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!
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
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 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:
- 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.
Send your nomination for GOTM to firstname.lastname@example.org! 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.
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!

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:
If you were keeping up with the Social DistanZEEing event account’s deploys, you may remember some munzees only being available for a limited time. There may be similar munzees deployed in April, so be on your toes!
