There is a word on the Cipherboard. Obviously, it's the wrong word.

I need a hint, and only a hint. Vaguer the better.

How do you enter guesses and things? I can't even figure that out.

It looks like a Ouija board. I'm trying not to give out too many clues/spoilers, myself XD

I got it.

And for those looking for the answer, look up Caesar cipher

I have an iPad 1 & am using the iPhone version. I can't get anything rearranged or moved on the board. Any help on how to input the correct word is appreciated.

You don't input the correct word there, as far as I can tell, the board has no interactivity itself.

I used a piece of paper. Write down the letters.
After figuring out the code. Find the lock and enter the code in.

Have a happy vacance.

You don't rearrange things on the actual board, I don't think.  When you back away from the box so you can see the whole room, on the right side of the screen, there is a door with a lock on it (the same kind of lock from the first part of the mission).  That's what you use to enter guesses.

its a replacement cypher... the letters in the archs represent the letters in the alphabet.  you can substitute x for y or y for x.  try both ways, the correct answer is a word
