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.

The quality of the pegs and jokers game was 5 star!
I ordered a set for 6 people. One set of pegs was black and one was dark blue. They are very similar and a little difficult to tell apart. Perhaps a different color combination should be considered. Overall the quality is great! I would recommend your product to anyone.
Pegs are easy to handle. Board with a variety of wood makes moving from side to side clearer.
Having an extra hole at the finish can be confusing.
The board is a "5" and the game is beautiful.

This joker board has great flexibility for traveling and the pegs are the best we have used. We have played on many different boards and like many things about it but would find it easier for new players if every 10 places were highlighted with a circle around the hole. Counting becomes cumbersome across the board with just plain holes. This a a great game for all ages 8 and above. Our families have spent up to 4 hours playing and enjoyed every minute. Thank you.
Nicest one I've ever seen. Would recommend to anyone interested in a great game set for family/friends.
Product exactly as advertised. Received sooner than expected. Excellent quality and beautifully finished. Great storage box too.
We love Pegs and Jokers. the older boards are large and hard to take camping. This collapsible wooden board requires less storage and less play area. The wooden pieces connect perfectly and the pegs fit the holes to perfection. The game wooden pieces are a real work of art. We love our game as do the people we play with. It is a beautiful and fun birthday gift for my husband. We play tournaments and the instructions that came with the game have helped clarify some points.
I recently bought an 8 player set for our own family and a 6 player set for a gift. Both were shipped quickly and arrived in great condition. The box that they were shipped in makes a good permanent storage container.

Now, I'm a "wood girl". I love the smell of it, the feel of it and the look of it. I also appreciate beautiful art. These games are pictured accurately on the website, but are even more beautiful in life :) The different wood tones are gorgeous; the finish and woodworking are perfect. I was surprised that the scale is somewhat smaller than the sets I've played with in the past, but actually prefer this size. It's more convenient for an average tabletop.
