As Munzee players know, Virtual Munzees are special munzees that allow you to get points through munzees that exist virtually. These munzees are not in the physical world and are capable of being deployed in places where Physical Munzees can’t be. Virtual Munzees refer to both a type of munzee, as well as a variety of different munzee game pieces. One of the different Virtual Munzee types is the Temporary Virtual.
About the Temporary Virtual
Temporary Virtuals expire 30 days after purchase or being awarded (when they are added to your undeployed list). That means you have to think carefully about when you buy them in order to deploy them at an optimal time. There is a timer to shows expiration online and in-app, similar to Myths/Nomads.
Temporary Virtuals can be purchased in the Freeze Tag Online Store. There is a limit of 40 Temporary Virtuals per account for every 30 days. Like the Flat Friends, Temporary Virtuals are on a new layer of the map, so you are able to deploy them in areas that are already covered by other munzees, both physical and virtual. Temporary Virtuals are available for Quick Deploy.
- Deploy: 30
- Cap/CapOn: Split 75 with a minimum of 25 (i.e. 35 Cap, 40 CapOn)
Temporary Virtual Munzees are blastable. Their capture radius is 300ft, and their proximity rules are only affected by other Temporary Virtuals. You must deploy at least 50 feet from other Temporary Virtuals and 150 ft from your own. They do not have a proximity to any other type. Myths, Nomads, and other virtual specials will not land on Temporary Virtuals.
Why deploy a Temporary Virtual?
Temporary Virtuals were created to allow players to deploy in areas that would usually not be beneficial to place a more valuable game piece long term. Temporary Virtuals are very beneficial to deploy to help players reach goals. This is something that interactive players enjoy doing, since Munzee is a social game with a generous player community. Since Temporary Virtuals are on a separate layer of the map, you have the advantage of being able to deploy them in high profile areas, such as at major events where you know many players will be in attendance.
