I'm sitting here with 1.891 quintillion cookies in the bank. A total of 60.7 quintillion cookies baked. And I'm about to get my 199th portal.

Don't tell me about futility!

So...you can "play" and "make love" endlessly as long as you avoid working and growing up?

Sounds about right.

I think if I forfeit this game I could probably get up to that level pretty quickly considering how many heavenly chips I would garner.

At least to 200 buildings each this time. Then I'll forfeit.

I'll be honest, you'll level much quicker and get back to where you are now if you do a reset.  I've rest about 17 times since I started and I'm usually back to about where I was within 48 hours.  It just gets exponential from there.  The closest I've gotten to 200 of every building was all of them (including 300 cursors) except Antimatter Condensers and Prisms.

I'm sitting here with 280 fingers, 250 grandmas, 210 farms (I bought 10 extra to boost the finger bonus on the cheap), 200 of everything else except time machines, condensers, and prisms.

I'll have my 200th portal in an hour or so.

Notch is such a negative nihilist. If you are going to believe nothing matters then spend your time being positive and creating happiness. At least your worthless pitiful existence will be fun.

I just reset this weekend to bring my Heavenly Chip total to ~173,000. I'm making my play for 200 prisms on this go-around.

Hi, my name is offacue and I'm a chipaholic.  I've got 178K heavenly chips, 2.445 Qa cps, 18.3Sx all time baked  2.4Sx this game  150 prisms, 162 antimatter condensers, 180 time machines, 200 of everything else, 260 cursors.  Made it to 300 cursors last game.  Might quit after the bicentennial unless Ortiel comes up with some new stuff.
 
2014-05-05 12:36:33 PM
I just reset. I'm back up to 200 fingers and grandmas now. Just about to 200 farms.

Other things are slowly growing. Hoping to hit 90 quadrillion to get the kitten upgrade and kick this thing into high gear.

For now, though, I've turned the browser off so I can get some work done.

I don't think there was ever a time when Fedoras were not hated. They are almost exclusively worn by internet neckbeards with crappy personal hygiene and worse social skills who think a bit of flair is going to make them look like a rugged explorer slash sexual panther who the ladies flock to.

Except people wearing "fedoras" aren't wearing fedoras at all, they're wearing trilbies.

Fedoras are the Indiana Jones, Dick Tracy kind of hats.

Trilbies are the ones you're whining about:

Dude.  Dude?  Seriously.  Reset.

I have 698k heavenly chips, 245 sextillion baked all time, and I have never been close to being able to get 200 of everything.  By the time you hit like, 170 prisms each one costs over a sextillion.  Antimatter condensers will hit a sextillion each before you get to 200 and I _think_ maybe time machines.

According to one number cruncher the cost to get 200 of each building is just over 496 sextillion.  Which means even if I had all of the cookies I've ever forfeited I'd be a little less than halfway there.

Srsly.  Reset.

No, I think he meant fedoras. I don't think I've ever seen anyone wear a trilby in real life. I think even hipsters would cockpunch anyone wearing that.

Oh.

Are you supposed to get to the bit where you get rid of your job and decide instead to go live in a truck, get rid of the stress and stop trying to solve stuff?

I kept looking for that option but it wasn`t there.
 
2014-05-05 05:58:06 PM
I have it figured out a way to win!

Never get a job or try to create and you will live forever!

I am eternal and all I do is make love, make friends, see my friends, play and learn!

I think I`ve won!

One guy created Minecraft? He must have more money than Bill Gates by now. I wonder how much he gets from the sale of each of those $25 foam swords at Walmart? I know nothing about this game except that 1)my kids love it 2)it is more popular than Elvis, Lady Gaga and George Washington combined, and 3)it looks like an Atari 2600 game, and 4)people are freakin' nuts.
