Mars art: A locomotive named Tweel

Martian Rails, the new board game made by Mayfair Games about railroading on the Red Planet in which players build tracks and haul freight, has a locomotive named Tweel. Deriving its name from the goofy but influential creature in Stanley G. Weinbaum’s landmark SF short story “A Martian Odyssey” (1934), Tweel is a Level 1 loco, with a slow speed of 2, and can only travel up to 10 mileposts per player turn.
