TSTO Character Profile: Brunella Pommelhorst

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A new character arrived during the Flanders Family Reunion event, that’s neither a Flanders or a direct premium purchase.   With the arrival of Coach Pommelhorst in the Yard Sale Mystery Box (the only new character to make an appearance there), she doesn’t really warrant a SIB post.  And since she’s not an event prize, she doesn’t really fit into the prize posts.  So how do we cover Brunella?  Time to bring back the TSTO Character Profiles!

So here’s a look at the details, and tasks, behind Brunella, Springfield newest Gym Teacher…

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 12

It was five years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are in the thick of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs again, and it’s time for our fifth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there is A LOT of content in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. There is so much in fact, that it was hard just to narrow it down to 64 entries to start with. With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Episode Content Bracket Battle.
