We had our own Hunger Games here in Kansas in July of 2011. Our version was basically a giant water gun/nerf weapon fight where you could get eliminated as the Games played out. It was relatively small this time, but we'll definitely have all 24 tributes next time. We've even got people from 1 1/2 - 2 hours away who are planning on participating in our second Hunger Games.

Minor injuries sustained during our Games: lots of nasty sunburns, a few bruises, and even some cuts and scrapes that have become scars since then.

The really ironic part of all this is that the District 12 tributes drawn in the reaping (completely randomly) were actually a newly married couple. We had our very own star-crossed lovers of District 12! Sadly, the District 12 guy got sick and they both had to withdraw.

After tributes died, they came back later as muttations...but the little footage we got of that does a poor job of explaining what's going on. You can't see the red X that marks them as mutts, so they look just like regular tributes.
