June 2022 GOTM Winners
This month we filled the first few weeks with Flat Scatters! Flat Murray was anxious to share his dog toys during the week of the Platinum Jubilee, and we had a rerun of the Flat DHS tapes, but this time with new badges to earn!
We also started releasing things in preparation for our UnBirthday Celebration! Just last week, special UnBirthday Event Add-Ons were made available to those who’ve purchased a July Event Package. We also put together the UnBirthday Mailbox with some fun Wonder11and-themed capture messages for you to see in the days leading up to July. And earlier this week, we revealed NEW FL0W3R Mechz, which are much more polite than the flowers Alice encountered — but also much more lethal!
Lastly, we made some additions to the Education Set Evolutions and released new Hot Dogz specials for everyone to cap — but there’s still more to come for June! After all, we’ve got a little bit more than a week left!
We are now happy to announce the winners of the June Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded by early July, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!
This month is for the birds again — but this time, with a tropical twist! 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 Papagei Crumstadt garden, designed by stineB, and the Pirate Pete’s Parrot garden, designed by prmarks1391, as our winning June GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:
Papagei Crumstadt by stineB in Crumstadt, Riedstadt, Germany
Here’s a note from one of the players who nominated this garden:
StineB loves to design virtual gardens, especially with cute animals and colourful virtuals.
I think the garden would deserve the title “GOTM” 🙂
We definitely agree with this player! While they brought it to our attention all the way back in May 2020, and it was certainly an eye-catcher with the unique combination of colorful munzee types, we were waiting for the perfect time for it to shine in the spotlight. As summer officially started yesterday at MHQ, we still wanted to feature some gardens with a beach-y feel, and this garden fit the bill (pun intended) perfectly!

Here’s a note from the player who designed this garden:
The inspiration behind the design was the Pirate Nomad that lands on RUMs. A parrot is usually associated with a pirate in many movies and stories, and my family owns a ringneck parrot. It also allows locals to capture some Virtual Reseller Unique Munzees aka Virtual RUMs. Seeing as we are enduring regular lockdowns it has been a life saver to have these icons nearby whilst following the restrictions of our state government. Without the garden some of the limited time badges would not have been possible.
Like people, parrots come in all shapes and sizes! While the preceding garden depicts the quintessential parrot, we like that this garden represents the small, cute ones that make perfect pets! In addition, the note from the garden designer shows the thoughtfulness and teamwork present in the Munzee community to help others earn the limited-time badges we released during our RUM ZEE-Dayz!
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.

Based on your feedback, we’ve created a Google Form where you can submit GOTM nominations — here’s the link: https://forms.gle/SjUQeRxdi5FT81pCA
We’ll still check the firstname.lastname@example.org inbox for stragglers, but please try to send your submissions to this new Google Form instead.
