    First time I hear about Czech checkers. It has a nice ring to it. I hope you're feeling ok, you can write to me if you feel like sharing. :)

    Czech checkers (Dáma - Queen in translation). You begin with 8 or 12 pieces and the ones who reach the last row will be promoted to Queen. A Queen can move any number of squares she wants in any direction, even while jumping behind a piece. Jumping is compulsory and in accordance with the etiquette she precedes over pieces in terms of right (and duty) to jump.

    Is it related to how we are figuratively all pawns and in order to get somewhere in life we have to somehow walks over people's head?

    It sounds like Greek checkers. We also call it Dama (or Damès meaning Queens). It's fun. And yeah it surely represents something social, like the queen squashing the little guy. And then she gets her head cut off, but that is another game.....
