Past Hunger Games - 9th Hunger Games - Mountaintops
The 9th annual Hunger Games took place in the frozen mountaintops of what was assumed to be the famed Himalayan Mountains. The outfit given to these tributes were very skimpy, consisting of only a t-shirt, a light sweater, pants, and boots. The Cornucopia, however, was filled with thick jackets, goggles, gloves, and hats. During the first few hours of the games 8 tributes died in the bloodbath and 6 died due to exposure to the cold. Titus, who had managed to get a hold of some warm clothes, along with a set of ice axes, joined into the bloodbath; killing two tributes before taking off with his goods. Food was scarce during these games, being nearly impossible to get other than though sponsors. Titus, desperate for food, began eating the tributes that he killed. Eventually, the Gamemakers had to start stunning Titus to keep him from eating the bodies, seeing as cannibalism didn’t go over too well with the Capitol citizens. Titus personally took out five of the six careers, although he is credited with all six kills. The final career’s death was never confirmed before an avalanche buried both Titus and his dying opponent, leaving the games without a victor. The death of Titus and lack of a victor this year lead to the understanding that, although the games technically have no rules, cannibalism will not be tolerated.
