Here's a challenge: Name as many six letter words (english language only) without standard vowels (no A, E, I, O, U) as you can. There are 7 that I know of. Try not to use the dictionary. Name as many as you can of the top of your head. Average is usually 2 of 7, best that anyone's ever gotten is 5 of the 7. Proper names and foreign language words do not count.

Crypts, glycyl, tsktsk, are all legal words in Scrabble.

I'm inclined to say maybe to the second one, first one is fine, but the third one I'm not inclined to say is legal, as it lacks a definition of it's own, and usually appears as tsk tsk, not as one word. Exclamations are not legal in this particular challenge. Only missing one that I know of so far.
