Beating The Capitol for the second time

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has released 11 new character posters. If you're up to speed with the books, then you'd be very excited to see these images. If not, then you'd probably have to get familiar with the Quarter Quell. Luckily for you, there is a short summary below:
Every twenty-five years there is a Quarter Quell edition of the Hunger Games. Quarter Quells mark the anniversary of the districts' defeat by the Capitol, and include special celebrations. The Games involves some sort of twist that makes them more disastrous or difficult to compete in, or watch. A small box contains small yellow envelopes containing specific instructions for each Quarter Quell. These instructions were planned at the founding of the Hunger Games, with plans in place for hundreds of Games. The President at the time selects the appropriate card and reads it on live television to announce the theme of that year's Quell. It is unknown how many Quarter Quells were planned ahead of time, but some suspect that the 75th had been changed so that Katniss would go back into the arena.

I guess what this description means to say is that being in the Quarter Quell is a big privilege. As for the contestants in the 75th anniversary, you may see the new Hunger Games: Catching Fire posters, by clicking the link below:

Synopsis: Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.
