I started with Civ5 late, just recently after it became available for Linux. One thing bothering me is that when you get some diplomacy event on the ai turn like "join us in war against xx" you have to decide on the spot, but cannot see the map or any other info. I would like to check things out like where the cities of xx are placed, how strong they seem to be etc. before making a decision like this. Is there any way to do that?
