Things... that deserve a cease and desist order

Terrible Things is a party-style board game that recently finished a successful Kickstarter campaign. Yesterday Quinn & Sherry, the publishers of Things..., sent a cease and desist order to the makers of Terrible Things demanding that the game's title be changed.

His as-of-the-moment Top 20 Best, Prettiest and Funniest. YMMV (I'm counting on it).
