EDIT: Yep, there goes the trophy after ending.
I managed to get Secret Handshake and Curse the Luck on the same playthrough no problem. It was easy. You can't do Secret Handshake and Doppel Fluch at the same time, though, because you need to have Max turned into the cow to get into Kringle's room, which also puts one of the curses on Jurgen.
But to get Secret Handshake and Curse the Luck in one run, that's simple. Just proceed as normal, but don't send Jurgen to the sarcophagus until the end. Make sure you see Nefertiti giving Jurgen the note, then go into his room while he's away in the mole's room and get the note and look at the idol in his closet. From there, give the note to Nefertiti's dad so Max get turned into a cow (curse #1) and milk him. Go to Kringle's room from there and check his trunk to see the note. Then go back to the car with Jurgen and the moles. You will probably see Jurgen to back into the mole's room again, so enter the mole room to make him go back to his own. Then knock on his door, talk to him, and pick the Yog Soggoth option. Bam, trophy.
You play reel 2 as normal (getting cursed 3 times, bringing the total # of courses on you to 4), and then go back to reel 3 and tell Nefertiti's dad she has a crush on you to get the Sexo Rejecto Hex again (curse 5). Then just complete reel 3 as you normally would. Complete reel 1 if you didn't yet, and when you have only reel 4 left, bam, Curse the Luck trophy.
So, to recap, you can get Curse the Luck and Secret Handshake in one run, but you will miss Doppel Fluch if you get Secret Handshake.
Yeah, using the cookies works, but how you're really meant to go through is like this:
If you aren't cursed with the bad luck curse, you can just walk on through unharmed.
If you are cursed, throw the Sammun Mak bust through the door. This slices the bust in half and also breaks the trap, allowing you to get through the door unharmed even if you are still cursed.
