Time to Serve Up Pakistan Global Grub!

We recently announced that the Global Grub overall capture badges are here to allow you to earn more badges than ever for your Global Grub captures! And today we have a real treat for those who enjoy eating meat, because the Pakistan Global Grub will be joining the map at 15:00 MHQ time!

Eight Pakistan Global Grub specials will be deployed today, joining Global Grub physical specials including Italy, Korea, Greece, and more! They will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured.

Points

  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Players will earn a badge containing a dish of food unique to the flag pin country each time they capture a Global Grub special. Capturing the Pakistan Global Grub will earn you the following savory badge:

Ready for a protein packed feast? If you haven’t tried chicken tandoori yet, then you’re really missing out! This dish involves finely marinated chicken that is covered in yogurt and spices and roasted to tender perfection in a tandoor over. You can often recognize this dish by the vibrant hue of the meat, which is due to the chili power and turmeric used in the marinating process. This savory dish will fall apart in your mouth for a delicious dining experience!

The Global Grub specials will bounce around the globe for the remainder of the year before leaving the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ time. You will have until then to try your luck capturing these very rare specials. Don’t forget that our overall Global Grub capture line allows you more opportunities than ever to earn Global Grub badges!

Stay tuned for more Global Grub releases in the future!

Munzee on!

Guess Who’s Getting Married?! Engagement Specials!

Impending nuptials mean one thing in the the world of Munzee! Okay, maybe two things— a joyous celebration of love AND, more importantly (😉), new Munzee specials!! After witnessing Louise and the InternationElles accomplish amazing feats for females in sports, Rob popped the question, and now we’re popping some specials onto the map today at 15:00 MHQ time time to celebrate Rob and Louise!

The She Said YES Munzee is a special physical and virtual Munzee Owned Bouncer that will bounce to Flat Robs, Flat Lous, Diamonds, Greenies, and Pink Virtuals every 8 hours or when capped. There will be 2,019 of these special Munzees on the map to celebrate a very historic year for Rob and Louise! The specials will remain on the map until August 23 at 23:59 MHQ time.

Points

  • Capture: 42
  • Host: 25

Landing Pads

This special is NOT blastable, because you have to travel the distance to find love! 🥰 The capture radius will be 500 feet from all Virtuals. You can find this special by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. All activity on Flat Lou, Flat Rob, and Diamonds will be worth DOUBLE POINTS during the duration of this special!

Badges

As an added bonus, there will be one badge to earn for capturing the She Said YES special. The badge will appear as follows:

A big congratulations to Rob and Louise! We wonder what specials we’ll have to come up with when they officially tie the knot…

Munzee on!

Qixi Festival Means Munzee Store Celebration!

August 7 marks the annual Qixi Festival, also known as the Qiqiao Festival, which is a traditional Chinese festival that celebrates the mythological romance of the cowherd and weaver maid. Due to its romantic nature, Qixi Festival is known colloquially as “Chinese Valentine’s Day.” Here at Munzee, we will be celebrating this year’s Qixi Festival by putting several attractive offers on the table for players!

Personal Tag

Who doesn’t want another day to celebrate love?! Our brand new Chinese Valentine’s Day Personal Tags are full of warm feelings and ready to be purchased for you or yours truly! You can pick you Personal Tag up for $10 from the Freeze Tag Online Store starting at 10:00 MHQ time today. Check out the lovely design:

Zodiac Grab Bag

To celebrate the festival, we’ll also be putting a discount on the current Zodiac Munzee Grab Bag. Qixi is the festival of double 7’s, so we decided to offer a discount of 14% for the Grab Bags! Where do the 7’s come from? The festival falls on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month of the Chinese calendar. You can read more about the history and customs of the celebrations of the festival HERE!

Chinese Zodiac Set

It might be the festival of double 7’s, but good things are said to come in 3’s, so we’re happy to announce a final fun offer! The complete set of Chinese Zodiac Munzees will now be on sale for the first time ever! Previously made available exclusively through past MunzPak subscriptions, you can now purchase the entire set in the Freeze Tag Online Store at the discounted price of $20.64! (Which is 14% off the normal price of $24.)

Whether or not the Qixi Festival was something on your radar, use this lovely day as an excuse to be with the ones you love! And as an added bonus, play the game you love!

QRazy Update! Permanent 8 Ball Marks Munzee Milestone

Things got pretty QRazy when we challenged the Munzee community to help us reach 8,888,888 deploys by the end of July. Since everyone joined forces to complete this record feat with time to spare, we decided to add a little something special to the map to mark this monumental accomplishment! Please welcome the Permanent Magic 8 Ball Munzee to the map!

Challenge Completed!

We gave players the entire month of July to knock out the QRazy 8’s Deploy Challenge, but the 8,888,888th munzee was officially deployed on July 21 at 01:37:31. This very special munzee was a Crossbow deployed by Tomppa71 to officially complete the community challenge. This Munzee will now forever be a permanent Magic 8 Ball Munzee, which will work just like the specials*! You can view its location HERE!

To view this QRazy awesome special munzee, you will need to turn on your Tourism filter.

QRazy 8’s Prizes

In addition to the permanent 8 Ball, all players who deployed at least 8 munzees through the month of July have been awarded 1 Virtual, 1 Virtual Color Credit, 1 Urban Fit credit, 1 Physical Capture 2x Booster, and the limited edition QRazy 8’s badge today! This special badge appears as follows:

Thank you for all who helped make our QRzy 8’s challenge possible! There’s no community quite like ours, and we can’t wait to see what awesome things we accomplish together in the future!

Munzee on!

*Magic 8 Ball Specials originally awarded 19 CapOn points, but Crossbows award 20 CapOn points. To make this permanent 8 Ball really special, the CapOn points for this munzee have been increased to 40 points! Congrats Tomppa17!

Latest Evolution Prepares to Leap onto the Map!

While some might believe that a frog’s favorite game is croak-et, their game of choice is in fact Munzee! So we decided, what better way to celebrate our amphibian friends than with their own Evolution Munzees? Starting August 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, our brand new Frog Evolutions will be made available through the August MunzPak Subscriptions!

The latest Evolution Munzee will only be available in Physical MunzPak Subscriptions, sold in the Freeze Tag Online Store. However, keep in mind that if any MunzPak orders are placed before August 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, players will be receiving the July MunzPak. The Frog Evolution is a combination of Physicals and Virtuals, with Stages 1-4 bouncing to Physical Munzees and Stage 5 bouncing to Virtual and Physical Munzees.

The 5 stages of the Frog Evolution are as follows:

  • Stage 1: Frog Egg
  • Stage 2: Tadpole
  • Stage 3: Pollywog
  • Stage 4: Froglet
  • Stage 5: Frog (3 Variants)

The stage timeline of the Frog Evolutions will match that of the Butterfly Evolution. The stages will be as follows:

  • Stage 1 to Stage 2: after 4 days
  • Stage 2 to Stage 3: after 14 days
  • Stage 3 to Stage 4: after 10 days
  • Stage 4 to Stage 5: permanent until Reset to stage one

Once the Frog Evolution reaches Stage 4, a temporary POB will be launched. The Pollywog will become the Froglet and remain in place, while the Frog variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.” Once the Frog Evolution reaches Stage 5, it will stay in place for 8 hours or when captured, and will not be able to be nudged. Once 10 captures or 42 days have elapsed for Stage 5, the Frog will be archived.

The first four stages of the Frog Evolutions will be the same for all players. However, Stage 5 will have the option of emerging as one of three different frog species (the green Tree Frog, blue Poison Dart Frog, or red Tomato Frog) which can bounce to both Physicals and Virtuals. Like the Flower Evolutions, the chance of the Frog Evolution evolving to one of the 3 types changes every time it is reset with the Evolution Reset Credit.

Purchasing the reset credit will set your Evolution back to Stage 1, for a chance for the Frog to evolve to a different species at Stage 5. Although you cannot capture a reset if you have already captured the original, you CAN capture the final level of a reset if it evolves to a different color than your first capture. An easy way to know is, if you see it on the map you can capture it!

Please note that although the first four stages for each are the same, they will count as different special capture icons. Like all Player Owned Bouncers (POBs), the Frog Evolution will be available for multi-capture only as the Level 5 Frog.

The points for the Frog Evolution will be as same as the Butterfly Evolution, with 100 points awarded per Stage 1 deploy.

Points

  • Stage 1: Cap: 50, CapOn: 30
  • Stage 2: Cap: 40, CapOn: 20
  • Stage 3: Cap: 45, CapOn: 25
  • Stage 4: Cap: 40, CapOn: 30
  • Stage 4: Cap: 150, CapOn: 50, Host CapOn: 50

Just like real life frogs, the Frog Evolution Munzee sometimes hops to dangerous areas including predator filled waters, and high-speed roadways! Bouncing Frog Evos will be attracted to the following landing pads:

  • Stages 1-3 of Shark
  • Stages 1-3 Submarine Evos
  • Stage 1-3 of Safari Bus Evos
  • Stage 3 only for Muscle Car
  • Earth Mystery
  • Water Mystery
  • Trail Stage One
  • Greenies
  • *Green Colored Virtuals

The Frog Evolution will adhere to normal proximity rules. Stage 1 deploys must be at least 50 feet from any other physical type and 150 feet from your own physical munzees. It will have a normal physical capture radius of 300 feet for Stages 1-4, and a capture radius of 500 feet for Stage 5.

Stage 5 of the Frog Evos will be attracted to Munzee Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on Green Virtuals. They are NOT blastable. To access the Frog Evolution Munzees, turn on your “Evolution” and “All Expiring Specials” filters. The Frog Evolutions will count toward Evolution Capture and Deploy badges.

The full contents of the August MuzPak Subscriptions will be revealed tomorrow. We hope this latest Evolution has you jumping for joy in the meantime! 🐸

Munzee on!

*Green Colored Virtuals include: 

  • VIRTUAL SEA GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GRANNY SMITH APPLE MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL FOREST GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL ASPARAGUS MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL OLIVE GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL YELLOW GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GREEN YELLOW MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL SPRING GREEN MUNZEES

July POTM and August POTM Requirements!

July has been a QRazy month, but when we say QRazy, we mean QRazy awesome! We challenged players to help us reach 8,888,888 deploys before the conclusion of the month, and the Munzee community joined forces to complete the QRazy 8’s Deploy Challenge by July 19! That means in addition to the July POTM badge, qualifying players can enjoy their QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge prizes!

July POTM

Since July was Munzee’s birthday month, we wanted to celebrate a wide variety of players who help contribute to growing the game! All “Determined Deployers” who have deployed at least 16 munzees throughout July (not including socials and personals) will be awarded the special July POTM badge on August 1:

The July POTM badge is a special badge unique from previous POTM badges. This is a brand new badge that any player, regardless of previous POTM wins, is able to earn. Remember, there is still a day and a half left to finish your deploys before July ends in order to earn the badge!

QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge

In addition to the special July POTM badge, all July POTM winners also qualify for the QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge prizes! All players who deployed at least 8 munzees in the month of July will be awarded 1 Virtual, 1 Virtual Color Credit, 1 Urban Fit credit, 1 Physical Capture 2x Booster, and the limited edition QRazy 8’s badge on August 1! Check out the awesome badge design:

A big shoutout to everyone who helped us reach this QRazy milestone!

August POTM Requirements

Lastly, our August POTM criteria will call for player nominations! As the QRazy 8’s challenge demonstrated, Munzee thrives due to its awesome, interactive community. We’re lucky to have a dedicated players base who helps maintain the map, as demonstrated by ZeeQRew and QRew statuses. Do you know a player who readily responds to missing munzees and is dedicated to keeping the map clean? Email your nominations to iloveyou@munzee.com! Please keep in mind that the nominated account will need to be verified as either ZeeQRew or QRew for the chance to win August POTM!

A big congratulations to all of our July POTM and GOTM winners! We’ve had a fantastic month celebrating Munzee with many of you! Remember that there are still two weeks of birthday celebrations left to be had, as well as MHQ Bash 6 on the horizon!

Munzee on!

July GOTM is Twice as Nice with Double the Winning Gardens!

July has been an outstanding month, as an influx in specials hit the map and players celebrated Munzee’s 8th birthday all over the world in #8zees attire. That’s why we decided, why limit our July Garden of the Month (GOTM) winners to our typical two winning gardens, when we’ve been having the double the fun?! Below you can find all four of our winning gardens!

July GOTM

In honor of Munzee’s birthday month, we selected some of our favorite celebratory Munzee gardens for July GOTM. All winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map! Our winning July Gardens are as follows: 7th Birthday Garden, organized by Jesnou, Sivontim, Mandello, and Neesu; Happy Birthday Karte, organized by Engel19 and teamkiwii; Munzee Logo, organized by Bonn; and I HEART MUNZEE, organized by NativenUK! The winning gardens appear as follows:

7th Birthday Garden by Jesnou, Sivontim, Mandello, and Neesu in Helsinki, Finland

This festive garden, created for last year’s birthday celebrations, captures the fun and joy of Munzee! Thanks to our friends in Finland for working together to organize this celebratory garden, as well as many awesome group creations! 

Happy Birthday Karte by Engel19 and teamkiwii in Stuttgart, Germany

Husband and wife team Engel19 and teamkiwii have organized a number of garden projects over the years to grow the game in the Stuttgart area of Germany, including this garden for last year’s birthday celebration. Together they have spent many hours planning and nurturing their wonderful gardens to spread Munzee joy!

Munzee Logo by Bonn in Bonn, Germany

Garden creator Bonn earned a second win with this Munzee Logo Garden, featuring the signature Munzee Logo and colors! Previously Bonn captured the Munzee spirit with one of the two winning March Gardens of the Month for his QR Code Map!

I HEART MUNZEE by NativenUK in Buffalo, New York

Inspired by the “I love NY” logo, this garden will turn red when completed and capped. Located in an untapped suburb of Buffalo, NY close to Niagara Falls, this celebratory garden was recently completed just before Munzee’s birthday month ended! We love this clever design that celebrates everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt! 

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

Do you know a garden that is worthy of the August GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!

GOTM Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.
