Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

Fill a 2-dimensional board made from square cells with numbers using the following rules:

- start from 0;

- if the number just written is new then the next number is 0;

- if the number just written was present on the board before, the next number is the distance from its closest occurrence, counting cells you need to pass through to reach it

a(n) = 1 for all n >= 17 because the previous 1 will always be adjacent to another 1. The version of this sequence using the Moore neighborhood (vertex adjacency) consists of 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2, 2, and then an infinite number of 1's. - Charlie Neder, Jun 11 2019
