Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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.
