Re: Clicking, so much clicking....end the pain.
i had the same thought, but it doesn't take too long before it becomes self-playing and it's not really much of a time sink at all.

it's not 'pointless', the flavour text in the upgrades etc. is the main hook to get you playing and keep doing so
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

I think if you don't actively watch for the red cookies (and then get really lucky), it will take roughly three weeks to get everything.

hint: grandmas will be better than everything up to portals when upgraded.

though apparently they also rebel or something, hasn't happened yet but that may **** you up if you've got a lot of them.

Definitely don't get more than 150 grandmas (100 might be the magic number).  They'll never pay for themselves after that.

Three more portals, forty five more time machines, and thirty five more cursors till I can call it good on those achievements
"No"

Sweet. I've got 10 portals, 35 time machines, and 40 cursors to go. Except for the hidden achievements.

That's nice ... I already had 150 of them when I read this :P

Do the red cookies have any positive effects? So far I've only had production halved.

EDIT - nvm, just had a regular bonus.

I made a spreadsheet.  At my current numbers of all the things, grandmas are the 3rd fastest to break even with 150 of them.  Ahead of them is time machines at 58 owned and portals at 77 owned.  The cursor (at 155 owned) is only about 2x longer to break even than grandma, and everything else not mentioned is in the neighborhood of 10-15x longer at 100 owned.

Red cookies are more... random than the standard brown ones. Sometimes, you can get clots or ruin, and sometimes "elder frenzy" - a x666 bonus for 6 seconds.

Now, what should I do? I'm at a point where it will take almost 99 hours to earn the next cookie upgrade at the current rate, my next time machine will cost about 2 trillion, cursors no longer return investment so are only good for the achievement. The only plausible upgrade is
Spoiler:
"Elder Pact" which frightens me a bit. It's even got a note saying "this is a bad idea"

Re: Clicking, so much clicking....end the pain.
There are no absolute negative contributors in this game.  It can just take a REALLY damn long time to see the return. 

It looks like the gold cookies are always positive, and the red ones have a bit higher chance of being negative than positive.  I'm pretty sure you still come out ahead by clicking all of them though.

Red cookies have a much higher chance of starting a cookie chain, which will net you over seven trillion cookies.

Spoiler:
Getting Elder Pact will make it to where you only get red cookies, and will give you access a new achievement (more milk for the cats); nothing bad actually happens.

cookie chains go for a random number of clicks.  unless i'm completely blind.  i've had two.  one went to 666,666, and the other just to 666.

I've gotten four chains, only one of which terminated before reaching 6,666,666,666,666 cookies.

I think the longer it goes, the less chance of it failing.
