"Anyway, it's not like an actual Games. Any number of people will survive. We're just overreacting because – well, you know why. You still want to go, don't you?"

"It won't be like the others," I say firmly, trying to convince myself as well. Then the real beauty of the situation dawns on me. "This time Snow will be a player, too." (18.26-28)
It takes a special kind of courage to enter into a version of the Games for a third time. Most folks are too terrified to even make it through one.

More people might survive, but more people will probably die, too.
