On the Subject of Beanboozled Again
When a joke goes too far...
The module shows a display with 8 encrypted characters 8 there are also octagonal bean buttons also containing encrypted characters. In order to solve the module press 5 beans in the right order and at the right times.
Section 1: Decrypting the display
The display is encrypted in beanzleglyphs. Look up their corresponding base-36 character in the lookup table below.
|Beanzleglyph Lookup Table|
The message given is still encrypted. It is one of the words on page 2, however random letters were removed until the word length is 8, then it has been shifted randomly and then it has been encrypted using Spinsquare Cipher with a random coefficient array C, consisting of three coefficients ranging from 0 to 3. These values will be labeled C1, C2 and C3 respectively.
Section 1.1: Spinsquare Cipher
Look up your character to encrypt in the cipher grid (page 2) and call its position the pivot. Rotate your pivot clockwise 90 degrees around the center of the 6x6 grid an amount of times equal to C1. Split the 6x6 grid up into four 3x3 grids. Rotate your pivot clockwise 90 degrees around the center of the 3x3 grid your pivot is in an amount of times equal to C2. Split the 6x6 grid into nine 2x2 grids and rotate the pivot around the center of the 2x2 grid it is in by 90 degrees an amount of times equal to C3. Your new position is the encrypted letter.
