Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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 - Forsooth. Forsooth.
