    I am good at climbing so I would climb up in the trees like Rue (though I'm not as petite as Rue) and hide as much as possible only coming down in the evenings when possible.

    I would climb trees like Rue, but would not form an alliance. I would also steal from people like foxface and wait for everyone to kill each other, but if i had to kill I would.

    I'd like to say I'd be resourceful and possibly make myself handy with a weapon or two but let's be honest; I'd just hide, near a water source, and steal food when I could.

    I would most likely hide or try to hide. If not I would follow instincts to the best of my ability and fight for survival!

    I would definitely do hide and seek. I think that the trees were a good hiding spot and stay somewhat close to water!

    hide high in a tree or in a cave, or like Peeta did, under the ground.

    I would ally with a few people and then we'd split up once it was just us left in the arena.

    I would probably hide somewhere and try to make an alliance if I could.

    I would make sure to stay near water as well as hunt and gather, I wouldn't worry about the supplies. I would also try to destroy the other tributes supplies and starve them out. I would use the element of surprise and attack them from trees and jump on them if needed.

    I would hide and try to outsmart the other tributes by being sneaky.

    I wouldn't. I would end up protecting someone younger than myself. My intense maternal instinct would kick in and I would fight only to protect someone and would eventually accept my death if it meant saving them. Depressing, but true.

    I would do like Haymitch and outsmart them, I would get out of their way and let them fight it out until only a few remain. I would find food and shelter to strenghten myself for the big final fights. I would examine my opponents and attack their weak spots. Im small so I can climb trees and take that advantage, I could also use a knife to trow at them and mainly outsmart them!
