Gwent: Velen Players is a Secondary Quest in The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. Secondary Quests are optional Quests not required to finish the game. Some of these quests may have a bearing on certain Main Quests or may be a consequence of another Quest.

Gwent: Velen Players can be obtained by collecting the notice off of the Notice Board at Crow's Perch in Velen or challenging the Bloody Baron to a Gwent match in the same area. If Return to Crookback Bog has already been completed, the quest can be started by reading the note Gwent: Looking for New Players. This quest has Geralt defeat four of Velen's most noteworthy Gwent players and earn their special cards. 


Though you might think it unlikely, even war-ravaged Velen boasted many prominent gwent players. They possessed certain valuable cards which Geralt wished to add to his collection. To do that, he needed to defeat them. The first on his "To Fleece" list: the Bloody Baron.
