Cities of Martian Rails: Barrakesh

Martian Rails (2009), the recent 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 interesting cities that players can utilize to generate revenue for their rail companies. For example:

Barrakesh -- A small, low canal-side settlement in the southeast section. All sorts of crime, sins, and evil can be found here. Earthmen aren’t welcome.

Martian Rails is loaded with references to Mars and Martian SF!
