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.

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.
We were introduced to this board game by former RV'ers. We enjoyed it so much that I was planning to make the paddles myself as were done by our friends. But after seeing Don's on line, I order them from him. Glad I did as our other friends plan to do so also. Don's paddles are just beautifully and professionally hand made and attractive. Thanks Don, you do excellent work.
Beautifully crafted
This game was expertly made. The quality is exceptional. We play at LEAST once a week and have gotten family and friends hooked on it. We take it with us to CA when we visit our kids and grandkids and my daughter is planning on buying one too.
A friend introduced us to Pegs & Jokers and we've been playing it ever since!
We just purchased our new set and brought it to Singapore. Great game for all ages. Our friends liked it so much they bought the game. I love playing teams! Thanks Don great job on the wood working and the a nice box to store everything inside. Cheers, Mary Anne
The board is an excellent way to accommodate extra players or remove the unneeded sides and play with the correct number of players each time. Very clever idea. We enjoy it very much.
It's a fun, friends and family game. The craftsmanship of the board is outstanding.
