    First, find a good outdoor space to play. A large open field near trees, in the middle of a forest, a beach, or even just your neighborhood! You also need to get "weapons" such as foam pool noodles, fake swords, fake bow and arrows, and balls to throw at people.

    (Optional) Host a Reaping! Put the names of everybody who's playing in a bowl and have somebody pick people from each district. If you have 4 people, choose 4 districts, 1 person from each district. If you Have 12, you can have 12 different districts. If you have 16 people, choose 8 districts and put 2 people in each district. What you could do for the reaping is first draw a name(s)for District 1, then District 2, and so on.
