I found several examples on bbm like bbmregistration and bbminvitetodownload and those are clear to me on how to connect my application to BBM. But now i want to use BBM to play a multiplayer puzzle game having the app sent and receive question and answer message between BBM contacts. How can i accomplish this? I can not find any information or example for this.

This thread should answer your question.

OK that seems like a workarround that could work for my usecase, any idea on the timeframe we can expect some native api's on that? Trying to decide if i wait on an api or use the suggested workarround.

The peer to peer APIs are still being designed, so they are a ways out yet. I don't have an exact date to provide, but it will be a while after launch.

the aformentioned method should be capable of sharing anything you need, text, images, documets etc. From a gamers perspective anything other than a status update of "hey I just achieved this!" would be over-kill

True, that won't for for simultaneous play. Turn based games where you only do a turn or two a day may work. Some games used to do this kind of thing over email years ago.
