However, the game becomes even more stressful as participants must win to stay alive and take home the billions of dollars in prize money. Because, in the story, the participants who take part in the Squid Games are those who are in debt and have economic problems.

However, the tug of war in the Squid Game is packaged more challenging where the two teams compete for strength so as not to fall from the height where the tug of war is held.

Marbles with Kelereng

The fourth game is marbles, which is exactly the same as the marbles game in Indonesia, which is very common for children to play. The game of marbles can be played in various ways, but the goal is to get more marbles from your opponent. Likewise in the Squid Game, marbles are displayed in various ways of playing according to the agreement of the two participants. The participant who gets all the opponent's marbles wins. So, thumbs up who still has the marbles until now?

Glass Stepping Stone with Engklek

Engklek is an old children's game that uses a flat area such as the ground as a play area. The hooves are drawn with chalk and made of boxes, the children must jump into the squares correctly. Generally this game is played by girls. The fifth game in the Squid Game is a glass bridge in the form of a square, participants must step on one of the right glass. Well, Moms can really invite your little one to play cranks in the yard to get rid of boredom at home during a pandemic like this.

Squid Game with Gobak Sodor

The sixth or final game is the Squid Game. The Squid Game is the ultimate game to take home the billions of dollars in prize money. The way of playing is divided into two teams, namely attackers and defenders. Players who serve as attackers must break through the defense line guarded by the defending team to reach the end of the squid-shaped line. This game is almost the same as gobak sodor or galasin in Indonesia. The difference is, in gobak sodor the attacker is said to be eliminated if touched by the defending team. This gobak sodor game can also be used as an exciting way to teach your little one how to walk. But Moms and Dads still have to be careful when playing.
