Did You Win?

And two tickets to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire go to…


Almost 200 people entered yesterday’s Hunger Games trivia contest for two free tickets to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire tonight at AMC Loews Boston Common 19. When the contest closed at 3 p.m., 139 had answered all of the questions correctly, which earned them a place in a random drawing. That, in turn, was won by Dominic Dagostino (CFA’14).

Here are the questions, and the correct answers, with a warning to those who haven’t read the books—there are spoilers below.

  1. ŸWhat is the main trade in District 4, home of Finnick Odair?
  2. ŸWhat number Hunger Games takes place in this book?
  3. Why does Romulus Thread whip Gale?
    Gale poached a wild turkey.
  4. ŸHow did Haymitch win the 50th Hunger Games?
    Haymitch used the arena’s force field to deflect the axe back at his last opponent. When she died, he became the victor.
  5. What is an avox unable to do?
    The avox does not have a tongue, and is therefore unable to speak.
  6. Which district does Katniss witness rebelling on Mayor Undersee’s television?
    District 8
  7. Whose name does Katniss write on the dummy she hangs during a private session with the gamemakers?
    Seneca Crane, the head gamemaker of the 74th Hunger Games, who died after crowning both Katniss and Peta the victors.
  8. ŸWhat is the purpose of a spile?
    It can be tapped into trees to draw out sap and drinking water.
  9. ŸWho tells Katniss that the arena is shaped like a clock?
    We accepted both Wireress and Plutarch Heavensbee. While Wireress constantly says “Tick tock” to Katniss, Plutarch Heavensbee tries to give her a hint during the Victory Tour by showing her his mockingjay watch.
  10. What happens to District 12 at the end of the book?
    It is bombed and destroyed by the Capitol.
