Puzzle

US Version

The diagram that little guy's thinking about has been folded into eight tiny cubes, which in turn have been combined to build a larger cube. One of the eight small cubes has had the letter on each of its faces erased. The big cube is constructed in such a way that each cube's face that isn't visible is pressed against the face of another cube containing the same letter.

Knowing this, can you figure out what letter belongs on the face the arrow is pointing to? Your answer will be one letter, A through F.

UK Version

Eight cubes have been created based on the flat plan shown below. These have been combined to build a larger cube. One of the eight small cubes has had the letters on each of its faces erased.

Knowing this, can you work out what letter belongs on the face the arrow is pointing to? Your answer will be one letter, from A to F.
