Hardwood Game Paddles

Each hardwood game paddle is 12 inches long, 3/4" thick, and is hand finished with a durable urethane varnish. Most of the woods used are harvested here in Upstate New York from replenished forests.

The 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 Sapele (mahogany) paddles only.

The paddles loosely interlock with round mortise and tenon joints (see the photos). You can connect the paddles to make a 4 or 6 player game. If you are looking for our 8 player game, click here.


You get 6 pegs for each game paddle: A total of 36 painted wooden pegs of six different colors. Possible colors are Green, Yellow, Blue, Black, White, Cool Gray, Pink and Red.

Although only 30 pegs are needed to play a 6-player game (5 pegs per player), our unique design adds a stationary peg to each paddle. This allows each player to choose both a hardwood paddle and a peg color. Players can easily see each color's home position even when all of a player's pegs are in play.


The individual game paddles connect with round mortise and tenon joints which allows a variety of layout possibilities to fit your table. The photos below show some of the layouts and their total size.
* A 4 player game consumes 12 inches square.
* A 6 player game consumes 20 inches square.

Love, love this game we play it with another couple once a month. Have bought it for our boys when we are all together it's the one game we all want to play. The best part is that we can take it with us,it's been everywhere. The workmen ship is the wonderful.
Highest quality materials and workmanship, all my friends have expressed admiration for my game set. I am 100% satisfied and happy with this purchase.
Love the set, it is a wonderful game to play with family, and kids really love playing it.

Regarding the 6th peg, the hole should be marked permanently so it wouldn't be confused with the playing pegs.
Excellent, quality workmanship! Great service and a great price.
Beautifully crafted! My only concern with the game is that you might want to eliminate the one hole between the starting & stopping location it can be & has been confusing. Also, perhaps a painted marking every 10 holes for ease in counting : ) We have been enjoying your Pegs & Jokers routinely : )
We really love this Pegs and Jokers game so much we play often with our many friends here at Nettles Island. One suggestion would be to place same colored marbles on top of each set of pegs. The reason being easy to see at a distance on the wood peg board. We glued some on our pegs and wow how easy to see where your peg is on the board
I’ve played on other boards and I have to say this one is of exceptional quality. After I purchased mine three of my friends ordered boards for themselves and we spend many hours having fun playing pegs and jokers!!!
This is such a beautiful game set. We have enjoyed many hours of playing with friends. The wood is just lovely and Don does a magnificent job finishing the pieces. You won't be disappointed!
Excellent craftsmanship and durable.
Love this game and Don does a beautiful job of creating a quality product that will last for generations!
