How The Trickster Works Answers to the Riddles of The Trickster Event
Gwent: Rogue Mage shakes up the traditional Gwent experience by adding elements of roguelike: traversing various additional routes across the continent, creating a deck one random set at a time, and participating in various events that offer both opportunities and risks.

Events are one of the most dynamic and transformative aspects of the game. Providing new cards, giving the player the opportunity to play with Energy, and giving the player the opportunity to exchange treasures for unknown rewards — events can create or interrupt a series. One of the most challenging events is the Trickster, which offers a series of riddles. Here’s everything a player needs to know about the Trickster event.
How the Trickster works
Randomness is one of the best components of roguelike: it is what makes the game interesting, changing elements with each passing. The player never knows the exact order of enemies, the location of cards or the distribution of treasures, so surviving to the end is always a unique task, so beginners need all the help they can get.

The Trickster event is one of the best examples of the roguelike formula in action in Gwent: Rogue Mage. Moving around the map, players can engage in battle, collect treasures, gain access to Places of Power or start events. The player never knows what event will happen, and the probability of a Trickster appearing is very small. Even when a Trickster event happens, the riddles he asks are random.
