November 2021 GOTM Winners

Can you believe we’re already more than halfway through the month? It feels like we announced October’s GOTM just yesterday! Looking back at the month so far, we started things off by releasing our final set of Baby Animals via the MunzPak, In-App Store, and Redeem Store. A few days later we kicked off our word-y theme for the month with the Tongue Tied MOBs, and followed up the next week with the Flat Typewriter and the Short Story and Song About You Greeting Cards.

Looking forward, we also released a few things in preparation for the holidays next month: Christmas Events, Sir Prize Santa, and more new Greeting Cards!

Perhaps most exciting though, was our most recent update which allows Premium members to blast munzees according to their Filter settings!

We are now happy to announce the winners of the November Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded by early December, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!

November GOTM

While this month wasn’t RUM-focused, we did have pirates on the brain! 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 Pirates Treasure Map, designed by nyisutter, and the Pirate’s Treasure, designed by gargoyle18, as our winning November GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:

Pirates Treasure Map by nyisutter in St. Charles, MO

For extra incentive, Onyxes were used as the trail to the treasure!

Here’s a note from a player who nominated this garden:

This garden was created to lead players to all the treasure deployed by and for the Pirates clan.

On paper, a rectangular garden composed of mostly Virtual Colors doesn’t sound very exciting, but this garden is a shining example of the contrary! Kudos to the Pirates clan for coming up with a great design that we’d love to visit and cap someday!

Pirate’s Treasure by gargoyle18 in Clarks Summit, PA

The mixture of Jewels and Virtual Colors makes the inside of the chest very eye-catching, capturing the jewel tones we associate with treasure!

Here’s a note from a player who nominated this garden:

There are a couple local players that like the pirate theme. And this garden is like a sister garden to a pirate ship garden nearby. It is also hand cap-able.

Of course, we couldn’t resist pairing the Treasure Map with a Treasure Chest! We first heard about this garden in April 2020, so it’s been considered as a potential winner for a while — we were just waiting for the perfect opportunity!

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.

Based on your feedback, we’ve created a Google Form where you can submit GOTM nominations — here’s the link:

We’ll still check the inbox for stragglers, but please try to send your submissions to this new Google Form instead. 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.

Munzee on!
