    Overall, those who love GWENT already should absolutely grab it on mobile – particularly if you’re a PC player, as you can just pick up where you left off and play the same account on the go. Newcomers should also check it out, as mobile is the best platform for it – particularly if you have an iPad and can take advantage of the larger screen.

    Although similar in some respects to Hearthstone, the tactical depth and ability to deploy game-changing combos keeps it fresh and distinct, the touchscreen port playing even better than the PC original. There’s still an undertone of pay-to-win but provided you don’t take things too seriously it doesn’t spoil the fun.

Much more free to play friendly than the likes of Hearthstone. Couldn't recommend more Expand

    Best CG on the AppStore! I’ve played them all. This is also by far the easiest on your pocket and can be totally F2P without hurting your progress.

    Fantastic port of a fantastic card game . Balanced with a lot of depth , stunning card art . Much less pay to win than others .

    Fantastic port of a fantastic card game . Balanced with a lot of depth , stunning card art . Much less pay to win than others .
    I made a meta deck within 2 weeks spending just £5 on the cheapest starter pack and it was fun climbing the ranks up to that point gradually building and improving the deck.

    Fast to build a good ftp deck with plentiful free resources. Recommend beginners to join Gwent reddit and look up Team Leviathan gaming or Team Aretuza for much helpful getting started advice.

Balance is great due to monthly patches, card art is top notch, and your decisions matter greatly (there are very few games where a lucky draw decides the outcome). Expand

    This is by far the best card game I’ve played so far. I used to be an avid hearthstone player over the last 4 years. Gwent beats it handsThis is by far the best card game I’ve played so far. I used to be an avid hearthstone player over the last 4 years. Gwent beats it hands down. The best-to-3 round play-style adds genuine and complex strategy elements that other card games claim they have but never come close to. The fact that you mulligan at the beginning of each round and play only with that hand lets Gwent escape the feel-bad rng vibe at the core of HS and many other card games. The art work is incredible. The fact that the lore of the cards is based on an internationally renowned book series (and soon to be tv series) makes the world feel much more immersive than any other card game I’ve played. What’s more, and maybe most importantly, the *value* of legendary and top tier cards is extremely accessible. Money is, generally, easy to make. A customizable and fun reward system lets you pick different paths to goodies. Additional weekly rewards give out consistent free card packs, called kegs, along with free cards. The mill value of cards doesn’t at all feel predatory or money-grabbing. Unlike every card game of played, it is viable for new players to start up and soon have enough resources to create optimized decks. The negatives of this game are tiny imo, but here they are: first, the tutorial is awful. It takes a long time and will leave you feeling clueless about the game. Make sure to look things up online and you’ll get the hang of it fast. Second, the game has 3 different loading screens and each one takes like a minute (could be my old phone, I’m on a 6s). Give it a try!! The community is awesome Expand
