Announcing August GOTM and POTM Winners!

The end of the month means it’s time for some well-deserved player recognition! We’re happy to announce the winners of our August Garden of the Month (GOTM) and Player of the Month (POTM) badges, as well as the criteria for September POTM, which just might include a special badge! ūüėČ

August GOTM Winners

First let’s recognize some outstanding Virtual Garden builders! As always, 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! So if you organized or deployed in the Sunflower Garden, organized by wemissmo, or the Pegasus Garden, organized by zsomborpeto,¬†then congratulations on earning August GOTM badges!! The winning August GOTM gardens appear as follows:

Sunflower Garden by wemissmo in Fort Myers, Florida

Of course a garden located in the Sunshine State would be the one to offer this cheerful bouquet of sunflowers that brings happiness to the map! 

Pegasus Garden by zsomborpeto in Szeged, Hungary

With the release of our Pegasus variants earlier this summer, we had to give this garden a win for its creative depiction of this mythological creature! 

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

Do you know a garden that is worthy of the September GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!

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.

August POTM Winners

August POTM called for player nominations, as players submitted their selections for players with¬†ZeeQRew or QRew status who demonstrate their dedication to readily responding to munzees and keeping the map clean. We received several dozen nominations and couldn’t be more thrilled to give this badge to those players who help keep Munzee fun for all!

Scroll down to the end of the post to read the complete list of August POTM winners! A big thank you to all these awesome and active members of the Munzee community, and everyone who does their part to keep the map clean!

September POTM Requirements

To celebrate birthday month in July, we offered a brand new badge that any player could earn regardless of whether or not they had previously earned Player of the Month. Well, September has us pretty excited about MHQ Bash 6, so we decided to once again offer a unique POTM badge this month that¬†any player is eligible to earn! But before you get¬†too excited, you’ll have to meet the requirements to earn this badge:

Players engaged in September Clan Wars will now have an extra goal to aspire to, as any player who earns a minimum of 5,000 points from any Clan Weapon activity in September will be awarded this special badge at the conclusion of the month. That means that Clan Weapon Capture, CapOn, and Deploy points will all count towards earning this elite badge for September POTM.

Thanks for making August a great month for Munzee! We can’t wait to share all the fun that September has in store!

Munzee on!

July POTM and August POTM Requirements!

July has been a QRazy month, but when we say QRazy, we mean QRazy awesome! We challenged players to help us reach 8,888,888 deploys before the conclusion of the month, and the Munzee community joined forces to complete the QRazy 8’s Deploy Challenge by July 19! That means in addition to the July POTM badge, qualifying players can enjoy their QRazy¬†8 Deploy Challenge¬†prizes!

July POTM

Since July was Munzee’s birthday month, we wanted to celebrate a wide variety of players who help contribute to growing the game! All “Determined Deployers” who have deployed at least 16 munzees throughout July (not including socials and personals) will be awarded the special July POTM badge on August 1:

The July POTM badge is a special badge unique from previous POTM badges. This is a brand new badge that any player, regardless of previous POTM wins, is able to earn. Remember, there is still a day and a half left to finish your deploys before July ends in order to earn the badge!

QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge

In addition to the special July POTM badge, all July POTM winners also qualify for the QRazy 8 Deploy Challenge prizes! All players who deployed at least 8 munzees in the month of July will be awarded 1 Virtual, 1 Virtual Color Credit, 1 Urban Fit credit, 1 Physical Capture 2x Booster, and the limited edition QRazy 8’s badge on August 1! Check out the awesome badge design:

A big shoutout to everyone who helped us reach this QRazy milestone!

August POTM Requirements

Lastly, our August POTM criteria will call for player nominations! As the QRazy 8’s challenge demonstrated, Munzee thrives due to its awesome, interactive community. We’re lucky to have a dedicated players base who helps maintain the map, as demonstrated by ZeeQRew and QRew statuses. Do you know a player who readily responds to missing munzees and is dedicated to keeping the map clean? Email your nominations to iloveyou@munzee.com! Please keep in mind that the nominated account will need to be verified as either ZeeQRew or QRew for the chance to win August POTM!

A big congratulations to all of our July POTM and GOTM winners! We’ve had a fantastic month celebrating Munzee with many of you! Remember that there are still two weeks of birthday celebrations left to be had, as well as MHQ Bash 6 on the horizon!

Munzee on!

July GOTM is Twice as Nice with Double the Winning Gardens!

July has been an outstanding month, as an influx in specials hit the map and players celebrated Munzee’s 8th birthday all over the world in #8zees attire. That’s why we decided, why limit our July Garden of the Month (GOTM) winners to our typical two winning gardens, when we’ve been having the double the fun?! Below you can find all four of our winning gardens!

July GOTM

In honor of Munzee’s birthday month, we selected some of our favorite celebratory Munzee gardens for July GOTM. 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! Our winning July Gardens are as follows: 7th Birthday Garden, organized by Jesnou, Sivontim, Mandello, and Neesu; Happy Birthday Karte, organized by Engel19¬†and¬†teamkiwii; Munzee Logo, organized by Bonn; and I HEART MUNZEE, organized by NativenUK! The winning gardens appear as follows:

7th Birthday Garden by Jesnou, Sivontim, Mandello, and Neesu in Helsinki, Finland

This festive garden, created for last year’s birthday celebrations, captures the fun and joy of Munzee! Thanks to our friends in Finland for working together to organize this celebratory garden, as well as many awesome group creations!¬†

Happy Birthday Karte by Engel19 and teamkiwii in Stuttgart, Germany

Husband and wife team Engel19 and teamkiwii have organized a number of garden¬†projects over the years to grow the game in the Stuttgart area of Germany, including this garden for last year’s birthday celebration. Together they have spent many hours planning and nurturing their wonderful gardens to spread Munzee joy!

Munzee Logo by Bonn in Bonn, Germany

Garden creator Bonn earned a second win with this Munzee Logo Garden, featuring the signature Munzee Logo and colors! Previously Bonn captured the Munzee spirit with one of the two winning March Gardens of the Month for his QR Code Map!

I HEART MUNZEE by NativenUK in Buffalo, New York

Inspired by the “I love NY” logo, this garden will¬†turn red when completed and capped. Located in an untapped suburb of Buffalo, NY close to Niagara Falls, this celebratory garden was recently completed just before Munzee’s¬†birthday month ended! We love this clever design that celebrates everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt!¬†

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

Do you know a garden that is worthy of the August GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!

Announcing June POTM and GOTM Winners! (QRazy Challenge!)

It’s almost a wrap for June, which means we’re just days away from Munzee’s official birthday month! But before we dive into that celebration, it’s time to honor both our June Players of the Month (POTM) and Gardens of the Month (GOTM) winners!

June POTM

June POTM was selected based off player nominations, as we asked you to send in your choices for outstanding clan coordinators. Many players jumped at the opportunity to share their picks for players who step up to the plate and apply their top organizational skills to coordinating Clan Wars. You can find a complete list of the June POTM winners at the end of the blog.  Congratulations to all of these players for being recognized by fellow players for your outstanding leadership skills!

July POTM Requirements

Our July POTM requirements will see Determined Deployers being awarded. Anyone who deploys at least *16 munzees throughout July will earn the following special Player of the Month badge that we have newly updated for July winners:

Per usual, the July POTM badge won’t be awarded until the end of the month, but it is a new badge for Birthday month only. So even if you’ve earned the previous POTM or POTW badges, this will be a new badge to earn! And speaking of earning badges for deploys…

QRazy 8’s Deploy Challenge

It’s time for a community challenge! We challenge you all to help us reach 8,888,888 deploys before the end of the month. From the last deploy count taken on June 25, we are currently at 8,768,683 deploys. If the goal is met by the end of July, anyone who deploys at least 8 munzees of any type during July will earn 1 Virtual, 1 Virtual Color Credit, 1 Urban Fit credit, 1 Physical Capture 2x Booster, as well as the limited edition QRazy 8’s badge!

*Note: Socials and personals are excluded from deploy count and qualification badge for both POTM and the deploy challenge. If the deploy challenge is met, all players who deployed will also earn the Crazy 8’s¬†badge. (All prizes and badges will be awarded at the end of the month.) You people are QRazy, and we love it!

