The tamagotchi discord I'm part of is thinking about making a fan zine. I'm wondering how many people here would be interested in purchasing a copy. I don't believe we need any more contributors, but I will let you know if that changes. The zine would be digital only, and the money would be...
One thing worth noting about the pix and pix party is that they go through batteries like crazy. If you do end up getting one, I recommend getting Eneloop AAA rechargeable batteries and an Eneloop charger. You can find both of them on amazon.
