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.

Week Seven Meeting: Civilization Building

This week we'll be building Civilizations!

You will all be split into relatively small groups and given descriptions of planets. In multiple phases, you will use your creativity (and that of your groupmates) to figure out...

Phase 1: What kind of life arises on this planet?
Phase 2: Of the life which arises on this planet, which species achieves intelligence?
Phase 3: How does the civilization, culture, technology, etc. of this intelligent species develop over time?
Phase 4: How does the species achieve interstellar travel, and what do they use this technology for?
Phase 5: Your species meet each other, and the Galactic Congress is founded! Y
ou will
get to interact with other groups and alien races as the interplanetary equivalent of the United Nations is established.
