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.

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.
Easy ordering; prompt delivery. Beautifully well made and meant to last. Can be a family favorite as suitable for the whole family (age 7 or 8 plus), easy to play and flexible to how many players. Very happy!
Love the craftsmanship of the wood. Also the game is fun. I would love a wooden box to keep my game in. If you start selling that let me know. ❤️
Very good workmenship
Love the quality of the product. Beautiful craftsmanship and like the contrast of the wood pieces.
We LOVE our Pegs and Jokers game! We lovingly call it “The Board Game.” Don Strenz does beautiful work and we know it will last the test of time. Every other set we looked at was made out of particle board with a “pretty” veneer over it - the slightest moisture would surely destroy them. Not true with this set. Made of solid wood (4 varieties), this not only looks good, it’ll last and look good years down the road.
I'm very happy with my set. It's beautifully crafted. All my friends commented that it's the nicest Pegs & Jokers set they have ever seen! A friend of mine made a beautiful cherry and walnut box for it.
Beautiful wood; excellent craftmanship; Fun game!
Very well made product and prompt shipment.
