Limited Time Sale! Shop Mitmegu and More!

It’s time to act fast, because the Mitmegu Pouch Creatures will not be sticking around the Freeze Tag Online Store for long! Our limited time Mitmegu collection sale starts today at 10:00 MHQ time, and you won’t want to miss the following offers!

Mitmegu

Only a limited number of Mitmegu will be available for public sale. Each Mitmegu will cost $15, but you can upgrade it with a Bouncer Upgrade credit for an extra $5. The Bouncer Upgrade credit will equip your Mitmegu with the ability to be “nudged” to a new Munzee. This nudge feature can be used up to three times a day (MHQ 24 hour day) after it has sat for a minimum of three hours so that other players have the opportunity to find it.

Joining Mitmegu for sale are our other Pouch Creatures, Tuli, Vesi, and Muru. The Bouncer Upgrade credit will upgrade all Pouch Creatures and all Myths, so be sure to pick one up in the shop! If you haven’t deployed a Pouch Creature yet, now is your chance! The Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Pouch Creature. While the name will still retain the unique number, you have the chance to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. (Just remember our player code of conduct!)

Additionally, the Water, Earth, and Fire Elemental Munzees will also be on sale this weekend in strips of 5 for $8, which is 20% off the original price! We also have Shamrock Munzees available in strips of 5 for $8. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner so stock up now!

Lastly, we are all stocked up with new Pouch Creature Personal Munzee metal tags for $10. The tag designs feature each transformation of a Pouch Creature, including Mitmegu! Pick up your own Personal tag today, featuring your favorite Pouch Creature! Remember that each individual design is limited to ONE per account.

Who’s your favorite Pouch Creature? Let us know by connecting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Happy Shopping, and Munzee On!

Munzee 4.0 Is Finally HERE! New Features and Updates Explained!

We know that you have all been patiently waiting for the new and improved 4.0 version of the Munzee app, and we are happy to announce that it has finally arrived! That’s right, the wait is over.

You can download the iOS version of the new app HERE!

You can download the Android version of the new app HERE!

This is an entirely new build, so you will not update your current version 3 of the Munzee app. Instead you will need to search for the new version in your phone’s app store. Please remember that the app may take some time to propagate, so if you don’t see it in the App or Google Play Store, just give it some time. We will be keeping version 3 of the app active temporarily, but we do plan to shut down that version in the near future, so just go ahead and download 4.0 today!

But before you jump into the newly updated game, complete with brand new features, allow us to break down some of our favorite things about 4.0!

The latest version of everyone’s favorite game is a foundation for us to build upon. We consider it a vision for the future, with additional tools being added regularly as we move forward. Due to limitations from version 3, we’ve had to delay some awesome features in the past, but this will limit us no more! We have some big ideas ahead, but for now let’s take a look at what 4.0 has to offer!

Main Feature Updates

  • New and improved map loading speed.
  • New square pins for Physical Munzees and round pins for Virtual Munzees.
  • Updated artwork to include all types in pin form to more precisely show the location of the munzee.
  • New interactive walkthrough tutorial hosted by our buddy the newly energized Rover.
  • Reorganization of filters into categories, making them easier to sort through.
  • Players can now combine multiple premium filters at a time.
  • Larger, cleaner font throughout the game.
  • Improved compass that more clearly indicates the Northern point.
  • Improved follow feature to keep player marker centered on the map.
  • New in-app announcements system that will deliver news directly to the players.

Additional Updates

  • The Munzee capture button at the bottom changes between square and round depending on the type selected on the map so you always know which type you’re looking for.
  • Pouch Creatures and Evolution Munzees now include stage numbers.
  • New “All Alternamyths” and “All Places” premium filters.
  • Filters are now applied immediately. Players do not need to save each time they choose filters.
  • Players can now see what filters they have set for each preset, making it easier to edit and make changes.
  • Magnet and Special timers now show down to the minutes/seconds.
  • Added a new “Inventory” section to the profile, making it more clear to new players what they have available to deploy.
  • Players can now quickly tap to capture from the List view using the new green arrow buttons, instead of sliding the entry in the list then tapping to cap.
  • Tapping on badge notifications in the activity feed now takes you to that specific badge in your collection. 
  • Added countdown timer to the leaderboards for when it will reset in MHQ time.

