On the character page, it says I have to "pass on 2 treasure rooms" in order to unlock Samson. If I enter the treasure room, but do not pick up the item, does that count as passing on it?

Yes it does, I've just unlocked Samson and I've entered every treasure room along the way, choosing not to pick up Cupid's Arrow and Telepathy for Dummies.

I'm unsure of whether you can, but what I would recommend just skipping basement (or cellar) treasure rooms altogether. Because you can still take boss items and shop items, and the bosses are usually not too tough (with the exception of widow, who I think is a PAIN IN THE BUTT.)

I know if you skip them completely it will work. I want to know if you can enter but not pick up the item. – user9983 May 29 '12 at 16:31
No you can not, as far as I'm aware. – idiot6663622 May 29 '12 at 16:33
