Gwent is one of the latest digital card games by CD Project Red the creators of the Witcher series and Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is pulled straight from The Witcher III and is now a stand alone free to play card game available on GOG Galaxy. Recently I got to try Gwent and it's a really interesting take on the digital card game genre. At a high level you need to beat three rounds against your opponent by having more attack power on the board. You can do this in many ways and some rounds you might want to push on so you can win in the later ones making it a very strategic and interesting game.

If you want to try out the Gwent beta hit me up in the comments and i'll hand out beta keys to the first 3 people that want one!

I loved Gwent in the game, so I was interested in this. I don't know if there's a solo mode, but it seems there's a PVP mode, so I haven't checked it out yet since I'm not interested in full PVP. I signed up for the beta and I believe I have access to it, I just haven't tried it yet,

There are ALOT of digital card games out right now and CD Project Red is pretty liberal with beta codes. If somehow you want to try it and you're not in, let me know and i'll get you a code!

Confirmed, I do have my own code. It's for GOG, are your codes GOG, Steam, or what?

GOG. Gwent isn't on Steam yet.

Ok, I played it a little bit, at least the tutorial parts. It is slightly different than the Gwent in The Witcher 3, in that it seems like there are more, or even new, abilities. Other than that, it's essentially the same, although the board doesn't look exactly like it does in the game. There is a single player "Practice" mode and a "Multiplayer" mode. I'm not sure how deep "Practice" is, perhaps I'll check it out sometime, but this still seems to be centered on PVP, which (in reference to your new post) makes me "rage quit." LOL

Well, since I was a Gwent beta tester (I signed up for the beta and played once), they're giving me a free copy of the Witcher 2 (which I already have). Now I have a key to get rid of. I think I'll try out our key giveaway system.
