    Hi, I'm playing with a work collegue (only the two of us) and sometimes I notice that we can press NEXT TURN a few times before we actually give the other player his turn. We seem to be playing at the same time quite often when we attack each other.

    Do you have the same problem?

    This is called simultaneous turns, and it is how multiplayer works in Civilization V. Everyone plays their turn the same time.

    You can play "Hotseat" where you alternate turns. However, there is no on-line hotseat option. You can play on the same computer, and then just rotate turns. I am not sure about playing hotseat on a LAN.

    Not a bug, a feature :p Though it is an often requested option to have sequential turns in online MP. Though many of us MP addicts would never use it :-/
