do yuo no some?
The French, Caro-Kann, Scandinavian, Owen's Defense, Alekhine Defense,
Queen's Gambit Declined, Slav, Semi-Slav, Dutch, Nimzo-Indian, Queen's Indian are all light-square-oriented defenses. Presumably there are some others.
There are also openings like the Pirc and Modern that are not necessarily played mainly on a particular color.
Yes, but are any of these actually played? ;-)
Um, most of them?
You're right, they're very obscure. But let's not forget the light-square-dominating 1...a6!!

Well, it could mean a lot of things ;)
