high hand

Match play rules: high hand, corners, skunks and points

So we received large 4-track cribbage board this Christmas and it has extra tracks for points, skunks, high hand, corners, and games. I have scoured the Internet and can't find anywhere that describes how to use these. We have just been using the points by tallying the points each player has at the end of each game, but from looking online I am under the impression that you can incorporate the other tracks into the points.

Also, we understand the corners, game and skunk tracks, but the high hand is ambiguous. Does it mean the person with the highest hand per deal (including pegging and/or crib), or the person with the highest hand the whole game?

Since we've been playing for points we don't keep track of game winneres, but I've seen some explanations where winning games add points to your score. I find it amazing that even the official cribbiabe rules don't have tournament rule explanations. Any help on this would be appreciated!
