ( GeoLog81)

Tip #11: Invest in a Premium Membership! It really helps with captures. (newbee)

Tip #12: When capping, deploy a munzee near your car so that you can find it when you are done. Sometimes your munzee nose can lead you further and further away from where you started. (Godspeed1074)

Tip #13: Always carry a backup battery or charger, and make sure your phone is fully charged. (snakelips)

Tip #14: When you intentionally drive to an area to spend time capping Munzees, park near a munzee if possible, but don’t cap it until you are ready to leave. Use that pin to keep track of where you parked your vehicle (especially if you are doing a clean sweep of munzees). Knowing how far you’ve wandered from the munzee you parked near will allow you to estimate how long it will take to get back to your car! (Anitaz)

Tip #15: If you can’t reach a munzee, use the zoom (pinch out) to magnify the image a bit. (thefoods)

Tip #16: Hold down on the globe to realign the map so north is up! (danielle41101)

Tip #17: Use the satellite view on the map! It can give hints as to what light pole, sign, fence post. etc. the munzee is deployed at. This is very helpful if there are only vague hints provided. (Buckeyecacher111)

Tip #18: If you don’t see the munzee right at the listed coordinates, check some other locations nearby. Perhaps the hint is incorrect; i.e. the munzee is really on a green box, but the hint said “LP” for lamp post instead. There may be several of the hint all clustered together, so be sure to check them all. (5Star)

Tip #19: Remember to refresh the map if you scan any Elemental munzees. This is not the end of the fun! A new bonuses munzee has just appeared in your area! (Lumen)

Tip #20: Plan road trips so you can munzees along the highway. This makes the trip go a lot faster! However, don’t drive and cap! (Bowlr)

For more Munzee Tips, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and keep a lookout on the updates we’re doing on the Munzee Help Manual. A big thanks goes out to all players who shared their tips! Munzee may be complex, but there are always players ready to help decipher everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt.

Munzee on!

Munzee Mistakes: 20 Deploy Tips For New Players!

As followers of our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram know, we have been sharing Munzee Tips to help ease new player transitions into everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt. Along with our social media tips, we decided to release blogs for the next several weeks containing different categories of gameplay tips as suggested by players. Feel free to share these posts with new referrals (and don’t forget to share your referral code)! If you are new to the game and checking out our blog for the first time, welcome to Munzee!

This article’s theme is Deploy tips! Deploying is the term we use when you put out your own munzees for others to capture. Remember you can purchase munzees to deploy in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

Read what fellow players had to say about how to best deploy your munzees:

Deploy Tips and Tricks

Tip #1: When deploying a physical Munzee, first deploy it, then stick it to the object. So if you can’t place the Munzee at your location, then you can walk to another position without wasting a Munzee. (Felixbongers)

Tip #2: Always carry “greenies” (generic stickers) in your pocket! You never know when you need to replace or find that PERFECT spot. (Thefoods)

Tip #3: When deploying virtuals from a desktop computer, after you deploy, look at the location to make sure you did not deploy too close to another Munzee. (This is especially helpful along roadways.) Move your munzee to allow enough distance between the two for capping. (Calvertcachers)

Tip #4: Remember to write the type of special Munzee on the back when cutting them into individual QR codes, particularly MunzPak ones. Also leave a slight margin around the QR code so that it scans easily (Nuttynan)

Tip #5: When deploying physicals, don’t place them too high, since not all of us are tall and not all of us have selfie sticks! If you want CapOns, short people have to be able to reach them! (BonnieB1)

Tip #6: Think about convenient places where you can deploy your munzees, because of jumping myths/pouches/specials. Choose a place that you and other players can come back to many times in the day and the night, in summer and winter. (BituX)

Tip #7: When deploying in winter, remember foliage will grow in the spring! (Penfold49)

Tip #8: If deploying physicals close to houses or schools, etc. place the Munzee so the capper doesn’t have to point their phone towards the building to prevent them causing suspicion by appearing to take photos of private property. (Tonydev)

Tip #9: Deploy lots of greenies in areas you frequent often… home, work, and convenient points along your regular routes. A high density of “greenies” can attract Mythologicals, so you won’t be driving out of your way to get them. (BAJAclan)

Tip #10: Before deploying, hit the locate button as you stand where you want to deploy. This will get the pin right where you want it. Write in the notes where the munzee is located so others cap it and not mark it as unable to locate. (Kcsilvia)

Tip #11: In the Northern Hemisphere, put your stickers on the north side of an object whenever possible. This will minimize the sun exposure, and they will last longer. This goes for the south in the Southern Hemisphere. (Sabaharr)

Tip #12: Deploy some virtuals nearby and some far away. Spread them out, and help build locally. (levesund)

Tip #13: Build your area quickly to attract bouncing specials…. Deploy, deploy, deploy! (Monrose)

Tip #14: Deploying clusters of one type is very helpful for folks doing ZeeOps & Clan Wars (and will get you caps!). Jewel fields, weapon armories, Prize Wheel clusters, Zodiac groups, Elemental Mystery pits, etc. (denali0407)

