Cities of Martian Rails: Labyrinth
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 in sleek trains with names like Spirit, Tweel and Viking, has a long list of interesting cities that players can capitalize on to generate revenue for their rail companies. For example:
Labyrinth – A small settlement within the Noctis Labyrinthus (southwest section). The area was originally named in Antoniadi’s map of Mars about 1930.
