You achieve an instant win if you are able to throw it directly through the front slot of the bin. This is not a game for kids, but a fun Frisbee game for adults ages 12+.
We have 2 other blogs just dedicated to this game, both the Classic Rules and the Backyard Game Unofficial Drinking rules. The game is sold individually or in a combo game set, but definitely the official KanJam version will have you tossing for years to come.
The game is like the original Tic Tac Toe game with X’s and O’s. Except you need to throw with Frisbees where you want your piece to land in the game. It is an easy DIY game that you can create and setup in a matter of minutes. All you need is a tarp, a roll of duct tape, and approximately 12 frisbees you can buy from a dollar store.
The goal of the game is to get 3 in a row horizontal, vertical, or diagonal. First player or team to do so wins! Get the full DIY instructions and rules to play Frisbee Tic Tac Toss as well as a Drinking Game Rules.
This DIY game can even use a target ball you probably already have in the house, like a tennis ball. This can be played as individuals, or as teams, and take over the field. The game rules are easy but you can get the full Bocce Toss Rules here.
4. Frisbee Tennis Tossing Game
Just like volleyball one team serves (tosses) the frisbee over the net and tries to score points on the other team. If the receiving drops the disc, or takes more then 3 passes to get it over the net the other team gets the points.
If you do not have a tennis court it can be played in a field with cones to mark off the area. The reason the tennis court works so good is because the net in the middle makes sure you do not throw it hard at the other players feet. We mark of a “dead zone” about 2 meters on each side of the net and is counted for out of bounds. The rules are quite simple, just do not throw the frisbee out of bounds and do not drop it.
5. Frisbee Golf Game (FROLF)
Just like in golf some players come with multiple Frisbee to play with. A driver for long shots and a putter for the short range. If you do not have a course, you can play this with other objects and create your own course with whatever you have. Make sure to include lots of obstacles with trees, branches, ponds, and playground equipment if possible.
6. 500 Up Frisbee Game
The rules are simple, one person is the tosser and everyone else is the catcher. The tosser gets to decide how many points will be awarded for each toss. The tosser yells out the number of points as they throw the frisbee. If the catchers catch the frisbee in the air, they get the points that were called. If the catchers drop it, they will be deducted the amount of points. Once the frisbee hits the ground, it is considered dead and no points are awarded. First player to reach 500 points wins, and will be the tosser next round. This game is supposed to be no contact, but does have some jumping in close quarters as everyone anticipates where the frisbee will land.
7. Sir Catch A Lot
Before beginning, decide how long you want to stand apart, and see how many passes are possible. A few variations include double points for throwing with your forehand, not moving your feet, or catching on your finger. First team to 20 points wins! This is a great game for schools and large groups of kids.
The objective of the game is to knock off a cup from on top of your neighbors stand. You can do so by hitting their bottle direct or knocking the pole by throwing the frisbee. When you knock the bottle off the other teams stand, they can then try to catch the bottle or frisbee to regain the points. This is another game that has further instructions you can learn here for how to play Beersbee game rules.
9. Frisbee Baseball Game
The batter gets to throw the frisbee. Make sure that it does is not land out of bounds, and no bunts. The frisbee must travel at least 5 meter. However, unlike baseball we do not give 3 fouls. This means that if it lands out of bounds, is caught, or does not travel at least 5 meters your out. Some backyard games allow the basemen to hit the thrower with the disk, counting them out. However, in our experiences this lead to some painful hits so we would recommend against it.
10. Frisbee Bowling
11. Frisbee Soccer
Ideally you will want to play with 8+ players (4+ per team) with actual goal posts. Throw the frisbee down the field in between players without getting intercepted to score a goal. If you do not have a goal post, then a make a simple goal with cones, coats, or anything you can find.
12. Ultimate Frisbee
It combines the best aspects of USA football and soccer into a fun Frisbee game. It’s a widely known game, and recognized by the International Olympic Committe and has tournaments. It is played best with 10 players (5 on 5) on a large open field. Essentially you are trying to make it to the other team’s goal by throwing the Frisbee to your team mates. Once you catch the frisbee, you are not allowed to move from that spot. This has you anticipating where you team mates will be and throwing the frisbee to them.
13. Pool Jumping Frisbee Game
14. Stack them Up
Mini frisbees work best, or pick up 10, 20, or 30 flying discs from your dollar store. This sounds easy, but the higher you stack them the more challenging it gets. Arguably even more challenging than Jenga!
