Community Stories – Diabetes, Part 2

When we announced our Diabetes Awareness Charity Special, we asked you to share your stories of living with diabetes, and health in general, and how Munzee has helped you. We’ve gotten a handful of stories that we will be sharing, and we hope these encourage you to share yours. These stories have been edited to exclude personal information unless explicitly stated.
I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes after my invalid husband passed away. Not liking the thought of taking tablets for the rest of my life, I had to do something about it. I knew about Munzee, but I hadn’t participated in it, so tentatively I made a start.
Well 6 months after diagnosis, I was off the tablets, eating better and had ‘normal’ blood sugar levels. Lots of walking, travelling, meeting new people and playing the game has maintained that level, to the point where a specialist said he didn’t believe I was diabetic!
So thank you, Munzee, for the health benefits and long may the game continue.

If you have a story you would like to share with us, please email!

Munzee on!

Community Stories – Diabetes, Part 1

When we announced our Diabetes Awareness Charity Special, we asked you to share your stories of living with diabetes, and health in general, and how Munzee has helped you. We’ve gotten a handful of stories that we will be sharing, and we hope these encourage you to share yours. These stories have been edited to exclude personal information unless explicitly stated.

I have to write and tell you how this great game of Munzee helped me from contracting diabetes.

It all started a few years ago: I’m part of a team that creates treasure hunts to raise money for Breast Cancer Research. We were doing a hunt through Hollywood, and my task was to keep ahead of the contestant and make sure the clues were in place. Well, I just couldn’t keep up. When I got back home to the UK, I visited my Doctor, and after many tests, he diagnosed that I was suffering from Pre-Diabetes. In fact, I was very close to developing the disease full blown.

After a while that included a serious diet and much more exercise, I lost about 35 pounds, and was told that my new regime was for life. Well, I used to go letter boxing over here on Dartmoor, but was getting fed up with the wet weather and the need to dress for it. So, I started walking round the town.

It was all pretty boring until a friend of mine (a cacher) said the word Munzee. I had never heard it before, but did a google search.

From that moment on I was hooked. I bought myself an iPhone, and my walks were never the same again. I’ve kept my weight off, and more importantly my blood sugar level has remained in limits.

When the next person wins a silver eagle in the Cancer treasure hunt, I shall be heading to the USA once more. This time, the hunt is in Miami, so I shall take time out and pop across to McKinney, hopefully to meet up with you munzee guys. That will be just great !!

If you have a story you would like to share with us, please email!

Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Eddy Visser (BigLion)

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 Eddy Visser (BigLion).

Who are you?
I’m Eddy Visser, and my Munzee username is “BigLion”.

Where in the world do you live?
I’m living in a very little town call Azelo, and it’s located in the east of The Netherlands.

How long have you played Munzee?
I activated my Munzee account on May 26th, 2013, and it is now over 1600 days old.

How did you find Munzee?
I was playing another GPS game and saw a small sticker near by the location where I found the box. It made me curious because it said “Scan me for points” (it was one of the old fashioned types). Score points? Hmmm. That’s fun, and yes, a new addiction was born.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Going outside for a long distance walk or taking my bike. I recently bought an E-Bike, so I can go further away. It’s the tactical and strategic gameplay of Munzee with so many variations that gives me so much enjoyment.

Often we go for a long day with more Munzee friends to a city where big virtual fields are deployed such as Cologne or Paderborn in Germany or Amsterdam (Netherlands) and we have a great time there. But nost of all, it is the joy of meeting so many players from other countries.

What is on your wish list?
There are some things on my wishlist. Munzee visits to Prague, Berlin, Budapest, and London. I have an idea of making an arrangement to travel with a touring car with a big group of plyers for several days to Prague or Budapest. Maybe sometime…

Another personal wish is to score 100 Myths in one day. Doing that in The Netherlands is not easy.

Tell us about yourself!
Well I was born in 1960 and married in the late 80’s. I’ve got two great daughters who are grown up now and living on their own. I divorced 15 years ago. After that, I had some short relationships, and now I’ve had Anita in my life for more than 6 years. In June this year, I moved into her house. My daily profession is corking in the ICT as System & Application Administrator. Seconded to a customer for more than 10 years now. The alias “BigLion” is a combination of my “2m-length” and “zodiac sign lion”. I’ve used that avatar for many years.

Other hobbies include:
Searching for caches since early 2008. Every Thursday I go out with a good friend of mine to find several caches. I’ve found over 6,000 at this time.

Listening to good much and collecting, specifically the sound of Pink Floyd and, of course, our Ilse DeLange. You should really listen to her beautiful voice and her own written lyrics are very touching.

Any last words?
Thanks to the players who nominated me for POTW. Great! And thanks fo MHQ for making this special game. One little wish from me: Give the scatered specials free for capturing on your own munzees. In areas where few players live, these specials are almost never captured.

BigLion has also included a social, so cap away!

Introducing Myth Collector Badges!

With so many new Mythological Munzees popping up these days, you’d have to be crazy to go chasing after all of those kooky creatures. Luckily our players aren’t afraid of pushing the limits when it comes to capping munzees.

Myth Trapper – Capture 1,000 Mythological Munzees of any type.

So with that mind we’re happy to announce that a new line of badges have been released for capturing Myths of any type! Not for the faint of heart, these badges will tally up every Mythological Munzee you’ve ever captured.