Tip #15: When you name your deploys, always use at least three characters to be able to search them later on, and avoid naming several of your deploys identically, for the same reason. (tcguru)

Tip #16: When deploying a physical Destination Munzee, first convert your generic/printed Munzee to the respective destination type at home at the computer (don’t forget to label it on the back). So when you are going to deploy it in the wild, you will get a message in case there is not enough space for it. (halizwein)

Tip #17: Grow your local area with many different types of munzees for bouncers to land on. (McAdies)

Tip #18: Help other players, especially travelers, by deploying virtuals with information about places. For example, restaurants offering free wifi or interesting museums or cool stores. (MariaBr)

Tip #19: When you deploy in a new area, look to see what types of munzees the locals have been deploying in that area. (Violetblonde)

Tip #20: When you deploy a lot of physicals and/or a garden in a heavy traffic area, put some sort of sign up so common folk can download app and see what they normally would be missing. (Wabazz)

We’re also beginning to dust off the Munzee Help Manual, where you can find these Tips and Tricks. To share your Munzee Tip, connect with us on social media or e-mail iloveyou@munzee.com.

A big thank you to everyone in the Munzee community who has shared their tips thus far! New players, rest assured that Munzee is a social game, and there are many knowledgeable players waiting to help you out!

Munzee on!

Feb Badges and March POTM Requirements are Ready to Roll!

Did you spot a new badge earned this week? Our February POTM criteria rewarded over 1,500 players who have captured and/or deployed daily for over a year. A big thanks to all of you for helping us grow the map! You truly are super beasts!

Now that February has concluded, it’s time to move on to our March POTM requirements. Some of you may have already figured out this month’s theme based off our social media posting, but for those of you unaware, March POTM will be selected based off of hksfarm’s Monthly Munzee Giveaway video contest! Our good friend (and super Munzee Support specialist) Daniel Hammock will be rewarding select players this month based off of creativity in his video contest.

Although some winners of the monthly contest are selected at random, others are personally selected by Hammock based on creativity. The creative winners will win the title of POTM in March and the subsequent POTM badge. A number of players have already received the title of March POTM due to Hammock’s selection for February videos. February’s theme was Munzee Love, so we’re showing those winners some love and awarding their badges today! Our winners thus far, as well as their videos, are listed at the end of the article!

The theme for March’s video contest will be videoing a Munzee at a fitness club or gym. How will you show off your creative cardio? The creative portion of the video contest will have open submission up until March 15 at midnight MHQ time, after which Hammock will be choose the final winners for POTM. The monthly contest will continue until the last day of the month if you’d like to still submit your video for the chance to win his giveaway. Just be sure to have your creative video in by 3/15 at 11:59 pm MHQ time to be eligible for March POTM! Don’t forget to stop by the hksfarm’s Facebook page to read about video terms and guidelines.

Remember that anyone who earned the Player Of The Week badge previously IS able to earn the Player Of The Month badge as well! The criteria for Player Of The Month changes, so even if March isn’t your month, there’s always April! Some months will require player nominations, while other months the winners will be chosen based off of stats or other factors.

Now stop sitting around— it’s time to hit the gym and get started on your video submission!

Good luck, and Munzee On!

February GOTM Winners! Featuring Community Stories

Last month we were happy to announce our first ever Garden(s) of the Month winners. We also had the pleasure of recognizing an additional 35 players as Players of the Month for their Virtual Garden buildings skills, as it was our January POTM criteria. This left us with lots of excellent choices to pick from for our February GOTM!

This recognition is meant to honor a variety of our outstanding Virtual Garden builders who have helped to create some of our most memorable gardens. As many of you might recall, GOTM is an extra special award, because all players who deployed in the winning gardens will receive badges as well! Our winning February Virtual Gardens are the Richard Petty Garden, organized by markcase, and the Greer Train Garden, organized by Dlovegrove!

The February Gardens of the Month appear as follows:

The Richard Petty Garden organized by markcase in Greensboro, North Carolina

The Greer Train Garden organized by Dlovegrove in Greer, South Carolina.

All players who deployed in these respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges!

Player Stories 

Not only did we enjoy the design and execution of these gardens, but we also selected this month’s winners based off the stories behind the Virtual Gardens. Munzee is a social game, and we love hearing about how gameplay impacts the community in positive ways!

Richard Petty Garden

The Richard Petty Garden earns the distinction of being one of the oldest Munzee Virtual Gardens in North Carolina. It also earns some major bonus points for being blessed by former NASCAR Driver Richard Petty himself!

Mark Case has been a dedicated Munzee player for rounding seven years, a period of which he has spent designing gardens for a variety of players. According to Case, several years ago he received permission to place a geocache on the property of Petty Enterprise. However, he was later asked to remove it due to property violations from overeager players. Case decided that a Munzee Virtual Garden would be the perfect way to honor Petty without disrupting his land.