Share with Friends

We know that playing Munzee can be a bit overwhelming to new players, but many of our most diehard fans appreciate the complexity and pride that comes with mastering this multi-layered game. Luckily with our new in-app tutorial for new players, it’s easier than ever to introduce new players to Munzee. That’s why we’re asking our players to share 4.0 with their friends and family! 

As a limited time extension to our current Munzee Referral Program, we will host a referral contest starting next week! Help us share the new app and Grow the Game for a chance to earn a limited edition badge, prizes, and more! We’ll have more information next week, but this contest will not be retroactive, and it will only run from February 1 through 28.

While you’re waiting for those details, though, head over to the Freeze Tag Online Store and download a free Custom Referral Card. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to introduce new players to the game and get rewarded for it. The Custom Referral Card will contain your personal Referral code to share with new players. The more shares, the more rewards!

We will also be running several sales tomorrow in celebration of the 4.0 update release! There will be a separate blog post detailing those sales today at 12:00 MHQ, and all sales will begin at 12:15 MHQ.

We know this is long overdue, but we can’t explain enough how many possibilities this opens for the future. The whole team has worked so hard for this release, and we’re ready to keep the momentum moving forward! Thank you to the beta testers for their support (and constructive criticisms) throughout this process. This app would not be what it is today if it wasn’t for them.

Lastly we’d like to give a BIG thank you to all of our players for all of your patience. Thank you for the feedback! Thank you for helping us build the map! Thank you to the many who devote daily dedication to playing Munzee! We wouldn’t be here without you!

So go check out 4.0! Happy Hunting, and Munzee On!

Munzee Player of the Week: Ron Hudspeth (McRon)

As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Ron Hudspeth (McRon).

Who are you?
Ron Hudspeth aka McRonCapping in Berlin Tiergarten

Where in the world do you live?
In the town of Celle which lies between Hannover and Hamburg in the north of Germany.

How long have you played Munzee?
I started playing on the 21st November 2012.

How did you find Munzee?
I got introduced to the game through a work mate, “Blindauge”. He tried to get me to play another GPS game, but after a few hours crawling under bridges and around trees, I decided it was not for me. A couple of week later, he came up with a new game called Munzee. After logging in and deploying my first Munzee, I was hooked. The same day we both became Premium members and then made the biggest mistake we have ever made. We were offered virtual Munzees for $1 and, no really knowing what they were or how to deploy them, we didn’t buy any. ;( ;( I’m still waiting for that offer to reappear.

Köln Event

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Getting out and about with the Wife (Plueschi) and meeting up with other players either at events or if I see them capping near me then I’ll go and try to find them. I can remember watching 2 Australian ladies (Lisa and Helen) doing the Lamp Post Dance and creeping up on the Fab Four (Iain, Michelle, Maggie, and Pete). I’m also into the social side of the game in a big way which has brought me many new FB friends, some of whom we got to meet on our Florida Vacation this year which turned FB friends into real life friends.

What is on your wish list?
More special icons and badges. I like the challenge.

Köln Event 2014 with the Man himself

Tell us about yourself!
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, hence the name McRon, I grew up traveling the world with the British Army as my dad defended the Empire and ended up staying in the north of Germany, finding my wife and starting a family. Thirty-five years, four daughters, and six grandchildren (#7 is on the way) later, I’m still here. The area that we live in is great for playing Munzee with Hannover about 40 minutes and Hamburg an hour away. In Celle itself, it’s getting hard to find places to deploy LOL I work on building sites as a crane operator for a German construction firm. This also involves sites all Berlin Event 2014 with the Clanover Germany, and Munzee gives me something to do in the evenings (I’ll go and check out the local signs and lamp posts). I’m part of the 3-Länder-Clan which has been in every battle to date, winning Gold, Silver, and Bronze, with our lowest placement so far being #29.

