Commodities of Martian Rails: Radio-Meds
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:
Radio-Meds – Created by harvesting and concentrating the naturally radioactive compounds found on Mars for medical tracers (nuclear medicine) and gene therapy medications.
Martian Rails is loaded with references to Martian SF!
