Squid Game Wiki

The Special Round, also known as the Special Game, was a bonus game that happened between Games 2 and 3, taking place in the lobby. Though not part of the six game line-up, this was a planned event of the staff to "weed out the weakest".

Game Information

The game started during the lights out by Player 101 by stabbing Player 198, because she snitched on 101 and his gang for cutting the line for seconds. Soon, a fight begins to break out. As the fight continued, the lights started to flicker.

The game ended when Oh Il-nam couldn't take it anymore and climbed on top of one of the highest beds and demanded things to stop. The lights then turned back to normal and soldiers started shooting on the ceiling to stop the brawling.
