Pleasant and quick. What keeps it from being a top-tier Knizia auction game is that while it has some tempo (in the form of its closed economy), there's no real sense of player asset differentiation--usually everyone is equally interested in winning the bid most of the time. I mean, a weak Knizia auction game is still great.
12.19.17 I don't need to own Orongo but happy to play. It's easy to learn and wrapped up in 45 minutes or so. It's got randomness/luck built in with the tile draw which goes to making a new game every time but there's not necessarily a way to get "good" at the game. Still, it plays so quickly that I don't mind. Plus the auctions and the route building make for a lot of interaction. The route building, in particular, can make for a very mean game. Which I like!
