Head to the Google Form HERE! Unlike our other nomination Google Forms, this should be limited to one submission per person. We’ll keep the form open at least until the end of Birthday Events, which means some time during our workday on September 8th.

We are also brainstorming more fun and interesting honors to bestow in the 10 months following our 10th birthday — in particular, ones that feature newer players, as more established players have certainly had an advantage in the awards we’ve come up with so far.

It’s hard to predict what the criteria will be, so just keep playing your way and

Munzee On!

Munzee Toolkit MunzDay: LindaH417

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help!

The week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes to us from LindaH417, who hails from Aurora, IL. She started playing Munzee over 3 years ago, but it feels like she’s been playing for much longer — we always see her participating in our Eventzee hunts and other virtual activities! Read on to discover her essentials!

LindaH417 Toolkit

My Father brought me into munzee in March 2018 and I fell in love with the game immediately.

No matter where I go, my munzee kit comes with me. I have 2 different shoulder bags that I use and both have many pockets and quite a bit of room, just depends on if I’m out and about, or going to a munzee event.

My Kit consists of:

  • 5 containers of different munzees
  • 1 brand new container with munzees that I will give out to someone I meet if they are really interested in the game
  • I have wipes, hand sanitizer, and a munzee mask if needed
  • Scissors and a flash light
    • I carry scissors because in one case I have quite a few rows of greenies. The flashlight comes in handy if it’s dark and I shine it on the munzee and cap.
  • My Personals and my munzee name tag and a screen cloth
  • Also my iPod Touch, comes in handy if I can’t reach a munzee, I’ll take a picture and cap it that way
  • I also have a mirror and a small ice scraper.
    • The mirror comes in handy when munzees are place in odd areas and the phone won’t fit. The small scraper works perfect in winter when you need to scrape ice off a munzee to cap.

I love to travel to areas to cap, and deploy, McKinney Texas, Minneapolis and Florida are on my Bucket list.

I’m known to cap something no matter what, I’ve crawled under sun dials in the snow, I climbed a 5 foot snow bank, as I was capping the munzee the snow underneath me started to give so I jumped and rolled down to the bottom 😂
If I see a special nearby at 1 in the morning, I grab my keys and in my pjs out I go!!

I love the game!!! 💚

Share Your Kit!

If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at iloveyou@munzee.com with the subject “Munzee Toolkit.” Make sure to include:

  • Your username and where you are from.
  • A few high quality photos.
  • A list of what each item is and how you use it.
  • What made you decide to use those items.
  • Any other relevant details.

Please feel free to include as much information about your gameplay as you wish to share! We want to see your creativity and learn how you play, so show us what you’ve got! And for Munzee tips and tricks, you can always check out our Help Guide articles!

A big Munzee thank you to LindaH417 for sharing her Munzee Toolkit! If you’ve got some spare Greeting Cards and want to say “Hi!”, why not deploy some in her hometown?

Munzee on!

July 2021 GOTM Winners

This month has definitely been one to celebrate as we kicked things off with the 10th Birthday Mailbox! Shortly after, we got the final race results of the #WorldBicycleDay specials — which eerily coincided with real-life Lou and other Internationelles‘ sweet success! As the 10th Birthday Mailbox goodies were revealed, we were happy to find that the MechaniC4K3 was a welcome surprise! Those that aren’t Tier 3 10th Birthday Mailbox members got their chance at the Blueprints for it a little over a week later. There are still more goodies to be given out, so we hope you look forward to seeing what you get!

In other news, we also released some very popular Go Fishing specials — many of you look forward to seeing the new types released each week — and a new Secret ZeeOp called Operation: QRypt Capper, which is currently the only way to get your hands on S4RCOPH4GUS Blueprints!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the July Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early August, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

July GOTM

As it’s our birthday month, we decided to choose 3 gardens to feature! The first has come close to winning GOTM in earlier months, but we decided to save it for this month. The second is perfect to commemorate an exciting event that happened recently. Last but not least, the third garden has a very fun design which reminded us of all the different goodies in our 10th Birthday Mailbox. 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 Trpaslík :: Gnomie Vrútky Garden, designed by kepke3 and Mon4ikaCriss, the Rob Hearts Lou Garden, designed by Buckeyecacher111 and the Munzball Machine Garden, designed by Jeffeth as our winning July GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Trpaslík :: Gnomie Vrútky by kepke3 and Mon4ikaCriss in Vrútky, Slovakia

Here’s a note from the player who nominated this garden:

Garden was designed by Andrej and Monika (kepke3 and Mon4ikaCriss), inspired by 2021 Munzee theme – catching cute gnomies around the world, all year round. Easter Egg fact – Gnomie from Vrutky is created mostly by virtual Evolution Munzees to highlight constant, monthly evolution of bouncing gnomies to many different skins.

