Enter to Win a Copy of The Hunger Games Unofficial Cookbook [Updated]!

hunger-games-cookbook_opt.jpg
This is part three of Gut Check's Dinner and a Movie feature of The Hunger Games. Part one, featuring barbecued freshly snared rabbits à la Katniss, was published Wednesday, and part two, a review of the film, was published Thursday.

It's a big day. Not our wedding day or even sandwich day big, but still, a big day nonetheless. Today The Hunger Games film is released nationwide, which means fans of this YA franchise (and their parents, or for others, their fellow adult nerds) across the country will be flocking to theaters to see if on-screen Katniss lives up to the Katniss conjured in their imaginations.

After a marathon week of anticipation at Gut Check HQ -- a rabbit was barbecued...need we say more? -- we're excited to auction off one copy of The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook by Emily Ansara Baines, so that you, too, can know the thrill and eventual horror of cooking woodland animals.

Update: Congrats to commenter @dalebo for his answer, "Sword. Most like a lightsaber."

It would be a roll of surgical tubing. With which I am able to make a sling shot, Hawaiian sling for catching fish, snare pig trap. Other is the most valuable thing in my survival bag, With it I can hunt birds, fish, rabbits, pigs, you name it. It also has many self defense and first aid uses.

I'd vote for a bow and arrow too...I don't think I could I would want to be close enough to the other competitors to have to use a knife or ax or something similar.

I'd go for a sword or knife for their versatility.

Obviously some of the previous commenters have little to no survival training.  I would choose a knife...no brainer.  In addition to it being a weapon it can make other weapons like spears, bows, fire weapons, clubs, and especially traps.

Thanks guys for making it easier for me to kill you in the games.  I won't go hungry.  A Marine.

Bow and arrow, it doesn't seem to have actual guns in the games. Bows and arrows in the right hands would be accurate, swift, and quiet. Once shot, they would not give away your hiding position to other tributes. A gun would make too much noise and a knife woud require too much close contact. Give me a bow/arrow and call me Katniss!

I'm a bow and arrow type, because a knife or similar would require me to be too close for comfort.
