    After years of iteration as a minigame and in beta, Gwent has come into its own as a great card game. It emphasizes keen decision-making over chance, and a great back-and-forth buildup ratchets up the tension across multiple rounds. With a great variety of decks and strategies at its disposal, as well as strong incentives to play match after match, Gwent proves great ideas can come from small beginnings.

    Gwent clearly learns from other digital collectible card games that have carved their niche out of the market, but its play style offers up an entirely different type of challenge. It's one that requires some investment, and hard decisions on which Faction you'd like to invest in, but Gwent also respects your time by rewarding you for nearly every action in a match, tempting you to play just one more. Its matches could use some fine-tuning in their pacing and presentation, but Gwent is otherwise a refreshingly new take on card games that establishes itself firmly outside of the simple side activity it was in The Witcher 3.

    The price of this intricacy is that Gwent is anything but accessible... It feels both remarkably grown-up, and finely aged by its years of open development. [Jan 2019, p.120]

    From Witcher III minigame to a proper title: let's try GWENT's final release.

    Gwent is a nice card game, but its final version is totally different from what everyone expected.

    Beautiful game. CD Projekt generous and skillful developers
    You have to think before every move.
    Especially when you get to higher rankings,

    Nope. I will stick to witcher RPG games. This one isn't witcher, don't even download it for the Witcher. It's a gwent game but online. And asNope. I will stick to witcher RPG games. This one isn't witcher, don't even download it for the Witcher. It's a gwent game but online. And as you may know, it was a great game in witcher 3, but without Yenefers unicorn and foreplay it's not interesting. We don't need more gwent, we need more witcher. Go back and bake me some Triss cookies instead of this.

    It's not bad, I expected nothing and I'm still disappointed because you can make it better, you even showed it in thronebreaker. Why this one is different on so many levels?

I played a lot beta and really enjoyed it. It was fast paced and interesting. Sadly the Homecoming come in and destroyed everything what I liked about Gwent. This is a disappointment now and I know I am not the only one feeling like that. On top of that I dont understand the business model of developers - after destroying my collection of cards from beta I got enough scraps to have ALL cards in Homecoming and half of the scraps still left (and my beta collection was not full). I think this game will be dead soon as it will not be profitable. Expand

    For me, this game has only 2 pluses:
    1. Cards are drawn perfectly.
    2. I'm a fan of the world of The Witcher. Only these two things I can

    Only these two things I can say is good. Otherwise, this is probably the worst card game I've played. No balance, a lot of bugs, a terrible attitude of the developers. If you are not a fan of the Witcher universe , do not waste your time on it.

    Gwent beta was fun,but Homecoming is boring trash game. CDPR should fire new gwent director Katarzyna Redesiuk for biggest fail in CCG history.
