Gwent cards are playing cards used in an ancient dwarven card game in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

There are at least three different factions decks in Gwent: the Scoia’tael, the Northern Realms, and the Nilfgaardian Empire. Each deck has unique cards, passive perks, and leader abilities. Cards can be purchased from vendors, unlocked during quests, and found throughout the world.
