September 2020 GOTM Winners + October POTM Requirements!

Last year, we were planning to celebrate this year’s bash on Friday, September 25. Unfortunately, as you know, COVID-19 had other plans. Instead of the usual in-person events we traditionally enjoy, we had to seriously brainstorm how we’d handle it virtually this year. So far, we’ve released the Universal, specials commemorating past bash years with a complimentary and complementary Eventzee hunt, had a double points weekend, a 20% off sale, and as of yesterday, a Limited Edition Greeting Card. And there’s still more to come — just because the month is ending doesn’t mean the celebration will! We are now happy to announce the winners of the September Garden of the Month (GOTM), give a reminder for September Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for October POTM! The badges for September GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early October, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

September GOTM

As part of this year’s “Bash from the Past” theme we released a ZeeOps Transmission icon to signify the original announcement of ZeeOps at bash years ago. Some of you may have also noticed one of the badges from this special also teases some upcoming news! You’ll have to be patient for a little bit longer to find out what that TOP SECRET scrapbook means, but in the meantime we’re celebrating all things ZeeOps. So, we HAD to pick the Berlin- Capital of Spies as the first garden!

The second garden was chosen for its cool design and incorporation of virtual types that were featured in the past Double Points weekend. 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 Berlin – Capital of spies Garden, designed by 123xilef, and the Somerville Specials Garden, designed by prmarks1391, as our winning September GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Berlin – Capital of spies by 123xilef in Berlin, Germany

This garden was absolutely perfect for this year’s bash theme!

This garden was first nominated last September, and we’re happy to have the perfect opportunity to recognize it! Of the Munzee-themed gardens, Myths and Flats are usually what players gravitate towards, so this ZeeOps garden definitely stood out!

Somerville Specials garden by prmarks1391 in Victoria, Australia

The shape of this garden is very original and eye-catching!

The contrast between the single-type gem-shaped sections and the multi-evo-type cross-shaped middle creates visual interest! This is a great example of using a variety of types without it looking too cluttered.

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.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

September POTM

September’s POTM called for capping 100 scatters! Since there’s still a bit of time left to earn this badge, here are a few reminders:

  • Scatters are the munzees that are generated after capturing a scattering munzee. For example, when you cap an Air Mystery, that triggers Feathers or Golden Feathers to appear on the map for you to capture. Feathers and Golden Feathers are scatters.
  • If you need help finding scattering munzees near you, remember that we have quite a few different types that scatter — here’s a list, with links to the corresponding Help Guide articles:

Congratulations to all who were able to meet the requirements! You can expect to see the badge in early October. If you weren’t able to meet the requirements this time, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for showing some love to scatters this month! We enjoy the variety and different functions each have in the game, and hope you do too!

October POTM Requirements

Ever have a close call capping? Get spooked by a curious stranger when deploying? We want to hear your Munzee scary stories! For October Player Of The Month we want you to send in stories about some spooky situations when playing Munzee. We always want people to be safe when playing, so hopefully we can learn some lessons from your scary stories! Please send your stories to the Google Form at this link: https://forms.gle/zLqoudpAqsgzCfyS8

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

We hope you’re excited for what October has in store!

Munzee on!

August 2020 GOTM Winners + September POTM Requirements!

August saw the conclusion of the Camp Competition, with Camp FrEEZ emerging as the winner! However, all teams walked away with some useful prizes, including those of the Premium variety! New releases for the month include the Camp Critters, the Camp Munzee Greeting Card, and the Aphrodite Modern Myth, among others. Lastly, we also pushed out several updates, which included a NEW Tutorials area! We are now happy to announce the winners of the August Garden of the Month (GOTM), give a reminder for August Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for September POTM! The badges for August GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early September, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

August GOTM

This time last year, we released the She Said YES munzees to mark a very special occasion… so the first garden below caught our eye! Then we picked out another garden to match! 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 FLAT-O-FANT Garden, designed by volki2000, and the A Giraffe Visits Gadsden, AL Garden, designed by Dinklebergh, as our winning August GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

FLAT-O-FANT by volki2000 in Karlsruhe, Germany

Flat Matt’s notorious bad luck is the reason why he’s not included in this garden!

This cute cartoon-style elephant is constructed with lots of Flat Friend pins! We especially love the striking color combination of green Flat Robs and pink Flat Lous!

