I was playing the AI on the Steam version. I tried to "Defcon Suicide" the US player with Lone Gunman, and the game pinned the loss on me. Can you just not do that on the computer version? Or did I do it wrong?

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

If you are the Phasing Player, and through your actions cause the DEFCON to drop below 2, you lose the game. (Global Thermonuclear War happened on your watch.)

So you did a coup when the AI played Lone Gunman as the US? And you lost as USSR?

That would be another bug.

Unless he was under CMC, then the loss would be on him.

I have not seen any issues with DEFCON suicide in the Playdek version.

OP, here is a link to the Cuban Missile Crisis corner case that MichaelVal was talking about:

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/497436/who-loses-cuban-miss...

If the US on his turn played Lone Gunman at Defcon 2 and you tried to coup a battleground to drop Defcon to 1, you would win UNLESS Cuban Missile Crisis was in effect against you and you were barred from couping. If you have no influence in Cuba to remove, you are out of luck and he gets out of defcon suicide Scot-free!

Rather than speculate, it would be more productive for the OP to describe the situation more fully.
