A move is made by taking all stones from a pit on your own side and sowing them one-by-one in counterclockwise direction.
Your own kalaha (to the right) is included in the sowing, but the opponent's kalaha (to the left) is skipped.
There are three possible outcomes of a turn:
- The sowing ends in your own kalaha: It is your turn to move again.
- The sowing ends in an empty pit on your own side: All stones in the opposite pit (on the opponent's side) along with the last stone of the sowing are placed into your kalaha and your turn is over.
- Otherwise: Your turn is over.
If all pits on your side become empty, the opponent captures all of the remaining stones in his pits. These are placed in the opponent's kalaha and the game is over.
You win the game when you have 37 (or more) stones in your kalaha.
