Welcome back to Celebuzz’s 100 Days of Hunger Games countdown. Today we bring you another installment of our A-Z Encyclopedia. We’re diving into the heart of the book with all the awesome oddities and lingo of the Hunger Games. So what’s up this week? The launch room.

The launch room is where the tributes wait before being released into the arena. In the book, Katniss analyzes the room: “In the Capitol, they call it the Launch Room. In the districts, it’s referred to as the Stockyard. The place animals go before slaughter.”

Watch the video to find more out about the launch room and come back tomorrow for more 100 Days of Hunger Games.
