This virtual engagement programme is one of the most innovative initiatives by Happy Sparrow in 2020 when COVID 19 affected the entire world.

2. THE ‘SQUID GAME’
The Squid game is a literal translation of a popular schoolyard game played by Korean children during the 1970s and 1980s. It’s described as a “type of tag where offense and defence use a squid-shaped board drawn in the dirt. In the show, a crew of very ‘desperate’ South Koreans—all mired in debt—are lured to a remote island where they’re to play a series of games from which the winner will emerge a multimillionaire. Soon things take a turn for the darker, beginning with the most gruesome game of Red Light, Green Light you’ve ever seen.
Of course, Happy Sparrow will not wanna bring his participants to the ‘dark side’ for sure. In the Sparrow’s Edition of the Squid Games, he will ‘mirror’ a few of the games and let the participants understand the ‘alternative ways’ to play them virtually. And best of all, he will even teach you a trick or two during the game play so that you will be able to enjoy this spectacular Netflix series in a better way too!

If you’ve got instant coffee, sugar, and water on hand, you can make this. It’ll go by faster if you have a hand mixer, but a humble regular whisk, one powerful arm, and a good dose of patience and endurance will get you there too—just make sure you’re ready to feel the burn in your triceps and biceps and you’ll be rewarded with a nice tall glass of cold, creamy coffee that’s sweetened just right.

For example, if the secret number is 657, and if a participant calls out 100, the host will say Higher. And when the host goes to the 2nd participant, the participant has to call out another number that is higher than 100. If the 2nd participant calls out 900, the host will say ‘ lower’. This will go on until the ‘unfortunate’ or ‘fortunate’ participant calls out the correct number. The host will then turn his attention to him/ her and will ‘Zoom’ into the participant for him/ her to seal their fate in the ‘ROYAL FLUSH’ where they either get to answer a question, do a short performance or if they are lucky enough, just walk away with a Secret Present without doing anything at all!
