Trimarian Court Bingo

The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Two Peers take a joint Associate. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands.
The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. King Odo says that someone "rocks".
Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. FREE SPACE Somebody drops the Sword of State. Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back.
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. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s).
Court is more than one hour late. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance.

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 - It's not just for paper anymore!
