  • 1. SPYGAME
    Introducing New Gaming @ foursquare
    1
  • 2. Overview
    About SpyGame
    Foursqaure SpyGame is a new game where Foursquare users compete with each other by searching for secret intelligence messages, unlocking special power badges, and stealing each others’ achievements.
    After check-ins, players can search for Intelligence Messages in the form of instructions to Secret Codes and promotional offers from various venues.
    Secret Codes are collected in the form of 9-digit texts on the attachable stickers.
    When players insert the exact code, one SPY Mission is completed and the player receives a Mission badge.
    When a certain number of Missions is completed, a single-use power badge is unlocked randomly.
    With the single-use POWER badge, players can steal other players’ badges. In addition, one badge allows a player to “pose” as a venue Mayor if the actual Mayor has not checked in.

  • 44. Screen Mock-ups
    Venue List
    • After work, Chuck walked around downtown and found that his favorite bar, P.J.’s Pub offers new SpyGame activity. He could see the “SPYING” indication on places list or venue screen. He can check the detail of the spying mission by tapping the “SPYING HERE” button, but cannot submit the Secret Code without check-in. Chuck decided to go to the place, check in, and start to play this.

    • By entering the secret code, Chuck got a Mission badge. Also, he showed this Mission screen to the bartender to get a free pint of beer. On the screen, he checked his progress towards next Power badge (required of one more mission) and the Power badges he had, which enable him to steal other users’ achievements. He tapped the “Imposter” Power badge icon to see the details.

    • Each Power badge has unique in-game function, so Chuck checked the detail about “Imposter” Power badge. With “Imposter” badge, he can choose one of the nearby Mayors and steal his/her Mayorship temporarily. Every Power badge is one-time usable. Chuck chose Jack S., the Mayor of P.J.’s Pub, and used the “Imposter” Power badge.

    • Finally, Chuck stole the Mayorship of P.J.’s Pub from Jack S., but it’s only for 24 hours. Also, Chuck lost the “Imposter” Power badge after using it. He hopes to unlock it later after he completes another mission by pursuing Spy game. Because he enjoyed the activity, Chuck is going to share the tip about the Spying offer from P.J.’s Pub with other Foursquare spy users.
