In Marbles and Jokers, players race their marbles around the track by drawing cards. The first player to get their five marbles home wins the game. You can also play with teams. Marbles and Jokers is particularly popular with RVers. It is portable and stores neatly in its box.

The game is also known as Pegs And Jokers, Jokers and Pegs, the Social Security Game, and Jokers and Marbles. The game is similar to Parcheesi and Sorry, which were derived from the ancient Indian game of Pachisi.

Our Pegs and Jokers and Marbles and Jokers games are played the same. The difference is that Marbles and Jokers paddles are 2 inches longer to accomodate the marbles. And, obviously, our Pegs and Jokers are played with pegs rather than marbles.

For ages 7 and up. 2 to 8 players.

Ace Either bring one peg out of start to come-out or move one peg forward 1 hole
2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Move one peg forward 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 holes

Hardwood Game Paddles

Each hardwood game paddle is 14 inches long and is finished with a durable urethane finish. Most woods are harvested here in Upstate New York from replenished forests.

Your 6 game paddles are made from three different hardwoods. 2 Cherry paddles, 2 Sapele (Mahogany) paddles, and 2 Oak paddles. Or, check the Dark Wood option to get all dark Sapele (mahogany) paddles.

The paddles interlock with loose round mortise and tenon joints (see the photos).


You get 6 marbles for each game paddle: A total of 36 marbles of 6 different colors. Although only 30 marbles are needed to play a 6-player game (5 marbles per player), our unique design adds one stationary marble to the top of each paddle to indicate each player's color. This unique design allows each player or team to choose both a hardwood paddle and a marble color. Players can easily see each color's home position even if all of a player's marbles are in play.

This is the best investment I've ever made in a game. I purchased your 8 player version last May and bought a six player version for my Mom, who is 89, in December. My "house rules" are very close to the Arizona Rules which everyone has adopted, including some that were playing by other rules. My wife and I play against each other, each playing two colors and have played 46 games not including multiple player games with others. Three others have purchased the game from you as well. Another bought from a different manufacturer and wishes he had bought your version. The quality and workmanship and flexibility is exceptional. As a former woodworker I appreciate your product. Thanks again Don, I hope to be sending more business your way. Oh, BTW, I lead my wife 30 - 16 in wins - take care.
The game I purchased from your company was exquisite. The wood and craftsmanship was of the highest quality. It looked better than the pictures, better than promised. I’d looked for a long time at various possibilities for this particular game. I was looking for a full-sized game with which we could travel, could easily put away, and that was American made. Your particular Marbles and Jokers Game was just right. My husband — who is also a perfectionist — loved it. Thank you for keeping your standards high.
We love this game and Don’s workmanship is beautiful! Everyone that plays this game with us has bought one! So much fun!
Great enjoy the game & it was made with good quality, thanks.
Extraordinary workmanship! The wooden pieces are so beautiful. Great game for all ages. Makes wonderful gifts for families and adults
We bought this 6 person game for our son-in-law for his birthday! We thought it to be a perfect gift because he loved playing ours. We have your 8 player version and it is our favorite thing to do with friends. We have had so much fun with the game and so many friends have purchased it also. My husband is a woodworker also and has created a keep sake box for the game. All friends that have purchased the game from you have received a box. We appreciate your beautiful craftsmanship. I’m sending a couple pictures of our box. Thank you for the fun.
We ordered this for our grandchildren for Christmas. We were very impressed with the product in quality and craftsmanship. Beautiful!!
