I hold a girl in my hand.
She dances away.
"YES! I TOOK HER!! HA!!!"
The opponent brags to me.
But, he lost the war.
He, the monarch, gone.
Trapped by my clever soldiers
And my clever ways.

Playing Chess. Your opponent captured your queen, and he is bragging about it. But in reality, it was a queen sacrifice that led to you checkmating the king and winning the game.
Playing a game of Old Maid. In this card game, players take turns grabbing a card from the other player(s)' hand. If you make a pair from the card you take (as in having two 2's, two Jack's, etc.), both get removed. The trick is that there is one card without a match, the Queen, who is the Old Maid. The game ends when a player is stuck holding the Old Maid and all other cards are removed. That player loses.
Multicolored land, I hold a girl in my hand. She dances away.
You are in the tennis ground. You have the racket. And you swing it, hitting the ball toward your opponent.

Opponent hits it but he loses because he sends the ball out of the line.
He, the monarch, gone. Trapped by my clever solders And my clever ways.
Opponent is better than @you, so he is called monarch. And he lost because of your clever shot.
