    It feels like EVERYONE is talking about Squid Game, the Korean action / drama about a deadly series of children's games. I've seen other channels take a swing at explaining the series and figuring out the best strategy to surviving until the end, but I felt like I needed to try and figure it out myself. There had to be a perfect winning strategy. Theorists, I think I've found out the ULTIMATE way to survive to win the Squid Game!

My guess to what the glass game is supposed to resemble is hopscotch? Where one jumps on multiple panels and throw rocks (or in their case, a marble) to see which panels not to jump on.

I wonder if you ran really fast if you could make it. It seems to take a second for the glass to break so as long as you touch and go maybe you could make it?

it is not cheating by turning off the lights it made it far so one person did not have a greater chance of serving. If he shard his knowledge the lights would have been turned off suner making it harder to tell where the glass is

Actually when you mention the fact that more than one player can win. I think that is false. They show a list of winners and every game only has one winner. So they don’t say it specifically in the show however it is implied.

if they had chosen to left the game at the glass stepping stones they would leave with no money because remember that in the show they left empty handed after red light green light and so all of that torture wouldve been for nothing

If everyone who played was given the prize pool worth of money EACH (so total money given away is prize pool x players left), what would be the most optimal amount of deaths for the greatest payment outcome (I know it's likely a system of equations problem but I'm too lazy to solve it)

I just got around to watching it and when they were going to stop playing the first time they said the money would be split amongst the families of the victims who had passed away, so even if they stopped playing per the third clause, they’d go home traumatized and with no money, right? They can’t just opt out and then split the money; that’s how I understood it anyway

I don‘t get why nobody realises the marbel game could have been survived by everyone. You are supposed to get all 10 marbels of your partner. You don‘t need your own 10 marbels to win. Thats just if the rules are exactly like they said.

But if you go in the games blind, you have no way to know how many future rounds will have necessary player elimination. So you will want at least some people to die so you get anything.

What I don’t get about sub vs dub is that they’ve got some subs different to some parts of the dub translation so how is it that they are able to translate the subs correctly but somehow manage to screw it up in the dubbed version?

I just wanna say, I disagree about the glass bridge game being cheap and counter to like the message of the game runners. In my eyes it's super indicative of the reality of the games in that there is no real equality between the characters. The VIPs and their entertainment is paramount and the equality angle is just a lie.

actually… there could only be 1 winner… the last game was 1v1 elimination only 1 person could remain… even if you kept 100 ppl alive it would’ve been worse…if both of them could’ve won then they would’ve walked out splitting the money 50/50 but they both could’ve walked out is when they both quit the game but since Mr. Woo killed himself it deemed the main character the winner which meant he gets ALL the money… they cannot share the pot even if they survive because they both would have to make it past the 6th game which was last man standing…

I think the Glass Panel game was supposed to be an early hint that the V.I.P.s we’re using them as “gambling horses”. Which is why they put on the special numbers that look like the one’s used in a horse race.
