In addition to initially unlocking minigames, sugar lumps may also be used to refill timers in the minigames, but refilling a timer from any minigame initiates a fifteen minute cooldown for all timers.
The Garden is a complex minigame added in version 2.01, featuring various plants with a variety of passive effects or harvest effects. Some plants can even unlock new upgrades when harvested. Increasing the Farms' building level (up to level 9) increases the garden size significantly, allowing more crops to be planted. Larger quantities of Farms owned will unlock up to 5 soil types, which can affect plant growth, mutation rate and passive effect strength.
In this minigame, sugar lumps can be used to reset the plant tick and soil refill timers; additionally, plants will also spread and mutate 3 times as much during the bonus tick. It is also possible to gain one sugar lump from a certain rare plant. Alternatively, 10 sugar lumps can be earned by sacrificing 33 out of 34 seeds once all of them have been unlocked, effectively resetting the garden.
The Pantheon, added in version 2.0034, allows up to three passive effects to be activated, by slotting spirits into low-, medium- and high-tier spaces, which determine the effectiveness of their boost. Slotting a spirit costs one Worship swap. Worship swaps accrue over time at a rate dependent on how many you have, to a maximum of 3. Worship swaps can also be refilled instantly with a sugar lump.
Added in version 2.0034, the Grimoire allows the casting of spells, using a pool of mana. The size of the mana pool is affected by both the level of Wizard Towers and the amount of wizard towers currently owned, though the number of buildings is by far the greatest influence. The mana pool slowly charges up over time, but can be filled instantly using a sugar lump.
