I always like the timeless classics though, like sun-tzu's art of war.

This must somehow be possible..... the way I found this game existed by was watching footage of it being played on youtube.com.

PC windows Defcon Screensaver???

where do I get it? online all I found was a version for mac OS.... where can I get the defcon screensavers, like the green wire spinning globe, for pc windows (XP)????

i'm sure this is a stupid question but I can't find it at the obvious places i've looked.

Still like this idea better...

I haven't made a T-shirt pic yet but I still say a shirt that says more about the game would be better...... Say, the DEFCON name above the mushroom cloud that's on the box cover, with the words "Everybody Dies" on it somewhere, in addition to Global Thermonuclear War .. and maybe a websit...

how about replacing the "launch warning" sound in the game with the norad in-house alert "arroooooooga!" siren like in the movie... when they first got the missle warning of the ICBM's coming in the movie, targeted for seattle and los vegas. I think that would be appropriate. i'd...

I just wanna know who spread the rumor that the russians don't have any long range ICBM's that can be fired at a moments notice. They have silos with ss-11, 13, 16, 17, 18 and ss-19 ICBM's (range 8,800 to 16,700 miles) out the wazoo.... in the mid eighties thier icbm count was near 1,600 (that's del...

Simultaneous sub launch

I read somewhere on the forums that you can use the shift key to somehow make all your subs in one fleet fire at one target at the same time..... but have not found out how to do this. Anybody help me out here? I have tried giving firing orders for a sub with the shift key held down but it only targ...

The only problem with adding stuff like this is that the next step would be including stuff like espionage, etc..... I HONESTLY believe that one of the merits of this game is the fact that it is strategic-level, so very little micromanagement to bog the game down..... a really good "beer and pr...

D'OH!!!!

Okay, who all has done this? Been enjoying a good game where victory is in your hands.. only a matter of how much of a victory- how many millions more you'll kill by end game... and BZZZZZT! you get the warning that the timer YOU set at the beginning of the game, without thinking ahead of time, is r...

First and foremost, a nice cigar.... since I like the long games, a churchill-sized..... and a beverage, either a nice mixed drink or coffee depending on my mood.

Cigar is mandatory though.

I think a 'civilian evacuation" or perhaps "ordering citizenry into shelters" options would have merit, in some way.... it would be interesting to have some sort of tally of destruction that helped to contribute to score.. right now it's soley based on population deaths.... in 'THE MO...

I never assumed the "battleship" unit was literally battleships.... since there are no more actual battleships per se.... I just assumed that the "battleship" icon represented a tactical warfleet, perhaps of mixed ship types (corvettes, cruisers, battlecriusers, destroyers, etc)....
