Anyone know of any games that use the rulebook as a mini game or something along those lines?

Krosmaster: Arena uses the rulebook kind of like a videogame tutorial where place the pieces on the rulebook itself and play intro scenarios

Here the truceless armies yet / Trample, rolled in blood and sweat; / They kill and kill and never die; / And I think that each is I. // None will part us, none undo / The knot that makes one flesh of two, /
badge
Sick with hatred, sick with pain, / Strangling -- When shall we be slain? // When shall I be dead and rid / Of the wrong my father did? / How long, how long, till spade and hearse / Puts to sleep my mother's curse?

The ASL rulebook - the only winning move is not to play.

This is probably not what you are looking for but Tombs: The Sword of Valhalla is a one page game with rules interwoven into the story.

In Risk Legacy, the rulebook changes over time, and sometimes players can choose how they modify it. Stickers are placed over existing rules to override old rules or placed in blank slots to add new rules.

In Jamaica, the rulebook is designed as a treasure map.

In several Vlaada Chvatil games, the rulebook is presented by a guide who acts as a dynamic teacher, with anecdotes and such. And in his Dungeon Lords, you have some puzzles to do for practice to help you understand how the game will sanction what you build in it...

For Dungeon Twister, you can find on the net several puzzles which helps you understand the different character's skills (and may give you a real challenge to solve)
