The lowdown on what the triangle, circle and square symbols mean on the Squid Game masks...
It seems the whole world has been overtaken by the Squid Game mania!
Now fans want to know – what do the symbols on the pink Squid Game workers masks mean? Here's an explainer on the Squid Game hierarchy....
The workers that keep the contestants of the Squid Game in check all adorn mysterious masks with shapes on them – these symbols show their rank.
There are three types of workers in the game, masks range from donning circles to triangles to squares.
Circle wearing workers are the lowest ranking, they must answer to their superiors and can "only speak when spoken to".
Triangles are placed on the middle rung of the Squid Game hierarchy – they act as armed soldiers.
Squares are effectively the bosses within the worker's group, they keep their fellow triangles and circles in check and call the shots.
Of course, all the pink suited workers answer to the Front Man!
