Commodities of Martian Rails: Pulcho
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 cool commodities that players can transport to generate revenue for their rail companies. For example:
Pulcho – This is a mildly intoxicating coffee-like beverage. It is pink, slightly bitter and acidic. Humans may take a while to get used to the taste but most then consume it regularly.
