The old name, still frequently used, for the unit of currency in the game of Mornington Crescent. The term comes from the days when French was the language of choice among the nobility: the general populace used the English term of "token" - which is largely, but not exclusively, preferred these days (outside of gambling halls, which refer exclusively to "podumes": just as with card games, roulette and other gambling games, French terminology is still preferred in most gambling halls.)

For those finding themselves in some confusion over the number of available podumes and their characteristics, Blob has provided this handy [table] for quick reference.
