How long does the setup take and should I be worried about it?

I also have Fire in the Lake and this one scares me even more...

The beginning set up is on the map, so it probably takes 5-10 minutes to put the pieces in place. Creating the deck takes a few minutes. So 10-12 minutes tops.

yeah all the coin games are fairly straight forward in terms of setup and really shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes from box open to ready to go.

And 15-30 seconds tops for the cat to make a mess of your setup. laugh
With multiple players it can take even less time as the board has all the starting positions marked. FitL takes longer but not significantly more time. Could save a few minutes by doing setting up on the card deck beforehand, although that might require a certain level of trust from the other players.

Setup is pretty much by the book. The toughest part is learning where everything is on the map.

Fire in the Lake was tougher for me, as I at least knew a little Colombian geography. Aside from Saigon and a couple places near the DMZ such as Quang Tri, Hue and Da Nang, I had no idea where anything was in Vietnam.

Check the files section of the FitL page. Every scenario's setup is available via Vassal screenshot. VERY helpful in expediting setup!
