Saturday Special – Killer ACAN Square

The two anti-chess variants anti-knight and anti-camel cannot both exist on a sudoku grid with the standard 3×3 nonets, so I’ve removed the nonets!

 In chess, a knight moves 2 cells horizontally and 1 cell vertically or vise versa.  Since this puzzle is anti-knight, none of the red X’s below can contain a 5 because the center cell is 5.

In fairy chess, a camel moves 3 cells horizontally and 1 cell vertically or vise versa.  Since this puzzle is anti-camel, none of the brown X’s below can contain a 5 because the center cell is 5.

 This puzzle comes in two versions.  Here is the INSANE version:

    the solution page shows “5” where the comments at the top of the web page indicate “5” cannot be, so I guess I really do not understand how to play this anti-knight and anti-camel game……

    The 5’s that are X’ed out in the example image are in relation to the 5 at the center of that image. Besides attempting to explain the anti-chess variants involved, that image has no relation to the actual puzzle.
