December GOTM Winners!

December is always packed with activities — this month was no exception with Ninja-bread Men specials, an Ornament Design Contest, Advent Calendar announcements, and fun fashions and staff at Christmas events, to name a few! Before the year is out, we wanted to give one last gift to some lucky Munzee players! We are happy to announce the winners of the December Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for December Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for January POTM! The badges for December GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early January, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

December GOTM

This month we wanted to highlight two gardens depicting adorable Santa’s helpers. 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 Bearmomscouter’s Xmas Polar Bear, designed by kelkavcvt, and the Pinguin Sennelager, designed by rabe85, as our winning December GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Bearmomscouter’s Xmas Polar Bear by kelkavcvt in Allentown, NJ

This sweet bear resembles a cute graham cracker or chocolate treat!

This garden was created last year for the third annual NJ Fire Christmas Party event! Attendees were able to view antique firefighting equipment at the NJ Fire Museum and participate in a mug contest! What a unique and special way to celebrate with fellow Munzee players!

Pinguin Sennelager by rabe85 in Sennelager, Germany

What’s black, white, and red all over? This beauty!

Creator rabe85 was able to capture the cute, bulbous shape of a penguin’s body by making it larger in size, which allowed for gentle curves in its design. Unlike the Xmas Polar Bear garden, this garden was completed quite recently (just 2 days before this article was first drafted!). Thankfully, players were able to fill it in the nick of time!

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.

December POTM

December’s POTM’s requirements put the emphasis on event attendees. All you have to do is take a photo at a Christmas event and add it to the Event Indicator pin for that event.

All players who meet that requirement will receive the following POTM badge. If you have some photos still sitting on your device, you still have a few hours left! You can expect to see the badge in early January.

Thank you so much for being a part of the Munzee community in your area!

January POTM Requirements

For January’s POTM we want you all to nominate players who will brave the weather rain or shine to chase down munzees. We’re looking for Weather Warriors! They’re not afraid to beat the heat, and the snow never bothered them anyway. Tornados will have to wait if there’s a bouncer nearby. They might take this game a little too seriously, but we want to award them for their bravery!

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:

Know any Munzee players who play rain or shine? Looking at the event photos from this month, there definitely are some dedicated players out there! Please send your nominations (and photos of them in action) to!

Munzee on!

New Year’s Resolution Streak Badges Return!

Last year we introduced our Resolution Streak Badges. Each month had a different goal for personal growth to focus on, ranging from the simple and specific (August’s “Read More”) to the more complex and broad (December’s “Give More”). We love reading the comments on these posts to learn how our players have achieved these monthly goals in different ways! To continue our journey of self-improvement, we decided to renew this badge line for 2020!

This year, we wanted to bring back the focus to one of the biggest benefits our game has — the ability to make being active fun! Each month will focus on a popular exercise. Who knows, you might be inspired to add one to your routine! Similar to the Super Streak badges all you have to do is capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. If you can make it through the whole month you’ll be awarded a badge themed to that month’s resolution goal!

To ease into this theme without too many sore muscles, we decided to keep this month simple and highlight the tried-and-true Jumping Jack! We hope just thinking about them won’t make you weak in the knees!

Did you know?

The American origins for this exercise can be traced back to World War I, believed to be developed by an Army Officer and inspired by a once-popular children’s toy which made a similar motion to the exercise. In the United Kingdom, this exercise is called a “Star Jump” due to the shape your body makes when doing this exercise. Perhaps we’ll try out this alternative name as we converse about our New Year’s Resolutions!

Jumping jacks are a great cardio exercise. If the standard jumping jack is actually tough on your knees, there are a few ways to reduce the pain — make sure you are on a level surface, wear good shock-absorbing shoes, keep your knees slightly bent, and try to keep your jumps gentle as well. If shoulder pain is a concern, try half jacks, which are the same as regular jumping jacks except that you bring your arms up halfway. Of course, please exercise (pun intended) extreme caution when trying this out. Consult your doctor before starting a new exercise routine, and always listen to your body. Stop when you feel too much pain. A little pain is okay — no pain, no gain, right? But don’t push yourself way past what your body is capable of**. All exercises have modifications to accommodate all body types.

We know capping a munzee each day won’t magically make you more fit, but we hope as you work towards this capture streak you think about squeezing in a few reps! Any movement is better than none at all! We’re all in this together and if nothing else it will help you get one step closer to the yearlong capture and deploy streak badges. We’ll have a different resolution badge design each month, but try and keep up with your resolutions throughout the year! We believe in you!

We hope you’ll tune in each month for a new exercise program! 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!

Continue Caroling with the 12 Days of Texmas!

