Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
