Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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.