Ho, Ho, Howdy! Before we closed our offices, we thought we’d schedule in one more surprise for y’all!

Alongside our Ho Ho Hoedown Christmas Events, these specials are a holiday tribute to Munzee’s Texas roots. As you may have seen on our Facebook Page earlier today, our CZeeO is quite a caroler! We wanted to share his joy of Christmas music with all our players, so we came up with our very own “12 Days of Texmas” specials! The first day’s special is now on the map, but you’ll have to stay tuned each day to see what the newest special is!

Kringle’s Cowboy Hat Special

A new special will go live on each of the 12 Days (6 physical, 6 virtual), but at varying times each day — we want you to be surprised! All 12 specials will remain on the map until January 6 at 23:59 MHQ time. Depending on the special’s type, it will either bounce to greenies or virtuals every 6 hours or when captured, and be attracted to the corresponding Magnets.

A different number of bouncers will be released for each icon, but to start off 110 Kringle’s Cowboy Hats will be on the map until the 6th. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.


  • Cap: 120
  • CapOn (Host): 120

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on number of captures of 12 Days of Texmas 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:

Prairie Pecan Pie- Capture at least one 12 Days of Texmas Special of any type.

We hope you’ll enjoy learning a new lyric each day! What other Texas themed holiday gifts might be in store? Y’all will just have to wait and find out!

Munzee on!

Make a resolution to capitalize on our Flat Friends and QRewzdays and earn those coveted badges and points! Here are some dates you can mark down on your fresh 2020 calendar as you plan your play time for the next month!

January Flat Schedule

In our most recent Facebook Videos, we shared some sad news which, among other things, left players wondering, “What’s going to happen to Flat Matt?” Somehow, we have magically arrived at a schedule for him for January.

Magnetus Joins Munzee As the Latest Pouch Creature!

This pet with an unusual proboscis may be a pest to Santa and his elves, but only due to the sheer numbers! The magnetic force emanating from the Magnetus’s bill is so strong that they are often found stuck on the most inconvenient metal surfaces, i.e. the communal fridge, various power tools, and especially Santa’s sleigh — sometimes the reindeer aren’t able to take off due to the weight of all the attached Magnetus! To help reduce Magnetus numbers in the North Pole, the latest Pouch Creature is on sale NOW and through the weekend in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

That’s right, that means you won’t have to set your timers for odd hours in order to guarantee a Magnetus purchase! You can pick up your Magnetus Pouch Creature for $15. Magnetus will be joining the ranks of Mitmegu, Tuli, Vesi, Muru, and Hadavale as the latest Munzee Pouch Creature. Pouch Creatures are based on items from our sister app, WallaBee, and represent a new era of munzees to enjoy! We also have a limited number of other Pouch Creature Munzees available in the FT store as well! Check out the entire Pouch Creatures Collection to get the whole set!


Like the Pimedus we introduced earlier in the year, the Magnetus will operate similarly to a Prize Wheel, randomly offering different prizes for cappers and owners! You can earn points, magnets, maybe even the high point earning Virtual Deploy Booster Credit?!?! That means you never know what prize you’ll be getting! Unlike the Pimedus, the Magnetus is a benign being. It will always reward you with points, but the amount will be reduced if you receive an additional prize!


  • Deploy: 250 points
  • Capture: Will vary from the following options:
    • 150 – 200 points
    • 100 points and a Prize

The possible prizes Magnetus will attract may change at any given time, but it will always be something fun! While the capper of Magnetus will receive one of the listed prize options, each Magnetus owner will ALSO have the chance to earn a random prize for each CapOn! This magnetic platypus will draw the nearest metal object, so you never know what you’ll receive! The prize options at launch for CapOn will appear as follows:

  • 100 points
  • 100 points and a Prize

Has the Pimedus met its match? You can find Magnetus hanging out on the following landing pads:

  • Greenies
  • Air Mystery Munzees
  • Blue/Red tones of Virtual Munzees

However, you can also unlock the following landing pads with a Bouncer Upgrade Credit for an additional $5, from the Freeze Tag Online Store. These additional landing pads include:

  • Water Mystery Munzees
  • Joystick Munzees
  • Joystick Virtual Munzees

When the Bouncer Upgrade credit is used, your Magnetus will also have the ability to be “nudged” to a new munzee. You can use the nudge feature up to three times a day (MHQ 24-hour day), but only after your munzee has sat for at least 3 hours. Additionally, the Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Magnetus! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct, and be mindful of maintaining a family friendly environment!

