A strategy that sees a player place many cards on one row.
This strategy prioritises playing more units on one row than the other, and is sometimes desired to unlock further synergy between units or to avoid playing into cards that target specific rows. It may also happen accidentally when a player does not consider placement. Rowstacking may play into wide removal.
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.