Rob Hearts Lou by Buckeyecacher111 in Greenville, OH

Here are Buckeyecacher111’s notes on the garden’s design:

I made this garden as my first design […] This garden was originally a Green Heart, but was expanded after Rob proposed to Lou 🙂

Munzball Machine by Jeffeth in Ontario, Canada

Here’s a note from a player who nominated this garden:

Hello I would like to nominate The Munzball Machine by Jeffeth. The Garden he created somehow mastered design and utility I absolutely love it! […] Fun and useful to the area for an interesting blend of items to cap!

And Jeffeth’s own note on the design:

It’s a really cool way to highlight the huge variety of munzees available, especially for new players. And its my personal favorite garden I’ve made. 🙂

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.

June 2021 GOTM Winners

This month was all about bicycles, birthdays, and bots! As #WorldBicycleDay was on the 3rd, we took the opportunity to come up with some fun racing specials! They were so popular, that we decided to extend them to the end of the month and add 2 more racers to the mix! The next week, we released our 10th Birthday Mailbox to start building up excitement for our upcoming birthday month! The week after that, we introduced Cogs and RUMbots in an effort to keep the map from being overrun by Spyderbots once more. As the end of the month approaches, keep an eye out for more exciting releases to come!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the June Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early July, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

June GOTM

This month we chose gardens we felt embodied the spirit of summer! 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 Burkes Park Orange Garden, designed by EagleDadandXenia and kpcrystal07, and the Sandcastle in Sheringham Norfolk UK Garden, designed by Waves117 as our winning June GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Burkes Park Orange by EagleDadandXenia and kpcrystal07 in Dade City, FL

We took a screenshot of this garden from the app, which, thanks to the expanded filter options, allows us to get a clear view of the garden!

Here’s a note from the player who nominated this garden:

Hi! It’s been a thousand years since EagleDad’s first garden was launched and it occurs to me that it needs to be nominated. It was his first garden, but it was also the first garden in the entire area, and it launched a million others. Well, maybe not a million other gardens, but a million* other virtuals anyway!

Dade City has become a real destination, in large part due to the work done by Gary with this pioneer garden.

*Very, very slight exaggeration

Sandcastle in Sheringham Norfolk UK by Waves117

We love this Sandcastle with its use of varied yellow-colored munzee types, and the fun detail of Sir Prize Wheel on the flag as well as being guarded by Crossbows at the entrance!

Here are Waves117’s notes on the garden’s design:

Sheringham is a traditional seaside town in the heart of North Norfolk in England UK. At low tide the beautiful golden sands of the beach are exposed, ideal to sit, relax, build a sandcastle or two and now capture a few munzees!

Sheringham has kept it ‘Blue Flag’ status which is an international quality mark for beaches. The seaside award is a nationwide standard for the best beaches across the UK so this garden to celebrate this achievement. Come and visit you won’t be disappointed.

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.

May 2021 GOTM Winners

May was all about scavenger hunts and going places! For the hunt concept, we didn’t want to limit the fun only to Munzee — but to incorporate our other top apps, WallaBee and Eventzee, we had to get a little creative. To ease into it, we started the month with Lost Sock MOBs, which we felt portrayed the basic idea of a scavenger hunt. Towards the middle of the month, we followed up with a treasure hunt concept by making our first foray into NFTs with WallaBee. Now, towards the end of the month, we’ve created an actual scavenger hunt with the twist of featuring the other two games in Eventzee.

As for going places, we were excited to announce the ability to renovate Virtual Resorts, upcoming 10th Birthday event packages, 2 NEW Places Munzees, and an “Oh, ZEE Places You’ll Go”-themed ZEE-Dayz!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the May Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early June, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

May GOTM

The gardens we’ve chosen as this month’s winners do not fit the hunt or travel themes mentioned above — rather, they call to mind the more subtle updates to Rover (here and here) and the Baby Panda that was released just last Friday. How? They also feature cute animals! 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 Masquerade Hare Garden, designed by purplecourgette, and the Fasanerie Darmstadt 🦊🦉🦌 Garden, designed by stineB and GeoHubi as our winning May GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Masquerade Hare by purplecourgette in Bedford, UK

While it’s been more than a month since Easter, that doesn’t mean bunny-themed gardens are out of the running until next year! The Carrot Evos nearby are a fun detail!

