What Will Happen in Squid Game: The Challenge's Second Half?

Of course, Squid Game: The Challenge is hurdling towards the inevitable handing out of its record-breaking $4.56 million prize, but what can fans expect before they get there? 

So far, audiences have been treated to several set pieces from the Squid Game series with participants taking on the reality show's shenanigans

The likes of Red Light, Green Light, the Dalgona Candy Challenge, and Warhip (a super-sized take on Battleship have all been seen, along with a few others. 

There are still some iconic games from the original Squid Game series for The Challenge to tackle. Heavy hitters like Tug-o-War, Hopscotch, and the titular Squid Game are all seemingly set to still make appearances. 

And playing those games will be a meager 63 contestants. Thus far 393 of the 456 players have all been eliminated, meaning it is getting down to the nitty gritty as to who will take home the prize cash. 

With only half the episodes of The Challenge left to year, surely those numbers will widdle down more and more until there is only one left standing. 

Episodes 1-5 of Squid Game: The Challenge are streaming now on Netflix.
