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:

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.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

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.

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!

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.

December 2020 GOTM Winners + The Future of POTM

This month was all about creating some Munzee Magic in the form of the Holiday Card Collectors Club and all the various Christmas Combat Specials!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the December Garden of the Month (GOTM), give a reminder for December Player of the Month (POTM), and let you know about our plans for the POTM program in the coming year! 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

As we’re now fully into Christmas/Holiday mode, the gardens we’ve chosen certainly make the map feel a little bit merrier! 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 Xmas Knole Deer Garden, designed by Maattmoo, and the Queensland Koala Garden, designed by BonnieB1, as our winning December GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Xmas Knole Deer by Maattmoo in Sevenoaks, United Kingdom

This garden looks like a slightly more grown-up version of our Baby Reindeer Christmas Critter!

Maattmoo shared his thoughts behind the design:

It started over a month ago when I found out about an event being held in the grounds of Knole Deer Park for Xmas and the event organiser was trying to build up the area a bit for the event.

I thought, wow what a great space for a new garden, so checked if they wanted to do a garden or if I would be able to do.
They agreed that I was free to do and it would be a great addition to the area and event.

So what design, well Knole Park is famous for its free roaming deer herds and being a Christmas event, a red nose deer felt like a perfect fit. Now over the last month with some social media persuasion and gentle coercion we have filled the garden complete and with a week to go to the event too.

The event Maattmoo wrote about was on the calendar HERE!

Queensland Koala by BonnieB1 in Queensland, Australia

We started the year with Aussie Animals, so we thought it would be a nice way to end the year too!

This garden was created for another event that took place on the same day as Maattmoo’s, but across the globe! You can find the A Queensland Christmas event on the calendar HERE!

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.

December POTM

December’s POTM called for stories of Munzee acts of kindness. There’s still a bit of time left to earn this badge, so please send your stories to the Google Form at this link: https://forms.gle/JqF1LPaft6G6yeBAA

Thank you for sending in your stories! You can expect to see the badge in early January.

The Future of POTM

As the app has grown and changed we decided to re-evaluate the POTM program so it wouldn’t feel stale. So far, we’ve been alternating nomination-based months with requirement-based months. This was so that players could have fair and varied opportunities to earn the badges.

Our goal moving forward is still to feature and celebrate our players, but in a way that feels more organic and special. So although we will not be moving forward with the POTM program for the foreseeable future, we are still working out what new ways we can highlight our awesome players. Please look forward to more information in the coming months!

Munzee on!

November 2020 GOTM Winners + December POTM Requirements!

This month has been a bit all over the place, but as it’s sandwiched between Halloween and Christmas, perhaps November was doomed from the start to be a strange transitional period.

For those looking forward to Christmas, we started off strong with the MunzPaks, which include the very popular Christmas Critters! We also featured a past Christmas Event in an amazingly detailed Event Spotlight by denali0407! Lastly, we released the Holiday Card Collectors Club, which seems to be well-received so far! We have some more things related to Christmas in the works, so be on the lookout!

For those who wish it was still Halloween, we released the popular Kill Them With Kindness Greeting Card and had a double points day to go along with it!

As for non-holiday related updates, we announced the results of our Zeecret Agent Competition, released 3 more nomads, and a much-requested new Places munzee, the Drink Depot!

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

November GOTM

As mentioned above, we’re caught between Halloween and Christmas, so the first garden we chose reflects this split. The second garden was chosen as it looks like the perfect Christmas gift for a young child! 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 Claire’s Candy Canes Garden, designed by Jeffeth, and the Teddy Bear Garden, designed by CoalCracker7, as our winning November GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Claire’s Candy Canes by Jeffeth in Ontario, Canada

We love the way Jeffeth expanded on the idea of Candy Cane gardens into other special days! Don’t forget that you can get a slightly larger Candy Cane garden deployed at your Christmas Event: https://www.munzeeblog.com/get-your-christmas-greetings-done-early-with-this-new-card/

Jeffeth shared his thoughts behind the design:

A garden made for my wife, who always enjoys getting into the Christmas spirit early. 🙂

It was designed specifically as a November garden. The first candy cane represents veterans day/remembrance day held in November, the second has a lot of orange in reminder of Halloween which just passed, and the third shows the original candy cane and Christmas that is coming.

