Common name of a player’s discard pile in CCGs and TCGs.

In Gwent, a card is most commonly sent to the graveyard when it is destroyed (its card power is damaged to zero) by an enemy unit. This removes the card from the board and puts it in the player’s discard pile. Cards are also sent to the graveyard when the player overdraws or decides to discard from hand. There are many different types of cards that can interact with the graveyard, such as Assire var Anahid, Freya's Blessing, and Xavier Lemmens.




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.
