The Red Board is a puzzle item that Maria can find in the Born from a Wish scenario from Silent Hill 2. After climbing a ladder in the fireplace of the Baldwin Mansion living room, Maria will find herself in a secret garden. In the garden is the grave of Amy Baldwin, and next to it is the red board. The board can be used, along with three other boards, to solve the Acacia Key Puzzle on the small grave.
The metal board is colored red to represent the Crimson Ceremony book that is essential to the rebirth ritual. There is also an image of a book embossed on the board to make this more apparent.
The back of the board reads:
- "When the Crimson Words are found,
- I shall dedicate this thing.
- Oh, you Gods deep in slumber,
- Grant us fortune eternal."
