Gwent is an online card game based on The Witcher 3’s in-game side activity where the basic objective is to strategically have your three combat types; Close Range, Long Range, and Seige to have a higher numerical value than your opponent to win a round. First to win two out of there rounds is the winner.

Author’s Take: I’ll admit it, I only played two matches of Gwent in The Witcher 3, a game I also didn’t beat. But it’s refreshing to talk about an esport that’s not shooting or fighting.
