I have never heard it used in my life.How much is this word used (meaning 'steal')? Some dictionaries name it archaic and some don't.
That's where I came across this word ;-)Probably useful for that and Scrabble
Scrabble players tend to know obscure words like zax, which is not that much use to know outside the game unless you work with slate roofs, but which can be useful when playing. ;-)
