Both two-player games I've now played the player who simply focused on cathedral building (never built an extra ship, ignored the bank and most other buildings, and sold salt to make money) and managed to get to 70 won the game handily. How do you counter the cathedral building rush?

In a two player game, the most you can get for Notre Dame is 45. Seventy points can only be achieved in a four player game.