A Giraffe Visits Gadsden, AL by Dinklebergh in Gadsden, AL

Anyone think this giraffe resembles The Last Unicorn? Just me?

This rendering of a giraffe head is spot-on! Most of us just think of the yellow fur and brown spots, but the addition of the pink ears and blue eyes keeps the garden from looking too duochromatic.

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.

August POTM

August’s POTM called for nominations for players who have not been playing Munzee for long, but whose mastery of the game is increasing by leaps and bounds, or is otherwise a great addition to the community! There’s still time to send in your nominations — please fill out this Google Form for every user you’d like to nominate: https://forms.gle/o1SQfMHv93w2v8WL9 Separate nominations for each user makes it easier for us to award the badges!

Congratulations to all the nominees! You can expect to see the badge in early September. If you weren’t nominated this time, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for sharing your picks for Camp Munzee Campers! We loved reading about all the new players who’ve discovered the joys of our app, and have given new life to Munzee communities big and small all around the world!

September POTM Requirements

This month, we wanted to put the spotlight on scatters! Simply cap 100 scatters and you’ll have met the requirements to earn the badge! To clarify, scatters are the munzees that are generated after capturing a scattering munzee. For example, when you cap an Air Mystery, that triggers Feathers or Golden Feathers to appear on the map for you to capture. Feathers and Golden Feathers are scatters.

July 2020 GOTM Winners + August POTM Requirements!

This month we’ve been going whole hog with our Camp Munzee Birthday Celebration! So far we’ve been seeing great progress made by all camps, though Camp FrEEZ is looking like the one to beat! We also celebrated National Hammock Day and released some new Myth Variant capture badges earlier in the month! We are now happy to announce the winners of the July Garden of the Month (GOTM), give a reminder for July Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for August POTM! The badges for July GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early August, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

July GOTM

When choosing July GOTM, we tried to choose gardens that fit our summer camp theme! 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 Jeeper’s Jeep Garden, designed by gargoyle18, and Ladybug Garden, designed by Laczy76, as our winning July GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Jeeper’s Jeep by gargoyle18 in Clinton, NJ

Do you own a jeep? Is it your vehicle of choice when heading to a newly-deployed munzee?

A jeep is a vehicle for adventures! Whether it be camping, going on safari, or a humble road trip, its rugged design can handle rough roads and all sorts of weather well!

Ladybug Garden by Laczy76 in Komárno, Slovakia

The bright colors are striking (and not an indicator of poison, thankfully) and they don’t have too many legs, eyes, or other features that put the “creepy” in “creepy crawlie”!

Most bugs are pretty polarizing — you either feel grossed out or are fascinated by them! However, the ladybug is one of the lucky few that is appreciated by most (if not all) due to its cute appearance.

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.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

July POTM

July’s POTM called for nominations for players who would make great Camp Munzee Counselors due to their years of Munzee experience and wealth of Munzee knowledge! There’s still time to send in your nominations — please fill out this Google Form for every user you’d like to nominate: https://forms.gle/8h6sUqqX2inE5h4r9 Separate nominations for each user makes it easier for us to award the badges!

Thank you for sharing your picks for Camp Munzee Counselors! We love honoring players who’ve supported the game, not only by playing, but by being a resource for other players as well!

August POTM Requirements

This month, we wanted to feature players on the opposite end of the spectrum — the new kids who are a welcome addition to the Munzee community!

Do you know a Rising Star? Send us your nominations for POTM based on players who’ve recently started playing Munzee and have been kicking butt!

We hope you’re excited for what August has in store!

June 2020 GOTM Winners + July POTM Requirements!

June is officially the start of summer here at MHQ, so since a lot of us aren’t able to enjoy the usual beach outing we decided to bring the beach to you instead!

Swimming Into Summer Recap

We kicked off the month with new Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions which were a hit due to their unique characteristics! World Oceans Day was celebrated with a new limited edition Greeting Card and a special water-focused ZEE-Dayz. Aquatic Baby Animals followed soon after, with some new badges to earn! The following week, we met the first Modern Myth, Poseidon, who seemed to attract a few admirers thanks to his fit physique! World Sushi Day specials took over where the Aquatic Baby Animals left off, because what’s the beach without some delicious seafood? Lastly, the release of the Akvamariin stone rounded out all the themed releases for the month. There were many other fun releases in June that did not fit the theme as well, the most notable of which were the Trojan Unicorn badges!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the June Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for June Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for July POTM! The badges for June GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early July, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

June GOTM

When choosing June GOTM, we HAD to pick these two as they perfectly fit with our beach/ocean theme this month! 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 Seashell Garden, designed by dt07751 & hunniees, and Goldfish Garden, designed by szegedi, as our winning June GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Seashell Garden by dt07751 & hunniees in Gibsonton, FL

Gibsonton is famous for having colorful carnival employees as residents. However, it also has some beautiful beaches!

