Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
