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!


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.

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: Brad Bond (NativeTexan)

A relatively new face on the scene, this week’s Player of the Week has quickly won the hearts of the community, and Team Munzee.  Passionate about geo-location games, and supportive of his local Munzee community!  You can find his smiling, upbeat personality shining on Facebook and around the web, and you can also contribute to his very exciting garden near Munzee Headquarters!  This week’s Player of the week is Brad Bond, aka, NativeTexan.  Read below to learn more about our newest enthusiastic Player of the Week!


Who are you?
My name is Brad Bond. Actually Brad is my middle name. My first name is James. And yes, I hear all the jokes about being James Bond! In the Munzee world, I’m NativeTexan.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Denison, TX. It is about 45 minutes due North of Munzee Headquarters and is on the Texas/Oklahoma border. Some people might recognize the town because it is the same town Trish lives.

MeJenBradHow long have you played Munzee?
I have only been playing since the end of January, 2014. But it only took me a day or two to become totally hooked! Two days after I signed up for an account, I went premium.

How did you find Munzee?
I heard about it on Facebook from a caching page. Someone posted a question about Munzee and my immediate comment was, “What is Munzee?” I googled the term and found and after looking through the website and then seeing the map, I was amazed at the number of Munzees in this small town. I downloaded the app to my phone and went to find my first Munzee. I also joined some Munzee Facebook pages and started asking questions. I decided to join a clan two days later but I joined a laid back one since I wasn’t sure what all the clan stuff was about. Then on the second month I decided to join a clan that wanted to go for the Chuck and we made it! If I wasn’t totally hooked before then, that did it for me.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I really enjoy getting outside but I have to admit, I am hooked on the points, badges and clan weapons! One thing I am really excited about is going to my first Munzee Bash. I remember reading all the fun stuff about MMIII and seeing the pictures of everyone who attended. I’m looking forward to going to something like that. Another thing that I really love about this game is the interaction between players and the MHQ staff. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and I was amazed how much the MHQ team interacts with the players on social media. I remember the day that my daughter and I decided to make the short trip to MHQ to meet the team. I wasn’t sure if it was appropriate just to walk in but we were greeted with open arms. That was a fun day for us.

What is on your wish list?
It is hard for me to say that I have a wish list since I am pretty new to this great game. But, I think for me I want to make sure I get more “special” icons in my list of icons. Of course, I really want the get the 10K and Centurion Badges. That is my goal for now.

Tell us about yourself!
I was born and raised in Texas. I have lived there all my life except for 5 years I spent in Summerville, SC. I really loved living there but was very glad to get back to Texas. I have four children, all of whom are adults and one granddaughter who is almost 5 and lives about 20 minutes from me. I have two boys who live in Texas and one son who lives in New York. My fourth is my only daughter. She is the oldest of all four. She and I live together and have for a few years. About 2 years ago she decided to try and adopt so we became a foster home. We have had 3 placements in our home for a total of 4 kids. The little girl we have now is 6 years old and she it totally hooked on Munzee! Every time we go into a store she starts turning bottles and packages around looking for QR codes. When she sees one she yells out, “here is a Munzee, scan it”. Not realizing that every QR code is not necessarily a Munzee, I humor her. I open the app and scan the code. She is disappointed when the buzzer sounds and it is not a Munzee. When we are out actually Munzeeing, her favorite thing is asking, “how many points did you get?”, after she hears the ding!

EmmaBut fostering can be a great thing. We know we are helping out some kids that need help at that time in their lives. They are so young and their world has been turned upside down. It is rewarding but as you can imagine it is hard as well. Sometimes you really get attached to these kids and then they end up going back home. It can rip your heart out at times.

Other hobbies include;
Like a lot of Munzeers I also enjoy caching. But when the weather is nice I really enjoy fishing! I live just a couple of miles from Lake Texoma, which is one of the best Striper fishing lakes in the country. I absolutely love getting on top of a school of stripers that are feeding on the surface. Every cast lands a nice fish! But now that I have discovered Munzeeing I have a feeling the fishing will have to wait each month until I meet the clan requirements!

NativeTexan was awesome enough to share his Social with us.  Cap it today!



If you know a player that should be nominated for Munzee Player of the Week, shoot us a message at and let us know just why this person is outstanding in the global Munzee community!

-Please note, this is a super active campaign.  We may not be able to get back to everyone, but you’re helping to grow the list of amazing people in the Munzee community!
