I got these terms, for n=1,..,33.
1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 10, 10,
10, 11, 11, 11, 12, 12, 12, 12, 13, 13, 13, 14
I've attached the packing for n=33 which so far is the most "dense"
one, in the sense that the ratio between number of unit squares and
total area is the smallest.
