The proper calculation of how many boards is beyond my abilities. Each of 25 cubes presents any of 6 faces. For each combination of 25 faces there are four rotations and six reflections that are identical (this is my /10) for purposes of playing. Am I at least on the right track? :)

this is a hard calculation because it depends on what is on each cube. if they were all As only one board. Some operations will leave the exactly the same board depending on how many repeated letters are down, so you cant discount the same as when the letters are all different. when they are all different, suppose the board has A in the top left corner. that can go at any corner, 4 places. then its top right neighbour can go in two places to its left or its right. then the other two are determined.
so there are 8 reorientations that dont change the board.
(when all the letters are different.
