November GOTM and POTM Winners!

Far from being the intermediary month between Halloween and Christmas, November brought us some popular Origami specials, recognition for our veterans, and time to reflect on what we’re thankful for. As this month comes to a close, we are happy to announce the winners of the November Garden of the Month (GOTM) and Player of the Month (POTM), as well as the criteria for December POTM! The badges for November GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early December, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

November GOTM

This month we wanted to highlight two gardens of the avian influence — who says November is only for turkeys? Remember that 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. This month we’re happy to award the Owlgarden Zürich, designed by Tabata2, and the Berlin Tempelhofer Feld – Skylark/Feldlerche, designed by halizwein, as our winning November GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Owlgarden Zürich by Tabata2 in Zürich, Switzerland

This adorable blue bird is a work of art in its own right!

Owls have long been associated with wisdom and knowledge, to the extent that they are associated with the Greek goddess Athena. Was it by coincidence or by design then, that the garden blankets Zurich’s Nordamerika Native Museum (NONAM)? You’ll have to ask creator Tabata2!

Berlin Tempelhofer Feld – Skylark/Feldlerche by halizwein in Berlin, Germany

This garden is located in Tempelhofer Feld, once an airfield, and now the largest inner-city green space in Berlin!

While this garden was nominated earlier in the year, we think the colors are perfect for fall! Creator halizwein was inspired by the lively chirpings and calls of the skylarks, which are plentiful at Tempelhofer Feld in the spring. The spreadsheet for this garden even includes a link to a video where you can hear the skylarks for yourself!

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

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.

Send your nomination for GOTM to! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

November POTM

November POTM’s requirements were simple — all you had to do is be a Premium Member!

All Premium Members will receive the following POTM badge. On top of the badge, Premium Members will also be credited a Golden Carrot Munzee and a Vacation Condo Munzee as well! You can expect to see the badge and credits in early December.


Thank you so much for choosing to support Munzee by buying a Premium Membership!

December POTM Requirements

It can’t be the most wonderful time of the year without a wreath-y good POTM badge to go with it! As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

We want to see some festive fun at events! Anyone who posts a photo on an Event Indicator from Dec 1-31 will receive this badge! If you aren’t already planning to go to an event, why not host your own? Purchase Christmas Events in the Freeze Tag Store now! Don’t forget about our Best Dressed Contest either — you can kill two birds with one stone by posting the same photo on social media!

Munzee on!

ZeeOps- Operation: Glitch (December 2019)

Despite all odds, ZeeOps HQ has been given new life! Due to the success of Project: B.O.U.N.C.E.R. Director Zee has been rescued, and the enemy is one step closer to defeat. Together we can bring The Rising Sons to their knees, although it appears that the enemy’s stranglehold on HQ has made some messes.

ZeeOps scientists are investigating issues with the Neurological Memory Technology our recruits use for training. The system keeps glitching and Director Zee worries the enemy may be attacking from within. To stop this cyber attack you’ll have to complete a variety of past missions before the system is taken over completely.

December 2019 ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You can plan your Operations at and purchase more ZeeCred in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Remember that if you hit a snag at any point in your Operation you can use the Mission Mulligan feature to keep going!

This month’s Missions are as follows:

Level 1

  • Undercover Training – Capture 1 event indicator pin.
  • Greenie-ology I – Capture at least 20 greenies.
  • Game On – Capture and/or Deploy at least 10 Gaming type munzees (including scattered joystick games and bowling rolls).

Shop the Zee-sonal Sale Weekend!

It’s the holiday Zee-son! Although the American Freeze Tag offices were closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday, we wanted to get ahead of the game a bit and kick off our Zee-sonal Sale Weekend early! Formerly known as Cyber Munzday, we’re taking a bit more of a laid back approach this year and running the sales from now, Friday, November 29th at 10:00 MHQ through Tuesday, December 3rd at 10:00 MHQ.

We’ve got quite a few sales including discounts, previously unreleased items, and some throwback classics as well! You can find a preview of the sales information below!

20% Discount on Physical items

Our stockpiles of physical items need cleared out! Tons of different physical munzees are all 20% off. Just go to this collection and all of the items are automatically discounted. If you picked up our 2019 Advent Calendar you’ll definitely want to make sure you’re stocked up on various physical types in order to take advantage of all of the double points days!

