Hunger Game Past Arenas: Temple Ruins (71st Games)

There was much anticipation over this year’s arena. Tributes were welcomed into an arena full of mysterious temples, broken paths, old myths carved into the stone walls. The poisonous vines were deadlier than the tributes themselves, taking out over half the tributes in less than two days.
                              Johanna Mason, of District 7 proved that not always acting tough and strong made you a winner. With a fighting score of just five, she  proved the game makers wrong when she turned into a devilish-feline, with a wicked ability to murder at the drop of an axe - which was her special weapon of torture.

Hunger Game Past Arenas: Pleasant Falls (70th Games)

Game maker’s kept it simple this year for the tributes, with a gorgeous landscape of forests and hills, and also one of the largest lakes put into an arena. However, it all turned crazy once the earth shook and half the arena was flooded with lake water within hours.
                                  Annie Cresta, of District 4, a small girl at a young age of 16 years old, won by her magnificent talents of swimming and holding her breath underwater - outshining the rest of the surviving tributes. She was the only remaining tribute after the great arena flood, but she still can’t forget the image of watching the beheading of her district companion, what a fight that was!

Hunger Game Past Arenas: The Three Storey Maze (9th Games)

It starts with a Cabin. And then you are on your own. Despite being one of the very first man-made arena’s, the 9th Games proved to be one of the most impressive ones, still to this day. Consisting of three levels, tributes were forced to make their way through mind-bending mazes, turning even some tributes crazy!
                              Victor, fourteen year old Mags Walker from District 4, had all of Panem supporting her as she found herself up against Capitol engineered ghouls and crazed-tributes. Since her victory, Mags has been unable to speak, due the utterly traumatising arena conditions.

Hunger Game Past Arenas: Alaskan Wilderness (60th Games)

There was a frosty breeze in the air, as the 60th Games brought blizzards and snow as deep as twenty inches. Tributes had to compete with wolves, bears and eagles as well as fellow competitors, making it one of the most bloody games to date.                      Therefore, it was most surprising when an innocent enough young female tribute, Caspa Daughtry, from District 10 won by perfecting the art of camouflage and ruthlessness.

Hunger Game Past Arenas: Poison Paradise (50th Games)

For the second Quarter Quell, the Capitol decided to keep up with their tradition of mixing things up in the arena every 25th year. For the second quarter quell, each district was to reap twice the amount of tributes. Meaning 24 tributes were to meet their match in the arena, not just 12, in a gorgeous arena made of meadows and lakes and a single snow-capped mountain, but it’s beauty came at a poisonous price.
                         It was most surprising to see a victor rise from the furthest of districts. Haymitch Abernathy, of 12 fought bravely and harder than any tribute in history. Never since, has a tribute won from district 12, but what a tremendous fight Abernathy triumphed.

Hunger Game Past Arenas: Abandoned Slaughterhouse (58th Games)

“Don’t look behind you just keep running” - seemed to be the best word of advice for the 58th games, where tributes were seen journeying their way through one of the biggest buildings of old Panem. Tributes were let on the loose, given tools to make their own special operations on victims in torture chambers, whether in the abandoned morgues many levels underground, or chasing them up and down the spiral staircases.
                             Victor, Marcus Coin of District 3 won his way out of the arena by capturing tributes, and tortured them in often excruciatingly brutal ways. Most shockingly, Capitol favourite, 11 year old District 8 tribute, Ellie Vickers. He managed to kill a record-breaking 18 tributes out of twenty-four! The most any tribute has managed to kill in one arena! The odds were in Marcus’ favour!

Hunger Game Past Arenas: The Shrinking City (36th Games)

What seemed to be a very standard arena at first, turned out to be one of the most exciting and tense games of Hunger Games history. Tributes were led to an island of buildings, squares, and towers, and day by day, walls would close in, buildings would collapse into dust and tributes would fall.
                           Deadly victor, sixteen year-old, Petra Foster, of District 1 showed Panem just how deadly she was. Her quick feet and mind kept her one step ahead of her fellow tributes, and she even broke the career trend, and turned against her allies in the first 24 hours. No one could stop her - she promised she would kill them all in her interview, and that she did. She came, and she conquered. Now, a mentor in her home district, volunteer tributes have fist-fights to get her to mentor them.

Hunger Game Past Arenas: Forest Fires (15th Games)

Tributes didn’t need to worry about freezing in this arena. What at first was thought to be a lovely forest arena, with twenty-foot tall trees and bushes as thick as fudge, within 24 hours it became the hottest place in Panem, with fires spouting everywhere at any given time.
                                  Winona Renly of District 7, won by her knowledge of the forest, growing up amongst the trees and shrubbery paid off, despite the burning flames. Winona fought to victory but only killed one tribute in the process - one of the lowest scores in victor history.

Hunger Game Past Arenas: Monument Valley (25th Games)

The first Quarter Quell for the Games was a landmark event for Panem, and in quell tradition there was a special twist to the games, never seen before - twice the amount of male tributes! So, two males and one female were reaped from each district, and what a surprise they had in store. The desert rockies (never seen before)! 
                                Since the odds were in favour of the boys that year, it wasn’t a shock to see a male victor. However it didn’t come easy. Heartthrob Harlow Slade of District 1 scrambled his way to victory after finally defeating fellow District 1 tribute, Troy, but brutally lost an arm in the final bloody match.
