In a blog published on the official MTG website, Annie Sardelis explained that the idea of printing the minigames came from the 2019 Hackaton. "I pitched creating some minigames that could be played with a booster pack," she wrote. "Not just any kind of minigame, but rather ones that may not require playing Magic at all."

Here are the 5 minigames you can find in a Zendikar Rising Set Booster:
