Does everyone use a single die and roll it as a 'special' Moby attack? Or does it trigger a 'normal' Moby attack using both dice against the boat strength?

If it's a single die roll, does the active player subsequently roll a 'normal' 2 dice Moby attack?

It´s 1 regular attack per player.
Roll for each player (2d6 if more than 3 sailors, 1d6 if 3 or less).

From the FAQ:
"How does Ancient Wisdom work during the final hunt?
All players must roll a Moby Dick attack. This counts as the Moby Dick attack against the player who drew Ancient Wisdom. They do not have to roll twice."

Thanx, just seems weird what you do is completely unrelated to the game text on the card.

I suppose it DOES seem to follow the 'universe's practical joke' quote from the book though!

thanx again
