COMMENTS

This is the number (assuming each character is unique) of strings that are possible in an n X n Boggle grid.

This sequence gives the number of directed paths. Paths may start and end on any vertex and may be of any length. Paths of length zero are counted here. - Andrew Howroyd, May 12 2017
