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.

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):

  • S05, E03 (Homer Goes to College) beat S06, E01 (Bart of Darkness) with 62% of the votes
  • S12, E18 (Trilogy of Errors) beat S13, E13 (The Old Man and the Key) with 69% of the votes
  • S20, E03 (Double, Double, Boy in Trouble) barely beat S19, E04 (I Don’t Wanna Know Why the Caged Bird Sings) by just 20 votes with 53% of the votes
  • S27, E13 (Love is in the N2-O2-Ar-CO2-Ne-He-CH4) beat S28, E15 (Kamp Krustier) with 60% of the votes


Here’s the updated Bracket unveiled:

Now without further ado, our fourth and final set of head-to-head Round 2 matchups featuring the Season 7 vs 1-7 wildcard, 14 vs 8-14 wildcard, 21 vs 22, and 29 vs 30 matchups:

  1. Thanks Safi. Bracket Battle is great!! I look forward to it Monday mornings!! Will miss it when we are done. In my own little TSTO world of wants, I would like Rory B Bellows as a full character not a skin. Plus as a Canadian I want all the Canadian content!!! The Mountie ridding around Springfield on a horse would be awesome!!

  2. When are we going to get a list on the new and returning stuff in the event that I finished today.

  3. Aha , Safi snuck a three-way challenge in there 😉
    Season 7 Episode 25
    Season 14 Episode 13
    Season 21 Episode 1
    Season 30 episode 21 (Team Canada, eh!)

    • Had to stick a three-way challenge in there. We had our first ever tie when voting on season seven in week seven was dead even.

  4. nice.. on the first battle (3 way battle) it won’t make it large for me, I click and I click on the pic to make it larger and nothing happens. I made a somewhat educated guess 🙂