Here are purplecourgette’s notes on the garden’s design:

This Munzee garden is to celebrate ‘Masquerade’. Which is based upon a treasure hunt that started in the 1970’s, a book gave clues to the location of a jeweled golden hare, created and hidden somewhere in the UK. The jeweled golden hare was hidden in Ampthill Great Park in the shadow of St Catherine of Aragon’s Cross.

Ampthill Park is a beautiful place to visit and has typical English countryside all around (https://www.greensandtrust.org/ampthill-park). It is full of history (as well as the hand-cappable Munzee garden!) For example it is the site of Ampthill Castle where Henry VIII stayed with one of his six wives – Katherine of Aragon.

Fasanerie Darmstadt 🦊🦉🦌 by stineB and GeoHubi in Darmstadt, Germany

As soon as we laid eyes on this lovely woodland-themed garden we fell in love! The varying shades of purple in the background complement the more muted browns, greens, and oranges that make up each of the cute critters!

Here are stineB’s notes on the garden’s design:

The “Fasanerie Garden” is our third garden in the City of Darmstadt. For us it is important that the design of the garden relates to the location. The Fasanerie (pheasantry) is a wooded area on the eastern outskirts of the city of Darmstadt. Many native animals live there (e.g. deer, foxes, rabbits, owls and other birds). A few hundred years ago the Fasanerie pheasantry was created as a hunting ground for the nobility. But now the animals can live there in peace. This was the reason, we chose the design with the tree and the animals. In addition we love the cute temp. “Baby Animals” bouncers 🙂

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.

April 2021 GOTM Winners

We kicked off the month with an explosion of April Fools’ Day pranks: fake filters, a fake Runzee splash screen, fake products in the Freeze Tag Store and the In-App Store, and a few other tricks you may or may not have noticed… We also had a few real items to enjoy, which were the Jack In ZEE Box tPOB and the Bag of Tricks and Sack of Surprises MOBs.

Other important happenings include the change in Egyptian Zodiac artifacts, the release of QRates and Cubimals, Roverhaul Part 2, and two rounds of new Greeting Cards (here and here).

We are now happy to announce the winners of the April Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early May, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

April GOTM

We certainly had fun planning all the pranks for April Fools’ Day, so we chose the first garden shown below as it fit the theme perfectly! The second garden was chosen for its gorgeous use of color and timely subject matter. 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 North Carolina Jester Hat Garden, designed by markcase, and the Kameleontti Garden, designed by RePe, tcguru, and kilpertti as our winning April GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

North Carolina Jester Hat by markcase in Burlington, NC

It also reminds us of our Harlequin Clown MOB that was bouncing around on our 7th Birthday!

This garden reminded us of all the April Fools’ Day shenanigans we had going on this year! Doesn’t it look like Jack In ZEE Box‘s hat?

Kameleontti by RePe, tcguru, and kilpertti in Raisio, Finland

Did this chameleon land on top of a box of Fruit Loops or something? Whatever the case, the color combinations are lovely and show off the range of Virtual Colors well!

We had pets on the brain this month with our Cubimals release and the latest Roverhaul update, and out of the animal-themed gardens yet to receive an award, this colourful chameleon took the cake!

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.

March 2021 GOTM Winners

March has certainly been a month of innovation! We kicked things off with the new Bee Evolutions in MunzPaks, followed soon after by Reseller Garden Gnomes! As socially-distanced events are starting to pick up again, we launched some new March into May Event options, which are perfect for adding the charm of Spring to the map!

Speaking of events, we had something to celebrate almost every week! First was real-life Lou’s #ChooseToChallenge campaign with limited-time Fancy Flat Lou scatters and badges! Next, part 1 of Roverhaul was delivered in our Jewel Day 2021 event. Currently our St. Patrick’s day event is underway, which saw the re-release of the Virtual Shamrock, new Greeting Cards, and ways to earn Zeds from Zee Folk and Leprechauns.

