Do you play board games with your kids? How old are they? What games do you play? Do they ever try to cheat, if so how do you handle it? Are they sore losers, if so how do you handle it?

My dd is 10 and we play Guess Who, she doesn't cheat, and she's gotten better about losing.

 my dd is 4 and loves CandyLand, Chutes and Ladders, and Guess Who. She is really just learning how to play so she doesn't really understand the concept of cheating

 I do with the oldest two who are 7 and 6.  We play Monopoly Junior, Horse-opoly, Battleship, Chutes and Ladders and many more.  They haven't ever tried to intentionally cheat yet and if I see them doing something wrong we talk about how that is against the rules and they change it.  They are good losers and winners so far.

Yes
They are 5 and 3
The 3 yr old needs assistance on most of them.
5 yr old I cardio ally cheats and is a pretty sore loser.
We rarely let him win. He won't learn to think ahead if we give it to him.

We play
Chutes and ladders
Candy land
Funhouse
Dizzy dizzy dinosaur
Don't break the ice
Connect 4
Cooties

LOOVE Board Games. We plat Clue, Labyrinth, Fibber, Battleship, Apples to Apples and good 'ol checkers. We also like card games like 21 and Old maid. She used to be a stinker during the game but as she has grown has learned to be a better sport. If she couldn't play nice the game was over - one nice warning and then game over.
