Martian Rails commodities: Airweed

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 long list of cool commodities that players can transport to generate revenue for their rail companies. For example:

Airweed – A native plant of Mars that converts oxygen from the soil and thin atmosphere. The plant then stores the oxygen in pods. The plant was discovered near the Equator but is being introduced to areas away from the Equator.

Do you like board games? Martian Rails is loaded with references to Martian science fiction!
