It’s all fun and games until you die… well at least, for the immensely popular Netflix Korean series, Squid Game. In real life, this schoolyard game is really fun. Yep, this titular game does exist. So if you want to join in the fun, MINISO Australia is sharing with you the mechanics of Squid Game.

Squid Game Rules:

1. Players need to be divided into two teams: offence, the head and defense, the body.

2. Once the game begins, the defense team needs to run around on two feet within the designated shapes, while the offense team should remain outside the lines and they’re only allowed to jump on one foot.

3. If any member of the offense group cuts through the middle of both square and triangle, outpacing the defense team, the player will be given freedom to use both feet.

4. Players gather at the entrance of the squid.

5. Players who tap the small space on the head of the squid with their foot win. However, if the defense team pushes you out of the line, you lose. 

1. The Mugunghwa Flower Has Blossomed

A version of “Red Light, Green Light”, this name of the game is coined from South Korea’s national flower mugunghwa or otherwise referred to as rose of Sharon. The robot doll or the tagger in the actual game sings, while players run. The players need to stop before the tagger turns around after finishing the phrase. 

2. Ppogi

This is also known as the Dalgona challenge as it involves chiseling out shapes from a honeycomb toffee. Plucking out shapes is just as difficult in real life as it looks on Squid Game.

3. Ddakji

Ddakji is a traditional Korean game that uses folded paper tiles. It’s similar to Pogs, an American game that became popular in the 1990s except that it doesn’t involve a slammer piece.
