Adansonia gregorii, commonly known as the boab, is a tree in the family Malvaceae. Endemic to Australia, boab occurs in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and east into the Northern Territory. So why the heck isn't it a valid word for some reason now? According to https://wordfinder.yourdictionary.com/scrabble-dictionary it is acceptable for Scrabble.

I first tried hallux (big toe) for the body part but it wasn't accepted. Also Macadamia has four 'A's, not three so maybe the clue should say "Has three or more A's", just like the 12th clue says 'Five or more letters"

Nov 11, 2019
Even though that was my first guess I didn't expect it to work because bonsai is not an actual tree, it is a tree or shrub that has been artificially dwarfed by a process. It's a thin line, but again, I was surprised to see it accepted. My next guess was going to be baobab.

What about "dobro" for the five-letter instrument? Technically, it's a brand name, but musicians use it as a generic term for a very particular kind of guitar that is regarded and played differently than a normal electric or acoustic. It's usually set across your lap, and you pluck it like a banjo while using a slide to control the notes. The average guitar player cannot play dobro. In a band, you'd say "Jim plays drums. Kerry plays guitar. Amy plays dobro." Not sure what the requirements of this quiz are, but as a seasoned musician, I'd say "dobro" definitely qualifies.

Wow, Im one of the 2,8% that got them all and english isnt even my language!

wasted quite a bit of time on the tree. I read started and ends with b so tried baobab, which it didnt accept, retyped it 4 times then changed the spelling eventhough I was pretty sure I typed it correctly. Then reread the question and saw it only had to begin with a b so gave an easier answer (beech or birch) was surprised to see baobab actually show up in the list! I guess I did spell it wrong initially. And with alternate spelling spelled it wrong again? But thinking I did the opposite of what I did initially, so thought if the first time wasnt right this way should.. (oa-ao) . Could have had more than a minute left otherwise, now 40 sec
