Newsletter #42 for April 17th, 2023

Howdy folks!

It’s Tommy time! Community Liaison ThatTommyBoii reporting for newsletter duty!

If you’re looking for updates you’ve come to the right place, here’s your weekly news!

Hermitcraft TCG Card Game Live

Have you been watching all the hermits playing the HermitCraft TCG and thought “Wow I wish I could collect and play this in real life!”? Well now you can! VintageBeef and the Hermits have announced a physical edition of the game available for preorder now! You can find that over here! If you’re interested in seeing what Joe’s common card looks like you can take a look at this link here!

The Federal Trade Commission requires that ads and sponsors be disclosed when goods or services are endorsed. Joe does make a small royalty off the sales of the card game, but this is not a true sponsorship as Joe is a Hermit and has been working with the team responsible for having these cards released. Better safe than sorry!
