Yep, that's the way to do it.

For the record, the infinite series is actually very managable: in every case it boils down to SUM(6^ni) where n is the number of dice and i goes from 1 to infinity. And that's the best known infinite series there is. And then you have another number in front I didn't figure out the pattern for, and you possibly have to cut out a few middle terms.

So yeah, use any dice.
