Memorial Day weekend is upon us and many people will be playing Kan Jam. What began as garbage can frisbee in the 1990s has become a popular interactive game. Paul Swisher, a teacher at North Tonawanda High School, and his business partner came up with the concept for Kan Jam. The game requires two teams of two who take turns throwing and deflecting a frisbee into a can to earn points. An instant win slot made the game stand out and earn a patent in 1996. Swisher says it's finally catching on across the country. The developers sold 20,000 units last year and hope to hit the one million mark within a few years. They plan to take Kan Jam on the road this summer to big cities and to college towns this fall.
