Trimarian Court Bingo

Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. 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..." "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names.
Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..."
Court is more than one hour late. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" FREE SPACE Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony.
Two Peers take a joint Associate. Somebody drops the Sword of State. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands.
Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear. The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose.

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).

The Quarter - Welcome to the Kingdom, Baby!
