It's a family-friendly card game version of RA, which is out of print here for a while now. In my family one of the most often played Knizas still after all these years. I think, the gangster theme goes even better with the game's mechanisms than the pharaoh stuff in RA. I haven't seen the game for a while, as I played only an early beta, so I am curious, how good the computer player is now. You can still find my portrait as one of the AI mugshots though ;-)

Off-topic for a sec, I see that you are waiting for Quarriors and Onirim. We now know that Quarriors is coming out next week globally, but do you know when Onirim is supposed to come out?

I think, I read about February on Boardgamegeek somewhere. It will be the second app of the team that brought us Pandemic. If Onirim will be on the same high quality level, then we have got here something to look forward to. But maybe, with the unexpectedly upcoming Pandemic expansion, perhaps it is now a bit lower on their to-do list, who knows.

Great board game implementation. Just a caveat though, that this is essentially a re-skin of Ra. If you have that game, this is basically the same game with a different theme. That being said, I actually like this theme quite a bit for this game, and I think the UI and gameplay is better with this game than with Ra.

That makes it quite a bit less interesting actually. What is there to the game that I could not already have with Ra?
