Umm...

Front - Face and Die - Crash aren't really synonyms, are they?

Face/Front are actually synonyms in two completely different senses
"face" is the "front" of something, like a clock or a head; also, they both refer to a pretence. http://thesaurus.com/browse/front
For Die/Crash, they are near synonyms (as the instructions say they can be), they can both refer to a broken computer.

I'm glad there are similar ones lately, as I figure them out pretty well! Did need a hint on #4, but the whole thing felt juuuuusssst right!
