KanJam: The Joys I’ve Had Even in Defeat

Kan JamMy wife Beth recently went to Toy Fair 2016 in NYC for one of her clients who flies drones. Now, I’ll admit that’s a lot more fun than my car dealership clients who don’t let me test drive or borrow new cars for free.

But, with every trade show she goes to… I always ask her to snag me some business cards. She disappointed greatly when she went to Las Vegas for CES, but Toy Fair did not! In fact, she got 2 business cards that intrigued me for a favorite game of mine: KanJam!

I honestly thought it was Kan Jam, but it’s a unique (not a board) game that’s a fairly simple concept. Here’s an informative video showing the game (and apparently some other versions I’ve never played but will have to!).

Like with many things in my life, I have lost more at KanJam than I’ve won. I’ve always played with my nephews, my brother and brother-in-law, along with some other people. I’m always the one who winds up falling on his ass trying to dive after the disc to either jam it or at the very least hit it into the can.

I have a long wing span and am very flexible (and durable) because of my wrestling endeavors, so I always try to jam even if there’s little chance of getting points. My disc throwing abilities are as subpar as my ability to jam, hence why I taste the agony of defeat more often than not. But still, the game is about fun and I have lots of fun playing it.

I’d love to hear about your experiences playing KanJam, so feel free to comment!

P.S. Beth told me that KanJam was at Toy Fair 2016 to show off some new ways to customize your cans with sports team logos, which I couldn’t care less about.
