Events of Martian Rails: Sabotage in Space!

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:

Sabotage in Space! -- The greed of the corpor-nationals on Mars and Earth led to a quality of life plunge in the Martian towns. The situation results in a violent revolution. During these troubles, the space elevator is sabotaged. The falling cable destroys all track immediately north of the Equator. With the elevator gone, no commodities are available at Skyhook for the remainder of the game. Deliveries, to maintain the population and rebuild the elevator, continue.

Martian Rails is loaded with references to Martian SF!
