- When you do a victory dance when you've beaten 5 CPU players (by one point).
- When you purchased the following films on Amazon; Fail-Safe (2000), Dr Strangelove, War-Games.
- When you've dream about playing DEFCON.
- When you can't get to sleep at 3am in the morning, so you power up the Wide screen Laptop and finish at 6am. Looks nice in a dark room, downside unhappy 'other half'.
- When you've got a series of animated backdrops for your desktop showing DEFCON nukes landing.
- When you've cut out of Polystrene a Nuke Cone and place it on your desk at work. Explain that to shrink that you've got a scaled nuke on your desk :)

That happened to me in the first nights after the game was release. It NEVER happened to me before with any other game :shock:
