Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 5

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:

  • S04, E14 (Brother from the Same Planet) barely beat S04, E04 (Lisa the Beauty Queen) by less than 20 votes with 52% of the vote
  • S11, E14 (Alone Again, Natura-Diddily) beat S11, E16 (Pygmoelian) with 69% of the vote
  • S18, E18 (The Boys of Bummer) beat S18, E05 (G.I. D’oh) with 63% of the votes
  • S26, E16 (Sky Police) barely beat S26, E15 (The Princess Guide) by 5 votes with 51% of the votes


Here’s the updated Bracket unveiled:

Now without further ado, our fifth set of head-to-head matchups featuring the Season 5, 12, 19, and 27 matchups:

  1. This week was more difficult than last week since all the choices were great episodes in my opinion. I chose:
    Homer Goes to College for Dean Bobby Peterson and Sir Oinks-A-Lot for a possible Springfield U event since Springfield University is already in the game.
    The Computer Wore Menace Shoes for the Toilet Paper Boat and Flamingo, The Debarted for Donny, the orphanage and a whole load of possible content from the episode, I would also like to see tasks for Bart and Donny at See-Saws launching trash. This was also one of the earliest episode I watched that got me into the show.
    Friend With Benefit for Harper, Mike and their mansion for a possible Springfield Heights update.

  2. Great challenge! Barely eeked out one side over the other for a vote! Radioactive Homer vs. itty bitty Jay. 😨 i need an indecisive, nail biting emoji. Like, seriously! 🤣

  3. Season 5 Episode 3 (Radioactive Homer Simpson, Nuclear Inspection Van)
    Season 12 Episode 18 (Cletus’s Truck, Chauffeur Teeny)
    Season 19 Episode 13 (Shelbyville Orphanage, Springfield Auto)
    Season 27 Episode 13 (Nookie Kwan, Mandy)

    Whew! Safi, I have to say deciding on an episode is proving to be quite challenging because every one of them has some sort of Building, Character, Skin, Decor that’s been an item Tappers have wanted for a long time. 🤓👍

  4. Thanks a lot Safi! Unfortunately, Trilogy of Error is my favorite episode ever, so I will stand by it till the end ✊

    • I’ve mentioned in the comments and on Addicts Live a few times that The Debarted (The Simpsons take on The Departed) is one of my favourite episodes from season 15 onwards. It too is up for a battle this week. Let’s see if your and my favourites move on to Round 2. Good luck!

  5. Safi, first of all thank you for this great challenge itself!

    Would you mind however to generally insert an hyperlink at ‘Here are the results from last week’ linking to the last week’s blog entry? This would provide a little more convenience for revisualizing the previous battles.

    Greets from Berlin!

  6. it feels like it was leaning more towards the first option (the left side).. at least for me it was all about the left. 🙂 way to go for left handed people.. rise up and conquer the left side of the world.

    • If the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, then only left-handers are in their right mind!
      Lefties of the world Unite! 💁‍♂️

  7. We already have Corporal Punishment as a charcter

  8. There’s probably a mix-up. Corporal Punishment is already in the game. I don’t think we need another one as an NPC.

    • Thanks. I did notice it last night when I was about to post, but am currently in Portugal and unable to edit the picture until I get back to Canada. Unfortunately a lot of these Bracket Battles were made a couple years ago.
