Trimarian Court Bingo

The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. 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. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown.
Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household.
The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. FREE SPACE Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name.
Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Two Peers take a joint Associate. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s).
Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Court is more than one hour late. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks.

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).



Drusilla sez: Stultorum quanto status sublimior, tanto manifestior turpitudo!
