As he progressed further into the previously uncharted territory beyond the Giant's Drink, The Mind Game became a very influential part of Ender's life, and was the strongest connection to him during that time. This ultimately drew the attention of the Hive Queens to it as they were making their final stand in an effort to save their species from the humans before the Third Formic War.
The International Fleet kept the Mind Game in the school's computers even after the final victory over the Formics, and it was a popular diversion for colonists awaiting departure there after Battle School had been converted into a midway station known as Ellis Island. Upon learning more of the self-editing capabilities of this software, Bean suggested that it be employed to take care of Ender's pension account while he was traveling at relativistic speeds after his brother Peter Wiggin started withdrawing from his brother's account for financial support.

The re-engineered program evolved over time, and eventually became the investment counselor that presented itself to Ender as Jane when he got old enough to have to start paying taxes. The Giant's Drink was used as a psycho-analysis tool, and often if the student dwelt on the seemingly impossible game, they were to have suicidal thoughts; however, Pinual was the only student to kill himself after trying to beat the level.
In the game, there was a giant who asked the player to drink from one of the two cups in front of him. He said that if they won, he would take them to Fairyland. Normally, no one could get past this part, as both drinks would kill the player. However, instead of choosing between the two drinks, Ender Wiggin killed the giant by having his character burrow into the giant's eye.
As the giant's corpse fell to the ground, Ender's character found himself in the very same Fairyland that the giant had promised him. Fairyland was a place thought impossible to reach, seeing as to reach it, you would have to pass The Giant's Drink - a puzzle thought impossible to solve.
The Mind Game was not programmed to have a response to beating The Giant's Drink, so the game made up Fairyland which did not actually exist before Ender unknowingly created it.
