Some examples  :
 
 

A basic move :





It's your turn to play. Your area is on the bottom, your holes 1, 3 and 6 are empty, you can't play them. You play the hole 4. This action leads to this new configuration :


A capture :







It's your turn to play. You have three seeds in hole 4, one seed in hole 5, and one seed in hole 6.
If you play hole 4, you reach hole 1 of your opponent's area :

Your last seed falled into hole 1 of your opponent, which contains two seeds now.
You capture them :


A multiple capture:
 
 


 
 
 

You play the hole 4 so that you reach hole 3 of your opponent's area :




Hole 3 of your opponent contains two seeds now, you capture them. But the previous hole contains two seeds as well, and the previous again contains three seeds. You capture all these seeds ... So, seven seeds are captured in a single turn !
