The world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is sprawling, detailed, and filled with seemingly countless things to do, including the card game Gwent. Geralt can play Gwent against a range of characters and win anything from random items to unique cards. In the “Collect ‘Em All” Witcher 3 quest, players are tasked with finding and acquiring every single Gwent card in the game.
With such a massive world to explore and so many easily missable activities, collecting all 196 cards is quite a daunting task. Between the sheer volume of cards and the various ways they can be obtained, finding them all is no small feat. Here are all the ways to collect Gwent cards as well as their locations in the game.

There are several ways players can acquire Gwent cards: buying from vendors, winning Gwent matches, and receiving them as rewards for quests. The simplest route is to purchase them from vendors such as innkeepers and traders. Playing a Gwent match against NPCs requires a bit more effort, but such characters are easy to find. However, certain cards can only be obtained by completing quests. It is important to take note of these quests to complete Collect ‘Em All.
Purchasing Gwent Cards in The Witcher 3
Players can begin their Gwent collection by purchasing cards from various sellers. Below is a list of vendors who sell Gwent cards and their locations.

Note that Olivier at the Kingfisher Inn can be missed if Geralt helps Anisse and Berthold in the “Now or Never” quest. If he dies, he will be replaced by an unnamed innkeeper.
In each region, players can challenge NPCs to a game of Gwent to win random cards from them. While the world of The Witcher 3 is quite large, there are designated folks in nearly every town that one can challenge to a match. Common characters like innkeepers, crafters, and merchants are often willing to play Gwent. However, it is important to note that Geralt can only win one card per NPC. After that first victory, they will give him items instead.
Throughout The Witcher 3, players will receive various quests that reward cards upon completion. These are particularly important since many of these cards cannot be obtained in any other way. The first type is Gwent quests, which are specifically centered around the card game.
