Events of Martian Rails: Mars needs women!

Martian Rails (2009), the crayon 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 events to which players can respond in order to generate revenue for their rail companies. For example:

Mars needs women! -- Almost all the Martian babies hatched are males. Additionally, since conditions on this frontier world are harsh, the human males vastly outnumber the females. Peaceful means are being attempted to lure human females to Mars.

Martian Rails is loaded with references to Martian SF!