With Petty’s permission, Case was permitted by Petty Enterprises to use the “43” logo modeled in the garden. With assistance from Craig Williams, Case was able to finish the coding needed to get the garden structured. On January 12, 2016, the Richard Petty Garden was successfully filled in thanks to player contributions. Case currently keeps a lookout for player holes caused by inactivity in order to preserve the garden. He is happy to share that Petty has officially blessed his titular garden, and the two have met in person!

Greer Train Garden

Our second February GOTM win goes to David Lovegrove, who did the tricky work of putting the spreadsheets together for the Greer Train Garden. This set of mini-gardens runs on the real world Norfolk Southern railroad tracks. The master plan for the design was devised by David’s 12-year-old son, Jonathan, and his best friend Henry. These creative young men also came up with their own logo design for the Virtual Garden.

The group’s first Garden in the Greenville area was the Clemson Tiger Paw. However, as the Garden neared completion, the boys begged David to make a garden for Greer, South Carolina where they were concentrating their growth efforts. David desired to design a manageable size so that it could be more easily filled in. The team came up with the perfect solution: a train garden, where everyone fills up the engine one car at a time! The boys designed a logo and brainstormed ideas for the train garden at school every day as they strove to bring their dreams to fruition.

The young friends came up with the master plan for the Garden, while David worked the technicalities of their vision. The idea behind the design was to fill up the locomotive design and tender before adding on cars one-by-one. This layout allows for continual expansion, while allowing the Garden to appear “finished” even as it continues to grow!

This isn’t the only time David has joined forces with his son in relations to Munzee. The father and son duo enjoy collaborating on fun and funny designs, such as “Skunky” based off of Jonathan’s favorite stuffed animal. Now 14-years-old, Jonathan has discovered his passion and possible career route through his love of Munzee.

Jonathan has a huge desire to “Grow Greer,” his local community, in Munzee. This passion led him to researching websites about the city, cementing his lasting love for Greer. This resulted in the mayor of Greer presenting him with a key to the city. Jonathan has built a small media empire centered around positive things about and happenings in Greer via Facebook, Instagram, and  www.GreerTidbits.com. He even gives tours!

Jonathan Lovegrove, a young Munzee enthusiast. Lovegrove focuses on building the game in his hometown of Greer, South Carolina and spreading positivity.

It’s Almost Time for Munzee Madness 8! Details, Sales and More!

It’s almost that time of the year again— Munzee Madness season! That’s right, Sunny California is gearing up for the longest running player run events of the year.

To celebrate the event, the entire California Freeze Tag office will be attending Munzee Madness 8! Freeze Tag will also be hosting their own event in conjunction with the Munzee Madness player sponsored events in order to provide double the fun! Even if you can’t make it out to California to attend the events in person, there are still ways to participate from home.

Munzee Madness Details 

Mark your calendars and cancel your plans, because MM8 will take place from Friday, March 8 to Saturday, March 9. You can find the full Munzee Madness schedule at the end of the post. There will be a variety of events for all attendees to participate in!

Are you interested in meeting a portion of the team behind everyone’s favorite global scavenger hunt? The entire Freeze Tag California office will be in attendance, including Craig Holland (Cholland86), Mick Donahoo (fixitman), Mari Rann (Kirikat), and Tamara Sahagun (Raan). There will also be a dinner hosted by Freeze Tag on Saturday night in order to allow players more opportunity to interact with the people behind the scenes after a full day of MM8 Road Rally!

There will be a number of special event badges for players to earn throughout the weekend, as well as an abundance of munzees and specials to capture. No sneak peaks this time! If you want to see the new badge designs, you’ll have to earn them in person…

Virtual Garden Fun for All and Sales!

Whether you can attend the event in person or you’ll be celebrating virtually by playing the game at home, there are a variety of ways you can participate in MM8 regardless of location. We are excited to share the designs of four gardens that will surround the event, so that all players worldwide can earn some CapOn points. Choose from the Craig ParkOde to 1849, Officer Down, or Ode to q22q17 to deploy in! You can access a listing of a number of Virtual Gardens in the area here.

Why limit yourself to deploying in one Garden? In celebration of MM8, we decided to release some special offers in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Previously, Virtual Trail Munzee Credits could only be purchased in packs of five that included five Virtual Munzees as well. Now, we are releasing individual Virtual Trail Munzee Credits that includes one Virtual Trail Credit and no Virtual Munzees!

Our Virtual collection will now include Temporary Virtuals, Virtual Trail Munzee Credits (multiple), and the Virtual Trail Munzee Credit (single). All three of these items will be 19 percent off through Monday, February 25 at 10:00 MHQ time. Deploying in one of these Virtual Gardens is a great way to support the events even if you can’t make it in person!

Have you never deployed in a Virtual Garden before? Don’t worry, we’ve made it easy for you! Check out this step-by-step tutorial to help build a Garden today. All you need to do is purchase some Virtuals, maybe a few Color Credits, and select a garden to start deploying in.

If you can make it out to Cali for the weekend, we’d love to see you! And if you can’t, make sure you join in on the fun virtually! Don’t forget you can host your own Munzee Events as well, and it sounds like April would be a good time to start.

Munzee on!
