A proposal for three new rules.

  robotfindskitten [Psmith]

  The game shall contain a robot and a kitten, each of which have a
  location on the map. The initial location of the robot shall be
  Embedded CPU, and of the kitten the Lounge.

  The active player may, during his or her turn, take at most two of the
  following actions (either two different or the same action twice):
  * Move the robot.
  * Cause the kitten to move to a room randomly selected from the list
    of rooms connected to the kitten's location.
  * Cause the robot to examine an entity randomly selected from the list
    of entities whose locations are equal to the robot's location.

  If the robot examines a non-kitten entity, the player causing it to do
  so loses one brownie point. If robotfindskitten, the player causing it
  to do so gains 10 brownie points, and the robot's location is set to
  Embedded CPU and the kitten's location to the Lounge.
