Minigames general overview
Many Old School RuneScape players are not familiar with concept of minigames created by Jagex. They were created a very long time ago to give adventurers of Gielinor short activities which they can complete for various rewards.
Minigames revolve around concept of being short and not too time consuming. Most of them also has implemented puzzles and require completion of a certain objective. Rewards usually come in form of experience lamps and small items. If you come across red star on the map which looks like quest icon with different color - this is a sign that Minigame is available in that location. The main difference between Minigame and a Quest is that first one can be completed as many times as player wants.
If you want to participate in a minigame you have to head to its location and usually talk to NPC or activate an item which is connected to it. There is also Group Finder implemented in the game which can be found in the quest interface. By selecting a desired minigame from the dropdown menu you can access minigame chat where other players are looking for party members. If you manage to find whoever you need, you can also use this tool to teleport yourself to minigame location.

You go inside a cave located in Mor Ul Rek which is also known as TzHaar City and all you need to do is to survive increasingly harder waves of enemies.
