April 2020 GOTM Winners + May POTM Requirements!

While April still saw us mostly inside our homes, we were able to continue the Social DistanZEEing fun with a lot of new content! Since last month’s worldwide event was a hit, we created the Global QRantine event! We also released a few new munzee types — the Sir Prize Wheel and the Greeting Card munzees, which seem to be enjoyed by many! On the MOB front we started off the month with the hilarious Lou Rolls, which passed the torch to Baby Animals in the middle of the month. Last but not least, we were happy to see players posting their Munzee Bingo cards and enjoying the Zee-Dayz weekend!

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

April GOTM

For April, we chose gardens that we felt represented our current Spring season in the US well. 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 Circus Carousel Garden, designed by dt07751 & hunniees, and Easter Lily Garden, designed by markcase, as our winning April GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:

Circus Carousel Garden by dt07751 & hunniees in University Park, FL

It’s tough to make smaller gardens with a distinct form and this much detail, so kudos to the designers!

From the carefully curated colors to the clean, precise shape, we think everything about this garden is extremely well done! Looking at it feels like going to the circus and riding on an ornate merry-go-round!

Easter Lily Garden by markcase in Burlington, NC

We think this garden perfectly captures the beauty of its namesake flower!

Did you know that Easter lilies typically bloom in the summer when planted outdoors? The Easter lilies that you see in the spring are forced into an early bloom.

We also thought this newer garden below deserved an Honorable Mention! While we couldn’t award it GOTM this time since it’s missing a Garden Places pin (see below for GOTM rules), it will definitely be a strong contender next year! It is the G-Easter Bunny garden by Lanyasummer.

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.

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.

April POTM

April POTM’s requirements asked players to keep up with the deploys made by the event account for the Global QRantine event. Most of the codes were easy to find if you followed our social media accounts, but there were a few trickier ones tucked in with the rest!

Congratulations to all the players who were able to meet the requirements! You can expect to see the badge in early May. 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 participating in our Global QRantine event! We had fun planning out all the details, and we hope you had fun hunting for all the munzees!

May POTM Requirements

For May’s POTM we want you to send us a nomination of someone you’ve sent a Greeting Card Munzee to and let us know why they deserve all the love!

Did you send Jimmy a Birthday Card because it’s his 40th? Or did Kylie receive a Get Well Card because she’s been a bit under the weather recently? Or maybe you sent Andy a load of Earth Day Cards because he’s always picking up other people’s litter when playing!

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:

Munzee on!
