Trimarian Court Bingo

The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. Two Peers take a joint Associate.
Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. Court is more than one hour late. Somebody drops the Sword of State.
The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear. FREE SPACE Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. King Odo says that someone "rocks".
Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!"
Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award.

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).
