The Minotaur Encounter refers to one of the cards you can walk onto in the game. A somewhat-late occurring card, it can only be added to your Encounter Deck after besting the Queen of Scales, the tenth Court Boss (first of the last row).

The Encounter is simple, kill a Minotaur. Doing that is a might bit difficult if approached like any standard combat. The Minotaur is fast, hits hard, and doesn't flinch when hit by your weapon. He has two standard attacks; one is a chain of four melee attacks which is unblockable, and the other is a charge.

While there is a window of opportunity to batter him with two hits after he finishes his chain, I found it much safer to get some distance between him and you. He will charge and, if you maneuver correctly, will bash right into a wall and become stunned for a moment or two. This is the time to pounce on him with two swift blows and then roll away quickly; the Minotaur is quick to retaliate.

The arena in which you fight him in is littered with pillars that he can smack into and become stunned, so having an awareness of his charge trajectory is critical if you want to get your two hits off.

Play this one safe, and be patient.
