When the weather is nice, it is great to enjoy a fun outdoor game with friends. You know you have stumbled upon a good outdoor game when you can play for hours on end. One game that combines the fun of flying discs and horseshoes is Kan Jam.
Kan Jam comes with one game disc and two plastic cylinder cans. Four player will play on teams of two. One player will fling the game disc in the direction of the can while the other team member tries to deflect the game disc in the can.
You score points if the disc lands in the can. There is an open slot in the front of the can that if the game disc lands in it, your team instantly wins the game. The perfect game of Kan Jam consists of a team scoring 21 points in seven throws. You get three points when the disc lands in the can. If the deflector(person not throwing the disc) hits the can with the disc, then that is one point, and you can score two points if the person throwing the disc hits the can.
There is supposed to be 50 feet between goals(cans) but this can be less depending on the amount of space you have to play. While there are instructions on how to play Kan Jam, the main goal of the game is to have fun. This is why you can move the goals closer together.
Kan Jam can be played at the park, in the backyard, tailgating, or just about anywhere. It makes for a fun outdoor game when you are having a get-together with friends. Kan Jam is a good game for those who like to throw discs and even those who aren't that good at it. Just get the disc in the general direction and let your partner do the rest.
Outdoor games are fun and are usually light on the rules. Kan Jam offers a lot of entertainment with a disc and two cans. Plus Kan Jam could help to burn a few calories, too. Now there is a reason to try an outdoor game.