Magnetus will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Magnetus on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Magnetus visits you. However, Magnetus will be non-blastable. This Pouch Creature will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on Red- and Blue-toned Virtual Munzees. You can access Magnetus under the “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Pouch Creatures” filters.


Magnetus captures will count toward the overall Pouch Creature capture badges. Additionally all players who purchase a Magnetus will receive the following deploy badge:

There are also three more badges to unlock based on number of Magnetus captures. The first in the series will appear as follows:

Magnetus will be available for sale exclusively from the Freeze Tag Online Store from today until 12:00 MHQ time on Monday, December 23. With its many perks, this Pouch Creature proves it is capable of more than sticking to Santa’s sleigh!

Munzee on!

Flat Day the 13th’s Friendly Festivities

Did you guess what today is? That’s right… it’s Friday the 13th! While we typically associate Friday the 13th with October, the conditions for this special day can happen up to 3 times a year! 2019 actually had 2 Friday the 13ths, but to extend our Halloween in December theme, we wanted to save Flat Day the 13th for today!

To celebrate, we’ve activated 2x points on all Flat Friends activity (excluding Fancy Flats)! If you’ve capped all the Flat Friends near you, fear not — you can stock up on some more at a 13% discount! Just head to the Freeze Tag Store!

Due to unforeseen issues, 2x points for all Flat Friend activity will be extended until 23:59 MHQ on Dec 15th, 2019. The 13% off Flat Friends sale will also now end at 23:59 MHQ on Dec 15th, 2019 so don’t delay in getting 2-dimensional!

Hurry up before our friends flatten out!

Hydra and Banshee Variants are Nightmares Before Christmas!

If you thought the Dragon and Yeti variants were spooky, these new Mythological Munzee Variants will definitely change your mind! As of 12:00 MHQ today, you can now upgrade both the Hydra and Banshee Mythological Munzees into new variants!

Much like AlternaMyths, the Mythological Munzee Variants are twists on the original Myth types that allow them to bounce to other types of munzees. These variants are only available to Myths that have been “Upgraded.*”

All four of our new variants will have the same point values:

  • Deployment: N/A
  • Capture: 200 Points
  • CapOn: 100 Points

Cerberus Hydra

The three-headed canine is no man’s best friend! This variant of the Hydra Mythological Munzee leaps to the following:

Cthulhu Hydra

The octopus and dragon combo has traded having many heads for many appendages! This variant of the Hydra Mythological Munzee swims to the following:

Harpy Banshee

The fierce flyer can pick you apart at any moment! This variant of the Banshee Mythological Munzee flies to the following:

  • Greenies
  • Treehouse Munzee
  • Shamrock Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees
  • Jewel Munzees
    • Amethyst (V)
    • Sapphire (V)
    • Emerald (V)
    • Diamond
    • Ruby
    • Pink Diamond
    • Topaz
    • Aquamarine

Witch Banshee

The green-skinned gal is ready to cook up a storm! This variant of the Banshee Mythological Munzee flies to the following:

  • Greenies
  • Treehouse Munzees
  • Air Mystery Munzees
  • Fire Mystery Munzees
  • “Spell Ingredient” Evos
    • Tomato (All Stages)
    • Ear of Corn (All Stages)
    • Golden Carrot (All Stages)
    • Carrot (V) (All Stages)
    • Peas (V) (All Stages)
    • Family (All Stages)
    • Tulip (All Stages)
    • Rose (All Stages)
    • Lily (All Stages)
    • Carnation (V) (All Stages)

Upgrading Your Myth

Once your Myth is upgraded with the Bouncer Upgrade Credit, you can convert it to a new type similar to how you would convert any other type of munzee. Remember that you can only convert a Myth Variant once, and after a Myth has been changed, it cannot go back. Previously known as the Myth Upgrade, the Bouncer Upgrade Credit also allows for the opportunity to “nudge” your Myth to a new munzee up to three times a day in the MHQ 24-hour day after it has sat for three hours. Plus it gives you the opportunity to rename your Myth to something personal and creative!

Points for Variant Myths will remain the same. Variant Myths will also continue counting toward their specific Myth badges just like normal. The only thing that changes with an Upgrade is what it bounces to, as well as a new capture icon in the Specials list. For more info on Variants visit the Munzee Help Guide!

The new Hydra and Banshee variants join the Unicorn, Fairy, Leprechaun, Mermaid, Dragon, Yeti, Pegasus, and Faun Myth Variants. Which variants do you hope to see next? And which variant will you be upgrading to today? Let us know on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

Munzee on!

Best Dressed Christmas Event Contest Entries Gallery

We’ve been loving all the pictures from players at events this month! Seeing smiling faces in such cold weather speaks to how dedicated our community is.
