So I'm wandering through my local bookstore and decide to check out the Young Adult shelves, and I stop dead in my tracks. "Seriously?" I ask myself, "No, really. Seriously? A Hunger Games board game?" But there it was. My eyes gave proof to the reality. My friends, it is true: there is a Hunger Games board game. Why does it exist? The cynic in me acknowledges that with the final book due to hit shelves later this month, the games arrival in stores (along with t-shirts and mockingjay pins) is hardly a coincidence.

If you haven't read the books, don't bother with the game. It's not for you. If you have read the books, then whether or not this *is* for you depends on how much you like the books. I consider myself to be an avid fan, yet I purchased it primarily out of curiosity. It's inexpensive as far as games go ($20) and it certainly wouldn't be the worst impulse purchase I've ever made. (That honor probably goes to a Pog collector's kit purchased when I was in 7th grade. Remember Pogs? No? Figures.)

But the game. Yes, the game.

"The Hunger Games: Training Days" itself does not involve the arena, but -- as the title suggests -- focuses on the days of training. Predicably, you assume the role of a tribute from one of the districts of Panem. The winner of the game is the one who finishes training with the most popularity with the Capitol audience. Each round, several "event" cards are turned up. These can be straightforward (Show off your knot-tying ability), to forging an alliance with another tribute (thereby gaining some of their talents), to special (opening ceremonies, the reaping). After the cards have been turned up, players will take turns bidding on the event they want. Win an event, and your favor with the capitol audience rises.

WizKids Games has a proud history of producing board games (Tsuro, Oshi) that are a lot of fun and involve strategy without being complicated or inaccessible to the average player. In that tradition, The Hunger Games: Training Days lives up to its predecessors marvelously!

I had the opportunity to play this game at GenCon and I have to say that I enjoyed it very much! I found the premise to be very interesting, the mechanics very accessible, the strategy surprisingly complex (without being complicated), and the gameplay exciting.

Having not read the books, I was concerned I would be lost during gameplay. Fortunately, the game is so well designed that both fans and those who have not read the series (like me) will find themselves engrossed in scoring allies, winning events, and increasing their Approval Ratings through all three "Training Days".

This game made me think without it being too lofty or complicated, and that is the benchmark of an enjoyable game that I will play over and over again.

I bought this game to play with my family, the members of which are also big "Hunger Games" fans. This game is fun and I am pleased I decided to purchase it, but is not without its disappointments.

First and foremost, I was really upset that they didn't include tribute (player) cards from every district. Tributes from Districts 5, 6, and 9, are not included in the game. Personally I found this frustrating because I want to learn more about the Districts that were not heavily involved in the plot of the book series (namely 5, 6, and 9). But more so, I paid $25 for this game -- I want all 12 Districts represented! Obviously, though, they're not, but I suppose this is not a big deal as there are 9 other districts to choose from.

On top of that, all the pieces are made of a thick cardboard that can easily become frayed or bent if not cared for properly (my player cards actually arrived a little curved in the box). This isn't a big deal as the readers of the series are likely old enough to know how to care for bendable board games, but nonetheless this is something to be aware of before purchasing.

I was a little annoyed at the balance (or in this case, lack thereof) between the tributes from different Districts. I suppose this reflects the reality of the Hunger Games -- tributes from Career Districts, for example, have many advantages over other Tributes -- but in the game it makes it a lot less fun for those stuck playing as a weak tribute. But also, some of the stats don't make sense. Naturally the tributes from District 1 and 11 are really powerful, while tributes from less plotline-important Districts such as 8 are weak and don't have any great special abilities to make up for their lack of power.

The Hunger Games- Training Days is an exciting strategic experience. Each player plays a tribute from a different district and competes in all sorts of challenges from weight lifting to eye-catching attire! It's very simple to learn the rules, but as the training days progress and characters begin to gain special abilities, attributes, and allies, things become very interesting. There are elements of chance for sure, but it's all about playing to your strengths and your opponents weaknesses. It's simple enough for older kids to play, but the game can become complex enough to challenge the most skilled adult gamers. The game is more fun with many players, and is an all around good time whether you are familiar with the books or not!
