** Godzamok was hit very hard in v2.0042. Originally it was a 3/2/1% bonus to clicking per building you sell, for the next 10 seconds, letting you get crazy gains by selling all of your cursors and farms. Now it's just a 1%/0.5%/0.25% bonus, meaning that it's a third or a fourth as effective as it used to be depending on which worship slot it's in. Despite that, it's STILL an extremely potent spirit to use for active play, as the short-term gains it can bring during a Click Frenzy or Elder Frenzy are unrivaled.

* OverlyLongGag: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by the achievement you get from having a Cookies Per Second of 10 quintillion.
--> ''There's really no hard limit to how long these achievement names can be and to be quite honest I'm rather curious to see how far we can go.''
--> ''Adolphus W. Green (1844-1917) started as the Principal of the Groton School in 1864. By 1865, he became second assistant librarian at the New York Mercantile Library; from 1867 to 1869, he was promoted to full librarian. From 1869 to 1873, he worked for Evarts, Southmayd & Choate, a law firm co-founded by William M. Evarts, Charles Ferdinand Southmayd and Joseph Hodges Choate. He was admitted to the New York State Bar Association in 1873.''
--> ''Anyway, how's your day been? I am wondering if you read all this.''


Added DiffLines:

** 2.0042 adds Chancemakers, as well as a new set of achievements which require 350 of each building.


Added DiffLines:

** Gambler's Fever Dream is a literal Random Effect Spell. It casts a random spell for half its magic cost, with twice the chance of backfiring. While this may seem useless, it is an extremely important spell in [[RandomNumberGod RNG]] manipulation to get more useful effects out of important spells like Force the Hand of Fate (which is itself a Random Effect Spell).


Added DiffLines:

** [[RandomEffectSpell Force the Hand of Fate]]'s outcome is consistent when you reload your save. If you know this, you can save the game, cast the spell to see what effect you get, then reload, knowing that the next time you cast the spell, you'll get the same outcome.

** Lampshaded with the Wrath Cookie result "Cursed Finger" - while it's active, normal production is set to ''zero'' [=CpS=]... however, for the subsequent time frame (default is 10 seconds), each click will give the player cookies equal to what would ordinarily be earned in that time frame. Even one click will make the player break even; a sufficiently fast player will produce a couple hours of production in a very rapid span of time.
** The effect of a backfired Stretch Time is to reduce the length of all current timers by 20% (to a maximum of 10 minutes). This includes timers for debuffs as well - in particular, a backfire of Diminish Ineptitude makes Stretch Time backfire 75% of the time, and the Stretch Time backfire reduces the timer of a backfired Diminish Ineptitude by 2 minutes.


Added DiffLines:

** One that requires a bit of luck involves setting up as of the launch of the grimoire is taking advantage of the spell Conjure Baked Goods. If it works correctly, it essentially acts like getting two "Lucky" bonuses at once, with a similar limitation of maxing out at 15% of the current banked cookies. Due to the fact that it can be triggered at any time, this means that it can be comboed with "Frenzy" plus a building bonus, or even an Elder Frenzy. There's a bit of a risk in that a backfire of Conjure Baked Goods functions as a double-effect "Ruin" plus "Clot," but the risk of backfire can be considerably mitigated with Diminish Ineptitude.

* PunnyName: All of the cookie gods in the temples' Pantheon have names that are puns, like the cow-headed Mokalsium ("More Calcium") who powers up the bonuses you get from milk, or ''Rigid''el the God of Order.

** A lengthy example with the increasingly fantastical cookie-generation devices: first you can buy extra mouse cursors, then cookie-baking grandmas, followed by cookie farms, factories, mines, and banks. After that, it gets weirder: ancient cookie temples, cookie-wizards, rocketships to the cookie planet, alchemy labs (to turn gold into cookies), portals to the Cookieverse, time machines, and antimatter condensers. And the final, most powerful cookie constructor is... a prism. Maybe the developer is a Music/PinkFloyd fan.

** During Easter, you can get a wide variety of eggs. One of them is (what else?) a Cookie Egg. The flavour text indicates "The shell appears to be chipped." This could be taken one of two ways - The shell's taken a bit of damage, or that it has chocolate chips.

** Another subversion comes with active play - one bonus that can appear on a golden or wrath cookie is to give a bonus to both production and clicking equal to +10% for each of a particular building that the player can buy. Due to how much cheaper earlier buildings are, the bonus percentage will be distinctly higher for Farms or Mines versus Antimatter Condensers or Prisms if the cheaper buildings haven't been totally neglected.



** Not like regular golden cookies don't have their own combo. Once again, there isn't much to do but cross your fingers, pray to the RandomNumberGod and try to sync them so as to make the most of your time, and this time, there's the added difficulty of having baked enough cookies through clicking, and having to click as fast as you can for a full 26 seconds, but if you get a Frenzy, have bought the click-boosting mouse upgrades, and manage to get a Clicking Frenzy while the original's still going on, you can rack up positively gigantic amounts of cookies.

Later updates add the building bonuses, which also can combo with Frenzy, and lasts for over a minute with all the golden cookie upgrades. Get lucky and nail a High Five (+10% [=CpS=] for each cursor owned) after some time playing, and even an Elder Frenzy will look quaint in its production. During the Christmas season, these can also modify reindeer, plus have a wider timing window to make the setup a bit more forgiving than the Eldeer setup.



* LuckySeven: Most things relative to Golden Cookies involves numbers with several 7s in sequence. In contrast, the Red Cookies involve [[NumberOfTheBeast 6s in sequence]].

There are three very powerful ascension upgrades that aren't even visible for purchase unless the player's Heavenly chip count ends in 7, 777, or 777,777.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Once you have the "Just Wrong" achievement from selling a Grandma, they start to say a lot of openly hostile or cryptic things. One quote in particular is relevant here - [[spoiler: "It thought we would go away by selling us. How quaint.".]] As it turns out, you were right, as this gives a strange, backhanded hint towards a different method of rectifying a late-game event; [[spoiler: While the usefulness of doing so is questionable, you can stop the Grandmapocalypse by selling ALL of your Grandmas. Turns out that selling them DID make them go away.]]
