1s and 6s explode. My buddy rolled 4 6s and 4 1s before finally rolling a 4. It was the craziest streak of dice luck I've ever seen.

By my calculations (.33^8), the odds of this happening are .0014%

Needless to say, the threat card's battle score of 40 handily beat the player.

One day I played the original Talisman, I needed to travel to a specific space, but I kept rolling the same combination, no matter how I moved (left or right) I always ended on the same spaces and never reached that particular place I needed to go for the whole game.

That's not a mathematical impossibility. That's TALISMAN.

Sounds like a tagline for the box for the next edition.

Last game I was a victim of such an impossibility also. Fighting against a creature and only a exploding dice, followed by another exploding dice could beat me.

THREE TURNS IN A ROW I WAS BEATEN UP!!!!

And the third time by three sixes!!

angry

But the rest of my group had a good laugh.

Is 1`s explode a variant you use or have I missed (yet another thing) in the rulebook?

One or two of the Threat cards have special text which let them "explode" on 1s and 6s. The enemies of Him on Earth are many and devious.
