Tasks / The Sweet Cheat Gone

This task is retired.


Please read and comment if anything is unclear. You may also download these instructions, plus a map of the game area.

You must register in groups of 5 or less. Each member of your group will be assigned to either prosecution or defense. Note: your role is secret and should not be revealed to fellow players (unless it is your strategy to do so). The prosecution will attempt to prove the defendant’s guilt; the defense will attempt to prove the defendant’s innocence.

1. With your group, collect as many unique pieces of photographic evidence as you can.
2. Individually, render inadmissible any evidence that doesn’t support your side. For instance, if you’re a prosecutor you’ll want to render innocence evidence inadmissible.

Photographic evidence is hidden in various locations around the city. Some pieces of evidence contain clues which will lead to other locations. Use these clues and the map provided to find all the locations in the game. Each piece of evidence you find will point to either innocence or guilt, as indicated by the following symbols:

At the end of the game we will tally two scores: your group’s score, and an overall prosecution and defense score.

Group Score: Your group receives one point for each unique piece of evidence (photograph) collected. Your group will not receive points for any duplicate photos. We have a limited number of photos, so please take only one of each photo. The group with the most points at the end wins.

Prosecution And Defense Score: When your group reaches the final checkpoint we will count the total number of innocent and guilty images you have collected. If your group has more innocent images than guilty images, your group’s vote will be counted as innocent. If your group has more guilty images than innocent images, your group’s vote will be guilty. In the event of a tie, your group’s vote will be determined by a real lawsuit. By tallying the group votes in this structural-legal manner we will determine, beyond a shadow of a reasonable doubt, the verdict, and thus the always-already inescapable fate of our heroine.

Scattered throughout the map are Notaries capable of rendering your evidence inadmissible. Inadmissible evidence will still count to your group’s score, but will no longer count towards your group’s vote of innocent or guilty. Rendering evidence inadmissible is very important, as it allows you to build your case for prosecution or defense without destroying evidence that would contribute to your group’s score. Before rendering evidence inadmissible, the notary will ask if there are any objections from those present. If there are no objections, the evidence will be rendered inadmissible. Thus, a visit to the notary is best done in secret. One notary is above the freeway, one is by a hospital, and one is at the final checkpoint.

At some locations you will find friendly SFZero agents who will give you pieces of evidence or clues to help you find all the locations. You may also encounter enemy SFZero agents who, if they catch (tag) you, have the power to destroy your evidence or delay your progress. If you are caught by enemy agents you are required to do whatever they ask of you. Enemy agents will wear masks.

All teams must bring their evidence to the end point by 12:00. Locations will be unmanned after 11:00, at which point the only active notary will be at the end point.

The Sweet Cheat Gone ends with a party on Terry Francois Blvd. You can find the exact location of the party and more specific directions on your map. Feel free to show up at the party whenever you like, and to invite friends. We’ll be offering drinks in exchange for a reasonable donation (so bring some cash).

No cars or taxis - bikes, feet, and public transportation are OK.
No player killing.

I've seen players with the guild icon before, but I was never able to figure out what it meant. I still don't think i've seen somebody with an innocent one

Maybe if the icons linked to this page more people would understand what they meant?

What a night! I had fun setting up the evidence party booth. I set up the evidence party booth at "Water Cove Park" (at the end of 24th st). Our evidence booth had it all: bangin' house music, some fine whiskey, delicious JUMEX juice cans, and of...

Setup Arrived at the warehouse with Myndi and Ian ready to get to work: there was a lot of cleaning to be done. After moving refrigerators and ovens and rusted unicycles around the warehouse, we took some time to explore. The Bay here was beautiful,...

My husband and I have lived together in the Bay Area for six years, and without a doubt, this was our most memorable night in the city yet. It was that amazing. Much awe, love, respect and good karma to SF0 puppet masters and plants who made SOMA, t...

The Tale of Team Camel The night is dark and streaked with filthy rain when we hit the end of Market. The ferry building juts into the air like an obscene altar to alternative transportation. The thick night is sodden with the rain, and the aroma of...

Team Lovecats: Jason: I showed up close to 7pm and given that the only ones I saw were Ian, Sean, Sam, Jackie, Aaron and Lowteck, I was a little worried the game would be called on account of rain, despite the "rain or shine" notice on the site. ...

I didn't really play the Sweet Cheat Gone; mostly I helped with logistical stuff, which involved doing things like transporting the suspect from her super-top-secret location to the party and bringing Sam a Giant Sandwich. Also, I got the photos and ...

Devin, Callous and Caren ran around San Francisco in the pouring rain under the pseudonym of "Soggy Sally" to play Sweet Cheat Gone. We collected 14 pieces of evidence, invalidating all 10 innocent pieces to put in our guilty vote. (Sorry Cal, for ge...
