No New Posts Ratmas Markets

Packed into the town square and sprawling into every adjacent side street, rows and rows and rows of wooden stalls display the wares of artisans from all over Panem. Nestled amongst them are stands offering all manners of food and beverages: giant pans filled with roasted vegetables, steaming vats of mulled wine and hot cocoa and spiced cider, large sausages stacked together in neat pyramids, poultry and fowl skewered together on a rotisserie, potatoes smashed flat and fried and served with cream, dough balls oozing with jelly, steamed rice flour cakes shaped like chickens and cows and sheep, strips of sugar-coated dough wrapped around wooden rollers and cooked over hot coals, and anything else you could possibly think to want. Buskers and carolers have set up on any street corner they can find.

The whole world is wreathed with evergreen boughs and festive garlands, decked with baubles and ribbons, illuminated with string lights and candles. A fresh blanket of snow covers rooftops and untrodden paths, hanging icicles turning awnings and overhangs into toothy smiles.

In the evenings, a bonfire is lit in the center of the square, an offering light and warmth to keep the winter at bay.

Other attractions: Market stalls; Nightly bonfire; Small fairgrounds, featuring a petting zoo furnished by District 10; Several carnival rides: a carousel, a slide tower, a giant swing; Carnival games; Frozen pond designated for ice skating; Sledding hill; Beerhall tent, featuring long tables and benches to enjoy your food and beverages out of the snow. There definitely isn't a black market.

No New Posts Town Square

Though most of what this district produces goes to the Capitol to be made into the fabrics seen on TV, District Eight's town square sells the best of what was not exported. Clothing stores and bakeries line this square. The Reaping also takes place here.

Board Information & Statistics

Board Description
District Eight
Grateful for the wool jacket that keeps you from freezing during Panem's winters? Thank the people of District Eight, whose lives generally revolve around the creation of textiles. From harvesting the materials (cotton, wool, fur, you name it), to refining them into thread or hide, to sewing the whole sock or blanket or shirt together, Eight's denizens are undoubtedly the masters of their trade. Unfortunately for them, it's not a particularly rich business, and they face fierce economic competition from fancier Capitol garments, leaving most of the citizens fairly poor.
Mayor Pierre Hope
