In hot seat mode, all players play on a single computer. A hot seat game cannot be combined with a network game.
The game is set up in the same way, except that everything is done on the same computer.
In contrast to network games, which are real-time, hot seat games are turn-based, i.e. players act one after the other and not simultaneously. They end their turns by pressing the forward button.
Some things are managed differently in hot seat mode. For instance, elections and auctions take place turn by turn.
