230 5/12/2020 2:03:00 PM Turn 6 US Message so right about defcon not moving that was my fault. it should stay at 3. however missle envy states if event is opponent event, it does not trigger. so does not matter if i use it for ops or space race, you wont be able to activate it. then you are stuck using missle envy as ops for your upcoming play
229 5/11/2020 7:49:00 PM Turn 6 USSR Message What a confusion of a turn so far - please verify before I so my next turn
228 5/11/2020 7:48:00 PM Turn 6 USSR Message Okay a few things before we move on

Headline phase your card play was the Nuclear sub allowing you to coup in battle ground countries
without advancing the DEFCON.

In your turn just now you did a Coup and moved the DEFCON?

AND because you played a card as OPS that was a USSR card I get the benefit of the card's event- that's why I suggested you play on space race SO now unless you have the UN card I will gain
3 points AND If I am wrong about the timing of the DEFCON and it really drops to 2 then
by playing that card you set off Nuclear war as the event causes the DEFCON to move down 1.

I believe the situation SHOULD BE DEFCON should be NOW at 3 and will go to 2 unless you play the UN card as your next play.
227 5/11/2020 7:34:00 PM Turn 6 US Message whoops sorry i thought it was already played lol
