On Friday, September 13, a truck bound for the Georgia-based tabletop and video game company Trivium Studios took a turn too sharply, spilling 216,000 gaming dice onto Interstate 75 in Atlanta in what could be the biggest unintentional dice roll ever.
According to Trivium Studios community manager, speaking to Kotaku about the incident, the truck was carrying three pallets of Chessex six-sided gaming dice for use in an unannounced tabletop game. Approximately half of the trucks load wound up strewn across the busy highway on Friday afternoon. Atlanta HERO (Highway Emergency Response Operators) units helped Trivium employees clean up the mess, using brooms and shovels to salvage what they could.

Surprisingly, they rolled 216,000 box cars. The president of Chessex said no comment when he was reached for an interview.
The dice were loaded. Perhaps the driver too.
The Die is cast.

Big deal. If you get 216000 dice, making your saving throw is pretty easy.
Roll 216,000 six-sided and pick the best three for your abilities...
I got 216,000 of a kind!
Around 1960 my Father and his car pool buddy came upon an 18 wheeler overturned on a really sharp curve on the Bob Sikes Highway on Eglin.
The driver had made it out OK. The truck was loaded with eggs. The driver told them they could have all they wanted. They each found about 10 dozen unbroken ones. We had eggs just about any way you could fix them for the next few weeks.
YAHTZEE! (with infinite echoes)
While visiting friends in Atlanta years ago, they told us that something crazy every day spills from a truck on 85/285.
The dice are on the table

Some of the dice fell off the table, youre going to have to re-roll...
And somehow I would STILL fail my save!
*chuckles in Elminster*

Sometimes you gotta roll the hard six.
