If you haven’t heard of Kan Jam, there’s a good chance that you’ve seen people playing it on the beach or at your local park. What may look like people tossing a frisbee into short black trash cans is in actuality one of the most popular outdoor games you can buy.

Rated as the No. 1 “outdoor party game in America” according to its product description on Amazon, Kan Jam is the ultimate game for frisbee lovers, and people of all ages can easily get in on the fun. Think of it like corn hole, frisbee golf and spike ball’s more portable cousin.

For two teams of two, the goal of the game is to get as many throws of the frisbee into their team’s respective Kan as quickly as they can and be the first team to get 21 points. Each team has one teammate on the opposing side of the playing field and when one teammate throws the frisbee, their other teammate can “redirect” it, aka hit it, into the Kan if the frisbee is going to miss it. And if the thrower can send the frisbee right into the little slot on the front of the Kan, it’s an instant win.

We love this game, not only for its simple yet competitive rules but for its portable design! Since both Kans can fold down and are made of plastic, all of the game’s elements are perfect for tossing into the car or setting up in the backyard in seconds (you can even get Kans decorated with collegiate designs for tailgates). And, you don’t have to worry about a soggy beanbag or flimsy board bringing you down, this game will hold its own through rain or the splash of the pool.

And with over 5,200 ratings, 4.5 stars out of 5 and an “Amazon’s Choice” badge, we aren’t the only fans of this game. Shop this backyard essential above and get ready to play Kan Jam all fall long.
