Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Real Life Celebrity, Week 10

It was six 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 oddest of NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs of all times due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and it’s time for our sixth 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 have been A LOT of incredible guest stars appearing as themselves in the rich history of The Simpsons universe. A rare few of these (like Stephen Hawking and Weird Al) have made their way into our games. However, hundred are 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. I thought of making the Bracket Battle start with 128 entries, but we’d be battling well into fall. With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Real Life Celebrity Bracket Battle.

Should You Buy Muscular Milhouse?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, spending actual cash on donuts for a character is back in TSTO.  This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them)  Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character to one of the donut bundles in addition to bonus donuts.

This time around we’re being offered Muscular Milhouse,  a premium character (NOT a costume), for a truckload of 300 Donuts ($19.99 in the US)..no bonus this time around.  While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of Muscular Milhouse, his tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.

So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Real Life Celebrity, Week 6 (Again due to glitch – Third times a charm)

Note: Unfortunately due to an unknown WordPress glitch with the polls, none of the votes cast last week were counted resulting in no results last week. Therefore we will repeat Week 6 this week. We tried using WordPress again earlier this morning and made sure the voting works this week; but it didn’t. So here we are again today using a different polling system, with the voting for all 8 battles following all 8 tales of the tape (so be sure to scroll down). Please note, this glitch will push the remaining Bracket Battle by one week. The winner will be announced September 26, not September 19. The updated Bracket with updated dates is in the post.
