How the people who played Squid Game: The Challenge secretly helped Team Umbrella win the Cookie Game

In Netflix's reality version of its hit drama, players carefully cut shapes out of brittle cookies for a kids' game. 

Now, two fans are talking about their favorite things, like how the cookies taste.

When Squid Game first came out on Netflix in 2021, it changed the meaning of "That's how the cookie crumbles"

because one cruel competition that was based on childhood games ended in death.

Dalgona was a surprisingly stressful game on the Emmy-winning show. Players had to carefully cut forms out of paper-thin wafer cookies, ranging from a simple circle to an umbrella with a lot of tiny details.

In the story as it was written, one important character did help another, but it was more out of jealousy and self-preservation than out of kindness.

In Netflix's surprisingly good-natured but still very interesting reality show based on the South Korean show, Squid Game: The Challenge, players worked together on a much bigger scale during Dalgona.

According to mother-son combatants LeAnn Wilcox Plutnicki (Player 302) and Trey Plutnicki (Player 301), who etched circles in the first round of the cookie game, their team was willing to defy the guards to help others play another day.
