Is there a way to save a multi-player game so that we can return to it later? I can't find an option. It was possible in Civ 4.
Update: Saving in multiplayer is now simply an item on the menu, accessible by pressing escape. (I can't recall off the top of my head if only the host can save, or if any player can save.)

Now to see if I can find some links to support my answer...
EDIT: The Civilization 5 manual claims the that HOST can save, and if the host disconnects someone else is nominated host. Having never hosted, I can't confirm if this is possible. I believe every player can still autosave as usual.

I'm sure this functionality will be included in a patch in the near future.
Alternatively, you can just rely on the actual autosaves which are created for every player.
yea, it autosaves every turn for you. Go to host game and then click the load button you'll see your last game's autosaves.
This is by default. you do not need to change any settings.
