Hello there people! My names Rabbit and today for my first ever debut post (Lord help me!), I’ll be talking about Gwent. The Witcher 3’s much-celebrated card game.
Some of you may already be familiar with the vast and hauntingly beautiful world of The Witcher. Some may have no idea what I’m talking about “Never heard of it!” which is of course fine! The beauty of Gwent is that it may be enjoyed by both long term fans of the series and newcomers alike.
If like me you have been scratching your head wondering what on earth to do with your time during this lockdown. Or perhaps even you have too much choice and are thus conflicted on the idea of starting something anew. Gwent caters for both. Whether you only want to enjoy a 5-minute game or perhaps to indulge a hunger for more of what The Witcher has to offer. Gwent is now readily available both on Android, IOS and steam for free.
Gwent will take you on a journey into the divine palaces of mighty king and queens, to the squalid ruins of what once was, to bars, bogs and malicious corners of The Continent.
In Gwent, you may choose from several factions, each with their unique leaders to be the head of your deck. With the addition of the reward book, playing as your chosen leader will net you additional card packs for further building your arsenal, Materials for crafting unique cards and cosmetic items/skins for your leaders.
Strategy and deliberation are key to overcoming your opponent in Gwent. Thankfully there are numerous guides and step by step tutorials on how to better your game, readily available online by fellow players should you find yourself struggling.
The unique style of gameplay and visual effort put into Gwent is what sets it apart from Its competition. The amount of time taken to create the artwork and how the developers honour Its creators by stamping each piece with their name, all add to what is a truly brilliant game. Born from a mini-game in The Witcher 3 blossoming into a standalone game spanning multiple platforms. Even securing its place within eSports. Gwent has a little something for everybody.
Should you find yourself wanting to try Gwent. Explore the training mode against the AI. Take some time to familiarise yourself with the different leader’s abilities and decks. After a while, you’ll be exploring how best to utilize your units to exploit your opponent’s weaknesses. Once you’re ready take your best deck and mindset into the seasonal mode.