Also, such a unique use of a variety of different munzees showing there are so many ways to make the same thing.

What an adorable way to celebrate the birth of a new baby!

This garden was created for this year’s Teddy Bear’s Picnic event! The tummy was colored blue to celebrate the birth of former staff member Daniel Hammock’s son.

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

November POTM

November’s POTM requires the completion of 20 Daily ZeeOps Missions within the month. There’s still a bit of time left to earn this badge, so don’t fret if you are close!

Thank you for trying out the new Daily ZeeOps! You can expect to see the badge in early December. 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!

We hope you enjoy what the updated ZeeOps program has to offer! To keep things fresh we’re planning to change up the missions and rewards in the future, so be on the lookout!

December POTM Requirements

This month’s POTM requirement was suggested by a player, and we thought it would be a great fit for the season of giving. We want to hear about Munzee acts of kindness! For December Player Of The Month we want you to send in stories about times your faith in humanity was restored (or perhaps you were the restorer of faith to someone else!) while playing Munzee. We know our player community is full of great people, so we’re expecting to receive a lot of submissions! Please send your stories to the Google Form at this link: https://forms.gle/JqF1LPaft6G6yeBAA

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 December has in store!

Munzee on!

October 2020 GOTM Winners + November POTM Requirements!

While September was the month of our worldwide Bash from the Past, we didn’t slow down for October at all! As hinted at with 2020’s Bash theme, this month was all about ZeeOps! On Day 1 we released a new badge line for Zeecret Weapons. A week later, we kicked off the Zeecret Agents Competition AND pushed out the Daily ZeeOps Update on the same day! While we’ve been actively monitoring the competition and making changes, we managed to add one more ZeeOps related release, in the form of new Nomads!

For fans of the color pink, we released a new Funfinity Stone, a new 20/20 Vision Munzee, and last but not least, Fancy Flat Lou!

As for seasonal-related releases, we had the Halloween Greeting Card, Deathly DeeZerts specials, and new options available for Christmas Events, including a 50-pack of Christmas Event Greeting Cards!

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

October GOTM

Both of the gardens chosen for this month made great use of the colors often associated with Halloween — orange, black, and purple — but used different Munzee types as their building blocks! 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 Jewels Note Garden, designed by Neloras, and the Berlin Bat – Berliner Fledermaus Garden, designed by 123xilef, as our winning October GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Jewels Note by Neloras in Bratislava, Slovakia

Perhaps the Jewels used to create this garden include a birthstone?

This garden was created in honor of Neloras’s girlfriend, who has a passion for music and singing! It was completed in just 20 days in time for his deadline of September (her birthday or their anniversary perhaps?). While we received this nomination a bit too late for last month’s GOTM, we are happy to honor it this month, especially since the colors are perfect for Halloween!

Berlin Bat – Berliner Fledermaus by 123xilef in Berlin, Germany

123xilef does it again! Will we see a new spooky garden this year?

This garden was created for last year’s Say Boo and Munzee on (Berlin) event! We think the gradient background, which is reminiscent of candy corn, really makes the garden pop!

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.

October POTM

October’s POTM called for scary stories! Since there’s still a bit of time left to earn this badge, here are a few reminders:

  • 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

Thank you to all who shared their stories with us! You can expect to see the badge in early November. If you didn’t have anything to share this time, maybe this coming month’s POTM will work out better for you. Keep reading to find out!

We loved reading your scary Munzee stories! Some were spooky, some were icky, some were stressful — but we appreciate them all, and they offered a unique insight into what can go wrong when Munzee-ing On!

November POTM Requirements

As we just released Daily ZeeOps last month, we think this is the perfect opportunity to encourage everyone to try it. Simply complete 20 Daily ZeeOps Missions within the month of November to receive the badge!

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 November has in store!

Munzee on!
