The main focus of the Kan Jam game is for the players of the playing teams to score more points than their opponents.

Can’t go wrong with a classic! Cornhole is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing bean bags at a raised board with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores three points, while one on the board scores one point. Play continues until a team or player reaches or exceeds the score of 21 by means of cancellation scoring.

Giant Jenga

My guess is you’ve probably played a game of Jenga at some point in your life, but have you ever played GIANT Jenga? Giant Jenga follows the same rules you’ve grown up playing; the only difference is the overall height of the blocks. Starting at about two feet high at setup, Giant Jenga can stack over five feet in play. 


The Jenga game requires physical and mental skill. Players take turns to remove a block from the tower and balance it on top, creating a taller and increasingly unstable structure as the game progresses. Be careful when the tower of blocks finally falls!
