This game was played solely as a Play-by-Mail (PBM) game, where participants took turns by postal mail and, later, received their turn results. Some PBM games had no published components; others offered a published player's manual or introductory setting guide, etc. Salient details may be noted here in the description - especially for games with no published component.
Night of the Things was a Play-by-Mail Pop Culture Horror game offered by Madhouse. Players characters were derived from "American B-Grade Horror Flicks" and play was intentionally campy and outrageous.
