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!
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
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
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:
- Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
- The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
- The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
- We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

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!
