    :D
    Download the latest PUN Free version and check out the Demos folder. There is a Rock, Paper, Scissors Demo inside.
    It's not yet "promoted", as we work on it but it's there.
    We also do a brand new, eight page tutorial, which is due out these weeks.

    Have fun!

    Unless you're in a room together, you can't message others. So to invite someone, you need some way to communicate between the users. That can be any external API or Photon Chat. For mobiles, I would pick some service that also does push notifications.

    FB can be used to authenticate users and you can use Photon's FindFriend to get the list of rooms your friends are in (if the friend-list is reasonably short).
