Okay, so I forgot that this is an actual TV series and thought of it more as a drinking game in geological time (drink every time Napoleon becomes emperor! Every time a civilization crumbles! A species goes extinct! A religious leader announces the apocalypse!). Which would be kind of awesome if you were immortal and could survive long enough to get drunk.
