Residents of Nottingham eat the most Chinese and those yeomen of Kent love traditional British fayre more than anyone else.

In this variant to fancying someone and asking them out, the desperate and lonely get to play an adult version of the childhood murder game, when the lights would go out and you’d attack anyone in your path.

This game comes with wine, cheese and a main course that looking through the waiter’s night-vision goggles could be a fillet of succulent beef or a furled napkin.

The key ingredient is wit and charm. Since it’s dark, your voice, presence and smell are all the object of your desire will have to identity you.
