Question

Not my own riddle, created by a friend of mine. :D

"When I'm heard I'm half the size

I am ten, and also five.

Ten to start, and a wee

Another rhymes - 4th of key

Chessman broken not a daughter

1/4 first and last 3/4

U R solving it really fast

Colored bodies will come last"

So, what am I?? ;)

If needed a hint later. :)

EDIT: Changed fist to first(typo)

I managed to find

And just can't get the rest of it, but I hope it helps to someone else!

:D

http://www.solarpons.com/Case_Broken.htm

broken chessman is some Pons guy, so pons broken on 'p' and 'ons' but it's not a daughter so instead of 'ons' it's a 'son'. The rest I just don't know how to fill in. But I'm sure I got the 'p' and 'son' right!

Great efforts Andro. :D I didn't mean outside help of this sort, I meant a particular person's name. But good deduction with 'son' but with this riddle it doesn't take you far. ;)

BTW, the line after the Chessman line is part of the Chessman puzzle. Get his name(Britain, helping out here as it's out-of-bounds of the riddle) and use the next line on his name. ;)

I'm afraid to ask but did you mean

Bobby Fischer?

If you did (he was American btw)

bob-byf-isc-her! It's not a daughter, so am I supposed to use 'her' or not?

Cause 'isc' is the 3-rd quarter and now are those the last 3 letters out of ten in my mystery word?

I'm working my brains of here and I'm just spinning in circles!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's not Bobby Fischer. :P

And I would suggest not going for a puzzle all out. For your relentless pursuit, I will give a hint very soon. BTW, He's not very well-known, if you didn't follow Chess very closely. ;)

EDIT: He was at one time counted among the top 10 players of England.

I'm giving up! How am I suppose to know that?! I don't even play chess!

And I don't think that any other hint may help because the hint that you have given me is essential for solving the riddle and I have no clue!

:(

There is one thing that I DO understand from all this

there is no way I'm solving this puzzle, not even if my life would depend on it!!!

And

the no daughter thing, but I hope someone will explain that to me after the solution is out in the open!

:mellow:

So I have one letter:

Chessman broken not a daughter

1/4 first and last 3/4

the Chessman is John Nunn.

1/4 of his first name and 3/4 of his last name is "n", so that's one of the five letters

Right? :D

You got that right CL. :P

One letter down. :D

Andro: I didn't really concentrate on the Daughter part, cuz that's not really important. But I will remember to ask my friend, why that's included. ;)

OK then, is one of these colors?!

I'm gonna take a vacation after someone solving this puzzle!!! :lol:

EDIT: Is it something with color :huh:

green

have to pick a particular color. These bodies are not exactly colored, but they derive their color. You have to spell out the name of the body and you will get it. ;)

Aww.. C'mon. My friend didn't make it so hard, but he sure thinks different. :P

You can tell your friend to take this riddle and shove it up his

meatus acusticus externus!!!

Just kidding! :lol: It's a great puzzle! :)

Fourth of key could it be the 4th key on a keyboard?

E,D or C
