From social media filters to Roblox mini-games, here are some ways you can make yourself feel like a participant in Squid Game.
With Netflix’s latest Korean series Squid Game exploding in popularity, if you haven’t watched the show yet, you have probably at least seen posts about the show all over social media.
You’re probably already familiar with the gist of the show, where participants compete in games from their childhood to win money. Those who lost are eliminated and killed.
The show’s popularity meant that there has been an influx of games and filters online where you can “play” the games in Squid Game. Thankfully, failure of completion will not result in any real harm placed upon you!
One of the games in Squid Game includes the honeycomb challenge where contestants have to separate a shape embedded in Dalgona, a traditional Korean snack, with a needle.
While it may be hard to recreate it in real life, there is a TikTok filter that allows you to try separating an auto generated shape, such as a star, using your nose as the tip of a needle under a time limit.
Try the TikTok filter here and cross your fingers that you’ll get an easy shape to do.
If you are interested in actually trying it out, Brown Butter Cafe offers the experience. They are also giving out a free iced latte for those who successfully complete the challenge.
The game that truly encompasses the essence of the show is undoubtedly the first game featured in Squid Game — Red Light, Green Light.
In fact, some of us may have played something similar to it as kids. However, there is a funnier way to enjoy the game without having to do any physical running.
This two-person Instagram filter turns you into a tracksuit-wearing player as you blink rapidly to run forward and hold your eyes open when the mannequin figure faces you.
Fool around with your friends using this filter here.
If you are active on TikTok, you might have chanced upon hilarious recreations of Squid Game on Roblox.
From Red Light Green Light to the Glass Bridge guessing game, you can play surprisingly accurate depictions of the games in Squid Game with friends, as well as random players online.
Avid fans of Squid Game can try out these fun filters and games while waiting for news of a possible season two of the show!
