|Winning District||District 7|
|Preceeded by||70th Hunger Games|
|Followed by||72nd Hunger Games|
The 71st Hunger Games were considered to have a surprise twist, courtesy of its Victor, Johanna Mason. Throughout her time in the Capitol, as well as during most of her Arena, Johanna pretended to be weak, frail, and hysterical, crying throughout her interviews and Training sessions. As a result, she was written off as an eventual casualty in that year's Hunger Games. Even other Tributes ignored her in the Arena, believing her to not even be worth killing.
However, Johanna was, in reality, an incredibly cunning strategist and efficient killer, particularly when it came to the use of throwing axes, which she managed to procure at some point during the Arena. Once the number of Tributes was low enough, she showed her true abilities, easily picking off her unsuspecting competition until she emerged victorious.
The details about the Arena of the 71st Hunger Games are currently unknown.
- Johanna Mason is not the only Victor known to have deliberately underscored in order to gain an advantage in the Hunger Games.
