Events of Martian Rails: The Terrans Cometh!

Martian Rails (2009), the board game by Mayfair Games about railroading on the Red Planet in which players build tracks and haul freight, has a long list of events that players can respond to in order to generate revenue for their rail companies. For example:

The Terrans Cometh! -- The hungry refugees from Earth need to be fed. Sam Parkhill, CEO of Sam’s Hotdogs, will pay for the first delivery of Bachelor Chow and Soylent Red to the corporate headquarters in Hinkston Creek.

Martian Rails is loaded with references to Martian SF!
