Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 8

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 (click here to go to last weeks post) [and if you thought Season 13 that came down to one vote was close, wait til you see these results]:

  • S07, E15 (Bart the Fink) and S07, E25 (Summer of 4 Ft. 2) tied each other with the exact same number of votes (a first in Bracket Battle history), and both will move on to the next round
  • S14, E13 (A Star is Born-Again) barely beat S14, E12 (I’m Spelling as Fast as I Can) by under twenty votes with 54% of the votes
  • S21, E01 (Homer the Whopper) barely beat S21, E09 (Thursdays with Abie) by just 9 votes with 51% of the votes
  • S29, E20 (Throw Grampa from the Dane) beat S29, E10 (Haw-Haw Land) with 71% of the votes


Here’s the updated Bracket unveiled:

Now without further ado, our eighth and final set of head-to-head Round 1 matchups featuring the Season 1 to 7 wildcards, 8 to 14 wildcards, 22, and 30 matchups:

  1. I wonder how hard it is for EA to get real living people as game characters. I think they only have Matt Groening and Weird Al right now, but Stephen Hawking was still alive when his character was introduced.

  2. The first one’s premium character should be as requested as Sarah Wiggum. The second one could make a good mini event. The third one’s premium characters would make good characters. The last one aired the day after my birthday. (I was originally going to comment with the emojis but I couldn’t)

    • I didn’t realise the emojis didn’t make the comment. I chose S6, E11; S10, E13; S22, E11 (correction to my original comment, Grizzly Shaun and the Junipers would make great characters); S30, E21.

  3. Season 4 Episode 22 (Bette Middler, Johnny Carson, Shelbyville Stars Tour Bus)
    Season 8 Episode 20 (Repot Depot Building, Repot Depot Can)
    Season 22 Episode 10 (Anita Rachel Connie “Cool Mom’s”, Ross and Tyler)
    Season 30 Episode 18 (all the Bossy Riot Members, Krusty Kon Convention Center)

    Thanks for taking me down memory lane, Safi 😊👍

  4. I found the choices to be really easy this week.

    Also I’m pretty sure we already have mo’s as a skin for moes tavern.

  5. We already have the Bart Sphinx and Bart Statue.
