so I got a sudoku cube with my VIP cubes. and I accidentally dropped it. onto carpeting. I noticed that one of the balls, a piece got dislodged. I can see I need to put the tab in to the hole on the...anchor piece? the thing the ball is on...and I see the other hole I need to slot a tab into, and I can't figure out how to get the piece back in. I don't want to force it, but I'm not sure how to do it. I tried to reassemble the piece for nearly a half hour with no luck. I got the other two parts apart a bit, but couldn't get the loose piece back in place.

I am guessing pictures are really going to help out here.

I managed to fix the corner piece, and set about solving it. it's more like figuring out the right patterns of where pieces go, than just sides. there's center-edge-corner for six colors, three edges for two colors, and two corners for the last color. I highly recommend the puzzle, except for random popping out, which I'm surprised it happened in the first place.
