Enigma at UCLA

The Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Gaming Club at UCLA

The guys and gals in Enigma run the gamut from undergrads to graduate students and alumni, from the very heart of South Campus, to the statue-infested wilds of North Campus. If you're interested in Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror (through books, art, or film) or if you're interested in Gaming (video games, card games, board games, etc.) - even just a tad, you'll find a home with us.

All Enigma meetings in Ackerman Union and Kerckhoff Hall are open to the public and are free of charge. Students, staff, faculty, and local community members are welcome.

Either way, if you're interested in GMing you should contact our Administrative Coordinator Anastasia
