There are four mini-games to be found in The Witcher:
- Dice poker — a good way to make, or lose orens quickly.
- Fistfighting — also a good way to make money, more certain than poker and also a way of getting into some areas.
- Drinking contests — a definite path to information and some goodies.
- Romance cards — a unique mini-game in which the player collects "naughty" playing cards for Geralt's sexual conquests.
