One of the biggest franchises today is Suzanne Collins' masterpiece The Hunger Games. The books and the movies were a huge hit, and it's pretty difficult to find someone who doesn't know who Katniss and Peeta are.
Not to long ago, I was strolling through the internet when I found an awesome Hunger Games simulator on brantsteele.com, where you can enter in your own tributes and see how everyone would fare in an all-out free-for-all.
After acquiring twenty-four willing volunteers from the Moviepilot Creators Facebook page, I decided to see which Creator would triumph in a battle to the death. But before we get to all the killing and hiding and such, let's meet the tributes from the twelve districts of Moviepilot:
(Disclaimer: I did not in any way choose the outcome of this simulation. Every event was randomly generated by the website.)
Now it's time for the fun stuff... Let the bloodbath begin!
As the tributes stand on their podiums, the horn sounds.
Bridget, Thomas, and Cassie all run away from the Cornucopia. Shadan grabs a backpack and retreats as well.
Luis grabs a bow and shoots an arrow at Dana. He misses, and instead the arrow strikes and kills Christian.
Jonah, Ian, Nick, and Christina all run away from the Cornucopia empty-handed, while Bryce finds a canteen full of water.
Reid grabs a mace, but Adonis is able to rip it out of his hands.
Alisha and James both run away, while Josh finds a canteen full of water and Parris finds a bag full of explosives.
Will lingers a bit before Richie scares him away.
Craig, Andrew, Sam, and Daniel all share their findings before they run as well.
I honestly figured that the Bloodbath would be a lot bloodier than that, but it seem that Christian was the first and only one to go (sorry about that man). It seems Luis and Adonis are each armed, and a few others have a few supplies as well. The Career tributes didn't stick together as was expected, but an alliance has been formed by Craig, Andrew, Sam and Daniel.

Alliances get scattered, and Reid meets up with Craig. They play nice and swap stories about their lives before the Games.
Shadan and Bryce also meet up, but they decide on a truce.
Bridget and Andrew meet up, but they are not so friendly. They instantly start to fight each other, and Bridget wins. However, she doesn't feel like she can kill someone, so she spares Andrew's life.
Christina, Thomas, and Luis all get lost in the woods and they lose sight of where they are.
Cassie sees fire off in the distance, but since the Careers broke up, she decides not to go check it out quite yet. Josh also has issues with fire. No matter how hard he tried, he just couldn't seem to get one started.
Sam quietly hums, but stops when he realizes that others may be able to hear him.
