Using Night Cards to Trigger Magic Lamp

Hello everyone: first time caller, long time listener.

I just played my second game of Nocturne: Midnight.  I trashed magic lamp with 6 cards in play: Secret Cave, Druid, Copper, Gold, Magic Lamp, Exorcist.

Iḿ guessing that this play was against the rules because I havenīt read any examples of Night cards being use to get 6 cards in play.  Iḿ not sure though because I had 6 cards in play.  (I bought nothing.)

Can you use Night cards to get 6 cards in plan to trash Magic Lamp?

Magic Lamp triggers when you play it.

No, you can not use Night only cards, like Exorcist, outside of the Night phase.

Magic Lamp gets played like any other Treasure; usually during your buy phase. And it doesnít do anything until you play it. With some various effects you could play it in your action phase or theoretically your night phase. But you canít just choose to play it normally during your night phase, and you canít just choose to play a night card during your action or buy phase.

As things stand, I think there are only two ways that a night card can be one of the six for Magic Lamp:

1) The card is a Night-Action or Night-Treasure and it got played during the non-Night phase it can be played in. (At present, Werewolf is the only such official card.)

2) The card is a Night-Duration that was played in the previous turn, and it's still in play when you play Magic Lamp.

Centuries later, archaeologists discover the remains of your ancient civilization.

Evidence of thriving towns, Pottery, roads, and a centralized government amaze the startled scientists.

Finally, they come upon a stone tablet, which contains but one mysterious phrase!

'ISOTROPIC WILL RETURN!'

There are also ways to play a Treasure during your Night phase. Have the Innovation Project, which you haven't yet used this turn. Play Vampire or Changeling to gain a Storyteller or Black Market or Fortune Hunter, which lets you play Magic Lamp.
