Fortune Teller

Luck is a statistic that affects many different aspects of the game, such as the drop rates of geodes and chance of getting treasure from Fishing. There are two kinds of luck: Daily Luck, which is determined by the game, and Luck Buffs gained from eating certain food.

Daily Luck

You can check your daily luck by right-clicking on the Television and selecting "Fortune Teller." The Fortune Teller will give an indication of the daily luck stat modifier.

Luck is not affected by viewing the Fortune Teller Television Program (i.e., the luck value is not neutral if the player does not view the program, the luck value remains constant regardless. The Daily Luck value does not change if the day is restarted.)

Daily Luck Effects

Daily luck affects the following:

Luck Buffs

In addition to Daily Luck, Luck Buffs gained from eating food will temporarily affect the same aspects of the game as Daily Luck, with the exception of the drop chance of Duck Feather and Rabbit's Foot. The following dishes provide a temporary luck buff:
