Okay, not really, but pretty close.
J.F. Crook at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina has come up with a fool-proof way to solve Sudoku puzzles.
The numeric brain-teasers are a favorite time-sink around the world, but Crook told "USA Today," quote, "it is a trivial puzzle to solve."
He spills his Sudoku secrets at the American Mathematical Society's website (click here).
Just one hint: be prepared to use two different colored pencils.
