A quarter quell is a special Hunger Games held every 25 years. They each have a special rule. For example, in the first quarter quell, the tributes were elected. In the second one, there were twice as many tributes. In the third one, the tributes were all former hunger games winners.

The Quarter Quell is a special version of The Hunger Games that occurs every 25 years. It punishes the Districts even more than the regular games do. The Quarter Quell occurs in Catching Fire

What is a quarter quell?

The Quarter Quell is a year in Panem where children get sent into the Hunger Games, just like every time, but it is also different: Every 25 years (which is a quarter), they change the normal Hunger Games, and make it harder for tributes to win, or just plain rude with the obstacles they throw in. Example: Making four tributes from each district participate in the Hunger Games, or sending in victors to compete for the second time.

What are the first two quarter quells in Catching Fire?

In the 25th Hunger Games, the tributes were voted into place by the people of their own district.In the 50th Hunger Games, four tributes were chosen from each district instead of the usual two. This put twice as many people in the arena, and made it twice as brutal. Haymitch Abernathy won in the second Quarter Quell.The 75th Hunger Games had past victors from earlier Hunger Games compete for a second time. This action was made to destroy any bonds the districts had with each other and to make them feel weak. It was meant to be a reminder to the citizens of the districts that "even the strongest among them cannot overcome the power of the Capitol".
