Teams of three to four students marched into the gym at Tulsa Community College's Northeast Campus on Tuesday morning carrying their teams' flags. Some dressed alike in matching bandanas, wigs and headgear. Then the groups started on their first challenge, and the first Engineer Games had begun. The event is modeled after the popular book series "The Hunger Games."
