The Hunger Games Simulator is a web-based simulation game that allows players to create their own rosters, as well as use tributes from the 74th and 75th Hunger Games, for a virtual arena deathmatch using custom avatar images and names for the tributes. Upon submission, the simulator generates an outcome through a series of events during which all but one are killed in some manner. Since its launch on December 25th, 2014, hundreds of screen captures, thousands of tweets, and many videos of users' simulations have been shared on Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, 4chan and many other places online.
The simulator was conceived and structured by Jacob and brought to life by the Brant on December 25th, 2014. The concept and rules of the Hunger Games Simulator are inspired by the book and film The Hunger Games. Just as in the book, the Hunger Games simulator features two participants from each of the 12 Districts, allowing for a total of 24 individual avatars to be added. On top of this, the simulator allows users to increase the tribute-limit to 36 and 48 (2-4 tributes per district).
