Wiress die in the process.
• The group learns that the Arena is shaped like a clock
with each section an hour of the day. During that hour,
the gamemakers have created a challenge for the
tributes to overcome. Many do not.
Emotional Torture
• Besides the usual gamemaker tactics like muttations
that sting and huge waves that drown, the Capitol

tributes loved ones screaming in pain. The tributes
don’t know if the recording are real or not.

Arena’s lighting and his wire.
• The plan goes awry, Katniss is stabbed, several tributes
dies. Katniss decides perhaps it is time for her to die as
