I'm not whether this has been asked. Is it possible for a player to play Sympathy Pain in response to the damage from an opponent's Sympathy Pain? It seems it is technically possible as EACH player can play only 1 Reaction Spell per turn.

...and outside your turn. Reactions are only played out of turn, which means it is legal in a 3+ player game but not a 2 player one

Top of rules p. 11: "Players may play reaction spells during other player's turns as well as their own."

Playing a reaction spell on your own turn is a pretty cool trick -- you can do things like this:

1. play an Anchornaut on your side.
2. use its ability to kill itself.
3. play Summon Sleeping Widows as a reaction to its destruction.

Perhaps not the most cost-efficient way to pull that off, but still a surprise for your opponent :-)

This allows you to attack with the widows in the same turn.

Not quite. Attacking requires a Main action, and Anchornauts costs a Main action to play. So if you wait until your next turn to suicide your Anchornauts you can attack with the spiders the same turn as they come into play, but it will still require two total turns from playing the Anchornauts to attacking with the widows.

Yup. Lots of ways to pull it off. I just threw it out there as an example of one way you could trigger your own reaction spell without waiting for your opponent to do it. There are more :-)

Another neat trick (which probably has been posted up) is to use a ceremonial dice to bring back an Ally unit back with low attack value into your hand (e.g. Enchanted Violinist), deal your own PB a or some damage, and immediately after play Sympathy Pain and kill the opposing PB who only has 3 or less life remaining.
