I still haven't scanned Cult Opera of the 1970s.  This one has 11 DVDs in 10 keep cases (one of the operas in long enough to need two discs), so the front and back are quite small compared to the side, and the DVD spines line up to make the title, and the main color of the spine on each is different.  The packaging kind of overstates the psychedelic nature of the productions, and also emphasizes that these are some of the earliest color television broadcasts of operas (many of which, such as Wozzeck, were not recordings of theatrical productions but done on film  sets and locations).

I'm not really sure how I should approach scanning the box since I can include only front and back covers.

I also have two DVD games here, 027084450422 (Movie Scene It? 2nd Edition and 076930404669 (Trivial Pursuit DVD Pop Culture). Do we include DVD games? And these are larger than my scanner, so how to show the image?

Not sure about the Cult Opera, but the two games you list are definitely board games. We shouldn't list those. "Interactive DVD" games are another matter, but they don't come with board game components. Only the DVD player and remote is needed for those.

A Google Search shows multiple images of the Cult Opera of the 1970s boxed set from several angles.  If I interpret "Front cover" and "back cover" strictly, it (at least the front cover) would look like the Amazon photo, but to me that looks a bit misleading.

No, definitely not.
