When I was playing this game last week, we came across to a haunt that the Heros need to put something in a room, where the number of that thing equals to the number of surviving heros, in order to win the game.
And the trailor's winning condition is to kill all people.

So that makes the trialor impossible to win as if the heros could put one that something in the room
As eventually that would be only one hero surviving if the trailor is trying to them all.....

Is it a bug or just that there are some hidden rules or what?

I have never come across a haunt that specified the number of surviving heroes. It's always been numbers of heroes, or number of players.

Can you rember which haunt it was?

I think that when you're saying "number of surviving heroes", you mean "number of heroes at the start of the haunt". That way, the situation you describe doesn't happen (since there will always be at least 2 heroes left).

DC Clark is correct... if there are 3 Survivors at the beginning of the haunt then you must get 3 [items] into the room.

If the traitor kills 2 Survivors after that the last remaining Survivor still has to get 3 items.

Actually I what I played is the Chinese version, and the Haunt is haunt 17...
but then in the English version, haunt 17 is not what I've played.....
super weird.....

It is about an evil twister or storm that type of thing...but I really can't find the corresponding haunt in the English version.

Anyway, according to the Chinese version, it is "number of surviving heroes"but not "number of heroes at the start of the haunt"........but that will make much more sense if it is the number of heros when the haunt started...

Is the Chinese version based on the first or second version of the English rules?

Some of tha haunts was taken out of version 2, and replaced with new haunts.

The English text reads "When you have placed a number of tokens equal to the number of heroes when the haunt was revealed..." It sounds as if there was a mistranslation.
