As an avid addict to the game "Hanging with Friends" online, I am well-acquainted with words with no vowels as that means my opponent won't get a clue at the start of the round.  Here is a list of words that the average person would know (although the list grows considerably longer when you add in the words that most people have never seen!).

CRYPT or CRYPTS

CYST or CYSTS

DRYLY

FLYBY

GLYPH or GLYPHS

GYM or GYMS

GYPSY

HYMN or HYMNS

LYMPH

LYNCH

LYNX

MYRRH

MYTH or MYTHS

NYMPH or NYMPHS

PYGMY

SHY or SHYLY

SYNCS

SYNTH

TRYST

WHY or WHYS and

WRYLY
