[rspec-users] spec'ing view render partial collection, local variable not found

As soon as I add a second key to the hash it gives me that error

before do
  game = mock_model(Game, :name => 'The Battle for Blaze', :enabled =>
'true')
  game.should_receive(:name).and_return('The Battle for Blaze')
  game.should_receive(:enabled).and_return('true')

  @game = game
end

1)
Spec::Mocks::MockExpectationError in '/games/_game.rhtml should show game
name'
Mock 'Game_1082' expected :enabled with (any args) once, but received it 0
times
./spec/views/games/_game.rhtml_spec.rb:19:

But if it only has name it works fine.

?!??! I have other mock models setup that don't give me that trouble.
