Well, prison seems like a good place for the assassin to be, so I'll take that :)
Sorry ipofanes I clearly wasn't thinking along the same lines as you this game! I struggled to find enough linking words for any of the clues.

ok, sorry about this.

With median I thought of watching a vertebrate from behind: HEAD, SPINE, TAIL. Non-cyclops vertebrate I had in mind, so PUPIL came as a surprise.

With farming, it was a tossup between ORANGE and OLIVE, thought orange farming is more usual in US. The other words were DRILL as in seed drill, SETTLE and STOCK as in livestock.

The ∞ indicated that in principle, all words have been targeted so someone thinking like an ipofanes would be able to get them all. Chrome was directed at PLATE (which worked) and LIMOUSINE.

The last one was a crap shot at ORANGE and DRILL which I thought were most in need of getting clues. But by and large a bad move.

Ah, ok. Spine worked. But mostly I was thinking about median as the statistical term: school PUPILs (students) being taught about mean, median and mode; also there's all this ranking with pupils being above/below average in their class (despite the government sometimes wanting all pupils to be above average :P). I wondered about TAIL there, as another statistical term, but not until it came up as a likely word for the farming clue too.

My clues: SNOW was cloud and Himalayas. GRASS was court, brush and pipe. MUSHROOM was pizza and Boom.

Guess it was convenient that OLIVE was taken care of by me.

Yes, me too. I am quite sobered up about my performance. Thanks all for the great rounds and apologies to my team mates.
