how do I say... let's imagine a situation: I'm playing a board game with my niece and she wants to win a lot. so I'm kinda "cheating for her sake" and do wrong choises which lead me to failure, but my little girl wins. so I'm asking you to prompt me what word matches the expression in the quotemarks. thanks!

I guess the expression you're looking for is 'going easy on her' or 'letting her win' or 'playing in her favour' or 'playing to her advantage' or maybe there's a more specific expression that I don't know of. But mostly, one of these would do.

you could say "losing on purpose" or "letting her win"

You are 'making it easy' for her. There is no phrase in English for this, only that you are playing in a manner/way to make it easy for her to win or score more than you. You are cheating, but cheating is used for trying to win.
