Our Game Maker, Brandon Rubendall, is back! He’s seen the first round, assessed the skills of both the Tributes and their sponsors/mentors. Now, without further adieu, we present…the Battle 2 Pairings!

Now that there are only 12 Tributes it is up to you to decide who to sponsor. As before, there are different methods of sponsoring. Last year, Tributes went above and beyond, making videos for themselves to help propel them to the next round. In honor of that, just like last year, we will give any tribute who makes any kind of Broadway Hunger Games related video an extra 5 points (not per video, just overall)

Methods of Supporting Tributes:

Important note!: If you tweet your vote/sponsorship you MUST either tag @BroadwaySpotted somewhere in the post or use the #BwayHungerGames hashtag. Otherwise…how will we find it?

1. Voting. Each citizen of the capitol (that’s you) may vote ONE time per battle pairing. This gives the tribute ONE point. If you vote via comment below AND on twitter, that gives the tribute TWO points.

2. Capitol Citizen Sponsorship. As a citizen of the capitol you have the opportunity to sponsor your favorite tributes by letting everyone else know of their skills. Remember that YouTube video you watched where your tribute belted their face off? Post it in your voting comment to earn them an extra point. Has your favorite tribute won a Tony, have they been in more shows than anyone else? Mention this in your voting comment to earn them an extra point. PLEASE REMEMBER TO ONLY POST ONE COMMENT PER BATTLE PAIRING. Multiple comments will not result in more points for your tribute. However, should you want to split your comments up by battle, feel free to do so (i.e. you may comment 6 times on this post as there are 6 battles). Any of the above examples will get your tribute ONE extra point.

3. Mentors. If a fellow Broadway performer (from any Broadway show or National tour of a Broadway show) or writer/composer/etc votes for or sponsors a tribute, they will receive TWO extra points. Mentor help may come in the form of comments, tweets, videos, or anything they like. If a mentor makes a video, that is worth FOUR points.

If I am alerted of any videos posted, I will repost them for maximum viewing. Likewise, if any tributes or friends need help making a video, you have only to ask and we will help out. When giving a tribute your #MENTORPOINT, please identify yourself as a mentor so that no mistakes are made in counting votes.

Tune in Wednesday (4/23/14) for Effie Trinket’s recap of these battles to find out which Tributes will advance to BATTLE ROUND 3!!

For a complete list of battle pairings, click next page!

Note: I will be updating page two with any videos that come in from Tributes or in favor of Tributes from their friends. Check it out!
