super garruda
 n.— «So, you may be asking, what’s an example of a really good, equally obscure and difficult question? Well, how about this one, the “super garruda” (a made-up word meaning final and most difficult question) from the 2003 contest.» —“Strange questions, devoted players, passionate trivia masters keep LU contest thriving” by Cheryl Sherry Appleton Post-Crescent (Wisconsin) Jan. 25, 2007.
