theorygion is down on his luck gamer who is in dire need of some money he has loan sharks after him his mother can't pay for his surgery and on top of that he's going to lose custody of his daughter because he can't afford a desperate lawyer he agrees to play the highest stakes game imaginable they take him to a remote island with over 400 competitors where to win they have to survive six different children Ren's games, some of them are pass and fail challenges, such as red light, green light, where failure results in execution, others are puzzle games player vs player, like tug of war where the losing team goes down and dies as to why you would possibly want to risk your life in a game like this well each death adds a hundred million won to the prize pool 100 million won can you believe that now all of you are googling that conversion rate?
Don't worry I did it too when I was watching the show and so did
everyoneelse according to Google trending search results for john to US dollar conversion it actually comes out to around 84 000 per death considering that there are 456 contestants, you're talking about a potential prize pool of 38 million dollars, but be careful once you start playing, you can't stop playing and those who refuse to play need to worry about clause number two of the consent form, clause 2, a player who refuses to play will be removed when they say removal means a bullet and their heads intersect in a nasty way, the only way out once games have started is clause 3 of the consent form. of players vote to finish the game that's why subs are always better than dubs so anyway with the rules in place let's go to strategy like I mentioned before players don't know
whatgames they are going to play until you reach death island, if you are observant you can piece together clues based on the decorations on the walls around you, but it still won't give you much time to prepare or practice so that's what we'll assume today that We just signed up and I have no idea what awaits us in this massive game of death.
What should our general strategies be first? We shouldn't assume that just because people are dying that this is a death game because it's not the rule. ipate in six different games, those who win all six games will receive an attractive cash prize if you survive, win and safe, while each kill increases the jackpot, it's not like a battle royale or hunger game where there can only be one left here . there can be more than one winner and that is important, it means that the survival of a person or even a group of people is not directly negative for their personal survival, which opens the question of whether they are sabotaging their fellow players to increase the award. boat and advance yourself this is a dilemma that actually appears repeatedly throughout the series in the second song of the game woo realizes the game before anyone does by pulling a shape out of a brittle honeycomb candy knowing this, you immediately choose the easier way and then encourage the other players on your team to split up to take ways that are much more difficult and much more likely to lead to your elimination, obviously there are all sorts of moral and ethical reasons why you shouldn't intentionally try to kill other people, but what Songwoo does here in game 2 is one of the dumbest moves we see him do throughout the entire series.
The people he chooses to sabotage are people who have agreed to team up with him, the players who in the event of a fight are more likely to have his back rather than plant a knife between his shoulder blades, oh wait, that's exactly it. what we see happen, they come to his rescue the next night when everyone tries to kill each other, but teaming up isn't just about keeping people and their personal alliance safe; keeping more players in the game longer means more opportunities for other people to help you survive again, take that honeycomb game for an example in it players are given a needle to pierce their shape which is fine for easy shapes like a triangle but not very effective for the more fragile shapes like the umbrella or the star, however, one person in the group is our hero.
A desperate Gion comes up with a completely original strategy that ignores the needle completely and licks the candy so the shape can come out. that's why it's stupid when players try to kill each other between games two and three because these are men whose lives were saved by the person they're now trying to eliminate you know what they say two heads are better than one so 50 heads . should be even better and 400 heads is even better than that that's why the internet hive mind is so good at solving puzzles they all bring their own experiences and knowledge to the table so lets say you were faced with a challenge . that involves jumping across panels of glass with 50 of those panels tempered and safe to stand on right, it would be very helpful if the group had someone who is a glass expert who could tell th the difference between tempered and non-tempered glass, oh wait, that's exactly what happens, except instead of sharing his knowledge, the glass expert hides this fact until the very end after virtually every other player has died.
This is stupid not only from a statistical but also a strategic angle. one considering most games are timed everyone else realizing they're just blind guessing at a coin toss that could cost you your life wastes time every second you're hiding your knowledge is second the group making no progress as a result, our glassmaker, despite having the knowledge that should have kept him alive through this challenge, eventually dies because his time is running out if he had shared it from the start almost everyone could have survived what was one of the most disastrous and difficult challenges of the lot i can also digress here for a minute this annoyed me i just didn't like this challenge i understand it was a cool visual and interesting concept but the challenge just didn't work for me, It didn't seem to be based on a backyard game like all the others, the game creators cheat by turning the lights off halfway which contra it directly subtracts its everything everyone gets a fair chance tagline putting people in a specific order felt unfair and then the way they wrap it up with a giant explosive ending puts everyone's life at risk it was just a good show but also something that felt a bit cheap. in the room each player that dies adds more money to the prize pool but that's the
wrongway to think about it, let's assume that as we see in the show there are six rounds and that there will be at least three games that require 50 of the players to be eliminated, these would be games like tug of war and marbles where a certain amount of kill is guaranteed, which means your share of the prize pool will already sit at a hefty 800 million won 66 US$8,000 even before any kill extra from the other games if you're someone like gion who has loan sharks to pay for a family member's surgery to pay for and an ex-spouse to fight in court that amount should cover everything while still leaving you with enough to make the down payment of a new house, there is also an economic principle called the law of diminishing utility that states that if someone is unlucky, having an extra eighty thousand dollars and It's a huge big deal if you're guilla that money has a lot of use, but if you're already ready to make over $600,000, another $80,000 on top is certainly nice, but it's no longer your life-changing sum of money. once your basic needs are met as income rises, you get less and less of an increase in your life satisfaction, but a little better car, a little better house, therefore not something you want. may this be worth risking your life for surprisingly it's a topic that t the last episode focuses on although for spoiler reasons I'm not going to play the clip no don't get me
wrongI'm not saying any winner of the squid games You shouldn't have that much money, but what I'm saying is that there is a tipping point where every additional dollar earned is worth less and less risking your own life to achieve it and just playing the game with survival as your first priority, you end up with a lot of money to turn your situation around while minimizing your risk of losing that life so you know you can go ahead and spend it, obviously there will be rounds where you are forced to fight for your life and take out other players, but if you don't have to kill people, then don't think that's a sentence.
I would have to say but here we are but there is a big concern that you have to be aware of clause number three at any time players can vote whether or not to end the game if the majority of the players want out that causes the game it will end not just for them but forever so you can walk home with your money you have to complete six games but people will probably vote to escape the games if they are put in a position where they are almost certainly going to die so with that in mind let's go back to the glass bridge, unless you have outside knowledge of what tempered and non-tempered glass looks like, the game is usually decided by random coin tossing and coin tossing, I mean the first few people in line having a light case of death for the good of the group in the challenge there are 18 sets of panels, worst case you have 18 kills best case is zero deaths with the person in front ad guessing correctly every time, but there's a good chance that player number three will guess correctly when he has three panels in probability so I'll get all of this in 32,768.
In general, if you're first in line, you have a survival chance of 262 144, the average here is nine kills with the probability distribution curve basically looking for g as a bell curve which you can see using any binomial visualization tool, yeah have one of those handy, using that probability plot, we can see that the first six people in line are basically screwed and have less than a five percent chance of surviving while people going 13 and later have a 95 or better chance of surviving, but even if you're stuck in the game without calculator, it doesn't take a lot of brain power todetermine that you don't want to be one of the first nine people to play, so as a smart player you'd hopefully choose not to be one of the first people in line, but even if you feel good about your chances of survival, remember that to cross the bridge you need the game. happen let's say the game is down to 13 players and you're lucky to be 13th in line that's good news for you you have a 95 chance to survive however you probably won't make it across the bridge for the simple reason reason that there's a good chance that the first seven people in line are going to walk out of there with a majority vote to end the game which means even though you were ideally positioned and would have won you get nothing good day sir , and sees that this is exactly what could have happened on the show. 16 players left knowing the first nine would likely die, they could have voted to finish. the game at that time and there and because they were in majority clause number three game over would have been enacted now let's take the alternate scenario let's assume knowledge was shared and everyone cooperated at this point there would have been two 50 game elimination strips and tug of war and marbles at best, 456 players would have been reduced to 114 by the time you get to the bridge, even if every one of those first 18 people in line chickened out, they wouldn't have enough votes to end the game and instead Even if most of them are eliminated, we would expect an average of nine of those players or eight percent of the 114 player pool to be eliminated. 92 percent of the players survived to beat this game. and damn good odds, in short, your chances of survival go up as more people are around you to take the hits, so now that we've spent a lot of time talking about what not to do, what can you do to increase your chances? chances of surviving in squid? the game besides playing nice with your fellow competitors well the first one is obvious don't panic red light green light its an easy game and the timer was very generous as long as you stay calm and use your time wisely too As with the three clauses, be sure to pay attention to the rules of the game, for example, we see Songwoo cheating with marbles by deflecting his partner, but his method of collecting 20 marbles doesn't actually involve breaking any of the stated rules. by the master of the game, a player who manages to take all ten marbles from his partner repeatedly throughout the series, we see players being presented with an obvious solution like the needle in the honeycomb game and simply assuming that because this is t the default or recommended way to play the game, therefore it should be the only way to play, but it is rarely the case.
You can lie to your partner and take their marbles. You can lick your candy until the sugar melts. The problem everyone falls into. it's that they assume there are certain rules when in fact they're not in the glass bridge episode we see Guillain was able to take a single marble as a souvenir which ended up being relevant in that same game a second third or 20 more wonders could have been very helpful with that one too with that glass bridge the rules just state that you have to jump from one panel to another for this game you will guess which of the following two tiles is the tile made from the strongest tempered glass and only step on the ones that are found throughout the 18 pairs of tiles, but nothing said you had to land in the middle of each panel, landing with your feet on the support bars that hold up the glass will reduce weight on that glass and ultimately help return your system. , breaking is breaking the rules, I don't know, I honestly don't think so, but here's what you know: you're going to die if you choose wrong, so why don't you try bending the rules a bit? when there is nothing more to lose by taking a moment to think about the actual strict rules of the game and not automatically dismissing unconventional solutions on the assumption that anything else is not allowed, you may finally be able to find the loophole that allows you to survive use your environment not only the walls give you clues, but also your clothes, bed, springs and mattresses, all could come in handy if you were given a glass bottle as part of your meal yesterday instead of breaking it to try to hurt your opponents, why not take it with you to your next game of tug of war? throw it at your opponent's platform to knock him off balance or put glass under his feet, maybe cut the rope so neither side loses something else they want.
Don't tell me this is just a terrible idea. I think the wrist senses when you move around that person in front of you will stop at times you don't expect or anticipate. If they are shot, the bullet could go through and pierce you or your dead body could hit you and instead of concentrating on the game itself, you will be concentrating on someone else as you run across that field, which is not where your attention should be in short. , your number one strategy to survive the squid game should be to ignore song woo, i think it would put us at a disadvantage if we just pick one who you think is the smartest person in the room, all his ideas are dumb i guess except for the game of tug of war anyway if you find yourself in a train station with a well-dressed man who invites you to throw squares of paper at you now you know what to do and that is to say not because unless you want to earn more than half million dollars is greater than your desire to have more than a 12 chance of surviving the next week of your life, it won't be worth it, but hey, that's just a theory, a movie theory and here's a game for you, press the subscribe button as fast as you can to see how many times you can hit it before. this video ends, maybe you will end up subscribed to this channel, maybe not, we will find out together, it will give me the weirdest data to unsubscribe and resubscribe to a video of all time. me for this