Mythological Munzees:

  • Unicorn
  • Leprechaun
  • Dragon
  • Yeti
  • Faun
  • Hydra
  • Pegasus
  • Rainbow Unicorn
  • Gnome Leprechaun

The badges are retroactive, but you’ll only be able to see the requirements for the next badge once you complete the previous one. Once you earn the first in the set you’ll unlock the requirements for the next badge. All of the badges are live so you can start earning them now.

It won’t be easy to earn these badges, but we know you’ll brave the elements! Remember, you can increase your chances of finding Myths by using Elemental Munzees and Magnets. 

Happy hunting and as always, Munzee on!

Freeze Tag Merger with Munzee is Complete

The day has arrived. After months of hard work, long conversations, and a successful joint venture, Munzee Inc. has been merged into Freeze Tag Inc. This is a great thing for Munzee players worldwide as we move forward as one company, stronger together. There will be no changes to the game, other than great things in store for the future with additional resources and personnel.

Since Munzee Inc. is no more, I am now President of Freeze Tag Inc. with specific oversight on all products. These include Munzee, WallaBee, Eventzee, Garfield Go, and the rest of the FT suite of apps. We really look forward to a bright future with some great ideas on the horizon. As usual I have to play the part of Captain Vague, especially now that we are part of a public company. Please know I not only appreciate all of our player communities, but we all know this is only possible because of you playing our games and growing them with us.

I look forward to visiting with many of you at upcoming events and continuing to grow our games together. Thank you for your support, especially in the current diabetes charity special. As always, Munzee On!

On behalf of a grateful Team Munzee,

– Rob Vardeman, President of Freeze Tag Inc. 

Announcement Press Release:

Freeze Tag (OTC: FRZT), temporarily trading as (OTC: FRZTD), a leading creator of mobile social games, today announced the company has successfully completed a merger with Munzee Inc., effective October 18, 2017.

“We are thrilled to combine forces with Munzee Inc.,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag. “Rob Vardeman and the Munzee team have built a world class location-based gaming franchise with a dedicated player community.”

The combined company, Freeze Tag, Inc., will maintain offices in McKinney, Texas and Tustin, California with the management team comprised of Craig Holland as CEO, Rob Vardeman as President, Mick Donahoo as CFO, and Cecie Newman as VP of Operations.

“Six years of building communities in our family of apps, with a hard-working team, has brought us to this next chapter,” said Rob Vardeman, former President of Munzee Inc., and now President of Freeze Tag. “We look forward to the leadership and experience the Freeze Tag team brings as we all become stronger together.”

Freeze Tag will continue to align its vision with two fast-growing trends in the mobile applications world: AR location-based gaming and location-based advertising. The combined company has proprietary technology with the ability to create a portfolio of augmented reality location-based games for brands and iconic characters, such as the augmented reality treasure hunting game Garfield GO, which is currently live in several countries around the world.

According to advisory firm Digi-Capital, mobile AR (augmented reality) is set to become the primary driver of a $108 billion VR/AR market by 2021, with AR taking the lion’s share of $83 billion, with VR being the remaining $25 billion (source: Digi-Capital article.)

With Munzee’s dedicated player community and large installed base of locations and the combined technology of both companies, there are tremendous opportunities to offer engaging entertainment-centric, location-based advertising solutions. Location-targeted mobile advertising is advertising based on a user’s location or includes proximity-relevant content to trigger local offline conversions. According to BIA/Kelsey, a media research firm, location-targeted mobile ad sales are expected to rise from $12.4 billion in 2016 to $32.4 billion by the end of 2021. (Source:)

Freeze Tag management indicated that news related to current and future products will be forthcoming.

About Freeze Tag, Inc.

Freeze Tag, Inc. is a leading creator of mobile location-based games for consumers and businesses. Our games include hits such as Munzee, a social platform with over 5 million locations worldwide and hundreds of thousands of players that blends gamification and geolocation into an experience that rewards players for going places in the physical world, Garfield Go, a Pokemon Go style augmented reality game based on the iconic cat Garfield, WallaBee, an addictive collecting game with over 2,000 beautifully drawn digital cards, as well as many social mobile games that provide endless hours of family-friendly fun. We also offer our gaming technology and services to businesses that want to leverage mobile gaming in their marketing and branding programs.

Introducing the Gnome Leprechaun!

Last month in celebration of MHQ Bash we introduced the first AlternaMyth- The Rainbow Unicorn. Well our colorful buddy now has a new friend bouncing around and causing mischief- The Gnome Leprechaun!

In the spirit of friendship we have deployed Gnome Leprechauns for both Team Munzee and our pals over at Freeze Tag! So there are now 26 Gnome Leprechauns bouncing around the map. We have also added a Rainbow Unicorn for each Freeze Tag team member bringing the total to 26.

AlternaMyths are Mythological Munzees deployed on behalf of members of Team Munzee exclusively. You’ll get 200 points for capping the Gnome Leprechaun. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of normal Leprechauns (e.g. if the Gnome Leprechaun lands on a Shamrock, the owner will receive 34 points; if it lands on a greenie, the owner will earn 12 points).

Like normal Leprechauns the Gnome bounces to greenies and shamrocks every 12 hours, but as a fan of gardens they will also be attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees. You can also pull one of these rare globetrotters closer to you with a Munzee Magnet

Good luck on hunting down these traveling Gnomes and remember to leave a picture for us!

Munzee on!
