Could you point out where in Conway's book this comparison of surreals 
and hyperreals happens?

In the mechanical proof-assistant Isabelle both the hyperreals and 
partizan games (the stuff out of which surreals are made) have been 
formalized, and I would like  to formalize the connection between them, 
if there is any. Unfortunately I don't know the connection, can someone 
provide links?
