Guest author Quetzylus takes us back through Gwent's first year in Beta to review the road we've taken, and shed some light on the things yet to come.

Gwent was once just a minigame in The Witcher 3, a side-quest in the overall storyline of the RPG. But with the upcoming release of Thronebreaker, the tables will soon be turned, and role-playing will be Gwent’s minigame.

Turning a simple board game from a singleplayer RPG into a massive multiplayer CCG is by no means an easy task, but one that CDPR has undertaken with success so far.

Swim brings us an exciting new card reveal - Peasant Leader! The full text of the card reads: “Peasant Leader: Deploy: Spawn 2 Cows (1 strength) to the right and 2 Cows to the left.” Swim takes us through some cursory analysis of the implications of this powerful new Neutral silver card in the video above.

See Swim stream everyday from 5pm-11pm CEST at and check out his Youtube channel here.


Hello everyone!  Dale here, with a quick update about my experience at TwitchCon this year. First and foremost it was an absolutely amazing time and exceeded every expectation that I had. I got to meet up with both IAmMithranor and McBeard (who are as awesome in person as they are on stream) and the lovely OutstarWalker from GoG.  There were even a couple members of CDPR at the show floor giving away a streaming kit containing the starter pack and a faction pin (managed to snag Monsters and Skellige!). I wholeheartedly recommend going if you were on the fence and I hope to meet even more people next year!

You can watch me stream every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 6pm to 9pm US Central time over at and check out my Youtube channel here.
