How to enter ‘Squid Game: The Challenge’

Netflix has launched Squid Game: The Challenge, a new reality game show based on the hit Korean drama Squid Game.

In the fictional series, players participated in challenges based on children’s games in a bid to take home a $4.56million cash prize. However, should they lose the games, the consequences were fatal.

Squid Game: The Challenge takes that concept and pits 456 players against each other in a series of games inspired by the original show, as well as some new surprises. As an official synopsis from Netflix explains, the contestants’ “strategies, alliances, and character will be put to the test while competitors are eliminated around them”. One obvious key difference, though, is that rather than being killed off after being eliminated, competitors are just packed off home instead.

In a four-star review, NME wrote: “At its best, Squid Game: The Challenge captures a bit of the Machiavellian magic that made the first season of The Traitors so compelling.

“Where it falls down, predictably, is in the games themselves. It’s hard to feel worried about an old grandpa slipping on the famous bridge challenge when he risks plummeting onto a crash mat and not to his death.”

The first five episodes of the series were released on Netflix on November 22, with a further four set to arrive on November 29. A grand finale will follow on December 6.
