We make our Pegs and Jokers games of solid hardwoods native to Upstate New York State. No stains, dyes, or other chemicals are used to alter the natural color of the wood. Our Pegs & Jokers sets arrive in a white re-usable cardboard box.
Pegs and Jokers is also known as Marbles And Jokers, Jokers and Pegs, the Social Security Game, and Jokers and Marbles. The game is similar to Parcheesi and Sorry, which were derived from the ancient Indian game of Pachisi.
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. Pegs and Jokers is particularly popular with RVers. It is portable and stores neatly in a box.

Our game paddls are 12 inches long, 3 inches high, and 3/4 inches thick. The individual paddles connect with loose round mortise and tenons and are finished with a durable urethane varnish.
Our pegs are painted hardwood and come in a velvet drawstring storage pouch. A standard golf tee will also fit in the peg holes. We also offer replacement sets of pegs
We include an extra peg of each color and an extra hole is in each paddle. The purpose of the hole is to hold a stationary peg to let all the other players know where your home is when all of your other pegs are on the board. It also lets each player choose a hardwood and an easily identifiable color.
Our Pegs & Jokers games are available in 6 or 8 player versions. Our paddles will connect 4 to 6 player with our 6-player game and 4 to 8 players with our 8-player game.
All of our Pegs & Jokers games come with full instructions how to play the game, and describes several alternative variations of the game. All you need is a few decks of cards.
