In The Witcher, there is a card game called Gwent, where players are able to play alongside the main parts of the game, giving a welcome break to the normal gameplay.

Players are able to create decks that will help them defeat opponents, unlocking more cards as they gain experience. There are various game modes, including a quick online PVP mode. The game works very similarly to Hearthstone, and the cards are really beautiful.

Exploding Kittens was previously a physical tabletop game, but have transitioned onto mobile devices. It’s a wacky game where you need to make sure that you don’t get the exploding kitten card, and if you do, you use one of your cards to counter the kitten so that it doesn’t actually explode. There is a lot of sabotaging and hostility in this game, but it’s mixed with humour and funny cats.

Each time you play, you will be given a randomly generated set of cards, giving you a new challenge as you try to fulfil the needs of those who want your potions.
