    Each roll of an unbiased die is an independent event. The total number of outcomes of six consecutive rolls is 6^6. The probability of one specific outcome is 1/6^6

    The outcomes are not connected. So the probability is 1/6, every time. You need to multiply the probabilities.

    No, it's \[\left( \frac{ 1 }{ 6 } \right)^6=\frac{ 1 }{ 6^6 }=\frac{ 1 }{ 46656 }\]