We are now happy to announce the winners of the March Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early April, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

March GOTM

It’s rare for a month to have 2 gardens which highlight our different releases so well — it just goes to show you that any design can have its time to shine, so don’t hesitate to let us know about completed gardens you enjoy! 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 Laidley Bee Love Garden, designed by BonnieB1, and the Lou [and Rob]-Feld Garden, designed by paupau, as our winning March GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Laidley Bee Love by BonnieB1 in Queensland, Australia

BonnieB1 does it again with this sweet design! We especially love her use of Carnation and Field Evos!

While this garden was submitted in February since it was created with Valentine’s Day in mind, we wanted to save it for this month as it was the debut of our Bee Evolutions!

Lou [and Rob]-Feld by paupau in Bielefeld, Germany

It can be hard to make silhouettes recognizable, but paupau did a great job with Flat Lou’s shape, assisted with monochrome virtuals for her helmet and bike.

This winner was another no-brainer as it reminded us of the limited-time Fancy Flat Lou scatters, and the theme of women and their accomplishments overall.

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.

February 2021 GOTM Winners

This month our Valentines Card Collectors Club took center stage! We hope you enjoyed seeing each day’s featured Greeting Card, capping our Assorted Chocolates and Mythical Bandaidz, making the most of all the double point days, and receiving a few extra goodies to deploy as well! On top of that, we also celebrated our good fortune in getting 6 more weeks of Fr057y, welcomed the adorable Hamilton Hamzee, and introduced a new type of credit — Jewel Shards! We are now happy to announce the winners of the February Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early March, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

February GOTM

Since we’ve got Valentines on the mind all month long, we just couldn’t resist the LOVE-ly appeal of these winners! 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 Secret Valentine Garden, designed by Jeffeth, and the Folk CrossBow Garden, designed by Neloras, as our winning February GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Secret Valentine by Jeffeth in Ontario, Canada

A perfect secret message, as this garden will disappear from the map once you cap everything! (But isn’t that true for ALL gardens? Shhhhh)

Is it wrong to pick another ZeeOps-themed garden this month? We think not, especially if it complements our latest Secret ZeeOp, Operation: ZEEcret Admirer!

Folk CrossBow by Neloras in Bratislava, Slovakia

It might be hard to see against the grayish background of our web map, but the darker Joysticks guide your eye along the bowstrings!

We’ve received a few Crossbow-themed garden submissions in the past, but this one stood out due to its more complex design and increased variety of munzee types. Also, we felt it was fitting for February as it is our Special Delivery Cupid’s weapon of choice!

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.

January 2021 GOTM Winners

January is always a very strange month, as we’re playing catch up after the longest break of the year, but also have new things to release! Some of the things we were able to catch up on were: releasing the Phantom Flats and additional Retiremyths, the yearly leaderboard badges, the 10 millionth munzee, and Winter Tree Scatters! Some of the new things we released were: Egyptian Zodiacs, Garden Gnomes, Secret ZeeOps, SleepZees, Hamilton Hamzee, Motivational Message Greeting Cards, and most recently, the VCCC!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the January Garden of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded in early February, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

January GOTM

The gardens we chose this month reflect this simultaneous old and new state! 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 Night Vision Agent NIVY Garden, designed by Rikitan, and the Charlotte Electric Lightbulb Garden, designed by MrsHB31, as our winning January GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Night Vision Agent NIVY by Rikitan in Bratislava, Slovakia

Isn’t it clever how the Garden Places munzee was incorporated into the design?

The release of Secret ZeeOps and the Walkie Talkie Watch earlier this month made picking this garden a no brainer!

Rikitan shared his thoughts behind the design:

I fell in love with Zee Ops just in summer 2020, shortly before this side-game was paused for reconstruction.
Upon its return I was thrilled to see small daily challenges, which are easy and motivating to follow & keep going.
To celebrate this milestone, I created a small garden for all united agents of Bratislava, capital of Slovakia.

We’re also fans of how he went the extra mile in formatting the garden spreadsheet to fit the theme! We highly recommend that you check it out HERE!

Charlotte Electric Lightbulb by MrsHB31 in Charlotte, NC

Can you wish on a lightbulb? We hope that this new year is the start of a brighter future.

The Electric Mystery was released last year on March 18, 2020, right around the time things took a more serious turn. While it’s been almost a year since, we love how this garden features our (still) newest Elemental in a very fitting design! In addition, the nearby garden of Virtual Colors is well-placed and will make the most of the Charge scatters!
