"Nicotine Girls....is bent, brilliant, perhaps a little offensive, possibly not for the sensitive, and the most human, innovative thing to come out of the gaming world in years. Oh yeah, and it'll fit on about a page or so if you print it out. the whole game. go read it. im not sure if i LIKE it, and im reasonably certain it'd be uncomfortable as hell to play it, but i love this game just the same.
Chris Campione, in his weblog.
"The moment when playing Nicotine Girls when the players figure out that the game is competetive, but have to stay in character as friends so they start holding each other back. It's just one of those moments that hits you hard and why I've only played it twice and with two seperate groups."
"...a game that's both playable and actually socially relevant....Nicotine Girls is an under-rated knockout."
