Cities of Martian Rails: Barsoom

Martian Rails (2009), the traditional board game manufactured 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 capitalize on to generate revenue for their rail companies. For example:

Barsoom -- A small settlement in the north central section. Edgar Rice Burroughs determined that it was the name for Mars in the Martian language.

Martian Rails is loaded with references to Martian SF!
