I agree in part that there is and isn't a time to play the card. However,
the way we play it, countering someone's LOTI with another LOTI is
dependant on the first person's role. If Player A plays a LOTI on me and
chokes with a roll of 1, there's no need for me to play my LOTI.

<snip Card Text>
Luck of the Irish
Type: Special (Stinger)
Rarity: Common
Description: 0¥. Roll a D6, On a 4+ trash either a special card just=
one already in play.Notes: "I've got more luck in my little finger than
you've got in your whole
shilelagh, laddie!"Illustrator: Janet Aulisio

Card text says that trash a special card already in play or one just
played. I key off the phrase "just played." To me, that means either one
just laid down or one that has been rolled for. That seems to me to
stretch the amount of time you have to counter an opponents card.

Ultimately it could go either way. You're group should come to a general
consensus or roll for it. That way, you can avoid back-and-forth "did not,
did too" conversations like The Great Torgo Debate(sigh.... ;-)
