Pahhh. Avoiding earning the 'hoarder' label is easy:

"You are a treasure room filled with countless precious
artifacts of vintage significance.  You see a an Apple I board,
a running Cray I, and the original UNIVAC operating all around
you.  You may move East, West, and South."

"Oh no!  You have run out of space in your hoarder cache.  You
must make additional room"

> Move North

"You have discovered a SECRET PASSAGEWAY.  In the room before you
lies the 'cache of everlasting warehouse space'.

> Take cache

"Congratulations.  Your space to warez ratio is now under hoarder
threshold forever-more."

> Move South

"You are back in the treasure room."

> Take all

"You've won the game!  The End!"
