Did you guys all get them online or can they be found somewhere like Target or Wal-Mart? I want to get one this weekend, so I if I can find one I'll map it out.

Okay, so I solved it. I cheated, but I solved it. I looked at the two pictures on this website and used some deductive reasoning to piece the thing together. I hate the Tetris Cube. My roommates and I have been going insane for the past couple days.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

does yours look like that picture (the colors)? or is it red/yellow/blue?
also, is yours the mini or normal version? as in, does the package say 9,839 solutions? or over 14,000 solutions?

Mine is red/yellow/blue. But the colors correspond to the ones in that picture. I guess it's the mini one because it's 9,839. It's basically exactly the cube pictured but different colors. That's why using the picture to cheat worked so well. It's still confusing but it's possible.

Hahaha, glad we could finally shut the door on this case, destro.

I'm thinking about maybe making a Google Sketchup design showing how each piece fits into place. If I do that, I'll upload it in this thread so people can look at it in the future.
