Even tho I don't personally like it... I understand that Osman is basically Strider 2, so I do get why someone might want to own it.
Charlie Ninja tho? The only thing I understand about that game is its rare, the game itself is mediocre at best (and I'm trying to be nice with that).
I think the hype train is in full effect on this PCB, just because its rare dont mean its desirable/good.
It would be like going on eBay one day, to find out Pit Fighter is now worth/selling for 500$ (and it could be a multi for Martial Champion/Time Killers/Street Fighter the Movie).

Osman is without question the stand out game, and IMO it's a great game. Chain reaction/magical drop is a pretty fun puzzle game, as is Gonta 2 despite it's theme enough so that I actually picked up another one after I converted my first one to Osman.
I honestly haven't played much of Charlie Ninja and Joe&Mac Returns but I see people looking for those game often, and I find that platformers are a pretty under-served genre in arcades, even the mediocre ones can be pretty fun.
I bought Charlie Ninja because it was fun and back when it was < $100, so I have no bias regarding cost or rarity.

Charlie Ninja is freaking awesome!
What’s it worth money wise? That’s for you to decide.
By the way, I also like Pit Fighter, but paid like $65 shipped for that.
Finding it odd what people pay for things is funny, because someone’s time and effort are factors too.
To me, getting a game I want now is worth more money than my time hunting it down, maybe that’s not true for someone else, but games are my only hobby and I don’t have kids, and I make pretty good money!
