Twilight. The Wizards Limited Edition version wrote:Environment. One environment card in play is immediately discarded. This card may also be played as a resource.. Upon the very Eve of Midsummer, when the sky was blue as sapphire and the white stars opened in the East, but the West was still golden, and the air was cool and fragrant, the riders came...to the Gates of Minas Tirith.-LotRVI
Twilight. The Wizards Unlimited Edition version wrote:Environment. One environment card in play is immediately discarded. This card may also be played as a resource. This card may be played at any time during any player's turn.

CRF, Errata (Cards), Twilight wrote:Card Erratum: Add "This card may be played at any time during any player's turn."
Can target a card that has not yet resolved. Can be played as a resource during your
opponent's turn.
Twilight. Lidless Eye version wrote:Environment. One environment card (in play or declared earlier in the same chain of effects) is cancelled and discarded. Twilight may also be played as a resource, and may be played at any point during any player's turn. The sun dipped and vanished, and as if at the shuttering of a lamp, black night fell.-LotRII
There are at least* three version of the card. "Twilight. The Wizards Unlimited Edition version" is "Twilight. The Wizards Limited Edition version" with CRF errata applied.
Text of "Twilight. Lidless Eye version" states the it "may be played at any point" that beats any timing restrictions.

This gives the card the abilities without parallel to any other cards and that seems to be insane.
Existence of a version of a card that introduces a changes beyond errata is a problem too.

I propose the following erratum:

Regardless of edition from which the given version of Twilight comes, the text of Twilight (without citation) sounds:
"Environment. One environment card in play is immediately discarded. This card may also be played as a resource. This card may be played at any time during any player's turn."

*) I do not know the versions included in Challenge Decks, or in Balrog sets.
We will not speak of such things even in the morning of the Shire.
