What procedure do you follow when a dice roll goes off the table and onto the floor?

(a) Look for the dice on the floor and use whatever result is evident.
(b) Disqualify the roll. Retrieve the dice and roll again.
(c) Allow the player to roll again, but warn them the next time it happens, they lose their turn.
(d) This never happens, so the question is irrelevant.
(e) _____________________________________________.

(b) Disqualify the roll. Retrieve the dice and roll again.
(e) Openly mock them if it happens again.

we use a box cover from the game; all dice must be rolled in the box

B. We use a dice tray with high walls so this rarely happens.

(b) Disqualify the roll. Retrieve the dice and roll again*

* but use a different set of dice as the ones that went off the table are now unlucky (yes, I have seen this).

Dice on the floor never count, for us, but we still laugh if it was a good roll.
