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.

This is a beautiful set! We rarely play with 8 players. Instead it’s easy to make two tables of four each out of this set.
Purchased 2 sets. Beautiful workmanship and quality.
You won’t be disappointed if you purchase this product.
Played this game with our neighbours. We liked it so much we ordered 2 for 2 homes, our
Other 2 neighbours ordered a game each through your website
Great fun game! The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is the boards should be bigger/longer. Therefore, it would not be a strain/stretch on the arms for all ages
LOVE this game. When we get to playing, we do so for hours on end. Prefer 4 or 6 player but for the money, if you get an 8-player, you can use it as two 4-player boards. We have game weekends with family and this is a staple...so fun!
I bought this wonderful game to take for our Christmas Family Game… we played for hours… everyone loved it so much, that we ACTUALLY did play for hours!!!...we’d stop to eat… and get right back to it… anyone can play and, it also gave us an opportunity to visit as we played and recount what everyone had done over the past year! HAS BECOME OUR #1 FAVORITE FAMILY GAME…

… I live in a gated community and when I take it to the club… again, everyone joins in and, again, we play for hours…

It is made with extremely professional care… no rough edges or bleeps like so many games these days… THIS GAME WILL LAST WITH OUR KIDS PASSING TO THEIR KIDS… LASTING BEAUTIFULLY!

The craftsmanship for the Pegs and Jokers game was most EXCELLENT! I highly recommend this game, especially from this artisan. You can maybe get cheaper somewhere else, but this is a keepsake game for years and years of fun! Best game, best wood working artist!
Wonderful game and top craftsmanship in the creation of the pieces. Love it all!!!
The beautiful quality and workmanship of the 8 Player Hardwood Pegs and Jokers Game is a rare find today. We’ve taken our game on vacation with our children and grandchildren, and have enjoyed many fun and spirited rounds playing it. I highly recommend Don’s hand crafted game. The game itself is great for both family and adults to play and he is a true artist.
Beauiful work, a joy to play on.
