Hunger Games Facts - True or False Quiz

Photo of Hunger Games podcastThis week, because it is a Hunger Games special, we're going to blindfold you and keep force-feeding you with a giant spoon and a plastic funnel until you guess what you are eating.

So, you will have to eat up quickly, otherwise you will get full up and messy. Try not to choke.

No, only joking. We were going to do that, but we had an ever better idea. We've called it 'Hunger Games, Real or Not Real', like Peeta keeps saying in the film.

You each have an envelope and inside are some questions that you have to ask each other.

There is no timer, you simply have to decide if the questions are true or false, and then look at the answers. There are 15 questions in total, but are they Real or Not Real?

No need for a double-headed coin this week then.
