(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A137457 Consider a row of standard dice as a counter. This sequence enumerates the number of changes (one face rotated over an edge to an adjacent face) from n-1 to n. 0

COMMENTS

Most counters 'zero' out at '0' but the dice 'zero' out at '1' which is the initial state. So to increment 1 -> 2 requires 1 move, 2 -> 3 requires 1 move, 3 -> 4 requires 2 moves, 4 -> 5 requires 1 move, 5 -> 6 requires 1 move and 6 -> 0 requires 2 moves.

First occurrence of k (A026532): 1, 3, 6, 18, 36, 108, 216, 648, 1296, 3888, ....
