Over the holidays my Mom hosted our traditional family game night. It’s a bit of a competition with various games setup throughout the house for everyone to play and keep score. One of the games she pulled out was “Aces & Faces” using a board she made many years ago.
Well you might guess my first thought on seeing this old board!? Yep, I have a Glowforge and this board needs to be updated!
When I got home I researched the game a bit and found its common name is really “Pegs & Jokers” with many homemade examples shown online. Taking some ideas I saw I went about designing my own board from scratch and then forged it up using PG Think Plywood.
I used some PG Thin Acrylic I had on hand for the game pieces. Will likely update these at some point. The board can be easily reconfigured for more players (up to 6).
It’s a fun party game. There are many sites with varying rules, here is one I just pulled up…
If you’d like to make your own board (please share a photo if you do) here is the design (minus the art)…

Next up, need to think about a box to hold everything!
Finally, game night would not be complete without a trophy!
