November Garden Gnome Reminder + December Preview!
As the month comes to a close, we wanted to make sure you were heading into December with your desired Garden Gnomes! The skin for completing your November capture streak (and the corresponding badge) will be awarded in early December, but we couldn’t wait to share what’s in store!
November Garden Gnome Reminders
If you haven’t picked up a Garden Gnome yet, they are available in the Freeze Tag Store for $2.
Each month, the price of a Garden Gnome will decrease by $1. However, players can only purchase 1 Garden Gnome every 28 days.
Don’t forget that you’ll need to own at least 8 Garden Gnomes by the end of the year to have a permanent one next year — so make sure to stock up soon if you’re a fan of these sporty lawn decorations!
We also released special Reseller Garden Gnomes in March — if you’re interested, you can check out our blog post on them HERE!
December Garden Gnome Details
What Gnome Skin can you look forward to receiving in December? The skilled Skiing Garden Gnome! Like the other gnomes, the Skiing Garden Gnome is a temporary POB that will remain on the map
until 23:59 MHQ on December 31. as long as players with permanent Garden Gnomes continue to use it.
As stated earlier, to earn this skin, you’ll need to have completed this month’s (November’s) capture streak. Once the skin is awarded in December, you can change the skin on the gnome to this one at any point — refer to our original blog post for the instructions!
- Capture: 250
- CapOn: 300
You can find these chill gnomes gliding to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:
- Seasonal Munzees
- All Virtual Colors
Additionally, the Skiing Garden Gnome will scatter up to 3 NEW Gnome Toque Toppers nearby when it is captured!
Like the other Gnome Hats, the Gnome Toque Topper will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Gnome owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These hat scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.
The rewards for Gnome Hats are as follows:
- Capture: 50 points
- CapOn: 50 points
The Skiing Garden Gnome will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Skiing Garden Gnomes on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Skiing Garden Gnome visits you. Skiing Garden Gnomes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Skiing Garden Gnomes by turning on your “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.
As a reminder, Garden Gnomes have 4 associated badge lines:
- Unique type deploy badges — you’ll need to earn each month’s skin by keeping your streak up!
- Overall deploy badges — the more gnomes you deploy, the merrier!
- Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned gnome!
- Overall capture badges — capture as many gnomes as you can find!
While we revealed images for the first of each badge line in the original post, we are happy to show you the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Skiing Garden Gnome:
We hope you aren’t iced out from earning December’s Gnome Skin! Don’t forget to keep your streak up through December — you’ll need to in order to earn the extra Gnome Skin if you’ll have a permanent Garden Gnome next year!
