Trimarian Court Bingo

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