You may have heard there was a movie last year called Hunger Games.
It was....kind of a big deal. A lot of people went to see it.
So naturally, they made a sequel.
If you haven't heard of it, well, Wikipedia that thing because this
is a game store, not IMDB. I mean, c'mon. It's been out for a year.
Anyway, Catching Fire is the second book in the series It follows
the events of the previous novel, a rebellion against the oppressive
Capitol has begun, and Katniss and fellow tribute Peeta Mellark
are forced to return to the arena in a special edition of the
So yeah. Thanks for not getting killed. Let's do it again.

Last but not least:
CATCHING FIRE: SEEDS OF REBELLION
Ever since you were eligible for the Reaping, the Peacekeepers
had their eye on you – the food supplies that went missing,
the graffiti denouncing the Capitol – they had a good idea it
was you. Until now, you thought it best to steer clear of open
conflict, but the whispers for volunteers to help the rebellion
made it clear it was time for you to take action. When you
finally reached the leaders of the rebellion, your reputation
had preceded you.
Glad to have your skills, they immediately assigned you to
your current mission: to set up secret bases throughout Panem.
If you succeed in Catching Fire: Seeds Of Rebellion, your efforts
will ensure at least a chance for the rebels to make a difference.
Fail, and they won't stand a chance...
So there you have. Play the Hunger Games without risking
your neck or even leaving your home.
