Maybe my link didn't work but I was suggesting this tie-breaker variant:

At the start of the game, mix up the coloured flags and line them face-up from left to right along the top of the board. This sequence of flags determines the hierarchy of the first tie-break. When the first tie-break occurs, arrange the tied cards in sympathy with the rank of the corresponding flags. Then move the right hand flag to the left hand end of the queue. Continue on this basis, remembering to send the lead flag to the back of the queue after resolving each tie-break. (Days with X tie-breaks have X flag movements).I don't see how red could always outrank yellow in that scenario?
This variant is unobtrusive and simple to administer. Also, knowing where you currently lie in the pecking order adds a bit more strategy to the card play, although your plans can be unsettled by multiple tie-breaks in a day.
