Special thanks to Gnurrgard for inspiring this project by sharing his knowledge on CCG theory and giving us continued feedback.
A card is most commonly summoned to the board immediately after it was Spawned as a result of another card’s ability, such as Arachas Drones Spawned by Arachas Behemoth. However, there are also cards that can be Summoned from the graveyard or from the deck, such as Cerys an Craite. When a card is Summoned, it is not considered to be played, which means Deploy abilities on that card will not trigger.
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.
