The beta version of Gwent, succeeded by Gwent 1.x on 23rd of October, 2018.
For installer help and issues see GOG Galaxy on AppDB
look below at the most recent installation.
Installing via GOG Galaxy. Playing the game. Building decks.
What does not
Audio is crackling, with pulseaudio and also with alsa only. I had to disable it completely (no wineaudiodriver).
Switching to another window and then back to the game causes it to freeze. Using a virtual desktop via winecfg solved the problem.
What was not tested
Buying kegs for real money. Friend match.
The audio problem is a shame, since otherwise it seems to run just fine with the workarounds. But no audio is sadly a huge drawback, therefore only bronze.
GOG Galaxy was installed using the guide(s) from here: WineHQ AppDB: GOG Galaxy. Afterwards I switched Windows version to win10.

at their website: https://www.gog.com/galaxy
make a small script to run the program:
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyCommunication.exe &
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyClient.exe &
Then use this script to get connected to Gog, download Gwent and click play to Play it.
That All, enjoy!
(in case you don't want to use the script)
To fix the timeout issue with gog, you must be sure that GalaxyCommunication is run before GalaxyClient.
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyCommunication.exe
cd /home/j2lapoin/Games/gog/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/GOG Galaxy
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyClient.exe
