I never bet on anything or play any games for money like cards etc. It is nice when I when, but I hate losing money and I get upset. So I choose not to play these games. How do you feel when you lose at something?

I like to play games like this when I can afford to. Even if I don't win I chalk it up to money spent on entertainment. I would much rather have fun hanging out with friends playing games than be stuck in front of the tv with all my money and be bored. I think that it is even fun to just play with change, it can add up if you win over several games. Even if you don't ever win you are not really losing that much per person anyway. Maybe you might enjoy playing this way.

Nope, I am not a sore loser. It's just a game meant for people to have fun and be fun. We used to have a game night in my house every Friday we would all get together and play games poker,rook,uno,skip-bo,runmmy,etc.. my favorite being the poker games. Everyone would be saving there change up all week to be able to play in it. It was fun and passed the time. I usually only has pennies because my hubby would keep the rest lucky for me I could win some extra change playing poker I loved it. But we no longer do that. The babies came and then noone really had the time or money even though it wasn't much to play. But me and my hubby and my brother in law would play even after the others quit. And they quit to after awhile to because They were the sore losers. If I beat them they got a little ticked my own hubby. How was I to know I would start with only 35 cents to end up with $11.45. No I don't cheat I couldn't cheat myself out of a paper bag just maybe god was looking out for me..But after winning like this for a few weekends straight they said nope no more. So it has ended I have tried to get it restarted but everyone has their own lives now days and things to do. I am going to start bringing it up again it's been a few years since we last pplayed and I really miss it and the closeness everyone had. So wish me luck..When I lose I just think maybe next time. I do have sore losers in my family my dad,brother,sisters,hubby,in-laws. It's just a game. Something that should be fun. Have you ever played with coupons? that is fun to play poker with coupons. and it is totally free to play just clip and play. Nobody loses out but you cna gain some great deals..

If I happen to lose something not out of my will or carelessness, I would be very upset. However, if I am into anything, I always want to win if I can. I am a sore loser especially where money is concerned. Like you, I do not gamble as I cannot take the pain of giving money away in a game which is played by chance.

I am not a sore loser, but i've already played games with a sore loser, and let me tell you, it ain't fun. This girl would get so mad that she was losing, she'd get in a fight with her boyfriend, and me and our other friend felt really awkward and wanted to leave, but then she'd be in a good mood again, until the next round! When she'd start losing again, and get pissed all over again!! And we were not playing for money!! Thank God!!

Well I don't bet or anything but when we play Games the only time I am a bad looser is if I know someone has cheated but if I loose fair and square I am fine with it lol

I play computer games at the public arcade at the mall. I play "fighting games / martial arts games", those types where you either compete against the computer or against a human opponent. i like to fight human opponents. and there are times that i lose, though not quite often. sometimes i feel bad but most of the times i just shrug it off - even when there's money involved. it's just a game, i always say. so whenever i lose, i always tell myself that the other guy just did what he's supposed to do and i didn't have much luck. there's always another day, and i'll win the next time. but i do meet sore losers once in a while and we end up - well, beating each other for real. ;)
