In Pegs and Jokers, players race their pegs around the track by drawing cards. The first player to get their five pegs home wins the game. You can also play with teams.

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

Pegs and Jokers is particularly popular with RVers. It is portable and stores neatly in its box.

For ages 7 and up. 4 to 8 players.

♦ 48 wooden pegs of eight vivid colors.
♦ 4 decks of cards.

Hardwood Game Paddles

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

You get 8 game paddles made from four different hardwoods. 2 Maple paddles, 2 Cherry paddles, 2 Sapele (mahogany) paddles, and 2 Oak paddles. Or, check the Dark Wood option if you want to get Sapele (mahogany) paddles only.

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

Pegs

You get 6 pegs for each game paddle: A total of 48 painted wooden pegs of six different colors. Colors are Green, Yellow, Blue, Black, White, Cool Gray, Pink and Red.

Although 40 pegs are needed to play an 8-player game (5 pegs per player), our unique design adds a stationary peg to the top of each paddle. This design allows each player or team to choose both a hardwood paddle and a peg color. Players can easily see each color's home position even if all of a player's pegs are in play.

Size

Each paddle is 12 inches long and about 3" high. They are 3/4" thick solid hardwood. The game paddles can be connected to allow you to arrange them in a hexagon or rectangle to fit most any table.
* A 4 player game consumes 12 inches square.
* A 6 player game consumes 20 inches square.
* An 8 player game consumes 27 inches square.

Love the set and the game! Ordering a second one for our lake lot. Excellent craftsmenship!!
High quality product. We love the game.
The workmanship of the gameboard is beautiful. Unfortunately we neglected to pay attention to the size of the board segments when ordering and they’re actually shorter than we were expecting. Friends have a board with segments two inches longer each and it makes for a much better size board, especially if we’re playing with 6 or more players.
The only recommendations I would have are to mark the come out spot, the place to put your peg telling others what color you have and the spot in front of where you go in to home.
With our mature friends they can sometimes get confused on what peg to use and where the come out and in front of the home spots are.
The craftsmanship is superb and it comes with several different sets of instructions depending on where you live. Really enjoy my purchase. Thank you.
I loved it so much I had my brothers-in-law buy a set also!
Quality workmanship
This item is beautifully crafted and made from quality materials. I would recommend this item to any of my friends who wish to purchase a pegs and jokers game.
Warning: if you have more than one very competitive player, this game can get testy. But that has nothing to do with the game construction or its beauty. Seriously, if you are looking for a beautiful game board then you will not go wrong with a Pegs and Jokers game from Don Strenz
Just want you to know that I got exactly what I wanted, on time and at a very reasonable price.
