  2. Instant Win = Finish your Drink
  3. A Slam Dunk = 1 Big Drink
  4. Direct Hit = 1 Drink
  5. Spill your drink = Take a Drink
  6. Put down your drink = Take a Drink
  7. Forgetting to drink = Take another drink

This game is fun on its own and adds a challenging twist as the game progresses. See who can keep up. You can choose at the beginning of the game if each person on the team takes a drink or if each partner on a team takes a turn drinking.

If you notice your competitors’ drink is relatively low the honorable thing is not to be a jerk and nicely point out that they have been sipping on their drink. At this point you are able to use a variety of names, ask them if there was any milk in it “because they are sure milking it” for far too long or they are a cheating lying scum bag. After this politely ask them or your partner to hold the game so they can at least finish their drink and get a new one. Please take into consideration if they are drinking doubles or triples.

How to Play Drinking Kan Jam: 

For this Kan Jam drinking game, you will need 4 players, 2 people on each team.

First, you must set up the Kan Jam set up as the official rules outline. Set up your 2 Kan Jam goal “bins” approx 15 feet apart from each other.

One person from each team stands on either end of the KanJam court. One person is the Deflector, one person is the thrower in each round.  After each round, the roles reverse. The deflector must always remember that while playing the Deflector they are only allowed to use one hand. On the other hand, you MUST have a beer or alcoholic beverage! Each player must remain behind the goal when throwing. If they pass the goal line and score points, no points will be awarded.

Kan Jam Drinking Game Rules

The scoring works the same, you win when you accumulate 21 points or you score an instant win. In the KanJam drinking rules, the losers must also slam the rest of their drink upon their competitor’s win. The KanJam scoring details are:

1. No points if the Frisbee hits the ground.

2. No points if the deflector double hits, catches, or uses 2 hands

3. If the opponent’s team interferes with the Frisbee, 3 points are awarded to the throwing team.

4. You must reach 21 points exactly to win.  If your points raise your score above 21, the points are instead deducted from your score and you keep playing till you achieve exactly 21.

5. Each team must complete an equal amount of rounds.  If a team reaches 21, the opposite team still has a chance of redemption throw to do the same.

6. In the event of a tie, the game continues to an overtime round. Each team completes one throw and the team with the most points wins.

How to Score Points with Kan Jam Drinking Rules

The points-scoring system is the same as the traditional game of Kan Jam.

1 Point = If the Frisbee hits any part of the goal redirected by the Deflector.   In KanJam drinking rules, the other team takes a drink.

2 Points = If the thrower hits any part of the goal directly.  In KanJam drinking rules, the other team takes a drink.

3 Points = Deflector redirects the disc and lands it inside the goal.  In Kan jam drinking rules, the other team takes a BIG drink.

Instant Win = Direct entry into the slot on the front of the goal.  This must be unassisted by a partner, if it is assisted it’s 3 points.   If an Instant Win occurs, the other team must slam their drinks. In KanJam drinking rules, the losing team chugs the rest of their drink!


We hope that our version of Kan Jam drinking rules provides you with lots of entertainment, and hopefully not too much of a hangover.
