For example, I won the first round with 42:38, then I lost the second with 22:30 and the third round ends in 5:5.

All I was able to find was that the Nilfgaardian Empire will win any round that ends in a draw.

Besides that, will the game take previous rounds into consideration, is there a sudden death, or is the game simply a draw?
Also, how are the rewards distributed in case it really is a draw, and there is no winner?


1 Answer 1


According to this Reddit thread, when 2 non-Nilfgaardian players draw, you can choose to instantly rematch without consequence:

What if it's the third round? Does the game officially end in a draw?

Yes. You can instantly have a rematch without consequences.

This is further confirmed by the same thread stating that this is even the case in tournaments:

Even tourney games that end with draw can be repeated

This other Reddit thread also seems to confirm this:

In a regular draw you get a chance to replay.

This thread from the official Gwent forums claims with respect to awards:

The only strange thing is, if your whole match ends in a tie it counts as a win-win on endscreen, but doesn't give any rewards to anyone.

So to summarize:

A tie is considered a win for both players, but there are no rewards provided. You are also given the opportunity to play an entirely new match against the same opponent.

  • So do we replay the whole match or do we get 'one more round' with the cards left in the deck? I ask because in the first statement you use 'rematch' and in the last there is 'another round'.

  • @Fotti I would go with the more specific "other round", especially since that guide seems to be a more reputable source than Reddit. I tried to convey that in my summary, but I can make that clearer if you think it would help others in the future. Commented Jun 2, 2017 at 14:23
  • This answer is referring to the gwent minigame inside the Witcher game, not to the standalone Gwent game which is what the question was about

  • Ah, @blgt you're correct for the last link, and I'll edit that now, however I believe the other links are still referring to the standalone Gwent Commented Jun 2, 2017 at 14:29
  • @blgt Yes, I wrote my comment just before checking out that guide, where I was a bit confused.
