More about games on What Are The Games In ‘Squid Game’?
Why is it called Squid Game?
Squid game is named after the squid-like diagram usually drawn on sandy fields. Players are separated into two teams, with attackers trying to reach and dominate a “land” or home base, usually hopping on one leg out of bounds, while offense players push, pull and try to keep their opponents outside the lines.
The game appears both in the first and last episodes, with the latter in stark contrast from the cheery game childhood friends Gi-hun and Sang-woo played when their moms would call them back home for dinner. In the season finale, the pair are the only two left in the match.
Is Squid Game for real?
