Did any of the pieces break? If not, you will be able to reassemble it without too much trouble. I asked a similar question on Nov. 18. Jaap Scherphuis gave me a great answer. Take a look at that.

i took a look, i still cant get this last piece in... i see that the odd shaped tabs all go on one corner, does it matter which corner?

No, it does not matter which of the eight corner pieces gets the funny tabs.

The only other trick is to reassemble all the corners and tabs except the last corner piece. You slide the last piece onto the puzzle so that 2 of the 3 connecting edges are engaged. Then you hold the puzzle firmly and twist half of the puzzle one quarter turn so that the last connecting edge engages. (You are twisting the puzzle along the same plane as the edge you are trying to engage.)

I hope this helps. It is not easy for me to describe this.
