comment Tabletop Wargaming / Miniwargaming
I played the miniature wargame when I was a little boy,but I never know the formal name of it .We call it "玩具兵大战",and there was a game called"Army men"(verycd.com/topics/2825805/).Do you mean this?

you'd better look up in the idiom dictionary before asking questions here,and it can provide you very detailed explanations.

comment How common is the use of “瞧” and which region?
Be aware of one thing--maybe Beijing dialect is very similar to the mandarin,but it's much less formal than mandarin.

comment Recommendations for novels written in colloquial Chinese
I try to learn English by reading English novels before,but novel is different from the real world.In a novel you can't see many F-words(porn-novels are exceptions),but it's common in the films.So watching film is better than reading novel in learning Chinese.

comment How should one answer this question about 年?
When I studied English at school,I was taught a lot of conversations.A few years later,I suddenly know a fact that Americans don't communicate with each other like that.I read the Chinese textbooks which help the foreigners to study Chinese,I find that those examples in the textbooks are nearly useless.The example I gave above showed the ultimate Chinese wisdom---the golden mean of the Confucian school(中庸)。

comment Can 窝 be used for grouping any zodiac animal?
you can use "一窝" anytime you want with your intimate friends,but 一窝龙 and 一窝虎 are not as interesting as 一窝猪。Just don't use 一窝 in the formal occasions.
