Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
