Easter is a seasonal event in Cookie Clicker. It was added on May 18, 2014, with the 1.0464 update.

Since the 1.0466 update, Easter starts automatically and lasts from 7 days before Easter (Palm Sunday) to Easter itself (Resurrection Sunday).

Easter can also be activated by purchasing the Upgrade "Bunny biscuit", which will launch it for 24 hours.

The Bunny Biscuit Upgrade becomes available after unlocking the "Season switcher",

The upgrade is repeatable, but it gets more expensive each time it is bought. When activated, It cancels any other seasonal event.

This season is one of two seasons to have its own Grandma form, the Bunny Grandma. Bunny Grandma

UpgradesEdit

Here is a list of the 20 Upgrades that are from the Easter Season. All upgrades are egg/larvae based in theme and can be unlocked randomly when clicking a Golden Cookie, Wrath Cookie, or popping a wrinkler. The price of purchasing each egg goes up based on the number of eggs purchased so far (E in the chart below).

  1. Upgrades which lower the cost of upgrades stack multiplicatively, not additively. That is, if you have 3 of them which reduce the cost of upgrades by 5%, 2% and 1% then the final cost of an upgrade is (original cost) * 0.95 * 0.98 * 0.99.

Unlocking EggsEdit

Eggs are unlocked randomly during the Easter season by either popping wrinklers or clicking Golden/Wrath Cookies. The base fail rate to unlock an egg from a Golden/Wrath Cookie is 90% (0.9), while the base fail rate for a wrinkler is 98% (0.98). There are many factors that can reduce the fail rate.

factor
Hide & seek champion 0.7
Omelette 0.9
Starspawn 0.9
Selebrak, Spirit of Festivities 0.9/0.95/0.97 (Diamond/Ruby/Jade)
Santa's Bottomless Bag 1/1.1=0.909091
Mind Over Matter 1/1.25=0.8
Green yeast digestives 1/1.03=0.970874
Garden plants (mature, dirt) 1/(1+0.01G+0.01S+0.03K)
G = # of Green Rot
S = # of Shimmerlily
K = # of Keenmoss

For example, if you pop a Golden cookie and you have Omelette, Starspawn, Santa's Bottomless Bag and Mind Over Matter, the fail rate is

$ f=0.9*0.9/1.25/1.1\approx 0.589091 $

You can cheat a bit with eggs (and other rare wrinkler's drops). The thing is - if you pop a wrinkler and reload the page without saving - the wrinkler is back. So you can save the game, pop your wrinklers and if they drop nothing - reload the page. Repeat till they drop something.

Egg Unlock ProbabilitiesEdit

When an egg is generated, there is a 10% chance for it to be a rare egg, otherwise it is a common egg.

If the generated egg has already been unlocked, then a second egg is generated. This reduces, but does not nullify, the effects of already having a number of eggs on your chances of finding new eggs. Having more eggs reduces the chance of you finding other eggs quadratically.

The probabilities of generating a new egg, a common egg, any rare egg, or a specific rare egg (e.g. omelette) can be calculated using the following formulas, where n is the number of normal eggs already unlocked, and r is the number of rare eggs already unlocked:

  • Pr(new egg)=$ 1-(\frac{6n+r}{80})^2 $=$ 1-\frac{9n^2}{1600}-\frac{3nr}{1600}-\frac{r^2}{6400} $=$ 1 -0.005625 n^2-0.001875 n r-0.00015625 r^2 $

Average Unlock TimeEdit

If we unlock easter eggs using only Golden Cookies, the average number of Golden Cookie clicks required to unlock all easter eggs can be calculated. The calculation includes the effects of unlocking the Omelette egg (whenever it spawns naturally). Therefore, please ignore omelette factor when calculate the fail rate in this section.

The result curve is very similar to Log-normal distribution. For each fail rate we may fit the probability curve to Log-normal distribution to find the parameter μ and σ. Then we can use the formula on Wikipedia to obtain the probability we want.

For example, at fail rate 0.9, if you clicked or popped 753 objects, then there is 50% change to collect all Easter eggs.

Cookie Production Global MultiplierEdit

The cookie production global multiplier that many of the eggs modify is essentially another form of cookie multiplier, but it applies separately in the process(usually to smaller effect than +1% cookie multiplier would).

The final CpS formula is essentially: CpS * Cookie Multiplier (cookie types, Heavenly Chips, frenzy/elder frenzy bonus/clot penalties, etc.) * Global Multiplier

For example, if you have some cookie types and kitten bonuses totaling a 1000% cookie multiplier, and a base CpS of 10,000, giving you a total income of 100,000 cookies per second, and you unlocked two common eggs, your new total CpS would be 102,000 (10,000 * 10 * 1.02). If you then unlocked another kitten upgrade increasing your base cookie multiplier to 1500%, your income would increase to 153,000 (10,000 * 15 * 1.02)

AchievementsEdit

List of known achievements that can be earned during the Easter season.

Icon Name Description ID 
Chicken egg v15 The hunt is on Unlock 1 egg. 166
Quail egg v15 Egging on Unlock 7 eggs. 167
Cassowary egg v15 Mass Easteria Unlock 14 eggs. 168
Golden goose egg v15 Hide & seek champion Unlock all the eggs.
Owning this achievement makes eggs drop more frequently in future playthroughs.

Note: The eggs only need to be 'found' for the achievements to be earned, they do not need to be purchased. While this may not matter since most eggs will end up being purchased, it is handy to know that situationally functional eggs like the Chocolate Egg, Century Egg and "egg" do not have to be purchased for the achievement.

TriviaEdit

  • The description of the upgrade "Duck Egg" is a reference to a popular YouTube video, "The Duck Song."
  • The omelette's flavor text is a reference to the "omelette du fromage" episode of Dexter's Laboratory.
  • The salmon roe flavor text is a reference to a song in the anime Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
  • The Century egg is an ingredient in Chinese cuisine.
  • The Shark egg's description is from the thoughts of sharks in one of Orteil's other games, Nested. It is possibly also a reference to the sharks from the Pixar film "Finding Nemo".
  • The Bunny Grandma bears a striking resemblance to Frank, a character from the 2001 film 'Donnie Darko'.
  • The robin egg's flavor text is a reference to the catchphrase of Robin from the 1960s Batman TV Series.
  • The Golden Goose Egg's flavor text is a reference to Jack and the Beanstalk, as well as a related idiom: "killing the goose that laid the golden eggs."
  • The Bunny biscuit text is a reference to one of the rabbit myths told in Watership down.
  • The "egg" bears a strong resemblance to Yoshi's eggs from Super Mario World and a normal Pokémon egg from the game series "Pokémon". It may also be a reference to the glitch pokemon "Egg". This pattern is also similar to a default spawn egg from Minecraft.
  • Orteil said that the flavor text for "egg" is neither a pun nor a reference. However, in French, "an egg" is pronounced "un œuf" which sounds exactly like "neuf" = 9.
  • Mass Easteria is a reference to the French band Mass Hysteria.
  • Golden/Wrath cookies from a Cookie Storm still can unlock eggs.
