Game no Kanzume Vol.1 (ゲームのかんづめ VOL.1 lit. Game Can) is a compilation of Sega Meganet games, released exclusively in Japan for the Sega Mega-CD. It was released alongside a Vol.2 and was followed by Game no Kanzume Otokuyou. Both this game and the Vol. 2 make a pun of the name because they were sold in an unconventional boxs (normally, the Mega CD games came in a plastic CD case) where the discs are inside the "cans".

This compilation was partially translated by M.I.J.E.T. in that only the Phantasy Star II Text Adventures were translated.
