Special thanks to Gnurrgard for inspiring this project by sharing his knowledge on CCG theory and giving us continued feedback.
An Order card may have multiple Charges attached to it when it is played. Other Order cards may give another unit, often an ally, additional charges which will allow an allied Order to be replayed, e.g. Reynard Odo. Note: This only works on cards that are printed with “Charge: X.”
Charge is found on cards across all of Gwent’s factions, though is commonly associated with Northern Realms.
As a big fan of the Witcher franchise, SwanDive is always on the lookout for her next Witcher fix. She started playing Gwent in the Closed Beta for the lore – and stayed for the game and the community. Long an avid gamer, Swan found her passion for CCGs and competitive gaming at the Gwent table. Away from it, Swan is studying for her Master’s degree in English and worked as content manager for Team Aretuza.
