How to run Nicotine Girls

If Dungeons and Dragons is the Jerry Bruckheimer version of roleplaying games, Nicotine Girls is the indie movie version, co-directed by Todd Haynes and Christine Jeffs.

Nicotine Girls is a game written by Paul Czege, and it's about teenage girls with minimum-wage jobs who are looking for happiness. Keeping with the film analogy, the archetypal game of Nicotine Girls would be like Ghost World. The most extreme version I can think of would be Winter's Bone. You can find the rules here: http://www.halfmeme.com/nicotinegirls.html (they're like 1.5 pages long)

A couple of months ago I wrote some play advice for this game, which you can find here:
