But we have to change the rules because Monopoly's so boring!
mbmbmbmbmb

I can't see anything related to it on the BGG site but then again, it is a nightmare to search as we all know, so sorry if its already on here somewhere.

Anyone who's a fan of the Shut up and Sit down team, will know Matt Lees as their sidekick and frequent contributor.

I stumbled across an article about Mat Lee's fiancée, in the UK's daily Mail.

Emma unfortunately has a very aggressive and potentially fatal cancer and her final hope is to have a treatment called immunotherapy.

It is unavailable on the NHS and like all of these things is invariably expensive.

The Daily Mail article is here

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3832677/Desperate-...

So here's a link for people to help Emma and show what a great community we are.

edit I had trouble getting gofundme to accept my payment as it wouldn't recognise my postcode. Anyway a kind person posted this paypal link below and I've now copied up here too.

Matt has also tweeted a PayPal link if that's preferable to GoFundMe.

When I think how much enjoyment the Shut up and Sit Down site has given me, it was a no-brainer to send a contribution for Emma. I hope that they have a wonderful wedding this weekend.

OP: Maybe it would be a good idea to change the title? There's nothing in the current title that suggests the gravity of the situation. It's so important that this get to the front page and get a lot of views.

Maybe something like, "Please help a young woman in danger for her life."

My initial post was more to see if someone could point me to an official post about this. Hence my vaguer title on my OP

I figured it must be on here already (surely someone from from Shut Up and Sit Down, would have posted something about it here on BGG) and it was just me not being able to find anything using the crap BGG search facility.

Anyway I've taken your advice and changed the title
