Offer yourself up as tribute, because The Hunger Games are going on sale. On May 20th, The World of The Hunger Games auction is going to be selling off a whole catalog of items from the film franchise, including a number of Katniss’ bows.

In a move reminiscent of the movies themselves, interested buyers will be able to enter the auction arena and battle it out for ownership of hundreds of items used in the movies, including weapons, furniture, and vehicles. Among the items on auction are small props like the glass “Reaping Bowl,” still filled with little sealed names (all Primrose Everdeen!), a collection of Effie Trinket’s outlandish outfits, and full 20-foot-tall Peacekeeper vehicles. But, according to People, auction expert Joe Maddalena says that it is the collection of Katniss’ bows that will be the real draw. Whether you want to grab one of the wooden bows that Katniss used to hunt in her home District, or the more advanced bows she used in the Hunger Games, both will be available.

The massive auction aims to make items available to both high-end buyers and average collectors with the starting price of most things ranging from $100 - $10,000. Maddalena tells People that the auction is expected to fetch over $1 million in total. 

Bids can be placed online, but there will also be an in-person auction at the Profiles In History auction house in Los Angeles. In-person bids should be placed by raising a three-finger salute. May the odds be ever in your favor.
