Trimarian Court Bingo

Two Peers take a joint Associate. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. Court is more than one hour late. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..."
The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!"
King Odo says that someone "rocks". Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. FREE SPACE Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks.
Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Somebody drops the Sword of State. The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household.
Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award.

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!
