Squid Game: The Trials Brings the Challenges to Life in Los Angeles

John Nguyen

Squid Game became a global phenomenon when it premiered on Netflix in 2021. It spawned a reality competition series, Squid Game: The Challenge, and creator and showrunner Hwang Dong-hyuk is busy working on the sequel to the scripted drama. Fans of the shows will get the chance to experience the world of Squid Game in real life with Squid Game: The Trials from Netflix.

We had the chance to embark on the immersive world of Squid Game. There were plenty of games including challenges from the series and the reality competition like crossing the glass bridge, playing marbles, Battleship-inspired combat, and the iconic Red Light, Green Light game.

If you’re worried about your life, don’t sweat because Squid Game: The Trials is based on points, and you’ll get to keep on playing until the end challenge. The top players with the most points will get to continue in the finale, with the eliminated players surrounding the center stage to see who becomes the final winner.
