Week 12: Christmas with SciFI

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Ah eventually the long anticipated day is nearly upon us.

We’ve waited all year for this, and now Star Wars is nearly here!!
SciFi are going to see it in Screen Cinema this Friday at 7:30, and have a few tickets left for our outing. So contact a committee member or post on the event if you’re interested!

In the spirit (or Force-Ghost) of Star Wars we will be teaming up with Animation and showing the Family Guy Star Wars trilogy this Tuesday in the Eliz room from 7!
Packed with all the toilet humour you expect from Family Guy, this Trilogy is filled with more gags than you can shake a limp, flaccid lightsaber at! (Trailer)

Wednesday we will not be hosting our usual movie screening in the Eliz room…instead we have decided to bring you a Christmas Guitar Hero competition! (See we do do things Christmas related! Granted the songs won’t be Christmassy but still) So break out that hideous Weasley Jumper you wear for the 12 pubs, stuff your pockets with mince pies and come down to Chaplins at 7!

As per usual from 1-2 on Friday will be our Quiet Reading hour.
This Friday also sees the return of Amiibo Mafia! From 2 onwards come down to the bunker and watch as we pit ‘AI’s against each other for our entertainment in our own nerdy neo-gladiatorial virtual Colosseum. So pick your favourite Amiibo, hedge your bets and win fabulous prizes! (Prizes may or may not be fabulous)

Finally to finish off the Semester we will be doing our annual screening of the most Christmassy of Christmas movie…..Die Hard. At 6 in the bunker we will be settling down to watch our favourite cowboy/cop yippy ki-yay his way to saving his wife from terrorists on Christmas Eve. Did somebody mention baked goods…? Yes that’s right this isn’t just Die Hard…this is PIE Hard. Committee members will be providing (hopefully) delicious baked goods for your consumption during the movie!

Yippy Ki-Yay everyone,
Merry Christmas from SciFi!

Week 11

Merry Christmas to all!

As we slowly progress 7 advent calendar chocolates closer to Christmas SciFi has decided to enter more into the Christmas spirit than Anime and racing games….instead we will be focusing on cartoons and other video games!

So for this week on Wednesday 9th we are entering into the charitable feel of the season and teaming up with VDP to bring you your chance to help charity and become a Pokemon master like 10 year old you always dreamed of! Hunt Real-Life Pokemon (may be people in costumes) across campus, earning gym badges as you go (ticks on your capture sheet) and find those hidden legendary Pokemon that just made it all worthwhile! Just €5 for teams of 4, sign up in the Hamilton on Wednesday before 12, with an entire afternoon to hunt Pokemon for fabulous prizes!


Who wouldn’t want this fabulous certificate?

Following that we will be showing one of the most feel inducing movies of the last year in the Eliz Room at 7 with Inside Out.

If this movies doesn’t affect you you have no heart.

Friday as per usual we will have out Quiet Reading Hour from 12-1.
Following this will be a Blindfolded Games Afternoon from 3! If you think you’re good enough at Mario Maker, Chivalry Medieval Warfare or Hyrule Warriors that you can play with a blindfold on then by all means come on down and try your hand in our bunker, or if you just want to try for the Craic!

Finally we will be wrapping up the week slightly more festively with Home Alone 2 in the bunker at 6!

Also our glorious dictator Michael will be entering the Charity White Collar boxing tournament for Rag Week, and is looking for your help!

Game of Thrones Quiz Night

Whether you’re a fan of the books or the TV series, you should definitely join us for our Game of Thrones Quiz Night tomorrow evening at Kennedy’s. We’ve written the questions so they can (perhaps) be answered by fans of the show or of the texts.

If you’re not that much of a GoT buff, there will also be prizes for funniest answers (just no more John Cena memes, plz… actually maybe one or two).
