Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household.
Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award.
Two Peers take a joint Associate. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. FREE SPACE Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. King Odo says that someone "rocks".
The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Court is more than one hour late. 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 - We're more fun than a barrel full of seneschals!
