DELAFIELD, Wis. - Jan. 5, 2020 - PRLog -- DELU is a brand new and exciting indoor or outdoor tailgate type game. It is a combination of games like cornhole, washers, skeeball, golf, and fun. Players alternate tossing a ball overhand. The ball must bounce on the ground once and only once and they score points based on where the ball lands. The game is played to 20, with rules if players bust or tie. If they make it in the top hole, it is an automatic win with an asterisk. The ball is removed and the other player has a chance to tie it up.
DELU was created out of boredom the summer before JT Nejedlo started school at UW-Madison. He wanted a new game to play, something that was different from the other tailgate games already out there. He had a lot of fun playing the game and brought it to his freshman year dorm for others to play and try out. After spending hours playing DELU in the hallway and having a lot of fun, Nejedlo realized he was onto something.
He started using DELU in some of his business classes for their projects. Not only did the game satisfy requirements, it helped him understand his business more and develop it further. Nejedlo participated in a business accelerator program, which is when he started to make real progress. Nejedlo found a manufacturer in Milwaukee, WI and has worked closely with them to get the game to the market.
DELU has been for sale for about a month now. Nejedlo has enjoyed the experience of launching the new game. He didn't know exactly what to expect from the launch, but he has been happy with sales so far. Now he faces the challenge of getting the game out to more people.
So far the reactions have been positive towards DELU. It has a couple of 5 star reviews on their website and many positive comments from people who have played it. Those who have played DELU love the fact that it can be played inside or outside. They also find the game slightly challenging, but very addicting. Overall the game has received a lot of praise. Nejedlo hopes he can continue to make sales and get his new game in front of more people. He knows it will be a challenge to one day get DELU into stores, but he hopes that one day he can get it there.
