OK, there's a pretty big flaw with this as given: the ordering is
unclear.  The points awarded will be different depending on whether the
tally is incremented before or after they're awarded.  I'm voting nay on
it and proposing the following replacement:

Exploration bonus II [baf]
1. Every room on the map will have a tally associated with it, called
"visits".  This tally will initially be 0 for every room, and is
considered part of the state of the game.
2. At the end of every turn, each room's visits tally will be incremented
by 1 for every player whose location was changed to that room during that
3. Whenever a player's location changes, that player will receive a number
of brownie points equal to the new location's visits subtracted from the
largest visits tally of any room on the map.
