Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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 - We're more fun than a barrel full of seneschals!
