    Hi!
    Is it possible to establish a connection between two Windows Phones by using Bluetooth and, e.g. for a multi-player game? Or do you have to use a server?

    Not until WP8. WP7 doesn't provide native access to the Bluetooth stack. But according to leaked SDK docs WP8 will.

    No way to do it over bluetooth, but it looks like you can do this over wifi using UDP multicast:

    One more question:
    Is it necessary to be in the same wifi network or is a p2p connection between to WP devices possible without the need of a router? Because in your link it says: "Phones running the game on the same WiFi network automatically discover one another and the players just appear on the screen."

    I don't think WP7 supports ad hoc networking. So unfortunately if you want to make things work without a network you'll have to wait for WP8 :(
