do you have more then 8 players in your map (computer players do not count), if not you can use the "pick every player in <all players> and do actions" action, you can find it at playergroup

  • Events
    • Unit - A unit enters Region 006
  • Conditions
  • Actions
    • Playergroup - pick every player in all players and do Actions
      • Loop - Actions
        • Visibility - create an initially Enabled visibility modifier for picked player emitting Visibility across Region 006

You don't mean variable, you mean function.
I will edit this post to make it more useful after dinner.
EDIT: I've finished dinner [it was delicious, thanks for asking.]. Variables are just values, you don't use them to pick anything. You could however set a unitgroup variable to the required 8 players at initialization and then call it whenever you need it.
If you didn't understand what I just said I suggest you use the search feature of this forum in association with the strings below:
  • variable
  • tutorial
