_game.rhtml_spec

require File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../../spec_helper'

describe "/games/_game.rhtml" do
  include GamesHelper

  before do
    game = mock_model(Game,
      :name => 'The Battle for Blaze',
      :salt_grains => 5000000,
      :people => 5000000,
      :days => nil,
      :created_at => "Mon Oct 01 00:02:44 -0400 2007",
      :enabled => true)
    game.should_receive(:name).and_return('The Battle for Blaze')
    game.should_receive(:salt_grains).and_return(5000000)
    game.should_receive(:people).and_return(5000000)
    game.should_receive(:days).and_return(nil)
    game.should_receive(:created_at).and_return("Mon Oct 01 00:02:44 -0400
2007")
    game.should_receive(:enabled).and_return(true)

    @game = game
  end

  it "should show game name" do
    render :partial =>"games/game", :locals => {:game => @game}
    response.should have_text(/The Battle for Blaze/)
  end

end

When you say full listing did you mean html format?
I cut out most of my specs just to spec the partial.
I only have the one spec in my partial
