A few suggestions:

Under Court Ball, note that Lord Mortimer was the High Minister and was also killed creating a vacant office.

In each Player's section, perhaps also note the Loyalty Counter and Opportunity Counter drawn.

Under Sir Jeffrey's #4, the Counsel was not accepted: the next turn is not automatically a Court Ball.

Under Knight Simon's #1, the rolled 5 was against Earl Francis's duel rating of 2.

Under Knight Simon's #2, IP was repeated for both: it should be 5 PP & 3 IP.
