Squid Game: The Trials

Time Out says

Far less deadly than the fictional competition it’s based on, this real-life adaptation of Squid Game lets you compete in six challenges inspired by the Netflix series. Over the course of 70 minutes, you’ll rack up points in a series of games presented to you by the Front Man himself. They’re largely inspired by familiar childhood games (think twists on marbles, Battleship and Operation), with some pulled straight from the series like Red Light, Green Light. If you “die” (not for real, of course) you can still experience all of the games, though the top scorers will face off in one final trial.

Both before and after, you can grab a bite at a night market curated by chef Katianna Hong of the Arts District’s excellent Korean American deli, Yangban. Of course, there’ll be Squid Game merch for purchase, too, alongside plenty of photos.

The event debuts at Television City on December 6 for a limited run. You’ll need a timed ticket, which starts at $39.
