Capture a Group of 7 Stones

[Animation of 7 stone capture] It takes 12 white stones to capture this black group.

Notice that white's very last move is the point in the center of the black group. This is important, because white is not allowed to play on that point until white stones are covering all the other lines that touch the black group. This is one of the two rules of Go.

For an explanation of this rule, read about the illegal move in Go.