We’re not experts on seashells, but this garden likely depicts some type of tulip shell due to its pink color and the way it spirals to a point. They are the shell of choice for hermit crabs. Only the creators know for sure though!

Goldfish Garden by szegedi in Szeged, Hungary

The Holt-Maros river is the perfect border for this garden — many enjoy taking walks along it due to the beautiful scenery.

We love the HUGE smile on this cute little guy — wouldn’t you love to have him as a pet? We think he’d be best friends with Flounder from Disney’s The Little Mermaid!

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.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

June POTM

June’s POTM called for at least 1 Places Munzee capture for each day in the month. We enjoyed looking through photos attached to Places Munzees and choosing our favorites for the weekend reminders — we’ve got some seriously talented photographers in our player group! Here are the links to those reminders if you missed them (with some comments from the lucky players who’ve visited those Places): Reminder 1, Reminder 2, Reminder 3

Congratulations to all the players who were able to meet the requirement! You can expect to see the badge in early July. If you were not able to, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for showing Places Munzees some love this month! We hope that you found them convenient during this time of social distancing!

July POTM Requirements

For our 9th birthday we’re going to Camp Munzee and we’re looking for camp counselors! As we all know, the kids who have been at camp the longest know all there is to know about Munzee, so help us celebrate them!

Do you know an Early Bird or a Trail Blazer? Send us your nominations for POTM based on players who have been involved with Munzee for a number of years and why you think they’d be a perfect camp counselor!

May 2020 GOTM Winners + June POTM Requirements!

This month, we took a break from Social DistanZEEing events as we focused our development time on some exciting new things we have planned. However, we made sure that May still had a lot of new things to interact with! We celebrated May Day in the Munzee world by releasing World Laughter Day specials and three new Baby Animals in Munzpaks! New Places Munzees followed the next week, which included the much awaited Beach Places munzee! The week after brought Smaragd (we can kind of pronounce it now, can you?) and Skyland, which has been a popular destination for many players! And just last week, Hometown Heroes specials started appearing on the map in batches, along with new variants for the Cyclops and Nymph! Last but not least, we also released a few new Greeting Card munzees!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the May Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for May Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for June POTM! The badges for May GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early June, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

May GOTM

When choosing May GOTM, we couldn’t resist choosing another flower-themed garden — after all, one of the new Greeting Card munzees is called “May Flowers“! As for the other winner — let’s just say it relates to one of the aforementioned “exciting new things we have planned.” 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 Flower at Fort Monostor, designed by Laczy76, and MOA UNICORN, designed by geomatrix, as our winning May GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Flower at Fort Monostor by Laczy76 in Komárom, Hungary

This cute design reminds us of the beloved Eric Carle’s artwork! Simple shapes and bright colors!

Good things come in small packages, and this garden is definitely one of them! A nice compact size to hand-cap if you’re visiting the Fort Monostor museum!

MOA UNICORN by geomatrix in Bloomington, MN

Did you notice all of the Flat Hammocks around the edge of this garden? It’s unicorn-ception!

This is just one of geomatrix’s gardens that highlights the new square pin design we adopted with the release of Munzee 4.0! He’s also made a garden for the Yeti and Mermaid! You can see these designs and others he’s created  at this spreadsheet: LINK

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.

May POTM

May’s POTM called for nominations for players you’ve sent a Greeting Card munzee to. We wanted to help spotlight these special pen pals, who are crucial to staying sane during these difficult times! There’s still a little bit of time left to send in nominations, so if there’s anyone who fits this criteria, please fill out the Google Form at https://forms.gle/dqEHrv29yiK2YSnJ6

Congratulations to all the players who were nominated! You can expect to see the badge in early June. If you were not nominated, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for spreading friendship and love across the globe with Greeting Card munzees! We were hoping they would help players feel more connected since Munzee friends are perhaps the most important part of the game!

