On Sunday, March 18, 2022 at 11:58am EST, MetaZoo Games founder Michael Waddell started up another MetaZoo Hour on the official MetaZoo Discord server.

There were a total of 50 MetaZoo related questions & 1 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.

If you’d rather have the hour read out to you so that you can multi-task, or whatever the reason may be, MetaZoo HQ’s Video Partner Fizggig🕊️ did exactly that right here! Be sure to check it out and show your support if you can!

Michael Waddell at 11:58am EST:
@everyone MetaZoo Hour is NOW! Ask me anything in 📝-metazoo-chat

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 “NFT” to narrow-down the results. It all works dynamically. 🙂
