This is a Dutch variant of backgammon, first made popular in the 1500's and still popular even today, although not yet well known in America.
Try it and you will see that it goes faster and has more see-saw battles than backgammon. It also isn't as predictable as backgammon, which makes it even more addictive!
The iPhone app also comes with Facebook integration and a registration function that lets you compete against your friends and the world.

Very fun to play.
The game starts off nicely with a helpful tutorial that explains the game as you play. It feeds all the information to you as you need it. I have not been a big fan of backgammon, but the Dutch variant includes rules that speed up play considerably. The options allow for a fairly wide variety of flexibility within the basic backgammon rules. The AI is quite effective for one person mode and it is fun to play against my wife or kids in two-person mode. The graphics and controls are pleasant. The only downside I see is that I don't really see any major changes coming -- it is a board game that has been around for over 400 years.
Maybe additional AI, languages, skinning, etc.
Even with the future caveats, it is a great game and one I would heartily recommend.
Challenging and Addictive
New to the game itself I must commend the creator on an excellent tutorial. I quickly picked up the rules and find the game itself very addictive. The graphics are rich and full of depth compared to other games that I have seen along similar lines. I love the rich tones of the board and the pieces. Packed with features the Facebook integration works flawlessly. Using what I learned from the tutorial, and playing against the AI, I recently won my first game against a friend who was already familiar with the strategy and the game. The quality of the game, both in graphics and intelligence, well exceeds the price and I have to say this is one of my favorite purchases.
Very polished and very addictive
I have played backgammon before but I had never heard of TricTrac till a friend recommended this game to me. It is so fun! I've played like 20 games in 3 days with it and I'm still learning the strategies. The graphics are really attractive, and I like how I can use my own photos as the background of the board. The "tutorial mode" with the Post-It notes is really cool and makes it easy to learn how to play.
