Nope, all three go from "less light" to "more light" (left to right), even though ISO doesn't affect the actual exposure (quantity of light) per se, rather what is done with it (how much it is amplified).
Good point. I used 'exposure' in a sloppy way... a large friendly arrow pointing to the right saying "Photo More Brighter" might be appropriate.

I don't see a difference, that one looks exactly the same as the one posted by OP...

I should have made clear that what the OP shared already is a 2nd edition of that cheatcard, but an earlier one where the f-numbers still had commas in them, which is how they appear in German usage, where the English has points of course.

The 1st-edition cheatcard used to present the f-stop scale the other way round, starting with F1.4 on the left. This was changed, because some users felt it deviated from the two other rows, which started with the smallest numbers on the left. Hence, my statement that the card is obviously intended to be read in rows, rather than columns.

Oh okay I see now. I didn't notice that at all, good eye!

I think they should revise it and add a note or instructions saying which direction the card should be read.
