1. EVENTS THIS WEEK
FILM NIGHT The Conjuring 2, Monday 15th October, 18:00 – 21:00, Chadwick B05
Ghosts? Demons? Creepy Nuns? We start our trilogy of October Horror Movie film nights where we try to uncover the spookiest thing of them all – the end of the Piccadilly line.
Every Monday during term we watch a film as a society. The film we’re showing this week is James Wan’s masterpiece in Horror “The Conjuring 2”. You do not need to see the first one to understand this one.

BOARD GAMES, Wednesday 17th October, 18:00 – 21:00, Foster Court 215
Come along to our weekly boardgames sessions; from rookie to veteran, all levels of board game experience are welcome.
If you’d like to play a specific boardgame on the night, be sure to request it from Jo Winter!

PUB QUIZ, Thursday 18th October, 19:00 – 21:30, IOE W2.05
Think of yourself an expert in The Lord of the Rings? How about a savant at The Simpsons? An obsessive Potterhead who couldn’t sleep without the soothing voice of Jim Dale?
Whether you are an authority on Douglas Adams or if you can’t differentiate your Tony from your Robb Starks, give the UCL Sci-Fi and Fantasy Society Pub Quiz a try, where a variety of questions from the realms of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Nerd-Adjacent and even general knowledge will be asked.
Teams will be made at the event, you don’t need to know anybody to compete.
Not the most traditional pub quiz, we made it more Game Show-y and hopefully more fun.

BOOK CLUB, Friday 19th October, 18:00 – 20:00, Dillon’s Coffee (in Gower Street Waterstones)
This week’s reading is a short sci-fi story about religion: ‘The Way of Cross and Dragon’ by George R. R. Martin http://www.lightspeedmagazine.com/…/the-way-of-cross-and-d…/

2. UPCOMING EVENTS
FILM NIGHT Truth or Dare, Monday 22nd October, 18:00 – 21:00, Medical Sciences G46
Films based on video games? Horrible
Films based on board games? Even worse
Films based on party games? I guess it’s in the public domain.
Every Monday during term we watch a film as a society. The second in our three film Horror Movie trilogy (Thrillogy?) is so-bad-it’s-laughable film Truth of Dare? Based on the party game of the same name.
If you enjoy the game, you may enjoy the film?
