I have to say it hasn't happened in any game I've played.

The games I play are foccussed on trying to achieve goals, or forcing
people to discard so they can't achieve goals, which usually resolves
in lots of plays and discards.

Can be quite vicious too.

The only way I can see it happening is if you are playing with 10 or
more people, Draw 5, Play 1, and no one playing any "Hand Limit X" or
"Play X" cards.
