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.

What role does the mug have in this game?

Reply from Don: The mug is in the photo just to show the relative size of the game. It has no other role.
In regards to comments on the 6th peg...i just got a permanent black marker and put 8 dots around it so it showcased it for a peg color marker. That way players would not move that peg. Great quality set! Love it!
Love this set! Super great quality! Should last a lifetime, and made in the USA!
Great game, fun and workmanship is perfect
The game was well made and will last a lifetime. I wish the home slots were painted in different colors. Overall, I would recommend this game to anyone.
I saw an issue by someone about the 6th peg. As Mr Strenz stated it was to go in the go in home row. Another option it allows is when you to start the game put a peg in the get out peg hole and make everyone get 6 pegs in. It allows everyone to have a first play for sure.
The additional peg also allows you to have a peg if one is lost. If lost fill the top home row peg hole with a match stick or something like that. This is one of the things that makes this set so unique. It allows a game play option or an insurance peg.
Thanks Don for your foresight and generosity
Excellent quality and beyond fair customer service.
I had a problem that was my fault and Mr Strenz exceeded my expectations on how he resolved the issue via a very friendly and caring phone conversation.
It was my good fortune to give Mr strenz my business.
This is the second Pegs and Jokers Board Game we have purchased from Don – the first one for ourselves and the second for our granddaughter's Christmas present. Both board games offer superb quality and workmanship. The one star short of excellent is for the one hole that needs a neutral peg. Why have this hole if it is not needed – or am I missing something? Additionally, a color for the hole 10 spaces from start going clockwise and a color for the hole 8 spaces from start going counterclockwise from start.
The additional hole is to hold the extra peg so that everyone will know your color even if all of your other pegs are in play.
Happy with game board and workmanship, but several of us that have bought from you wish that you didn't put in the extra hole
between the start and home places.
It has been so fun and used and so easy to take from home to home. Or to a function. Great product. The only thing is the pegs sometimes are too similar in color as black and dark blue etc but a great game.
