The Grimoire is a minigame added on July 15 2017, Version 2.0034. It is unlocked by spending one sugar lump to upgrade Wizard Towers to level 1.

It has several spells that can be cast:

Diminish Ineptitude 5 magic +20% of max magic 15% Spells backfire 10 times less for the next 5 minutes. Spells backfire 5 times more for the next 10 minutes.

Each spell costs magic to use. Your maximum amount of magic varies depending on your amount of wizard towers, and their level. Magic refills over time. The lower your magic meter, the slower it refills.

Selling wizard towers will reduce maximum mana, but not current mana if it is lower than the new reduced maximum mana. This is allowing to cast Force the Hand of Fate once, then selling wizard towers to reduce the cost of a second cast. At 100 magic / 100 magic max, the first Force spell would cost 70 magic, letting 30 magic available. Selling towers to reduce magic max to 33, will make the cost of a second Force spell to go down to 30 magic, effectively allowing a double cast without the use of a sugar lump.

Outcome of Force the Hand of Fate Edit

The mechanism of this spell follows random list mechanism. However there is no "remove the last effect from the list" rule which makes the calculation simpler (primitive probability is enough).

For golden cookie, the rules are:

  • Add Frenzy and Lucky to a pool.
  • If there is no Dragonflight buff active, add Click Frenzy.
  • 10% chance to add Chain, Storm and Blab to the pool.
  • 25% chance to add Building Special, if the you owned more than or equal to 10 total building.
    • For all building of which number more or equal to 10, choose one and buff according the chosen building's amount. If no building has such quantity, choose Frenzy.
  • 15% chance to replace the pool with Storm Drop.
  • 0.01% chance to add Free Sugar Lump to the pool.
  • Pick a random effect from the pool.

In following we assume at least one building's number is more or equal to 10.

The final results are:

No Dragonflight buff

For wrath cookie (backfire), the rules are:

  • Add Clot and Ruin to a pool.
  • 10% chance to add Cursed Finger and Elder Frenzy to the pool.
  • 0.3% chance to add Free Sugar Lump to the pool.
  • 10% chance to replace the pool with Blab.
  • Pick a random effect from the pool.

Manipulation Edit

Oddly enough, the seed used to determine the outcome of casting a spell is stored in your save-file as for version v2.0042. This means that if you save the game, cast a spell, re-load the game, and cast the same spell, the outcome will be the same. This means that you can check in advance to see whether a spell will have a favorable outcome, and then use that spell at a later time with predictable results. One application of this is using Force the Hand of Fate to confirm either a Click Frenzy, or Elder Frenzy cookie will be generated and use that during a Frenzy, Building Special or/and Dragonflight buff.
