    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.

    You're right, they're very obscure.  But let's not forget the light-square-dominating 1...a6!!

    Does ";)" mean nothing to you?