Other hobbies include:
Almost every type of board or card game. I’m just a gamer at heart.

McRon also included some socials (one of which is on the Header Image), so cap away!

Meet Munzee Munday: Louise Gibson

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. Our team continues to grow and we’re excited with the addition of our new Munzee Events Manager, Louise Gibson. We hope can take on the Munzee events to make them better for our company and our players. So read on about Louise!

Name and Title:

Louise Gibson – Munzee Events Manager

Where are you from?

I was made in Cameroon (bleurghhh thanks for that TMI Mum & Dad), born in London, England then until the age of 5 lived in Cameroon and Nigeria. Moved back to London between the ages of 5 and 10, then moved to Marlow in Buckinghamshire. Lived there until I went off to Uni in Swansea, Wales for a couple of years, then a year in Chambery in the French Alps, then back to Swansea for another year. Moved to Cardiff briefly, then over to Dublin, Ireland where I worked for Guinness. Stayed there for a couple of years then moved down to Limerick for a year or so before moving back to London. Moved up to the East Midlands for a couple of years, then back down to London in time for the Olympics in 2012, then moved back out to Marlow in 2013. Where am I from? I have no idea. My Dad is Welsh, my Mum is English, my husband is Irish and my sons cheer for whoever is winning!

Olympics

Tell us about yourself:
I’m 37 years old, married and Mummy to 2 little boys. This all sounds a little familiar. I answered questions like these for my POTW interview less than a year ago. I’m sporty, competitive and determined, I work hard and play hard. I love to laugh and have fun, I like a bit of banter and I am at my happiest spending time with my friends and family. Most of my family Munzee, I must say hello to them, geogarley, geosian, georiffles, baconybits and darthxrisfaeriedee.

louvre

How long have you worked for Munzee?
I started working for Munzee in April but I was undercover until a couple of weeks ago. Was amusing dealing with some of my Munzee friends without them knowing it was me they were emailing! To be honest I was surprised no one commented on who I was – Events were suddenly being handled amazingly (hahaha), I was using English English and on a different time zone. Thank you to Rob for giving me the chance to take over events and run with it. It’s been challenging as I couldn’t have picked a busier time with all the Birthday Events, but I’m loving it and cannot wait to attend a few myself in the next few weeks. July is going to be amazing.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

The Events of course. They are brilliant, especially these days hahaha. I love the people. I’ve made some great friends through the game and I’m loving being part of Team Munzee now. I can’t wait to meet everyone. I love the constant innovation and the dedication of the players and the team. I had a lot of fun in the clan wars and was really chuffed to achieve Gold, Silver and Bronze with my clan The Plankers.

What are some of your other hobbies?
I am kept busy with my 2 little boys, they are bonkers to say the least, but my favourite hobby is cycling. I am a very competitive road cyclist and cheerslove to race. I am out on my bike or spinning in the gym most days, for hours and hours at a time. In the last year I have competed in a number of races and my best achievement was a 2nd place. I am hoping to win one though. I doubt it will be this year – I’ve recently had 5 weeks off training thanks to my appendix. I will be racing again in September, I am signed up for the 117 mile L’ Etape London and will be taking part in a mountain stage of the Tour de France next year ahead of the pros coming through. I love Strava to track my progress and keep me focussed and I am proud of my 22 Queen of the Mountain titles. I enjoy refuelling and thoughts of what I’m going to scoff and drink when I finish makes me go even faster! I’m on Facebook a lot and often stay up way too late on my computer or phone. I love socialising and am partial to the odd tipple. I also love to snowboard but don’t get to do it very often, I look forward to getting back on my board again when I next get the chance.…
