Is it acceptable to say "You can't imagine how much tired I am" instead of "You can't imagine how tired I am"?

"How much" goes before nouns". It doesn't work before adjectives.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
...except in a sentence like 'How much hot milk do you want?'
There are 5 BNC citations for 'much surprised, 147 for 'very surprised'.

What about "How much more tired were you after the game"?
That sounds OK to me.
