Trimarian Court Bingo

The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!"
The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows.
Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Court is more than one hour late. FREE SPACE Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance.
Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. King Odo says that someone "rocks". Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Somebody drops the Sword of State. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed.
The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands.

Instructions: Pay attention in court! If you see or hear something described in one of the boxes, mark off that box. If you mark off five boxes in a row (horizontally, vertically or diagonally -- true diagonal, not "sort of" diagonal), jump up and shout "Bingo!" (and pray that the Crown has a sense of humor).

The Quarter - Chaos, panic, disorder... our work here is done.
