I don't play my best game with children unless they take too long, then I will try to win just to end the ordeal.

OMG, this topic heading!!

My dad used to beat me in boardgames, and it was really-really sad to me. Now I'm trying not to do that until they notice that I succumb to them.

I try to help, but if that doesn't work - yeah. My last time playing a game with a kid was with one of my cousin's 10-year old. We were playing a card game and he kept complaining about his hand. I explained that it wasn't his hand, but how he was playing it. We even swapped hands a few times, and I would win and explain how I used his cards to my advantage. His take? Swap hands with me when he got bad cards, even though he was losing either way.
