A woman of low standing in terms of physical attractiveness.

They are often the fodder for young intoxicated men also of marginal physical attractiveness, men of a high level of physical attractiveness who have either entered a state of desperation or incapacitation, or fallen wingmen.

Much like operations in mathematics, the classification of a nickel is also bound by the laws that govern their existence; this law is know as Ethan's law, discovered by a strip club owner by the same name. Ethan's law states that a nickel must possess at least two of the following characteristics: a large waist, oblong/distorted face, facial hair, double chin of the arm, or pepperoni nipples.

Although the term nickel is not the surname of this wily beast, it does provide the most succinct definition.
Ethan: Dude, I totally hooked up with this dime piece last night.

Hawke: You mean that mammoth of a women you were talking to last night, she had hair in places I didn't know a woman could have hair.

Ethan: Noooooooooooooooooooooo.

Hawke: Actually, I have a picture. (Shows Ehtan the picture)

Ethan: (Simultaneous crying and vomiting)

4.
A bar game played by men, for 2 players or more. One player takes a nickel and then flips it. Other players guess "heads" or "tails." The player who flips reveals the coin by lifting his hand with 5 fingers outstretched, representing the symbol of the game "Nickels." Players that guess correctly are eliminated, and if more than 2 players guess correctly, the nickel is given to the next player to flip. This continues until there is one player left, the loser, whose penalty is to hit on any nickel (~5 rating) at the bar. A new round is played only when the losing player has completed his assignment.

Although many have critiqued the game as derogatory or misogynistic, the spirit of the game is to simply talk to as many women as possible and to make it fun. Accordingly, it is permitted to hit on women higher and lower than a 5 rating, though it is preferable that they be as close as possible to a "nickel."
