At the start, couldn't the German 8th Army and 1 corps in Insterberg become OOS by the Allies playing a 3 ops card and moving the Russian 2nd Army around to Konigsberg, the Russian 1 corps from Grodno to Tannenberg, and the Russian 1 corps from Szawli to Memel?

Is this not the case because the Russian 2nd Army would be in siege in Konigsberg and not have control of the port?

Keep in mind the special rules for the August 1914 turn.

See 15.1.12 on page 19: "Russian units may not attack, enter, or besiege a German fort space during the August 1914 turn." (these special rules are also found on the Player Aid card)

No.

15.1.12 Russian units may not attack, enter, or besiege a German fort space during the August 1914 turn.

Thanks guys. I don't know why I didn't see that. Sometimes the most obvious things seem to be missed at times.

Yep, as others mentioned...not allowed in the first turn. But you are correct in seeing a predicament that must be corrected (or at least counter-threatened) before the Allies first action on turn 2.

Indeed...this game has more exceptions to the rules than actual rules
