Try your hand at our new Soaps trivia and let us know how you fare.

Soap operas have been around more than 70 years, regaling soap fans with addictive storylines revolving around family, love, loss, affairs, baby switches, kidnappings and all sorts of fun daytime drama. Recently, Y&R celebrated its 45th anniversary followed by General Hospital’s 55th anniversary and every year we breathe a sigh of relief when one of the four remaining soaps are picked up for another year, like when NBC renewed Days of our Lives in March.

Last month, tested our readers on how well they knew CBS’ number one soap through our The Young and the Restless trivia game and now we’re asking soap fans to test their knowledge on the history of various past and present soaps. Everything from when the soaps first broadcast on the radio, to other debuts for individual soaps. We touch base on super-couples, siblings, marriages and more. Whether you’re a fan of veteran soaps such as Peyton Place, Ryan’s Hope or The Doctors, some of the more recently canceled stories like All My Children, As the World Turns, Passions or Port Charles… or maybe you’ve been a longtime fan or a new viewer of one of the four current soaps, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital and The Young and the Restless… we invite you to test your knowledge of just how well you know the soap genre.
