Season 2 of the global hit drama “Squid Game” has been confirmed, and fans are excited to know what new games will be introduced in the coming season. We made a guess based on the first season’s games.
The first season of “Squid Game” featured six games with two things in common. First, they are mostly traditional Korean children’s games. And second, the games should be relatively fair for participants to win, which means that each individual’s abilities should not be the most important factor in winning.
Based on these two criteria, we think that the following three games may be interesting enough to be played in the second season.
First, the Korean See Saw
Korean See Saw, also known as Neolttwigi in its original name, is a jumping game played by two people standing on opposite sides of a wooden board.
Consider the long wooden board in the middle of the river, where alligators are swimming. It would be interesting to see this game in the next season as a one-on-one deathmatch game.
Second, Toad House
This game is called “Toad House” because the structures that the players construct resemble the home of Toad. Each participant is stacking sand and building a dune while putting one hand inside. Then slowly remove the hand while preventing the sand dune from collapsing. If the sand falls, that person loses; if neither falls, the person with the highest pile wins.
This could work in the same way that Marbles did in the first season. Assume the participants are on a sand beach, and pink soldiers appear with rulers to measure how tall each toad house is.
Third, the Team Jump Rope
Team Jump Rope is similar to the popular game Double Dutch. In traditional Double Dutch, one player jumps two long jump ropes that turn in opposite directions. It becomes a team sport in the Korean version.
Two team members hold each end of the long jump rope while others jump the rope. The team that jumps the rope the most times in a given period wins.
This game could be another extreme team sport like the first season’s Tug of War. In the second season, a character similar to Oh-Il-Nam may appear to teach the team the secret to victory.
Aside from the games, another exciting aspect of “Squid Game 2” is the appearance of Cheol-Su, Young-Hee’s boyfriend. He may appear as another terrifying creature, along with pink soldiers, to evict the participants. We’ll keep you updated as more information about the next season of “Squid Game” becomes available.