June POTM Requirements

For June’s POTM, we want to see at least 1 Places Munzee capture for each day in the month. Since the range on these munzees is much larger than most other types, we thought this wouldn’t be too tough to achieve — anyway, they’re probably already part of your routine!

Working towards this requirement will also contribute progress towards Places Streak Badges, so if you haven’t earned those yet, maybe this is the month to do it!

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

April 2020 GOTM Winners + May POTM Requirements!

While April still saw us mostly inside our homes, we were able to continue the Social DistanZEEing fun with a lot of new content! Since last month’s worldwide event was a hit, we created the Global QRantine event! We also released a few new munzee types — the Sir Prize Wheel and the Greeting Card munzees, which seem to be enjoyed by many! On the MOB front we started off the month with the hilarious Lou Rolls, which passed the torch to Baby Animals in the middle of the month. Last but not least, we were happy to see players posting their Munzee Bingo cards and enjoying the Zee-Dayz weekend!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the April Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for April Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for May POTM! The badges for April GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early May, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

April GOTM

For April, we chose gardens that we felt represented our current Spring season in the US well. 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 Circus Carousel Garden, designed by dt07751 & hunniees, and Easter Lily Garden, designed by markcase, as our winning April GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Circus Carousel Garden by dt07751 & hunniees in University Park, FL

It’s tough to make smaller gardens with a distinct form and this much detail, so kudos to the designers!

From the carefully curated colors to the clean, precise shape, we think everything about this garden is extremely well done! Looking at it feels like going to the circus and riding on an ornate merry-go-round!

Easter Lily Garden by markcase in Burlington, NC

We think this garden perfectly captures the beauty of its namesake flower!

Did you know that Easter lilies typically bloom in the summer when planted outdoors? The Easter lilies that you see in the spring are forced into an early bloom.

We also thought this newer garden below deserved an Honorable Mention! While we couldn’t award it GOTM this time since it’s missing a Garden Places pin (see below for GOTM rules), it will definitely be a strong contender next year! It is the G-Easter Bunny garden by Lanyasummer.

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.

April POTM

April POTM’s requirements asked players to keep up with the deploys made by the event account for the Global QRantine event. Most of the codes were easy to find if you followed our social media accounts, but there were a few trickier ones tucked in with the rest!

Congratulations to all the players who were able to meet the requirements! You can expect to see the badge in early May. If you were not able to meet the requirements, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for participating in our Global QRantine event! We had fun planning out all the details, and we hope you had fun hunting for all the munzees!

May POTM Requirements

For May’s POTM we want you to send us a nomination of someone you’ve sent a Greeting Card Munzee to and let us know why they deserve all the love!

Did you send Jimmy a Birthday Card because it’s his 40th? Or did Kylie receive a Get Well Card because she’s been a bit under the weather recently? Or maybe you sent Andy a load of Earth Day Cards because he’s always picking up other people’s litter when playing!

March 2020 GOTM Winners + April POTM Requirements!

March has been a totally QRaZEE month. It started out well — we released some new packs in the store to help out with Clan Wars requirements, and released the Destination Renovation update after getting some feedback from players at Munzee Madness 9. Then, the COVID-19 situation escalated, and we scrambled to alter our plans so that they could be more accessible to players in a variety of living conditions. Some quick thinking by our staff members yielded the ongoing Social DistanZEEing event, which includes the popular Eventzee Couch Potato Party!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the March Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for March Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for April POTM! The badges for March GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early April, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

March GOTM

This month, we chose gardens that represent our current state of affairs. 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 Patchwork quilt NL, designed by sverlaan, and Scared Kitty Garden, designed by Ovaldas and BituX, as our winning March GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Patchwork quilt NL by sverlaan in Woudenberg, Netherlands

Look at the variety of munzee types featured in this garden! This is definitely a must-visit if you’re in the area!

This MASSIVE garden has been on our list for a while — we’ve just been waiting for the right time to recognize it! The pattern certainly does remind us of a cozy, comfortable quilt, maybe one we’ve been snuggling under during these days we’ve been stuck at home!

Scared Kitty Garden by Ovaldas and BituX in Vilnius, Lithuania

This cute, simple kitty garden is facing a larger cat garden that seems to be in progress — will there be more additions to its family?

