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.

Eventzee 1.72 App Update

We have released a new, albeit small, update to the Eventzee app. This new version sees a few minor changes along with one fairly substantial removal.

-The Calendar page has been removed from the app for the time being. The free hunts will continue via text Join Codes found on our social media pages and marketing emails. This is to declutter the initial experience of the app- specifically for new users at private events. There are plans to add in a reformed version of this page in the future, but for now players will have to join the hunts via public codes.

-With the removal of the calendar we have added an “Exit” button to event page on iOS. Exiting an event will take the player to the My Events page now. This replaces the previous way of exiting an event by clicking the date of the hunt.

-The “Message” icon has been added to the clue list, leaderboard and map pages. This is to ensure players can easily find and message event admins.

-A link to the event photo gallery is now available in the app’s leaderboard. Now you can see some of the photos other players have submitted and had approved.

-Minor bug fixes.

Eventzee Update Version 1.6

We’re proud to announce the Eventzee version 1.6 update for Android and iOS devices is now available. We’ve introduced a new photo clue feature and fixed a few bugs. Download the update today!

Features Include:

  • LIBRARY UPLOAD OPTION:
    Eventzee 1.6 features a new photo library upload option. You can now use photos you have taken in the past and upload them for certain photo scavenger hunt clues. This feature can be toggled on and off for each clue individually and is perfect for uploading screenshots of social media posts, throwback photos, etc.
  • LIMITLESS CLUE LENGTH (iOS):
    Previously iOS devices limited clues to a few lines of text, but now clue descriptions can be as long as you like.
  • PUSH NOTIFICATIONS FIX (Android Users):
    It was brought to our attention that Android devices were not receiving push notifications, so this issue has been resolved in the latest update.

The new Library Upload option is mostly for private clients, but our weekend photo scavenger hunt will see clues from time to time use the option. For example our #ThrowbackThursday clues will now be upload available. So instead of taking a photo of a computer screen, you can upload the photo straight from the app. It is still important for the integrity of the game though that photos are taken in real time, so this upload option will not be available for all clues.

Checkout the video below to see how it works:

Be sure to join this weekend’s free photo scavenger hunt to test out these new features. To join these hunts, just find the Weekend Warriors event on the Eventzee in-app calendar and RSVP or scan this week’s join code found on the blog.

Eventzee Update Version 1.4

We’re proud to announce the Eventzee Version 1.4 update for Android and iOS devices is now available. Although this version of Eventzee is light on new additions, one big feature (some might say a necessity) is the ability to resubmit photos after you have already sent one to the Admin. This is something that players have been asking for since we started and we’re now happy to say you can resubmit photos without having to wait for Admin rejection.

Along with the resubmit option we have made a couple more tweaks to enhance the overall hunt experience:

  • RESUBMIT PHOTO OPTION:
    We get it, sometimes mistakes happen and sometimes you might submit the wrong photo to the wrong clue. Now instead of waiting for the Admin approvers to reject your submission you can resubmit right in the app. Simply click on the photo and re-submit as many times as needed. Be cautious though because re-submitting a photo will erase the original photos submission time. Once a photo is approved you will not be able to resubmit.
  • ADMIN CHANGE TEAMS:
    Although players in Team Hunts have always had the ability to switch teams whenever they feel like, Admins now have the ability to choose whether or not players are able to. So if the Admin chooses to, you’re stuck with your team so choose wisely.
  • CAMERA ZOOM (iOS Users):
    Need to snap a pic from far away? Well now you can use the camera to zoom in and submit even more unique photos. This feature has been a part of the Android version for a while now, but iOS users can finally grab those hard to get photos too.
  • SLIDESHOW GALLERY (Desktop only, not in-app):
    We have also updated the desktop gallery to feature a slideshow option. Now when you look back on the photos from your hunt you can watch along easily. This new addition to the galleries is perfect for on-site photo hunts so you can see the photos as they come in. To check out this new feature visit eventzeeapp.com/gallery (or the private link we have sent you for your event), click on a photo and then press the triangle “PLAY” button in the top right corner.

Be sure to join this weekend’s free photo scavenger hunt to test out these new features. To join these hunts, just find the Weekend Warriors event on the Eventzee in-app calendar and RSVP or scan this week’s join code found on the blog. If you’re interested in hosting your own Eventzee hunt please contact eventzee@munzee.com and we’ll get you set up with the right package.
