Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 2

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.

We created a Bracket of 64 awesome episodes that would provide freemium and premium characters, NPCs, skins for existing characters, decorations, and/or buildings.

These 64 episodes from the past 30 seasons will then battle each other in six rounds of head-to-head matchups, that we hope produces the most debate in the comments below. Every Monday over summer, we’ll post that week’s matchups and your votes will determine which episode content advances to the next round, until we’ve crowned “The Most Desired Episode Content” on Monday September 2nd.

General housekeeping rules and guidelines can be seen here in the Week 1 battle.


Here are the results from last week:

  • S01, E07 easily beat S01, E02 with 80% of the vote
  • S08, E04 beat S08, E19 with 73% of the vote
  • S15, E20 barely beat S15, E04 by fewer than 30 votes with 52% of the votes
  • S23, E04 barely beat S20, E13 by fewer than 60 votes with 54% of the votes


Here’s the updated Bracket unveiled:

Now without further ado, our second set of head-to-head matchups featuring the Season 2, 9, 16, and 24 matchups:

  1. Decisions decisions decisions 🤔

    Season 2 Episode 2 (Homer w/ mullet, Hair Clinic Building)
    Season 9 Episode 12 (Colonel Tex’s Traveling Circus)*
    Season 16 Episode 10 (Veronica, Page’s RX Building)
    Season 24 Episode 7 (Emily, King Toke’s Building)**

    ** We already have the Devil Donuts Cart, (how about a Devil Donuts Sign)
    *We already got the Tooth Chipper Roller Coaster in Krustyland, (so EA better think of the different Carny Ride from this Episode)

  2. Let the booting begin

    Could you please use the episode titles when you’re telling us who won?

    • “CANDU”, for Canada Deuterium Uranium, is a Canadian pressurized heavy-water reactor design used to generate electric power.

      And “can do”, for sure, is my response to your request.

      • This CANDU reactor sounds to me like Canada has designed (and possibly created) a precursor to a Star Trek warp core, a matter/antimatter reactor core that uses deuterium for fuel as the “matter” part. Now all Canada has to do is figure out how create faster than light engines that actually work.

    • LOL! People.

      So…that thing called GOOGLE…if put in N6 of the winners ind the search bar…it will take you to a link that will also have the episode.

  3. Howell Huser!!! 6/10

  4. I don’t see why Season 15-Episode 4 and Season 23-Episode 13 didn’t win. In my opinion, they both had the better content choices for their respective seasons as represented in this year’s Bracket Battle.

  5. Done and done.

  6. Karate Milhouse , yes yes yes

  7. I’ve been farming and emptying the yearbook…but with an update coming…possibly Tuesday or Wednesday…I would like peoples thoughts on if I should save these 30 donuts every 4 hours because of the update, or keep emptying the yearbook, even though I have all the cool stuff. Opinions?????

    • Save the donuts and if nothing good happens you can still spend them on the yearbook, unless you think it’s going to end, nevertheless if you’ve got everything you really wanted from the yearbook I think hanging onto the donuts is probably wisest.

    • There’s no guarantee the yearbook is going to stick around with the update. I think you should get whatever you think you might want from the yearbook now.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      I’m in the same boat, but I think the yearbook will remain so I am going to take my chances.

    • at 30 donuts a 4 hour cycle you should be making 120 donuts a day, at least if you do it 4 times a day. in this case you should be fine buying more for that bonus percent or more characters as at the rate your going you should be able to buy everything event related even without saving

      • Hey just wondered if it KEM farming 120 dounuts a day then how many r u farming at one time every 4 hours? Recently new to this lol

  8. This week was a no brainer for me, however I do have to note that both the tooth chipper and devil’s donut cart are already part of the game. Other than that, good choices this week.

    • Thanks for the reminder. I should run these items by Wookie, Pat, and Alissa. A lot of content could have been added over the past couple years; as I made this Bracket Battle a couple years ago. If the episodes advance, I will replace .

        Mark this date in your calendar! Because, what this means, is….

        • Was it a mistake? Or was it testing if readers are still paying attention and interested in the Bracket Battle 4 years in?

          • It was a Feature, Mr. Math Wizard

          • Tracy-1ltwoody920

            Once upon a time, I was communicating with my Safety Officer on an issue and I transposed a name. The SO smugly pointed out my error.
            I replied, “ the only appropriate response would be inappropriate, so I shall simply say, You are right, I was wrong”
            And he came back, on company emails(OMG)
            That’s ok, you can call me an *** ****. Others have, and I deserve it. (And he didn’t use ***)

            So, dear Safi, I deserve it, you can call me it.

  9. Thanks Safi this is fun!

  10. Nelson’s dad swung my vote.

  11. The Tooth Chipper is already in the game.

    • Thanks for the reminder. I should run these items by Wookie, Pat, and Alissa. A lot of content could have been added over the past couple years; as I made this Bracket Battle a couple years ago. If the episode advances, I will replace it.

      • It shouldn’t matter to much in the context, because you’re doing an episode battle. So really you can just pull the tooth chipper out, wouldn’t change the other episode content. 🙂

  12. Thanks a lot Safi 😍