This garden reminded us of a certain viral video showing a cat that is obviously displeased with its owners being home during this time of self quarantine. Don’t forget that our animal friends need to adjust to this new situation as well!

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.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

March POTM

March POTM’s requirements asked players to help clean up the map by capping or deploying 200 greenies OR capping 100 QRewzees. While some players were able to earn this badge right at the start of March, others may have had a more difficult time, especially in the second half of the month.

Congratulations to all the players who were able to meet the requirements! You can expect to see the badge in early April. If you were not able to meet the requirements, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

Thank you for cleaning up the map and growing the game! While we may not be able to enjoy your efforts immediately, we certainly will once these tough times pass!

April POTM Requirements

For April’s POTM we wanted to increase participation with our Global QRantine event. If you cap all of the munzees deployed by the event account within April, you’ll receive the POTM badge! The event begins April 2nd!

February 2020 GOTM Winners!

February has been a feast for the eyes! Attractive Heartbreakers stole our attention at the start of the month, with the Red Heartbreaker’s sweet dance moves and charisma giving him a slight edge over the other Heartbreakers in the hearts of the players. Shiny Jewel Munzees have also been holding our attention! To complement Clan Wars requirements, we released new packs for them in the Freeze Tag Store, featured them in ZeeOps, and revealed 2 new jewels!

Despite all the distraction, we gave gardens their due attention! We are happy to announce the winners of the February Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for February Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for March POTM! The badges for February GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early March, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

February GOTM

This month, we chose gardens that fit our theme for the month, jewels and hearts! 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 Anaheim Sapphire Garden, designed by Muaddib, and The Saginaw Heart, designed by Brandikorte, as our winning February GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Anaheim Sapphire Garden by Muaddib in Anaheim, CA

A small garden that does a great job of highlighting a similarly-sized park!

Although this is called the Anaheim Sapphire Garden, we love that Amethysts also got to share the spotlight — their smaller cap radius can make it difficult to capture, but since this garden is located in a park, you’ll be able to cap them while taking a leisurely stroll!

The Saginaw Heart by Brandikorte in Saginaw, TX

A beautiful mix of pastel and bright colors make this heart-shaped garden unique.

Prolific garden designer Brandikorte does it again! Although this garden is somewhat near MHQ (about an hour and a half’s drive), you’ll find it’s much closer to DFW International Airport — the distance is cut in half. So if you’d like to visit, keep it in mind on your way in or out of Texas!

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.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

February POTM

February POTM’s requirements called for nominations of Munzee Power Couples, be they significant others, siblings, or good friends. We loved reading about the special bonds each pair of nominees have, and how Munzee is a hobby that both members of the pair enjoy!

All players who have been nominated will receive the following POTM badge. If you know any Munzee Power Couples that should be recognized, you still have a few days left! Send us your nominations by filling out this Google Form: https://forms.gle/qjoyRLZQKV7VQrj17! You can expect to see the badge in early March.

Thank you to all the nominees for showing that couples that Munzee together stay together!

March POTM Requirements

For March’s POTM we want to head back to basics. There are 2 ways you can earn this badge:

  • cap or deploy 200 greenies, OR
  • capture 100 QRewzees
    • You’ll need QRew or ZeeQRew status to be able to capture QRewzees. This status can be earned or revoked at 00:01 MHQ time on the 1st and 15th, so plan accordingly!

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

Don’t forget that there are badge lines for these 2 Munzee types! You can refresh your memory on the Greenie badge line HERE and the QRewzee badge line HERE. If you decide to shoot for this POTM badge, you’ll be making progress toward those badges as well!

Munzee on!

January 2020 GOTM Winners!

January is usually a slow month since we’re catching up on tasks left from the previous year on top of planning for the new year. However, January 2020 has been anything but slow! We kicked off the year with our new 20/20 Specials, contributed to Australian relief efforts with 3 new official gardens and Aussie Animals, and launched a new app update, among many other things! That being said, we aren’t too busy to keep up with a little gardening! We are happy to announce the winners of the January Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for January Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for February POTM! The badges for January GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early February, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

January GOTM

This month, we chose gardens that put us in a positive mood just by looking at them! 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 Helsinki colour Garden, designed by Jesnou, Sivontim, Mandello & Neesu, and the Smile Garden, designed by Whatsoverthere, as our winning January GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Helsinki Colour Garden by Jesnou, Sivontim, Mandello & Neesu in Helsinki, Finland

A simple but striking design!