June GOTM

It’s time to recognize some outstanding Virtual Garden builders! While we have lots of exceptional garden nominations to choose from, we’ve been waiting to award our June winners for a little while now! All winning GOTM organizers, as well as all players who deployed in the winning gardens, will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map in one of the funnest ways possible. The June Garden of the month title goes to the Fort Worth Longhorn Garden, organized by denali0407, and Grenaa City’s Coat of Arms, organized by RUJA and Heinerup! You can view the winning gardens below:

Fort Worth Longhorn Garden by denali0407 in Fort Worth, Texas

Some gardens are so beautiful they don’t even need nominations! Everyone at MHQ (and online!) were big fans of this beautiful garden, which was created for Geowoodstock 2019, held in Fort Worth.¬†

Grenaa City’s Coat of Arms by RUJA and Heinerup in Grenaa, Denmark

This very large garden contains more than 3,000 virtuals for a flawless execution by this Danish duo. The garden depicts the coat of arms of the Danish town of Grenaa based on a seal from the early 14th century that depicts a bridge over the Grenaa river. A church stands on either side of the bridge, symbolizing the local church and older chapter, while the stars and crescents represent traditional Christian symbols of the time. This garden is near a very large birthday event taking place July 6 which Matt will be attending.

Did you have the pleasure of deploying in either of this month’s winning gardens? All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Do you know a garden that is worthy of the July GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!

GeoWoodstock Event Details Are Here!

Do you know what week it is?! It’s GeoWoodstock week! That means there will be plenty of capping fun to be held in Fort Worth this weekend at GeoWoodstock XVII. The largest geocaching event in North America takes place this Saturday, but we’ve got Munzee events from Friday, May 24 to Sunday, May 26! Don’t forget, our Flat Friends will all be on the map to offer plenty of points for those who can’t make it out (worth double points on the 25th)!

Munzee Event Details:

GeoWoodstock may be all about geocaching, but Munzee is all about coexisting! So in between GeoWoodstock happenings, we have a few events Munzee and geocaching players alike can enjoy! Remember if you purchased a CoExist package, you can pick it up at Friday’s event, or Saturday morning if you can’t make it on Friday. Check out the fun events we have in store for Munzee during GeoWoodstock weekend!

FRIDAY- 5/24

Pre-MunzStock: 18:00 to 20:00 MHQ time

The Emerald Spur

As those who attended GeoWoodstock last year might (or might not!) remember, Rob promised everyone who scanned the event indicator pin a spot in an Emerald Garden for THIS year’s event in Fort Worth, TX! The Spur Emerald Garden has now gone live, but we still have some open spots! You can purchase a spot in this garden in the Freeze Tag Online Store for $10. You’re limited to one per player, but you can buy one every 24 hours if it hasn’t filled up! Take advantage of this now because GeoWoodstock attendees will be sure to cap it!

Imagine THIS, but with Emeralds!

Announcing May Important Information!

Today we have a number of important dates to add to your calendar for May in addition to our Flat Friends schedule! May is a fun month for the world of Munzee, with many additional events on the horizon!

May POTM Criteria

Many Munzee players have been enjoying our revamped Player of the Week program, Player of the Month! Now that May has officially arrived, we are happy to announce the POTM criteria for this month.

The May POTM criteria will award all “Myth Masters.” Anyone who has captured 500 or more uniques of a specific myth (i.e. 500 unique Unicorn Munzees, 500 unique Pegasus Munzees, etc.) will earn the POTM title! If you are only a few captures away, fear not, because you will have until May 28 at 23:59 MHQ time to complete your captures for the chance to earn POTM in May!

QRewsday Schedule

Two weeks ago we announced the creation of QRew, and since then, many players have been reaping the benefits of QRewzee points as they work to help clean up the map. The QRewzee Munzee replaced the former Recycle Munzee, offering 100 Capture points and 10 CapOn points. However, the new icons will only appear on designated QRewsdays. Be sure to mark the following dates so that you can reap the benefits (and badges!) our QRewzee Munzees have to offer! The May QRewsdays are as follows:

  • May 4-6
  • May 9-10
  • May 14-15
  • May 19, May 23, May 25
  • May 28-29

Remember, if you didn’t make QRew (or ZeeQRew) as of 00:01 this morning, you’ll have another chance this month at 00:01 MHQ time on May 15!

Munzee Mania

Flat Robs will be hitting the map this weekend, as real Rob will be out of office for Munzee Mania! This weekend long Minnesota event will see a whole host of Munzee players attending from Friday, May 3 to Sunday, May 5.
