How would I say 'I am playing bad' in German? (When referring to a game of something)

How would I say 'I am playing bad'? I know it can't be 'Ich spiele schlecht' because that makes no sense because it's calling yourself bad or something.

Would it be 'Ich mache ein schlechte spiel?

    "Ich spiele schlecht" ist richtig. (= I play bad.) "Ich bin schlecht" means I am bad. I think this is nearly the same than in English.

    Ich spiele schlecht = Ich mache ein schlechtes Spiel.


    Hi kjqx1H16,

    zoobe is right. We just say 'Ich spiele schlecht. Ich spiele gut.'
