```I got Bob's code running!
Here it is for all nineteen rooms:

import random
class Room:
roomNo = 0
def __init__(self, destinations, updatable=True):
Room.roomNo += 1
self.roomNo = Room.roomNo
self.destinations = destinations
# store treasure apaart from destinations
self.treasure = 0 # add intial treasure
self.updatable = updatable # may have the treasure updated
def updateTreasure(self, treasure):
self.treasure = treasure
def __repr__(self):
return " %s:%s" % (self.roomNo, self.treasure)

# Table of Rooms
rooms = [

Room([9,0,0,16,0,0,0])]   #19 Small Room

# note I omitted the initial treasure value since it is always 0
# use random.sample to create random subsets of values and rooms
# - eliminates all the loops and tests
# note this ensures no duplicate treasures (do you want that?)

# create list of 8 random treasure values
values = random.sample(range(10,110),4) + random.sample(range(-4, 0),4)
print " values:",values

# create list of 8 randomly selected updatable rooms
roomsToUpdate = random.sample([room for room in rooms if room.updatable], 8)
print "8 rooms:",roomsToUpdate

# update the rooms' Treasures
for room, value in zip(roomsToUpdate, values):
room.updateTreasure(value)

a = range(1,99)
for room in (3,15):
rooms[room].updateTreasure(100 + random.choice(a))

for room in rooms:
print room

"You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its
orders and decrees. An evil system never deserves such
allegiance.  Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil.
A good person will resist an evil system with his or her
whole soul." [Mahatma Gandhi]
