MetaZoo Hour Summary • Mar 10, 2022 • 78 Questions

On Thursday, March 10, 2022 at 3:01pm EST, MetaZoo Games founder Michael Waddell started up another MetaZoo Hour on the official MetaZoo Discord server.

There were a total of 75 MetaZoo related questions & 3 personal/unrelated questions that were asked by members of the MetaZoo Discord community, and the answers all came directly from Michael Waddell himself; unless otherwise stated.

The Discord usernames of those who asked the questions is also now being provided at the end of the questions themselves.

As always, we’ll start off with the MetaZoo-related questions first, in the order that they were received, and then move onto the personal questions afterward. Try searching for things such as “Wilderness” or “UFO” to narrow-down the results. It all works dynamically. 🙂
