My hunger games is much more fun than this one. Im not saying leave this one, you can do both, but my hunger games has more from the book than this one. Like stylists. In fact, we are going to have a parade of tributes and the stylists are working on design ideas. We also have houses like the book had floors of the place where they lived during training. There are many training rooms, like a training room to educate you on where to hide in the jungle, what type of berries are poisoinus are not, and even camofladge training. We also have many rooms that are open for alliances to chat. Just search hip and click the first book.
