Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 14

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):

  • S01, E07 (The Call of the Simpsons) beat S03, E09 (Saturdays of Thunder) with 64% of the vote
  • S11, E14 (Alone Again Natura-Diddily) beat S08, E04 (Burns, Baby Burns) with 61% of the votes
  • S18, E18 (The Boys of Bummer) barely beat S15, E20 (The Way We Weren’t) by just 3 votes with 51% of the votes
  • S23, E04 (Replaceable You) barely beat S26, E16 (Sky Police) by just 17 votes with 53% of the votes


Here’s the updated Bracket unveiled:

    whew! tough choices, thanks Safi!

  2. Are we going do a bracket in March since in the state it is March madness. (NCAA men basketball tournament with 68 teams, yes 68 is right, women have a 64 team tournament.) Three weeks mid March to early April single elimination tournament.

  3. Wow, that’s a lot of borders !!!!!. I’ve only been to the New York- Niagara falls one. Who knew? Sad I did!!! Lol

  4. fun choices.. 🙂 love the challenge to decide on episodes and content..

    • Hi Koolviruz, I know it was a couple of weeks ago but I wanted to thank for your kind words in reference to my husband’s passing. Thank you again and my whatever God’s you believe in watch over you.

  5. Season 30 episode 21 The Canadian Border. We already have that one, don’t we? Yes, I already have that!

    • Nope. That episode just ran a couple of months ago, items from it aren’t in our game. We have the border from the Midnight Rx Episode…looks different

    • No, you do have a Canadian border, but not that one. Canada has numerous borders: Three in Niagara Falls-Buffalo alone, Two in Windsor-Detroit, Sarnia-Blue Water, Cornwall-Messena, etc., etc.

      I believe the one in the game is the one en route from Minot, North Dakota to Winnipeg, Manitoba. And the one in this episode is from Buffalo, New York to Niagara Falls, Ontario.
