Strategy Game

Alongside the release of Mockingjay there is meant to be a stratagy game where the players pick tributes and actually play out their own hunger games.

Summary:

From the best-selling book comes The Hunger Games: Training Days Strategy Game! Coinciding with the release of the third book in the Hunger Games saga this fall, Training Days allows 2-6 players to follow in the footsteps of their favorite Tributes as they compete in the days leading up to the arena. Includes 18 Tribute Cards representing the female and male Tributes from 9 districts, a deck of 45 Challenge cards featuring: 24 Events, 8 Special Events, 10 Alliances, and 3 End of Day cards. Plus, Effort Tokens for each District, Approval Rating Score Board, and 6-sided dice.


Not only do I believe that this game should be added to the site but i also believe that someone needs to get their hand on it as it may have possible information that is needed in our articles, such as the actual names of those 18 tributes I've supplied a link and the game is set to be released on August 11th 2010, This is only a suggestion but it is one that i encourage you to use.

New Spoiler Tags

I went ahead and made a bunch of themed spoiler tags for the various books, whose colors match the color schemes of their respective American book covers. They can be previewed and used by placing the listed tags below on a Wiki page. Remember, these spoiler tags go between paragraphs or at the top of a section, not directly in the text.

HG-Button-50 Spoiler Alert!
This section may contain plot details from The Hunger Games,
the first book in the Hunger Games trilogy.
HG-Button-50
{{Template:SpoilerHG}}


CF-Button-50 Spoiler Alert!
This section may contain plot details from Catching Fire,
the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy.
CF-Button-50
{{Template:SpoilerCF}}


MJ-Button-50 Spoiler Alert!
This section may contain plot details from Mockingjay,
the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy.
MJ-Button-50
{{Template:SpoilerMJ}}

For example, let's say you wanted to mark up this section with spoilers.

Katniss Everdeen is a sixteen-year-old girl who was a resident of District 12. She is a complete and utter badass.

Katniss participated in and eventually won the 74th Hunger Games.

Katniss participated in the 75th Hunger Games.

Snape kills Katniss during the 76th Hunger Games.

Notice there are spoilers in lines 2, 3, and 4. In order to employ the spoilers, you would need to mark them up in the following manner:

Katniss Everdeen is a sixteen-year-old girl who was a resident of District 12. She is a complete and utter badass.

{{Template:SpoilerHG}}

Katniss participated in and eventually won the 74th Hunger Games.

{{Template:SpoilerCF}}

Katniss participated in the 75th Hunger Games.

{{Template:SpoilerMJ}}

Snape kills Katniss during the 76th Hunger Games.

The end result will look like this:

Katniss Everdeen is a sixteen-year-old girl who was a resident of District 12. She is a complete and utter badass.

HG-Button-50 Spoiler Alert!
This section may contain plot details from The Hunger Games,

MJ-Button-50 Spoiler Alert!

So let's start using these throughout the wiki where appropriate. Enjoy!

Tense Consistency

Hello! I'm new to this wiki, but I'm eager to assist in the editing and expanding. On examining some of the articles and making grammatical corrections, I couldn't help but notice that there is rampant inconsistency regarding verb tenses even within articles. According to academic literary analysis, one would normally always refer to the contents of a book in present tense, for example "Katniss wins the 74th Hunger Games." However, as this is a wiki examining a completed work, the community could decide to refer to all of the contents of the book in past tense. The former is more formally acceptable, but either could be used. The most important thing here is that there is consistency. Either all of the books' events are in present tense or they are all in past tense(of course events that took place before the beginning of the books would always be referred to in past tense, such as "Katniss's father died in the mines). I would love to assist in ironing out these grammatical problems, but I was wondering if the community would prefer one or the other.


I personally favor the academic tradition of using present tense.

Peeta vs. Gale

i accidentally put this in a dif section but someone pointed out it should be here haha. so here is the question again:

peeta or gale? and why? im curious as to what your answers are =)

I just made a dumb mistake

For some reason, I was under the impression there were no pages for the tributes that died in the Bloodbath of the 74th HG, but there are, so the pages I just spent an hour making are usesless and I have no idea how to delete them. If anyone knows how, could they tell me on my talk page, please? (And I'm just saying now that I know how dumb I am so you don't have to tell me.)If the ninja skills don't get you, my army of weiner dogs will! iKayla :) 21:46, April 1, 2012 (UTC)
