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 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).


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.


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.

Just want you to know that I got exactly what I wanted, on time and at a very reasonable price.
Everyone loves this game who’ve been introduced to it! When people come to our house it’s the first thing they ask for!
We are very pleased with this set. The construction quality is very good. It was packaged well. We have shared this game with others, who have purchased it from this website also.
We LOVE this game. This set is wonderfully made and unlike any other game you could buy off the shelf.
the game is complete with all accessories needed to play. The quality of the workmanship is excellent. I recommend Don to anyone I know that needs a game. There is a sixth hole in the safe area that is not used by us but it is a very minor issue that doesn’t impede the game.
This is a very well made game and we have enjoyed it! My only critique would be that the 5th peg is unnecessary and sometimes confusing so we don't use it.
The workmanship was first rate, and we have received many hours of enjoyment from the game. Highly recommend this source.
The game is fun and exciting! The expandable design is unique. We take it along on vacations, weekend trips, and family and friends gatherings. A good friend who is a woodworker was going to make his own set after playing the game with us. After trying to figure out how to create his own set, he decided it was easier and less challenging to buy his own game from you. We appreciate the design, materials, and quality of your products. We, our familiy, and friends also enjoy 5 sets of your FastTrack game. Happy gaming!
Great game, adults and kids. Game lasts the right length of time.
The Don Strenz game is so well made, colorful with very nicely crafted wooden pieces!
Excellent quality & craftsmanship! Bought the 6 player game and bought additional pieces to make it 8 player. I like to play 2 tables of 4. Other people have bought sets that look cheap. This set has the 6th.hole to display your peg color. I used a black permanent marker to color around it so you remember it's for display only.
