If you love the Hunger Games trilogy, you’re going to love going through all of the awesome Hunger Games party ideas in this Hunger Games party collection. Everything you need to throw one killer party!
With the release of the Hunger Games prequel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, I thought it would be fun to share some of the best Hunger Games party ideas out there!
These encompass all of the books before the prequel but now I need to come up with some fun ideas to go with the newest addition to the collection!

Hunger Games Party Games & Activities
These activities are actually perfect if you want something a little more low-key than an organized game, perfect if you’re hosting something before people go to see the movie together.
If you want full on games, there are a bunch of those too. Keep them fun and upbeat to counter the dark and deadly feel of the book.
