I was not able to coup when my Soviet Opponent played CIA created at DEFCON 2

Recommended Posts

You did not have a legal target to coup.

USSR have to have influence in Africa, Central or south america for USA to coup at DEFCON 2.

 

This is one reason to play Fidel early on, so USSR cannot easily dump CIA like he did.

To expand a little on the answer above, you can click on the Defcon track or look for the mushroom cloud icons to see which regions you cannot perform coups or realignments in at certain Defcon levels.

 

5: No restrictions

4: Europe

3: Asia

2: Middle East

 

In your example, the only battleground coup targets available are in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East (often referred to as "early war regions") and Defcon is 2, so no coups are possible.

I see, thanks.

 

When I normally play a card from my hand, Coup is always an available action (i think).  So I was just assuming this was also the case when I have a "Re-action" operation, such as the one from CIA Created.

No, the same restrictions will apply to any card played. It's just that you start the game at Defcon 5 and you don't usually go for long without your opponent getting influence in a Mid War region.
