My question is this. If you draw a spell, such as counter spell, which requires you to cast it only when a spell has just been casted. However you are playing against the Troll, and Orge Cheiftan, who have no intentions of casting a spell. Can you simply drop the spell, on the space you are on, for someone else to pick up? As if you were dropping a 5th item because you can only carry 4? Or are you forced to keep it until you aquire another spell, and then cast counterspell on yourself, just to get rid of it, so you can get back to drawing a new spell each turn if you begin your turn without a spell. (Wizard ability)
We have been playing that you must hold on to it, until you can cast it, but this significantly cramps the ability of the spell caster. Also dropping the spell, would allow any chacacter to pick it up on the landed spot. Thoughts on this?
