The Role of the Hunger Games By Duane Collins In order to understand the role of the Hunger Games, one must look at how the Hunger Games began. At the time of the first book in this series, there had been 73 previous Hunger Games “events.” The Hunger Games was an annual event orchestrated by the Capitol to remind each of the 12 Districts of the past rebellion that had taken place many years prior, referred to as the “Dark Days” in the series. As an ongoing punishment for the rebellion, the Capitol required each District to provide one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 years old. These two were selected by lottery and were referred to as tributes. The tributes had to fight to the death in an outdoor arena controlled by the Capitol, until only one of them remained.

Theseus volunteered to be a “tribute” as did Katniss in the barbaric practice.
