Madden NFL 20 MUT: Zero Chill Promo Guide – Operation Sports

The Madden 20 MUT Zero Chill promo is not too hard to understand. It introduces a new currency (Kindling) and works in similar fashion to other promos with master cards, sets, house rules, solos, etc.

The one unique aspect of this promo each year is the “gifts” concept, with the change this year being all gifts will open on Christmas Day, rather than throughout the promo as happened in the past.

We’ll cover all of that, plus the players known so far — we will continue to get new players throughout this promo that runs through Christmas — and anything else you need to know. We’ll also review some of the bigger cards from this promo in the near future, and we’ll add a link to this guide when that is done.

I’ll touch on holiday puzzles next, but the Hearth sets are probably not worth doing either. You spend 100 Kindling and the odds you get something worth that 100 Kindling right now are not spectacular.

Gifts

Gifts are also not worth the Kindling as of yet. It seems like the “large gifts” will be tied to teams — they’re color coded. With that in mind, the puzzle collectibles are worth selling right rather than putting them towards gifts in the sets section. The large gifts will almost assuredly include players, but we don’t know who those team-specific players will be, and there’s also decent odds we get even bigger gifts before Christmas, which is why selling the collectibles for now is a good way to make some money for the time being. That cost analysis will flip at some point, but on day one of these promos you’re usually better off selling the collectibles.

The presents ended up being a whole bunch of various players who had already been released in various forms.
