:cry: i broke it during a pop, when I forced it and snapped it in half. It was one of the more fragile pieces, and though I'm not sure of the name of it, if you were to look at the 3x3 center of it, it would be one of the corners. (inner-inner corners?)

Does anyone know the easiest way to get a replacement? Would Mr. Verdes replace it, or would I have to get it by some other means (eg. having it cast)?

I'd be grateful for any advice that you can give me. :D

Kapusta, if you don't mind, I'm gonna post a question about the v-cube here too.
one of the center-caps popped off of my 7x7 and every time I stick it back on, it pops off again. Can I just superglue it back on or will that hinder movement?

cut a piece of paper so that it is just bigger than the hole that the center cap goes in so that it is a tighter fit.

I've discovered double sided sticky tape! That works great for pieces that fall out, i.e. caps! No glue mess anywhere, and it doesn't change the color of the black cubes like the superglue sometimes does.

If you ordered your cube more than three months ago (or is it 30 days?), v-cubes won't help you. Recently, my v-cube 6 core snapped and they wouldn't replace it.
