Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is based on a game featured in Andrzej Sapkowski's The Witcher novels, as well as a playable mini-game in CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt video game on PC and consoles. In it, players fight against each other in fast-paced card duels that combine bluffing, on the fly decision making and watchful deck construction. It’s played over a best-of-three series of rounds, as you unleash your hand by slinging spells and diverse units with unique abilities and use wily tricks to deceive your opponents.

Jump into Gwent: The Witcher Card Game and claim these gifts by downloading the game from the iOS App Store and Google Play for Android. It’s a free to play title with in-app purchases.
