It isn't challenging, and there is very little skill required.

It's mainly just luck and an obvious attempt to get on the Hunger Games popularity bandwagon.

Played this with some friends and fam and we really enjoyed it. There is definitely some strategy in it and once you get the hang of it, it can be addicting. :)

I'm an English teacher who bought this game for my classroom. (My classes have read the book and seen the movie.) My students enjoy playing the game right now, while there's been so much hype about the series. The game is fun, but it relies on luck more than strategy, which keeps it unpredictable. It's not something you'll want to play over and over again. It's a game you'll eventually master and tire of, but it's a fun addition to Hunger Games gear for die-hard fans.

Note: The game that I received is missing a game card. We were able to figure out how to work around it, but that was irritating. Also, I was shocked to see that the game pieces are made of cheap cardboard rather than plastic. Cardboard is not going to withstand a lifetime of game play. For these reasons alone, I cannot give a score of five.

I bought this for my (nearly) 10 year old daughter. Getting started with playing the game was not obvious and we had to go through most of the instructions before we could begin. I can see why it is recommended for older kids, although once we got started my 8 and 10 year olds did fine with it. It's not difficult to play, just difficult to learn because it is so different. The game is for between 2 and 4 players, and you will want as many players as possible to make for a more interesting game.

This is not a game about battling in the hunger games itself, but about day-to-day survival in the poverty-stricken District 12 where Katniss lives. I think some people may be disappointed in that fact so it's worth pointing out. Having said that, it is a unique type of game play that I haven't experienced in any other type of board game. If you are familiar with at least the first Hunger Games book, it will be familiar.

It's a strategy game about balancing resources so that you don't have to take Tessarae (government food handouts). By doing so, you limit the number of times your name gets added to the reaping bowl. At the end of the game there is a reaping where a name is drawn. Everyone's name is entered at least once. Regardless of how well you have played the game and managed your resources, if it's your name that is drawn, you loose.

First time we played, we almost died of nerves once the time came for the reaping. I started the speech: "Welcome, welcome. The time has come to select one courageous young man and woman for the honor of representing District 12 in the annual Hunger Games! May the odds be EVER in your favor!" I turned over the first card and the blue player yelled when her card came out XD When we played again, yellow got chosen and his expression was one of stress as he pictured everything that would happen to him in the Games (though I must say he had it coming since he got so much tesserae that there was barely any entries from the other players). This game really puts you in the middle of daily life in District 12 and is the best immersion tool for those that want to feel closer to their reality...

First off, this game can be a little dissapointing, initially. The Hunger Games is about a fight to the death between contestants in a futuristic arena environment. This game is not. It is a resource management game about scraping for food and resources in District 12.

Also, this will not hold up to Thematic games like Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings. Having said that, it is also much more reasonably priced, and is a very solid resource management game with some interesting mechanics.

The things I like the MOST about this game are that is is a small board and easily transportable, perfect for travel or playing on surfaces where you don't have room to sprawl out, and that it plays quickly, in 30 minutes or less.

It is also has simple enough mechanics that it can be played by children and a popular enough theme that it is playable by non-gamers.

For the cost, this game is definately a great value.

The District Thirteen Game is more fun with more people; a common occurance with the HG Board Game Series. With two people, there is little "confrontation"; the pair only intereact with each other in the game in few situations. Playing with only two players did not make the game interesting or too exciting. Expept at the end. I love the Reaping. :]

When playing with four people (Who know how to really play) the game is very interesting and requires much more strategy. Whilst when playing with two people, if the other player takes the area you wanted to get to, then there are all of the other areas in which to benefit from. But with four people, the competion is pretty fierce! Trading on the trading rounds and thinking about your next moves are very interesting.

I would recomend this game for people who like the Hunger Games, who also like strategy games, and then playing it with four people. Otherwise, it's all up to the Reaping Cards to decide your fate...
