Marble, Diamonds, Oil, and ... Mercury?

I know it's used in a lot of things, but it doesn't quite scream "representative resource" to me.

As a brazilian i'd say I expected Cristo Redentor, and not a futball stadium.

That is definitely a weird one. I wonder if they mean iron or maybe metal?

Ninguém mais aguenta os flamenguistas.

No one can stand the fans of Flamengo anymore.

The "official wonder" of the city is the statue of Cristo Redentor.

Yah. That's definitely mercury, and yes, that's a very odd choice.

Googling Mercury:

Roman Mythology: the Roman god of eloquence, skill, trading, and thieving, herald and messenger of the gods, who was identified with Hermes.[from Latin Mercurius, from merx, merc- ‘merchandise’.]

Perhaps some of the traits you need to play the game well are personified by the Roman god. Plus the Latin root suggests 'generic goods'.

Liquid mercury as one of the four core resources of the game.

Perhaps you can poison your enemies with it... or take their temperature.

I'll say it again. Odd.

I'm guessing they were going with mercury's perceived importance in early alchemy.

Mercury for a Science resource? Temperature, vacuum etc..

Maracana inspires you to wonder about it's inclusion
