Q. My game or puzzle is missing pieces. What do I do?

A. Don’t panic! Puzzle and game pieces are tricky critters and sometimes wander out of sight. If you believe you are missing a piece, be sure to search every nook and cranny of the room you were playing in before calling to report the piece as missing. It may be stuck in the box/packaging, dragged off by a pet or child, or snagged on a piece of clothing. We recommend giving your search a few days to see if the piece shows up somewhere unexpected.  Still no luck? We may be able to help. Please refer to our replacement parts policy below. If you have any questions, please email us: info@ugames.com  

 

Replacement Parts Policy:

  1. Name, address, and phone number/email

  2. Name of product or provide item number (located beneath logo)

  3. Batch code: this number is either etched into the box, or printed at the end of the fine print. It begins with the letter “B” followed by six digits and the month/year (this code tells us when and where a product was made, so we can address any quality control issues).

  4. Name of retailer or online vendor where the game/puzzle was purchased.

  5. Briefly describe the issue with your game/puzzle. For 3D Crystal Puzzles, please provide the piece number that is missing (use the instruction sheets provided on our website to identify the piece number).
