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.

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 Curly Maple paddles, 2 Cherry paddles, 2 Sapele (mahogany) paddles, and 2 paddles of another hardwood. The forth hardwood depends on availability and will most likely be ash, poplar, ambrosia maple, oak, birch, or ash. Or, check the Dark Wood option to get Sapele (mahogany) paddles only.

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


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 unique 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.


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.

We love it so much we are going to order one for ourselves.
We love the game my son in law keeps it in his car so he can always have it.
Quality work. Arrived quickly. I would recommend to anyone.
My family was home for the week of Thanksgiving. We enjoyed the game so much a few of them want to get the game. A lot of laughter and competition.
The quality of the pegs and jokers game was 5 star!
Quality of the product and intricacy of the pieces. It would be nice if this came in a nice wooden box. Even if it was a little more expensive. Maybe as an option. Thanks Don.
Fun and entertaining game that we really enjoy playing with our friends.
My friends and I absolutely love the beautiful wood, and especially the fact that there are three different types of wood as that makes things easier when you play partners. The only thing we don't like is the extra hole for the extra peg that is supposed to designate which color is associated with which paddle. We found the extra hole/peg in the way and very confusing. We tried just setting the peg in front of the paddle, but the extra hole was still just as confusing as having an extra peg in the hole. Then we tried putting the peg upside down over the hole but it kept falling off. I am going to have my husband plug the extra holes on my paddles. However, we do love having an extra peg with the set in case one gets lost. Other than that, love the game and love the hand made wood paddles. Thank you!
Amazing, personalized, rapid customer service
Very nice craftsmanship. Would have liked greater variety of wood color.
