Fan favourite

Originally featured as a card game within The Witcher 3 released back in 2015, GWENT is a turn based card game played across three rounds. Players must either play a card or end their actions, with rounds being won or lost by the highest score. This style of play requires players to make long-term decisions and build decks around specific tactics, resulting in a card game deeper in complexity than similar titles. After the huge success of market-leader Hearthstone and the clones that followed, online card games have struggled to strike a balance between accessibility and complexity. GWENT's focus on community interaction and response has created a fun card game with lots of room for deck building. Free to play rewards are much more generous than other titles with daily sign in bonuses and reward choices.

New kid on the block

GWENT is a solid card game which plays slower and more thoughtfully than its competitors. Whether or not this style of gameplay will convince a large enough audience to become self-sustaining is another question, but the initial signs are good.
