Enigma at UCLA

The Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Gaming Club at UCLA

Enigma includes everyone from undergrads to graduate students and alumni, encompassing every department from both South Campus and North Campus. If you're interested in science fiction or fantasy (whether books, art, or film), or gaming (video games, card games, board games, roleplaying games, etc.), even just a bit, you're always welcome with us.

All Enigma meetings on UCLA's campus are open to the public and are free of charge. There is no formal membership, so drop by any time! Students, staff, faculty, and local community members are all welcome.

    • We need GMs! The event can't run without GM's of course, and GMing is a ton of fun! We've got plenty of experience GM's within Enigma if you're interested but not sure where to start. If that's the case, contact our President Mason and he'll set you up with some resources/pointers. Either way, if you're interested in GMing you should contact our Administrative Coordinator Anastasia
