Trimarian Court Bingo

Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Court is more than one hour late. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names.
The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!"
Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear. King Odo says that someone "rocks". FREE SPACE Somebody drops the Sword of State. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown.
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..." The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. Two Peers take a joint Associate. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't.
Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. 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). 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).

The Quarter - Zesty!
