Fixed Chance Phase

If you're looking for this Phase's events' flavor text, see Fixed Chance Phase (flavor text).

The Fixed Chance Phase occurs between the Roll Phase and the Effects Phase. Random event probabilities are variable. There is a large chance that no Fixed Chance event will occur, in which case the phase is invisible.

The event queue for this phase is global, though only 1 player has the event; the first eligible player to reach the Fixed Chance Phase after an event is queued will have the queued event. Currently, the only ways to queue a Fixed Chance event are with the Radio item's [Reinforcements] option or with the Spacetime Thread item. Also, only 1 event can be queued for the phase at a time; if [Reinforcements] for the Radio is used more than once before an eligible player has a Fixed Chance Phase, only 1 will ever apply.

You usually can't have a Fixed Chance event while Dead. (An interesting exception is if you die upon/after reaching a Roll Streak x# page in the Roll Phase before the Fixed Chance Phase.)

  • You've Got Da Powah- All players receive the Empowered Dice Buff.
  • Classes!- All players receive the Choose Class Neutral Effect.
  • The Hall Of Heroes- All players receive the Hall Of Heroes Neutral Effect connected to a queue for the Hall Of Heroes event. (For some reason, the Resurrection Phases are skipped on the turn a player has this event, then they go to the Hall Of Heroes event even if Dead; this only applies to the player who actually has the The Hall Of Heroes event.)
  • While most Go to event effects wear off the moment their connected events are taken from the queue, Hall Of Heroes wears off only when a Blessing is chosen in the event.

Event Phase Event Queuers[edit | edit source]

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • SPAM!- Spam windows fill the screens of all players. The first player to close all spam windows on their screen receives the Spam component of the English Breakfast; additionally, the spam windows of all other players are forced to close at this time.
  • Second Chances- All players return to space 0. According to a July 2012 News post, this event will not occur "in games with more than 5 players." According to the admin Dysprosium in April 2016, the highest space one of the game's players can be on with this event still having a chance to occur "depends on the finish line," and the event "currently doesn't occur when the finish line is 250 or more."
  • Gotta Go Fast- All players gain 1 permanent Speed.

Turn Player Affecting Events[edit | edit source]

  • HONK HONK!- You receive the Horn item.
  • Banana Peel- You receive the Banana Peel item.

  • YEEEAAAAHH!- You receive Reflective Shades.
  • Pixie- You receive the Pixie item.
  • Thieving Imp- You receive the Thieving Imp item.
  • -Overlord- - You receive the Overlord Buff. (If Wild Mode: Racing In Reverse is active, you instead receive Underlord.)
  • Death- You are killed. Most notably, you might be killed by a Stingray or Ghost. These can each be caught with the Pocket Ball item if your death is blocked, if you quickly revive, or if you catch the one that killed you while Dead with Ethereal Gloves/Ethereal Soul/Pocket Ball with Ethereal enchantment.
  • ONE IN A MILLION - You lose all of your Debuffs that are not passively generated. (Even unremovable effects can be removed. Note that the T-Rex Global Effect isn't removable despite technically being a Debuff.) Then, move to space 1,000,000, meet an alternate win condition, and have a Forced End.

Other[edit | edit source]

  • Click The Chicken- The Chicken item (normal)/Festive Chicken (Christmas) is set to appear in all players' inventories during a future Effects Phase. This Effects Phase is not determined at the time of the Click The Chicken event; rather, the game "rolls the dice" with a chance for the effect to occur every time a player has an Effects Phase until the effect occurs once.
  • Nothing occurs if a player gets this event while a previous Click The Chicken event's corresponding Chickens are still pending.
  • The Bear Is Loose!- A random player has the The Bear! event queued for their Event Phase with a 2-4 turn delay.
  • Nothing occurs if a player gets this event while any player currently has The Bear! queued.
