# The best possible Star Wars dice roll ever

Never tell me the odds.

I forgot what the roll was for, but it doesn’t matter. We won.

Just to put into perspective how difficult it would be to achieve this kind of roll:

The purple dice are bad. They’re 8-sided dice, and only one side is blank (the best possible result on these dice, because that essentially means “nothing bad happens”).

The yellow dice are good. They’re 12-sided dice, and the icon you see there is “Triumph.” The actual definition of a Triumph in the rulebook is as follows:

A Triumph symbol has two effects. First, each Triumph counts as one Success. Second, a Triumph result indicates an unexpected boon or significantly beneficial effect related to the task.

So it’s like rolling a natural 20 on a regular icosahedron, except easier because there’s a 1/12 chance to score it instead of 1/20. But two of them consecutively?

Chances of a double blank on the challenge dice? 1/64.

The chances of coming up double Triumph? 1/144.

How about both happening at the same time on the same roll? 1/9216, or **0.0108506944444%.**

Here’s an idea of what else has roughly a 0.01% chance of happening:

- Chance of forging a Precursor weapon in Guild Wars 2
- Chance of being diagnosed with Williams Syndrome
- Chance of finding a 4-leaf clover on the first try
- Chance of getting a Dead Man’s Hand on a 7 card draw
- Chance of getting a 4-of-a-kind on the flop
- Chance of having a lawyer in China
- Chance of getting injured by your toilet this year
- Chance of condom failure
- Chance of dying from intentional self harm
- Chance of firing two proton torpedoes from a standard T-65 X-Wing Starfighter into a 2-meter wide thermal exhaust port without the assistance of a targeting computer

GM, we all should’ve earned free XP from becoming instantly enlightened after witnessing such a miraculous roll.
