Aussies who are obsessed with Squid Game will get a chance to play it in real life.

A company has organised a proper competition called Squiz Gamez and it will take place across Aussie capital cities from next year.

They're looking to get as many as 2,000 people to compete against each other in four rounds, with 500 people per round.

They will have to undergo a series of challenges and if they lose then they are 'eliminated'.

The company insists this is a game of 'fun', so hopefully that means you won't get brutally killed if you don't pass to the next round.

All you have to do is buy a ticket for the competition in your city and then wait until you get a calling card, which is estimated to be around February.

Contestants will have to call the number for more instructions and those lucky to be chosen will travel to an arena or stadium to start the games.

The winner of each round will be guaranteed a spot in the final and those contestants will go head-to-head for a chance to win a 's**t load' of money.

The last person standing will win a 'life-changing cash prize' and get driven home in a stretch limousine with seven of their friends.

If you don't manage to get chosen then you will be invited to watch the competition play out from the VIP viewing area.

There will no doubt be loads of people who will want to take part in this enticing and intriguing game, especially considering you won't die if you get something wrong.

If none of this makes sense to you then where have you been hiding?

The real-life game in Australia is based off the Netflix series Squid Game, which has become the streaming service's most watched TV show in its entire history.

After hitting the platform last month, it was watched by more than 111 million accounts, which beat the previous record held by Bridgerton.

The show is set in South Korea and revolves around this annual game that is played by debt-ridden citizens.

More than 400 people are recruited for a competition that has six rounds that are based on classic children's games. The winner walks away with more money than they know what to do with, however if you lose in the game, you die.
