(Nethack type ones that is)

Playing slash'em on mobile with a puny low-lvl character, I was absent-mindedly jabbing the screen to go left in a minetown shop, and managed to bump into the shopkeeper then select the 'yes' button to attack before realising. Punishment for such a stupid error should have been swift - the keeper pulled out a wand of death and zapped at me, but somehow I managed to duck both the zap AND the returning rebound.. The shopkeeper? Not so lucky at dodging. His loot set me up quite nicely for a short run down the mines before YASD caught up and put me down properly.

My luckiest moment is, when I was playing as a dwarvish valkyrie, in Sokoban 4th floor, a master lich appeared and it summoned a bunch of tough monsters, including an adult green dragon. With fortune on the Mjollnir, I finally succeeded to defeat all of them. My HP was close, it had reached only 3 points. --NDos (talk) 13:23, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

I've had several unlucky ones, but the best one that springs to mind is that I was in a shop, and the setup looked like this:

------
|    |
+@@  |
|    |
|    |
------

So I meant to type "y" to go up and left, but instead I accidentally typed "h" to take me left. So when it asked me if I wanted to attack the shopkeeper, I said "No, I want to go up and left" which means "y". So I answered "y" to the prompt to attack the shopkeeper
