Gwent: The Witcher Card Game Announced

This game from the digital realm is a competitive card game played over a series of rounds by two players. Each player tries to win two of the three possible rounds by having the greatest combined military force by the end of each round, after both players have passed or when both players no longer have cards left in their hand. Military force is accumulated by playing cards, each with a unique value and sometimes special effect.

Players take turns playing a single card from their hand into one of three rows on their side of the board. Close Combat cards are played in the row closest to your opponent, Ranged Combat cards are played in the row behind that, and Siege Combat cards are played in the row behind that. When a card is played, their combat strength is added to the player’s total. Some cards have special effects that trigger when they are played, or as passive effects that persist throughout the round.
