Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
