Trimarian Court Bingo

The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear.
The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). 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. The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. FREE SPACE Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't.
Two Peers take a joint Associate. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. Somebody drops the Sword of State. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands.
Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" 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).
