Jan 31, 2018 | Announcements, Hunt Types
As we announced in Eventzee’s Year In Review post, 2018 is a year of Transitions. With that in mind we’re excited to promote our sister app ZeeTours’ new Contest feature- which you can join NOW in the ZeeTours app.
As a quick refresher, ZeeTours is a self-guided City Tour app that combines fitness, learning and fun into an unforgettable experience. Follow the tour path to a variety of points of interest, solve clues to complete challenges, and learn more about the city around you.
Currently ZeeTours has a handful of tours in American cities, but we wanted to give international players a chance to join in the fun- that’s where the Contests come in.
Similar to Eventzee’s former Premium Hunt platform, these pay-to-play Contests allow players from around the world to compete for prizes by completing themed Trivia and Photo Challenges. A new Contest is held each week starting on Wednesdays and running through Mondays. Each Contest includes a wide variety of Trivia and Photo challenges based on a weekly theme.
To join a Contest players need to:
- Download the ZeeTours app
- Go to the Contests tab
- Tap on that week’s event
- Complete the in-app purchase of 5 ZeeTokens to enter
As players complete Challenges they will earn points and a spot on the leaderboard. The top three winners from each Contest will then be awarded prizes.The prizes will vary from week to week, but could be Freeze Tag Inc gift cards, Amazon gift cards, etc.
Although ZeeTours has some similar features, there are a few notable differences that will make this a bit different of an experience from what Eventzee players are used to. We think you’ll all have a great time, but here’s a quick rundown of some of the differences.
Unlike Eventzee’s list of clues being released all at once, in ZeeTours you’ll have to complete each Challenge one by one to advance to the next task.
ZeeTours Contests put a big focus on Trivia Challenges. Similar to Eventzee you’ll lose points if you answer incorrectly, but there is also a speed bonus for answering correctly quickly.
Themed Challenge Sets
In its current iteration ZeeTours Contests are broken into mini themed sets of Challenges.
Each set will include:
- An informational slide announcing the theme and introducing the Trivia Challenge
- A timed Trivia Challenge question
- Three Photos Challenges
Unlike Eventzee there is no ongoing review process with ZeeTours Contests. At the end of the Contest the top three players will have their photos reviewed to make sure there are no clear cheaters. Because of this players will have the length of the Contest to complete challenges and upload photos, but will not be able to resubmit their photos if they are declined. In the event a cheater is identified, their Challenge will receive zero points and a new player will take their spot on the leaderboard.
In other ZeeTours news, we have also released tours in an additional five American cities with another four tours going live on Friday, February 2nd. All tours are available for purchase at www.zeetoursapp.com, in the mobile app via in-app purchase and through the Groupon app and website.
Thank you all for your continued support of both Eventzee and ZeeTours! Be sure to join this weekend’s ZeeTours Contest as well as our usual Weekend Warriors free photo scavenger hunt, which goes live Thursday at 3 PM CST.

In 2017 Eventzee stayed the course, and maintained our current client base while adding efficiency behind the scenes.* Although there may not have been many feature heavy updates, our focus for the year was optimizing how we do business to make our experience more efficient for both the customer and our staff. We’re thankful to all of our clients and particularly our partners who have continued to do business with us multiple times over the years.
With a new year comes new challenges and opportunities. In 2018 our focus and theme of the year will be “Transitions.” We plan on maintaining our core gameplay values, but also expanding our focuses into new markets and revenue sources. The first step in this process was the development and release of our new app ZeeTours- a Zany Walking Tour Adventure. ZeeTours take you on an adventure in the real world, using similar gameplay mechanics as Eventzee.
ZeeTours is a location-based smartphone game that combines fitness, learning and fun into an unforgettable experience. Follow the tour path to a variety of points of interest, solve clues to complete challenges, and learn more about the city around you. To purchase a tour voucher code just visit ZeeToursApp.com or download the app to your Apple or Android device. ZeeTours are currently available in nine cities with plans to expand to more at the beginning of 2018.
While Eventzee has always been focused on event based scavenger hunts, ZeeTours gives us the opportunity to reach new communities via an updated platform. The development of ZeeTours has also given us the opportunity to develop the Eventzee program in the near future. What exactly this development will look like is still to be determined, but we have lots of plans we hope to bring to fruition in 2018.
So as we begin transitioning to this new platform we want to thank all of our players and clients for their patience and support for nearly 3 years. We’ve got new and exciting things on the horizon and we’re ready for the transition!

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.
