Clash of Clones
Clash of Clones

August 19, 2014 - October 7, 2014

The Clash of Clones Event was the tenth major event in The Simpsons: Tapped Out. This event was made available to players on August 19, 2014. The main quest for this event was Prince and the Premise.

This update also brought new land to Springfield. 16 new plots of land were added to the bottom right of the player's Springfield (the land farthest from the mountains).

This event had two different types of currency; Elixir and Gold. Players could send Nerds to attack other Springfields. At the beginning the number of nerds was limited to 40 but this could go up by upgrading Castles. Elixir and Gold could also be earned by shielding your buildings or by rebuilding them when another player attacked (done by tapping/clicking, players did not need to repurchase buildings).

Once players collected 800 Gold they unlock the ability to buy cheaters. Cheaters allow you to wreck a building immediately (instead of sending nerds) or they will defend your buildings under attack.

The event preceded the Treehouse of Horror XXV Event, as only Major Event followed by another.

Costumes and Buildings could be upgraded during this event. Upgrades gave more benefits and unlocked new items. Elixir and Gold could be used for these upgrades. The Gold used was not lost, players just had to reach a certain amount for the upgrade. However the Elixir used was spent.

Upgrades to buildings increased nerd production, raised the amount of nerds a town could have, and increased the defense of a town. Increasing a defense bonus gave an extra hour of time to all attacks on that town, this gave players more time to notice attacks.

The following buildings/costumes could be upgraded:

Saturday Troop Replenishment

Every Saturday at 2:00 PM (EST) player's nerd counts would increase to the max amount. This happened every week during the event. Players who already had a max amount of nerds did not get more as nerds cannot be saved after the max limit is reached.


This poll ran during the event. Players were asked: What do you think of this event?
