About Fantasy Soap League
The website fantasysoapnet.com was created for Fantasy Soap League, an Internet-based game modeled after fantasy football. In fantasy football, you draft a “fantasy” team of football players from all different teams. You could have a running back on the Eagles and a kicker on the Ravens. You earn points depending on how each of “your” players performs. So, even if the Ravens lose a game, but the kicker on your fantasy team does well, you will earn points.
Fantasy Soap League is similar in that you draft a “fantasy” team or “dream team”, only it is a team of your favorite Soaps Characters and Soaps Moments. Erica Kane, Victor Newman, or “Wearing red to a funeral” – these are your players!
On the landing page of the website, you will see a description of how you can play by using the site.
How does it work?
You sign up as an individual and be part of one, large “Public League.” This means you are competing against every other person who joins as an individual in one universal Public League.

The website features four links:
A Learn About the Game link where you can click on Get Started and you will be taken to the page where the game is described. It lets viewers understand how the game works. For some, this might be the page of the site where they will know if this game is for them or not. Some avid soap opera fans find it amusing to finally have a game where they can play as their favorite soap opera characters, with the drama and love affairs combined.
It also has a Join Today link where non-members can subscribe and start playing by clicking the Get Started button. A subscription service that rewards the avid soap viewer for watching their show, Fantasy Soap League can be joined for $9.99 for a renewable ten-week cycle. Participants “earn” points when the soap stars on their fantasy teams do well in the game of soaps.
The website offers a How to Earn Points link where you can click the Get Started button and you will be taken to a page where there are tips on how you can win the game by earning more points. Participants “earn” points when the soap stars on their fantasy teams do well in the game of soaps. All nine soaps (All My Children, As the World Turns, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, Guiding Light, One Life to Live, Passions, and The Young and the Restless) are scored Monday-Friday.
The last link is a Research Characters and Moments link where viewers can choose which player they want to be, or watch specific players and characters play. Fantasy Soap League participants choose a roster of soap characters and soap moments (i.e., Erica Kane, Victor Newman, and “Discovering you have a twin”) to create a team. The object is to match top characters and top moments with a storyline from any of the nine soaps. The tallying of points is done by the Soap Squad, a group of nine ardent soap viewers, who keep track of points Monday-Friday. Participants can make changes to their line-ups Friday-Sunday to maximize points for the upcoming week.
There are also Open Groups that you can start or join. For example, “Ga-Ga for GH?” Join the Open Group called “Ga-Ga for GH!”
History of FSL Soap
Fantasy Soap League is modeled after fantasy football. But instead of drafting and rooting for athletes, Soaps fans get to draft and root for their favorite characters and their favorite Soaps Moments! Instead of charting a QB’s passing yards or a kicker’s field goals, the Soap League tracks soap characters’ “soap moments.” If characters on your team of six get slapped, take off clothing, wake up from a coma, or participate in other soap staples, you score points. For $10, the site tracks progress over ten weeks.
Fantasy football participants “earn” points when the athletes on their fantasy team do well in the game of football – scoring touchdowns and kicking field goals. Fantasy Soap League participants “earn” points when the characters on their fantasy team do well in the game of Soaps – discover they have a twin or interrupt a much-anticipated wedding! You earn points through characters as well as their actions. Whatever your favorite soap opera, there’s now a way for you to cheer on your favorite characters just like gridiron fans do with fantasy football leagues. Yes, believe it or not, there’s a fantasy soap league too. This fantasy soap game is a unique opportunity to bring fans into soap characters’ lives and have the characters exist 24/7 on the internet between shows.
