Probability filter: after eating the TD turkey we play the Turkey game which consists of tossing six dice. The six faces of each die are carved with the letters that spells turkey. Each combination of letters earn a different score (for example T U is 5 points, 3 Ts wipe all the points earned, etc.) with the first TURKEY being the winner. How many tosses would you need to spell TURKEY?

You would not believe how many different answer a bunch of supposedly intelligent people gave, from 6! to 6 to the 6th power. Which answer is right? Explain to me how and why, please.
