If you are in the NFT gaming space for a while, then you would be familiar with "Mystery Box".
"Mystery Box", sometimes refers to as "Blind Box", is where players acquire NFT items in an NFT game. A mystery box contains one or many NFTs which are often used to play the games or have certain use cases in the game. Many games offer mystery boxes during their IGO (Initial Game Offering) stage where players (buyers) would usually get the genesis NFTs. But also, mystery boxes could be offered in unlimited supply without any time framework.
Mystery boxes always come with different NFTs with different scarcities, that's why it is called "Mysterious". Buyers wouldn't know what exactly they will get until they open the boxes. The uncertainty of not knowing what is inside prior to the opening has made NFT gaming so interesting and fascinating.
