Map Updates Have Arrived!

Version 4.0 of everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt brought many positive changes, but one aspect of the game that still needed touching up was the maps. Today we’re happy to announce that the maps have indeed been updated, thanks largely to our switch to Apple Maps! Using Apple Maps will allow more up to date satellite imagery in order to portray the surroundings as accurately and detailed as possible for both Android and iOS devices.

Please note that although we have changed providers to Apple Maps, this new map system is available on both Android and iOS devices. We are excited to bring you a faster, more responsive, and improved map! Hopefully this will enhance the experience for those of you who play in satellite mode.

These updated maps were chosen for a variety of reasons, most importantly that they are as accurate and fast compared to the map system used in V3. This allows us to maintain the fast loading speed of the pins in the game with limited development costs. The new map also offers much more up to date satellite images, which is something the players have requested since V4’s launch. We’re hoping that this change will make the gaming experience more enjoyable for all players, no matter where you live!

Additionally the new over-the-air update has changed the deploy location to now be set when scanning a code or tapping “deploy,” not when reaching the “edit location” screen.

Does this update get you excited? Stay tuned for more updates down the line! And be sure to connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to always stay in the loop!

Happy Hunting, and Munzee On!

Blast From The Past Concludes with 00s Tags!

All good things must come to an end, and alas, we are concluding our Blast From The Past personal tags collection with the new millennium. The 50s, 60s70s80s, and 90s Munzee Personal tags have all enjoyed their stay in the Freeze Tag Online Store, and they have cleared out to welcome the 00s tags today at 15:00 MHQ time!

Can you believe that 2000 was already nineteen years ago?! Time really flies. You will have until April 10 at 15:00 MHQ time to pick up your 00s tag, which will end this nostalgic personal tags series with this off the chain conclusion. Remember to add your FREE Blast Capture to the cart with any Blast From The Past personal tag purchase.

In order to get the FREE Blast Cap, you’ll need to add both the Blast From The Past personal tag of your choice and a Blast Capture to your cart. No discount code is needed, but the discount will NOT be automatically added until both items are added to the cart. If you plan on buying more than one Blast From The Past tag and want more free Blast Caps, you will need add more to your cart for each tag purchase. Please note that this promo is only applicable to the Blast From The Past tags.

Like all of our personal tags, the 90s tag is made with sublimated images on metal to ensure for durability. (They can even survive the Y2K bug!) Let’s journey back to a simpler time when the pink Razr flip phone was the coolest phone on the market and everyone was chatting on AIM. Baby G watches were the dopest accessory to have, and we were all singing to Destiny’s Child. And of course, Myspace was all the rage! The 00s may not have had Munzee, but they were on the cusp of gaming greatness!

Be sure to pick up this wicked cool tag, and Munzee on!

Blast From the Past 90s Tags Are Totally Dope!

If you’re wondering why it smells like Teen Spirit here at MHQ, it’s because our Blast From The Past personal tags series is reaching its final stretch with our 90s tag dropping in the Freeze Tag Online Store today at 15:00 MHQ time! The last four weeks have brought us the 50s, 60s70s, and 80s Munzee Personal tags, and our penultimate tag is ready to get crunk!

One might say the 90s personal tag is the bomb. (And that person would be correct.) 

Are you considering missing this personal tags sale? As if! The 90s personal tags will be in the store for exactly one week, available for purchase until Wednesday, April 3 at 15:00 MHQ time. At this point our final tag, the 00s tag, will bump it off the market. To save some cheddar, don’t forget to add your FREE Blast Capture to the cart with any Blast From The Past personal tag purchase.

In order to get the FREE Blast Cap, you’ll need to add both the Blast From The Past personal tag of your choice and a Blast Capture to your cart. No discount code is needed, but the discount will NOT be automatically added until both items are added to the cart. If you plan on buying more than one Blast From The Past tag and want more free Blast Caps, you will need add more to your cart for each tag purchase. Please note that this promo is only applicable to the Blast From The Past tags.

Like all of our personal tags, the 90s tag is made with sublimated images on metal to ensure for durability. You should get crunk about the dopest decade in time, which introduced the world to the glory of Dunkaroos, the Macarena, Beanie Babies, Nintendo 64, fanny packs, gel pens, Tamagotchis, AOL, Discman, Lisa Frank, slap bracelets, Pokemon cards, and pretty much everything that mattered! (Except for Munzee… you’d have to wait until 2011 for that.)

Pick up a tag to relive the freshest decade in time! Honestly the only thing more fly than these tags is this photo of Rob from the 90s!

Back before the baseball cap

Boo ya! And Munzee on!
