Trimarian Court Bingo

Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. Two Peers take a joint Associate. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows.
The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear.
King Odo says that someone "rocks". Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear. FREE SPACE Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb.
Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. Somebody drops the Sword of State. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..."
Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Court is more than one hour late.

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).