Shop the whole collection here: 

MunzPak Exclusives- $2.50 (Normally $3), $10 Five Packs (Normally $15)

After a year of awesome MunzPak exclusives, we’re excited to get more of these unique types out in the wild! Players can now pick up Joystick, Butterfly, Frog and Lily physical credits in the FT Online Store. These physical credits will normally be priced at $3 each, but for our Zee-sonal Sale they’ll be available for $2.50 each! You can also pick up 5 packs of each of these new credits for $15 normally, but this weekend only they’ll be available for $10! There are no limits on these credits, so be sure to stock up.

Treehouses are normally $10, but this limited run will be available for $8 for the weekend.

Pick up your physical Treehouse sticker here:

Temporary Virtuals- $1.25 (Normally $2.50)

This hunt will feature 20 photo clues you can do from anywhere around the world! With the Christmas Zee-son in full swing expect many of these clues to focus on holiday cheer. Just by joining the hunt you will earn the special “Blue Christmas” badge and by completing the hunt you’ll earn another secret badge as well! Both badges will show in both Munzee and Eventzee apps. Everyone who completes the hunt will also be put into a drawing for one of three Freeze Tag store gift cards! The clue list will be released on the Eventzee Blog once the hunt begins.

*Please note that usernames have to be added to the event manually so please allow some time for this process.


It’s already been a busy holiday season, but we’re excited to offer all of these great deals as part of our Zee-sonal Sale Weekend! We hope all of our American players had a happy Thanksgiving, and that the rest of the world has a fun weekend as well. We’ve got an exciting month ahead of us before we head into the new year!

December 2019 Clan Wars Requirements

Now that we have a separate section for Clans in our app we are probably moving away from posting the requirements and rewards online each month. To keep the tradition alive as we end 2019 we’re posting the information today for Battle 81.

Ornament Design Contest!

Last week we saw how creative and crafty our players are with our mini origami contest on Facebook! The winning origami sculptures stood out to us because they had a nice Christmas theme going on… so we thought, why not double the fun by having players design us a Christmas ornament?

Please submit the following to by 15:00 MHQ time on December 3 to be eligible to win:

  • 1 submission per person
  • Must provide a .PNG, .PDF, or .AI file using this PDF Ornament Template, with your original design on it.
  • Can be any 2D medium (pencil, paint, graphic design, etc) but it does have to be sent to us in a finalized digital version for us to make it into an ornament.
  • Cannot feature any licensed character designs, but you can use Munzee artwork.

Once we reach the deadline, we’ll choose the finalists — then we’ll open it up to votes from the community! We’ll check the votes at 15:00 MHQ time on December 6 and see who won!

The winner will receive their own ornament crafted by MHQ, some munzees, and the knowledge that their design will be available to all in the Freeze Tag Store!

Ready to get in the holiday spirit and do some crafting?!

Munzee on!

December Resolutions Ask You to Dig Deep!

We’ve done it! We’ve reached the final month of 2019. Looking back at all the previous months, how has your journey of self-improvement gone thus far? This month we’d like to expand on the previous month’s theme of volunteer work by opening it up to all forms of giving.

Giving from the heart can cost nothing!

Since January, we’ve been releasing monthly Capture Streak badges centered around a year of personal improvement. Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution in our quest for a year of positive growth and change. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Besides volunteering, let’s consider the other ways in which we can give more!

The Good of Giving More

Everybody has limited resources. During the holiday season, this is probably felt even more so, as you struggle to cross off names on your own Nice list. Volunteer work is a great way to give more as it often only costs you time — but how else can we give more without further breaking the bank? Maybe you’d still prefer to give to strangers — in that case, have a tidying up session and donate your gently used items that no longer spark joy! The benefits will be twofold — you get a cleaner home, and someone else will get something they want and/or need!

If you need to ease your way into it, you can start by giving in your very own home! Is there anything around the house that needs to be repaired? Put on your ZeeQRew hardhat and fix it! Is there a Global Grub someone in your family has always wanted to try? Buy the ingredients on your next grocery trip and get cooking! Has it been way too long since your last Family Board Game Night? Break out the MH-Qlue, Monopoly, or your own preferred tabletop game and see if your strategies have improved since last time… or not!

Perhaps the most important way to give more, in today’s world of mental health and anxiety issues, is to lavish someone with words of love. Tell your loved ones that you love them. Spread the love to more distant family members and friends by calling, texting, e-mailing, or even sending snail mail to let them know how much you care. If you are already in the habit of doing those things, try complimenting a stranger. Many of us have been taught that “actions speak louder than words” and prefer to use actions (such as those listed in the previous paragraph) to show how much we care — but sometimes, actions are too subtle. Sometimes, we need to hear with our own ears that we are loved.

And that’s a wrap! We hope you enjoyed this year of Resolutions! Let us know which one you took to heart the most!

Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

The lack of bullet points below may have caught your attention — this is because our Flat Friends will be on the map ALL month! ? ?

Best Dressed Christmas Event Contest Details!

Let’s see that winter western wear! 

Our Ho Ho Hoedown Christmas events will be kicking off in less than two weeks! So as you’re all preparing to host and attend your festive Munzee Events we wanted to offer some more details about our Best Dressed competition!

In previous years we’ve asked players to show up in their dodgiest jumpers and one lucky attendee would be chosen winner by the host of that event. Well this year we’re shaking it up a bit in hopes to spread the word about our Ho Ho Hoedowns! 

In order to earn this year’s Best Dressed badge you’ll need to share an image of yourself at a Munzee Event in a holiday outfit. Whether that’s a dodgy jumper, a festive Father Christmas getup, or even a superb Snowman suit is entirely up to you! We’ll accept submissions through Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter! In order to win you have to include your username, the event name/location, the hashtag #HoHoHoedown, and tag Munzee. Please note that Christmas events don’t start until December!

As long as you follow the rules and put forth some effort, you’ll be awarded the Best Dressed Christmas badge. This year’s Best Dressed Winners will be awarded this badge featuring the most Christmassy Cowboy in town! 

We’ll share some of our favorite player outfits to the official Munzee social media pages throughout December, but the badge will not be awarded until after the month has wrapped up. Then we’ll add all of the winners to a gallery on the Munzee Blog to announce when the badge has been awarded! 

Don’t forget there’s still time to purchase Christmas Event Packages, but Trish’s diary is filling up so if you want custom artwork you better act fast! We’ve got an exciting month ahead of us, so stay tuned for more holiday shenanigans soon! 

Munzee on and Merry Christmas!

Philippines Global Grub

The year is slowly starting to wind down, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to feast! With one and a half months left for our Global Grub releases, we’re thrilled to announce the addition of Philippines Global Grub specials to the map starting today at 15:00 MHQ time!

A total of 11 Philippines Global Grub specials will be deployed. They will bounce to greenies every 12 hours or when captured. They are attracted to magnets on greenies.


  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Every time a Global Grub special is captured, you will earn a badge featuring a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country. Capturing the Philippines Global Grub will earn you the following special badge:

Lumpia is a spring roll originating from China and commonly found in Indonesia and the Philippines. It is a savory snack made of thin crepe pastry skin called “lumpia wrapper” enveloping a mixture of savory fillings, and consists of chopped vegetables or also minced meat.

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!

Munzee Celebrates Origami Day with All New Specials!

Have you noticed the Flat Friends have been playing with arts and crafts?!

While we’ve been mentioning the holiday season for a little while now, one special day that you might not have anticipated us celebrating happens to be the reason for our next specials! In honor of November 11th being Origami Day, we have a new set of bouncing specials that have started hitting the map!

You may have noticed the Flats’ arts and crafts project bouncing around the map already, but there are four types of the virtual MOBs. The Origami specials will be on the map from now until November 18th at 23:59 MHQ time to celebrate World Origami Day.

Origami Day celebrates the wonder of paper folding, both an exciting and restorative form of art. One of our 4 icons features an origami crane, an image symbolic of hope and healing through hardship. Folding 1,000 origami cranes is traditionally believed to grant one wish. Today these beliefs filter into charities revolving around this recognized symbol of hope. We’re launching these specials in accordance with this message, as well as to celebrate the beauty and fun of paper folding!

Origami Details

There will be 1,111 Origami specials (approximately 278 of each type) bouncing around the map. These specials will feature 4 virtual MOBs that will land on Virtuals and specific Flat Friends Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. If you checked out the November Flat Friends schedule, you might have noticed that Flat Friends will be active throughout the entire duration of these specials.

The 4 specials include:

  • Origami Crane, lands on Flat Robs and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Lily, lands on Flat Lous and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Boat, lands on Flat Matts and all colors of virtuals (278 of these specials)
  • Origami Butterfly, lands on Flat Hammocks and all colors of virtuals (277 of these specials)

The points* distribution for these specials will be the same for all 4:

  • Capture: 111 points
  • CapOn (Host): 111 points

You can access these specials by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. The Origami specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtuals.


Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of Origami specials. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 3 badges will be kept a secret! However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Wishful Wrappings– Capture at least one of any type of Origami Special

We hope you’re ready to celebrate the wonders of origami with us!

Munzee on!


*During the initial testing of these new types some players may have seen double points on these captures, but this issue has been resolved. All Origami special captures will be worth 111 points.
