The Hunger games are the yearly games put on by the Capitol to entertain the people of the Capitol. They are a brutal survival of the fittest type game that pits young people from different districts against each other. Only one "tribute" is meant to survive. Following each Hunger Games, the Capitol runs a Victory Tour featuring the victor or victors of the previous Games travelling around Panem. Much of the philosophy behind these games and parades are to provide entertainment and maintain control over the masses.

Thank you aslan! that really helped me with my paper!



The Hunger Games and the Victory Tour is an annual event that takes place every year to prevent a rebellion. The Hunger Games is a kill or be killed event where they take a male and a female older than 12 but younger the 18 from every district (there where 13 districts but the capitol destroyed district 13, now only 12 districts) to fight till there is one man (or woman) standing. The Victory Tour is a tour through out all of the districts for the person(s) who won the games. The tour is more or less a welcoming home so to speak.
