Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
