I surprisingly still haven’t played The Witcher III (I’m thinking of getting to it during the holiday break), but I have heard plenty about Gwent, the in-game fully realized card game this is now spinning off into its own game. I was pretty excited to try this – as I’m a longtime Magic: The Gathering player, and generally enjoying card games – and was pretty happy to get into the closed beta last month. To my surprise though, I didn’t get into it. Maybe I didn’t give it enough time, but I just couldn’t get a good handle on a proper strategy to use, having trouble wrapping my head around when to stop playing cards, or pushing my luck (and then being left with almost no cards for later rounds). I’m currently down on it, but who knows, I might be tempted to give it another try someday.
