After eating they played and laughed;
They took turns telling their adventures;
Each told what he had done,
Who had missed, and who had shot well;

Guingamor is hosted at a feast of grand extravagence by his faerie mistress: (line 527-530 trans Weingartner)

He had excellent food in great quantity,
With many ammusements, with great elegance;
There were the strains of harps and viols,
The songs of youths and maidens;
