I made it pass!
I just had to do some stubbing.

    @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)

    #player_1 = mock_model(Player, :salt_grains => '500')
    #player_2 = mock_model(Player, :salt_grains => '900')
    #players = [ player_1, player_2 ]

    players = mock('post_proxy')
    players.stub!(:build).and_return(mock_model(Player, :save => true))
    @game.stub!(:players).and_return(players)
    players.stub!(:count).and_return(2)