This beautiful garden was designed to show off the 50+ new colors we made available for virtual Munzees in 2018! We love the shimmery effect created by arranging the gradation of colors just so, and the inclusion of virtual Jewel Munzees! 

Smile Garden by Whatsoverthere in Hagerstown, MD

Will this spark a trend in emoji-themed gardens?

This garden was completed just in time for the Happy Holidays Buddy! event, which our very own Daniel Hammock attended! 

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.

Australia Relief Virtual Garden Badge

As a special thank you to everyone who helped to fill the aforementioned relief gardens, we created an exclusive badge! We were amazed at how quickly the spots filled up! Everyone who deployed in at least 1 of the 3 relief gardens will receive the following badge:

January POTM

January POTM’s requirements called for nominations of Munzee Weather Warriors, aka Munzee Foul-Weather Players. We are seriously impressed by the dedication all the nominees have shown!

All players who have been nominated will receive the following POTM badge. If some deserving players have just popped in your head, you still have one day left! E-mail those nominations to iloveyou@munzee.com! You can expect to see the badge in early February.

Thank you for having a love so strong for Munzee that bad weather doesn’t scare you off!

February POTM Requirements

For February’s POTM we want you all to nominate players who are often paired up. We’re looking for Munzee Power Couples! These pairs don’t have to be romantically involved — friend pairs are just as qualified! These players are practically joined at the hip and are always considerate of each others’ goals (“Have you capped the Alternamyth that just popped up?” or “See if you can use a blast here!”). The players that play together stay together (and Munzee On!) so we want to spread the love!

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

Know any Munzee pairs to rival Sonny and Cher? We’re trying out something new this time — please send us your nominations by filling out this Google Form: https://forms.gle/qjoyRLZQKV7VQrj17

Munzee on!

December GOTM Winners!

December is always packed with activities — this month was no exception with Ninja-bread Men specials, an Ornament Design Contest, Advent Calendar announcements, and fun fashions and staff at Christmas events, to name a few! Before the year is out, we wanted to give one last gift to some lucky Munzee players! We are happy to announce the winners of the December Garden of the Month (GOTM), give one last reminder for December Player of the Month (POTM), and announce the criteria for January POTM! The badges for December GOTM and POTM will be awarded in early January, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

December GOTM

This month we wanted to highlight two gardens depicting adorable Santa’s helpers. 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 Bearmomscouter’s Xmas Polar Bear, designed by kelkavcvt, and the Pinguin Sennelager, designed by rabe85, as our winning December GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Bearmomscouter’s Xmas Polar Bear by kelkavcvt in Allentown, NJ

This sweet bear resembles a cute graham cracker or chocolate treat!

This garden was created last year for the third annual NJ Fire Christmas Party event! Attendees were able to view antique firefighting equipment at the NJ Fire Museum and participate in a mug contest! What a unique and special way to celebrate with fellow Munzee players!

Pinguin Sennelager by rabe85 in Sennelager, Germany

What’s black, white, and red all over? This beauty!

Creator rabe85 was able to capture the cute, bulbous shape of a penguin’s body by making it larger in size, which allowed for gentle curves in its design. Unlike the Xmas Polar Bear garden, this garden was completed quite recently (just 2 days before this article was first drafted!). Thankfully, players were able to fill it in the nick of time!

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.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

December POTM

December’s POTM’s requirements put the emphasis on event attendees. All you have to do is take a photo at a Christmas event and add it to the Event Indicator pin for that event.

All players who meet that requirement will receive the following POTM badge. If you have some photos still sitting on your device, you still have a few hours left! You can expect to see the badge in early January.

Thank you so much for being a part of the Munzee community in your area!

January POTM Requirements

For January’s POTM we want you all to nominate players who will brave the weather rain or shine to chase down munzees. We’re looking for Weather Warriors! They’re not afraid to beat the heat, and the snow never bothered them anyway. Tornados will have to wait if there’s a bouncer nearby. They might take this game a little too seriously, but we want to award them for their bravery!

As in the previous months, this unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins. The badge will appear as follows:

Know any Munzee players who play rain or shine? Looking at the event photos from this month, there definitely are some dedicated players out there! Please send your nominations (and photos of them in action) to iloveyou@munzee.com!

Munzee on!
