I have a fairly well fleshed out idea for a mockney gangsta game where the players are a bunch of crims doing one last job before legging it to Spain with their ill gotten loot. Its a massive homage to the britflik films of Danny Dyer, Ray Winstone, Guy Ritchie

but I'm struggling for a name...

so far I have:

On the Rob
One Last Job
Costa del Caper

not sure I've found the right one yet.

would love to hear if people would be interested in this theme too!

a few...

unfortunately One Last Job is already a heist game: http://www.onelastjobgame.com (I actually just playtested it on Tuesday!)

not a big fan of the other two (but I like the theme)

Here's a few random ones –

Ill-gotten Gains
The Big One (mild name clash with the wargame of the same name)
Vault Job
This Time it's Personal

The obvious choice is "Shut it, you slag!" I'll admit there might be some issues of tone if you want to appeal to a wide audience of 21st century humans.

Costa Del Caper seems a little unwieldy, maybe just the classic tabloid Costa Del Crime could work?

how about:

Magnum Opus means "masterpiece work of art," usually referring to the most important, best, or last (or a combination thereof) piece of art.

What about Magnum Scelus? "Master Crime"

Why not use cockney/London

Why not use cockney/London street slang?

Argy Bargy - heated confrontation
Dodgy Blokes - dishonest or dangerous guys
Lemon Lime - Cockney slang for crime
Pinch - to steal
The Nicks - "nick" is slang for theft, the group could be called "The Nicks."
Twockers - "Twock" is Liverpool slang for theft from the police acronym "taking without owner's consent."

Know no slang, but was scrolling through suggestions thinking back to your list of inspirations and thinking: "Whatever the name is, it needs sound even better with a Cockney accent--that is, better than things normally sound with that accent."

Hmmm...there needs to be a clock based crime game: "Tick twock!"
