Beginner Resources

Getting started with the game? Coming back after a break? Or just looking to brush up on some basics? Well, then you came to the right place.

What can you find here?
Our faction guides offer a thorough, yet easy to understand overview of each faction’s important keywords and archetypes. You might also find more general guides or certain aspects of the game that are useful and don’t worry, we have you covered when it comes to decks too!

Want to learn more?
We understand that reading articles is not the ideal way of learning stuff for everyone, that is why you can also watch our beginner videos on our YouTube or book a coaching session with us tailored to your needs. The articles and deck guides in this section are mainly aimed at beginners playing in ranked or casual. If you are looking for more advanced deck guides check them here and we can also help you with seasonal mode (soon tm).

Have any questions left?
We are here to answer them! We know starting a new card game can be overwhelming, but we are here to make your experience with Gwent better. Do not hesitate to leave a comment or join our discord! We have a dedicated channel for beginners and are happy to help.
