Trimarian Court Bingo

Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks.
The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Court is more than one hour late.
Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Two Peers take a joint Associate. FREE SPACE Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test.
Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. 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. Somebody drops the Sword of State. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear.
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..." The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..."

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 kid because we love.
