Events of Martian Rails: Blue Mars!

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:

Blue Mars! -- Canal improvements. As money and political ambitions allow, the government rebuilds some of the ancient Martian canals that have fallen into disrepair. Once repaired, these canals are treated as blue canals for the remainder of the game.

Martian Rails is loaded with references to Martian SF!
