Players move their pegs around as they draw cards..
This game is a game of luck and simple strategy. It starts by linking the gameboard sections together and then each player selects their colored pegs. Then it's a race around the board as the players take turns moving their pegs clockwise around the board-pieces (paddles) by playing different playing cards. The first player or team to get their five (5) pegs from the starting point to their home area wins the game.
Even though your peg(s) might be almost all the way around the board, your opponent can still play a joker card and send you all the way back to your start section. Win the game by moving all five of your pegs to your home section first.
Complete game sets with bare unfinished wood are available for purchase. For those gameboard enthusiasts with an imaginative mind, we can provide you with a complete game set with paddles that have bare unfinished surfaces. The pegs are also ready for your final touch of color preferences.
The components needed are anywhere from 4 to 8 paddle boards, 20 to 45 pegs, and 1 to 4 deck of playing cards. Card holders are sold separately. It all depends on your preference for the number of players you want. The game can involve four, six or eight players playing in partnership roles. The cards are used to move pegs around the board as the players race to move their respective pegs around the connected sections of the board.

A little history..
The North American version of the Pegs and Jokers game evolved out of another game from centuries ago. Pachisi is known as the National Game of India, and involves four players that play as partners (two against two) on a board that is shaped like a cross. Each player races their pieces from the center, then around the board and back again. When a player lands on their opponents piece, it sends them back to the start.
It's incredible to think that a board game contrived so long ago can still be enjoyed today by anyone. It's so simple and lightweight, and can be carried anywhere.
