Games Night Tonight!

Tonight at 7pm is our first Social Night of the semester! Head over to our Discord (email us for the link!) to play some Jackbox, Among Us and other online board games!

It should be a lot of fun! Hopefully we’ll see you there!

Episodes Nights Sign-ups!

Thanks to all who attended FresherCon! It was great to see so many new people!

The time has come for our regularly scheduled programming – episodes nights and social nights! Episodes nights are every Thursday at 7pm (starting this Thursday 24th September) and social nights on Saturdays at 7pm (more info to come later for those).

The shows this semester, as a reminder, are: Dark, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Galavant and Gravity Falls. We watch a single episode of each show every Thursday evening, and these shows will stay the same the whole semester.

Don’t like one of the shows? No problem! We typically watch them in the same order every week, so just skip it and pop back in when the episode is over. If you also miss a week, that’s also fine, I’ll (if my 4th year schedule allows) probably post brief synopses each week with the episode number/title so you can catch up ready for next week.

If you would like to join us, just fill in this form: https://forms.gle/4gqEZ4HrhHz5HiU99 and we’ll send you the link to join us on Microsoft Teams.

Any questions just email us at sciffyedinburgh@gmail.com as usual and join us over at Facebook if you feel so inclined!

FresherCon 2020: This Time It’s Virtual!

It’s that time of year again folks! The time where we welcome new students to the university by holding a pub quiz and movie screening, but this time, we’re beaming ourselves straight to the comfort of your own home.

The Date: Saturday 19th September 2020

The Time: 8:00pm – 11:30pm

The Plan: We’ll be testing your sci-fi and fantasy knowledge through Zoom (prizes are on offer here!) and then watching Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse via Microsoft Teams. Complicated, I know. (But trust us, this is the best way we’ve found!) 

So come meet and hang out with some fellow nerds! We look forward to meeting you!

Sign ups are limited, so don’t miss out!

Fantastic Beast Screening

We have an exciting event planned with our friends PotterSoc and the Quidditch team – a late night screening of the new Fantastic Beasts film!

Tickets will be on sale in Teviot from 10am-4pm this Sunday (21st) for £6, and the actual event will be happening late 15 Nov/early morning 16th. Historically this is a well attended event so PotterSoc respectfully asks that only society members (of Pottersoc, Quidditch or Sciffy) buy tickets and note that they are only selling one ticket per person. If you desperately need a ticket but can’t make it on Sunday, contact PotterSoc through their email account or Facebook.

More details will follow about the pre-screening social, which is a great chance for us to get together and meet before the film!

Geeky Pub Quiz 12th March

On Sunday 12th March, Sciffy will be hosting a Geeky Pub Quiz! From 6:45pm-10pm in Teviot Dining Room!

Entry into the quiz is free, even if you’re not a Sciffy member so feel free to form a team with your non-Sciffy friends! Prizes (which are fabulous) will be based on teams of 5, but your team and be whatever size you want it to be – within reason!

Those of you with Facebook can take a look at our event page!

We’ll be voting on any changes to the constitution as well as voting in a new committee. You must be a member of the society to vote in the AGM, but if you’re not currently a member you can join at any point before the AGM starts.
