Openings that leads to open games?

I have a rating of 1800 at ICC. But I don┤t know very much opening theory. I like open games. So I would like to learn openings, where a lot of pawns are exchanged, that leads to open games. Any recommendations?

Open games

I just wonder what is a good definition for "open games" ? Exchange pawns is ok, but after how many moves ? It is commonly said : e4 = open game, d4 = closed game, which is very inaccurate.

I recommend you start with 1 e4 and follow up with lines that involve an early d4 eg 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 and now 2 ...Nc6 3 d4 or 2..Nf6 3 d4

Try the scotch opening, the central pawns are exchanged early.
