Probability Question

This is a question to test primarily your intuition, but there's also a mathematical component.

You're going to roll a pair of standard craps dice. How many times do you have to roll them before you have more than a 50% chance of having seen double sixes during the sequence?

Without doing the math, what's the answer?

If you feel like doing the math now, go ahead. Now what's the answer?
